Thats a tough one, I think it can be narrowed down to Jones and Stewart. I would go with Jones because of higher upside, if Cam wasnt the goal line back I would go with JStew.

Help on mine

In a PPR league I would like Avant if he weren't playing WAS. The last two weeks he has 15 receptions and a TD. Jones doesn't get many receptions because of GB's spread it around offense and who knows if he's going to score or not. You can forget about Gaffney until he can show something other than ordinary. Stewart is meh, not good recption stats most days, no goal line work cuz of Newton, Williams playing better. You can forget about Dwyer.

If you want upside Avant is your man, otherwise Jones.

I would chase last week's box score with James Jones considering the lukewarm nature of all the other options. Even if he isn't a safe bet to score 5 points, those other guys just don't measure up to his potential.

Help me?

Avant has way more oportunities. If it were a td heavy league I might lean towards Jones but definitely Avant in a PPR!

I'd go Avant.

Philly doesn't really use the TE....Avant gets those kinds of looks. Maclin probably gets the most, and I think Avant will be right there with DJax as far as opportunities...but obviously w/o the RAC ability.

James Jones is attractive as well, but not quite as Rodgers spreads the ball between more players.

I think it's between Avant and Gaffney to me.

PHI does a great job against a team's primary receiving threat, as Nicks, Stevie J, among others have been shut down. However, as we saw last week, other receivers have a nice time. Now, Grossman is going to have to throw. If Moss is covered, Gaffney stands to benefit IMO. Avant has come on strong these past few weeks, and should get a fair amount of looks.

Faced with this decision, I go Avant here. PPR is the deciding factor, and Avant will shine this week.

Good Luck!!!

Help me out pls,
