This season is flying by isn’t it? It seems like every season flies by for me lately. June-August creep by while we pound out preseason articles trying to find new angles to cover new players. Then the regular season hits and the regular routine seems to speed things up. Waivers, offer trades, turn down trades, lineups, lines ups again, tinker, tinker, watch football, and then we do it all again the next week. Whether you are 0-3 or 3-0, don’t forget to actually enjoy this little 16 week window that we get every year to play fantasy football. While fantasy baseball is a grind, fantasy football is here and gone in a flash. After cracking the top 25 last week in the FantasyPros accuracy contest, I landed at the 53rd spot this week. This puts me at 45th out of 138 rankers through 3 weeks. Here are my week 4 rankings!

    Trade my Julio Jones for Joe Mixon and Robert Woods? no PPR

    rest of roster

    QB – Lamar Jackson
    WR – Julio Jones
    WR – Odell
    RB – Derrick Henry
    RB – Philip Lindsey
    TE – George Kittle
    Flex – John Ross
    BN – AJ Green
    BN – Christian Kirk
    BN – Wayne Gallman
    BN – Kenyan Drake
    BN – Aaron Rodgers
    BN – Tarik Cohen

    • Kyle says:

      I am not feeling that trade. Mixon will get his from time to time but that o-line is awful. I also have woods and find it hard to predict who will get top targets from Goff.

      I’d hold onto Jones.

    Hey MB!

    Adrian Peterson was dropped in my 12 team H2H deep league. Of $1,000 budget (I have $998 still), what are we bidding?

        Yuck is right.

        I’m sitting in 1st at 3-0 with the most points in the leauge. You can tell me if you think it’s worth it with the below league setup…

        12 Teams
        H2H
        Start: QB / WR / WR / RB / RB / TE / FLX / FLX / K / DEF
        Bench: 6 spots

        My team:

        QB: Kyler Murray
        WR: Amari Cooper
        WR: Cooper Kupp
        RB: McCaffrey
        RB: Gurley
        TE: Engram
        FLX: Josh Gordon
        FLX: Ekeler

          MB says:

          Nice squad!

  5. Principal Blackman says:
    (link)

    Is it worth it to try and land one of Julio or Mike Evans, in exchange for Thielen and Marlon Mack? Or is that hiving up too much. It’s 1/2PPR and here’s my team as it currently stands.

    QB Jackson
    RB Elliott/Chubb
    WR Thielen/Hilton
    TE Howard
    Flex Aaron Jones
    BN Mack, Damien Williams, Malcom Brown, Ridley, Westbrook, Mecole Hardman?

    • MB

      MB says:
      (link)

      I’d definitely do that for either. You have nice depth. It’s a good upgrade

      • Principal Blackman says:
        (link)

        If that owner doesn’t go for that, should I use the same offer for Devante Adams or is that too much?

        • MB

          MB says:
          (link)

          Nah. Has to be Julio or Evans for that price

    MB! What up?! I hope you are doing well. I am in a ten team .5 PPR league. We do have big play bonuses in my league. Can you help me figure out who to start? I’m really really torn between what to do with Fournette v Denver as a RB1/2 or a Flex along with what to do with my WRs and at TE. I would really appreciate it.

    QB- Goff OR L. Jackson?

    RB- D. Cook

    RB2- N.Chubb

    WR1- T. Boyd? OR C. Scary Terry?

    WR2- C. Ridley? OR Scary Terry?

    Flex- L. Fournette? Scary Terry? M. Sanders? C. Ridley? T. Boyd ? M. Andrews? Waller?

    TE-Andrews OR Waller?

    K- K. Fairbarian

    D- Cowboys OR New England?

    Morning MB! It’s waiver wire Wednesday!! .5 ppr league & did I make a bone head move I dropped hockenson for Steelers WR dionte Johnson? My starting TE is Waller.
    I also dropped Justin Jackson to add Jeff Wilson.

    I also added chargers D

    My RBs are DJ, cook, David Montgomery, Tevin Coleman, Mostert, Chris Thompson, Jeff Wilson , Mattison , Darrel Williams

    My WRs are Obj, thielen, Josh Gordon, Aj green, MVS, John brown, Demarcus Robinson , dionte Johnson

    My TE Waller

    My QB Russell Wilson

    D chargers us my stream

    However I can’t make any adds because I have Tevin Coleman in IR slot but he’s listed as Questionable. Drop Mostert? Jeff Wilson? Darrel Williams? Dionte Johnson?

    I was also thinking dealing my Chris Thompson to the Barkley owner for Golden Tate, or include Demarcus Robinson too?

    Thanks man!

    • MB

      MB says:
      (link)

      No, that’s a nice spec add since you already have Waller.
      Holding Mostert for now.
      I’d try Thompson for Robinson and see what the owner says

      • Water boy says:
        (link)

        Thanks man!

        I have Robinson I was going to try for his golden Tate . Barkley owner also has: Mecole Hardman, Chark, Terry McLaurin, his WR3 is Lockett , his WR1 is Adams, WR2 is Hilton . Or would you stand pat?

        Last week I tried to get Miles Sanders from another owner by giving him my Demarcus Robinson. He rejected he said he’s very good at WR: his WRs are Michael Thomas, John Ross, Curtis Samuel, Nelson Agholor, Jarvis Landry, Robby Anderson, James Washington.

