Rush Nation, I am back with another I Streamed a Stream article. And this week, the Stream was kind to me. All the pain of the last two weeks have gone away. I have finally made some valuable gains all departments, with the exception of RB and TE, where I remained in my position.
As the bye weeks are coming thick and fast, I hope I can continue to make strides. Through almost half the season, I have a QB1, a TE1, a K1, and a D/ST1. However I current hold a RB3 and a WR3. For those of you who aren’t familiar, I am comparing this to the standard 12 team league and I am looking to achieve a number 1 ranked player in each position.
As it currently stands, I am currently ranked:
QB: 10th Overall- Up 1
RB: 36th Overall- No Gain
WR: 28th Overall- Up 5
TE: 10th Overall- No Gain
K: 9th Overall- Up 1
D/ST: 4th Overall- Up 1
I am only using using players who are under 30% owned from when I look at the players for our Waiver Wire article on Monday.
I am not confident I will end up with a top 12 Running Back or Wide Receiver. However, if I can stream into the RB2, WR2 conversation, I would really be pleased with that.
I was hoping for more from Williams and Beasley but they had reasonably safe floors for me. Cousins was my outstanding pick of the week, ending up QB3 on the week.
All in all, an excellent week.
This week, I am looking to gain some positions back. Running Back seems to be the biggest challenge again this week, as will Wide Receiver. If you want to play along with me, go back to the Waiver Wire article we published on Monday.
I am also challenging any of you to a duel. Have a look at the ownership numbers on ESPN.co.uk and if you find better selections that are under 30% owned, then submit your picks and we will create a tab on the website.
My stream selections for this week are as follows:
I am worried about Tight End and Colts, but I didn’t want to risk Josh Hill in case he doesn’t go. The Colts have a safe floor but little upside.
Please go back and read the previous columns, and track the progress with me. It’s been fun so far. However, I know that it will get harder week to week, until we get to the last couple of weeks of the season. Please do also interact with us via the site or via twitter.
Please reach out to me on twitter @5yardrush. But until then Rush Nation, Keep Rushing.
