Everyday is a banger when you own CMC


Badgeringlion

When you gamble on your gambles.


HOTsauceTM

My RB 2 is Kamara lol. I went from happy to sad so quick based on this ams news. I have no more pick ups for the week also if he's out. Our league allows 3 and I grabbed my streaming d, a kicker because Butker is out, and Mostert who already played because Edmonds has been lack luster. If he's out I'm going without a RB .


Past-Coat1438

Your league caps pickups per week? Never heard of this. Do you like it?


HOTsauceTM

Never really thought about it until now but FUCK that rule lol. Before I didn't know why they did it but I guess it was to fuck me 3 years later.


adamup27

In fantasy hockey, we have a limit of five pickups but that’s because matches are one week long. Picking up a ton of people and cycling through games can create an unfair advantage (more players with 4 games vs 3 or 2 per week). Three pickups in fantasy football is brutal. You should ask your commissioner to remove that rule for next year.


Past-Coat1438

Ya that’s wild I’d hate that rule. Sometimes shitty luck happens and you HAVE to pick people up. This just fucks people over for no good reason lol


MayiHav10kMarblesPlz

My league does 5. It's a dated rule from 9 years ago when we first started our league and nobody really knew what they were doing. We had guys doing 7 or 8 add drops a week. Drop and pick up the same player multiple times. Shit like that. So we instituted a 5 move limit. We don't need it anymore but nobody really complains because honestly nobody in our league ever makes that many weekly moves these days.


GymkataMofos

What an absolutely stupid rule. What is even the reasoning for it?


Yas2184

I think it would be so you couldn't pick up and drop players during the week and make them go through the ww process. That would potentially block other teams from either getting them, or putting in a claim to force teams down the waiver priority list. Maybe not the case, but that's always how I looked at those types of limits.


ryan71914

That's a terrible limit, Yahoo default is 8 and we've never had a problem with it.


Uri266

My league does the same. Rule was implemented years ago because a few owners would add/drop several players to severely limit who could be picked up by other owners in case of a last minute scratch. For example, take Kamara and potentially CMC today. An owner playing against a team that has either player could repeatedly add/drop any potential replacement to leave the WW empty of serviceable backs. Personally I hate this rule, but a few owners, 1 in particular, abused this every single week. Could not reliably stream defenses, kickers, or even QBs. I only add 1 or 2 players during the week and hold my last pickup for Sunday in case of a last minute scratch.


ThisGuyFawkes420

It's like pissing in the wind. Kinda feels good for a bit, but all things considered it was a bad idea.


crewserbattle

I've got Herbert, Etienne, zeke and a ton of WR depth. I'm super tempted to just bench CMC either way and fill out my roster with Bateman/Dortch/Dotson


0percentdnf

Hey Christian, why don't you just test this now at your house and let everyone know? Thanks.


steak__burrito

Anyone on this sub have a quad they can try throwing outside?


MoonUnitMotion

I got you, fam. Edit- I threw out my quad


MrOakMan

This Carolina 4pm start is such bullshit


Jaded_Prompt_15

Yeah, had to move CMC to my flex... All my other RBs start at 1 At least this way I can flex a WR if he's out at 4 Edit: If you don't have anyone, Lavishka is probably still available in your league. He got traded just before week 1, so he debuted for the Panthers last week in the 4th quarter and immediately got a 67 yard TD. I've picked him up in past seasons, but never got to start him. If CMC can't play, he's going in for me. They'll be playing from behind, so a lot of passes to go around. And I can't see Baker not favoring him after what two targets got last week in just the fourth quarter.


Nickthegreek23

That's what I did this week as well. It's either CMC, Doubs, or Godwin. Lol


Insan3editing

Exactly the same situation for me. I’ll go with Doubs if CMC is out.


Nickthegreek23

Let's go, baby! Fingers crossed it doesn't come to that.


[deleted]

[удалено]


Nickthegreek23

I certainly don't hate that option!


redditbrodieman

Gonna be either CMC or Dortch for me lol


Nickthegreek23

Still trust Dortch with Rondale coming back?


cmonbitcoin

Either M.Carter,Etienne, Doubs or godwin for me… don’t know what to do fml


Nickthegreek23

Do you need ceiling or floor?


cmonbitcoin

Gotta fill CMCs shoes so ceiling it is. Was leaning toward Etienne. Feel like he’s gonna hit paydirt this week.


