    Default Playoff Match-Up Help

    Who do I start? (16 team H2H, 2nd week of playoffs)
    QB (1): Mahomes
    RB (2): Josh Adams, Gus Edwards, Justin Jackson, Jeff Wilson, M. Gordon
    WR (2): K. Allen, T. Hill, A. Thielen, J. Gordon, K. Golladay
    TE (1): Gronk, Burton
    Flex (1): One of the above
    K: Badgley
    Def: Texans

    Pretty easy decisions besides RB.
    Adams - @ Dallas
    Wilson – vs Denver
    Gordon/Jackson – vs Cincy
    Edwards - @ KCC

    Right now I’m projected to lose 110-107. I average 80-ish points per week between Mahomes, Allen, Thielen, and Hill. So if Melvin Gordon doesn’t play I just need like 20pts from my RBs to have a good chance at winning.

    That's a tough call on the RBs. If Gordon sits out (keep an eye on that situation--he's a for sure start if he can go), I'd go with Edwards (vol + matchup) and one of Jackson (great matchup) or Wilson (potential volume). I really dislike the matchup for Adams--Dallas has a tough run D.

    Gordon is a must start if he plays obviously. If not, you have to start Jackson in his place. Edwards is a solid option.

    Flex - I've been singing the praise of Golladay all season and with Jones on IR and Tate gone he's emerged as the man in DET.

    You'd play Golladay over one of Thielen, Hill or Allen? We only have a 2 WR starting position. So I've been using those 3 WR as my 2WR and Flex.

    No way--gotta stick with those 3. Det heavy favorites which mean Golladay may not get the volume he's been getting lately (prior to last game). Plus, tougher matchup w/ Patrick Peterson.

    Sorry, no, not over one of those 3.

    Your "flex" was empty and you had everyone else bolded in their positions so I assumed the WRs were slotted there! Should have read the (2) beside it, my bad

    I was trying to offload J.Gordon and/or Golladay but everyone who was in a buyers market was really only 3/14 teams (top 4 are just so far ahead of others no one was buying) so I had to hold onto them. Sucks really because they are good, just not good enough. I even offered Thielen+Golladay+picks for a top RB, but no one was having it.

    I find that the most frustrating thing about Fantasy Football, my teams usually end up stacked in one position between WR or RB and the teams willing to trade are in the same situation position wise.

    I would go with Adams and Edwards vs KC. I have a strange feeling about Baltimore in that game....

    I started:
    Wilson - 9.6pts
    Edwards - 6.7pts

    Bench:
    Adams - 3.6pts
    Jackson - 3.5pts

    I'm down 112.38-122.40. I have Thielen going tonight and he's out of players. Ooo man is it tight. He had Kittle too. My unsung MVP for the week if I get the win is Badgley with 16pts, ahhh I'm nervous. Come onnnnn Thielen.

    Good luck, hope your week finishes better than mine!

    At one point late in the 3rd quarter I had a 97% expected win percentage, just to watch A. Cooper go off for like 150 yards and 2 TDs... The worst part, had I started Stafford who got 4.7 points I would have won by 3. Goff and his -0.3 lost me the week as the 3rd seed.

    Thielen was wide open for like 10+yard gains like 5 times.

    OC has to be pissed at Cousins because he made TERRIBLE choices all game. And now I'm more upset at the Chargers for playing a hurt Melvin Gordon a couple of weeks ago against a terrible team just to have him get hurt and have him sitting on my bench.

    ARGH.
