RB: Zeke(1), Kerryon Johnson (3), Josh Jacobs(4), Ekeler (9), Breida(10), Anthony Miller(12)

WR: Evan(2), Kupp (5), Fuller(7), Robby Andersen(8)

TE: Ebron (11), Waller(13)

K: Badgley (13) planning to stream

DEF: Eagles (14) planning to stream

If Zeke plays and Melvin Gordon doesn't, I will be okay with this team.
Zeke is playing, so that is good.

Week one I think I am benching my 4th(Jacobs) and 5th picks (Kupp).

Let's see how this season plays out...

I'm guessing you're benching Jacobs for Ekeler?

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.

Yup. Ekeler over Jacob's, at least for week 1.
Really interested to see how Oakland's offense plays out, as it impacts my RBs (do I look to trade?) and my TE sleeper.

Waiting to see if Kupp is actually healthy before playing him, but he should be PPR gold IF healthy.

As a Hawks fan, how do you feel about Lockett this season? I figured with Baldwin's retirement he could be a solid WR2.

Play Montgomery.

That seems to be the consensus, according to FantasyPros.

Zeke signed, so I will probably cut Pollard and pick up Mark Andrews, Justin Jackson, John Brown or a one-week fill-in at defense.

I am pretty happy with the team.

Cut down my FF to 1 league this year. Full dynasty and devy league (we have a devy auction for college players including incoming freshmen).

14 team, 1/1/1/1 with 5 flex, .75/1.00/1.25 PPR for WR/RB/TE and 0.1 PPC

QB: Mahomes, Dalton+Finley, Haskins, Bridgewater, Chad Kelly

RB: McCaffrey, Chubb, Bell, Henry, Guice, Ballage, Gore, Damien Harris, Rashaad Penny, Darrel Williams

WR: Davante Adams, Amari Cooper, Keke Coutee, Rashard Higgins, Josh Reynolds, Jalen Hurd

TE: Njoku, Jesse James, Irv Smith, Jr.

Devy RB: Zach Charbonnet, Steele Chambers


WR is weak after my top two guys, so hopefully neither gets hurt. TE is mediocre, but I'd have to overpay if I wanted an elite guy. At least Kelce's on a bad team. I'm rostering too many QBs (including 4 backups on their own team!) but the waiver is ridiculously thin with 14 teams, 28 man rosters.

Team looks good to me, especially at RB. I see Keke having potential since Fuller keeps getting injured.

I won the championship last year despite no Bell or Guice (thank you Derrick Henry for your timely rampage). I got REALLY lucky with playoff seedings as I would have been knocked out one playoff round with different seedings.

Here's hoping for another win.
