How's about we have a running fantasy advice thread for the season? We could do weekly too if that's better for the server. 

 

Here's my situation:

 

Mike Evans is out this week, so who should I start? 

 

Choices:

Sammy Watkins

Corey Davis

 

or Pick up:

Paul Richardson

Taylor Gabriel

Philip Dorsett

Zay Jones

Jordan Matthews

Marquise Goodwin

Torrey Smith

Mohammad Sanu

Nelson Agholor

Terrance Williams

 

Also should I flex any of those guys over Martellus Bennett?

I'd go with Watkins given the matchup. I have Evans also, have to play Benjamin in his place.

I grabbed Davis pretty late because he was there and has high upside. I agree Sammy is a better play right now. But what about the flex y'all? I like Marty B in Green Bay but Seattle is a tough matchup.

Of those guys, Bennett plays will the best QB. His role on that team is yet to be defined though.

Are there any RBs worth taking a look at on waivers for a flex?

I would start Bennett. No reason to drop anyone before week 1 unless you really hate someone you drafted.

Watkins, easy choice.  By far the most upside against a juicy matchup and he has a chip on his shoulder.

Well this week was a close one. If I started Stafford over Carr I'd have won. Oh well.

 

Serious help needed here though. Since my running backs are my weak spot right now, I'm thinking of putting $15 of my $100 waiver budget on Tarik Cohen. Good idea, bad idea? Is that enough? Is that too much? I have never played in a league with waiver budgets so I don't know who uses how much, when, etc.

The Bears have zero offensive receiving weapons. I was lucky enough to get the waiver on Cohen but I won't be starting him this week.

Pros: he has shown to be one of the few trusted receiving talents

Cons: game sample is a single showing. Possibly a fluke?

I'd hold off, especially since you won your first matchup. If it isn't a dire situaion, it might be nice to have the money down the line or to make the move if deemed necessarily down the line.
