  1. My intent was to paint with a broad brush stroke; not everyone is in 16-team dynasty leagues. And while referencing only Yahoo leagues, below are the ownership % for some of the players on the list: Ben Watson is owned in 1% N'Keal Harry owned in 7% Benny Snell owned in 2% Dante Pettis owned in 16% Jamaal Williams in all of 19% Chris Herndon in 27% Henderson in 27% By no means am i looking for an argument, but I find it hard to believe that NONE of these guys are available in at least 1 of your leagues. However, since I don't know your formats, I really can't say for sure. Was just trying to help FWIW, Henry is still available in 1 of my leagues (short-bench), but I didn't expect to be available in the bulk of leagues, hence why I followed up with "if he's still out there"....because you never know. Good luck to everyone tonight on whoever they're trying to claim!
  2. debating between Buffalo and SF this week myself. Leaning Buffalo, but they also have WAS in week 9; which is why SF has me intrigued. Down to the final ~300 entries out of over 1700.
  3. The more I've been thinking about it; I decided to put my claim in for Henry. I didn't want to make it too team specific as I felt that this question "could" be something others were considering too. FWIW, I have Kelce in this league and it's a short bench (5 spots). While it'll definitely be a bit tougher to navigate add/drop spots, I think his upside is just too great to let someone have for free. Great question; and I'm not sure why there isn't more love/ talk about Metcalf ticking up. Possibly b/c he's owned in many leagues? Regardless, while it might not be official yet, I don't see how Dissly comes back this least not during the fantasy season. Which means there's really only 1 big-bodied target there now.
  4. Maybe "doghouse" isn't the best term; but he looked really good and appears to be at the very least splitting carries with Jones. And if Jones keeps fumbling, missing wide open passes, Williams has the potential to lead this backfield.
  5. Sure, you don't like to have 1 WR take away from the other, but IMHO, if i had Lockett, I'd still try to grab Metcalf. He is a huge body and I think will be Wilson's #1 target in the RZ. If i had a 50-50 decision and 1 player is on the same team as someone I currently have, then i'd probably bench the stack, but aside from that, I'm playing the talent regardless of teams
  6. Actually a decently better Waiver week than the past 2-3 have been IMO: QB's: Darnold - has to be at the top of the list. 1 game in and he looked pretty darn good. tough matchup this week, but pretty easy Cousins - Lions are a bit of a tougher matchup, but he has the weapons and it's possible they are actually starting to use them Josh Allen Great matchup this week RB's: Jamaal Williams - at the least a 50-50 with Jones in the doghouse; might be my top priority if available Darrell Henderson/ Malcolm Brown (if available) - Gurley still out, Brown looks to be the lead back, but Henderson has the burst Alexander Mattison - might be the best handcuff in the league; and actually has some weekly flex value week to week Benny Snell - I don't trust Conner to be/ stay healthy WR's: Robbie Anderson (if somehow still out there) - #1 Priority over all positions if there Golden Tate (again, if available) - not sure when Engram, Barkley, & Shepard are back, but he should be getting a lot of targets Jameson Crowder - Darnold is back; Crowder is back to being a viable flex option (more value in PPR) Auden Tate - getting a ton of targets still Dante Pettis - the Niners look GOOD; and Pettis could (should) be the best WR on the team DK Metcalf (if available) Dissley injury opens up things more for him. Lower value in PPR, but HUGE Red Zone threat N'Keal Harry - Back at practice. Was the Pats 1st round pick. their other WR's are banged up. Could be a VERY sneaky waiver claim you can get for cheap this week who pays big dividends down the road TE's: Hunter Henry - if he's still out there, you need to get him (will pose a question for him at the end of this post) Chris Herndon - more of a wait and see add as we don't know when he'll be back, but has top 10 TE potential Ben Watson - back on the Pats; who need a TE... so there's value there DST: BUF - if available, might be the a top 3 Defense the rest of the year SF - see above, but maybe top 5 JAX - good match up this week vs CIN Question to pose: If Hunter Henry is available in your league, but you already have a top TE (Kelce, Kittle, etc...) would you still burn a top priority for Henry this week?
