Yes, Mike Williams is injured and Marquise Lee is hot garbage so far, but I'd put my top 2, top 3, top 4, top 5, or top 6 against yours over the next few years anyday.
If we're just looking at this year (which Jules confirmed is the case) this makes sense. But, here's where I see the holes.

WR1: Julio vs. Thomas - I like Jones better this year and every year going forward. I love Thomas, he was a long time feature in several of my league and I had him in HHM as a rockstar keeper since his rookie year. But here's where I think it really matters, Brees is 40 and I think he's done in 2 years making Thomas a major unknown long term.

WR2: JuJu vs. Golladay - I like Golladay better, but I totally concede I'm probably on an island with that one. We don't know what to expect out of JuJu with AB gone and him receiving double coverage. Most of the rankings project him as basically being the new AB, but I'm not convinced. I think Golladay will be the next Michael Thomas.

WR3: Adam Thielen vs. Keenan Allen - Not sure what the ratings say, but gimme Thielen all day simply based on availability. Factor in the eventual Rivers' retirement and this feels like an easy win over the next 5 years.

WR4: Robert Woods vs. Mike Williams - I think Mike Williams is a much, much sexier pick and again I don't know what happens when Rivers is gone, but when you factor in health and outside factors I much prefer the high-floor of Woods when thinking about a WR4. Wouldn't be shocked if Jules' chart sees this as a big win in your favor though.

WR5: Golden Tate vs. Tyler Boyd - If you're a Boyd believer (I'm not, mostly because that offense is gonna suck for a while) and you think Tate's days are numbered, this is a win for you. Even if Boyd under performs I concede that Tate's best days are behind him.

Bench/Depth: Arcega-Whiteside/Meyers vs. Kirk/Gallup/Lee - I acknowledged that depth is my biggest weakness and I give you a win here, but even so I don't think it's a huge gap. Kirk vs. JJ is probably pretty close. Meyers is a total unknown and Brady will be gone soon (maybe?). I'd take Jules guys over yours any day.

Thomas is 4 years younger than Julio, who is already 30. For two guys with pretty identical production, I'll take that anyday.

JuJu was #10 WR last year. Hell, my #4 WR, Tyler Boyd, outscored Golladay last year. JuJu is also 3 years younger, and a top 5 ranked WR in dynasty while Golladay is #15.

You know what surprised me. Keenan Allen is 2 years YOUNGER than Adam Thielen, who is already 29 years old. If you want the guy on a run first team with Kirk Cousins over guy who has missed just one game in the last 2 years and is the clear #1 on his pass first team, have at it. Especially when you add in my having Mike Williams in case anything happens to Keenan.

I'd actually mix those up, putting Boyd at #4 and Williams at #5. And, at this point on my roster, I'd much rather Boyd and Williams' upside over the next few years over the "low floor" of Robert Woods (who has exactly 1 1,000 yard season in 5 years and is one of 3 mouths to feed). Don't even get me started on Golden Tate. Hell, I'd rather Arcega Whiteside than Tate, who I would never, ever want to start. At this point on my roster, give me the upside over low floor.

I like Arcega Whiteside alot, but Gallup is looking really good so far this season. But I agree, this is a win for me too.

Michael Thomas, JuJu Smith-Schuster, Keenan Allen, Tyler Boyd, Mike Williams, Christian Kirk, Michael Gallup, Marquise Lee

2. Jules:
Tyreek Hill, Brandin Cooks, Stefon Diggs, DJ Moore, Anthony Miller, Albert Wilson, James Washington, Hakeem, Butler, Terry McLaurin, Preston Williams

3. Omni:
Julio Jones, Kenny Golladay, Golden Tate, Adam Thielen, Robert Woods, JJ Arcega-Whiteside, Jakobi Meyers
I would take any of Hamlet's guys over any of yours except Julio. I am not a huge fan of Jules' wideouts because it feels like a roster of Little Fast Guys who get injured a lot and fade quickly once they do. Not coincidentally, I owned (and traded away) both Brandin Cooks and Tyreek Hill.

One week. no injuries. I can't imagine that will continue.

