  1. Let me expound on this... The Bill's recent success on offense has relied on staying in base 11 personnel and not letting the defense make substitutions. This works well for them because they have their 5 best skill players on the field and then a lot of beef to move defenders off the ball. Beyond Brown, Beasley, Singletary, Allen and Knox, Buffalo is light on skill players that put any fear in to a defense, So 2 WR, 1 RB and two TE's is where Buffalo will look to do most of their work on offense. Baltimore's biggest weakness happens to be in base personnel. They excel when they can put 5 DB's on the field as that's their strength. They've gotten used to being way ahead in games, forcing the other team to throw from 3 and 4 WR sets, where they can easily make life miserable for them. The Bill's however have one of the best defenses in the league, and have the advantage of playing against a running QB everyday in practice, so if anybody can keep LJ and that offense in check well enough to not have to go in to pass or die mode, it's the Bills, and that's what I, as a fan, am hoping for. If LJ comes out and scores 21 points in the 1st quarter or even half for that matter though, I think the script will work for them and it will be lights out for the bills.
  2. If the Bills have any hope, and I'm a bills homer, they need to run the ball and control the time of possession and keep LJ off the field, they'll also need some help from turnovers. If I didn't have a bye, I'd be starting Singletary, but not J Brown. The bills can win this, but it's more likely they get crushed.

    Consistency/Predictability is gone from FFB

    I'd say this is true or RB's in general. With most teams employing RBBC of some sort, it can be maddening sitting on someone like Tevin Coleman like I did, then when he comes back from injury has a monster game and you feel validated for the draft pick and holding him, only to see his production drop off a cliff the following week for no discernible reason. Aaron Jones has cost me more weeks than he's helped me win at this point with his wild inconsistency that again seems to follow no rhyme or reason. CMAC having his first "off" week since week 3 I think cost me the first seed and bumped me down to the second just this last week. I have J Brown, Gallup, Edelman and Diggs for WR's, Brown and Edeleman being my two most consistent, you'd think I'd play them every week, but every week I think, is this the week gallup or diggs go off? Can I sit aaron jones for John brown or even Devin singletary who are both way more consistent? No, because I'll shoot myself when jones finally goes off for another 40 point week. All of the above mentioned (except coleman) are high target, high snap count players, and I'd say about 1/4 of the time they actually follow the script you would predict based on matchups and weather. Some days, I think it's just because Diggs pissed off Cousins in the locker room or Jones was partying too much the night before, who knows? At the end of the day I have a bye this week and a REALLY good shot of winning my league, but I'm going to have to get lucky in the championship because the other guy has a really good team too. I'll have to hit on more decisions and hope he misses on a few. Welcome to fantasy football.
  4. I'm just dumbfounded as to how a game script can write out my boy Coleman so easily
  5. That being said, this week is a throw away for me, because my opponent has no QB, no kicker and no flex and no apparent intention to line any of them up.
  6. Nope, I own it. Just like I own every other decision I've made since the day I first played FF. I'm pretty sure that first decision was taking Andre Rison in the 2nd round of my 1993 league, but my old ass can't really remember back that far. I'm just sayin, there's some stooopid advice coming from this joint.
  7. I'm starting to think the best thing I can do is ask this clown show of a website for advice and do the opposite.
  8. i played Coleman, starting to look like a bad call...
  9. Wow you are high on Gallup, any particular reason?
  10. ahh crap, I forgot to list edelmann lol, so just put in the comments if edelmann is your first wr choice.
  11. The only reason I don't lock in Jones is because he's a little banged up and the chargers are so good against the pass which is where he's been eating lately.
  12. Gallup, Diggs or MacLaurin this week as a flex? And should I bench A Jones to start 2 of the 3 above? I have edelmann and mcaffery locked in. Leave a link, I'll answer.

    Flex choice

    I have to ask, is your league so deep that you can't improve on any of these guys via the WW?
  14. erikthebassist

    Who to Flex. WHIR.

    FTR I also own Coleman but I'm not even considering starting him right now. I'm mostly holding him as a late season flier in case one of my RB's goes down, but I'm always looking for ways to upgrade on him as my RB3 bench.

    To the OP, McLaurin is a monster if he's healthy so watch the player news. If he's really over his hammy issues, then this isn't really a question. He faces the 28th ranked passing defense in the league on a team with no real ground game. There's no one he's under threat to lose targets to either. I own him, and if I didn't have better options in Edelmann and Gallup, I'd be starting him over guys like Diggs and Dorsett this week.
