10 team, dynasty, 2-2 sitting in 5th place. $83 of $100 budget left. How much would you guys be bidding on the following players:

 

Latavius Murray

Bilal Powell

Aaron Jones

 

Dropping Wendell Smallwood, or would you just pass and hold Smallwood for the time being? My team is stacked, but with Ty Montgomery injured and bye weeks I don't feel good about this week.

 

 

Hold Smallwood

How much would you throw at Watson? I have my complete budget available ($100) and my QBs are Mariotta and Luck. Basically, I need this dude but there are other QB needy team who I think will go hard after Watson this week.

 

We just switched to a FAAB format last year, so I am relatively new to this format. Would I be crazy to go all in to ensure that I get him?

I believe both Murray and Powell are upgrades over Smallwood. 

 

I'd bid somewhere in the $50-80 range. Probably put same bid on both players. Leaning towards slightly more for Murray though. 

 

I'd rather hold Smallwood over Jones. Don't see an upgrade there and think Jones is just going to be a 1-2 week play and be droppable after.

Being a Ty owner holding Jones in a dynasty wouldn't be a waste though. Unless you don't think he is good or Williams will end up being better.

You can listen to the free footballguys' waiver wire podcast and transcribe it here, which is what I've done in the past, but if you have a subscription to their site you can just copy it here for everyone to see and save me half an hour... @Jay85 has been posting it the last few weeks so hopefully he sees this and does the same!

 

Give me an hour. Once I get home I will do it in few. @smeeze

I’m thinking about 33% for Watson but worried it won’t be enough... my only other QB is Big Ben and my team needs a spark like Watson.  What are you guys bidding?

 

I talked about Watson 1 page previous. I'd probably just stick with Ben. I don't know your league or roster size though. 

 

If you have to have Watson I'd look at QB needy competition and make your assessment off that. I'm one opinion though. 

 

I would say if you must have him I'd assume 33% gets it done

About 10 percent....long season ahead and i can stream qbs if needed.

Someone is going to be chasing 5 td games and if they wanna spend more so be it

I am using 1 overall wavier wire pickup which is 9th overall for watson. I doubt i can snag murray.ellington  jaron brown can land to me. I rather get Watson and figure out flex postion with someone else. 

 

Rather have Ellington myself if it's PPR, but this is your league and do what you as a GM feel is right for you.

DJ rumored to not be coming back until at least week 10. 5 weeks of a RB is a lifetime in fantasy football. Ask Dalvin Cook owners if they remember what life was like before him. 

 

They've only owned him 3.5 weeks before his season ending injury.

I'm in a deep bench 12 team PPR where almost every decent handcuff is already owned. I'm thinking about going all in (about 90% I have left) on Murray. 

 

Next best thing on the wire is Gallman - what would people put on him, if considering the WW is relativity bare?

It's already Wednesday?  When are your bids due?

I won Murray for 61% bid.  Next highest was 52% if that helps you.  There were 6 / 12 of us that bid for him.

My main league is Thursday morning FAAB for some reason.  A couple people pointed out it was weird but others said they are used to Thursday; to me it didn't matter.  I kind of like having the extra day to get this kind of info on how much players are going for.  

 

How deep are benches in your league?  We have 9-player benches and that seems to put an extra FAAB premium on good pickups (since so many are already stashed).
