  1. McKinnon Injured

    It's not a matter if the rushing attack will be that good or not, but rather the value you can get each backup for over what everyone else "paid" for McKinnon. Starting RB in the 2nd versus last couple rounds or waiver wire. Plus, if you were able to pick up one or the other, it's never bad to have an extra starting RB on the bench, or use them as trade bait.
  2. Which players are on all your teams?

    Stefon Diggs, Mark Ingram, Trey Burton
  3. LeVeon Bell

    I have the #2 pick in one of my leagues, and this "holdout" is killing me. Bell was really slow out of the gates last year too because of this BS!!! I know Gurley will go 1, so I'm left to choose from Bell or Zek, and the longer the holdout goes, the more I'm leaning towards Zek. Dude, just get in camp and sign the tender!
  4. Mock Draft Sites

    ESPN has mocks as well, but they are a pain in the #$%^ to use trying to find your type of league and a slot open. Have also used FantasyPros & Fantasy Football Calculator. My concern with using other sites is that most of my drafts are on ESPN, and the ADP's / Rankings there are different from most other sites, so it's hard to make the direct translation when you move from one to another.
  5. Owner ghosted halfway through draft

    If he ghosted, then tough @#$% on him IMO. There's no way he can expect to come back and have you change picks after the fact. I would throw him out of the league with zero option to return and would try and get someone else to take over the team (possibly at a discount entry fee if needed). If you can't find a replacement, maybe the team is managed by committee during the season. Make sure there's a starting line up, and only pick up players when required to make a starting line up
  6. Who has been here since the 90s?

    Joined the forums back in 2001 a week before the twin towers fell.
  7. Andrew Luck "Good to go"

    From everything I've been reading and hearing, other players don't want to work out next to him as Luck came into camp completely ripped! Hilton said he was "Crossfit Ripped", and didn't want to work out next to him as it made him look bad. So, while I think that while they are being super cautious, I really don't think his arm strength has diminished. I think he's gotten stronger and leaner.
  8. Jets Trade up

    Im not complaining!!!
  9. Who's actually playing Rodgers???

    I got lucky to pick him up a few weeks back off the waiver wire, but had been rolling with Wentz up till this point. I'm always a big believer in ASYS (always start your studs), but while Rodgers is a stud QB when healthy, I can decide if his first game back is worth rolling the dice. Thanks for the input though. Helps!!
  10. I have Rodgers, and I SOOOOOO want to play him, but it's the first week of my playoffs and I'm scared that he's going to start, and get put out well before the game is over. The Panthers secondary can be beat, but more afraid of how much Carolina will be coming after Rodgers. You know they are going to blitz, and blitz, and blitz. Even if they don't get to him, my fear is that after 8 weeks of not playing, they will completely throw off his timing, and he'll be a little too trigger happy to really put up QB1 points. My other option unfortunately is Nick Foles who's going against the hapless Giants. Need to know what confidence level everyone has in playing Rodgers, versus someone like Foles.
  11. Pick 2 of 3 RB

    Its 1/2 pt ppr. Thanks
  12. Pick 2 of 3 RB

    Devonta Freeman vs Minnesota (just coming back from concussion) Christian McCaffrey vs New Orleans.(slight shoulder issue) Alvin Kamara vs Carolina. Kamara has been hot, so definitely leaning towards him as 1 of the two options.
  13. Davante Adams

    He should have been tossed from the game, and should also have a multi-game suspension IMO. He was wrapped up, completely defenseless, and the only part of his really showing was his head, which Trevathan took off. I pray the kid is alright!!!
  14. With Elliott's trial coming up next week, there's a remote chance he could potentially start serving his suspension yet this year. Both McFadden and Morris are available in a couple of my leagues and I've got fodder I can drop to pick them up this week "Just in case" something happens next week. I've heard reports that McFadden is the guy, but he was completely inactive last week, which leads me to believe Morris will be the guy. Realistically, it would probably be a combination of both. Any Dallas homers know the real story?
  15. Help picking 2 RB's

    Lynch & Cohen. Never know what's going to happen with the Pat's backfield on any given game.