Nickthegreek23

If looking for ceiling that's what I would do as well.


cmonbitcoin

Yeah I’m just worried about CMC actually playing at 4.. ah the stress of FF!


Nickthegreek23

You and me both brother. I'm gonna be glued to my phone all day lol


BidoofTheGod

Same. Flexing Doubs if he’s out


giveitagoogle

All my WR play @1 :(


Bucfansince87

Same


captainpoppy

I made the mistake of having Mixon in my flex. Didn't double check before the game and now I have less flexibility:( Feels bad man. I even told my league when they were newbies to not play your flex on thurs night. And here I am being dumb


F_cking-LizardKing

Thankfully I’ve got Jeff Wilson queued up for Monday if he’s out


Rock_Samaritan

Random internet stranger here thanking you for the flex reminder!


mr_grission

In my home leagues you consistently see even the smarter players misusing their FLEX, blows my mind. Many of them know to avoid using the FLEX on Thursday but don't think through not blowing them on the 1 PM block when they can avoid it.


NotNickCannon

You’d rather have Laviska than Foreman or Chuba? Do you really think he’s the one who would take over the majority of the touches? Seems wrong to me but I don’t follow the Panthers and I do like Laviskas talent


Jaded_Prompt_15

> You’d rather have Laviska than Foreman or Chuba? Yep. Because it's not both, it's one or the other that I can play, and if they combine for 20 I'd be surprised. And probably guess wrong if I tried to guess which would get more. But the two combined aren't worth a CMC, so Baker is going to be throwing more. And after last week, I can't imagine Baker not hoping Laviskas can bail him out again. Baker wants to look good, and Laviskas is his route to that, not Foreman or Chubba


NotNickCannon

Fair enough. I’ve been imagining that Foreman will get the early and short down work and Chuba would be change of pace/3rd downs. But you’re probably right that neither role is valuable. I’m still holding Foreman with hopes he has a big game if CMC sits so I can use him as trade bait.


itshairball

I did the same as far as CMC in flex spot, I've got DJ Moore to slot into flex if needed (god help me). My only other play would be Juju, but weirdly enough I feel more confident in DJ Moore against Arizona rather then Juju at TB.


mikeywizzles

I have him in a league without a flex so I am starting miles sanders and will plug in James Conner in my other RB slot if CMC doesn’t go. Not ideal cause I wanna start Conner/CMC but can’t risk it


Meatloaf0220

My opponent has Monty (out), Cpatt (game time decision) and CMC (game time decision). I have kamara (out). I love fantasy football 😂


Funkyfreddy

I have CMC, CPatt, Monty, Godwin, and meyers. It’s week 4 and I have two out and three GTD. FF is a fickle bitch


[deleted]

[удалено]


TheGameDoneChanged

I will never understand leagues with those kinds of rules.


Meatloaf0220

I also had Butker and dropped him a few weeks ago. I’m rolling the Dallas kicker Maher this week


Equivalent_Captain27

Lol if you own CMC why would you use all 3?


HOTsauceTM

I gambled on them both not being out. Should have just went no kicker.


Ph3asant

Injuries robbed this dude of a HoF career


Alkash42

In a way, so did Matt Rhule and Panthers FO


parker0215

He's got ~5 years of production left, still time to make a case even with his injuries


DennisFlonasal

saying that about any RB is ballsy lol


gaynewretzky

The average rb career is 2.57 years


DennisFlonasal

I would have said around 3 so fair enough


Credk

He’s got Baker this year so put that down to 4 years at most, maybe more if he’s still somehow there beyond this season


RUALUM15

Rhuled out is back on the menu


Babafesh

I have NO back up plan for if cmc doesn’t play at 4 pm today.


Really831

I have the great Melvin Gordon and RB1 Henderson


A-Aron-Rod-gers

Neither do I. I have Chubb and Williams in the bench and they play at 12 PM


ShrinesOfParalysis

Just start chubb


lmaginaryMenagerie

You don’t have wide receivers playing at 4 that you could put CMC in the Flex and swap him out if needed?


