    Waller looks solid. Him and tyrell seemingly are the top go to options on the outside. Just hope Waller stays away from the substances lol

    I've never played in a league that had FAAB waivers... offering a waiver bid for Malcolm Brown... I know its impossible to know this league works compared to others, but in general, does 25% of budget seem reasonable?

    If the Pats stay true to form this may be the week that Michel gets a bulk of the work. They adjust each week, and if Miami cant stop the run, they will milk it. Connor and Ekeler should out touch White by a healthy margin this week you would think.

    If AB plays, and the Pats jump out to a big lead, will they keep throwing it is my question. I have no idea how they will distribute the targets this week.
    Gordon did look pretty nice last week. Diggs can be hit or miss as well. Is he fully healthy? He played Sunday but reports were that he still was not fully recovered. That's a tough one. I may lean Gordon only because he can turn 2 or 3 catches into 100+ yards and 2 TD's vs the Dolphins.

    Agree with Baseline... Conner and Ekeler. Even if /when the Pats pull away, you have to worry about Burkhead getting snaps. I also agree... Brady and Belicheat will want to show off at least one of their new toys.

    I'm in a 16 team gue where you have to reach for all sorts of players. I grabbed Hunter Renfrow last week due to the Antonio Brown saga, but with Hill out should I drop Renfrow and add Demarcus Robinson (Hardman was long gone)?

    I really like Renfro's potential. I think he will benefit from AB's departure just like their other weapons. Robinson I think has the higher short term ceiling. Just being in that offense means he could have a couple of those monster weeks that can help you get through a tough week. Robinson is being listed as there #2 over Hardman for whatever that's worth.

    That's another tough choice man. Short term fix Robinson. Long term consistency and value Renfro.

    Thanks... I didn't win the Brown bid (someone bid 25%) but did win the Chris Thompson bid (bid 13%). Some people were really aggressive on WRs (eg Ross went for 32%, McLaurin for 18%).

    I usually save my $$ unless i have a real need like trying to replace a starter. Injuries happen and you will need it. I actually went and got thompson in one league because guice was my starter. Spent $8 of my 200 budget so i wasnt really expecting to snag him. Now i have to decide whether to start him or lesean mccoy.

    Interesting. Similar situation... I was able to move Guice to IR, needed a RB that could be "startable" and leaning starting Thompson vs DAL over Lindsey vs CHI (ugh).

    In another league, no IR, and again, needed a startable RB, so had to cut Guice (ugh) and someone beat my bid for Thompson (grrr) and thus settled for Gio Bernard, who I will start if Mixon is out.

    In a last league (16 team, no FAAB) Thompson and Bernard were drafted and again, needed a RB better than Ryquell Amstead (you'd think that would be easy). The best available was Rahim Mostert, and I burned my #4 waiver position and beat out four other waiver claims. Come bye week, Mostert may be in my starting lineup. :eek:

    Speaking of Guice... feel a little less bad about cutting Guice after seeing this...

    I would go with Sanders I guess. I would think about the same floor this week. Which would both be about 50 yards. I would think Sanders has a higher chance for a TD though.

    Pick three. Pick three! PICK THREE!!

    Because I can't make up my damn mind.

    Mike Evans (my QB Winston I drafted likes to throw to the other team more than his own) so I dunno
    Josh Gordon(awful Miami team with Antonio Brown I presume playing this week) again awful awful team hard to pass up starting him
    Kenny Golladay (disappointing last week with only 40 something yards, but a touchdown though)
    John Brown (against the Giants secondary that was carved up by the cowboys last week) if don't start him he will have 50-60 yard TD guaranteed

    I also have Winston at Qb on a team. After all... "TB has two top WRs and a top TE and no RBs... someone has to throw them the ball" . :mad:

    I would say Brown for sure. And I'd think Brady and Belicheat will want to show off at least one of their new toys, so I'd go with Gordon against the Miami Replacements. I am hoping that Winston bounces back and so I am choosing Evans as the third.
