Jacobs won’t score 30 every week now, and Akers will also have a few good games. The one thing that made me accept that trade offer without hesitation was that I expect Jacobs to have a much safer floor. He has nobody posing a serious threat to his production, while Sean McVay can decide any time that it will be the Darrell Henderson show in any given week. It’s a lot harder to determine when to start Akers, and when to bench him. Whereas you can throw Jacobs in your lineup in pretty much any week other than his BYE.
As for my week - it wasn’t my best one.
SFLEX dynasty was an easy win. My dynamic QB duo of Patrick Mahomes and Justin Herbert performed within expectation, and Ekeler went through the roof. Best news was that the #1 team in the league lost in a blowout match vs the guy who had both Goff and Hockenson in his lineup. So my opponent from last year’s final is now 3-1, just like me.
In my 1QB dynasty, TNF ruined my week. I’m 1-3 there now. My RB corps is killing me, but that’s not exactly a surprise, seeing that it consists of Travis Etienne, Nyheim Hines, JD McKissic and Kenny Gainwell. My WR room (best in the league) of Chase, Waddle and Pittman can’t make up for it. I’m still glad I drafted George Pickens over any of the secondary rookie RBs, after I got ninja’d on Dameon Pierce in the draft. I will have two 1sts and two 2nds next year, with my own 1st likely being an early one. That should allow me to end my RB woes. Next year, my team will be in business.
In the South Beach league, I’m 2-2 now, and still can’t believe how I could lose weeks 1 and 2.
In the US-EU league, I lost against an opponent who started Hockenson on TE, nuff said. 2-2 there now, and this week, I’m facing the combo of Saquon, Kupp and Kelce. My boys better bring their A game.
Finally, the SFLEX tournament… let’s not talk about that one, okay? 1-3 there, after being too chicken to start Dalton + Olave. Went for Trubisky + Curtis Samuel instead, and boy, did that backfire. Losing both QBs in an SFLEX league left my team beyond repair. I’ll still try my best until week 13, but that tournament is a write-off.
