    I have no idea how Yahoo sets waiver priority but somehow I lost my Malcolm Brown claim to a guy who was 1-0 with more points than me when I lost last week.

    Goes by waiver priority not wins and losses

    If you did a snake draft it’s goes the opposite so the last pick in the 1st round has first waiver priority and 1st pick has last

    He wants to trade me Kyler, Hyde, and Stefon diggs for fournette, Christian Kirk, and darnold. League is full Ppr and .5 ppc so fuck if I know. Cam is my other qb and my other rbs are dalvin, Henry, Chris Thompson, and Royce. Making me scratch my head

    Kyler and Darnold seems even

    Fournette seems slightly better than Hyde but who
    knows with Minshew at QB, but Fournette doesnt have a Duke Johnson to take away receptions

    Kirk will probably have more targets than Diggs since Minny is going full rushing offense now

    The half point per carry makes Kyler significantly better than darnold in this league

    Ok... I may already drop Hyde for Chris Thompson or Alexander Mattison (I dropped Mattison, but am regretting it since I have Cook).

    In a PPR would you take THompson or Hyde?

    Two questions for the week (both PPR):

    Curtis Samuel vs. TB or Marquis Brown vs. Arizona?
    Aaron Jones vs. Minny or John Brown @ NYG?

    I never understood the hype to begin with on him. Since Cam's first year in 2011, Carolina WRs have been fairly consistent in fantasy production: a #1 WR that's anywhere from the 16th to 37th best at the position and a second WR that's in the 40s or not even top 50. So if Moore's the 1 and he's the second WR, to me he's just someone to sit on the bench in case Moore gets hurt with no stand-alone value.

    What about Kittle for Ebron and (one of Valdez-Scantling or Christian Kirk).

    I could also trade off Marquise Brown, but then start to think the price is a bit high.

    Anybody in particular y'all really like on waivers this week for IDP?

    I'm down on Jameis. He burned me a number of times last year. I'm getting Stafford as a backup to Wentz and Baker in two of my leagues.

    Chris Thompson has never shown himself to be more than a third down back and Adrian Peterson was activated. Peterson did 251/1042 7 TDS for Washington last year.

    Thompson is in his 7th season and has never had more than 68 rushing attempts in any season.

    I’m an Ohio State homer, but even with Hyde splitting reps with Duke Johnson, I have to think Hyde has many more opportunities in Houston’s offense than Thompson splitting reps in a third down role at Washington.

    Have you watched Carlos Hyde play football? He fucking sucks and teams hate him. Chris Thompson is actually good but he has trouble staying healthy.

    A lot of the Carolina beat writers were touting Samuel as the best player in camp and the guy who had the best connection with newton. I wouldn’t get too down on him after one game especially considering the DJ Moore turnovers.

    Dropped my kicker to roster Giovani Bernard until more is known about Mixon. Gio was great for me a couple times last year when Mixon didn’t be play.

    Hyde isnt an RB2 by any means, but what do you think Thompson provides in this offense?

    Even when healthy, Thompson is never getting more than a 7/8 carry average so you are banking on the hope he gets you 5-6 points a game by going for 50+ receiving yards and might score a TD every 5 games or so.

    I understand why you might not like Hyde, but he had this exact same role vis a vis Duke Johnson in Cleveland last year and this Houston offense is light years better than Washington.

    Thompson had 1500 APY and 11 TDs in 2016/2017. I’m not sure if he returns to that but Washington is going to be behind a lot and he’s going to be on the field enough to produce as a high end flex.

    I ended up getting Brown, Andrews, McLaurin, & AD from waivers

    Didnt really expect that but now I've spent 70% of my FAAB

    Worst part of FAAB is seeing what other people bid and you wasted a ton of money

    I don’t really like Thompson in standard scoring, but he can be a beast in ppr formats. Not to mention a solid floor in 3 WR or multiple flex leagues.

    Those are all solid pickups for the rest of the season though, so money well spent.

    Hyde had 2439/17 in those same years. In 14 games last year, including the mid season transition between terrible teams, he still had 604/5.

    I think there are a lot of WRs who are better value than both of them if you flex two.

    Depends on the league, but I don’t necessarily disagree with you. Not a huge fan of Hyde, regardless, and only speaking about Thompson.

    Should I trade Davante Adams for Nick Chubb straight up? .5 PPR league where my RBs are Devonta Freeman, Rashaad Penny, Justin Jackson, Peyton Barber and Raheem Mostert (:ohdear:). WRs are Davante Adams, Edelman, John Brown, Jarvis Landry.

    Basically my team is terrible and I'm just trying to not come in last.
