  1. I was offered cj for my 1.05 and 2.05 this year. Not sure if I'm doing it. Waiting to see who is available at the pick and then might do it. Would you rather have montee ball or cj?
  2. Can crosby ever stay healthy? Freak injury or not I'm having doubts.
  3. Hey Mike C.......sent you a PM about my $50 payment last year that you owe me. Sent you some League safe information showing they refunded you and that you never deposited my $50 into leaguesafe that I mailed you--------you cashed it though and I shared that date with you in the PM as well............Lets hook up so you can pay me back...the league had to adjust payments because you didnt pay me

  4. Not even sure I would give up a top five pick for vjax. If I was one piece away from a title then yes. Otherwise probably not.
  5. Glorydays, Check out the 2012 completed dynasty trades thread. There is usually deals that involved draft picks and discussion about the trades.
  6. Depends on the players I available. I traded 1.6 last year for a #1 this year and a #3 last year.Glad I did.I'm a dynasty newb, playing in my first league which is heading into year 3. I'm struggling to guage the value of first rounders. Like this year i see richardson, blackmon floyd luck rg3 as all pretty valuable, but what is the value of say, pick 1.3 or 1.4 or 1.5 (individually)? Are these picks as valuable as a current wr2/rb2?It depends on the status of your team. If you have a team that can contend for a title then players that can potentially put you over the top are worth those early picks. But if you have a team that is young and building then those picks are worth much more to you than to other teams. I would hold on to any top 10 rookie pick that could really help you build a strong team. In dynasty, young players with potential are worth much more than vets.
  7. Depends on the players I available. I traded 1.6 last year for a #1 this year and a #3 last year.Glad I did.Why would someone take a 6 last year for a 3 last year and a 1 the following year?
  8. What 11 rb's would you rather have over him? He's carried a large load but from the data Yudkin and others have found, it seems young guys who carry the ball a bunch are MORE likely to continue to carry the ball a bunch (though the data is limited).I think we're looking at 3 years minimum of high level fantasy production. Unless your argument is a guy is going to suddenly breakdown because he can't carry a large load except for the large load he's carried the past several years.It's not eleven running backs, it's his top 12 dynasty players. I'm not saying I wouldn't take MJD in the top 10 running backs but he has him in the top 12 of dynasty players regardless of position.
  9. When you don't clarify what you are referring to by quoting a previous post or citing the article in question, YES it is VERY hard to understand. Especially if all you are going to do is write a couple three word sentences about it. Unless you are willing to share some reasoning for your disagreement, then better not to post at all.Here allow me to demonstrate: I'm a huge fan of MJD, but if we are talking about a startup dynasty league, then #12 overall probably isn't where I would draft him personally... Don't get me wrong, I LOVE the talents of MR. Jones-Drew and believe if he were on a team where he wasn't the only real offensive threat he could be the #1 fantasy RB. He does everything and does it all amazingly well. Unfortunately Jax is one of the least talented offenses in the league, with no supporting cast to keep defenses from keying on MJD and holding down his production and scoring opportunities. The top 3-5 fantasy RB numbers he still manages to put up in such a horrible situation are a testament to just how freakishly talented this mighty mouse really is. However, my reasons for questioning F&L's ranking of MJD would start with what appears to be the beginning of chronic knee problems (when he drops off it will be sudden and it will be off a cliff rather than a gradual decline), and my lack of trust in Jax to put any complementary offensive pieces in place to maximize his talents. Beyond that, if I could, I would list RBs that I believe should be ranked ahead of MJD in the RB rankings (6th) and other positional players I would take ahead of him in the overall rankings (12th). All of that being said, I'm okay with MJD as the #6 RB and can't conceive of bumping him down more than a couple of spots (splitting hairs at that point). Though #12 overall in a startup dynasty is a bit high IMO. After the first five RBs are gone, there are at least a few more WRs that I would consider over MJD (i.e. A.J.Green, Mike Wallace, Dez Bryant, Greg Jennings, Etc.) and in a TE required league Graham might be worth a look as well. Also a couple of QBs (Brees, Brady, Stafford, Etc.) However, Chris' rankings aren't geared specifically towards startups. And therefore, I can understand why he might project and value 2-3 more seasons worth of MJD elite production as top 12 overall RIGHT NOW. Particularly when you consider how rare it is becoming to get consistent elite fantasy numbers out of the RB position, and which Chris addresses in his RB article that you should probably read as well... Sorry I don't have time during my work day to explain to you why I don't see MJD as a top 12 dynasty player. Throw out an opinion and everybody jumps on you. Sour grapes or what? There are a number of reasons I would take multiple players before MJD which include age, mileage, injury concerns, team around him, the way teams are trending with the 2 or 3 back system and the history of running backs. I would much rather have AJ Green, Hakeem Nicks, Mike Wallace, a few other receivers or about 5 other running backs before MJD. How much longer can MJD carry the load for the Jags in a 1 back system? We have all witnessed the downfall of backs once they fall off a click and that time is soon for MJD. Just look back over the history of the league and the career span of running backs. MJD is 27 in a couple weeks.

  11. Do YOU even know what you are posting about?IF you are talking about F&L's rankings, he has MJD at #6 and ADP at #7 in the dynasty RB rankings article referenced by thriftyrocker. IF you are referring to Chris' overall top 300, which still has MJD at #12 overall (and ADP at #1), then you are waaay behind the times as that list hasn't been updated in quite some time... Perhaps you should read the article, and then if you are capable of posting more than a pair of 3 word sentences, you could let us know exactly what your beef is with Chris' rankings... Dynasty Rankings: RB Yes I know what I'm posting about and I don't agree with MJD in the top 12 of dynasty rankings. Is that so hard to understand?
  12. Wasn't the sweep of the Padres in August last year? There was still a whole month of the season left after that so blame the Padres for that one.
