Well, I barely hung on to win by 1.1 points.


Did the remote get thrown through the wall watching Hopkins break that long one in garbage time when it looked like you were good before he got tackled at the 10?

I'm a Cooper owner too and was pretty happy with his game last night all things considered.

I'm glad it was a blowout game so Hopkins was on the bench at the end of the game.

made a trade last night, have been struggling with the TE Position all season and had an extra WR (Chase Claypool, Justin Jefferson, ODB, AJ Brown, and DK Metcalf), so i traded claypool for Januu Smith. I know he is hurt but hoping he can stabilize the position down the stretch and I can only start 2 WR's a week and a flex player anyway. I think I did OK.

I typically make a ton of moves in my fantasy leagues to churn the bottom of my roster, which leaves me at the bottom of the waiver order. Well, for the last couple weeks, I've lucked out and haven't had to make a move in my office league, while this weekend's byes have left every other team scrambling for a kicker or a defense. I woke up this morning to see that the last-place team in the league dropped Nick Chubb (who should be ready to roll in the next couple weeks) to grab a defense. I'm sorta thinking it's a no-brainer to grab and stash him until he's ready to go, as he's got Top 5 RB upside when healthy, but is it worth using my #1 waiver priority? My other RBs are James Conner, James Robinson, Kenyan Drake, Damien Harris and Zach Moss. Thoughts?

i have the same philosophy. I always have the most claims in my league and am always at the bottom of the WW. it has its positives, it lets you get ahead of some players before they are obvious claims. the downside is obviously, if you wait too long you won't get him. That happened with Tonyan to me. Regarding your situation, i think its worth dropping back down to the bottom to get Chubb for the stretch run.

Thanks! I was actually considering making a trade offer of one of my WRs for Chubb thinking the same thing, that he'll be good to go for the stretch run. I have Julio Jones, Michael Thomas, Chris Godwin, Justin Jefferson and DeVante Parker, so I feel really strong there. Now being able to pick him up for nothing is a pretty sweet deal. I still have to drop someone, and debating between Moss, Zach Ertz (I have Engram starting at TE) or Justin Herbert (have Josh Allen at QB)

Smith's injury is supposedly minor, and he's a Top 5 TE when he plays, so I probably would have made that deal. Claypool isn't going to keep up the crazy trajectory he's on, and like you said, you have two Top 10 WRs in Metcalf and Brown already, a great lottery ticket in Jefferson and it appears that ODB has some terrific matchups coming up.

with Dallas Goedert being elgible to return tomorrow, I think you would be safe in cutting Ertz. I don't like dropping RB's with the injury rate. If Singletary goes down, Moss has great value.

Hope you got Chubb! Moss isn't a bad drop. Damien Harris probably wouldn't hurt either. NE RB's always stick it to you. And with Cam back, Harris will lose most of the goal line carries.

Since he was just waived Wednesday, there's an extra day way to pick him up, so I have to wait till tomorrow. I still have top waiver priority, though, so he's mine. I am dropping Ertz for him, as he's slated to be out 4-6 weeks. Engram is my other TE, so I should be ok there. Would really like to finally see that Engram breakout game tonight, though.

So another quandary ... with the news on Antonio Brown yesterday, is he worth a speculative add soon? I mean, I turn over the bottom of my roster pretty regularly, so he might not be a bad guy to grab and sit on for a couple weeks to see where he goes.

IMO, there are better uses for the bottom of the roster. He has been out for over a year, I can't see him contributing much. If he does sign with the seahawks I can't see him getting many balls from Lockett or Metcalf.

Chubb is a great use of a waiver priority.

As an aside, I hate being top waiver priority. I just end up being overpicky about it and have to avoid waivers totally, as opposed to being middle-bottom priority and just being able to freely make all the claims I need without having to wait for waivers to clear first and getting beaten to the punch by guys getting up at 3 am for it. I did claim Claypool when I was #2 but of course #1 claimed him too.

As far as AB goes, just depends what the bottom of your roster looks like. If your bench is really deep and you have to drop something of good value, probably not worth it. If you're holding onto junk like Cordarrelle Patterson like I am, AB would be a good swap.

I really wish my league just reset the WW based on reverse records each week. seems like a more fair way to do it, then based on when you make a move.

I was offered Kenyan Drake, Chase Edmonds, and Mike Williams for Amari Cooper. Should I take it?

My other WRs are Mike Evans, Robby Anderson, and Edelman. RBs are Gurley, Ekeler, Swift and McKinnon. 12 man full PPR.

I feel like my whole lineup this week is a toss up.

My RB's are Gibson, Bernard, Henderson, and Justin Jackson. I'm leaning toward Jackson and Bernard. Jackson should hopefully be the feature back against a very beatable defense and Bernard should be getting all the snaps that Mixon was getting plus the ones he was already taking from him. On the other hand, Henderson has shown he can blow up and everything I'm reading says that Gibson should roll through the Cowboys even though he hasn't done that at all this year and essentially in a 50/50 split with McKissic.

My WR's are Crowder, AJ Brown, Evans, Higgins, and Diontae Johnson. Probably going with Crowder and Brown and they should have the highest floors. Evans has been all over the place and his season point total only looks good because of all the TD's. Brady seems to be locking onto Gronk and Goodwin and forgetting about him. Higgins is starting to look like he might be the new man for Cincy but hard to trust Burrows. Johnson and the cadre of Steelers WR's are a total guess at this point. I've got Justin Herbert or Teddy Bridgewater as my superflex because I generally go with the safe floor but might put Higgins there.

Crowder listed as doubtful, which basically means out.

I would probably agree on your RB choices. And if Crowder is out, I'd go Brown & Higgins.

Crowder was questionable at the time and I didn't think there was a chance of him not playing but, well, Higgins it is. Of course, this will be the week Evans goes all 2019 and puts up a 10/15/2 line or something.

My heart and brain are both telling me the obvious choices are Jackson and Bernard. But all the places I go for fantasy info are telling me that Gibson is going to be huge against Dallas. Not that I put any stock into such things, but both Yahoo and ESPN are projecting big points for him. I can somewhat see their line of thinking but he has just not been getting the volume all year for that to happen.

My go to site has Gibson @ 16.
Jackson @ 20
Gio @ 36
That's pretty significant with Gibson & Gio. I lean towards your choices. But the experts are able to think more clearly than we do usually. I'd probably trust my gut, but be prepared to be angry with my gut later.

I traded DeAndre Swift a few days ago and I'm already having sellers remorse.

Nevermind what I said last week about the Cowboys still having a good offense. Dalton sucks.
