    Have my main on Wednesday night. Should be interesting. I AM STICKING WITH MY ORIGINAL DRAFT . . . unlike FFL

    No QBs until round 8. Even though the guy that won it last year drafted Rodgers, round 1, pick 1, #luckbox

    Well that didn't go excellently... was picking 10th in a 12-team non-PPR league, was glad that the Zeke decision was taken out of my hands the pick before mine, but didn't know Melvin Gordon was in a similar situation so took him too early (fourth round). My starting lineup for week one (we also have a defensive player spot):

    QB Russell Wilson (Sea)
    RB Todd Gurley (LAR)
    RB Derrick Henry (Ten)
    WR Julian Edelman (NE)
    WR Tyler Boyd (Cin)
    TE Jimmy Graham (GB)
    FLX Matt Breida (SF)
    DP Alec Ogletree (NYG)
    DST New York Giants
    K Aldrick Rosas (NYG)

    DP and DST will just be streamed on a game-by-game basis. Not too happy with my team

    It's not the greatest mate

    Claim Devin Singletary, Dede Westbrook and/or James Washington from waivers

    I did look for Singletary late on in the draft, but he went 85th

    Others are gone too - Westbrook 64th and Washington 142nd!

    Decent. Got a bit panicked at the end and made a few season long picks rather than week 1 picks.

    QBs: Watson (HOU), Winston (TB)
    WRs: OBJ (CLE), Westbrook (JAX), Fitzgerald (ARI), Jeffrey (PHI), Woods (LA)
    RBs: McCaffrey (CAR), Ekeler (LA), Jones (GB), Singeltary (CHI)
    TE: Ebron (IND)
    K: Fairbairn (HOU)
    DEF: Steelers - since swapped with Seahawks but waivers aren't processed until tomorrow. I'll claim the Chiefs or Eagles if don't get them (9th in the waiver list for week 1)

    Week 1 Team:
    QB: Winston vs SF
    RB1: McCaffrey vs LA
    RB2: Ekeler vs IND
    WR1: OBJ vs TEN
    WR2: Westbrook vs KC
    TE: Ebron vs LAC
    W/R: Fitzgerald vs DET
    K: Fairbairn
    DEF: Seahawks*


    If the Air Raid offence that wasn't used once in pre-season is used by Arizona, Fitzgerald could be a steal. I might swap Woods into W/R yet. Jones and Singletary are against 2 top against the run offences. Winston should loads of joy against our secondary where as Watson is likely to just be over run due to amount of changes around him since last week. Jeffrey will be a decent season long investment but the Skins are decent against receivers, their weakness is through the middle.

    Disappointed not to land a QB/WR duo though. When one is on song the other usually benefits.

    One guy drafted 7 Patriots! After week 1 they are expected to go 10-0 (so 11-0 after the Steelers). Fuck.

    Yep, looks pretty decent. I was a pick away from getting Larry Fitz, was gutted when I missed him, would've been a steal where he was going, did really well for me at the arse-end of last season.

    I drafted five RBs and five WRs, so the fifth of both of them and also my backup TE are rookie gambles.

    Bench:
    QB Kirk Cousins (Min)
    RB Melvin Gordon (LAC)
    RB Justice Hill (Bal)
    WR Sterling Shepard (NYG)
    WR Will Fuller (Hou)
    WR DK Metcalf (Sea)
    TE Noah Fant (Den)

    Seems the Seahawks are serious about using DK Metcalf, but he had minor knee surgery in August so he might be eased in, so I might benefit from the QB/WR duo!

    Not a fan of Patriots' guy's all-or-nothing approach... but I'm sure he's a lot happier with his team than mine

    Kind of hoping the Gordon hold out lasts the season as I took Ekelar early

    Apparently Metcalf is almost ready to go so that's a nice pick up (practiced this week). Just waits to be seen if Seahawks throw the ball.

    I also took Prater as a sub kicker but I have already dropped him and am claiming Kenny Stills for the Watson/Stills combo. WR's have ruined me the last 2 drafts so I've gone for 6 this time to get plenty of rotation in their. I'll probably rotate DEF also season, basically whoever plays Miami, 49ers, Tampa, Bengals and Arizona should be ok

    I had Stills as my fifth guy for a bit last season... difficult to commit to starting him but them you kick yourself when he pops off 20+ points! Forgot he went there actually, probably affects Fuller's output - obviously Hopkins is The Man but Keke Coutee looked good last year, not enough passes to go around!

    Coutee is injured (not enough for IR). Fuller was rested all summer so fitness is taken lightly. Any slack and Stills should be WR2/slot a decent amount in first 3 weeks

    Doesn't look great! Packers seem to have something over the Bears, though (despite the Bears beating them to clinch playoffs last year). Recorded it so fast-forwarded through the non-play this morning, Packers' offence also didn't seem up to much... maybe both will hit their stride.

    Create a Gamepass account but don't pay for it. You get full game or 40 minute version or highlights after the game. I'll probably use it for the Steelers Vs Patriots and just stay off line until the following evening

    Of course he's gone to the Pats on a 1 yr deal

    Smells Bill tapped him from his time at Steelers. "Fuck things up, get a move for mad money, fuck that up, get cut, we'll pick you up on a deal that fits our cap space"

    The devil works hard, Bill Belichick works harder

    My mate called that straight away, I was thinking surely not...

    Finished watching Hard Knocks last night, feel sorry for the Raiders!

    Ffs can't wait til 18:00 tomorrow. Was gonna go my mate's again but would have to leave in the middle of Saints @ Rams so I'll just watch it all at home.

    Finally booked my trip to Washington DC for Giants @ Redskins in the penultimate week of the season, cost a fucking fortune but it's happening. Can't wait to see two 3-11 teams go at it - tickets on StubHub already cost half of what we paid.

    Nice one That your first Giants game in the States?

    Lower tier for Rams Vs Bengals in London is 180 each. Upper tier middle of the ground ~150. None of my friends that big into it to pay that much. 65 for the nosebleeds at either end. Not worth it. One plus is I could stay with the brother in law in Chelsea. Maybe if the prices stay and the pound plummets against the euro will make it value. If it was the Niners I'd be alright with the price

    Gardner Minshew, some dude

    If you listen to podcasts check out Barstool Sports (or YouTube videos), he's nailed his rookie QB analysis so far, BEFORE they were drafted. Went back to college just to play QB at some community college, probably the one option for lads not good enough for NFL. Surprised more dont do it

    Yep, first Giants game at all in fact - didn't go to the Rams game in Wembley a few years ago, can't remember why cos I've been to a London game every year since

    Ouch, could get pricey with travel.
