  1. One of my local leagues is an auction league. We carry the salaries (winning bids) into the season. Our waivers are where things are a bit unique... you put a player up for bid on the message board with a price. If the bid is not upped within 24 hours he is yours. If there is a new bid, the timer restarts when the new bid is placed. It's also $5 a transaction. This changes things up. You can't sneak a player through waivers. Everyone can see who you want as long as they log in or are notified. You have to have the cap space, and/or clear the cap space on a winning bid. So you have to consider who you are going to cut as the bid increases. It may not simply be the last guy on your bunch you cut. A guy might have a big week, so I nominate him. I don't really want the guy and hoping someone else ups the bid and it gets another $5 in the kitty. You have to have a plan in place for the weekend. If a bid on a guy and the clock starts/restarts, the bidding could take several days and may not expires next time for the guy to be in lineups for this upcoming week. So don't leave yourself short and bid late. Let's say my opponents main QB got hurt this past week, and his backup is on a bye. If my opponent waits until late in the week to bid on a qb, I am going to do my best to up the bids at the right clock intervals so he doesn't have a QB this weekend. My opponent should just move on to a new target in these cases but I stopped him from having his preferred choice most likely. This is certainly not for everyone but to me it adds a lot of flavor to the waiver wire game.
  2. I can easily see him filling the Landry role with the added bonus of being a redzone threat. I just dont trust Gase. Gesicki seems like he would fill that role well, but then he's really a slot wr with a TE designation. That a perfect world and honestly we all know he cant block so i hope Miami sees it the same way. But i remain skeptical.
  3. Watched him a bit at PSU and wasn't sure how his game would translate to the NFL. Either they let me run routes all day and he's going to be very good or instead of being a pseudo WR he has to be a legit TE an results will be slow to come. Hoping for the former and watching him much more closely since I became an owner today.
  4. It does. Only players lost to free agency are calculated. Since Hayden was cut, he does not count.
  5. I dont have the time to be involved but throwing my 2 cents in...i think its best if each team assumes Cousins is on some other team rather than gifting him to a team.
  6. One of my main leagues is a contract dynasty league. We have an auction each year and upon a winning bid you have to decide how long you want to keep the player. 4 years is the maximum. Cutting a guy before his contract is up incurs cap hits and such but what I want to get to is... What at we do which I have rarely seen is our in-season waiver process. It is an open auction. You nominate a player for a salary amount, usually the minimum but not always. If another team wants to acquire the player he has 24 hours to up the bid. If that happens the clock restarts and every team has another 24 hours to consider if they want the player. Keeps going until there are no bids in a 24 hour period. You can't sneak a guy through waivers. It's all open information. Just like a regular auction sometimes you are just hoping to drive the price up. Sometimes you nominate a guy because he blew up the week before and you know someone will up the bid and add to the transaction kitty ($5/transaction). Sometimes you overpay because you have cap space and the other guy doesn't. Because it's open info you need to be proactive and acquire the guy before others are confident he will (continue to) produce.
  7. I'd love to see Martavis high point a few balls this preseason.
  8. Each auction league takes on a life of its own. It is difficult to help here without knowing these dynamics. How big is the pool of players in the auction? What do backup qbs go for? Wr's? Etc.. While the following question is simple the answer is not always clear...if I cut a guy what do I have to pay to get him back? If the answer is less than you are currently paying then he is an easy cut. The other question is if you cut him what will it cost to get comparable production from another player? Again if the answer is less then cut him. with that said, in my contract auction league, teams have a lot of money but the talent is not deep so guys should go for more than they would in other years.
  9. Who would you cut from the following before the draft? QB - Cousins ($11), Palmer ($10), Garoppolo ($3) RB - L. Miller ($27), David Johnson ($25), L. Murray ($17), Perkins ($3) WR - Julio ($39), Evans ($21), Allen Robinson ($15), Watkins ($11), Parker ($7) TE - Olsen ($21), Eifert ($9) D - Chiefs (3) The bolded seem obvious to me. Then its a matter of your thoughts and league history with regards to Robinson, Watkins and Parker. I might be willing to get rid of Olsen if you think Eifert will be healthy.
  10. I have this guy for the minimum in a contract auction league and I'm not sure I can keep him. I have money to spend and his roster spot may be better utilized.
  11. Someone had to go to the outside. And he figures to be the best fit. Or at least I was hoping they thought he was. i picked him up last week right before the trade. And have been searching for this type of info on him.
  12. I've had 9 twice... McCoy in the first and Freeman in the second the other Evans in the first and Jordy in the second Happy with both those starts.
  13. Just posted by Faust in the Mixon thread.
  14. Right now, probably. By Saturday night...definitely. I think I like Hill more than most, but Cincy has been very active looking at RB prospects for the draft. Who knows. Maybe they don't draft one, but I'd be concerned as a Hill owner.
  15. While I won't say Landry is ordinary, I don't think he's elite. I do agree this Stills signing is insurance. Insurance against Parker not living up to his potential. Insurance against getting out priced when Landry's contract is up. I am probably reading this wrong but I take both of these signings as more as noting wanting to pony up money to Landry.
