    Heard a bit from Bruce Arians today on Sirius. He's considering keeping a third QB separate from the rest of the team in case the other two QBs test positive for COVID and have to sit out for a couple of weeks. Of course, viewing this through the lenses of a fantasy owner, this made me think about handcuffing key positions on rosters. On a larger scale, this could be a real problem for an NFL team if several players test positive and have to miss a couple of weeks. A few years ago, the new concussion protocols started costing players time unexpectedly. This year could be a similar animal. Players may have to sit unexpectedly if they test positive, and large numbers could be affected. Until now, I haven't been a big proponent of IR in fantasy leagues. This situation, however, may change my opinion. Question to huddlers here....have you thought about this for your leagues and if so made any plans to account for COVID?

    This is pure garbage. Stick to facts or don't post. It's still at least 10x as deadly as the flu. Have you been paying attention to the news - this is nothing like "any other respiratory illness." There is zero data to support that flying is more risky than close personal contact. When someone you care about catches this, come back and tell me how you feel.

    People need an escape from life's troubles and tribulations. When social issues start to become more and more a focal point, it's no longer an escape and just another source of consternation.

    It's mind-boggling that anyone would think that "Redskins" is okay to have for a name. Could you imagine if there was a team called the Blackskins and they had a logo of an African tribesman with a spear? The real debate should be whether Indians, Chiefs, and Braves is okay. And if the consensus of Native Americans find those offensive, then they should be done away with as well. However, my guess is that most Native Americans are fine with Indians, Chiefs, and Braves as team names.

    What a kick in the F'in nuts. Here is a guy who has true skin in the game. He isnt a keyboard warrior wetting himself to show how anti racist he is. Hes a guy that donated millions of dollars to his impoverished community , many of which are black , and hes getting dragged through the mud royally because he felt the kneeling was disrespectful to the flag even though he agreed with the reason. Tons of NFL players on twitter blasting him even though most of them probably haven't done a fraction of the charitable work this guy has done. A shame to watch a good man get swallowed up in an internet shark tank

    So if I am understanding right, the taxi squad is only a year one thing? You do not have a taxi squad for future years? Basically this first year you get to keep 3 players (1 per position) plus your 4 rookies if you don't activate them, but then there is no taxi squad going forward? As for Burrows or CEH/Taylor/Dobbins, that completely depends on how your main draft goes, as with only 3 keepers (plus the taxi squad), you have to take into consideration the odds of any player you taking being a viable keeper option after year one for you, especially considering your rule of only one per position. So if you have Lamar Jackson for example, there is little chance that Burrows or any other rookie QB will be a keeper option for you. As for the rookie backs, again, it depends on who you end up with out of the draft, though as RBs tend to have much shorter careers in terms of elite fantasy relevance, I'd say there is a higher chance that one of the rookie RBs this year is a viable keeper option for you after year two.

    There was a nasty respiratory thing going around that wasn't coronavirus - my wife had that, said it felt like someone sitting on her chest for about 4 days and took a couple weeks to recover - 4 months later and she still can not handle the taste of anything sweet - it tastes metallic to her - as she says, it's a great diet tool. Anyway, when my oldest son got sick a couple weeks back, she got the antibody test (he got the swab), both were negative thankfully.

    While we are experiencing a second, anticipated bump, the mortality rate will likely decline. But it is still in the 1-2% range of symptomatic individuals. The problem we have is we're testing asymptomatics. We have no comparable data for that -- we don't test asymptomatics for the flu. So we don't know what an asymptomatic positive means. In reality, they are probably having mild unrecognized sx such as fatigue, muscle aches, reduced stamina but don't appreciate it. The virus will likely follow the path of prior coronaviruses and fade out over the course of the year. The best way to control it is to test everybody and quarantine the positives until it dies out. The real issue is that it's a CDC reportable disease. So, if you test positive you have to quarantine. The fix for that in people with little to no symptoms is don't test. For business owners, and other true essentials (who need to work to keep their business afloat) it's in their best interest to avoid that swab. This goes for athletes as well. From a social moral standpoint they should test. But from a business standpoint, it's not in their best interest. My guess is they'll avoid testing unless someone has severe sx and if they do test, they'll try to keep it quiet and claim injury. To go back to the OP, in our dynasty league I'm not adding additional IR spots. I don't expect to lose many players, if any, to the virus.

    Combining that with yards after contact might be interesting. And yards before contact

    Still killing a 1000 a day in the states, (10 times that of cars, and just less then tobacco, but typically tobacco takes decades, not months ) . Btw, this maybe the new normal till a cure is found. I love Trump saying there is nothing to worry about, but if you get Corona at my rallies I'm not responsible. Look at Florida and Texas, 2 of the 1st states to open up. They are flying up the charts of infectious persons (and dead). Texas has nowhere near the density of New York, new Jersey, Illinois, but is 6th in cases. Hopefully such a cavalier attitude to this virus doesn't kill one of my relatives or friends, I really don't care what consenting adults do, as long as my family is safe from others stupidity.

    I haven't paid MFL yet, still not sold their will be a season, not sure how they can have one with this many infected, or if even 1 team has infected players. Are they going to move to flag football and no contact? Let them all wheel those giant sumo wrestling suits, and start 6 on the field. Waiting and watching the college teams try and work out what they will be doing. Honestly it feels like we fell asleep at the finish line and let covid overcome us again.

    Drew Brees' wife, Brittany, apologizes: 'We are the problem' With all due respect (none) Drew Brees is a psssy. I'm sorry but now it's just pathetic. What is he over compensating for?

    I feel that Drew Brees body of work was all he needed to prove his character to me. These social media civil right pioneers dont impress me at all when its just words and no action. Brees has a body of work of action and he had to do the walk of shame . The social media aftermath of this tragedy is everyone tripping over themselves to show how anti racist they are and how white people are the debbil . When I see people march or make a donation or physically do something to help, I commend you and take you seriously and I appreciate your true efforts to a cause you believe in . When I see you just post pandering nonsense that in your mind makes you feel like hoards of black people are going to carry you to the barbecue , It rings very hollow to me . Skin in the game . Its more than pretty words and cute memes and Drew Brees has a ton of it . A real " family teammate" may have said to everyone during the time Drew was getting lambasted , before you roast him , look at all of the good he has done for the black communities . The fact that he disagrees with kneeling during the anthem shouldn't negate the fact that he has proven to be an ally in the plights that face black people

    Brees didn't have to wait very long to make the dumbest statement on race in a 24 hour cycle. Our president spoke this morning.

    Polished or not, Brees knew what he was saying. He was smart enough to know what's happening nationally and what his response meant.

    I totally agree, that's where he went wrong but everyone is scared to say what they really feel right now. I don't think there is anyone in the World who isn't appalled by what happened to Mr. Floyd. He was intentionally murdered by that a-hole cop and he deserves to die along with his crooked buddies. I can't apologize for for what happened 300 years ago or even 50 years ago. I wasn't there, it wasn't me. But we do need to make sure everyone is granted the same opportunities and justices TODAY.

    One can have an opinion but the other can't. The flag means something to Brees, it means something different to others. To each his own, no problem.
