Bye Week: Houston, Detroit
Scoring Reminder: These rankings are based on 1/2 PPR, 4 Pt Passing TD Scoring.
Sit / Start Help: If you have any specific lineup questions, please let me know. While rankings are helpful, many factors are at play that can make a lower-ranked player more appealing to start. For example, you may be an underdog, and starting a “boom-or-bust” player is more recommendable versus a sure 7 or 8 points.
DeMarco Murray is annoyingly active today, which now makes my Bold Prediction of a Derrick Henry takeover a lot less likely. Given this is also versus a top-six run defense, Henry’s appeal has taken a major blow, and he drops to RB28. He still has performed much better in Titans wins (13+ touches in each one), so the game flow still favors henry. But he’s not ideal today.
Leonard Fournette is NOT expected to play, which is enormous news for those who stashed Chris Ivory like we’ve told you since Week 1. Ivory will be an RB1 play today with 20+ touches a real possibility versus a soft and pathetic Indianapolis defense. Lock him into lineups, as he rises all the way to my Week 7 RB11 now.
Jordan Matthews is expected to return today, and the timing is perfect with a date with the whorish Bucs secondary (surrendering the most FPs to wideouts). Without Charles Clay, Matthews has the path to enormous numbers. For perspective I’m starting him over…
Keenan Allen. He’s expected to play after suffering a shoulder ailment in practice. Against the stingy Broncos corners and at less than 100%, I’d consider other streamers before Allen today.
Martavis Bryant is expected to have an “increased role” today. Yay. Sarcasm aside, the Bengals corners are decimated and Big Ben is notoriously better at home, so this could be a better Bryant game than usual. He’s been bumped above the streamer crap.
Kelvin Benjamin will be active, and should be locked into the vast majority of lineups. This boosts Cam Newton‘s stock, and lessens the appeal of Devin Funchess.
Andre Ellington is not expected to play, which boosts Adrian Peterson‘s already soaring stock even further. Lock the old man into lineups, especially against such a soft Rams defense (surrendering 2nd most FPs to backs)
In the news that no one cares about, Mike Wallace and Jeremy Maclin are both active. Expect them to do nothing.
Rankings are only half the battle to perfecting a lineup. You need personalized advice based on your own unique situation, and there’s tons of ways to get connected:
