Here's hoping for another win.
Here's hoping that both of us have a successful championship defense. (I won mine by 1 point!)

Here's my team (.5 PPR):

QB: C. Wentz
RB: N. Chubb, D. Williams, T. Coleman, G. Bernard, C. Thompson
WR: D. Adams, R. Woods, J. Gordon, D. Moncrief, T. Williams, M. Sanu, J. Ross III
TE: E. Engram
DST: Chargers
K: J. Elliott


Not feeling great at RB, but I like my WR upside, and Williams looks pretty nice if/when AB gets suspended.

For week 1, anyone feel strongly about who to FLEX? Leaning slightly toward Gordon but I am open to opinions.

I agree with Gordon, though I would be tempted to play Coleman against the Bucs D.

That's the dilemma... but OTOH Breida was just announced the starter so I'm not sure how many touches Coleman will get.

I'd go with Gordon then

I have a similar dilemma of whether or not to bench my 4th round RB (Montgomery) for Ekeler. I am leaning Ekeler since I'm not sure what to expect out of a rookie who is sharing carries with 2 other RBs (one of which my opponent has), but Ekeler is in a timeshare as well and since my league does not do PPR he won't be as valuable.
Should have trusted my gut - even ESPN got this one right

Didn't understand why the Bears tried to throw the ball 50 times in a game they were down by 7 pts or less the whole way. Their last called run play was at 10:20 in the 3Q. By my count their last 34 plays were all passes.

When you have the great Mitch Trubisky why wouldn't you throw on every down!

As I mentioned in another thread, the Packers were stacking the box. Standard defensive play when the QB can't hit his targets.

In my work league had a terrible draft. Accidentally missed it and it went auto draft. horrible team. So much so that I have devonta freeman, julio jones, calvin ridley, and austin hooper.

Freeman is a no-brain start. But whta about all 3 of the others? Other WRs: Robby anderson and corey davis.

Marvin jones, Mike williams (Chargers) are on waivers. For TEs only ebron really on waivers.

Thoughts?
