  1. Psyched for football to be back! Haven't taken a major look at Week 1 yet, but am thinking the chalk defense play is going to target @ NYJ or @ Bills every single week.
  2. Pulled out my cash but still have enough FD points for the $1 GPP: Ryan Freeman, Ty Edelman, Cobb, [Sanu/Gabriel/Hogan] Cook, [Bryant/Gostk.], Pats Seems like Cobb and Cook will be the beneficiaries of GB WR injuries. However I haven't seen anything about Jeff Janis -- when pressed into service last year in the playoffs due to WR injuries, he had a huge 7-145-2 game. What am I missing?
  3. I'm thinking the NE game favors Edelman, Lewis/White and Bennett in the middle of the field, over the outside WRs and Blount due to Houston have a solid perimeter pass defense and run defense. Lewis got pretty decent touch numbers (double digit run attempts) in the last few weeks of the regular season in order to get him primed. Always difficult to guess with Bill, but I think he's the primary back for this game until Blount takes over in the second half to grind down the clock.
  4. I think the best alternative to the Pats is to play the Chiefs at home, and stack with T. Hill. If he runs back a PR, you get double points. As good as he is, I think it's more likely that the Pats force Brock into multiple turnovers, but it's a pretty decent high risk, high reward play (but will also be fairly popular in the GPPs).
  5. Made two initial LUs before the value charts are out. ASmith at home is just too cheap at 6800 to pass up, as it makes room for so many other studs. He also usually rushes a bit more in the playoffs, and there's a chance Andy Reid dials up 50 pass attempts as he did last year against NE. 1) Smith Zeke, Freeman Baldwin, Cobb, Sanu --> punt at WR3 Kelce, Gosk, Pats 2) Smith Zeke, Coleman --> punt at RB2 Baldwin, Dez, Cobb Kelce, Santos, Pats
  6. This was my first thought looking at the RBs. Only other considerations for RB in my opinion are Bell (but 10k), Zenner (but @ Seattle) and Ajayi (more expensive than Miller). I'm hoping multiple Cook TOs and Houston keeping the ball out of the hands of Brock leads to a heavy workload. My LU so far: Wilson - seems to be the best value at QB Bell / Miller - for reasons above, Bell should be worth the cost and other than Brown and ODB are the only studs available. Adams / Baldwin / Tate -- I like Adams for his price more than Jordy (1.5K less). Baldwin is a somewhat risky stack with Wilson, but I like his price. For WR3, I'm thinking Tate over Crabtree. I figure the Cook factor is worse than Tate having to deal with Seattle DBs. I'm thinking Sherman covers outside WRs and perhaps Jones while Tate gets moved around potentially to the slot and picks up a lot of short passes. Stafford >>> Cook. But would love to hear other opinions here. CJ / Kicker / Houston -- Would like to have Graham but there's no cash. Houston seems like the chalk Def.
  7. My main damn cash Lineup with ASmith put up 117.5 to miss the cut on 90% of my 50/50s. That lateral to Poe was the difference!
  8. Crap, I have most lineups built around Smith, Cooper, Maclin and Kelce too. Thanks for the heads up, it's worth monitoring as the weather could easily change from forecast 48 hours out.
  9. Need a cheap WR3 to fill a hole in this cash lineup: ASmith Bell, McCoy/Michael Cooper, Landry/Maclin, [???] Kelce/Walker, Haush/Crosby/Novak, Bills/Titans I'll probably play 2-3 variations of this lineup, and am looking at the following WR3s: Cole Beasley Tavon Austin Robert Woods Michael Thomas Cameron Meredith I don't love any of them, but the Value Chart is all over Thomas and Meredith. Maybe a dent for Thomas is that Snead is back (although he is used differently than Thomas who's more in the Colston role). Meredith has just one data point, which was a nice game last week but before that had just 4-28, but there's so little history. Assuming that Dez comes back puts a slight dent in Beasley, but he's still probably one of the safer punts for 5-10 points. Tavon Austin has a nice matchup but really have a hard time putting him in the lineup. Robert Woods has a nice matchup as the "WR1" for the Bills but is more of a GPP play. Beasley and Austin may have the best floors, while Thomas and Meredith have better ceilings. Any thoughts?
  10. Ok, fair enough. It's probably nothing but there's an easy pivot to Ertz for $100 more, so I may split up my Thursday entries out of an abundance of caution.
  11. Where do you see this on Rudolph? Only thing I see is that he returned today (and was out yesterday due to his wife giving birth rather than true injury)
  12. I realized that Hoyer's placement on the "average" for Value/H-Value etc. is due to Maurile having him projected for 7.8 points (currently less than Cutler). Dodds and Bloom have him at 16 and 17 and Cutler at zero. There's no way he plays, right? Latest per Roto is that he missed practice and is "day to day".... so makes me some what nervous for a Thursday slate.
  13. Current Thurs LU for cash: Hoyer DJohnson / McKinnon ABrown / Cooper / Sanders Rudolph / Crosby / Vikes
  14. I'm not counting on a let-down for Wentz as he's got a nice matchup and is coming off a bye. But had not considered the impact Ertz's return could have. Thought that might be a problem since they generally occupy the same interior of the field, but Week 1 against CLE Ertz had 6/58 and JMatt 7/114/1.
