  1. Do we know yet if he will still be returning kicks? Could make him more startable in return leagues, especially this weekend against GB.
  2. And this is one of the reasons why I luv Reggie McKenzie... Sean Smith's contract essentially a one year deal with annual club options going forward and no cap penalty if cut after this season. $20 MM was not fully guaranteed. Only $11 MM, which comes off the books this year if this cat doesn't improve and we decide move on. This structure was probably the reason why it took so long to sign him (remember all the hand wringing that was going on about the delay in getting him signed once the rumors broke that he was visiting us). Sean Smith signed a 4 year, $38,000,000 contract with the Oakland Raiders, including a $5,000,000 signing bonus, $20,000,000 guaranteed, and an average annual salary of $9,500,000. In 2016, Smith will earn a base salary of $5,750,000, a roster bonus of $5,000,000 and a workout bonus of $250,000. Smith has a cap hit of $11,000,000 while his dead money value is $11,000,000.

  3. Rams should've drafted Carson Wentz
  4. Wentz looks like a franchise QB. He has an aura. He looks 180 degrees from Jared Goof. Good job, Iggles.
  5. Like many strategies in fantasy football, this one is very league specific, particularly with regards to number of teams and roster composition. The fewer teams, starting RB spots (incl. Flex) and bench spots, the more viable the plug and play RB approach is (for obvious reasons). I play in 10 team leagues, with two starting RB slots, six bench and no flex. Every single year viable RBs come around in this set up. Here are the names on the wire right now... League 1: Forsett, Ajayi, James White, Sproles, Hightower, Buck Allen, Deandre Washington, Dion Lewis, Kenny Dixon, Terrence West, Chris Johnson, Vereen, Al Morris, Charc West, Ellington... This league is a start 2 QB setup so that frees up even more RBs as several teams are carrying multiple backup QBs. Granted this is one extreme end of the spectrum where this approach is probably most viable. Work your way inward with more teams, more bench, more starting RB slots as all those factors deplete the free agent pool. Bottom line is that this is not a one size fits all strategy, but on my end of the spectrum it's extremely viable.
  6. Breakdown of Bruce Irvin week 1 http://www.silverandblackpride.com/2016/9/15/12915418/closer-look-at-bruce-irvins-sneaky-impressive-raiders-debut Dude was an animal. Great example of why we shouldn't judge vets in preseason. I was nervous about Bruce after the fake games but it's obvious he was sandbagging them.
  7. Well much better news than the frequent pain grimaces and punching of the hip we were greeted with yesterday.
  8. Please find one quote from me where I said Ware sucks or that West is much much better. Your selective memory and twisting of others' words does you no favors.
  9. You calling someone a troll is similar to when you told another poster to have some "####### class"... Laughably ironic! Carry on, junior.
  10. ^^^ I've given plenty of reasons behind my arguments. Some just choose to ignore them and/or write it off as "hate" when in actuality, I like Ware. I just like West and Charles (when healthy) too. Mainly, I like the Chiefs running game. Whoever is featured will score lots of fantasy points. But the winds of change were frequent with this situation last season and turf toe (if that is what Ware has) is a strong wind.
  11. No one ever uses the term at first. No one used it for CJA either, until weeks later when it was obvious. Got to read between the lines sometimes. I hope he's healthy. I own him and would love to start him again after last week. But I've seen enough turf toe situations over last last umpteen years to know to be uber careful whenever I hear a player has a sprained toe.
