    Wilson is a pure dart throw and playing him would be chasing points IMO.

    Your RBs are god-awful. I don't know if you can be helped at this point.

    Didn't have to throw salt on the wound. JK

    But yeah I know I'm in deep crap so I'm needing a hail mary every week. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

    If I were you, I would sell high on Michael Thomas and try to trade him in a 2 for 1 deal.

    You trade Thomas and get back a WR2 and RB2 for instance.

    Gee, just as Jake Butt was starting to be talked about as a possible TE possibility...

    Sat Goff on my PPR team and sat Cooks on my standard team. My benches continue to be Super Bowl bound... :p But probably don't feel as bad as someone in my standard league that dropped Goff and picked up Manning. At 8:23pm this evening. :D

    I started Goff over Wilson this week. Feeling pretty good about that.

    Also had Thielin. Good start to the week.

    If Wilson puts up 40+ I will stand up and applaud no doubt.

    Starting Matt Ryan over Goff. ATL is supposed to be in a shootout with CIN (I have Dalton starting in my other league). And started JuJu Smith-Shuster (vs BAL... but its frickin' JuJu, can't sit him) and Emmanuel Sanders (vs KC) over Cooks. Couldn't put him at Flex (starting James Conner there). Hard to say I really made bad decisions, despite what happened.

    MIN had only given up 100 yard game last year... gave up 3 last night. Guessing MIN defense is no longer elite. And/or LAR offense is unstoppable.

    Ajayi, Lamar Miller or T. Coleman for my RB2 this week?

    I have Coleman in the lineup right now as he is the projected to score the most but I am leaning towards starting Miller actually on Sunday.

    Bengals were roasted last week by McCaffrey who isn't even a very good inside runner, so I would tend to lead toward Coleman.

    I would just stick with Lockett. I think Baldwin is a game time decision. He might be on limited minutes or likely reinjure himself anyways.

    I was starting Lockett but switching to Smokey Brown vs PIT instead.

    How wrong would it be if my opponent only has one QB right now which is J Garrapalo (who tore his ACL) if I were to pick up and drop the 3 remaining QB's available in my 14 team league? They would all be on waivers and he would not then have a starting QB?

    I mean I wouldn't really do it. But it would be funny as hell and would I assume piss some people off for sure.

    LOL. You know both sides of the question: "Go for it, its within the rules, and making moves that help you win." Versus, "Yea, its within the rules, but isn't good sportsmanship".

    I know if the past I have picked up a player more to keep away from my opponent. Even this week I held onto a player up until I knew waivers would make him unavailable, even dropping another player for a move I wanted to make. Heard a fantasy sports writer say "better on your bench than in your opponents starting lineup".
