Would only play Miller if his matchup points total is high and the Bucs have a high fireworks points total. And even then it would be based on how other options rate.

Going forward, under what scenarios is Scotty Miller a good play with Evans and Godwin back? Game flow, matchup, blowout, ….?

I’d have to go Jefferson over Chark.

Just came up with Chark looking active – flex in 1/2 PPR: Chark vs Jefferson?

Jonathan Taylor has only two red-rated rush D matchups ROS and has four green-rated matchups if today is included. Very much like his upside potential in that span accordingly.

Justin, that’s a very tough call so I’d probably have to go Henderson in that one.

Kevin, Cole is the safer play but Chark still has more upside given the limited practice on Friday.

Do you follow the NHL? Thoughts on the Buffalo Sabres signing Taylor Hall?

LAR D or NE D this weekend?

CMC might not be back until Week 8 but he’ll be maybe the best player in fantasy football if he returns healthy. No way to make that trade.

Andy, I agree on not liking the low matchup points and would go Jones and Cooks in that one.

Kevin

I had Cole penciled in for Jax today. With the news Chark will play mean I should play Ingram, Miller or Patrick at flex today. Chark could be limited and Cole has been playing at wr3/flex level.

I have Laviska, Cee Dee Lamb and Amari Cooper. Should I use both Cowboy receivers or split the difference?

In my standard league I was offered M.Thomas and Drake for Mccaffrey. My other RBs are Conner, J.Robinson, D.Harris. My Wrs are M.Evans and C.Kupp. Hard to trade mccaffrey. But should I do it?

KC, 12 team PPR; need advice on WR2 and Flex. Choosing between B. Cooks, R. Anderson and R. Jones. Not thrilled by the low matchup points in the CAR/CHi game..

Kevin, Vea is very good but the Bucs rush defense is about a lot more than one player. Still think they will be among the toughest rush defenses in the league.

Doesn’t the loss of Vita Vea mean Jones and company will have an easier day today in the run game?

Matt, Chark did get a limited practice in on Friday so I’d expect he would be a full go and could be started in that case.

Do u like J.Allen vs KC D tomorrow?

Mikey, like them both as options this week but would have to go Singletary.

Chark suddenly active. Think he will be a decoy or start able over someone like marquise brown? I’m afraid of the slay shadow and tds going to mandrews

Mikey, got Ben rated just a bit higher than Watson this week.

Mikey

October 18, 2020

For my FLEX: L.Shenault or D.Singletary?

Jeff, the Rams-49ers game does get 100 matchup points this week, so it is expected to be high scoring.

Mikey

Hey KC, who should I start today? Big Ben vs Clev or D.Watson vs Ten? Thanks

Lowell, they rate close enough on the start-sit charts that it’s basically a toss up. JuJu does rank slightly higher, so it’s easy to justify starting him.

KC Joyner

David, would have to go Jones in that one and hope for a shootout.

Jeff

Thanks on both, KC!

Quick follow up, are you considering that the Rams-49ers game is high scoring?
I expect there to be a lot of points in the Vikings-Falcons game

Lowell
Lowell

October 18, 2020

Parker or JuJu? .5 PPR. Worried Parker doesn’t see many targets in a blowout and last week left a bad taste in my mouth with JuJu

Doug

Hi KC – Chark or Gallup at WR3, 0.5PPR? Thanks!

Hi KC. Wondering who to start in the flex between Ronald Jones, Justin Jefferson, chase Edmonds?

KC Joyner
KC Joyner

October 18, 2020

Would go Woods out of that trio given how banged up the 49ers secondary is (I’m still not sure their matchup points total is as high as it should be).

KC Joyner

October 18, 2020

Jeff, would go with Edmonds in that case. Really like his breakaway ability and the Cardinals are sending work his way.

Need advice on my flex sport for a 1/2 PPR selecting between:
• Justin Jefferson
• Robert Woods
• Brandin Cooks

KC Joyner

Kevin, I’m not sold on Ward because Alshon could be back as early as next week and Goedert may be returning soon as well.

Jeff

October 18, 2020

Need a bye week fill-in for Kamara in a 1/2 PPR league, here are my options:
1. Chase Edmonds
2. Damien Harris
3. Jamaal Williams (would have to grab from FA and drop someone)

Kevin

Greg Ward on waivers for coming week. Is he worth picking up and playing over Miller, Cole, Patrick ROS as a WR 3?

KC Joyner

October 18, 2020

Kevin, I’d go NE in both cases.

Kevin, Fitz was one of the toughest calls of the week. He’s got four straight games with 21+ points, but in two of those games he scored a rush TD and last week he faced a 49ers secondary missing four CBs. About the only thing the Jets are doing a solid job at this year is pass defense and their offense all but precludes getting into a shootout. Brady has been more consistent, has both WRs, and is in a game that should turn into a shootout, hence his much higher score.

Brian, congrats on the great start! Would go Freeman and hope that he ends up getting platoon-caliber carries. Would also go Smith and hope that Houston’s defensive woes return.

Which D is likely to keep the scoring low today Pitt or NE? Which D is more likely to cause more turnovers today Pitt or NE?

Would you please clarify your Ryan Fitz rating. Last week you basically said he shouldn’t be in the lineup. This week you commented that his scoring was against high powered offenses. This week they Play the Jets who like San Fran are not high powered, at least San Fran wasn’t high powered last week and their D stunk like the Jets. I am torn between Brady and Fitz so why should I bench Fitz again??

Good morning KC. Thanks in large part to your wisdom, we’re the only 5-0 team thus far in our 0.5 PPR 12-team league, but know it will be tough sledding this week because we have Kamara (and L. Murray) on a bye. We’re also starting Fitzpatrick at QB after Dak’s injury, so not ideal too. We’re underdogs against our opponent this week, who are starting M. Ryan, K. Hunt, K. Drake, Ridley, D. Parker, C. Lamb and J. Mixon (Flex). Currently deciding between J.D. McKissic and Royce Freeman at RB2 behind DeAndre Swift. What do you think there? We are also planning to start Julio, Mike Evans, Robby Anderson at WR/TE, but need your guidance whether to start Jonnu Smith, Tim Patrick or Preston Williams at Flex. Would love your thoughts.
