Thursday Night Observations
I had Russell Wilson in at quarterback in a league that is *not yet* drawing dead, but as I was setting my lineup last night, I thought, “maybe I should check Erickson’s Value Meter, just in case I’m way off on this.” (FantasyPros is dead to me after last week.)
But then I remembered my vow never to check anyone else’s rankings ever again and just to make my own mistakes. So I did what I did not want to do and that was bother to research the decision.
I looked up the Chiefs defense which was seventh against QBs, and the Cardinals’ (facing my other QB, Matthew Stafford) which is 27th. I also figured out the Vegas implied totals which had the Broncos around 19 and the Rams around 27.
Stafford has only five TD passes this year, while Wilson had 11 coming into this week, but the yardage was closer, and Cooper Kupp is back. So Stafford it was. (I also opted to sit C.J. Stroud home against the Saints.)
While I was heading to sleep last night (Portugal time), I thought, “This was a mistake, I shouldn’t switch at the last minute.” But then I thought, “Well, in that case, it’s my mistake,” and fell asleep.
