Wildcard Weekend, Best Bets & Full10Yards Awards

It’s the awards show!

First up though, the small matter of January Football! Tim and Lee take you through each of the 4 games and Adam drops by to give us his best bets (23:29) and recap a great season (go check out his website with great previews, http://www.tdtips.com !).
After the bets, it’s the inaugural Full10Yards awards (aka the 10s) and we have 10 (get it?) awards to give out (59:50). Some we are undecided on so will put it to the social media vote to decide the winner. Season MVP, Game of the year and the coveted Jason Garrett award.
Unfortunately Jason wasn’t available to hand the trophy out….too busy masterminding the victory vs the Seahawks….
Shout out to Jason Seely too for the introduction. Don’t forget you can all get involved with that, just like our Playoff Predictor competition where you can win an Amari Cooper Jersey!

Podcast 65 – Week 15 Games…and more games

Tim and Lee get into the festive spirit by playing some Panto-sy Football.

Before that though we take care of business as we usually do on a Friday by going through each game and Adam joins us to scour over the betting markets.

Finally, we take a deep look in to and predict who will be the 6th seed in each conference for the playoffs before we give it a bit of the old “Oh no he is isn’t!”

Deadline Day – Fantasy Style

Written by Scott Mackay (@scottfmackay) – 20th Nov 2018

Sound the klaxon!

We are approaching deadline day, the last opportunity to secure your favourite stars that will help lift you to the championship game by way of trades! Waivers still are applicable right up until the final day of the season, but we all know the major players are stashed away in other teams in your league.

Now, we get that trading can be quite difficult, especially if you are in a league where some participants have merely given up but don’t let that put you off. In the words of Del Boy, ‘He who dares Wins’, so grab your Del Boy flat cap and get wheeling and dealing.

“But who should I pick up” I hear you cry. Don’t panic, I’ve taken a look at the teams who have the more favourable games in the final weeks of the season which could see their players be the different maker in the weeks ahead.

In position one I’m choosing the Broncos, with 6 games remaining, the middle 4 games comprise of Bengals, 49ers, Browns and Raiders. That is a big chunk of winnable games and Phillip Lindsay, Emmanuel Sanders will be rubbing their hands together with glee. They are the focal point of offense for Denver and are primed to post up big numbers. Go hunt them down and add them to your team.

The Ravens go number two on the list, hear me out here. Favourable last 6 games with Raiders, Falcons, Buccs and Browns ahead, all very winnable, John Brown could well be a boom situation and be the one to earn you those vital Ws. Psssttt… if you can grab Lamar Jackson on Waivers, go do that, a dynamic running threat that if Flacco is still side-lined, could be an absolute steal.

The Giants are starting to find some kind of rhythm and you could find some value in trading for OBJ, yes he is a star but some owners could be frustrated with the lack of consistency but with a nice set of games coming up he looks ready to bounce back and some owners could be looking to let go for other options, especially if packaged with other players. I doubt anyone will give up Barkley but the right offer may trigger the accept button, if you are looking for a RB1 he’s your man.

The Steelers aren’t playing their best but they are finding the results, I would look to trade for Big Ben, Ju-Ju or Conner if you need an upgrade in these areas. These players have a lot of value but deals could be made especially if you offer up value in return.

Of course I could advise you to go for Mahomes, Gurley or Brees but you all already know these are on your list and you’d love to have them. If you can manufacture deals for them then why not, but I got a feeling these players will already be sitting in playoff teams and no fantasy owner in their right minds would trade them. Would they?

Who do you think are trade targets ahead of the thanksgiving games? get in touch with my @scottfmackay or the podcast @full10yards and let us know!

Thanks for reading and we’ll be back next week.
