    Seattle defense, plus Jamaal Williams probably stands a better chance of eating into carries than Charcandrick West. Only reason West should be in the game is to provide Hunt a breather, and Andy Reid has already commented about how outstanding Hunt's endurance is.

    I disagree as Williams hasnt proven a real threat to carries, just slightly better in pass pro. Commenting on endurance is different then snap distribution and gstting used to game speed. Im not saying Hunt wont be factor, just that it may not happen this week. Imo, Ty is the safer play and higher upside.

    I would go with either West or Rodgers over Blount. IMO Blount won't be anything close to what he was in NE, I would stay away from him. WR, I would go with the Thomas Brothers.

    RB - I definitely think Quizz Rodgers is your play at RB at least the first 2 weeks against us and then the bears. Potentially week 3 starter as well depends if you like him more vs the Vikings D or Blount vs the Giants D.

    WR - Thomas/Thomas, Pryor as Flex

    TE - Rudolph every day of the week imo.

    I have my draft tonight, obviously as a Dolphins fan I want Ajayi and Parker but I don't know if I can bring myself to draft both of them. I have the 12th pick so my RB options will be limited there, probably between Ajayi, Howard, and Gordon.

    Ajayi would be a pretty great pick at 12. He went around 14-16 in my 10-teamer. Howard I am lukewarm on, that team looks rough but their Offensive Line is strong. I am a fan of Melvin Gordon, not sure he'd be there at your pick though.

    I'm so glad I did my draft last weekend. Kareem Hunt fell to the 9th round, Devante Parker to the 9th as well. A lot of talent fell late. Keep an eye on Chris Hogan, I think he serves to benefit the most with Edelman being out. Thanks for the advice earlier in the thread by the way.

    But 3rd string Charcandrick and his 2.89 YPC over the final 10 games has somehow proven to be a threat? If West were a threat, then Hunt would've never been drafted to begin with.

    I believe endurance absolutely does matter. Ty has carried more than 10x just once in his college and pro career, and then Green Bay just drafted not 1 but 3 physical power backs. Meanwhile, Hunt has already established that he can handle a workload and has as much endurance and stamina as Andy Reid has ever seen. That level of confidence should keep a back on the field.

    Love your first team with Ajayi/McCaffrey/Thomas/Tate. 2nd team is a little dicey but its hard to lose when you got Lev Bell. In a standard I think Parker is going to be a beast. Rob Kelley is going to be sneaky this year i think, and everyone LOVES Kareem Hunt even though i dont see it.

    Yeah I feel the same way. During the 2nd team draft, my connection cut out twice and I autopicked T.Y. Hilton and, Robert Kelley. I like Hilton a lot ~if~ Luck was healthy. Kelley i'm really indifferent about, He will probably be dropped in the first few weeks for those popular Wavier Wire pickups.

    Eric Decker vs Tarik Cohen vs Kenny Golladay?

    I was debating dropping Eric Decker to pick up Tarik Cohen or Kenny Golladay.

    The rest of my team (10 team PPR league):

    QB - Aaron Rodgers
    RB1 - Christian McCaffrey
    RB2 - Ty Montgomery
    WR1 - Jordy Nelson (Yeah, I think the Packers are going to the Super Bowl this season)
    WR2 - Alshon Jeffrey
    TE - Jordan Reed
    Flex - DeVante Parker
    K - Wil Lutz
    DST - Houston Texans

    Bench:
    Sammy Watkins
    Corey Coleman
    Eric Decker
    Doug Martin
    Jacquizz Rodgers
    Phillip Rivers
    Tyler Eifert

    Should I just ride it out with Decker (lots of options on that running team in my PPR league) or claim Tarik Cohen or Kenny Golladay?

    I put a bid in for both Tarik Cohen and Kenny Golladay with Cohen being Priority #1 for me, dropping Decker either way.

    Sorry, Eric Decker, "Goodbye" (At least Old Man Trevor voted for me with his last breath:tongue2:):

    Yea for me its Cohen over Decker in a heartbeat. PPR or not. Decker looked old and out of sorts. Cohen is guaranteed to get tons of snaps and targets from that tepid Bears Offense. Im actually upset I won week one, not only did i lose David Johnson, but i lost out on getting a claim in on Cohen or Buck Allen. My RB depth chart is a wasteland.

    I am in the same exact boat, lost DJ and couldn't claim Cohen on waivers. Pissed because I knew he was going to do well and attempted to pick him up before week 1 but I have Winston and couldn't afford to drop anyone because I needed an extra QB for the week.

    Decker is coming off a hip surgery that threatened his career. He is a drop for now imo but you keep an eye on him later in the season when he may be further removed from said surgery and has built some chemistry with Mariotta maybe.

    Dilemma this weekend. I can either play my top 3 Ravens defense at home against the hapless Texans. Or play Patriots (low scoring FF defense) at home vs the even more hapless Dolphins.

    Big $$ on the line this weekend. Tough call for me. Who do I play in the flex(PPR)? Robbie Anderson, with Petty at QB and Lattimore at CB, Corey Coleman or Kerwyn Williams. I think I have changed it a dozen times. At RB, do I play Crowell or Duke Johnson?

    I’d go Duke as I’d guess Baltimore will dare Kizer to throw the ball 40x and try and beat them. I’d bet Johnson is a good bet to catch 6-7 balls so if it’s ppr I think he’s the play. I’d go Kerry’s Williams vs Washington. Peterson on IR, there’s no real competition for the job and he ran well last week.
