    I think it's obvious, hoarding depth. Its the aim of the game.
    Totally lost with the argument they are on ur bench, upgrade them. Which was never on offer to me via trades.
    A guy u have picked up before anyone else thought would be useful, would start next week or started for u previously, based on matchup / gut feels n choice and form. Dump ur depth and ur picking up crap off the waiver week to week.
    R&T, ur theory sentence on why u traded those 3 for Brown... i cant believe that trade was ok to go through. Brown is whats called 'undroppable' in some fantasy setups for a reason.

    Regardless its always enjoyable, draft idea from mearcats sounds great to me.

    Thanks Mearcats, exactly right mate. I was on my mobile phone and for some reason, when I quoted Surmo13's response to Ryno's quote, only Ryno's quote was there, NOT Surmo's.
    Was weird......................

With so much RB depth early on I was in a good position to make a move for a WR upgrade by doing a double or triple trade like RnT but didn't pull the trigger on that which I think I would do next year. I want to be more active in trade talks and less dependent on waivers. Fortunately, I haven't relied to heavily on waivers this year after getting it pretty right from the draft stage.

    Still a couple of games to go and I'm happy knowing I'll be in L1 again next year but last year I got knocked outta the finals in straight sets after convincingly taking the regular season so aiming to rectify that this year.

    Also, on a non NFL topic, kinda keen to do a draft NRL comp as well as the regular fantasy for next season. Would be neat if we could make that happen.

    Not sure if it is mentioned but we do have an NRL draft thing each year similar to this with multiple leagues with relegation and such.

    That just seems bizarre to me - I would have thought the aim of the game is to have the best starting 9 possible by the trade deadline to give you the best possible chance of winning the whole thing. Whats the point in having depth when the season comes down to one or two H2H matchups. Those guys just become wasted when they could have been used to improve your 9. But as I said Im relatively new to this and haven't won one of these leagues yet in 3 years playing so what do I know Smile

    Don't get me wrong, I think depth is important, but its situation dependent, and certainly doesn't help you much when the season reaches the end.

    I get the matchup thing, I did that for the first half of the season bouncing between TY, Gordon, Tate and Ridley as my 2nd WR. But if you can find the right trade, you can go from picking between 1 of 4 top 20 WRs to nailing down a top 10 guy and be way better off, albeit at a far greater injury risk...

    Anyway, I agree, its bloody good fun.

    My season was doomed by my top 3 picks, 1 didnt play all year, 1 was injured and when on the field didnt get anywhere near his potential and the 3rd though he is easily the best RB on the team didnt get the touches

    I also managed to have some very good players on my roster not getting the time they needed so dropped them only to see them become a legit no1 within a week or 2

    Yeah, one last roll of the dice. My RBs have been terrible this year - not helped by the Bell no-show. It will be ironic if its another Steelers RB that pushes me into relegation...

    My draft was pretty average, obviously not getting a game out of #2 pick hurt and I missed the news on McKinnon's season-ender as I was off camping. So my top two RBs played zero minutes all year. Have been playing catch-up all year, and frankly pretty lucky to still be in a shot to survive in L1. I tried a couple of trades with my WR depth but they didn't come off. Probably just as well i kept Cooper given Green and Sanders being out for the season. Limp offered me an early trade for Bell which seemed like highway robbery at the time but in hindsight would have been a great deal.

    I was pretty active on the waivers to try and upgrade my RBs, but it was FA where it was at. Twice I tried to get gun RBs - Conner when I heard about Bell, and Chubb when Carlos Hyde got traded. And both times, Limp was quicker off the mark!

    Anyway, good luck this weekend.

    Mate, you must have had the worst luck out of everyone in L1 by far.

    Im not sure anyone picked that Bell was gonna be out the season. McInnon was just unlucky, and to then lose your two best WRs,,, ouch!

    Limp is very onto it with news. He got Chubb within minutes of him becoming RB1. Great FA pick up! Im wondering if he has notifications going or something, cause Im always a few hours behind him Smile Even grabbing Sutton yesterday was a good pick up and he seemed to grab him within Minutes of the Sanders news...

    Good luck all for the last round matchups.

    Who is Canterbury Charizards? Looks like Im batting for him (although he can control his own destiny by winning).

    Theyve been getting lit up this year. Outside last week against the Colts, you have to go back to week 1 for their last good game.

    That would be me! The fact it's come down to essentially a quarter final is pretty cool after a whole season...I just hope I come out on the positive side. Need a biggie from Brees this week I feel

    Sure, it was the Sanchez affect that I was most drawn too. I can see several picks in that game and not many points scored....

    My guess is that even after getting lit up by the Titans, consensus rankings will still have them among the top 5 D for next week.

    I guess a week before playoffs is a good time to find out Aaron Jones isn't a starter under Joe Philbin and for Jordan Reed to get injured right at the start of the game

    yeah sorry about that. i thought i was on my way to L2 at the start of the 4th quarter.

    he’a been a revelation since the trade to Dallas. i was ready to offload him for a decent RB as i had Allen, Green, and Sanders. thank heavens the trades didn’t go through as Green and Sanders went down. Cooper has out scored them both over the last six weeks anyway.

    Sorry bro!

    It was a complete dead rubber for me but I figured I should play it as if it meant something... I actually didnt realise I had won till I read your post. Last time I checked (after the early games) you were projected to beat me easily.
