Hockey has broken my heart this season so thankfully my many fantasy lineups are also there to comfort me, had they not also sucked. I’m the parent of dual 3-6 records and there is no way I’m making the playoffs. I run a show about fantasy football and I poach advice from other three guys on the show which also hasn’t helped.
This is my life.
However, this little tidbit every Saturday night is a group effort so you’ll potentially benefit from the information below. If you saw our show this Wednesday we had some advice that was very Chicago Bears heavy and we apologize deeply. The numbers led us that way so we didn’t have a choice.
Before we get into the sneaky starts, we should probably talk about the trade deadline.
What should a player like Christian McCaffrey yield in keeper leagues? A first and a star rookie, multiple firsts, maybe the identical trade that the 49ers made?
I have a few suitors but I haven’t settled if I’m even trading him at all. The main deal I’ve been offered is a first, a second, a fourth, and Brian Robinson. What do you think?
The deadline is tomorrow so time’s ticking!
Let’s get into starts, shall we?
Steve – Tyler Lockett is up for a big day. Germany’s prized team, the Seahawks gets a gravy matchup for WRs with TBs DBs being decimated. Look for Lockett to still slide the moment he catches the ball, but it should be early and often!
Ryan – Michael Gallup is going to factor in for me. I have him started this week in one league and he’s had at least five targets in three of his last four games. Dak is getting back to his shaky hips self and even though Sleeper has him as WR5 as they should, he would be a sneaky start.
Ted – Jeff Wilson is my guy. 71% owned/32% started in sleeper – Hot start with his new team MIA, 9 carries for 51 yards and 21 yards receiving + a TD. He’s sharing the backfield with Raheem Mostert (Hates his life) but already has experience with the system and Coach Mike McDaniel. Add a cake schedule with Cleveland and Houston to the mix for the next 2 weeks + Multi start RB?
Chris – Noah Fant 8% start last week. Lead the Seahawks in receiving yards vs Cardinals and is being used more in the passing game each week it seems. Going against Bucs defense that’s 28th ranked D vs TE’s.
So it’s no surprise we’re big on the Seahawks this week but they’re in Germany. GERMANY! If you happen to catch our show before the games start that’s awesome, if not check it out before the Sunday nighter.
Good luck on Sunday, unless your team sucks like mine.
