considering benching Dalton in a superflex league and going 1QB this week cause denver…

Yeah I very nearly picked Dalton as my QB sit, even with the bad matchup I think he’s probably still a start as a SuperFlex though, unless you are stacked at RB/WR.

would him, decker, duke johnson, rawls, hurns, or tyler boyd, i guess. probably not jimmy graham or zach miller

Honestly I’d probably go Dalton, none of those guys really seems like a lock to put up more points than a weak performance from Dalton. I don’t hate the logic but wit those Flex options I think he’s probably still the best play

If you had another streamable QB I’d say go for it, which is one reason I so strongly argue for owning 3 (or 4!) QBs on the pod

Well, our Stafford and Sanders picks blew up in our faces. Some other good picks in there so far though!

Updated with early results, there are a few really good calls here (Marvin Jones, Demarco Murray, Ryan Mathews), but pretty much everything else was terrible.

Some of those sit picks seemed like total gimmes when we picked them. This game is hard.

Our sit picks basically combine to a slam dunk superflex lineup for the week. Although if we hit on our Ryan and Coleman picks tonight, our starts will be pretty respectable as well. Still looking to beat our best week in Week 1.
