  1. Neil Young quiz - 85% (17/20) Beatles quiz - 75% (15/20) Zeppelin quiz - 70% (14/20)
  2. This is easy...New England is a lock. There's no safer pick. BUF is not going to sweep them.
  3. And.... Flipper Anderson STILL the greatest receiver of all time.
  4. I learned my lesson with him the last 2 years and avoided in every league.
  5. I'm in quite a few leagues with Henry and I can tell you, he basically ignores the noise and goes BPA. His skill, imo, is that he doesn't try to predict injury or outsmart the stats, he simply picks value and BPA. You'll see guys like Edelman and Decker, Forte and Ware. I'll let him reveal anything more if he chooses. He must have 50+ teams. Hell, I have 20 myself. Henry is a good dude for sure.
  6. And I'm the owner he paid for ASJ! I still think ASJ can be a TE1 but it might take a couple more years.
  7. TA is practically undraftable in non bestball leagues, imo. Way too inconsistent to start comfortably.
  8. Everyone has their predictions for Barnidge but to drop him outright is insane unless TE is not a mandatory position and/or your league has very limited bench space and you already have a reliable TE1.
  9. Fustercluck! Is that the term you wanted to use?
  10. Is there a way to confirm my membership for 2016? I have been able to login all summer until today. When I login, it doesn't say anything but keeps loading the login page. I swear I was paid and covered for 2016. Thanks
  11. Woo Hoo!! Hyde TD!!!
  12. Too early to say. The optimist in me (I also have some teams with Charles) would like to think they ride Charles while they can. He will fall off a cliff eventually, why not get everything you can until it's over THEN use Ware. However, if Ware has a few more games like that in a row - which is actually not very likely, imo - Charles might be a glorified back up. But really, it's too soon to tell. I don't feel comfortable making a definitive call on that just yet. Like I said, cautiously optimistic, they're saving Charles for week 5+.
  13. I would like to see Carlos Hyde have a big game. He's the one player I'm most invested in because he was an insane value. There were drafts where I got him in round 6 and maybe later. So yeah, Hyde. Let's get it on!
  14. I saw this and thought to myself, "oh, he looked good tonight, let me check his stats". I wasn't intently watching the game but the few times I recall seeing him get the ball, he looked decent, obviously the had very few targets, so that played a role. I'm guessing he'll be frustrating like last year where he puts up a very few big games with a lot of duds.
  15. None that I can think of either. There's a first for everything. McCown clearly had a thing for Barnidge and with him back starting, I don't see how Barnidge doesn't continue to be his top guy, especially with 2 new WRs (Coleman, Gordon) where chemistry will need to be nurtured.
  16. I drafted Barnidge in a few leagues because he was an incredible value. I didn't have him ranked as high this year due to his uncertain situation with RG3 plus the fact that last year was a career year at age 30. I drafted him on value and upside and I'm much more optimistic now that he has his QB back from last year. Gordon is out 3 more weeks and hasn't played in over a year. Coleman is a rookie who still has a lot to learn. With McCown, I'd immediately bump Barnidge back to top 5 status. I can't see one argument against it. Guys drop passes. I'm not worried about 2 dropped passes from a QB he has no chemistry with and who is now out of the picture for at least 8 weeks. Barnidge now tier 2 TE with Reed, imo.
  17. Stevegrab - did u watch Barnidge play last year? He caught everything in sight and looked like a very good TE to my eyes. Why it took him until age 30 to breakout, I'm not sure. I wouldn't be too worried about his drops. He'll be elite status soon with McCown back under center. Maybe RG3 throws a weird ball?
  18. Barnidge should be fine with McCown back under center. At least that's what I'm hoping for.
  19. While I hate seeing anyone injured, this Barnidge owner is very relieved.
  20. That's good to know. Thankfully, I only drafted Dez in 2/10 managed leagues and my rationale was that a new QB would lock on to the stud WR. Wish I had the knowledge you just mentioned above. It never felt right drafting him though, so very happy I'm not all in. It sounds like you agree with my ff outlook though. I should be selling Dez.
  21. Agreed. From a purely football fan perspective and more specifically, a cowboy fan, I'm with you. From a fantasy perspective. I'm selling ASAP.
  22. Sure, anything is possible. Things can change. I can't predict the future. I can only speculate from what I saw today and if I were a Cowboy fan, I'd be worried. I'll be trying to trade Dez in the 1 league where I can. Thankfully, only have him in 2 meaningful leagues. I hesitantly drafted Dez to begin with and today's performance does not make me feel good. I know you're a homer and I applaud any optimism you may have and I don't blame you either. They almost won today despite all of the challenges they faced. That is something to be optimistic about. I'm coming strictly from a fantasy perspective, but I will try to trade Dez this week. My gut says run, don't walk.
  23. I watched most of the DAL game and Dak did not look very good. He's a game manager, so he's not 'bad' per se, but he's also not good. This offense is going get worse too now that there's film on him. Dak likes the dink and dunk. I saw a lot of Witten and Beasley and that is not good for the DAL offense. Zeke looked bad too. This team is going to miss Romo.
  24. I got lucky as well with Allen. I actually think he was one of the most underrated players this season but thankfully I didn't draft him anywhere that mattered. It's quite a shame and I feel super bad for the guy though. The good thing for dynasty owners is that he's still very young, so his long term value remains unchanged, imo.
  25. Every year is different for me. If we're using the last 15 years as a time frame, I'd say I've waited on QB more often than not. This season I pretty much went QB in 4-6 in every draft because I was able to get Cam, Rodgers, Luck, Wilson in those rounds. I basically go BPA and value, so if when there's obvious tier 1 talent in rounds 4+, I'm all over it. Same reason why I have Doug Martin and Carlos Hyde on what seems like all 20 of my teams this season. When you can get those guys in rounds 4 and 5, you don't ask, you just draft them. I never subscribe to any one thing in FF. It's always about value and BPA.
