  1. I was skeptical but figured I've got nothing to lose so I tried this too - and got exactly the same deal
  2. Thanks for the input all. I ended up countering and made the following trade. I gave up Zeke He gave up three 2017 1sts and Dion Lewis This leaves me with: Bortles & Carr Lacy, Yeldon, Lewis, Paul Perkins, DeAndre Washington, Wendell Smallwood Kelvin Benjamin, DeVante Parker, A-Rob, DGB, Dorsett, Michael Thomas (NO), and some scrubs... Ebron, Barnidge, Jared Cook, Tyler Higbee Five 2017 1sts with at least 4 of them having the possibility of being Top 3 picks
  3. PPR Dynasty. Qb/RB/RB/WR/WR/WR/TE/Flex I'm a middle of the road team likely to make the playoffs in the bottom 2 seeds. Been offered by the guy I'd call the pre-season favorite the following 2 trade offers 1) I give Ezekiel Elliott. I get three 2017 1sts (all likely to be in the top half to top third of the round). Leaves me with Eddie Lacy, TJ Yeldon, Paul Perkins, DeAndre Washington, Wendell Smallwood OR 2) I give Ezekiel Elliott. I get two 2017 1sts AND Dion Lewis Thoughts?
  4. Agreed. I think he has legitimate Top 5 potential - lots of weapons in the pass game, highly suspect run game, less than stellar defense. In my eyes he is this year's Bortles. I'll be targeting him heavily this year in the same way Eminence is.
  5. Not to mention my super sneaky tactic of totally forgetting to draft a defense until there were none left. And by sneaky I mean, oops. And by oops I mean, what a moron I am. This was quite the different experience for me. Thanks for including me this year! Looking forward to being one of the first teams knocked out but definitely learned a lot.

  7. http://espn.go.com/blog/washington-redskins/post/_/id/25045/wr-josh-doctson-impresses-jay-gruden-in-everything-during-minicamp A bit of a fluff piece, to be fair, but a couple interesting tidbits stood out to me: " Also, in college, he rarely faced press-man coverage or was jammed. He'll have to learn how to deal with that in the NFL. The routes, too, are different. " Given his frame I wonder how this will go for him. Could they use him from the slot more to help alleviate the concern? But this next one stood out to me even more. " “A lot of the routes are deeper,” he said. “A lot of deep in-breaking routes. I probably didn't run one double move in college and we have a whole arsenal of double moves here. It's a little different in and out of breaks, getting your hips around. Things like that.” The bold is mine. This concerns me. Not that he isn't athletic enough to develop the double-move as a tool in his belt but how long will it take for it to become second nature? Seems to me he is admitting to a fairly big hole in his game, a skill that has become a staple of the pro game. Am I blowing this out of proportion?

  9. A variety of trades I have on the table would net this result. I won't tell you which team I am. Which team would you rather be? This is a PPR league, start Q/R/R/W/W/TE/Flex/Flex, 1 pt PPR for everyone TEAM A gets: 1.02 1.04 1.05 ---- TEAM B gets Eifert John Brown Doug Martin 1.08 1.11 1.12
  10. I would have no problem with the Pack grabbing another D-lineman in round 2 if someone of value falls to them. And if Jaylon Smith is there in round 3 I'd love to see them grab him. If there is any chance that kid comes back near 100% in 2017 I'd be totally fine letting Ryan and Barrington keep the ILB positions warm for him through 2016....especially with an improved d-line.
  11. I feel like this every year - but this year in particular I really hope he can pull it off. Given the overall depth at LB and DT in this year's class I'd love to see the Packers accumulate additional picks in the 2nd and/or 3rd round
  12. It's a neurological disorder in which the patient is unable to lift the front part of the foot up - like lifting your foot up to point toward your knee/shin. With the kind of injury Smith had it is likely nerve damage caused the condition and it is unknown when or even if it will go back to normal. http://www.mayoclinic.org/diseases-conditions/foot-drop/basics/definition/con-20032918
  13. If you start a 4th league I'm in
  14. IF Brian Quick is recovered they might not be that bad....but, in my opinion, this is not a receiving corps that scares defensive coordinators. On the other hand, Gurley is precisely the kind of safety cushion a rookie QB could benefit from. The big thing about this trade, for me, is that I don't see Goff/Wentz or Keenum leading the Rams to a large number of victories this year so not only did the Titans make off with a haul in this year's draft, the 1st they got off the Rams next year will likely be in the top half of the round
  15. The QB the Rams draft will feel like it is when he get to camp and see all the "pass catchers" he has to toss the rock to
