I’ll tell you what the shade was REALLL. Go give this video a thumbs up if you missed my weekly video so I know I should keep them coming. People getting PISSED but we byke don’t you worry your pretty little selves about this.
Devonta Freeman (Concussion)
Rob Kelley (High ankle sprain, Sprained MCL)
Ty Softgomery/Aaron Jones (Ribs/MCL)
C.J. Prosise/Eddie Lacy (Ankle/Groin)
As you should know by now, the notable WR/CB matchup sheet comes out tomorrow around noonish - if you haven't yet signed up for my blah blah
Alex Smith (@NYG) - 48% started
Matt Ryan (@SEA) - 70% Started
I already talked about J.D. McKissic, he's my guy this week, if I played DFS I would definitely get him in there. (started in 1% of leagues).
Tevin Coleman is also another must start, only started in 59% of leagues.
WRs I'll talk about in my WR/CB matchup column dropping later today.
Jason Witten (PHI)
Jared Cook (OAK)
Jared Goff (@MIN) - 60% Started
Leonard Fournette (@CLV) - 95% Started
Adrian Peterson (@HOU) - 60% Started
- most of your trade deadlines are probably passed but here are a few guys I would buy low on.
1. Corey Davis - coming off a 10-target game, Davis is quickly becoming the WR1 here, he played as many snaps as Rishard Matthews and was about an inch away from really putting himself on the map. Lucky for you, if you're looking to buy low, he didn't. He now gets a really tough PIT pass d allowing the 3rd fewest FP to WRs, so I'd expect another mediocre game for the #5 overall pick. But right after Pit he gets a gorgeous schedule of IND, HOU, ARZ, and SF - think he has at least 2 really really good games, maybe 3 in that 4 game stretch.
2. Josh Doctson - a little less hyped on Doctson compared to Davis, but I still like what I'm seeing. Doctson's had some tough matchups, but Terrelle Pryor is basically completely out of the picture. Last week, Xavier Rhodes shadowed Doctson, which clearly tells you what the opponents think about Doctson. He had a season-high 7 targets and should've had another TD. It seems that Doctson has basically scored, or "Should have' scored in almost every game this year. The next 6 weeks are filled with either really bad or good matchups - @NO (Lattimore), @LAC (Hayward) and DEN (Talib), but he also gets NYG, DAL and ARZ. You'll know when you can play him at least.
I think with the news of Tyrod getting benched, people might be looking to move Shady and I've been getting a ton of trade ??'s surrounding him. He's had some bad games this year that make you question him, but his ROS schedule is incredible as a fantasy RB.
Ok, so we're getting down to the wire
I'll get right to the ETGD - I'm 4-6 sitting in 8th, I threw up a 170 spot two weeks ago, and 135 last week but happened to go against someone who went off, I basically would've beat any other team in the league really woulda had some nice mojo, but I'm hurting man - so far on the year - i've lost deshaun watson, odell beckham, allen robinson, danny woodhead, chris carson, julio has obviously underperformed so i mean, a lot of it is luck not much I could've done but..
Im my college friends league ... i have the most points scored in the league but i'm sitting at 5-5 in 6th place... just bad luck again nothing you can do.. I'm not worried though, look at my team it's stacked, long as I keep winning I'll get into the playoffs.
Sub league - im getting washed tbh, i'm 4-6 should be 5-5 played OBJ the first week by accident, I can still go on a run, i'm 2 games out of 6th place and it's a 14-team league so if i go on a run i can get in for sure. OBJ was my first rounder, and in a 14-team league when you lose guys like that it really hurts because you only get one or two haymaker players liek that. But you know it is what is it, props to eveyrone raking in that league.
Last league is the FJ office league. Sitting in 6th place also 14 teams so I'm in the thick of the playoffs, just made two huge moves on the waiver, been saving my FAAB budget and I was able to grab Alex Smith and Samaje Perine off the waivers - might not sound too exciting but RBs are fucking scarce in this league man so that was huge for me. The next best option on the WW was like Corey Clement so that was huge, someone also just dropped McKissic like two days ago so I need to try and get him when the next WW processes which I think is in two days.
Again we're coming down the final stretch, so you can still run off 3-4 wins in a row and squeak into the playoffs, all you need is a ticket to the big dance and anything can happen baby.
ANNNND we're bringing it way byke from the dead, my LoTCs for y'all gambling folks. Last time I did this was back in Week 8.
As far as I'm concerned, any win percentage over 51% is a DUB.
Record on the Season (11-12)
Week 4 (Collab w/ Adam Pfeifer no picks)
