Postby stevepilch » Thu Nov 09, 2017 8:33 pm

Hi Sharks!
Standard 10 man ( Non PPR League)
1 QB - 2 RB - 2 W/T - 1 Flex

currently 7-2 ( thanks!!!) but playing my brother in law that I know wants to knock me out of the playoff contention.

Kicker on Bye! ( J. Tucker) - so I will need to drop someone to pick up a random kicker.. (ASJ? agree?)

Currently on the lineup-

QB - Eli Manning ( @ SF )
RB - A. Jones ( @ Chi )
RB - D Williams ( @ Car )
TE - A. Sefarian Jenkins ( @ TB)
WR - G. Tate ( vs. Cle)
Flex - Empty

Def : Min ( @ Wash )

Bench-
QB - Carson Wentz ( on bye)
WR - Larry Fitzgerald ( vs. Sea )
TE- T. Kelce ( on bye)
WR - Josh Doctson ( vs. Min)
RB- Melvin Gordon ( @ Jax )
WR- Will Fuller ( @ LAR )
WR - M. Jones Jr. ( vs Cle )
RB- Danny Woodhead ( currently IR/Bye)

2 things. #1. we don't know what kickers you are looking at. Depending on who is available, I'd probably drop tucker. I know most have drafted him to be the odds on #1 k in the league, but he is the 9th best. Respectable, but the spread between 9 and 16th best is a whopping 6 points. 4 and 9? another 6 points. All this means to be is there is a lot of kickers that are the same out there.

That said, #2. if you drop asj, which i would not, especially this week, you have no TE to play as kelce is on bye as well.

If you want to keep tuck, Id drop woodhead. If that doesn't work then Id drop Doctson. Reality is, upside position players are harder to come by than kickers.

Thanks Sharks!
totally makes sense. I was just trying to look at long term. I dropped Tuck and picked up Josh Lambo.
