      I’m on the wrong side again…. there is no Bulldawg side now.

      As for my FFL this week? I’m getting crushed by Nitro. I still have a chance though. All my man, Ameer Abdullah (RB), has to do monday night is have a career game! 100+ yards and 3 TD’s… will that get me 32 points – which is what I need. Jeez.

    good lord, player personnel decisions can KILL your success. If I had stuck with the Skins RB and Brady, I would have won this week.

      Sometimes, when thinking of replacing a starter after a bad game, you may just want to step away from the keyboard. I meddled too much with my own roster early last season and almost missed the playoffs.

        I’m learning; I should have just stuck with Brady; and that 3rd WR/RB slot I’ve gone to RB’s; THIS week, my top two RB’s had lousy weeks; the injury ratings I’ve still got to learn what is serious and what is not.

    The defensive grade is impt when deciding if your going to sit one of your studs (one of your first 7 rd. drafted players).
    For ex., ALWAYS play your studs against Taints, Indy and the Jets, always. It’s a gift that always deliver.
    Sometimes I will sit a stud if they are playing IN Seattle, Pitt, Balt and KC.
    But it’s rare, all depends on the match-ups your back ups have.
    Most studs that bomb one week, usually rebound the next week.
    Finally, watch me destroy your team this weekend!!!
    It’s 50% luck regardless.

        OK – thanks. NOW I realize the influnece of highly successful RB’s. Todd Gurley got 100 + yds and 3 TD’s vs lowly 49’ers and I start out 50 points in the hole. I need to send cooper Kupp (WR) to the bench and bring in another RB next week.

          I originally went with 3 WR and 2 RB’s, but the WR are inconsistent – so, I’m at 3 RB’s and just 2 WR’s; we’ll see if that gets my team score into the 140’s; this early in the season and RJR and Texas Monstahs look like the teams to beat

            Chris Thompson and Brady has monster weeks; if both Ajayi and the Ravens RB had decent weeks, we would have had a barn burner !

        2. JJ

          You can also try trading some of those WR’s. Just go to your page and click on Trading Block and see which RB’s are on the block. The worse that can happen is they don’t click accept on the trade. All trades have to be approved by LM (SW or myself). This is to prevent unfair trades and/or collusuion. Most trades are approved.

    what is the record of waiver wire transactions in a single week? I tried 4 this week; 3 went through – somebody else got JJ Nelson; I’m not 11 of 12 for waiver priority. Hopefully, this team will settle down.

    Reply

      Don’t know what the record is but you can put as many claims in as you want. Keep in mind that your draft order will go higher with each claim. So if some one is dropped on a thurs, they become available the following sunday. But after Monday night football, all waiver order goes back to reverse team standings, regardless of how many claims you put in the previous week.

    OWLS may actually win a game!!!!! May need to hit the trading block. I need a running back.. now that sproles is gone for the year, and he was my “flex” guy. Anyone have RB they do not want after waivers is over?

    Reply
  5. JJ

    Congrats LRD! Lots of RB’s out there with potential huge upside. Besides the obvious top 2 that will go first, Gordon’s back up Oliver, could be a RB1 if that knee gets worse. And Lamar Miller is being upstaged by his backup. There’s 2 rookies making some noise on Bal and NYG, though their OL’s suck. Good luck this weekend, Eagles love the taste of owls!!!

    JJ – I tried to pick up some guys on the waiver wire. I got three selections but couldn’t get beyond that. I need six active additions since I moved six Falcons to the bench for the bye week. Selected Manning (QB), Henry (TE) & Funches (WR).. couldn’t go any further?

    Reply
    1. JJ

      Flo – Not sure why you couldn’t pick more. The WW does not go thru until every Thurs am. After that, you can pick any free agent except those that are discarded Thurs am. Have to wait until Fri. or Sunday for those players.
      When you play poker, do you discard face up or face down? Hmmmmmm, just a thought to ponder!

