OFFICIAL WEEK 1 SUNDAY MORNING FOOTBALL GAMETHREAD
By - AutoModerator
god bless the murray/hopkins stack
put up 170.4 this week fellas (12 team ppr). Feels good to finally have it go my way
Dude just gets yards
Monte is elite
Ridley, pitts, herbert, henry, james robinson all
shit the bed for me in a big way
Holy shit what mental gymnastics did I perform to convince myself my team was good
Very rough week 1 so far, phew
Why did I start gisecki
To second gisecki your decision 😂
Large week 1 oof for Barkley. Let’s hope they’re actually easing him into it. 👀
Picked Rodgers over Wilson in QB. FML
how the fuck do they call the previous one that was contact before he was down, against Bridgewater... but they don't call it there when Daniel Jones was down already. bullshit
Juwan Johnson looking like nice trade bait for a TE needy team
These fuckers going off on my bench are gonna be trash if I play them. Arghgdhuiddjdsui!!!
Fuck Daniel Jones just feed saquon
Jones looks horrible. Staring down his target no reads bad throws just bad honestly
Chubb's fumble was outta nowhere. He ran really well on that drive. Gotta keep feeding him.
People who started A Rod, how y’all feeling?
Almost as bad as people who started aiyuk... Oh wait! Thats me too!
I have both Rodgers and Adams, not great :/
I also have both Hill and CEH, but mahomes is running it himself/passing to Kelce. Doesn't help that opponent has Mahomes+Chubb
Man Metlifes field really is dogshit, can’t believe how much everyone is slipping and sliding on this astroturf. Easy to see how people get hurt so easily
Shep is going to be a huge week 1 pick up
So how much FAAB we putting in Mitchell
Joe Judge sucks
Chubb on pace for 4 touchdowns should be easy for him to get
That's such a dumb fumble rule. they should have to have a few points of contact before considered down on fumbles IMO but w.e that becomes too confusing I guess
phew i almost drafted jeudy
Dem Jones boys be juicy as fuck. Chandler is a monster
Uhh, what’s up with Saquon?
Giants are ass
limited snaps, but has looked decent when hes had the ball
Dang. I thought they were blowing smoke about limited snaps. I need some points!
Giants offense hasn't been on the field at all. The Broncos are sustaining 8+ minute drives
me too, but also the giants haven't had the ball on offense that much and most of their yardage were passes
Ah dang. Bad game flow for me.
he might get a td soon, giants are on a good drive
Lol did Jeudy bang Bridgwaters wife at some point after the 1st quarter or something
Are you even watching?
I said it a while ago in this group. The Saints are massively underrated. They’re better than last year. Their only loss is MT. Winston is an upgrade from Brees. Adebo is a great rookie corner. They’re healthy at linebacker. Saints are a great team, and as always they stuff the run. 2nd in the league last year.
- James Robinson
Fresh off a title last year. It’s been a tough week folks.
I drafted at the turn in a 10 team ppr league… my excitement when I got Aaron Jones and saquon was so high… brb gotta go beg Aaron Rodgers to throw a ****ing check down to his running back
Chubb saving me right now. Love that man. Fuckin hero
Aiyuk, Aaron Jones and CEH.
What a start.
Saquon hasn't performed at all since the 2019 championship week
I had to choose between the bullshit Barkley and swift news right before kickoff. I chose….poorly.
I started Henry and Tannehil because they were against Arizona- who lost Butler and Peterson
They combined for under 20 points
(I know generally speaking you want to avoid same day QB/RB but Herbert gave me the same 13 points against Washington, and Tanny was still the 6th highest scoring QB last year)
These rules for these QBs are ridiculous.
This rule has existed for over 10 years
That doesn't mean they aren't ridiculous dopey
It was established after both Carson Palmer and Tom Brady suffered season-ending knee injuries after low tackles, fans may not like it but it‘s a rule after all
You aren't listening to me. Idc about what you are saying.
This week is getting ugly. I might finish under 50 points. I'd be crying if it wasn't so hilariously bad.
Who on earth did you start? Aiyuk? Mostert? Zeke? All of the above?
