Not truly a WDIS question as much as a roster management question.

I have a playoff spot locked up and am facing the last place team. Njoku is my TE and right now I'm rolling with the spot empty. In order to pickup Moreau or Taysom, I would need to drop Mike Williams, Jameson Williams, or Darren Waller.

Is it bad if I roll with an empty TE position rather than gamble on a waiver option and dropping someone I think might help in the playoffs?
I guess it's not bad but if your opponent wins is there a chance he bumps someone else from a playoff spot? If so you have to make a claim IMO.

I would probably take Moreau over Hill but the drop is tough. Maybe Jameson...?
He has zero chance of affecting the playoff situation...the only possible affect might be my playoff seeding.

Truly this is a league question, some leagues require a full active roster, some require a full roster but allow inactives, others say it’s fair game. I’d ask your LM if there are not currently rules on the book.
Nothing in the rules to prevent or punish this. I pulled Njoku from my starting lineup just in case I pick up either of those replacement options with 3p or MNF kickoffs.

If anyone hears anything about Lattimore's availability @ the Bucs, I'd love to know. Big decision involving Mike Evans on my plate today. Thanks!

I’ve got the same dilemma and going Pittman. It’s a tough matchup but he shined still command targets. Just too much uncertainty how many touches White will get with a healthy Fournette.

Agonizing over this way more than I should, but with Fournette still being tagged questionable today...here we are. 😑

.5 pt PPR. Can start three of the following at RB and Flex:

Taylor vs. Dal
Walker vs. LAR
Pachecho vs. CIN
White vs. NO

Dont like Taylor's matchup, but Saturday gon' give JT the ball no matter what, so he and Walker (against a Donald-less Rams D) are near locks to me.

Fournette potentially missing another week, or being lightly used at best, had me leaning White...but him being a Monday nighter is giving me pause. If Lenny winds up playing, I could plug Mike Evans at flex last minute, but id probably vomit while doing so.

Or I could avoid the headache entirely and just go with Ike, hoping he doesnt get marginalized by game script in a shootout.
100% Walker...no...200% Walker... actually ALL the percents Walker.

I also can't bench Taylor. He's playing too well since the coaching change.

Since it's not a full PPR I fade White a little. His value is the potential for 9 targets. Even if Fournette is out is he going to see higher quality opportunities than Pacheco? Maybe, but it's still close. If Fournette plays it's not close.

I can see flipping a coin between White and Pacheco if Fournette is out but

Walker>Taylor>Pacheco>White



ETA: nothing wrong with subbing in Evans but I still like Pacheco.

These (along with my lottery swing with Mike White) would have already secured the victory for me in this league, but for Walker's ankle injury. Just gotta sweat Taylor not having multiple lost fumbles now. :)

If I had an injury crystal ball I would be a bajillionaire.

Good luck.

Late to the party but, I think I would have went Pittman.

And looks like we both would have been wrong 🤷‍♂️