        1. JJ

          For ex., I lost D. Cook last weekend. I could of dropped him anytime before WW, but why? That would remind everyone that I’m looking for a RB and they may put a claim in for a RB ahead of me. I was shocked I got L. Murray this am. It’s rare to pickup a RB1 during the season. Every week, I look at teams ahead of me on the waiver wire to try to guess who they may be targeting. Dumping players before WW is discarding face up!

      Flo – I am off the rest of the week (HOORAYYY -but no workie no money) so I will try to answer as i pull together some idiom exercises.I went thru all the same learning curvel stuff myself last year. For me, playing each week, putting players out there, is more fun than seeing who wins the league at the end of the season. Will be happy to try to help as I can (blind leading the blind time).

      Look at the add players tab, any with a GREEN plus sign can be added immediately as of today. You want em, you got em.
      Yellow tabs require a 48 hour wait to process, and others can put a claim on the same player in that time as well – you just can’t know.

      For example – RB’s??
      Aaron Jones, GB RB is projected to score 17.6 points this week (depends on how Montgomery and Williams heal I suspect)
      D’Onta Foreman, Hou RB projected to score 9.5 points, but a lot of his points may need to come from receiving yards
      Thomas Rawls, Sea RB – Projected to score 8.9 points, may take on a bigger role now that Carson is hurt

      For your def players, and the K, lots of choices –
      DL – Griffen MN, Clowney Houston, Buckner SF are all projected to have 5+ points this weekend and are immediately available.
      LOTS of K’s available immediately that are forecast to get over 7

      Just go for the green + designation, and you will be fine.

      Hope that helps.

          InjuryPackers RBs limited Wednesday
          Ty Montgomery and Jamaal Williams
          By: Mike Krueger | Oct 4 2017, 2:15 pm

          Green Bay Packers
          Ty Montgomery practiced with significant protection around his ribs. Fellow RB Jamaal Williams (knee) also on the field. (ESPN)

          FFToday’s Take: Montgomery is dealing with multiple broken ribs while Williams suffered a sprained knee in Week 4 against the Bears. It’s too early to tell if either back will play Sunday but their limited participation is a good sign. Aaron Jones would see more opportunities if either back is limited or sits.

            Aaron Jones, GB – UPDATE: With Ty Montgomery dealing with multiple broken ribs and doubtful for this week’s matchup with Dallas, it’s likely that Jones will take over as the lead back for the Packers. Jamaal Williams is dealing with a knee injury, and Montgomery said he’ll try to play through the issue but will err on the side of caution with respect to risking serious injury to his vital organs. Jones looked sharp on Thursday night and needs to be added in all formats.

            Both post from FFToday.

        Ajarn – Thanks – I’m pitiful so far. Before I read your comments I already made several changes to this week’s lineup. One change was adding Aaron Jones (RB) – also added Griffin (DL). I also added a few guys off your list – roll of the dice.

        I didn’t know what the green/orange designation meant. You taught me something today – thanks. You are a pretty good teacher –

        * I have to confess that I haven’t spent a great deal of time researching – combination of being busy and procrastinating. Studied a tiny bit more for this roster – 4 games too late I guess.

        I’m not taking all of this too seriously – win/lose – just joined to have fun and JJ needed another fool to beat up on!

        Yep, I reached the point with Dez where perpetual potential never providing production. Went for someone that could provide hopefully real production, turned out to be a great move as I recall, got a rookie that was getting 10+ points every week on returns, earning more time each week. Kareem Hunt, I believe. My best move of the year, but a HUGE risk, Dez could have exploded after I dumped him.

        I am losing patience with another high draft WR pick (for me) this year again that just doesn’t produce. Not JUST injury, but apparent lack of chemistry with his QB (like Dez seemed to have last year to me as a rookie), now exacerbated by his QB going down.

        The big question becomes – how long do you stick with an under-performer?? It still befuddles me.

            I figured Smallwood has done well but he’s the backup RB and the guy ahead of him should be back before Smallwood is healthy. At that point Smallwood will be like Tevin Coleman, get maybe 1/3rd of the touches.

