  1. Thanks all. I didn't mention, because it didn't appear that he'd be available, but I snatched up Josh Gordon off of waivers at some point last year and have him stashed on my bench. He could be intriguing option as my WR3.
  2. Its kind of a flawed system, honestly. Typically, if you have three legit keepers, you probably did well the previous year and are drafting at the end of the round (like me this year). Which means you are sacrificing a lesser first round pick to keep a good/great player. The argument is that it helps the good teams and hurts the bad ones. From 1.01 to 1.06ish it probably doesn't make sense to keep three. In my case, I'm fairly certain that if I let Jordy or Cam go, they wouldn't even be available to me at 1.12, so why not just hang onto one of them.
  3. Thanks for all your thoughts-good stuff. I should add that we are keep 2 league, with an option to keep a third. If you keep the third player you sacrifice your first round pick (basically equal to a third round pick in redraft). I won my league last year so I pick 1.12, 2.01. I'd be sacrificing my 1.12 pick. Still think it's worth it for me to keep a third, but maybe not. Obviously it depends on projecting who will be there at my pick-just too early for that.
  4. 12-Team, .5 PPR League. Standard Scoring, 6 pts all TD's. Start: QB, RB, RB, WR, WR, TE, WR/RB/TE, K, DEF Keeping: Odell Beckham and Antonio Brown. Can keep one more of the following: Jordy Nelson, Arian Foster, Cam Newton, Jordan Reed or Greg Olsen. I'm leaning toward Olsen or Reed right now, but the thought of being able to trot out 3 (ODB, Brown, Nelson) of the top 8 Wr's in the league every week makes me warm inside. Thoughts?
  5. With Ryan Mathews' health always a question and Sproles being 47 years old, I'd be interested in the Birds giving him a shot. They really could use the help at RB.
  6. Nelson Agholor accused of raping a dancer at Cheerleaders per Mikey Miss show.... http://www.phillymag.com/news/2016/06/10/nelson-agholor-rape-cheerleaders/
  7. I think that the scenario is the exact opposite of what you are saying. Its the same reason that a few years ago, Jimmy Graham was the most valuable player in FF. He so drastically outscores your opponent's TE on a weekly basis that combining him with a WW WR still gives you a net positive against any team that doesn't own Gronk and maybe Olsen.
  8. Talk about overplaying your hand. Obviously, no interest from any team out there-Denver, the reigning SB champ, trading up for Lynch and most likely trotting Butt-Fumble out to start the season speaks volumes about Bradford.
  9. At this point I agree, unfortunately. Prior to Condon demanding a trade, I'd have thought otherwise. In the end though, as with everything, its only good for the Eagles if it benefits the Eagles. Giving him away for a ham sandwich doesn't do much.
  10. When Wentz goes #1, you'll see some drama...
  11. It's not getting old. It's very relevant IMO to the point many are trying to make. No one disagrees that going to Denver would be a better situation for Sam. But who cares? The point is that he's a former #1 overall pick that has drastically under-performed his entire career. He doesn't have the gravitas to pull this ####. He deserves to be questioned by fans and its not just "Philly fans". He's been taking it from guys at NFLN and ESPN as well, so its not just some hyper-local fanatic stuff. The dude's never gone .500 but he's trying to big time the team that just handed him 11 million because, to use his agent's words, "he'd like to forego" any competition or fan/team mate scrutiny. get ####ed. News flash, you aren't TO.
  12. Denver walking away from trade talks with Eagles.
  13. Looks like Denver is out...
  14. I might be wrong, but wasn't Warner in NY when they traded all the way up to grab Eli? Also, I disagree that Bradford doesn't control his own destiny. If he plays lights out and the birds make a deep playoff run, he makes it very hard for the FO to bounce him. At least I believe that to be the case. Wentz is the presumptive long term starter for this team, but all Sam needs to do is play effectively and he'll have a spot. Look at Seattle-Matt Flynn was paid big bucks to come in as the presumptive starter a few years ago. You might say that a team giving a Free Agent QB $26 million is a non-starter for another QB to have a future with said team. But Wilson outplayed him, Seattle came to their senses, admitted that he EARNED the spot and Flynn stayed on the bench. There is precedent for this beyond Kurt Warner.
