    ūüė¨ I bet Yelich still has a good season. He's had back issues before. I'm sure he'll be up and going soon. (I am a yelich owner too).

    Just remember the season is still young. I try not to panic in April with guys struggling. Better times are ahead.

    Yep, but it's tougher in H2H. I will get a loss this week due to these guys. It's not like ROTO where they can bring you back up the leaderboard. A loss is a loss. Hopefully when they get it going it leads to W's.

    My Pitching has been complete dog sh** this week. Luzardo and Strasburg.

    I had Snell, Castillo and Fried in a points league yesterday.

    After keepers, I had no pitchers and these were 3 of my first 4 picks. I also added Wheeler, Limet and M.Gonzalez. Couldn't believe that I got all those guys since all of the top SP's are kept and SP's are huge in this scoring system. I'm not so excited now. Way better on paper.

    Stacked keeper team is as cold as it gets out of the gates and facing a team that has double the RBI of any other team in the league. I have Tatis, Acuna, Soto, Trea as keepers. My first 5 hitters I picked are: Alonso, Gurriel Jr, Biggio, Moncada and Contreras. 3 have yet to play a game and the one's that have are hitting are 8/53 .150.
    2 of my bench players are also out: J. Bell and Schwarber and one guy I've been using to fill in Hayes, is now hurt.
    It's a long season, but this is H2H and don't really want to get in a hole early.

    And I get Alonso back, only to lose Acuna and now Tatis leaves injured. OMG.

    All my players who are clearly hurt also play on teams that wait until 10 seconds before the game starts to put guys on the DL. So now I have to watch people take players on my watchlist. Piss me off

    Like Eloy Jimenez, who has already had surgery, is out 5-6 months, but still showing DTD on ESPN? As I watch more and more players come off of the board. Or Dinelson Limet, who is shout OUT until at least April 16th, but does not have an IL designation in CBS, so can't put him on the IL? I know that it's because the teams have not designated them IL yet, but it's still irritating.

  7. This is a 10 team H2H Categories:

    Hitting( R, 1b, 2b, 3b, HR, BB, RBI, SB, AVG)

    Pitching (K, QS, SV, HLD, ERA, WHIP)

    This is my 2019 team as we didn't play last year, so we rolled our rosters to 2021. This is probably the best team I've ever put together........and still didn't win the champ. This team was built through keepers, trades and being aggressive with callups, so please spare me the 6 teamer league comments.

     

    Which 6 would you keep? There are no round penalties. It's just straight 6.

    Acuna, Soto, Tatis, J Ram, Machado, Trea, Devers, Albies, Alonso, Eloy, Y.Alvarez, W.Franco, Contreras

    Degrom, Bieber, Buehler, Soroka, Berrios, Paddack, Fried

     

    I am going with these 6 currently, but one guy is really trying to get Degrom from me. I don't usually keep any pitchers, but feel like I have to with these guys. 

    Acuna, Soto, Trea, Tatis, Degrom, Bieber

     

  8. This team went 4-9 and 8th place out of 10. Injuries(Golladay, A.Jones, AJ Brown, Goedert) underperformers(Zeke, Hurst) and just plain bad luck(Avg'd 152pts against the first 6 weeks). I'd put this team against most anyone on a weekly basis.

    QB - Watson, Goff

    RB - Zeke, A.Jones, Dobbins, Edmonds, J.Williams

    WR - Diggs, AJ Brown, Golladay, McLaurin, Claypool, Higgins, Pittman

    TE - Hurst, Goedert, Gesicki

  9. This is a 10 team Superflex/Devy Dynasty with TE Premium(1.5 PPR)

     

    I am tied for last place and the 1st place team really wants Zeke

    He has offered Taylor/Hockenson/2021 2nd Rd Pick

    For 

    Zeke

    I haven't bitten yet because I have Engram and Hurst at TE and I still think Zeke is/can be elite. So I'd really only be upgrading at TE at the cost of Zeke. I don't value the pick very much. We all have 3 devy picks so there are already 30 college players on our rosters. That 2nd RD pick is a real crapshoot as it would also be a late pick. He asked me what it would take and also said Mike Evans is available. Not sure I need another WR though either.

    My counter is going to be: Zeke/Hurst for Taylor/Evans/Hockenson

     

    Current starting lineup if healthy is:

    QB- D.WATSON

    RB - ZEKE

    RB - BARKLEY

    WR - METCALF

    WR - CLAYPOOL

    TE - ENGRAM

    W/R/T - HURST

    W/R/T - BOYD

    W/R/T - PITTMAN

    W/R/T/Q - BRADY

    It would look like this next year:

    QB- D.WATSON

    RB - TAYLOR

    RB - BARKLEY

    WR - METCALF

    WR - CLAYPOOL

    TE - ENGRAM

    W/R/T - HOCKENSON

    W/R/T - EVANS

    W/R/T - PITTMAN/BOYD

    W/R/T/Q - FIELDS

    Opinions? Stay put or give it a go?

     

  10. This is a non-PPR league(We actually get 2 pts for every 5 catches)

    I need to start 2 of these guys in my RB2 and FLEX spots

     

    My options are Bernard, Edmonds or J.Taylor for 2 spots. I can also use one of Tee Higgins and Diontae Johnson in my flex if not one of these guys.

     

    With Taylor playing tonight, I won't know for sure if Edmonds will be in a timeshare on Sunday and also don't love the matchup for Gio against PIT, even though he should get most of the touches if Mixon is out. Should I risk it and throw JT in there? He has to pop at some point right?¬†ūüėā

    I would move Diggs if I was you. You don't need that headache all year long and all these guys need to be started every week no question. I think Diggs may still have the highest perceived value of the group so I'd move him. 

     

    I'm 1-6 now, so it's not really likely to matter. 3 of the losses have been due to putting the wrong guy in between Diggs and McLaurin each time.

  12. Definitely worth taking a flier on a guy that's going to get a ton of snaps if your options are thin. Gonna fire him up over Edmonds and Bell.

     

    I haven't seen too much of the Bengals offense this season, but I now have to use Burrow, Bernard and Higgins this week due to bye weeks and injuries. Let's have a shootout!!!!!

    A waiver wire add for somebody drafted in top 6 rounds...i like it

    It was done out of necessity. I needed a RB and had a surplus of WRs. It still stings a bit. This is a keeper league and JJ was drafted, dropped, picked up, then traded. I didn't have room to keep him, so got what I needed.

  14. Anyone else? This deal is still sitting out there. Basically it comes down to this for next seasons keepers at the moment.

     

    Cook, Taylor, Lamb

    vs.

    Cook, Taylor, Metcalf

     

    That's pretty even, so maybe just not worth giving up Chubb when he gets back for my playoff run. However, I will probably lose him for nothing after the season.

    I just think Hunt being in CLE for another season after this one continues to diminish his value. I would have a very hard time dropping Taylor.