Fgrira-Fpevoare

At least your not gambling alone. 🍺


Losted12

I don’t either…. I’ve got breece hall on my bench, he’ll probably go off and cmc won’t play


RorschachRedd

I got rachaad white lmao


Shizcake

I got CMC on my flex so I can swap in Dortch... also looking at Thomas and Montgomery on my bench rip


PeopleReady

Tuesday for no reason: CMC to IR


Resident_in_Debt

Really gonna make me start Akers?


Rarth-Devan

I've got both Akers and Zeke to consider, fml


Alex8525

Zeke is my RB2.


CanIHaveAppleJuice

I’ve got Rhemondre, who also plays in the 4 pm slot, as a backup plan. I’ll be checking for updates like mad until then.


Distance_by_Time

Same spot for me. It’s either that or just start Breece Hall, who plays at 1. But I think I’m gonna wait


scoopdiddlypoop

Same, but won’t have service later today so have to play guesswork right now :(


SujiToast

Schefter says he’s playing so I’m believing that as it fits my narrative.


greeegoreo

schefter said he’s “likely” to play instead of saying he’s “expected” to play. a very small change in verbiage can mean a lot. thought it was kind of weird when i read the tweet. majority of the time schefter uses “expected” to play.


peachycloth21

I started the year with CMC, Swift, Kamara and thought the league may as well hand me the trophy. Now it’s week 4 and I’m starting Craig Reynolds, Mark Ingram, and possibly Foreman/Hubbard.


[deleted]

[удалено]


SammyBagelJr

Me too😭


Nickthegreek23

QMQ baby


QuesoPantera

I remember this dance from last year


EliManningHOFClub10

Think I’m starting Pierce instead


Reclaim3r

That's my move as well. And then hope they rest CMC.


OldKingClancy20

Took CMC and Kamara with first two picks and instead its Pierce and Jrob. Could be a lot worse but I believe everyone else on my entire roster has already missed one game if not more. Fwiw I'm keeping Cmac in my flex in case he's out I can replace him with another WR.


NarwhalEqualUnicorn

I'm going to keep him in the lineup and if he sits at least I have Doubs to replace him in the flex. Not ideal but not a 0 (hopefully)


sylvian22

Yeah I had wanted to start Doubs in WR but now keeping him on bench in case need to flex him in for CMC


[deleted]

late game too just to twist the knife further


lonewIof

Should I say fuck it and start Khalil at 1pm instead?


D-Gu

i put khalil in CMC's Rb spot, and moved CMC to flex for now....i herbert is an auto-start this week, anyway....


Rarth-Devan

If he's a no go, is it worth to even start Foreman or Hubbard?


Scizzott2hotte

Foreman imo


Something__319

Do I just start K. Hunt or risk it? My entire bench plays at 1pm. Im not exactly feeling confident


runbmb

I’ve decided to bench him this week for Jamaal Williams. So at least one other owner has benched him lol


Something__319

Yeah. I'm thinking the same. My opponents team is beat up as well but also has Kupp and Barkley so I for sure can't afford anyone to put up 0.


runbmb

Yeah, I feel like it could easily be a “plays the first quarter, gets 4 points, then tweaks his injury” type of game. I’m facing the 0-3 team and I’m just hoping for solid production all around.


Something__319

I'm facing the only 3-0 team so I need several players to have good games.


xcbrendan

Debating starting Khalil Herbert instead but unsure


bradmcgi

Do I start pierce over him this week?


Remintz

In the same boat


bradmcgi

So damn happy I went pierce lol


Remintz

I went pierce over cmc lollll.


TrapLord28

Hubbard or Mckinnon if he goes out? I got no options if this guy is out. Nobody I own at 1 is worth starting before knowing if he’s good to go.


StamToast

Only back up I have after 1pm is Henderson RIP


giveitagoogle

It’s CMC or Allen Robinson


notsingsing

Akers for me RIP


itshairball

DJ Moore or Juju for me, could be worse but I promised myself Moore was riding the bench until further notice.


mellow_mort

Hubbard or Foreman the better stash? Depth chart has Chuba as RB2.


