    Titans players/staff test positive for COVID-19

    I wouldn't say laughing stock. From here it's more like a mix of shock, disbelief and even pity. The numbers coming out of the States are mind blowing, and not in a good way. (quote attribution corrected)

    Falcons at Packers: MNF Discussion

    Matty Ice looks sloppy tonight.
  3. I was thinking about this earlier today and have proposed this to my league, but I can't force it in for this week given that I'm probably the biggest beneficiary. With Diontae Johnson and Jonnu Smith already forced into a bye week and Godwin out, not knowing whether or not Hill is a go this week is painful. I'm scraping the barrel with Sanders, Renfrow and whatever other waiver wire scrub I can find to fill in for Hill (likely Greg Ward). I wish I thought of this earlier!

    Fournette to Bucs

    So with all the injuries to elite RBs today, are we looking at Fournette being the league winning draft choice that no one wanted? He was the butt of a few jokes at our draft as he continued to fall to the 8th round.

    The week of the TE!

    Fant's on the board now with a TD and a 2pt conversion. Not a lot of yards at 35, but his box score's pretty good.

    Laviska Shenault

    At this point in the season, what have you got to lose to pick him up and stash him (if you don't have any sort of cap involved)? I took Golden Tate as my Mr. Irrelevant pick this season. With Tate hurting, I'm going to drop him for a potential unknown lottery ticket. If it doesn't pan out, m'eh, he gets dropped next week. I like the news of potentially moving to RB when needed.
  7. I see what you did there. Nicely done.

    Your first ever fantasy football pick

    Geez, can't tell you my first year, but pretty close to 2000. Around years 3-4 I rode Priest Holmes to two consecutive championships. Hard to remember who else was on those rosters.

    Wind Concerns - Week 8

    Weather report means playing Brees over Allen for me. I'd prefer to see Brees get a game under his belt before playing him, but with the wind in Buffalo now predicted to be in the 29 - 34 mph range with "gusts as high as 55 mph", Allen becomes a huge risk.
  10. Man, this is the exact same dilemma that I've been flip flopping on all morning. I was hoping to wake up to reports that the wind and rain have calmed down in Buffalo, and while the rain doesn't appear to be as much of an issue, the wind sounds like it's still going to be a huge issue. So on one hand a healthy Allen in heavy wind, or a returning Brees that we haven't seen yet. I feel like I'm leaning towards Brees now. I think the ceiling is higher this week, but unfortunately the floor is probably lower if he doesn't last long. "Windy, with a southwest wind 23 to 28 mph increasing to 29 to 34 mph in the afternoon. Winds could gust as high as 55 mph"

    Antonio Callaway - 4 Game Suspension

    Now with Callaway coming back this week, is he worth a stash? There are a lot of mouths to feed in that offence with OBJ, Landry and Chubb, but he showed some decent flashes in the past. My team has been hit badly with injuries, so he's catching my eye as a possible hidden gem.

    NFL.com Waiver setting question

    We tried the "worst to first" strategy once. Everyone hated it and the next year we were right back to a rolling waiver. It adds an element of strategy as to when you want to burn a high priority.

    Drew Brees Thumb Injury - Out 6 Weeks

    FML. I had two QBs on my roster. Brees and Big Ben. Time to find a scrub off the wire!

    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

    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.

    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.
  23. 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.
