    I was fortunate enough to acquire Chubb before the Hyde trade, and now I have an abundance of RB's: Gurley, McCaffrey, Mixon and Chubb. Where I'm hurting is QB. It's a super flex league and my only two QB's are Trubisky and Manning (I traded Mariota away a couple weeks ago). Would you stick with this roster or try to dump one my extra RB's for an upgrade over Manning?

    Manning has been horrible. Can you get Fitzpatrick off waivers? Can never have too many RBs.

    Funny you mention that, as i put a bid in for him while watching that game. I don't have much FAAB left, but maybe nobody else will try for him.

    Not in a super flex league. Best QB on the wire is literally Derek Anderson lol.

    What's the better add right now. Larry Fitzgerald with new OC or Courtland Sutton after Thomas is traded away?

    I just traded Kyle Rudolph and Conner for Kelce, Crowell, and Thompson (AP backup in WAS). Maybe not the best trade giving up Conner but I am so loaded at RB in that league. I have AP, Barkley, and Howard. I could use another receiver in that league, I have Evans, J. Gordon, M. Sanu, K. Benjamin, and Crabtree. May try and trade Crowell for a decent 2 receiver.

    Sutton is high end WR3 with huge upside, Fitz is a lower end WR2 with limited upside. If you can afford to Stash Sutton take him.

    I got outbid for Fitzpatrick (someone spent $88 out the $100 we started the season with), but someone else dropped Darnold and I don't think anyone noticed because I was able to get him in the 2nd round of waivers for my remaining $10.



    I don't love him but I think he's an upgrade over that **** Eli.

    James Conner owners (myself) rejoice. Looking a lot more like Bell is going to sit the rest of the year.

    I traded him for Kelce and Crowell which isnt the worst trade considering what I have at RB still but I am kind of missing him. It was nice to pick up Dez off the waiver wire, hopefully my Saints can use him right and he will become a good wr option for me with Evans and Gordon

    Yeah you guys got an elite RB1 off waivers. So assuming you drafted decent in the first few rounds you should be one of the favorites to win your league.

    I would not count on much from Dez... I think you are looking at WR3 at best.

    If Bell stays out, I likely win the league having grabbed Conner.... Although I'm still bitter that I dropped James White instead of Jordan Howard to do so, but it was preseason. If I did that I'd have the best RB combo in fantasy with Kamara, Conner and White playing each week. Oh well, still in first place so far.



    I did grab Dez although I might've paid too high a price. I dropped Tate, but even though he hasn't played yet for the Eagles I just don't see big things coming from him in that offense. I do have a feeling that playing in the same division in that high powered offense will give Dez an edge, especially with Brees throwing the ball.

    I would take Tate over Dez. But nobody really knows...

    Yeah, I'm pretty stacked at receiver with Julio, Diggs, Edelman, and Landry so I am taking a flyer on Dez. I'm thinking a bit that I should've dropped Landry instead of Tate there but I'm hoping the new staff in Cleveland finds a way to stretch the field a bit with him.

    Is it PPR or standard?

    This team is in 9th in a 12 team league. I was killed by injuries for the first part of the season. Only one game out of playoffs. I feel I have a legit shot at the championship. It all rides on Fournette and Cook.



    Fitzpatrick

    Julio

    Edelman

    C. Sutton

    Amari Cooper

    Mixon

    Fournette

    Dalvin Cook

    Marlon Mack

    Adam Jones

    Kerryon Johnson

    Peyton Barber

    George Kittle

    You would think, but I can't play fantasy defense so I keep getting beat by the highest scorers of the week despite putting up overall good numbers. Conner was a nice grab because I actually drafted McKinnon as my RB2 and obviously lost him before the season even started.



    Currently trotting out Zeke, Conner, D. Adams, B. Cooks, & C. Ridley as my core.

    Who did you get in return? He should almost be untouchable in PPR the way he is used.

    Yeah, there's a guy in my league that has that combo. Thankful I'm not playing him.



    I was excited as I had Cam and Conner going tonight and they started out fantastic..... And then ended up with not even 30 points between them. Luckily my opponent had Funchess for a nice low number on a WR, but I'll need guys to perform to pull out the win.
  • blairdblaird Members Posts: 2,151 ✭✭
    Im playing McCaffrey so gonna need big games from my guys this weekend. And Im reading reports that Bell will be back by Thursday, if not hes done for the season. Could take a week or two to get back in shape though.
  • jerebear21jerebear21 Don't Go Left ClubWRX Posts: 3,250 ClubWRX
    how do they split the carries going forward. Conners playing at an ALL PRO level right now and the team obviously have good chemistry. 177 points the last 5 games, most in the history of NFL of any 5 games.



    steelers o-coordinator got a pretty good crappy situation at hand; bell might not be ready till week 12-13 so how much of help will he be to your teams.

    Can they rescind the offer since he never signed? I would if I was them. They are steamrolling right now and its hard to get better numbers than what Conners is putting up. Id save myself the money and tell Bell just enjoy the rest of the year bc we dont need you and good luck going forward. I wouldnt waste the money on someone who is not going to bring a whole bunch more than what Conner is doing.
  • jerebear21jerebear21 Don't Go Left ClubWRX Posts: 3,250 ClubWRX
    he's going to sign this weekend.



    it's prorated this year and a healthy fresh bell in the playoffs is better than no bell. he is a much better route runner than juju and conners combined.

    I don't think he's going to show up at all. He would have signed if he reverted back to a 2nd yr tag otherwise but with recent reports that that's not the case and goes to QB kind of numbers I think he sits out. PIT then let's him walk in the off-season and he signs elsewhere as a FA.
