PPR league (1 point per reception). 


I need to start 2 WR's and 2 RB's, and 1 FLEX (WR or RB).  Bolded are the guys I am sure I am starting...who else to make my starting 5?  I guess the big question is, do I start Kelvin Benjamin (vs SF) or Melvin Gordon (vs JAX) as my FLEX?


My receivers:


Odell Beckham (vs New Orleans)

Mike Evans (at Arizona)

Kelvin Benjamin (vs San Francisco)

Pierre Garcon (vs Dallas)

Tavon Austin (vs Seattle)

Kenny Stills (at New England)


My running backs:

Mark Ingram (at NY Giants)

Carlos Hyde (at San Franciso)

Melvin Gordon (vs Jacksonville)

Chris Ivory (at San Diego)

Christine Michael (at LA Rams)

Mike Gillislee (vs NY Jets)

I would say Benjamin is the lock this week, Gordon had two touchdowns last week but saw less snaps than Danny Woodhead. DW is the better receiving threat so that hurts Gordon in a PPR. Benjamin and Carolina should roll after a disappointing opening loss.

Benjamin looked very good last week. I'm with Common. SF thinks they are back after beating up the Rams. I don't think so . Carolina rolls them.

I have one now maybe you guys can advise. 1ppr. I can start 3wrs or 3rbs totaling 4. 



TY Hilton and AJ Green are locked in at WR. I also have CJ Anderson a lock at RB. So for the fourth here are my choices



Keenan Allen( IR) Damn it!

Sterling Shepard

Tajae Sharpe

Eric Decker



Duke Johnson

J. Forsett

I. Crowell

T. Hightower

Yes, you are all probably right.  I guess I am wondering how Allen's injury will effect Gordon's opportunities.  He looked really good last week too.

Kelvin Benjamin for sure.  He didn't look 100% yet, but is still capable of putting up great numbers at that level.  Healthy, he could be dominant,
