I'm curious to know what faab bids people are putting in for Wilson.
I'm worried I'm already way too high, but this is to remove the stink of JuJu from my starting line-up.
I dropped 30% which was double the next highest , but no regrets. I wasn’t let him slip through. Not that much potential.
Yeah I bid $36 and next highest was $16 lol
Yep can't let the possible JJ or Chase fall through. Best to spend FAAB early to maximize its earning potential
I dropped 40% and don’t even need a WR.
I’ve seen as high as 40%+ in earlier threads. All depends on your league tho!
I thought 40% would be enough but some psycho went 80
It’s was me, I’m the psycho
Not a psycho, its more likely than not that there won't be a better pickup all year that you will be able to use most of the year
I bid 46 and the next highest was 45 🤣
I bid 37/100 and won. I am extremely desperate for a WR though. Was starting Robert Woods for the last two weeks lol.
Same boat. Luckily got him for 30
Bid 26, next highest was 12%
I put down 429 (of a total $1,000 for the season) and the guy with the highest bid was almost double that with $808.
Don't get me wrong, I love Garrett but that's just fucking stupid.
Holding FAB is a dumb move. You can't take it home with you. It's always best to spend it early because that's when the breakouts happen. Wilson could be the guy. It's not stupid to spend 80 percent on a guy you believe could take you to the championship.
My only issue with Garrett is we don't know how Zach Wilson will play when he inevitably ends up the starter again.
Of course. There are almost always potential risks with waiver pickups. That's why they're on waivers. But if his usage continues to grow, spending 80 percent of FAB isn't stupid. Lots of people hoard their FAB and never use it. Spend it all in the first several weeks because you won't find the value later in the season.
Someone dropped 56% on him in my league
Got Garrett Wilson as the number 7 priority waiver in one league.
Lost Garrett Wilson to another guy who bid $72 in another league (I bid $58).
1/2 ain’t bad, at least I can root for him more on Sundays now
I feel much worse about bidding $21 now, guess we'll see!
Good luck my friend. I thought I for sure had it.
Used #1 on jimmy g in a 12 team super flex. There is legit no one left
That’s a great move. Honestly Jimmy G will be good
So glad to be finally rid of Kmet..
Dropped him for Irv
Same, was torn between him and higbee but realized higbee was already owned which made my decision a lot easier
Same. Chose Irv over Thomas Gesicki and Engram. Hopefully it pans out
Glad Irv is the WW hype in Week 2 while I started him Week 1 and got a 0...
Dropped him for engram. 2$
Dropped him last week and Taysom outscored Kmet by 1.4. Huge win for me.
On to Engram for $1!
Hoping for 3-4 ppr points.
Easy there buddy. Reaching for the stars
Obviously I need to drop him… but I have no idea for who. It’s always a wasteland at TE, but this year it seems like I can only pick up goose-egg producers.
Hayden Hurst, Logan Thomas, Tyler Conklin, Irv Smith, and Juwan Johnson were all available on my 10-team waiver wire last night. No one claimed Hurst or Conklin, ended up scooping Hurst. Really high on him tbh.
Dropped him for Garrett Wilson. I'm shocked I got him, I was at the bottom of the waiver order.
OP is the current WW winner for posting this thread within 30 secs of waivers processing
I am going to enjoy scrapping the guys dropped. Waiver wire doesn't seem that exciting tonight.
People always seem to give up on guys way too early in the first couple of weeks. I usually get better players just waiting for rage drops than I do grabbing the trendy new pickup of the week.
I got breece hall because someone dropped him after week 1, seemed crazy to me.
Jesus, the man got like 10 targets week 1. Who sees a RB getting double digit targets and is like “nah”. I guess in a standard league maybe
Someone dropped Waddle at this point last year and made a snide comment about rummaging through his trash when I picked him up lol
Burks just got dropped in my 12 teamer, definitely worth a claim right?
12 team, yes
10 team, maybe depends on team
Kenneth Walker III was dropped, gonna try to snag him and hold. I think he takes over by mid season.
Take over what is my concern. He was dropped in my league too and I can see why, him and Penny got like 5 points combined last week.
Yeah I also dropped Walker. Seahawks don't look good at all.
Someone dropped Conner in my league, wish I never picked up a second waiver player..
