  • Hey guys, I guess this is a question for two leagues i'm in. With where I'm picking, there's a chance I'll have a shot at Le'Veon. Probably around there I'd expect Dez, LeVeon, Keenan, Cooks, Dough Martin, Mike Evans, Ingram. Who would you take over LeVeon out of those and would it depend on what my earlier pick looks like? Both leagues are 0.5 PPR.

    1st league I'll probably have either Gurley or David Johnson.

    Other league is keeper and I'm keeping AJ Green and Keenan Allen.

  • 10-team H2H league (6-team playoff) with 0.5 PPR and QB stats being 50 yards = 1 point while TD pass = 6 pts. Positions are QB, 2 WR, 2 RB, 1 TE, 1 W/R, 1 W/R/T, 1 DEF, 1 K, 6 BN. I can pick up to 2 keepers for the avg of the pick they were drafted in and the pick of the round Yahoo has them ranked in (rule to promote players eventually going back in the draft). I need help as I'm in a terrible situation. I have the 7th overall pick so I go 7, 14, 27, 34, etc. Here are the prices of some options I have, could change depending on how Yahoo updates rank.

    AJ Green - 2nd round, Keenan Allen - 4th round, Randall Cobb - 3rd round, Jarvis Landry - 11th round, Tyler Lockett - 12th round, Dion Lewis - 12th round, Danny Woodhead - 9th round

    I feel that Green is best option but unsure who else I should keep. I was leaning Allen as a WR1 for a 4th pick is great value but worried about him getting hurt or if he'll be solid again. I like Cobb to bounce back and be a top 10 WR but don't know I can keep him over Allen even though I think he'll outproduce him. Landry has a nice price and could be a solid PPR play but there's talk of Devante Parker becoming the #1 WR in Miami plus Landry is a WR3 as of now and I don't know if it's wise to go that route. Lockett or Lewis are decent options at that price but again, would you keep them over the studs I mentioned before? I threw in Woodhead as well as he's quietly been a solid PPR play over the years and I don't have RB options.

    For now I'm leaning Green for sure and debating between the other 4 WR (especially since Lewis is hurt). Who do you feel I should keep?

    Overvalued/Undervalued Players and when to take QBs?

    Yeah I guess my logic with Demarco is I worry about him getting hurt and I feel like Derrick Henry could break out this year.

    As far as QBs go, I feel like Cam might be the only one taking early. I have no doubt A-Rod will have a solid year or even the other QBs you mentioned but I feel like I'd benefit more by stacking on RBs, WRs or even grabbing a TE like Reed or Olsen if they're available, then waiting and settling for a QB late. Of course I know of the risk of people taking a backup QB haha but I normally make sure to keep an eye on who's missing QBs so I can grab one late like say Brady lol.

  • In a 10-team league 0.5 PPR keeper league (2 keepers for avg of draft price and Yahoo rank next year). I'm 2-0 sitting in 1st but I've gotten off to hot starts the past two years and collapsed to miss playoffs. One year because I traded away studs for depth which backfired, last year I made a lack of moves to keep ahead. Right now, my team's been decimated by injuries (lost Keenan and Woodhead). Was offered this trade.

    I get: Jordy Nelson + Emmanuel Sanders and give up: Allen Robinson + Duke Johnson

    I was also offered Hilton for Robinson.

    My team is QB - Carr, WR - AJ Green, Robinson, RB - CJ Anderson, Matt Jones, TE - Olsen, W/R - Larry Fitz, W/R/T - Julius Thomas, BN - Duke Johnson, Jay Ajayi, Sproles, Phillip Dorsett, Asiata, Lockett, IR - Keenan Allen

    Would you take the Jordy deal? It's not a bad offer as Duke is droppable but Sanders may be as well and I worry about Jordy being injury prone. Plus I've put up most points in the league and I don't want to make a panic move though my depth is suspect...I'm just unsure Sanders helps me there. The Hilton deal I wouldn't take straight up but because of the Colts offense and Hilton's cheaper keeper price....I could look into it though I'd rather keep Green and CJ. Maybe I could ask for Hilton + an RB? Thoughts?

  • Need 1 RB and 1 flex from the following in a 0.5 PPR format:
    Matt Jones, Ajayi, Julius Thomas, Tyler Lockett, Phillip Dorsett

    Which RB and flex would you start?

