2018 "Cool Story, Bro!" Thread

Two things that give you a slight warm feeling:

 

1. Picking up a player as a FA just before the WW frenzy. Recent exhibit - MVS.

2. Fretting for ages about dropping a player because you know somebody's gonna pick him up and he's going to explode.. Then he goes unclaimed on waivers.

I sometimes run into this situation... My roster is so freaking good that I can't enjoy the "hype train" players because I don't have room to start them...

 

Right now, I'm stuck with a decision each week between Boyd, Sutton, Michel, and Marvin Jones for my FLEX play... When you have Mixon, Conner, AB and M Thomas, it's an embarrassment of riches...

I hear you I traded away Cooks and Jeffery for OBJ because the "Embarrassment of riches" issue.  Now every week I have to start 2 rb, 2 wr, 1 flex and I get to choose between Conner, Mixon, Dalvin, OBJ, Keenan and Boyd.  I needed to limit my margin for choosing the wrong player.  Drafted Lev Bell #3 overall and it didn't hurt me.  Made more trades in this league than I ever had to wind up with this roster.

I am or let's say I was in the same situation.

 

I had Ryan, Zeke, Mixon, Conner, Kerryon Johnson, Chubb, AJG, Diggs, Ridley, MVS and Ertz.

 

I decided to get rid of the "worries" of Conner and packaged him with KJohnson and Ridley to get Micheal Thomas and Dalvin Cook. I got bamboozeled for that trade in the Conner thread, but I didn't really care. I prefer(ed) the safe Micheal Thomas in my Flex for the playoffs than Conner where anything can happen.

 

It was a rough two weeks with the byes and the AJG and Diggs injury, but I still am undefeated with 9-0.

 

After this last "bye week"-week I will go with Ryan, Zeke, Mixon, Diggs, Thomas, Ertz, Cook/Chubb and that's the only decision I will have to make. No more Ridley or Conner scoring 40 on my bench. It sucks seeing Conner scoring 30, but I loved seeing thomas getting 40.

battle for best record/most points scored on the season .... my esteemed opponent blessed my arse by starting the J-E-T-S JetsJetsJets! "defense" - negated his Kamara/Jones backfield - i lead by 16 heading into tomorrow night - my Barkley vs his Breida.

After a bit of a mess of a season, it's nice to finally be able to relax and enjoy a Monday night game. In a 20-teamer, I'm now 4-6, but three of those four victories have been against the top scorer (by a mile), the second-top scorer (also by a mile), and the guy who's currently 8-1 (his game is still up in the air this week). It's a season of "could-have-beens", but I've definitely enjoyed this FF week, saw the Browns looking good and I have Kittle to do my victory lap tomorrow night.

Down by 2.5 going into SNF with his Zeke vs my Ertz remaining (1 pt PPR). I get the win 177.18 to 175.82. Passed the lead back and forth a few times during the game...I may need a bye week to recover from this roller coaster ride.

 

Bonus cool story bro for the cool story bro...I started the Jets D over Washington D in this one and put up -3 pts instead of 17 pts. 99 times out of one hundred I'd be posting in the vent and rant thread instead!

I have Roethlisberger and Chubb, yay. I left Fournette and Ebron on my bench, nooooo. My opponent has CMC and Trubisky, boooooooooo! It’s such a cool story in a very tragic way. Maybe I’ll be back with a good ending tomorrow. I need 28 points from Barkley. Cautiously optimistic.

Left Chubb 36pts, Aaron jones 32 pts and Allen Robinson 31 pts all on my bench still going to win... the rbs I started were Barkley mixon and Mack and wrs Ridley josh Gordon and Golden Tate.. safe to say if I played any other team probably would have lost since those players didn’t do crap this week

I still am outside the playoff hunt by a game because i made dumb horrible streaming decisions weeks 1-3 but i am going to win this week by 80 points depending on what barkley does even though I sat aJones and fournette. Having options is not always a good thing.

"OUCH" strategy: streaming Jets D to play a pathetic Bills offense which has a QB that was thought to have retired 5 years ago...for a nice minus 6 total! <_<

"WHAT?" strategy: Getting Fitzmagic in your lineup, he throws for over 400 yards...and the team scores 3 whole points???? :rolleyes:

 

I don't have either...but was feeling for those that do.
