I tried to get cute with Shenault

Probably a week too early because next week vs the Bengals looks nice.

Oh well.

it rarely goes well when you try to get cute on thursday night.

I tried to put Viska into my money lineup at the last minute, and had missed the kickoff deadline. :lol:

As a Gaskin owner it was nice to see him get so many touches and hopefully starts seeing more of GL work as Howard's carries continue to fall off..

I put Viska in at the last minute to replace Williams and almost immediately regretted it when he got that early TD... In the end not much of a scoring difference between the two though

Totally agree. He’s just good man.

yep, rookie mistake

Thursday came and started the classic overthinking/"I want to make the Thursday game interesting"

It was only interesting for my opponent. :D

Need to pin this to the top of the forum - it's one of the most elementary but useful FFL rules that everyone should follow.

Thankfully SeaOtter was able to talk some sense into me not picking him up.

I had Cole in my lineup and got him out just before kickoff.
That turned out well, but now I'm probably throwing a Monday Night dart with Miles Boykin.

Totally agree. He’s just good man.

I wouldn't expect Howard's GL work to go anywhere. Half of his rushes (8 of 16) have been inside the 5 yard line and he's converted both 3rd and goal opportunities that have been given to him (2 of his 3 TDs).

I'm not a Howard fan by any means (I am a Dolphins fan though) but he has been doing his job well. Between him and Fitz's ability to get into the end zone I don't really see any reason for Gaskin to be used at the goal line.

Eh. He was stuffed twice at the goal line Thursday night before Fitz took it in. I don't see his role as secure yet.
