    FLex - .5 PPR

    Blount vs Miami
    Marvin Jones vs Pittsburgh
    Boldin vs Rams
    Ladarius Green vs Baltimore (only if gates doesn't play)

    I have Blount in right now and I think I am going to roll with him if Dion lewis is out, but if lewis plays i have to go with Jones right? I can't see New England going that pass heavy vs Miami like they did with us?

    Gotta be Benjamin. I hate starting te in flex, even if they are solid. Benjamin this year seems to have a pretty high floor on a game to game basis.

    Ebron. That KC secondary is abysmal and Benjamin will be going up against the Honey Badger and Patrick Peterson. Also, McCown is starting and has a bum shoulder

    He makes a valid point too, and I thought of that. I just think Benjamin has a higher floor, and ceiling as well.

    Plus I'm ahead of Dawinner in fantasy.

    BY 60 POINTS! I'm right there haha. I just don't think this is a good spot for Benjamin. McCown is banged up and TB will see a lot of Petrson and Honey Badger. Didn't the new OC for the Lions say he wants to get the ball downfield more to Ebron and Megatron? Chiefs secondary is horrible.

    I hope so. Calvin hasn't been having a Calvin year. Ebron has been going under the radar this year.

    Ha! I traded for Calvin in my other league two weeks ago. I gave Dion Lewis straight up for him. Perfect buy low opportunity on Calvin.. weeks 3 4 and 5 he went up against Sherman, Talib, and Peterson. Everyone got so low on him. I loved it

    LeVeon and Ivory.

    Full team is..
    Ben/Russell Wilson
    MegaTron/Kendall Wright/JamesJones/MarvinJones

    Dion Lewis for Megatron
    Cobb, Cam, Ertz, C. West for Gronk + Kendall Wright
    Gore for Ivory + Michael Floyd
    Boldin + Hoyer for Russell Wilson

    In that case you made a great trade, because you're still weak at wr imo.

    Screw both of you guys. This is not helpful.

    Can you just pm each other and agree?

    I was pretty solid at WR before I traded for Gronk with Megatron and Cobb at 1-2 and a James Jones at 3, but I couldn't handl ehaving Cobb AND Jones

    I would do it. You're guaranteed to get 1 guy doing well.

    Cam. That Indy D is trash and he could do it more than 1 way -- ground and through the air.

    NON PPR Standard

    James Jones vs DEN
    Travis Benjamin vs ARI

    Fell i might not see any points from jones cause Den D is crazy good and Benjamin might have a chance if manziel starts to blow off the top.
    I also have Melvin Gordon; Dexter McCluster; Andre Johnson for this flex spot

    James Jones. I'm actually pretty confident in James Jones this week. Cobb is going to see a whole lot of Talib, which would leave Chris Harris JR on Jones. Jones is 3 inches taller and is clearly Rodgers favorite redzone target. I'm actually starting Jones in two of my DFS leagues.
