    Here's a breakdown of the celebration rule changes...the Key and Peele video is hilarious. That celebration would easily be worth the 15 yards. http://www.sportingnews.com/nfl/news/nfl-celebrations-rules-changes-guide-touchdown-twerk-fines-penalties/10avlygqnctlez2bf561umewx

    Below is the average fantasy points of each round one draft position over the last 12 years separated by position. I used MFL adp rank, not their actual MFL adp. For instance, Antonio Brown had an adp of 2.11 last year, but he had the highest adp so he would be considered to have had an adp rank of 1. Points system used is ppr, .1 per yard rushing or receiving, 4 points passing td, .05 points per yard passing, -2 for fumbles, -2 for interceptions. Pick 1 11 rb averaged 298 points 1 wr averaged 308 points Pick 2 1 qb averaged 388 points 9 rb averaged 269 points 2 wr averaged 339 points Pick 3 1 qb averaged 281 points 9 rb averaged 210 points 2 wr averaged 242 points Pick 4 2 qb averaged 76 points 10 rb averaged 270 points Pick 5 3 qb averaged 362 points 6 rb averaged 237 points 3 wr averaged 318 points Pick 6 2 qb averaged 380 points 7 rb averaged 245 points 3 wr averaged 333 points Pick 7 3 qb averaged 285 points 6 rb averaged 187 points 3 wr averaged 224 points Pick 8 2 qb averaged 292 points 7 rb averaged 230 points 2 wr averaged 232 points 1 te averaged 229 points Pick 9 1 qb averaged 338 points 7 rb averaged 160 points 3 wr averaged 206 points 1 te averaged 255 points Pick 10 3 qb averaged 323 points 8 rb averaged 263 points 1 wr averaged 205 points Pick 11 3 qb averaged 306 points 7 rb averaged 169 points 1 wr averaged 314 points 1 te averaged 97 points Pick 12 1 qb averaged 362 points 5 rb averaged 186 points 6 wr averaged 251 points Overall in the first round of the last 12 years 22 qb averaged 304 points 92 rb averaged 233 points 27 wr averaged 266 points 3 te averaged 193 points

    The 4 highest season totals from the last 12 years are from running backs so their ceiling is a tad higher. Wide receivers definitely have a higher floor. The biggest difference in floor wasn't running backs getting hurt, though they did get hurt a bit more often. The biggest difference was that running backs would sometimes just suck for no apparent reason. A lot of the time it was a running back who had only been good for one year previously. Receivers drafted in the first round had almost always been elite for several years and injury was the only way they didn't meet their expectations.

    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

    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!

    would be cool to see just 2014-2016 if you have the data on excel or something (and additional rounds would be very cool too) cause i feel like the prevailing draft philosophy up until the past few years was much more RB heavy in the first round. i did a brief skim of the some of the historical ADPs from the link you posted and it seems to support that. and it seems like there were less WRs in the top half of the first round compared to now. i didn't see many WRs going before picks 8 or 9 or so other than Calvin sneaking into like 4-6 a few times, and i don't think i saw any WRs going in the top 3 picks ever until 2014. that seems to be a bit of a turning point where 2 WRs went in the top 6 picks and WRs outnumbered RBs for the round as a whole. it also seems like people were more willing to take QBs high several years ago. did matt stafford really go #12 in 2012? jeez. 5 QBs in the first 13 picks that year...

    Below in the left column in descending order are the fantasy points scored the 92 times running backs have had a first round adp rank in the last 12 years. The right column in descending order are the fantasy points scored the 27 times wide receivers have had a first round adp rank in the last 12 years. Since there are 3.4 more running backs chosen than wide receivers, I've put the wide receivers results proportionately down the list. 481 415 382 407 392 378 376 369 372 370 370 359 367 366 346 342 330 328 325 323 340 321 317 310 319 305 303 302 302 316 298 283 277 314 276 276 276 308 275 272 272 270 306 262 261 250 303 246 243 243 236 296 234 234 233 287 232 231 227 284 226 224 225 222 267 217 211 208 261 207 205 204 203 259 202 201 199 256 199 199 198 232 189 185 178 178 226 177 176 155 208 154 152 151 144 205 142 141 140 199 140 137 129 197 128 127 127 123 186 108 95 82 97 80 70 68 95 18 9

    Thx goose, I appreciate the kind words and have enjoyed playing this game for many, many years. This will be the first time since 1989 that I will not take part in FF. I will miss it dearly but my family, especially with 4 kids, really need all that I can give them. I will be back some day. In the meantime, enjoy all!

