Re: Week 5 Official Questions Thread

Hey Gents,
I’m suffering from an embarrassment of riches that are mostly performing mediocre, so I thought: who better to set me straight : ). Need 2 RB’s 2 WR’s and a flex some are obvious but it seems easier to just give you the whole list:
RB’s
Melvin Gordon - oak (so obviously he’s RB1)
Carlos Hyde - bal
delvin cook - PHL
Devonte Freeman - PIT
Matt Brieda - AZ
WR’s
Calvin ridley -pit
Edelman - ind
Baldwin- lar
Amari Cooper - lac
josh Gordon - ind
.5 PPR & currently 2-2 in 8th out of 12
Love the show for 10 years now. Looking to you to help me have a day!

Re: Week 5 Official Questions Thread

Have another question for you - more long-term
I know you guys are generally anti-trade, but I feel like it may be a good idea to sell some talent for a #1 WR, either a 1 for 1 or 2 for 1 to get there. I also like having great RB depth in case someone doesn’t work out (cook) and to keep them off other teams. Here’s my current team, and if I wanted to target a Hopkins, what’s a fair offer to make someone?
QB - Luck
RB - Le’Veon Bell, Gordon, Cook, Freeman, Brieda
WR - Ridley, Cooper, Edelman, Gordon, Baldwin
TE - Reed
Note: I know it seems impossible to have drafted this team in a 12-team league and you’re right. I traded Carson & Williams (GB) for Le’Veon and Josh Gordon the day Gordon got cut.  Also, someone dropped Freeman after week 1 (for reasons beyond my understanding) and I dropped 40% of my FAAB to get him.

Hey Fellas,
Sending you a serious SOS from Hozer Land eh. I'm sucking big in defending my title (1-3) and need CPR for my team. So... Ekler or Fumble Collins in my Flex? Then, I need two of the following three... R. Freeman, Crowell or Brieda?

In another league, in a flex... Rudolf, Cutee or Taywan Taylor? Also... should I risk playing Mixon and Devonta Freeman now that their supposably back?

Thanks as always, and P.S.... Canadian bevi's are really gassy. The wifie will hate the ride home!

Re: Week 5 Official Questions Thread

Hi Guys!

This question comes from NewHampshire...belated congratulations on your Birds beating my Pats in the big game. Respect.

I'm new to the forum but have been listening to your mediocre podcast for years. I figured what better time than now to reach out for some possibly useful advice.

10 team .5 ppr - I'm making the final tweaks to my week 5 roster and have to leave one of the following players on the bench.

Carlos Hyde, who gets the volume but is playing a tough run defense.
Calvin Ridley, who many expect his bubble to burst but is playing a weak pass d.
or
Mark Ingram, with the uncertainty of how he'll be used in his first week back.

Who would you leave on your bench?

Thank you gents and have a day!
