    Dude in my league has Melvin Gordon so he ended up starting Dion Lewis and Derrick Henry. :gross:

    Somehow this has worked.

    In my main league's group chat it was brought up that I've made the playoffs 6 out of the 7 years. My playoff record is 0-6 :killme:

    4 out of those 6 times, I was a top 2 seed with a bye.

    Hoping to break the curse this year.

    Great news guys. Picked up Henry yesterday for bench depth. Didn’t start him. Awesome start to the playoffs

    Holy shit! It’s a Christmas miracle! Two guys bitched that because of the divisions in our league they had a better record than the 2 lowest seeds. So, overnight the commish I guess agreed. So, now I have a different opponent, who instead of Derrick Henry’s 50.8 points has 6 points from the Jags defense

    Bama guys crushing on benches all year long. Ridley 3 TD game, Amari went like 200 and 2 in one of dallas first games, and now Henry. He’ll probably score 3 next week when everybody starts him

    Jameis vs Saints or Rodgers vs Falcons

    Think Rodgers is gunna come out looking to have a big game but it’s Green Bay I’m Decem and his receivers still suck. But Saints want revenge for the week one loss and weather in Tampa is supposed to be crappy Sunday as well.

    Can probably go ahead and drop Watkins for anyone that was still holding. Reportedly suffered a set back and now out for 4-6 weeks. I swapped him out for Benjamin across the board ...

    He's definitely playing well of late. Already had him on a few teams. Also speculating on Hamilton, but any of these dudes are risky for the playoffs ...

    I may actually prefer Benjamin the most. If he's playing #2 WR snaps :warn:

    My work league gives out bonuses for long runs and long TDs. He scored 81 against me. For comparison, Mahomes's best game was only good for 63.

    Is there some news I'm missing wrt to Jackson/Ekeler? I understand that Jackson looked better on less touches last week, but I don't believe the coaching staff is suddenly gonna flip the roles that have been established all season due to one week's performance ...

    Ekeler could continue to split backfield work with Justin Jackson during Sunday's game against the Bengals, Kyle Posey of USA Today reports. "[Ekeler's] wearing down a little bit. He's a core special teams guy for us and he's played a lot of running back for us," coach Anthony Lynn said. "So he's a little tired. You might see Justin play a little bit more, you might see [Detrez] Newsome play some this week."

    Yeah, I mean I don't think Jackson isnt viable this week, but still would go with Ekeler's track record. 2:1 may be a reach though, bet still stands!
