      RG Tiered Ranking

    Who we like at D this week? Intrigued by Rams and Ravens, and can’t get a good handle on which one to use. I do like the idea of Allen in poor weather for a few mistakes, though Rams have best D in the NFL for nearly minimum price.

  • Brendan239

    Antonio Williams is the play on FD. 4% owned and will have 14 FD points.

    Liking the Saints. They correlate with my late game hammer, Kamara, and scored 17 and 16 DKpts in the 2 reg. season games vs the Bucs. TB lost solid RG Alex Cappa to a broken ankle increasing the ability to pressure TB12 with the D that finished the reg. season first in defensive pressure. They also correlate with my punt WR. Per Football Outsiders “Somehow, the Bucs have managed to be consistently terrible on special teams. They’ve finished in the bottom half of the league in nine straight seasons and were 26th this year. That could be a real problem this Sunday since the team’s biggest special teams shortcomings are on kickoffs and punts, playing into a Saints strength in their return game. Deonte Harris was an All-Pro returner in his rookie season in 2019, and he bettered his 9.4 yards per return that year with a 12.2-yard average this year, albeit in five fewer games” I’m hoping Harris earned more snaps with last weeks performance

    NM, going Yeldon.

    Ravens – 23
    Bills – 31

    Rams – 21
    Packers – 22

    What to do with Akers? I am with the previous guy, Goff isn’t going to be great in the wind and cold. So I think the whole team will suffer. But they can still make it a game with their defense, which should leave Akers involved so right now I have him in. But will it be chasing points? He’s priced between Dobbins and A Jones on FD.

    I like packers and Chiefs. Both big home favs against QB’s that can struggle when pressured

    FD is all about TD’s. Do you think Akers can score at least 1td? Can the Rams keep it close enough or get a lead to be able to just run? Depending on which slate you are talking about he may be the highest owned back.

  • Foley27

    Fading Akers on DKs 2 game slate today, is my lineup already dead? I like pairing Dobbins/Lamar and Jones/Packers D instead

  • aquasition

    Real quiet around here

  • Brendan239

    Tonyan will be the Flex in the winning LU. 22 FD points. 40% Beasley, 90% Akers, 70% Diggs, Yeldon, Williams, Snead, Davis sprinkled in. McKenzie in one.

  • IT4MVP

    Who we liking on DK at WR for cheap? Gabe Davis or one of the KC guys or GB WRs?? Or Higgins

    I grew up with a kid with dwarfism. It was tough. People pointed, stared and messed with him. We were at lollapolooza once and some drunk kids grabbed him and he was forced to crowd surf while he was on mushrooms. I found him 2 miles and 2 hours later. He was dehydrated and his head was half shaved and he only had one shoe. It was a nightmare.

    I forget my point but I miss him.

    I really enjoyed this story; thank you for sharing.

  • rock

    Any ideas on CEH status beyond Q? I read he hasn’t practiced much.

  • Brendan239

    Wow, it’s a shot, but Everett is super cheap. If you need to “punt” to make something work he has a ceiling They might have to pass and short at that.

    My picks, in order:

    Robinson – Watkins is out
    Higgins
    Harris
    Lazard
    MVS/If no Cupp, then Josh Reynolds

    NFL.com has Baker completing 67% of his passes vs the blitz this season with 15:3 TD:INT and a passer rating of 113.6

  • HoodsFromTheWood

    Browns have scored 40+ 4 times this year, KC has 1 40 pt game

    Blitzed and pressure are 2 different thing. Just because you’re blitzed doesn’t mean you get pressure. And vice versa. I bet browns pick up a lot of blitzes which means no pressure leaving just 4 defenders, the easiest plays for a qb there is.

    Great take. Love the Saints too if I “spend up”.

  • JoCo

    KC could score 40 constantly. When they’re ahead they really shut it down. Hence all those “1 score games”. Chiefs bag it up 2 scores, the other team scores late and brings it to within 1 score. If the chiefs are pushed all game they will score and score. There was hardly opportunities for that all year. Again, these 1 score games aren’t it.