Scizzott2hotte

Foreman imo


capnmykonos

Panthers fan here, I think Laviska Shenault Jr. is the guy to own if CMC is out. They schemed him some plays in his first game and he produced. Although I think he is listed as a WR on Yahoo unfortunately


bryan49

He has always been a wide receiver. I highly doubt he takes over as the main running back


capnmykonos

Yeah I understand that, I do think he will be worth owning in the event of an injury to CMC


scotthall83

That great 2017 draft class is breaking down


TechnicolorTypeA

It’s Wedne….shit it’s game day my dudes.


thing85

"While going full speed during pre-game tests, it was determined that Christian McCaffrey does not have legs, and is therefore likely out for this game."


[deleted]

At this point I just wish he sits and heals instead of playing and aggravating the injury.


redditbrodieman

Agree but I need them to announce that before 1:00pm lol


Thedcsport1

Start Olave or wait and if he doesn’t play go with Dillon


SenorGhost21

I was debating on who to flex between Olave and Dillon. Now because of this my only option is to start Olave and have Dillon on the bench for a safety net


bradmcgi

Love olave this week


wallopknot

Just started Olave over Mclaurin. Let’s gooo!


NotHopee

I feel like unless there was a significant change he is playing


holyshxt5

well bois looking like D.harris might have to put my team on his back


No_Intention_8878

So my flex already played (Higgins) and my backup RBs are Herbert (1pm) and Dillon (4:05pm). Should I just start Herbert over CMC or wait until closer to 4?


Remintz

Start Herbert regardless, can switch Dillon if you want


icarus_flies

I want everyone to know i benched cmc just so he could go off for 20 points. You are all welcome in advance.


grandpaJose

Even if he is playing he Will be limited i guess.. i think he is a bench if you have another starting RB on the bench like Jacobs.


EricHawkCans

Haters are so excited at this news


somethingonthewing

Gamble cmc will play or start K Herbert? Edit: Herbert it is. Thank you and good luck all


Mattyicecream

I might start pierce instead, wish cmc had the early slot


somethingonthewing

I have Pierce as an option as well


Cantholditdown

Herbert 100%


HPthrowaway5

Herb


PlantainZealousideal

Crazy as it is to say I’d start Herbert. As a Dalvin Cook owner, my fear of re-injury is sky high and it’d the same if I owned CMC


_Apatosaurus_

Normally I'd say wait on your stud, but these feels exactly like every other time CMC just sat out. I'd go Herbert.


Cantholditdown

Herbert is arguably a stud right niw


_Apatosaurus_

Sure, but he's not as studly as a healthy CMC would be.


Sille143

CMC


[deleted]

[удалено]


gunnutzz467

The full load places him on ir


fantasybaseballshow

Yeah this is what I’m thinking. If he’s this iffy why would I want to start him?


Ttmode

Good thing he’s in the afternoon slot. Would really suck if I actually had an option to replace him Edit: in case anyone wants to help. Options are just sit CMC and replace with Dionte Johnson (I’m RB heavy and have Zeke and Conner in the flex spots with Jrob as RB2) orrrrr wait for more info and probably need to pick up Jerrick McKinnon to play as an RB. All other options are either injured or absolute crapshoots. Those crapshoots include Mack Hollins (would said Craig Reynolds but he’s in the 1pm slot)


Here_comes_the_D

Yikes. If it were me I'd probably wait it out and gamble on Mack of CMC sits.


Ttmode

I also grabbed Dortch off the wire, so it’ll either be him or Mack, either way I absolutely hate it


sharkapotamus

Why wouldn't you move Cmc to one of the flex spots, so you are able to pivot to a later-game WR if he's out? Surely there's a better wr option for flex instead of McKinnon.


Ttmode

That’s what I’m gonna do, best option on waivers was Dortch so I’m leaning him. It’s also a standard league which makes it feel a bit worse but is what it is. CMC would be my 4th starter out for this week so it’s just a whole mess


sharkapotamus

Dortch is also my CMC pivot haha, good luck!


