yeah, rostering two good defenses (or holding a great one through a bye) for that reasoning is understandable

But, like, holding both of Green Bay/Seattle? This year? C'mon man.

Even if I don't play the Rams ever again, I'll probably hold onto them just so no one else in my league can get them lol

Historically, I've always streamed defenses week to week.

Last year, I dropped Ravens after they went negative. They went on to be destroyers of worlds for the rest of the season.

So this year, when I saw the bears were on fire.....yeah, I'm keeping them. Picked up Titans to fill in their bye, and I already dropped the Titans in anticipation of waivers tonight. Titans are fine, but their value is nowhere remotely close to an average waiver wire pickup.

Every year there's 2-3 defenses/kickers worth holding.

I agree, but those 2-3 kickers/DEF worth holding are almost always ones that get drafted anytime before the last few rounds, where I'd generally rather be looking for some value bench players.

If the Bears D was available in any of my leagues I'd be picking them up and keeping them, but that would never happen.

Somebody in my league swapped Alex Smith for Winston but Mayfield wasn't touched. His other QB is Dalton, so I can't bring myself to think it's a matchup grab and thus I'm just throughly confused.

does anyone know how IR slots work with someone just being declared out for the week?

for example, right now Gio Bernard is already out, so I can put him in my IR spot and pick up another player. but what happens once the next week resets and Gio is no longer out? would he just be dropped immediately without any confirmation/action on my part?

edit: ESPN btw

You can't make any roster moves while an ineligible player is in your IR slot. So you'd have to drop somebody or move another O/IR player to that slot in Bernard's place before you could add or trade.

Stays on IR until you move him. However you cannot make any additions to your roster with someone on IR who isnt actually out. So you would have to move him back to your main roster before doing any waiver claims or trades

If you dont do waivers or trades you can leave him there for as long as you want even if he's not out

Somebody literally picked up Winston while Matt Ryan was available.

I dropped Big Ben for Ryan.

Eric Ebron is injured with like four injuries somehow.

I have had half a dozen guys injured so far this season. It is becoming annoying.

It's Wednesday, yo. Be worried if that's still a thing tomorrow and Friday.

That said, the lack of news on Kupp so far has me worring about whether I want to hedge and just play Alshon tomorrow, or risk having to play Baldwin if Kupp isn't cleared.

Either my opponents think I'm dumb or they don't actually understand what makes a good trade, because the amount of 3 for 1 offers I've gotten in this league is way too high.

I told the last guy that if he can also include two extra starting spots in the trade so that I could start the two extra players I'd be getting, I'd accept it.

Hopefully that deters him.

Literally half my team in my main league is listed as questionable. And that's if I include my kicker as those who are uninjured.

lmao literally as I'm typing this up I get another questionable alert. Most, if not all, of these guys are going to play but this is ridiculous!

Wasn't he expected to do that to the Steeler's Defense too? <_<

For your sake though, I hope he comes through regardless.

He was. :( I decided to put my faith in him again. I understand the Jets have a solid defense, which is why I don't want to put Luck there.

Jets have been very middle of the road vs QBs this season, fantasy-wise

Also the Colts run game is hot garbage, even with Marlon Mack on pace to return this week

(That said, Ryan, if healthy, is absolutely the better matchup and a very good play this week. I recommended Luck earlier on the assumption Ryan would be hurt, but that seems to not be the case. In that case, both are good, roll with your gut)

Depends on whether you think last week was an indication Mahomes is mortal. I don't rate NE's defense, so I think this is very similar to Biscuit's Luck vs Ryan decision but more difficult and less likely to have a truly wrong answer.

Pats defense sucks, and Mahomes is easily a more consistent choice after last week with Ryan.

I say this playing Ryan this week though. Lol

I just got offered Alex Collins for Aaron Jones. .5 PPR. If this was a few weeks ago I would have easily taken it, but Buck Allen is giving me pause now. Thoughts?

My other starting RB are Devonta Freeman and Cook, which hasn't exactly worked out so far. Jones is potentially my RB1 heading into Sunday.

That's super hard imo. Neither back is getting used anywhere close to their potential. If I had to have one right now, I think I'd rather have Jones, but it's just a gut feeling.

I have Mahomes, Matt Ryan.
Buck Allen, Lynch, Mixon, Shady.

Make sense to offer Shady and Ryan for James White?

The guy who is running Derek Carr as his QB1 has Saquon AND McCaffrey. I told him I was willing to negotiate for one of them... Ryan and Lynch, Allen, something like that. No response.

James White is very consistent and I'd rather have that consistency. Lynch was very consistent until last week.

Strangely, I'm fine with my receiving corps of Golden Tate, John Brown, Tyler Boyd.

Maybe I just run Brown+Buck and Boyd+Mixon and count on the AFC North being a slugfest into week 17?

I'd keep collins over jones just because I feel like baltimore has fewer offensive weapons to choose from. It could go either way though.

Han, remind me, you playing ppr or standard?
That trade looks fine in Standard imo (especially if Shady continues getting volume or gets traded). Definite underpay in ppr though.

I'm high on White even in Standard though.

With Zuerlein officially out for the week, I need a kicker

Janikowski is out there on the FA pool calling my name and I really like the guy, but I have a bad feeling about it for some reason

do I do it anyways y/n (If I don't I'd probably go either Santos (LAR) or Succop (TEN))

I ended up declining the trade. I feel like Jones has the upside if they finally decide to give him some touches.

Just traded for Bell in the other B8 league. Also got Kelce and Bears D in the deal so I'm pleased.

Figured I'd try and see if I could get Bell in my work league too since that owner is struggling as well. Turns out he dropped him...like what. Put in a claim immediately but I'm 9/10 so unless people missed that transaction I doubt I'll get him.

So just a reminder to check your leagues and see if you can get Bell for cheap if the Bell owner is desperate for a win!

So, do I start Cook who is on a limited snap count and guaranteed to disappoint, or do I start one of Royce Freeman/Dion Lewis, both against tough defenses, both bad?

With Michel still questionable and playing in the night game tonight, I might have to end up picking up a GB/SF RB to fill in if he gets ruled out late.

Surprisingly, for whatever reason, Ty Montgomery is the only GB back in my league who is owned. \_()_/

I'd still prefer to not have to drop anyone. My other options are to go ahead and bench Michel now and start either Lewis or Mike Davis.

@davidponte Dalvin Cook has been ruled out in the past hour or so.

This is a good thing. I have a feeling if he played today, he would've gone the same way as Fournette when he tried to rush back.

I'm very confident that Michel plays. But in case he doesn't, I have him in the Flex. That way if he's ruled out I can just sub in Geronimo Allison. And if Allison can't go, I have an open bench spot for any Sunday/Monday night players thanks to Cook getting the IR treatment yet again.
