DK. Benching for the Sun God
Is this the move? I’m in the same position. Just nervous cuz swifty coming back
Nah I feel like swift just opens up the offense more
I mean I think so. DK’s been extremely underwhelming the past 7 weeks and Amon-Ra has been the Lions’ whole offense. I do think his ceiling is lowered a bit with Swift back but I think he’ll still get his
The biggest thing I’d be worried about is the weather in Seattle. Supposed to downpour with 10-20 mph winds per weather.com. If Mitchell plays, going to play him over Sun God
Oh shit I didn’t know that. Might have to pivot now, gotta monitor that weather. Mitchell should have a good game
Late, but you should check out Fantasy Football Weather Guys, they're on top of all that weather stuff as it relates to fantasy.
I don’t even care if Sun God busts. I’ve had so much fun playing him these last few weeks. No way I’m stopping now
Lmao love it, gotta have fun that’s why we play
I dumb-lucked my way into AJB, AB, and ARSB, in addition to the Tee Higgins and Cooper Kupp I drafted.
I think I have to sit The Sun God, right? AB was the lowest performer out of all of them last week but… contract incentives.
Edit: would be sick to start and all Brown WR corps tho
Lmao it would. Think you gotta roll with Kupp, AJB, and Tee tho
3WR + Flex, one of AB and Sun God gonna play. I can't trust Chase in the flex with Conners heel allowing him even near the field... dirty TD vulturing monster.
Lmao yeah if Conner sits I’d definitely play Edmonds. If he plays I think AB and the Sun God are both good plays
Tee over AB?
Benching for Frow
Why? Isn't DK primed for another TD this week?
I mean even with the TD he only scored 12
Oh yea definitely on the bench. I got excited last week when he scored a fn TD for once, but then he proceeded to do nothing for the rest of the game. He's riding the pine.
Got DJ Moore or Cooper Im starting instead of him
Same but benching Lockett for Amon Ra
I’m debating bench both CPatt and Dk
I'm starting DK and benching patterson
Yeah same. Starting penny over patt.
Who you starting over him?
I’m starting RoJo over him
Same. Let's celebrate on Monday!
I’m starting OBJ against the Swiss cheese Ravens secondary.
Same benching him for Swift 🤞🏽
Same here, Starting Penny over CPatt, not feeling too hot about it
I dropped him hoping my opponent would pick him up and start him
Me too. My opponent is starting him now. Oh boy.
It will either be an all time great move or backfire horrendously. But I can't imagine mclaurin doing much against the eagles defense in the forecasted bad weather.
CeeDee as I have AB and Justin Jefferson and can play only 2
Yeah but it’s a league that gives a half point per carry so you gotta play a RB there I have RoJo and Monty and my dude Sony ready to roll
Wtf is that scoring lmao
I know man it’s dumb but you can fleece the guys that aren’t paying attention as they don’t understand why Taysom is a better play than Herbert some weeks. Perfect example last week Sony went for 40 and AB only 20
Idk but I think he just really likes running backs
I’ve heard of .1pt per carry to cancel out qb kneels, which is dumb in the first place but this makes no sense
.1ppc is completely reasonable too as the implications are pretty mild. .5 is actually game changing
I joined a league once and everyone voted for return yards counting the same as rush/receiving. My strategy was to look at who the worst kickers were at getting touchbacks and choosing the main return man for the opposing team for my flex every week. Also figuring in was FG rate. Danny Amendola won me a playoff game with like 30+ pts I think because he returned a million kicks.
For real though. Half a point per carry? Your only option is starting 3 rb’s. I play in a standard PPR league and have only started 3 rb’s twice all season. It’s a 12 man league and RB’s are hard to come by. I have Damien Harris, Elijah Mitchell, Antonio Gibson and Wilson Jr.
I also play in a league that uses this setting (was voted in as a rule this year..) and JTs highest scoring week was 70pts in week 11 vs buf.
