  1. Stefon Diggs to go off, Seattle to kick a lot of field goals, and Chris Carson to not do much.
  2. O'dell screwed me over yet again (seems like 3/4 weeks he does) and I never got the memo that Jonathan Williams would play almost no role after 30 touches and well over 100 yds + TD last week. I sat other solid options for him. Also, CMC, who has been the team anchor, finally let me down when I needed it the most.
  3. [...] For O'dell it's a combo of a few things. He's probably not as elite as everyone perceived him (more one dimensional than versatile). Baker is not as good as everybody perceived. And probably most importantly, the pass blocking sucks and Jarvis Landry is better at running shorter, more precise routes that get him open quicker. I am shocked that we haven't seen more of those ODB quick slants that he always liked to take to the house in years past.
  4. It really feels like FF is more of a crapshoot than ever. A few years ago it felt much easier to predict and know who the "studs" are, who is going to take advantage of matchups, and draft/play accordingly. This year there are just a small handful of guys you can count on every week. Most teams are offense by committee and you can almost just roll dice as to who is gonna do good or bad on a given week. Also it sucks when you have a great team but have bad luck when you just happen to run into the team that goes OFF a few weeks in a row. I have a team in a big money league with 100 more pts through 8 games than the second highest scoring team yet I would be out of the playoffs if they started tomorrow.
  5. I just can't fathom how he is treated as just one of a couple equal WRs on a run first team. Not even a 1A.....[...]
  6. He's so good but probably about the most likely player in the league to have a soft tissue injury. The problem is that he usually plays through it and is a decoy or non factor. I'd rather he just sit out and get healthy and not give you false hope that he's gonna be himself out there.
  7. I was low compared to the consensus on Mixon (due to situation/OL) a month or two ago. Now I find him falling to me at the 2/3 turn and liking the value.
  8. OJ Howard, Odell Beckham, JuJu, Christian McCaffrey, Sony Michel, Joe Mixon, Latavius Murray, Justice Hill. I'm surprised that I have as many shares of Mixon as I do because I was much lower on him early in the draft season than consensus. But he's fallen to me multiple times at the 2/3 turn and I felt I had to pounce based on volume and talent, even though I dislike the overall team situation.
  9. Good: Koerner, Boone, Ciely, Paulsen, Evan Silva, Chris Raybon, Some of the Yahoo guys (Pianowski, Behrens), Fitzmaurice, Ratcliffe. Avoid: Adam Rank, Dave Richard, Bobby Sylvester, Brad Evans (though he's bold and entertaining), Rotoworld guys after Silva left, ESPN guys for the most part, NFL network guys for the most part.
  10. I'm picking Darwin up where I can. Seems as though he's going to be the #2 behind DW. Will probably get some touches weekly with potential for big plays but if Williams goes down he could have league winning upside.
  11. I like being in the top 3 this year. Just drafted a big money league from the 2 spot and ended up with C-Mac, ODB, and JuJu. Grabbed McCaffrey and then everybody went running back heavy in the second round. Was shocked to see Odell at 19 and then Juju at 21.Then I grabbed Diggs and Josh Jacobs in rounds 3 and 4. The league I drafted from the 10 spot I felt like I was forced to make a lot of tough choices with players I didn't necessarily love. That's only my experience with two real higher dollar leagues.
  12. I could see AB being a diva trainwreck all preseason, falling in drafts, and then coming out and producing big numbers. I could also see the drama multiplying and him not playing much or struggling. A lot of tough decisions this year with guys like Brown, Gurley, Zeke, and Melvin all being so high risk/high reward.
  13. My thoughts exactly. With that OL I don't think DJ is going to have a great year rushing the ball. And I think while his passing game usage will go up from last year, I don't think it's going to be at a monstrous, McCaffrey or Barkley level like some think. With that OL there's also always the chance Kyler gets hurt and the whole team sort of goes wasteland. I think he'll probably end up a lower end top 10 RB but not a first round pick. I'd much rather take a Hopkins/Adams in the middle of round 1 and let Conner, Chubb, Bell, Mixon, or Cook fall to me in round 2. I think all 5 should be just as good or better than Johnson. One of them will probably fall to round 2 and if not you can take a OBJ if he falls, JuJu, Thomas, or Tyreek and then hit RB hard in rounds 3-5.
  14. This year I'd rather be in the top 4 or in the middle. I'd say top 7 is ideal with 3 or 4 being the best. In other years I have thought that being at the end is desirable but this year I think it hampers you. I think there is a significant drop off after the top 25 or so players and I'd rather have 3 top 25 players than 2 of the top 15 and not pick again until the early-mid 30's. I also don't like being at the turn (on either end) this year so picks 3-7 is what I hope for.
