Yes, I purposefully don’t include FAB amounts or percentages… WHY?

It’s always relative, as if you lost your RB1 to injury and there is a clear backup, you’re going to be more aggressive

Aggressiveness also varies by league, and additionally, if I said 60% or $40, that’s relative too because the percent might be way off depending on how much FAB budget you have left, and the dollars might be too much of your budget to leave enough wiggle room the rest of the way.

Streaming QB and TE are grouped together— their ranking might change slightly once projections/ranks run.

“I Tried to Tell Ya” are players mentioned several times, with not much more to add, and ranked ahead of everyone else, unless specified (injury-related, etc)

WORRY REPORT

More DUCKS (1-5) = More Concern (woo-hoo!)

Egg = 1/2… or about to birth a new concern duck

QUARTERBACK

Patrick Mahomes, KC 🦆 — Mahomes has already thrown more interceptions than all of last year, including the playoffs and Super Bowl (nine).
