traded for mixon before the game and get got his 1st td, hopefully as the season goes on the rush yards get ironed out
He doesn't look like the Mixon from last year. He's not breaking tackles, slow, and cutting to the right holes. I would like to see him in the pass game
Hopefully a longer week will get his ankle good as well as run blocking. I got JRob and Javonte, so it’s not a big issue I just am not liking the Denver offense right now
i had the exact set of rbs, held mixon and jrob and traded javonte for pittman. couldnt take anymore of that denver and it backfield.
Crazy that he needed a TD to save his fantasy night with 28 touches.
I’m having a hard time deciding which 3 WRs to pick this week:
* D. Smith
That's a good problem to have. I'd probably sit Smith in this group as painful as it was to have him on your bench last week.
Lol that’s exactly why I’m considering him. 🤣
Can't play him over the other guys on the list based on what happened one week against the Commanders. Wait and see what happens this week with him. If he somehow outscores AJB again than he'll be a lock every week but I don't think it happens.
Thank you for the input. I might be able to trade him for Fournette 1-1. Think I should pull the trigger? Saquon is my RB1. Have depth of Jamaal Williams, Zeke, Jacobs, and Etienne Jr at RB2.
Probably a good idea to get Fournette for when Swift comes back. Bucs offense wont stay stagnant for much longer.
Burrow looking like his old self the past 2 games :)
The Dolphins should have the book thrown at them. I have no horse in that race fantasy-wise, but Tua should not have been out there.
I might have a trade in the works.
I trade: Herbert and Cook
I receive: Josh Allen and Swift
Thoughts? Herbert might be banged up for a while, I lose swift for a couple of weeks.
RBs are Chubb Cook Sanders Montgomery Mattison currently.
Both Allen and Swift are an upgrade in my opinion. If you can get by without Swift for a couple weeks than this is an obvious one to take for me.
I’d say take it. Especially since you have Mattison. You could really benefit from this if Cook gets hurt more than he is.
Bench who: Curtis Samuel, Diontae Johnson, James Robinson, Jamaal Williams. Samuel and Johnson compete for WR2, and the remaining player competes with the other two for flex
Question is between Samuel or Robinson in the flex. Can't really go wrong here (both likely to get 15-20), I'd bench Robinson.
So you would also bench Jamaal Williams? I ask because both Samuel and Robinson have bad matchups this week while Williams has a decent one, and he really hasn’t been playing much worse than then on average. So I feel like all 3 are competitive for Flex
Hell no, I have Williams as a top 8 RB this week. I was saying you must start Williams in one of your RB spots and Johnson in one of your WR slots. Who you choose to bench out of Robinson or Samuel for the flex decision is your call.
Ah I see. To put Williams as RB I’d have to sit Austin Ekeler or Najee Harris or move them to flex so that’s why I was asking in the context of flexes. Should I just play all three of Williams, Ekeler, and Harris, and keep Diontae Johnson in WR? My other WR is Pittman and I’m not planning on benching him.
Yes play Ekeler, Harris, Pittman, Johnson, and Williams. That's potentially three top 10 RBs this week on the same roster lol.
Okay, I thought so, just wanted to make sure those other names I mentioned didn’t seem better than any of those to you. Thanks for the advice, I don’t know football that well so I appreciate it.
Just woke up in the UK to notice that my Waddle + Tua combo has left me utterly fucked for the week.
0-4 here I come.
That being said, what the Dolphins did to Tua is downright criminal and I seriously hope he will be ok in the long term.
I just changed my team name to Owen Four
Who wins this trade
A: jamarr chase jk dobbins dameon pierce
B: Mike Williams Antonio gibson diontae johnson
Dobbins or dameon pierce ROS
Pierce. Dobbins could be great, but he'll always be RB2 in that offense. TDs will be hard to come by.
Volume is king and Pierce is the bellcow.
