lots of good passing matchups, don't love the running matchups. 

probably going to go cheap at RB and pay up elsewhere. 

more analysis later.

But we seem to be getting to the point were the rbs are getting a lot of touches - Maybe as the weather gets worse?  I looked quick this morning and I think it was 15+ rbs that had over 20 touches this weekend.  Just wondering if we might have to look past the matchups a tad.

Placeholders I am tinkering with

1. Brees - Collins/Drake - Brown/Goodwin/Westbrook - Walker - Lutz - Bal

2. Brady - Bell/Collins - Thielen/Goodwin/Westbrook - Olson - Lambo - Bal

3. Foles - Collins/Drake - Brown/Thomas/Westbrook - Gronk - Lambo - NO

 

#2... Could go Bell/Drake combo also...Brady has had 2 poor weeks in a row.  May be a risk, but I think he just has to break out of that funk.  Olson may also be too risky for cash.  Lots of playing time without production last week and GB has not given up a whole lot to TEs...maybe pivot to Seals-Jones or Ben Watson as a cheap options as Washington and Cleveland have been generous to TEs.  But Watson left a bad taste in my mouth after posting the zero last week in my primetime LU  :hot:

#3...I don't mind paying down at QB.   There are a few options down there.  Flacco could have a nice week, but I seem to be leaning towards using Collins, so Flacco is not likely for me.  Gabbert, Kizer, even Cutler might be in play.  But two guys at minimum price could offer the best value...Foles and Petty.  Both of these guys have some weapons around them to work with, but that NYG match up for Foles looks pretty juicy and allows for some studs in the LU.  Not sure about the Gronk play in this LU...may drop down there and go for a higher end RB instead.

What the?!?    FanDuel is showing an entirely different type of contest!

$60,000 salary cap

Lineup:  QB  RB  RB  WR  WR  TE  FLEX  SUPERFLEX

Whoa!  Odd time to be rolling out something so different.

Is anyone else seeing this?  Am I in a secret focus group? :tinfoilhat:

EDIT TO ADD:  Wow, I've dreamed of dumping kickers and defense for weeks!  Now's my chance, right?

Interesting.  They sucked me in for a couple bucks.  Looks like they adjusted a couple qb salaries though - ie Foles.

I love the SUPER flex format.  It looks fun.  I am going to throw a few bucks at it.

So for that format and 1/2 pt ppr, it's basically 2qb, 3rb, 2wr, 1te, and look to stack your and, right? 

That is the way I did it.  I did little, to no research, for it.  Just went with something fun and easy and very chalky.  I need to do something to upgrade my second WR, but otherwise I don't feel horrible about the lineup.

Brady-Ben-Collins-Drake-Barber-Brown-T Benj-Gronk.

They aren't big gpps, so you probably don't have to get too weird.  That NE/Pitts game is probably a good one to start with.  I wondered if I could get Rex/Bell/Gronk/Brown in there and do different stacks with cheaper Qbs  and WRs around them.  Might play with that idea more later.

That format is quite different.  My first attempt:

Flacco/Bortles, Collins/Drake/LMurray, ABrown/MThomas, Gronk

Debating things like MThomas to Dez which gets Bortles to Rivers.  Flacco-Collins stack seems workable against my Browns.

I like the idea of stacking the NE/PIT game, but using a different QB to stack with to save some money.  I didn't even do the GPPs.  I just jumped into a 3-man & 5-man tournament.

Thurs-Mon slate is looking good for a TNF fade. 

Make sure your placeholders don't include scrubs from the Saturday games if you don't plan on updating until Sunday (I just removed Santos from mine, potentially devastating).

Gotcha.  I put in 2 $1 gpp placeholders, but it wasn't a big contest - 1200 entries or so?

Don't know why I never look at the 3 - 20 man contests.

It is hard, but I came up with:  Game stack with AB/Bell/Gronk/Burkhead and then got in Kizer+Coleman and Bortles+Westbrook.  Probably not a great way to go with that.  

ETA:  here is a placeholder for my fade of the NE/Pitt game (I will have a lot of that game in main slate, so I figured I would be silly and fade it somewhere):

Jimmy G/Goodwin, Wilson/Baldwin,Kamara, Freeman, L.Murray, Walker

NBA ticket contests were only 20-30% full.  Wish I had gotten more in play.

I need to start paying more attention to situations like this.  I do not usually check the ticket payback contests.

I love the 3-, 5-, & 10- man contests.  I think it is a great way to use a cash lineup and make a little more than just doubling up.

Super flex lineup update:  Jimmy G- Kizer-Drake-L Murray-Perine-AB-Julio-Gronk.

No stacks.  Expected high volume RBs.  Murray may split, but I think he is in a great spot this weekend and being undervalued by the experts.  Studs at WR and TE.  I do not love either QB this week, but they fit the price and I am comfortable with them (I think).

Only so much you can pay attention to.  There was prize $ overlay last night.  Only so many things you can enter in a minute.  At times I've seen them fill quick.

I saw the superflex format as well and I am thinking the same thing you guys already mentioned - basically you have to start 2 QBs.

I haven't looked at anything in depth, but I plan to throw a few $1 GPPs at this format and I'll have on Ben/Brady stack - why not?  I sure seems like a shootout is in the works.  Another option might be to have two GPPs entries with the PIT/NE game - find a cheap QB you like and do a Ben/cheap QB and also a Brady/cheap QB entry.  That way you will have exposure to the game with a little diversification thrown in as well.

