Full PPR / 8-4 / 3rd Place / Must win to remain in playoffs
QB – D. Prescott and J. Hurts
RB – N. Chubb, L. Fournette, D. Harris, B. Scott, D. Johnson (Chubb handcuff)
WR – C. Kupp, C. Lamb, A. Hopkins, D. Mooney, C. Kirk
TE – D. Know and T. Higbee
K – E. McPherson
DEF – Eagles & Saints (who have perfectly coordinated favorable weekly opponents)
I want to employ the recommended playoff strategy and stash 1-2 high potential RB handcuffs. I already have D’Ernest Johnson as my Chubb handcuff. Mattison, Darrel Williams, Jamaal Williams, Michel and Booker are not available.
The following RB are available:
Ronald Jones II – (Would serve as my Fournette handcuff)
Benny Snell (if Steelers decrease N. Harris playing time)
Jeff Wilson (Not much upside)
Tevin Coleman (Not much upside)
Kenyan Drake (Not much upside)
Which 1-2 RB should I pickup? Is 1 more stashed RB enough? I lean toward Jones and/or Nwangnu, then Herbert.
The tough question is who to drop. I lean toward dropping Scott. But then who else would I drop? Christian Kirk (I don’t want to drop him but he’s my 5th WR)? Under-performing Tyler Higbee (which would leave me with just one TE)? I don’t want to drop either Defense.
