    I have stashed a bunch of RB’s, but wonder whether to go with studs or work matchups. Which 3 would you choose, assuming you would bench A. Gates in a flex for one. Otherwise, which 2 would you choose? PPR league. Thanks.

    M. Bush, M. Lynch, F. Jones, C. Benson

    Normally Bush and Lynch would be no-brainers, but they don’t have good matchups.

  2. FFPrep says:

    I am sorry I am late on the call. Felix Jones would have been a decent start but if he isn’t an option then Lynch and Benson

  3. Tom Jolitz says:

    I don’t see Reggie Bush listed among the RBs; however, he appears to be practicing this week. Where would you rank him if he plays on Sunday.

    • FFPrep says:

      Tom – Reggie was originally Questionable which dropped him off the positional rankings. I’d rank him #9 ahead of McFadden

  4. Mathew Martinez says:

    At the tight end position, who would you prefer for Week 16: Pitta or Cameron? Also, at the running back position, who would you prefer: Montee Ball or Lamar Miller? And lastly out of these three recievers, which 2 out of the 3 would you start: Torrey Smith, Marques Colston, and Michael Crabtree? Hope to hear from you soon!

  5. Jas says:

    No team D?

    • FFPrep says:

      Hi Jas – The D/ST is split out to a separate page. I think I’ll include it in the positional Rankings going forward, but for the time being:

  6. bluedevil42 says:

    Andre Williams or Brandon oliver

  7. ok_keeks says:

    Curious why is Odell Beckham has so many proj points this week — I know Cruz is out, but wow! Beckham is still available in my league but I’d need to drop Brandin Cooks, Mohamed Sanu, or Desean Jackson to get him… What to do??

    • FFPrep says:

      Ind has given up a lot of points to opposing WRs. Beckham also had two touchdowns in his last outing. I would consider Beckham for Jackson, but that one is up to you.
