  1. A grade doesn't mean #### when a player runs himself out of the league due to his behavior, or in the every least, drastically shortens his window of opportunity (e.g. while those physical tool ratings are still relevant) because of that behavior. See one Justin Blackmon. What good is his draft grade doing him these days?
  2. I'm a little confused by this... Soooo, when the Saints were "pigeonholing" him as a #1, they sure as hell weren't targeting him as a #1. He only had one double digit target game this season prior to week 15. So they will more heavily target a non-#1 option?
  3. I wouldnt be hoping they get crushed. That would lead to an early day, not a lot of Brees yards. Guy is a gamer, but he isn't stupid. You should hope for a shootout, which the Jax offense/defense could easily provide in the dome. Yep. If the Saints get "crushed" & are down by, say, 3 scores, I can see Brees getting pulled off the field.
  4. even if he does, who has the guts to start him? I'm rolling with FItzpatrick and hoping for the best. In one league, me... My only alternative, literally, is Hasselbeck, who has been going down in production every start & has abut 3 different injuries himself. If the Saints were on the road this week, I'd roll w/ Hass, but at the Super Dome, against the Jags, I pretty much have to roll the dice w/ Brees unless we get rumors before early kickoffs that he'll be inactive. (I'm an underdog + I started Gates on TNF)
  5. Agreed. this would be crucial for many owners. I like FBG, been a subscriber for a few years now, but one of my three leagues is a week 17 league and it always pisses me off how they literally don't even care about week 17. There is no news, no updates on who is starting and who isn't. Sucks that it is now in week 16 as well. Brees is big for me with Odell out since right now, I have Watson (Jax terrible against TEs) and Cooks in my lineup (3 WR/TEs plus Flex, which in PPR is usually a WR/TE, especially this year with all the RB injuries). Watson hasn't practiced, so might be an easier decision, but Cooks might not be a good play without Brees, huh? What Brees updates are you expecting right now? Yeah, I understand being disappointed by the lack of updates/advice in general, but the Brees situation is pretty clear: he hasn't practiced all week, we may or may not know whether he's active before kickoff of the early games. IMO, even if it sounds like he's going to be active, one's risk tolerance has to be exceedingly high to risk starting him. FWIW, in one league, I am still on the fence, but that's because Hasselbeck is literally the only alternative I have. If could choose from anyone else, other than guys like Keenum/Mallet/ and probably Manziel, I'm 99% sure I'd go w/ the alternative.
  6. He won't play. I'm not expecting him to play; I just don't understand why a Saints team that is going nowhere feels the need to play games regarding player status. I question the real impact of such machinations in general, actually.
  7. Please don't be screwing w/ us Drew.... #Saints QB Drew Brees tells reporters he has a grade 2 plantar fascia tear. "I'm going to play" he says via @nick_underhill & @TheSaintsBeat — Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) December 24, 2015
  8. Been a big Miller supporter all season. I'd roll with Karlos in this one. I cant see putting Miller in over anyone who I think will get 15+ touches. Too much lunacy in South Florida right now. This is what I'm doing. I actually feel very good about having this option. Cowboys run D is a sieve, and they have nothing to play for on the road, in the cold. I'll be very surprised if Karlos isn't a top 5 RB this week.
  9. I'm surprised that so many would be surprised if the suspension is overturned. I've been thinking it's a 50/50 proposition; the presumed behind the scenes arm-twisting and cajoling from various circles fascinates the hell out of me.
  10. It's more about Ryan than the matchup Julio potentially has against Norman, but that horse was beaten death before the week 14 matchup.
  11. #Saints QB Drew Brees MRI that revealed torn plantar fascia in right foot. Awaiting opinion of Dr Robert Anderson, also treating P Manning. — Ed Werder (@Edwerderespn) December 22, 2015 Source tells me #Saints QB Drew Brees hopes to play final 2 games but injury is to foot he plants when throws. Expected to be day-to-day — Ed Werder (@Edwerderespn) December 22, 2015
  12. He was fined earlier this year when he punched that Bills player... Not at all sure what kind of weight will be given to that prior offense.
  13. The cynical side of me thinks the league issued this suspension to send a message, knowing full well it'll be overturned, thus enabling ODB to be on the field for the Sunday night game in Minny.
  14. I forgot that ODB was fined earlier this season for punching that Bills player. I figure that will suffice as a pre-existing bad act for purposes of denying overturning the suspension.
