  1. Who else is 0-2?

    My team in league 2 below is just plain awful. 0-2 with low scores each week. I'm not panicking yet but I'm getting close....
  2. Cadillac's great day came because MIN stacked the line to stop a short run and the TB OL cracked a seem into open territory with only 1:34 or so remaining in the game. Cadillac looks nice, but I think he was a bit lucky last week. BUF D is awesome and will limit him I think. So, I would start more experienced S. Jackson and Kev. Jones against lesser D's
  3. Need WR depth..

    Of those, I would say Bettis is the most expendable, but none none of those receivers really seems worth it. If K. Johnson is Key Johnson, perhaps, as he looks like the go to @ DAL right now. I wouldn't even consider it for any of the others. K. Curtis has a lot of competition for balls thrown his way and Ferguson is now the #2 in GB but they're not looking so hot. The other guys are unlikely to produce much..
  4. wow ! Manning!

    Manning would have looked even better had he taken just a tiny bit off that bomb to Harrison in the 2Q. Nobody within 20 yards of Marvin on that play..should have been an easy 6. Thanks to my slugs S. Jackson, C. Martin, L. Coles, A. Boldin, and J. Brown I still lost w/ Manning yesterday.
  5. Dallas Clark Questionable?

    As a Manning owner, I'm hoping that Dallas plays. They'll need him against the Ravens.
  6. Priest need a priest?

    Priest is more of a risk to get nicked up than others due to age and past history. However, there's no reason to assume he won't be an elite FF back for the first half of the season. After that, who knows...
  7. Jamal Lewis - Week 1

    Nice read yo. I have been kicking myself a bit for drafting Jamal ahead of Dillon, but I don't really have a choice as to whether or not to play him (besides putting Lee Evans in instead as a flex - not) and here's hoping you are correct in your analysis come Sunday night. My take is Jamal will likely get 15-20 carries but his YPC may be down a bit if his ankle and feet are bothering him. I just hope they have a couple of shots goalline on 1st and 2nd down...then Jamal should produce.
  8. Ladanian Traded in our League

    I'm not sure why so many leagues are so quick to veto trades. Unless your dealing with obvious collusion, it is up to the two parties making a trade to determine fair worth for their "property" vs. what someone else is offering. Not all trades are fair, but commissioners and other league members need to take some of the opinion out of the veto process. IMO, most trades should be approved...(agian unless it's horribly one-sided) In this case I agree that the guy getting LT is psyched. I'd rather be on that end of the trade. But the other guy is getting two starting RB's and obviously feels he needs them... so different strategies that may or may not work.
  9. undecisive of who to Start at third WR

    BTW, nice avatar! Agree with Grendel and aaron. Amazing receivers for a 12 team league. I'm guessing your RB's are thin....
  10. Your favorite #2 WR

    Wayne is pretty much a #1 this year so he should be off that list. Of the rest, I'd say Driver, Lelie, Bruce and T.J. have the best chance to be a solid #2, with Porter in the mix too (but his hammy concerns me)
  11. Help me....WDIS

    Curtis probably has the best chance to score.
  12. curry worth starting?

    Tough call. I'd lean towards Moulds as NE has a stout secondary....
  13. WDIS @ RB

    Jackson Jones Westbrook Taylor = unknown how he wil respond to limited work this spring. Let him do what he can this weak and see for next week. Arrington = rookie. Same thing...
  14. Urgent Trade Dispute

    If both parties agree to this trade it should be approved by your commissioner and go through, regardless of the viability on D. Hall. This is not collusion but it is basically a 2 for 1 deal. So what? You get a top shelf Receiver and the other guy gets a starting RB and a decent #2 or 3 receiver. Seems fair to me.
  15. a randy moss trade

    I would guess he will not accept the old 2 for 1 unless his other receivers are incredibly weak. 2 for 1's rarely benefit the guy gettign two players, particularly in the same position.
  16. Rate my team.......

    I'd say you have a very strong team for a 10-man league. Excellent RB depth. Very solid #1-3 receivers w/ some upside on your #3 and QB is probably your weakness as you likely waited until later to get Plummer, who is a solid value later in the draft. The rate my team posts are a pet peeve of the veterans here as they smack of "validate me please". I find that if the thread lists rounds in which players were selected and asks "How can I get better?" listing waiver wire options and possible trade thoughts, you might get better feedback. Simply "Rate my team" can lead to what you see here.....
  17. "Look at my Roster" postings

    I agree that there is a large degree of people looking for validation when they post a "Rate My Draft" but I also agree with the thought that if done correctly (i.e. listing scoring, round taken etc as stated before) these can provide a small mock draft helper prior to a draft and advice whould be sought on possible ways to upgrade through trade and waivers. No question these should be limited to the Advice Forum....
  18. WDIS @ Flex

    You might think about W. Parker as an option too...
  19. Coles with Pennington or T. Green

    +1. You likely drafted T. Green ahead of Penny for a reason....
  20. Trent Green goes under the knife

    "He will be taken off blood thinner before every game.." ?!?! ....hmmmmmm
  21. Who should win this week 1 matchup?

    After a quick glance, I'd say team one (your team) has the advantage week 1. good luck
  22. Trade Advise

    In a keeper league, that's not a bad trade. Arrington is young and Tiki is not, so Arrington may be the better long term RB anyway... And Vick has some long term upside too. Plus you have Portis. I'd probably make that deal, depending on your starting requirements (do you have a flex?)
  23. Not so sure......

    ouch.... I would guess you traded about 500 total fantasy points for about 250->300....but what's your scoring system, starting requirements and roster look like?
  24. Would you take Davis/Lewis 1/2?

    Same boat here...drafted J. Lewis and K. Jones in one of my leagues, both of whom are on bye week 3. I'll just have to start CuMar and L. Johnson that week and take my chances OR come up with some trade...
