NFL Week 7: "Ask the Docs" Replies
Friday, October 17, 2014
Week 7 should be another great week for Fantasy Football. Byes, suspensions, injuries, and underperforming stars have turned this season on its head. Don't you just love Fantasy Football? Tons of great questions came in, so let's jump right into the mailbag.
Need some WR advice...I have DT for my WR1, but WR2 is a mess. K. Allen, Welker, R. White, A. Holmes. I think Allen might turn it around, but I have my doubts about Welker and White. How do you feel about those three for the rest of the season? I'm thinking of trading Welker or White for Mike Floyd. Royal and the other Floyd, James Jones, LaFell, John Brown and Fitzgerald are all available as free agents. Your help would be greatly appreciated.

Welker is a real concern because of his concussion history. White just has not been himself. Perhaps his age has caught up to him with too many injuries. Allen could still emerge as a fantasy option. The Chargers have a very productive team that can ignite Allen's fantasy value if Allen can stay healthy. Allen's has a far better chance of having some fantasy value than White or Welker. If you can get some decent fantasy value for Welker or White, that is a good move. However, Michael Floyd isn't that much better than the guys you have on waivers. Fitzgerald is a player you should target. He can still have some nice value this year. Right now you can even dream of him getting traded to another team. James Jones is definitely interesting. He is on a bad team, but he is getting good targets.
8 team 1/2PPR league. We start 2 RB's, 2 WR's, 1 TE, and 2 RB/WR's
I've got Demarco and Jamaal as my RB1's. Cobb and Marshall as my WR1's.
J Thomas is my TE. I need 2 WR/RB's from the following:
B Tate, L Miller, J Bell, R Bush as my RB's
E Sanders, R Randle as my WR's
Rodgers is my QB and I've been picking up DST's weekly (BUF this week)
I'm 6-0 thus far, but I really want to continue my undefeated streak. Who gives me the best chance in the RB/WR slots? I'm likely to go with Tate, but wasn't sure between Sanders or Miller for the other. Thanks!!
- Andy @ Facebook
Tate should be a good start this week as your 1st flex. It is a close call between Sanders and Miller. Because San Francisco is a tougher defense, Miller gets the edge in this case.
Guys pick 2 of 3---A Williams, J Starks or P Thomas--THANKS!!!
- Vince @ Facebook
Pierre Thomas and Andre Williams this week. Starks won't get enough carries.
Hi Docs. In a PPR league, I have two spots to fill this week: RB and R/W/T. My options are: Ben Tate, Justin Forsett, Alfred Morris, Mike Wallace, and Michael Crabtree. I am leaning toward Tate and Wallace. Any suggestions? Thanks!
- Philip @ Facebook
Ben Tate and Justin Forsett in a PPR. Morris would be the call in a non-PPR league.
Need to start 2 RB this week out of Jamal Charles, Lamar Miller, and Branden Oliver. Standard league.
- Brent @ Facebook
Charles and Oliver. Oliver has been on a hot streak. Miller should have a good game this week as well, but Oliver gets the call in Week 7.
I can't decide who to start this week Fred Jackson against Min, or Lamar Miller against Chicago.
- Not Bobby Brown @ Twitter
Lamar Miller all the way here. He has been reliable with Moreno out.
Flex question in non-PPR, J. Cameron or R. Hillman? Gut says Cameron but experts say Hillman. Thanks for the advice!
- Andrew @ Twitter
With Jordan Cameron back and healthy, Cameron is the choice over Hillman. However, Hillman should have a strong game.
Who should I start? James Jones or Mohamed Sanu!
- Ted @ Twitter
Sanu in a close call at this point in the week.
"Who would you start out of E. Lacy and B. Tate? I can't believe it's debatable but it is.."
- T Mel @ Twitter
Lacy, but it is another close call. Tate could lose goal line carries to the other backs in Cleveland.
Need flex. James jones, joq bell, Isaiah Crowell or Asiata? Thanks!
- Scott Taylor
Joque Bell is the choice. The workload Bell gets this week should keep his value up.
That's a wrap this week. Great interacting with everyone and good luck to everyone's teams this week. If you haven't yet, be sure to check out our FootballDocs' Social Media pages and send us your fantasy football question:
