The most frustrating time of year is upon us. Curious to see everyone's rosters and optimism before it all falls apart. My week 1 lineups are as follows:

League 1 - 12 team Standard league 1 QB 3 WR 2 RB 1 TE 1 K 1 D 1 FLEX 5 BENCH

QB - Andy Dalton
WR - Stefon Diggs
WR - Tyreek Hill
WR - Marquise Goodwin
RB - Todd Gurley
RB - Jamaal Williams
TE - David Njoku
K - Matt Bryant
D - Jacksonville
FLEX - James Conner
BENCH - Keelan Cole, Adrian Peterson, Tyrod Taylor, Carson Wentz, Mark Ingram.

League 1 - 12 team Standard league 1 QB 2 WR 2 RB 1 TE 1 K 1 D 1 FLEX 7 BENCH

QB - Aaron Rodgers
WR - Michael Thomas
WR - Larry Fitzgerald
RB - Leonard Fournette
RB - James Conner
TE - Greg Olsen
K - Matt Bryant
D - Jacksonville
FLEX - Jamaal Williams
BENCH - Marshawn Lynch, Chris Thompson, Donte Moncrief, Cameron Meredith, Patrick Mahomes, Ryan Grant, Mike Williams

So glad I drafted Conner in both leagues. Took some stink for that, and it might pay off for a few weeks.

I think my second team can really make a run at a title, but I'm not a big fan of my receiving core in my first team. Dalton is just a placeholder for this week because I just can't trust Tyrod Taylor against the Steelers.

12 team PPR league:

QB - B. Roethlisberger, J. Garoppolo
RB - K. Hunt, D. Henry, D. Johnson jr., M. Ingram
WR - D. Baldwin, M. Goodwin, W. Fuller, K. Cole
TE - R. Gronkowski, G. Kittle
D - Titans
K - J. Elliott

pretty okay I guess, considering I picked 11th. WR is a bit weak and Gronk obviously needs to stay healthy.

I also took Conner in my league in the 13th or 14th round. Bonus points for me because I'm in a PPR keeper league.

QB - Rivers
WR - OBJ
WR - Adams
RB - Ajayi
RB- Collins
TE - Ertz
Flex - Conner
K - Boswell
DEF - Pittsburgh

Bench: Corey Davis, Carlos Hyde, Robbie Anderson, Peyton Barber, Chris Godwin, OJ Howard, Kenny Golladay

Only issue I see is that I have too many Bucs on my bench, but other than that I feel like I'm pretty set at most positions. I think Anderson and Davis both have WR2 upside, so I may move them to get an upgrade on Ajayi or Collins if either of those guys underperfom.

I'm assuming he is only gonna miss the first drive at most. He should be matched up against Sean Davis who ranks as one of the worst safeties. I'd be starting him if I had him and will be an option for DFS.

So I'm in my 3rd year of an auction keeper league. Took over a team and it was pretty bad. My original keepers were Hyde, Lockett, Hurns and Decker. I was usually the team you wanted to play when you needed a win. But now on paper I'm ranked as one of the better teams so hopefully they can do it on the field

My week 1 starting lineup

QB- Brees
RB- Kamara
RB/WR- Marvin Jones jr
WR- Julio Jones
WR/TE- Josh Doctson
TE- Trey Burton
DP- Eric Kendricks
DST- Saints
Kicker- Succop
HC- Green Bay

Bench- Dion Lewis
B- Crabtree
B- Gillislee
B- Chubb
B- Anthony Miller
B- Goodwin


This league does use head coaches which some people aren't a fan of but some like it. It does throw some strategy into it, you don't need to start one if you don't want too. If a team is down a couple points going into the Monday nighter and a team is available they will pick them up and hope they get the win

WR1: Julio Jones
WR2: Tyreek Hill
RB1: Andrian Peterson
RB2: Dalvin Cook
TE: Zach Ertz
Flex1: Kyle Rudolph
Flex2: Danny Amendola
K: Chris Boswell
D: Steelers

On the bench I have Latavius Murray, Randall Cobb, Bilal Powell, Austin Seferian Jenkins, Taylor Gabriel and Martavis Bryant.

16 team non-ppr league. I finished 2nd last year so I had the 15th pick this year.
Only 4 bench spots.

QB: Aaron Rodgers
RB: LeSean Mccoy
RB: Carlos Hyde
WR: Michael Thomas
WR: JuJu Smith-Schuster
TE: George Kittle
FLEX: Marshawn Lynch
K: Robbie Gould
DEFENSE: Broncos

BENCH: Cooper Kupp, Adrian Peterson, Matt Breida, Alfred Morris.

I also drafted Chris Carson and just traded him for JuJu Smith-Schuster. I feel that should be a win for me.

Any week 1 lineup suggestions?

I need GB to shut down Chicago tonight. I'm 21 points up but my opponent still has Howard and Burton tonight. This could be a close finish.

WR: Smith-Schuster
WR: E. Sanders
TE: Njoku
D/ST: Saints
K- Tucker

Bench

TE - J. Cook
D/ST - Raiders
K- Jambo

Happy with my team. Had a good start to the season.

My opponent has already set a league record for points and still has two players left. Kamara, Thomas, Sanders all went off.

Week 1 win - 117.76 - 117.74! That pick six extra point for Greg Zuerlien just put me over the top. Monday night football was stressful.

Won 139.82 to 81.34 in the 1st league and 121.2 to 111.6 in the 2nd league. The James Conner pickup was a godsend week 1.

Will likely sit Jamaal Williams in week 2 as I have decent options on the bench in both leagues, although if Rodgers is out I may think otherwise. Hoping the Goodwin injury is not too serious. Tyrod Taylor, you're up.

In a 12 team league I had the 6th highest score in the league...lost by 102 points.
1 point PPR, and bonus points for 100 yard rushing games, 100 yard receiving games, 300 yard passing games.

My team sucks, it was an Auto Draft team due to other committments that night, and I didn't adjust my predraft rankings....hence I took Barkley over Alvin Kamara....fail!!!
I really should not have played this year as I don't know the league well enough anymore, and I really didn't have time to prepare this summer.

QB Brees
RB1 S.Barkley
RB2 D.Lewis
WR1 AJ Green
WR2 A.Robinson
TE Kelce
Flx D.Johnson
Flx I.Crowell
DST Chargers (Suck it Chargers)
K M Bryant

BN R.Penny
BN B.Roethlisberger
BN K.Cole
BN T.Eifert
BN D.Moncrief
BN N.Hines
IR A.Jeffrey

So yeah it's a pretty lousy team, but a few guys did have pretty good weeks...and I still got absolutely destroyed. I'll hold the Charger defence all year and grin from ear to ear if they put up a -6 every week.

Time to sell on Conner already? I'm considering shipping him out to while his value is high and try and grab a guy like Royce Freeman and a wr upgrade

Are you in a keeper league? I'm stashing Conner on my bench because he's the likely starter in Pittsburgh next year and Bell could easily get suspended again or hurt when he comes back.