  7. Trayveon Williams was just activated. Depending on league size, he might be worth a stash
  8. Happy Week 6 Bloom!!! Got 2 leagues I have questions with: League 1: 12-team, .5 PPR, Passing Redraft league (short bench) (QRRWWTFKD) My roster: QB: L. Jackson RB: Chubb, Henry, Montgomery, Singletary, WR: A. Cooper, J. Gordon, Mike Williams, Tyreek Hill, Robby Anderson TE: Kelce, Hockenson K: Gould DST: BAL Question: Would you drop anyone for: ̶B̶̶̶r̶̶̶e̶̶̶e̶̶̶s̶̶̶ ̶(̶a̶d̶d̶e̶d̶ ̶t̶h̶i̶s̶ ̶m̶o̶r̶n̶i̶n̶g̶)̶ Chase Daniels (speculative add/ trade chip) Hunter Henry League 2: 12-team, .5 PPR, Passing TD's = 4pts, 3yr Keeper league (QRRWWTFKD) My roster QB: Watson RB: Kamara, Chubb, Ekeler, Montgomery, Mattison, Darrell Williams WR: Nuk, Evans, Watkins, Chark, J. Gordon, DK Metcalf, Tyrell WIlliams TE: M. Andrews K: Butker DST: CAR Question 1: Would you drop anyone for: Drew Brees - decent backup for Watson's bye? Darrell Henderson - don't trust Gurley to stay healthy Trayveon Williams - just activated; worth a stash? Thanks again in advance
  9. I think you made my point for me; a "flex" option as long as Rudolph is under center, but he's still looking doubtful to play this week and who knows how long he'll stay in the concussion protocol; that hit was brutal. So, basically: With Rudolph = no more than a flex option Without Rudolph = not really worth owning over so many of the other WR/ RB flyers of the week IMO Also, with recent Gurley news (link below), not only Malcolm Brown, but possibly even Darrell Henderson would be worth the speculative add this week:

  11. I don't own DJ, but do have Darrell and while I can see Darrell having more week-to-week value as McCoy & Other Williams have the injury propensity, I think Edmonds has the potential upside of a low RB1 if DJ goes down. I hear ya and with Adams still hurt, might still be a "hold", but that GB passing game is just not what it once was. If I'm in a pinch and need to drop someone for a bye week/ injury, I'd rather have the floor of a LOT of WR's over MVS for a 1-week fill-in. Longterm I think he could hold more value, but I'm extremely disappointed in this GB passing game from a fantasy perspective
  12. Not sure if it warrants it's own weekly thread, but I think it's worth creating something to follow players who you'd be looking to drop for these weekly waiver adds. Below are some of my thoughts: QB's: honestly wouldn't knock anyone for dropping any QB they don't feel is performing outside like the top 5 or so as you can likely stream someone any given week who could get you more points than the QB8 - QB14 RB's: Darrell Williams - would like to "HOLD", but depending on league/ roster size & injuries/ bye weeks, I can see dropping him for the DJ (Edmonds) or Cook (Mattison) handcuffs Gallman - he's out this week and it looks like Brackley will be back sooner than we thought Jaylen Samuels - out for over a month now; easy drop Malcom Brown - Gurley cuff most likely, but don't really see him holding much value unless Gurly goes down and even then, i'm not sure i'd feel confident to start Rashaad Penny - Carson back to being the man in SEA Mostert - another one I could see holding, but he's now behind 2 RB's; albeit both are fairly injury prone WR's: Deebo Samuels/ Goodwin/ Pettis - I don't see any SF WR really holding much value this year MVS/ Allison - see above, replace SF with GB (aside from a "healthy" Adams of course) Diontae Johnson - Juju = the only WR even worth owing in PIT Agholor - barring Alshon getting injured again, Agholor is essentially worthless Corey Davis - can be dropped in 10-team leagues and possibly in 12-teams if the spot is needed Sterling Shepard - personally I'd hold, but who knows how long the concussion is going to keep him out. If in a pinch, I could see dropping Cole Beasley TE's: OJ Howard - if he hasn't been dropped already... Ben Watson - high hopes to be activated for NE...not so much both Indy TE's I'm sure I'm missing some, but this should be a good start
  13. only way the floor would have been worse this week was if he lost a fumble and ended the day with a negative score...
  14. I think this is key; and even though Darnold isn't exactly an elite QB, just having him back allows the offense to be a bit better and, in turn, not having the defense on the field for the majority of the game(s).
  15. good Morning Sig! hopefully you didn't lose by 0.5pts last week like I did... but that was week 4, let's focus on week 5! I currently have JAX defense, but the following DST's are available: BUF NO CAR KC Which DST do you like best this week and (if different) who do you like for the ROS? A̶l̶s̶o̶,̶ ̶d̶o̶ ̶y̶o̶u̶ ̶t̶h̶i̶n̶k̶ ̶T̶y̶r̶e̶e̶k̶ ̶H̶i̶l̶l̶ ̶p̶l̶a̶y̶s̶ ̶t̶h̶i̶s̶ ̶w̶e̶e̶k̶?̶ ̶ (edit: already answered by Andy Reid). of course they have the SNF game, so if he's active we likely won't know till after the morning games are already going. Lastly, would you drop TJ Hock for any of the below (Kelce is my TE1): K. Hunt (I own Chubb) A. Mattison C. Herndon H. Henry D. Petis
