    Default Week One Lineup

    And we're back! Wanted to get some thoughts on my week one options, though I think most is pretty straightforward. PPR.

    QB: R. Wilson @ DEN, A. Smith @ ARI - Don't love the matchup at Denver, but Wilson is the weekly no brainer right now.

    RB (start 2): K. Hunt @ LAC, D. Freeman @ PHI, P. Barber @NO, J. Wilkins vs. CIN, B. Powell @DET - Again, barring something strange, feel like Hunt and Freeman will be weekly starters. Keep the others in mind for flex.

    WR (start 3): J. Jones @PHI, K. Allen vs. KC, M. Thomas vs. TB, J. Landry vs. PIT, C. Ridley @PHI, K. Golladay vs. NYJ - Jones, Allen and Thomas, obviously. Landry leading the flex vote.

    TE: D. Walker @MIA, T. Burton @GB - First big decision. Leaning Walker, but we don't know much about the injury. Tempted to switch in Burton.

    Flex - Landry? Barber is interesting and Wilkins could be if he's named starter for Mack.
    All trade questions are for a 30 team keeper league with 27 man rosters. Scoring for skaters are accumulated from points (ES, PP, SH) and plus/minus rating.

    I agree with your choices on everything but TE...though I admit that Barber is not too far behind Landry for that flex position.

    I love Walker, and he has a higher floor than Burton. But signs seem to point to Burton having huge star potential and a high ceiling. Young QBs do tend to throw to TEs a lot, and even with Mack signing in Chicago I don't think they'll contain Rodgers. It should be a shootout, and the Bears O should be good. If it were me I'd take my chances with Burton.

    Good luck!

    I'd go with each of the choices you've indicated you were leaning towards.

    P.s. That's some nasty group of WRs you have there, particularly in a PPR!
    14 Team H2H Dynasty League (14 keepers, no farm)
    Weekly Starts (3C, 5W, 5D, 1Util, 2G)
    G, A, PPP, SOG, BS, +/-, GAA, W+OTL, SV%

    C: Backstrom/Giroux/Rakell(IR)/Drouin/Mittelstadt/Haula(IR)
    W: Ovechkin/Hall/E.Kane/Tuch/Wilson/Hornqvist/Bjorkstrand/Johnsson/Leivo(IR)
    D: Klingberg/Provorov/Theodore/Gardiner/Edler/Cole
    G: Fleury/Raanta(IR)/Grubauer/Demko
