I lost in the same league with 401. In fact, I lost in 4 leagues and drew in one.

@Quasimodo
I see you managed 5 points better than me this week. I'm now 8 points behind you
Top-50 is still attainable - only 85/93 points off. Last week it was 100 points.
and you know it is a crap week when I can beat you in a league head to head matchup hahaha

highest score by me for the week in League 1 highlights how bad this week was because trust me my team is very ordinary , even for my standards

If you have the trades and can upgrade him before he drops in value then good.
I'm just wondering if he is completely over his shin/ankle injuries, and if him catching the flu, is related to his poor recent scoring. :unsure:
I'm not sure if he has an easy run for the rest of the games, but may come good soon, if fit. Just a thought!
yeah got 5 trades, but injury issues, with Cook to monitor, WR's can't be trusted for consistency, this may be due to game plan. Today was running backs for Seahawks, they got so much ball.

Unfortunately for you, Locket is on a run-first team.
And even when they throw the ball others are just as likely to get the targets. Yes, Seattle ran the ball 43 times today but Lockett only had 3 of the 31 targets. After 2/23 targets last week and 4/33 the week before.
If you can afford the trade, may I suggest Adams could be worth it? Ultra-consistent, Rodgers favourite target, reasonably decent schedule. Only $200,000 more than Lockett.

Thanks for that suggestion, I had Adams before his turf toe, so I'd consider again. Just need to weigh up who's going well atm. Beasley from the Bills is on fire, at a nice price, he could get me an upgrade elsewhere.

Parker, 26yo, previous highest score this year was 34, that 62 is a big increase. His previous 3 year averages were 12, 15, 16.
Been consistently in the 20-35 range for the majority of the season with 7 consecutive matches with 50+ yards and 6/7 with 5+ receptions. If memory serves me correct he was an option I was spruiking as a WR6-7 as an alternative to J Washington and M Brown in the pre-season and several coaches started him but unsure if any persevered. Who’d a thunk that at the end of RD13 he would be averaging 9+ greater than Ju Ju.

I think 5 trades is enough for you to make trades this week. Lockett's BE will be very high, time to go.
I have Singletary on my bench, as you do, and I would not hesitate to trust Singletary as a reasonable cover for Cook (assuming Cook may only miss 1 week at most).

I wouldn't worry too much about Julio Jones not playing next game (see below).

Julio Jones (shoulder) trending upward
Julio Jones is said to be trending upward according to head coach Dan Quinn, and could make his return this weekend against the Carolina Panthers.
Fantasy Impact
Julio Jones was a late rule out against the New Orleans Saints on Thanksgiving, but head coach Dan Quinn offered that he may have been able to play if the game was played on Sunday. Julio's presence was missed by Matt Ryan, who looked lost at times without his star receiver. He will be an WR1 against the Carolina Panthers if he suits up.

Ok ... been playing with my tables again ..... not many trades left to go now ...

First one contains some rookie priced players (below 4k).
- used ~$250k $PP and lower as the general cut off ...
- BE's for players that have only "scored" fantasy points in one game assumes that they will score the same score as their first game

Notes and legend:
- My calculated BE's use my calculated $PP as the MN
- $PP is the current $ per point scored (the guide I use quite a lot)
- MN (Magic Number) will change from round 3 onward and is based on the average $PP across all players in the comp (~$378k)

Last one which contains some players with a high'ish $PP:
- Only contains players I've seen in various teams or considering myself - got none myself on this list thus week
- After this weeks price changes some might be better to ride out
- Used no particular $PP cut off this week as I'm looking to grab some of these players in the coming weeks ...

Haha, CheeseSteaks. How do you get CheeseSteaks from Philadelphia Eagles?
You've not heard of the Philly cheesesteaks? A Philly special? The Philly contribution to gourmet eating? Or at least to fast food?
"A cheesesteak is made up of thinly sliced, sauteed rib eye beef and melted cheese on a long, crusty roll. Common toppings include fried onions, hot or sweet peppers, sauteed mushrooms and ketchup."
Pat's King Philly Cheese Steaks.jpg
I've not had one but I'm told by my brother, who lives in D.C., that the authentic article is delicious.

N.B. You don't have to have Cheese Whizz as your choice of cheese but it is probably the most authentic.
