2018 Fantasy Football Discussion Thread

Recommended Posts

I hadn't thought about it but I think I'm going to eliminate kickers from my league.

There is much more strategy with def than there is with K.

By the smallest of margins, I held on to win this week and take highest points for the week (small $$$ bonus).

Here's what stinks about that. I have Sony Michel, and he was questionable with his status uncertain until 90 minutes before game time. I wasn't going to be around for the Sunday night game, so I got nervous. I looked for who was available, and Alfred Morris was, so I picked him up. According to a few sites I searched, he was likely to get the bulk of carries Monday night with Breida possibly sitting out. Well, it turns out Morris didn't carry the ball at all, and Brenda played and looked pretty good. I won by half a point, but I had to sweat it out.

With Gronk out, I’d go Gordon. But my team is 1-5

Haha yea its tough. Shep has the best matchup but Engram is coming back. Patriots have Gronk out but I can easily see Edelman and Hogan soaking up the targets along with James White. Its tough..

Need some help on a trade offer...... 12-team, 0.5 PPR, ESPN league.

 

I trade away...... Gronk and Brandin Cooks

I receive..... James White and Nick Chubb.

 

The reason I am considering this is because I my RBs are trash. Alex Collins is my #1. And the reason I am willing to part with Cooks is because I have Antonio Brown and Mike Evans still. I am going to have to replace Gronk with Vance MacDonald, which is a clear downgrade, but Gronk can literally get hurt at any moment. 

 

The one reason I am sitting on this trade is because White and Chubb are both bench players for him right now. He also has McCaffrey, Aaron Jones, Lamar Miller, and LeSean McCoy. So I feel like he is just trading spare parts and he will upgrade his TE and WR position. I kind of want to make him bleed out more than that. Should I ask him to throw in Njoku? Or Funchess? Or Corey Davis?

If you are in a PPR league.... then what the hell is wrong with you? You take that and run. Why he's even offering James White, whose been one of the best fantasy RBs for the year is beyond me (saw a crazy stat that Brady checks down to him I believe 34% of his throws, which leads the league). And Nick Chubb has been really good (my current #2 RB on my team). You can't worry about what he has on his team. Fantasy is a crap shoot as it is. Unless you are scared about potentially facing him in the first round of the playoffs or something (or if he's in the same division.. no idea how your league does their playoff brackets/matches) then you strengthen your team and worry about stuff like that later. I'm actually shocked your league is still doing trades at week 11.. pretty late in the season...

I'm just apprehensive about White because Sony Michel and Gronk are both healthy now. That will reduce White's carries and his receptions. And with Kupp out for the year, Cooks will likely see a rise in his targets now. 

 

I think maybe I'll use the next two days to push for him to throw in Njoku as a backup for Seals-Jones (just dropped MacDonald and picked up RSJ a few minutes ago), and if he won't throw in Njoku (He will have Gronk and Heuerman still), then maybe I just take the deal as is. I guess this trade really hinges on Gronk's health. If he gets hurt again, I feel like this was a slam dunk. If he's healthy the rest of the way, then I might be kicking myself.

Nick Chubb is a sell high guy IMO. He murdered one of the worst,if not the worst, defense in the league. He's trying to sell high. I'd much rather have Cooks as his value increased alot now that Kupp is out for the year. White is about to be TD vultured by a healthy Sony, returning Burkhead and now i wouldn't doubt BB keeps mixing in Patterson. 

 

TL:DR- Nix this trade, hold on to Gronk/Cooks.

Playoffs have started for my fantasy league. I ended up with the 2nd best record (9-3), but the 3rd seed because we have divisions. Because of a goofy as generated schedule, I played a very good team 3 times this season out of 12 games. I won all 3 games, but by less than 2 points twice. And WOULDN'T YOU KNOW IT, that team is my 1st RD matchup. Can I beat them FOUR times in 13 games? I'm projected to lose by 3, and I'm very nervous.

 

Early returns on the trade I made have been fine. White wasn't great, but Chubb was and Njoku had a great game, even though he was on my bench in favor of Brate.

 

So that leads me to my current dilemma....... Brate or Njoku at TE? Josh Reynolds or Chris Thompson or Inman at FLEX? I currently have Brate and Reynolds in there.

Going in to the games, the projection changed. He was able to pick up both Eckler AND Ware over me. I was now projected to lose by like 18. 

By the start of the New England game, I was projected to now lose by 30 points.

By the start of the Steelers game I was projected to lose by just 6. 

AFTER the Steelers game, I was projected to WIN by 16! Antonio Brown came up HUGE for me, and Eckler didn't do much.

All he had left was Ertz tonight, and Ertz merely made it slightly over his projection.

I won by 14! Phew, what a fucking relief. I almost feel bad beating the same team 4 times in one season, and all when I was the underdog.

 

On to Round 2!

I missed the playoffs. My team wasn't that bad but I always found ways to lose. Had plenty of weeks in the top 3 in points where I would lose. 

But I also lost to the team who had 0 other wins 80-67 a few weeks ago, so I probably didn't deserve much. 

Still have my work league I guess.

The joys of fantasy football. Everyone should rush to go claim Samuels now from Pitt, someone eligible at RB AND TE...

Indeed, better now i suppose rather than the final. Also that's only in Yahoo leagues apparently, I'd be all over that if it was ESPN.

Ah gotcha. Yeah honestly not sure why Yahoo has that weird designation.

Yup, as a rookie too, not familiar with his college career but did he play some TE at NC State? Either way just weird.

I think Yahoo will fix this because it could be an absurd advantage for the team that claims him (I am attempting to do so but have a very low priority among playoff teams, so not likely that I get him).

Yeah, I'm guessing it gets patched as well. You may have a workhorse RB in the first week of the playoffs starting at TE for teams...

I think that's exactly it. 

The funny thing was that when college DFS was around at the start of his career at NC State, it was the exact same thing. He was listed at TE yet would get multiple carries out the backfield, he was plug and play no matter the price

Nice, whoever gets him in Yahoo leagues is getting a steal. Yahoo Fantasy tweeted out that the TE designation is here to stay. Stupid ESPN should follow suit.
