    If teams is really in that bad shape you should waive the fee for the team this year. However, if he wants to trade any assets that affect next years draft then fees are due up front for that year. I find it mind boggling that in an 8 team 3 keeper league that any team would be that bad. Only 24 people are being kept (at most), any team owner can overcome that. Personally I'd find someone who doesn't flinch at $20, cause really? $20? Waste that on 2 beers at a bar, stay in and watch Netflix one night.

    I'm willing to take a gamble in the 4th round. He is a tier-one talent. I'd rather take the chance that he doesn't get hurt than hoping that another player with less talent ascends.

    And that's that. I let everyone in the league ( besides those 2 guys) vote if the draft order should be re picked, and they voted no. Then I asked the late joining manager of the spot 5 team if he would still play if I gave him the number 1 spot and gave his other co manager the boot, and he said no. So, I gave them both the boot. I got told I was on some "bitch manure" and that was the end of it. It only took 2 hrs and we have 2 new members that agreed on flipping a coin for pick #1 and pick #5. Thanks for all the input guys, it's much appreciated and I can rest a little easier now!

    Tell them they can either figure it out themselves or you will just find another owner to take team 1 and they can either co-manage team 5 per the original agreement or both get bent. People making a stink on something like this in year 1 aren't worth keeping around and they definitely aren't worth capitulating to.

    Hmmm...I saw something completely different. Montgomery was fairly effective in a few games as a RB, mostly against inferior defenses (Seattle being about the lone exception) until the novelty wore off and teams had tape on him. The Packers could just about run anyone at RB and have some success every now and then given their prolific passing attack being so superior. After a few games Montgomery pretty much sucked as a RB and most likely why GB drafted 3 rookies and got 2 more from the UDFA. Any NFL team trying to copy anything from the Packers would be wise to figure out where they could get an Aaron Rodgers from, not a Ty Montgomery.

    Barnidge could be a nice addition to a team since he is a capable blocker and receiver. But fantasywise, a tight end who projects to 50 receptions, 500 yards, and 5 touchdowns isn't roster worthy. Personally, I think he should consider joining the upcoming Star Trek: Discovery tv series as a Cardassian.

    The NFL Network would be smart to hire Clayton. Nerdy football fans are one of the fastest growing segments of the NFL fan base and Clayton is person with who they can identify. And advertisers love nerds because they have a lot of disposable income.

    The Packers offense did not look good at the start of last year. Rodgers completed only 56% of his passes in the first 4 games of the season. As soon as the Packers started using Montgomery as a running back, their offense did far better. The difference was night and day. Montgomery averaged 5.9 yards per carry including 7.0 yards per carry on first down. But the effect he had was much greater than just his rushing and receiving stats. Defenses had a hard time adjusting when Montgomery went in motion and became a wide receiver. The entire Packers offense played much better when he was on the field. From the 5th game onward, Rodgers didn't have a game where he completed less than 60% of his passes. The NFL is a league of copycats. If something is effective, teams will be sure to copy it. Tyreek Hill started getting snaps in the backfield starting in week 16 of last year and was very effective. Alvin Kamara has been working with the Saints' wide receivers group. Christian McCaffrey was the 8th pick in the draft. Are all of these players plus a bunch of others going to be used like Ty Montgomery? From the 5th game onward, Montgomery scored 140.5 fantasy points in PPR. That point total would put him at 15th overall for running backs during that span. Had he not had problems with sickle cell trait, his point total could have been much higher. The press hasn't been talking about teams using this strategy much. My guess is that a lot of teams are going to try the strategy but are keeping it a secret in order to take teams by surprise. Teams might even wait until the regular season to begin using this strategy. Personally, I think this is going to be more effective and long lasting than the Wildcat. The Wildcat had a quarterback as a bad wide receiver and a running back as a quarterback who couldn't throw well. It didn't really add much complexity. In fact, it took away complexity since it was pretty much known that the running back was going to run. Defenses adjusted quickly and the Wildcat was a short-lived phenomenon. If a player can legitimately play both running back and wide receiver, the Ty Montgomery strategy adds a complexity that isn't gimmicky. Modern NFL offenses are all about complexity. I think this strategy will stay. Fantasywise, the question is if any teams will use this strategy as much as the Packers did last year. If so, the effect on fantasy could be huge.

    I'm wrong on this point. Pro Football Focus gave a rating of 86.2 to Marshawn in 2015. That was second best in the NFL. In other words, they said that he was awesome but only averaged 3.8 ypc because his offensive line was atrocious. Knowing that he was still playing at a high level in 2015 makes me far less concerned that he won't return at a high level. He was banged up in 2015 but he had only missed one game in the previous 5 seasons. That is as durable as possible for a running back. Marshawn is going to the best situation conceivable. He has little competition and will be playing behind a great offensive line on a team that should be playing with a lead and scoring a ton. Some have guessed that they'll limit his carries to keep him healthy. I don't think that is possible with Marshawn. He thinks of himself as a warrior and would create a lot of drama if his carries were limited. He might have even demanded as a condition to signing that they guarantee him a heavy workload. His adp is 39.40. I'm buying.

    Take control of the situation now. If they're fighting over that, the season will be a nightmare. You're the commish, tell them there will be a coin toss and if they don't like it they can take their circus elsewhere. Oh...and welcome to the huddle.

