    Considering the matchup and that the Bears have no threat of the pass, no. But I'm with gpp, what other options do you have?

    Hurting in this league because I have David Johnson. My backs are Ty Montgomery, Ameer, Tevin Coleman and Chris Thompson. I need to play two of the backs, but I was leaning on putting Coleman into my Flex. Other flex options are Jamison Crowder, Tyrell Williams, JJ Nelson and Chris Thompson.

    Also, the guy I'm playing has Gurley so it's not looking good lol.

    Just making sure I understand this...choose two of the backs you listed...of the ones listed I would probably roll with Montgomery and Thompson. With Kelley banged up Thompson will get some work and he is a good play in PPR. Montgomery is a definite play, Abdullah isn't bad but a risky play because Detroit isn't a heavy running team. I think in the flex spot Coleman or Williams are good plays. Tough call on sitting Howard, of the backs listed I would probably roll with Thompson over Howard instead of Abdullah. Riddick is more of the pass catcher in Detroit and if the game turns into a shootout Riddick will be the one getting more work.

    Reports are that Kelley practiced today and should be good to go on Sunday. I don't know how much work he will get, but I don't like the 3 headed monster of Kelley, Thompson and Perinie. I'll have to keep an eye on it. If Kelley is out on Sunday, I do agree that Thompson is a better play. I like Abdullah cuz he gets 15-20 touches a game. He's bound to get in the endzone eventually.

    My league is 2 RB, 2 WR and one Flex so I can either play 3 RBs or 3 WRs. Half point PPR.

    I haven't had any questionable plays in fantasy this year, so far. No "should i start x, or y"... yet. It's not as much fun without those

    I noticed that my opponent this week is the ****ing commissioner who won't let any trades go through unless it weakens certain owners and this ***hole apparently dropped his kicker and didn't fill the roster spot so I dropped 3 of my bench players and picked up the top 3 available kickers to ride my bench, and actually found a better matchup in that selection to start so now I'm carrying 4 kicker just for this week and hope anyone else in my league sees this and does the same if they have any crappy players on their bench so this ****head has no kickers available to field this weekend.

    Good call on the four kickers, Vash.

    I sat Howard as well. Still going to win so not a big deal. He was a tough play this week. I though Ptts D was better and he has been banged up.

    My TE in my big money league is MartyB and he isn't cutting it. I thought he would have a lot more success with Rodgers. Top available on the WW is Charles Clay, Coby Fleener and Even Engram. Anyone have any thoughts on who I should pick up? I'm leaning towards Clay, but they are all pretty meh.

    Tough call. I'd probably go with Charles Clay. I have tendency to overreach in my draft on a TE but I can't stand the inconsistency from the position ha. He's the flavor of the week, but what do you think of Marcedes Lewis? Is he available?

    Not really a fan of Lewis. He didn't do anything for 2 weeks and just exploded for 3 TD's. Probably a player to monitor. I'm holding on to Marty for this week vs the Bears. Looking at the WW and stats - Marty has 11 catches, 111 yards, 0 TDs. Clay only has 13 catches, 115 yards, 2 TDs. I like Marty this week against the Bears.

    I wouldn't waste a waiver claim on Lewis...throughout his career he will have these games and everyone jumps to get him only to see themselves dropping him a few weeks later. Unless you have a roster spot you can spare and you have another TE on your roster and he clears waivers, I wouldn't waste a bench spot.

    I agree on Clay, I don't see Bennett being a good consistent play, where I think Clay's floor is much higher than Bennett's

    It's such a TD dependent position unless you have Gronk/Kelce and maybe a few other guys. I hate it. I hope Marty and Rodgers are able to get on the same page for my FF team sake. I'll save the Waiver claim this week and jump on Clay next week if Marty has another dismal performance.

    I'm a waiver priority hoarder (although most of the leagues I am in now switched to FABB), one year I worked my way up to the #1 waiver spot and sat on it for a good chunk of the season...so when LeVeon Bell went down, I was able to snag D. Williams and ride him to the championship. I always ask myself, is this person worth dropping to the bottom of the waiver priority before I make a claim.

    I like DeVante in your situation. He has a good match up this week.

    Winston vs NE this Thursday or Newton @DET on Sunday?

    Thursday games tend to suck, and I worry NE defense might finally have a good game.... both these guys had big weeks last week.
