Re: Zeke Suspension

The funny (or sad) thing is that this was a dead issue. Once they decided not to prosecute most of us thought this was a closed case and it is the NFL that brought it back to life. The NFL is looking bad because they drudged it back up. I am not saying anyone should turn a blind eye to abuse, but it...

Just had a crazy draft

I am totally sucked into dynasty but my in-laws do a redraft league that I feel obligated to be part of. I did a few mocks beforehand so I could tell RBs were gonna go fast but was unprepared for how far receivers were gonna fall. 10 team, standard, 1 QB, 2 WR, 2 RB, 1 TE, 1 Flex, dst, k. I drafted ...

Re: Matt Jones a Colt

The guy had skills before, now he has skills with a huge chip on his shoulder. I think it makes for a good combination if he gets the chance. Snagged him off the wire a few days ago so the price is right. Hopefully he gets his chance.

Re: Allen Robinson

Just sent Keenan for Arob. Hope I'm not an idiot. I think he has a big qb upgrade next year and hope he returns to form.

Re: Should I drop Ware

I was just about to post the same question. I think I am going to drop him because everyone has their rosters (22 man) stacked with upside guys they would like to take a look at, and would rather not waste a slot for a guy who isn't going to play this year and whose replacement has already been draf...

Re: Keenan Allen or Gurley: POLL

Thanks all. I hate to say it but I can't pull the trigger. Young stud receivers are hard to come by in my league and I hate to give them up for an RB. I sent the trade offer then canceled it because my gut was screaming don't to it. Gonna go with the gut for now.

Keenan Allen or Gurley: POLL

Team in sig. Zeke might be suspended and McCoy is getting long in the tooth so I might need to shore up my RB position. I have receiver bias so I am loath to make this offer but I think with my team it just makes sense. Brandon Marshall is my WR 6 so I can plug him in to KA's spot if I need to. Thou...

Re: The Seachickens Backfield

I'm holding Rawls. I think Lacy tanks and he will be lead dog. His value is in the toilet now so you might as will sit tight. Gonna sell during the season if his value goes up and I get a decent offer.

Re: Best Dynasty Decision You've Ever Made?

After drafting Trich season 1 of our league I flipped him for a first and second in season 2. Took that first and second and bought Nuk so in the end it was Trich for Nuk straight up. I also traded Carr, John Brown, Philip Dorsett, Jordan Reed and a future first for Zeke and Rivers about a year ago.

Re: Is it getting harder to trade these days?

My league is on Yahoo which locks teams during the offseason and fires back up right around the NFL draft. Most guys in our league want a break so it works out, but about a month before the league re-activates we all start thinking about moves we want to make. The net result is a flurry of trades fo...

Re: Should I cash out on Watkins

I gave Alshon and Ty Montgomery for Sammy about a week before the NFL draft if that helps.

Re: 2017 Bold Predictions

1) The Browns make it to the playoffs as a wildcard with Oz at the helm and win 1 playoff game. 2) Alshon has a great year with Phi but Torry struggles and is cut at the end of the year. The iggles resign Alshon and pick up FA Sammy Watkins to have the most fearsome duo in the league. 3) Martavis Br...

Re: Sammy vs Alshon

Sent Alshon and Montgomery for Watkins about a month ago. I think the risks are about the same but Sammy's youth gives a higher upside potential long term. There is a forum thread somewhere that talk a little about his foot surgery and I think he will be healthier long term.

Re: Doug Baldwin fantasy value in picks

Andrew, a good way to see how a player correlates to draft picks is to use ADP data. Find out where your player is then compare it to the nearest draft pick. It's not foolproof but gives you a good ballpark as to player values while you are adjusting to dynasty.
