  1. Thanks for your help. Ryan CMC & Cook Hop & ARob Njoku Samuels if Connor is out, DWill otherwise (and of course if Ware is out). If both get a full share I prefer Samuels. Browns Good luck!
  2. 0.5 PPR. Bonuses for 100+ rushing/receiving, 300+ passing, 50+ TDs. Pick 2 RB, 1 WR, and 2 FLEX you think have the most upside (projected to lose): RBs: James White, McGuire, Ware, L Miller, Gus, Kelly, Ballage, Zenner, J Adams WRs: Golladay, Robbie Anderson, Lockett Thanks, and please leave a link so I can return the favor!
  3. 0.5 PPR. Bonuses for 100+ rushing/receiving, 300+ passing, 50+ TDs. Need upside—I’m projected to lose. Luck Miller, White AB, Gordon Gronk JWilson, Anderson CHI D BENCH: Lamar, Lockett, Golladay, Gus, McGuire. Falcons’ D is also available. Should I move any bench players to my starting roster? Worried about Golladay with Stafford injury/White blanketing him. McGuire may be a volume flex play. Also hesitant to bench the #1 D for the Falcons. Thanks for all you do, Sig!
  4. 0.5 PPR, bonuses for 100+ rushing/receiving, 300+ passing, 50+ TDs. I need upside here...projected to lose this week. Here’s my lineup with bench below: Luck Miller, JWhite AB, JGordon Gronk JWilson, RAnderson CHI D BENCH: Lockett, Golladay, Gus, McGuire —————————————————————————— FBG says to start Golladay and Lockett in my flex over Wilson and Anderson. I hesitate with Golladay since he’s gonna be blanketed by White in Buffalo. Lockett is a maybe, especially if Baldwin is out again. But his volume is normally pretty low. I’m also unsure about my bench RBs. Gus looks like he’s splitting time with Dixon, but the matchup is nice. McGuire has a tougher matchup, but he’s also a pass catcher and might be featured more. ATL D is also on waivers. They have a great matchup vs Arizona, but do I dare bench the #1 FF defense? Really stuck in who to start. Let me know who you think could help me pull the upset. Thanks, and please leave a link so I can return the favor!
  5. 0.5 PPR, bonuses for 100+ yds rushing/receiving, 50+ yd TDs. Luck Miller, Wilson AB, Golladay Gronk White, Ware CHI D —————————————— Saints’ D is on waivers (would have to drop Hunt). Bench options include Gus, JGordon, Callaway, Brate. Make any moves or stay put? Thanks, Sig!
  6. 0.5 PPR, bonuses for 100+ yds rushing/receiving, 300+ yds passing, 50+ yd TDs. Starters in BOLD, FAs in parenthesis: My Team: QB--Luck (L Jackson) RB--Miller, Ware, Edwards, Kelly (Ridley, Montgomery, Burkhead) WR--AB, Galloway, Gordon, Lockett, Callaway, Coutee (Gallup) TE--Gronk, Brate (Uzomah, Herndon, Andrews) FLEX--J White, J Wilson DST--CHI (New Orleans) His Team: QB--Rodgers RB--Barkley, Coleman WR--Sanders, Woods TE--Ian Thomas FLEX--Crowell, Howard DST--LAC ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ Just wondering if I should make any changes to my starting roster, or play keep away and pick up some FAs. I have one bench spot open. Lamar Jackson is a potential keep away pickup, but I'm not sure he'll keep the job if Flacco gets healthy enough to play. Also considering playing the Saints over the Bears this week. Let me know what you'd do, if anything. Thanks, and please leave a link so I can return the favor!
  7. This is tougher than it looks at first glance. I agree with Ekeler--I think he's a definite start this week. As for your 2nd RB...my inital thought was AP. Despite the O Line issues he's still capable of goal line work, or busting a big run or screen pass. But the line is really decimated, so that gives me a little pause. I don't trust the Raiders offense any more than I do the Washington O Line, and Richard is not as capable as AP of creating something on his own. So IMO, AP>Richard this week. That leaves Ware. Regardless of the game script, Reid gets Ware involved in almost every 3rd down and 2 minute drill. Plus he gets garbage time touches to spell Hunt. The problem is, he's only getting 3 or so carries per game. You have to rely on his receiving to have any value, and with the other receiving options on that team I have trouble trusting him. I think I'd still go with AP, with Ware being a close second. If you are dead set against AP I understand and I don't think playing Ware over him is as crazy as it might sound. I just think AP will do more since he'll get more volume than Ware. Good luck! Please see mine if you have a minute: https://forums.footballguys.com/forum/topic/772232-which-wrs-for-fitzmagic-whir/
  8. I'd also lean MVS, even before you mentioned the option of keeping him. The Packers are going to throw, throw, throw. If the Cowboys are smart (questionable) they will run their offense through Zeke. I know Cooper is more physically gifted than Dez, but Dak really hasn't had a fantasy-relevant WR his entire career. Rodgers can support two, sometimes three, fantasy-relevant WRs at a time. That's why I'd rather have MVS. Good luck, and please see mine if you have a minute: https://forums.footballguys.com/forum/topic/772232-which-wrs-for-fitzmagic-whir/