Chargers defense for $5
Jared Goff for $0 FAAB
Excellent adds. Paid $4 for Chargers last week!
Chargers D looks low key amazing. Samuel could have had 3 INT's last week if he didn't have duck hands, I think they could be really good.
Missed out on Garrett Wilson in one league (19% vs 27%), but got Elijah Moore as my consolation prize for 1%
Not a bad consolation prize at all. I see them balancing each other out throughout the season. Not a bad thing. Just lots of mouths to feed on that Jets offense.
Got Engram for free. Still considering Hurst and Gesecki though. Any thoughts?
Dropped Burkhead because I'm not quite ready to drop Schultz yet
Engram legit could be #2 target on a decent enough team with an improved Trevor. Hold for sure
Who you guys like more, philly or charger def??
Both have juicy schedules ROS. I’m rolling with the Chargers for the next 3 weeks, barring any major injuries.
Same. Dropped Broncos for them. I think Jax gonna have a wake-up call this weekend.
Chargers? Injuries? Nah.
I also picked them up.
Dude in my league dropped 51 on Wilson 🤯
At least there seems to be value there going forward, one of my league mates spent $100 on Taysom Hill last week…the next highest bid was $1
Did he think the budget reset every week? This is our first year doing FAAB and my buddy bid 67 on lance and 33 on Samuel last week lol
I don’t actually have much of a problem with this. In a 12 team league it’s pretty rare that someone actually worth trying hard to pick up comes along. I see people in my league every year who have bad teams with like $70 left over because they were afraid to spend. I mean why not spend big on players with a lot of potential to ensure you get him? Who else are we waiting for? A stud running back who comes out of nowhere and somehow isn’t already handcuffed on an opponents bench? That’s crazy rare. I say go wild and blow some big cash when you really want a player.
81 was dropped in my league.
Did it for Kobe
Going for the stash of Brian Robinson on my IR and pick up of Devonta Smith. Hopefully we get both. At this point have gallup on my ir so he will move to bench and will also drop khalil herbert for devonta smith.
I got Jimmy Garroppolo in 10 man Superflex where no QB's were available(including Pickett, Watson being gone). I saw one team had literally 1 QB with lance down. Other had 2 QB with Baker Mayfield as one of them. So I was predicting we might see some people go all in for him.
So, I bid **$82**(100% of my money) for Jimmy G. I got him. Here are the other bids.
Seems I was WAY WAY WAY off. I had my bid set at $51, but then I saw another yahoo league of mine process and the highest bid was $50, which spooked me, so I raised it to $82 in this league to ensure I got him. Regretting that. Oh well, at least I got him and won't be at the mercy of the 2 people in the league who hoarded all the QB's.
Your league should consider roster limits for QB, like 2 or 3
Jimmy went 200/200 in my 12 team sf dynasty. Don’t sweat it. It’s better to overpay vs underpay and stare into the abyss
Yes, end of year half the teams in the league will still have almost all of their damn FAAB. IMO this is the time to use it.
If it helps you feel any better, I spent all my FAAB on him in a superflex league as well. I fully expected bids of $50 and up because some of my league mates are struggling at QB. No one else placed a bid even near that amount. I feel like people generally underestimate the value of a QB2-type player in superflex. Oh well, at least we won’t have to stress over waivers moving forward.
I think you predicted well and your leaguemates are just insane for not dumping a chunk on Jimmy in their situations.
Ouch. Hope it works out for you and Free Agency treats you nicely!
I feel like complete trash every week doing this on espn but it’s not a choice anymore. Prepare to check the app 180 times over the next 90min
There’s probably been nights I’ve checked close to 1,000 times if I was obsessed with a defense or something and it took a while for waivers to clear. Absolutely repulsive behavior
Easily just watering at the mouth for someone to make a mistake and drop a young king and than it finally clears and no one of value and you know it’s going to happen lol
You have triggered a traumatic response in my body. That is so fuckin accurate lol
I got Henderson and Curtis Samuel last week and I got Garrett Wilson this week. Extremely happy with my waiver plays currently at 1-1
What WW priority were you? Or FAAB?
2nd this week first last week. Dude who had first this week is 0-2 and doesn’t check his app until Thursday or Sunday so it was basically first
Adding those 3 are major. Good shit
I'm the 3 priority.. Chances of getting Wilson or Meyers?
