  1. Wow, just looked and the over/under for Browns win total is 4.5, and the under pays +105. I really wish I lived near a reputable place where I could wager significant money on the under
  2. True, but I can see some GMs hesitant to deal a 2017 pick and much more willing to deal a 2018 pick. Also, the more 2017 picks the better because they can generally be traded for better value in 2018. But as I said, better to get the 2018 pick rather than let a deal die. They also did it with other deals. Does someone have a rundown of all the trades we made starting with the Eagles trade? I think we got 2018 picks in a couple of them.
  3. Every day that goes by we get closer to 0-16 (which is fine by me actually)
  4. I love the trade.....................but it is such terrible logic to single out a player on a bad team and say "they went 3-13 with xxxxx player so how much do they really need them"? As for the people saying this sends a message, what exactly is that message? Is it that if you piss off the coach he can magically trade you for more than you are worth?
  5. I really love the forward thinking of getting picks 2 years down the road rather than letting a deal die. Absolutely love it.
  6. We traded our punter for a 4th? Lol hilarious
  7. Denver might literally not be able to afford him
  8. So the Cowboys really can't pony up a 4th for Mccown to try and save their season eh? Hell, let's ask for a 3rd in 2018
  9. We are so terrible. Rooting for 1-15 with some close games. A combination of realistic/optimistic.
  10. Well, if anyone still cares, I ended up making two trades to try to get the best of both worlds. I traded a 7th rounder for Moncrief. He was a waiver pickup last year, so he will only cost me a 12th rounder this year, a 10th next year, then 8th, 6th, and so on. So basically I get Moncreif and a 15th rounder this year for my 7th round pick and my 12th round pick, plus Moncreif represents nice keeper value next year if he does anything this year. The next trade, I traded an 8th rounders for Sammy Watkins and Kevin White. Sammy will cost me a 4th round pick this year. Kevin White will cost me an 11th round pick. Sammy is good value as a 4th round pick, especially since there are going to be a heck of a lot of top end guys who are not even in the draft cause they are keepers for other teams. White might be a really nice keeper if he puts together a decent year, and would only cost me a 9th next year. So I think I did ok considering I had jack squat for keepers, now I have Watkins, Moncreif, and Kevin White for what will cost me basically a 4th, 7th, and 8th round pick in a draft with about 25 players being kept that would have been picks in those top 8 rounds. Plus the added benefit of MOncreif and White potentially being really valuable keepers moving forward
  11. Talking with a much older coworker of mine last night. She tells me that her social security that she receives is decreased because she is working and making over a certain amount. Say it ain't so? That would be a new wrinkle to retirement I wasn't aware of.
  12. My biggest fear would have to be that I end up doing things right by contributing the max to my 403b and also a roth IRA, retire, and within a few years somehow end up in the same financial boat as people who never saved a dime.
  13. Might be a good strategy in a dynasty league.
  14. I am not sure you were aware of the level of genius this was when posting it. This is gold.
  15. The 2nd part of this is false IMO, and I have had quite a bit of success in dynasty leagues by throwing away one year when I know I can not compete in that year. By scrapping that one year on a couple different occasions I have won several titles in the years to follow in high stakes dynasty leagues. Since I have never done a keeper league like this, I was asking if anyone had any ideas on how to best go about playing for 2017. Yes, if I traded my top 4 picks for Johnson (something I would NEVER do, no way I would give that much) and he crapped the bed, then yeah, it wouldnt help me for 2017. It would be a risk obviously. Sure, ANYTHING can happen this year, but there are going to be about 30 really good players that are out of the draft pool. Many of which would be guys picked in the top 3 rounds, some even 1st round picks. I am at a huge disadvatage. However, I may have found one or two teams who have 5 or 6 quality keeper guys, and I might be able to work a deal for the guys they can not keep. That is a route I can go if I want to try and win this year. It is likely the route I decide to take will be based on the trade options with these guys in the league. If I can't get one or two of my late round keeper targets then I will look to make a deal or two with the teams who have quality keepers that they can't keep
