  1. Our huddle league is looking for a replacement owner for an orphaned team. We have some urgency as we'd planned to begin the rookie draft 7/22. This team was managed poorly and will be a challenge, but you will be able to make it what you want through early draft picks this year and likely next. This is not a here today gone tomorrow league. We were one of the first huddle leagues, have been around for 17 years with competitive ownership group, and if you search huddle leagues forums you'll find we have the most historic posts of any 'other' huddle league (25,000 under Fantasy Dreams Dynasty League). This league has basic scoring, not PPR, not IDP. We have 26 player rosters, typical flex options, and unique open bid/FA process using annual credit allotment. We have $30 annual dues, and use LeagueSafe and MFL (although hosting options have been an annual discussion). The orphaned team has pick 1.3 in our four round rookie draft. Free Agency opens immediately after that. The team can be found at http://fddl.org/rosters.html under the name Panthers. League rules can be reviewed at http://fddl.org/constitution.html If you are up for the challenge in a league that will be around to see your efforts pay off, shoot me a PM and tell us a little about yourself and your dynasty experience. Thanks for your interest,
  2. Our league is looking for a replacement owner for an orphaned team. We've been around for 17 years with competitive ownership group. This is a 12 team dynasty, basic scoring, not PPR, not IDP. We have 26 player rosters, typical flex options, and unique open bid/FA process using annual credit allotment. We have $30 annual dues, and use LeagueSafe and MFL (although hosting options have been an annual discussion). There hasn't been much action in recent years over the offseason, but trading is open year round other than week 10-16 blackout. The orphaned team has pick 1.3 in our four round rookie draft, which will take place sometime in July. Free Agency opens immediately after that. The team can be found at http://fddl.org/rosters.html under the name Panthers. League rules can be reviewed at http://fddl.org/constitution.html If this looks like a league that might interest you, shoot me a PM and tell us a little about yourself and your dynasty experience. Being completely up front, I'll want to involve the league in the search process as we've done previously, and it may be a challenge to quickly reach 1-2 hibernating owners. In short, you patience is appreciated. Anyone reading this website no doubt has the enthusiasm and knowledge, but getting the right fit for our league is my main goal. I'm hoping to get a few responses and then work with my trusted co-commish to make a recommendation. Thanks for your interest,
  3. We have an opening in an existing 12-team dynasty league. This league has 26-player rosters, no IDP, no PPR, and has normal standard performance scoring. Several flex-option line-ups. We've been in existance since 1999. You must be ready to pay $30 dues and take part in a 4-round rookie draft immediately (we're currently being held up by awol owner). We operate on a credit-based FA system, which opens immediately after the draft. This team can use some work, but it does possess 1.3, 1.4, 2.3, 3.3, 4.3 in the coming rookie draft - making it a nice rebuild opportunity. Here is the available team: Eli Manning Josh Freeman Matt Cassel Willis McGahee Fred Taylor Darren Sproles Glen Coffee Javon Ringer Aaron Brown Kevin Jones Michael Crabtree Chad Ochocinco Devery Henderson Deon Butler Santana Moss Jerricho Cotchery Devin Thomas Jabbar Gaffney Louis Murphy David Clowney Dallas Clark Jermichael Finley Kevin Boss Adam Vinatieri Neil Rackers Cowboys Broncos For full league rules, please visit this link. If interested, please let us know of your interest along with a brief description of your FF background to me at mnnightowl2@yahoo.com I'd be circulating responses to a few league members for a decision, so I appreciate your patience if I take a bit of time to respond. We're trying to do this asap.
  4. nj.com: PLAYER;;GRADE;;THE SKINNY Ramses Barden;;B+;;The grade is fitting because he's been more than just big so far. Domenik Hixon;;B;;Not as dominant as he was in last year's camp, but still solid. Derek Hagan;;A-;;A lot of people forgot about the former third-round pick, but he's reminded them of his ability lately. Mario Manningham;;C-;;Had a couple of bad mental errors recently and didn't finish a few makeable plays downfield. Sinorice Moss;;B;;Last year in camp, he had a lot of drops. He's cleaned those up now and has been open downfield. Hakeem Nicks;;Incomplete;;His absence hasn't helped matters, but he expects to be back on the field tomorrow. Steve Smith;;B;;Had a few uncharacteristic drops but made some real nice plays before being sidelined with a knee injury. David Tyree;;D;;Practice has never been his thing; he's a gamer. But he better start practicing like he plays.

