10-team, full PPR, 1QB
Somehow, I’m 1-2 with this team (CMC, AJB, and Shep injuries crushed me last week). I don’t want to start 1-3, especially considering I’m playing my younger brother this week.
We start 1QB, 2RB, 2WR, 1TE, 2Flex
AJ Brown (probably out)
Sterling Sheppard (probably out)
Michael Thomas (PUP)
I know I’m starting Brady, Harris, Hubbard, Godwin, and Hockenson.
But I have no idea who I should be starting at the WR2 and flex spots. Right now I’m leaning toward:
Aiyuk - he looked better last week and was out there a lot, plus he’s playing against SEA at home.
Anderson - if CMC was healthy I wouldn’t be thinking about this, but Robby should see more targets and will have a good matchup in what could be a shootout @ DAL.
Chark - There’s a good chance he’s going to be facing Eli Apple in coverage and I like that matchup.
But I’m having a hard time because I feel like both Javonte and Patterson could have pretty safe floors this week and Patterson could have another 15+ point week if Ryan has to check down a ton against the WFT defense. Javonte is looking as advertised and it’s only a matter of time, but MG3 is still looking solid, so who knows…
So, the question is: how much upside do I want? Well you tell me. Here’s my brother’s lineup.:
QB Lamar Jackson
RB Saquon Barkley
RB Derrick Henry
WR Diontae Johnson
WR Justin Jefferson
TE Rob Gronk
Flex Julio Jones
What I do have in my favor is that he currently has 6 “Questionable” tags in this lineup and all he has on the bench worth throwing in as replacement players are Hines and Elijah Moore.
