Week 11 FFGuidebook.com Results

I am in 18 Leagues this year. Divided them into active management-I set a lineup each week and do adds/drop
and Draft and Forget or DraftMasters (DM) or Draft Experts (DE) where a computer sets optimal lineup for each week after the games  are played and no add/drops/waivers allowed. You play the hand you are dealt after the draft.
In leagues where it is scored by total points I give myself a win if I beat half of the teams in the league. 

Active Management (wins in bold)
1) FootballGuys (FBG) Players Championship (FPC) Loss 5-6 out of playoffs which start this week 
2) Fantasy Football Players Championship (FFPC) $250 Classic Loss 8-3 5th place
3) FFPC $250 Dynasty #38 Win 7-4 6th overall
4) FFPC $77 Dynasty #7 Loss 7-4 3rd overall
5) FFPC $77 Dynasty #17 Win 9-2 1st overall
6) FFPC $35 Classic # 6019 Loss 8-3 7th
7) Pro Football Forecast Magazine Experts PPR Loss 7-4 6th
8) Pro Football Forecast Mag Experts Non-PPR  Win 9-2 2nd
9) Scott Fish Bowl (SFB420) 2017 Win 6-5 4th
10) Local League Win 6-5 5th


Draft and Forget (or Draft Expert Leagues)
11) FFPC $77 Dynasty DE #22 Win 8-3 3rd
12) FFPC $35 DE #5278 Win 9-2 4th
13) FFPC $35 DE #6174 Win 7-4 4th
14) FFPC $35 DE Double UP Loss 7-4 6th
15) FFPC Pros vs Joes Contest Loss 5-6 11th
16) FFPC $35 DE #7685 Loss 4-7 7th
17) Fantasy Index Experts Win 8-3 3rd
18) Fantasy Index Auction Loss 5-6 6th

So 18 games each week.
9-9 this week (worst performance of the year-to be fair I have been on a 15 day Caribbean Cruise with limited internet the past 2 weeks!!!!! 32-22 over that period)

123-75 overall (.621 winning percentage)
At .500 or above in 14 of the 18 leagues!!!

Ask the Expert Question: Who gets your vote for the first half of the season fantasy MVP?


Who gets your vote for the first half of the season fantasy MVP?

Deshaun Watson hands down. Look at where he was being drafted before the season started-in most leagues he was NOT being drafted. Many did not expect him to start week 1 for the Texans. The rookie QB has nearly 28 fantasy points per game with 1699 passing yards, 19 passing TDs, 260 rushing yards and 2 rushing TDs. MVP. Can you say Championship!!!!

Leonard Fournette. I am old school-really love the work horse RB. The Jags do not seem to have anyone else and no other weapons in the arsenal. And are most likely not to get any real weapons in the foreseeable future. Many will take Kareem Hunt but I am still trying to justify my sell high call from a few weeks ago.

Ask the Expert Question: Pick one player who's been great thus far that you believe it's a great time to sell high on -- somebody who won't be as good the rest of the season, and say why.

Kareem Hunt. He looked a little less "Superman" on Sunday Night and has the rookie wall to contend with along with two offensive linemen out. I say sell High-very high. He also seems to start slow and really explode in the second half of games when defenses are tired and run-down. He may not see that as much in the next few weeks. Well he does face PIT this week so perhaps the time to sell will be after a big game versus the Steelers this week.

Ask the Expert Question: Several first- and second-year quarterbacks have started the season off strong. Of these young passers, which one do you believe will go on to have the best NFL career?

Several first- and second-year quarterbacks have started the season off strong. Of these young passers, which one do you believe will go on to have the best NFL career?

DeShaun Watson has my eye. He has stepped in as the starter quite admirably and has some great receivers in DeAndre Hopkins and a returning Will Fuller. His rushing makes him lethal in every game and the Texans defense will bail him out on occasion. If/when in the future the Texans get a decent RB the sky is the limit.
