  1. Playoff schedule Dillemma!

    I'd talk to the guy that quit and see if he has a friend that can occupy the team because he can't. There is something else about the money. I understand the guy is quitting for personal reasons but he paid his money and should be offered every chance of maintaining the team even if he, himself, can't.
  2. Toilet Bowl question

    Reading this the main concentration is not on the teams that make the toilet bowl but the 4 teams who don't make the toilet bowl and don't make the fantasy bowl. I see 2 ways to overcome this. 1. Allow 6 teams in the toilet bowl and 6 teams in the Fantasy bowl if you have a 12 team league. 2. I kind of really like this in a league I participate in. The bottom 4 teams must provide a prize worth $ 30 to the top 4 finishers. First the whole league will want to compete for the top 4 spots to gain this benefit. Next the remaining 8 teams will want to compete for the next 4 spots so they don't have to pay out the prize to the top 4. Lastly when the bottom 4 teams are decided and they have their punishment they then battle for the # 1 pick. I like that this second scenario allows for competition throughout the year.
  3. commish issue

    Go to a league vote and leave out the 2 people involved in the game.
  4. Keeper League advice

    I have played in several semi-keeper leagues for years and this is what I find to be the best in the rules I have played: 1. Lose the future year round pick where the player was drafted (ex. If Larry Johnson was drafted in the 5th round then you lose a 5th round pick in future year drafts) 2. FA Pickups carry a weighted value by position if this player is kept (RB = 7th round pick, WR/TE = 8th round pick, QB = 9th round pick, K/DEF = 10th round pick) 3. Future year picks can be traded but an amount of money is owed for that draft pick as collatoral for the following year. (1st - 4th round picks trade = 50% of entry fee per pick, 5th - 9th round pick = 35% of entry fee per pick, 10th - 16th round pick = 15% of entry fee per pick) 4. Future Year draft picks - There is a playoff for the # 1 pick which keeps everyone involved until week 16 and owners won't dump. I'll update if I think of more.
  5. Interboard Challenge Owners

    I'm still around...been travelling lately but still around. Every pick I made this year didn't pan out except for McNabb. Just not my year...
  6. Inactives

    He probably would have but now they will move Gamble there who is a strong pretty good CB.
  7. Travis Henry will be suspened for four games.

    It usually starts on a Tuesday.
  8. Inactives

    Add Darwin Walker - DT - Eagles to the list
  9. Mewelde Moore

    Well then take him out of your darn lineup
  10. R. Brown or B. Jacobs?

    I agree with Bed
  11. qb they both suck please your opinion

    Start no QB and take the chance that 0 is better then negative points That's one ugly choice. Brunell over Harrington...the Bears DEF is very good.
  12. WDIS at RB in TD only league

    I think the always start your Studs comes into play here. Remember that Johnson only had limited carries last week even after they had a huge lead. Johnson is a stud but he doesn't become an every day starter until Holmes is out of the picture.
  13. WDIS? Need 2 RB's out of list inside...

    Even though Johnson is going to get 10 - 12 carries...I believe the Chiefs will be way ahead early and they will sit Holmes sometime in the 2nd half. I think you need to stay away from Arrington and Bennett and start Davis.
  14. Jamal Lewis or Ladanian Tomlinson?

    Sometimes it doesn't matter about matchups. The term "always start your studs especially when they are going for the consecutive game with a TD streak" comes into play.
  15. wdis

    Clayton against Buffalo may be a mess but Taylor against his life in the NFL has been a mess. Until Taylor proves something...anything...you gotta start Clayton over him regardless of opponent.
  16. Pennington?

    6 Fumbles???? I know he didn't lose them all but darn!!!
  17. 2005 NFL Survivor Challenge: Week 1

    Carolina Pathers
  18. This was in RTSPorts this morning. Panthers fans is this true? Aug 28 2005 3:30AM Updating previous reports, the Gaston Gazette's Steve Reed reports Carolina Panthers RB DeShaun Foster has conceded that RB Stephen Davis will be the team's starting running back opening day, if Davis' injured knee holds up. "We all know Stephen (Davis) is the starter," Foster said after Carolina's 23-20 preseason win Friday night, Aug. 26, over the Cleveland Browns. "That's how it is. We have a good player right there and he's going to help the team out and we're glad to have hi m back." The Panthers would like an offense similar to 2003 when they ran both Davis and Foster at teams every week. There were times when Davis was more effective, and other times when Foster carried the load. Foster is no lock to make it through the season with getting hurt. Right now the team has four other backs that could step in should Davis and Foster get injured. Fantasy Impact: Davis should be ready to go for the season opener, so expect him to start. He is a bit of a risk, but could be a fine No. 2 back if his knee holds up.
  19. Lost in a world of Individual Defense.

    That is one hell of a scoring system. I can say for the first time that IDP's are more valuable then Offensive players in this scoring system. Now more then ever you need to make projections for all players and fit them into a ranking system. Use VBD and include IDP's as apart of that. Julius Peppers has great value in this system because he has outproduced most DL over the last 3 years.
  20. *** HUDDLE UP AND READ THIS ***

    Thanks David and Whitney...truly appreciated. You may even grab us all to pay next year
  21. how did i do?

    Glad to see that the choice not to participate in Yahoo leagues is a good one.
  22. Peppers

    Yeah IDPers wouldn't know that he is the best DE in the game today
  23. Panthers RB

    The answer to your question is this...it doesn't matter whether you pick up Foster or not...when Foster or Brown are available as Free Agents this means you are in a 6 to 8 team league. For a 6 to 8 team league this team just flat out stinks and neither Foster or Brown will help you. Swamp's got it right...any opening in your leagues???
  24. Attn Eagle Fans - Need More Owners

    They are as passionate when their team is winning
  25. Henry to be Traded?

    Don't see this posted here yet so thought I would add it: http://www.billsinsider.com/index.php?POST...3912920afa85221 Friday, July 08, 2005 - 08:19 PM The latest word on Buffalo RB Travis Henry is that he will be traded to the Jacksonville Jaguars and that the deal is all but done. The Bills would be recieving a 3rd round draft choice in next years NFL draft and there could designated production benchmarks that, if met, could turn it into a 2nd round pick. If there is a hangup on the deal, it will be based on the conditions needed to transform it from a 3rd to a 2nd rounder. Henry is expected to take a physical in Jacksonville sometime next week, which he will pass, and it shouldn't be long after that the deal is made official. The Tennessee Titans are also in the mix (and recently the Vikings have been added in the rumors), but at this point it looks as if Jacksonville is more willing to meet Tom Donahoe's demands.
