    I don't trust Keenan Allen. Injury history and crowded WR core. Pryor is a popular breakout pick but sure hasn't shown anything. Very hard to put faith in the Jags offense. I passed on all those guys as well
    We drafted the day after the Edelman injury, but it wasn't official it was an ACL yet.

    I maybe shoulda taken Cooks. I knew the guy in the 1 slot would take him right after me if I passed on him in round 2. Tough call, we'll see. I still like Hopkins this year.

    That guy starting his team with David Johnson and Brandin Cooks.....

    If he drafted even halfway competent the rest of the way he will be tough to beat

    Qb-winston
    Rb- DJ
    Crowell (my sleeper for a monster season this year)
    Wr-Dez Bryant
    Michael Thomas
    TE- Ertz (breakout season)
    Flex-Tyreek Hill
    Bench-mcfadden on a flyer zeke is out
    I think I would like Auction.

    Would suit me well because I tend to target certain guys so there are times when I reach to get them. Auction would cure that.


    Might give it a shot next year

    Good to know that out of the ton of people JC knows in Indy, some of them has inside info on the Colts. Make sure you ask JC for inside stuff on the Colts this year.

    He also got to keep Michael Thomas for like a 12th rounder.

    Stafford
    DJ
    Hyde
    Cooks
    M Thomas
    Hunter Henry
    Keenan Allen

    Not bad. I like my team better, but his is good.

    He looks great on paper but very tough to judge teams before the season starts.

    I'm a little concerned about Thomas this year as a first round pick. He could be amazing and become a perennial top 5 guy but just as good a chance he struggles as a true #1

    I 100% planned on going WR, WR, WR, WR in the second draft after I saw I had the 8th pick again. Figured I would have AJ Green or Mike Evans in round one to Then grab guys like woodhead, powell, coleman, Riddick, in rounds 5-7.


    But when Mccoy fell to 8th and Green/Evans were both gone. He was a no brainer. I would have liked the other way better but what can you do.

    Now the rumor is that Zeke suspension will be reduced to 4 games. I think I can survive with that. Especially considering how brutal that early schedule is for the cowboys. If I go 0-4 there would be no recovering. The goal would be 2-2. If im sitting 2-2 after four weeks then get a top 3 overall fantasy player in my lineup ill be tough to beat.


    Had bell last year and went 2-2 in the first four games and made it to the finals. Maybe a similar recipe here. and the beauty of that is I still had to spend a first round pick on bell last year. This year i grabbed beckham in round 1 and didn't take zeke until mid 2.





    Still a lot of question marks on this appeal though.

    Supposedly a decision is coming monday and a reduced suspension is expected. If not, all signs are Zeke will keep fighting, increasing his odds of playing the entire season.



    Either way, as of right this moment it's looking like my ultra high risk in taking Zeke mid round 2 could pay off

    Yet you thought my team was "ok" that has Bell/Powell at RB, Hopkins/D Thomas/Fitz at WR, Olsen at TE, and Rivers at QB??

    Never had so much uncertainty on a fantasy team a week before the opener.

    Need Odell, woodhead, and elliot to all suit up. I'd settle for Odell and woodhead with a elliot suspension reduced to 3 games.

    The beckham thing feels more like mind games they are playing with the cowboys over anything else

    This thing feels like its taken a turn for the worse today. NFL throwing around its weight. May be able to get the lawsuit thrown out based on Brady results and Henderson not worried about any so called "deadline" to make a decision on the appeal.

    Did my one auction last night.
    10 team PPR

    A little top-weak at WR, but deep. Like this team a lot. Maybe it's cause I've been looking at teams in 12-person leagues...

    QB Derek Carr
    RB David Johnson
    RB Josh Howard
    WR Crabtree
    WR Davante Adamas
    TE Gronk
    Flex Stefon Diggs

    B Riddick
    B Britt
    B Tyrell Williams
    B Moncrief
    B Mike Wallace
    B Kerwynn Williams
    B Tarik Cohen

    Beckham still not practicing for over two weeks now for a sprained ankle.....and not a high ankle sprain either.


    He was shown dancing in the locker room a week ago.



    I'll be in major bind on this one. He's looking like a gametime decision for the sunday night game. I don't have anyone to replace him with monday

    Because my league doesn't allow waivers until week 2, I'm benching Beckham. No other choice other than just taking the gamble that he plays. Unless something comes out between now and tomorrow morning, he's on my bench. My team is that league is beast but not this week. No Winston, no beckham, and having to start Eli with no beckham....this is a survival week for me in that league. All you do in week one is play against the league average. Hopefully I can squeak out a win.