Qb- big ben

Rb- L.Murray, Ajayi

Wr- A. Brown, Funchess, Woods

TE- Walker

Lambo

Ravens(may go new orleans)

Thoughts?

I love Murray this week. I like your WR. Ravens are one of the top D choices this week. Why Ajayi?

I think under Foles, the eagles run it more.  The Giants gave up a ton of yards to the Dallas running backs last week. Maybe im wrong?

NYG are horrible. No doubt. You could be right about them running more to cover for Foles.

I will likely throw burkhead in a few of my lineups in place of Ajayi

I have a bit of Ajayi as well for those same reasons.  Philly is one of the run heaviest teams in the league, and I would think they would lean a little more on that with Foles.  I have just been trying to think of upside plays at RBs in that price range as pivots off Drake, so I have Ajayi/Rex/L.Murray/K.Williams written down as possibilities

My issue is main slate TE for cash/cash+, after Gronk.  Who do you trust?  I probably will run Ertz only in one GPP with Foles, just in case.  Engram and/or Graham I guess?  James is on my radar as a cheaper option but probably just a GPP or two.

I trust Ertz. The article I read indicated Foles has used the TE in the past, so with this matchup it is a good bet that Ertz will still be a popular target. I also like Walker. 49ers have been giving up TDs to the TE over the last 6 weeks or so. I also think Graham comes back this week and is part of the passing attack. I like Clay, Seals-Jones, Watson, and Njoka as punt/bargain plays to save salary.

I'm trying to figure out the algorithm used to pump up the QB salaries for the Superflex contest.  I assumed it was straight inflation of QBs.

Brady $8000 in main game,  $10,100 in Superflex
Foles is stone min $6000 in the main game, but $7200 in Superflex,

However, DeShone Kizer, remained at $6700 in both formats.

After playing with the new IVC a bit (  Kudos to Maurile Tremblay!!! ) , my impression is some QBs who didn't make consideration in the traditional format are "bubbling up" in Superflex.  examples:  Kizer, Matt Ryan, Keenum

Anyone got a handle on this aspect of the Superflex contests?

Seems like some value is really opening up at RB, beyond the obvious mega chalk Kenyon Drake.

  • With Coleman ruled out for MNF, I think Freeman becomes a must start against the Buccaneers.
  • With Mixon out, Gio Bernard delivered good value last week in a similarly negative game script.  I'm likely to use him in GPPs at least, even with his salary increased to $5900.

    If Fournette scratches, who's the play?  Ivory?  Yeldon?  Bortles and Westbrook?!?

I agree.  Freeman is a great play for the rosters that include Monday. I am out on Gio.  Loved him last week, but I think he gets even less this week and his salary increased.

Despite "liking" Bobcat10's post the other day, I just noticed that my SAT - MON superflex lineup just locked in placeholder Jordan Howard.  No way I wanted to play him, was going to pivot to Freeman.  smh    I'm an idiot

I have been looking at A.Morris on those slates too.  Should be lower owned after last week and the other rb getting tds.

I made the same mistake but luckily the only Saturday guy I quickly threw in was Tyreek Hill on all 10 50/50 lineups I entered.  I don’t deserve this luck. I have Matt Breida sitting at RB that I’m thankful didn’t play on Saturday.

I did one Thu-Mon lineup this week, in multiple contests.  Hunt got 36pt, so it’s off to a good start. Hopefully, the rest of the team does well too.

No mistake, but he only got 7.9pts. I used Allen last night. Feels like am drawing dead in poker, after that start.

0% KC players in my Thurs-Mon gpps.  That's always a fun feeling knowing you missed out on a guy that you probably need to do some damage in gpps before your LUs kick in.

I had a hard time with cash this week, and I feel like it's a bit thin.  I am using Pitts/NE players in cash and a silly gpp, but I am mostly fading them :scared: in gpps because of their prices.  

Current cash:  Brady - Bell/Drake - Thielen/Goodwin/Westbrook - Watson - Gould - Jax

taking Brady and Bell instantly thins out the rest of the LU.  

I did make a gpp with Bell/Brown/Hogan/Gronk.  Not sure I want to post what I had to use in the rest to make that work. :lol:

I am still on 2 cash LUs right now and can't decide.  Maybe I will roll both out.  They are very similar.  I know, I know...one line up washes out the other every time I go multi cash LU.

Foles - Bell/Drake - Brown/Goodwin/Westbrook - Walker - Lutz - NO

Foles - Collins/Drake - Brown/M. Thomas/Westbrook - Gronk - Forbath - NO

I am starting to think this will be a popular route to fit in the high priced NE/Pitts guys.   Grr. I think I liked it better when Pitts wasn't on the main slate.

I'm still struggling with TE.   I keep landing on Greg Olsen.

1pm-only gpp

Newton - Ingram/L. Murray - Thielen/Adams/Funchess - Olsen - Lutz - Saints

I was looking at him earlier in the week and decided to move away...can't possibly be as bad as he was last week with only one target.  GB has been pretty good against TEs except for Brate popping in 2 TDs a couple weeks ago, but those were Brate's only 2 catches...
