    CJ Anderson, maybe Royce Freeman at RB

    Big Dick Nick at QB? I have Brees, who shouldn't play much. I picked up Carson Wentz a couple months ago for this, but dropped him for Cam before he shut down. I grabbed Josh Allen, who was a nice matchup with the Dolphins. Nick Foles is vs Washington.

    Maybe need to look at a WR with ODB possibly out again and now Pettis done for the year. I think Hill should be fine, as KC needs this game to secure HFA. Michael Gallup? One of the GB rookies? ESB or MVS? Anthony Miller?

    TE, I have Trey Burton, who Chase Daniel didn't like as much as we had hoped. Chris Herndon and CJ Usomah are out there. I guess I have to start one of these chumps, right?

    I think I saw that Gurley says he's playing next week so that could really mess you up at RB (well, unless you have Gurley)

    This is always the toughest week to gauge because players will come out of nowhere as announcements come that starters are being rested.

    Yes, Anderson is the obvious one, but Gurley is on record saying he wants to play. Hill is another to watch in ATL if Colemans sits and Washington in NO if their backs get rested.

    Herndon and Uzomah are both better options than Burton by a mile. Uzomah has the best matchup, Herndon is probably the better player. Both are solid TE1s this week however.

    As for WR, I am not a fan of any that you mentioned. MVS and Gallup have been bad. St. brown may be out. Anthony Miller has 4 catches for 25 yards over the last 3 games.

    There has to be a better option out there.

    Jordy Nelson?
    D. Hamilton?

    Has to be somebody out there.

    id snag nelson, martin etc some of them raiders. Id still snag anderson as they have no reason to risk gurley. He said this week he was playing too, and i never bought it.

    CAP they said they may sit mcaffrey
    Brian hill, looked good, and coleman had got hurt
    crowder
    deandre carter
    chris herndon
    curtis samuel
    tedd ginn
    sproles if looking for a dart

    So, who is droppable from my team....


    QB - Brees, Allen (going for Foles)
    RB - Bell, Conner (keeper league), Samuels (insurance), Dam. Williams, Mark Ingram
    WR - Beckham, Hill, Pettis (gone), Baldwin, Corey Davis
    TE - Burton (gone for a TE)

    So, Bell, Conner, Beckham and Hill are out of the question. Anyone else is on the table. Do I drop Brees for Foles? Is Ingram expendable? Corey Davis?

    What you see is what you get. I plan on adding CJ Anderson and Foles right now. Maybe a TE.

    We ultimately keep 2 offensive players and 1 IDP. On Super Bowl Sunday (the NFL's), we cut down to a 5 man roster, which we can trade off of for players or picks. I fully plan on keeping Bell, Conner, Hill and Beckham, along with an IDP (probably Kuechly or Wagner).

    so
    Foles
    rb
    rb
    wr baldwin
    wr
    flex
    te

    honestly the only plays i like, the steelers rb's are only good if conner sits, if so u play conner, and theres a chance thats happening

    dam williams- obv earned a role, but what happens if ware is back, can u gamble?
    Ingram actually probably will get work, they would most likely sit kamara IMHO

    WR wise no one else looks good, can you get R anderson? crowder? Curtis samual(got alot of work lats week and cmac may sit)

    Gotta be a better TE than burton

    but alot of question marks IMHO

    If WR is that thin on the wire (no Anderson, Foster or Humphries?) then you might just be better off starting Corey Davis. Kinda hard to trust any Titan but he is (in theory) their #1 pass catcher. Could you post a list of who is available at WR on the wire?

    im an idiot, hill is playing his in, if OBJ plays hes in
    but for me that still leaves possibly 1 wr if OBJ doesnt play, a flex, a te , and 2 question marks at rb
    can u also post what rb's are availble. hell post what QB, RB, TE , WR are available.

    QB

    Eli Manning vs DAL
    Case Keenam vs LAC
    Sam Darnold @ NE
    Tyler Heinicke @ NO
    Blaine Gabbard vs IND

    Foles has to be the answer here.

    RB

    Royce Freeman vs LAC
    Doug Martin @ KC
    Alfred Blue/Donta Foreman vs JAX
    Darren Sproles @ WAS
    Jeff Wilson, Jr @ LAR


    WR

    Nelson Agholor, @ WAS
    Taylor Gabriel vs MIN
    Zay Jones vs MIA
    Chester Rodgers @TEN
    MVS vs DET
    Tre'Quan Smith vs CAR
    Michael Gallup @ NYG
    Chris Hogan vs NYJ

    TE

    I have Trey Burton @ MIN

    Chris Herndon @ NE
    Mark Andrews vs CLE
    CJ Uzomah @ PIT
    Rickey Seals-Jones @ SEA
    Ed Dickson/Nick Vanette vs ARI

    I would roll with:

    Darnold at QB
    Herndon at TE if you want the stack, Uzomah if you want to diversify

    Hate the WR choices. All of them. Hope you don't have to use any and I still bet there are better options.

    I would grab Jeff Wilson too, in case Gurley suits up.

    Bridgewater is also out there. He should play the whole game from what I am hearing. I think I still like Foles, but just throwing it out there.
