Guillotine Leagues: Week 11

I survived easily in my three remaining leagues, and ended up in far better FAAB position than the week before. In my ESPN league, the only other team with substantial FAAB got eliminated. The result: at waiver time I had 442 FAAB, and no other team had more than 5. That means that for the rest of the season, I can just get whatever player I want for $6 or less. So I picked up Chris Carson, Dalvin Cook,  Julio Jones, Tyreek Hill, and Tyler Lockett for a grand total of $30.

In my Fanball league where I had a substantial FAAB disadvantage to the top team, and was basically tied with another team, they both went on spending sprees, so I’m now basically even with one and asvantged over the others. Of course, I missed out on good waivers due to their spending sprees, so I’m feeling at a bit of a disadvantage for survival this week.

Here’s the spending report:

Austin Hooper: 153 (! Nobody else bid on him. AFAIK he is injured)
Nick Chubb: 112
Chris Carson: 101, 21
Michael Thomas: 99 (my bid – to guarantee I got him over the team with 98 FAAB)
Russell Wilson: 99
Aaron Rodgers: 88
Tyreek Hill: 85
Mike Evans: 82, 65, 47
Amari Cooper: 72, 51
Deshaun Watson: 72, 50, 31, 22
Saquon Barkley: 71
Travis Kelce: 51
DJ Moore: 51, 19
Mark Andrews: 50
DeAndre Hopkins: 39
Tyler Lockett: 33, 32, 21
Zeke Elliott: 33
Derrick Henry: 33
Davante Adams: 25
Todd Gurley: 22, 11
Dak Prescott: 22
George Kittle: 22, 15
Leonard Fournette: 22
Hunter Henry: 21
Cooper Kupp: 20
James Conner: 20
Jacob Hollister: 17
DJ Chark: 15
Odell Beckham: 14
Julian Edelman: 11
Austin Ekeler: 11

Remaining FAAB: not much. There’s one guy in one league who still has his original 1000 FAAB. I don’t know if he’s asleep at the wheel, trying to prove a point, or just adopting too extreme a version of the spend low, spend late strategy that I recommend. With only one week left of waivers, you should *not* have 1000 FAAB at this point – you should have been building your team in the last few weeks.

Here are the totals, for the remaining 42 teams:
901 – 1000: 1
801 – 900: 0
701 – 800: 0
601 – 700: 0
501 – 600: 0
401 – 500: 0
301 – 400: 2
201 – 300: 1
101 – 200: 2
0 – 100: 36

Good luck to everyone in Week 12!
