This is close, but I am leaning towards Washington in this scenario. If it were me I would start Washington...

I like Washington in this situation. The NE defense is a leaky sieve, he will have more opportunities/higher upside than Jennings.

Washington.

i am in the opposite here, but although they are somewhat even i always believe you need to go with the RB.

You know the RB(jennings here), will get 15+ carries and any goalines he will get too. A wr is risky as there is no guarantee they will get touches like a rb inside the 20.

Just a safer pick IMO going with jennings. I have him penciled in for 80 rush yards and a coin flip for a td this week.

I would go with Jennings. Blaine Gabbert is an unknown.

Jennings will be motivated for his one chance to shine, but remember MJD isn't injured and they'll play him on 3rd downs. And I"m not sure that Jennings will get the goalline carries with MJD healthy.

Washington will be the number 1 WR this week and I expect a shootout with NE this week so lots of targets

Although I usually go with RB for a flex, with this being PPR I think Washington is the choice

I like washington here.....for some reason I see MJD stealing a touchdown or two and third down catches even if Jennings gets the main load. Washington is the go-to guy and Locker will be a good one throwing alot against NE

Would definitely play Washington. Number 1 receiving option on a team that will likely be behind against last years worst pass d. I like.
