  1. Saquon has solidified himself as a top 3 pick at a minimum. But should he be the #1 pick in redraft next year?
  2. Vikings can OC John DeFilippo

    He is amazing at them. But it a play for 3rd down or 4th down, not 1st down or 2nd down.
  3. Vikings can OC John DeFilippo

    Did anyone see where Tom Brady did a quarterback sneak on 2nd and 1 with 8:48 left in the 4th quarterback last Sunday? The ball was on the Miami 34 yard line and the Patriots trailed 27-28. There are valid arguments on both sides what to do when it is 3rd or 4th down. But I cannot fathom an argument to do a quarterback sneak in that situation. The only explanation is that they thought it was 3rd down.
  4. Vikings can OC John DeFilippo

    That is where the OC and the HC need to be on the same page. The OC decided the 3rd down play but the head coach decides whether to go for it on 4th down. The OC shouldn't have called that play if they weren't going for it on 4th down. And I would have gone for it on 4th down regardless of field position. The only time I wouldn't go for it on 4th and 1 is if my team had a 10+ point lead. A punt is a turnover. Not turning the ball over is far more important than the 32.56% chance of losing 40 yards of field position.
  5. Vikings can OC John DeFilippo

    I like the idea of a long pass on 3rd and 1. You still have 4th down to convert the first down.
  6. And down go the Patriots

    Gronk secrectly wanted the play to succeed. He couldn't help himself.
  7. James Conner (ankle) ruled out for Week 14 http://www.rotoworld.com/headlines/nfl/387111/james-conner-(ankle)-ruled-out-for-week-14?ls=roto:PIT:topheadlines Steelers coach Mike Tomlin said James Conner (ankle) will not play Week 14 against the Raiders. The Steelers initially believed Conner was only dealing with a contusion, but further tests revealed a sprain. There is some belief he is dealing with a high-ankle sprain, which would cause him to miss multiple games. Jaylen Samuels should take over as the starter with Stevan Ridley behind him on the depth chart. Samuels is now the top add for the week. Source: Aditi Kinkhabwala on Twitter Dec 4 - 12:09 PM
  8. Week 14 Milk Carton - Playoff Edition

    That was my doing. I sacrificed a goat to the fantasy gods at halftime.
  9. It won't be surprising if he is shut down at some point. http://www.rotoworld.com/player/nfl/6475/julio-jones Julio Jones (foot) didn't practice Wednesday. It's an out of nowhere injury for Jones, who played 77 percent of snaps last week. Coach Dan Quinn didn't show much concern when asked about his status. We'll have an update on Jones when Atlanta returns to practice Thursday. Dec 5 - 4:19 PM Source: ESPN
  10. James Conner ruled out for week 14

    I believe Samuels getting the start is significant. Usually an early down specialist who is a veteran would get the start over a receiving back who is a rookie. Since neither is good at running the ball, I bet Samuels gets 6-10 receptions. Samuels to start for PIT, but will split work http://www.rotoworld.com/headlines/nfl/387160/samuels-to-start-for-pit-but-will-split-work?ls=roto:PIT:topheadlines Jaylen Samuels said he'll be the Steelers' starting running back Week 14 against the Raiders. While Samuels will make the start, he said Stevan Ridley is expected to get the second series, and the two backs will rotate throughout the game. That may be the plan for now, but it can change Sunday depending on how Samuels and Ridley look. We still like Samuels as an upside RB2 play. Source: Jeremy Fowler on Twitter Dec 5 - 3:36 PM
  11. Malcolm Brown out for season

    I've had Malcolm rostered on several teams since August. He looked great in the touches he did get. John Kelly might now be worth a speculative add. Although it is strange that Kelly hasn't been active since week 1. http://www.rotoworld.com/player/nfl/10674/malcolm-brown Rams RB Malcolm Brown (broken collarbone) will miss the rest of the regular season. Coach Sean McVay called the injury "huge," but it is only going to come into play if Todd Gurley gets hurt. At that point, the Rams would have bigger problems on their hands. It's far from a guarantee that Brown would be ready for the playoffs. Dec 4 - 3:37 PM Source: Mike Garafolo on Twitter
  12. Changes in rules always seem to be important to one or two owners and the rest of the league will just go along with it because they don't really care. Personally, I see no difference in 0 ppr vs .5 ppr vs.1 ppr or 4 point tds vs 6 point tds. Positions don't need to be exactly balanced. Positions aren't exactly balanced in the NFL. You can adjust to the rules instead of the rules adjusting to your personal preferences. One rule change every 3 years isn't too bad but I still think it is unnecessary.
  13. I hate leagues that tweak rules. There are no correct or incorrect rules. Whether touchdowns are 4 points, 6 points, or 8 points doesn't make fantasy football any better or any worse. Just adapt what you do to the rules. I've been in leagues where the commissioner changes the rules every single year and he truly felt he was creating the perfect rules. Just write well-thought-out rules when you start the league and stick with them.
  14. James Conner ruled out for week 14

