Commissioner Corner Message Board

Right now he's in at Flex. I can sit him and start either Greg Jennings, Lamar Miller or Andrew Hawkins.
Or I can play wait & see, where my only last-minute substitution option is Eric Ebron.

Jennings against St. Louis as the #2 receiver.
Miller is getting the start against NE, but all the fantasy pundits think Moreno will take over by the second half.
Andrew Hawkins is against a mediocre Steelers Defense, and is only one of 2 passing options for Hoyer/Manziel, though who knows how many pass plays that will be.
I think it comes down to who is most likely to score a TD?
Standard/non-PPR league, 3 WR + 2 RB + 1 Flex
Keenan Allen v. Sea
Marques Colston @ Cle
Greg Jennings v. NE
Andrew Hawkins v. NO
Brian Quick @ TB
RB: Marshawn Lynch @ SD (obviously starting) +
Andre Ellington @ NYG
Joique Bell @ Car
Justin Forsett v. Pit
Lamar Miller @ BUF
based on match-ups alone, I'm tempted to sit Allen & Bell*, which leaves me with —
WR: Colston, Jennings, Hawkins
RB: Lynch, Ellington
*Carolina's defense is tough (particularly against the pass), but they gave up 6 yards per rush attempt against Tampa's mediocre-to-feeble running game in Week 1, third worst in the league. So maybe Detroit will run the ball more than pass in Week 2? How good do you think Carolina will be at stopping the run? Thoughts?

Standard / Non-PPR league. Which two should i start?
Ellington @ NYG
Bell @ Car
Forsett v. Pit
i'd drop ivory as i think bradshaw is gonna be the number one back for indy until he gets hurt. he'll get more opportunities to run and score than ivory.
but it's worth asking: who are you picking up that you need to drop one of these guys?
Agree that Forsett is the best bet and also that Richardson is absolute garbage. I'm not sure I would drop him, but I wouldn't consider starting him unless and until he can put together a legitimately strong week (100+ yds, 4.5+ ypc, 1+ TD), and even then, probably not your best option.
Ryan Foles Stafford.
Ryan is probably the most talented of the three, in general, and has a decent matchup – I think both QBs will end up throwing a lot. Most likely to throw 300 yards.
Foles has the best matchup, but Indy tends to fall behind and try to play catchup so Philly may lean more heavily on the run game after getting an early lead.
Stafford has the best weapons, but has an awful matchup and I think he's the most likely of these three to throw one or more INTs.
Unless you're in a REALLY shallow league (8 or fewer teams), there's no reason to drop any of them. You can easily get someone worthwhile by trading Stafford.

I think Jackson's the least bad option you've got. I'd also take Williams over Richardson. I'd take pretty much any other team's top 2 backs before richardson.
F-Jax. He picked up 8.7 ypc last week to Spiller's 3.5, and considering the fact that Miami's offense isn't nearly as good as Chicago's, I think both Buffalo backs will be running more this week. I'd predict between 65 & 80 yards w/ a 50% of paydirt.
Tate not only won't get you a lot of receptions, but he's going against one of the league's best pass defenses. I think he'll get 4-5 catches, maybe 50 yards, and no TDs.

Breaking with the ranks -- I'd much prefer Charles, who I think is a better back these days than Peterson in the first place, and that's before adding Patterson into the equation.
