Holy shit, Saints are gonna start Taysom Hill this week. That will change my projection. BRB

EDIT: Saints go from 45-16 winner to 27-16 winner, so no real change there effectively.

I'm not a big proponent of running a full game of Taysanity.
Awesome!!!

ESPN Fantasy has him eligible as a tight end. I managed to scoop him up this week. His projected totals went from something like 4.5 to 20.8

No doubt they'll change it next week, but for now - Boo ya!

Five of your top seven plays are unavailable to me due to having used them prior. The ones that are not are the aforementioned MN/DAL game, the CAR/DET game, and the Saints who I will not touch now due to the QB weirdness and then you come to the WAS/CIN game. Agree Washington is slept on a bit, but I think so too the Bengals. Two blowout losses and the rest of have been within a score and one Bengals win beyond 8 points. I don't see Washington blowing them out, and there is a LOT of pressure on Taylor now to find some wins in a part of the schedule that offers some chances. And, I want to bet on Burrow at least once this year.
Anyone betting on that CAR/DET better have some good inside information, because there's basically no skill players (on two teams that don't have many of those to begin with) playing in that one.
Yup. That's why I crossed that one off - plus the whole don't get in Survivor on a Lions game thing.

I put in for him in my ESPN league. Auction, so I'll find out tomorrow morning. That could be a huge boon at TE. We have a $100 auction budget for the year, I have $42 left. Put in for Hill at $10. Probably won't be enough to get him, but I don't want to spend more for a one week play. Also picked him up in DSafe's league. CBS only has him listed as a QB, and I'm thinking Matt Ryan is a safer play.

The Lions curse is real but my insider info is the Panthers being surprisingly good and the Lions being not good.

The Lions D sucks, Golladay and Swift are out and Stafford has a bum thumb so I’d avoid the Lions at all costs. Only thing that would give me pause is McCaffrey, Bridgewater et al our for CAR

Mike Davis is fine. If Bridgewater plays Carolina should roll them. Not that it's guaranteed but it's one of my top bets this week at least.

You realize that McCaffrey has played like 2 games this season, right?

Bridgewater being out is the one injury I cared about. Now I'm not touching that game.

Fun rules quirk! The half can’t end on a defensive penalty, OR on an offensive penalty after the offense becomes the defense (e.g., a horse collar tackle on the interception run back). Thank you Falcons for that teaching moment!

I thought the Bengals had the worst offensive line this year, but now I’m not so sure. The Eagles’ O-line could be best described as “porous”.

Without Myles Garrett too.

And perhaps it's time to put Derrick Henry into the MVP conversation.

Every other team in the NFC (except the Falcons, who would be a half game back) would be in first place in the NFC Least.

The multiple holding calls on Colts runs to end the game were Tim Donaghyesque. Or maybe a button was being pushed at Buffalo Wild Wings.

Thanks for the help, guys. Matt Ryan cost me the game against DSafe and likely a playoff spot. Amazing how I start the wrong QB every week.

On the plus side, my law school league Commish texted me delighted about my move of starting Hill at TE. He got barraged with complaints from my opponent, and an hour long debate between 3 other guys on whether it "violated the spirit of the rules." It does, of course, but they all loved the sneakiness of it and decided not to protest. We get money for the highest single game score at every position. Unfortunately, Tyler fucking Higbee scores half a point more in week 2, so Hill doesn't get the high score prize. That would have been awesome. Extra bonus, my TE would have been Hurst, who put up a goose egg.
