I was in a similar situation, but I was barely ahead by 2 points with Cooper left and the Ravens defense. Now I did win by about 12 but I was nervous because it really would've sucked to lose because I also had Tyreek Hill, and you know what happened Sunday Night. A loss would've knocked me out of the playoffs but instead I'm in position to get into the playoffs with a win. Win and in.

Do you guys like Cam Akers as a dynasty/keeper guy?

What a great waiver wire pickup for me this week getting the Rams. How that defense was available this late in the year, I don't know.

Looks like it after last night! Depends how your league does it as well. Our league allows keepers from the round they were drafted in, so if you have him snagged late it would probably work well. I had 2 strong years of Mojo Drew because of that.

people overstream the defenses I think. I have LA defense too. They had a tough matchup against Arizona last week, so I am sure they dropped the rams to stream another team. I picked up the bears defense last week to replace the rams (kept them on the roster) and they way underperformed the rams anyway. Picked up Akers 2 weeks ago too, so I am off to a 48-0 start in my playoff matchup.

Agreed on overstreaming defense. Many do it.

I have a tough situation, though, this weekend. I have the Steelers defense, but my QB is Josh Allen. I am included to grab a different D because of this. The best waiver option is probably either the Packers versus Detroit or the Seahawks versus the Jets. I am thinking the Seahawks D, but that D, while its been better lately, truly is terrible. But so is the Jets offense. Should I grab GB, Seattle, or just stick with the Steelers and the weird cheering issue with having them and Allen?

I'd stick with Pittsburgh. sometimes you overthink the defense. Its so random anyway, between scores in garbage time

Steelers defense is clearly the best of the 3. think of it getting insurance, if allen goes off or struggles you will get points.

Yeah probably, but I wasn't going to start the Dolphins defense against the Chiefs so I dropped them for the Rams. I usually add and drop defenses weekly depending on matchups, but I won't have to next week, assuming I make the playoffs, because the Rams have the Jets next. I don't even bother drafting one until the last round or two.

i drafted minnesota way too early this year, but lucked into picking up the rams early in the year and have kept onto them. I keep an open roster spot to stream players during bye weeks and tough matchups. I picked up Tucker because he was released during his bye week. you just never know when good opportunities will come up because people cut players for short sided reasons. Why take the first kicker off the board if you aren't going to hang onto him all season?

I rarely ask for lineup help, but it is the playoffs and I’m torn. Herbert or Watson? Any input would be appreciated

Fantasy Pros aggregate has Herbert @ 6, Watson @ 7. My gut had Herbert before Watson. Obviously Atlanta is a better matchup than Chicago. SoCal vs Chicago in December should be a bump too. The surrounding weapons lean towards Herbert. I'm not scared about last week's debacle for Herbert. Belichick is a freaking genius vs rookie QB's.

Its close enough that you definitely have to trust yourself, but my humble vote would be Herbert. Best of luck!!

Atlanta gives up the most fantasy points to quarterbacks in football. I think it's a no brainer.

Cooks is out if that helps you make a decision.

Montgomery takes it 80 yards to the house. Ugh!

AJ Brown has a nice long TD catch though. Yay!

Looks like I'm going to be in a shootout this week, which is good because I'll have Rodgers and Tonyan going for me today.

Went with Herbert, they basically had the same output, need 4 points from Tucker tonight to advance, which is amazing enough. One isn't normally in the position to win when Derrick Henry on the other team goes off for 40 points.

So I got burned pretty good in the first round of the playoffs. Chris Godwin was a dud for me, while James Robinson and Michael Thomas were only ehh. My biggest mistake ws playing James Conner in my Flex spot instead of Dobbins, though. Josh Allen ended up having a decent game after it appeared he was going to crap the bed. Right now I am down by 3 points, and I have Nick Chubb left, while my opponent has Mark Andrews and the Ravens defense. Gonna be a close one I think.

I freaking cruised into the playoffs yesterday. I played the perfect lineup with Rodgers, Gordan, Gallman, Cooper, Hill, Tonyan, AJ Brown, Koo and Rams defense. I was up by about 66 going into last night's game and my opponent had Singletary and Diggs. I guess I knew all along he'd never catch me but when you see Diggs go off like he did in the second half I still got a little nervous. Diggs must be lapping the field in targets this year.

I unloaded all my non-keeping assets to get Diggs in my keeper league before the trade deadline (Evans, Gurley, Robby Anderson). Glad I did.

Chubb was my first round pick and I dropped him when he got hurt. Worst mistake I made this year, especially when I'm weak at RB.
