  1. Thanks, good to know.
  2. Absolutely pumped to be going for Thursday-Friday of opening of March Madness this year. Gonna get a poolside cabana Thursday and doing the all-you-can-eat/drink deal at Lagasse's on Friday. Anyone have a good "in" for MGM Grand shows? I'd like to go sweat my #### off dancin' it up to Tiesto on Thursday night while I'm there. Only $40 which is totally reasonable, but if someone had an in for the VIP package or a discounted ticket that would be rad. Just booked my very reasonable JetBlue flight (after planning on driving, but checked JB for the heck of it and found a great fare) and can't tell you how badly I need a few nights away with zero responsibilities. Gonna throw down some parlays, maybe do some low-limit poker and just relax. Seriously counting the days.

  4. I should have added the stipulation that my comment was based more in dynasty. Gosh, I think this is the first year in a long time I have no IDP redrafts.
  5. Really like Humber, even with the Jenkins signing. And yes Jayon Brown could be a real nice sleeper.
  6. Sorry wasn't clear. The two are mutually exclusive. You're right, Trevathan will still play a ton. Both will, really.
  7. Agreed. The Bears know what they have in Trevathan, who isn't exactly a model of health himself.... and with the team likely to really struggle this year, they will want to see what Kwiatkowski has. I won't call him the second coming of Brian Urlacher, but there are some mild similarities. Huge uptick in K's value and if Trevathan can stay healthy he'll put up numbers too.
  8. Great stuff. I've been a Byard fan since he was drafted. Definitely a big-time ballhawk with some upside to be a consistent tackler as well. Also love Brown. I think his size could be an issue but the team loves him and he may be one of those rare "smallish" LBs that produce regardless. I already had him on my list of guys to watch for Week 2, dependent on snap count and production in Week 1. We'll see if he makes the cut.
  9. I think it's just a mess altogether. Vigil definitely has some upside. I've just been on the Minter bandwagon since he was drafted and thought this would be his best opportunity.
  10. I'm doing the same in one league.
  11. 1. Tietgen. We'll get that fixed. Thanks for the heads-up. And appreciate the kind words, especially in my inaugural swing at this. I get a lot of my ideas by interacting with you fine folks on this board, so please keep up the great discourse. Having a knowledgeable base of forum regulars makes things super easy. 2. I think that's the beauty of having multiple angles/voices. If two or three "experts" agree on something, it's rare. And usually means it's one of those "no brainer" types of things. And what fun is that? So yes, this is a "clear as mud" type of thing. I've read Rey will get the start, as he's the veteran and has filled in (I guess somewhat admirably?) in the past. But I think Minter is just the better, younger, faster and more dynamic linebacker. I've also read that the team plans on using a committee approach. I think they know what they have in Rey and will likely give Minter a shot at earning more time.
  12. Ward will put up solid numbers but there will be games that Tandy produces as well. Not an every-week starter but rosterable in deeper formats as a bye week or injury fill-in.
  13. Yeah, eek. Bostic probably has the most upside since he won't come off the field unlike Morrison. I was a big Jackson fan last season, but looks like he won't figure into the mix at least for now. I have Morrison and Walker in a couple leagues and holding Jackson in another. We'll see what happens.... there are stats to be had here.
  14. My spidey senses were mildly tingling last night when I took Poz in a FBG staff mock last night as my 5th LB (start 2-3). Jack is a talent but needs additional seasoning. Poz may produce yet again if the switch is set... which it sounds like it's still kind of a work in progress.
