Moving on to T.Y. Hilton's availability. He likely can't go, so should I run...

Nelson Agholor @ NYG (tonight)
Chris Godwin @ ATL

Pretty solidly leaning the latter, especially given the extra time it gives me to wait on him. However, I'm also waiting on Brandin Cooks. Should I play it safe with Agholor, or just roll out Josh Reynolds if Cooks can't go? (Between byes and injuries I don't have a lot of good options, especially since Cooks plays the late afternoon game.) 0.5 PPR, 0.5 rec FD.
It looks like Cooks and Kupp are good to go

Another league, standard scoring, underperforming TE division with Evan Engram out:

Trey Burton @ MIA
David Njoku v LAC

Also, do you ever play JuJu @ CIN over Hopkins v BUF (and Tre'Davious White) or Keenan Allen @ CLE?

Last but not least, 0.5 PPR, 0.5 rec FD, 1.0 rush FD. Injuries may make this decision for me, but how do you rank these guys:

Alex Collins @ TEN
Lamar Miller v BUF (I also have Blue if Miller can't go)
Isaiah Crowell v IND
Royce Freeman v LAR

Might even be crowell>freeman>miller>collins, im sitting collins this week

Need two or three. Other options for that third spot (FLEX) are George Kittle @ GB, Cameron Brate @ ATL (O.J. Howard is out), Chris Godwin @ ATL, Larry Fitzgerald @ MIN.
Id play Brate and Kittle, Winston just loves TE too much

With hilton out there are free targets to be picked up and hines could have some extra. Id toss a coin and let fate decide whos gonna be

I can't play them both; It's two RBs and a flex I'm looking for there. I could play them both if I bench Lockett but I like his matchup this week. Thanks for the suggestions on the other guys.

If you didn't play Jeffery I don't think it matters too much. Probably slight lean to DJax between the bye and Atlanta's defense, although Houston is at home and Tre'Davious White will probably shadow Hopkins.

Jeffrey was who I was leaning towards so I ended up not changing him

No PPR, start Boyd vs Stealers or Coutee vs Bills?

Edit - Watkins @ Pats also an option I guess

Choose a crappy RB:

Drake vs CHI
Jones II @ ATL
Davis @ OAK

or drop Mike Davis and pick up Ito Smith vs TB with Freeman out?

I'd go Davis > Ito from those two, wouldn't touch either Drake or Jones with a barge pole

Agreed. Raiders rush D is hot trash - giving up over 5 yards a carry. Expect Seattle to have a lead and Davis should get at least 10-15 touches.

Smith is more of a wild card. In the games with Freeman out, he got 10/5/10 touches. He's not used much in the passing game, so if it's a shootout, he might not get many snaps. Also TB looks decent against rush, but terrible against pass (including pass catching RBs) so I'd expect Atlanta to pass a lot. Think Smith is more of a bet on him getting a goal-line TD.

I think I like Robby Anderson over Ekeler, largely for matchup reasons. (The Browns defense is very good, especially in the front seven.)

My question: Gronk is questionable and plays Sunday night; I'm kind of screwed on having anyone to play if I wait until then and he ends up not playing. If it's still unclear at noon, should I start a different TE and move Gronk to my flex?

Options for earlier starts at TE:

Ricky Seals-Jones @ MIN
Erik Swoope @ NYJ (Doyle is out, Ebron is playing but was questionable all week)
Jeff Heuerman v LAR

If I did this, I would be benching Chris Godwin @ ATL, and starting Marquise Goodwin @ GB on Monday night if Gronk couldn't go.

Am I just overthinking this in a situation where Gronk is pretty likely to play regardless?

Oh, one more brief one. Standard scoring:

Keenan Allen @ CLE
JuJu Smith-Schuster @ CIN

(if you want to get wild, I could bench David Johnson @ MIN and play both.)

Would just roll w Gronk. Everyone else is probably ~0EV anyway.

I'd sit DJ; ARI sucks. Ben sucks at away games too but I trust him more.

If you have somebody you can drop you can pick up Dwayne Allen in case Gronk sits. He probably won't be much worse than any of the guys listed.

Re: 2018 NFL FFB Start/Sit Thread

Need an rb from this mess. 0.5 ppr

Cook v. ARZ
Royce Freeman v Rams
Mack @ Jets
Ronald Jones @ Atl

Was solid Cook but apparently he's on a snap count of 20-25 plays still. They stuck to that number last time he was limited, so I'm worried about a lack of upside. Mack and Jones both interesting flyers, and I'm an underdog this week, but might still be too much of a gamble. Jones especially, against that falcon defense looks really enticing.

Re: 2018 NFL FFB Start/Sit Thread

I need one WR and one FLEX in standard, opponent has Dalton as QB and I also start Mixon:

Boyd vs. PIT
Fuller vs. BUF
AP vs. CAR
Collins @TEN

I lean Boyd and AP, but I really don't like playing a WR from the same team as my opponent's QB especially when he isn't an elite option. What's the consensus on this?

Pretty gross I’m in a similar spot with trying to pick one of Royce Latavius jones.I hate the fact that Royce has such a low ceiling n this game and could get game scripted out. Ron jones is apparently still behind barber according to dirk koetter and we have zero evidence he is any good but if I was looking for upside out of them I would play jones and hope for the best but it is gross indeed. Honestly I would probably just play cook I just think the other options suck and he will do more with 8-10 touches in that game vs a horrible run defense than the other three and you never know the pitch count could be some coach gamesmanship

I'm still rolling with Cook. Arizona rush D is so bad that I expect even on a snap count he'll still get 10-15 carries and produce solid value.

Probably Cohen for the second spot as Miami rush D is pretty bad. Mccoy should get more touches, but Texans rush D is decent and I just think Mccoy is terrible.
