I’m tattered, broken, exhausted, and out of FAAB. I’m playing for $1K this weekend and some hooligan that isn’t even playing for a prize snaked Mike Boone from me and I am the Dalvin Cook owner. Now I will have to settle for the worst holiday entree, which is CJ Ham, as a back up plan. 

Fantasy football can be frustrating and anxiety inducing and jealous idiots that just want to watch the world burn will do what they can to step on your toes. But it is a season of gratefulness because we have made it this far. We are in the GREEN baby, we returned our investment and some. There’s only one thing left to do and that is bringing that trophy home and reimbursing our holiday spending. Here are the rankings for Championship Week.

    If Boone/Mattison get the start over Cook, where would you rank them against Drake?

      MB says:

      I’d have Mattison highest if active

  2. Wacha Wacha says:

    I know J Winston has been on fire lately but do you worry at all about him missing his star receivers? Also is HOU defense really that bad I haven’t seen them at all this year?

    • MB

      MB says:
      (link)

      Yeah they’re pretty bad,. eh. A little. Perriman has been strong and I expect them to be playing from behind in this one

      • How to Cook Forty Humans says:
        (link)

        yeah perriman was a pretty high WR prospect back in his draft class that BAL mostly didn’t give much time to. all sorts of WR take 4-5ish years to really show up, esp if they weren’t really given starting chances those 4-5ish years. treadwell and doctson aren’t dead yet either (although they’re far closer to perriman on that by now). agholor’s pretty bad by actually has produced. m.lee when healthy was starting to look pretty good over at least 2 years, but basically never healthy.

    Already won 1 league chance to win another this weekend. Standard league. Flex position is my only tough call. James Connor or Mostert. Tough call rankings are close. Who would you play?

    • MB

      MB says:
      (link)

      Conner probably

  4. Ed says:
    (link)

    Pick 2 for ppr
    Thielen
    Kupp
    Perriman
    AMiller

    Thanks for the help this year.

    • MB

      MB says:

      Perriman and…. between Kupp and Miller. Kupp for safe-ish floor, Miller to smash

  5. William Hung says:
    (link)

    I’m heavily invested in the niners with Mostert, Gould, and DEF… smart or dumb?

    I love what Mostert has been doing lately, so I can’t bench him. At K and D, my other options that “experts” seem to like are:
    K- Fairbairn, Koo, and Forbath
    DEF- Colts, Pitt, Atl

    What do you think?

    • MB

      MB says:
      (link)

      I’d stick with the SF Def, and Fairbairn in a shootout

  6. Michael says:
    (link)

    Rank them please – 1PT PPR. Also starting Rivers and Carr, looking at replacing Carr with a #4 WR.

    K. Allen
    AJ Brown
    Dj Moore
    Tyler Locket
    Breshad Perriman
    Anthony Miller

    • MB

      MB says:
      (link)

      Moore, Allen, Perriman, Miller, Brown, Lockett

  7. miles proudfoot says:
    (link)

    Thanks for all of your advice to help get me to the finals!

    Here’s my lineup for now for half PPR, so you see any changes that should be made:

    QB: Murray
    WR: Robinson Sutton, Theilen
    RB: Barkley, A Jones
    TE: Doyle
    Flex: Mike William’s
    K: Tucker
    Def: NE

    Bench: Hilton, White, Boone, OJ Howard
    Waiver: James Washington

    • miles proudfoot says:
      (link)

      DeAndre washington is on the wire as well.

    • MB

      MB says:
      (link)

      You’re welcome! I’d play Howard over Doyle

  8. Bob says:
    (link)

    So I grabbed Perriman plus I have Thielen, Allen Robinson, and DeAndre Washington (now the starter).

    Which one of these four should sit? Non-ppr.

    Thanks!

    • MB

      MB says:

      Thielen

  9. Mr. A Knife says:

    some owners just want to try to win each week, even if they aren’t in finals. this is a good thing. competition and all that. it’s certainly better than the reverse, being a deadbeat once you are out of it. jacobs being ruled out wednesday after no news saying he was still even injured is pretty MF’ing dirty though as i had him in quite a few spots but dropped him just now for somebody else this week, even if just to block opp from boone (i’m in finals everywhere i own d-wash till about 12 hours ago when i dropped him, oddly).