Although, for shits and grins, I totaled up my backups as if they were starters. With the typical starting lineup, I'd have Rivers, Mack, Singletary, Boyd, Kirk, Gallup, Williams, Waller, Fairburne, and Buffalo D as my starters. I would have scored 133.07, which would have been the 5th highest score of the week. Scary when my bench is competitive too.

But, like I said, it's not likely to continue.

Pretty bad start for the good guys. Continuing last season's trend, I had a ton of injuries, horrifically underperformed compared to projection, and had a week where none of my WRs, RBs, or TE scored a TD. If anyone has ever scored fewer points compared to their projection in the history of this league, I would be surprised.

I now have 55% of my opening day roster hurt. Tyreek Hill is out 4-6 weeks, Hunter Henry is out 4-6 weeks, and James Conner and Joe Mixon are not practicing and likely won't play. And in a development that has become all too common for me over the last year, even my fucking kicker was hurt. Cannily, I suspected he would miss the game before Sunday and picked up a replacement. Except the replacement I got scored 0 points, because of course he did.

Do we really have to go through the bullshit pageantry and formality of having a season, or can I just start the 2020 draft with the 1.01 now?

I never thought I’d be in a position to start 2-0. However, I’m well aware that my roster is paper thin and when bye weeks and the inevitable injuries set in, I’ll be scraping to put a team together.

Man, that was brutal.

Brees is probably going to be out for multiple weeks and DeSean Jackson and Alshon Jeffery were both knocked out of last night's game. Oh, and Jimmy Graham put up a zero too.

I feel like four zeroes in one week has to be some kind of record in this league.

Patting myself on the back for a couple good waiver bids. My fear with waiver bids is always that I'll be shown completely out of touch with everyone else, particularly if I bid a ton of money on guys nobody else wants anyway.

So far I've made three waiver bids this season, and all have been solid efforts, so yay for me:

Week 1: Benny Fowler, WR, NYG
$0 Ellis (won)

I correctly assessed that nobody else wants this guy. Um, yay? Seriously, though, I'm happy to win a $0 waiver claim.


Week 1: DJ Chark, WR, Jax
$17 Beef (won)
$12 Ellis
$2 Omni

I didn't win this, but Beef confirmed my valuation was roughly correct. (Or I did that for his bid.)


Week 2: Demarcus Robinson, WR, KC
$50 Ellis (won)
$47 Jules
$31 Beef
$12 Gaffer
$0 RNATB

Woohoo! Who knows if he's worth $50, but when you bid $50 and win over a $47 bid, that's hugely gratifying.

I have five tight ends. All but one are likely to miss their games this week. One is the suspended Chris Herndon, so not a huge surprise, and one is Jordan Reed, so ditto, but now Njoku and Higbee are injured too! I'm willing to trade Reed. He's only in his seventh year, and could lead the league in catches again next season, but he is injured a lot. I'm looking for a mid-round RB (not necessarily a health one), or willing to package him for an RB2.

Ouch, that sucks about Njoku. I felt good about that trade but now feel kinda bad. (I started Hock over a WR in week 2 and he only scored 6 for me, if that helps at all.)

Big Ben is officially done, now, right? He says he's coming back, but, yeah... So I released him, which now means I've released both Eli and Big Ben in the span of a month. Those are pretty much the only two guys I ever remember starting a game for my team in this league. Ben has been a solid starter for me (top 3 last year!) for years, and before him I'm pretty sure I just started Eli. I don't recall any other "name" QB on my team at any point.

The Mayfield/Jones/Mariota era has officially begun for me, but oh man how I wish I had Darnold instead of Mariota as my #3 to have a "set for years" position so I never have to think about QB in a draft again. (Two first picks two years in a row...) Maybe I can pry Darnold away from Beef next year. I almost drafted Kyler Murray at the end of the 2nd as trade bait to that end, but I already had too many QBs at the time (4 counting Ben) and Marquise Brown looked too good to pass up. (I desperately need WRs.)

So now my hopeless goal for 2019 is for Mariota to look great and Darnold to look terrible (so far so good!) to try and grease the wheels for a 2020 trade. Through two weeks Mariota is a crappy 16th, in the same tier with guys like Garoppolo and Rivers. (Yikes, what happened to Rivers?) I'm not even confident Mariota keeps his job, much less becomes valuable trade bait. Ugh.

