Here’s my weekly fantasy ramblings, err, opinions…
There’s not much out there to acquire if one of your RB’s gets injured or is unproductive. That is why I jumped on getting Wayne Gallman off of waivers.
He’ll replace Barkley who I have on 2 of my teams, and he’ll also be starting this week in favor of Gurley who I have on another 2 teams.
I stream defenses and kickers week to week, so this week I’m going with Green Bays defense on 14 of 18 teams. Out of the other 4 teams I’m starting NE’s D, that I just happened to have seen available.
The other 2 D’s I’m starting are the Buc’s D. Why? Because Greenbay wasn’t available, and they were the best option of any other defense I seen. While the Buc’s D won’t get you points with a shutout, they will get you points with turnovers & sacks. A decent option when no other favorable match up is available.
I’m going to keep the Panthers and Cardinals kickers this week. Both have been consistently scoring, and the match up is pretty good for both.
I have dropped Steffon Diggs from the 2 teams I had him on. He’s been a severe disappointment, and waist of a roster spot. Especially with solid WR producers available throughout every league.
If you’re not dropping dead weight, regardless of what they’ve done in the past, you’re not playing to win!
Pro tip: Pick up Jacksonville’s DJ Chark Jr., or Washington’s Terry McLaurin. Both will get you solid points from the flex position.
