  1. Doug Baldwin Value this year?

    I drafted him in one league, 12-team standard, and do not plan on dropping him yet; I'm assuming he misses at least up to week 4/5 with a Week 5/6 return. Seattle has their BYE week 7 so it's not out of the question they hold him out until week 8, but I find that less likely than him returning before the BYE. If he returns before week 7 I likely won't be starting him in that first match-up to be safe and see how he looks; after the BYE I would likely play him. I was definitely not dropping him for any of the "top" waiver claims this week, DJ Moore made sure of that. I could see the value in dropping him in a 10 team league if the benches aren't deep.
  2. How did this person win in a Tie Game???

    From the ESPN site, I see the following options: Regular Season Tiebreakers If a matchup in the regular season ends in a tie, ESPN gives the League Manager several options to break the tie and award a win: Can leave the matchup as a tie Home team wins the matchup The team with the most bench points wins the matchup (Note: This is your entire bench combined, not just a single player with the most points) The team with the most QB points wins the matchup The team with the most RB points wins the matchup The team with the most WR points wins the matchup Looks like it depends on what your league commish set it for. Here's the link, hopefully this doesn't break posting rules. I'll remove if so. https://support.espn.com/hc/en-us/articles/115003870271-Regular-Season-Tiebreakers
  3. Fournette - Any update on his condition?

    Depends on the league for me. In a 12 team standard there isn't much at RB that is worth grabbing and a lot of the times people just go after anyone with the potential for double digit touches. I do agree with your assessment though. Even with Fournette out there is likely someone else on your roster that's a better start.
  4. Fournette - Any update on his condition?

    If I was the Fournette owner I'd be throwing out a claim for a few bucks, but nothing big. I saw someone pay 30% for Yeldon this week, and they don't own Fournette.
  5. Week 1 Waiver Wire

    Most interesting for me this week: Chicago D going for $12 out of $100 in a 10 team league - I'm not entirely sold that they're matchup proof yet and this seems like a lot if they aren't In a 12 team standard league one guy made the following two moves: Yeldon going for $30 out of $100 - The surprise for me here was this was not the Fournette owner. Enunwa $20 out of $100 - Jets homer Nothing else too crazy from what I can tell.
  6. JAX WRs

    The Jaguars have a strong defense and a run first mentality on offense. As long as the defense can keep them in close games and they can move the ball via the run I don't expect big numbers from Bortles or any of the WRs. The true value of Bortles and his WRs is during garbage time.
  7. Which players are on all your teams?

    So far I've got 4 season long leagues. No MFLs or best ball type. I've got the following on at least 2 out of the 4. Dalvin Cook, Melvin Gordon, Josh Gordon, McCaffery, Jeffery, Burton, Agholor, Mike Williams, DJ Moore
  8. Start Breida or Peterson?

    Peterson for sure in the standard. No I would not consider Blount a better option. Peterson should see a decent carry quantity where I do not know what to expect from Blount. I think you'd be hoping for a goal line TD from Blount where Peterson could get you good value by being the primary ball carrier.
  9. Trade question

    This is the issue right here. No one knows what will happen yet. Everything is speculation and unconfirmed. You have to decide for yourself which you'd be okay with: 1) You make the trade, Bell returns within a week or two and you came out with great value 2) You make the trade, but Bell doesn't return until much later. Conner goes on to be a great weekly RB start and your trade value doesn't look so great 3) You don't make the trade, Bell returns and now you're stuck with the backup and possibly little to no trade value 4) You don't make the trade, Bell doesn't return. This can go many ways, if there is no definitive news on Bell's return you end up revisiting this question weekly. You could probably list a few more of these scenarios as well. In the end it comes down to which you're most comfortable dealing with.
  10. I was attempting to look back at two individual players and compare their stats game by game and cannot find the game logs in the Statistics tab of the Player Profile page in the new design. Is the previous season game log table available in the newly designed player profile page? I recall the previous season game log being available in the older design.
  11. Player Profile Statistics - Game Log

    Thanks for the update WW! In the event that I want to check back on the game logs in the future, is there a way for me to look at the older design of the player profile pages? I noticed a switchback link in another thread, will that work for this type of scenario as well?
  12. Huddle not accessible in the European Union

