FANTASY SPORTS BOSS IN SEMIS OF EXPERTS LEAGUE

It was a nice respite for yours truly last week as my finish as the number 2 seed overall as the Experts League PPR playoffs got underway.  We have ten teams in the league and six make the postseason.  It is back to work this week however as I go into my semifinal matchup as a sizable favorite.  Right now the only decision I have to make is whether to start Julian Edelman if he returns over the struggling Calvin Johnson.  Of course Johnson has a plush matchup against the truly horrific New Orleans Saints defense but Edelman is PPR gold whenever he plays.  Right now this is how the matchup looks.

MY TEAM

QB-Drew Brees
WR-Antonio Brown
WR-Demaryuis Thomas
WR-Calvin Johnson
RB-Adrian Peterson
RB-David Johnson
TE-Jordan Reed
K-Stephen Gostowski
DEF-Houston

OPPONENT

QB-Marcus Mariota
WR-Brandon Marshall
WR-Sammy Watkins
WR-Tyler Lockett
RB-Devonta Freeman
RB-Shaun Draughan
TE-Travis Kelce
K-Adam Vinatieri
DEF-Carolina

Looking at my opponent, he launched his team when he got Freeman off waivers but he also had has big QB issues all season as he originally banked on Sam Bradford.  In between he alternated between Jameis Winston and Mariota who did enough as a tandem to get to the playoffs.  However a key here is that he picked up the scorching Blake Bortles off waivers which cold be trouble for me and ultimately I think he will correctly go with him over Mariota.  His receivers are shaky outside of Marshall who has been tremendous.  The running backs are solid but Freeman has really dropped off as the Atlanta Falcons have tanked. 

Ultimately I SHOULD win on paper and by a decent margin but again I never feel safe in ANY fantasy football matchup.  How do you think I will do?  Post below.

  1. You're site is great, but i'd be embarrassed to say i'm in a 6-team expert league...6 teams? you should just stick to dominating baseball

  2. Was typo. Meant to say six teams in playoffs. A ten team league.
