  1. what is your take on the timeshare that will now be happening with aaron Jones and Jamaal Williams? I see that Jones is #1 on the depth chart now, so how much work will Williams get this week? Is Jones worth picking up off the waiver and dropping Williams?

    1. Based on Williams body of work the last few weeks I expect him to remain the feature back. I’d much rather have Jamaal than Jones at this point as I’m not reading too much into the depth chart unless I see a change on the field

  2. In a PPR league which 2 RBs should I go with? Devonta Freeman, Kareem Hunt (Rolls Eyes), Samaje Perine, Peyton Barber?

    Also in a PPR 1 pick Hyde, Mckinnon, Theo Riddick or Peyton Barber?

  3. Peyton Barber, Mike Davis, Jamison Crowder, Derrick Henry, or Marquise Goodwin for the FLEX spot in a standard league? Personally leaning Barber (especially if Martin out) with Goodwin 2nd in an potential blowup spot vs HOU, but what’s your take?
