Playoff Prepping

First time player, i’m in a 12-team league with friends, standard scoring.

I’m feeling confident about making the playoffs in my league, so now I’m trying to get my team playoff-ready.

This is my current roster:

QB: Russel Wilson
RB: Chris Carson, Nick Chubb, Todd Gurley, Austin Ekeler, Tony Pollard, Alexander Mattison, Rashaad Penny
WR: Deandre Hopkins, Michael Thomas, Tyreek Hill
TE: Jared Cook, Chris Herndon
K: Will Lutz
DEF: Baltimore Ravens

Are there any moves you see I should consider making towards the playoffs? Players I should trade away, players I should target? Can I confidently keep the Ravens as my playoffs-defense?

I’m aware I don’t have a top-TE. I drafted OJ Howard and had to stream one since he was a total bust. I’m currently holding Cook & Herndon to see how it plays out (with Brees back, and with Herndon back). I’ll be streaming a QB next week to cover Wilson on bye.

Thanks!

What is your starting lineup requirement?

We play with:

1 QB
2 RB
2 WR
1 TE
1 FLEX RB/WR
1 K
1 DEF

I don’t think Herndon is worth rostering in redraft. Its prob a hot take because every analyst has been talking about him for 10 weeks and an off-season. I’m willing to lose out on him for the value gained at another position - or a better backup TE. What WRs are available on waivers?

Currently on the waiver:

  • QB: Cousins, Trubisky, Kyle Allen, Darnold, Finley, Wentz, …
  • RB: Hines, McKissic, Cohen, Bernard, Richard, Gaskin, Lewis, Armstead, Bolden, Burkhead
  • WR: Erickson, Auden Tate, Gabriel, Davis, Humphries, Slayton, Reynolds, AJ Brown, Cobb, Samuel, Beasley, MVS, Fuller, Dorsett, …
  • TE: Witten, Rudolph, Gesicki, Eifert, Graham, Hollister, Knox, Jarwin, Fant, …
  • K: Myers, Maher, Rosas, Badgley, Seibert, …
  • DEF: Eagles, Rams, Jets, Titans, Lions, Jaguars, Texans, Packers, Seahawks, …

To be honest: just picked up Herndon this week (Cook as well).

I prefer Witten and Gesicki over Herndon. Again personal preference. I’m willing to take the L. But I get out early on these players.

Eagles have great playoff match-ups. I’d personally drop Herndon for them.
