Post your queries and advice below. J. Howard, Shepard, or M. Bryant in a ppr at flex? May you and all of your players score today!

Probably Dak but the issue is that if Zeke runs wild, Dallas may not have to air it out very much. Seahawks run d last week was atrocious but their pass D is usually solid even with their injuries.

Carolina may destroy TB today.

Howdard's out with an injury.

Choosing between Bryant and Shepard is tough. Bryant has a much easier matchup and will see his snap count up with AB out... but Shepard's definitely the better WR of the two. Roll with Bryant if you want a guaranteed floor of 8'ish points, or Shepard if you want upside.

I just won my championship last week. Thankfully we started the playoffs early to avoid the benching weeks. Good luck!

I'm in the championship game in one of my leagues and I lost out on a waiver claim this week to a guy who's playing for seventh place in a 10-team league (needless to say, there's no cash prize for 7th).

Turns out Olsen didn't do anything and it probably didn't cost me, but never mind that...

Am I right to be annoyed?



December 24th, 2017 at 7:23 PM ^

No...everyone should play til the end.

I'm in the championship this week. I've lost Rodgers and Wentz, both of whom I drafted, and my QB was Keenum coming into this week. the guy I am playing outbid me for Bortles and Foles because he had more FAAB left. then proceeded to drop Bortles as soon as he knew I couldn't pick him up due to waivers.

It is just good strategy.


December 24th, 2017 at 9:54 PM ^

I'm good with that as long as everyone's on the same page. And I'd never have even questioned it in your situation, where it's your finals opponent who outbid you. When I saw my claim didn't go through I assumed that's what had happened, was surprised when I realized it was somebody else.

One year in NBA (rotisserie style) a guy set his alarm for 3am on the next-to-last day of the season and spent the next few hours, while the rest of us slept, adding and dropping everyone in the free agent pool to get them all into waivers so nobody would be able to make any moves.

He was on top and it was a good plan. It was also the last time we ran a league without any add/drop limits.


December 24th, 2017 at 4:42 PM ^

I'm up 70 and the guy I'm playing has Fitz, WItten and his kicker left. I still have Jake Elliot left.

Todd Gurley came up huge for me today. I thought I was in trouble after losing Antonio Brown, but Diggs did well in his place.



December 24th, 2017 at 6:23 PM ^

I have shady, hunt, Ingram, kamara, Howard, dion Lewis, defonta freeman at RB, aj green and Julio jones at wr, kelce at te and Brees at qb and went 7-6 and lost in the first round of the playoffs. I had the most points scored in the league.


December 24th, 2017 at 7:40 PM ^

Thanks to Antonio brown getting hurt and Elliott being suspended the first week (of 2 week final). Had Rodgers. Had to go with Stafford who sucks ass and had to play josh Gordon because of brown injury. Lost by 4 points. With my 1 rb putting up 82 points over 2 weeks. Outscored the league by 250 points during regular season even with Elliott being suspended.


December 24th, 2017 at 9:00 PM ^

I am in the championship of my league... finished today with 139.2 and my opponent is on 65.02 with Le'Veon Bell, DeAndre Hopkins, and the Eagles defense remaining....

Hoping that Bell and Hopkins have average days tomorrow. I am cautiously optimistic about this one.


December 25th, 2017 at 12:12 AM ^

but all I have left is Crabtree and my opponent has Foles, Jeffrey and Boswell.

Yahoo's computer thinks I still have a 12% chance but I think I'm hosed.
