Buffalo Wild Wings Update: Week Nine

I had a tough go last week in this league, as I scored enough points to win (119), but lost by 10 points. I blame the loss on Buster Davis, who I gave a shot with Leg Naanee out. Of course, I was unable to replace him once he was made inactive because I was too preoccupied during the games last week. So I’m now 4-4 and still kicking myself for not finding a way to help my dire RB situation. Tom Brady’s not helping me, and my Jermichael Finley loss is a killer, but I could have helped myself if I had a little less on my plate. So this team could easily be 6-2 and right in the thick of things. Now I’m just shooting for respectability.

I did get Jacob Tamme two weeks ago, which was great, but I had to cut LeGarrette Blount to get him, which is a killer. I had Blount on my roster as a stash-and-hope guy, but I unwisely took a shot with dropping him for Tamme two weeks ago in the hopes that Blount wouldn’t do much in Week Seven and I could get back in Week Eight, but I could not.

  • The Prince Connection: Rodgers and Nelson July 7, 2014
    If you follow along over at my Twitter account @FG_Dolan (shameless plug), you’ve probably noticed my undying love for Jordy Nelson, and the fact that I’d happily welcome him onto any of my fantasy teams this year. First of all, he’s madly productive as is: he hauled in 85/1314/8 last year and averaged 16.5 FPG in a PPR league. That was good enough to rank h […]

  • 12-Team PPR Mock Auction Review, Strategy, and Lessons Learned June 5, 2014
    On somewhat of a whim, I decided to do some mocking on Wednesday night, but instead of trying to compare ADP numbers and working out the best spots to pick from, my idea was to run an auction. We ended up getting a 12-team PPR mock auction with a $200 cap done in a few hours, although with the informal atmosphere, a handful of teams ended up going on autodra […]