  12. JuniorNB and Milkman, ignore this post and even better, go ahead and place me on ignore in general, as you two don't seem to like to hear anything negative about Ware and will only be offended/angered by this... --- Went back to CJA's thread from last year to try to gain some insight from an actual turf toe situation... Week 2, the Broncos played on Thursday night and CJA was nursing a toe injury from week 1. It was revealed just before kickoff that he would be playing with a metal insert in his shoe (a classic turf toe signal). His night was pedestrian and he split time considerably with Hillman. The following week, he practiced in full on Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday. There was also the following Yahoo blurb that week: "C.J. Anderson says he's over his toe injury. Advice: Anderson is practicing in full for Week 3. "I'm fine now," Anderson said. "I don't think it affected me. ... I'm expecting results. That's just the honest truth." Anderson is off to a brutal start, but has had 10 days to get his mind and body right for Sunday's game against the Lions. He's a mid-range RB2 for Week 3" And here is his game log: Rushing Receiving Scoring Rk Date G# Age Tm Opp Result Att Yds Y/A TD Tgt Rec Yds Y/R TD Ctch% Y/Tgt TD Pts 15 Games 12-3-0 152 720 4.74 5 36 25 183 7.32 0 69.4% 5.08 30 1 2015-09-13 1 24-215 DEN BAL W 19-13 12 29 2.42 0 8 4 19 4.75 0 50.0% 2.38 0 0 2 2015-09-17 2 24-219 DEN @ KAN W 31-24 12 27 2.25 0 1 1 2 2.00 0 100.0% 2.00 0 0 3 2015-09-27 3 24-229 DEN @ DET W 24-12 8 18 2.25 0 1 1 9 9.00 0 100.0% 9.00 0 0 4 2015-10-04 4 24-236 DEN MIN W 23-20 11 43 3.91 0 1 1 27 27.00 0 100.0% 27.00 0 0 5 2015-10-11 5 24-243 DEN @ OAK W 16-10 11 22 2.00 0 2 2 18 9.00 0 100.0% 9.00 0 0 6 2015-10-18 6 24-250 DEN @ CLE W 26-23 13 41 3.15 0 4 4 25 6.25 0 100.0% 6.25 0 0 7 2015-11-01 7 24-264 DEN GNB W 29-10 14 101 7.21 1 1 1 5 5.00 0 100.0% 5.00 1 6 8 2015-11-08 8 24-271 DEN @ IND L 24-27 7 34 4.86 0 2 1 4 4.00 0 50.0% 2.00 0 0 9 2015-11-15 9 24-278 DEN KAN L 13-29 2 9 4.50 0 1 0 0 0 0.0% 0.00 0 0 10 2015-11-22 10 24-285 DEN @ CHI W 17-15 12 59 4.92 0 2 2 13 6.50 0 100.0% 6.50 0 0 11 2015-11-29 11 24-292 DEN NWE W 30-24 15 113 7.53 2 4 4 40 10.00 0 100.0% 10.00 2 12 12 2015-12-06 12 24-299 DEN @ SDG W 17-3 7 42 6.00 0 1 1 12 12.00 0 100.0% 12.00 0 0 13 2015-12-20 14 24-313 DEN @ PIT L 27-34 4 14 3.50 0 3 1 6 6.00 0 33.3% 2.00 0 0 14 2015-12-28 15 24-321 DEN CIN W 20-17 9 73 8.11 1 2 1 8 8.00 0 50.0% 4.00 1 6 15 2016-01-03 16 24-327 DEN SDG W 27-20 15 95 6.33 1 3 1 -5 -5.00 0 33.3% -1.67 1 6 Now Ware may or may not have a similar injury. But practicing or not this week might not be definitive. Keep an ear open for any talk about a metal insert in his shoe. If you hear something about that leading up to kickoff, it definitely becomes buyer beware time (no pun). It wasn't until seven weeks later, after the bye week between games six and seven, that the dude got right and started performing like he did prior to the injury. This seems to be the typical scenario when turf toe is diagnosed. Players try to play through it, but don't really seem right until they take time off to actually let it heal.
  13. Why is everything an attempt at one upping around here? I am trying to have dialogue. West got 50% of the snaps with a bionic arm. Did you see the brace on his elbow? Dude clearly isn't 100%. And yet, he got 50% of the snaps. Ware looked fantastic. But he hurt his toe on the last play. I'm nervous about that until we get clarity. I find it odd that some many are writing that off like it's nothing, when it could be the dreaded of all the dreadeds.
  14. ^^^ The move he made behind the LOS to fake right and then go left in order to get the DT to commit to the wrong gap was veteran as ####. This kid looks like an absolute gem.
