Too early to tell ... but then what do the Dolphins have going for them?

What are your other options?

Re: Fantasy Football Talk 2018

Redskins D at home vs Colts and Cowboys D at home vs Giants


The Skins could be for real or just a mirage and the Cowboys D though they are better might be sabotaged by Prescott and their offense.


I dumped Amendola for Marshall in one league and got Dorsett too since I don't know how long I can survive with Jeffrey and Edelman on the bench and Shuster and Crabtree as my wrs #1 and #2probably won't carry me in a 12 team league.

I think I went for Enunwa first but wasn't high enough either time. The Denver running back too.



For whatever reason, Yahoo did have the recap of my losing game a day later.
I tried for Lindsay and Cook. Just bagged Cook though. If Graham doesn’t produce maybe he will.

Re: Fantasy Football Talk 2018

If Quincy Enunwa is available, take a look at him as a possible WR upgrade. No, the Jets won’t look like that every week, but you don’t need the whole team to be good.

Re: Fantasy Football Talk 2018

So I got Conner in the league where I had the top priority and he was still available. That means Leveon will arrive in camp today.

No one got Enunwa so I went ahead and dropped Keelan Cole for him. Other people added Kittle, Mike Wallace, Lindsay, and Dissly.

Re: Fantasy Football Talk 2018

Someone (the worst player in our league, 2-11 and 1-12 the last two seasons) dropped Davante Adams today for Ryan Grant

I of course immediately put in a claim for him and I'm hoping no one else does before it goes through on Saturday. I feel like it's late enough in the week that maybe no one pays attention to the waiver wire

Re: Fantasy Football Talk 2018

Ian Thomas @ ATL or Dissly @ Bears

This all I have left after Olsen went down.

Yeah, who knows. I have no idea who Thomas is. I know Dissly was drafted as a blocker and came up with some big plays last week. Maybe he'll get a few more targets with Baldwin out?

Re: Fantasy Football Talk 2018

You've got to be kidding me. A new owner and first time player of fantasy, who is honestly a casual football fan, started Dalton tonight against me... beginner's luck is a real thing

Re: Fantasy Football Talk 2018

I checked all my leagues and none of my opponents had AJ Green so there is something to be happy about in week 2 until I found one team had him. Dam it.

Dam Flacco threw every pass to John Brown and ignored Crabtree.

I am officially now worried about Alex Collins being a #2 RB...

Re: Fantasy Football Talk 2018

Karma? After I got -3 and -4 from the Saints D last week, the Ravens D scored -1 against me twice last night.

Re: Fantasy Football Talk 2018

I have the Ravens D in most leagues... but I'm a Bengals fan. I just hope I'm not playing AJ anywhere.

Re: Fantasy Football Talk 2018

I started Crabtree in PPR and Mixon, and played against Mixon. Not much excitement anywhere.

Re: Fantasy Football Talk 2018

I had concerns about Devonta Freeman, I drafted him twice anyway, and now he's out for week 2. I know injuries can happen to anyone, but durability was one of my concerns.

He might be waiver wire fodder soon if this continues

Re: Fantasy Football Talk 2018

TJ Yeldon vs. NE or Amari Cooper @MIA?

Sounds like Fournette is unlikely to play so leaning Yeldon. Fortunately he and Cooper are playing the late slot so I can wait for official word. When I picked up Conner, I moved Devonta Freeman to flex, Emmanuel Sanders to WR2, and Cooper to the bench. But when Freeman was ruled out, I moved him to IR (this is my only league with IR) and picked up Yeldon. I realize that I run the risk of missing out on a big game if I bench Cooper, but then I have to put up with shitty games in the meantime. This is my own fault for swinging on the fences with him after I took the safety of Antonio Brown.

I would go Cooper. I don't think Yeldon carries the full load. I think they just avoided Cooper last week due to the Rams great cornerbacks.

Re: Fantasy Football Talk 2018

It's a fair point, and I hope you're right about Cooper. Forgot to mention that it's non-PPR, and I feel like Yeldon is a safer bet to score six but Cooper has a better chance at 20. I'm playing a team that would've beaten me 170-60 last week , but so far they started Mixon and Baltimore so I'm not in too bad shape. I still have Cooper in the lineup but will see how things progress.

If Cooper doesn't get many targets this week, we should start getting concerned....

$81 of my $200 cap in my dynasty league is Bell/Mixon w/o handcuffs. Good times.

10 receptions for 116 yards isn't too bad.
