Hello peeps, Lets discuss and review your week 1 AND give you advice for your week 2 line ups!
So my jackaholics, how did you do week 1? Did you get caught off guard with an injury that crippled your team? Did a line up of Crowder Anderson and Scotty Miller wreck your OBJ, Thomas, Brees roster? lol if that did happen I feel for you. But lets drill down and make smart moves now on this very important week 1 waiver wire! Now for week 2!
This is very important disclaimer… IT IS ONLY WEEK 1! NO FIRE SALES, NO TRADING AWAY YOUR TOP PLAYERS CUZ THEY HAD A BAD WEEK! Be smart guys and gals.
So I will show you my thought process of my current line ups and teams, i have only 2 teams because, having 8 teams can and will usually be more of a hassle then fun. (Just my opinion).
Here is my SUPERFLEX TEAM – 12 TEAMS
This is my first SuperFlex draft ever.
Yes i did got 1st mahomes and 2nd Lamar Jackson
If you picked Lamar Jackson early and heard the rabble rabble rabble from the other players. Think on this He was 6th in the league in rushing yards.
So this league is a blind waiver $200 cap for the season. Which means i have to bid on each player I am trying to pick up, but also there is no waiver wire order based upon losers getting picks first.
The Jacknowsports pick up of the week. Scotty Miller WR for Tampa Bay, Brady loves 5’10” or shorter, white receivers. He had a good week one. With Evans having injury issues his whole career, this slot receiver is primed for a good season.
You may be asking… “Jack, why the fuck do you have Bourne on your team?”. That’s a great question. here is why. I had drafted Deebo Samuel late as a 3rd or 4th receiver. I had dropped Deebo due to being re-assigned to IR. Bourne was slated as 1st string starter for the game. With that being said, here is what i learned. TRUST YOUR PLAYERS! Also Jimmy G is who I thought he was and what he showed in the playoffs last year. He is not a gamer, FYI Bourne was open in the endzone and Jimmy threw a lame duck to him, which got swatted away by Peterson.
My week 1 dilemma was Courtland Sutton was questionable for Monday Night second game. Deebo was swapped for Bourne. So I decided to go with the play count over possibly better more explosive player… Anyone see James Washington’s TD? I did, I should have started him and went with “expert” picks instead of a guy who I am big on going into the season.
This week, will be a lot of waiver watching and injury report updates.
TEAM 2- FAMILY LEAGUE-10 TEAMS
This is my roster for week 1. As you can see it went pretty well.
I will say this about 10 Team leagues, they are hard to stay on top. You MUST stay on top of trends in Free Agency. This League is a waiver order league. Worst gets first. You can easily go from a winning to losing week to week if you dont shake up your line-ups. It is rare you draft a team that has no injuries or that you happen to draft all fantasy studs.
So what did i learn from Week 1 from this team/league?
I am going Dobbins heavy until he doesnt produce TD’s. SF and Garrapolo looked awful, which directly affects Kittles output along side of his knee injury.
I don’t need to make any adjustments on this league as I am waiting to see what Fournette will do.
Jacks Week 1 Free Agency Pick ups!
Benny Snell Jr Pittsburgh RB
Scotty Miller Tampa Bay WR
Nyheim Hines Indy RB
Injuries to be aware of!
Le’Veon Bell possibly 2-3 weeks out NYJ
Marlon Mack Blown Achilles Indy
Blake Jarwin ACL DALLAS
All these guys are down for multiple weeks, each one has a handcuff that you can get in free agency. Buyer Beware Shultz which is Jarwins back up looked awful week 1. Keep an eye on him moving forward.
Thanks for checking out week 2! Check back Next week to see if I stay undefeated!!
