For some context, I have the highest PA and have 104 more that the least PA. I’ve lost 2 by under 10 pts. 

 

Needed 21 from Odell tonight. Talk about ups and downs. Missed that gl opp early. Then had some big catches at the end. Was down by 0.2 after they scored the 2nd to last TD. They decide to go for 2 and try for him. Terrible throw, but still one he should have had and usually does. Shepherd catches that big chunker which limits his opps to get the catch I need. Then Eli tries to sneak it 2 times in a row and doesn’t make it. Then he get the TD with 5 seconds left! 

 

I needed that. It’s been a rough year. Thanks Odell for producing like a 1st rounder.

Gave up on Royce today.  Baldwin was dropped & I couldn't talk myself out of it. Really though I stole an RB2 when I drafted him late but it just never really worked out. First the Lindsey takeover, the offense not really flowing, now the dreaded high ankle sprain so probably out this week, next week vs HOU then a bye, I made the move.  Not happy about it but couldn't turn down Baldwin for free.

I can understand, I took him as my 3rd RB, and I thought I'd have my FLEX covered all season. Haven't dropped him yet, but he is probably next off if there's a hot add

Some dude in my league dropped Melvin Gordon for Jalen Richard in my league. Roster space is not an issue given the fact that he has 2 DST and 2 kickers on his roster. WTF?  Seriously dumbfounded....

Traded some of my team’s depth to shore up my team’s starting lineup. In the process I lost both Chubb, and Johnson. But I got Ertz for TE, and have Gordon, CMC, and Michel to roll out.

 

 

Anyways I lost some fun players in the process. But in the past 24 hours I have picked up Ronald Jones, Jalen Richard(full ppr), and Tre’quan Smith.

 

 

Sitting at 6-1 I’m feeling good. Just gotta hope one of ^ hits, and I can upgrade my 3rd wr behind Julio/Hilton.

I know how it works. When you're watching your FF scoreboard live, your score goes backwards, while the oppo racks up the points. I know this immutable law. So tonight, for the nth time, I vow that I won't look, because I'm forced to roll Osweiler out as bye week cover, and the oppo has Lamar Miller. I'd probably take 10pts from Osweiler and be happy with it. 

 

But I can't resist.

 

And I take a peek. it's 7-0. But it's a rushing TD. And the ball is on the Miami 2. And you all know what happens next.

This week. My oppo is the High Commissioner of the league and is the only one at 7-0 in a 20-teamer. I'm 2-5 in the same division. A s---y Thursday night, but my Antonio Brown goes off first half. I took the risk of putting the Bengals D against his Jameis Winston and it pays off! Cruising...

 

72-yard Mike Evans TD.

 

The other guy is having an absolutely blessed season.

 

Well hot damn.

 

We're watching the 4/4:25 games. I have David Johnson, Kittle, Jalen Richard, Cory Littleton (IDP). He has Cooks and Kirk. My guys get some points on the board, but I'm just sitting there waiting for the inevitable long TD from either Cooks or Kirk. Or both. I'm well ahead, and there's not much time left. Suddenly Goff is forcing the ball to Cooks, and then Kirk gets a tuddy. Everyone's preparing for the late Cooks TD. When Montgomery fumbled I damn near walked out of the house.

 

Thank goodness they didn't try anything silly. Now I'm 3-5 - still alive - and the High Comm's 7-1. Feels good.

Picked up Jared Cook last Monday because Ertz is on bye week 9. Gronk's (inexperienced) owner dropped him for C.J. Uzomah, so I made my waiver claim to pick up Gronk and let Cook go. Got Gronk. Cook gets picked up a few days later from the waiver wire by someone else. Uzomah puts up a goose egg yesterday, and is on bye this upcoming week 9.

 

Today, I get a trade offer from Gronk's original owner wanting him back in exchange for Uzomah. This may be the worst trade offer in the history of fantasy football given my situation and needs. How can this person possibly think I'll do this, especially during a playoff chase with money on the line? It's just not my job to rescue other owners from thoughtless decisions. This same owner dropped Mixon and Kupp when they got injured earlier this season, and of course I picked them up (dropping relatively useful players in the process). There needs to be a strategy primer or something for novice FF players in these Yahoo leagues.
