FF thread: 12/07/18 - Derrick Henry Thread

NYG27 : 12/7/2018 7:38 am
After Derrick Henry cracked to break more than 58 rushing yards in any game this year. Who had Henry on your bench when he rushes for 238 yards and 4 TDs?
In my league, there were two playoff games  
SJGiant : 12/7/2018 7:42 am : link
One of the other teams not in my playoff game had him on the bench. Ouch. 52 points. He did start “better “ RBs this week.
Sorry  
SJGiant : 12/7/2018 7:43 am : link
He finished with only 47.8 points
A guy in my league played him  
ZogZerg : 12/7/2018 7:48 am : link
But, because Henry sucked all year the guy in the "consolation" bracket so it didn't really matter.
was in

Henry  
Mike in NY : 12/7/2018 7:51 am : link
In the league I am in the owner started Henry, but she was by far in the consolation bracket. I am relaxing this week as my team is on a bye (useful given how banged up my team is)
To be fair  
Skully88 : 12/7/2018 7:52 am : link
Nobody saw that coming. He is on my opponents bench this week and all night that guy was whining on the league group text.

Everyone was telling him to quit bitching, he is starting Saquon, Zeke and Tarik Cohen. Nobody was benching one of them for Henry this week.

The idiots on ESPN Fantasy Live projected him with 6 carries for 30+ yards and a TD.

He'd look like a genius now if he did though...
I had 3 guys going  
dep026 : 12/7/2018 7:52 am : link
Leonard Fournette - 3 chances from the 1. Nada.
Corey Davis - drops a TD. Would had a 60 yarder if not for blatant PI
Jayron Brown - inches away from 4 sacks and dropped INT


Hope this doesn’t cost me a playoff spot.
I drafted Henry  
FJ : 12/7/2018 8:17 am : link
but cut him after about 4 weeks of nothing. Nobody ever picked him up.
Why was Henry even on your bench  
chuckydee9 : 12/7/2018 8:17 am : link
Unless you have really deep benches.. I typically play with only 4 bench spots, 5 in a league with IDP.. and in none of my leagues does anyone even have Henry.. My first half of the year sucked because of him.. I dropped him and now I am fighting for a playoff spot this weekend.. Dude is useless. That said.. I will be bidding for him..

I kept him for 7 weeks. He is still a FA in my league, and we have 2 flex positions. Shocked he's still there, as you can't even find a TE available right now..... Which leads me to my next question. Starting TE PPR Chris Herndon, Rhett Ellison, or Evan Engram?
I had Henry on 0 teams all year  
YAJ2112 : 12/7/2018 8:54 am : link
and thankfully faced him on none this week. What a pathetic display of tackling by the Jags D.

Bills have been tough on TEs lately and not sure what we're getting from Ellison/Engram this week with Evan back. Can you drop Ellison for some one else? Matt Lacosse (allstarjim's boy) or someone like that?
Advice, please.  
GP : 12/7/2018 9:13 am : link
Pick 2, 0.5 PPR.

Tarik Cohen vs LAR
Nick Chubb vs CAR
Mark Ingram vs TB
Dalvin Cook vs SEA
Austin Ekeler vs CIN

I don't want to get too cute in playoff round 1, but there are some enticing matchups. Currently I have Chubb and Ingram in the starting RB spots (with Amari Cooper also starting over these remaining RBs in the flex spot).

Thanks
GP  
beatrixkiddo : 12/7/2018 9:44 am : link
I'd probably stick with who you have in there. I have Ingram playing too, great matchup as Tampa's D is awful, and Saints will look to get Ingram going again.
Cohen is a safe play too.

I am having trouble setting my lineup at some spots:

Def: Hou or Pitt (I like Pitt vs. Oak, although it is in Oak.)
Flex: Miller or Mack (Leaning Miller as he has been hot)
WR: Hilton has been on injury list, son't have many other options though, Golladay?)
TE: Brate or Engram
Had him on my bench  
BIG FRED 1973 : 12/7/2018 9:50 am : link
I always get screwed with these Thursday night games .Either starting guys or not starting guys .Its been like that for years for my fantasy teams

Brate at TE definitely.

I think he's your boy since you had already picked him up!

I need to stream a D for semis after bye week...  
moze1021 : 12/7/2018 11:17 am : link
Currently have Pats rostered for week 16 vs Buf..but they are playing Steelers week 15 so can't start them in that one...

So for Week 15 I could go:

Buf vs Det
Det vs Buf
Atl vs Ari
Was vs Jax
Cin vs Oak
Dal vs Ind

Thoughts?
Flex spot half PPR  
Skully88 : 12/7/2018 11:25 am : link
Shady v. Jets or
Humphries v. Saints

Thanks in advance

HeftyLefty : 12/7/2018 11:44 am : link
I already am starting Luck, TY Hilton and Ebron (So very heavy Colts).

For my flex I have the option of Mack or Golden Tate (@ DAL). Would you go Mack and go with 4 colts or Tate?

Would come down to Was, Dal or Buf if Stafford's back is troublesome next week. Would want to see how they are trending after this week.

Thanks! Might add one of them now... if i pick right now then no need for waiver claim... worst case just put in the waiver claim for the better pick on Tuesday

Thanks, was leaning Humphries and it seems Winston is comfortable with him.
I would have won $100K on fan duel

last night if I had played Henry instead of Fournette. I'm bitter.

I'll have to check, but I'm pretty sure he's not available.

Oh NO THE SECRET IS OUT!!!!!!!
LaCosse  
pjcas18 : 12/7/2018 2:03 pm : link
is available in all my leagues and I think it will remain that way.

A sneakier add might be Kelvin Benjamin, of course he doesn't play TE, but he signed with the Chiefs and he's a big red zone target on a potent offense.
