  1. Demaryius Thomas to Texans?

    He also has a reporting bonus of $150,000. So if he gets cut at the 53 man cutdown, he'll have made $300,000. But he might have to pass a physical in July to get the reporting bonus. If he isn't running well by July, he might be cut before training camp even starts and will only get the signing bonus. Both ASJ and Demaryius might be long shots to make the roster and Belichick might already know it.
  2. 2019 Vegas Win Total Over/Under

    Even their home schedule isn't easy. The Saints and Rams are clearly better teams. But the 49ers, Ravens, and Vikings are also tough matchups. Even the Bucs and Bengals could be threats to win. That is 5 to 7 potentially tough matchups at home. Only Arizona is a cakewalk in either their road or home schedule. The article cited used last year's records for strength of schedule. Arizona and San Francisco won 3 and 4 games last year and they faced them both twice. That slanted the results considerably. A better method would be to use this year's projected win totals. Using that method, the Seahawks 2019 opponents have an average over/under win total of 9.3 (league average is 8.125).
  3. 2019 Vegas Win Total Over/Under

    I think it's a hard schedule because a lot of the teams they face that had bad or average records last year are actually good teams. 7 out of 8 of their road opponents are tough matchups. I think they still win 9 or more because of Wilson and the program. Here are their opponents: Home: Arizona Cardinals, Los Angeles Rams, San Francisco 49ers, Baltimore Ravens, Cincinnati Bengals, Minnesota Vikings, New Orleans Saints, Tampa Bay Buccaneers Away: Arizona Cardinals, Los Angeles Rams, San Francisco 49ers, Atlanta Falcons, Carolina Panthers, Cleveland Browns, Philadelphia Eagles, Pittsburgh Steelers
  4. Demaryius Thomas to Texans?

    A lot of it is incentives and very little of it is guaranteed. If they cut him before the season starts, the Patriots will only have paid him $300,000.
  5. Russell Wilson: “Hey Seattle, we got a deal” Posted by Curtis Crabtree on April 16, 2019, 3:55 AM EDT https://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com/category/rumor-mill/ Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson is apparently keeping that title for some time yet to come. In a video posted to his Twitter account at 12:44 a.m. PDT, Wilson said from his bed that he has a new deal with the Seahawks. “Hey Seattle, we got a deal,” Wilson said. Wilson and his wife, Ciara, then both added a “Go Hawks!” before Wilson implored everyone to go to bed. “I’m going to see y’all in the morning. Time for y’all to go to bed,” Wilson said. Wilson and his agent, Mark Rodgers, had imposed a deadline on April 15th as the final time they would address a new contract with the Seahawks ahead of the final year of his existing contract. That deadline apparently was enough to spark action to a deal getting finalized either late Monday night or early Tuesday morning. Adam Schefter of ESPN.com reports that the deal is worth $140 million in new moneywith a $65 million signing bonus. The contract makes Wilson the highest-paid player in the NFL, surpassing Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers. Per Bob Condotta of The Seattle Times, the deal is a four-year extension that will make the total contract a five-year deal worth $157 million through the 2023 season. That combines the $140 million of the new deal and the $17 million Wilson was set to make in 2019 in the final year of his existing contract. Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network reports Wilson will receive $107 million guaranteed and his contract contains a no-trade clause.
  6. I'm in Bogota, Colombia. I've been sleeping at a young lady's apartment and have been getting back to my place at 3pm each day. So I would slow things down considerably since all of you are active here during work hours. If anyone is active in the morning but not in the pm, I could maybe share a division with them. Otherwise, I don't want to be the reason you all are waiting for 6 hours for me to make my pick.
  7. Need help: Most competitive league settings?

    Decimal scoring is a more accurate. And you'll have far less ties with decimal scoring. I kind of enjoy ties so I don't really have an opinion.
  8. Need help: Most competitive league settings?

    It's all the same. No rules are more competitive than any others. It's just preferences. Any competitor will adapt to the rules. I believe one-point-per-reception is good. But I'd adapt if it weren't. Some like 1.5 points per tight end reception. But it doesn't make it more competitive. Just go with the preset rules and know that competitiveness comes from what you do after the rules are set, not before.
  9. Nope. Tanking is wrong even if it is within the best interests of the owner. A person with even a shred of honor won't tank. But a not insignificant percentage of people are snakes in the grass. You can learn a lot about your friends by how they conduct themselves in a fantasy league. Rules should be written as to not encourage tanking. A lot of league drama can be avoided with well written rules. If draft positions aren't going to be randomly picked, I like a system that gives the first pick to the team who had the best record and didn't make the playoffs. The team with the worst record would end up with the 6th pick assuming a 12 person league and 6 teams making the playoffs. This gives every team incentive to take the whole season seriously. A lot of tanking isn't an owner purposely putting in a less than optimal lineup. A lot of tanking is owners who stop paying attention because they have no chance at the playoffs and have no incentive to put any time into it.
  10. ASJ to Pats

    I was thinking 12th -14th round but you're probably right that he'll go higher. I don't think I'll be willing to use a 10th round pick or higher on him. With signing for so little money, he might just be a warm body and might not even make the 53 man roster. Jacob Hollister might be the better gamble and he currently doesn't even have an adp in MFL10s (366 players have adps). And I think that the Patriots will use a first or second day pick on a tight end in the draft which will muddle things even more.
  11. ASJ to Pats

    I assumed they were waiting until May 7th to sign him so as to not offset next year's compensatory picks. But he's only getting the veteran minimum so it won't affect it. I'm surprised he couldn't get $2-$3 million somewhere. I'll definitely be targeting ASJ in the lower rounds as my 2nd or 3rd tight end (yep, I am willing to roster 3 tight ends). Demaryius Thomas visited the Patriots today. He would be a typical Belichick signing. Ndamakong Suh would also be a typical Belichick signing. It wouldn't surprising if the Patriots already have a deal in place with Suh but are waiting until May 7th to make it official.
  12. I'm too busy right now. Sorry
  13. I'm looking for a dynasty league, too. So if you start one, I'd join. Although, it might be tough to start a new BOTH league considering we could only get 7 participants in the mock league.
  14. What round will you draft Josh Gordon?

    Are you including the possibility of suspension as his floor? He is talented. He has stayed in great shape even when suspended (very rare for suspended players). He has little competition on the Patriots. If he is playing, he will produce. A suspension or injury are the only things that could prevent it.
  15. What round will you draft Josh Gordon?

    Gordon was the 22nd highest scoring wide receiver in weeks 5 through 14 last year. So he was already a wr2 with almost no experience with Brady or their complicated system. If he is reinstated in July, his floor might be low end wr1.
