  1. Well, the sponsors used their leverage because the protests pushed them to do so. It's all related I think.
  2. Raheem Mostert wants out of San Fran

    DMD's career recap suggests that the 49ers could bring in nearly any RB and with their scheme make them productive. Mostert has some leverage since 1) Breida left and 2) no one in their right mind thinks Coleman can carry the load. Is McKinnon every going to play again?
  3. CLE TEs

    If his problem is discipline or work ethics then no way NE takes him - plus they drafted two TEs and have all kinds of salary cap problems. If it's the Cleveland scheme...what about a move to NYG to back up the brittle Evan Engram? Or the Bears so they get 15 TEs on the roster going in to training camp?
  4. Cam Newton to the Patriots

    This is hard to imagine in a redraft, let alone a dynasty. I get the superflex but there's a less than zero chance that Cam gets cut and doesn't play a game.
  5. Quarantines and Handcuffs

    My best guess is we're still in the first wave everywhere. My second definitely-not-a-guess is that testing should be free, plentiful and encouraged for anyone at almost any time. That is, if we're actually interested in containing this thing. I had high hopes for an NFL season and now it looks like we're going to crap the bed. Most of the country is on fire right now and around 6 weeks from now it'll cause an uptick in cases in places that are currently calming down, like the northeast. I don't see how anyone opens a training camp on time. I hope I'm wrong.
  6. Quarantines and Handcuffs

    Yeah we just voted the other way in my main redraft league - unlimited COVID IR spots. Who knows if it's the right call.
  7. Deebo Samuels broken foot

    I actually think they're gonna play. Fauci calling the NFL out today is gonna motivate them to get a good plan. This injury to Deebo sucks but I'd still keep an eye on Garoppolo. His early season schedule is a complete cake walk - maybe a great late-round zero QB guy to start the year. I think they have to pin the bone for this fracture so I don't see how he plays elite athletics in under 12 weeks but....I'm no orthopedist so maybe someone else on here can comment.
  8. Quarantines and Handcuffs

    The other thing that we should think about it what do you do with the season if it gets cut short? Meaning the season starts but then gets shut down for a massive COVID spike. Do you roll the money over to next year or do partial payouts assuming some minimum # of games gets played? Would be good to have contingency planning that hopefully that never gets used.
  9. Quarantines and Handcuffs

    This is pure garbage. Stick to facts or don't post. It's still at least 10x as deadly as the flu. Have you been paying attention to the news - this is nothing like "any other respiratory illness." There is zero data to support that flying is more risky than close personal contact. When someone you care about catches this, come back and tell me how you feel.
  10. Quarantines and Handcuffs

    We started talking about this yesterday. Some FFL sites (e.g. CBS) will only let you put players into the IR slot that are actually on IR, so check your platform to make sure it'll do what you want it to do. As DMD suggests, we may need way more than 1 IR spot. The silver lining: these guys are young and generally healthy and there's a chance, like what's happening right now with the Texans, that COVID could burn through a team before the regular season starts. To be clear, I don't want that to happen for anyone's health but.....fantasy-wise it means they're all fine come week 1. My main league is thinking about >1 IR spot. It's totally possible you could have 2, 3, or more players out for 1-2 weeks and the season will be no fun if you have to keep dropping good bench talent just to field a complete roster. Not sure how this would work exactly but we're thinking it through. Would be interested in any strokes of genius.
  11. Dalvin Cook holding out.

    Maybe his agent got confused and thought Jerrah owned the Vikings as well? Can't see this going well. He has some leverage (the offense really does revolve around him) but the #of years into his contract and the financial situation around COVID (where the salary cap could go down significantly and it wouldn't surprise) make this an uphill climb. Hopefully the team can talk him down. Devonte Freeman is 100% not the right answer. His durability is worse than Cook's.
  12. Drew Brees

    There's a difference between capitulation and understanding.
  13. NFL player sues United Airlines

    You guys paying attention to the news these days? Your advice is that a black man knocks a woman out? Not sure that's gonna end well for anyone.
  14. This rule change was tabled.
  15. Dak Prescott offered five-year, $175 million deal

    One of these teams was coached by Doug Pederson and the other was coached by Jason Garrett. "Nuff said. I don't think you can pin the Cowboys' mediocrity on Dak. Jason Garrett was a mindblowingly bad coach.