Aaron Jones, Metcalf, JRob, Aiyuk, Koo, Cleveland DEF played so far. By the time Jones and CLE were on, it was already lost. 34 points.
I'm losing by more than I scored in one league thanks to Kyler, CMC and Amari.
Who had “Jared Goff will score 28 points” on their expectations list? Anybody?
Chubb bout to single-handedly destroy me.
You’re not alone brother.
I am at full Chubb
Relatively light on injuries this week, you love to see it
Saints Offense gonna be alright
Patrick Mahomesom Hill
Just run CEH in for fuck sake
my mostert aaron jones combo not looking too hot right now
Imagine my face when Derrick Henry was picked ahead of me instead of Kamara
RBs are Cook and Jrob. WRs are AJ brown, Godwin and Corey Davis. Only week one but seems like Davis is gonna blow up, should I package Jrob and godwin for a better RB or too early to panic on Jrob? 12 team league. Thx
Kamara saving my week
Thought we turned a corner and would be using CEH more. Thought wrong.
I had to drop Jones Jr for Booker, and I miss him
JRob, Aiyuk, Pittman, Ridley just need a cheeky hundred points from Barkley, Mahomes and TY'SON
someone get me some copium please....
Why didn't I grab Damien Harris everywhere
Started Josh Allen with Randall Cobb at flx and missed out on Jalen Hurts and Jamaal Williams at flx. Damn
Chubb woulda got that 1st down
Should I panic about Najee?
As a steelers fan, our o-line is terrible but najee is good. Ben barely over threw him on two passes as well. I expect better games out of him
I wouldnt just yet. Early season rookies are hit or miss. He got the workload which is what im excited about. Hes just got to be less hesitant because his line isnt doing him any favors.
Not yet, Bills defense is legit and week 1 is always kind of a crapshoot.
My aiyuk/kittle stack was underwhelming to say the least.
Corey davis going in for aiyuk for sure
So how much FAB we spending on Elijah Mitchell?
I'm seriously tempted to go up to 50. I'm desperate for a RB2 and free agency is completely barren in my league (14 team)
Yeah I have Barkley and Najee and nothing else at Rb. And they have concerns as well. If we hear anything about the severity of Mostert I may go 40 or 50 myself.
Damien Harris is looking sexy
M Hardman is ready to hurt me again isn’t he
I said I'd never go back after last season
And here we are again
Oh no I didn't pick him up. Today I'm being disappointed by *checks notes* ah yes Davante adams and Justin jefferson.
Started Zeke and Robinson… :( but also started Lockett and Davis :)
Is Corey Davis WR2 material? Mike Evans is my WR2 but with all the targets that Brady has in Tampa I just feel very pessimistic about evans going forward, I’m thinking of going with Corey
I'd say in 12+ leagues for sure. Ringer and Footballers both mentioned a ton of chemistry/targets between him and Wilson
Well RIP Rhamondre.
Not listening to reddit/experts for my draft strategy is really paying off for me this week.
Scrambling for stats showing that week 1s are typically filled with anomalies and my team wont suck this bad next week
Shanahan has to be purposely trolling Aiyuk fantasy owners 🤣
I feel like this is Dante Pettis treatment 2.0
On the bright side I don't see how it can get any worse from here
I feel for all the Dalvin Cook owners out there. I really do. That was a fucked call, no question about it.
Now let me celebrate starting Ja’Marr “can’t catch a football” Chase who made his regular season debut with 101 receiving yards, 5 receptions and a touchdown.
The non TD on Justin Jefferson was even worse.
Scott Hanson is a real Hip Hop head
That coach has no business throwing bows.
Dalvin goes down, they call a fumble, show the replay 50 times and he clearly didn’t fumble, commentators repeatedly say they’ll obviously have to call that back since he was down, NOPE somehow a fumble that costs me at least 2 points and leads to my opponent getting 4. Glad to see the refs are already in mid season form.
Edit: I lost my Week 1 matchup by 5 points. I hate everything.
It's been several minutes and Kamara doesn't have any TDs. This is bullshit. -_-
That Dalvin Cook fumble is royally fucking me
“Fumble” that clearly wasn’t a fumble just cost me at least 2 points and resulted in my opponent getting 4 more points. Absolutely ridiculous.
