  1. No, but he’s probably in better shape than Barkley this week. It’s a risk, but one I’m probably gonna take. Barkley isn’t gonna give me much this week, so it’s either Jacobs or … Cordarelle. Eh, I’ll probably re-re-re-think this numerous time tomorrow before the game and put Barkley in there again. Maybe flip a coin a couple times beforehand.
  2. I’m starting Jacobs instead of Barkley this week … and this week only (most likely). I have Henry, Barkley, and Jacobs as options, so I think I can survive, but I would like Barkley to at least put up RB2 numbers.
  3. Solid starters, but lacking depth, IMO, assuming QB/2 RB/2 WR/TE/Flex. Some might say Gaskin as your RB2 is risky. You have a nice set of receivers, and Krupp at the flex is good. Sutton or Chark could really thrive, too, giving you nice depth at WR. If either/both of them picks up, you could trade a WR for another RB down the line.

  4. Take that deal, IMO. Carson’s always solid and doesn’t miss a tremendous amount (a week here and there, usually, except for his extended absence when he broke his leg, if I recall correctly). I know you want Zeke, but I get the guy won’t sell low on him. You’re also trying to sell high on AB, though, and TB has three WR1-types in AB, Godwin, and Evans. Combine them with Gronk and you never know which pass-catcher is gonna be the go-to any given week. Carson, on the other hand, is generally steady and will solidify your RB corps.

  5. Thanks for mine. Solid team overall. As others have said, your biggest concern is WR depth after Ridley, but WR always tend to pop up throughout the year, at least more readily available than RB, so you did well picking RB first, IMO. Other than that, you’re looking good. Maybe see how things go and try to trade one of your RB and a WR for a WR upgrade at some point down the road.
  6. My team (other than the potential choices below): QB - Herbert/Winston; RB - Barkley/Jacobs/Mack; WR - Thielen/M. Williams/Golladay/Fuller; TE - Kittle/Freiermuth Team A: Chubb/Jeudy Team B: Henry/Chark Team C: Henry/OBJ Thanks, and as always, WHIR.
  7. If you want to get political/controversial: “Make Alvin Great Again” or “MaKamaraca Great Again”
  8. Just picked him up for $8. My WR could use some help, so I hope he pans out since I got a bunch of WR2/3/4 types (Shenault, M. Williams, Fuller, and Jeudy in a 16-team auction keeper league) after using my auction funds on keeper RB (Kamara, Gibson, and Gaskin) and Kittle. He showed a lot of promise toward the end of last season, and I hope it carries over. I’m not super worried about Jones Jr. taking much away, and Chark doesn’t seem to be coming back all that well. Now is Laviska’s time to shine.
  9. I'm currently in such a league, and I'm a fan of it. But you have to have ways to limit the keepability of guys over time. For instance, in my league, each team has 4 keeper slots (though you can trade the use of a keeper spot for extra auction cash - ie. I give someone $5 to get a 5th keeper slot, so I have 5 keepers but only $195 auction cash, and they only have 3 keepers but $205 auction cash). Also, yes, as you said, the cost of each player kept increases each year they are kept ($5 the first year, then $10 each year thereafter). So, take Kamara as an example. I got him off waivers the year he broke out and have kept him every year since. This year, he'll cost me $36 of auction money. Still a great value, but not as good as $6, or waiver value. I had D. Adams for years, but this year he was gonna cost me $46, and I had too many keepable guys at better value, so I traded Adams and Goedert for M. Williams and an extra keeper spot. Williams only costs me $8, and I had Kittle at $31, so Goedert was a throw in. I like the idea because it rewards managers for savvy draft choices or WW pickups, but not indefinitely. Last year, I drafted Gibson for $8 and picked up Gaskin on waivers. I should get to benefit from those good choices and pickups for a little while, no? Because of those choice, I'm rewarded by having Kamara, Gibson, and Gaskin for $55 combined this year. Next year, they will cost me $85 combined (if I keep all three). In two years, they'd be $115 (which I can't imagine doing - I'll hopefully have better choices than $56 for Kamara by then, even if it's still "value"). That being said, maybe it could be modified even more to limit the advantage I get. Having Kamara for 5 years and still only paying $36 might be (okay...is) a bit excessive. Maybe you can suggest limiting the number of years a player can be kept (that's one I've considered suggesting for ours, even though it would really hurt me). I'm sure there are others, but that would be a big one. But overall, having keepers in an auction league is fun and adds a whole new dimension.
