Probably Thomas for me. Robinson out, Hurns out, Lee banged up. He's the #1 red zone option now best I can tell? And yeah I guess drop Williams.

Re: 2017 Fantasy Football General Thread

Yea Mercedes >>> everyone on that list (if he's available, grab him). Basically all of my teams suck at TE every year (unless I get Gronk), so I've got him going in a few spots.

edit: I mean Mercedes Lewis. On JAX. Not sure how well known he is (besides that London game)

Re: 2017 Fantasy Football General Thread

would appreciate some feedback on this trade i just made in a ppr league.

im 8-3 n big leader in points so decent chance at a 1st round bye.

my roster pre trade:

r. wilson
green
cooks
t hill
ingram
mixon
cook
davante
fuller
yeldon
cj fiedo
doctson
latvius

i sent doctson n latvius to a team in desperate need of a win this week for zeke.

at best he comes back for my championship week @ seattle n there is always chance he gets shut down for season if dallas isn't still alive for playoffs but seemed like a good gamble as doubtful i ever start doctson or murray anyways.


thoughts?

Re: 2017 Fantasy Football General Thread



thanks guys thought so just wanted to get some other opinions.

edit: not to brag but its a 12 team league and my starting roster is pretty much entirely the same as it was week 1.
only addition is cook at TE.

Re: 2017 Fantasy Football General Thread

Anyone sitting Prescott vs PHI if Tyron Smith is out early Sunday for Stafford @ CHI? Not a great matchup for Stafford, but if Prescott is taking 8 sacks again, I want none of the DAL O

Re: 2017 Fantasy Football General Thread

Coming into week 11's prop bet with Ash, 2 of my 3 named kickers are #1 and #2 league-wide for scoring at their position. The 3rd is 8th. Zuerlein and Butker are netting you 3.5 to 4.5 more pts per week than the average kicker. For perspective, Goatonio and Hopkins are 5 pts better than the average WR1, so it does add up.

Most of my teams are fairly average rosters carried by the sweet legs of their kickers. Only team out of the playoffs is my rebuilding dynasty.

EMBRACE THE KICKERS!





I may have to create a three kicker league where I can just go 16-0 and shower myself in 72 Dolphins glory. Anyone ever go 16-0 btw?

Re: 2017 Fantasy Football General Thread

I freely admit you were bang on with Greg the Leg and I have reaped the rewards since snagging him in 3/4 leagues when he was on his bye in week 7 or 8 or whenever it was.

Re: 2017 Fantasy Football General Thread

But kicker is so much more dependent on both coach and the rest of the team more so than any other position.

The best kicker in the league isn't guaranteed to be a worthwhile starting kicker in fantasy.

Re: 2017 Fantasy Football General Thread

you can say the same thing about any position.
Just look at Exhibit A: Antonio whenever Ben is out.
and B: Jordy Nelson without Rodgers

Re: 2017 Fantasy Football General Thread

So if Fournette ends up not playing do you guys have more faith in plugging in Yeldon, or James White vs Oakland?

Do we think it is Yeldon over Ivory?

Re: 2017 Fantasy Football General Thread

I'd probably roll White out rather than guessing which Jax RB has the good game.
