I’m sitting at 6-2 second in my main league and with a solid roster so i should be in the mix. I’ve weathered the bye weeks pretty well, this is the worst for me as it is for most but my opponent is the same and also the weakest team in the league. With that in mind i’m looking to punt either the TE or DST position this week depending on what looks a better streaming option but going into week 10 based on my team i will have an open bench spot that i can stash someone as a potential league winner.
What would everyone’s opinion be here, my roster is below and there could be changes tomorrow depending on who gets dropped this week for the bye week hurt.
Options would be:
- Stash one of the high value handcuffs - Malcom Brown, Spencer Ware. I’m leaning Brown in case the Rams rest starters as well as injury insurance.
- If a solid QB gets dropped like Luck which could happen, do i insure Cam Newton? will be a trade chip if needed but the QBs get doubled up in my league so if i lost Cam it’ll be a big loss for my team.
- Just stash another WR/RB guy like DJ Moore, Sutton if dropped, Golladay if dropped, Josh Adams etc and hope they find their way to consistent touches and/or increased roles for their teams?
How would people go about this? I’ve not had a free spot before this early in the season so usually i’m playing keep away from opponents or have two DST/QBs for playoff streaming but this year based on matchups i don’t need another DST or QB beyond Cam insurance. (FYI Ekeler is owned but if he is dropped he would be in the mix as well?)
