3-0 so far. Ended up with the 2nd most points this week. If Gronk or Chris Thompson had done anything I would have had taken home another bonus. Oh well, my girlfriend ended up with the bonus week.

HOPING to finally get Devonta Freeman back. In the meantime, I have been throwing out feelers for one of my WR. I have AB, Evans, Cooks, and Cole. I'm thinking of moving Evans for an RB, since my RB spot is weak (Devonta, Collins, Thompson, Penny, Yeldon). The guy who has David Johnson said he would move him for Evans + Thompson, but I haven't decided if that's something I should do, given how bad Arizona looks.

I think I had a win by 0.1 last season.

 

No it wasn't you. 

 

Saw it was @chw42 who won by .02 points that year. I won one week by a point, but it was 1.0

I was right about @Brian but he lost by. 01 point back in '16

Imagine being the idiot who started Dalvin Cook last night. Hmph

Samesies. Man I hate my snake draft teams cos my auction draft. Snake draft I end up with rbs like Mixon/cook, is never take that much risk in auction league unless they were way cheap.

Minnesota's run game has been almost non-existent this year. Cook isn't 100% and Murray got stuffed by Buffalo's DLine last week.

It was a risk play when I made it, but with cook you still have possibility of a 2 yard screen going 80 yards.

That's why I played him but Cousins never checks down to him. Maybe LA had him covered but not 1 reception? Blah

Who did you have on your bench?

Cooks came up big for me, and I'll need that with Freeman out and Thompson on a bye. Relying on Hines from the Colts to just get me at least 5 or 6 points to hold down my projected 20 point victory.

Mack is likely out, so not the three-headed monster to deal with there. Decent chance.

Carson but he is questionable for Sunday and didn't want to risk it.

Can't blame you for risking it. Carroll is weird and for all we know Carson doesn't even get many carries on Sunday even if healthy.

Pulled off what I consider a solid trade.

2nd year Auction League Keeper 

I traded L. Fournette and Corey Davis for Tyrek Hill and Jordan Howard. 

I was sick of Fournette always being hurt, but the most valuable reason was Hill still has great keeper value as he can be kept for $26 dollars (He was taken for very low dollars to start the 2017 season). 

My lineup:

Brees (QB)

Hopkins (WR1)

DaVante Adams(WR3)

Hill (WR3)

Zeke (RB1)

Jamws Conner (RB2)

Vance MacDonald (TE)

Tyler Boyd (FLEX)

Obviously I’m going all in for this season, so may trade some cap space for next year to a rebuilding team for another RB I can throw in the flex spot.

another week, another loss to the team with the most points in the league that week.

Love when this happens three weeks in a row

 

Two of those three weeks, I had second most points for the week.

Hines got me far more than the 5 or 6 points I wanted.....and I still lost....by 1.5 points.

Gronk got hurt AGAIN, go fucking figure. But Evans had a bad game, Collins lost a fumble (the margin of loss for me this week), and the guy I played ended up having Travis Kelce score 17 points in the 2nd half and Phillip Lindsay fall in to the endzone following a PI call at the 2 yard line.

Steaming mad right now. I'm still 3-1, but I fucking hate being projected to win the entire week, only to have a shitty MNF game blow the week for me. Literally led all week until the 4th quarter of this game tonight.

Started 0-2 and have now won 4 straight. If Jordan Howard was even half of what he was last year, my team would be damn good.

Here’s a question for next week...

Brees on the road in Baltimore or Baker in Tampa...

This is definitely my last year of fantasy football. Just going to do daily fantasy every Sunday. 

It's just awful. In the last two weeks, I've gotten -1 pts from my kicker. Too much luck involved.

I haven't been in a league with a kicker in years. They are the worst.

If I do play again next year, it will be without kickers. Do you replace them with another FLEX or just cut it?

Yea but it also depends on you actually keeping an eye on whose been solid. I had Boswell (Steelers kicker) to start the year and he was terrible. I picked up the Houston kicker a couple weeks ago and he's been amazing. Thank god Houston is terrible in the red zone.

We cut it. For like two seasons we got rid of K and DEF and replaced them with 3 defensive players, but that kind of sucked too. We went back to just starting a team D and that's it. Who the hell wants to worry about kickers?!

I am in a league where we have kickers and reward longer field goals (3 for anything 39 or less, 4 for 40-49, 5 for 50 and over). Jason Myers of the Jets scored 27 points by himself this week (no one had him, though). It's ridiculous to reward kickers so much in fantasy. Zurlein last year was winning many weeks for teams.

I've proposed eliminating them or at the least removing the additional points for longer FGs. No one is willing to do either.