    People said the same things about Cordarrelle Patterson. He played 40% of snaps his rookie year and managed to get 9 touchdowns (4 receiving, 3 rushing, 2 return). Patterson ended up with an MFL adp of 40 in his sophomore year. People talked about his immense natural talents and how offensive guru Norv Turner was going to use Patterson in a million different ways to get the ball in his hands. History has not been kind to players who aren't traditional receivers but are labeled "playmakers". They might take the league by surprise one year but have trouble maintaining a high level when teams game plan for them. I'll still likely be drafting him because of his high ceiling but I'm not at all confident about the pick.

    A couple of lessons I have learned from setting up a bunch of 2017 leagues: 1. All players begin as Unlocked. This means they can be picked up immediately, ad hoc, with no waiver run. You'll want to run a locking event immediately 2. There is a 4 round limit on waivers by default. Thing is, they hide this setting in Waivers setup and I know most BOTH leagues run BB waivers instead: Go into General Add/Drop setup and choose Always via Waivers Requests ADD/DROP AND WAIVERS SETUP General Add/Drop Setup <--------------------------------------- Here Transaction Calendar Setup Waivers/Free Agents Setup Waiver Request Setup Custom Waiver Order What Type Of Add/Drop System Does Your League Use? Always First Come/First Serve Always Via Waiver Requests Waiver Requests For Locked Players, First Come/First Serve For Rest Always Via Blind Bid Requests Blind Bid Requests For Locked Players, First Come/First Serve For Rest None Of The Above Hint: Select None of the Above if you want the commissioner to make all the moves or you play in a draft-only league. Then go into Waiver Request setup ADD/DROP AND WAIVERS SETUP General Add/Drop Setup Transaction Calendar Setup Waivers/Free Agents Setup Waiver Request Setup <-------------------------------- Here Custom Waiver Order Change the rounds (top of page) to 8 (maximum available) Maximum Number of Rounds for each Weekly Waiver Request Window: 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 Hint: See our Help Center for details on what the term "Waiver Round" means. Then go BACK into General Add/Drop Setup and change it to Blind Bid Waivers. ADD/DROP AND WAIVERS SETUP General Add/Drop Setup <--------------------------------------- Here Transaction Calendar Setup Waivers/Free Agents Setup Waiver Request Setup Custom Waiver Order You'll see that Waivers Request Setup has been replaced by Blind Bid Waivers Setup, which doesn't have the Rounds option ADD/DROP AND WAIVERS SETUP General Add/Drop Setup Transaction Calendar Setup Waivers/Free Agents Setup Blind Bid Waiver Setup <------------------------------ Changed! Custom Waiver Order The good news is changing back and forth like this will NOT erase any existing bids. Tested and confirmed, so if you have owners that have put in some bids and hit this limit, you are safe to extend it to 8. I have a ticket open to see about increasing this, how stupid they choose such a low maximum. 3. Set it so that dropped players lock immediately - default is that they don't. Locked doesn't mean you can't put in a bid, it means they can't be picked up via FCFS and are only up for the next waiver run. Dropped Players Are Locked Until: Players are not locked when dropped. They can be immediately picked up (subject to league's waiver rules) 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 day(s) later the following Sun Mon Tue Wed Thu Fri Sat at Midnight 1 a.m. 2 a.m. 3 a.m. 4 a.m. 5 a.m. 6 a.m. 7 a.m. 8 a.m. 9 a.m. 10 a.m. 11 a.m. Noon 1 p.m. 2 p.m. 3 p.m. 4 p.m. 5 p.m. 6 p.m. 7 p.m. 8 p.m. 9 p.m. 10 p.m. 11 p.m. ET The first waivers run after 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 days 4. The Add/Drop UI is different. You can only drop one guy at a time using this - horrible. You can cheat and use the IR or the Taxi function to do mass drops, it has the old radial button system to select all appropriate. I think that's it, but I'll add more as i think about them.

    As I’m sure you will all have seen, Scott Ryan (Irish) is taking a step back from fantasy football this year. He has been highly active in many leagues here on The Huddle, even acting as commissioner in several leagues each year, and has always been a vocal and visible presence on the boards. I just wanted to offer three cheers for Scott and say that the game will not be the same without him! He did the work of ten people, leading countless leagues for years, and I’m sure a lot of our fellow Huddlers will want to join me in thanking him for all of the hard work he has put into organising this game that we love. Finding people to step into his shoes will not be easy! Thank you for all of your efforts, Scott, and good luck with whatever you go onto next!

    the general pattern seems to confirm what i would expect, which is that WRs are safer picks floor-wise that there's not any huge benefit ceiling-wise to either position

    I'd rather have the pick then either of them. Honestly think its a good move. Hooker is going to be very boom or bust with his play style and I've already stated I don't think any of the QBs were 1st round worthy. Defense is still deep at the moment in this draft, so you can use other picks now to address needs while you've already added on picks for next year when the QB class improves.

    The $385,000 weight clause in Eddie Lacy's contract with the Seattle Seahawks is based on him hitting specific benchmarks on seven separate occasions, a league source tells ESPN's Field Yates. For each weigh-in that Lacy reaches his target number, he can make $55,000. The numbers are 255 pounds in May; 250 pounds in June and August; and 245 pounds in September, October, November and December. Can you believe this lol ...
