Re: Clyde Edwards-Helaire is your new 1.01

It's typical coach speak. Coach speak is the biggest enemy of a fantasy owner. Williams is done. There was an interesting post on reddit that made me delve into the possible stats for CEH. During his time with the Chiefs, Andy Reid has held a pretty firm 19-20 touches for his starting RBs per game ...

Re: Had to share this trade bait posting for a laugh

If I had a "stud" QB, I might try to make a play for one of his QBs and Boyd...

Or if I had Darren Waller, I'd try for Boyd straight up.

Everyone has a different definition of what a stud is. Instead of laughing, maybe you should be looking to see if you can make something happen?

Re: fantasy impact of coronavirus

There's not going to be a season guys. There's too much toothpaste out of the tube at this point unless a vaccine is approved by October. Yeah, I'm inclined to believe this myself. There's too many people not taking it seriously. It's been almost entirely eradicated and has been for months where I ...

Re: Clyde Edwards-Helaire is your new 1.01

I know it's been talked about before, but Burrow himself called him the "best athlete he's played with" with literally zero hesitation. Considering the other players on that list, it's a patently absurd claim - and yet, Burrow, who is clearly of level head and extremely sound football mind and IQ, ...

Re: Miles Sanders vs Jonathan Taylor

When two players are close I always prefer the known quantity over the unknown. I'll take Sanders rather easily in the 0.5 ppr format.

I think everyone is a little too high on JT, and a little too low on Sanders.

Re: Steve Sims JR

Oof, I disagree. I watched Haskins make throws I considered to be next level anticipatory throws in a tight window at Ohio State. It was so rare that I had to go back several years to find another such example. I think his short game is impressive. The deep ball is another story. What makes you dis...

Re: Steve Sims JR

That said, I believe with nearly 100% certainty that Haskins is a complete bust. I expect Allen to be the qb at some point when Haskins channels his inner Nathan Peterman Oof, I disagree.

Re: Miles v. CEH v. JT (with poll)

I wouldn't be shocked at any of these results. I'm a probability man myself, and probability lies in what is known vs unknown. We know Miles Sanders can play and we know he has value. CEH doesn't have that, but he does have immediate opportunity, and JT doesn't have either. So: Sanders, CEH, JT. If ...

When I log on and get alerts that all point to the same thread, that's usually a sign that it needs to be locked up. This has gone off the rails.

Re: For those who find sustained success in leagues

Is that superflex though? Jamaal Williams over Watson? No I said above. This is 1QB. Do you remember the hype that Williams had going to Green Bay with no competition? Everybody was buying him on opportunity alone. My point is you should be judging it more based on talent and profile rather than th...

Re: For those who find sustained success in leagues

I also try not to consolidate, usually the opposite. If I trade away a player, I try to get two in return. I used to consolidate to get the guy I wanted, but if that didn't pan out it would set my team back a full season. Now if I trade away 2 players or picks, I try to get 2 or 3 back in return. D...

Re: For those who find sustained success in leagues

It's mostly a combo of both. I studied the percentages of rookie players who retain value over their careers and found that the top 6 are usually around 66% successful, the second 6 are around 30-40%, 2nd round 10-20%, third round 5-10%, and the 4th round is ~1-5%. Because I know the drop offs are s...

Re: DLF Etiquette

Nice post! I love the thought and detail you put into these suggestions.

I used to list my roster in my sig but every time I made a trade I had to update it and that got annoying, so I removed it.

Re: How often do you accept a first offer?

I accept if it's fair and it improved my team. In only 2 instances ever I countered with more on my end because what they were asking from me was too low. I'm a commissioner, I don't want to see that stuff. Someone said 3%. That's probably about right. My pet peeve is when I send a great offer and t...
