Yup. People who veto for that reason are the worst.

Re: 2018 Fantasy Football General Thread

12 man ppr. I have maybe 1 more loss before I'm out of the playoff race. Would send Michael Thomas for JuJu and TY Hilton. Would move Christian Kirk to my bench. No brainer accept?

I could see doing it, but Hilton has some tough matchups coming up, unless you think Jax D just doesn't have it this season.

They haven't had it so far. Tough to play with energy when you know your QB is the worst in the league lol. Maybe Fournette will give that team some life, but who knows?

I always hate giving up the best player in the deal, but I guess the ceiling of JuJu and Hilton combined is greater than the ceiling of MT and Kirk combined. But not by much considering MT just dropped a 40 point game. But before that, he hadn't gone over 20 in 4 straight games.

I'd imagine it's probably too late for Rhino to get it done this week if it isn't already done.

Re: 2018 Fantasy Football General Thread

Certainly not a no brainer. Thomas side probably a little better on average, but I think JuJu/Hilton has more upside though, so maybe if you are desperate it's worth the gamble.

Thanks everyone. Think I'll probably hold off on the deal.

I dunno. Kirk is far from a sure thing. I think I might prefer the Juju Hilton side and Thomas is probably my WR1.

GODWIN! filtered by two best WR experts





side note: I just picked up scantling in a 12 man(nonppr), my league is ill. he cleared waivers but I'm pretty sure he was never picked up all year

Re: 2018 Fantasy Football General Thread

Steelers have 52 points at beginning of 4th quarter.

I have Antonio Brown and James Conner.

I only have two TDs

And Brown's 100 yards turned into 99 which loses me a 5 point bonus, assuming he won't be playing much the rest of the game.

Also have Cam in same league and was excited at all the Steelers points that might make him throw it a ton. And now the game is so out of hand he might be done for the game

Brown lost 3 more, so that should make you feel better.

I've had to choose between Ben and Goff since week 2 and I have 2 weeks wrong and the rest right. (unless Goff can beat what Ben did tonight)

Not a fan of yard bonus rules. I'm against Brown and Juju (in different leagues) so the less of them, the better.

Since Rosen took over, Kirk has averaged 12 and change in PPR. His game script is literally always going to be volume. He'a got Falcons, Chiefs, Raiders, Chargers and Pats to name a few of the juicy games (that's a big chunk of the worst secondaries in the NFL). His only really tough matchup might be the Lions.

I'd have no issue starting him, and I expect the back half of his season to be better than the front half.

Re: 2018 Fantasy Football General Thread

Well, the good news is that I’m playing against Cam, Car defense and Gano. They got a combined 8 points.

The bad news is that I’m a Panthers fan. What a **** show of a game.

Fair, I didn't catch that it was PPR. Changes it a bit, but I still think it is pretty damn close.

Oh well, I was the other team and he rejected it, I'll keep CMc's three touchdowns thanks

sorry pal, I knew you were specific about a week + ROS but I missed that you were hunting for a week 12 guy. Godwin probably still the choice for ROS. 10 RZ targets this year which is more than all of your guys mentioned and I think he should do better with Fitz in there opposed to Winston. snead has 22 more targets than Godwin, which is something to consider in ppr. In fact, 9 receptions ahead of Beasley in that dept., who is runner-up in catches among your list

wtf ever happened to Cobb. He's like #4 in GB now?

Re: 2018 Fantasy Football General Thread

He got old

Something that came up in the start/sit thread - given two players with roughly equal projections where you can only start one, if one starts on Thursday do you think it's beneficial to start the one that plays early given you then may be able to tweak your lineup to get higher floors/ceilings as appropriate? Or does it not matter as your opponent can then do the same?

Re: 2018 Fantasy Football General Thread

Interesting sixfour.

I guess it depends on who has choices to make.
I'm thinking about that this morning.

I played Brown and Connors last night and my opponent played Ben. This put me in a hole since Ben decided to try out some new guys for TD receptions last night.

I have 5 WRs (10 team non-ppr) and I need to bench one:
Brown (already played)
Evans
Tyreek
Kupp
Josh Gordon.

I have Kupp penciled in (as I think he has the higher floor and higher expected value), but I can see a bigger ceiling from Gordon so I might have to move him in. My decision currently is that if Gronk is out, Gordon is in. Otherwise stick with Kupp.

I am also actually considering benching Evans which seems bad, but he is banged up and not sure on how the gameflow will be there.

I feel like yard bonus leagues are just an extreme way of playing without decimal scoring. Which I find ironic as most people will scoff at non-decimal scoring.

Re: 2018 Fantasy Football General Thread

I joined this league about 10 years ago, they had been going for 5-8 years prior to that.

I already got them to go away from standard scoring to PPR, and from integer scoring to decimal scoring. Those were more important changes than the bonuses IMO.
