  1. I loaded up on Doyle, faded everyone else.
  2. What the?!? FanDuel is showing an entirely different type of contest! $60,000 salary cap Lineup: QB RB RB WR WR TE FLEX SUPERFLEX Whoa! Odd time to be rolling out something so different. Is anyone else seeing this? Am I in a secret focus group? EDIT TO ADD: Wow, I've dreamed of dumping kickers and defense for weeks! Now's my chance, right?
  3. I'm $30 in $2.80 out at the moment! However, I have lots of Antonio Brown and Brandin Cooks remaining in primetime. I got clobbered at TE this week. Too much Kelce and Anderson, not enough Burton. What happened to Jimmy Graham, KP? I had him stacked with Russ, but he was blanked.
  4. That's awesome! If you don't mind, I'd love to hear more about this lineup, and how you arrived at it. I have a lot to learn about lineup construction based on my recent poor results.
  5. Tell me about it. I ran $20 in fifteen $1/$2 entries into the THU - MON slate, 100% Kamara. I'm a Kamara believer. Every podcast I have listened to recently has been sounding warning bells and calling for Kamara to regress based on his low snaps, but I believe in his talent, usage, and supporting cast. He was off to a great start Thursday before the concussion. I'm in a big hole, but maybe I'm not drawing dead. My 15 entries were 1 GPP, 14 cash+. Looking around my contests, Kamara was anywhere from 30% - 36% - 48% owned!
  6. $$$ pool is picking all 17 weeks. Only 1 entry of ~400 is still perfect. It's not me. Steelers seem to be stone cold lock hosting the Packers in prime time, yet I find myself wanting to save them, possibly for Week 14 hosting Baltimore. Instead, I'm favoring using Washington or Atlanta this week, even in divisional matchups. This week strikes me as the last time I would feel confident using the Falcons.
  7. Shepard scratching, and the wind gusts in KC/NYG have thrown my LUs into a Sunday morning scramble. Even in light of the weather and matchup, I'm having trouble paying up for Jaguars defense. I've been burned all season paying up for chalk Ds. That said, the Jaguars are heavy heavy favorites of all three IVC predictors, and they are way better at forecasting than my unscientific hunches. Was stacking Gordon + Chargers D, but considering a pivot to Hunt + Chiefs D, and paying down at WR3 with Ellington. The G-Men starting a UDFA at tackle...
  8. I still have NOLA available, so I'm rolling with the Saints this week. Steelers would have been my next favorite. Might use them next week when Brett Hundley comes to town.
  9. My $$$ pool is not run online, and all picks lock for the week Wed at 8:30pm ET, 24 hours before first game of the week. I, along with roughly half of the pool, now find ourselves drawing dead with Tom Savage!
  10. Holy crap I was left sweating my CIN pick last week! Fluke defensive TD bailed me out. The Bengals O-Line is terrible. Can't open holes for Mixon, can't pick up blitzes.... which has me wanting to play JAX this week. I don't see how the Bengals can go down to Florida and keep Dalton upright. I still have Houston left. Seems like that is the consensus pick.
  11. I took a similar approach, firing $25 into 19 THU - MON entries, almost all are $1 50/50s. Total fade of Thursday game. Sure, there were the usual "Thursday Night Heroes" who game-stacked MIA and BAL, but they were a striking minority. I fear that I am drawing dead because several people were savvy enough to play just Tucker + Ravens. My lineups are 42 in the hole before taking the field.
  12. I'm only seeing the same old Points / Value / H-Value links in the line above the position links. Where are these new Value and a H-Value columns?
  13. My first stab LU, made Tuesday without IVC or my usual regimen of tout podcasts. Rivers -- Gordon/Ingram -- AJG / K Allen / Agholor -- H Henry - Elliott -- Saints Too many Chargers here, but you get the point that I am expecting big things from them. I suppose conventional roster theory would call for me to pivot off of one or two Chargers, and "run it back" with some Patriots. Guessing where the volume will go in New England is a hopeless crapshoot. I agree with other posters that pricing feels noticeably tighter this week.
  14. I'm a Bengal homer who hates banking on them in Survivor pools. That said, I'm going with them hosting the Colts this week. The Bengals are relatively healthy and should be well rested after mailing it in for the second half in Pittsburgh last week. Vikings and Saints are solid picks as well. I would be all over Vikings if it were a true home game.
  15. Disappointing week but total losses were minor overall, so I can't complain too much. Had tons of McCoy / Ivory combos, but totally faded Zeke. I had so much Rishard Matthews! I agree with KP -- it's time to quit paying up for defenses.
