  1. Not looking good.... Sitting +10 over the cut. Only have Dorsett left (-10). Good luck to to everyone who advances. Fournette...I might have to break up with you forever.
  2. This rule is because of the hit Rodgers took last year. I find it amusing that Clay Mathews is the one in the center of this controversy.
  3. When Eli is your starting QB, you know it's going to be close. One might argue that by selecting Eli in the first place, you have already sealed your fate.
  4. Add Fournette to this list - 1,727 - 349 of these owners have Yeldon
  5. But with guys like Gronk and Reed, you can't use just 2. Injuries and games like today make it very difficult. In the case of Gronk, he is the most expensive TE, so not only do you have to spend big money to get him, you have to spend even more on extra TEs.
  6. In our league....you can't pick up any player until the person is activated from ir. It's not a rule, the program just wont let you pick anyone up. So it just kind of takes care of itself.
  7. 12 team ppr, start 1 qb, 2 RB, 3 WR, 1TE, 1 Flex Team A trades away: Alex Collins Team B trades away: Sony Michel Team A in rebuild
  8. Maybe a slight over-reaction....but next year...just wait for next year man. He will be back better than ever! Just you wait and see.
  9. Well....I held him for five years now....not going to give up faith on him yet. I may need an intervention at some point.
  10. And here is your first place team after one week: Entry 101815 D Brees,J Goff J Conner,T Gurley,S Barkley,C Carson M Thomas,T Hill,J Gordon,K Cole J Cook,R Gronkowski G Zuerlein,K Fairbairn,H Butker Ravens,Steelers,Packers Talk about domination. This is what an 18 teamer can do when the planets align. It will be interesting to see how this team does each week. Week 12 will be a difficult with zero room for error or injury.
  11. 2 nights ago I switched out McCaffrey for Penny and spent the extra $ in other areas. No one was talking about Penny, so I decided to swim up steam on this one. Penny is only on 229 other teams for 1.52 %. My other RB's are Gordon, Fournette, Royce, Barber, and Conner. I figured that Gordon, Fournette, and Royce would carry most of the load for the season and Barber and Conner would be nice Penny insurance until he picks up more of the share in carries with Carson. It's an expensive risk (and money probably could have been better spent at a different position), but I'm hoping to catch lightning in the bottle for the second half of the season.
  12. I had Gurley for about 2 weeks....but I never felt satisfied with the rest of my roster. Throw in the week 12 bye makes it difficult to roster him.
  13. I'm going roll with Burton, Njoku, Goedert, and Vannett. I was going to go with Gronk plus Goedert and Vannett (same price as the group in the first sentence) but I can't trust Gronk to stay healthy....and even if he did, he had several bad games last year. Throw in that his bye week is 11...it's a pass on Gronk for me. So to answer your question.......I hope you do well, because I have a very similar plan.
  14. Going over last years top 10 finishers. Here are some things that stuck out to me. QB Position -No Brady on any of the teams. Weeks 13 through 16 were very pedestrian. -Several different combinations were used but $6 Goff, $17 Winston, $11 Wentz, $20Wilson were on several teams. RB Position -Every single team had Hunt. Shouldn't be a surprise because of the injury to Ware in the pre-season and Hunt only cost $10. He was on a very high % of teams to begin with. -The rest of the top ten had at least one of the following or a combination of them: $35 Bell-5, $30 McCoy-3, $27 Gurley-6, $19 McCaffrey-4 -Besides $10 Hunt, $7 Burkhead, and $7 J. Williams, no one under $19 made a significant contribution. WR Position -The top ten teams rostered on average 1-$20+ guy, 2 $10-19 guy, and 4 $9 or less guy. -$5 Kupp was rostered 6 times and $5 Robby Anderson was rostered 5 times. TE Position -Gronk was on zero teams. He missed 2 games because of injury throughout the season and had another 5 games where he was pedestrian. -$13 Ertz was on 7 teams. My take away from this: -Having an elite QB is not needed to to win this contest. -Spending big money at the RB position is money well spent. -Quantity over High $ guys is better at the WR position. Of course, you have to pick the right ones. -Gronk scares me. He costs a lot and you can't count on him to be healthy the whole season. I would rather spread my money out on a couple TEs in the middle.