MCPFERSON FOR THE W! THATS MY KICKER!!
Did not expect the Bengals to come out of week 1 with a win
Pats defense starting out bad smh
Sorry for ever doubting you chase
Joe Burrows is like nah fuck yall defenses
Fellas r we boutta c a EMC walkoff
My dart throw at Chris Evans may have missed the board. Had he had even 1 snap?
Yeah I think for now can move on in redraft and check in if he gets more playing time. Still a nice dynasty stash I think.
Look at them measure that ball to the millimeter with that raggedy taped-up chain
What are we doing Aiyuk owners?
My friend is an Aiyuk owner and started him but he also started Dak, Aaron Jones, Mixon, Devonta Smith, Pittsburgh D, and Greg Zurlein. So yeah he’s probably gonna win his game this week
I made a move for Russell Gage and played him instead of Aiyuk. 🤡 I was at least right about Aiyuk.
I stashed away both Aiyuk and Gage for safe keeping....
We have now arrived to the Q&A section where we can figure out who else is ~~complete garbage~~ underrated and worth picking up.
Was he out or did he play?
I didn’t watch the whole game but he was getting snaps early, literally didn’t get targeted though. I’m so confused
Yeah I have no clue what happened
Losing week one.
Almost can't tell the color difference between Browns and Chiefs
It's week 1. Everyone panic!!!
Full Chubb rn.
Welcome to the Browns experience. We always full Chubb
Seemed clearly down to me. That's just a miss.
Joe Burrow blew the refs
The Justin Jefferson TD and the Cook fumble were both clear and obvious and should have been overturned. This new review officiating is bullshit.
Fucking "clear and obvious" bullshit. NFL will go with the wrong call just to protect the refs authority
Like, they didn't see that shit live, just go off the video
Damn Baker is really targeting Hooper and Njoku. Hooper MIGHT just be a back end te1 in bad running games.
refs in the Bengal's pocket
That would require Mike Brown to spend money
Ok, so Aiyuk is killing me and I’m trying to remember that they are going to switch QBs and just to stash him. Right...right??!?
Joe Mixon can just run this into the end zone thank you.
Cook was clearly down
Let's go Browns!!!!!!!
Are we at half Chubb or full Chubb?
Just end me man
Fellow Henry/Ridley owners hold me.
I need Rodgers to ball out.
Davante Chubb and Mahomes I need 80 from you
One cheek = two knees
Bro wtf is this Bengals game
That’s a fumble
You’re blind as shit
I think his butt touched the ground first.
Was Aiyuk on the field for most of the game?
Aiyuk, 0 Targets. I don't understand it
Started him over Cooks. Feels bad man.
Did the exact same.
Shouldn’t have listened to the SF rush defense truthers
I started Hunt over Swift...
My Niners D went from hero to zero in a flash
I just need Lamar to put up 117 points Monday and I got this in the bag
I just need Saquon to outscore Lamar by 20. Easy.
Cooper and Thielen at the 4/5 turn is looking like a big W for me. Jefferson and Lamb drafted in rounds 2 and 3
I picked up Jefferson as a keeper in 14 and I'm still pissed lol
OT gonna inflate the points a bit plus this was a two td game. That’s what thielan does with the tds, but there’s gonna be huge regression and some bust games just like usual with him.
Give me something out of Ja’Marr in this OT
I’m gonna replace Matt Ryan on my bench with Jameis, fuck it
My sweet sweet Chubb welcome back sweetheart
49ers D just let Lions offense get some many points from third quarter onward. Went from 16 to 7 points.
Also imma throw this out there
I love yall
I dont know if i could live thru football season without you psycho reactionary fuckers, you guys keep me sane
Urban is the new Gase
This but unironically
Baker take us to the promised land
Jameis now Hill.
Gotta love a 3% win chance before the afternoon games ever start lmaoooo
I was at 2% now at 78
Gimme some more chark points
Ok, it seems my RB1 is Damien instead of Najee. Let‘s go!
Fuck lol should’ve flexed Callaway probably
