Yeah it's definitely worth grabbing Mitchell. Doesn't seem like any other running backs are worth it out there at the moment. Maybe Sanders gets injured and you'll want Kenneth Gainwell later, but I'd go get the guy who just got a huge workload in a Shannahan offense.

Mitchell is very good and it's a perfect situation. Can't imagine you get anyone better there.

Very happy I picked him up for cheap last week in my dynasty league.

What do we think is gonna happen with Damien Harris? He's got such a juicy matchup but man...that last second fumble.

Gainwell is owned in my league. An Eagles fan drafted him so I doubt he'll ever make it back to waiver at this point.

Use it Jug. Sometimes you're better off not having the #1 waiting for the perfect time to use it. Churning the back end of your roster with the 7-12 waiver every week is helpful because the other people ahead of you are afraid to use their good waiver and someone can fall in your lap that way.

NE has too may RBs. Hate owning any of them since you'll never know what you get week to week.

I've got Sermon but also Deebo. Is Mitchell someone I should try and use my waiver on?

I'd drop Kroft but he was on the team for moral support. Only other option would be Zach Moss but nah

I'd use it on Mitchell. You never know for sure if he's going to hold on to that role, but if he does the upside in that run offense is worth it.

Hunt is probably the safer bet, depending on how much you trust Shanahan.

Elijah Mitchell @ Phi or Melvin Gordon @ Jax in .5 PPR?

Gordon had a nice game last weekend, but it was all on one big run. We can even throw Christian Kirk vs. Min in this discussion since this is for a flex play.

I'd ride Mitchell until Shanny changes his mind.

Mitchell, like you said Gordon had nothing until the TD run

Kirk is also TD dependent. I imagine only Hopkins will feast every week. The rest is split between Kirk, Edmonds, Green, Moore, & Conner

I need 2 RB, 2 WR, and a flex from the below (non FTS leagues I swear) in a PPR...

J. Chase @ Chicago
D. Johnson vs LV
S. Shepard @ Washington
C. Davis vs NE
J. Jones @ Seattle

A. Gibson vs NYG
J. Robinson vs Denver
Ty'Son Williams vs KC
E. Mitchell @ Philly

Leaning towards Chase/Diontae/Gibson/Robinson with Shepard at FLEX but I dunno.

I like your choices. Honestly, RB is the toughest for me. Gibson might get some catches, but the Giants run defense isn't too bad. I'd def say Robinson but torn on the other 3

I’d go with Mitchell over Shep in the flex. Can’t trust Daniel Jones and Jason Garrett on a short week

Pick 2, 0.5 PPR

C Claypool vs LV
C Davis vs NE

T Boyd @ CHI
T Marshall vs NO
T Patrick @ JAC(would drop Marshall for Patrick)
D Mooney vs CHI(would drop Marshall for Mooney)

I would but I’m also not nearly as high on Marshall as others. I think Darnold isn’t good enough to support 3 fantasy relevant receivers and CMC steals all the short area targets that Marshall would get while Robby Anderson is the preferred deep threat, and DJ Moore is the clear #1 option on most play calls. Plus, historically speaking, most rookie WRs are flex plays at best.

With Jeudy out and a strong end of the season as well as week 1 for Patrick I think he’s a consistent flex play with WR2 upside

This is probably a year you can safely start all 3 top receiver picks for a while I'd imagine, to counter the rookie narrative thing. I agree with you on Marshall, though.
