I just grabbed Gore after Damien Williams was declared out, probably going to start him. My only other options (.5 PPR) are Chris Thompson or Carlos Hyde.

No sense using a WR in a flex position (especially, as rekrap mentioned, from the same team) when you have 2 starting RBs with good matchups. If you're dead set on Ridley then I'd prefer Monty, who I'm picking to have a great week. (Benched Fournette for him against the advice of the "experts".)

Pretty amazing "bad beat" today.
Basic 1PPR scoring
I am losing 185 to 192

And he still has Chubb left

And if I had played Kupp, we would be ahead 210 to 206 with Kupp and Chubb still going.

That was a dumb move to bench him for Hollywood.

Scaped by this week 122.8 - 122.2. Was down 20 something and had Chubb and Woods. Made me sweat until the 2 minute warning.

Exciting match against the commissioner, whom I beat in an equally exciting match last year to grab a playoff spot. He had Wilson and Olsen, I had to deal with the Barkley injury as well as underwhelming performances from Goff and Ekeler. But great games from Evans and Lockett are putting me in a good spot, down 2 with Montgomery tonight. Was lucky that I didn't have wifi access at noon yesterday, was going to switch out Waller when I saw that Andrews was cleared to play, would have cost me 12 points if I'd made the move.
