    Will Fuller @ IND - in

    James Conner vs. BAL
    Tevin Coleman vs. CIN
    Kerryon Johnson @ DAL
    TY Hilton vs. HOU
    Sony Michel vs. MIA (pretend you've never heard of him until now)

    I’m playing Fuller and Michel in a couple leagues. Don’t know how that BAL-PIT game is gonna go, but I would still play James connor.

    The patriots seem intent on forcing the ball into Michel’s hands rather than james Whites.

    I would bench Hilton and coleman.

    I need a flex out of:
    Doug Baldwin @ Oakland
    Devin Funchess @ Washington
    Mohamed Sanu vs TB
    Tarik Cohen @ Miami

    PPR league.

    Cohen or Sanu. I'd probably gamble on Cohen.

    Baldwin has become risky and Olsen is coming back this week for CAR, so that will likely marginalize Funchess. Personally, I'd probably go Sanu since TB-ATL figures to be a shoot-out and Sanu has actually started to outsnap Julio Jones.

    Edit: Having said that, Sanu will finish with 3 points, while everyone else you listed will explode for 20+ points. Just the way it works.

    exactly. I benched Aaron Rodgers last week in expectation of Matt Ryan running through Steelers D like poo through a goose. Instead, Ryan blew and A-Aron went nuts.

    Who would you start? Emmanuel Sanders, Deandre Hopkins, or Taylor Gabriel.

    I know the experts would say Hopkins, but based on Watson’s chest injuries, I’m leaning towards Sanders.

    I don't trust the Chiefs defense and Keenum loves Sanders. If there's any way to play both Hopkins and Sanders I would do it if it's a ppr.

    If you can't play both, I feel like Sanders ceiling is higher this week than Hopkins, but he's a little riskier. The Texans are leaning on Miller like you say. So if you have some players you think are sure points, you can afford to gamble benching Hopkins in favor of Sanders.

    These are the guys I’ve already got starting

    Robert Woods
    James Conner
    Adrian Petersen
    Marlon Mack


    I think my only hope with Hopkins is for him to score a TD like he did last week.

    Fwiw, Matthew Berry likes Sanders against the chiefs a lot this week. I'm starting him at flex over Mike Evans vs Ravens.

    Berry also likes Gabriel this week.

    Well, I ööööing chose poorly. Hopkins would’ve gotten me 16 points.

    Sweet time for me to upgrade to Jack Doyle from Eric Ebron.

    Same in a different league....the irony is that the person I’m playing is streaming Ebron b/c their normal TE is on BYE.

    Who to start this week? Cam vs Seahawks or Trubisky vs Lions? The Lions are giving it up to everyone and Mitch scored 38 points 2 weeks ago against the Lions. All the experts say Cam.

    I don’t see how Cam Newton’s floor/ceiling are better than Trubisky’s just based on this season alone. Lions sometimes play pretty good on Thanksgiving though.

    Trubisky may not play. He is a little banged up. Cam is ultra consistent in fantasy due to his legs and that the whole offense goes through him. The Lions are awful, so if Trub plays then he would be a good start.

    Trubisky is a no go, so that makes that decision easy. Just got to decide on my last flex.
    AP, E Sanders, or MVS (GB). Not too high on AP with Colt at qb.

    No öööö. I saw the story about an hour too late. Hunt done for a long while.
