  1. Bridgewater named starting QB

    If Watson was in the cards why would DEN and/or HOU wait until the season is about to start or has started? Watson needs a fresh start and would be a great fit for DEN. HOU is a trainwreck right now and if they do trade Watson they will at least get draft picks and maybe a couple key players to help with next year's rebuild.
  2. Tough call with Dynasty. I would side on caution and keep A.Jones. Both have had their fair share of injuries, but not as bad as Barkley. Barkley could turn it around this season, but I do not think I would risk it. He has burned many since he enterred the league. I pretty sure there will not be much to select from by the time rounds 4-5 come around.
  3. Message Board League 2 - 10 Teams

    I thought about doing the same. Taking Watson was a gamble. I could not find any news if he is going to play at all this season. Last update from MFL news was plan for healthy scratch every week. If he does play then the risk as my 3rd QB was worth it.
  4. In my main league (10-team keeper/IDP) we currently are keeping 13 weeks for regular season and playoffs/Super Bowl weeks 14-16. Question is anyone changing their league schedules to accomodate the 18 week season? I assuming 12 team or higher will. I would like to here opinions as I have other leagues.
  5. Fantasy schedule (changes?)

    My mistake. I was looking at the bottom of each page on ESPN weekly schedule and mistook the MNF matchup for bye week. Week 14 is BYE Indianapolis Miami New England Philadelphia
  6. Fantasy schedule (changes?)

    I could understand week 14 bye, but there are teams on byes for each week up to week 16 so there will be some teams that will have players on bye during Fantasy Playoffs. Not sure if that is a strong enough argument against not having an extended regular Fantasy season. I currently have a poll for my league to find out the majority to increase or keep same. If increasing the teams play another out of conference game.
  7. Agree, but you have to give benefit of doubt for his first year. He can still turn it around this year. I like Ekler, but he will not hold up to north/south style of running. Hopefully OC can keep playing to his stregths and keep him healthy. I'm leaning slightly to CEH due to age and more dynamic offense. Ekler might burn again this year with any sort of nagging injury.
  8. Agree with Def. I would go with WR Adams RB Taylor.
  9. No. I would not do that. It's not like Henry is an old man. Big carries the past couple years, yes. Having Henry for 1.11 is good. What are other 10 picks keeping ahead of you?
  10. Who would you pick?

    Adams. Barkley is a risk. Not a horrible risk, but compared to Adams WR is the choice I would go with.
  11. Research on various strains for years yes, but I believe the talk was about the initial strain and now the Delta variant. There simply not enough time for proof of concept 'if you will' on the current vaccines.
  12. Keeping three out of these four...

    Agree with FastSteve. RBs are at a premimum, but I think you can do better than Montgomery.
  13. Agree. Some people here became very sick after shot(s) and others barely any symptoms. Speculation is vaccine not effective if no symptoms felt after shot(s). I do not know. I tried finding any ariticles or news about it and just gave up. Now there talk about taking booster shots depending on which version of shot you got. CRAZY!!! My joverseas job is tied to being vaccinated so I have to roll with the punches or look for other work. Hopefully just being vaccinated holds as the standard until more results from testing is made public (if released).
  14. Issue with many I talk to civilian and military is they do not believe in the effectiveness and safety. Remember the vaccine was rushed through and approved for emergency use. The vaccine did not go through the many phases and trials before FDA deemed effective and safe. Thrown in Fauci flip floping on information and all the main stream news media pushing 'whatever' narritive causing more doubt. I'm vaccinated and flown many times overseas and back to the US. Protocols in place at every country along the way during layovers. FDA and spam companies still need to go through the normal process/testing. To my knowledge the FDA has only approved for emergency use only. I may be wrong as I am not following closely. Overseas is the same thing. You have to be vaccinated and carrying around a shot card certificate and/or the country's tracking app if you want to go anywhere. If no creditentials, no access. All you have access to is just being outdoors.
  15. Fantasy schedule (changes?)

    For a 10 team leauge all conference/divsion play each other twice and out of conference/division once. I would have to make sure the extra game is another out of conference division game. I'm hedging that owners would complain that 4 of 5 would get an extra conference/division game and one left out. We have standings for playoffs based on conference/division records. 1 team being left out would be an issue.
  16. Message Board League 2 - 10 Teams

    I usually do not take a QB this early. Change up just to see what happens.
  17. 4 point or 6 points per passing touchdown?

    we had 6 pts for all TDs. We did have bonus for QB rush/receive TD, WR/TE pass/rush TD, RB pass/receive TD. a few years back we switched to QB passing TDs to 4 pts. I do not think it matters too much as long as one position is not terribly lopsided in the scoring. If everyone in the league agrees to the scoring system, no issues.
  18. A Couple Of Raider Articles...

    Raiders will improve this year. Last season was horrible. At least this season the play should be better with new coaches and jettison of the malcontents.
  19. Super Bowl Champion Colts

    Quote from the movie - "The Goonies"
  20. Fishing for opinions

    I agree with no absolute for the commish. I am commish in one of my leagues; been in the league 11 yrs now; rotating commish's every few years. I have approving authority as the check. The balance is a 75% vote of remaining owners to overturn a trade. This balance keeps everything civil. You can not always please everyone, someone will always disagree about a trade, but if the offended owners can not convience the majority to swing to the vote, then it stands and the offended owner(s) live with the sour grapes. No way for that person to complain anymore unless they are really a &*)&%$, then you just vote that person out of the league. I have had a few trades where owners did not agree. I spoke to the other owners before I approved the trade just to hear their rationale. Their is a fine line between allowing owners to do what is best for their teams and what is in the best interest of the league, hence the check and balance.
  21. Randy Moss

    Well said! I did not like Moss the last couple years at MIN. Maybe Bill can change that. I'm sure NE worked in some type of disclipine clause.
  22. Consensus NFL Mock Draft

    Russell. It should have been Vince Young last year
  23. 2007 Fantasy University Rookies

    DMD, can you please pin this thread? Very useful with rookie drafts coming up.
  24. Jerry Porter Interview

    It will be nice if this was not just PC talk. If Jerry can turn it around, Raiders should be improved from last year.
  25. How will Romo do tonight?

    I also sat Vick and started Romo. Difference of about -9pts. I could have used those points in my conference championship game. Hopefully it does not cost me a trip to the my Superbowl
