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

Thoughts?
Julio: He's a must start if he plays, but whether or not he will do so is anyone's guess.

Ridley: Must start if Julio sits out

Mr. Hooper: Tough to go all in on the Falcons against one of the league's better D's, but he's still a better option than Ebron IMO. See if you can trade him, but I'm guessing that Julio and Devonta are the only Falcons with real trade value.

Shocking that MWilliams is on waivers - I would drop Corey for him. (Corey has been a "breakout" candidate for the past couple years, but Titans are way too run-heavy for him to have any significant fantasy value.) Anderson has had some good stretches in the past, I would take a chance on him.

Goodell should let A Brown play against PIT today just to make the circle complete

I spent a good bit of my auction budget on Hill in one league. Fortunately I got a little insurance in Watkins in that league. Unfortunately Watkins is having a monster day on my bench.

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

WR: Evans(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.
Week 1 overreaction

Already cut 1 player (Badgley) and probably will dump a couple more (Ebron Miller)this week.


Round 3 pick (K Johnson) looks like a bust.
Streaming defense was more like a steaming pile.
Round 9 pick (Ekeler)is clearly the best player on my team.

Zeke was sorta back and Evans was sick, so I will let their performance slide.

Which RB waiver claim would you rank higher: Bernard (Mixon ankle sprain) or Mostert (Coleman ankle injury)?

Sounds like Coleman’s injury may be worse, but whoever replaces him will probably split time with Breida.

Yes, and Ekeler was having his monster day on my bench as well, outscoring my starting 3 RBs combined and probably costing me the game (along with Evans, Browns D and Seattle K).

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.
3rd highest week score in 5 years of this league.

Another leaguemate (not my opponent, thankfully!) crushed the record (set by me last year when Henry/Cooper went off) by 16 points! He got 40 from Ekeler, 25 from Keenan Allen, 27 from TY Hilton, 45 from Sammy Watkins, 32 from Evan Engram. His only bust was Mike Evans.