    Do we have any fixes for users from the United States who are receiving this message? Strangely enough, I can access www.usatoday.com but when I login to my huddle account I still get the error message...
  13. 1/2 point PPR i give up Jordy Nelson and Christian McCaffery and receive Carson Wentz and Kelvin Benjamin My Team QB: Tyrod RB: Fournette, Kamara, Murray, McKinnon, McCaffery WR: Jordy, Hogan, Funchess, Allen
  14. I guess we value Kamara and McCaffery differently. I'd rather keep Kamara. I can't start all 4 of them weekly and this week is the trade deadline. I am still left with 3 RBs who can finish as RB1s at any given time with Murray being more of a low end RB2/flex. My biggest issues are QB and WR. This solves my QB issues rest of season and my WRs are good enough that my RBs can compensate.
  15. Big Ben, Dalton, Eli, Brissett Cutler keenum Fitzpatrick
  16. Standard format 2 RB, 2 WR, 1 WR/RB flex I figure I can roll with McKinnon, Fournette and Kamara as weekly RB/flex starters while playing matchups for WRs. Allen as a weekly start as long as his targets stay up. Hogan, Benjamin or Funchess will be the biggest decision.
  17. Trade Funchess for Abdullah

    Agreed RP. Before the waivers I was kind of thinking this was a decent trade as far as value was concerned, but now that I was able to grab a couple of decent RBs for this week I think I can hold for at least a week or 2 and see how things shake out. Minnesota is more of a run via the pass type offense which makes me think McKinnon should be solid ROS. McGuire is more of a fill in for now until Powell comes back. Maybe I can leverage the two of them into a better situation, but I would need to find a new trade partner for that. Someone who is hurting for RB help in the next couple weeks and is willing to do a 2 for 1 deal for 2 decent RBs for one solid RB. It'll be a stretch, but something worth investigating.
  18. Before waivers last night my team was pretty rough as far as RBs were concerned, it still is, but not as bad as before. Yesterday I was debating a trade where I give up Funchess and get Abdullah. Although after waivers were processed I don't know if it's really in my best interest right now to make the move. This is a 10 team keeper league, no PPR. Yardage bonuses for over 100yd rush/rec. Start: 1 QB, 2 RB, 3 W/T, 1 TE, K, DST My Team QB: Carr/Rivers RB: Miller, L. Murray, Coleman, McKinnon, McGuire, Cook WR: Julio Jones, Michael Thomas, Crabtree, Funchess TE: Gronk, ASJ Other Team: QB: Wilson/Watson RB: Zeke, Martin, Ajayi, Abdullah, Henry WR: Brown, Cooks, Fuller, Parker, Kupp TE: Reed Now that I was able to grab McKinnon & McGuire on waivers this week I don't feel this trade is the best bet. Losing Funchess kills my depth at WR and while I have 3 good starters, if anyone were to get hurt I would have to scour the waivers for a replacement if I lost Funchess. Would you make this trade or try to work on something better for Martin/Ajayi?
  19. Trade Funchess for Abdullah

    Would you consider it knowing that it would put me down to 3 WRs in a league where I have to start 3 WRs each week? Funchess is a better option ROS than anything on the waivers right now. I'll probably scour the waivers and dump Latavius Murray for a 5th WR at some point depending on how things look in MIN. McKinnon seems to have won himself the job, but no way of knowing for sure yet.
  20. Howard or Kamara?

    Without looking at the matchups or injuries I say Howard all the way. He is the lead back in the Chicago offense. Kamara is still splitting with Ingram.
  21. McKinnon or Aaron Jones

    Two schools of thought here you'll have to choose which is best for you. 1) Grab Jones and you will always be able to start the #1 GB RB. When Ty comes back you probably won't be able to play both, but at least you always have whoever is the lead guy. 2) Diversify and grab McKinnon. He looks like the back to own in MIN after the first game. It might vary week to week, but McKinnon clearly set himself apart from Murray.
  22. Flex spot

    PPR I'd lean Kamara, but it's tough to say how much more action he sees with AP missing. Standard I lean Crabtree for TD potential, especially with Carr returning this week.
  23. PPR ROS RB rank them

    I rank them like this: Kamara - Great offense where he is the primary pass catching back. Should see around 10-15 touches per game minimum. McKinnon - Good offense that can't run the ball so they run via short passing. McKinnon should see plenty of check downs and dump offs in addition to plenty of carries. Murray looked awful and McKinnon is clearly the back to own in MIN. Buck Allen - Only above Duke because West is out. Duke - Outplaying Crowell, but still doesn't see too high a volume of carries still with the Crow in the mix. Explosive player with plenty of pass catching opportunity and a few runs. Thompson - Rob Kelley due back this week could hurt his carries. Low volume. Blount - Week to week he is TD dependent most of the time. Cohen - Barely used in their last game. Not seeing the volume required to be relevant. Worthy of a stash to see how things develop once Trubisky gets more comfortable.
