My pleasure, hope everyone wins their leagues that I'm not involved in. I'm honestly better from a marco-lens than the micro-perspective. More of a big picture guy than week-to-week.

My concern with Cam + KB connection is Cams ribs + panthers shakey Oline + lions Dline of Suh / Fairley / Ziggy
Start D-Jax. Valid concern, Lions' front four were getting after it against NYG. Granted Detroit is at Carolina, but the Panthers' offensive line is far from invincible post-Gross.
You know I'm down for brews. Thinking Sunday Funday in Hoboken this weekend.

He's 24, more a low-end RB2. Better Flex option. Payton utilizes RBBC, so Robinson, Thomas, and Cadet are eating off the same plate as Ingram. Although Ingram is probably the hardest runner, and should get the bulk of normal carries.

No such thing as dumb questions. Can't be afraid to ask in any platform.

Standard ESPN scoring
Torrey Smith vs. PIT
Lamar Miller @ BUF
Terrance Williams @ TEN
Terrance West vs. NO
Leaning towards West right now with Tate out. Thoughts?
New Orleans was 19th worst against the run last year. My concern is Crowell taking goal-line carries and TD. Torrey had 9/154/1 in two games against Pittsburgh last season. Miller could be productive as a change-of-pace guy, but it seems Moreno is the man until further notice. Tennessee was already good against the pass last year, and now they have Horty as DC.
I'd sit Miller and Williams. Torrey is the safe play, he's been productive in years past. West is the upside play, could be feast-or-famine if Cleveland goes down and chases a lead.

I prefer Cincy W2, even without Zim and they did get gashed for 420 yards W1. Which was tied with J-Ville for 27th worst in the league. Don't think Bills will bottle up Moreno, then Lazor mixes in play-action with Tanny deep to Wallace.
