  1. I saw a documentary at some point about how they pull that together live. He wears running shoes with his suit on air and apparently is an encyclopedia of football knowledge.

  3. been a brutal year. every year the 12-1 team seems to get bumped by a team of week 13 pickups. hopefully your league pays out for high scores or division winners during reg season. highest scoring team in our playoffs played Bilal Powell and Ty Montgomery at RB and are advancing to playoffs.
  4. I think rule 1 is that your Hosting Software dictates the rules everyone plays under...so if Yahoo does tiebreakers one way, everyone is governed by that (regardless of what your bylaws on a Word document state). Rule 2 is that everyone in the league is responsible for checking your Hosting Software settings, ideally in August, before the season starts. If a setting is discovered to be incorrect (and is possible to be changed) and discovered mid-game-weekend, then you change it for the following week (no retroactive scoring changes). In your case, you have to leave it (since Yahoo can't change it), plus noone discovered it until after the games kicked off for the weekend.
  5. What is Floyd's value in Dynasty? Is he cuttable there?
  6. 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
  7. 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 age....money, 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.
  8. T.Pryor with Gordon news of going to rehab. Otherwise, Moncrief is the stash for me.
  9. 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.
  10. 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.
  11. Better make that <um>, two.
  12. http://www.kansascity.com/sports/nfl/kansas-city-chiefs/article101822092.html Chiefs’ Spencer Ware misses practice because of sprained toe
  13. 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.

  15. 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.
