Yet another high-scoring opponent, though this time it was from a player who has the 2nd lowest point total in the league. Just the way my season is going....

Fortunately Bucs-Hawks game worked in my favour, as I had both Evans and Lockett and opponent had the Seattle kicker. Down by 2 with Barkley and Dallas kicker going tonight, opponent has Cooper, who will probably have a big game tonight. Most likely the loser of this match will have the second highest score this week.

Need Engram to put up 20 tonight or I lose to the worst team in the league and put myself in a tough spot to make a playoff run

I am probably having my most solid season ever in FFB. Lots of injury luck, in that I have only lost one player to season ending IR (Kerryon)].
Otherwise, I have been just rolling out the team that I drafted week to week* and looking to be 7-2** with another weekly high score and leading the league in scoring by over 100.

*I planned to stream defenses and kickers, so those guys have been replaced multiple times. That might be done though, as I may just finish the season with a buffalo + Pittsburgh combo

**week 1 lost by 1.4 after a score correction
**week 3 lost 209-185 because I got tempted by my shiny new waiver wire pickup (Hollywood) and left Kupp and his net 16 points on the bench. Always start your studs.

I am due for some more bad luck, for sure.

I was off to a horrendous start in one league at 1-4 due to bad injury luck. Had basically a dead roster spot multiple weeks when players were lost early in the game (Hill, Rapistburger, Coleman,...)

Won 3 in a row now, likely to be 4 this week, and would then be in a playoff spot. CMC, Hill, Golloday, Hooper are the core starters barring future bad injury luck.

This ended up being irrelevant. Both put up 5 points in my league.

I picked up Mecole Hardman as a last second replacement for TY Hilton (seriously nothing is available in my league). He ended up with -1.3 points. I would have been better off with TY in my lineup.

Hardman gave me -1 points week 4, ended up losing a close match as a result.

Niners schedule will be tough these next few weeks: Seattle, Arizona, Packers, @ Ravens, @ Saints. If I somehow make it to the championship then they get a great match at home against the Falcons, but will look at alternatives in the meantime. (Colts vs. Miami should be decent.)

About to be 7-2 with a rebound win after two bad losses (Mahomes, Davante Adams, Amari Cooper all having injuries while my core RBs having bye weeks hurt a lot). 7 points off the league lead in points scored but have faced 270 more points scored than the guy ahead of me, ha.

6/14 teams make the playoffs (1st week bye for #1/2 seeds) with all-play rounds 1 and 2 (best 2 of 4 advance each round, not head-to-head). I'm going to have to consider making a move for a legit TE before the playoffs instead of rolling out with Darren Fells and junk.

Now have the second best record at 6-3, despite leading the league in points against. (My record is now 3-0 against opponents who score >110 points, as they did in the past 2 matches.) Our league has 4/12 teams making the playoffs (weeks 15-16), with 3 division winners and a wildcard.

Have a good core of starters, highlighted by the WRs Evans and Lockett, QBs Cousins and Murray, and a decent group of RB's (Barkley, Fournette, Montgomery) who now get heavy volume but are in bad offenses. Wish I had more consistency from the TE spot (Andrews/Waller), and as I mentioned before the SF defense is facing a tough run of games down the stretch, but as long as my core group can stay healthy I'm good.

Need TE and flex, no PPR

Waller vs. LAC or Andrews @Cinc

ESanders vs. Sea or Ekeler @Oak

I say Waller and Sanders.

Ravens have had under 200 passing yards 3 of last 4 games. Ekeler would be okay to play over Sanders but I think Sanders has a higher ceiling this week. 49ers will need to throw to keep up with this Russell Wilson.