        Dealing with the same thing with Buck Allen…really want to drop him and pull a flyer on that RB behind Miller in houston…but cant do it yet!

      Pats win 19-14: Mike Evans (WR) only got 49 yds and no TD’s for me…. not much production. REALLY thought he would have a better season but so far not so much.

    well, must say JJ was correct – most of your bench you want to fill up with RB’s and WR’s; next time, i’ll focus more on getting quality RB’s

    Reply
    1. JJ

      I believe you have to grab a RB1 (starter not in RBBC) within the first 2 rds of our draft. You can always find a WR1 in 3rd/4th rds. Then I load up on 4 or 5 RB’s and 3 or 4 WR’s. As you probably know, RB’s are the most likely to get injured. So you gotta have a deep bench and hopefully draft the backup to your RB1.

    Looks like Zeke will start his suspension next week. So before running out and grabbing Morris/Mcfadden, look at their schedule for next 6 weeks.

    Reply
    1. ajarnbangkapi

      If the suspension holds this time, that puts the Cowboys visit to Atlanta in week 5 of the suspension, BUT Zeke will likely be relaxed and healthy coming into the final stretch/playoffs.

      Reply
    2. ajarnbangkapi

      Now that he has some free time, think Zeke will be joining the ATL gay price parade? Perhaps THAT is a more appropriate venue for taking a knee???????

      Reply
    3. JJ

      After some research, there’s a 50/50 chance that NFLPA will file a injunction in NY. CB picked up Mcfadden this am, so Morris is still out there. If you have the rm on your bench, it’s not a bad speculation. The problem I have besides the 50% he gets to play all yr, like Brady, is numerous.. First, the Dallas OL is not the same as last yr. They have been struggling to open up holes for Zeke. Second, the six week schedule is brutal. 4 of 6 games are against top 5 run defense. And on top of that, Zeke would come back in week 13, starting week of playoffs. And finally, looks like it will be a RBBC. No thanks!

    I’ve got TWO kickers….Matt Bryant is my guy but he’s listed as quuestionable with a bad back. Harrison Buckner (K), KC is no slouch either and he got me 18 points on Falcons’ BYE week. Should I go with a 100% healthy Buckner on the only undefeated team in the league or switch back to a less than 100% Braynt going up against the Dolphins? What to do!

    JJ – I’m gone for next 8 days but I’ve got a question:
    Alvin Kamara (RB) got 15.7 points on 75 yards

    Chris Thompson got 24.8 points on 33 yds
    * Why so many points for so few yards on Thompson?

    Reply
    1. ajarnbangkapi

      Hi Flo – Prepping for work tomorrow, so I will take a shot if I may –

      Thompson ALSO had over 100 yards receiving (also counts) on 4 catches – each catch scores points as well. PPR league means point per reception. I think we are a half ppr league.THAT little wrinkle makes RB’s that accumulate receiving yards especially valuable. Might have had return yards as well, didn’t check (why Tyreek Hill scores so much for KC).

      If you are looking at the “quick box score” screen of your game, look just above the word Tally Beachshaggers (sounds Aussie). Click on the other three buttons besides quick box score for the breakdown.

      If I am wrong, apologies, but that is my understanding

        AB, correct, rushing yds and passing yds are worth .5 pt for each yd and fumbles are worth -2 pts. As you said, click on a player and click on more stats. Also, some of these guys are on special teams. Same point system for yardage applies.

        ajarn – So when it shows 31 yds or whatever it’s not showing all the yds? When it’s showing 75 yds it’s not showing all the yds? Odd. Thanks for the reply.

        Reply
        1. JJ

          Flo, For running backs – they only show rushing yds and for wide receivers – they only show receiving yds and they never show special teams yds unless you click on “other stats”, where you can find all the stats for any player.

            No rookie players win in first yr, it’s a learning experience or stick time if you played videos. Remember, I told you it’s 25% draft, 25% WW and 50% luck with injuries. Your doing fine buddy in your first yr!