  9. Then yeah I’d make that deal. Hope it works out for you!
  10. Assuming you start 2 RBs? Any Flex spots? I feel Michel will be a consistent RB2 once he’s back. Is AJ still expected to miss 2 games? I’d hate to trade for essentially AB/Jones for what you’re giving up. But if you can only play 2 RBs and Green seems likely to return in time for the playoffs, I’d do the deal. Good luck! Please see mine if you have a minute: https://forums.footballguys.com/forum/topic/772232-which-wrs-for-fitzmagic-whir/
  11. I would. Bell cow RB are golden, and Zeke is just that. Dallas can’t screw up their gameplan the rest of the season, can they? They’ve got to feature Zeke more. The Giants try to get OBJ touches but Eli just doesn’t have it. Good luck! Please see mine if you have a minute: https://forums.footballguys.com/forum/topic/772232-which-wrs-for-fitzmagic-whir/
  12. I agree with the others. Allen>Bell this year, and looking at how the Steelers develop RBs (DeAngelo, Conner) I’m questioning how good Bell will be once he leaves Pittsburgh. Good luck!

  13. (12 team 0.5 PPR redraft. Start QB, RB/RB, WR/WR, TE, FLEX/FLEX. Basic scoring with bonuses for 100+ yds rushing/receiving, 300+ yds passing, 50+ yd TDs.) My Team: Luck, Fitz Hunt, White, Miller, Ito, Malcolm Brown, McGuire, Ware, CJA AB, Golladay, Gordon, Lockett, Coutee Gronk, Olsen His Team: Dalton, Smith Kamara, Michel, A Jones, Lewis, Evans, Fitzgerald, Cooper, Davis, Kirk, DJ Moore, Sutton, Beasley, D Moore Kelce --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- He reached out to me saying he wants Fitzpatrick. I thought I might be able to get a couple WRs in exchange...maybe Fitzgerald/Sutton? Let me know what would be reasonable to ask for. Thanks, and please leave a link so I can return the favor!
  14. 12 team 0.5 PPR redraft. Basic scoring with bonuses for 100+ yds rushing/receiving, 300+ yds passing, and 50+ yd TDs. Start QB, RB/RB. WR/WR. TE, FLEX/FLEX My Team: Winston, Luck Hunt, Ingram, White, Miller, Ito, Morris KAllen, Golladay, Lockett, Coutee ,Gordon, TTaylor Gronk, Olsen His Team: Brady Zeke, Yeldon, Kerryon, Buck Diggs, JuJu, Ridley, Funchess, Ginn, Parker, Washington Graham ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ I'm thinking Olsen/Lockett for Graham/Kerryon. He's 2-4 and there are no good TEs on waivers in our league. I was planning on using Olsen as a flex, but Graham would be just as serviceable IMO. I thought he might like a WR who's scored a TD in all but one game this season and a TE who can start for him this week and beyond. I think Kerryon will shine soon and I'd like to get him before that happens. Is this a good offer? Am I too high on Kerryon? Let me know what you think. Thanks, and please leave a link so I can return the favor!
  15. 12 team 0.5 PPR redraft. Bonuses for 100+ yds rushing/receiving, 300+ yds passing, 50+ yd TDs. Start QB, RB/RB, WR/WR, TE, FLEX/FLEX My team: Luck, Winston Hunt, Ingram, Miller, White, Morris KAllen, Golladay, Lockett, Gordon, Coutee, Stills, TTaylor Gronk, Olsen ——————————————————— The Ajayi owner will need some RB help. His other RBs are Collins, Chubb, Sproles, Gallman, Barber. He’s got Michael Thomas, AJ Green, as well as Watkins, DJax, Jordy, Godwin. His TEs are Engram and Swaim. I’d like to make a run for Thomas or Green...just not sure what to offer. Allen/Miller? Lockett/Ingram? I don’t want to deplete my RB corps, but I could part with one if it’s not giving up too much. Let me know what you think. Thanks, and please leave a link so I can return the favor!
