  1. Who is GB’s WR2

    Rodgers seems to trust Lazard more, but can't help himself when MVS is wide open. MIN was brutal last week.... MVS could have easily gone for 6-175-3 if not for the drops. The best analogy I can think of is basketball. Lazard is the more reliable go-to guy. But, when your 4th or 5th scoring option is wide open time after time, sooner or later somebody is going to throw him the ball. MVS is that guy.... drained a wide open three-pointer, but missed a couple of layups as well. Those misses don't hurt in a blowout, but if he continues to botch layups, Rodgers is going to look elsewhere.
  2. Message Board League Draft 12 Team

    I'm moving this week... Text me if I'm up, please. # on MFL. Edit: I set up the notifications on MFL. If I happen to miss it (and am OTC for a bit), feel free to send me a text.
  3. Fantasy this year

    I'm actually the opposite. If there is one thing that this pandemic has taught me, regarding sports, it's that I don't really miss them all that much. I did at first (probably because everything shut down at such an exciting time... NCAA tourney in hoops, Players Championship in golf), but as the past 4+ months have progressed, I have missed it less and less. Haven't watched a single minute of NBA or MLB (although I would certainly watch the Twins if it were on local TV), and I'm finding myself more and more indifferent about whether or not the NFL happens. Which is funny, because I'm still (reluctantly) committed to more than a half-dozen leagues. I know that I'll get more into it if and when the season gets underway, but right now, I don't really find myself caring whether they play or not. I have played more golf in the past 4 months than any period of time in the past 20+ years, though. Even more cool than that is that my 8YO son has gotten the bug.... he's gone from having very little interest to asking me almost daily if we can go play. I've also been binge-watching a butt-load of TV, through Hulu, Netflix, and Prime.
  4. Antonio Brown re-announces retirement

    Yeah, it's not like Brown's career started to derail with him being cut by NE. It started well before that... while he was still in PIT, actually. Think about it... he was BY FAR the best at his position in the entire league, and PIT wanted nothing to do with him. That tells me all I need to know. He then signs with OAK (a team who DESPERATELY need WR help at the time), and they quickly come to the same conclusion. He's a cancer. Then, NE says what the heck, we need a WR, let's give him a shot, and all is well in the world. For about two weeks. Strike three. Brown is lucky he's not in jail for almost killing people in that furniture off the balcony episode. He needs professional help.
  5. 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.
  6. 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.
  7. 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."
  8. Maybe Allen is better than I’m giving him credit for. The rest? Meh.
  9. 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.
  10. 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.
  11. 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.
  12. Gronk to the Bucs

    Agreed.
  13. Mock draft, anyone?

    If you need my help, I’d prefer to do MIN, and if needed, throw another team my way.
  14. 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).
  15. Mock draft, anyone?

    Just saw this. I'm in for whatever.
