Help me win the NFL playoff challenge AND beat Doug Orth

04 February 2017 - 05:58 PM

I am in 1165th place (out of maybe 500k entries) but I have most of my lineup at 4x since they started in week 1 of the competition, think maybe I have a shot) I got Atl / NE right as finalists and worked backward from there picking players. 


I did not choose a Falcon or Patriot for my RB2 and TE slots because I thought Bell could total more than any RB in 3 rounds, so was willing to accept a 1x RB in this final round. If Bell had played much in the AFC divisional round it would have worked better but I'm probably still OK.


I was going with the same thought at TE and thinking about a different guy in every round but after I swung and missed on Fiedrowicz in round 1 I switched to Martellus meaning he is only 3x this round for me. If he doesn't score much again it won't matter.


So who do I choose as my RB2 (Freeman is already set at 4x) .............. Dion Lewis or Tevin Coleman. Blount probably doesn't make sense as he is the highest owned and probably lots have him at 4X meaning I'd be falling behind by picking him.


And, do I switch out of Martellus at 3x, into Hopper or Toilolo 1x just hoping for a lightning strike knowing its doubtful many entrants have one of those two at 4x.



So 1 RB and TE...............please and thank you



As a secondary consideration I would love to outscore Doug Orth since my dynasty league, named after this site, and containing many board participants tried very hard to recruit him for an opening last year but he declined. He declined gracefully and with class, but I still wouldn't mind sticking it to the man.   :)


(It looks like Doug is sitting on 599 points total so far and I'm at 615, only lineup differences is he will have Blount at 4x against whoever I go with at 1x band he has Bennett at 4x while I have him at 3x............if only Bell hadn't gotten hurt early in the game I'd be well ahead)

I'm sure its nothing...................but there does appear to be a hint of smoke, figuratively speaking of course



Johnny Manziel is at UFC 196 to see Holly Holm – Miesha Tate and Conor McGregor – Nate Diaz. He appears to be hanging out with Josh Gordon. Do the Cleveland Browns not have practice tomorrow?
