Week 2 of the 2 week playoff round 1.  I have a slim 7 point lead.


Standard scoring 

My opponent is stacked (I used to be until I lost Hunt and Connor)


Currently starting:


         me                              opponent

QB   Winston                       Rothlisberger

RB1  Chubb                         CMC

RB2  Gus Edwards              Michel

WR1  Hopkins                      D. Adams

WR2  Diggs                          Edelman

TE     J. Cook                       Z. Ertz

Flex:  Jaylen Samuels         J. Adams

K        Zuerlein                     Prater

Def:   SD                              WA


my bench:


P. Rivers - start him over Winston?

RB - none that are playing..... ughhh

WR - T. Boyd, D. Moore, A. Humphries

I could play one of these receivers over Jaylen Samuels.  Should I?  I have a bad feeling about this week, as my opponent seems to have an edge everywhere.  Losing Hunt and then conner really screwed me at the worst possible time.  Ah yes, that's fantasy football.  meanwhile our #1 seed has had no injuries at all.  Must be nice.

QB:  Rivers, Winston

RB: J. Samuels, J. Connor, Kerryon, N. Chubb, G. Edwards

WR: D. Hopkins, S. Diggs, DJ Moore, T. Boyd, J. Reynolds

TE:  T. Burton, J. Cook

Kick: Zuerlein

Def: TEN

Rivers and Boyd

I love when people say..."These fantasy football people aren't true fans... I don't know how they can root for a player instead of a team"

I say very easily!  I love fantasy football and would not be half as interested in half the NFL teams if it weren't for fantasy football.  I am probably more a fan of your home NFL team than you are.  Take away fantasy football and the NFL loses 30% of its fandom...   The Capn'

Oh by the way....Go Lions!!   and Patriots   and Broncos  ...ha!

Moore could see a few more receptions without Olsen in lineup & Humphries  been rock solid scoring in the last 3 games becoming TB's most reliable receiver, with the Buc's playing the Saints I like him over Diggs.....A bigger Problem could be Edwards, his ankle is dinged-up and if KC's explosive offense is up by a few TD's at halftime he will hardly be used by mid 3rd quarter & most 4th since Edwards is more of a plodder without receiving skills.....

Hmm, interesting takes.  I did make the switch to Rivers as the consensus rules there.


That flex spot is tricky.  I could also replace Edwards with Jaylen Samuels and roll with 3 WR instead of 3 RB.  I admit I've been thinking about trying to get Humphries in, and that would do it.  


I know I'll be sweating this one out all weekend long.  Diggs being still gimpy could be problematic  I may have to make that call on Sunday even though he plays monday.  

QB:  Rivers, Winston

RB: J. Samuels, J. Connor, Kerryon, N. Chubb, G. Edwards

WR: D. Hopkins, S. Diggs, DJ Moore, T. Boyd, J. Reynolds

TE:  T. Burton, J. Cook

Kick: Zuerlein

Def: TEN

Winston, in a shoot out @Home vs the Saints. I think LAC will be up early @Home vs. CIN, and will lean on the ground game in the second half, to grind the time.


T Boyd, he's proven he's capable and J Samuels has too many unknowns with S Ridley likely to see many early down carries.
