    Agree with Moes... Golladay vs NE, especially now that Jones Jr is hobbled. MIA pass defense is decent and its a long travel for OAK. Plus Cooper seems to never string good games together. I am even thinking of sitting Cooper for either Smoky Brown (vs DEN) or Sony Michel (vs DET... swing for a breakout game).

    10 Team Standard. Just making sure I made the right move.

    RB1/2: Collins (v DEN), Clement (v IND)
    Current Flex: K Cole (v TEN)
    BN Options: Henry (@ JAC), Goodwin (@ KC), Carson (v DAL), J.Williams (@ WAS)

    @moestavern19 @KingCheetah OK, played Cooks. Despite Sanders getting a TD on a run (who woulda think), but hoping I get enough off Cooks to cover my bad QB situation (Luck vs PHI). Since I lost Fournette again I took a gamble in my other league and hoping for a Sony Michel breakout game.

    And... 71 yards. Time to start streaming QBs... Dalton vs ATL or Bortles vs the Jets? I am leaning the Red Rifle...

    And in the other game... which guy left Matt Ryan's 41 points on his bench? This guy. Fitzpatrick... you really do need to perform magic now. :oops:

    That would be me. Yeah, I’m locked in a tight one this week and I’ve got Fitzpatrick, AB, and Evans left against my opponent’s Brady, Gostkowski, and 10 points.

    Rest of season projection: Kenny Stills vs. Tyler Boyd. Who has the higher upside?

    Funny thing, I pretty much have the game I am starting Fitzpatrick won and my opponent in the other league is starting him too... so if he were to transform back into Fitztragic, or Pickspatrick it would help me win that game too.

    Fantasy Football is a cruel mistress...

    Annnnd Kerryon Johnson is the first running back for the Lions with over a 100 yards since Reggie Bush. Save me from David Johnson and Lamar Miller please!

    Of course, since I dropped him to add Phillip Lindsay who punches himself out of a starting job and kept Sony Michel who gained 50. Life is good.

    As a fellow david johnson owner, I feel your pain. I’m not optimistic that situation is going to get any better this year - the offensive line sucks, the coaching sucks, and bradford sucks.

    So on my standard league team, my QB is Luck. Its a ten man league and the other 9 teams drafted two QBs each. I waited, drafted one (Luck). So, the QBs on waivers are pretty thin (Dalton, Keenum, Manning, Bortles, Tannehill, Mayfield). Should I:
    1. Hang with Luck and hope the easier defenses means he will get better (though not next week vs HOU)?
    2. Cut Luck, stream (starting with Dalton vs ATL)?
    3. Cut my weakest player (Lindsay or Michel) and add Dalton?
    3. Try to trade for a better (eg Lindsay for Goff, or Jones Jr for Rivers), or something like that?

    I'd try some trade packages first to try and land a better QB that is currently sitting on somebody's bench.

    Man, there was a lot of buzz around Mahomes and what Andy Reid was going to do with that golden arm, but I didn't expect anything this wild. A prominent DFS player was telling people yesterday that Mahomes is going to shatter the passing yard and TD single-season records. I'm beginning to believe it.

    The Steph Curry of football has arrived.
