Murray definitely. SJax against ARI? Yes please.

I know Welker didn't do much last week, but you should definately start him. Nate also produced, so I would go with him next as the 2nd WR.

For your flex, I would go with Mathews (if he is healthy). He is still the starting RB and he also factors into the running game. If not, it is a toss up between Jacobs (who may score a TD but not much else) and Bowe (he has the ability but the QB situation is worrisome). Moss would be good but not this week in his first start after the injury.
Help me please. viewtopic.php?f=19&t=509353

Murray......Miami defends the run well but Murray is a fantasy stud, especially in PPR leagues. And you always start your studs.
Jackson.....Can be counted on to once again put up RB1 numbers in a divisional game at home.

Welker......Welker looks to bounce back this week against the Eagles after seeing only 2 targets from Brady last Monday night.
Washington...Washington had a career game last week. Expect another trip to the end zone.

Jacobs......Jacobs looks like he'll get at least one more start and there's going to be lots of points scored this Monday night.

PPR league I would go with Murray, SJax, Welker, Washington with Matthews as your flex. Matthews catches the ball often and will have more touches than your other options...

This exactly. I'm not sure what you mean by underachieved. This is a solid base of players, but you don't have a homerun hitter except Welker in the first half of the season.

You definitely have to go with Murray and Jackson for your RBs. This is a no brainer. They will both flirt with a 100 yards and get a TD.

Welker and Bowe for your WRs. Despite being shut down on Monday, Welker will bounce back and have a big game. He's a major part in the Pats' offense. Not super confident with Bowe and the backup QB in there, but they will be playing from behind and have to throw the ball a lot.

Matthews for Flex. Given your players I think he will have the most touches and upside to breakout and have a big game.

Thanks for the help with mine,

Murray, S Jax, and Welker for sure. I'd go Washington based on the matchup. Flex is tough. I might go Mathews and hope they throw to him more and he gets a TD. He's hurting a bit, though, so keep an eye on him.

Thanks for help with mine.