That’s what I’m thinking it’s just I’m a biased Ohio state fan so i know how insane dobbins could be but pierce is the safe pick cuz of volume
Agreed. Dobbins is a free elf with exciting upside, Pierce is a safe floor type of fella.
But we need to see something from Dobbins as he's recovered from a nasty injury. Let's see how explosive he is.
Dobbins is the RB1? I know they gave him a lighter workload since it was his first week back
Jackson is the RB1 in that offense. And the goal line back.
Any upside from Lamar's feast floats down to the other Backs like marine snow. The crumbs from the kings table.
I think he means Lamar being lamar he gonna take Carries from dobbins. Out of the actual rbs dobbins is clear cut number 1
I got deandre swift for Dj moore and zeke. Worth?
Should I drop rashaad penny or chase edmonds for Mattison? Or just hold?
I would drop Chase Edmonds.
He's not getting touches in that offense. TD dependent as he does get a decent amount of RZ targets.
Mattison is a league winner when Cook goes down.
Bench one of: Ekeler, Jones, J-Rob, Jamaal Williams
McLaurin, Cooks, or Olave one has to be benched. What ya think?
You sure you can't bench two?
I technically could put Robinson or Bateman in over them lol
I would go Robinson and Olave here, not kidding.
I’m tempted.. cooks gets a lot of targets but…
Cooks until he shows signs of life. Targets are king except when you're not catching any of them.
I'd bench mclaurin. His offense is awful, Carson rarely gets any offense going in the first half, Terry made up his points in garbage time last two. Curtis Samuel averaging 10 targets
What do you think of my trade-
I give Curtis Samuel, WAS, Jeff Wilson Jr, SF.
I get Tyreek Hill, MIA
If he has a brain he doesn't take this. Curtis Samuel + an RB1 maybe but Samuel and Wilson is nowhere near enough to replace Tyreek imo
He accepted it but has 3 vetoes already... :/
Damn! Congrats if it goes through
That’s god awful for the other guy
Tried getting Waddle for Etienne, JWJ, and Eli Mitchell before tonight 😅
Terrible trade for the Waddle owner even after tonight imo
Today I got offered Jefferson and Chase for JT and Amari Cooper. I took it.
Please say worth.
Edit- I have RB- Barkley CEH j Williams and penny. WR- Ceedee lamb Curtis Samuel DJ Moore and A Robinson
Yes that's worth it. Now you have to look to come up with a package between Penny, Moore, and A Rob for a RB2 for when Swift comes back and you should be golden.
I would have made that trade as well. I don't have any faith in JT this season. Offense is scary. He's in the same boat as Ekeler for me. Maybe flip Curtis Samuel and CEH /Williams for a better RB now!
What do you think of my trade-
I give Curtis Samuel, WAS, Jeff Wilson Jr, SF.
I get Tyreek Hill, MIA
that Tyreek deal or anything similar would be a mad steal
I would accept it even without tua if I needed a solid wr. Some say you play to win, not to not lose and that stuck with me as far as trading goes. Im 3-0 so far in my league 🤞🏽
If you have JT, Deebo, Mahomes, miles sanders or DK on your team this week you are super fucked. I got too happy with my 2-0 start and the fantasy gods have turned their wrath upon my team, just know when they underperform it is directly tied to me.
Higgins shit on me but Sanders got me a solid 9 (should’ve been 13)
Have a good night fellas
Who is sanders
Jason sanders. Kicker for the dolphins is who I assume he is talking about.
I’ve got jamaal Williams, Antonio Gibson, Jeff Wilson jr & ceedee lamb - who am I benching?
Also got Josh Allen, diggs & Amon St. Ra
No definitely bench Gibson. Wilson is getting good opportunities on a half decent SF offense. Gibson isn't going to give you 10 points this week. Jeff Wilson will
What do you think of my trade-
I give Curtis Samuel, WAS, Jeff Wilson Jr, SF.
