    Obviously in a lot of respects, this year is going to be completely different than year's past, but nonetheless, it's about that time!

    Any advice I expect would be MUCH appreciated here.

    I'll get this kicked off, with Covid-19 being around, are you adjusting the IR spots in your leagues this year? We normally do 1 spot, but should we go up to 2 or 3?

    Anyone else not know DICK about anything this year? I was rattling off titles last year. I don't even know who got drafted this year. Lulz.

    I just had a draft, thought I did pretty good. But you're spot on, there's no way to know much of anything. Especially with all the potential last minute positive tests, this fantasy season could potentially have one giant asterisk on it...

    It would be interesting to see your bench, but I think your receivers may be a little "Boom or Bust".

    Not to mention, Covid aside, I'm concerned for Nick Chubb owners due to Kareem Hunt being there, he took a MAJOR chunk out of Chubb's value down the stretch last season. (New Coaching staff, so anything's possible)

    Matt Gay was just cut by TB, replaced by Ryan Succop.

    Even in a 12-team league, I don't think LeSean McCoy should be rostered, he's the 3rd option just in the backfield alone. Arguably Sammy Watkins may not need to be rostered either, he's too inconsistent to feel comfortable starting week to week. Even if Reek Hill went down, Sammy could only be counted on as a high end WR3.

    I believe my league made a xtra IR spot only for COVID though. I probably should confirm that lol

    Yeah, I went on ahead and moved it to 3 for our league just to be safe. I expect that it will probably end up being used for hoarding players, but I didn't want someone to be stuck having to drop a good player just because they had a guy with possible exposure....

    The bench seems rather week for a 12 person league. I would look into more upside if it’s there. Plenty of rookie WR’s that are great for the draft class.

    Your starting lineup is super legit though. I would assume 1st or 2nd best in your league.

    I went into this season doing zero research for the first time, just haven't been following football since covid. There were lots of players I had never heard of, likely rookies, that I passed over just because i knew nothing about them. Guys like Mack and MVS were just players i was familiar with at the end of the draft

    Did my auction draft last night. Scored kittle, kelce, d-hop, Beckham and golladay. Flipped kelce for chubb. Still weak at RB but have a few trades in the works. Hopefully end up with ekeler for Hopkins.

    In one of my leagues I received a trade offer... his Darrel Williams for my Phillip Lindsay. I am the CEH owner, and along with CEH my RBs are Carson, Mixon, Lindsay, Jamaal Williams, Corey Clement, Frank Gore and McFarland (coming off my IR, so I may need to cut either him or Clement). Normally I would prefer Lindsay over Williams, but is the cuff benefit enough to make the trade?

    Need help on a few fronts:

    12 team .5 PPR

    - Should I drop Breida for Gaskin

    - I was also offered Wentz for Cam Newton straight up. I don't like this because Wentz looked bad this last Sunday and his offensive line looked worse. What should I realistically ask for Newton if I deal him? My other QB is Lamar Jackson.

    - I was also offered the following which seems much better:

    Send: Cam Newton and Raheem Mostert

    Receive:. Deshaun Watson and Chris Carson

    In another 12 team standard league:

    I am number one in my waiver wire which goes through tomorrow morning. I need some RB help after it appears Conner is injured and Snell did well and Singletary will be sharing the role.

    The top projected RBs on the market in my league are the following

    • N. Hines (IND)
    • P. Barber (WAS)
    • M. Gaskin (MIA)
    Complete list

    There are some others outside of those 3 but those are the tops as of now. Here is my current RB stable:

    • C. McCaffrey (CAR)
    • J. Conner (PIT)
    • D. Singletary (BUF)
    • M. Breida (MIA)
    • B. Scott (PHI)
    • L. Fournette (TB)
    My WR stable is good and I can drop one of them to pick up another RB. My WRs are:

    • C. Godwin (TB)
    • K. Allen (LAC)
    • D. Slayton (NYG)
    • J. Brown (BUF)
    • C. Kirk (ARI)
    I am either going to have to drop one of that group or Wentz/Bridgewater but I can pick up one more RB.

    Which one should I get?