  16. 12 team 0.5 PPR redraft. Bonuses for 100+ yds rushing/receiving, 300+ yds passing, 50+ yd TDs. Start QB, RB/RB, WR/WR, TE, FLEX/FLEX My Team (2-2): Luck, Winston Hunt, Ingram, JWhite, Miller, Morris, RJones KAllen, Golladay, Lockett, Gordon, Stills, Taywan Taylor, Coutee Gronk, Olsen His Team (2-2): Watson, Wentz Gurley, Breida, Henry, Mack Julio, Jeffery, Demaryius, ARob, Mike Williams, Goodwin, Doctson, Ross Kittle, ASJ -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- I'd like some TE insurance, as the position is scarce on waivers. Thinking of offering Morris/Lockett for Kittle. Thought I could play up the Breida handcuff angle with Breida's shoulder injury, and Lockett is better than all but 2 of his WRs (maybe even better than Jeffery). Think it's a fair offer? Or do you see a better option? Thanks, and please leave a link so I can return the favor!
  17. 12 team 0.5 PPR redraft. bonuses for 100+ rushing/receiving yds, 300+ passing yds, 50+ yd TDs. Start QB, RB/RB, WR/WR, TE, FLEX/FLEX My team: Luck, Winston Hunt, Miller, Ingram, JWhite, Morris, Kelly KAllen, Stills, JGordon, Golladay, Crowder, Lockett, TSmith (NO) Gronk His team: Big Ben, Mayfield Bell, Mixon, McCoy, Montgomery, Penny, Hines, Ekeler, Richard Hogan, Sanu, Shepard, Dez, Richardson Cook, Watson ----------------------------------------------- This guy has shot down every trade offer I've ever sent his way, and I don't think he's accepted more than one or two trades--ever. But he is hurting at RB and WR, and I have some depth at both. I know Bell is a risk, but if/when he shows up he's an elite option. I could try to weather the storm and roll with less until he suits up. Should I make an offer? If so, who? Hunt straight up? Or Ingram/Stills? Miller/Gordon? Let me know if you think I should make an offer, and please list what you think would be fair. Thanks, and please leave a link so I can return the favor!
  18. 12 team 0.5 PPR redraft. Basic scoring with bonuses for 100+ yds rushing/receiving, 300+ yds passing, and 50+ yd TDs. Luck Hunt, Miller Allen, Stills Gronk Crowder, ??? My bench options are James White, Golladay, Lockett, Josh Gordon. FBG recommends White based on some formula I don't really understand. If Baldwin is limited I'd lean Lockett but I don't know if that's the case yet. Similarly, I think I'd like to see Gordon in action before I start him. I'd like to start the season with a W, and I'm favored to win. So play it safe with White? Or go with one of the WRs? Thanks, and please leave a link so I can return the favor!
  19. Thanks for your help... I love that you got Zeke at #4, and I agree that Green > the RBs at that point in time. I also think Baldwin has a nice year and is one of the best WR2s out there (really a WR1A in my opinion). Sticking with WRs, I LOVE your depth with Goodwin, Allison, and especially Crowder. I could see any of them--especially Crowder--performing as a WR2. I think with getting your RB2 in the 4th round, it's tough to do better than Henry. I know you have to worry about Lewis a bit but Henry should be the touch leader in that backfield. With standard scoring the catches going Lewis' way won't hurt you as much. The rest are question marks but you know if Burkhead performs like last year you're all set. If not, Michel is solid insurance. Morris seems to have plenty of tread left and would skyrocket in value if either Niner RB misses time. TE is a gamble, but after the top tier that's really the case for anyone left. I like that Kittle has a higher ceiling than most. If he doesn't hit for you there should be streaming options available. I realize Ben's road splits have been down but I still think he's a great QB1. He's healthier than he's been in years and although he may be more up & down that others in his range I think you'll be glad you have him. Drafting is just one aspect of a successful season. I think you have the start of a very competitive team. Be watchful for FA additions, and I'd sell high if a depth RB starts hot...pair him with any of Baldwin/Goodwin/Crowder (depending on how they're playing) or Kittle and upgrade at RB or TE. Good luck!
  20. 12 team 0.5 PPR redraft. 100+ rushing/receiving bonus, 300+ passing bonus, 50+ yd TD bonus. Start QB, RB/RB, WR/WR, TE, FLEX/FLEX QB: Luck, Winston RB: Hunt, Miller, Ingram, White, Clement, Allen WR: K Allen, Crowder, Gordon, Stills, Lockett, Golladay, Sutton TE: Gronk Available FAs: Taywan Taylor Ekeler Alfred Morris Tre’Quan Smith Jeremy Hill Chase Edmonds John Kelly Do you like any of these guys over some of my bench depth? Looking for high ceiling lottery tickets. Thanks, and please leave a link so I can return the favor!