Henry’s was 70 week 2 vs Seattle
Edit: also a 1 point PPR league.. I could only imagine kamara/cmcs best seasons 😂
a 20 carry RB gets an additional 10 points? So they could run into brick walls every play, get a 20/0/0 statline, and still have the equivalent points of 100 yards rushing?
is it at least PPR?
Yes again I didn’t come up with it I just use my knowledge of it to my advantage and yes it’s ppr
Also Deebo has been a cheat code in this league as well as Henry the first 8 weeks
Jesus, yeah. Henry had to have been a fucking monster.
Holy fuck that is ridiculous. Bell-cow RBs are overly scarce/valuable already and this just makes it worse.
That’s pretty insane scoring for RBs, don’t fault you for flexing RBs. King Henry getting 28-30 carries per game giving you a 15 pt floor without yards/TDs sounds pretty ridiculous.
I have a feeling that we should bench Jefferson. It’s going to be cold and I don’t trust cousins in a big spot.
Agreed. I feel there’s gonna be a lot of running that game.
With Thielen out I feel like I gotta start JJ. He tore them up in week 11 and my guess is the Vikings are playing from behind all game forcing Cousins to throw the ball quite a bit.
I’m sitting him as well, have AJ Brown, Kupp, Waddle, and AB over him
I don’t get how anyone could start him this week. He’s had 3-4 above average games all season. He’s been on my bench since midseason and my team has been better for it with waiver wire streams every week.
Anyone looking for a homerun play hes as good as any
They just don't give him the volume he should get is the problem.
It’s Terry for me too and debating between M. Carter or OBJ in the flex
Currently debating between terry and edmonds ppr
I also have both of these guys in ppr. I’d go Edmonds for sure.
Barkley. Fuck that dude
Gonna miss out on those sweet 13 carries for 50 yds and 2 rec for 7
That would be a good day for him honestly
Almost 4 yards/carry? Not on my Giants.
8 points in ppr? Foh I'd throw a party
Same. Benched for Ogunbowale.
Same. Gonna drop him tomorrow and already looking forward to it. May crack open a bottle of wine.
Same, I’m petty enough to keep him off my championship team considering I made it there despite taking him with my first pick
Yeah, me too. What a garbage pick.
He said best not worst.
Benching for Brandin Cooks
Benched for foreman and Jordan howard
Meanwhile Im starting Rex burkhead....
Damn sexy rexy
Rex is my RB one this week. Hobbled my way into the finals
Yep. Though mine is the third place game I basically have barely enough players to field a competitive team. By bench will be Gabriel Davis and some handcuffs/backup RBs
Aaron Jones for Swift.
got Kamara, Jones, Swift and RoJo. Deciding which three to start this week between them four and Waddle has been incredibly difficult. I change my lineup multiple times a day lolol
I’m sitting Jones for Rojo and I agree with you. Lot of question marks with him this week.
Oh god I have to make this exact decision and I will feel like an idiot if Aaron Jones goes off on my bench
Not my team, but I’d start swift. But don’t blame you for going with Jones.
I have to decide between Jones, Swift, AJ Brown or Diontae for my flex and I have no idea what the right move is.
For reference my starting RBs are Ekeler/Mixon and WRs are Kupp/Diggs.
Bruh how is your team so stacked?
Lockett or Hollywood Brown.
Not getting ahead of Johnson, Higgins, or Diggs this week.
Yep. Grateful for Hollywood's contributions earlier this season, but it's time for the Sun God to shine (plus Chase and Deebo)
Started Saquan every game so far that he’s been playing. But not this time. It’s a miracle I’m in the championship
In between him and Renfrow for my flex spot rn - tuff.
Starting Sony Michel and Darrell Williams over him.
I posted in a thread last week about starting Parker over Amari. Several folks talked me out of it, and I’m very glad they did lol. He’ll be on the bench again for the championship game!
