  1. I had mono in college. My liver enzymes were through the roof and I had jaundice. I couldn't leave the couch for 2 weeks and drank at least 3 gallons of water each day. Couldn't eat. Couldn't walk up stairs to shower without having to take a break because i was so tired. It's not just about the enlarged spleen, but it will physically be so draining that walking across the room is like running a marathon.
  2. 2 QB, 2 RB, 3 WR, 2 TE, 1 Flex. TEs are very valuable there
  3. I sold Evans this week with Carson and Waller for Kamara. Overpaid, but Kamara is a safe stud to plug in and never worry about. I would buy him back at a decent price though. I wouldn't sell him at all costs. Playing on a short week after battling the flu, I thought he played well. Jameis has to get him the ball, but Evans doesn't have a history of production against James Bradberry. If you're selling, considering waiting til they play the Giants week 3 and hope for a big game.
  4. 13 targets is huge. I will likely sell Samuel after this week if I can get decent value. The OL protections theoretically can be fixed. The playcalling can improve. But Cam does not look good at all. He shows no pocket presence and used to be elusive and hard to bring down. He goes down as soon as he is touched it seems and his passes are just not accurate. I think best case scenario would be hoping for a sliver of the improvement Andrew Luck showed last year. Luck got off to a slow start, people said he was washed up but finished with a great year. It's still only 2 games, but I am concerned about Cam.
  5. He got targets, but Cam looks awful and I don't know how much better it will be for him. He's never been an overly accurate QB. Samuel was open a lot, but couldn't get the ball. I'm going to field trade offers for him after putting up 14 PPR points this week. Certainly not a drop candidate. They have ARI & HOU on the horizon.
  6. Well, unless you've been in the perp's shoes in this scenario you aren't qualified to make this statement. You look at it in black and white: if he talked openly about it, it was obviously consensual. But you assume rational, logical thought. You aren't accounting for the power and dominance that plays a role in these types of situations. It reminds me of when I was on jury duty on a welfare fraud case. The defendant's lawyer was picking the jury based on his argument of: if my client didn't hide that he received welfare benefits, that proves he didn't intentionally defraud the county. Would you agree? Just because they flaunt it doesn't prove intent.
  7. I didn't feel great about him when I drafted him. I was trying to move him before Week 1 because I anticipated this TB offense wouldn't be what it was cooked up to be. Couldn't get a deal done and he puts up a stinker. Dealing with the flu, now on a short turnaround which isn't ideal for any non-RB. I sold him but wasn't great value by any means. Temper expectations for tonight and look forward to his week 3 vs NYG.
  8. Tre White isn't going to cover a slot WR. He will be on Robby Anderson most likely. And they will check it down to Crowder a lot. Darnold doesn't throw it deep very often.
  9. He played 92.5% of the snaps and plays TB this week. I would hold for another week at minimum. But I agree he is behind CMAC & DJ Moore. Olsen, that's iffy considering his injury history. Who knows how long he will be healthy.
  10. Evaluating Singletary is something they should do, but that shouldn't be at the top of the list. Developing Josh Allen should be. And if that means leaning on Frank Gore for his years of knowledge and trust him as a leader, and someone that can help Josh during the game, I would imagine that would have a lot of weight on who plays. I'm not hell bent on one guy starting over the other and not trying to fit my narrative. I think it's a timeshare, whether that is 50/50 or 60/40
  11. 2 QB, 2 RB, 3 WR, 2 TE, 1 Flex, 2 K, 2 TD, 12 teams, PPR. Only 5 bench spots. QB: Patrick Mahomes, Carson Wentz RB: Saquon Barkley, Chris Carson WR: Mike Evans, Larry Fitzgerald, Curtis Samuel Flex: Latavius Murray TE: Darren Waller, Dallas Goedert K: Jake Elliott, Josh Lambo TD: Seahawks, Chiefs
  12. I don't see Gore getting 200. I predict Singletary will get the lion's share of carries. It's not unreasonable to expect at least 8 or so carries from Gore per game, which equates to 128. However, the argument that the team shouldn't utilize Gore frequently because it would damper Singletary's learning curve I can't support. They aren't QBs. I don't see how sharing time with someone like Frank Gore could hinder Singletary's growth. And the team is of course interested in the future, but I believe the off-season showed that they also want to see some success now. Sooner or later the future has to be now. We've been saying "next year is our year" for far too long. They aren't going to go off and jeopardize their future to go all "win now" mode, but from my viewpoint I think they're trying to build a franchise that can be successful and sustain that success over time.
  13. The issue is the amount of touches they will get. The offense will be great, but they do throw a lot. Andy Reid always has, and always will. 2018: 282 RB carries, 69 receptions | Total: 351 2017: 290 RB carries, 90 receptions | Total: 380 2016: 327 RB carries, 66 receptions | Total: 393 The offense has been declining in RB touches each year. You have to assume that some other positional player will get a handful of touches (Darwin Thompson for instance). Even if we cap that at 15 touches, that leaves 168 total touches off last year (with a 50/50 split for McCoy & Williams). Even with 120 carries and 40 receptions, that's putting a RB in RB3 territory for a 12 team league. Unless the Chiefs heavily favor one of these guys, it's not very promising that they have standalone value unless one of them is not available or falls out of favor.
