  1. They've recorded 11 sacks over the last 2 games. They've had 7 all year. Something is clicking in that Defense and I want some of it.
  2. The way the Falcons have been playing, I think this is a good move. Besides, as you said, Bucks cough up points to opposing defenses. Even if Jameis happens to not throw a pick (HIGHLY unlikely), Falcons D is much improved and should contain the total scoring by the Bucks. Plus it's a home game for the Falcons. Here's a fun fact: Falcons have played 8 quarters w/o surrendering a TD. 4 were against Brees. Now how many of you think Jameis can do better than Brees did?
  3. If it brings you any solace, I'm starting Jimmy G over Matt Ryan this week.
  4. Denver D was the streaming start of the week clocking in at 20 pts. Other notable mentions : - Panthers (thanks to Winston's lovely 5 picks) - 18 pts - Steelers - 14 pts - Niners - 12 pts - Skins - 12 pts Looking at the Jags for this upcoming week @ Cincinnati. Ravens' paltry defense held them to 17 points and Jags held NO to 13 pts. A couple sacks and a hopeful gift from Dalton and you have yourself a decent stream. Nothing else worth looking at on my waiver wire... sigh
  5. As far as defenses go... I picked up the Skins against the Dolphins. Only other two options I would consider are the Broncos vs Titans (they held Philip Rivers and the Bolts to 13 points and Mariota is much worse than Rivers) or SEA vs CLE (don't trust SEA secondary all that much). Possibly Dallas vs NYJ but don't trust Dallas D all that much either. If I had to rank them it would look something like this: - Skins - Broncos - Dallas - Seattle
  6. I have both. I'm keeping Nugent in the lineup this week and Brown on the bench. Been tempted several times to drop Brown but keep reminding myself that Malcolm Brown is a fringe RB1 if Gurley gets sidelined. RBs are the scarcest position. Kickers are a dime a dozen. Don't do it. Stream your kicker if you have to but don't roll the dice on losing Malcolm Brown.
  7. It's pretty difficult to predict this matchup and I don't like the chances of the Rams bouncing back and biting you in the a**. It's still the Rams. It's still a divisional fight. Rams play at home. Both teams are going to deploy everything they can to win, including Gurley. Honestly... I just wouldn't risk it. Could it work out if you start the niners D? Definitely. But it could also very well be a high scoring affair where both teams go ham and your defense gives up TDs and yards. I would rather face an offense where I know with 100% certainty, sucks. Jets, Bengals, Redskins, Dolphins. Much higher probability there. My .02
  8. I like it. I'm currently doing the same. I agree - they do have some talent on D. Even if they play half as well against a tougher matchup, they should still produce decent fantasy numbers. Plus, they're playing at home and need to win in order to stay in playoff contention. The AFC north features a 2-2 Browns and a 2-2 Ravens. Steelers are one win behind tying 1st if Browns lose next week against SF (possible).
  9. you mean week 8? that's in 4 weeks. First they play Baltimore this week, Chargers next, followed by a BYE week and then the Dolphins. Not worth rostering as a streamer during that timeframe unless they keep up their stellar performance against tougher offenses (possible, but unlikely).
  10. the only real option available to me on my waiver. Playing PIT vs CIN last week paid UUUUGE dividends. Can we go more in depth into this matchup? Cardinals D is ok but Bengals O-line is TRASH. They conceded 8 sacks to Pittsburg on MNF. What other factors come into play? They have rookies playing CB and lack a pass rush. Terrell Suggs has been meh all season. Past stats: Week 1 vs Detroit: 27-27 Week 2 @ Baltimore: 23-17 Week 3 vs Carolina: 38-20 (Kyle Allen threw 4 TDs and had a 144 QBR!) Week 4 vs Seattle: 27-10 (they looked awful last week against Seattle). I have PIT from last week and can't decide if I want to stream ARI and drop PIT (who plays Baltimore this week).
  11. Oh really?!! yeah I heard that too!!! did ya'll see Tarik Cohen show Kyle Long's dong to the whole world? lmao... https://deadspin.com/tarik-cohen-unwittingly-exposes-a-nude-kyle-long-to-the-1838409753
  12. Bumpity Bump. Kickoff in t-minus 35 min... Leaning Darrell Williams over Miles Sanders but both might slide to DJ Moore. Texans have given up 9th most fantasy points to the WR position this season and he's been a target machine thus far.... However, lions have allowed 5th most fantasy points to opposing RBs this season so Darrell looks prime for a good game so long as he doesn't cede too many touches to Shady....
