Re: 2018 Fantasy Football General Thread

Is there a passing stat where "Get Rick Mitch" isn't near last? I dunno how Burton thrives there. Arob is surviving in PPR but in standard he's near worthless too. I think Arob in standard is something like the 50th ranked WR. No idea what the hope for Burton is.

Bears destroyed themselves taking Mitch over the other 2 QB's from that class. And it's a shame because they'd be SB contenders with either other QB at the helm.

Re: 2018 Fantasy Football General Thread

Who to start out of Alex Collins and Theo Riddick this week? (standard)

Feel like Collins gets 4pts and Riddick has a big game

PPR
In a vacuum would you prefer Sony Michel or Josh Gordon as an upside end of the bench stash?

I'd prefer Michel. He's a RB, he doesn't have the implode potential, NE spent a first rounder on him. But I'd cut Allison and Barber to hold both.

What do you guys think about my offer of Drake, Landry, Godwin and Hunter Henry for Mixon/Gio and Cooks in dynasty?

Re: 2018 Fantasy Football General Thread

If he takes it thats a nice deal for you. You'd be getting the 2 best players in the deal, or at minimum 2 of the top 3.

If I'm the other owner I turn it down without any hesitation and keep Cooks/Mixon.

Yeah, I think it's a fair offer though. He doesn't have much depth at WR beyond Beckham and Cooks, and his TE is Hooper. I do feel that I'm higher on Drake and Landry than most. I like all the players I'm offering him, which is why I've traded for all of them in the past month. But I really like the upside of Mixon and Cooks. Will probably get turned down, but I think it gives me a shot. I was thinking of offering Drake, Landry and Guice, but I didn't want to go that far yet.

Re: 2018 Fantasy Football General Thread

was just offered Landry straight up for Edelman in ppr; thoughts? 3wr/flex league my WRs are: Adams, Cooks, J Brown, Baldwin, Edelman

edit: doesn't sound like he would do the trade today, so I wouldn't be able to start Landry over John Brown this week and would still eat another week of Edelman's suspension - not as appealing now but still seems close

Re: 2018 Fantasy Football General Thread

In PPR league this week I’m playing Riddick as my second RB so I sure hope you’re right. Bench: Williams @WAS (and in general), Buck Allen (vsDEN)and Yeldon. Dropped Wilkins 🧐

If I had Collins I might be worried more about his workload, but who knows...

Second league I am kinda screwed and desperate.

I proposed a bunch of trades and got these counters - anyone accept any of these?

Team #1
QB - Goff
RB - Gurley, Henry, Gio, White, Mack
WR - Hopkins, Thielen, Sanders, Crabtree, Lockett, John Brown
TE - Graham

Was offered Adams + either Breida or Burkhead for Hopkins


Team #2
QB - Smith, Dalton
RB - Zeke, Henry, Barber, Morris
WR - Hopkins, Adams, Crabtree, Crowder, Moore, John Brown
TE - Graham

Was offered Rudolph, Bernard, Cooper for Hopkins

Team #2 I was offered Cooper, Jones, Williams (GB RBs) for Adams.

I should probably grit my teeth and take that, no?

Re: 2018 Fantasy Football General Thread

I'd pass. It doesn't really help your RB situation much, wastes a roster spot, and Adams is obv >> Cooper.

Re: 2018 Fantasy Football General Thread

for team2 - Drop Dalton and pick up some RB waiver timeshare / lotto ticket. It's a 10-team YPL with 15 man rosters; surely there are decent RB options available.


(You should prob drop one of your marginal WRs too for a waiver RB - or try to package 2 of them in some trade - I hate rostering 2 BAL WRs)

Tough spot, but I guess I'd drop Royce here.

Ha I basically had it narrowed down to Burkhead vs Freeman.

Agree on Burkhead

I like Burkhead, but they spread the ball around so much in NE, it really caps his ceiling.

I'd go Royce. He hasn't had one target this season AND Lindsay is out performing him.

But I agree, Burkhead would be the other option .

Re: 2018 Fantasy Football General Thread

I'm team Rex because he has a high ceiling attached to a great offense. Freeman does have the higher floor, but Rex has proven he can be a valuable asset while Freeman has done anything but. Lindsay just looks better. Apparently has since camp. Michel's coming off an injury.

He definitely has a higher ceiling, and I don't really think Freeman has a higher floor. I think their floor is about the same using the first two games as evidence.

And the game script didn't favor Rex against Jax. That is unlikely in most games.

Burton will have a few good games, but I'm not sure I like his every week value.

I have already picked up Dissly, but I still kept Burton.

Is Burton worth dropping for any of these other guys?

Howard

Hooper

ASJ

James

I kind of like James the most out of those guys, with Howard close behind. But I'm still not sure I like any of them more than Burton, even with Burton's first two weeks.
I completely agree and when coupled with the focus on ARob and the low ceiling for the offense overall (along with Howard being legit and game scripts in his favor), there just aren't enough touches and TDs to go around. They're manufacturing touches for Taylor Gabriel as well.

I'm going with OJ, they throw all day and Jameis likes him too, and he's got crazy skills. Hooper and Burton get more targets, but only Hooper might do something with them imo.

I also feel like I'll be able to reacquire Burton if Trubes starts acting like a real QB.
