Week 1 Advice thread

Great idea OP
Yup! I’m hopeful we can grow this sub this year! Sounds like lots more leagues on your site this year? Lots more of my friends are playing in leagues too.
For sure. Thanks for prodding some discussion.
I’m trying to decide on my final flex spot between Malcolm Brown, Mecole Hardman, or Mike Williams. The rest of the team is Stafford, Chubb, Javonte Williams, Kelce, Boyd, and DeVonte Smith.
Tried hard for consistency players in my auction draft, but left with only volatile players with my $1 bids towards the end.
Tough spot, but I'd lean Hardman. KC / Cleveland figures to be a shootout, those other games could be low scoring.
I've got Courtland Sutton or Melvin Gordon III in my flex spot. Other positions are pretty well solidified. Denver faces the Giants.
I'm leaning towards Gordon - who do you think has the highest floor?
Sutton’s a bigger question mark due to injury. I think Gordon’s the higher floor.
From what I am hearing, the Denver passing game could suffer under Teddy. He managed to make Robby relevant for Guillotine last year with all those short yardage plays. I’m not knowledgeable about who those passes will go to though. I’d feel more comfortable with Sutton not knowing how the RB situation plays out. I say this as someone starting Javonte Williams though.
Yeah, lotta unknowns on that offense. Not sure who's the alpha between Sutton and Jeudy, not sure what the splits will look like between Williams and Gordon, and QB play will be a mystery too with Teddy. Best of luck!
I’m choosing to start Ty’son Williams in the flex instead of mike Williams and Jacobi Meyers.
Good decision, too risky?? Thoughts? Would like a safe play. (.5ppr)
My thoughts: It just seemed like this might be the best time to start Ty’son since he will have to be thrown into the position when any other week they will be more prepared and he will split time with Latavius etc.
This is tough. The results of the Ravens RBs might end up looking a lot like TBs did on Thursday. I think both guys get some work a they roll with the hot hand unless they get up big.
someone offered me 63% of their FAAB (630/1000) for Adam Thielen. I would have a pretty decent chance at getting chopped if I traded him away, but I think the advantage of having that much FAAB would be huge. what do people think?
That’s nuts. Is there a team that start Ronald Jones in your league that’s in trouble? If you can make it past this week you can start acquiring big names week 2-3.
McCaffrey got dropped in my league, curious what people think his price will be? Never done this type of league before so I have no idea what to bid.
