CBS has me at 0% to win. A Russell to Metcalf TD would do it though

4th consecutive week that an opponent has scored >100 against me, putting me solidly as the league leader in points against. Not that my team scored enough to win anyway, just one of those brutal matches.

Had picked up Guice in hopes of having a little more RB depth, but with 2 of my WRs on bye and Sanders questionable, will need to drop him for someone. Which of the following would you pick up?

Cobb @Det
Demartius @Was
Renfrow vs. Cinc
JWashington @Cle
MHardman @LAC

I have Hooper in both of my fantasy leagues. Waiver wire is OK for replacements in one league, slim pickings in the other. Fingers crossed that he's back soon.

Should I start Niners D vs. Arizona or pick up Raiders vs. Cincy?

Niners D was picked apart by Arizona last time they met, and doesn't help that they went deep into overtime on a Monday night.

+1 on this question, considering the same

Counterpoint: I benched SF this week and ran KC, because all the talking heads had them ranked way higher. SF outscored KC by 19 points.

Other question: Matt Ryan @ CAR or Carr vs. CIN?

Suffered a similar fate playing the Colts (ranked #2). From a points allowed perspective Indy was the right choice, it's just that the Niners scored a defensive TD, something that only happens when I don't put them in my lineup. On the flip side, D's from my fantasy opponents have had TDs for 4 straight weeks now

It's a tossup, I'm leaning Carr after Baltimore's big passing performance last weekend.

Well that's settled then, you leave them on the bench and I start them this week

Probably best not to start them then. I don't think the choice is clear enough for me to use a roster spot on a second defense, especially with 3 of my guys getting injured this weekend.

Pascal became available, should I drop Renfrow to get him? If Brissett doesn't come back from injury he's not of much use. Will depend in part on Hilton. If TY comes back then Pascal won't be the #1 receiver, but that might be a good thing anyway since he wouldn't be shadowed by Bouye.
