    Thoughts on Javonte Williams

    For some reason he's on the wire in my non-PPR league. My drop candidates are Jaylen Warren and Jerry Jeudy. Thoughts...
  2. What are your plans this week if Kupp returns from IR and starts? Are you benching Nacua? Are you keeping Kupp on the bench to see how the offense works with both in there? Or, are you rolling with it and starting both guys? Regardless of format.

    AJ Brown vs Cooper Kupp ROS

    Overall, I think Kupp is the superior player. But with the IR stint with the hamstring injury, I think it could linger most of the season. I just think for the entire 17 week fantasy season Brown could be better this year. Thoughts…

    PPR Newbie...Help with draft strategy

    Start 1 QB, 2 RB, 2 WR, 1 TE, 1 Flex, 1 D, 1 K. 10 teams, full PPR. I have always been either RB/WR or RB/RB depending on where I was in the draft order. I was also always a QB late guy, like round 8-9 or later. Also, in the home league, there is no TE position. WR/TE is a combined spot (as I think it should be. TE is the most unfair position in FF). This year with the high end QB it could change things but that's for another thread.
  5. I have been playing fantasy football for 27 years and have won 6 championships. My home league is in year 23 and has always been standard/non-PPR. I also played in TD only leagues back in the 1990's and early 2000's. This will be my first venture into PPR as a number of guys from the home league (all olds) have decided to try it. In doing mock drafts I seem to be focused on receivers and getting a top TE early (because of the extra point) which leaves me devoid at RB. What is the best path, in your opinion, to go on draft day? When do you jump in for the QB? When do you draft your first RB? Thanks in advance. Trying to get into the fantasy 21st Century (though still moving forward with the standard home league).
  6. And if so, what is it? Our league has a variety of trophies. The main two are the championship and the Toilet Bowl playoff winner. We also have trophies for two side pot games from throughout the season. One for a NFL Survivor pool and another for a pick ems game where we pick the winners each week of our fantasy leagues games. Both are fun and add another way to win money. Our league has been going now for 21 seasons and we've never had a trophy (funny, shaming or serious) for the team that finishes 2nd. I took the time to compile all 21 2nd place finishers and am looking to do a trophy. Just seeing what others do and for some ideas.

    What do you give your toilet bowl winner

    Toilet Bowl trophy (wooden toilet seat with placards listing all the winners and regular season records), $50 and #1 overall pick the following season. Money is not money back as entry fee for our league is $230. This team is not the actual worst team, its the team that won two consolation games from the four teams that did not make the regular playoffs. So in essence they are the 7th place team. The worst team went 0-2 in consolation and has the 4th pick in the next years draft.

    Sprained Shoulder for Jalen Hurts

    Thanks fellas. Great insight.

    Sprained Shoulder for Jalen Hurts

    After review, my top replacement choices are Lawrence, Minshew and Rodgers. The Miami pass D is dreadful (31st) which is a positive for Rodgers, plus the weather is acceptable with light rain and upper 50's which is great considering what many games are expected to have this week. With Lawrence questionable with the toe on a short week, do you all still see him shredding? The Minshew with a tough matchup on the road. This is such a massive decision. For the title! If I choose wrong I likely lose after an 11-2 regular season. Brutal.

    Sprained Shoulder for Jalen Hurts

    Awful. Championship week and my show pony probably will not play. Now what? Jared Goff or Trevor Lawrence Close to $1,000 on the line and those are my two choices? I'm sick.

    Cooper Kupp ankle injury - IR

    From that group I only roster DJ Moore and Meyers. So by your ranking starting Meyers is a no brainer over DJ Moore? Also, that said, all those guys are on my wire. This is a 10 team standard league so many of those RB4/5 and WR4/5 guys are available. Do any of you think I should snag any of those guys vs. Meyers, DJ Moore, K. Herbert or AJ Dillon?

    Cooper Kupp ankle injury - IR

    Is Allen Robinson really the best bet to replace Kupp in lineups? He's on my wire. Who would you start at Flex from this grouping? Standard scoring. Robinson DJ Moore J. Myers I. Pacheco G. Wilson R. White G. Pickens
  13. 10 team non-PPR. Dionte Johnson, DJ Moore, Kyle Pitts (no TE required) and George Pickens were all just dropped. Have Rashod Bateman, Jakobi Myers and Drake London. Any moves to be made? How effective will Bateman be? Thinking Bateman for Johnson. Thoughts on Moore?

    Handcuff Question

    Is it better to handcuff your own stud i.e. Cook with Mattison, Kamara with Ingram or grab the handcuff of another elite back that you may like better than the option you have on your roster or to keep that player away from the RB1 owner. So for example, one owner has Henderson or McCaffrey and you grab Michel or Hubbard? I've never thought it was vital that you handcuff your own stud, just get a high end handcuff from a top rushing offense. Thoughts...