  6. Does anyone know why the name "Pierre Thomas" can not be found in any of these daily reports? Is he that irrelevant?
  7. We've lost an owner in a 12-team dynasty league. Normal entry is $30, but both new owners will pay 1/2 off @ $15 for year 1. This league has 26-player rosters, no IDP, no PPR, and has normal standard performance scoring. Several flex-option line-ups. We've been in existance since 1999, and have had only had 4 openings through the years which we've been fortunate to fill with dedicated owners. We're stalling Free Agency temporarily to keep a replacement on an even field. The teams up for grabs are the following: Team 1 *Tony Romo *Travis Henry *Jamal Lewis *Julius Jones *Brandon Jackson *Selvin Young *Mike Bell *Chris Johnson *Jerome Harrison *Tim Hightower *Jalen Parmele *BenJarvus Green-Ellis *Donald Driver *Wes Welker *Donte Stallworth *Brandon Stokely *Ronald Curry *Kevin Curtis *Sinorice Moss *Sam Hurd *Robert Meachem *Randy McMichael *Chris Cooley *Tony Scheffler *Lawrence Tynes *Stephen Gostkowski *Justin Medlock *Patriots *Seahawks Team 2 *Eli Manning *Rex Grossman *Damon Huard *Brodie Croyle *Trent Edwards *Brian Brohm *Chad Henne *Michael Vick *Willis McGahee *Fred Taylor *Kevin Jones *Ryan Torain *Nick Goings *Michael Robinson *DeDe Dorsey *Chad Johnson *Reggie Wayne *Jerricho Cotchery *Brandon Jones *Eric Parker *Arnaz Battle *Ashley Lelie *Derek Hagan *Donnie Avery *Jerome Simpson *Jordy Nelson *Eddie Royal *Lavelle Hawkins *Will Franklin *Jason Witten *Owen Daniels *Adam Vinatieri *Neil Rackers *Cowboys *Broncos $30 annual entry, 100% payout, travelling trophy. If this looks like the right league for you, email interest and desired team, along with a brief description of your FF experience to mnnightowl2@yahoo.com

  9. I don't understand this one bit. Reportedly, Fitzgerald negotiated a contract that assures him $33 million over the next two years. He has said he will do anything he can to help the club, but asking him to take less than what he's owed in guarantees AND locking himself up for 6 seasons to make it a manageable cap hit is putting the guy over a barrell. He could get the $33 million and then get a totally new deal that probably assures him another $30 mill in guarantees in 2010. But he's 'showing character issues" not accepting $20 million in guarantees and being shackled for the next 6 years? The guy should be considered for sainthood if he did that.
  10. I'm just throwing this out there because I see this response all the time. And actually, I'm not necessarily focusing on MBIII/JJ... the same observation is true for other RBBC situations like Foster/DW and FT/MJD. However, for argument's sake, forget what you know about LT and how he's performed as a featured back: I'm curious how you think a tandom like Tomlinson/Turner would perform splitting carries? I'd say SD would absolutely be a top-10 rushing team, perhaps slightly less productive than using LT as a featured back. That said, would the mere fact that such a tandem proved to be successful, in of itself, dictate that San Diego is definitively better off sharing carries than feeding LT the ball as a featured RB? I'd argue that many NFL teams could be successful splitting carries among RBs, but in the end most choose to give the ball to the more productive player. For some reason, Dallas chooses not to, and no one really knows how that may be impacting them negatively. IMHO there's no basis to believe they wouldn't be equally successful, or moreso, giving the more productive player more carries. They could in fact be setting themselves back by giving JJ 10-15 carries at 3.9 YPC, despite their relative success considering that sandbag. So yeah, maintaining status quo could be a productive move. Maybe its not the best move, however.
  11. Ah, if 27 is the right number I'm guessing the '1' was just a typo.
  12. I'm curious how you project 17 TDs? I'm not suggesting he'll get more, I'm more curious on the method used to get 17 when he has 5 TDs through 3 games.
  13. He is? Is there a link to that?
  14. I'd say a token threat to report him to his state's gaming commissioner should prompt a quick refund. I believe what he is doing would be considered gaming in most jurisdictions, which is why most commissioners don't take a cut of the action or try to participate themselves without paying equal consideration [and certainly aren't stupid enough to broadcast it if they are, in some small informal league].
  15. So basically, you are calling Barry Alvarez a liar? He said Calhoun was the best RB to ever come out of his program.
