One of my leagues was a nail biter.

I'm up 3 points and I have Josh Allen going tonight. My opponent is done.

If it were you would you bench Allen? To lose I'd need Allen to fumble or throw an interception 3 times with no positive points. Total points is a tiebreaker for us, so it's low risk to lose but not impossible.

It's funny, I'm probably going to have the highest score in the league for the 2nd consecutive week.

I have Waddle, St. Brown, Aaron Jones, Dotson, etc. - I have two zeros in my line up and still will have the highest score.

Anyway, what do you think? Any discussion topics or questions with two games tonight?
I am in the same position with Allen

but i am playing him, i want the most points..

isn't worth losing out on a total points tiebreaker.

I'm up 38 with Knox vs. Allen and Davis. Knowing my luck he throws 3 TD's to Davis tonight.
I probably will too

just hate to have the improbable loss, lol.

Davis is unlikely to play, isn't he?
I am losing 108.9 to 89.0 to my opponent

I have Josh Allen & Derrick Henry tonight and he has Dalvin Cook. If Derrick and Dalvin wash & Josh has a good night, I can win. But it will be a nailbiter for sure.

thinking more and more

that Curtis Samuel pickup I made is going to loom large for me. Glad I gave him a (keeper) 3 year contract. He's leading the team in targets after 2 weeks.

I'm assuming you guys have end of season top scorer prize, right? For that alone, I would ABSOLUTELY play Allen even if you are guaranteed a win without him. Don't lose sight of the big prize for the immediate guarantee.

Questionable tag, I think he plays
I'm up 97 to 96...

with me having J.Allen and S.Diggs remaining and my opponent having D.Cook remaining. So I feel confident that I will win this week. Now, I'm hoping that my QB/WR combo puts up another monster game and I can get the highest scoring title for the second week in a row; however, one of our managers had both L.Jackson and Tua as his two QBs starting. Those two gave him 86 out of his 146 points.

Yes, most points gets paid, then 1st - 3rd.

stupid question/suggestion by me, lol

Is my MVP of the week. 20 points! My opponent has Murray and St. Brown so things weren't looking great for me, even with Herbert's performance. GG FTW
I could use  
pjcas18 : 9/19/2022 1:06 pm : link
a TE upgrade.

I have Okwuegbunam. Week 1 he gave me an ok ~8 points, week 2 a goose egg. I'm fortunate to be 2 - 0 with basically a zero in the lineup, and i think a more consistent floor would be good.

Any suggestions?

Likely waiver wire TE's:

Evan Engram. you laugh, he's caught 11 of 12 targets for 74 yards (the one target he missed was off his hands for a pick 6. - ok I made that up)

OJ Howard
Conklin
Hurst
Irv Smith Jr
Austin Hooper

that's really it, what a dead position, maybe I keep my upside players instead of dropping them for a deadbeat TE and suck it up.

What do you think?
Keep an eye on Hill  
UConn4523 : 9/19/2022 1:12 pm : link
Winston playing with breaks in his back, not really sure how long he lasts. Hill would slot in as the starter most likely and he’s TE eligible.

TE position has been the most frustrating position since last season. Even T.Kelce only got me 7 points this week. Then you have guys like K.Pitts and G.Kittle, who have been disappointing for those, who drafted them high.

E.Engram may be worth a pickup for a potential reliable floor, especially with T.Lawrence playing better. But it's all pretty much a crapshoot with TEs.

Hill was actually drafted in this league, surprising most people in the league. Turned out to be dumb luck since the guy who drafted him did so with the expectation Winston is benched for throwing picks. i don't even think Hill was TE eligible at the time.
Mike Evans has been suspended one game

Hope he can appeal as I need him next weekend.

Out of that group I like Conklin & Hurst the most. Conklin is tied for 4th in the league in targets and Hurst is 5th.
Should I drop James Cook

for Gainwell before the games tonight?
Wow, Tua and his 6 TDs saved my bacon this weekend.  
MadPlaid : 9/19/2022 4:43 pm : link
Out of my three RBs started, only one scored a TD. None broke 100 yards either. Sad.

Best
