Lol! Well at this stage I can be alright with the Vikes players (Cook and Jefferson) racking up fantasy points for me while continuing to be in the running for the Trevor Lawrence sweepstakes. That was a very Vikingesque final drive.
did you have Jefferson active any of the first 3 games?
I drafted him very late, and have had him on my bench. Wich I had him active this last week. I was dissapointed with how they were using him weeks 1 and 2, and then damn, he exploded week 3!
I started him in week 2, and of course sat him in week 3 for his coming out party. That's how I roll..... I also sat Aaron Jones in week 2 when he went off for 50+ fantasy points. Why would I sit Aaron Jones? Because I own Davin and Myles Sanders as my other 2 backs..... and it's always easiest to bench a Packer than the other two. I suppose the real question should be why do I even own a Packer? I own him just so I can bench him and say "Now sit down and shut up! You're not playing today!"
I like your I try hard to not be a homer and load my team with vikings, yet I somehow always still do. I picked 3rd this year, and I’m not gonna lie, I was VERY tempted to take Dalvin (all the pros I read had him at 5 through 8). I bit the bullet and took Ezekiel Elliot....then I took Theilen next at 22 overall. Also a little early, but I was comfortable with that.
I absolutely HATE the Seahawks — the non conference nemesis. But both Russel Wilson and Carsen were available later than they should have been, so I took both, played them, and been killing it. I’m 3-0 so far with no plans to sit Wilson. Carsen May be hurt so I may have to sit him...but yeah, I get it.
I took Bailey 12 round and got Jefferson 13th round. I always take a Viking kicker. Id been too scared to start Jefferson after he got a whopping 6 looks in 2 games. Now I regret it, and may have to play him over Theilen at some point. We’ll see.
I wouldn’t hate on you for playing Jones, but you are pretty set at RB either way. FF makes watching football so much more fun.
