  1. Diontae wouldn't crack the lineup. WRs are Julio, Evans, A Rob and Kupp. Chubb wasn't easy, but my RBs are Gurley, Mixon, Drake, Mostert pre-draft. Chubb finished RB24 in PPG after Hunt came back. It's a contending roster that finished 2nd in '19 after a championship in '18. QB play was too erratic and I made a decision for a better team moving forward, not just 2020. QBs don't fall in our drafts like usual drafts, it's somewhere between PPR and SF. I'm also loaded for bear in 2021 with 3 firsts.
  2. Nah, Nick. Not a SF league, but a 6 pt per TD QB league so QBs are vital for long-term success. I needed a QB to build around as Rodgers has been fading the last two years.
  3. Traded back from early 2nd to early 3rd and gained Gardner Minshew. Traded back from early 2nd to mid 3rd and gained Kenyan Drake. Then packaged Chubb and Diontae Johnson for Joe Burrow post draft.
  5. Because I am acting commish and both have reached out to me. Double-checking to see if there is anything to revisit in the offseason that would strengthen our constitution for future reference.
  6. We have a Gentleman's Agreement in our constitution that says compete to the ultimate fairness allowable. We added it several years ago when someone tanked in the playoffs by starting backups and players on IR after he was out of payout contention. That same year one of the other GMs grabbed a player that was dropped after cutdown date (it's a keeper league). Anyway, it was a general agreement because we can't cover every conceivable scenario in our constitution. It was to cover the "you didn't say I couldn't do it" mindset. This is much easier, IMO, he competing for payout and has every right to place the claim. Thanks for everyone's input.
  7. Waivers processed last night and Breshad Perriman was claimed by the team playing for 3rd in our league. He obviously had the highest waiver claim. I am playing the #1 seed in the championship, I am the #2 seed, also acting commish. Third place does have a payout, BTW. #1 seed lost Godwin last week and was sitting 11th in the waiver order. He obviously wanted Perriman with the hamstring injury to Godwin. I was 12th in waiver and also put in a claim. I knew there was the slimmest of chances he would be there. #1 seed is upset the GM claimed Perriman since he was not competing in the championship, that he shouldn't get in the way of the two teams playing for the crown. "Piss poor chicken #### etiquette" is the terminology being used. I am of the opinion that either of the two teams competing for 3rd/payout have just as much right to work their waiver priorities as anyone else. It seems simple to me. However, I pose the topic to the forum for discussion.
  8. Thielen is back and I am going back and forth between the two...
  9. Have been pleased with Hooper and picked Henry up off of WW this week. Was fishing a little for Kelce early in the year, but backed off since I'm getting good production there.
  10. Yeah, it was far from a blockbuster trade. I like Corey Davis, too. The QB/offense in Tennessee is gonna throttle him.
  11. Traded Corey Davis for him this week. Neither have done anything so far. Hoping for better production in the coming weeks.
  14. I've taken my shot with Campbell in dyno. In two years Hilton will be 31, turning 32 during the season. Luck the same. I want Luck's possible new #1.
  15. I got lucky, he wasn't on my radar in last month's rookie draft. Once he started getting buzz and I went to search him, he was already rostered. Then, the owner dropped him and I pounced. He's now tracking at 27 on MFL since June in PPR leagues.
  16. Chubb can catch, they just need to use him that way. Check the over the shoulder TD...
  17. Own him as a handcuff to Gurley in dyno. It's sensible insurance even though I think the hype for him is wild right now.
  18. We drop 5, draft 5. Every draft pick transaction includes a draft pick from the trade partner to ensure only 5 picks per team.
  19. To be clear, I do not have JJSS, he was taken in the 2nd after the following WRs: Corey Davis(1.06), John Ross(1.08), Mike Williams(1.09), Zay Jones(1.10). I took Samaje Perine the pick before JuJu. It hurts less to miss on a 2nd than a 1st obviously, especially when you have 3 in this hypothetical from OP.
  20. All leagues vary, those are just examples from my own. You can use this tool: to see where those and other guys eventually planed out in those years. If you do a deep dive into the ADPs, you'll see where a lot of potential is waiting in the 2nd and beyond.
  21. Two other things that help me decide to trade back: 1. I follow MFL's ADPs for rookies regularly as my draft approaches. If a player I want, Fant, for example, is tracking around 8-10, I am not taking him at 1.03. I had that pick and traded back to 1.10, also picking up the 2.02. Fant went at 1.09 and I missed out, but I netted Parris Campbell and Andy Isabella with those picks... 2. I use this as a guide, always have a current value for the players/picks in your league. It helps to keep your objective: If the offer you received nets you a positive on your scale above, you can accept the trade. Anyways, it's worked for me the last couple of years and I have a pretty good bounty of future firsts.
  22. He was falling pretty hard after Cleveland took him. People were thinking the backfield was too muddled and they didn't know when he'd get his shot. I was surprised he fell that far, so I pounced.
  23. Some of my better picks have come in the 2nd round, and quite a few cornerstone players in the league were 2nd or even 3rd round picks. It's a relative situation, though. You have a 1st that could net you a Saquon Barkley, you hold. I have a philosophy to trade back once rookie fever hits to garner future picks and I've found that having cash when the ATM/Card Machine is down is king... Examples of non-first rounders in my dyno league that would make a formidable lineup: QB: Mahomes(3rd), Trubisky(2nd) RB: Kamara(3rd), Chubb(2nd), Conner(4th), Cohen(WW), Lindsey(WW) WR: Smith-Schuster(2nd), Dante Pettis(3rd), Cooper Kupp(3rd), Keenan Allen(3rd), Tyreek Hill(WW), Kenny Golladay(WW) TE: Kelce(2nd), Kittle(WW) More often than not, I'm taking those three 2nds.
  24. I traded back from 1.03 to 1.10 and an early 2nd and he was my target. However, he went at 1.09. I was a little tweaked, but Parris Campbell was sitting there, so that is not a bad consolation in my book.
