This is extremely similar to what my 4-3 team is looking at, including the description you gave of the 6-1 team leading the way. H2H is always going to be luck-based, some years it works out and some it doesn't.

It was fun to give this a shot. I think we're allowed to do something "wild" in fantasy every decade!

Being very active/successful on the wire always makes a huge difference, but it's also part of the exact same reason that you can likely wait on QB with a high degree of success (for more or less the same reason it works for K/DST though a less extreme example).

Kind of crazy that we are going to see Dez and Antonio Brown on a football field again this week

It is. I'll be interested to see how they perform.

Side note: This experiment is over for me. I dropped LJax last week. I have Herbert and Tanny, and will ride out the season playing matchups. LJax cleared waivers with no one picking him up. In my league's scoring system, Herbert is currently #6, Tanny #8, and LJax is #19 (average scoring).

I am currently 4-4 in that league. There is a 7-1 team. Given all variables that I won't get into here, I am still optimistic about my season (assuming we make it a full season), but if I manage to win, it will be decidedly NOT due to LJax....

Yeah, I was planning on starting Stafford but that’s out the window. I’m 3-5 so it looks like this might be it for me

Interesting, appreciate the updates. Up to 5-3 in my one decent one (0-8 in the other), with prospects looking good. Still going with Lamar. Hoping this week or next are when he finally gets rolling, but that may be a mistake. Thankfully the rest of the roster is covering.

That's it
I mean it this time
Stand firm with Lamar
The rushing attempts total are back where you want them to be.
The playoff schedule is too juicy to ignore
He WILL win you your fantasy league
So let it be written, so let it be done.

Posted this in the AB topic earlier today

2 bottom dwelling teams in my league are trading AB for Lamar Jackson.. I immediately thought this was ridiculous but then at 2nd glance, you can get LJ type #'s off the WW so..

Get right game vs. the Pats this week coming off MNF.

Pats defense is really bad right now.

If Lamars rushing floor becomes 60-70 yards 0.5 TDs (which is very likely)
Youre looking at 10 pts right there without a passing yard
He was pretty efficient against a good Colts defense, and if he can churn out 200+2 through the air...You're looking at 25 a game a right there.

I know even projecting that much passing success seems difficult, but they are going to wreck so many bad teams in the second half. Brown and Andrews will have some games. There is light at the end of this tunnel.

Wk 13-16:
Cowboys
Browns
Jags
Giants

Agree that his numbers should be escalating.

Problem is if you took him in the 1st you are not going to be around week 14.

I'm in a special case within this thread as Lamar fell to me in the 2nd, one pick after Mahomes. I took Zeke at 2 overall.

Those two picks doomed me. I'm doing better in my K/DEF league than I am in this one :lol:

This season's Lamar is named Kyler. Or probably Josh Allen.

The league I took the challenge in for this thread- I am technically still in the running to make playoffs, but it's must win from here out.