  13. Let me hear your thoughts. Sanders fumbled twice last week and had those issues in college. I'm a little concerned with him tonight, especially with Howard vulturing TDs but Darrell has a healthy Shady. Should I put D.J Moore in instead and forget about both!? Moore had a lucky a** reception (only one all game) last week that salvaged his day. Not sure I trust him with Kyle Allen there. Ugh. What to do..
  14. I'm going PIT vs CIN at home this week instead of the following available WW options: - WSH @ NYG - IND vs OAK - ATL vs TEN Anybody have insight on why I might be doing it wrong? Or reinforcement of my decision? Thanks.
  15. Coin flip. I like Bell & Singletary a lot this year. Even tho Bell is on a s--- team, he's one of the best RBs in the league. Singletary is gonna take the reigns of that offense before you know it. BUT, Ekeler is the #1 RB in fantasy right now. And Ridley is doing work. Here's the reason I wouldn't take that deal: Jets have a rough schedule the next 5 weeks that includes Patriots, Eagles, Cowboys, Patriots again!, Jags. That's 5 weeks of subdued production by Bell. Compare that to Ekeler's next 5 matchups: Texans, Dolphins, Broncos, Steelers, Titans. If you're in a PPR league, you stay put.
  16. It's not a bad idea but now is the wrong time to sell on Evans. People are buying low on him. TB is still a throw first team and will continue to air it out. Matter of time before Jameis steps his game up and Evans begins to haul in some TDs. I would probably just rather wait for that big game before trying to trade for a decent RB.
  17. You're right - I'm not thrilled about it either but I have three must start WRs and my RB situation pales in comparison. Loaded was used in context, my bad.
  18. Cowboys are the streaming option of the week, hands down. I would say Packers vs Broncos and 49ers vs Pittsburg are tied for second. Hard to tell how well Mason Rudolph will play and Conner's health is a factor. Titans vs JAX would be my 3rd pick. Titans offense will struggle against JAX and therefore, Titans DEF will be on the field longer than the Packers or 49ers will be IMO.
  19. There are not many strong running back options on the waiver, but Hyde is a solid if un-sexy option. In Week 1, he rushed for 83 yards and in Week 2, he rushed for 90 yards. He has yet to find the end zone, but there is no reason to think he won’t continue getting the bulk of the work for Houston. Duke Johnson is a solid pass catcher, but Hyde is the traditional back. He’s in RB3/Flex territory for the time being, but if he can start to find the end zone, he very well could find his way into RB2 territory. But considering you don't need a RB, it's hard to say. If AB wasn't the elephant in the room, I would say take the trade all day but AB is the #1 target on that offense now. I think you could do better for Hyde after he puts up a couple TDs. Push back for a better WR. Help in return?
  20. I would bench Mixon for Breida based on their current trends. I think Cinci is going to fall behind early and throw 50 times like they have been limiting Mixon's potential. Plus he's injured. I think Breida is the safer play. But if you can bench Allen for Breida then I would start both Mixon and Breida over Breida & A-rob. WHIR? Thanks!
  21. I get the first pick this week. Who should I burn it on? 1) James White was just dropped but he's not very appealing with Michel soaking up the backfield and Rex Burkhead getting plenty of work. Also, AB is now option #1 for Brady. Too many mouths to feed before White gets to eat... 2) I own Conner and Jaylen Samuels is available. Hearing Conner's injury isn't that serious and he should be available to play against the 49ers this week. 3) With Singletary sitting out the next game or more, Frank Gore will get at least 20 touches and a TD this next game against Cincinnati. Flex worthy IMO. 4) Demarcus Robinson looked awesome. I'm loaded with WRs though and I think with Hill returning, he regresses to the mean and would be a risky flex play that's boom/bust TD-dependant. Hard to predict which of those WRs are going to have the blow up game. Like a game of whack-a-mole. WHIR - drop your link. Thanks!
  22. I have both in my league as well. Also have Malcolm Brown. Initially slotted Brown in over Monty & Sanders but am leaning Sanders against a juicy match up against Atlanta. Philly trusts him and he's the clear cut #1 on the depth chart unlike the other 2. Sanders.
