    I was surprised to see that there was not a best ball thread for discussion. Assuming the mods have no issue with one being created, I may as well kick things off.

    The biggest takeaway I have from my earliest DK BB drafts is that Jameis Winston is wildly under valued this year. In BB in particular I don’t see any legit argument for going QB early. There are a lot of reasonably safe bets for 4000 yards going at QB3 prices between Winston, Goff, and Roethlisberger. There are also plenty of guys with high week to week upside like Daniel Jones and Fitzmagic available late.

    Are you guys really leaning into QB late as a strategy this year too?

    My top LU has 186 with Waller still to go. It’s the LU that has 5 QBs (including Watson so really 4) and I’m pretty sure it was the one I drafted while hammered at the bar and set it to auto draft around round 10.

    Goff lead the way but the whole QB room of Winston, Roethlisberger and Danny Dimes all scored plenty. This shit is weird. 🤣

    Edit: actually it appears to be the one I drafted first that prompted this entire thread. 🤣🤣🤣

    Hahahaha nailed it. 🤣🤣🤣

    The Fitzmagic injury underscores why it is important to have at least three starting QBs on your squad. Your roster, with one remaining QB, may not be dead in the water after Week 1, but you are one more injury away from your remaining QB from that reality.

    Hey man did you have any luck? I did 4 best ball draft couple weeks ago only screenshotted one of the lineups and now I can’t find or access the leagues anywhere

    I would agree if your only playing 1 lineup. I like to manage injury risk at the QB position by keeping my ownership % spread out across my 20-40 lineups. There are going to be several QB’s that don’t get hurt and put up respectable scores all 17 weeks so on those teams that hit the right QB it is good to have more bullets are other positions. I do have a few 3 QB teams where a guy like Fitzpatrick is my QB1 and I am totally reaching but otherwise I would usually prefer to have 3 late TE’s if I miss out on Kelce or Waller. I don’t like the lack of depth at RB and WR by going both 3 QB’s and 3 TE’s especially on a site like Underdog that only has 18 rounds. On DK I do have a couple 3 QB’s and 3 TE’s on the same roster where the draft fell that way to me in rounds 18-20.

    It would be best if DK could update their best ball scoring. I think my highest score was 215 but hunting and pecking through 15 LUs isn’t exactly a recipe for accuracy.

    On the web, even though the scoring isn’t updated correctly it should have them on order of which ones you are in 1st in, 2nd, etc.

    That’s how mine is. The app is garbage and I think it’s in the order you drafted them in but I can’t tell.

    I don’t even look until halfway through the season. Am I the only one?

    If I remember correctly from last year DK has the week scoring correct and showing up by the following Wednesday.

    I’m updated now. Best LU was 215.52.

    Goff
    CMC
    MG3
    Theilen
    Lockett
    Antonio Brown
    Waller
    Harris

    I’m nearly 100% sure this actually was the one that I got black out drunk for and forgot to take a QB until I snapped out of it an auto drafted like 5 in a row. Good times!

    I like to keep an eye on it same as I like to check my staked Ethereum that I can’t sell 8 times a day.

    Whens the draft cutoff deadline? Might come up short on entries

    The week 1 drafts cut off at 6pm EST which is 2 hours 20 minutes before kick off and plenty of time to ensure all of the drafts finish in time. At 240 picks and a 30 second clock if every second of every pick gets used the draft would be done in 2 hours so there is a chance week 2’s deadline is pushed by a few minutes. Most of my drafts were all right about an hour if not slightly under.

    How much did they end up with?

    I don’t have the numbers in front of me but I believe it was somewhere around 4900 out of 8640 entries

    Wish I threw a third entry in

    Will Fullerv sat out the team’s season opener to complete a suspension that he received last year due to a failed drug test. The former Notre Dame star was set to return this week, but he’s away from the team because of a personal issue, and there is currently no timetable on when he will return.

  • yisman

    my teams already decimated

    team 1: McCaffrey, Firkser, Penny, Old Dirty Beckham
    team 2: Curtis Samuel, Evan Engram, Penny. Nico Collins

    Those are all shorter term injuries and not sure Penny or Nico Collins would ever be of any value making your top scorers in a given week – other people will have injuries as well, you just have to hope to avoid the long term ones

    I have one lineup with Mostert, Gus and Dobbins all gone for the season and had Dobbins go down on another but at least had Ty’son Williams on that one as well – thankfully I only am suffering the injuries on 2 of 11 entries

  • yisman

    I drafted Penny late on both teams because he was expected to be Carson’s primary backup. I did not know this would happen.

    Just saying everyone is going to have injuries and if yours are short term and/or limited to backups and late round picks then that is great – many people have lost higher draft pick starters for the season or 6+ weeks

    Current – 3 of 15 teams in 1st or 2nd with 7/15 being 4th place or better.

    By far the best move I’ve made so far seems to be having depth at TE. Spiked a big night from Dalton Schultz in one league last night and Zach Ertz grabbed a TE1 spot for me on my highest scoring team this week.

    Grabbing Mattison as a handcuff for Cook seems to have potentially saved a good team as well.

    That team, however, is already down Cook, Dionte Johnson, Antonio Brown, Gus and “(player-popup #tevin-coleman)Tevin Coleman”:/players/tevin-coleman-21723’s rotting corpse.

    I think you should pick up Chuba Hubbard
