Bought into the whole "ZOMG the 49ers are starting a 3rd-string UDFA rookie at QB" last night.

Picked up the OAK D and started Seth Roberts over Kittle, then watched that D go out and make the rookie look like mid-career Joe Montana. :wall:

LeVeon killed at least 3 teams.  If he had come back week 8, maybe salvage 2.  But no.  Hate losing your 1st Round pick week 1.  Like losing David Johnson last year. Doh!

I don't know where this belongs, but I still have to pick 2 RBs and 2 WR this week on 1 team.  Looking at fantasypros, the RBs I have for those slots are ranked 14, 15, 16 and 17.  The WRs I have for those slots are ranked 29, 30, 31, 32.

Guess I'll get the dartboard out.

In one league, After the 1:00 games I was projected to win by about 40 points.  My opponent had Kamara and M. Thomas and now I'm projected to lose by about 10 points.  In my other league I had a comfortable 25 point lead with Edelman against his J. White.  White just got 13 in the first 3 minutes of the game.   :loco:

It’s possible I outsmarted myself starting Devante Parker over Tevin Coleman

I got high score for the year (so far) thanks to Gordon and MVS! That's $10 for high of the week and a possible $50 for season high!

Also won by 1.1 in my other league. Guy had Gostkowski and I had Adams! Hopefully no stat corrections.

Feeling good right now.

and now a venting post, as i actually made all the right decisions in this must-win game, but still will lose to Thomas-Kamara-Coleman unless Zeke can go for like 180 yds/3 TD.  story of this team this year.  Doing great in 2 other leagues and honestly feel like I haven't made many mistakes here, but have the most points against coming into the week and now play the highest-scoring team of the week...

Yesterday summed up how strange FF is sometimes...or shows that I just drafted good depth.

All year my team has been projected to score big point...and until the past few weeks (and even one of those weeks) feel short.  Yesterday I was projected for a low total with 4 starters on bye (OBJ, Boyd, Mack, and DJ).  And I outscoted my projections by 35 points and that was with benching skittle because of the qb situation.

Nice to have Olsen, MVS, and Ridley step up. Collins Lindsay and Baldwin do just enough...oh and yeah, helps having the Bears against J Peterman and the Bills.

Sometimes it's just not your year.

I play doubleheaders.  I went up against Mahomes, Hunt, McCaffrey, and M Thomas in one, and Brees, M Gordon, J Gordon, Kelce and Hopkins in the other.  The two highest scoring teams this week.  :wall:

Played against Rodgers, Gurley & Gronk this week. I didn't expect to win and thought Gronk would be playing. However, he didn't play...Rodgers didn't have a spectacular week, neither did Gurley. However, the guy also had...

BEARS DEFENSE

Great...would've definitely won had it not been for those 2 defensive TDs. Thanks Bills! ?

Between Byes and injuries had to pick a couple WRs off FA and got Humphries (28.9 points) and Curtis Samuel (19.8) and also started Cooper. Sometimes it is nice to be lucky.

FBG players Championship, co-owning it with a friend...high scorer but can’t win a week, looks like we will have another high scoring week thanks to tyreek and Chubb but a loss after our opponent got higher then usual scores from his guys. Had Tevin Coleman and O.J. Howard on the bench last week. This week it was Austin Hooper, Allen Robinson and Aaron Jones on the bench. Hopefully come playoffs we can pick the right guys.

I have only lost two games all year.  Normally, I would consider this a good season.  Except that those losses came against the 2 worst teams in my league with their best players out.  ???

Happened again this week.  Went up against Big Ben, Gurley, A Jones, and D Adams.  High scorer again.   

At least I won the other half of my doubleheader.

Not sure I have ever seen this before. Lost three games in a row by 0.2, 0.7, and 0.8 points. The even sadder part is that I had guys suffer early in-game injuries in all of them. Some years things just don't work out.

8-2 in one league 1rst place.

My 2 losses, to the 5th place 5-5 team that I am beating by 262 total points in a low scoring league.  If I played him every week I would be 8-2,  the only two weeks I have played him is when he would of won.

8-2 in my home league.

Just made 2 trades in a 12 team standard 3 keeper league, the pleyers I moved Bell(Keeper Value), P. Barber, S Watkins, A Peterson, 1st rnd pick, 3 rnd pick and got back Julio Jones, Marc Ingram, Jordan Howard, Phillip Lindsay and a 4th and 7th.  My team now looks mathcup proof and has a good playoff schudule

QB - Mahomes, Rivers, Jackson

RB - Hunt, Chubb, Ingram, Howard, Lindsay

WR - Jones, Allen, Cooks, Sutton

TE - Gronk, Howard

The only thing worse than facing players from your favorite team in FF is having them put up big points but the team loses. Looking at you here, Aaron Jones.

And of course, CMC and Julio are doing next to nothing today.

And Ben Watson has had TWO 0-point games this season - both when I started him :wall: . Landry, Amendola and Kittle all off this week so I had to hope for *something* from him :sadbanana:

Everything went wrong

  • Picked up Mariota instead of Lamar Jackson
  • Started Mariota over Cousins
  • Dropped DJ Moore to pick up Jalen Richard
  • Benched TQ Smith over Sutton and Tate
  • Chargers DST went nowhere
  • Looking at dropping from #2 to #5. 

