Fantasy Football Discussion Thread - 2018 Season

This is rough. I'm 0-3 and I'm already down 12 - 65. I had Bailey and he had Cousins, Cook, and Kupp. Going to have to make some adjustments to get as much upside as possible. Hoping that Fitzmagic stays in the flames against the Bears
 
Just getting home so I missed the game tonight...Can someone tell me if there is something seriously wrong with Dalvin Cook or if he has any longterm redflags? I say this because I just checked my email and I just got offered a bonkers trade of Dalvin Cook for Kenny Golladay straight up.

He was recovering from a hamstring injury and had a pitch count/was purposely capped

That's a bad trade

well, damn. thought this was a no-brainer, but i admittedly haven’t been following Cook all that closely because i didn’t need to. while i know nagging hamstring injuries can be a lot of trouble to get over, i was under the impression he was mostly “back” and the rest of the season outlook wasn’t so dire.

i also have keenan allen, tyreek hill, emmanuel sanders and crabtree as my other wr’s, so losing golladay wouldn’t likely be all that big of a loss.
 
What RBs did you get? I've been getting killed by injuries this season so that always plays a part.
I have Barkley, Fournette, Cook, Jones, and White. I had Burkhead but dropped him for White after this week's injury,

It's a great roster of RBs, but injuries (fucking hamstrings) have killed me.
 
Thank god my opponent had the Vikings defense this week. Woods and Rudolph could've done better but I'm not complaining about their output this week. I expect Chicago's D and Khalil Mack to feast on FitzMagic this week.
 
Yikes, my opponent has Gurley, Thielen & Kupp! Thank goodness he benched Cousins or I'd already be toast.

I started Cooks which mitigated some of the onslaught, at least.
 
Someone offered me Julio Jones, Golden Tate and James Conner for Kamara... and I'm not gonna take it. Kamara hype is real.

I did get James White for Dion Lewis + scrubs though. :)
 
Hey y'all.

I don't watch Football, but I joined a casual 12 person fantasy league with friends and I'm enjoying it more than I expected.

Devonta Freeman is on waivers and I've got a fat bid prepared for him, any reason I should avoid him?
You're me 5 years ago. I haven't watched a game since Emmit Smith was on the Cowboys. I'll be damned though if I don't get caught up spending hours looking a stat sheets and reading about players over this.

Hopefully this week I get at least one of my two running backs back.

Don't roster 3 QBs if you can only start one. Unless you got a very big bench
I just picked up Dalton for this week since the other 2 seem iffy with their matchups. Plus I wanted to block my opponents options since his only QB is Rodgers, in case anything goes wrong with him starting.

I think it's a good trade for you, even if it takes him a while to come up to speed, you're not losing too much with who you have at WR. I personally would accept that.

Same situation for me.

Have Cousins and Luck. Cousins crapped out vs BUF. I'm not confidant on him vs RAMs, so I picked up Dalton vs ATL (and still hanging on to Luck).

Maybe I should've stayed with Cousins after last night though.....
 
Kupp got me 40 last night but Cook got me fucking 2, I knew I should've benched him. My opponent had Diggs, Gurley, and the Viking defense. I'm up by 3 points because the Viking defense gave him -8, lulz.