    Maybe I spoke too soon. I still think he'll be a ppr monster even in a RBBC. Jeff Wilson could be a better pickup depending on how bad Breida's injury is. Mike Tomlin says 'intention' is to use RBBC http://www.rotoworld.com/headlines/nfl/387113/mike-tomlin-says-intention-is-to-use-rbbc?ls=roto:PIT:topheadlines Steelers coach Mike Tomlin said the Steelers' "intention" is to use a running back by committee. This makes sense considering Jaylen Samuels has 12 career carries to his name and Stevan Ridley has carried the load before, most recently Week 17 of last season. Even so, Samuels is the better fantasy bet and the top waiver add of the week. Source: Ed Bouchette on Twitter Dec 4 - 12:17 PM
  15. I wouldn't be surprised if Breida is done for the season. One of the nice things about not drafting running backs in rounds 2-4 is that a lot of quality running backs pop up on the waiver wire in December. The name "Jeff Wilson" sounds like a MLB pitcher, not an NFL running back. But I'm buying. Shanny's running backs produce.
  16. James Conner ruled out for week 14

    Jaylen Samuels will be a ppr monster. He had 75 receptions last year as a tight end/fullback/H-Back/gadget player. He is worth 100% of your remaining FAAB.
  17. Kickers and defenses are mostly unpredictable. So when one does well year after year, they are worth a 12th-14th round pick. My teams next year will have Zuerlein, Gostkowski, or Tucker at kicker. As far as defenses, it's more difficult finding one that has been good for several years. I'll still use a 12th-14th round pick on one that did well this year. That low of a pick is a small investment. A bigger decision is whether to keep them through their bye week. This can be an excruciating decision in leagues with short benches.
  18. McCarthy Out in Green Bay

    Since not giving Aaron Jones a lot of touches is a big criticism McCarthy faced this season, I am hoping Philbin's response is to give him 25+ touches per game.
  19. Josh Adams late addition to injury report http://www.rotoworld.com/headlines/nfl/386771/josh-adams-late-addition-to-injury-report?ls=roto:PHI:topheadlines Josh Adams (hip) is questionable for Week 13 against the Redskins. Adams was injured Saturday after practicing fully the last two days. Late week setbacks are never good, so this is a concern for his playing status. Wendell Smallwood and Corey Clement will see more early-down snaps if Adams can't get cleared. The Eagles are also expected to get Darren Sproles (questionable, hamstring) back this week.

  20. Pick 2

    I need to pick 2 of the following for flex in PPR league. It is the first week of the playoffs. Sony Michel vs Min Gus Edwards at Atl LeSean McCoy at Mia Julian Edelman vs Min Emmanuel Sanders at Cin
  21. Pick 2

  22. Alex Collins put on IR

    Alex Collins (foot) placed on injured reserve http://www.rotoworld.com/headlines/nfl/386766/alex-collins-(foot)-placed-on-injured-reserve?ls=roto:BAL:topheadlines Ravens placed Alex Collins (foot) on injured reserve, ending his 2018 season. Source: Adam Schefter on Twitter Dec 1 - 12:40 PM
  23. Buy Low on Rob Gronkowski

    His gait isn't smooth. It looks like one of his legs is now longer than the other. It's been that way for at least a year or two.
  24. Choosing my playoff matchup?

    A good person wouldn't even consider doing this. A classy person wouldn't even consider doing this. But if the person who got knocked out of the playoffs decided to pop you in the nose, I'd be cool with that.
  25. Sony a dangler?

    They would be smart to use Rex. Sony is a game changer but doesn't seem built to withstand a heavy load. My guess is that players like Jay Ajayi and Sony run so explosively that their knees can't handle all of the violent impacts. But in the past, I thought that Belichick might rest Gronk for the playoffs and then he didn't rest him. And with a first round playoff bye dangling in the balance, I think Bill will continue to use Sony heavily as long as he is healthy.
