  1. Dynasty, want 1st pick

    At this point I get that you guys aren't going to agree with my offer ideas. This is more about conversion at this point & diving into thought process & valuations of players. I have to say at this point I am surprised, especially on a Huddle site, how much people are buying into the NAME hype. Anyone who has read Mr Dorey's book, The Next Level. Name hype is always the LAST consideration. I guess a Heisman trophy winner has never gone bust? Or a rookie that looked like 1 of the next big things at his position? RG3 fits BOTH of those items. We can talk up all we want about how good Barkley is. How he is a generational player. He is but player in a TEAM sport. Even the best players can be limited by their TEAM. How much better do you think AP's #'s could have been had all those years in MIN he had either a QB or the QB had WR's worth a damn? If he hadn't been constantly facing stacked boxes? Eli is at the end of his career & lets honest. He is obviously declining at this point. What happens if the NYG next QB isn't worth a damn? Or how about OBJ? Whom seems to be wearing thin on NYG brass. We have seen high end players be shipped out before because they cannot fit in with the team. The possibility is real that NYG pass game could take a serious step back in the next 2/3 years. And that is ZERO to do with the player being talked about. Something said player can do nothing about. I play in a 12 team division IDP league. Which means each round of the draft pulls 12 players off the board. The draft isn't just rookies but also any free agents can be drafted. With 3 starters among 3 IDP's that is not 1 starter among DEF but 9. Meaning there are more positions to fill. The flex is RB/WR/TE. With all that in mind I find it nuts to imply that two 1st picks are not sufficient for the 1st pick. They could possible pick of a 1st tier player & a 2nd tier player with those picks. And even if it is two 2nd tier players, the weekly output of 2 players who fall just outside that top end is going to be more than ANY ONE single stud can provide. Also another fact that stands, considering his team, regardless of which 2 WR's are included in the deal I would be sending him 4 players that are automatic starters on his team. Lee is the unquestioned WR1 in JAC now with Robinson & Hurns gone. And if I send Funchess, I really don't see him taking dive just because CAR drafted a WR. His RB & DL are CRAP to be blunt & his WR are not much better. Even if the combined avg of all 4 guys I send him is only 8 pts per game that is 32 points a game. NO RB, EVEN A STUD WILL MATCH THAT - PERIOD. And I will send him a mid round pick (my R3) also along with Kizer if he wants the insurance on Rodgers. I find it insane to hear that all of that is not worth 1 single pick. And now lets look at this from my point view. I am going to guess what everyone is going to say is worth his 1.1 is probable nothing less than my 6th overall pick as I am sure I will hear the 10th get laughed at & either Gurley, Hopkins or McCaffery. A deal like that does LITTLE MORE THAN ZERO to OVERALL IMPROVE my team. All it amounts to is a swap out of a proven player for a rookie. The only gain I make from it is maybe a few years from the player, provided some career ruining/ending injury does happen to him & a likely negligible overall points improvement for the season. I am offering a significant amount of depth from team in the proposed offer. A deal that could easily leave me chasing holes if a couple of things bounce the wrong way & giving him plug in starters that combined will give him more points that ANY single stud could sans a QB - QB score heavy league. I am not going to make a deal where I do not more than swap out players & give up a R1 pick to swap out. Honestly, what sense does that make for me? Again I am not going off here. Just making conversion & hoping people can at least understand what I am saying & my thought process here. I don't believe my line of thought is illogical or ridiculous.
  2. Dynasty, want 1st pick

    Well obviously 1.1 pick. And seeing as we all have to have 5 picks his 2nd round which unfortunately being snake style is 2.12. And he only has 2 players I'm remotely interested in. Aaron Rodgers & JJ Watt. And honestly I'm not interested in either. I don't need to chase a QB & he is highly unlikely to give him up & Watt is looking like he is an injury risk at this point. He literally has no other players I'm interested in.
  3. Dynasty, want 1st pick

    OK what if it is Lee & Funchess? Two WR with plenty left in the tank. Dunlap who won't be 30 till after this season & Craig Robertson who will be 31 after this season. Along with Jamaal Williams who is only 23. That 2 players in the later parts of their careers & 3 players still in their prime. I'm having a difficult time not seeing that as a reasonable offer. Both CAR & JAC have/are becoming solid offensive teams. As I said Lee is the #1 WR on JAC with Robinson & Burns gone & he was given a new big contract. CAR drafted some help for the pass game. It should open holes for everyone as teams can't go after all the weapons at the same time.
  4. Dynasty, want 1st pick

