  1. https://www.rtsports.com/fantasy-football-league/22441 you can check it out here. The teams available are Dirty Birds and Ghost Rider.
  2. One Bonus to each of these teams is that they each have an elite QB. There is an emphasis on QB Scoring (6 pts per TD). Snagging Aaron Rodgers or Russell Wilson could be a key to early success!

  3. Join now and hit the ground running! For Free Agency (upcoming soon) we reduce Rosters from 25 to 20, and rank players in several different categories. Each team may fully retain 5 Transition players (3 years or less in NFL), rand 5 Franchise Players (Ranked 1-5). Plus, each team Ranks an additional 5 Restricted Free Agents (Ranked 6-10) and 5 Unrestricted Free Agents (Unranked). We conduct two bid sessions. Teams may make blind bids for other teams' free agents. Each team may lose a maximum of 2 Restricted Free Agents to other teams' bids and an unlimited number of Unrestricted Free Agents. At first glance, the Free Agency Rules sound a little complicated, but it really is not so complicated once we get into it. Free Agency really allows team Owners to quickly mold a team to their own liking, and it helps to even the playing field. Additionally, it adds another element of strategy, both for those rebuilding and those trying to maintain a Dynasty.
  4. Ten-Team PPR league. Two Orphan Teams available. Dynasty League with Free Agency provisions. Rebuilds are quick (last season's Champion was a recent Orphan Team in far worse shape than either of these!) These two teams have some intriguing pieces in place, although they each need some work. The Gridiron Elite League is hosted on RTSports.com; Annual League Fees are $50 + 1/10 of the RTSports hosting fee. League Fees are maintained with Leaguesafe. Payout is 50% to League Champion and the remainder divided between the top 3 Total Points (25-15-10). Both teams have all of their Draft Picks. Rather than me getting into great detail regarding Free Agency in this Forum post, I will simply say it really evens the playing field, so getting in now ahead of Free Agency is vital to molding a team to your own preferences. Shoot me a Private Message here or e-mail me at r.stocktonlaw@yahoo.com for more information. The League has been in existence since 1990, so this will be Season #30! We start 1 QB, 2 RB, 2 WR, 1 TE, 1 PK, 1 Team Def/ST, 1 Flex (RB/WR/TE). The First Team: Russell Wilson Chris Carson Tevin Coleman James White Davante Adams Larry Fitzgerald Kyle Rudolph Justin Tucker Los Angeles Rams D/ST Eli Manning Tyrod Taylor D'Onta Foreman Devonta Freeman Kerryon Johnson Lamar Miller Adrian Peterson Bilal Powell T.J. Yeldon Martavis Bryant Pierre GarconW Chris Hogan Marvin Jones Emmanuel Sanders Mohamed Sanu Jack Doyle The team also has the #2 Pick in the Rookie Draft (#2 each Round) The Second Team: Aaron Rodgers Joe Flacco Lamar Jackson Case Keenum Dak Prescott James Conner Mike Davis LeGarrette Blount Ronald Jones II Jalen Richard DeAndre Hopkins Nelson Agholor Danny Amendola John Brown Quincy Enunwa Cooper Kupp Demaryius Thomas Christopher Herndon IV Jordan Reed Trey Burton Jake Butt Stephen Gostkowski Tennessee Titans D/STAlex Collins Kansas City Chiefs D/ST This team has the #3 Pick in the Rookie Draft (#3 pick in each Round) Each of these Teams was taken over last season, and the owners sadly bugged out early, so we are looking for folks who desire to stick around awhile (although there is no long-term commitment).
  5. Anderson's release from Carolina seemingly left the Panthers short behind McCaffrey, but they explained they were allowing a frustrated Anderson the opportunity to explore his options. That was a curious move, but I accepted their explanation. What is troubling to me, however, is how quickly Oakland pulled the plug. That leaves me wondering just how much Anderson has to offer. Am I reading too much into these moves?
  6. I have never cared for his brand of sportscasting. Who watches this stuff?
  7. What is the latest on Melvin Gordon? I understood he was a GTD, but I wonder if that is more of a ruse than anything. According to Ian Rapoport, LA is promoting RB Troymaine Pope from their practice squad. That seems to me to suggest Gordon is unlikely to play tonight.
  8. I absolutely agree with this. In fact, I would say Damien Williams is a bigger asset as an outlet receiver than he is as a runner. He has excellent hands, and in space against a LB, he can excel. His weakness has been his vision finding running lanes. I have been surprised at his burst over the past couple of games. He has shown better acceleration than Ware.
  9. I am on the Kansas side, and currently it is light jacket weather, overcast, but no rain. There is a chance of light rain this afternoon into evening. Winds are expected to be 10-15 mph. The temperature is unlikely to drop below freezing tonight, but I understand wind chills could be in the upper 20s. I really do not expect weather to play a significant role in this game, although I did read this report: https://www.kansascity.com/weather/article222988790.html Damien Williams has excellent hands, going back to his days at Oklahoma, so it would be no surprise to see him finish with 4-5 receptions.
  10. Damien Williams should get the lions' share of touches. Charcandrick West went from street free agent to backup only a couple weeks ago, and while he is familiar with the offense, I don't expect him to play a major role in this game. Darrel Williams has only a handful of touches on the season. There is always a chance that West or Darrel Williams impresses and earns a bigger role, but Andy Reid tends to stick with one featured back. My bigger concern is that the Chiefs just lean on the passing game even more if the running game struggles.
  11. I am not especially confident Williams will put up good numbers tonight. Although he could have 20+ touches and a couple TDs, it would be no major surprise if he puts up a stat line of 40-60 yards and 0 TDs. Depending on your opponent's other options, I might have let Williams slip through to him and force your opponent to make the difficult decision of whether to start Williams. I will be watching another Williams, Darrell Williams, with great dynasty interest tonight. He is a no-nonsense runner in the mold of Spencer Ware, with excellent hands and great ball security. I believe he has as good a chance as any of the currently-rostered Chiefs' backs to emerge as the lead back for the future. FYI: I live an hour from Arrowhead. The weather here is overcast, but no rain, and I have heard nothing about freezing rain tonight.
  12. My early 2019 RB (PPR) Rankings TIER ONE: Barkley, Gurley and Elliott, in any order. TIER TWO: CMC, Kamara, Mixon and Gordon are the next tier for me. I would put CMC at the top of this tier, more like Tier 1.5 for him. TIER THREE: Fournette, Cook, Chubb and Conner. Fournette's injury history concerns me. Conner faded late, but situation is key here. TIER FOUR: DJ, Freeman, Jones, Lindsay, Cohen. Perhaps I have dropped DJ too far. TIER FIVE: Guice, Kerryon, Henry, Drake Sony and Miller. A lot of question marks here. You could probably lump several more here. If Seattle's situation becomes more clear, or if Breida retains hold of the lead in SF, they move up, but until we have more clarity, it is difficult to rank those situations. The two most interesting situations I am watching this offseason (1) where does Bell land; and (2) who will be the primary ball carrier in KC. I have excluded Bell from my rankings pending him finding a home. Mark Ingram's situation will be another one to watch with interest this offseason. Also, what happens in Philly and Baltimore?
