  1. I have Diggs in a bunch of places because I’ve not been able to quit him for ~3 years now, but I still keep wondering if this is a sell high opportunity. He’s great, but I really don’t believe in Allen just yet and the matchups have been pretty favourable. We’ll see, and maybe I’m just being overly negative but I can’t shake the feeling the floor is going to drop out at some point (similar to how I feel about Cooper in the one league I have him). I realize this is not insightful or based on anything tangible.
  2. Clearly none of us actually know, but I'm banking on him being a top back again/am trying to trade for him with the uncertainty depressing his value. Could obviously blow up in my face because the cost is going to be high, but hey, that's why we play Fantsy Football right?
  3. There's no way man, and I wish you were right. He gets at least 2-3 years to burn the franchise down.
  4. Second week in a row I played him over Gronk. Can't really believe I'm saying that.
  5. No-- the debate is who is the better running back. I have Conner in pretty much every league I play in, and I am banking on him effectively being a league winner for me. I do not intend any disrespect to the player when I say this, but Conner is not nearly the talent that Bell is and it is easily visible when you watch them. You can debate whether top talent is worth top dollar vs money spent elsewhere and there are other things you can nitpick, but you seem to be trying to argue that Conner and Bell are equivalent. You're going to struggle with that.
  6. Agreed. Unless you're stacked at RB and thin at WR, Cook can't get any lower in cost and I don't think Kupp can get any higher in stock.
  7. It's all team dependent. I had Mixon, Conner, D Johnson, White and Breida in a PPR redraft. I felt comfortable trading Kerryon + some other pieces to bolster my WRs. It absolutely could blow up in my face if he ends up being an RB1 this year-- but that's why I got some nice WRs back. I still have Kerryon in another league so I'm rooting for him, but right now he's a rookie that had one decent game in the NFL, on a team that got smoked by the Jets, lost to a mediocre 49rs and just turned in one stalwart game. We don't really know what the Lions are this year, and we don't know what Kerryon is which gives us a wide range of outcomes. If you can package that risk and sell to someone who is assuming his upper range of outcomes, I think that's a good move.
  8. What did you do? Team dependent of course, but in my league where I have Kupp, I personally would do that trade.
  9. I have no vested interest in Cook but I'd be interested in buying him low if people think this is the rest of his season. Vikings offense looked legit yesterday and the Rams have made most opponents look stupid this year. Combined with an awful game against Buffalo and injuries we've seen the absolute floor for Cook/Minnesota RBs. I think better times are ahead this year especially once the schedule starts to lighten up and he rounds into form.
  10. I traded Kerryon in a package for some WRs in one league, and have him in another. To me you're crazy if you wouldn't swap him for Mixon of the above (I have Mixon in the same league I have Kerryon so this is not an issue for me). I think Cook or Freeman are pretty tough to turn down too.
  11. I talked myself into Cooper being a ppr machine this year. Sight.
  12. It's like he's daring them to play Rosen.
  13. Is Rosen really worse than this? Bradford looks cooked.
  14. Think the Cleveland D is legit, his weapons are mediocre, and he's 21. Give him some time.
  15. Agreed at the top tier. What about the tier below it though? e.g. a Thielen? I still think it's worth the trade but less no brainer and could definitely explode in your face.