    Please excuse the getting worked up. I've dealt with/seen so much snarky stuff on social media lately, I'm just expecting it constantly. I am seeing from people are saying, I'm going to need a different approach on this to make it worth it to him. To be honest his team is full of holes & what he really needs to do is make a deal not just for 1 stud but a deal to get several solid players at various positions. One stud via trade or draft isn't going to overcome the holes all over his team. He needs help at RB WR TE DL LB & DB. One stud ain't going to overcome all of that. I'm considering this.I will my included draft up to my 3/10 & packing Edelman/M Lee-now the #1 WR in JAC, RB Jamaal Williams GB - he has Montgomery & Williams mostly the more valuable of the 2 & DL Carlos Dunlop for his #1 pick. As he has Rodgers I will tell him he can have Kizer also if he wants him. I'm going to cut if he doesn't go in trade anyway. We start 3 at each D position & his best DL was ranked 72nd last year. I think this will be my opening offer. If he doesn't take it I will sub Funchess for Edelman, as much as I don't want to trade him. I can also sub maybe LB Craig Robertson in place of Dunlop. I would be willing in the right combination work TE Hooper into the deal also. However I would prefer if I can to keep Robertson & Hooper out of the deal as I am targeting another trade using them for it. Bottom line is he needs solid players at multiple positions over 1 stud. He will fill more holes & see a bigger points return than 1 stud could possibly do given what he is dealing with.
  5. Keeper help

    It is hard to go wrong with 2 top choice RB. And if need be later in the season, top RB can bring top trade value.
  6. Dynasty Kamra Trade

    I have to agree with keep Kamara
  7. Dynasty league use LB to move up

    Anyone? I'm thinking that 3/2 pick for an LB & my 5th is in the ballpark. Swapping 3rd picks which is only a move of 8 spots I feel is too small a return in a league were with just 1 backup LB per team means 48 LB are off the board.
  8. 12 team PPR IDP Dynasty league position limits 5 round mini draft Start 3 LB limit 6 His LB Darron Lee NYJ, Mychal Hendricks PHI, Jaylon Smith DAL, Jatavis Brown LAC His picks outside of R1 are 2/1 2/11 3/2 My LB KJ Wright SEA, Danny Trevathan CHI, Mark Barron LAC, Craig Robertson NO, Anthony Barr MIN, Mason Foster My picks outside of R1 are 2/3 3/10 5/10 He could use some LB help & I don't mind trading one. I'm thinking of offering Robertson & my 5th to him. I'm thinking asking for his 2/1 is probably too much. Would the 2/11 pick be too much too? Does he net me only a 3.2? I just don't feel as strong in gauging the IDP side as I do offense. I don't have a 4th & would like to make some moves so I'm done by either 2nd or 3rd round. I already have two 1st round picks
  9. Dynasty, want 1st pick

    There is no Damn need for insults. This is the deal that turns people off from the hobby. People who feel the need to insult others for asking a Damn question. If you have nothing to add, which you didn't add anything new, just move along. I'm so sick of people who can't respond without insulting others on social media & forums.
  10. Dynasty, want 1st pick

    I'm just legitimately surprised at how little value people are giving Edelman in a PPR league. Also how willing people would (as based on the responses of value assigned) be to give up a proven stud just for a draft position for an unproven player. Even the most hyped players can not pan out. If not for their performance but also landing in a bad situation. I apologize if it seems like I'm going off on people. Not my intent. Like I said, it's surprise.
  11. Dynasty, want 1st pick

    I love how people think in a full point per league a Brady possession receiver good for around 100 catches (keep in mind Amendola is gone) is "scrapes". At this point the other guy doesn't have deal at WR & is the one with actual scrapes. And face the truth while we can rave about how good upcoming rookies are, they are unproven & no guarantee. Like no top draft pick ever went bust or was only OK. I'm not giving up one of the absolute PROVEN players for UNPROVEN draft pick. A "stud" is a PROVEN player as far as I am concerned. I don't care how much hype is around them. Look at RG3 for just one example of a top pick going bust.
  12. Dynasty, want 1st pick

    That is an interesting take. I hadn't thought about CAR taking a WR. I am willing to go pretty hard after that 1st overall. Forgot to mention I also worked a trade last year & got the 6th overall pick too. So if I pull this deal off I would 3 picks in 1st round & with it being snake style draft I would have 4 of my 5 picks within the first 15 picks. I have no 4th round currently. And I might be able to move an LB based on a team need & either nab myself 1 more 2nd round pick or at least swap spots for earlier 3rd pick.
  13. Dynasty, want 1st pick

