FANTASY SPORTS BOSS IN EXPERTS LEAGUE FINALS, JUST BARELY

So into the finals yours truly went in the PPR Fantasy Football Experts League but just barely as Jordan Reed and Graham Gano almost conspired to eliminate me Monday night.  Ultimately I wound up winning by just 1.5 points after going into the Carolina-Washington game up by 16.  Yes that close.  Be that as it may, I am going to try and defend last year's title with a team that has some holes and touch lineup choices going into the game.  On the surface, this is my current roster as of this typing.

QB-Drew Brees
WR-Antonio Brown
WR-Michael Crabtree
WR-Brandin Cooks
RB-Le'Veon Bell
RB-Jordan Howard
TE-Jordan Reed
K-Steven Haushka
DEF-Tennessee

BENCH

WR/RB-Ty Montgomery
WR-Cole Beasley
TE-Vernon Davis
DEF-Houston
WR-Adam Thielen
RB-Adrian Peterson
RB-Kenneth Farrow

So looking at the lineup, I am not going to use ANY of my bench players outside of maybe Montgomery,  Now how do I currently have Montgomery on the bench after his insane game that helped me win last week?  That is the dilemma as Howard and Bell are both must starts at running back and Cooks comes off a ridiculous game last week.  The choice comes down to Cooks, Crabtree, and Montgomery playing only two.  I will likely debate that the rest of the week.  Then there is tight end where I wont use Reed under any circumstances after that fiasco Monday.  I hope he sits so that I can use Davis who has been solid in his place this season.  The waiver wire is filled with shaky options like Martellus Bennette, Charles Clay, Hunter Henry, and Jermaine Gresham.  Ehhhh.

So my opponent?  He is the number 2 seed and this is what his roster looks like right now.

QB-Tyrod Taylor
WR-A.J. Green
WR-Julio Jones
WR-Julian Edelman
RB-Ezekiel Elliott
RB-Spencer Ware
TE-Cameron Brate
K-Justin Tucker
DEF-New England

He also has Michael Thomas, Alshon Jeffery, Randall Cobb at wideout, Marcus Mariota at QB, and Theo Riddick and Dion Lewis at running back.  This owner was a big waiver guy throughout the year as he added Mariota, Ware, Brate, and yes A.J. Green who was cut after his hamstring injury that seemed to originally show he would miss most or the rest of the season.  It pays to play the wire.

So what do you think my chances are?  Let me know.

  2. Looks like you should win easily. His best WR's havent played in a while and are hobbled.

    I'm going Hunter Henry over Reed in one of my leagues.
