ever take a dive due to the bye?
RB is the weakest position on my team, and all 3 of my rbs are on a week 9 bye, Cohen, Howard, and L. Murray. I'm very strongly considering just taking the L week 9, depending on how I do between now and then, 3-1 currently. Am I better off trading or just taking my lumps?

Cousins/Goff
Hilton
Diggs
Fuller
Ertz
Landry
Prater
Jax/Sea

Watkins
Cooper
E. Engram

You should prepare to have the best team possible entering the playoffs. Of course, you have to be in the playoffs as well.

No.

Way to far in advance to think about that. Injuries happen and you may not have any of those RBs come that week. Just play the game. Sometimes people over think fantasy football. I do it at times, looking to get that next season saving fill in player. Players and whole fantasy teams have bad games, you just never know when.

Anything can happen just try to win.

Looks like short benches? I wouldn't sacrifice my long term team to fill my lineup for one week.

But I also wouldn't tank for a waiver spot like I've seen some people on here do

6 on the bench.

I just have a hard time giving away my WRs when they have been my bread and butter this year. Truthfully, I'm hoping Fuller and cooper/landry have an awesome week and I can turn them into a RB. My whole thinking with this is fricking up an okay team to compete one week that may or may not have any bearing on my playoff chances. We're still quite a way from that, but I'm trying to make sure I'm not blindsided when week 9 rolls around

I'd cut a QB to pick someone up

You could cut a defense and QB to fill your RB spots

I'm dropping Goff after this week. Picked him up due to cousins bye.

I'll do the same with the D after this week, unless I see someone on the waivers.

I did one year. Scheduled most of my players to have the same bye week during the draft. It worked quite nicely. I lost that game, but won several more because I had an advantage due to the opponent having bye week players

re: ever take a dive due to the bye?
I'm thinking of just rolling with no defense this week because I don't feel like dropping anybody to replace Gronk this week. Would rather keep the depth. Plus most of my defensive options this week play pretty decent offenses, so they all have a chance of doing terrible and going negative anyway
