Full PPR. I'm thinking of offering Pitts and Antonio Gibson for Waller and Gainwell. Stupid? Is Pitts going to break out?


not stupid... but wouldnt make the offer if i were you the running back is more important than the TE... unless you have good RB depth...

and as pedestrian as Pitts has been, he does get a lot of targets, and the offense will always play from behind... And Patterson has to be a flavour of the month, doesnt he??

Good points. In this league, Taylor and Ekeler are my starting RB's. My other RB's are Eli Mitchell, Sermon, Pollard, Mattison, and Michael Carter. My starting WR's are Diontae Johnson and Deebo, and I'm flexing Ceedee Lamb. I have no other WR's.

Maybe aim higher than Gainwell, if possible, but I'm just not big on him. Maybe he becomes useful by the end of the season in PPR leagues. But I see what you are trying to accomplish and this deal would do that for you.

I will never endorse the term "breakout" for a rookie TE, they're just far too unreliable.

Like Femiruv said, maybe aim higher than Gainwell, or tweak in another player somehow, but I don't hate that offer for you

sounds more like you need a WR than anything else... Lamb And Deebo are a great 1-2 punch... But if you have no bench WRs, i am not comfortable with Johnson being my third...

Maybe trade Gibson for a WR straight up?? or add Johnson and get DJ moore + a RB depth...

Wow. As stupid as the Bengals/Packers game was, I'd imagine that Crosby had a very nice fantasy day.

Browns defense pulling Ekeler into the endzone for a TD when he wanted to take a knee.

Thank you very much, Cleveland.

:whoo:

I was curious about that since he missed 3 FG.
Sometimes missed FG are not scored very favorably so I checked:

Fantrax/D2 = 14.9 pts
ESPN = 13 pts
Sleeper = 12 pts

What a blood bath for me yesterday.

In my big first place money league matchup

He has brady. And derrick henry. He played claypool since this week since ridley was out…and also got to slot in mattison last minute over miles sanders.

I meanwhile had aaron jones split work evenly, shenault seemingly be forgotten…diggs disappoint againt, waller disappoint again, and NE d somehow get 4 points against houston. I also sat sutton.


In mbbrl corry davis, mike davis, and hockenson all stunk in smash spots.

In dynasty danny jones concussed. Ive played him twice, his two bad games. Davis stunk again. Mixon was active but not used much. Again, sutton and claypool on the bench.

In guillotine. I really loved my . But im toast.
Mahomes very un mahomes like in a smash spot. Barkely hurt, golladay hurt, cooks 3 for 23, mike davis stunk again, and i thought i switched my kicker out n didnt n got a zero. Browns d i thought would be fair still, nope -2. So bw golladay, barkley, cooks, and gould, and browns d i got 4.2 total points.

- Lamar Jackson has the 5th most passing yards, and more than Patrick Mahomes even though the Chiefs have been losing/needing to pass quite a bit in their games through the first 5.

- Lamar Jackson has a higher completion % than Tom Brady and Jared Goff, is 11th overall out of QBs with more than 50 attempts (excludes Dalton, Tyrod)

- Lamar Jackson is tied for 2nd in passing plays over 40yds and is 3rd in plays over 20yds

what in the wild world of sports is a goin' on here???
seems like a great combination of talent development at QB/WR for Ravens mixed with playing from behind/needing to air it out week after week.

I am excited to see what Bateman brings to the table in this offense, what a comeback last night against Colts' practice squad secondary

Teams are selling out to stop that running game. Yes Indy has a horrid secondary, Denver did not, and he thrashed them as well. Obviously Lamar did not magically become a proficient gunslinger overnight, but he' obviously improved to the point that he can't be ignored in that area. The playbook on Lamar has always been, make him throw the ball, and until that changes, this is likely to keep up. And once it does, perhaps the Ravens running game will find renewed life?

Fantasy teams thrive or starve based on Lamar.
He can be wreckless with the ball. The fumble against Indy in the red zone. A few other times he optioned out of handing the ball off and he nearly lost the handle.
Other than that i have no opinion.

I'm gonna reserve too much comment except to say he almost single-handedly won a game for us in D1. I don't have him anywhere else since your comments are valid - the floor can be low at times, but man, the ceiling can certainly be game-changing.

I just sent an offer of Gibson for Jefferson.