I get Tyreek Hill, MIA
Bench Jeff Wilson or Gibson. Prob Wilson
Wtf... you know either him or chase are gonna pop off (i started both and Burrow lmao).
Got offered jk dobbins for my wr zay jones? Should I take it?
if you’re in that 6 WR and bad RB situation then yes do it. otherwise it’s about equal each side
Hmm that’s tempting. Probably. In .5ppr for sure, in ppr prob still yeah unless you need wr/flex
Not me starting the dolphins defense thinking they’d sack burrow 22 times 🤡 1 point to gryffindor!
They got to him QUICK all night. He just miraculously dodged the sack every time. It was impressive, honestly.
They must have covered him in Crisco before kickoff.
Are you me
Flex spot Curtis Samuel or James Connor
Samuel has been money however this is his worst matchup so far. it’ll show if he’s matchup proof. Still performed on a mediocre matchup last week.
I think Samuel may be match up proof. His usage is a dream for fantasy. They manufacture him touches, use him in the running game, and pepper him with targets.
Connor scares me but have both probably going connor
Kupp, kirk, M. Brown and Cooper. Who you benching?
Kirk assuming Slay plays. If not then Brown.
Chubb or pierce this week? Chubb faces a defense that allows the 7th least amount of fantasy points for RBs whereas pierce faces an exploitable chargers defense
Atlanta has given up more rushing yards than the Chargers this year. Browns have a better chance of a positive game script. Chubb is the better RB. Browns have the better O-line. Every reputable RB ranking has Chubb 10+ spots higher than Pierce this week. At no point this week should you talk yourself into Pierce being even close to the same play Chubb is...
They've allowed the 7th least because we're only three games in and they haven't faced Nick Chubb yet.
Wtf to with your stud not the match up
You can't Pierce your opponent if you're not full Chubb.
Don't get cute; go Chubb.
I think you start Chubb. You know browns are going to pound it with him
Tee Higgins my boy. I always grab him in fantasy 3 years in a row always shows up for me when I need him. Him and Keenan Allen or my two favourite fantasy wrs
Trade Javonte and G. Wilson for Amon-Ra, Lazard, T. Lawrence?
I have CMC, Hall, Pierce, Pittman, Lockett, Dotson
Honestly thought Mixon had a pretty solid game. The 2 missed TDs were 100% the o line's fault. There was no hole-making and they kept missing blocks. Miami has a pretty solid run defense as well.
The volume is clearly there, and last week really appears to have just been poorly timed injury management. I think the Bengals o-line gets marginally better and he has a great season when they start playing poor run defenses. I think everyone panicking should relax and be happy they drafted him (hopefully after 1.07) instead of all the other RBs that have been sucking. I much prefer Mixson with his o line concerns on a great team over Najee, Cook, Henry, Ekeler, etc. who have injury, production, and even bigger o-line concerns.
Bengals o line looked like moderate shit compared to last couple week's complete and utter dog shit. They're improving over time which is promising. I've invested too much into the Bengals with chase, Higgins, and Burrow.
I wish we had stats on how many open routes Mixon had. There were literally 0 open routes on any of the redzone plays and most of his points came from routes where he broke tackles and ran through defenders. It's improving a ton though. Last week was a wash but there will be weeks where everything is in his favor and he gets those 2-3TD games.
Also gotta keep in mind the game circumstances on those red zone 3 and FG. Tua is out for the game so Bengals entire focus is limit mistakes and don't walk away without points on the board. Miami knows this and just stacks the box
Went against chase and waddle with Higgins tonight. I was real nervous about tonight but feeling pretty good now
Good time to buy low on Chase?? Rough game but he didn’t look horrible, just curious if the lack of looks will hold up
I have Chase, Diontae Johnson, Samuel, Olave and Doubs. I’d sell chase for a RB1 and WR2
People ain’t gonna give up on chase especially now that their offense is improving every game
Chase owner here. Not happening lol
Davante Adams or CeeDee?
you REALLY should be starting both make it happen
I don’t have them both man, just curious what the consensus is
Wait what? You don't have them both and you're asking which to start???
