  1. Not sure I agree with the underlined (though I do agree with the illegal opioids part to an extent, though still about 40% of opioid related deaths are from Rx opioids, not illegal opioids). A few facts to consider (from the National Institute on Drug Abuse - and other places)- The US makes up 5% of the worlds population, but consumes 80% of the worlds Rx opioids (read that again - then tell me the crisis isn't because we over-prescribe it here). Roughly 21 to 29 percent of patients prescribed opioids for chronic pain misuse them. Between 8 and 12 percent develop an opioid use disorder. More than half (53 percent) of prescription opioid users got their last painkillers from a friend or relative, with 40.4 percent paying nothing for the pills. An estimated 4 to 6 percent who misuse prescription opioids transition to heroin. About 80 percent of people who use heroin first misused prescription opioids. Putting all those facts together, Americans are over-prescribed these kinds of drugs, with some percentage of them misusing them and some percentage developing a disorder from it. Of those who misuse them, roughly 5% transition to heroin. One source I saw said that roughly 1 in 5 Americans is given a Rx for a pain killer annually. That's 65m Americans (which sounds crazy high). If ~25% misuse them, that's over 16M, and if ~5% of them transition to heroine - that's about 800k people a year. Personally, I think the underlined is the biggest thing here. That's pretty definitive evidence in my mind that Rx opioids are in fact a "gateway drug" for heroine.

    When will then be now?
  3. Ser Arthur Dayne or Selmy, if able to pick a character in their prime.
  4. While possilby true, those two (and everyone else on that list) have one clear advantage - an extra half a season right now. A bird in the hand and all that. The 2019 Guice could be like the 2018 Dalvin Cook, too.
  5. 10 team non ppr. ingram traded for McKinnon, a 2019 2nd round pick and a 2020 2nd round pick (both from “average” teams).
  6. back to back bye weeks. That's got to be a first.

    Mmmmm, this crow tastes delicious.

    Thought landing David Johnson and then Fournette in the 1st and 2nd was going to lead me to a title. Whoops.

    The Keenan Allen Hype Train

    Going into week 11 last year he had only 1 TD. His second half last year was amazing, by far the top WR in the game the second half of last year (62 for 845 and 5 in 8 games).
  10. out of nowhere a few huge trades in my 10 team, non PPR - QRWWFFT, IDP league Allen Robinson for Corey Davis and Adrian Peterson D Adams, DeSean Jackson and Ebron for D Freeman (before recent news), T Coleman, A Peterson, Robby Anderson and Travis Kelce James Conner, N Hines and Sammy Watkins for J Rosen, Joe Mixon and Gallup Mixon then spun off for McCoy, 2019 1st (good team), and 2019 2nd (slightly below average team)
  11. Given these two run away teams, and given that there will be two big WR rookies coming out for this draft, safe to at this point pencil them into these two teams for next year? If yes, I wouldn't be too excited about either.

    Especially when combined with Melvin Ingram's 1 assist and D Lawrence's 1 assist. Darn near the same case with C Kirksey till the very end of that game, too.
  13. OBJ, by a bit here. You're rebuilding buy give up your likely best player for a pick two years away?
