  1. IIRC, they also said they weren't interested in Ben Tate a couple hours before they put a WW claim in on him. I don't recall reading that anywhere. Link? Either way, the Colts don't sign players with Rice's baggage. PFFT, save me the Colts homerism. Remember Dominic Rhodes? Beat his live in girlfriend, was placed in the diversionary program to avoid prosecution. Colts kept him on the team until the DUI. Plenty of Colts in trouble the past few years.
  2. Hey, don't forget the other 110 players with more TDs than McCoy. That number should only increase after today. Good times. At least next week I get Denard back so I can put McCoy back on the bench.
  3. Has it really come to this? It's bad idea to play RGIII over Colt McCoy? His injury was supposedly a 6-8 week injury and sunday will be 7 weeks. Teammates have said that he looked ready to return 2 weeks ago. I have to agree. Seems like everyone's mind is made up that he is coming back 'too soon' or 'still injured'. I don't see the evidence for that and the previous regime is no longer in town. Not saying he is a good start necessarily, but that is a separate concern.
  4. I agree with this, and that is what causes a lot of dissension on a fantasy board. For me, he is a fine fantasy QB because of volume, but in the NFL, he simply seems to take too long processing information and really doesn't handle pressure, or even the threat of pressure, very well.
  5. Exactly, and with those touches he could land in RB2/RB3 territory and be even better in PPR. And if you factor dynasty into it, he could potentially hold that role for the next few years with the limited usage he has on his body to date. Not bad for the price of a mid-season waiver claim.
  6. That would be Jones, and I don't think it's close. Sanu has been underwhelming, and if you look at the production in the last 4 games in 2013: Jones: 19/254/3 Sanu: 10/93/1 it is clear that Jones had already passed him. For the entire 2013 season, despite the fact that Jones' snaps were very limited in the first 5 games, he had 10 TD's to Sanu's 2. More importantly, Jones is a red-zone beast. Last year, he had 14 red-zone targets, caught 12 of them, 9 for TD's. So far this year, the Bengals have a grand total of 1 TD pass in the red-zone. Andy Dalton caught it. Think they're excited to have Jones back?? Its worth mentioning 4 of those 10 tds came in a single game. How does that change anything? A couple of them don't count because they were all in one game? It certainly doesn't change the answer to the question of which is the receiver to own. Pretty clear to me. In my league only the first two TDs count each week. It's called the anti-big game bonus. Helps keep all the games close. In fairness to the question - I think Jones has shown a ton, for only being in half the offensive snaps last year. Yes, this is a run first team and yes AJ Green is on the other side and yes there are a lot of offensive weapons. But I think some are still underselling just how good this kid looked last year. This is only his third year and he really progressed last season. I don't think it is too much of a stretch to see him as a WR2/3 the rest of the way. Something like 675/4.5, that would be right in the neighborhood.
  7. For dynasty purposes the only thing that matters to me is if he can still produce decently with increased touches. In two years, I might have traded my whole team away and traded half of them back.
  8. Is it really so surprising? Take everyone that was on board in 2009 and subtract those burned in 2010, then remove those burned in 2011, make sure to take off all those burned in 2012 and finally get rid of everyone burned in 2013. Now look around at all the empty seats, is it still surprising?
  9. The Bill gave two 1sts and a 4th The Bills got pick 4. The Bills traded two 1sts and a 4th for pick 4. Pick 4 = Watkins. When you say they "traded a 1st and 4th for the right to move up 5 spots", you are right. When other people say "the bills traded pick 9, a 2015 1st, and a 2014 4th for Watkins", they are also right. It's like people arguing if some 500 pound guy is "big" or "large". You're both right. It could be that he is just 'big boned'.
  10. What are you suggesting here? That this worked out to the benefit of all sides? That isn't an option on these boards. Pick a side, bash the other, refuse to listen to any cognitive discussions, trash rationale perspectives... Become a "hater" or a "fanboy", your choice, but don't suggest this lunacy.
  11. Don't think this is necessary. I am personally not blown away by Dalton and feel that he is more a product of all the weapons around him, rather than the opposite, but I think we can all agree that this type of post isn't especially helpful.
  12. I don't know, but I must be losing perspective. When I read the title of the thread it says worst dynasty trade you have been offered, but when I read some of these, my reaction is simply meh... Are these really the worst you have ever been offered?
  13. Dalton is actually following a similar career path to Brees...but also Sanchez. I'm not sold on him, especially with the number of INT's. For me this is a make or break year that will be very telling. Come on now. Dalton is no Sanchez. Give the kid SOME credit. Sure he looks better but Sanchez never had AJ Green. In his 3rd year Sanchez threw 27 TD's and looked like he was turning the corner. I agree with the point that this is the year for Dalton. I think oftentimes we tend to cherry pick one stat to 'validate' our position and only assume that said player will continue either trending up or down. Very rarely do we suggest a player will stop progressing or actually change their trajectory. For me, there is a bit of a disconnect between his fantasy and NFL value. He was a decent fantasy option last year, but I was less than impressed with his overall bearing during some games, especially when things were more difficult.
  14. That is a great story. I love that Jimbo has the stones to throw out his star QB and I also love how Winston publicly handled it. No crying or whining, just winning a championship.
  15. Me too. I think he's one of only a few QBs worth 1st round rookie draft consideration. I am very intrigued to see what situation he gets drafted into. I feel he has a chance to be a dynamic play maker in the NFL In our dynasty league QBs have been creeping up the draft board, partially due to 6 point TDs. As 5000/40 becomes more the norm, dynasty owners need to re-evaluate their priorities. It used to be 3 to 4 out of the top 5 were always RBs, but that has long since changed. The teams making the playoffs each year have Brees, Manning, etc. And the teams trying to unseat them are looking for the next Rodgers.
