FF 11/8 - Happy Friday!

RC in MD : 11/8/2019 9:01 am
In my .5 PPR league, I need RB2, WR2, and FLEX:

Todd Gurley @Pitt
Jaylen Samuels vs. LA
Kalen Ballage @Ind
Robert Woods @Pitt
Calvin Ridley @NO
Greg Kittle vs. Sea

I didn't use Kittle for my TE since I just traded for him and he won't be available until tomorrow morning. Instead, I used Hunter Henry as my TE.

Also, after lackluster performances by both Aaron Rodgers and Daniel Jones, I'm going with Aaron Rodgers vs. Car instead of Jones @NYJ although I'm sure whichever choice I make would be a mistake...lol.

My RB1 is Dalvin Cook (Leonard Fournette has a bye), and WR1 is Cooper Kupp (DeAndre Hopkins has a bye).
I'm just hoping

Kittle is active. They are taking his dings more seriously this week. Pretty hairy waiting until Monday night on your TE spot.

I didn't hear about Kittle's injury. However, thankfully, I don't need Kittle to play TE for me this weekend, so I can plug in someone else as a FLEX (which I was hoping to use Kittle for).

And reason why I put Samuels up there is because both Connor and Edmunds are hurt with Connors being ruled out already.
I'd go

Gurley, Samuels, Ridley, Kittle
last night was a roller coaster  
UConn4523 : 11/8/2019 9:16 am : link
I was playing against Eckler, who was quiet all game after the 1st quarter until that TD that happened the play after Gordon left with what looked like a concussion.

luckily I had Jacobs going and what looked like a very bland performance turned into a really nice day on the TD run.

I really need the win this week - in 5th (top 4 teams make playoffs) against the 4th place team. Just had some really bad luck this year as I have most points scored by a pretty good margin yet I hit everyone on their top weeks to start the year, going 0-3 in the process.

Last night's game was a huge game for my opponent in another league, as he had four players in it: Melvin Gordon, Darren Waller, Hunter Henry, and Matt Badgley. I had Keenan Allen and Mike Williams.

Right now, he's projected to kill me...lol.
Quick question for you guys..  
Drewcon40 : 11/8/2019 9:25 am : link
I have 2 QBs, Brady and Brissett. The guy I am playing had a higher waiver and nabbed Hoyer (he has Dak and Derek Carr) which is totally fair but now I may not have a QB

Waiting to see if Brisett is healthy

Available QBs:
Mitch Trubisky
Baker Mayfield
Mason Rudolph
Ryan Fitzpatrick
Ryan Finley
and...
Sam Darnold (who according to other threads here is going to light it up this week).

So if you bear with me (<- correct usage?)

The guy I am playing has Mike Evans.

Should I trade for Winston (who is on another team)?

Would Brissett straight up for Winston be a fair trade (he has Lamar Jackson).

Just to lessen the confusion - the guy who owns Winston is NOT the guy I am playing.
I try not to get cute in fantasy  
UConn4523 : 11/8/2019 9:28 am : link
I see your strategy with Winston "negating" Evans' points but in reality, it just doesn't matter. Pick the QB you think will score the most points.
Thanks UConn

Hopefully Brissett is good to go.
Still reeling from my Monday night

miracle loss. I was up 10.7 at the end of the Giants game. One the play where Dallas scored at the end my opponent had Dallas D. They got 1 for the sack plus 3 for it being the 5th sack which has a bonus in our league, 2 for the fumble recovery and then 6 for the TD. A 12 point play with 6 seconds left and I lost by 1.3

I never play with bonus points. Just adds more arbitrary luck to something that already has too much luck to begin with.
i'm having a hard time with my final Flex  
UConn4523 : 11/8/2019 12:21 pm : link
current starters are in a .5 PPR are:

QB - Wilson
2WR - Jones, Cupp
2RB - Carson, Chubb
TE - Herndon
2 FLEX - Jacobs (played last night), Samuels
DEF - Baltimore
K - Zuerline

Tate is next on the list at FLEX and I just can't bring myself to put him in even though I want to. With Connor out and everyone else at RB banged up I just can't sit Samuels, he gets too many targets. Am I wrong for that?

UConn  
Drewcon40 : 11/8/2019 12:39 pm : link
I think I would go Samuels over Tate - Tate might have a good day against the Jets banged up secondary but Samuels will get his touches. Tate may draw some attention and Slayton could get a piece of action.

Personally I would go Fitzpatrick.

I don't like Mayfield against the Bills' defense, and I would stay away from Trubisky at all costs (I just dropped him in my 2 QB league because I'm fed up with him losing me games every week).

Fitz is on the road against the Colts which is not an easy matchup but he at least offers the potential of putting up respectable fantasy numbers based on his history the past 2 seasons. The Dolphins often end up playing from behind and can barely run the ball (have literally no quality RBs and recently traded Drake) so they often end up in situations where Fitz is throwing a whole lot. Sure it results in interceptions and whatnot but at least the volume is there to put up respectable fantasy output. Plus their receivers are actually not half-way bad and they're playing in a dome.

Thank you Leg of Theismann. That's a great point - even with Preston Wilson out for the season?
Jared Cook vs ATL or Greg Olson @GB  
Heisenberg : 11/8/2019 3:10 pm : link
DK Metcalf @SF, AJ Brown vs KC or Tyler Boyd vs BAL

And Pick two of:
David Johnson @TB
Todd Gurley @PIT
David Montgomery vs DET
Aaron Jones vs CAR

Thanks in advance!
