  1. Needed to defeat my opponent last week, by any margin, to secure me a playoff spot. Guess whose entire team decided to fall down? (yup, mine) Needed that same opponent to win this week, by any margin, to secure me a playoff spot. All she had to do going into tonight's game, with Wilson and Lockett starting, was exceed projections by 5 points. Guess whose team fell down? (yup, hers)
  2. Seahawks straight-up murdering my playoff hopes tonight. I needed my team to win and a win from the team in my league with both Wilson and Lockett. My team did its part (uncharacteristically)... the other team just needed to exceed projections by 5 points tonight. That ain't happening.
  3. It's cool, not like I started Godwin because I needed the points or something 😭
  4. lol I'd been waiting all season for Jones to go down so Rodgers would be forced to throw a few touchdowns and of course it happens (albeit temporarily) the game after I gave up on Rodgers for the season.
  5. With the caveat that I haven't owned or followed any of these players this season other than Hollister, my current thinking from skimming their respective updates is Fuller. KC backfield seems tough to predict, and I've got my own question marks about Hollister against theVikings.
  6. My opponent had Everett; I had Hollister starting when Everett got ruled out, and scooped up Higbee, originally to block my opponent. Now wondering if Higbee against Arizona might be a better start than Hollister against Minnesota anyway?
  7. It's a concern for sure, but his fantasy points in games with 2-4 turnovers still tend to be better than Rodgers' output ing games with zero turnovers. Rodgers just isn't scoring touchdowns with any consistency since the Packers get so many points on the ground this season.
  8. As a fellow Rodgers owner, I agree with riding Winston. If the opposing run defense shows any sign of softness, the Packers will likely just run it down their throats and leave Rodgers as little more than a game manager (not sure what happened in the Oakland game but that seems to be the exception, not the rule).
  9. Hard to believe it's come to this, but I've owned Rodgers and Ryan all season in a 14 team league and have ZERO confidence in either of them. Who's the better play this week with a playoff slot on the line? It feels highly likely to me that GB can just overpower the Giants with the run game, and Matt Ryan has fallen down time and again in what should have been juicy matchups (and New Orleans is not what I would call juicy). Next best QB on the wire is Andy Dalton, potentially coming off a 5 week benching. Thanks in advance.
  10. Woohoo, Pascal with 0.0. This is the week where the team with the least points wins right?
  11. My earlier post about the SF DST clearly did not age well.
  12. I guess the 49ers defense wasn't a much better choice than Pittsburgh this week...
  13. So the Falcons are up 26-0 now. Who's going to run the ball to eat up clock? Hill and Ollison only have 11 carries between them?
  14. You guys sure won this thread! Thanks for steering me away from a 1FP disaster.
  15. That's a fair point. My philosophy in years past has been that playing on Thursday after a Sunday is bad news for the offense, but there's no principled reason why it wouldn't apply to the defense as well.
  16. After their performance against Arizona just two weeks ago, would folks here trust the SF DST this week in the rematch? They looked solid against Seattle despite giving up giving up 27 points, and my recollection is that they had some injured players the last game against AZ who are back now. That said, my alternative is Pittsburgh DST on Thursday, and put up darn good fantasy points last week against the Rams.
  17. I don't even know what this was specifically in reference to but since it basically sums up his last 2 weeks, I concur.
  18. Currently worse than Hoyer, who my opponent is playing.
  19. Yeah, fortunately it looks like I'll win this week despite Aaron Rodgers posting single digits again.
  20. Ugh I don't care if it's a bad call, just let me have that passing TD.
  21. That's the rub, though, right? Is Rodgers in a pitchy GB offense against Carolina a better match-up than Ryan, who has constantly been playing from behind this season and first game back from an injury, against New Orleans? I'm not sure there's a clear answer. By the numbers I think Carolina's D has been better than the Saints, but the other factors make it clear as mud.
  22. Need to figure out my QB situation this week. With Matt Ryan coming off an injury I would normally say Rodgers for sure, but after seeing how badly the entire Packers offense stunk it up last week to the Chargers, I'm not so sure. Other than in week 4 against Tennessee and against the Rams, Ryan had been pretty consistently good for plenty of garbage time points. Also, my opponent is playing both Davante Adams and Julio Jones, so either QB has the potential to feed points to the other side. (Passing TDs worth 6 points for QBs in my league, if it makes a difference. All other QB scoring settings are Yahoo standard).
