  1. Singletary hurt? Just saw it pop up on while browsing
  2. Kittle might see my bench soon if Andrews keeps this up
  3. Hello Sig - thanks for giving out your advice and time, much appreciated! Starting QB/RB/WR/2 FLEX/TE/K/DEF, NO PPR Guess I got to stick with my "under-achievers" from week 1, Chubb and Adams. So that leaves: QB - Rivers or Stafford? FLEX (need 2 from this list) - Damian Williams, James White, Tyler Boyd, John Brown, Micky Gallup, David Montgomery DEF - stick with Seahawks or pick up one of 49ers, Titans or Packers? Thanks!!!
  4. Ugh. I drafted this dude mid-4th in a 12 team redraft on Friday night and thought I got a bit of a bargain, not looking so much like that now. Probably very few coaches know McCoy better than Reid and what he brings to a team. Smelling like a 50/50 split probably which stinks for both really, guess we'll have to wait and see. Why couldn't the stupid Texans have signed McCoy, surely their need was greater 😡
  5. All excellent points and I fully agree, big year coming. That is, If you can handle the up and downs with the interceptions and mistakes, he's a perfect later round QB. Don't know what his ADP is but he should be relatively cheap at auction compared to the likes of Watson and Brees. I do see a lot of games of the type 450/3/3 like last year unless huge improvements have been made in his decision making and accuracy but he has a cannon arm and tons of weapons.
  6. Missed calls will grab the headlines I guess. But that Ram oline was unbelievable most of the game. The amount of protection they gave Goff was something else.
  7. Never would have thought back in September, that if I made my SB, my starting lineup would contain only 2 players I actually drafted. I suppose this probably happens a lot but still seems weird to me. Mayfield, Chubb, Dam.Williams, Kittle, Fairbairn (plus Conner), all FA or waiver pickups. Only T.Hill and M.Thomas drafted, DJ on my bench also. I definitely learned this year to ignore "names". Got very lucky in the playoffs, avoiding the 1 seed in week 15 and facing the team with Rivers, Gurley, Adams and Kelce in the SB, all 4 players were dominant all year and only one showed up this week.
  8. Part of my winning team, averaged 20 in standard over the two games, lucky to pick him up after losing Ware. Miles better than DJ, my first rounder.
  9. This is why I wouldn't bench him for most of the names in this thread. I can vividly recall going against him in my superbowl 3-4 years ago, Chargers were playing Niners. He had done virtually nothing going into the 4th and ended up with over 30 points. Apart from Mahomes and one or two others, i'd start him. I have him on quite a few of my teams, I think I benched him for Luck in one but that's about it and i'm still debating that one.
  10. Same decision, DW or DJ to go with Chubb. Never thought back in September i'd be considering benching my first rounder for a third string KC RB.
  11. For the big one, standard scoring: Winston or Mayfield (lean Mayfield) Need 2 from the following to go with Hill and Thomas: DJ, Chubb, Conner (if he plays), Ware (if he starts) or Damien Williams (if Ware doesn't start). Would you start any of these over Hill or Thomas? I only ask as Thomas has been bad lately. DEF - Colts or Broncos?
  12. Start QB/RB/WR/2 Flex/TE/K/DEF - Standard scoring QB - a complete Carousel of Wentz or whomever is starting for TB but using Mayfield for week 17 RB - DJ, Conner, Chubb, Ware/Dam.Williams WR - T Hill, M Thomas TE - Kittle K - Fairbairn DEF - Broncos
  13. Another absolute dud. They don't lean on this guy like, say, Adams in GB, NO just have too many ways to win. MT hasn't had a double digit week in standard since week 11. Not good, can't bench him but hardly inspires confidence for FF bowl week.
  14. I was starting Chubb all week but now i'm wavering a bit. I can still plug DJ in tomorrow if the news is not positive on Conner.
