Sorry for the hold up.  I know not what I am doing.

2.11 - JuJu Smith-Schuster - WR - Pitt

King Sunny Ade - Ma Jaiye Oni - The king of Nigerian Jùjú music

I couldn't find a song to pair with JuJu so I took Beckham instead.

Yeah too simple. Plus The Smiths are kind of cut for me now, because Morrissey is a #### and I didn't want to go Robert Smith with a Cure song already taken.

I was really being light-hearted with that. I never really liked Morrissey either. Not a huge Smiths fan.

I considered taking the Juju on that Beat song but I just couldn't do it.

These are on the first post now as well.

Just checking out the playlist. Skyscraper, the song I took, is by Touché Amoré and Julien Baker, not Bad Religion. 

Baker Mayfield...Julien Baker is the connection there.

There's a nice Wayne Shorter jazz piece called Juju that I had ready if the opportunity arose

Yeah I knew that, must have been a finger slip.

No sweat. Sorry for even having to point it out, but figured it makes the list flow better. Part of the fun of this round is that the songs are thematic -- Touché's song is (by their own admission) a love letter lyrically to his mother and sonically to the The National, of whom they are fans. The next is song is The National.

Dunno, @rockaction mentioned he had the jitters after watching Kyler Murray last night!

If Jerry and Zeke can get their acts together, I'm OK so far. But that's a big IF!

QBs make up about 12 of the first 30 on the custom cheat sheet. Last year it was like 26 of 32 because of sixteen teams,etc.

It becomes a bit interchangeable at some point. I'm locking down a sure flex because I know that even though I won last year (like how I did that?), I got really lucky splitting the first four games without a QB flex (Winston was suspended). As for the QB I picked...

Mr. Ected is dead right. I have more than the jitters, I'm a bit in disbelief right now and feeling wildly bad about not picking Cam Newton.

Hopefully Kyler and the coaches will get their acts together. He still has one more game when he can play. It’s times like this when people realize the importance of a good o-line!

Yeah, I knew the OL wasn't rated very highly, but I didn't think the Raiders would do that to them. They were running free.

Maybe people should describe the connection to the player, if it isn't brutally obvious!