  • 10-team H2H league (6-team playoff) with 0.5 PPR.. Positions are QB, 2 WR, 2 RB, 1 TE, 1 W/R, 1 W/R/T, 1 DEF, 1 K, 6 BN. I can pick up to 2 keepers for the avg of the pick they were drafted in and the pick of the round Yahoo has them ranked in (rule to promote players eventually going back in the draft). I have the 7th overall pick so I go 7, 14, 27, 34, etc. I'm keeping AJ Green for sure as he's a 2nd round cost for me. Debating the 2nd keeper between these options.

    Keenan Allen - 4th round, Randall Cobb - 3rd round, Jarvis Landry - 11th round, Tyler Lockett - 12th round

    I was leaning Allen as a WR1 for a 4th pick is great value but worried about him getting hurt or if he'll be solid again. I actually like Cobb to bounce back and outproduce Allen but I can't justify keeping someone going later in drafts at a more expensive price on a hunch. Landry or Lockett are value options but I can't see myself passing up starting the draft with two WR1s and burning just a 2nd and 4th.

    Am I making the right call keeping Allen?

    Do I keep Keenan Allen with AJ Green?

    If I was to guess the other keepers, I'd say Ingram, Doug Martin, Jeffery, Charles, Anderson, Nelson, maybe LeVeon if he slips. Basically the players going late teens - early 20s ADP in standard drafts.

  • Hey there, looking to compile a list of undervalued and overvalued players based on ADP for the upcoming season. Here are some names I've heard floated around...what do you guys think? And would you add/take away any guys?

    Undervalued
    Jeremy Maclin
    Kelvin Benjamin
    Randall Cobb
    Tyler Lockett
    Tim Hightower
    Dion Lewis
    Bilal Powell
    Tevin Coleman
    Duke Johnson
    Coby Fleener

    Overvalued
    Doug Baldwin
    Luck
    Jamaal Charles
    Jeremy Langford
    Dez
    Alshon Jeffery
    Jordan Matthews
    Brandon Marshall
    Demarco Murray
    Sammy Watkins

    So what do you think of this list? Also are there any elite QBs you would spend an early pick on? I like to go elite QB or be one of the last guys picking QBs but I can't see any QBs I'd want early.

    Yeah I think you're right. Just wasn't sure if I'm disregarding the value in keeping say Landry or Lockett.

    Need 1 RB and 1 flex in a 0.5 PPR format

    anyone?

  • 0.5 10-team PPR, burning a 2nd and 4th on keepers AJ Green and Keenan Allen. I'd probably hope to land LeVeon in 1st but if not, would rather take Robinson, Dez or Cooks over Ingram or Charles for secure production. There's a chance I grab a WR in the 3rd so I'd go zero RB first 4 rounds or even rounds 2-4. Who are some nice RBs to target in this format with rounds?

    I have Woodhead/Gore in the 7th, Matt Jones/Langford/Ivory/Duke/Foster in the 6th, Ryan Mathews/Jeremy Hill/Forte in the 5th, maybe Blount or James White later on. Unsure when to stash Dion Lewis but probably the 11th. What do you think?

  • In a 10-team H2H league, 0.5 PPR. I feel like my team is solid.

    QB - Stafford, WR - Cooks, Keenan Allen, RB - Gurley, DeAngelo Williams, TE - Barnidge, W/R/T - Randall Cobb, BN - Carlos Hyde, Matt Jones, Michael Floyd, Blount, Snead, Charcandrick

    I initially drafted Rivers in the 10th but dropped him for Stafford because of matchups. Is this team a title contender? If not, where am I weak and what strentghs could I use to trade and upgrade weaknesses?

    Pick 2 of 4, 0.5 PPR

    Nandan Nandan Sep 16, 2016 12:02 AM Flag

    I was leaning Cobb and Floyd. You trust Pats to run the ball?

  • Landry, Sterling Shepard, or Will Fuller

    Need two of the above 3 in a non-PPR. Leaning Landry and Shepard.

  • In two 10-team 0.5 PPR leagues, I've been offered trades for Ajayi. In one league I got offered James White for Ajayi. In another keeper league, I got offered Vincent Jackson for Ajayi.

    I feel like Ajayi will eventually start due to a Foster injury. That being said I like the White trade but not VJax (especially because I already own Green, Robinson, Keenan, LFitz, Coleman at WR in that league). Am I right in accepting the White trade but not VJax?

    I have him there due to Ingram's injury history

  • 0.5 PPR: Willie Snead, LeGarrette Blount, Randall Cobb or Michael Floyd.

    I'm already starting Brandin Cooks, Gurley, DeAngelo Williams. Just need 2 of the above 4.