        I feel like Demarcus Robinson has been better than the majority of his WRs , oh and he lost AB too. Kind of crazy looking back at it I’m 100% glad it wasn’t accepted but when AB signed with the pats I sent him a big boy offer my David Johnson for his AB + Mark Ingram then another one DJ for his AB + miles sanders . I also sent him thielen for AB he rejected all 3

        • MB

          MB says:
          (link)

          Oh my bad, I reread it. Yeah I hear ya.

          I’d just try Thompson for Tate. Throwing in Robinson is too much.

  9. Drekkan85 says:
    (link)

    So the Melvin Gordon owner in our 12 team standard scoring league is really thin at RB at this stage (he’s currently starting Duke Johnson Jr at RB2, and only has Cohen on his bench as an active RB). Given the rumours of Gordon’s imminent return I’m wondering if a trade makes sense.

    I have a bit of depth (though not much elite talent) at the RB position that he may find attractive to fill that immediate hole in exchange for giving up Gordon. I currently have:

    Mixon, Lindsay, Michel, and Jamaal Williams. I’m wondering if I dangle out Michel or Lindsay and hope that Gordon does come back in a week or so.

    • Drekkan85 says:
      (link)

      I should also note that I have significant depth at WR to fill out my flex (Allen, Lockett, Kupp, Sutton, Brown)

      I doubt the owner bites. Should have tried last week haha

    I’m WR and TE heavy but Keenan Allen is available for trade. I’m trying to figure out if I can get him without killing my balance. Do you like either of these trades or just stand pat?

    1) Gurley, Sanders or Williams, D. Robinson for K. Allen and R. Freeman?
    2) Carson, D. Robinson, D. Walker for K. Allen and R. Freeman?

    Playing matchups on D this year for one league. Trick is I dropped last week’s D to stash Mattison so my flexibility is tight.

    Start 3 WR and 2 RB. No flex.

    Who’s the drop for a DEF? Thinking Gronk but I’m hopeful… Pretty deep at WR, but some tough injuries. Maybe just struggle through this week without a DEF and drop a WR next week? Dude I’m playing has Barkley injured and Robby Anderson/Kittle on a bye.

    Here’s the squad:
    QB: Mahomes
    WR: DJ Moore, Ridley, T Williams, Metcalf (D-Jax and T Hill)
    RB: Fournette, Michel, Sanders, Malcolm Brown, Mattison
    TE: Hurst (Gronk)

    QB: Goff/Murray/D.Jones (LOL I know, I’m just hoping that D.Jones becomes a reliable QB1)
    WR(3): K. Allen, Amari Cooper, D..J. Moore
    RB: Zeke, J. Jacobs
    TE: Engram
    Flex: C. Thompson
    Bench: R. Freeman + S. Barkley + Free bench spot

  23. RICE says:
    (link)

    Hey MB!

    Let me pick your brain about some trade ideas.

    10-Team / H2H / 0.5PPR

    Concern: I feel like I’m very deep at WR and have people I can lose. I’m much more thin at RB and the pending return of Melvin Gordon, will diminish the amazing Ekeler I’ve seen so far. So I’m looking to deal one of my WR’s for another RB.

    MY WR’s w/ Rudy’s remaining value:

    ODB ($184.8)
    Kirk ($162.5)
    Godwin ($144.6)
    Woods ($142.9)
    McLaurin ($138.6)
    D. Jackson ($87.8)

    My RBs:

    Ekeler ($203.6)
    Cook ($201.2)
    A. Jones ($143.5)
    R. Jones ($97.6)
    Singletary ($93.7)
    Duke Johnson ($87.7)

    Yesterday I offered Woods for Mixon and I offered Woods for David Montgomery. Both managers said I was close and just needed to up the offer a bit.

    With my roster, would you try offering Godwin for Mixon or Montgomery instead and see if he bites? I have a strong Man-Crush on Godwin but I feel like I have the depth at WR to say goodbye if I need to.

    • MB

      MB says:
      (link)

      Yeah I’d try trading Godwin for Montgomery. I think you have a lot of upside at RB fwiw

  24. Weird Fishes says:

    Someone dropped Gallup. With Tyreek coming back soon, drop D. Robinson for him? How much would you bid?

    • MB

      MB says:

      Yeah, if if you’re not starting Robinson, stash Gallup

  25. Jake says:

    Would you add Gallup or Lat Murray over anyone? Here are my flex players

    Derrick Henry, Kerryon, Michel, Mattison, Malcolm Brown, Adams, OBJ, DJ Moore, Dorsett, Agholor, Stills, Hockensen, McDonald

    • eballs says:

      Agholor
      DJ Moore

      Bench Moore imo. I’d grab Gallup over Stills

    Standard scoring. Only an 8-team league but deep benches. What are you giving up to grab engram from an 0-3 team running out: Lamar, d Adams, Hollywood, Chubb, a jones, Mike Williams, Chris carson?
    He’s thin at wr and floor rbs which I have plenty of. This guy will definitely do any trades that are pretty fair and is willing to shake his team up to get going this year. Would love to get Lamar or Adams but the price maybe too high.

    Sitting 3-0. My roster is set up fairly well but I’m lacking at qb and Te
