  1. 10 Team .5 PPR league. Start 1QB, 2RB, 2WR, 1TE, 1FLEX, K, DEF I have Patrick Mahomes and Lamar Jackson at QB. Here is the rest of my team....I am 1-2 right now- RB- Kerryon Johnson, LeSean McCoy, Royce Freeman, Frank Gore, Tevin Coleman, Raheem Mostert WR- DeAndre Hopkins, TY Hilton, Tyrell Williams, Terry McLaurin TE- Travis Kelce Do I make a deal with Jackson for Gurley? I've tried a few others and couldn't get anyone to bite.
  2. I 0-2 I am tempted to do Mahomes for Kamara and just go for it. If Kamara can be close to himself for a few weeks until Brees gets back and Jackson keeps rolling, things could get really good. That's a few "ifs" though, but my whole RB corp is a big bunch of "ifs"!
  3. I just worry about the "fumble-itis" Carson showed in that last game. Penny came in and did well. I may have an option to trade for Penny if I get Carson, but it's no guarantee.
  4. 10 Team .5 PPR League. Start 1QB, 2RB, 2WR, 1TE, 1FLEX, 1K, 1DEF I currently have Lamar Jackson and Patrick Mahomes and really need help at the RB position. I am 0-2 to start, but am also the #2 scoring team in the league, so it's been at least some bad luck. Was offered Carson for Jackson and Kamara for Mahomes. With Brees gone, do I still need to do the Kamara deal? My current RB are- Kerryon Johnson, LeSean McCoy, Royce Freeman, Tevin Coleman, Raheem Mostert and Frank Gore. UGLY!
  5. 12 Team League- I'm pretty happy with my offense, but I'd love to get input on how you think I did with drafting my defensive guys. I'm pretty happy, but it's good to get a few unbiased opinions! Tackles and assists are all 1 pt each Sacks are 5 pts each Fumble Recoveries are 6 pts each INTs are 6 pts each TDs are 6 pts each We also count return yards at 1 point per 10 yards and return TDs are 6 pts, so a few guys really go up in value. We start 2 DL, 2LB, 2CB and 2S DL- Danielle Hunter, Olivier Vernon and Nick Bosa LB- Christian Kirksey, Jayon Brown and Patrick Onwuasor CB- Adoree Jackson (gets a lot of extra points as a return man), Kyle Fuller, James Bradberry S- Jabrill Peppers (again extra points as a return guy), Keanu Neal, Justin Reid My offense (no PPR, QBs get 6 pts for TDs- start 1QB, 2RB, 2WR, 1TE, 1K) if you want to comment on the whole team- QB- DeShaun Watson, Lamar Jackson RB- Nick Chubb, Chris Carson, Miles Sanders, Austin Ekeler, Alexander Mattison WR- Tyreek Hill, Chris Godwin, Marquez Valdes-Scantlin, Michael Gallup TE- Evan Engram, Trey Burton K- Brett Maher Thanks!
  6. If Chubb is there (or any of Barkley, Kamara, McCaffrey inexplicably fall to you), that's who I take. If it's down to Johnson and those other 4 are gone.....then I take Hopkins.
  7. 10 Team .5 PPR League- Start 1QB, 2RB, 2WR, 1TE, 1Flex My RB are a bit of a mess. I currently have- Kerryon Johnson, Tevin Coleman, Tarik Cohen, LeSean McCoy, Royce Freeman and Justin Jackson Someone just cut Darwin Thompson and I am wondering if it is worth it to try to pick him up over any of these guys (I'm only at the #5 waiver spot, so no guarantees I'd get him). My top 2 candidates are Jackson and McCoy. I am holding out hope that McCoy catches on somewhere and maybe gets rejuvenated a bit. Is it worth cutting Jackson for Thompson?
  8. I had pick 6 a few days ago and took Hopkins over both guys. I've been seeing Chubb go as early as #4 in some drafts (probably because of your concerns....Elliott holding out, Johnson a risk, etc), so don't expect him to be there later on.
  9. 10 Team .5 PPR, everything else pretty standard- I had the 4th pick. Let me know how I did- QB- Cam Newton, Mitch Trubisky RB- Ezekiel Elliott, Todd Gurley, Melvin Gordon, Duke Johnson, Austin Ekeler, Tony Pollard WR- Tyreek Hill, Tyler Lockett, Tyler Boyd, Marquez Valdes-Scantling TE- Mark Andrews, Greg Olsen K- Michael Badgley Def- Dallas
  10. 10 Teams, .5 PPR, standard scoring elsewhere- 1QB, 2RB, 2WR, 1Flex, 1TE, 1K, 1DEF.......I had the 6th pick QB- Patrick Mahomes, Lamar Jackson RB- Kerryon Johnson, Tevin Coleman, Tarik Cohen, Royce Freeman, LeSean McCoy, Justin Jackson WR- DeAndre Hopkins, TY Hilton, AJ Green, Marvin Jones TE- Travis Kelce K- Michael Badgley DEF- Houston Didn't get really any RB I wanted, but hopefully Kerryon steps up and maybe Royce Freeman breaks out.....or McCoy turns back the clock!
  11. Who do you like for the rest of the year? This is a standard Yahoo PPR league. I currently have Crowell, but Henry is available and I am tempted. I don't really need either for this week....more for depth. Thanks!
  12. That's pretty normal for him. In 2016, he had 597 Rec yds with just 1 TD, but he finished #13 overall and #11 in PPG because he had another 849 return yards, plus 114 rushing yards and another TD there. In 2015 he was incredible. He had 664 Rec yds with 6TDs and then 1231 return yards with 2 more TD (only 20 rushing yards). We didn't use return yards then, but if we had, he would have been the #2 overall and #2 ppg WR in the league after Antonio Brown.....and that was the year Brown had 136 catches with 1800+ yards. There aren't too many players where return yards make such a difference, but Lockett is definitely one of them.
  13. Last year's WR points in my league- 1. DeAndre Hopkins- 208, 13.9ppg 2. Antonio Brown- 207, 14.8ppg 3. Keenan Allen- 175, 10.9ppg 4. Tyler Lockett- 175, 10.9ppg 5. Tyreek Hill- 174, 11.6ppg Lockett had 1186 return yards last year with 1TD (plus another 58 rushing yards), so that bumps his overall numbers up to 1799 yards and 3 TD. Any other opinions on choosing between Cohen and Howard?
