  1. Gonna try a few LU's with Gausman and a few more with Woodruff. Sale will be the other SP. Even gonna through in a GPP with Hellickson. Philly's offense has been struggling of late & Hellickson did well pitching against them back in April, in Philly. Liking the BOS,TB, MILW & TEX bats.
  2. Hello all - just getting back into baseball the last few weeks, pretty much breaking even. But as I haven't seen this mentioned yet today, thought I'd bring it up: in his career against Madison Bumgarner, Kike Hernandez of the Dodgers is 21 for 42 - yes, that's a .500 average in 42 AB's, including 4 HR's. I stick exclusively to FanDuel, and, at $3,600, I am definitely having some of that, especially given that ownership will be very high on Altuve and the rest of the Astros. Good luck one & all!
  3. In the 'for what it's worth' department ā€¦ā€¦ā€¦ā€¦ Ben Watson/TE & Keith Kirkwood/WR for the Saints will be out. Kirkwood with a calf injury & Watson with appendicitis.
  4. One of the contrarian GPP ideas I'm kicking around is 2 TE's; Kelce/Gronk or Kelce/Everett or Higbee. Definitely a big long shot, but, I'd like to think that Gronkowski will catch another TD sooner or later. KC just might be that opportunity.
  5. Well, I got out a little more than I put in last week, so, guess I'm changing my mind about doing a few LU's this week. One thing I need to remember, which was brought up for the Thanksgiving day slate, is that with a short slate like this, good idea to leave some money on the table.
  6. Not sure I actually like Zeke or Gurley to hit GPP value this week. If I'm going for a +8K RB, I think it will be Kamara. I'm also leaning NE as my DEF.
  7. Unless the Chiefs get their DEF in gear, I can see the Colts upsetting them. Chargers/Pats could go either way. Cowboys/Rams could go either way. Eagles/Saints .................... on paper, this isn't even close. But so much has changed since the Saints blew out the Eagles in week 11. Foles in again for the injured Wentz, Sproles healthy and contributing. Tough call, being an Eagles fan, but, I think their run ends this week, as the Philly defense just won't be able to stop the Saints enough. I think the Eagles put up more than the 7 points they scored in November, but, not gonna be enough. Really looking at a L/U that will allow me to squeeze in Brees/Kamara/Thomas, or, mega-game stack with the Chiefs/Colts. I'd like to give consideration to the Pats, but, outside of Edelman, who would you stack Brady with? Besides, Brady [and for that matter, Gronkowski] just have not been their normal selves of late.
  8. Game-stacking Indy-Houston & the respective passing games killed me; should've used Mack, of course. 5 L/U's - $9 in, $4.99 out. Gonna give this week another go with the Sat-Sun 4 game slate and call it a year. Pitchers & catchers in how many days? šŸ˜€
  9. For me, any L/U starts with Elliott, given his pass catching ability. Am also going to try running a few L/Uā€™s with Lamar Jackson. If he runs, good. If he starts passing, could be good too. Also want to see about squeezing some Indy/Hou game stacks; may need some Carter/CouteeGriffin & Hines to do it.
  10. Wow ......... Cowboys TE B. Jarwin: through 3 quarters, 6 catches - 89 yds - 3 TD's. Who saw that coming?
  11. Davante Adams, Kenny Golladay inactive, A. Brown still a question mark ........
  12. Considering what Foles did to the Texans last week, you could do worse. Going to have slight exposure to him myself.
  13. Cash L/U: 137.4 on the optimizer. QB/ Jackson, RB/ Barkley - J. Williams, WR/ Edelman - R. Anderson - Golladay, TE/ Kelce, FLEX/ Freeman, DEF/ Bills. Problem is, Golladay is listed as 'questionable'. May have to scramble if he can't go.
  14. I can see a Cousins - Thielen/Rudolph/Diggs stack this week, CHI defense not withstanding. They lose, they're out, if the Eagles win. They get behind at all, Cousin's gonna sling it baby! Same with Pittsburgh & Philly, just off the top of my head. RB & especially TE are going to be my headaches this week. I think Ertz had the week he did in part because they were trying to get him a 'catches by TE' record. But I faded him myself thinking he wouldn't hit GPP value with the QB change. Having said that, there are definitely teams with nothing to play for, but, there are players on those teams that do have something to play for going forward; a job! Watch the injury reports and keep an eye out for guys that have been riding the pine who may get an opportunity. One I have my eyes on right now is Brian Hill, RB - ATL. Coleman is hurt and if he doesn't play Sunday, Hill did pretty well in his absence after he left this past Sunday.
  15. Liking the Jets DEF a lot this week at 3200. Rodgers says he's still gonna play and try to be the leader; just not sure that the rest of the team will follow his lead. With Jones now on IR, not gonna be much of a running game - the defense can key on Rodgers and Adams.
