  1. Crowell for a 9th is a better value than Coleman for a 10th
  2. As far as biggest impact this season - I'd have to go with one of the RBs, and while i have flip flopped a little bit, I do think Fournette is in the spot to most likely be the top producer this year. If we are talking long term dynasty league production, I shy away from these RBs and am more inclined to go with one of the WRs - Williams may take a little longer to ascend to being the #1 guy on his team, but his measurables are right - only concern is Rivers age and how many more years does he have left, and once he goes who will be throwing the ball to Williams. Davis has a much easier path to being the #1 on his team with a young gunslinger at QB, but also has questions. I'm flipping on these guys as to who I think is probably th best dynasty option, and I lean them over the RBs due to the relative short life span of most RBs in the NFL.
  3. In my one IDP PPR Dynasty I have the 5th pick - pretty sure Corey Davis goes in the top 4, so I'm pretty much set on taking which of the 4 RBs falls to me, and being fine with that. Only wrinkle, and why I may consider Williams, is that I am ok at RB (ok, not great) but fairly weak at WR. Just not sure I can justify Williams with the pick
  4. With bidding, at a minimum you would have to have a set time as to when the waivers would run to award players to the high bidders, or have all bids be out in the open and have set rules as to how long from the time a bid is placed until a player is awarded if no one bids higher. For most sites, with bidding, the waiver priority has no meaning, as the player is awarded to the high bidder. It is generally there as a default necessity of setting up a waiver window.
  5. Definitely take the trade.
  6. Could always just go to an All Play format - so, if a 12 team league, top scoring team for the week goes 11-0, second scoring team goes 10-1 and so on. Rewards high scoring and consistent teams but essentially takes the head to head component out of the equation, though in a sense everyone is your head to head opponent each week.
  7. There is nothing in this universe powerful enough to groom Whomper
  8. Does this mean I need to go put my pitchfork down?
  9. League I was in did something similar to this when expanding from 10 to 12 teams. Each of the initial 10 teams got to protect 2 players. Expansion teams picked as describer above - Team A, then B for two, etc. As an original team, if one of your players was taken by the expansion teams, you got to protect another player from your roster. If a second player was taken, you protected 2 more. That league also did a lottery for the bottom 3 teams to determine the draft order for the top 3 picks (picks 4-10 were based on finish the previous season, top 3 picks were lottery for the bottom 3 teams). I don't recall what we as a league ended up doing off the top of my head, but the two proposals on the table were either to slot the expansion teams into the 4th and 5th picks (whomever picked first in expansion picked 5th in regular draft) and still did the lottery for the top 3, then the other teams were slotted in 6-12 based on finish, or if we added the expansion teams to the lottery with the same odds as the 3rd to last team (i.e, we put the last place teams name in the hat 5 times, the 2nd to last in 3 times, and the other 3 teams in one time and drew for draft order) Going from 8 to 10, you may be able to get away with having the original teams protect 3 players each (theoretically top 24 players) but then I would give the top 2 picks in the draft to the expansion teams to help even it out a bit. No matter what there is no true "fair" way to do it.
  10. If you drafted RB early and hit i.e David Johnson, or drafted WR early and hit i.e Julio or Odell, you will use that to validate your preconceived notion or RB or WR early is better. If you drafted Gurley early or a Robinson or even a Deandre Hopkins early, you will use that to invalidate your previous notion and change your mind because clearly RB first sucks or WR first sucks because it didn't work. No matter what position it is you take early, it comes down to hitting on the individual player that performs close to expectation and escapes injury while also finding a couple players later on in the draft that perform above expectation.
  11. I like the way that the FFPC and several other of the large "big money" leagues do their playoff seedings First seed is best record (total points scored is first tiebreaker) The second seed goes to the highest scoring team remaining 3rd seed goes to the best record of the teams not the 1st or 2nd seed 4th seed is highest scoring team of those not the 1 to 3 seed. Can work it down from there if you have more than 4 playoff spots, but what this does is keeps the fun of a weekly head to head format and rewards those teams that do well in that, but also does not punish those teams that scored more throughout the season, but had bad luck in the scheduling. As a matter of personal preference I generally do not like having divisions.
  12. Only problem with this is that a lot of other teams have already had the benefit of playing him with an incomplete lineup - to now go in and start filling in his lineup is not fair to his remaining opponents. While it sucks, it is actually more fair to the league to leave it be, let everyone get their shot as was scheduled, and as others have noted, not invite him back for next season.