Team definitely making the playoffs but glaring holes at QB and WR will probably mean I need to get lucky come playoff time.

Have DeShaun Watson in 2 leagues - one league I have no backup so no excuses for starting him; but the other league I started him over Ben Roethlisberger  based on a prime matchup with Redskins - and Roeth facing a stout Jags D.  That decision looked great through about 3 quarters of the Pit/Jax game.....now it looks stupid - cost me 16 points and an almost certain loss barring a game for the ages from Tyreek Hill and Greg Zeurlein.

Started (as I have every  week he's played) Carson Wentz

0.84 points

Started Dalvin Cook (drafted as my RB1, currently RB66 in PPR)

2.00 points

Playing the #1 seed and winning by 57+ points - will end up with a 45 or so point margin after his K plays tonight

T.Y. Hilton (WR1)
AB (WR7)
Lindsay (RB3)
Kerryon (RB12)
Lutz (K3)
Houston (DST3)

After starting 0-2, solidly in third place at 7-4.

35.5 points down (non-PPR) with Goff, Hill and Butker up against his Mahomes.  Need Hill to get a couple rushing TDs.

Guy I'm tied with in the division is down 26 with Gurley YTP. If I can't win my game it'd be nice if Gurley has a quiet night too. He's been over 26 5 times and under 5 times YTD.

So in the third round of this year's draft, I'm determined to draft a WR, and my choices are:
Mike Evans
Larry Fizgerald
Tyreek Hill
Stefon Diggs
Adam Thielen

I chose Diggs and was kicking myself all year for not taking Thielen (I was down on Evans so passed on him, and the real choice for me was Diggs or Thielen, who were basically tied on my board).  This week my opponent was the Thielen owner.  In our scoring system Diggs out scored Thielen 33.6 - 15.6.  Now I'm glad I took Diggs!

My magical season continues. I was down 13 with Cooks and Butker left but facing Gurley. No shot right? Took the lead on Cooks second last catch and now I'm 11-0!

Non-PPR league. In past years, 90 points was usually good for a win, though that's crept up a bit this year.

My opponent rode Brees, Hilton and Kirk to put up 100.63. Pretty good showing, right?

I could have started three players and left the other six spots empty, and I would have lost to him by three points. Mahomes, Hill and Barkley combined for 97 and change. Overall, I had 169.36.  I think I may have just set the league's all-time scoring record. Oh, and my team is 10-1 (only loss came in a week where I had the second highest score) and I've but wrapped up the regular season title (which wins me some money).

Similar boat - down 25 heading into MNF - facing Gurley and Butker.  I had Hunt, Hill and Zeurlein.  So glad Gurley decided to take a night off heading into his bye.  Other league down 15 facing Hitchens and Brockers - and I had Hill and Zeurlein.  My god is Tyreek Hill fun to watch.

w00t! Thought I was dead when Mahomes got the ball back with a minute left, but I won by 4.  AND Gurley staying out of the EZ gives me a 1-game lead plus tiebreak.

To add insult to injury my opponent was the #1 team and he had Mahomes and Hill. Got a 70 pt beatdown.

I had Mahomes AND Tyreek AND I lost!   Put up 178 points in standard scoring, and got beat by my brother who had Brees, Evans, Thomas, and Barkley and scored 185.  Both scores beat the previous league all-time high score.  I am the Chiefs, scoring 50+ but still losing the matchup 😡

But, it's my first loss of the year, I'm still in first and have already secured a bye 😁

Wow, that's a bad beat up top. Standard scoring, finished second in the league all-time with 161. Had Ingram, Barkley, Goff, Golladay, Rosas, IND D, Boyd, and Baldwin and Olsen. All in all, that was nice. We're a middling group, though probably playoff-bound.

your right.  should always have something in to reward total points for a playoff spot.  always

Total points is what we always coveted and got 40% of the pot. H2h is a joke.

I pick up Heuerman because Pitt is so bad defending the TE and what does Keenum do. Just throw everything to LaCrosse. I give up on the TE position this year. Total wasteland.

Some sort of cosmic justice....I am a first place team playing a 11th place team that has not set their lineup since Week 9 and they left Saquon Barkley and Keenan Allen on the bench, but thanks to Cousins, Lindsay and Diggs I trail by 31.5 with Watson and Hopkins remaining.  On the bright side if he had set his lineup I would have NO chance - now there is at least a chance albeit a small one.

I have had a terrible team record this year first in a long long time- hampered by injury right from the start and inconsistent performance where you have no trust in the lineup. The only real bright spot (and he did have a couple of tough weeks) was Alvin Kamara. Well this week I had one of my highest point performances (A little too late for a playoff push) and Alvin Kamara was the lowest point getter. It's been a real weird year.

Start: 1 QB, 3 RB, 3 WR, 1 TE, 1 PK, 1 D.

Scoring: 1 PPR, 6 per pass TD, -2 per INT. No additional bonuses. 

 

Ryan, CMC, Barkley, Chubb, Juju, Lockett, Cooper, Gronk, Raiders, Badgley (Dak and Ebron on my bench)
