  1. I dont usually ask for help here, but I need this win to make the playoffs. Ingram has a tough matchup against the 49ers but Damien is out for KC. Though that could open the door for the other Williams so I'm completely perplexed. Any suggestions?
  2. Sitting at 4-4 in a 14 team league. 7th place and top 6 make the playoffs. I go up against the first place team who is 6-2. Teams 2 through 6 are all 5-3. I destroy the first place team but every 5-3 team wins. Sucks having the 3rd most points in the league and sitting on the outside with each week a must win. I have well over 100 more points than the 6 seed, too, but dude keeps winning like 85 to 83.
  3. I have Cooks and my entire team scored 64 points, lol. Still would have won had I started Murray over Singletary.
  4. What are you talking about? How can you say he hasn't been good if he's averaging 5.4 ypc? I get the limited number of carries but it would be much more accurate to say he's played well but hasn't had a huge role.
  5. [...] If it weren't for the Bears I'd be confident firing him up. But I saw the Bears shut down Cooks without Hicks. Then the week after they get punched in the mouth by Jacobs without Hicks. I kinda think the Bears defense want to prove that game against Oakland was a fluke so I'm leaning towards sit.
  6. 26, 10, 28, 30, 19, 31. That's how many points opposing defenses have scored against KC this year. Meanwhile, McManus was averaging 10 a game. Thought I was safe for 7 to 10 points.
  7. Not that I hope for injuries, but Mahomes going down really helped me as I was projected to lose by 20 and he fell 20 short of his projected. But McManus made sure that wouldn't hold up.
  8. Ok that makes more sense. But the person who started this originally stated he doesn't start a kicker "most weeks." Post 2 of this thread. But I understand the logic now.
  9. I'm not quite understanding your math or your logic. So if you have a roster full of undroppable players, you're going to drop a kicker for a potential one or two week replacement, as is the case in the Gurley example you cited? And since your team is loaded with studs, you're purposely leaving points off the board for a player you're not even starting? Now to the math. How is not rostering a kicker costing only 1.4 points a week? Even at the low end a kicker will average 5 points a week. Obviously every game isn't close, but in my 14 team league this week 2 games were decided by 5 points or less and in my 12 team league another 2 games were. So if you don't have a kicker and lose because of it, you're flat out costing yourself a win. Wins equal playoffs. Now the poster who has been most vocal about this strategy stated he won by over 100 points. If that's the case, then sure, go for it. But I question the competitiveness of his league if he's winning by that much on a consistent basis.
  10. Lol. I told myself I was done after the last post but then you put this. Basically admitting that every point counts but you don't need them throughout the season because every team makes the playoffs.
  11. I think you mean 3 out of 5 weeks. But I digress. You do you and have fun. That's what it's all about. But I dont think you'd have success in more competitive leagues. Not saying you guys dont compete, just that 10 team leagues, imo, aren't overly competitive because every team has studs, studs are on ww so injuries dont affect you as much, etc. Add in 8 teams make the playoffs. Every point counts in 14 team leagues with 6 playoff spots. Again, have fun. Nobody is mad or butthurt or anything.
  12. I don't know if you're trolling or what. Nobody can understand what you mean because every page your story changes. At first you rarely use them. Then later you mention 80% of the league makes the playoffs. Then say you used a kicker the first few weeks, which so far, equates to 60% of the season (the opposite of rarely) and to top it off, you fail at reading comprehension by proclaiming I love kickers even though I stated numerous times I don't. I'll make you a deal. Download kik. My name is mest08. It's a free messenger app, no phone number needed. If a spot opens up in my 14 team redraft league next year, I'll buy you in. If you finish in the money, you keep the earnings and I revisit this thread a year from now and and say you were right. If you're team sucks, you do the same. Only rule is you can't play a kicker all year. There's literally no risk involved for you. Arguing with someone who changes their story every other post is pointless. Put your pride where your mouth is.
  13. And I play .5 ppr. And some people play standard. It's almost like you care only about yourself and your league and don't care about other people's. Not to mention the fact that your first post states you rarely use a kicker but by page 3 you changed it to you used Zane or whatever his name was for 3 weeks. We've played 5 weeks and you used a kicker at least 3 of them that you admitted but are advocating not using a kicker. So which is it.
