    One TE spot:

    Cameron Brate (vs. Panthers)
    or
    Jared Cook (vs. Chiefs)

    Playing against the best team in my league and need to win to make playoffs. He has Kamara, Conner, and Hunt. Kamara put up less than 15 last night and now Hunt is done. I think the stars are aligning.

    Not to mention I was able to grab both Ekeler and Ware off of waivers in the past week!

    Was an hour late but was able to snare ware in a few leagues. For some reason already owned him a few leagues.

    Who should I start - defensive edition:

    Tenn vs Jacksonville
    Jacksonville vs Tenn
    Houston vs IND

    I think its a normal scoring system: We get 2 points for sacks, INTs, fumbles, and blocked kicks. 6 pts for TDs. Also, we get points depending on how much the opposing team scores.

    Thanks for your help!

    I think Jacksonville or Tennessee are fine options considering how bad both offenses are.

    Lost Emmanuel Sanders (after losing Gordon and Conner... brutal way to enter playoffs). Sanders was my only backup WR... need a replacement. Best on waivers are Tre'Quan Smith, Dante Pettis, Anthony Miller, Antonio Callaway, Mike Williams, Curtis Samuel, Tyrell Williams, and Taylor Gabriel. Which one? Its a standard (non-PPR) team. Thanks!

    oof...I did that Gurley / watkins trade for Sonny Michel, Conner, and Hopkins.....and lost conner this week....and Green. smh. First week of playoffs. brutal way to start them....I'm limping in.

    Which tight end should I use? Austin Hooper vs Justin Reed.....almost seems like a wash for the week.

    I’d lean towards Reeds.

    Would y’all start Rivers or Winston?

    I’m also considering starting Justin Jackson over Spencer Ware.

    Hasn’t done anything all year and Henry picks round 1 to go off.

    Probably on most benches for anyone who made the playoffs but props if you took the chance to start him

    On my bench and I needed a big performance this week to have any chance.

    I know Winston is ranked high this week, but if it was me and the playoffs I would be much more confident starting Rivers and his receivers versus a horrible defense like CIN in Los Angeles. Especially with Gordon out. Winston will be playing against NO (a much tougher defense) and in bad weather.

    I know Ware was less than expected last week (and the reality is he is no where near Hunt in that or any other offense), but he still seems to have more volume than Jackson who will share the load with Ekeler. I'd start Ware.

    He was on the bench in one league I am in and on waivers in the other.

    Unfortunately, I started Fournette, but luckily on a team that had a 1st round bye. Fortunately, the team I am playing this week also started him (also started Jonnu Smith, who got hurt on Henry's 99 yard TD).

    Traded Aaron Rodgers, a draft pick and Henry for Fournette to solidify my rbs for the playoffs since I have Conners, Leveon and Hunt on IR. Luckily, like you, I have the first round bye and dont have to kick myself....... too hard.

    I am first in all 3 leagues this year going into the playoffs. It probably has a bit to do with having P Mahomes on each team.... lol

    Yea... Mahomes and now McCaffrey are the two MVPs this year. I am first in one league (with high points too) and I have neither, but I have really good RBs (Barkley, Gordon, Connors, Mixon, Michel and Lindsey) and though I don't have any WR1s I have good WR2s. The second place team has Mahomes AND McCaffrey (and Thomas and Zeke). I will probably need luck to beat him again (beat him 153-134 week 7).

    I'm second in the other league and while I have decent RBs its really been all luck, smoke and mirrors. The team with Mahomes AND McCaffrey has the league in a headlock.

    My team with Hunt, Beckham and gordon is in a bind. Of course henry is locked on my bench.

    So my flex choice is McCoy, Coleman, or Jeffrey.

    Any advice? I am leaning towards shady's volume