    Don't need RB. Have Gurly & McCaffery. Scrapes! A Brady possession WR good for around 100 catches in a full point per league. Along with another up & coming WR & TE that despite what is called a disappointing season finished inside top 20 & plays on team that I think threw the most TD to TE the season before or close to it. He has serious need at both WR & TE. I am a huge Gates fan but he is nothing more than the scrapes at this point. Anytime Reed is playing Davis is 2nd fiddle. As I said I have Cam & Kizer along with Cousins at QB. And lets not forget people tend to perk up when you start talking a Patriot player.
  14. 12 team DYNASTY league Scoring Sack-3, Forced Fumble-1, Tackke-1, Assist Tackle-0.5, most other scoring typical Should I drop LB Anthony Barr MIN for LB Matt Judon BAL? Barr seems to get ranked high but doesn't really produce too much. Should I roll the dice on Judon?
  15. I think with NE focussing on stopping Brown & Bell it is going to lead to opportunity for JuJu
  16. Please help figure out who

    I really could use some input on this please. I'm twisted up on who to play & who to sit. There is reasons to both play & sit most of these guys.
  17. PLEASE HELP, will return the favor. 12 Team PPR IDP Dynasty league, Week 2 of Playoffs Scoring - All TD=6, Full point per reception & per completed pass every 25 yards passing/10 yards rush/rec=1.0 Being that there is IDP individual players get credited for punt/kickoff return yards-every 10 yards=1.0 For purpose of this thread the starting positions QB-1 RB-2 WR-2 TE-1 Flex (RB/WRT)-1 I feel I have the issue that everyone hopes to be facing. More good choices than I have slots to play QB- Newton, Cousins, Kizer I think this one is the easiest choice here. Given the very favorable match up it has to be Newton. However as you will see I could be very CAR heavy RB- Gurley, McCaffrey, J Steward CAR, J Williams GB, Perine Of course I start Gurley. McCaffrey is a top 10 RB & GB is weak both against the RB & WR so I feel he should be RB2. Not jumping on the Steward train after only having his 4th double digit game of the season.Williams does have a tough match up against CAR but Rodgers looks like he is going to play & CAR will have to respect the pass far more than with Huntley in there. Let me jump to TE- Kelce, Hooper, Easy choice of Kelce on this & Hooper not even a flex consideration at this time Now here is where it gets more complicated WR- Hopkins, Funchess-another CAR player, M Lee JAC, Smith-Schuster, Lockett SEA, C Davis TEN So now I have 2 WR positions & 1 flex that I can play my choice of RB/WR/TE at. Hopkins obviously WR1. Funchess faces GB-weak against the WR but would actually make me 4 players deep on OFF with CAR as I have Gano at K. Also rolling K Short from CAR at the IDP DL spot just as point of reference. Lee faces HOU who also sucks against the WR. Locket faces LAR who are very strong against WR. Lockett though is actually 12th among WR because even when he gets very little receiving yards, the kick/punt yards usually give him strong games. Only 3 games this year has he been single digits. Smith-Schuster faces NE who also suck against the WR. But what is left for him with PIT Killer B's playing off the hook right now? At this point I consider Davis a non factor. He is more of my speculative stash. So who do I roll at WR2? Funchess, Lee, Smith-Schuster, Locket? And then including RB Williams, who do I roll at the Flex.
  18. Matt Ryan/Jordy Nelson

    Other opinions? Only got 2, which were different.
  19. 10 team 2 QB reception points league Scoring Pass TD-4, all other-6, 25 pass yard-1, every 5 completion-2.5, 400+ pass yards-3, 10 rush/rec yard-1, every 5 receptions-3, 100-199 yard rush/rec-1, 200+ yard rush/rec-5 50+ yard TD-1 point bonus Start QB-2 RB-2 WR-2 TE-1 Flex(RB/WR/TE)-1 QB- Rivers, Goff, Matt Ryan remember play 2 I made the call & benched Ryan last week. Do I bench Goff this given the rather unfavorable match up & go with Ryan who has a great match up. Also gives me possible double dip having Julio RB- I'm rolling M Gordon & J Williams GB. My other RB- Darwka, J Allen BAL, Cohen WR- I'm rolling Julio & Fitzgerald. My other WR- J Nelson, R Anderson NYJ, Smith-Schuster, TE- I'm rolling H Henry, have J Cook If Rodger plays, its an easy Jordy at flex right? Smith-Schuster has a great match up. I think Schuster is the easy choice if Rodgers doesn't play. Don't trust Anderson with McCown out & can't see playing Cook or any of my other RB at flex over Schuster at the flex.
  20. Perine OR L. Murray PPR

    For sheer opportunity & likely volume, I'm leaning Perine on this. He may not get a lot per rush but should get plenty of touches & build some yards that way. And should add some points with 3/4 catches.
  21. Matt Ryan/Jordy Nelson

    OK 2 different opinions on the QB's, anyone else?
