  1. hall is definitely an NFL player. was really fun two years ago with Bortles.
  2. There are 3-4 1st round wr this year. Watkins- top ten pick Evans- top 15 pick Lee- top 15 pick Matthews- top 30 pick Pretty decent. I also like Beckham Jr, Cooks,Robinson, Landry, Moncrief. I'm sure I'm missing some other WRs and havent even named the QBs/RBs/TEs Some of those guys will be 2nd round picks in rookie fantasy drafts, but I would be happy with some of those guys as well. I think there will be some good value in the 2nd round. But no WRs coming out with the Julio Jones or AJ Green type of hype? So this class will be a lot like last year's with some good value at the top, but not a lot of true studs? much better than last years
  3. Do you really think anybody here thinks that their "anecdotal lack of interest matters in the slightest"? (Not that I even recall very many saying they "lack interest") Ok. What's the point? it just comes off as whining. Is there some productive aspect I don't understand? Is this some form of emotional release that the rest of the board is going to benefit from? to me, I think it's blatantly obvious the product is terrible ... it's just masked by fantasy football and the amazing athleticism of the players.. the actual game itself sucks at this point
  4. If you touch Drew Brees, except in the designated area, its roughing the passer. For Drew Brees, the designated area apparently is the size of a dime right in the middle of his chest. hah! no joke, the Drew Brees roughing the passer call was what made me come post this... the guy did absolutely nothing wrong
  5. How is that any different than soccer, basketball, or whatever sport you would watch instead of football? I guess it's not really... basketball has gone down this road as well... my two favorite sports are both borderline unbearable to watch now
  6. what is a catch? / what is pass interference? / what is roughing the passer? are these games even fun to watch anymore? I find myself getting upset and frustrated with all the calls and ultimately choppy flow of the game. if you weren't involved with fantasy/had a team to root for, would this be a good product to watch? I say no
  7. too funny, he nails it every season lol
  8. I know you guys don't like Spam, so no link included... had been building this list over the first few weeks of the season, here's my first set of ranked devy rankings... obviously there's some guys who are going pro this season, but figured I'd include them anyway shout out to twitter, which without the constant streamline of info, I wouldn't know who half these players were... if you're not on yet... you crazy foos QBs 1.

  9. I sort agree with you about 'bad football players' -- that's what the 'poor rushing or receiving scores' indicate. The argument is that tall RBs with the same poorish level of skill get hurt more than the short ones. But you're also right that I didn't post anything very rigorous and no one should take my word for it. So I'll try to take some time and put something quantitative together. Or at the very least make sure I indicate which players fall into this category going forward (L Bell this year, for example) so we can compare going forward.But in the meantime I'm sticking stick to my guns here: poor vision and an inability to make yourself small is a fatal flaw in a RB and those players get hurt more often than similar players who are short.Wouldn't Adrian Peterson , Arian Foster and Steven Jackson fit the basic criteria also?
  10. I like the confidence, I'm trying to get him at a reasonable price in all my leagues... we will see... I do know one thing... it can't end up than Robert Meachem in San Diego LOL
  11. True, but he was also hurt by the fact that he played on one of the worst passing teams in the country. Almost everyone MSU played sold out to stop the run.he sucks- A biased wisconsin fan LOL(perhaps I'm just bitter over the heartbreaking losses the past few years)
  12. I understand what most of you are saying, but I don't think having one set of rankings is an issue, especially if you throw out the ' I gotta get these right for every team' idea. I believe there is a definite 'self conscience' value to each player at a certain time. certainly your personal value shifts if your in 'win now' or 'rebuild' mode, but that is you changing, not what the actual situation is . Just because I'm trying to win this year doesn't make me think Tom Brady is worth more than Andrew Luck, but I may make a lopsided trade with Brady and Luck involved because I've shifted the goal to more of a redraft ideal. I know most are in the opinion of ranking's not representing trade value, and to some extent I agree. It shouldn't be representing the latest ADP, but it should be representing your fantasy football 'self conscience', or at least that's how I think about it. I would never rank a player above another that I wouldn't trade for straight up. I know that has brought up a lot of debate lately and while I highly respect the opinions bringing this topic up, I don't understand it. If I really, really like a player... what is holding me back from trading the house for him? It's the main reason why I started that buy low thread. I was fighting myself to make trades for guys that I wanted because I didn't think I was getting proper 'value' from ADPs and other's rankings... but in my personal ranking, the trades were even, if I had just followed my personal list I would be farther ahead of the game. From day 1 I have based my rankings off of what I truly think about the player and I rank them accordingly. While sometimes it may make you look crazy compared to the common ranking, being ahead of the game AND ACTING ON IT is what sets you apart in the long run. I don't really have a guy I'm going out on a crazy limb for now, but putting CJ Spiller in the top 10 a few years ago is a prime example... If I have him at #10 and most have him in the 30s ... great news, but if I have him at #10 that means I should be willing to trade players 30-11 to get him , even if the market tells me I'm getting hosed. Most likely I wouldn't have to, but the point is, my fantasy conscience would lead me to believe I was lying about that ranking if I would reject any of those situations. Obviously I'm not taking the team bias concept into account for that example, but the point of having rankings is to reflect what your broad scope of the fantasy landscape is, right? I actually tested this out... I was pimping Darren McFadden really hard the past few years and had him as a top 5 back... well, I made trades and before I accepted I said to myself "if you really believe in your own hype machine and think hes that great of a back, you do this trade" so I did in multiple leagues... I also did this with Jermichael Finley... LOL as you can see, my hype machine was off big time... but I went with what I believed at the time and it taught me a lot and shifted my ideas on future players. (like to never trust injury prone RBs named Darren McFadden who play for the Raiders)If I have guys ranked highly but I'm not willing to trade that much to get them, do I really believe my own stuff? What validity do I have if I don't believe my own beliefs?!?!? ahhhhhh lolmoral of the story........I suppose you could break it down into separate 'win now' and 'rebuild' sections, but I feel there is a 'self conscience' bell in your brain that rings off every time you send and receive a trade offer.
  13. Sounds like you're describing Eddie Lacy. Except he's 5 foot 11, 231. And faster. Bell seems sluggish to me. It's entirely possible you also have Lacy ranked over Bell, I'm just comparing them. yea, Lacey seems like a rich mans version of Bell, who actually has the potential to be a feature back
  14. Doesn't look like anything special to me. powerful, but honestly, hes just slow... and struggled against all good comp. his stats were inflated by the amount of carries he had and good games against teams like indianaThink so? I think he could be an effective hammer on a team like Tennessee. Short-term burst is something that can be improved upon with lower-body workouts, no? Any way he runs under a 4.5 forty?I think a niche like goaline/power back for a team like Tenn would probably be a good idea. dude can def move the pile, just not sure he can be anything more than that