New this season are the Everyone vs Everyone records, and right away I think they demonstrate information not otherwise obvious. My terrible Actual start isn't fully painted with just the raw actual season totals. There I'm 10th, and unremarkable compared to those next to me in the list. But when you look at actual EvE records, my 2-20 stands alone. Next in line is Beef with 5 wins, over double my win total.

I can re-arrange (or remove) any of the 10 individual tables, both up or down and left or right, so if you can think of a better way to present this let me know and I'll try it out. Right now I just stuck with the same 3 rows as last year plus added the two new EvE rows inside a spoiler box to limit thread clutter.


EDIT: If you play in multiple SDMB leagues, be sure to check out your aggregate rankings in the Fantasy football general discussion 2019 thread.

Hmmm, when EvE records are tied, should I consider that a true tie and assign the same rank to both, or should I use points as the tiebreaker?

Either way I need to fix it, because right now there are no ties and the tiebreaker is undefined. So that's not great. I never had to think about ties before, really, when it was just points.

Also, should I put the entire thing in a spoiler box? Seems to work fine, and would be more easily skippable when scrolling through the thread.

I can't remember how the division standings work for play off purposes, and in turn for next year's draft. Somebody please give me a quick hit.

I think it's the 3 division winners plus the top wildcard go to the playoffs, then the next 4 best records go to the consolation bowl. I think the only tiebreaker for anything is points; division record is ignored altogether, even when tiebreaking the division winner. I think.

The four who go to the consolation bowl are playing to win draft picks 5 through 8, in the same order they finish in there. (To incentivize winning the consolation bowl.) Unfortunately I think it was Retro who lost the consolation bowl two years in a row, which means he finished 8th but also picked 8th when a straight reverse draft would have the 8th place finisher drafting 5th. So we may need to revisit that.

I could be wrong on all of that, though.

Division record is the first tiebreaker for the division win, it doesn't play a role in the wildcard.

Nah, I still feel good about him long-term, and it's apparently just a 3-4 week wrist injury. I'm also still really excited about Herndon, as anyone who managed to put up 500 yards in last year's putrid Jets offense is going to be a star. For now I just need to hope for a TD for Fant, or for Reed to get out of the concussion protocol quick.

You almost drafted a player that I had already drafted 17 picks earlier?

Okay, now I see the issue. The whole draft I kept thinking "Why is that got dropping so much? He's supposed to be good!" And then thankfully I didn't pull the trigger, because I was mixing up Kyler Murray and Dwayne Haskins in my head and almost mistakenly drafted Haskins thinking he was the Arizona guy. I would've been super bummed. (Haskins went the very next pick.)

Up until reading this post by you, all season I've been following Murray playing the "what if" game. Only now do I see I almost drafted Haskins. Yikes.

If that had gone down that way, the moment you realized your mistake would have been a top 5 all-time moment in this league. Right behind when SenorBeef had a player on his team die.

Meh. In some ways, Haskins is a better long-term prospect.

Sigh.
How is this going to play out? Is he done? Is he gonna be stuck in Josh Gordonian limbo?

I've been away from the computer almost all weekend and just noticed the trade.

Jules gets Walton, RB, Miami

Dale gets Mostert, RB, SF

Did you guys intend this trade to go through for game time? Usually when a trade is made in the week, when you want it to be fast tracked (in this case, the default yahoo window won't execute the trade until after this week's games) both players have to ask and specifically ask for that, so I know if the trade is intended to go through right away or after the games.

Now - in this case, Mostert is the one who is going to have the immediate value, and Walton will likely not this week, so I asked Jules (the one who is trading away Mostert) and he said that he's fine with processing it before gametime. It seems unlikely that Dale would object, given he's receiving the more valuable player, but I don't know if that was the intention. I'm going to go ahead and push it through in case Dale plans to use Mostert and Jules is fine with it, but in the future please announce your trades and clarify if this is the intent if they're made soon before game day.

Yes, itís absolutely fine to process it immediately.

