Re: My over-valued rookie RB for 2021? Javonte Williams

If you feel Carter is no one special - not going to disagree or disrespect your opinion. But pretending to speak for the DLF community or the fantasy community as a whole with absolute comments like that doesnt end well. You do not know the thoughts and nor do you have the ability to speak on their...

Re: Unpopular Opinion: You will waste your premium 1st round pick on Kyle Pitts.

Isn't that enforcing my point though that you don't need to spend high draft capital for an elite TE? I'm not saying Pitts isn't worth it, because he's clearly one of the most talented players in this class regardless of position, but time has proven that TE doesn't always come down to who's the mo...

Re: One thing I've learned about fantasy football...

I think just two- get your guys and the 2-3 year window. The idea that it’s important to “get your guys” is based on the flawed, largely emotionally driven premise that you will feel better when you lose with “your guys” than you will when you lose with “your guys” on another roster. That’s logical...

Re: Unpopular Opinion: You will waste your premium 1st round pick on Kyle Pitts.

There is, I think, a key distinction with the names you listed. None of them were in consideration to be first round rookie picks. None of them where the top prospects in their respective classes. Guys like Ebron, Howard, Njoku, Fant and Hock (who were all highly touted prospects) still commanded h...

Re: One thing I've learned about fantasy football...

1. Don’t overpay for your guy. You don’t know as much as you think you do. Emotional maturity is understanding that you don’t win or lose any extra if you have “your guy” on your team. Be dispassionate and just take the best player. 2. Think beyond a 2-3 year window. Yeah, it’s really hard to predi...

Re: Buy Low/Sell High

Like I said, it’s fine. I just wouldn’t be surprised if that got you somebody like Dobbins or Akers. You can say it’s a win because you’re selling an asset that you think will depreciate, and that’s cool, but you’re making a case that it’s a “sell high” of Diontae rather than a “buy low.” For it to...

Re: Jermar Jefferson Pro Day

I was already down on the kid, and now we get some numbers that could be considered red flags. Pretty sure he’ll be long gone before I’d consider burning a pick on him, especially given how enamored some FFers are with him. This is how I feel with 90% of RB each year after the top ones. The only mi...

Re: Why the 2021 Rookie Class Might Be The Most Valuable in Recent Dynasty History

I'm with Sriracha, I'm more inclined to fade the vast majority of this class than go all in. Hard question to answer but had Covid not happened do you think you would have felt the same? I only ask this because it was a weird year and in order to evaluate these guys properly we have to think about ...

Re: Bengals + Chase?

Sewell, Pitts or Chase would all be phenomenal picks for Cincy and a strong argument could be made for any of them. The best case scenario for Cincy would be QBs going 1-4 and then trading down to 8 with Carolina who would be protecting themselves from getting jumped for the 5th, and then Cincy tak...

Re: Unpopular Opinion: You will waste your premium 1st round pick on Kyle Pitts.

I'm generally in the don't draft a TE early in rookie drafts camp, but outside of the top few picks this year, why not Pitts? In a non SF/2QB league, elite TE's give the biggest weekly advantage over replacement value. Says the guy displaying a team with Kelce AND Kittle in a 16 teamer lol I can sp...

In terms of dynasty:
