    Hey – I’m in the finals of a PPR league and have been staying with A. Gates at TE for a long time and he has been down for a while now. I have Charles Clay on my bench but M. Bennett and Delanie Walker are also available. Do you think I should bench Gates for one of these 3? I’m leaning towards D. Walker for the matchup, thanks.

    I am not feeling Gates. I like Bennett best, but if you want to go with Walker, that’s not a bad play. He’s played well of late.

    Made the playoffs! Many thanks to you for your great site and helpful advice.

    Who would you start at flex between Witten and Decker? I have Orange Julius at TE.

    Thanks again, much appreciated!