"Should I start Plaxico Burress or LeSean Mccoy?"
Just the player in general bud, never asked about start/sit.
Oh got ya. In that case, davante seems like a nice guy and lamb does too but maybe not as much. Lambs name sounds much tastier than Adam's so if they both had a bbq joint i would eat at lambs.
This shouldn’t be a question at all. Davante is too talented.
Start Brady or Lawrence this week?
I have those exact QBs. I'm riding Lawrence. TB just looks out of it this year. Philly is hot right now, but I still think Lawrence gets something done whereas I have no hope for TB.
start this dick
Your mom already did
Playing against Higgins in one league and Hurst in another. Not a great start to the week.
I was low on Hill before the season but not that low😂
Should I trade Etienne and James Robinson for Mixon? The Mixon owner is fed up
(10 team PPR)
lol yes lmfao
What is he fed up with?
Probably his 3 YPC and an awful oline
Not meeting their expectations I suppose
Bridgewater would rather throw out of bounds to hill than a 50/50 to waddle.
Waddle stocks are definitely low after this game. Teddy ain’t the guy to support two WR1s but hey he’s never had 2 WR1s so who knows!
Can't be worse than cooking with russ
A bit early to say that yet. We saw half a game from Teddy with Waddle battling a groin injury on a short week.
Is McDaniel a serious person? His press conference sounds like a teenager being grilled by their parents after they were caught ripping a blunt in the backyard
This comment is too good
Oddly specific and hilarious
That was......not super convincing. Lol. No, we do not think his \[back\] injury last week made him fall in a way that injured him today.
That's.....not what was being asked.
10 man PPR
Javonte Williams for Michael Pittman. Who wins the trade?
I’d take Javonte.
His pass catching role in the offense plus his upside at a position that has much more scarcity this season.
That being said, feels pretty fair either way. Need an RB, I favor Javonte. Need help at WR, feels like a pretty decent exchange.
Pittman is a mid-ish wr1 and i consider javonte a high end rb2 / low end rb1. Pretty close but pittman. If it fills ur positional needs then do it
Would y’all trade diontae for Bateman?
I would not
Look at their targets and weighted opportunity. Even though Bateman is in a better offense he's not seeing near the production of Diontae, he's just had a couple big plays to save his stat lines. https://www.ftnfantasy.com/air-yards
Bateman has way more boom potential.. but I’m afraid Diontoe might be truly elite with Pickett in there later on.
As someone who drafted Williams and Chase I’m fucked for the season tbh
Higgins, chase, Burrow combo here. Doing ok slightly above middle of the road 2-1.
Bengals o line is still a mess but improving week after week which is what I'm looking for.
How the fuck did you have all those players to begin with?
6 team league.
Yeah how do you get Henry and Najee same team.. trade maybe?
Such a sick year for me to draft the Chase/Burrow stack. I am so good at fantasy football. Fuckin idiot.
Lol what a dumbass. You should've also drafted Higgins like me
I have Chase/Burrow stack as well and was 3-0 before this week
Full PPR? I'm 1-2 going into this week. Chase was great week 1. Burrow was great last week.
0.5 PPR. Got saved by Chubb in W2
12 points for a first round pick is not a great night, you dolt.