    I say get it while you can. What's the point of exerting yourself to become one of the tops in your field if you don't get to enjoy the fruits of your labor, especially when the window of opportunity is so small. Remember when Tony Romo used to tap Jessica Simpson? I think he banged Carrie Underwood also? And that chick from One Tree Hill? Next thing you know, guy settles down and gets married and his backbone turns to dust. Coincidence? I think not. Live like a gladiator, play like a gladiator. Put that ring on and put a load on your back, you end up broken and Dak'd. Oh yeah and sitting in a booth making millions talking about football, but hey....

    Yeah, I would hope they have a concrete idea of who their starter is going to be in the next several weeks. Are they splitting first team reps all through camp?

    If the Chargers o-line can stay healthy (LOL) I wouldn't sleep on them! Allen/Williams/T. Williams/Gates/Henry/Gordon could be one of the most potent offenses in the league. I think the Broncos are the odd man out this year, actually. That QB situation is a mess.

    2 QB league accomplishes essentially the same thing but without skewing the game so much that it becomes about whose QB2 can outscore the others, which is what superflex usually does The potential fatal flaw in superflex still comes down to the scoring system - if the scoring system is such that the top RBs and WRs put up about 200 points and those generally in flex consideration are around 130 points scored (all numbers hypothetical here), and top QBs score 350 points with those in flex consideration are scoring around 275 points, then the league essentially becomes determined on who has the highest scoring flex QB. There is never any question that the flex should be a QB, even if it is the #26 QB in the league. Using the default Huddle Performance scoring system, there were 28 QBs with more than 200 point scored last season (Osweiler was number 28 with 233 points). There were 9 RBs over that mark. In fact, if we assume only 1 RB required and a 12 team league, the top flex consideration RB who would be RB13 only scored 177 points (Latavius Murray). If we were to use PPR, now there are 16 RBs with 200+ points, but your RB 13 (still Latavius Murray) only scored 210 points, still 23 points less than QB28. Using the default Huddle Performance system, there were only 3 WRs over 200 points, so if we assume 2 required starters, your flex considerations starting at WR25 (Mike Wallace) only scored 129 points - basically a zero percent chance he would ever be a legitimate flex option. With PPR, there are now 24 WRs with 200+ points scored, and WR25 (Kelvin Benjamin) scored 199 points - still less than QB28. In summary, superflex without some major tweaks to scoring system so that all positions are scoring roughly the same number of points is nothing more than a whose QB2 can outscore the others by a lot.

    The other thread about scoring rules got me thinking about rookie drafts in superflex leagues. I haven't quite settled on this, but here is what I think my board looks like: 1. Mahomes - I think he clearly has the most upside with his natural ability and playing for Andy Reid. The downside is that he probably won't be of any use in year one. 2. Kizer - Similar to Mahomes. I think he is second in terms of ability and he gets to play for Hugh Jackson. My guess is that he is the starter in Cleveland before the year is out. 3. Watson - Great landing spot to be the starter in week 1. I loved watching him in college was but was pretty disappointed by his measured arm strength. 4. Trubisky - I think he was a one-year-wonder at UNC and he landed in one hell of a hot mess. Hard pass at his ADP. If he falls to the 4th in a 2QB or superflex I may be a buyer then. I am also thinking that a flyer on Chad Kelley would be a good investment. He should be there in the 4th, if not the 5th. At that point, everything is a shot in the dark. Any other 2QB Huddlers out there with to share? What's your order for the top 4 and who is your late round wild card?

    NFL Profile The link above gives him an NFL comparison of Greg Olsen, which it might be a little to early to do. The Browns didn't release Gary Barnidge to have Njoku play a limited role. He's only 20 years old and measures like 6'5" 240lbs. He was recruited to Miami originally as a WR, a former National High Jump champion, and had a 37.5" vertical at the combine and a 6.97 Three Cone. He has every single tool to be a matchup nightmare and he has been doing nothing but impressing at camp so far. Oh and as I mentioned before he is only 20! I still get a kick out of him thinking Joe Thomas was a coach when he first met him.

    I have nothing but good things to say about Berman. Unlike most of ESPN these days, he played it straight and stuck to the game. Very sad day for him and his family. He and his wife were preparing to enter their golden years together, terrible to see it torn away in an instant. Life is precious and fragile, this is a sad reminder of that fact.
