  1. Bengals WR A.J. Green doesn't want to be traded: 'We're building something special here'
  2. Thursday's NFL injury and roster news for Week 5
  3. To give you a little point of reference, I play in a PPR league with IDPs (45 man rosters & start 18 total players , 11 of them are IDPs). Starting requirements & scoring rules are too complex to explain, but the IDP scoring is big play scoring (ie: 6 pts per sack & DL = 3 points per tackle, while LBs & DBs get 2 pts per tackle), Offense PPR scoring (is .5 pts for RBs., 1 pts for WR, &1.5 pts for TEs), also IDP stars score about the same as offensive stars. My league is a mixture of sharks and casual ff players. It is important to review the drafting habits of your competitors if possible, because there usually is a surprise or two during our drafts. There was one or two surprises during this year's draft! Chase Young went 1.1 ( which is a big reach), then there was a big run on the big name RBs & WRs, then the 8th pick was Joe Burrow (that team was hurting for QB depth). then I chose 9th, I really really struggled over a choice of Isaiah Simmons or Justin Jefferson, (I finally chose Simmons because of his big play potential, and my research had some people questioning if Jefferson had some weaknesses if he was not playing in the slot. I was looking to swing for the fences on my 1.09 pick). I strongly concur with what the others are saying (they are very knowledgeable ff people), knowing your competition and the basics of your drafting situation is a big plus for you. Also look to draft the best player available if you play in a dynasty league, that is usually better than drafting for need. Hope this helps!
  4. I also play in a big-play dependent IDP scoring league, where IDP stars score as much as offensive stars (six points per sack, DL - 3 pts per tackle, LBs and DBs - 2 pts. per tackle). I really like that scoring system, makes the strategy of trading and roster management a ton more fun in my opinion. I was wondering if Adams was still a Jet, how much a possible healthy CJ Mosley might have cut into Adams IDP scoring. I was also wondering if a good Seattle offense would hurt Adams IDP scoring more than if he had stayed on the Jets.
  5. Updated information: Jets trade All-Pro safety Jamal Adams to Seahawks
  6. Jets trade Jamal Adams to Seahawks for multiple 1st-round picks
  7. I also assume it's Melvin Gordon. I agree that this offer really ages your team a lot, and that is a problem. Julio Jones is almost 10 years older than either Brown or Moore, and his fantasy numbers will start declining soon. Julio didn't score many more points than Brown or Moore in my 1 point PPR league, so in .5 PPR league, they should have scored about the same amount of points. 1.03 pick is interesting, but with no blue chip draft prospects that stand out at 1.03, I wouldn't get too excited about that pick. If Brown or Moore (both only 22 years old) would get in a good offensive system with a good young QB, either one of these young WRs could start realizing their true value. Melvin Gordon will turn 27 this April. and Julio is already over 30 years old, so this offer would come off as a weak offer compared to the up side of either Brown or Moore.
  8. Seven sacks in his rookie year along with 31 tackles is a sign of positive things to come. If Chase Young is added to the other edge, Sweat could be a nice player to have.
