    I know that's a 6 team league, but how the heck did you get Kamara, Cook, Thomas, and Hopkins considering they were all no worse than top 5 (preseason rankings) within their positions?!

     

    Every team in our 6 team league is stacked lol!  Kamara, Cook, and Hopkins were a result of an auto draft we did through Yahoo because no one else in the league has played FFB before and we got a late start.  I got Thomas in a trade after he got inured.  Sometimes, I wish I didn't have this "problem" because I never know which stud is going to put up a dud or go off on any given week.

  2. I also play in a shallow league with 6 teams and my team is stacked with "studs".  The problem is that the studs are hard to predict on a weekly basis.  For example, last week, my team performed as follows in half PPR:

     

    Starters:

    P. Mahomes: 31.28

    D. Hopkins: 8.00

    M. Thomas: 7.10

    J. Jefferson: 22.50

    A. Kamara: 5.70

    D. Cook: 8.20

    D. Waller: 4.30

    J. Tucker: 2.00

    Pitt: 14.00

     

    Meanwhile, on my bench:

    A.J. Brown: 23.80

    D. Montgomery: 22.80

    A. Gibson: 34.10

    A Robinson: 23.40

     

    Last week was one of my worse losses of the season and, even with that team, I am sitting in 3rd place because teams with less "studly" players are out performing my studs on various weeks and at least one or two of my studs are putting up duds on a weekly basis.  

  3. I take it more seriously than I should.  I actually had to take a hiatus from it for a while because it consumed me and I hated watching football games on TV.  I'd get ticked if they threw to a WR instead of giving it to my RB at the goal line and I spent way to much time reading the stat lines at the bottom of the screen.  I recently got back into it though because my son wanted to join a league with me.  So, here I am, doing all the research I should and I am still losing games that I was projected to win because players put up duds of games (insert AJ Brown here lol).  I have the most fantasy points in our league, but I am sitting in 3rd place at 5-4.  I'll make the playoffs, but the game is so maddening and frustrating because it is completely contingent on how the players perform on a week to week basis.

    But that's the thing, Brown needs that one big play in order to produce. Hence, boom/bust. You can't expect him to have a 50 yard TD every week, and if he doesn't, he's likely to bust. 

     

    And he busted on the one week I needed him not to with Mahomes and Julio on their bye weeks...ugh.

    Im tempted to try and sell him to the CMC owner in hopes he doesnt see the field this year. I dont like whats happening off the field, and with the injury concerns I wouldnt be shocked if something came up to where he sits again

     

    I was thinking the same thing....

    Rams dropped him for a reason. He was brutal last year. 

     

    It's not like the current Rams' kicker is lighting it up this year either though.

    [...]  The potential is there for this guy, especially with Dalton at QB, but he is leaving a lot of points on the field.

  7. Noah Fant (ankle) spotted at practice

    Denver Broncos tight end Noah Fant was spotted at Wednesday's practice.

    Fantasy Impact

    There is no word yet on what his participation level will be, but practicing on a Wednesday is always an encouraging sign for an injured player's potential availability. This is a situation to monitor closely as the week progresses.
