If anyone is interested and has the time the BBC2 show "NFL This Week" on 7mate Fridays at 10.00am is worth watching.
They do a basic rundown on the previous week's games with in-depth discussion of a couple.
I think it's worth watching for the in-depth discussion. This week, for example, they spend some time discussing the weak KC run defence explaining just how/why that defence isn't working.

Myles Garret started it but the Pittsbugh #53,Maurkice Pouncey, got a few licks in, didn't he?
I think he’ll get a short suspension too, he tried to kick Garrett in the head whilst he was on the ground as well and was lucky another Browns player was in the way. That could have been really ugly

Certainly glad I offloaded Chubb at his peak price of over $14M when he had his bye. Another couple more weeks of mediocre output and he will be pretty much back to his starting price of $9M.

I also feel for JuJu owners who stuck it out, as you generally should with premo players who under-perform early. Not only has he been one of the busts of the season but now he's got himself concussed in the 1st half. (n)

Glad I offloaded him for McCaffrey last week as well, it won’t get much better from here as Hunt gets more carries.

I’m also glad I got rid of Rudolph this week after I had him for 3 weeks after Mahomes went down. He’s pretty much ruined JuJu as a pick this year by virtue of his inability to make plays downfield

I have to admit I was wrong to keep Chubb. He is still getting the carries, another 27 today, but the lack of TDs hurts.
As to trading him now - I don't know. I didn't expect a great score against Pittsburgh given they are a top-5 defence against RBs. I'll wait and see how he goes against Miami who are a bottom-5 defence against RBs.

On a +ve note: I traded JuJu after wk.5 because I didn't trust Rudolph.
Swings and roundabouts.

@Verbal Kint
What do you think of Melvin Gordon or Derrick Henry as Chubb replacements?

Like Rupert, I kept Chubb. 18 is not a terrible score, but not really cutting it compared to what you want. Might need to move him on, depends what else happens this round. No idea who for.

I also got rid of JuJu after Rd 5, so we have that in common too.

Don't despair just yet. Chubb might have some good scores given his schedule.
Teams to come with rankings by points given up to RBs:
Miami - #5; Pittsburgh - #27; Cincinnati - #3; Arizona - #10; Baltimore - #18; Cincinnati - #3

As you might have guessed, I'm a glass-half-full kinda guy.

Full disclosure that although it appears I may have cashed out Chubb at the right time I did trade him down to Bell who has been pretty disappointing tbh. I thought with the schedule the Jets had upcoming (at that time ) that he'd perform better than he actually has. But I guess when you are as dysfunctional a bunch as the Jets are the schedule really doesn't count for that much.

His fitness has also been pretty iffy lately too which doesn't help and am actually benching him this week despite the match-up looking ok on paper, assuming he even plays. The Jets could also decide to shut him down at some point so it wouldn't surprise me if I have to burn another trade on him. :rolleyes:

Oh dear. And Bell hasn't scored that much better than Chubb, has he?
At least you made a decent amount of cash trading Chubb->Bell so I assume you upgraded elsewhere?

Kept Ju Ju due to trading OBJ instead in RD6, so looking forward to hopefully relegating him to the bench for the remainder of the season but E Sanders injury and now Ju Ju’s, further complicates the matter.
