    WR Room is killing me.

    Non PPR - We only start 2 WRs and we don't have a flex. So the majority of the year I have been using Godwin, Higgins or Kirk in the 2 spots. I drafted Bateman & Pickens also but had to cut them due to a short bench. Week 10 I will be without Higgins and of course would need to start Godwin & Kirk Week 11 I'll be without Godwin & Kirk and only have Higgins left DJ Moore was dropped today and he is the top scoring FA out there. Another option would be to go back and grab Pickens. He was dropped also this morning while on his bye. DJ had been doing good the past couple of weeks, but sucked today and a few other times. Pickens doesn't have to worry about Claypool anymore. Neither have decent QB play. We are first come first serve so we don't have to wait on waivers and players churn in the blink of an eye. I will be dropping a Defense so i will still hold on to the others. I am also in another possible dilemma, Aaron Jones left in a boot. We also only play 2 RBs. I will have CMC & Kenneth Walker III to put in this week. But Week 11 I won't have Walker. If Jones isn't ready by Week 11, I won't have another RB. Allgeier, B. Robinson, Hubbard and a few other low performing RBs are all that's available. Also in Week 11, I won't have Geno Smith. So I'll have to go with R. Wilson who I used until I took the chance on Geno. (Or hope someone drops a better option to swap him out as well). I don't have to do anything just yet but there is a chance these options wont be there if i wait. I was thinking. Grab a WR and wait and see on the RB, since i know i will need a WR in week 11, but then if the RBs get took and Jones cant play, then i screwed there. But if he can play Im good We start 1 QB, 2 RB, 2 WR, TE, K, DEF and we only have 4 bench spots .My full roster looks like this QB Geno Smith, Russell Wilson RB CMC, Aaron Jones, Kenneth Walker III WR Godwin, Higgins, Kirk TE Pitts (used Njoku for a while until he got hurt and needed his roster spot) K Bass DEF 49ers & Dolphins (cutting them for first pickup)

    QB - it's killing me

    12 team. Non PPR 20yds = 1 PT. 6 points for all TDs .1 per yd rushing I have Tannehill (ranked 21st) that is my normal starter. But I've been holding onto and waiting on Justin Fields (34th). Well.... its not going well, especially the Fields experiment and its the main reason I end up losing. I've been thinking of going ahead and cutting one or both of them. Free agents to choose from are Sam Darnold - was looking good up until last week but has the best avg and points (ranked 10th in our leagues scoring) Matt Ryan - on bye this week. (ranked 13th) Turned a corner? Jameis Winston - on bye this week, 2 good games and 3 mediocre (14th) Heinicke - may not have the job much longer (19th) Goff - already have Swift and not really excited about this one (20th) Wentz - ankles? but did go for over 400 last week. has about the same avg as Tannehill (21st) because of 1 bad week. plays Houston this week (22nd) Lawerence - not sure about this one. less than Tannehill, has had a couple decent games but others were lackluster (23rd) There are others but they have less points and a lower avg than Tannehill so whats the point What do yall think ?

