  1. Goodwin is a soon to be 28 year old WR who has never had more than 3 TDs in a season. Maybe he has a good year but top 12? Really? If he doesn't have at least 8 TDs, he's going to need 90+/1200+ to get in the top 12. That's tough to see.
  2. Week 2: Looking at Sudfield and Darnold at QB. With Roethlisberger likely out, I'm thinking about an entry with Landry or Rudolph. Probably passing on NE, Was, and GB. At RB, looking at Cannon, Perine or Kelley, and Samuels. At WR, I'm struggling as usual. I like Washington, especially if JuJu is out. Also Gilbert or Hollins from Philly. Struggling with WR3 and flex. At TE, maybe Goedert, Walford, or Hodges, but obviously struggling here as well. Any thoughts?
  3. I played last week and thought it was pretty easy. Maybe I was just lucky though. For the HOF game, it was easy to see that no starters would be playing, yet many people still included them in their lineups. This week should be similar, so I'm going to play again. The starters may get a series or two and probably aren't worth rostering yet. I'm likely going to go with some of the rookie QBs, thinking they may get at least a half. At RB, probably something similar. I have no idea what to do at WR. So many play that it seems like a crapshoot. I used Hurst at TE last week and he played a lot and was targeted in the endzone. I may use him again. I'd love to see a discussion on players here. For info, I read training camp reports last week, since it was only one game. It's a little tougher with a full slate.
  4. Hope you're right on the kickers. Agree on GPP. WRs will likely win. But on doubles, triples, and maybe even quints, it will probably pay more often to have a RB in the flex.
  5. I hope so, but I'm not holding my breath. While kickers weren't a huge deal, I thought they were one of the easiest to get right. I averaged between 11-12 points on my kickers last year. I'm not sure how the flex will turn out but right now, I can't imagine inserting anything other than another RB there (at least for multipiers).
  6. Will they still exist this year? They just released the preseason week 1 games and the "Full Roster" game has replaced the kicker with a flex position. Does anyone know if this is permanent? Or is just an option they are trying with preseason?
  7. I'm going to struggle to get by this week, but would be ok next week. I really thought I had Ginn but somehow, he's not there. Only nine in Super Bowl, but $214. Ryan Succop $5 0.00 Harrison Butker $14 0.00 Steve Hauschka $5 0.00 Josh Lambo $11 0.00 Drew Brees $35 0.00 Alvin Kamara $31 0.00 Michael Thomas $29 0.00 Wil Lutz $13 0.00 Ben Roethlisberger $32 0.00 LeVeon Bell $32 0.00 JuJu Smith-Schuster $19 0.00 Martavis Bryant $10 0.00 Chris Boswell $13 0.00
  8. I took them as a flyer on one of my GPP entries.
  9. Does any site use a DvP that is adjusted or normalized? It seems like every NFL site does it this way but the NBA sites seem to only use raw numbers. FantasyLabs appears to do it (+/-), but you can't see it without a subscription, which is $60 a month.
  10. Write down what you've learned. Bookmark sites you have found. It's amazing how much you'll forget.
  11. Scratching Gurley because he may sit, or at the very least , be pulled early with the other Rams starters. You can't afford to lose your player, especially a high priced one, for even a quarter of the game. I lie choosing players who are projected high against bad defenses vs their position. The bad defense part is generally figured into the projection already but the projections don't account for the extremes. Bad defenses are the ones that give up the extremes (the scores you want in a GPP). For example, Buffalo has been terrible against RBs, especially over the last half of the season. If I'm choosing between 2 RBs projected equally, and one of them is playing Buffalo, I'm taking him. I don't know if there is a most important factor, but touches has to be very high on the list. This week, potential playing time is probably at the top. By 2nd tier I just mean, not the top. There really isn't any demarcation line. Last week I had Cam, Rivers, and Winston (4,5, and 15 by salary). None were great but as a group, they scored better than Wilson, Brady, and Brees (1,2, and 3). For this week, I'll stay away from Brady, Wilson, and Ben.
  12. Goff likely won't play much. Rams have nothing to play for. Scratch Watkins and Gurley for the same reason. Pittsburgh could pull starters if NE is up big vs Jets at the half. The Jacksonville outcome doesn't matter so if Cole is injured at all, he'll likely rest. This is a tough week due to players getting pulled. Karma has given good advice. If you're playing less than $10, I'd stick to the single entries, especially the ones with 4000 entries or less. Yeah, the top prize will be less than $500, but you'll have an easier chance of getting in the top 10 (although it still takes luck to get there). My favorite tournament this year has been the $15 (max 3 entries). I can be level with big boys and still have a shot at a big payoff. It generally has a $4000 top prize yet only has less than 2000 entries. I've played the $7 (5 max) tourney but I have trouble coming up with 5 entries I like. I usually vary my QBs and it's hard to find 5 different QBs. For roster construction, I start with the QB, usually getting a 2nd tier guy against a bad defense (vs QBs). I then add a TE or WR from the same team as the QB. I usually don't stack more than 2 in the smaller tourneys. I next get RBs and unless there is a cheap 2nd stringer promoted to 3 down 1st string duties (like Bernard a few weeks ago), I stick with the big guys (last week was Gurley and Elliott). Again, I look for RBs going against bad RB defenses. From here , I get a defense near the top of Dodds' rankings. Next is TE, if I haven't already filled it. I take Kelce if I can fit him in, Doyle if he's against a bad TE defense, or an injury promotion like Gates (last week). If none of those work, I go cheap. Then, I let the optimizer suggest the rest and pick and choose who I want from there. These last 4 guys is where I get my uniqueness (and the differences in the lineups - other than QB). Hope that helps.
  13. Asinine? This decision was purely on losses. Auburn was in the championship game, they won HTH, and they had a harder SOS. Auburn had more top 10 wins - 2 vs 0 - and more top 25 wins - 3 vs 2 - than Alabama. The only thing Bama was better at was fewer losses, unless you count margin of victory over Mercer. What else do you think went into the decision in choosing Bama over Auburn?
  14. The committee's suggested and approved road map to the final four.
