That is what usually happens, but simply being bigger doesn't mean you are better in those spots. Being smaller actually has some advantages since holes are going to be smaller.

True but bigger can push the d line back more

Re: 2018 Fantasy Football General Thread

D linemen are 300+ pounds. An RB weighing an extra 15 lbs isn't going to make a difference. goal line TDs aren't scored because an RB knocked back a D lineman. They score them because O linemen created a hole or by jumping over the line.

The only consolations I'll take from tonight is that I'm only against AJG in 1/3, and that I was somewhat correct in saying Mixon wouldn't go off.

10 Team Standard.

Someone offered me Joe Mixon & Trey Burton for Stefon Diggs & Emmanuel Sanders.

Here is my team:



Thoughts?

I want more back in return. Burton might be good, but did nothing in week 1 and sanders went off. You can negotiate for more than that.

Tough one. Try to give up Ajayi instead of Diggs if possible maybe? Add in AP or Lindsey if it helps idk, guy prob doesn't need RB help if he made this offer.

Also having Luck in over Mahomes is killing me...but I'll just assume it's some kind of psychological trick you're playing on your opponent

I'd stand pat with that team. You have solid depth and that kind of guts your WR core for not that much starting lineup improvement.

Re: 2018 Fantasy Football General Thread

I do that deal in a 10 teamer real quick even without Burton. You can find a WR on the WW pretty easily in that format.

Re: 2018 Fantasy Football General Thread

8 team, ppr, qb/2rb/3wr/flex with 3 keepers, I have:

Gurley, Bell, Hyde, J. White, AP, McKinnon
K. Allen, D. Adams, Landry, Agholor, C. Davis, Lockett

His team:
Conner, Miller, Fournette, Royce, P. Barber, J. Williams
Diggs, Juju, DT, Tate, Hogan, Ginn, M. Jones

I'm thinking of trading Gurley for Conner and Fournette (Conner can be kept for $15 out of $300). Should I do it, should I ask for more as he isn't that high on Fournette or should I just stay put?

Thanks.

1. Do you feel Conner plays this whole season? And if you are trading to get him for next year then
2. Would you keep him over Fournette K.Allen or D Adams?

Re: 2018 Fantasy Football General Thread

Who you guys drop in a ppr keeper league?

Geronimo, Chubb (who would be a 4th round keeper), Sony Michel (who would be a 5th round keeper), Hogan (who was one of my keepers, lol).

Thinking Geronimo, but hate to do it.

I never played in a keeper league so far (neither auction for that matter) so this keeper thing is new to me and I figured I should keep guys that could be kept at a good price.
I don't know if Conner plays the whole season, but next year I'll have the Steelers starting RB for $15 which is great value imo. I spent $76 on Bell and he can be kept for $88 for the record. Also for this year I can always start the Steelers RB whoever that might be. Of course when Bell comes back it might just be a RBBC which will screw me lol.

I drop chubb. I think hyde and duke have multiple years left on their contracts so they likely aren't going anywhere and currently chubb is the #3 RB on his own team.

Full Disclosure: I am a GB homer that likes geronimo and thinks cobb and adams are overrated.

Re: 2018 Fantasy Football General Thread

During about the third quarter last night I dropped John Ross and picked up Geronimo Allison. Just doesn't seem like Ross is gonna be a key part of that offense with all the looks Boyd got. Allison probably should have already been taken but I like him better right now as an upside flyer resting at the end of my bench than Ross.

Looks good in redraft. He was just a dart throw. Looks like he missed for now. Dalton hasn't even targeted him deep down the field yet.

Re: 2018 Fantasy Football General Thread

12 team .5PPR
1qb,2rb,2wr,1te,1flex

matty ice
barkley, ajayi, dion lewis, kerryon, yeldon
AB, josh gordon, crowder, lockett, jordy, ryan grant, kelvin benjamin,
njoku

I was leaning towards dropping benjamin and yeldon to pick up a kicker & geronimo (Brandon marshall & nyheim hines are also FAs). Does that sound right?
