  1. I'm looking for a non-idp BoTH league. Must be $100 or more buy-in. Commissioner must be a long-term Huddler.
  2. Tyreek Hill again...

    I thought he was lying on the tape. His girlfriend didn't see what happened with their kid so that was easy to lie about. I also think he was lying about what happened 5 years ago which seems stupid since his girlfriend knows exactly what he did. But sometimes people will lie about things even when they are caught red handed. Shaggy once sang a song about it. I also found it annoying that he kept calling her "bro". I would have suspended him for that alone.
  3. Rumor: Ezekiel Elliott planning a training camp holdout

    I was thinking that Ezekiel could hold out until after week 10 and still accrue a season but I was wrong. I guess Players under contract can't do that. Zeke really has no choice except to show up by August 6th with or without a new contract. https://www.rotoworld.com/football/nfl/player-news Yahoo's Charles Robinson reports Ezekiel Elliott must report to camp by August 6 in order to receive an accrued season toward free agency. Elliott is currently scheduled to be an unrestricted free agent after the 2020 season, but that would not be the case if he fails to gain at least one accrued season before then. Elliott could get the all-important fourth accrued season next year, but holding out deep into camp this time would prevent him from doing the same in his contract season. Robinson believes Elliott will ultimately decide against holding out. SOURCE: Yahoo Sports Jul 16, 2019, 9:20 AM ET
  4. Rumor: Ezekiel Elliott planning a training camp holdout

    Jerry doesn't have a history of playing hardball in contract negotiations. In fact, he might be the most player friendly negotiator in the NFL. So maybe Jerry is planning on signing Ezekiel to a new contract but is just trying to minimize it. The fairest solution would be to give him a contract with a high annual salary but with only the first two years guaranteed.
  5. Rumor: Ezekiel Elliott planning a training camp holdout

    Ezekiel is far more important to Dallas' offense than Le'Veon was to Pittsburgh's offense. Ezekiel might be more important to his team than any non-quarterback in the league. Running backs have a limited lifespan. It's not in Ezekiel's best interests to play before week 11 unless he gets a new contract.
  6. Scott Fish Bowl 9

    I wanna be an ekspurt when I grow up. Or an astronaut.
  7. Chris Herndon, NYJ TE

    I like Herndon. His numbers were solid for a rookie tight end with a rookie quarterback. PFF gave him the 12th highest overall grade and the 6th highest receiving grade for a tight end. Both Darnold and Herndon could improve considerably. Both have the potential to be top-5 at their position. My only question is whether I draft him or try to be sneaky and pick him up in week 3 or 4.
  8. Worst NFL idea ever

    I mostly have faith in the owners. The legacy owners like the Rooneys and the Maras are truly stewards of the game. Their love of the game is greater than their love of money. I'm sure that a few of the newer owners want the 18 game schedule. But if the old guard owners oppose it, the newer owners will concede. The owners might just be proposing it as a bargaining chip since the players oppose it.
  9. Worst NFL idea ever

    Maybe the owners are intentionally proposing the most ridiculous idea they could come up with so that the players are more receptive to the owner's real proposal. Just like with a fantasy trade, you lowball with your first offer.
  10. Melvin Gordon to sit out training camp

    I like that Melvin will be playing in a contract year. He'll have to play through injury.
  11. Gronk retiring

    I'm not going to read too much into this workout. Tom is working out in Cali and Gronk happened to be there for a charity basketball event. It's not like he flew out there just to work out. It makes sense that 2 friends would hang out and toss the ball around.
  12. Tedy Bruschi recovering from a stroke

    Fascinating. Tell me about the rabbits, Steve.
  13. Tyreek Hill again...

  14. The New Rotoworld Format

    I hate it.
  15. Tyreek Hill again...

    I think he gets a longer suspension than the 4 games that is rumored. At least 6 games. And I don't think he will get a new contract. The Chiefs are already going to receive a lot of blowback. They aren't going to add to that chitstorm by giving him a massive new contract. At best he'll get a verbal agreement that he'll be taken care of next offseason.
  16. Andrews, Mark BAL TE

    I think Lamar is destined to have 3,000 passing yards and 15 passing touchdowns. He could still be a fantasy force with crazy rushing stats but his wide receivers and tight ends will suffer.
  17. Any poll that doesn't have Green Bay atop the list is fake news.
  18. Brandon Bolden

    Bolden at 20? That has to be a clerical error.
  19. High Stakes Fantasy Leagues

    Of the fantasy leagues that cost in the $1,500-$2,000 range or thereabouts, which is the best?
  20. ASJ to be released

    I wonder if ASJ came into the first day of mandatory minicamp smelling like whiskey. The Boston Herald believes "all signs point to" Matt LaCosse as the Patriots' starting tight end for Week 1. https://www.rotoworld.com/football/nfl/player-news Austin Seferian-Jenkins has been released, Ben Watson is suspended and Stephen Anderson couldn't get on the field last season. That leaves 26-year-old LaCosse, who signed a two-year, $2.8 million deal early in free agency after catching 24 passes for the Broncos last year. He had previously never appeared in more than three games for any one team in a season, but stands in at 6-foot-6 with 4.6 speed. Per reporter Kevin Duffy, LaCosse has looked "smooth" in practice. With Rob Gronkowski gone, tight end is not going to be the fantasy position it once was in New England, but LaCosse is absolutely on the TE2/streaming radar.

  21. Todd Gurley - 2019 draft ranking

    Pure speculation.
  22. Todd Gurley - 2019 draft ranking

    There is a real possibility that he retires before he ever touches the ball again.
  23. 18 Game Regular Season Considered

    From a statistics perspective, I hate it.
  24. Tevin Coleman

    I have trouble seeing Tevin Coleman as the lead back. NBC Sports Bay Area's Matt Maiocco expects Tevin Coleman to receive the most touches among the 49ers' running backs this year. https://www.rotoworld.com/football/nfl/player-news Coleman has been getting first-team reps with Jerick McKinnon, Matt Breida, and Raheem Mostert sitting out OTAs. There are some concerns McKinnon is going to need time to regain his pre-injury form, giving Coleman the early edge for lead back duties. Even if Coleman starts the year atop the depth chart, the 49ers backfield is a situation to avoid. SOURCE: NBC Sports Bay Area May 27, 2019, 9:20 AM ET
  25. Tevin Coleman

    This is why I'm not going to ignore this backfield. Shanahan can be very fantasy friendly to running backs. It won't surprise me if San Fran running backs collectively lead the league in fantasy points. I won't use a high draft pick on any of them but I'll gladly roster the odd man out. Since Coleman, McKinnon, and Breida might all be drafted in the 10th round or earlier, the best strategy might be to wait until one gets dropped in week 2 or 3, which will likely happen.
