  1. I really don't understand why there would be any kind of market for Cutler at the Jets or anywhere else for that matter. At this point, Cutler is a known "bad chemistry" guy and he's been pretty bad on the field lately as well. Why wouldn't a QB needy team just target Jimmy G, Glennon, Tyrod or Romo? Who on earth would want Cutler over any of those guys? To me Cutler is about as appealing as Kaepernick right now and I don't see teams rushing to sign Kaepernick. I just don't get this idea that Cutler will be handed a starter job somewhere when there aren't that many openings to begin with (even before taking the draft into account).
  2. Judging by these rankings, Michael Thomas is going to be the most overhyped player in fantasy this offseason. If I owned him, I'd be looking to cash that chip in if this is how he's valued.
  3. I agree with this. I'd take lower than 2.01 actually because I just see too many red flags. I think there's a reasonable chance he's almost worthless after next season so I wouldn't fault anyone for cutting their losses early. I know most people would say that's not how you do dynasty, but I only believe he's a fool's gold 'buy low' this offseason.
  4. Seems a bit pricey IMO. I'm not sure Allen is any better than Diggs so adding Coleman is a (great) bonus I think. I'd take the Diggs/Coleman side for sure.
  5. I listen to the following podcasts regularly: - Under the Helmet (probably the most consistently interesting/useful for dynasty players). - Dynasty Nerds (occasionally amusing due to rapport of the hosts, but not particularly great insight IMO - just two dudes talking fantasy, fairly superficial analysis/takes). - Dynasty Blueprint (Overally I'm pretty neutral on this one. They often have quality guests, which is a plus, but I'm not the biggest Williamson fan). - RotoUnderworld Fantasy Football (you need to be in the mood - the host (Matt Kelley?) is pretty damn annoying and loves the sound of his own voice and the pods are lengthy. But the content is less conventional and doesn't have the groupthink of some others if you're bored of the same tired takes from everywhere else). - Dynasty Tradecast (I like the vibe of this one and the discussions are interesting, though it's usually pretty short). I also love On the Couch, but it's become less useful/essential since I got more into dynasty, because it's very week specific. I might have to check out the Dynasty Trade Calculator Podcast one as well!
  6. So apparently Davis had some stats taken away today - a tackle and a sack it looks like. Turns my very close win into a loss. Anyone else affected by this?: Seems very late in the game for this to happen after playoff matchups were already set on MFL.
  7. I pretty much agree with this. Just be strict on yourself and let go the leagues that you feel less invested in (if you can differentiate). I don't think I've even been in more than 3 leagues in one time, but I agree with some of the other posters here - I just can't see the appeal in being in so many leagues. Quite apart from the time commitment, which is already significant if you really put effort into 1 or 2 leagues, where is the fun in the scenario above or in owning all kinds of different players generally? I always find it amusing to listen to dynasty pods where people say "I have a few shares of [insert player]" or whatever. It sounds like people are just building "investment portfolios" of players so they can look smart and spread their risk. It almost makes it less important that you even have strong opinions or convictions about players because you can own just about everyone relevant somewhere if you play in enough leagues. Being in so many leagues IMO also means that there is naturally less at stake and therefore it's all less enjoyable and meaningful. If you don't make the playoffs in a couple of leagues, it doesn't really matter because you might have 5 other leagues where you do so you get a few shots at a title. At the moment, I'm in one serious dynasty league and it's great because it feels more important. When you have a close win or get bounced from the playoffs, it means more, because you don't have a bunch of other leagues to fall back on.
  8. I don't have the stats on hand but I'm pretty sure Ramsey has been very stingy on #1 WRs this year. It's certainly something to think about with Diggs, but many (including me) won't have better options probably.
  9. I assume it would be to do with the presence of Jalen Ramsey.
  10. Clearly the injury is much more serious than it appeared, but there hasn't been any reporting on it as far as I can tell. If he didn't practice at all last week, he's probably unlikely to play this week too.
  11. As an aside, what happened to Elandon Roberts?! Dude has barely played since the Collins trade and I thought one of the reasons they were comfortable trading him was because Roberts had been impressive. Now he's seeing single figure snaps behind Van Noy and McClellin, with no apparent explanation. As an owner, makes me wonder about his dynasty prospects.
  12. I thought this was a very strange take by Norton. Just looking at the snap counts it seemed like James was an every down player because Riley didn't play. The week before that Riley played 49 snaps to Jame's 31. So even if you thought James had earned some sort of role back, you would have been cautious with Riley back that it wasn't going to be full-time and/or would be in Riley's favour. Norton didn't seem to realise that James had actually been benched earlier in the season, rather than injured (Jene did correct this on the podcast), and assumed he had just taken the job back.
  13. Completely agree with the IDP side of things, which has been noticeably lower in quality this year. I used to really look forward to Jene's "Reading the Defense" as it had some of the more sophisticated analysis around, but the last couple (if not few) have just been a list of "every week start", "match up dependant" etc players, along with an updated list of three down linebackers. I really don't know how this helps anybody. "Eyes of the Guru" has been a little better this year, but basically all of it is rehashed in the IDP Roundtable podcast (which is too late in the week to be useful - waivers have already passed) so there isn't actually any content that ends up being exclusive to subscribers. It's disappointing, but honestly there isn't much good IDP content out there full stop. It's not just FBG. I'll probably keep subscribing because it's not a lot of money and I do use some of the content, even if only occasionally (though I would say that I don't even look at 75-80% of the articles). I like some of Waldman's articles, the staff roundtables, and the waiver upgrades and game recaps still contain some useful material. I also use the snap count data extensively and like to see Bloom's tiers and rankings because at least he makes a clear effort to adjust his thinking week to week, based on matchups etc. But if you're playing in deeper dynasty leagues, a lot of the content is very week to week focused and more targeted to shallower redraft leagues so it's of limited use.
  14. Pretty crushing finish to the season. Started out 0-5, got back to 6-6, then lost this week in a fairly close matchup, needed Dez to score 20. Landry killed me, as did losing Eifert and starting Stafford over Tyrod. Was fourth highest scorer, just a frustrating season.
  15. Stuck to my guns and benched Dez, even though most analysts seemed to be saying it's more risky than usual but you have to start him. No you don't as it turns out. That decision made me feel smart. Also had Stafford in the early game so great day overall!
