    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
  8. 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.

    Never thought Id ask about this dude

    Well... never mind. Guess the guy revoked it

    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
  15. Standard non ppr . With Ware doubtful, Need 1, I have Sony Michel & Mark Ingram on my roster. Can drop Malcolm Brown ( edit...yes i know Brown is on IR. I used him to back up Gurley, and knowing that he is out is why he is my choice to drop to pick up whoever I need We have a 4 man bench,I don't have a backup WR or QB either) and pick up Damien Williams, Elijah McGuire or even Kenneth Dixon. Michel- looked like he was gonna be awesome, but as the Pats always do, have to screw it all up by mixing in Burkhead on top of White and now are giving Devlin the scores vs Pittsburgh Ingram - You never know when hes gonna go off and when hes not gonna be a factor. vs Panthers Damien - has been scoring but what about the other Williams and West? vs Chargers McGuire - questionable himself and is Crowell gonna be out? vs Texans Dixon - who knows whats gonna happen here but vs Bucs

    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
  17. drmidd

    Decisions Decisions

    Ingram or Michel Njoku or Ebron I have Watson on bye, QB wire stinks. Choices are Dak, Alex Smith or Mullens. Others but these are the 3 im mainly considering
  18. drmidd

    RB position took a hit

    Well... I just lost Lynch to IR. And Michel also was hurt and his time table hasn't been set. They say its not as serious as first thought. I have Gurley as my main guy and I also have Ingram. We only start 2 RBs and no flex. If Ingram had done half as well as he did the first game back, I wouldn't have much of a second thought. The Free agents out there to get are: Doug Martin/Richard Dion Lewis Chris Thompson Barber/Jones III A. Jones Actually there are several others that are in 2 or 3 RB backfields, but those are the main ones. We only have a 4 man bench. And im gonna need to pick up another QB for Week 10. Take one of these guys or just roll with Gurley & Ingram for now?

    Offered OBJ for Ingram

    Ive been offered OBJ for Ingram. OBJ was a consensus late 1st-2nd rd pick. But he hasn't has that type of performance. He is actually rated #37 in our non-ppr scoring. As you know Ingram is coming back this week but what should I expect from him? We start 2 Rb & Wrs No flex. I start Gurley & Thomas as my #1 Rb and WR. My #2s are Lynch or Michel at RB and I have Hilton, Fuller & Baldwin at WR. Both Hilton & Fuller have hammy problems and Baldwin isn't 100% either. As for Rb, Michel did good tonight, but he is a Patriot Rb and we all know how things can just turn bad. And can Lynch sustain what hes been doing? Anyway... Id appreciate some opinions. Thanks
  20. drmidd

    Lynch , Michel or Ingram

    Start 1 out of these 3 to pair with Gurley Lynch vs Chargers Michel vs Colts Ingram vs Redskins (first game back, how big of a role?)
  21. drmidd

    Which WR should I start?

    I would go Ridley. They haven't been able to stop him the past couple of weeks
  22. drmidd

    Trade Ingram?

    We only start 2 Rbs & 2 Wrs. No flex. I have Hilton & Fuller with Hammy problems. My other 2 are Thomas & Baldwin. Should I just plug Baldwin in, drop Baldwin for another or should I make a trade? I dangled Ingram, Michel & Lynch out as trade bait. The owner I play this week asked if I would be interested in OBJ. Hes not officially offering, just sending out a feeler. Im nervous about Michel because of Patriot reasons and wondering if Lynch can sustain. Ive been waiting on Ingram because I know he can be a beast. But will he do as good this year with the way Kamara has been playing? Is it worth getting OBJ for maybe a 1 week fix? All my Wrs besides Baldwin, who has been hurt, have done better than OBJ. If he was a top WR it would be easy. But right now hes only the #37 Wr in the league. We only have a 4 man bench so sooner or later Im going to have to drop someone to plug in for bye weeks on a couple of positions.So far I haven't been able to do a 2-1 to upgrade one spot and open up another. I also know how hard it is to get RBs so that's another concern if something happens with one of them. Its not as hard to find another WR in this league. Opinions please?
  23. I have Mixon vs Lions but could pick up CJ Anderson vs Skins. Have the Eagles D vs Raiders but could take the Steelers vs Texans. We only get points for turnovers and sacks and of course Tds and safeties. Worth it? Over coaching or should I make a move? I started out with a 0 from Rudolph last night. Thielen only scored 2 so luckily I'm not further behind. I'm up against: A. Smith Gurley, Kamara Thielen (2pts), Fitzgerald Kelce Cards D Prater Thanks.
  24. drmidd

    Cooks or Gordon? Chiefs or Steelers?

    I think I would go Cooks. Offers more insurance going against Brady in a way.
  25. drmidd

    Pick 1 RB

    Gillislee has the TD upside with Burkhead out. Perine is active so that hurts Bibbs unless Perine gets re-injured. Kerwin is a little banged up himself I think. No easy call here but you wouldn't be asking if it was right.