    • MB

      MB says:
      (link)

      Brutal. I mean yeah I see the competitive side, but I can vent here so I did.

      • Mr. A Knife says:
        (link)

        yeah it does suck for you. i actually wish leagues were completely filled with guys that want to win each week rather than the opposite, which is much more common, that guys once they think they are out just go absentee entirely or tank. now by thursday what sure as shit looked like it was going to happen seems to be, MIN coach str out lied on sunday/monday when he outright said cook is fine and they could’ve played him more IN sunday’s week 15 game and would be fine for week 16. throw MIN coach in with the other lying sacks like those at ARI (DJ), SEA (too many to note by now, most lately lockett), LAC (can’t remember most recent instance but i know i’m right) and likely others i can’t recall right away. MIN guy did similar (but not AS bad) with thielen recently too. OAK with jacobs this week (but i’d already assume gruden is either just ignorant if not outright liar)

        • MB

          MB says:
          (link)

          Yeah you can never trust a coach. They’re just playing strategy for opponent preparation

    I’m back with my weekly RB inquiry. I’m playing against a D. Cook owner in the final and I was able to “snake” M. Boone. However, now that leaves me with a bigger pile of “meh” to choose from for my two RB slots. Which two do you like?

    D. Freeman
    R. Mostert
    M. Sanders
    D. Montgomery
    D. Singletary
    M. Boone

    • MB

      MB says:
      (link)

      Good call grabbing Boone.

      Right now, Sanders and Singletary. You can run on the pats

      • ryguy_4 says:
        (link)

        Update: I was able to grab D. Washington to add to the RB clusterf**k that I’m currently dealing with.

        Does that change anything?

        • MB

          MB says:
          (link)

          Probably Washington over Singletary

    Need to start 2 out of the above… assuming that Amari Cooper and Breshad Perriman are unbenchable, and Kerryon Johnson isn’t worth a try.

    and also need to choose between Austin Hooper and Jared Cook.

    Thank you!!!

    • MB

      MB says:

      I’d go with Washington and Boone

  15. Ron P says:

    These are my first chances at a Championship so I’m over-thinking every decision.

    Standard Scoring League:
    Need 2 RB – Kamara, Chubb, Boone
    Need 2 WR – DJ Moore, Perrimon, AJ Brown, Fuller
    Need 1 TE – Waller or Henry

    .25PPR Scoring League:
    Need 1 RB – Bell or Deandre Washington
    Need 1 WR – Kupp, Golden Tate, Kirk, Ward Jr.

    Thank you for everything this season!

    • MB

      MB says:

      Chubb and Boone
      Moore Perriman and Waller

      Washington and Kupp

    Broo I made it to the chip game…who should i start out of the following? .5 PPR

    -C Kupp
    -J Conner
    -C Kirk
    -D Washington

    Thanks as always!

      Lets goooo

      Washington

  17. Mordacious Levator says:

    20 team redraft PPR, drop samuels for d.lewis? this is just a block move to hurt opp for next week, i doubt i’ll ever be playing d.lewis even if henry goes out (this league uses week 17)
    QB (1): winston, griffin, eli, d.jones (i had owned both starters all year, both winston/eli have injury issues and i dumped a backup IDP and bo scarbrough for their backups just in case)
    RB (2): j.white, AAron, boone, lat murray, j.samuels
    WR (3): edelman, julio, aj brown, beasley, deebo
    TE (1): waller

    seems smart to be safe on my QB’s since i had gotten so lucky to obtain some of these guys in season (deebo and aj brown before they blew up, j.samuels (but he gave little value mostly, but for a 20 he’s still better than AVG for worst RB spot), have no clue how i got boone just now), the rest were drafted. this team was easily the best all year (in record too, that part is of course lucky)

      Nice scoop on Boone!

      Yep, go ahead and do it

  18. Eric the Waiter with Hands for Hands says:
    (link)

    gotta play 3 out of edelman, mclaurin, a.miller, boone. FP’s top PPR flex guys say miller is the bench. i’m thinking it might even be edelman, albeit that is seriously risky as i’d think a.miller could take his first bad game in the last 5 or 6 since he IS tied to trubisky. similar could be said for mclaurin (and he hasn’t been close to as good as miller over last month for sure). to be fair, trubisky has been better in general than brady for the last 4ish or so weeks anyway.
