  1. Need to pick 2 keepers in an auction draft. $200 budget Best choices: David Johnson- $59 Lesean McCoy - $25 Jay Ajayi - $5 Was thinking David Johnson + Jay Ajayi ? Or shoud I keep McCoy and Ajayi and hope to just buy David Johnson again for $60-70 ? Help pleeease
  2. Passing on Zeke??

    I'm in a 12 man PPR Keeper League. With Zeke being suspended I know he'll be available at the #4 spot where I'm drafting. The smart thing to do is pass on him and go after an elite WR in that spot since I know David Johnson is being kept and Bell will go either 1 or 2. My dilemma is the team that is keeping David Johnson will absolutely swoop in on Elliott with the #12 pick. Should I take Zeke at #4 to prevent this other team from stacking up at RB or continue to draft an elite WR? Thanks for your input.
  3. In a 14 man half PPR keeper league. Only 1 keeper that you get to keep for 1 year in which you forgo the round you selected your keeper in. Draft order is unknown until keepers are figured out. Keep in mind, these are the players that other teams have already decided to keep: Bell, Crowell, Perkins, Adams, Antonio Brown, Crowder, McCoy, Hill, and AJ Green I'm split between the following: -David Johnson (give up 1st round pick) -Mike Evans (give up 2nd round pick) -Tyrelle Pryor (give up 11th round pick)
  4. So this is my team. 12 man league with the 4th pick in the draft. I think I may have taken some risks here and there, but I'm not too upset with my team. I think my receiving core is suspect...anyways I've been offered a trade for Marshawn Lynch. I would be getting Mike Gillislee and Martavis Bryant. Any input is appreciated. Thanks in advance!
  5. I'm in a 10 team keeper league, half point PPR and allowed 4 keepers each year I'm curious o opinions of who would be a better keeper at wide reciever I could keep Amari Cooper for a 5th round pick OR Kelvin Benjamin for a 13th round pick. I like both but both were somewhat spotty when it came to points last year. My 3 current keepers are Levon Bell (3rd Round), Jay Ajayi (15th Round), and Michael Thomas (16th Round the WR in NO) TIA for any input
  6. I have Kareem Hunt and thinking I should maybe "sell high" on him before Spencer Ware comes back and it becomes a timeshare . . . I'm looking to do a 2 for 1 to upgrade at WR. The Spencer Ware Owner has Odell Beckham and Brandin Cooks. Is there a trade that works with this roster? I was think maybe Hunt and one of the guys on my bench for Cooks, who just became a more attractive WR due to the Edelman news. Anyone have a better suggestion? Or should I keep Hunt and see how it plays it? I do need to drop someone by week 1 to pick up a kicker, so a 2 for 1 would be great.
  7. 6th Pick

