Live Draft Gone Bad

@Anarchy99 how's it going?

Lost this week by 9 points. Could have won if we played either Peterson (started Brown instead) or Wilson (played Mahomes instead). Still having trouble getting any production out of our weak stable of RB's. Now technically in 7th place (Top 6 make the playoffs). Mark Walton is available, but I am not sure there is a ton of upside from a MI running back.

At least half the league has sketchy QB situations, so we tried shopping either Mahomes or Wilson to get a decent RB back. Not even worth listing the low ball offers in the limited interest we had from teams. Hopkins and OBJ have been disappointing so far, so if we don't get good numbers from them we are going to struggle.

We play one of two undefeated teams (and the highest scoring team in the league) this week and that team has no one on bye. Not hopeful this week.

Updated roster . . .

Mahomes, Wilson
Gordon, Peterson, Brown, Cohen, Mostert, Darrel Williams
Hopkins, OBJ, Fitzgerald, Crowder
Hooper, Ebron
Zuerlein
Bears, Saints

That's too bad. They'll do better. Keep competing.

Did you get a shot at Ty Johnson by chance? Sorry if this has been answered a few pages back, I'm hoping someone can get me up to speed in a sentence or two.

Couldn't get him. He was swooped up by a team with a higher waiver claim. Roster still is:

Wilson, Mahomes
Peterson, Gordon, Brown, Cohen, Mostert, Darrel Williams
Hopkins, OBJ, Fitzgerald, Crowder
Hooper, Ebron
Zuerlein
Bears, Saints

Update?

9th place at 4-6. Typical fantasy team roster management issues. Either start the wrong guy or face a player on the other team that blows up.

Current roster . . .
Wilson, Mahomes
Gordon, Ballage, Peterson, Mostert, MBrown, Ajayi, Tra Carson
Hopkins, OBJ, Fitzgerald
Hooper, Ebron
Zuerlein, Vinatieri
Bears, Saints

Breida may miss time, according to Roto, and if so, Mostert steps in as a viable play. 

Oddly enough, it's been the QB's and WR's that have been the problem. We end up playing the wrong QB most of the time, and the WR's either all do well or all underperform the same week. The RB's have not been productive enough to be able to post a big game to make up the difference. We went from horrible RB numbers to ok RB numbers, but we aren't going to catch a team starting CMC, as an example, when it comes to RB scoring. Bottom line, given the RB scoring issues, we have been middle of the league in terms of total points scored, which most weeks is not going to win a lot of fantasy games.

Interesting. Odell hasn't had a great year. Too bad you had to give up Evans in a deal (IIRC). He's WR2 overall in PPR scoring.

Haven't given an update in a while. At one point this team was 3-2. But it could only muster one win the rest of the way. Finished tied for last place at 4-10. It was an uphill battle that could not have been won. Thanks to all those that followed along, provided suggestions, or otherwise provided moral support.
