Re: 2017 Fantasy Brags, Beats, and Variance

I got Hunt in 9th round of my 10 man home league (ppr)

Of course I had to face him in the only other league I'm in.

I shrewdly picked up Dalton on the wire since I didn't like Rivers (my only qb) matchup tonight against DEN. But I win this matchup anyway Rams defense (28 points) plus Dalton (1 point) gave me a nice 29 point Def +QB combo

Drafted Rivers.

Benched him in favor of Bradford.

Also picked up and started JAX.

Crushed everyone.

Re: 2017 Fantasy Brags, Beats, and Variance

Had the highest score in one of my leagues this week behind Kareem Hunt (Todd Gurley and Ezekiel Elliott didn't hurt).

3rd and 7 for the Vikings; if they convert the first down the game's over.

Even with our first-down bonuses, I win as long as Dalvin Cook doesn't run for more than 24 yards.

He runs for 33.

I lose by 0.9 with the league's second-highest score this week.

One of my dynasty teams has Allen Robinson. The other has Robinson and Andrew Luck. My redraft/keeper team has David Johnson. (And my tight end was C.J. Fiedorowicz, but that might be a blessing in disguise.)

Re: 2017 Fantasy Brags, Beats, and Variance

beat: horrendous week in FBG best ball contest - bottom 1%

variance: the cutoff to advance was top 13500 teams, they had slightly less sign up, so every team advanced to Week 2