Jimmy G went $200/200
DMont was dropped. Put down $50
Why would anybody drop him after he looked amazing in week 2? Wild to me.
I had a audible holy shit when I saw it
Bro do $100 lol
He’s a 3rd round pick RB… you spend the max to get him.
Yeah dmont is worth 100% don’t cheap out
Wow. Hopefully you get him
Lot of nothing on waivers in my league. Picked up Goff and Hurst for Fields and Kmet.
Goff is a sleeper. Best OL in football, tons of target that fits his arm strength and a strong running game.
I dropped Fields for him
Honestly debating taking Goff and Kittle for Burrow in Superflex
Cant believe all these people are getting Wilson off waivers. He was drafted and held in all 4 of my leagues
Week 3 waivers going through during week 7 on espn
Someone dropped Elijah Moore for Wilson... tempting
Moore should still be rostered. Depends on who you’re willing to drop
I just picked up Mostert, my WRs are pretty strong considering (Sutton, Williams, London, C Samuel, Bateman), but still tempting
Bro same I have 1st waiver and I’m thinkin bout puttin in a claim…
Missed out on Garrett Wilson, but got Tua off waivers! Grabbed Chargers D and Logan Thomas for free so I’m pleased
Very nice. I snagged Chargers D in a few leagues for free once waivers opened. Worth it
Garrett Wilson with the 7th priority. Still tripping.
Wasn’t even taken in my league. Scooped him up this morning.
the guy with Diggs and Higgins stole G. Wilson out from under me
fuck you cliff you asshole
Espn cuties let us know when they clear
One of mine did, the other didn’t
How did the times compare with last week?
Mine already cleared this week. Last week it took 2-3 hours longer
Espn just cleared for me 45min earlier than last week
My main ESPN league just cleared
I got Garrett Wilson for $34 in one league and Dotson in another for $12.
Got eagles def for free. Want to pick up one of Corey Davis or Sammy Watkins but can't decide
They were dropped in my league. I’m dropping browns for them
Dameon Pierce and Jared Goff
Can’t fucking believe I’m playing Jared Goff over Tom Brady but here we are
Got tua .. now I have him as my qb in all my leagues.. ride or die
Got Tua for $11 in my league lmao
I got him for $5 😂
Went for 85$ in my league. Yikes
It’s okay I went $61
Quick question, are you able to see this in Yahoo?
You can check it on the web version of yahoo, go to your team > league > transactions > fab offers and you’ll see the list. I don’t believe you can see it on the app
Ah ic, I only use the app. Wicked, thank you!
Yep. ESPN never fails
I made a trade to free up spots so had a lot to add. In free agency grabbed Mostert, Eagles, Gallup, Engram, and Goff. Also moved up to #1 waiver claim.
Edit: switched out Gallup for Shep. No IR and weak at WR
That’s a win all around my man. Very nice.
Managed to get garret wilson and Dotson dropped kmet and Devin singletary, half ppr
Got Garrett Wilson for $41. Next highest was $36
I got Wentz (I was the Lance owner) and Dobbins who got dropped in a full PPR, 10 teams League.
I dropped Lance and Mooney.
Would y’all pick up Sterling Shepard and drop Mooney ?
I did 🥲
I wouldn't drop Mooney yet, unless you *need* Shepard this week.
I dropped Mooney for Jameson Williams.
The hope is worth more than what Mooney offered…
Lmao. I feel that
Got Tua for $33
$41 here, it was close because the next bidder had $6
Kill me lol. Oh well, needed Lance replacement and also got Kirk for $0 to spot start this week.
Someone in my league dropped 50% on Wilson
That was me. I am someone.
Not surprised at all to be honest! Who does he have for his WRs?
Am Ron, Jeudy, Juju and Julio. Don’t blame him but I’m scared of Zach Wilson
Man’s knew what he wanted
Somehow pulled Wilson at 6th priority LFG!
League mate dropped Kenneth Walker
Edit: I picked up Dotson.
Edit 2: Someone else dropped Khalil Herbert
Khalil Herbert is a lottery ticket at best, so I’m not surprised at him being dropped. He’s on my roster and I’m thinking of dropping him.
Yeah, I had to drop. Already have lottery tickets in Pacheco and mattison
What size league? I'm debating dropping Herbert for Robinson
I’m in a league with a 5rb roster limit.
