  1. Send you a PM to denote interest.
  2. I've got to think he or Rodney Anderson transition in for Gio at some point this year or next. I'm taking a look at him in 30 man dynasty league and was looking at other feedback here.
  3. I love a challenge. I'm in for this one!
  4. You have to go to 17th place (!) in final standings to find a team that scored more than 60 points in Week 1 ( and likely would have advanced if entries had been as normal. I correctly picked San Francisco with 8 players and captured a good majority of their scoring ( but didn't have money to invest in a 2nd team (whom, based upon other playoff contests I entered would have be KC) so as to advance in early rounds - 103, 147, 131. Reading the thread here and smh ???
  5. Interesting to see Rappaport state Lindsay to see majority of carries in Denver; and albeit injuries, Miles Sanders & Tevin Coleman to take clear lead back status' this week. I think you may see more Duke Johnson against the Ravens today, but that's just a hunch.
  6. I was curious any opinions on a range of different topics where I don't think there is/was a clear 100% definitive answer. With each passing game the picture typically becomes clearer (or more cloudy) - Trubisky's fate appeared sealed 25 minutes into the game yesterday, but the momentum of that 4th & 1 from their own 30 turned into 3 TD's. For 2 QB leagues that were holding Chase Daniels in hopes of filling in for a Rodgers, Cousins or other bye in coming weeks; that doesn't seem likely any longer. - Denver noted Drew Lock started practicing today, so will be curious to what how this one plays out this week and remainder of season - There weren't many whispers of Titans going back to Mariota; but had they been blown out by KC (versus a surprising upset); could have made that case. - With exception of play that he had to leave for; job seems to be Fitzmagic's for now. However they are winning, and losing draft they still need to explore Rosen now that the rest of the team is playing better (or is that the reason?). - The Bengals got crushed by Baltimore and they ran the ball for the first time all season despite the score. Are they going to continue to protect Ryan Finley like that? Dalton's prospects next year are more interesting; but what if they pull a Eli 2018 here and recognize their faults and turn back?'s the Bungles. - I think the RB questions posed saw interesting outcomes also. Hyde was on the field 55% of the time, and reportedly 43% of the time with Chubb. - The Rams tried Henderson for change of pace early then turned to a slightly more effective Malcolm Brown. This one seemingly got muddier as nothing was clicking for Rams yesterday. - Ronald Jones per Arians looked good but made blocking mistakes and coughed up the ball. - David Johnson was outtouched by Drake and continues to work through injury - The other 60/40's were on bye or playing tonight. Through this week there seems to be a leader; but I think one or more of those teams COULD alter the timeshare coming out of bye or extended week of practices. Time shall tell. - Of course, we know now that Kittle was marked doubtful and then out tonight. Trade deadline in my league was this weekend, I shot all of the bullets in my gun; including trading away Witten (as was on the surprising Stafford/Driskel news); but was fortunate to get OJ Howard points. That one played out well.
  7. With fantasy teams looking to make a playoff push, trade deadlines looming, lineup decisions pending amidst 3 final weeks of byes; here's some open-ended questions for discussion: Quarterbacks: We are back to full health (if Brissett goes) amonsgt starting QB's, but particularly for 2QB leagues - what QB currently on the bench is more likely to see action (barring injury)? Chase Daniel if Trubisky struggles versus Detroit? Marcus Mariota getting job back if Tannehill gets blown out by KC this weekend? Drew Lock or Brett Rypien in Denver? Organizations going back to Josh Rosen, Case Keenum, Garnder Minshew or Andy Dalton? Will Jacoby Brissett play this weekend and open up a roster spot for those holding both Brissett/Hoyer? Running Backs: Will a significant lead dog emerge out of Denver (Lindsay/Freeman), Houston (Hyde/D.Johnson), San Francisco (Coleman/Breida, etc), Philadelphia (Howard/Sanders) backfields to take a larger share than 60/40 split seeing from these today? Who is the backup to Gurley in LA? Darrell Henderson or Malcolm Brown with both healthy now and Henderson looking good in his opportunities over recent weeks. What type of share does Drake get in Arizona with David Johnson not on injury report? With declaration of RoJo in Tampa Bay, does his arc path change for better? How does the Cleveland backfield shake out with Kareem Hunt coming back? What does the Washington backfield look like once Derrius Guice returns? Wide Receiver/Tight End: Will George Kittle play on Monday night? If there is no word ahead of Sunday 1 pm EST games, what's the threshold of what you would consider? Is the best fallback option for MNF Ross Dwelley, Jacob Hollister or the returning Ed Dickson? Asking a few questions to provoke though and help us grind it out over next month and a half!
  8. Yes, thanks. Saw this. Looking for actual injury report status for Thursday:
  9. Malcolm Brown was a DNP on Wednesday, Todd Gurley was Limited Participant on Wednesday. What happened Thursday? I haven't seen anywhere yet.
  10. Add Kenny Stills, Robby Anderson and Donte Moncreif to this list. None are going to start barring an injury but also don't want to let the best option out there start for someone else weakened...
  11. With injuries to Emmanuel Sanders & Christian Kirk, not feeling as great about my WR depth. Nobody is screaming at me as a must add (Josh Reynolds is my 4th WR right now). Feeling strongly about any of these options? -Jordy Nelson (OAK): He caught 10 balls last weekend after targets of 1, OUT, 1 in the previous 3 weeks. -Josh Doctson (WAS): Not completely healthy, but 32 targets and 2 TD's over last 5 weeks -Taylor Gabriel (CHI): Just dropped this morning so can't pick up; but 17 catches on 24 targets over last weeks with Trubisky sidelined for part of that -Bruce Ellington (DET): Questionable to play, but 19 catches on 26 targets over last 3 weeks with Marvin Jones out and Golden Tate gone. -Devante Parker (MIA): 12 catches and a TD on 21 targets in last 3 games -John Ross (CIN): Touchdowns in 3 straight games before last week dud game. Clearer role with AJ Green out. -Devin Funchess (CAR): Only 13 catches in his last 5 games
  12. Looking to start a 10-12 man PPR league in Charlotte area; drafting tonight, 9/2 Ideal would be able to draft in person in Charlotte. Have some free time to kill, and want to do a live draft and get a league going locally! $100/owner Any interest. Can meet at some wing place (Uptown/Lake Norman/South Charlotte, depending upon interest) Post here, or text me at 704.674.1644 Tim Creech
  13. Are there any sites (or threads here) that have ventured putting out the (all-too-early) 2018 rankings yet? I'm not talking about Dynasty rankings; which reflect the 2018, 2019, 2020, etc seasons with perceived future expectations. I'm looking for 2018 rankings ONLY. In a 10-owner league with 12 keepers (of which one has to be a rookie); and only roster 22 players (so at 220 players, not exceptionally deep); leaving some interesting names available and intrigued on where they may be forecasted for 2018: QB: AJ McCarron, Paxton Lynch; Nathan Peterman, Josh Dobbs, Davis Webb RB: Ty Montgomery, Kenneth Dixon, Doug Martin; Elijah McGuire, Chris Carson WR: Corey Coleman, Donte Moncreif, Emmanuel Sanders; Zay Jones, John Ross, Chris Godwin, Kenny Golloday TE: Tyler Eifert, Martellus Bennett; Gerald Everett, Adam Shaheen, Jonnu Smith
