Okay kids, I'm in deeeeep trouble

EDIT: 10 team, 0.5ppr, 4-man keeper league.

I’ve been in the 2/3 spot for most of the season. Felt pretty good about it. Was sitting at 6-3 and then three losses in a row. Doesn’t matter how, but I’m now 6/6… ALONG WITH TWO OTHER TEAMS. As you can see, my point production has been fine, but matchups have killed me. Next two teams are 5-7 right below us. Eight out of the ten owners in the league are 5-7 or better!

I’m the top 6-6 player.

THIS WEEK I PLAY THE CURRENT #1 10-2 team and I’ve got to do everything I can to win.

Current roster:
Team%20as%20of%2011-27
Let’s get dangerous! Here’s my emergency plan in order of my current waiver claim priority (I’m 10 of 10 right now):

  1. Dropping Burton for Brate.
  2. Dropping Baltimore DEF for KC (at Oakland) for this week. Will drop KC next week.
  3. Dropping J. Landry for Gus Edwards, but now that I think about it, should probably drop D. Loius instead. Thoughts?
  4. Dropping Carson Wentz for Denver DEF for the playoff run.

Here’s the available W/R/Ts and DEFs:

BTW, I don’t think I’m going to be playing everyone I’m going after. It’s partly as insurance and partly to make sure no one else gets them.

So what do you think? Am I screwed?

Thanks.

I think ALL of those are DEFINITE options!!!

Grab DEN now if you can to play for P/O’s.

P/O? Don’t know that term.

PLAY OFFS. :wink:

Right. All of these claims are going in tonight. Push Denver to the #1 spot?

Denver Def this week I think is better play than KC

Completely agree @psychosem17

At Cinci? Wait… their QB is out, isn’t he???

No Dalton. Driskel’s first start. Not sure AJ is rushed back since Dalton is now out.

Yep. Dalton’s done.

IDK. I’m looking back at those who’ve played OAK and CIN, and the defenses that played OAK seem to have been much better. Am I just missing something? I know Dalton and all, but is it that big a deal? They run it all day and keep it out of the air for interceptions.

I suspect Cincy leans on Mixon, though not sure to what amount of success since they will probably try to stack the box and make the young qb win with his arm and decision making. Denver runs more than most in the league anyways and is good at it. That should make for a shorter game.

You’re probably right… I’ll drop the KC claim and push DEN to the top. See anything else I can do? I’m on the edge here…

Monitor whats going on with D Jackson and possibly take a look at Godwin or Humphries. Might not be worth a claim but something to watch during the week .

If he’s out where do I go? My gut says Humphries but I’m not familiar with either.

Also, now that’ I’ve moved waivers, I have Wentz again. I’ll drop him in a heartbeat for someone else to help out.

Humphries is probably better if its PPR, other than that they are both similar. Look at any players that might have a shot at a blow up game too if you really think you are going to need more points. T, Williams is pretty much the same kind of player as D Jax for instance.

So possibly pick up Williams, put him in the flex hoping he blows up against a terrible ARI secondary? (More than Lockett, G. Edwards, J. Landry, D. Lewis, and Demaryius Thomas?)

Oy. Now THAT is swinging for the fences.

Like, I’m seriously asking: Do it do it??

I don’t know that I’d FLEX him over Lockett, Gus, Lewis or DT this week. Just MHO…but could be wrong.