Javontae. Wanna play him but can’t trust the offense. He’s behind rojo, Sony and Ekeler
Jacobs, 12 team league
He’s still in for a decent workload. And the colts run D still allowed Fournette to go for 4 TDs, so I think there’s a good floor for him.
-Coming from a desperate Jacobs owner
No doubt, he’s been great. I’m benching him for juicy matchups, JT, Rojo and Damien Harris
Jacobs over Damien if Rhamondre is playing.
Jacobs or Penny?
Who are you starting instead? My RBs are Jacobs, Montgomery, Javonte Williams, Boston Scott and Jordan Howard.
I’m in a similar boat. I’ve got Kamara, Sony, Javonte, and Jacobs. I’m currently benching Javonte but I could make an argument to bench any of them (including Kamara).
Im going sony over jacobs
Probably DK, or Hollywood.
It’s between one of them in PPR. Feel like Hollywood gets more looks.
Same, benching both behind Frow(wr2) and Darrell (flex)
Benching Hollywood but he's been there since mid season
It’s looking like Huntley will be the ravens qb again, I’m hoping for a repeat of that drive in Green Bay when he threw like 6 check downs in a row to Hollywood
Renfrow for Amon Ra
I think I've plugged (my) first round pick maybe 3 times this year. Bad
I have to bench either AJ Brown or Antonio Brown, can’t decide
AB is a must start
I couldn’t. I’m starting/flexing both.
Yep, definitely going with Brown on this one
Who you got other than them that you’d would bench one?
I lucked out with the Sony owner dropping him after his first good game when Henderson was injured, so now I’m leaning on Chubb, Ekeler, and Sony.
Damn what a luxury lol
K. Allen... I think I am at least
Benching Allen to start Waddle and AJB
That's a tough one , who would you start over him? I feel like he's good for at least 10 points minimum and can get up to 20 with a TD
Pittman I think.
Yeah, he's the WR1 with no competition for targets and I still don't trust him.
I feel bad for actively wanting Wentz to stay out just to have more confidence in that decision.
I’m gonna have to choose between the lot of Mitchell, AJ Dillon, BoScott, Conner, Pittman, Cooks and Cooper for 2 flex and 1 RB. I just feel like Pittman is in a tough matchup, but it still hurts.
I keep going back and forth on this one. Only WR... but JT will carry the team. Las Vegas won’t be racking up points against their good defense. I don’t think they’ll need to throw the ball at all
Benching Josh Allen for Glennon
Elite fantasy management right there
Juedy. I think he's an awesome player just in a shitty QB situation
I dropped him weeks ago. Haven’t looked back.
Should be a safe bet, he hasn't done anything all season
Y u sit Kittle?
A lot of us are hesitant over the whole Jimmy injury / Lance potential starting situation. A lot of unknowns leaving us looking for something less questionable. I don’t know what to do for shit between Kittle and Gronk - my body says Gronk and Tommy want to slaughter the Jets but my brain says Kittle still gets the volume gronk wishes he could handle. Championship week gets us thinking too much lol
Dallas D. Benching for Miami defense. Also James Connor, benching for Jordan Howard if he plays
My bench is absolutely horrible, I don’t know how I made it this far. AJ green is my best healthy player on the bench
Probably scary terry. My bench is looking hella thin after injuries to fournette and James Robinson
Man Kamara has scored less than all my other RB’s the last two weeks and I got a good waiver wire pickup. I don’t know what to do
Who did you pick up? I’m considering benching him. I have Monty, rojo, and Darrell. Considering benching him for darrell
Trying to decide whether I should play Damien Harris or Sony Michel...
Dak. Gone for Burrow over him instead.
As of now Swift for RoJo in my flex. JT and Mixon are my starters.
Probably Tyreek Hill. Really don't love hearing about how exhausted he is in practice.
You must have great receivers, and you’ve obviously made some great calls to get here. But is there anybody more likely to score 40 in any given week than Tyreek?
