      You're in my super bowl pool yearly, so I wanted to see if you wanted in on my playoff fantasy contest for $20. More details in the thread in the main NFL forum.

  2. Greetings

    Hey, welcome back BF. Quiz time: Who knows where this guy got his Username????? (Newbs get first shot.)

    Go with her, have a great time, show her you love her, cheer and smile a lot, eat some hotdogs and chips. Football lasts a long time, little girls grow up - way too fast!
  4. Free Agent Definition

    Most leagues I'm in (and that is WAY TOO MANY) use a combination: A 'waiver' period, like Wednesday night, where FAs are awarded based on some formula like worst to first, or based on most recent pickups. After that period ends, you may then have a free for all, where first come fist pick on anybody left. This would of course end sometime before the weekend games, maybe Saturday night. This lets worst teams get first crack at obvious good picks, like a backup taking over for an injured player, but also lets everybody 'mine' the list for new 'sleepers'. BB

  9. Benson SIGNS !

    Unless this is a keeper/dynasty league, I think you made a mistake. RBs who hold out for this long seldom accomplish much until maybe halfway through the season, when ownership says we've got to get some return from this contract. I don't see Benson adding much to a FF team at all this year.
  10. The Peyton Manning Draft Strategy

    Sorry, been in too many drafts lately. The McAlister thing was in another league, where I took Dillon after Deuce. In this draft it was Portis who had 'fallen' to second round, and I was kinda glad when he went before Barber. The 1st 2 rounds: 1.01 1 Tomlinson, Ladainian SDC RB Mon Aug 22 12:26:41 p.m. ET 2005 1.02 2 Alexander, Shaun SEA RB Mon Aug 22 12:26:41 p.m. ET 2005 1.03 3 Holmes, Priest KCC RB Mon Aug 22 12:36:33 p.m. ET 2005 1.04 4 James, Edgerrin IND RB Mon Aug 22 12:36:33 p.m. ET 2005 1.05 5 Manning, Peyton IND QB Mon Aug 22 12:36:33 p.m. ET 2005 1.06 6 Davis, Domanick HOU RB Mon Aug 22 12:36:33 p.m. ET 2005 1.07 7 McAllister, Deuce NOS RB Mon Aug 22 6:48:12 p.m. ET 2005 1.08 8 McGahee, Willis BUF RB Mon Aug 22 6:54:01 p.m. ET 2005 1.09 9 Dillon, Corey NEP RB Mon Aug 22 6:54:01 p.m. ET 2005 1.10 10 Moss, Randy OAK WR Mon Aug 22 7:12:51 p.m. ET 2005 1.11 11 Jones, Kevin DET RB Mon Aug 22 7:19:24 p.m. ET 2005 1.12 12 Culpepper, Daunte MIN QB Mon Aug 22 7:19:24 p.m. ET 2005 2.01 13 Johnson, Chad CIN WR Mon Aug 22 7:21:19 p.m. ET 2005 2.02 14 Lewis, Jamal BAL RB Mon Aug 22 7:32:32 p.m. ET 2005 2.03 15 Jones, Julius DAL RB Mon Aug 22 7:44:56 p.m. ET 2005 2.04 16 Owens, Terrell PHI WR Mon Aug 22 8:17:50 p.m. ET 2005 2.05 17 McNabb, Donovan PHI QB Mon Aug 22 8:31:40 p.m. ET 2005 2.06 18 Portis, Clinton WAS RB Mon Aug 22 8:31:40 p.m. ET 2005 2.07 19 Holt, Torry STL WR Mon Aug 22 8:33:17 p.m. ET 2005 2.08 20 Barber, Tiki NYG RB Mon Aug 22 8:33:17 p.m. ET 2005 2.09 21 Johnson, Rudi CIN RB Mon Aug 22 8:33:17 p.m. ET 2005 2.10 22 Harrison, Marvin IND WR Mon Aug 22 8:41:12 p.m. ET 2005 2.11 23 Martin, Curtis NYJ RB Mon Aug 22 9:21:47 p.m. ET 2005 2.12 24 Green, Ahman GBP RB Mon Aug 22 9:23:14 p.m. ET 2005
  11. The Peyton Manning Draft Strategy

    I just finished a draft, and did the same, only from the 5 spot. These were very experienced drafters (well, very experienced in life, not sure about football acumen! The Huddle Old Timers league ) I think it went OK, but guess we'll see. 1.05 Manning 2.08 Tiki Barber (McAlister went pick ahead. With points for receptions, Barber was probably the better pick anyway. 3.05 Westbrook 4.08 Hines Ward (again PPR makes him look better) 5.05 Jason Witten, Dal TE (TE mandantory plus extra yardage points for TEs made it seem prudent to lock up a top 5 TE, before worrying about more WRs) 6.08 Duce Staley (hoping for a early season recovery, in case 1st 2 RBs suffer) 7.05 Eddie Kennison 8.08 New England Defense (early, but now have a top 2 QB, and top 5 at least TE and DEF) 9.05 Keyshawn Johnson Later added S. Moss and Toomer at WR, finished with C. Taylor, Frank Gore, and Mike Cloud for some prayer backup for RBs. Oh, and David Carr as bu QB, just in case Manning just doesn't have it this year! For comparison, LT team (1st pick) has A. Green, Javon Walker, Boldin, and Hasselbeck, Eric Johnson at TE; Culpepper team has L. Jordan, Bettis (!), Chad Johnson, (his 2nd pick), Colbert, and Shockey; Holmes team with S. Jackson and Marvin Harrison has Griese at QB; S. Alexander with CuMart, Joe Horn, Chambers, Trent Green, Doug Jolley at TE; Gonzalez is with Brady, Portis and McAlister, D. Branch, Reg Williams. All in all, my squad looks competitive with these, especially if my RBs get/stay well. Ah, but don't we all say that!
  12. 12th Pick

    Does that include QB rushing TDs? And 6 pts for passing TDs? Sure makes Vick and even Culpepper look good. Look at the projections and find those RBs who catch TD passes, and the QBs who run inside the red zone. Tiki Barber, Westbrook, hmmm even Marshall Faulk and Ahman Green should be moved up in this scoring.
  13. Predict the # of Manning TD Passes and win.....

    54 I wanted 50, but the limit kept going up. At least this way I probably won't be wrong until the season is over!

  15. Fantasy Baseball ?

    I know I'm a week late, but wanted my buddy M.I.T. to realize this was wrong advice: the league has a minimum innings pitched, not a maximum. So you still get all the stats of all your starters. I agree with posty (!) if they aren't good enough to start they shouldn't be on your roster - OK maybe I'd sit somebody at Coors if I didn't need a W or a few K's.
