  1. What team(s) took you to the championship game? ?

    Standard scoring league: QB: Watson, TannehillRB: D. Henry, Carson, Peterson, (Mostert-flex for semi's)WR: Tyreek, Lockett, Gallup, Metcalf (have added Perriman & dropped Tannehill for finals) TE: Higbee, Hollister Flex: MostertK: Gould (Koo now...rotated all year)DT/ST: Steelers Roster has gone through major upheaval this year. Drafter David Johnson 1st. Also drafted O.J. Howard, Peyton Barber, Keke Coutee, Marquez Valdez-Scantling, Kyler Murray, Austin Murray, Austin Hooper, and Will Lutz. Lost Will Lutz during bye week when I picked up another kicker. regret that. Otherwise, just a mad scramble to get to the Ship. My team seldom resembles the one I drafted, as I think most peoples rosters evolve in this way as well. Hit gold on picks 2-6 (Tyreek, Henry, Carson, Lockett, and Watson).
  2. So I went to bed early....

    Nice!!!
  3. Which DST?

    ^^^^^^^
  4. The waiting is the hardest part

    I will still probably win & do want the bragging right though! Gotta be able to rib him until next season!
  5. Not really at all. Just trying to assemble the best possible team I can. It's just too hard to project who will be good/bad as it can change year to year in the NFL now. You may have a general inkling, but there will always be outliers. I DO start looking at about the halfway point as by then has useful data to go on.

    Same here.
  7. Jameis Winston appreciation thread

    Got lucky, but worked HARD to get there. Jameis is a nightmare to go up against. 1 more TD from him & I lose, maybe. As soon as I had the lead with him having no players left, I sat Pitts D. Good tip, learned on here. Love this forum, and the guys here!
  8. Jameis Winston appreciation thread

    Well, considering I just took down the #1 seed who had Jameis, he scared the cr@p out of me all day. He is an awesome fantasy QB. Thank goodness I was able to get by him! Good riddance!
  9. Will the weather affect Tyreek today?

    Thanks Montana.
  10. The weather looks bad in KC today and will not clear out until well after the game. Lots of snow throughout the game. Other options are Gallup & Metcalf (have Lockett starting). John Brown, Golden Tate, and Anthony Miller available. Very concerned about this unforeseen weather development. Any help appreciated.
  11. Will the weather affect Tyreek today?

    Wind speed at 10 mph now. Film shows snow falling rather straight down and not blowing hard and going too much sideways.

  13. Pick my WR2

    I like Sterling here.
  14. Patriots or Steelers defense this week?

    NE playing a very weak uninterested opponent in Cincy. Absolutely NE.
  15. Standard scoring. Driving myself nuts overthinking. Any help appreciated.
  16. TE?

    Absolutely Ertz
  17. Mostert or Singletary?

    Mostert
  18. D. Henry

    He is absolutely playing. Big boy ball (division on the line) this week. He has probably been hand fed, and carried, gently, to a hyperbolic chamber.
  19. Who to flex

    Mostert
  20. Ian Thomas or Gesicki

    Ian. Just got this feeling...and Seattle is TERRIBLE against TE's. I'm in. I'm also the guy that dropped Elliott for Koo last week (and ironically dropped Koo for Gould this week) and maybe lightning will strike twice! I researched it though. Ian is a great play this week number(s) wise.
  21. Which DST?

    Pittsburgh ROS
  22. Singletary or mostert rb2

    Mostert
  23. I agree totally having played for all these years. Luck & injuries are absolutely the biggest factor. Hell, the guy I'm playing tomorrow drafted Dalvin. I'm the guy who drafted Mattison with my last pick, and hung onto him until about 3 weeks ago. I played his injury tendencies, and it didn't pan out. Drafted David Johnson in the 2nd round. It really is a crap shoot & played FF since 90's, seriously, on friggin paper then. You have to be able to adapt & improvise. Most years, unless lucky, my team at the end of the year bears little semblance to the one I drafted. I won last week, in all honesty, because I made a kicker change. Had Elliott from the Eagles. Weather was going to be bad so switched to Koo from the Falcons because indoors & gets many attempts. Koo gets me 18. You just have to dig scramble and find any edge you can. There is much more to fantasy football than meets the eye to the casual "player". It takes constant work, but it is a hoot, and maddening, at the same time. I have been so pissed I vowed that I am done, like some post here, but the next year, there I am, itching to play. Enough rant for now. Love this forum!
  24. Yeah, overly simplistic quote, but DO honestly believe it is a combination of both.
