  1. American Matador Association
  2. This is my dilemma. I think Woodhead will get a lot of catches, but play less snaps than DWill. What's the chances DWill sits for Dri Archer in passing downs and when/if PIT falls behind tonight? I don't think it's a clear start DWill.
  3. Need help. DWill or Woodhead? 1 PPR. Thanks for your advice.
  4. You gave way too much for Gronk. I generally like all Gronk deals but this one is over the top looney. It might even be a full AJ Green Heavy Agreed I third this. Minus AJ and it would have been fair. Why can't I get trade offers like this one?!?
  5. You play fantasy football to make money? Are you a professional then? How much do you make a year? Enough to pay taxes on?
  6. 1) We don't care how you obtained Hillman 2) The return for Hillman seems about right
  7. Melvin Gordon + Devante Freeman + 3rd rounder for Kevin White + Duke Johnson
  8. Sell it for a free league buy in to anyone picking late who's interested
  9. So you start a Team D and IDPs. LOL!!!!!! The team sucks BTW
  10. 40 to 18. We have a winner!! By a landslide!!
  11. I'm in several leagues that changed to PPR from non-PPR.....like always with change there is resistance, but once it happened I never heard one peek out of any owners not liking PPR. It seems those that still player non-PPR are stuck in the old way of doing things and resist change. I imagine that the majority of those playing in non-PPR haven't even played in a PPR league. 25 PPR and 15 non-PPR
  12. So the top 7 picks aren't still RBs and Gronk? Nothing has changed there are even fewer top tier RBs meaning a top 6 pick has an even more outrageous advantage over the back half of the pack.Standard scoring is literally be a top 6 pick or lose, the scoring system. FBGs top 12 non-PPR has 6 RBs, 1 TE & 5 WRs. Back when PPR was first being implemented that was unheard of. It was 11 RBs and Randy Moss in the 1st round.Play whatever you want, I prefer to not add PPR. And I can win a league drafting from late in the 1st in non-PPR, thank you. Well most of my leagues aren't filled with fish, so everything is important. Yes, I must play with fish. My 8 year old, 14 team redraft is filled with those. I won last year from the 12 spot, since you're concerned.Now back to your other misinformation about how the top 7 non-PPR is presently constructed - RB,RB,TE,RB,WR,RB,WR. Again, that was unheard of when PPR was first being implemented. What matters more is what happens down the road in the 2nd and 3rd rounds. It's clear that you only see it one way, so I'm not going to spend the time explaining it. Sorry, I thought you were asking for opinions. Instead you seem to be looking to confirm your previously conceived belief.I prefer non-ppr. We were expressing opinions, but using words like "misinformed" and using smug comments like "I must play with fish" and "I can win the league from drafting late", etc are way more than expressing opinions. We all know you love non-PPR.......but you are in the minority. Looks like a 70% PPR vote right now. That's a landslide! Non-PPR seems like the one that is obsolete.

Standard scoring is literally be a top 6 pick or lose, the scoring system. Agreed......you need to have a top half of the draft pick to win the league. In non-PPR, if you are a top 5 pick you are guaranteed a bell cow RB (which only increases in value in non-PPR) and then one of the top WR's.....gaining you a statistical advantage off the bat in 2 if not 3 positions. Top WR's rarely fall back to you in that same spot in PPR leagues. That's the way it should be. If you don't draw a top 5-6 pick or so in non-PPR you are starting at an extreme disadvantage. Now if you play auction, non-PPR is okay I guess......but I'm willing to bet most people play in "Standard PPR leagues"
  15. I couldn't disagree more. The top 5-6 players in most PPR drafts are still RBs and PPR allows WR's to start being taken in the late first/early second over 2nd tier RB's. In non-PPR leagues if you are picking at the end of the first round, you are almost forced to take two 2nd tier RB's knowing that there are so many RBBC's out there making you screwed if you don't. In PPR you can take the actual best players on the board (which are the top WRs) picking near the back end turn, because you can get valuable pass catching RB's later in the draft. MOST IMPORTANTLY, these days there are WAY too many RBBC's that the number of valuable RB's is low in non-PPR......PPR makes guys like Woodhead, Spiller, Gio, Ellington valuable commodities. Non-PPR is the obsolete type of league.
