I would like to lock in my trades, but my main issue is I need a cheap QB, who I will only need for this one week. Hoyer v Miami seems to be the best option, but that will only happen if Brissett doesn't play. Otherwise I'll probably have to rely on Ha (Red)skins - copping the zero is almost a better option based on his previous matches. Hopefully will know by Sunday night if Brissett will play or not, or I may just have to take a risk.

Anyone else I might be missing as an option?

The other option is Finley who is actually a confirmed starter this weekend with Dalton granted an early season 'holiday'. Doubt you could expect much of the 1st gamer vs the in-form Ravs. But he's dirt cheap and a guaranteed to start option although I would definitely go with Hoyer over him if Brissett is eventually ruled inactive and you truly only need a one week budget bin rental.

Note: Finley is probably who I will be downgrading Murray to next week after he completes his final function in my side covering for Watson this weekend, unless miraculously a better super cheap rest of season option materialises next week.

The $9M generated will come in very handy for my final planned upgrade of the season of Bell to Barkley after he returns from his Rd11 bye. Although I may also grab a better TE3 streamer like Andrews (than Hockenson who I presently have there) and to also cover Kelce's Rd12 bye. But that is really more of a luxury trade t.b.h. and also yet t.b.d.

To Captain or not to captain :unsure:

Lamar Jackson (illness) misses practice
Baltimore Ravens superstar quarterback Lamar Jackson missed Thursday's practice due to an illness.
Fantasy Impact
While the expectation is that Jackson will be good to go for this weekend's contest against the Cincinnati Bengals, this is a situation to monitor. Robert Griffin III will get the start if Jackson ends up being ruled out. Jackson has three days to shake the illness.

I really hope he plays. He scored 60 points against the Bengals in wk.06 and there's no reason to think he won't do much the same this time.
He's also my preferred "vc" option as he's got an early game and McCaffrey has a late one.

I can't find anywhere what Jackson's illness is? I understand why they would keep that secret. Anyway, reports are saying he will be fine to play.
I traded Rodgers out, kept Murray and traded in Finley, so it will be a double whammy for me if Jackson doesn't play. Had to trade this morning to get the Steelers in. Finally I have got rid of Oakland :D
Murray has an easy game and Rodgers a hard game, so I traded Rodgers out 1 week earlier then planned. I now have $9m in my Cap and looking at either bringing in Brees or McCaffrey next week. Murray has a bye12, so will need to fix that up, but an opportunity to get McCaffrey in is sooo tempting.

Forgot Haskins has the bye as well this week, so Finley would be the only cheap alternative, yes. Thanks.

Sounds like a sweet combo. Unfortunately I live out West so won't be getting up 4am Monday morning just to check my fantasy score. Don't quite love NFL Fantasy that much yet. Maybe if they ever offer cash prizes one day I might consider that but not right now. :)

So it's C-Mac into Cook for me. Although I'm guessing Watson will actually be my captain somehow. ;)

I wouldn't be getting up at 4.00am either.

Haha, unbelievable, Oakland averaging 8 this season and the day I trade them out they score 34 o_O

A great slate of prime time games for a change this week. Enjoyed Chargers Raiders today although it was more a penalty shootout at times in what seemed like a flag thrown on every 2nd play. Both Vikings Cowboys and 9ers Seahawks hold plenty of promise too and of course playoff implications for both the conquerors and the vanquished.