    I have the 6th pick and know how the first 5 will go.. Johnson, Bell, Brown, Beckham and Jones... who do I pick with the 6th? McCoy, Gordon, Evans, Freeman? Someone else?
  8. 12 Man .5 PPR Roster: QB: Russell Wilson RB: Le'Veon Bell, James Conner, Ezekiel Elliott, Darren McFadden, Doug Martin, Jamaal Williams WR: Stephon Diggs, Sammy Watkins, Pierre Garçon, Jeremy Maclin, Donte Moncrief TE: Jack Doyle I pooped in the bed in this draft didn't I?
  9. Keeper League, 5 keepers. Starting Lineup - QB, 2 RB, 2 WR, 1 TE, 1 Flex, K, DEF Chose 5 from: Mike Evans Devonta Freeman Demaryius Thomas Jordan Reed Matt Ryan Sammy Watkins Others: Brandon Marshall Tevin Coleman Derrick Henry Latavius Murray
  10. In a 14 man half PPR keeper league. Only 1 keeper that you get to keep for 1 year in which you forgo the round you selected your keeper in. Draft order is unknown until keepers are figured out. I'm split between the following: -David Johnson (give up 1st round pick) -Mike Evans (give up 2nd round pick) -Tyrelle Pryor (give up 11th round pick) i obviously get the best value from Pryor, but DJ is a fantasy monster, especially in a PPR league.
  11. 12 Man .5 PPR Roster: QB: Russell Wilson RB: Le'Veon Bell, James Conner, Ezekiel Elliott, Darren McFadden, Doug Martin, Jamaal Williams WR: Stephon Diggs, Sammy Watkins, Pierre Garçon, Jeremy Maclin, Donte Moncrief TE: Jack Doyle Did my first auction draft today with with the plan of targetting Ezekiel Elliot for the discount caused by the looming suspension. I think it worked out well allowing me to grab two super star RB's without breaking the bank. I managed to get Zeke for 17% of my bank roll and McFfadden for peanuts, tying up the Dallas backfield. Of course having Zeke/Bell on my roster didn't allow much spending on WR's, but I think I picked a very high upside flock of wideouts that should suffice. Let me know what you guys think of the draft?
  12. 10 team leauge I have the 4th pick looking to move up to the 2nd pick I've been offered this should I do it? 1st round-2nd pick 2nd round-8th pick (19) 3rd round-4th pick (24) 4th round-8th pick (39) then all picks go back to the same
  13. I'm in a 12-team, 0.5PPR league allowed to retain 2 keepers. If the player was drafted last year, you forego the pick in that round this year. If the player was undrafted then it's based on their ADP. Starting Lineup: QB RB RB WR/TE WR/TE RB/WR/TE DST K Here are my options: QB Big Ben (9th) Mariota (13th) RB Lamar Miller (1st) Demarco Murray (4th) Derrick Henry (6th) Thomas Rawls (13th) WR AJ Green (1st) Dez Bryant (3rd) Michael Thomas (4th) Tyrell Williams (13th) Keepers Considered AJ Green (1st) Michael Thomas (4th) Demarco Murray (4th) Mariota (13th) I like Thomas's value in the 4th and I'm tempted to stack my receivers with AJ and Thomas. If I go with Murray and Thomas I'd have to take them in the 3rd and 4th since I don't have two 4th rounders. Value for Mariota isn't bad. What are your thoughts? Thanks!
  14. NFL fans all around, it's nearly that time of the year again! I'm at a bit of a crossroads here in the UK though - I'm struggling to solidify my GW1 starting lineup in the WR department. Though I drafted 7th, I managed to pick up a strong offense in my book (particularly in the RB department) but my WR department does appear to be lacking a little. Davante Adams is a sure starter in my line up but the second WR position is up for grabs and fighting it out are Cameron Meredith and Allen Robinson. Both players have plus points and both come with an element of risk. In an ideal world, Robinson would be straight in my team and gaining some all important yards. In an ideal world, however, he simply WOULD NOT be receiving any passes from the mishap that has been Blake Bortles (or possibly Chad Henne, not that the outcome bodes any better). Then we come to Meredith... He is undoubtedly talented but I am again left in the same position as with Robinson - he doesn't have a solid QB behind him. Do I put my faith in Robinson or Meredith? This is the all important question!
  15. Keeper league

    Need some advice. I'm in a keeper league and I have a decision to make. I'm 9th in the draft order. I can keep (2) keepers. I have Aaron Rodgers (last yrs 1st round pick) Melvin Gordon and Mike Evens. If I keep Rodgers I lose 1st round pick! What to do? its a PPR league. Thanks in advance for the input.
  16. 10 team leauge I have the 4th pick looking to move up to the 2nd pick I've been offered this should I do it? 1st round-2nd pick 2nd round-8th pick (19) 3rd round-4th pick (24) 4th round-8th pick (39) then all picks go back to the same
  17. Hi All, I am curious about some unique and challenging league scoring and roster formats that you have seen in your leagues. For me, the most interesting and challenging format included 2 QB, 2DST, and 3 IDP. I have created a free custom yahoo league with the same rules. Feel free to use the link below and join my league. Once you see how cool this format is, I think you will fine the standard format boring. https://football.fantasysports.yahoo.com/f1/1010107/invitation?key=6c8578eb4c8d04b4&ikey=f5fcc9377e142aee

