  1. Sure, if he hadn't lost his mind, he'd probably still be #1. That's a big IF, though. It wasn't just one event. He destroyed his relationship with PIT, refused to play in OAK, and has since had numerous situations pop up that involve criminal charges. Luke Keuchly might still be one of the best LB's in the league. But, if somebody asks me to make a list of my top 5 currently, I'm not putting him on it.
  2. Another way of looking at it... the designation of "NFL's best WR" implies that the player is going to play again (active/current). I give him a less than 50% chance of ever taking another NFL snap, personally. In fact, I'd say it's far more likely that he spends significant time behind bars than plays in the NFL again.
  3. If your argument is that he's the best WR of the past decade, I'm right there with you. But, I think the topic is CURRENT best WR. Hard to argue that a guy who is a year removed from playing competitive football, not to mention has apparently completely lost his mind/is a complete headcase, still holds that status, regardless of what he did before. I suppose anybody could argue that he has a spot in the top 10, top 5, or whatever. But, as long as he's away (and not likely to play any time soon, given all of the factors involved), I almost think a better designation for him in this conversation is simply "not applicable."
  4. Maybe Allen is better than I’m giving him credit for. The rest? Meh.
  5. I guess I don’t really see having much success, fantasy-wise, if you have multiple Bills in your lineup to begin with. They’re a defensive team, and their defense would probably be about the only piece I’d want to rely on regularly. Allen? Good QB2, but wouldn’t want to have him as my #1. Singletary? Same story. Good RB2, great flex. But, if he’s your top dog, you’re in trouble. Diggs will be drafted higher than he’s worth, almost certainly. Brown and/or Beasley will regress, and good luck guessing which one doesn’t. Do they even have a TE worth drafting, outside of Knox as a dynasty flier? I’m just not seeing much I’d want to rely on weekly, regardless of the schedule.
  6. RIP Don Shula

    Yeah, I think that's the most likely. But, if I had to put numbers on it, I would put even that one at less than a 50/50 chance of happening. That's at least four, and probably more like 5-6 solid seasons.... I don't think BB has that left in him, all factors considered.
  7. RIP Don Shula

    Some incredible stats I heard about him yesterday..... 31 winning seasons out of 33 total. Still 55 wins ahead of Belicheck. Went to the SB with FIVE different QB's. Not sure if any of those will ever be matched.
  8. Gronk to the Bucs

    Agreed.
  9. Mock draft, anyone?

    If you need my help, I’d prefer to do MIN, and if needed, throw another team my way.
  10. Brandin Cooks to the Texans

    Seems like he’s the guy nobody wants. Four teams in five years. And, as much as it seems like he’s had concussion issues or whatever, he’s only missed two games in the past five seasons (both this year).
  11. Mock draft, anyone?

    Just saw this. I'm in for whatever.
  12. The right way to do Social Distancing

    My understanding is that is now happening here. One in, one out. I was there last week (Thurs and Fri) and it was like nothing I've ever seen. Black Friday times ten.
  13. Bump... Three spots filled. Need one more, then we will set up the 4-team draft of open players/picks/cash. Let me know if you want in on a great league!
  14. Four open teams (all notated with an * on the rosters page). We will conduct a dispersal draft between the four new owners, which will involve players, rookie draft picks, and cash. Cost is $50 per team. Between the four teams, there are five first round picks (including 1.02 and 1.03), as well as several picks in each of the additional rounds (8 round draft total). Send me a PM or post here if interested. DW2 Rosters
  15. Playoff Expansion

    This. Trying to watch four games in two days is hard enough these days.