  10. I've dealt with injuries to CMC, Carson, DJ (my entire RB group), Kittle, and Chark only to now lose Fuller???? I'm 6-6 after this week (barring a high-scoring game tonight with massive points from Russ, Carson, and David Moore), but still might make the playoffs if I can pull off a week 13 win. But with no Fuller, I'm heading into the playoffs with Claypool and Chark at WR, plus WW fodder. this blows.
  11. After getting Locketted last night, I need Hendo and Graham to combine for less than 19.5 points in 0.5 PPR league. In other words, I'm screwed.
  12. What you might be overlooking is that the 175mil deal probably wasn't fully guaranteed, and Dak wouldn't necessarily have made it to the full term of the deal. Let's say he signed that deal and he gets injured in the same horrific way. The Cowboys can release him for a fraction of the value of the contract. There may be injury guarantees or insurance included in the contract, but I would be confident in betting that it's not for the full value of the contract. So any yearly increase in the salary he earns IS meaningful to guard against just that very occurrence as what happened here.
  13. 45 PPR points from Kamara + Badgley. That game winning drive by the Seahawks last night probably put it out of reach...stupid Metcalf!!!! Would have needed less than 35 without those big catches and the TD. In another league, I need Josh Allen to not go full 2019-Lamar and stay under 56 points. I feel good about that one.
  14. To be fair, that prediction was made IN JULY, before anyone realized just how bad AJ was going to be this year...
  15. 1. Chark 2. Parker 3. Lamb 4. D. Johnson 5. Higgins 6. Gallup (this could be personal animus due to having him in a keeper league and him not doing much) Thanks for mine.
  16. Tonyan. More chance for higher target share. At least, that's what I'm hoping for since I need him to go off in one of my leagues where I lost Adams.
  17. Absolutely do that. It's a vast improvement over your current QB situation. I'd drop Wentz and keep Fitz for Kyler's bye week. Help with mine?
  18. While you are deep at RB, one of those is Drake, who I've never been a fan of. I'd stand pat or try to get a better receiver in return. Thanks for mine.
  19. 12-team PPR league. My current RB are Zeke, Carson, Gaskin, Hyde (to cuff Carson), Penny (IR). My WR are Chark, Fuller, TY, AJ, T. Smith, Hardman, and Alshon (IR). To round out, QB = Russ Wilson and TE = Kittle and Olson. Do I give Zeke to get D. Henry (and his cleats), Josh Kelley, and Stefon Diggs? On the one hand, I love Zeke's consistency, and Dallas's schedule is nice the entire season. Henry has some tough matchups, especially in the playoffs (if the NFL lasts that long). On the other, I could use another solid WR, and having the RB depth not tied to Seattle would be nice. Thanks, and of course, WHIR.
  20. I'm guessing (...hoping? 100% optimistically speculating?) they're taking precautions with Fuller and using his past hammy problems as an excuse to limit him in practice. He could tell them "I felt a fly run into the back of my leg" and the medical staff is gonna say "OMG, SIT THE F DOWN AND REST YOUR HAMMY, WILL!!!" Then boom, on the injury report.
  21. Manager is a huge Dallas fan, so it's more of a homer trade. I would like have the additional high-end WR, but losing Zeke's consistency would be tough. But Dak does have a ton of weapons in Dallas, whereas there isn't a whole lot in Buffalo...
  22. This, but with a tweak. I don't think you need the RB help all that much, but you do need the WR help for this week. I'd throw in a second WW claim for Lazard on the off chance that the other manager claims Jefferson instead. If Adams is out another week (which I could see them doing because GB has a bye in week 5, so they could give him 3 weeks' rest by resting him two games), Lazard could have another heavy workload. That would make Goff your #3 claim. Thanks for the help with mine.
  23. Don't you mean "stay negative"? (To give credit where credit is due, this was a joke from my 8.5 year old daughter when my family had to get tested after we were exposed, since the goal is to have a negative test result. From that moment forward, whenever the issue of COVID comes up, our mantra is "stay negative"! Fortunately, we did ... two times each!)
  24. Yeah, I'd do this one, as well, given that you actually have some decent RB depth in case of injury. Sanders is going to be solid for the rest of the year, but if you can roll out Cooper with your other WR, and hoping Mixon turns it around like last year, I think you'll be okay. Help with mine?
