  1. I don't mind paying pick 9, I like Rawls' talent at least as much as the guys available in that range. I did make the move more to give me the flexibility to move another RB for WR; I have J.Howard and Mel Gordon. There are still a few owners that favor having a RB stable. We'll see what comes of that. I got DGB for a pittance in our startup last year, so I am happy getting pick 20. I've soured on him after watching him in Philly, and I was going to have to assign a contract to him this season, which ties up some roster flexibility. Nobody else in this league was going to give up anything of significance for DGB. The blind bidding bucks are probably equal to a mid 3rd rookie pick or so.
  2. 12 team, start Q/R/WWW/T/ + 2 flex, PPR for WR/TE, .5 PPR for RB I traded pick 9 and D.Green-Beckham for Rawls, pick 20, and a few blind bidding bucks (7% of yearly dole) I'm down on DGB, and my opinion of Rawls actually went up watching him a few times this year. His #s were terrible vs Rams and Cards, pretty good against the rest overall, despite a bad O line. I think Seattle addresses O line. Rawls is still young, 24 in August.

  4. I am in a 12 team startup dynasty. I got decimated by injuries very early and decided pretty quickly to play for next year. Start Q-R-WWW-T + 2 flex. I have Brees and Mariota. I was just offered Doug Martin for Brees and turned it down immediately. I should be good next year, adding Martin does not overcome the current 8 ppg difference between Brees and Mariota. I'll take 1-3 years of Brees over an oft-injured good-not-great 28 yr old (in Jan) RB (and I am not even a fantasy football ageist). Context: I have Melvin Gordon, Jordan Howard, C.Simms/Abdullah/Prosise/Yelson.... plus 3 2017 1sts (mine will be top 2). If I had a longer rebuild window I would consider trading Brees (though for somebody younger than Martin), but I expect him to be a difference maker in 2017 as he is now.
  5. Yeah, it is between Moncrief, Mike Floyd, and DeSean Jackson for me... I need Moncrief to be ready to go.
  6. Julio being at least average gives me two wins.
  7. It was a coin flip for me between Fleener and D.Allen in a non-PPR... I lost the coin flip, and it will almost certainly cost me the win (unless the Rams D goes off in a big way, Ds score more than usual in this league). Probably only give it 1-2 more weeks to see something promising.
  8. I have him in 4 out of 6 leagues, great start to the season... In one dynasty I am stacked at WR, he was my WR4, his loss only hurts during byes. In my startup dynasty I am in a bind. I have Watkins, Floyd... then Allen, D.Parker, and J.Gordon. I'm rolling with Torrey Smith as my WR3, need Parker to get healthy in a hurry, hoping for Gordon to step up come week 5. My bind is that we start 1 RB, 3 WR, 1 TE, and 2 flex. I'm already down Ladarius Green, so I am weak at TE (Walford and V.McDonald). I went light at RB (M.Gordon/Yeldon/C.Sims, with Abdullah on my devy squad). I am maxed out on contract space, with 3 assumed starters currently down and Gordon on the shelf, so I cannot even activate Abdullah for my flex unless I give him a 1-2 year contract or drop a good player. Gonna wait it out until I see what I have in Parker/Gordon/T.Smith. One redraft is a 10 team with silly shallow lineups (2QB, 2RB, 2WR, 1TE, K, D, NO flex), so I'm fine there. this league has 24/7 FCFS waivers, even during games... somebody dropped Snead before his for T. Sharpe, so I pounced on Snead. I have Rivers as my 2nd starting QB, so that sucks. I did get Wentz last week, so maybe they can by my QB2BC. My other redraft sucks, 12 team start 2RB, 2WR, + 2 flex. I have AJ Green, then Allen, Parker, Floyd, then V.Jackson/Torrey Smith/Funchess. Sproles is my RB3, Barnidge my TE2... Gonna be tough sledding, not a bunch on the wire. I'm sure nobody read this far, but it is a bit cathartic to type it anyway.
  9. I happily acquired him for Jonathan Stewart in a 12 team ppr dynasty. He was WR20 ppg in 2014, I would expect similar numbers this year... but i wouldn't be surprised to see him put up his 2013 numbers (82-1332-9).
  10. I think Bennett will pull many targets from the RBs (and even some from Gronk), fewer from the WRs. Did the Pats have a good WR2 besides Lloyd in the Hernandez days? It is entirely possible that Hogan is better than their options back then. Also, IMO Hernandez was a better receiving talent than Bennett, so one cannot simply say Bennett gets the same number of targets. One last point that may favor Hogan: isn't he a good blocker? So he would be on the field in more situations than Mitchell and Amendola. With 4 viable targets, Brady will check down to RBs fewer times and not have to simply force it to Gronk or Edelman. If Brady has full confidence in all 4 downfield options, he will hit the open guy. Brady lost confidence in various WR2s and didn't look their way after they started screwing up routes and dropping passes. If Hogan avoids these flubs, he will be better than their typical WR2. In short, it is entirely possible, IMO, that it is Gronk and Edelman as targets 1a/1b, then Bennett and Hogan as targets 3a/3b, then the RBs. I don't have full confidence in him, but I do somewhat like Hogan to finish as a fantasy WR3, especially on a ppg basis when Brady is back.
  11. I was not involved in this trade.
  12. New 12 team league. Start QRWWWT + 2 flex. PPR for WR/TE, .5 PPR for RB. Team W gave 2017 1st rounder (projects to be top 6, but not an absolute certainty) Team J gave Rashad Jennings, Paul Perkins, Andre Williams I would really, really, appreciate input on this trade.
  13. In a 12 team initial dynasty auction 2 weeks ago, I got him for $18 on a $500 budget.
  14. He was taken at picks 15, 18, and 22 in my three rookie drafts, all in May/June. You may need to reset your expectations of where you can get him (unless you are talking IDP).
  15. Lot of RBs in Seattle, but Michael is a free agent after this year...
