  1. I did it, had to drop Pollard, Guice, and T. Willams to make room (Mack and Tate have been in my IR). Man I hope you're right about Powell. He is the only back they'll have, I only hope the game script will support it. They could be forced to throw a lot. But Bell did do quite a bit of damage against them last time. I don't think powell is known for receiving is he? That's Montgomery.
  2. Don't start mack. Replace him with Penny. That should be good.
  3. I'm rolling with Cook and crossing my fingers. Powell over Hunt? Also Vance McDonald is available in both my leagues this week against Arizona (the worst Defense against TEs and who allowed Higbee over 20 points last week). Would you play him over Waller (vs Ten) in Half ppr or even over Ertz (vs Giants who's 3rd in least PA) in a full ppr. Also since Arizona is so bad against TEs, should I play Diggs over J. Washington since many of the plays may go to McDonald? Now mind you Diggs will get Slay the whole game, plus likely to coverage.
  4. Guice hasn't been getting targets and hunts only upside is TD snaking This feels like there's no right answer
  5. @chad72, @Jared Cisneros From Fantasy Pros: We're not likely going to know Cook's status and how much he'll play until Sunday, and even then, there's likely going to be smoke and mirrors. Cook did say he'll play in that game, but if you remember last year like I do, you remember him saying a similar sentiment before their game with the Rams where he went out and re-injured himself, then missed four weeks. ... Cook should be locked into lineups as an RB1 but if the Vikings pull out front early, he's likely finding a warm spot on the bench. Mattison is more of a play if you're betting on the Vikings blowing the Lions out in order for the Vikings to rest Cook in the second half. That's always risky to count on, though if there were one game you could rely on it more than others, it's this one. Here's my thinking: Do I think both Cook and Mattison will outscore TD dependent Hunt? If so, then should I not play both of them in my lineup over Hunt or even Guice (whos only had 4 targets through the past 3 weeks)? Heck if I had to choose just one, I am leaning towards Mattison over Cook. Typically if the Vikings are leading in the 4th, Mattison takes over. In this situation, logic dictates that Mattison will be spelling Cook throughout the game, and will likely take over entirely come 4th qtr (or sooner) if the Viking's have the lead. I know it sounds crazy, but it also makes sense.
  6. Oh it's not necessarily a fix, but rather introducing things that might improve everyone's experience (IR slots for example) or add some variety from year to year (FAAB vs standard waiver order). Just to expand people's experiences.
  7. Lol, There is no majority vote when the majority says I'm fine with everyone else! Lol. Going to need some definitives from you people lol
  8. So Guice over Hunt? Oh I am playing Washington and Adams for sure, the question is on Diggs over Thomas mostly. Winston may have been checking down, but he still got me 29 points against Atl two weeks ago. Last week they didn't need to pass. I don't feel that will be the same in this matchup as we will stop rojo and company. And you're very lucky/skillful. My full PPR league doesn't have a bye week, 14 games then straight into 4 team playoff.
  9. Ok, so updated roster for half PPR. Might have made a mistake, thought I cancelled my claim for Guice to keep Snell...I didn't. Anyways. QB: Winston vs Ind, Darnold vs Mia RB: Mattison/Cook vs Det, Hunt vs Cin (8th most points), Guice @GB (5th Most Points), Mack @TB WR: Thomas vs SF, Adams vs Was, Washington @Ari, Diggs vs Det, T. Williams vs Ten D/ST: Pit @Ari, Bal @Buf A few conundrums: Do I start Diggs over Thomas considering their matchups? ATL did just shut down Thomas, and we know what SF has been doing to receivers. Diggs killed Detroit last time. If I believe Pit will destroy Arizona, then can I believe in Washington to really score a lot of points since they would then rely on Conners/Snell? And do I attempt to get Snell back or keep Guice? lol For my Full PPR My only real question is on my receivers: Moore @ ATL, Hopkins vs Den, Washington @ ARI, Crowder @ MIA, Should I bench Moore or Hopkins for Crowder? I would lean Hopkins since Denver D is pretty good against WR (6th fewest points) @chad72
  10. LOL that's my problem. Situations like these always bum me out, but only for a short. It is a strength and a weakness that I am far too competitive in everything I do. If I start one and not the other, and make the wrong choice. It'll probably burn me up for the day. Especially with the timing of it all. But I am already preparing myself for defeat. If I play both Cook and Mattison, then my flex is between Hunt, Snell, Diggs, and Slayton/Washington. I think the highest ceiling for all of those is Washington, then Diggs, followed by Snell (If Conners is out). Slayton, to me, would be my 4th option at best, why start him? Matchup?
  11. @chad72 Absolutely wonderful...Cook says he's going to be ok to play next week. I call baloney. Now I am stuck figuring out how durable he will be and whether or not he will play on a limited snap count and split with Mattison. Which means I need to flex Mattison in order to cover myself. Absolutely perfect timing. It's against Detroit, just bench cook and start mattison and call it a day!
  12. With Cook getting injured and Diggs sucking like he always does, I barely lost. So I have to face Team 1 anyways. That guy's luck is going to continue. Even though I have Mattison, I don't feel good about the matchup. QB: Winston vs IND, Darnold vs Mia RB: Mattison vs Det, Hunt vs Cinci, Snell @Ari, WR: Thomas vs SF, Adams vs Was, Diggs vs Det, T. Williams vs Ten, Tate/Slayton @Phi D/ST: Pitt @Ari, Bal @Buf If I get James Washington @ Ari, then I will probably start him over Diggs (even though he went 7/143 against them last time) or contemplate sitting Michael Thomas who is taking on SF.
  13. Thanks for the votes. I would hate to see you out of the league. I feel your pain, as me and my wife play, that's double the buy in for me with only half the chance at winning cause she's terrible... don't tell her I said that lol.
  14. Depends on how small. I can see a $5 buy-in having 100% go to 1st. Typically in much larger leagues (in a $50 league myself). 1st place gets 50%, 2nd gets 27% ($135) 3rd place gets their money back and the remaining $65 is allocated for high scores each week ($5 for each week for 13 weeks). Could also see $40, then 2nd and 3rd get their money back, or $35, $10, $5. But typically you see winner take all in low buy-ins. Just up to the league to decide. However, I always like to see a 7/10 vote before instituting any changes.
