  1. Ware has been rostered for weeks in my league (14 teams). What about Damien Williams? Worth a stash, just in case? I assume he would be the next man up.
  2. Should I worry about starting Lynch with the injury? I could sub in John Ross and hope for a long TD. Or Emmanuel Sanders, which might be safer. My gut is to roll with Lynch, but I can't call it.
  3. I am picking 3 in a 14-teamer. No PPR, old-school redrdaft league that used to be 1 QB, 2 RB, 2 WR, 1 TE, 1 D & 1 K. However, in our 24th season, we are switching to flex this year -- have to start 1 RB, 1 WR, 1 TE and then the other two starting spots can be any combination of RB/WR/TE. I too was taking whichever RB dropped to me of the big 3, but now that has changed. Was thinking Brown, but historically, WR1 ranks 6th overall, after the top 5 RBs, according to our scoring system. Which RB to take here is now a big deal. My next 4 are McCoy, Freeman and Gordon and I don't really see another who could slip into the conversation for that spot among RBs. Our draft is Thursday and when it's time to pull the trigger, I don't know if I can take McCoy. I'm guessing the Audible guys would preach McCoy too. Do the trades Buffalo just made affect him? Or does it make him even more of a lock?
  4. So I just got this year's app, which I always love. My draft isn't until the Tuesday before the season starts, but I like to use the Dominator for mocks between now and then. First mock, picking 13 of 14, redraft, serpentine...the first two rounds were pretty normal. However, in the 3rd, QBs went with 10 straight picks and 11 of 13 in the round. Never seen this out of the app before. And we only give 3 points for TDs passes, so definitely weird to see Eli, Brady, Rivers, etc. go so high. Just thought I'd share. It's obviously early and I'm sure the kinks will get worked out. If I possibly have some settings way off, please let me know. Thanks!
  5. I didn't read the rest of this thread for fear of spoilers from those who may have watched it on DirectTV, but the last episode was great. I don't know what it takes to win an Emmy, but the kid that plays Matt Saracen (Zach Gilford) earned his stripes in this one. Good stuff.
  6. If the stadium tour guide's name is Tony, he doesn't have a right hand. Don't embarrass yourself like I did.Some neat FREE things you can do: -Huge panel of the Berlin Wall on 53rd St. I think between 5th and 6th, but possibly a block east. -Sam Adams' tombstone is at Trinity Church. -Gutenberg Bible at NY Public Library. -See The Dakota at 72nd and Central Park West, where John Lennon was shot. -Ride the Staten Island Ferry. Yes it's free and offers great Statue of Liberty and Downtown views. -See the Seinfeld diner at 110th 112th St. and B'way. -Visit President Grant's tomb in Riverside Park. I'll try to think of some more. I've lived here for 20 years and never knew about those first three... thanks! If you go up to the Seinfeld Diner, also go to Columbia University 116th & Bwy, Cathedral of St John the Divine (largest Gothic church in the US) at Amsterdam & 112th (down the street from Tom's Restaurant). - Boat Basin Cafe- Riverside Park and 79th st, nice scene for getting a drink or burger/dog while watching the sunset. - WTC site... go check out all the progress they've made - Ellis island is actually very cool to check out. - I'll back the Coney Island trip- take in a freak-show too if they're still around (been awhile since I've been out there) - Drinks/Tapas on the Lower East Side. I'll also try and think of more. Definite must if you're up there. Also, take a lap around The Cathedral School grounds (if facing the church steps, just to the right). They have at least 3 peacocks that roam the grounds -- pretty cool to see in the middle of NYC!jammy -- in Prospect Park, take the electric boat tour through the Lullwater. Very cool. The Prospect Park Zoo is great too, very underrated. And then there is Lefferts Historic House, which was built in the 18th century and offers a glimpse into New York City history. Also, eat at Mary's Fish Camp (just Google it). It's a little pricey, but the Lobster Roll is well worth it. Also go to the Chocolate Room after for desert. Ask for Naomi & John and tell them Mike Mohr sent you. If you have some time, take a tour of the Sixpoint Brewery. Easily some of the best beers I've tasted, this is something I have wanted to do for awhile, but keep putting off. Sixpoint website Zowned -- Arturo's Pizza, corner of Houston & Thompson. Thank me later. Best pizza in NYC.
