    Who are you dropping?

    Thompson is the one I'm struggling with. Late round lottery pickups are worthy in our keeper league as value next year is this year's pick -1 round for a maximum of three years kept. I struck gold with an unknown rookie called David Johnson a few years back. He tied up a bench spot for the season because I liked the flashes I saw behind C2J and that paid off big time the following year at a super cheap price (14th round). I grabbed Thompson late this year before news of Shady going to KC in the hope that he would be the next DJ-like late round gem. I thought I'd park him until it was his turn, but now we're not even getting a chance to see what he can do in a real game. I'll kick myself if I drop him and he starts to blow up. With a WW pickup later in the season his keeper value won't be as good (round 9 vs round 13). Other than Thompson, the other one I'm likely going to drop is Big Ben (behind Brees) and possibly MVS (I have lots of WR depth already).

    Predictions for Opening Night

    Good job AxeElf! Although I don't think I'd share that you nailed Jimmy Graham. You should change that to Natalie Portman.

    Buffalo RBs

    With all the talk of McCoy's impact in KC, there's little about how things are going to shake up in Buffalo. Are we looking at Gore providing the veteran experience to groom Singletary? Or is Singletary going to be given the reins right off the bat? I haven't been following Bills camp at all to know how they've each been looking, but gut says the season starts with Gore starting with a slow transition to Singletary taking more and more snaps as the season goes along.

    He was active in our league in a game between two teams playing for the last playoff spot. One manager is very happy this morning. The other .. not so much.

    Help needed: Gordon game time decision

    Whew. That score made up for the uncertainty.

    Help needed: Gordon game time decision

    Disaster indeed. With Gordon, Mack and Chubb on my roster, I just traded away DJ for some WR help in Julio Jones. If Gordon doesn't go, I may regret this. Late game flex pickup/plug in would have to be Inman, MWilliams (if he goes) or roll the dice on Cobb coming back tonight.

    Jackson wants out of Tampa

    Add to that a comment on NFL Radio just now that the rain could be torrential at times with a decent wind, and that passing game becomes one to lean away from with others usable choices.

    Jackson wants out of Tampa

    With this news coming out, what does that do to his play today? I have him in my last flex spot and am debating pulling him for Funchess or Baldwin.
  9. I need Ryan and Engram to combine for 35 or more. I'd say this could go either way. I'm hoping Ryan pulls his typical home field magic. If not, I'll end up staring at Mack's 29.9 points on my bench dreaming about what could have been (over DJ's 7 points).

    Melvin Gordon Questionable

    The highs and lows of fantasy football. Excitement when Hyde got traded (I had Chubby on my bench), only to be followed by this. Guess I'm playing Chubby over Gordon. Can't say I'm overly excited by that.

    Questions - Steelers

    Sirius NFL radio has discussed a few times this season how self-serving the NFL's head of officiating has been this year. While in the past they've admitted to mistakes, this year has been all about justifying every call, no matter how bad. "It's easy to pass when you're self grading".

    Thoughts on Enunwa?

    I'm struggling with an underperforming WR lineup with Baldwin and D.Thomas, so looking for a spark where I can get it.

    Thoughts on Enunwa?

    Guy in my league dropped Enunwa after a weak game last week. Surprisingly, he made it past waivers and is sitting there free for pickup. I'm tempted, but I'm having a hard time figuring out his potential with the rook throwing to him. Where do you see him ending up? Potential drops I'm contemplating would be Sanu or Funchess.

    FU Week 3

    FU Tom Brady and his inability to get through the Lions defense that a rookie QB sliced and diced two weeks ago. So much for playing him over Matt Ryan this weekend.
