Aaron Jones or Marlon Mack?


#1

Mack is available on waivers right now, should I drop Jones for Mack? Or maybe drop Duke Johnson?

My other RBs: DJ, Coleman, Clement, Kerryon, Duke Johnson Jr


#2

Drop Clement. Get Mack.


#3

I might be using Clement+Coleman in a trade to pick up Diggs so I don’t wanna drop them right now


#4

You’d drop Clements over Duke? That’s puzzling unless you think Philly trades for/acquires another RB soon.


#5

What has clement done so far? Philly always uses an RBBC. And you have no way of telling who is going to be good in any given week. Plus I think theres still a decent chance they add another player to that committee making it worse. Good luck trying to guess who to play out of smallwood or clement on a weekly basis.

I can see Duke actually carving out a role for himself. He already was starting too and then last game inexplicably fell off. But I think going forward, he’s still the passing down guy and their 2nd best receiver.

If you’re using Clement in a trade, than drop duke.


#6

I guess alot of people still see value in Clement. Today someone in my league did:

Bell, Clement, Gronk for Drake, Ertz.

Useful in trades I guess.


#7

Nevermind, wont be using Clement in a trade, guess I’ll drop him for Mack. Have a feeling I’m going to be in competition for Mack though…

I only have $28 left (lowest in my league), and my league’s remaining waiver budget average is about $51. How much do you think I should bid to get Mack? Considering I’ll be dropping Clement. Sidenote: the Smallwood owner who is desperate for RBs, just told me he would be dropping Smallwood too. He has $54 left, so I can safely assume he’s probably going for Mack as well


#8

you should bid everything. And you’ll probably lose.


#9

Wait what? I can’t tell if you’re sarcastic or not haha

Why would I bid everything I’ve got left if I’m probably going to lose?


#10

Agreed, bid everything, but it won’t be enough. (You don’t lose your money unless you win)


#11

Is it smart to bid the rest of my budget in Week 8? Won’t that really hinder me for the rest of the season+playoffs?

First time in a FAAB league


#12

I’m assuming you can do $0 bids for players no one else bid on to fill out your roster on various weeks. If so Mack is worth way more than anything you will buy for under $28 rest of season anyway, so might as well try and get a core piece.


#13

I’m not being sarcastic. You should bid everything on the off chance your league mates are morons.

But I’m saying you will likely lose if they aren’t dumb.


#14

What about for the rest of the season then? I’m banking that I’m sticking with this team for the rest of the year? and hoping I win bids on $0?

I’m also looking to pick up Trequan Smith so I guess I’ll have to just bid $0 for him


#15

You’re halfway in the season. Don’t be those nits who sit on FAAB only to have to use it later on guys like Chris Ivory. When a starting RB shows up on the waivers, I am always willing to spend everything.

Only thing you need to bid on going forward is defense. And if you plan a couple weeks ahead, you won’t need to spend $.


#16

Good to know, thanks. Still learning the ropes with bids and FAAB, brand new system to me


#17

At least you’re adapting with the times. I find that people who are new to faab, are always way too conservative with thier bids. Throwing the odd 10% here and there. The way I do FAAB is I just wait for impact players, and i bid huge. And i typically bid on them early. Guys like Lindsay, as soon as he showed up i bid like 30-40% after week 1. Cause getting an every week starter from week 1 is very rare. And then when Chubb came around, i bid everything. And now if Mack is there, i would be willing to bid everything cause we halfway through the season. Longer you wait to use FAAB, the less valuable cause there’s less games you get that player for.


#18

Makes sense, I messed up quite hard early in the season with my FAAB bids, and so I’m worried if I spend the rest of my budget on Mack now, I’ll be struggling for the remainder of the season.

But I guess I have to remind myself of this, I need to make the most of Mack now to get me into the playoffs at least.


#19

So… I got Marlon Mack beating out bids of $23, $18 and $7


#20

It was haha
