    Default Week Two Lineup!

    Alright guys, let's keep this W-Train rolling. PPR league. Here are my options...

    QB: R. Wilson @CHI, A. Smith vs. IND
    RB (2): K. Hunt @PIT, D. Freeman vs. CAR, P. Barber vs. PHI, J. Wilkins @WSH, B. Powell vs. MIA
    WR (3): J. Jones vs. CAR, K. Allen @BUF, M. Thomas vs. CLE, J. Landry @NO, K. Golladay @SF
    TE: T. Burton vs. SEA, J. Cook @DEN
    Flex: -

    I have a hard time ever benching a Wilson type for a Smith type, but the matchup is solid for Smith, and he's ranked noticeably higher this week by ESPN (5 vs 11). Can't decide here.

    RB I'm obviously holding at Hunt and Freeman despite their struggles, assuming Freeman is good to go.

    WR is obviously the big three, and Landry is the flex, though Golladay is a fantastic 5th option so far.

    TE is the other question besides QB. Cook outscored Burton last week 27 to 2.5, but Burton still has the higher ranking (9 vs 12). I've been burned by Cook many times in the past...

    Thanks for the thoughts friends!

    Now Freeman isn't practicing, so I also need suggestions on RB2 just in case. Barber against stout Philly or hope Powell gets enough catches against Miami?

    My thoughts --

    QB: Smith (yep, not going near Wilson on the road facing that CHI pass rush angry after blowing the lead in GB, against that offensive line, and now with Wilson missing indisputably his top receiving option)

    RB: Hunt, Powell (Freeman over Powell if the former is practicing fully by Friday and appears in no way limited; otherwise, Powell -- PPR setting helps here, and Crowell isn't doing what he did against the Lions on a weekly basis)

    WR: Jones, Allen, Thomas (that is just so nasty -- no way you can deviate from these 3 outside of bye weeks or the other possibility I won't even specficially mention)

    Flex: Landry

    TE: Cook (OAK is going to be down in this game and will have to throw. Cooper is a mess, and now facing arguably the best slot corner in the league, so I think Cook is in for a bunch of work again -- a bit risky, but then again there's no real reason for me to trust Burton/Trubisky appreciably more yet)
    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/Stepan/Domi
    W: Ovechkin/Hall/E.Kane/Neal/Bjorkstrand/Yamamoto/Parise
    D: Klingberg/Faulk/Gardiner/Provorov/Theodore/Russell
    G: Fleury/Raanta

    Im sticking with Burton. Heard on a podcast that anytime Cook has a massive game, he follows it up with a massive dud.

    I also heard this on a podcast. And I heard on a couple podcasts to stick with Burton... so I am fully listening to them all this week.
