Got Chubb for FREE.. while everyone else spent their FAAB on Barber and Ito, i sneaky added Chubb... lmfao and Doug Martin now my stable of RBs are coming together nicely ...

 

Kamara, Conner, Mixon, K. Johnson, G. Bernard, Chubb, D. Martin.... lmao love it dont even want to mention my WRs lmao

So I got in early on the Ito train, but MArtin is still available - who would you rather have?

So waivers were about to roll for this week, in the order of the inverse of the current standings, with total points scored being the tie breaker, amongst teams with the same record. 

 

I'm 5-1 and lead the league in points by a slim margin, so 11th claim isn't really snapping up anything of merit weekly, so I was planning on standing pat and picking through the discard pile after waivers rolled. 

 

Wasn't really sure Engram would be back this week, and Chris Thompson has been banged up, so I left them both in IR spots as questionable. I knew that I wouldn't have a crack at Nick Chubb who I figrued would be the number one claim Tues am. The owner of the number one claim called me and asked If I wanted to buy it off him for a 10th round pick in 2019? He told me had fielded an offer for an 11th round pick and that GM wasn't targeting Chubb. 

 

I didn't know Hyde was going to get traded, but I didn't want Chubb to get into any of the other major contenders hands, as this would hinder my chances of winning it all, always viewed Hyde as a place holder. 

 

So, I literally convinced my brother in law that taking Chubb #1 and hanging onto him long haul as a potential keeper would be the smartest play. I don't have Nick Chubb but the worst team in the league does, and that's not always a bad thing.

Friend was short at TE and asked who he should pick up, Swaim or Niles Paul to fill in for ASJ going on the shelf.  I said Paul.  Dude won by .2. I was afraid I was going to be de-friended if he had lost and would have won with ASJ in his lineup with a 0 then Paul with his -.3.

There are leagues that allow guys to be placed in IR slots even though they aren't officially on the IR?  Seems like a strange rule.

What's strange? Unless it was a keeper league nobody would keep a guy who goes on IR officially unless the player is coming back. Typically, they aren't coming back after being placed on IR. The IR slot is a weekly injury spot in fantasy. If a guy is ruled out for the week, for whatever reason, it allows you to make a move on your roster without having to drop guys.

Swaim was the safe pick. I would never recommend any of the Jags offense.

I've got too many hype trains on my roster:

  • Ito
  • Chubb
  • Mack
  • Barber

In addition to having Michel, White, and Crowell on my roster. Need to consolidate my talent so I can pick up a defense.

As a barber owner, never knew there was a hype train for him. He's been trash bar one game

I’m starting TWO browns in a 12 teamer with Chubb and Njoku. Only because of manny and Lindsay on TNF. Lehgetit

First time TNF has worked out for me in probably 5 years

You said you were starting two browns AFTER that TNF game.

 

Youd rather not have those stats from TNF? LIAR!

There really hasn't been that much of a hype train which is why he will perform ROS. This forum kills every player it hypes.

You're in more leagues than the rest of this forum combined. Not impressed.


I don't care to impress you Hawks. ;-)

124 teams out of 130 I'm 4-2 and above.
14 teams I am 6-0

Most of those 6-0 teams were auction

Feels good to rely soley on your gut and get rewarded. Experts? LOL.