I have Penny. Drop Khalil herbert for walker?
My waivers on Yahoo still haven't processed.. Weird though because anyone without a claim is available but all those that have a claim are still pending.
Olave was dropped last week, picked him up with the quickness. Saw more snaps than Landry and had like 300+ air yards? For a rookie? Ya. The breakout the second half of the season is coming
Picked him up for $3 last week. Love his upside
Only thing stopping him is an injured Jameis. I wish I got him but I prioritized Tua instead in case Herberts ribs fall apart.
any day espn wtf
Does or did Mike Evans also have an injury designation before the suspension?
I ask because he is sitting in an IR slot on my opponent's team and was under the impression that isn't allowed in my league (which is based of the ESPN standard rosters formats/rules).
He was listed as out, which espn allows to be put on IR. He's since been changed to suspended
Someone in my league had dropped Dameon Pierce, spent like 40% FAAB on him. Spent another 25% or so on Tua. First year doing FAAB, hope I didn’t blow my load too early but feel like both were rare opportunities.
yeah no brainer on dame
Damn, didn’t hit my bid on Goff…
With Russ as my starter and Flacco, Garopollo, Mariota, and Lawrence up for grabs who should I throw a dart at? I have some deadweight on my bench I can drop
Fuck it Flacco
NFL slow af
Jimmy G in a 2 QB league for $32. Tyler Higbee for $8
I got the Tyler Conklin and passed up on Evan Engram. Will I regret this in full PPR?
2 espn leagues both still yet to clear
Well, I spent 80% of my FAAB on Darrell henderson and Curtis Samuel last week so I don't have many hopes for the big FAAB bids moving forward lol but I did manage to snag Chris olave for 2% and the chiefs D as a free pick up. I put 7% on garret wilson but he ended up going for 33%. Oh well, I have olave and Burks so plenty of potential on the roster still.
Just got Garrett Wilson with my #5 waiver priority. Really didn't think I had a chance. I feel like this is the guy
Dotson, j rob, Eli Moore
I decided not to go for Wilson as I have Kupp, AJB, Terry, mt, Godwin. I did get eagles D. Unforunatrly didn’t get Tua as the guy who had lance needed a qb, but I have Stafford so should be ok.. though I’ll prob drop Brady as he has no weapons
Grabbed G. Wilson for $19 in a .5 ppr 14 man league!
Got Garett Wilson for $53, next highest had been 47.
I moved up from 43 before I fell asleep.
I'm now holding these bench receivers:
G wilson, Olave, Burks
I also bought Curtis last week for $17. Him & Wilson have made my lineup instantly after recruitment.
My Yahoo league still hasn't processed.. hmm
goin all in on jimmy g
Dropped Hunter Henry. So that’s a W
Former Lance owner so I got pornstar jimmy and mariota.. also got my kmet replacement in Irv Smith but very upset cause he was my last choice, all the others I wanted were gone but whatever not a bad dart throw. also got saints d
Man that is a rough fucking QB and TE situation my guy
Dropped $85 for Garrett Wilson and next highest was $51
Have noticed that waivers have cleared in my two leagues that do waiver order and my two leagues that do faab haven’t cleared. Makes me think faab takes longer? Im in one of each format on yahoo and espn
Been waiting almost 40 mins for yahoo…
Yahoo is ass, sleeper baby so quick with it
Normal people are asleep and wake up to see who they got. We are degenerates lol
I have #1 priority in my work league and will be losing no sleep on my claim for Garrett Wilson.
Going for Irv in a FAAB format for my other league. Kicking myself for not picking him up Sunday. Got stuck with an O performance from Albert O.
Good luck my friend!
Gosh dang you espn
Penny got dropped. How much FAAB? I’m hurting with sexy Rexy as rb2
Lost out on GWilson who went for 51, had my bid at 69 but chickened out down to a despicable 47. Jimmy G fetched 80 from the team probably feeling awful about Russ (superflex).
Goff and Lawrence should have been rostered already IMO. Curious to see how much Jimmy G goes for across these leagues
Makes sense. 2 bench spots is crazy!
Only got mason crosby and Jimmy g
Dropped Hunter Henry for Tyler Higbee. Love the volume that Higbee has been getting so far
