Starting J Robinson over hines ketchup would be excellent start for one.

A rob will have better days.  Hang in there

I would start with playing Jrob next week against Miami. Maybe in place of Hines.

Again. Hindsight 20 20. J Rob will be in there, but pretty hard to see this coming when the jags are +8.5 against the Colts and Titans.

Betting lines and fantasy are two separate things. Keep them that way.

And yet they are correlated. Ignoring vegas lines when tiebreaking is foolish.I expected the games to be pass heavy and non-competitive meaning more work for Thompson, which did not happen. Robinson had 1 target week 1 so I don't think that was a wrong conclusion to draw. 

If I'm wrong, I'm wrong, but I am in good company.

I agree. I didn't start him this week either but I more then likely will have him in my flex. I would also try to upgrade your qb position. Maybe Minshew or Tannehill are on your waiver wire

Minshew is (as well as Goff), but horrible luck has me starting the wrong one each week (went with goff last week and rivers this week because he also has the jets next week after another very winnable matchup versus the vikes swiss cheese pass D) 

I get the Colts may run it out on the jets, but the jets are pass funnelk who every QB will have success on. Literally can't ask for a better matchup

I can see looking at the O/U's but scoring lines/points is useless. What difference does it make if Jax is +8.5? It could be 50-40 final score - what good was that point differential? Nothing.

In Hine-sight huh? 😂

I never liked him, he will have his good games with rivers but Robinson Ingram are your guys in front of him.

You’re kidding right? There’s literally objective data showing that rbs tend to do better when big favorites are playing at home. Likewise, the data also shows rbs for big dogs tend to do worse. Why? Teams run the ball less when they are losing because they want to extend the game to catch up. The differential is factored into the implied total, which is also worth looking at.  

Notwithstanding that, the total for the game was 42.5 meaning the jaguars had an implied total of about 17 points

Yes - and we saw what happened. JRob did great, Jax scored 30 points, your whole claim got blown out of the water. 

I am all for analysis, but the "objective data" you're speaking to sounds worthless. Fantasy can't be predicted based off of past experiences. You go by skilled players and matchups. Nobody is drafting a running back based off of point spread matchups season long home versus away - that's nonsensical.

You do your way, I'll do mine. 

But I'm not the one bitching in the vent and rant thread.

Again, idk what to tell you. You clearly don't play DFS (which is effectively what making a lineup decision is) with any success otherwise you would know this. The only thing I can say is go look at the data and see for yourself that it does in fact have statistical significance.

Yesterday just was not my day. Brady had two TDs dropped and then Leonard Fournette failed to get in after catching a pass. Then Zeke had his TD taken away and Dak ran it in. And my opponent, who has a weak team, had Cam Newton, who put up 36 points. And he picked up Jonnu Smith Sunday morning to replace inactive Jack Doyle, who proceeded to score 22 points. I lost by 10. Just brutal luck. Oh, and the Packers kept DeVante Adams out as a "precaution."

i think i might like minshew better than goff or rivers. Rivers is the master of the 34-for-45 300 yard, 1 td game and Goff's just...i don't like Goff--I can't ever figure out when his good games are going to happen so I've just stayed away from him. Take a look at Minshew's upcoming schedule.

Yeah I get its easy looking (so is goff's for what its worth). I was just mainly thinking for this week. Rivers should have had a really good day, but Hilton dropped a 44 yd TD put right on his hands.

Man, I hate when the oppo is forced to make a move and the new guy blows up. Feels extra sucky.
