  1. Thanks you guys, I guess I'm looking at Waivers thinking none of these guys have relevance; but who predicted Damien Williams and Phillip Lindsay being relevant last season!
  2. When someone becomes relevant the money does tend to fly in this league, for example towards the end of last season when injuries popped up for D. Williams and Conner, West and Ridley went for $20 and $45 respectively; despite not winding up with really any role whatsoever. The two biggest buys of the season were Phillip Lindsay for $93 after his week 1 breakout, and Damian Williams for $66 after Hunt's release. I do think that most relevant handcuffs are owned already (Alfred Blue, Dontrell Hilliard, and Artis-Payne would be examples of guys left available behind Duke), so I feel Duke's guaranteed role may be worth splurging on early?
  3. Keeper advice

  4. I should've mentioned it is 12 teams as well. QB: - Cam Newton - Mitch Trubisky RB: - Christian McCaffrey - Dion Lewis - Jordan Howard - Ito Smith - Doug Martin - Elijah McGuire - Rex Burkead - Jordan Wilkins WR: - Julio Jones - Odell Beckham - Stefon Diggs - Dante Pettis - Emmanuel Sanders - John Ross - Robert Foster - Maurice Harris - Keelan Cole TE: - Evan Engram - Hunter Henry - Will Dissly - Darren Waller Defence: - Minnesota Vikings Rookies: - AJ Brown - JJ Arcega-Whiteside I feel like Duke Johnson slides easily into that RB2/RB3 category, and the options on the waiver wire does not offer any other inspiring names.
  5. Sorry for the long winded thread title. Looking for some advice on Duke Johnson in a PPR Dynasty Empire League. Here's my conundrum, I'm reigning champion in this empire league, if I win back-to-back I take the entire empire pot and we start from scratch next year. So naturally no one wants to trade with me to improve my somewhat thin RB depth (McCaffrey, Howard, Lewis, Ito, and some low upside handcuffs), however the rest of my roster is stacked enough that there's a chance. We keep 24 players, and draft an additional 3 rookies. So as you can imagine, the waiver pool is extremely thin throughout the year. Someone dropped Duke Johnson to waivers prior to the Texans trade, and FAB Waivers go through tomorrow. How aggressive do I go with Duke, knowing that he could potentially be my RB2 or RB3 if he hits his upside? We have a budget of $100, do I go super aggresive and bid $75? more? less?