  21. Thanks for your help. Im guessing you had a lower pick in the 1st? Just saying that since it’s a 10-team league and you weren’t able to come away with any RB higher than Howard. Not saying he’s bad, and I like Collins and Ingram a lot this year. The other RBs will need some dust to settle in their backfields before I could trust them, but they all have nice upside. Looks like you went Hopkins/OBJ 1 & 2. Tough to find a better WR combo and I’d imagine you’d have an advantage each week there. I love the depth and could see a good problem of trying to figure out which guys to flex each week since I think they’ll all put up numbers. I actually like the idea of the Watson/Hopkins combo. Lots of double points there. Burton looks like he’s going to live up to the hype. I think you’ll be glad you got him. Wilkins or Miller would be the guy I’d drop to grab your defense. If you’re looking to trade for an upgrade at RB, I’d try to package Jones or Crowder with Howard or Collins. Not sure how trade-friendly your league is, but for a WR needy team you might be able to pry away a nice RB1. May not need to if your guys reach/exceed potential. Good luck!
  22. 12 team 0.5 PPR redraft. QB, RB/RB, WR/WR, TE, FLEX/FLEX, DST, K. Bonuses for 100 yds rushing/receiving, 300 yds passing, 50+ yd TDs. Picked from the 9th slot. QB: Luck, Winston RB: Hunt, Miller, Ingram, White, Clement, J Kelly WR: Allen, Crowder, Gordon, Lockett, Golladay, Stills TE: Gronk, Ebron ----------------------------------------------------------------------------- Got sniped multiple times in the mid rounds on RBs I was targeting. I've always taken risks, and Luck/Gordon are definitely in that category. Notable FAs (I'd have to drop someone to pick these up): QB: Rivers, Dalton, Dak RB: Dixon, Ekeler, Ballage WR: Enunwa, Coutee, Tyrell Williams, Zay Jones, Grant, Sutton, Geronimo Should I look to grab a FA by dropping someone? Or package Clement/WR to the Ajayi owner (he has Collins, Barber, Chubb) or Kelly/WR to the Gurley owner (he has Henry, Mack, Breida) for an upgrade at RB? Or just stay put? Thanks, and please leave a link so I can return the favor!
  23. OK, after seeing several of you ask if there were any later-round options I added Rex Burkhead (Round 12). I didn't list him at first because I just don't trust New England's RB situation. But he's up there now.
  24. Thanks for your help. My initial thought was to keep DJ and Watson. I think DJ will be back to full speed and even when the Cardinals were bad, he was a stud. Since all TDs are worth 6 pts, that raises the value of QBs. I don't know if Watson will return to his pre-injury form, but he's still going to be a very good fantasy QB. With your pick order situation, I agree that if you land a top pick to pass on keeping DJ (you might even draft him straight up), and look at another late-round option as a keeper. Out of the names you listed, I see Gordon as having the most upside. I don't know if any of those guys will hit their ceiling (both RBs have murky situations and Gordon is an off-field risk), but you're playing with house money with that late of a pick. Good luck!
  25. 12 team redraft, 0.5 PPR. Basic scoring with bonuses for 100+ yd rushing/receiving, 300+ yd passing, and 50+ yd TDs. Start QB, RB, RB, WR, WR, TE, FLEX, FLEX, DST, K. ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------- I can keep 2 of the following. I don't know draft order yet. I know most stud WRs will be available (possible exceptions are Nuk and Green), and most RBs will be there (Gurley, Kamara, and Fournette probably won't). EDIT: Burkhead (Round 12) I didn't list him at first since I never trust NE's backfield, but since many of you requested any later round options I thought I'd mention him. Hunt (Round 5) McCaffrey (Round 3) Gronk (Round 2) I see Hunt as a no-brainer, but do any Chief insiders know about Spencer Ware? He was in line to be the guy last year before he got hurt. Could he cut into Hunt's touches? As for the other two, I guess it might depend on my draft position. Something around the 1-2 turn might make Gronk a reach, but if I end up picking at the end or Rd 2 then he might be a better keeper. Or I could just target him in Rd 2 and keep McCaffrey as my RB2 for only a 3rd round price. So which 2 should I keep? Thanks, and please leave a link so I can return the favor!
