Re: Lynch's value in picks

I wouldn't do that. We can get into the "what is his value in picks thing," but the main reason I wouldn't do it is because you have a good team and you should focus on winning another title. I understand that people often feel the need to sell on a guy before his value drops, but I don't think that...

Re: Trading Out Of The Rookie Draft, Every Year, & On Purpos

And this of course is to say nothing of the hindsight required to say "you could just trade your 1st, let someone else draft Calvin, and then buy him back the year before he blows up!" If you truly think Calvin's 2nd and 3rd year were so bad (as you describe) it doesn't really make sense to think th...

Re: Trading Out Of The Rookie Draft, Every Year, & On Purpos

If you search Calvin Johnson in 2010 on these very forums, he's being bought and sold for much less than a 1st rounder. Don't be so naive. Calvin was the 18th overall play drafted according to MFL ADP data from 2010. That was good for the #5 WR overall. I very much doubt you could have traded a 1st...

Re: Trading Out Of The Rookie Draft, Every Year, & On Purpos

This strategy sounds nice, "trading away risky rookies for proven studs," but I'm not convinced it's a good idea in most leagues. Whether or not this is a good idea depends entirely on what you can get for your draft picks. Would I trade 1.09 for DeMarco Murray? Sure I would. Would I trade 1.10 for ...

Re: MJD

If I couldn't get a top-half 2nd round pick, I'd hold on to him, personally.

Re: Why is Brandon Marshall ranked so low?

It's a combination of two things that have been discussed in this thread - his age and the fact that it's a mock draft. In mock drafts, I think people tend to go younger/sexier because they're not worried about setting that lineup in Week 1 as much. That said, he's right on the cusp of beginning to ...

Re: DLF Podcast

I'm a little surprised to read some of the comments here, especially griping about how people say "150," :lol: . Jeez. I'm not aware of more than a couple of other dynasty-centered podcasts, but of the ones I do know, DLF is easily the best. I think the chemistry of te hosts is fine, and I don't eve...

Re: Ryan Mallett: Is there a pulse?

I really don't think Mallet has shown anything that would lead a team to trade for him with the idea of slotting him in as a starter right away. He's been very inconsistent. I also don't think the Patriots are interested in leaving themselves without a legitimate backup quarterback for 2013. Near 0%...

Re: Jake Ballard

Boyce and Dobson are going to be on a very steep learning curve. Vereen will get a lot of work, but not much more than he and Woodhead combined for last year. Ballard has shown he can produce when healthy, and he's had a year to learn the Pats' offense. It's possible Ballard ends up being the best ...

Re: Jake Ballard

I think it's a mistake to assume that if Hernandez is out/gone, that Ballard just steps into the same role in the same offense. The offense will reflect the personnel. If you don't have the best TE duo in the league anymore, then you stop running a lot of two-TE sets. Ballard will be one piece to th...

I'd try flipping RGIII for a guy like Anquan Boldin.

Re: Would you Get Peyton if the was your team?

I think Manning could be a pretty decent upgrade over Luck in 2013, but now so much that it's worth a 1st round pick. 2nd? Sure. Not a 1st.

Re: Wayne for RG3, done deal

If I'm a QB needy team in that league, as far as I'm concerned, the market has just been set very, very low. There's no way I could tolerate giving like a top 15 WR for RGIII when he just went for a 34 year old Reggie Wayne. I'd wait a bit, let it become clear that RGIII is going to come back and be...
