  1. My league gives a third of a point per reception, other scoring parameters being the standard 1 yard = .1 pt., TD = 6 pts stuff. We have no designated TE position, they are considered WRs. Start 1 RB, 1 WR/TE, and then three RB/WR/TE. Lineup is: RB Devonta Freeman, Atl WR/TE Rob Gronkowski, NE FLEX Alex Collins, Bal FLEX Kenyan Drake, Mia FLEX To be announced I was using Rex Burkhead in the final spot, but with him out options are: Carlos Hyde, SF Elijhaa Penny, Ari Keelan Cole, Jax Mike Wallace, Bal Greg Olsen, Car If Jeremy Maclin is out Saturday (currently doubtful), I think I'm leaning toward Wallace. Kerwynn Williams and Allen Hurns possibly playing cloud the prospects of Cole and Penny. Olsen's foot injury has me wary, plus plugging in two TEs and hoping for a lot of points just seems weird. Hyde seems like a lock for 5-6 points, but his ceiling is probably 70 yds and a chance at a TD. Just want to make sure I've covered all my bases here. Thanks!
  2. Anyone have any insight on his calf injury? He got free and clear of the injury report for one glorious week, but now he's back on it with the calf injury (as well as being sick). Is the calf something he's been playing through for a couple weeks or is it a new injury?
  3. We use two IDPs per team in my league, and there's always a huge glut of 100+defensive guys hovering right around VDB value of 0. It gets hard to see who's left skill position-wise when they're surrounded by so many defensive players. Is there some way I can get DD to ignore these guys in the player pool? I tried setting the numbers of IDP starters to 0, but that takes them out of the pool and I'd have to enter them by hand during the draft.
  4. I had a draft this past Tuesday. Last night I updated the DD file for the league to get new projections, and DD sent everyone drafted back to the FA pool. Is this happening to anyone else?
  5. DD leaves off Week 17 by default, if I'm not mistaken. That might explain the difference in the PD points and the DD points.
  6. Can the DD handle fractions in the number of roster spots? I have a 16-team, 16-man draft where 36 QBs were drafted last year, an average of 2.25. If I enter 2.25 as the number of QB roster spots, will the DD give three teams 2 QBs and another team 3 QBs? I ask mainly because we had 22 kickers (1.38/team) and 21 defenses (1.31/team) drafted last year, and I had the maximum roster spots set at 1 for each of those postions. Assuming that my league's draft pattern holds this year, I'd like to account for those extra players that would be drafted.
  7. The 'Powers' series by Brian Michael Bendis is basically a police procedural set in Metropolis or Marvel's version of New York City, centered around the detectives who have to investigate supercrimes. It's a fun read.
  8. In a related note, does the ADP actually represent my league settings, or is it a generic 10- or 12-team ADP list? For example, is the ADPs listed for my 16-team draft actually based on 16 teams?
  9. Yeah, the iphone, while a great mobile device still has very sucky battery life. And I thought the 3GS had a much better battery life, sounds like it's still crap. I would advise getting a car charger or one of those portable ones, or better yet both lol. I take my charger everywhere I go for this very reason.the phone is awesome - I really love it - just feel like I cant use it far from home base do to this issue - wondering if im alone cause they were touting battery life.The battery does have a longer life -- if you keep it turned off, disable a lot of the features, just make a couple of calls a day on it, etc. It's unreasonable to have all these extra features on the phone and expect people NOT to use them.The phone itself is just a major energy hog, but it sounds like you're actually getting pretty good battery life based on what you're doing with it.My phone is constantly shuffling from the home charger, to the car charger to the office charger.I've seen some oversized iPhone cases on amazon (and maybe Best Buy) that have an additional battery built into them. This giant-sized battery is supposed to give you more run time, so that could be an option for you.
  10. So they pimp out the tethering feature and brag about how many countries they are active in, but don't mention the U.S. by name. So... no tethering in the U.S.?
  11. There's carrying cases that have a flip-over piece to help protect your screen in your pocket, purse, etc. That might help you out.
  12. Slacker is a pretty good app if you want to listen to music. You probably won't find any new bands using it like you would on Pandora, but sometimes I just want to hear what I know, not what I 'should' like.
  13. So if I was thinking about getting an iPhone, should I wait until this summer? I don't want to get one and it be dated two months after I buy it.
  14. The wife is wanting us to upgrade to a pair of iPhones. What's the scouting report on using an iPhone for fantasy sports?
  15. Any reviews of the Cylon Detector app? It looked pretty sweet from the promos during Battlestar Galactica.
