2018 Fantasy Football Discussion

Use this thread to share news and ask/give advice.

I'll start it out.

Who would you start at TE for Week 2:

Watson (Saints vs Browns) or Eifert (Bengals vs Ravens)?

Who would you Flex out of this bunch:

Cooks (Rams vs Cardinals) or Agholor (Eagles @ Bucs) or Stills (Dolphins @ Jets)?

PPR for both questions.

my rankings have Eifert at 12 and Watson at 13 so toss it up but i kind of like Eifert here more.

Agholor 17, Cooks 19, and Stills 25

I like Agholor in this as he will be a targeted machine until Jeffrey returns. Rams may be up big and Cooks may be a non-factor.

Fournette's injury is throwing my lineup for a loop. Currently have him down in the flex.

Eifert/Watson is a coin flip. I'm a big Cooks fan as he helped me to a championship a couple years ago.

Traded Hunt and Sanders for Gurley this week.

I ended up sitting Eifert - didn't like the match-up.

I'm keeping close tabs on Fournette too for another league. I think he'll end up starting and have value as a Flex at minimum.

Gurley for Hunt/Sanders is a good trade if you're happy with your WR depth.

I typically rent D/ST weekly and am struggling to decide if I want to keep the Patriots or try and find a better fit for this week on waivers.

I toyed with the idea of sitting Green because of the matchup. I'm glad I kept him in the lineup. I took my own advice I give to others. When in doubt, start your studs. You draft them high for a reason.

Wish I would have kept Dalton in the lineup.

It really paid off this week. Gurley went nuts and I put Thompson in at the flex for Sanders.

I get Wentz back this week. I already have Russell Wilson, so I am going to have to start making some decisions. I think for now I wait another week to let Wentz settle in.

What QB's are on waivers? Hopefully, Wentz gets back to the form he showed last season, but without Jeffery (who seems to be hurt all the time), does he have any reliable options besides Ertz?

Seattle looks sick and without Baldwin, Wilson doesn't have any really good weapons. You may want to explore waivers in case Wentz takes a bit to get up to speed.

Waivers are thin at QB and I can live with those two until they're up to speed.

After striking out with my D/ST last week, I dropped the Pats for the Jets but am immediately reconsidering now.

The Bengals (@CAR), Panthers (CIN), and Cowboys (@SEA) seem to be my best available options.

Any leans?

Seattle's offense is pretty awful right now, so I would lean towards the Cowboys.

Panthers hardly generated any pass rush against Atlanta. When Andy has time to throw, he's pretty good. Not sure I'd go with the Panthers. When Geno sits, Bengals defense generates no pass rush.

Week 4: Roethlisberger (at home) vs Baltimore or Brady (at home) vs Miami? I'm actually leaning towards Roethlisberger with Brady's WR situation.

Wow, that's tough one. Two good defenses. I went through the mental gymnastics of Wentz vs. Russell Wilson last week, opted for Wentz and they both scored the exact same number of points.

Brady has Gronk, who the opposition has been double teaming and possibly Josh Gordon as his go to guys this week. He'll probably be pissed after getting embarrassed by Detroit.

On the flip side, Pittsburgh's defense is an abortion and, even against Flacco, I can see that being a high scoring game. Pittsburgh has a ton of weapons and even if Roethlisberger throws a couple of picks he's still probably going to have 300+ and 2-3 TD's.

Flip a coin. They'll probably score similarly.

Benched Goff and Kupp last night (Kupp was a last minute Flex scratch for James White) while I faced off against Goff in another.

The only consolation was that I started Thielen and Cooks against Goff so I should still be competitive in that match-up with a decent QB showing.

Trying to decide between Julio Jones, Tyreek Hill, JJSS, Calvin Ridley, and Mike Williams at WR/Flex; and Leonard Fournette, Lamar Miller, and Phillip Lindsay for RB/Flex.

Fournette hasn't played since week 1 and has been listed as questionable all week, and Lindsay has a pretty favorable match-up against KC's run defense. Miller against Indy is pretty much a lock for me.

WR would seem to be pretty simple, but Julio Jones hasn't done squat since Freeman went down and has been listed as questionable all week; Tyreek Hill historically hasn't done a whole lot against Denver and has just been OK the past two weeks (Mahomes' ability to spread the ball around is definitely hurting him); JuJu is outplaying Antonio Brown, but has been listed as questionable all week and it's Steelers/ Ravens; and Ridley has been a monster the past two games. Mike Williams seems to be Phillip Rivers' go-to redzone target and is playing SF, so he's a lock as well.

Right now, I have it set at:

Fournette
Miller
Ridley
Williams
Lindsay

It's a big, possibly stupid, move to bench Jones, Hill, and JJSS, but my gut is saying stick with it.

Facing a similar dilemma, Crusaders. I have Alex Collins and James Conner at RB. Odell and Michael Thomas at WR. Diggs (already played) and Calvin Ridley at the flex. On my bench is Allen Robinson, Royce Freeman, Kerryon Johnson, Mike Williams and Tyler Boyd. Poole has been abused by slot WRs so far this year and Boyd seems to have figured things out. KC doesn't have a great run defense but Lindsay seems to have a slight edge over Freeman. Allen Robinson hasn't done much yet this season.

Pretty gutsy to ever sit Jones or Hill. The second you sit Jones, Matt Ryan's head finally emerges from his behind and he realizes he should take chances with Jones.

I don't have any issue with the order of those 5 guys.

10 team league. My RBs are OK. WRs are good. But I'm stuck with Russell Wilson or Andy Dalton as my QB.

same boat for me. just can't trust Fournette to get through a game, even when is 100%.

i ended up starting alfred morris for Miller (because C Carson was a late inactive so he was my only option)

luckily i have Yeldon on my bench.

I also started Fournette. Luckily Kerryon and Sony have taken over as solid feature backs for their team. Might have to start both next week.

I have Kerryon and Michel too. My backs are Gurley, Drake, Chris Thompson, Michel, and Kerryon. Drake is headed to the bench! I hope Patricia wakes up and starts using Kerryon more.

so 9 catches for 54 yds and a few carries for 2 yds...9 + 5.4 + .2= 14.6 pts...so did you really lose by .4?

I'm hoping to snag Yeldon but I'm 9th in the order. If I can't get him I'll have to start Miller again unless Adrian Peterson miraculously recovers from a sprained ankle.
