  2. In my 16 team league, Bell was traded for Chris Thompson and Corey Clement. The worst part is that the guy who traded Bell is the one who made the offer, not the other way around. I'm sure he could have done way better if he made it known to the whole league he was looking to move Bell.
  3. I know this is a longshot, but does anyone happen to have tickets for tomorrow night's practice that they are unable to use?
  4. 12 team PPR; QB/RB/RB/WR/WR/TE/Flex/QB Flex Gave: Jimmy Garoppolo, Jerick McKinnon, Corey Davis, 1.12 Received: Le'veon Bell, TJ Yeldon, 4.04 I'm sure this will be considered an overpay. However, I had depth at QB and WR to spare (McKinnon was the only guy I gave up that would have likely started consistently for me). I didn't really value the 1st round pick because my roster was maxed out on QBs and WRs before the trade, I have Gronk at TE, and all the good RBs would have been long gone by the 12th pick. I have Fournette, so Yeldon was a throw-in to give me his handcuff. Trade partner is taking over a team that was complete trash outside of Bell and is still likely a long way from competing, which makes the overpay easier to stomach.
  5. I lost 20 pounds in my first 2 weeks, then lost almost nothing the next 3 weeks or so, then started losing again. In total, I'm down just over 40 pounds since the start of the year. If your weight loss stagnates, stick with it and hopefully it'll start up again in a few weeks like it did for me.
  6. When I went to McDonalds last week, my order was taken by Shamiracle.
  7. I have an HDHP with HSA through my employer. It is one of two options offered to us, with the other being a PPO with FSA. The premiums are much lower with the HDHP and my company contributes $1,000 toward the $4,000 deductible. There is no contribution for the PPO plan, which has a $1,500 deductible. When I ran the numbers (factoring in the premiums plus the minimum I would need to contribute to the HSA/FSA to meet the respective deductibles), the HDHP was a no-brainer for us. I'm pretty sure the numbers still would have come out ahead for the HDHP even without the employer contribution. The downside of an HDHP is that you pay full price for doctor visits, prescriptions, etc. until the deductible is met. However, the upside is that once your deductible has been met, you don't pay for anything (not even co-pays). We met our deductible halfway through the year. My wife has since had gallbladder surgery and a broken wrist plus various prescriptions for her and our kids, and we haven't had to pay a dime for any of that. One of the main benefits of having an HSA is that there is no "use or lose" aspect like there is with an FSA. Also, if you are funding the account through payroll deductions, dollars going to your HSA aren't taxed and you're not locked into the amount you selected during open enrollment with an HSA like you are with an FSA. The words "high deductible" can seem kind of scary, but there are definitely benefits to going that route. The important thing is to run the numbers for your various insurance options and figure in your anticipated medical expenses and see if that clears things up. Of course, one emergency can throw a wrench into all that planning, but it's the best you can do.
  8. 12 Team PPR, start QB, 2 RB, 2 WR, TE, Flex, Superflex Team A (9th in total points scored but leading his division thanks to having nearly 200 less points against than the next closest team) gets: Melvin Gordon and Michael Crabtree Team B (rebuilding) gets: Ezekiel Elliott and Jordan Matthews Team A gets: Drew Brees Team C (rebuilding) gets: Julio Jones I totally understand the first trade for someone that wants to take advantage of their luck and try to win this year, even if it's a slight downgrade for the future. I couldn't believe the second trade when I saw it... his only QBs were Big Ben and Trubisky, but that still is a huge price to pay for a QB that's at the tail end of his career.
  9. Thanks, guys. That's the way I was leaning anyway but the consensus confirmed it.
  10. Yes, forgot to mention that. I'm 8-1 and should lock up a playoff spot with a win this week.
  11. I agree with Gally... start off by seeing if you can get McKinnon for a cheaper price first. If that doesn't work, then move on to the Hunt/Fournette discussion. Just be aware that if your trade partner is smart, he's going to make you pay a premium for taking on Hunt's bye week right after he survived 3 weeks without Fournette.

  12. Another vote for Tyrod/Engram. Please check out mine if you have a chance. https://forums.footballguys.com/forum/topic/762501-trade-zeke-for-chris-thompson-trade-deadline-tomorrow/
  13. 16 Team PPR; Start 1 QB, 2 RB, 2 WR, 1 TE, 1 Flex Current Roster: QB - Mariota, Brissett RB - Zeke, Howard, Burkhead, McFadden, Vereen, Gallman WR - Julio, Dez, Michael Thomas, Doctson TE - Kelce, Engram I have the opportunity to trade Zeke straight up for Chris Thompson. Our trade deadline is tomorrow, so I won't know whether Zeke's suspension is on before I have to make a decision. Complicating the decision are the keeper implications. In this league, we can keep one guy with round 1-7 value and one guy with round 8-16 value. Zeke is really the only guy I have worth keeping in the 1-7 range (he has 2nd round keeper value). Also, I'd be trading him within my division so that has potential to haunt me next year. Thompson has 8th round keeper value, but I also have Howard (9th) and Engram (14th) that I could keep. I'd be a lot more likely to pull the trigger if Thompson had 7th round value. With all that said, do I have enough to survive with what I have (or what I can get off the waiver wire) if Zeke's suspension goes into effect or should I just trade for Thompson despite the keeper issues that creates?
  14. 12 Team PPR Gave: Odell Beckham Got: Michael Thomas I needed help at WR now. My trade partner is consistently one of the worst teams in the league. I don't mind if this is considered an overpay because I doubt Beckham is going to change that for him and this gives me a better chance at winning the championship this year.
  15. In our 16-team league, the 10 non-playoff teams compete for the right to choose their draft position for the next season. The top 8 scorers in week 1 of the playoffs advance to week 2, then the scores reset and the top 4 scorers from week 2 advance to week 3. Week 3's top scorer then gets to choose their draft position in the next year's draft. This helps keep everyone active and engaged as everyone has something to play for, even the teams that are already out of playoff contention at this point of the season.