I see the trade has gone through and I may have to throw him immediately into a flex role. I have no idea why James White all of a sudden got switched to questionable this morning. Maybe he woke up sick.

Obvious strategy is obvious but this is why I so wanted Amari Cooper, when Dallas has a weak opponent, I can double down with Dak and Cooper, plus I’ve got the Dallas D/ST. If Elliot was holding out, I would have started Pollard as well.

And yes, I’m well aware of the competition level in the NFC East.

I'm 30 points behind RNATB. He still has Zueirlein and the Rams defense, I've got Montgomery, Chubb, and Allen Robinson. So I feel like a big underdog. But I'll be annoyed if I end up starting 0-3 while scoring 140+ points this week, which is a perfectly respectable amount of points.

Omni has to make up a 60 point deficit with Trubiski, Cohen, Robert Woods, and the Chicago defense to beat Retro.

Dale's winning streak comes to an end this week, which is too bad, he's the underdog I'm rooting for this year.

Jules shockingly opens the season 0-3.

Well, shit. Mayfield has to score a minimum 20 points to justify starting him next week, right? Daniel Jones just outscored Patrick Mahomes; I think I have to start him next week almost no matter what Mayfield does.

Yeah it sucks losing, but I donít think anyone expected Mike Evans to put up 41 fantasy points while I get almost nothing from Calvin Ridley.

I can't believe everything broke perfect for me twice so far this year. I know it can't last, but it's fun for now.

I have officially taken the lead in the Who Will Be Runner-Up to Hamlet Sweepstakes with a (surprisingly) hard-fought win over Beef. His 142 points is the eighth highest score recorded in the league this season (out of 36) so that's a tough pill to swallow. In related news, I had the second-lowest winning score in Week 1 and the lowest in Week 2, but I'm the highest scorer other than Hamlet this week. I have to make hay while the sun shines because I have zero depth. I literally have no plausible backups or bye week replacements at RB or TE, and only one (Mecole Hardman) at WR, who may no longer be usable once Tyfreak returns.

Jordan Reed is still on the trade block. At this point I'll take an RB4/5 for him.

Ugh, so frustrating that I can't pick starters to save my life. 3rd most potential points on the season -- legit 2nd tier behind Hamlet -- but second to last in actual points. (Dead last on the EvE table.) That D+ is killing my team.

I see this trend of me having the lowest potential points and highest coaching grade is a trend that will continue all season. Suppose that's to be expected when you only have like 10 good players to pick from and your entire bench isn't getting playing time.

Gonna be a long year.

Yep, I'm in the same boat. It's going to get even worse once the byes and injuries begin in earnest.

I picked the right week to start Jordan Howard, 31 points.

Nice breakout game from Chubb too, 37.5 points with time to go.

After careful consideration, I've decided to start the Giants DEF instead of the Steelers. That's how fantasy works, right?

In that case, I'm starting Jameis Winston and Chris Godwin. They scored ~50 points more than the players I sat them for (to be fair to me, Godwin has been dealing with a hip injury and was a gametime decision).

Sorry for those that have sent me some trade request over the last two weeks and my lack of response. My wife has been in the hospital and between work and kids my life has been a complete cluster fuck. I'd see them and say to myself I'd should look at that, and than I'd completely forget.

With that, I may need to at least look at a partial rebuild. Any of my players (except Elliot) are up for grabs. I'd be looking for a return of combinations of draft picks and young talent.

I can’t believe how I squeaked by with a win this week despite putting up an abysmal number of points. Kinda the reverse of a couple years ago when I was racking up points but still losing. I’m quite happy of my record so far this year, and I’m loving all those 2020 draft picks I’ve got.

Is the existence of Hamlet a good thing?

I don't think I can bench his Charkness again. He's been one of the best fantasy receivers this year and I benched him because I keep thinking of him as a fluke that'll come back down. But he seems to be the real deal.

Seemed fine last week when I got back to .500 by beating him.

Seriously, though, Christian McCaffrey is the fucking man. I don't know if 44.70 points in a game is a record or anything, but Jesus Christ that guy is carrying my team almost single-handedly.

It can’t be a record as Aaron Jones just put 45.70 points on my team this week.