    RB struggles

    A little struggle here Dalvin Cook & Mattison - If they would sit Dalvin for the week it will be easier Mitchell & Sermon - Sermon to start after his 1 carry for 8 & a concussion. One out and another 1 hit away from going back out DeAndre Swift - been questionable with a groin. Is active vs Ravens Need 2. Early thought was Sermon & Mattison if Dalvin is sat down. Now Im thinking Swift as one but not sure on the other. Cook could play just enough to mess up Mattison if hes active so Sermon could be better if he doesnt get knocked out. If Dalvin is not active, then Mattison. What do yall think Ive also been back and forth with Tannehill vs Fields. Tannehill has been sucking but Fields is an unknown with possible upside but also could flop in a first start. Didnt do much last week after Dalton was hurt
  6. First off... its Non PPR but in my stupidity here is the back story I had Zeurilein with his 2 FG & XP misses along with Mostert going down after his 2nd carry or I wouldn't be here explaining this. But anyway. I was still up all day, until Melvin Gordon broke that 70yder with like 4 min left in their game. That combined with another turnover by their Defense over took me. I was then down .85. Or so I thought. Here is where I screwed myself. Our lineups used to lock at Noon central on Sunday's. No matter what. But we changed that rule last year and started locking players whenever their kickoffs happened. Well... I obviously wasn't thinking about that and here is what I did. Mostert goes down. We only have a 4 man bench. On that bench was Justin Fields, Trey Sermon, Swift & Jakobi Myers. So i did not want to lose them. Thinking my lineup was locked, I dropped Fant because I didnt know how well he would do plus I figured he was less likely to be snatched up and if he was then i didnt really care if I lost him and I would get his points since he was in my lineup initially. We are first come first served with no waivers. And we have sharks that lurk to take advantage. So bascially when blood is in the water you gotta go or get took. Like I said, I was thinking it locked at Noon, but I was wrong. I dropped Fant about 30 min before his game time. It never dawned on me that I would lose his points and I did. Had I realized it, I could have either picked him back up (dropped players dont lock with use doing no waivers) and dropped Jakobi like I should have done or I could have took someone like Kmet last night after. But I didn't think about it until last nights game was over and I found out I was down 7.2 without those points. With all of that said.. I still have the Ravens D. It is strictly turnovers, sacks, safeties & TDs so yardage and score doesn't play a part. So typically I will need 2 turnovers (3pts per) and 2 sacks (1pt per)to get the 8 pts I need to pull out the win. Of course a TD or safety scored normally could be a good factor as well. I know my chances aren't that great. So... should I drop Myers and grab one of the backup TEs? (Andrews & Waller of course aren't available.) I don't know if its even worth a shot with the guys available . Each transaction cost us $ which isn't that big of a deal. But are these guys worth it? And which one do you think would be the best option. Non ppr, but we do decimals so .1 for each yard which could make me only need 7.3 for a win instead of 8 if I strictly go Ravens D Ravens - Oliver or Tomlinson Raiders - Moreau, Carrier or Bowers

    Well crap

    In the league I'm in, the playoffs go for 2 weeks each. So this week is Week 1 of the Championship and of course next Week is the final. I faced Kamara today and of course I'm in a huge hole. Not only did he score 56.2pts, I left Thielen and his 16.5 on my bench. He almost cost me the past couple of weeks so I decided not to try it again. I did start Dalvin but he only got the 1 TD (16.5pts) instead of the several he could have had (they gave 2 to Irvin, 1 to Boone and 1 to Thielen). This is a 8 team PPR. I hate that small of the league but its a 2nd year work league so I played. Anyway here is my team QB Murray, Herbert and I picked up Hurts this week to either us or block my opponent from using RB Dalvin, Ekeler, Taylor, Jacobs WR AJ Brown, Aiyuk, Thielen, Dionte Johnson TE Henry (covid) Goedert and I picked up Kittle last week in preparation for his return K Tucker D :Steelers Right now my starting lineup is QB Murray but should I go Hurts RB Cook, Ekeler WR AJ Brown Aiyuk Flex Jonathan Taylor TE Kittle D Steelers K Tucker What if anything would you do different? It may all be for nothing but I wont give up. Never know what next week holds

    Never thought Id ask about this dude

    Well... never mind. Guess the guy revoked it
  9. I never thought it would come to this. I have Clyde Edwards-Helaire. As yall know Leveon is there now so all that I had hope for when drafting him has been diminished some. Anyway... I just received a trade off for Zeke Elliott. Any other time and year, this is a no brainer. But now... I dont know if thats a smart move. I am a Cowboys fan so I know all that comes with Zeke, positive & negative. So i need some unbiased opinions. What would yall do? Non ppr My other Rbs are David Johnson, Swift & Edmonds. I just picked up Jeff Wilson during his game the other night (first come first served no waivers) so I will be cutting him.

    Who ya feeling ?