  19. Auction Draft Rating WTF?

    Did a 12 team standard auction mock draft with the following results: QB: Drew Brees RB1: Marshawn Lynch RB2: Mark Ingram RB3: C.J. Anderson RB4: Mike Gilliskee RB5: Doug Martin RB6: Terrance West FLEX: Frank Gore WR1: DeAndre Hopkins WR2: Michael Crabtree WR3: DeVante Adams WR4: Donte Moncrief WR5: Martavis Bryant TE: Tyler Eifert D/ST: Broncos PK: Stephen Grostkowski Fantasy football guys gives my fantasy team a 45% chance to make playoffs and my weakness is depth, wtf in it talking about a weakness in depth? Team looks great to me?
  20. Am I the only one seeing a wide variance between the Huddle and other sites relative to strength of schedule rankings? After a quick check of fantasypros, FFtoday, PFF, Scout, and others, I noticed the Huddle seems to have the largest variance when compared to all other sites. Most of the others sites all seem to list New England and Carolina as having the easiest schedule against the run for RBs, with New England being the top of most and Carolina being no lower than 3rd. On the Huddle's SOS for RBs show a completely different list starting with Denver, Jac, Min etc. Could this variation be explained by the Huddle's method of removing the effects of the unusually bad or good game for defenses by eliminating their best and worst games before determining their average fantasy points allowed for each position?
  21. Hey guys, so I am in a 12-team Non-PPR league. We play 1 QB, 2 RB, 2 WR, 1 TE, 1 FLEX (RB/WR/TE), 1 D, 1 K and have six bench spots. The draft is a snake draft and I have the 11th pick, so it will be pick 11, 14, 35, 38, etc. We play with two keepers from your team from last year. The way that works is that the keeper counts as your pick in the round prior to the round he was selected last year, if undrafted he counts as your 15th round pick, and if you selected two from the same round it slides back. Was hoping to get some advice on who you think I should keep as I have some interesting choices especially with value-based picks. I have already taken into account the round up when listing the players I have available, so the Round.Pick is the round and my pick spot for this upcoming draft. For example, LeSean McCoy was drafted in the second round last year so I have him listed as 1.11, meaning he'd be my 1st round pick with pick 11. My choices are as followed in the format of (Player: Round.Pick)- RB’s: LeSean McCoy 1.11; DeMarco Murray 2.14; Spencer Ware 15.179; Ty Montgomery 15.179; Mike Gillislee 15.179; Paul Perkins 15.179; Charchandrick West 12.134 WR’s: Dez Bryant 1.11; Alshon Jeffery 1.11; Allen Robinson 6.62; Martavis Bryant 9.107; Sterling Shepard 7.83 TE's: Martellus Bennet 7.83; Cameron Brate 15.179 The draft is on Aug 27th; Keepers needed to be selected by the midnight on the 25th. If you could pick two or create a list and some reasons why you think so that would be much appreciated! I know a lot could vary in the next few weeks with preseason games, but just getting another set of opinions helps make sure you think of everything! Thanks so much!
  22. In a 12 team keeper .5 ppr that was just put In place this year . Round does not matter and I'm def keeping crowell . Question is do i keep prosise or Parker? P.s about 14 of the top 35 RB s are being kept . Thanks to anyone on their opinion
  23. Drafting Advice

    whats up everyone, I'm in a 10 team ppr keeper league, and I'm looking for some advice for on what I should do with my 1st two picks. I'm picking 4th this year. We had to keep 9 players.We are allowed to have 18 on roster. Which means I only get to draft 7 players since we have to start a kicker and Defense. Every week have to start QB,RB,RB,WR,WR,TE, FLEX(rb,wr,te), kicker and Defense. Here are my 9 keepers: Derek Carr,Doug Martin,Jeremy Hill,Dez Bryant,TY Hilton,DeAndre Hopkins,Eddie Lacy,Demaryius Thomas, and DeAndre Washington. I know I need RB's very bad, but do I draft Devante Adams? I think he could have a huge year! Any input on this would be greatly appreciated. Players available Fournette Dalvin Cook Devante Adams Marshawn Lynch Jamison Crowder Ameer Abdullah Willie Sneed Stefon Diggs Martavis Bryant Christian McCaffrey DeVante Parker Corey Coleman Fitzgerald Hunter Henry Danny Woodhead Cameron Meredith Bilal Powell Joe Mixon Jeremy Maclin Robert Kelley Matt Forte Pierre Garcon AP DeSean Jackson Zach Ertz Kareem Hunt Terrance West LeGarrette Blount Kyle Rudolph Jordan Matthews Zay Jones Kirk Cousins Marvin Jones Rivers Jack Doyle Marcus Mariota Tyrell Williams Corey Davis Martellus Bennett Eli Mohammed Sanu Cameron Brate Coby Fleener Tyler Lockett Robert Woods Jared Cook Shane Vereen Derrick Henry Kevin White Dalton Tyrod Taylor Eric Ebron Terrance Williams Allen Hurns Nelson Agholor Witten Flaco Giovani Bernard Taylor Gabriel Josh Doctson JamaalWilliams Jalen Richard
  24. Keeper League Help

    HI all, I inherited a team from a guy who dropped out of the league. I have the option to keep a player from has roster from last year if I choose (everyone has the same option for their own team too). Currently 10 team league -- potentially could become 12 by the time we draft. Scoring is standard with a normal lineup using a wr/rb/te flex. My team from last year is as follows (with round drafted in parentheses). If I choose to keep a player I forfeit the round they were chosen in last year, but if I choose to keep my first rounder I also forfeit my 6th round pick and regain a pick to fill my roster at the end of the draft. Antonio Brown (1) LeSean McCoy (2) Cam Newton (3) Julian Edelman (4) Latavius Murray (5) Matt Jones (6) James White (7) Marvin Jones Jr. (8) Rashad Jennings (9) Jimmy Graham (10) Martellus Bennett (11) Tajae Sharpe (12) Minnesota (13) Chandler Catanzaro (14) Charles Johnson (15) Any advice would be greatly appreciated. I am leaning in a direction at this point, but would like to hear other opinions to get a feel for what others might do.
