What’s worse? I dropped CJ Stroud and streamed Derek Carr today? Or the guy that picked up Stroud started Geno Smith instead?

I drafted Bryce Young just before Stroud was selected in my dynasty rookie draft this year. Still believe in Bryce, but damn.

I've been sitting on the #1 waiver claim in one of my leagues for a couple of weeks now.  Is it worth it to burn on Keaton Mitchell.  I also have Gus Edwards already so it could also be insurance for him.  It's getting to the point where I feel like the #1 claim won't be as valuable barring some unforseen injuries that occur.

My two teams are 7-1 so something crazy is going.  Normally half the players would be injured by now.


Rough month, have lost 4 in a row in both leagues.  Should not have gone all in on the duo of Tony Pollard and Davante Adams.

Yes, I'd burn it.

My season went down in flames quickly.

 

Mahomes

Henry

Pollard

Hopkins

Aiyuk

Kirk

Ravens D

 

That's not a bad team on paper but somehow it went 3-6 and now I have to find keepers.


I never had friends later on like the ones I had when I was twelve. Jesus, does anyone?

My qb situation in both leagues is lacking.  Had Cousins in both while in the one league I took Herbert as well and Lawrence in the other.  Both of those have been underwhelming to say the least.  Of course there is almost nothing left out there (had to use Minshew recently because of a bye, yuck).  Having said that I rolled the dice and picked up Rodgers for both teams.  It's a bit of a lottery ticket at this point (have to make the playoffs first as well) but I had a spot open so I figured why not.

Trying to find another wideout in a 12 team league when there are 6 teams on bye, ugh.

I just perused - it's bad. Have to go to page 2 of WR FA's to even find options and even then they really aren't all that viable. Since you're taking a lottery ticket, I'd probably bet on Skyy Moore or Greg Dortch (who with Kyler has at least shown a pulse again). I would've suggested Mims Jr. or Wicks, but they're both dealing with injuries that greatly limit their upside this week if they play IMO.

Now try to do that with a TE when your only TE is ruled out.

I had two tight ends on a bye and had to start Cade Otton.  He got zero.

I picked up Robert Woods of Houston who got 0 points and Jon Mingo of Carolina who got me 10 points.  So I went 1 for 2 on my picks.  Didn't matter as my opponent had a monster day.

Not Stafford. Slight lean Minshew. Game script should mean lots of passing for Geno, but with the way SF has been playing lately, it might not even matter.

In some bye week/injury hell this week in my 14 team .5 PPR. Have to pick from one of these available dregs:

Bateman vs LAR
L Murray at KC
AT Perry vs CAR
Slayton vs GB

Or any other bottom-of-the-barrel options that are limited-owned.

Of those options I'd definitely go Slayton.
