I figured we could use a place to discuss these things.

In my work league ive got a ridiculous roster of running backs and jack and shit for wide outs.

Claypool
Antonio Brown
Aiyuk
Hollywood Brown
Gage
Curtis Samuel

I currently have A. Brown and Claypool starting because Curtis Samuel is questionable. Thoughts?

edit: I currently have Zeke, Chubb, Mike Davis, Swift and Ceh rostered. I'm trying to make a trade in this 10 man league but it doesnt look probably before the weekend.

I've been waffling on starting him. My heart says yes, my head says wait a week or two to see how target shares breakout between a healthy Deebo, Kittle, Mostert, Sermon, Sanu, and Aiuyk.

I think Aiyuk is the most talented (and toughest matchup for opposing defenses) out of the group - and that includes Kittle. I think he will feast all year... But I'm scared to commit without seeing what their offense looks like with everyone healthy.

Here's a dilemma I have in two separate leagues where I stacked/Handcuffed and ended up with similar rosters/benches.

WR/FLEX Options
Woods
Kupp
Aiyuk
D. Samuel
Cooks
Callaway

FLEX Option
Above WRs
D. Henderson
M. Gordon

Need to start 2 WR and pick a Flex. I'm thinking Kupp, Callaway or Aiyuk, and Cooks.

I feel dumb putting Woods on the bench, but I feel like starting both LA WRs is a gamble.

Any thoughts/advice?

It would be hard to start both la wide outs but theyre the highest floor imo. But Aiyuk/Samuel is extremely tempting. One of them has to do something you would think.

I just cant start a 9ers wideout over claypool right not. I think claypool will have a good jump in year two. I love the Aiyuk upside in that offense though. I'm going to play it safe for week 1. It worked for me with Antonio Brown last night.

Full point PPR, salary cap league.

With Kenyan Drake (who caught all 5 targets in a backup role) starting for Josh Jacobs at the Steelers this weekend, I could swap Darrell Henderson @Indy (caught his only target) and Gronk (@home vs Atl) for Drake and Cole Beasley (@Miami). Can't do Drake and Gronk due to salary cap constraints. Gabriel Davis is also banged up for Buff, which might boost Beasley a tiny bit.

Make the swaps, or just stand pat with Hendo and Gronk?

After my suggestion to start aiyuk last week I don't think I'm qualified to give any more advice.

Not a start sit question.

I'm looking at trading away Mixon and Michael Thomas for tyreek and Pollard.

I have Carson, Davis, tyson and jamal williams at rb behind Mixon. I have woods, Anderson, Boyd and Calloway at wr currently.

Thoughts?

According to my favorite source for trade values, you come out ahead (in terms of value) in PPR formats and itís an even trade in standard scoring formats.

All that saidÖ

I donít personally like the trade. We all know Mixonís ceiling is top 3/4 RB, and he looked the part week 1. His ADP built in injury team concerns, and the perception of his current value still reflects those concerns. Drafting a top 3-4 RB in the late 2nd or early 3rd is how you win leagues.

I worry that that your post trade RB room will drive you crazy. Carson will miss a game or two with nagging injuries (though he does play through them a lot), Davis is on an abysmal team that has a pass first mentality (and may become RBC once Gallman is more integrated), Tyson is a UDFA RB whose only getting a shot because 3 RBs ahead of him were injured - and he now has 3 vets chasing him for playing time once they learn the systems - and he will have TDs cultured by Lamar, Jamal Williams will be book or bust based on game script and RBC with Swift, and Pollard isnít a reliable start unless Zeke is injured unless youíre happy with 5-8 points.

Mixon (if he stays healthy) gives you a consistent RB1 that will get 90% of snaps and touches.

Thomas is also way under valued because of his injuries and bone headed decisions, but when he gets healthy, he should absolutely feast in the Saints offense with Winston. We all know his history with Brees - he was a top 2 fantasy WR two years in a row. We obviously donít know how the season plays out and if/when he comes backÖ but if he does, thereís a good chance heís close to Tyreekís output on a week to week basis.

So I think I would personally stay Pat.

Also, is Thomas on your IR currently? If so, who else are you going to drop to be able to have enough roster spots to complete the trade?

Haha, no one bats 1.000

Shit… I’m the fool who stashed Sermon in quite a few leagues because of all the training camp reports. My batting average is probably sub .500.

I’m learning to not trust Shannahan. Thinking next year all 49ers will be on my do not draft list.

I like Hendi and Gronk or Hendi and Beasley. I have the same dilemma with Drake on one of my teams, but supposedly Peyton Barber will get the official start over Drake. Iím sure Drake will still be involved heavily, but that Steelers defense is not a good matchup for him. Just seems like too many unknown/bad variables, so I decided to sit him on my team.

Do we think Saquon Barkley bounces back?

I’ve got a very thin RB room in one of my leagues (Barkley, Swift, Fournette, Drake) and am worried that I don’t have a reliable RB1.

At WR I have Hill, Thielen, OBJ, Thomas, Mooney, and Gage.

I’m thinking of trying to package Barkley and Thomas or OBJ to see if I can get someone like Clyde, Mixon, or Carson.

I’ve got some anxiety that I trade Barkley away and he returns to form, but also anxiety that I sit and wait and his value plummets.

Any thoughts?