Or 4… you never know. Him and Keenan Allen threw my semi game so hard, playing for 3rd bow
Sorry to hear that lol I understand why you’d be salty… I survived his shit game last week so I’m not too concerned. It’s easy from my vantage point to chalk it up to fatigue and expect a freak athlete to get his wind back with another week
I also think you forgot he was literally activated 24 hrs before the game from the covid-reserve list to play. Mike Evans in his first practice back from the covid-reserve list was reportedly extremely fatigued. Go figure - he just came back from covid. Tyreek should be fine
This is a really bad take unless you have davante and kupp. Start your studs, you’re gonna look like a clown when he pops off this week
Thanks for the reality check. I'm probably being an idiot. This thread is convincing me to just go ahead with Tyreek.
My other receivers are Adams, AJB and Higgins
Personally I think diontae on the bench is a mistake but it’s definitely a close call with your receiving corps
Who would you bench? I agree its a very tough decision..
But then again Higgins is one of the hotter players in fantasy. Think I’m talking myself out of that one
See? I've gone back and forth several times myself..
Best of luck in the final days of 2021 lineup tinkering. God knows I’ll have a busy few days of it myself
AJ but it’d be between him and Higgins just because of Higgins’ few games with single digits and a KC defense that shut down pissburgh last week
Edit: “pissburgh” was 100% a typo but leaving it for others to enjoy. Love you Big Ben happy retirement
I’m between diontae and AJ brown I’m leaning Diontae. Big Ben getting to call plays in his last ever home game sounds like 20 targets for DJ
Had him benched last week for AB, Jefferson then flexed Jeff Wilson Jr. Only time all season I've had him benched too.
Zeke for Ronald Jones
Gibson for RoJo, Chubb and Sony
Aaron Jones. Sony, Mont and Mixon instead.
Benching Brady, DK, Brandin Cooks, Darrel Williams
Terry? Idk if I should. Only got Bateman and Landry on the bench.
Also Najee maybe? Would be playing rojo
Debating cooks vs sun god
Zeke, Keenan Allen or CeeDee Lamb or AJ Brown. Also I dropped mclaurin this week
Swift, Diontae, and gibson
McClaurin in one league (easy decision) and either Aaron Rogers or Joe Burrow in the other.
Tom Brady. Ever heard of him?
I have Kyler Murray (starting) and Hurts. Brady is without Godwin and Evans in an easy win game…
Kamara for waddle
Don’t know if I should start Cooks over the Sun God
Scoredarrelle. He took me this far, but I can't trust him against the Bills in the finals.
Cordarelle. Benching for the Sun God.
Damien Harris even after the big game last week. Sony and Rojo are my backs and Amon Ra is my flex.
Kamara. I need more.
I have Sony Michel and the 49ers backs I’m considering benching him. If Tayson is back I might go with him still .
Maybe goedert. I hate jalen hurts
Sun God and Damien Harris for now
Cordarrelle (like 90% certain I’m gonna play Penny….85% certain)
Javonte. But still torn if I wanna sit him for Tee.
Either Hollywood or Swifty. Probably sitting Hollywood.
Aiyuk and Cooks
Three of Josh Jacobs, DK, RoJo and Justin Jackson.
Right now I'm leaning RoJo in .5 PPR
Ceedee because I’m starting Aj Brown, Jefferson and Mitchell at flex.
I'd play Ceedee over Mitchell personally
Probably Waddle. Haven't fully decided who to bench between him, K. Allen, Diggs, and Deebo
I'm either benching or dropping Barkley, Terry and probably Kittle
I have JT, Eli Mitchell, and Ronald Jones. I’m absolutely playing Ronald Jones against the Jets. Jacobs vs Mitchell is close, but if Mitchell is good to go I’m inclined to play him at home against Houston.
Gronk, have andrews at TE and playing Singletary at flex
Diontae Johnson - Big Ben is absolutely terrible
