Depends a bit on your league habits. I also love to stream defenses, and rarely spend any FAAB$ on them. But then, neither does any other manager.
The only exception is when the playoffs draw closer, and I want to make sure to secure a team with a good schedule in weeks 15-17.
A general advice: don’t hesitate to spend big $$$ early in the season. The further the season progresses, the less players emerge that are “must-adds”. I have no problem spending well over 50% of my FAAB budget in weeks 1-3.
That can be avoided by stashing key handcuffs before the starter gets injured. Also, handcuffs rarely match the starter’s production. I have seen many managers spending all their remaining FAAB$ on a handcuff, only to find out he’s hardly startable.
Zak did not listen at all and still spent for Goedert. His stealing ways continue from draft to comment to waivers. He could have saved his money, I would have signed him and offered him Ertz in trade, which I planned to do. lol
He reminds me of TBBT’s Sheldon Cooper, only even more annoying. Knows everything in theory (or at least thinks he does), but often falls flat in practice. Especially when it involves interacting with other human beings in a civilized manner, or being part of a group.
His ego longs for the big stage. That he still chose this rather small-ish forum is probably owed to the fact that it’s largely unmoderated. I can only guess that he overstayed his welcome in other forums with a shorter moderation leash. Community managers usually don’t like keeping toxic elements around. Their trolling tends to bring out the worst in other people, and I’m afraid we are all guilty of having stepped into that trap to some extent.
Since his attitude makes it impossible to have a civilized discourse with him, I decided to ignore him.
