Should I start Roethlisberger agains the Chiefs Div2 NCAA defence or go with Brees against the Browns?

Cleveland at least has a pass rusher in Garret. The Chiefs probably have the worst defence in the NFL. So I think AB challenges 300 yards today.

Looks like I made the right call. 500 yards and at least 6 TDS for Ben today

Fantasy is a funny game. Last week I put up the 3rd most points in my league but end up losing. This week I'm on pace for around the 2nd or 3rd least and I'm on pace to win.

No, redraft league.
I'm Looking at a 3 way trade that goes something like:

Hilton, Little, Conner
For
Fuller IV, Ertz, Hyde

Then,

Howard, Fuller IV, Burton
For
Hunt/Barkley, Evans


My lineup would go from

Hilton, Juju, Diggs, Conner, Howard, Kittle
To
Juju, Evans, Diggs, Hunt/Bark, Hyde, Ertz

Thoughts? Is the first trade worth it if the second guy backs out?

Thoughts.

Mixon is out.

Bernard or Hyde? I'm leaning towards Bernard.

12 team, 3 keeper league, standard scoring.
Need massive help at RB. OK at WR.
It's always way too hard to acquire good RB talent. McKinnon injury killed me, Freeman losing most touches didn't help either.
I do not know what to do. Obviously off to good start, but I have no faith that continues without some RB talent.

Kirk Cousins Min - QB
Michael Thomas NO - WR
Tyreek Hill KC - WR
John Brown Bal - WR
Dalvin Cook Min - RB
Marshawn Lynch Oak - RB
Jack Doyle Ind - TE
Tyler Lockett Sea - WR

Jake Elliott Phi - K
Chicago - DEF

Bench
Royce Freeman Den - RB
Javorius Allen Bal - RB
Kenny Golladay Det - WR
Michael Crabtree Bal - WR
Amari Cooper Oak - WR
Alshon Jeffery Phi - WR

Take a stab and try and buy Derrick Henry + something from some panic ridden team for Brown or Lockette while their value is through the roof

My dynasty league is trying to veto my trade. I'm in a bad position and essentially in a rebuild year. I'm trying to dump Bell to pick up some points this year.

The deal that was put together and accepted is:
Out of my team
Big Ben
Bell
John Kelly
5th Round Draft Pick

Additions to my Team
JuJu
Ekeler
Sony Michel
First Round Pick

I don't believe in league vetoes but that's a terrible trade by the other manager.

We had our first fantasy-related dust-up of the season over a trade yesterday. It's really an annual tradition. Keep in mind everyone in my league is over 30. I will never understand why grown ass men lose their god damn #### over a game.

Pretty happy with my roster at the moment, 12 man league, defending my title to the death this year, off to a 2-0 start $

QB - Ryan Fitzpatrick
RB - Alvin Kamara
RB - Saquon Barkley
WR - Tyreek Hill
WR - T.Y Hilton
TE - Zach Ertz
W/R - DeSean Jackson
K - Dan Bailey
DEF - Jacksonville

Bench;
QB - Alex Smith
RB - T.J Yeldon
WR - Julian Edelman
WR - Will Fuller
TE - Jesse James

My bench doesn't have a terrible amount of talent to draw from at the moment but the Bye weeks don't look like they'll put me in too much danger

Should I trade LeSean McCoy for Davante Adams?

Buffalo's offense may be the worst in the league but Aaron Rodgers is also banged up....

Yeah I was happy with that trade but the league didn't like it. They didn't want the other manager getting Bell and Ben.

So I had to find another way of dumping Bell. I ended up trading him away for Ty Hilton and Lamar Miller. I really wanted JuJu though. I'm not as happy with the trade but at least I have some guaranteed points with either of those guys.

I would do that deal. Adams should put up a lot more points.

Yup. At this point owning Bills players should be a last resort option

I was the manager trading OBJ and the league thought I was getting the better end of the deal. The thing is the other manager already has Cook and Elliott as his RBs, so he didn't need Ingram but wanted the upgrade at WR, whereas I'm pretty deep at WR but lack consistent RB production and need insurance for Conner if/when Bell comes back.

If anything I would say that the other guy is over paying for OBJ.

That's what the criticism was. You plunk that trade into a trade analyzer though and it gives the other guy 2.6% increase in scoring over the year and docks me -2.5%. I think it's pretty even because Cooper and Jeffery are both fairly inconsistent, so it comes down to streaming them correctly, and Ingram is more RB2 than RB1.
