Looks really good. I avoided Wentz in all my leagues because I simply don't trust his health, but Rodgers is a great QB2. Sanders will likely play limited snaps early in the year too but once he is healthy you have 2 top 10 RBs imo.

I know nothing about fantasy ... but looks good.  In the past... years ago it seemed like the least knowledgeable people did pretty well... I don’t mean to say your not knowledgeable, I mean it seems to me people over think fantasy sports too much and your better off many times just freestyling.  Good luck!

that sounds surprising.... why do think that?  (Again i know little about fantasy sports).... and I’d assume Fant would have better stats.  I can see him putting up at least 55rec, 725-750yds, and 4-6 TD.  I think Herndon has some upside but not that much and while the Jets offense lacks weapons don’t think he’ll see huge statistical growth off last year.

I’m hoping people are overthinking the Gronk situation. A year off hasn’t hurt players that much recently. Plus, Gronk wasn’t his usual Gronk self in 2018 because he was getting double and triple teamed left and right. Pats WR cores in 2018 and 2019 were probably Bottom 3 in the NFL. 
 

If they are right about Gronk, hopefully Hockenson has a breakout year.

I played a lot in years past and have tried all sorts of strategies.  You need skill and luck but most of all you need to be able to admit you made a mistake.  The more flexible you are the greater your chances to make smart moves when you need.  I always try to hold 2-3 players I could drop and not think twice about it.  Rotating different players every week.  Eventually when you find the gems you stop rotating and at the end of the season you have a deep squad.  Still does not mean you will win but your chances are a lot higher. 

In 2018 I had a killer team and had a 1st round bye.  I did not pay attention to the points in week 1 of the playoffs much but Derick Henry was on the wire.  After he went of I wanted to grab him but he did not do much before that week so I decided just to role with my team and not use my #1 waiver position.  The guy I went up against picked him up and I took 3rd place in the league even though I would have beaten everyone in the final week by a large margin.  Cost me close to $500.

Who’s the better waiver add? Hines or Malcolm Brown??

I'm wondering the same. I feel like Hines is better but Taylor is going to take over at some point.
