  1. What is Floyd's value in Dynasty? Is he cuttable there?
  2. used that one. use this code for $2 credit (for you and me...then go full on pyramid scheme and get one of your own to pass on).. JPVLD
  3. Some good thoughts in this thread, and it's hard to speculate on the emotional aspect. However, it's clear he's frustrated, and according to interviews 'not having fun anymore.' We've seen tons of cases of young players exploding on the scene at an early, NY press, Madden, TV spots. Suddenly a kid that wants to play football is being asked his opinion on things from his favorite pizza to world politics. I think it's alot to handle. As an owner of him in my leagues, I worried bigtime about the sudden massive fame. I don't see how it CAN'T affect him. My concern grows as he hasn't seemed to filter out the nonsense, exemplified by the CAR game at the end of 2015. It was worse than Cortland Finnegan getting into Andre Johnson. It was sadder b/c Cortland did that stuff because (at the time) I don't think his talent measured up to his ability to talk. The things that strike me as impacting his stats are simply splitting targets with (the very impressive) Sterling Shepherd and the returning Cruz (also impressive). He's also contending with guys like Norman and X.Rhodes week to week. (I believe the worst part of it is the (aggressive NY) press making it about ODB vs. Norman all week, instead of Giants vs. Washington.) Also, I'm no expert on play-calling or QB-ing, but Eli's handling of the McKadoo offense seem to have him dumping off or just throwing the ball into the dirt (esp vs. MIN). He must have thrown the ball down into the dirt 8 times. To me, this suggests HEY THE SCREEN GAME/SHORT PASSING GAME IS NOT WORKING. Talking heads suggested they were baited into that, and should have looked to do more medium crossing type routes in front of the safeties. Either way, Eli didn't seem comfortable and was not successful in running that offense. Hopefully he gets on speed dial with a S.Smiff Sr., some sort of generational player who also struggled with the media circus or just a professional mentor like L. Fitzgerald and learns how to tune it out. Take up meditation, stop talking to reporters, something. Otherwise, it wouldn't shock me to see him breakdown or walk away from the game.
  4. T.Pryor with Gordon news of going to rehab. Otherwise, Moncrief is the stash for me.
  5. M.Jones, Ebron, Boldin, Theo Riddick, Tate. Lots of balls, but lots of players to feed. Marvin is the deep guy, but the rest battle for the short stuff. I just think it's alot different than it was a year ago when he was first in line, vs. 3rd-4th for targets.
  6. Ian Rapoport ‏@RapSheet 4m4 minutes ago This is a bad one: The #Lions placed RB Ameer Abdullah (foot) on Injured Reserve. He spent yesterday in Charlotte with Dr. Robert Anderson.
  7. Better make that <um>, two.
  8. Chiefs’ Spencer Ware misses practice because of sprained toe
  9. Also for what it's worth, it seemed the game plan was to attack OAK on the outside; and it worked pretty well. Josh Hill got banged up, and this week they have the NYG who had Witten with like 15 targets last week (yah, it was Dak, but still). With a possible 90-100 point over/under, I'm giving him another roll this week.
  10. 2015 game log, showing exactly that:
  11. I was using Google Chrome browser in Windows to get the synch, and it did so quickly with Yahoo leagues, including very quick/easy verification of allowing the synch. Only issue, as mentioned, was starting roster requirements seems to be wrong.
  12. Not sure if this is a new issue, but imported my teams using newMyFBG from Yahoo, and it did not properly import our roster requirements. The 10 second primer seems to think we start 3 WR required, but we only have 2 required (then flex).
  13. I'm only in 2 leagues local leagues (low stakes) and both that I commish. I find that I only enjoy the personal aspect of the leagues, so work hard to have people I know (and like) in the league, ideally local. It's incredibly frustrating what you describe arguing, no respect/recognition of the work it takes to keep a league together, organized and informed (not to mention competitive). I did find that Fantasy, esp with alot of leagues, makes watching the games not as fun for me: something I'm reminded of every playoffs. When you made your orig post, I also was feeling the same exact way, and prob would feel the same way with what you describe above. I think for me, I may just relax the amount of time I spend on research...hopefully I can do that successfully this year.
  14. Bridgewater suffered a non-contact injury and was seeing on the ground, not moving and grabbing his left knee. Players immediately gathered around Bridgewater and the training staff and began praying. An ambulance was seen pulling into Winter Park to take Bridgewater to the hospital.
  15. how many do you have so far?
