Set My Lineup Week 4 (Segment one)

1) Pat

League Settings: PPR, IDP

QB: Jared Goff, Jacoby Brissett

RB: Kareem Hunt, Alex Collins, Ameer Abdullah, James White, Derrick Henry

WR: Jordy Nelson, AJ Green, DeAndre Hopkins, Nelson Agholor, JuJu Smith-Schuster

TE: Jack Doyle, Tyler Kroft

K: Greg Zuerlein

D/ST: Cincinnati Bengals

IDP: Lavonte David

Vick’s Take: You have a very good team. Brissett plays against an easier defense this week so he is the one to go with. Be wary of Alex Collins, he is a good player but the Ravens have been known to abandon the run. Let’s see what Jordy Nelson is worth this week without Aaron Rodgers. I see you finally dropped Ryan Shazier, smart move.

2) Z

League Settings: PPR

QB: Derek Carr, Jacoby Brissett

RB: Todd Gurley, Marshawn Lynch, Duke Johnson Jr., Damien Williams

WR: Michael Crabtree, Tyreek Hill, Ted Ginn Jr., Robby Anderson

TE: Jimmy Graham

K: Ka’imi Fairbairn, Stephen Gostkowski

D/ST: Buffalo Bills

Vick’s Take: Let’s hope the Raiders start cooking, they have had no identity so far this year. Your RBs are very good and you have a solid team all around. Perhaps a backup TE could be in your sights after you drop Fairbairn. Pick up Marlon Mack or Kenyan Drake they are gems on the waiver. 

3) Chris

League Settings: Unspecified

QB: Marcus Mariota, Deshaun Watson

RB: Le’Veon Bell, Jerick McKinnon, Joe Mixon, Jamaal Charles, Matt Breida, Damien Williams

WR: Keenan Allen, Stefon Diggs, DeVante Parker, Tyler Lockett, Corey Davis, Robert Woods

TE: Delanie Walker

K: Stephen Hauschka

D/ST: New Orleans Saints

Vick’s Take: Bye weeks are hurting you and the Deshaun Watson injury does not help at all. I actually like Williams more than Breida. Keep an eye on Delanie Walker, he was hobbled pretty bad his last game. If you end up needing a TE look at Austin Hooper or Vernon Davis. 

4) Austin

League Settings: Standard

QB: Tom Brady, Deshaun Watson

RB: Carlos Hyde, LeSean McCoy, Jonathan Stewart, Orleans Darkwa, Kenyan Drake

WR: Amari Cooper, Alshon Jeffery, Corey Davis, DeVante Parker

TE: Vernon Davis, Charles Clay

K: Jake Elliott

D/ST: Baltimore Ravens, Seattle Seahawks

Vick’s Take: You have terrible luck this week at the QB position. Tom Brady has a bye and Deshaun Watson tore his ACL. After the Watson injury you need to stream a QB and I would look at Jacoby Brissett or Eli Manning. Kenyan Drake has some upside and will be worth a play once he gets established in the offense. The Seahawks defense will make the Redskins one dimensional.

5) Mason

League Settings: Standard

QB: Matthew Stafford, Derek Carr

RB: Aaron Jones, Devonta Freeman, Alex Collins

WR: TY Hilton, Doug Baldwin, Russell Shepard, Sterling Shepard

TE: Evan Engram, Jared Cook

K: Matt Prater

D/ST: Buffalo Bills

Vick’s Take: Liking the thought of starting all your RBs this week. Engram is going to get a lot of targets and TY Hilton is hungry to prove his worth. Derek Carr will have a field day throwing touchdowns versus the Dolphins. 

6) Cesar

League Settings: Standard

QB: Deshaun Watson

RB: Leonard Fournette, Lamar Miller, Alfred Morris, Jay Ajayi, Latavius Murray

WR: Larry Fitzgerald, Michael Thomas, Alshon Jeffery

TE: Greg Olsen, Rob Gronkowski

K: Justin Tucker

D/ST: Baltimore Ravens

Vick’s Take: Love the trade you pulled off, but it is a shame you just lost Watson for the season. Odds are you are looking for a QB so keep an eye on Eli Manning, Jacoby Brissett, Jared Goff, or whoever starts for the Vikings. At TE this week I like Vernon Davis and Austin Hooper on the waiver wire.
