    Wow, what a huge game. Missed most of it unfortunately. Captain Gurley and no Kelce kind of ruined Verbals round. Congrats to who I think might be Welshy (?) on the 713 and new highest score for the season. Damn it!

    R n T....the next round could be super important before gearing up for the run home. As it stands we're looking at

    DJ vs Zeke
    Kamara vs Gordon
    Chubb vs Kerryon
    Edelman vs Adams
    Olsen vs Gesicki
    Crosby vs Maher

    Guessing we'll both play the Jags this week, so that cancels out. I think I've already given away that I'm going Edelman>Thielen/Adams. Sounds like you could have an issue with Kerryon. Captain strategy could also be important this week with no Mahomes/Gurley option.

    Looking forward to it Smile

    Thanks for pulling that together mate. I like some of those matchups and not others haha. I'll be making a couple moves this week but just not sure what they are yet. Will keep them as a surprise aye Wink

    Its a bit of a toss up between prioritising this weeks matchups vs the long game.

    Agree, C strategy could be crucial. With Mahomes my usual fall back guaranteed 50 point option is gone and not sure about Rodgers vs the Vikings. But the alternative is to risk busting out on two RBs or a RB WR combo! Will have to have a think....

    Haha, talk about a bunch of randoms getting the job done for the Saints. Reasonable chance you could hit the lead if I can't land on the right captain. You going to take Zekes 45?

    Yeah I’m looking ok. I’d back Gordon over DJ too so hopin to make up more ground. Not sure on C. Simple averages suggest I should I think. But undecided. Also not sure whether I burn a trade to add a better TE or not...

    BTW, interested to see what u decide to do with Edelman....

    Nice move on matching Barkley. You lost very little from Gesicki vs Olsen, and I guess unlucky that Gordon got injured but at least he had a nice start. Unless DJ gets out and does something here then I need about 50 points from Adams + Crosby to maintain a 5 point lead.

    Yeah cheers, to be honest I was gonna roll with Gordon but the injury news got me worried so thought it best to go Barkley.

    Yeah, got lucky with Olsen having a quite one.

    Gordon would have likely got a third TD and a few more yardage points but hey, I'll take it. He has an MCL sprain though I think so probably gonna have to use a trade next week - thats a bugger!

    Currently it looks like I have you by 64 but you have the rest of the second half with Adams and Crosby.... previously was a 42 point lead so its gonna be neck and neck you'd think come the end of this round!

    Bad start for me with Kamara vs Zeke. At least Maher didn't do too much after a fast start (funny thing to say about a kicker).

    Trying to decided which QB to downgrade to fund my last couple of upgrades. Plan has always been Mayfield this round, but his 3 and 5 week averages are both significantly better than Rodgers. Which one scores more this week?

    Thank goodness the Kareem Hunt news came out today, not next week. I was probably going to bring him in this week!

    4 teams all within 100 points of each other with 4 rounds to go.

    Those 4 teams will typically share ~12-14 common players each round (pending any trades).

    IMO, it really will come down to luck from here.

    Im largely happy with my team, but looking at others it is perhaps a little thinner in depth, specifically re my back up TE & QB. But trades can deal with that if I have to.

    Im pretty sure this comp will come down to the last few games of the last round Smile

    Top weekly score still up for grabs - current lead is Welshy at 718.

    Just noticed myself and Limp Trubiskit are in the final 16 of the eliminator.

    Hadn't checked that until now and see I scraped in by 2 points in my last matchup.

    Where is Welshy? Looked to me like he didnt do his teams for this comp and the NFL.com fantasy league which is very unlike him....

    Dammit, forgot to make my trades last night. What on earth is going on with the Saints and Kamara? He has been killing me the last few weeks.

    Well, if I made the trades I was planning to make I would have probably ended up benching Julio and lost about 15 points on the two moves. Masterstroke.

    I got a bit cute thinking Gurley would outscore Mahomes' 44 as C....
