NFT: Fantasy Football 10/11

davek3698 : 10/11/2017 11:11 am
I need some QB advice. My #1 (Wilson) is on bye, and my backup is Eli. Looking at the top projections of those available in my league this week per NFL Fantasy are Bortles, Keenum, McCowen, Sieman, Hogan, Flacco, Brissett, Hoyer, Trubisky and Cutler. This would only be a one week fix for me. Should I just stick with Eli, or would you recommend one of these guys? Thanks..
Same hereim going with Brisett  
superspynyg : 10/11/2017 11:15 am : link
for me it was a toss up between Seimian and him. So I know that points wont be plentiful but since Brissett can run that swayed me.
No chance in hell you play Eli this week  
knicks3031 : 10/11/2017 11:27 am : link
There's a better chance of them getting shutout than there is Eli throws a TD
Agreed.

I just pulled off a trade in keeper. This is a sensitive one. With already Dalvin Cook in my IR spot, having just lost OBJ, I just traded OBJ and an 8th round pick for a first round pick next year and his extra kicker he had just so I can make the players even...will drop the kicker as soon as trade processes. I could've kept OBJ another two seasons, but I needed the roster flexibility with so many injuries.

I now have two first rounders, and my opponent's team is not good, I reasonably expect to get the first overall pick in the draft (after 5 rounds of keepers).

There is not a player to be drafted that will give you anywhere near Beckhams production next season. You traded a top 5 overall player for a rookie unknown.

In one of my 12 team leagues, I am carrying these RB's...

Gurley, Hunt, McCaffrey, Cohen, Coleman, McKinnon, Mack

Safe to say I can afford to deal one of these guys for a little WR depth. Right now my WR's are AJ, Diggs, Hogan and Funchess. All solid options - but there's no need for me to carry 7 RB's and only 4 WR's.

So.. question is. Which one of these RB's do I try to deal?

There's a team that had Cook, has Montgomery and has virtually no RB's left to use beyond Duke Johnson. He has Pryor/Amendola.. I figure I can pry one of those two away from him pretty easily with one of my back end RB's.

I kind of asked this last week but that was before I had McKinnon and Mack.

Only other idea would maybe be to try to grab a TE from someone.. all I have is Engram. But I think he'll suffice until the bye week.
I need advice streaming a DST this week  
FranknWeezer : 10/11/2017 11:52 am : link
Here's the order in which I've ranked the available DST's in my league. Who would you go with?

GB at MIN
DET at NO
TB at ARIZ
TEN v IND
LAC at OAK

holy shit that's terrible. Do teams in your league have two D/STs?

Maybe the Chargers in Carr's first week back get some sacks. Otherwise TEN?

Sell High on Mckinnon. You don't need a superstar wr you have 4 great options but Mckinnon's value is at its height
Which RB

would you rather have Tarik Cohen or Marlon Mack? PPR league.

both would be 8th round keepers (though realistically neither would be kept).

Interesting - I was leaning more towards trying to sell off Coleman or even Cohen.

I have never ever liked Latavius Murray. (Full disclosure, I went against my gut and wasted $26 of my budget on him in the BBI league.. but I was smarter in my other two and opted for McKinnon.. )

I think McKinnon is legit. He's a great athlete, he can catch out of the backfield, he has breakaway speed. I think he's the back to own in Minnesota easily and will be on the RB2 map most weeks.

I could do McKinnon for Pryor. I think you might be able to get a little more for McKinnon right now from the right team, but Pryor would be sufficient enough considering your particular situation.

I'd go with one of Brissett, McCown, Siemian, in that order. I like Siemian more long term but not just for this week.

arcarsenal : 10/11/2017 12:16 pm : link
Thanks, guys - odds are whichever RB I deal would spend the rest of the year on my bench anyway unless I really get hit by injuries. So it's probably more important to just improve my WR depth a bit.

Haha, I don't know if I'd say that - Murray looks like he's going to be taking a back seat to McKinnon and Smallwood is hurt. Leaves me with Hunt, Martin and Duke Jr.

I suppose that's quite a bit better than what you have to work with after all those injuries, though.

Roger Lewis Jr or Mike Wallace.. who would you rather have as a bench WR?

Wallace has come alive the last 2 games and looks like he may be back on the WR3 radar but his upside is capped. Lewis is probably looking at volume by default but what he does with it is anyone's guess and the Giants are a complete mess.

Congrats on the win by the way, glad it no longer carries the stigma it would have earlier in the year.

Depends on the rest of my WR corps. If I feel good about my starters, I might lean towards Wallace and just go with him as a decent bye week fill in. If I felt I needed more upside, I'd go with Lewis.

Haha, thanks - yeah, losing to me isn't quite as embarrassing as some of these shit talkers would have had you believe.

(Hi, dep!)

FWIW - the WR's I'm carrying on the team I asked about Wallace/Lewis are Jordy, Keenan Allen, Hilton and Theilen. So, I have a formidable 4 there but the only other WR on my bench is Jaron Brown who looks like he's not worth carrying so I'd rather add a guy who I could use in a pinch or as a bye week filler when necessary.

Well I like Cohen the least. I just think McKinnon's value is highest right now.

I like Cohen more as a player but I think Mack may provide more value as the season wears on - especially if Luck has a shot at returning.
Regardless

Yeah, I agree. I think Cohen is a threat every time he gets the ball, but Mack probably gets the ball more and more as the season goes on. There was a time I thought Cohen was in line to get a big bump in carries, but it looks like Howard has kept him at bay with solid running. Even if he can't catch.
Cohen may be a weapon  
SimpleMan : 10/11/2017 1:03 pm : link
but Howard has come on strong, and Cohen is actually getting a lot of his snaps taken by Cunningham. He is not start-able at this point. Unless he breaks off a big play he does not have enough volume.
I'm tired of Wilson

I wouldn't.

As long as Anderson is healthy, Charles won't be more than a change of pace guy.

Mack has a lot more upside.

JoeMoney19 : 10/11/2017 1:28 pm : link
I lost DJ and and Cook and also blew it on my Crowell pick so I've been scrambling big time to find a break out RB. I got McKinnon before he blew up last week but I'm still hoping somebody like Mack or Collins start getting a lot more touches. I finally moved on from the Giants DST this week too :( rough year for me haha.
I want to pick up Mariota, but  
VenteSette : 10/11/2017 1:29 pm : link
Duke Johnson seems tough to cut.

Who do I dump?
RB: Mixon, Gilislee or Duke
I still have Hunt, Shady and CJ Anderson. I guess I could dump a WR, Cooper, Landry and Watkins aren't doing much and I have Evans, Jeffery and Pryor. I need a QB for Stafford's bye. I thought a 10 team league would be easier, but there is too much out there.

On the bright side I am 5-0 and nobody else is better than 3-2. I have most points for (thanks Hunt and JagsD), but my point totals have been middling most weeks.

I have Fuller and I'm hanging onto him unless I get a very good offer. Scoring on 66% of his targets is obviously unsustainable, but I expect additional targets and yards to start balancing out the TD regression. Watson has looked far better than Goff.

I think Fuller offers considerably more upside than Kupp.

Obviously not amazing options, but I'd go with Carolina too. Short week as mentioned and Lane Johnson is out with a concussion, which is a real blow to the Eagles offense. Smallwood also seems unlikely to play.

Absolutely not.

Funchess is coming into his own right now and is seeing as many targets as anyone on the team, especially with Olsen out.

Roethlisberger hasn't been good at all and Shepard is in a walking boot and playing for a completely dysfunctional team.

I'd much rather have Funchess right now.
