Set My Lineup Week 4 (Segment one)

1) Pat

League Settings: PPR, IDP

QB: Andy Dalton

RB: Kareem Hunt, Bilal Powell, Ameer Abdullah, James White, Adrian Peterson

WR: Jordy Nelson, AJ Green, DeAndre Hopkins, Nelson Agholor, Kenny Stills, Josh Doctson

TE: Hunter Henry

K: Nick Rose

D/ST: Cincinnati Bengals

IDP: Ryan Shazier

Vick’s Take: Kenny Stills and Josh Doctson are very good depth players who will be WR2 by the end of the season. If you want to improve any other positions, consider trading a WR. Jordy Nelson is dispensable since there is no one competent to throw him the football. Hunter Henry continues to be consistent. Team looks good for this week. 

2) Z

League Settings: PPR

QB: Derek Carr

RB: Todd Gurley, Duke Johnson Jr., Theo Riddick

WR: Michael Crabtree, Tyreek Hill, Ted Ginn Jr., Danny Amendola, Rishard Matthews, JuJu Smith-Schuster, Cooper Kupp

TE: Jimmy Graham

K: Stephen Gostkowski

D/ST: Cincinnati Bengals

Vick’s Take: Nice pickup on JuJu, with Martavis Bryant being benched this weekend there could be a real increase in value there. You can start Gurley and Duke Johnson almost every week, but another RB behind Theo Riddick would be nice. Look to trade Kupp, Amendola, or even JuJu for depth at RB/TE. Happy to see you drop two QBs after finding a stud. 

3) Chris

League Settings: Unspecified

QB: Marcus Mariota, Deshaun Watson

RB: Le’Veon Bell, Jerick McKinnon, Joe Mixon, Jamaal Charles, JD McKissic, Derrick Henry

WR: Keenan Allen, Stefon Diggs, DeVante Parker, Kenny Golladay, Corey Davis

TE: Jordan Reed, Delanie Walker

K: Stephen Hauschka

D/ST: New Orleans Saints

Vick’s Take: Your RB group is very strong, maybe look to trade one of those players to get further security in WR depth. Jordan Reed FINALLY had a decent game, he should continue to be the most reliable pass catcher in Washington. All your WR seem to be injury prone. Nonetheless, this team is very strong.

4) Austin

League Settings: Standard

QB: Tom Brady, Tyrod Taylor

RB: Carlos Hyde, Ameer Abdullah, Joe Mixon, Dion Lewis

WR: Chris Hogan, Alshon Jeffery, AJ Green, Amari Cooper, Keenan Allen

TE: Kyle Rudolph

K: Jake Elliott

D/ST: Baltimore Ravens, Seattle Seahawks

Vick’s Take: The toughest call this week is between starting Abdullah and Mixon. Amari Cooper finally woke up, so your WR situation is enviable. Start Ravens defense tonight against a Dolphins team playing with their third string QB.

5) Jeremy

League Settings: .5 PPR, Bonuses

QB: Drew Brees, Russell Wilson

RB: Mark Ingram, Doug Martin, Alvin Kamara, Derrick Henry, Marlon Mack

WR: Keenan Allen, DeSean Jackson, Larry Fitzgerald, Jordy Nelson

TE: Austin Seferian-Jenkins, Cameron Brate

K: Jake Elliott

D/ST: Jacksonville Jaguars

Vick’s Take: Injuries to the QBs of Larry Fitzgerald and Jordy Nelson hurt this team so bad, and it is a shame because you were stacked. Make a choice on who you would rather trade and get rid of. Jordy and Fitz still have great name value and a susceptible fantasy player may be suckered into trading for one of them. Your RBs, TEs, and QBs, are awesome.
