Player Grid 12.21.

JMToWin is a high-stakes tournament champion (Thunderdome, Luxury Box, Game Changer, Wildcat) who is focusing this year on single-entry/three-entry max

OWS Fam ::
This is not a complete list of all the good plays on the slate.

This is, instead, a look at the player pool I’ll be fishing.

Bottom-Up Build

:: covered in-depth in the Angles Pod (it’s highly recommended that you listen to the breakdown of the roster in order to see the thinking behind it, and in order to understand what we’re talking about when we look at a “bottom-up build”

Blue Chips

:: these are my “Tier 1” plays: the plays I feel confident leaning into across different types of builds; players who have a high ceiling and a low likelihood of price-considered failure


:: these are games, offenses, situations, or scenarios I’ll be looking to build around across my rosters


:: these are players who don’t fit into the categories above — either Upside pieces who don’t have the floor to be Blue Chips (and are not being focused on within my game-focused builds) or players who may not have a strong shot at ceiling, but are worth keeping in mind from a “role” perspective

Light Blue Chips

Bucs Passing Attack

If Mike Evans were set to miss, this would be a true Blue Chip stack (“a high ceiling and a low likelihood of price-considered failure”), as you could simply play Brady // Godwin // Gronk together and know that this would be massively profitable over a large sample size. With Evans back, we have more guesswork, as the injuries on the Bucs have lined up in such a way this year that we only have two games to look at in which AB missed, and these three pass catchers played. Gronk saw eight targets apiece in those games, while Godwin saw 13 total targets and Evans saw 21 — but this target disparity is as likely to be “small sample size noise” as it is to be actionable. That said: Gronk and Evans are both averaging one touchdown per game, while Godwin is averaging 0.6 — a statistic that makes sense given the way Brady prioritizes Gronk and Evans in scoring position (eight targets inside the 10 for Evans; four in four games for Gronk; six for Godwin).

Any way you cut it, however (as explored in the writeup for this game), this is a very good spot for the Bucs’ passing attack as a whole (I’m comfortable calling it a Blue Chip spot for this passing attack); and if you can correctly isolate the individual pieces that pop in this spot, you can scoop what could end up being some of the more valuable scores on the slate. Given the way this game should play out, I would be surprised if any piece from the Bucs’ passing attack turned into a true “had to have it” piece; but given the state of the slate, and the high level of certainty we can have in this Bucs passing attack as a whole, I’ll be keeping this stack very close to my builds this week.