Ttmode

Same to you, seems like we’ll both need it!


Overwaiter69

Even if he plays he’s probably going to start limping and come out


SilkyJohnson72

I'm so relieved to not have to deal with this bullshit this year.


ZaynesWorld

First year owner, already want off this ride, I’m fielding trade offers to see if anything is worthwhile


Here_comes_the_D

Play Jamaal Williams over CMC or risk having to sub in Dillon if CMC doesn't go?


-Fishdaddy-

I'm playing Jamaal and Jrob over CMC. Do it. If you have a better option, roll them out regardless of draft capital.


westernsociety

Lol so he gonna go full speed and pull something


Casual_Robe

So would starting james Robinson for the 1pm game be a better play? Especially since it's expected to rain a lot, might be better for the jaguars RBs


Aztekar

So many people are gonna lose cause they'll sit him. Start your studs people! If he plays, play him


weebs210

The issue is the late start...


OrdinarySignature823

CMC career in shambles


ryanr9119

start pierce over him or wait and start jeff wilson or henderson monday night?


priamos

wait and start jeff, that’s a good sub


wallopknot

I have pierce and Wilson as well. Waiting and using Wilson as my backup plan.


Resident_in_Debt

Just go with Pierce


TXCapita

not at all when Pierce isnt much better than jwj. Rams are a tough D but Texans playing from behind isnt much better. Wait for CMC


priamos

my options are mckenzie/palmer/dotson at 1pm, or rondale/cmc at 4pm


Rudy102600

Glad I have two late game RBs waiting


AceAxos

So since it’s pre game their gonna test it, we’ll know before the slot lock if he’s playing or not? Stevenson is my next man up and the Pats game starts after the Panthers so I just need to know before CMC gets locked in


shastmak4

They announce the inactive players like an hour before the game


AceAxos

Oh perfect then, cheers


[deleted]

This almost forces me to bench CMC and start Tony Pollard in the early game.


ZaynesWorld

I just benched him for Javonte Williams Edit: swapped them back


JMoy41

If he can’t go I have Dillon ready


braedena97

Im tempted to start Drake London, and just leave CMC on the bench this week. Even if he suits up, how long before he has a set back?


redditbrodieman

I'm also thinking about this. Of all the weeks for them to have a 4:00pm game smh


braedena97

My thoughts exactly… Projection-wise, Ive got a decent advantage. Feels wrong benching CMC for London, but I’d rather take the safe points.


quizno1615

I'll be totally fine if Alvin and cmc Both don't play today... totally fine...


HOTsauceTM

Same lol


Ancient_Racoon

Don’t know what to do, feel like benching him b/c even if he plays he probably ain’t gonna do much


poppacarcar

My other rbs start in the earlier games fuuuuuuu


OrangElm

Got Keenan out, Monty out, Edmonds already played. If CMC is out my only option is starting Javonte and Gordon.


MrEric

Just hold him out at this point. Rhule is an idiot


tactical_lampost

Shit, I gotta start akers or ceh if cmc goes down


ars2x

CMC or pierce today?


bigwinniestyle

I have Zeke on my bench but he plays at 11am. Should I start Zeke or gamble that McCaffrey plays?


jeffafaa1237

Man do I start K Herbert over CMC? Have saquan and Jamal Williams as rb2 and flex. I feel like cmc is gonna have a big game sometime but Carolina playing late is giving me pause


jcrankin22

Thankfully someone dropped Foreman literally yesterday so I guess I can roll with that if needed.


AaronDer1357

U/Expensive_Force_7171 does your wife's boyfriend have any updates?


Alhambra_Lion

So the only other late game option I have is Akers. Should I bench CMC for the also sorta kinda injured CPAT?


Separate-Valuable579

Is he playing or nah?


Separate-Valuable579

Start MG3 or ALlen Robinson over CMC?


jsta19

this is my first rodeo as a CMC owner. the ride has been as expected thus far


CrazybyRX

Well I started Kamara this morning, and I'm going against CMC so its only fair for him to sit out for me.


iancameron

Yeah.. rolling Jacobs instead


cloudx16

I have Hubbard and Foreman as my only options. Who is the #2?