We concerned about chase at all? Lowest target share he’s had all season but there were two throws that could’ve been touchdowns
I’m more concerned about mixon jesus christ
Not going to blame Mixon, he just had no help from OL at all
Nah his vision and speed aren’t there this year. Idk what’s wrong with him. Hesitates too much
Run blocking was terrible
He doesn’t hit the hole hard enough and refuses to fall forward. Perine last week looked so much better. I love Mixon as a bengals fan but he’s off rn
On this goal line carries that resulted in FGs, the first 3 carries he hit the hole hard, but line had no push. Secund series, def was closing three line up bad
Their pass blocking was good but run blocking was horrible. Mixon was getting tangled at the line of scrimmage every time
Burrow needs to stop under throwing him. Two easy TDs if he’s led and doesn’t have to come back/slow down. Frustrating but I think he’ll be fine
Burrow got sacked more than any qb last season and was on his way to that his season until this week. Still got hurried and knocked down a lot but the o line looks like it's starting to mesh. Burrow out produced his stat line and chase avg 20 yards a catch on 4 catches with some end zone catches in sight and Higgins with a great game. Bengals have a high floor and a ceiling to explode through each game. But it's a matter of guessing who will show up.
Also Tua going down made this a game management situation of safe plays in the red zone to get points instead of a chuck fest to catchup.
Yeah I agree. Still looks really good just some suspect throws. If either one of those throws go right he got over 20 on the week. and Higgins was open all game
He wasn’t doing well this time last year. It should be fine but I never thought he would be some target hog.
This time last year…
21 / 13 / 22 / 13
29 / 10 / 12 / 12
He didn’t have a game under 13pts until week 9 last year… he just had 3 in a row (PPR)
youre seriously cherrypicking the discrepency between 12 and 13
No just saying he was following every lower performance with 20+ and averaging more points last year so not sure why we’re saying he was doing bad last year too?
Averaged more points and was more consistent (not bouyed from a single week like this year). And target share looked rough tonight
This year isn’t the same as last year as was stated. Just saying 🤷♀️
yes 2022 is not the same year as 2021 🤷♀️🤷♀️🤷♀️🤷♀️🤷♀️🤷♀️🤷♀️🤷♀️🤷♀️🤷♀️🤷♀️🤷♀️
Exactly. This was in response saying he’s having the same start at 2021. We’re on the same page.
yup, 1 second ago was not the same time as 2 minutes ago. and water is not the same thing as not water.
Or alternatively… Jamar Chase is still Jamar Chase so we will just say he’s producing the same as last year even if he actually isn’t so far and is tracking worse. At least we’ll feel better. LA LA LA I CANT HEAR YOU REALITY… something something dumb about water.
nice solve, jamar chase is in fact still jamar chase.
Lmao ok bc there’s a substantive difference between 12 and 13
I mean he was following up every 13 with 20+ it continued on week 5…. This year he just had 3 straight weeks of 12 or less and the target share looked rough tonight.
We can pretend like this is the same as last year though if you want. 🤷♀️
Seems really unlikely he finishes as a top 8 receiver with how defenses are doubling him
I feel like Higgins is just feasting when he’s doubled. Optimistic Higgins will get some more attention
The bengals offense has been kept in relative check for most of the season so far so I don’t think most defenses will switch from that scheme but maybe
You right. Maybe more of a long term hope. If chase blows up like last year in the playoffs though you just gotta get him there
I've accepted that he's not going to return his ADP this year. From a fantasy perspective, he's basically a worse version of 2018-2021 Tyreek Hill.
Odds of me losing went up 20% this week. Cool fucking game
Someone offered me Justin Jefferson and Brandin Cooks for my Aaron Jones and Waddle in 0.5 PPR. Do I accept after what happened this game?
RBs: CMC, Penny, Edmonds, Henderson, Walker III, Foreman, Gus Edwards
WR: McLaurin, Samuel, Olave, ARob, Jameson
Absolutely do it!
I was surprised to see the Bengals favored by 4 in this game after how Miami beat Buffalo but then I remembered Vegas knows more than I ever will
They foresaw the second tus concussion
Chase worth more
They're both depressed assets that are probably worth around the same. Depending on what your team is, I can see either side saying yes or no.
As a chase owner with olave, Johnson, Samuel and Doubs. I would seriously deal him for that.
As an Ekeler owner, I'm not taking Chase for him.
I'm already great at WR.
