  1. What is the reasoning on Chris Conley being so low? I can understand the 50s or 60s, but 84 seems particularly low given his upside.
  2. I don't care what the situation. Deangelo for Dez is a terrible offer. The exact kind that belongs in this thread. No way. Ever. Should you trade Dez for Deangelo.
  3. This reinforces my opinion that people should put more weight into when players are not activated for games. I thought it was a huge red flag when Michael was inactive for so many games, and others disregarded that fact, saying it was reflective of him not playing special teams. This can be seen in the lack of success of many highly touted players. The ones that immediately pop into my head are Justin Hunter and Robert Meachem. If a team thinks so little of you that they don't even bother activating you in case of injury that's a huge red flag, and it should not be shrugged off.
  4. This Roy Williams critique reeks of monday morning quarterbacking. Yes, in hindsight it is easy to say Williams wasn't a great talent, but when he came into the league he was considered a Top 5 rookie pick by virtually everybody.
  5. Last time I heard something like this Jerry Jones was proudly proclaiming the Cowboys' first round pick was Roy Williams.
  6. No and your last line is the real answer. Sherman was fired for incompetence so there's a new OC in town.The writing is on the wall for Moreno. They did not sign Moreno to a one year contract to make him the starter. He is Lamar Miller insurance. As it is for Miller. Team don't sign RB's for $3M as insurance. Disagree. Teams don't sign rbs for 5-8M as insurance. They pay 3M on a 1 year deal for insurance.Spin it however you want, the signing of Moreno was an ominous sign for Miller's future.
  7. You make a solid point about roster size. I am by no means saying Miller is unrosterable. He has done enough to warrant a roster spot in most dynasty leagues. If he were cut in my 19 player roster league, I would pick him up if even just to try to trade him. That said, I believe his perceived value is still higher than his actual value, given that you have a owner in your league that is still holding out hope based on his age and measurables. I doubt he will ever amount to anything, and would be looking to move him. That doesn't mean cut him, but I am definitely not buying him either.
  8. If I owned Miller I would be looking for an owner in my league like you who is still holding out hope, and use him to either move up in the draft or attain as high a draft pick as possible, which I would imagine is the 16th overall or later. He might serve as good trade bait or an add-on for the Moreno owner. If you "wait and see" I think you will be holding on to a guy that has zero value next year. The ideal time to trade was last year when his hype was through the roof.
  9. This. Like many, I thought Richardson was a can't miss prospect, but it is clear that he is now an example that there is no can't miss prospect, much along the lines of Charles Rogers, Ryan Leaf, and Curtis Enis.
  10. This thread should serve as a history lesson for future fantasy players. There were a ton of red flags for Miller yet some people get so blindly caught up in measurables, most notably speed, that they cannot help but buy in to the hype. Not to derail this thread, but Christine Michael strikes me as someone whom this lesson could be applied to.
  11. Not to mention Sproles' large role on Special Teams.
  12. Ok, but what about this? Any ideas? I didn't realize they could still save money by cutting him. His usage in Minnesota is now even more mind-boggling.
  13. Parsons usually has the most ridiculous rankings.
  14. You do realize he had 4 catches for 66 yards after the Colts had taken the lead right? Yeah, but the switch to Brown in the second half was all predicated on Richardson's ineffectiveness in the first half. The second half game plan to catch up carried over once Pep saw how it was working. Plus, it was a tight game until the end. They really didn't have the luxury to sit on the ball. The game plan doesn't just go back to run heavy once you catch your opponent. The second half adjustment of Brown in and TRich out, and Pep's playcalling did wonders to get Fleener in space. If they go back to Richardson for 2 yards and a cloud of dust to start the next game, Fleener will disappear again. Until they go back into catchup mode. You think with the state of the Colt's defense they are going to blowout a lot of teams? I don't. IMO most of their games will be close, or they will be trailing, like last night. I don't see them getting way ahead and running clock very often.

  16. I have been disappointed as a Fleener owner, but agree with the mindset above, which is that Fleener is only in his second year and still holds a lot of potential. What worries me most is that Luck hardly ever looks for him, at least during the games I have watched. I thought Fleener would be Luck's security blanket since they had been together for so long, but that doesn't seem like it's the case yet. It may never happen if Luck still doesn't trust him after all their background. I'm holding in a 12 Team, 19 player, PPR, No TE, Start 3WR Dynasty league, but have thought about cutting him.
  17. If someone offered you 3 million dollars, you would turn it down? Really? I am sure he didn't think he would suck. If I thought it put me in a better position to get a bigger, longer term contract? Yes. Why do you think sitting out a year would make teams want to give him more money than the Vikings did? Your logic is flawed. His best chance to get a big contract in the offseason was to sign with a team, like the Vikings, and perform well enough to justify a big contract. If he would have sat out this year, the following year he would have received a similar deal to what the Vikings gave him already. Plus, I highly doubt Josh Freeman is thinking, "i don't want to go to the Vikings,because if I go to a team that went to the playoffs last year and has the best RB ever to play the game, I am going to suck." I've got to think that no NFL player thinks they suck, or thinks they will suck, in any circumstance. I'm struggling to think of guys who have managed to do this successfully... I'm struggling to think of QBs that were cut by their team, sat out the year, and were rewaded with a big contract in the offseason.

  20. This idea seemed, and still seems, absurd to me. This is especially crazy when you realize Freeman was going to be a free agent at the end of the year. Even if he hated playing for the Bucs, he would want to play well this year to ensure a payday next year. The NFL is a performance based league, and sandbagging could lead to at best losing millions of dollars, and at worst the end of your NFL career.
  21. It seems as though everyone thinks his arm is average at best. I am going to throw the "laser arm" comments made earlier in this thread out the window.
  22. It might be a good thing in PPR for Foster and/or Tate, considering how younger QBs tend to like dump offs more. I don't think this hurts AJ or Hopkins, because it can't be worse than having Yates in. So, worst case is Keenum sucks, and they put Schaub back in, and no harm is done to AJ or Hopkins. Best case, Keenum is the next coming of Romo, and it provides a boost for those two.
  23. I know rotoworld is often full of bs, but they describe Keenum as having a "third stringers arm" and not having "NFL size or arm strength". I find it interesting to see such contradicting information here. I mean, some are saying he has a laser for an arm. I wouldn't be as surprised if people were saying he has a decent or even good arm, but to go from "3rd stringer arm" to laser arm seems like quite the disparity. Major, sell me on rotoworld being wrong, you're doing a pretty good job so far.
  24. How's Knowshon Moreno for a comparison to Trent, only as far as running ability, not factoring in pass blocking which Moreno's always been solid at? They both get what's given to them, but appear to be middling, easily replaceable talents.