  14. What hosting site and what are the rest of the league settings?
  15. Andy Reid has said that he views both Williams and McCoy as the starting RBs. I would imagine they're going to split carries. They both have their knocks. Williams doesn't have a big body of work, questions about his ability to handle a full-time load. McCoy had a rough year in Buffalo last year under different circumstances than he's currently in, but also aging at a position that shows strong correlation between age and declining performance. I share your skepticism. It's a great fit for McCoy, not a great fit for fantasy purposes. Their standalone value will likely only be strong if either fails, gets injured or suspended.
  16. Don't understand how it's possible to come to terms on a contract within 9 minutes of the tampering period being opened.
  17. You think it looks bad for the Bills? They were willing to address one of the biggest deficiencies on their roster with one of the most talented WRs in the league. That speaks volumes to the fan base that they're going to seriously address these issues. I'd much rather the team try to get AB than to go into the season with Foster, Zay Jones and God knows who else as their only options. People were flipping out about the idea of Buffalo going after Devin Funchess, but nothing seems to be good enough anymore. As far as how it looks to everybody else. Who looks worse, the team that tried to acquire a star talent, or the player who posted on Social Media "if your team got guaranteed money... call me", then refused to go to the one team who was willing to give up the value Pittsburgh wants AND pay you... seems pretty clear to me. AB wanted guaranteed money. A team was willing to give it to him, but he thinks he's going to land on a playoff team who is going to pay top dollar to acquire him and pony up guaranteed cash. News flash, they're playoff teams for a reason, they generally don't have dire needs. As for your last point. Who is going to want to come here unless we overpay? When is the last time we had to overpay to get a guy? McCoy? I remember when we landed Jordan Poyer and Micah Hyde, they weren't Earth shattering moves, but they sure as well paid dividends. If a player is too ignorant to learn about the city/team trying to pursue him, then they really ought to stay the hell away.
  18. Teams don't let you negotiate with the agent of the player until they are close to a deal. Otherwise 10 teams expressing interest would be trying to negotiate contracts. Doesn't make much sense...
  19. There's been a lot of chatter about the Bills going after Dwayne Allen as a blocking TE. The big thing here is that we don't necessarily want to load up on rookies. We need some veterans to help out as we have a young QB. Rookie TEs generally don't make immediate impacts in their rookie seasons. There are always exceptions obviously, but for the most part they have a steep learning curve.
  20. Agree on that wholeheartedly. I didn't think Adams would ever be good tbh. I remember he couldn't hang onto a ball to save his life early on in his career. I don't think I've drafted him ever since
  21. I've heard this religious angle with Peterman but haven't seen anything definitive on it. And what other players were brought in (and confirmed to be) because of their religious faith?
  22. Does McDermott really love him? He's not going to throw his guys under the bus, so I expect him to only say positive or neutral things about a player. Obviously he can't say that a guy isn't NFL-caliber, otherwise why are we rostering him? From everything I understand, the Bills gave Josh Allen the opportunity to win the starting job in the preseason. When they played the Bengals the offense was annihilated, and so they rolled out with Peterman who had slightly more experience and is not supposed to be the QB of the future. Not to say that he was better, but they just (unwisely) invested the 7th overall pick in Allen so if he is not ready, there's no reason to rush him out there on an untalented offense behind a poor OL. Peterman absolutely should be released after this season. Josh Allen will get his shot in 2019, and I hope the team has a legitimate OL and some weapons on offense with the picks and cap space that they will have, but even then I'm pessimistic. We've seen some bad rookie performances followed up by breakthrough seasons (Jared Goff, Mitch Trubisky), but in those situations the team hired an innovative offensive mind for the QB's 2nd season. Do you see them getting rid of Daboll? It's hard to say he did a poor job when he was given no talent to work with. EJ Manuel recently made waves when he commented on how Peterman has a job in the NFL after his awful performances meanwhile Manuel is a free agent and has never played as poorly as Peterman has.
  23. I was shopping him around as well. A lot of people are weary of that QB situation and aren't biting. It's also difficult to trade a player heading into their bye week. But now that he's off the bye, someone may be interested. I have concerns about Eli finishing out the year. I had the feeling they were going to bench him, but then Lauletta got popped on that traffic infraction which may put him in the doghouse so I think that bought some time (if there was any risk at all, of course). I was looking for a Joe Mixon, Christian McCaffrey, James White (PPR) type player in return for him. There are not many RBs I would be comfortable moving for OBJ, and the ones I would be comfortable moving him for are valued higher (Gurley, Kamara, Barkley, Hunt, Gordon). Even if you don't need the RB help. RB talent is scarce, swapping OBJ for a top RB and then flipping him for a different top WR isn't the craziest thing you could do. After all, why would someone swap a top WR for OBJ? It's a lateral move for them, and one with some risk considering the QB situation.
