  1. And this was the first week that I've benched him during that time. I've never been good with timing.
  2. You can get the same result if all of your leagues are on MFL. On the player page there's a link for Status in All My Leagues. It will tell you if the player is owned, by what team, and if the player is starting or not starting that week.
  3. I'd be surprised if Antonio isn't getting most, if not all, of his guaranteed money. His tweet announcing the release was way too appreciative. It would have been a very different tone if he only made $58k this year.
  4. I'd take that trade unless I planned on returning next year -- and I think we all know the answer on whether you'll be returning. Evans is definitely better than Fitz but I think that the difference is more than offset by gaining a startable RB in Cohen and AP who could put up some solid weeks for you while you wait on Gordon to return or one of your RBs to hit. You are basically trading one starter for three.
  5. TBH, I'd rather have no rankings over rankings that have no connection with reality. I've seen some bad rankings here before and the contributors were quick to come in and defend themselves and the picks. Hopefully Tietgen will do the same.
  6. He hasn't been traded yet in any of the leagues where owners offered him to me either. I think that owners have a really high perceived value on him whereas others haven't been paying attention to him and don't have him rated as highly.
  7. I doubt that based on offers I've seen this offseason. In several different leagues I've received unsolicited offers for McDonald where they are valuing him as if he was a top 5 dynasty TE.
  8. Not calling you out in particular. But I've seen quite a few offers, in several leagues, from different owners, where I'm being pitched McDonald as if he is a top 5 dynasty TE. I haven't noticed any guy whose value has been inflated nearly as much as his this year. Now, with that being said, I was a huge fan of his when he first came out and would love to see him add on to what he did last year. But I think that people are acting if he's already taken the next step.
  9. I disagree but it seems as if a lot of people are buying into (or at least pitching) this concept. I have received more offers of people trying to sell McDonald than any other player. And I've been shocked at the value that his owners are placing on him. I haven't been willing to pay that price yet but there's apparently a Vance fanclub out there advancing the notion that he's got a ton of value right now.
  10. And Tom Brady was a 6th round draft pick. Not sure where that gets us. Did Michael Thomas fall in the draft as well? Did he rise? I'm not really sure. There will always be examples of later drafted players out-performing earlier drafted players. My point dealt with the fall from projected slot to actual slot for Treadwell and Metcalf -- it had nothing to do with strict correlation between draft slot and NFL performance. If you remember you said that Metcalf fell (or that his draft slot was irrelevant) because the Seahawks didn't draft earlier so we should ignore the fall because the fall didn't reflect a loss in value. Although picks 29 and 47 were still much lower than Metcalf was projected and the Seahawks had those picks but didn't pick Metcalf. But let's ignore inconvenient facts. The point was that both WRs fell from where they were projected. Treadwell fell considerably from where he was projected to go. So did Metcalf, with him going as high as 6 or 7 in many drafts. I've become more cautious after Treadwell and will be spending time trying to see if there's a reason for the decline that should make me look in a different direction. You find it irrelevant. My guess is that you'll have a lot of shares of Metcalf and I'll probably have none.
  11. Good luck with your draft then. But, for me, when a guy gets drafted much later than expected, there's probably a reason. And I'm going to look for it. But the theory that you and Seattle know more than the other 31 teams could also be true. If that's the case, just like Seattle, you'll get great value.
  12. Sounds like the logic I used to justify taking Treadwell in rookie drafts a few years ago. And we all know how that turned out.
  13. I would not unless I was in full rebuild mode. BTW, in the future you should post questions like this here: Welcome to the boards.
  14. You did the right thing. I send out one rule, and only one rule, to owners in the leagues I commish before the draft: "Don't be that guy." It's served me well. Owners are allowed to consider who they're taking, investigate trades, and deal with life issues. But just "don't be that guy." That goes for all sides, the guys on the clock, the owners receiving offers, and those waiting for the pick.
