I'm fine with the 25% rule as it neutralizes the bye week issue for the most part - only a slight difference now with the oddball weeks where 6 teams or 2 teams are on bye. I do think that having a free ride week wasn't ideal.
i am curious if the cut scores will all fall in a narrower range. The late-week 50% byes were typically in the 170s or even 180s IIRC. Would be surprised if any are that high.
Anyway may as well do a rooster post-mortem now for the official one.
QBs - Burrow, Fitzpatrick, Lance. Fitzpatrick was a very unlucky break - and he's a guy who I don't really think has been an injury guy over the years. Still a rookie who ain't playing as the #3 was dumb. I stand by the Burrow choice - I think he'll get bigger numbers as the season rolls on but with an affordable stud like Brady right there I blew it over a few dollars. And veering from Bridgewater was a bonehead move - like Lock is all that big a threat.
RBs - Elliott, Robinson, Harris (NE), Edwards, Bernard, Michel. BRU-TAL. I mean Zeke has been worse than expected but the usage he had before ain't happening and I underestimated Pollard obvs. Robinson while popular depends on a coach that I think has no clue in the pros - bad analysis. Harris will be fine for the dollars but I overinvested in a coach that likes to mix up the top targets on a weekly basis. Gus is bad luck. Bernard is a nice role-player for TB but that role is a niche one - and spending $8 for lucky sporadic scoring bad. Michel I guess might work out now and can't complain at the price. But I needed to go with guys who are the clear dog at the top. And Mixon and Najeh have strangleholds. Dumb.
WRs - Tyreek wasn't the problem in week 1 and week 2 is bad luck. Still it's a diversified offense that is target rich. The price point maybe wasn't the best idea. Can't kill myself for it though. Sutton was brutal in week one but that's probably bad luck. Beckham injury is a little bad luck but shoulda paid it more mind. Meyers - at his price point - probably was the one and only Patriot I should have taken. Callaway a massively popular preseason hype apparent bust (shoulda learned with Trequan from this team). Edwards was the rare good popular pick. MVS and Desean are two cheap whiffs at this point. The do over is to go more with guys in the mid-range though. Stochastic approach.
TEs - I got too enamored of Pitts - Looking at the balance of this team I took too many guys set for a slow start. Jonnu has been okay. Kmet was okay week 1. Everett - I'm dubious. It's sorta a lot of guys who - outside of Pitts - seem to have limited upside. Arnold was better to provide that for cheaper. Always tough position to get right.
PK - 3 cheap (McManus, McPherson, Elliott) so far seems fine - double digits both weeks and all 3 look set to keep their gigs. Did this okay.
TD - 4 minimum wage defenses gave me a pair of 5s. I need to look harder at what the mid-price teams deliver next time.
But that is not a winning rooster. Bad stuff.
