    Thoughts about Vereen ROS?

  2. LestersLegends
    November 12th, 2013 at 5:55 pm #

    I think he’s a nice add, especially in PPR leagues.

  3. Blair Walsh Project

    Gonna try and snag him off ww. I’m 7th though. Also put in for Andre, though he wont make it to me. Dropping fractured-legged Mike James for either if possible.

    You think he’ll get like 12-14 touches a game? Spiller-esque?

    Lamar Miller, Deangelo or SJax as a RB2?

  5. LestersLegends
    November 12th, 2013 at 7:27 pm #

    Probably. He is very effective. They’ll use him when they want to be uptempo.

    would you trade vernon davis for chris johnson?

  8. LestersLegends
    November 12th, 2013 at 8:45 pm #

    Not a bad offer. Depends on what you have at RB and TE, but if it makes sense to your roster, it’s worth it.

    now the offer is ridley for vernon straight up i have jordan reed. just dont know if i want to give up vernon for ridley because the patriots backfield is awfully crowded. would do it?

  10. LestersLegends

    Depends on your rb situation

  11. Scotty

    I have Gore and Murray, but Murray is on bye and I wanted to sell high on Vernon in case his concussion drags out. I also have Jordan Reed which makes Vernon expendable.

  12. LestersLegends

    I’d see if you can get CJ. If not, then adding RB depth is essential. Getting Ridley isn’t a bad option.

  13. Scotty
    November 13th, 2013 at 8:54 am #

    I pulled the trigger on Vernon for Ridley. Who would you recommend adding as a handcuff to Ridley? Vereen, Bolden and Blount are all available….Thanks

    who has more upside the rest of the season in ppr…stacy or bell?

  15. LestersLegends
    November 13th, 2013 at 3:26 pm #

    I like Bell a little more.

    I recently dropped Mike james but have the opportunity to pick up chris ivory or ben tate from waivers. Who do you think is the best option for the rest of the season?

    Hey Ry… somehow i was able to snag Andre Brown off ww. Can’t believe no one put in for him. I was thinking about grabbing Vereen off FA and dropping TReach. Whaddya think?

  18. Blair Walsh Project
    November 14th, 2013 at 5:14 am #

    lol too late i dropped him, and it felt good too.

    With Dez on a bye, i have BMarsh as WR1. Between Riley Cooper and Keenan Allen, who should i start at WR2? Based on matchup i’m thinking Cooper. Keenan is at MIA and they have allowed the fourth-fewest fantasy points to opposing WR’s. Pretty stingy. Also, at flex (PPR) who do you like between Spiller (tough matchup!) and whomever is leftover between Cooper/Allen? I was thinking of sitting Spiller @ NYJ.

    gazz – i’d go with tate. powell could still factor in.
    BWP – i like allen, but if you want to play the hot hand and matchup, coop is a good pick too. Pick them both and let spiller sit

    I have Ridley and Vereen, is there any need to stash Blounte or Bolden and if so which one?

  21. JC
    November 14th, 2013 at 11:58 am #

    PPR gamble #1 question: Alfred Morris and Forte are always starting but Danny Woodhead generally outscores one of the two. Are you still starting Morris and Forte?

    PPR league 2 question: I have Jamal Charles at RB1 and then I have a RB2 and flex to fill. Sproles, Woodhead, and Julius Thomas. Please pick 2.

    For the PPR league 2 at WR: I have Jordy, Steve Smith, and Riley Cooper. I am leaving Kendall Wright and Michael Floyd on the bench, do you agree?

    Thanks!

    BK- No
    JC – Forte for sure. Sitting Morris for Woodhead in PPR isn’t a bad play, but it is an indictment on PPR scoring. I’d sit sproles. Agree with your WR picks.

  23. JC
    November 14th, 2013 at 9:53 pm #

    I have a hunch you’d roll with Morris even though its PPR. It is a real tough decision which I’m sure I’ll continue to debate until the last minute.

    In league 2 I find it also tough to debate Sproles & Woodhead, Sproles does have the tougher matchup tho.

  24. LestersLegends
    November 14th, 2013 at 10:01 pm #

    Woodhead has been more consistent than sproles

  25. Tega
    November 15th, 2013 at 10:30 am #

    Better Flex option…Vereen, Stewart or Powell…Thanks.

  26. LestersLegends
    November 15th, 2013 at 2:02 pm #

    Vereen. Safest choice is jstew

    Need a RB2 and flex play….
    Ridley, Woodhead, Ryan Matthews, and Ellington. Which 2 should I go with?

  28. Jeff
    November 17th, 2013 at 12:55 am #

    Also have Torrey Smith as a flex option as well. Thoughts?

  29. LestersLegends
    November 17th, 2013 at 9:16 am #

    PPR I go with Woody and Smith. Standard I go with Ridley and Ellington

  30. Jeff
    November 17th, 2013 at 11:20 am #

    It’s non PPR. I am going with Ellington. You think Ridley will do ok against Carolina DEF? Better than one of the SD RB’s against Miami?

  31. LestersLegends
    November 17th, 2013 at 11:27 am #

    I think he’s more likely to score a TD than those guys. It’s close. I like all of your backs. Great depth. Problem is you have tough calls every week.