    Well... I thought i had lucked out when i drafted Michael Thomas at 2.2 in a 12 man non ppr league. As you know, low production week 1 and now he has a high ankle sprain. We start 1 QB, 2 RB, 2 WR, TE, K & DEF and we only have a 4 man bench and COVID only IR. With that said my roster consists of this QB J. Allen, Roethlisberger RB CEH, David Johnson, Swift, Edmonds WR M. Thomas, Thielen, Deebo Samuel TE Hurst K Gonzales DF Ravens Rbs are hard to come by so I don't want to drop Swift or Edmonds. I was leaning towards Roethlisberger but he had a good week. And my only other choice that I don't really want to give up is Deebo. But he is on IR for a couple more weeks. I am pretty sure whoever i dropp will be snatched up immediately because i play in a league of sharks that smell blood in the water. With all that said. which one would you drop and which of these guys would you pick up Robby Anderson', Crowder, Valdes-Scantling, Watkins, Lazard, John Brown, Shenault, Cory Davis, Landry, Jeudy, P Williams, N'keal Harry. There are several others but this is just a sample

    Struggling with Skank RBs

    I did something this year that I never do. I took a WR (Hopkins) first and I haven't been able to recover. Ive went through Kerryon Johnson (IR), Peterson (was trash until I dropped him) , Drake (Miami), Edmonds (missed points when didn't use him and injured the time I used him), Walton (suspended but had already dropped) Currently I have Devonta Freeman (injured), Ty Johnson (concussion but sucked anyway) David Montgomery (rolled ankle so waiting to see if he can practice before Sunday) and Ronald Jones. Yeah HOT GARBAGE. Our trade deadline is over. Hard to make a trade in the league anyway. They always over value everything so hard to make a decent trade. We only start 2 Rbs and no flex. The rest of my roster is QB Watson, Brees WR Hopkins, Godwin , Diggs TE Waller K Butker DF 49ers I will probably drop Ty Johnson. Anyway, Here are my options... Tarik Cohen if Montgomery cant go ? Royce Freeman (tough matchup vs Vikings and splits down the middle) Mostert (will he be good to go? all 3 SF Rbs are dinged and Breida will be out) McKissic (not thrilled) Gore (Singletary …) Ballage (I am desperate) There are others but they are just backups. Hill was sniped from me right after Freeman went down for hes not even there.) What would you do?
  12. I keep flopping back and forth. I want to trust Gurley but its hard to seeing as its a late game. My lineup locks at Noon central so I have to make the decision before he is officially active or not. With that said... Non ppr. My choices are Gurley - just plug in trust and hope for the best Michel - on my roster but don't see going here Ingram - same as above Jamaal Williams - can pick him up and play it safe Elijah McGuire - same as above Alfred Blue - Forman is active so how much will he get Opponent has Kamara & McCaffery not to mention Mahomes and Thielen so its not gonna be easy to win either way.
  13. Here it is. The Championship Game. My opponent is my Undefeated 14 yr old Son in his first year in our league. He beat me earlier in the year giving me 1 of my 2 losses. His Rbs are Kamara & McCaffery and his QB is Mahomes so you can see I need all i can get. My Rbs are Gurley, Damien Williams, Spencer Ware, Sony Michel & Mark Ingram. As you all know.. There is nothing clear here. Normally I would have Gurley in and then hope for the best between one of the others. But now nothing is for certain. To make things worse, our league lineups lock on Sunday Noon (central time) so decisions have to be made and cant be switched out in the late games. So I cant just wait and see who is active and who isn't in the late games. If Gurley is ruled out I could grab Kelly or pick up Jamaal Williams and or Elijah McGuire if needed. But I have to know for sure whos out. I really need Ware to sit again. My sons lineup will probably be Mahomes, Kamara, McCaffrey, Thielen, A. Robinson, Cook, Butker, Vikings D vs MIne Watson, RB, RB, M. Thomas, Hilton (if he goes), Ebron, Zeurlein, Rams D With all that said... what do yall think?
  14. Hilton is now active. He had the shoulder and ankle last week. No practice this week. The Cowboys D has been tough as well. With that said... roll with the stud as usual or go safer with Sterling Shepard - OBJ out Josh Reynolds - I already have Gurley, Zeurlein and Rams D so... to much Curtis Samuel - How's Cam but could be a shoot out Monday Night. Others that could go with that's not so great Pettis - was questionable also Pretty much any of the Jags, Bills or Dolphins

    RB help for tonight

    Id go with Gordon if he plays or Jackson if he sits seeing as how the KC Def isn't as stout as the Bears
