  1. I personally would not to deal with him being so fragile.....he wasnt even a full time starter last year and got banged up. Also......I wish I could pull some posts from last year when people went nuts about Bellichecks antics with the injury report. I know for sure that I would not want to deal with it every week and not knowing wether he will suit up or not !!!!





    Truer words have never been spoken. I had a dinged up Dillon in '05 and Bellichech screwed with me almost weekly. :D Avoid Maroney and watch some other sucker yell at his TV :D

  2. I voted Edge, but would rather target T. Jones to partner with LT. I think he is the most garuanteed because the Jets ran the ball rather well last year and Jones should get most of that. He is motivated and generally healthy. Will he get enough TD's is the big ?


    Benson has a good OL to run behind and Da Bears will run the ball, but he just looks slow to me and is the biggest injury risk of the 3


    Edge may do a little better this year, but don't kid yourself, the Cards are still a bad rushing team


    Portis would have been my choice if I thought I could nail down Betts. Like you I am picking first and have done many mock drafts. I have discovered it's very hard to get Betts and Turner for a reasonable price. It either ruins your RB depth, or messes up your starting QB and/or TE pics, or both. I think LT and Portis must be cuffed but two middle rounders is too much

  3. Bolden is not all that, look at his numbers and you will see that Evans has outperformed him by quite a bit as of late. I also think the Cards will pass less with the new coach.


    You guys may be forgetting that WR's last much longer than RB's and can be valued higher in a dynasty league. Looking at my DYNASTY cheat sheet, Evans and Benson are both listed at $15.


    I own both of these guys in my dynasty league and I think Evans is here to stay while Benson is a coin-flip. Make the trade and don't look back.

  4. I would have no problem taking Manning as a late 1st rounder. Did that last year and won a big $$$ league. I took him 10th and watched almost the entire league scramble every week trying to mix and match QB's. At the time,I could have selected Rudi, Ronnie, or Lamont. I have never seen anyone win a championship with those guys. It seems that every year, after the first three or so stud RB's are gone, you have about a 50/50 chance of picking a bust. Not so with Manning. I currently have him 9th on my sheet. Also, with Manning, I only needed a QB backup for just one week and later used that spot to store Ladell Betts who was huge for me.

  5. Thanks for the info. But the guys in my league want something simpler. They are kicking around an arrangement that would replace our team D with 1 starting DL, 1 starting LB and 1 starting DB. The total average points scored by all 3 would average around what the team D scored. Is this what some leagues are doing? Should I be trying to talk them into something like the advice above? None of the 10 teams in this league have ever played in a IDP league before and I don't want the league to decide against this so we need help.

  6. Is it the money??? You tell me. I won the championship, 3 weekly pots and a couple of small bonuses. I am up somewhere around $1400. :D



    Upon further review, I worked harder than any team in the league, going as far as 100's of pre season mock drafts, custom spread sheet "cheat sheets", 7 day a week combing the internet for cutting edge info (lots of the Huddle of course), and pissing off my wife with what she calls overly obsessed fantasy football behavior. I figure at least 20 hours a week for the last 6 months works out to be around 500 hours. You divide that by the $1400 I won and at best I earned is around $3 an hour. :D


    I think this answers your question

  7. Ahh...but, see, I actually had SA to start the year, never traded him away, and still lived to tell about it.





    That is an impressive feat, I will give you that. I was able to aquire SA for Julius only because of the pure desperation from the SA owner around week 5 :D . He did make it to the first round of the playoffs only to go one and done. He was smart to dump SA when he did cause he would have never got that far without Julius. All this makes your accomplishment the more impressive. :D

  8. I disagree.


    Vick in the 10th is averaging .21 points more per game

    Brees in the 12th is averaging .087 more points per game

    Palmer in the 6th is averaging 1.686 points less per game


    Those are good values.



    I disagree with your disagreement. The #1 key to winning as you well know is avoiding busts. While a couple of QB's were found much later and are quite good, you will find most teams strugling to fill this spot. Also, not keeping a backup QB has allowed many of these teams to find serious RB jewels in the middle rounds (Gore and some of the rooks come to mind). Teams that drafted RB's late in the first round have strugled. Not only do they not have a QB in most cases, most have pretty poor RB production. Most teams drafting late ended up with the likes of Edge, Caddy, Ronnie, Rudi, McGahee and several other non difference makers. Where are most of them now? Likely eliminated

  9. It looks like I'm the only one with Shaun Alexander that's SB bound...hmmm...



    Your not the only one (see sig below), but I traded Julius to get SA


    I see lots of LT and Gore, with some SJax and Westy sprinkled in. Not very many teams who went RB-RB with a late 1st round pick. I think having the 10th pick in a 10 teamer and going QB-WR worked out pretty well :D

  10. After watching that play 3 things are abundantly clear;


    1. It is an unfair rule and needs a viset to the competition commitee


    2. Phillip Rivers knew it was a 1st down right away and probably wasn't the only player who did


    3. The real surprise is that Chiefs got screwed, instead of the usual victim, "Da Raiders" of course

  11. For me, those two have their own tier. SA still has a few games to prove himself, but so far he hasn't impressed.


    "those two" meaning LT and LJ. There is no way that LJ is on the same level as LT, not even close. Check out these facts


    Average fantasy points per game


    LT 20.4

    LJ 13.5

    Westy 10.8

    SJax 10.8

    Gore 10.6

    and a whole bunch of other guys around 10


    Also, I read this on CBS.


    Owners winning % with this player


    1. LaDainian Tomlinson, San Diego, RB

    Winning percentage: .679


    2. Larry Johnson, Kansas City, RB

    Winning percentage: .598


    3. Brian Westbrook, Philadelphia, RB

    Winning percentage: .567


    4. Frank Gore, San Francisco, RB

    Winning percentage: .550


    5. Willie Parker, Pittsburgh, RB

    Winning percentage: .546


    6. Steven Jackson, St. Louis, RB

    Winning percentage: .540


    The owners winning % is 8% better with LT than LJ. That is simply an unfair advantage.

    I think the tiers should look like this





    4)Those guys that were in the second tier

  12. Parity that Pete Rozelle would have been proud of. The top 3 teams in each division made the playoffs. I don't think we will ever see this again in our league.

  13. Great post! Definetely time to consider keepers for Dyasty leagues. We can pick up FA's after the playoffs are over and build during the offseason in my league.


    How bout NFL free agents that have potential to be big next year?


    Matt Schaub- Going to be a starting QB for Somebody, maybe MN?

    Drew Bennett- Could also go to MN and be Matts #1 WR

    Michael Turner- Could be a stud for?
