I'd probably start both. The 49ers might run with Hasty or check down to McKinnon on every play.

Niners may have to throw a ton to the RBs too. That's all they have on offense.

So I am in a bit of a pickle. My RBs are still a disaster after losing Chubb/Barkley. I know I have to start one of McKinnion/Hasty as one of my two RBs. Partially because I really have no other option and partially because the Packers run defense is trash.

However past that I run into issues picking my flex:

McKinnion/Hasty (GB gives up most points to RBs)
Noah Fant (ATL gives up most points to TEs)
Jamison Crowder (almost impossible to pick as he may not play and has a MON game)
Jordan Wilkins (risky and terrible match up)

I know generally speaking starting two RBs on the same team is probably not the wisest. However, the match up is great and worst case I should hopefully still get decent points between the two. Do I just hedge my bets and start them both?


I almost always take the floor and Fant has the best of that group to me. I think 5/50 is guaranteed. If Crowder was healthy I would go with him but you can't do that with him playing Monday night.

Pick 5 (at least 2 RB and 2 WR):

Chase Edmonds
Todd Gurley
Jerrick McKinnon
Robby Anderson
Mike Evans
Marvin Jones
Mike Williams

Edmonds
Gurley
Anderson
Jones, although if Stafford doesn't play I probably go with McKinnon and Williams as your last two.
Williams, tough call between him and McKinnon but it seems like Mike and Herbert have something going right now.

There is no way to trust Mike Evans the rest of the season. I actually just traded him. With Godwin healthy he's useless, throw in Gronk and Antonio Brown for however long until he implodes and there's just not enough there to trust him week to week.

Yeah, I've been trying to dump Evans for awhile but I'm also not going to just give him away. I dumped Godwin earlier this season. As good as Brady is for the Bucs in general, he's been awful for the fantasy value of Bucs' receivers compared to Winston.

McKinnon is such a tough call right now. I think he could easily go for 25 tonight and I think he could just as easily get 3 total touches and watch Hasty carry the ball 25 times.

Did anyone pick up AB?

I did the second he signed because I had a roster spot to burn. I'll see how he does this week and maybe next week if I don't need the spot before I decide to start or dump. I'm very much leaning toward him not being worth much fantasy wise but I wasn't going to let someone else find out he would be Brady's favorite target and WR1.

i need two RB's from this group:
Antonio Gibson
Justin Jackson
DeeJay Dallas
JaMycal Hasty

My gut is telling me to stick with Gibson and Jackson as they are the known commodities and don't need to worry about other player's health to define their role. However, my gut is also telling me that Dallas and Hasty have ski high ceilings compared to the other two. Dallas could be the only healthy back in a great offense and Hasty could be the lead back against a D that can't stop the run. I'm also a little concerned that the 49'ers total lack of a QB is going to negate whatever advantage they have on the ground.

The Niners could dig up Carl Monroe's rotting corpse and he'd go for 150. Go with Hasty.


I can easily see the Packers getting up big early and then McKinnon takes most of the snaps as the pass catcher. Plus I avoid playing Thursday game guys unless they are no-brainer starts. But I don't see anyway this game is actually played on a Thursday.


This is why I never listen to my gut or all the experts that start salivating over some random guy one week because he has "plus" matchup. The 49'ers trash offense and the Packers running up the score is going to make Hasty a big fat turd in my lineup.

It's just so hard to predict 49er running backs. If it makes you feel better I started McKinnon .

Take away the garbage time TD and he didn't do much either. With all the injuries the 49'ers had I totally saw a Packers blowout coming but still told myself "The experts know what they're talking about. Hasty should give me a solid 10 points minimum here." Nope, plays only like 10 snaps. I've taken way too many risks this year, probably more than I ever have in a season before, and have been burned by almost every single one.

Yeah, I swore off all 49ers and Patriots RBs this year, although I half jokingly said start Hasty this week.

What a disappointment Melvin Gordon has been lately. Time to sit him down for a while.

Ugh tell me about it. I haven't wanted to start him in a few weeks but I have nothing else and 12 team league so there's less than scraps on the waiver wire

With a 4.32 lead over the first place team in my league with Kamara still to go, Payton will hopefully sit him for the night. Plus I still have AB for some garbage yards.

I was holding a slim lead over my opponent with him having Godwin and Succop to go. Figure I'm good, right? They're not going to send an already injured Godwin back out there down 40 points with 8 minutes left, and they're not going to kick field goals.

Wrong. And wrong. Thanks, Bruce Arians. Dick.

Hasty and Justin Jackson were my RB's this week. Had I replaced them with anyone on my bench I still wouldn't have won but it still ticks me off.

I lost because of the Ebron TD. Was up 9ish and the Ebron td was 10ish. Then I get a stat correction to take the lead and Jordan Howard gets 9 yards late. I lose by .26. Sweet.

I got 2 point corrections this week to come from down 1.26 to win. I got a 1 point correction with Mike Williams and a .5 correction with Mahomes. First time that has ever mattered for me.
