    2017 Survivor Thread

    This is the wrong way of approaching Survivor Pools. You are not trying to get to Week 2 by picking the biggest spread favorite. You are trying to strategically pick teams who hold the least amount of future value. Whether you get knocked out Week 2 or Week 10, it doesn't matter. You are trying to last to the end with the best teams to pick from towards the end of the season. You don't want to get all the way to Week 17 and have to be picking the 17th-32nd ranked team to win. I'm going with the Bills this week, they hold NO future value! Jets are a dumpster fire.

    Fanduel Week 1

    Check out DFS Gold. I don't think you can see them all in one page, but you can see each weeks winning lineups for all FanDuel and DK tournaments, just scroll down and click on the Score number to see the lineup. Pretty cool site.

    zeke squad

    Team looks decent, not the biggest fan of those WRs, but you're looking pretty good at RB. I might have went WR round 3, instead of taking Gurley. And Carr will do just fine for you.

    Kelvin Benjamin v Michael Crabtree

    I don't think KB's ceiling is that much higher then Crabtree's, but I might give KB the edge because he is considered his teams #1WR, where as Crabtree is more 1B for his team. I personally don't want either guy on my team, both will probably give you 75-85 catches, 1,000 yards, 6-10 TDs. But if I had to pick one I'd lean towards KB.

    Tyreek Hill

    I never heard of the guy, but watched a few videos of his, I thought they were well put together and the videos had some good tidbits of information. I'm not sure what kind of "insider information" or differentiating points you are looking for, to help you determine if a player is over hyped or a value play.

    How do you rank the late-round QBs?

    If you are waiting on QB, 8th-10th round seems to be the sweet spot. You can get somewhere in the 5th-12th ranked QB in those rounds. Or just hold off and be the last to pick your starter, and you probably won't be that far behind the 8th-10th round QBs. If you take away the top 5 QBs from last year's QB scoring, the difference between the 6th scoring QB and the 12th was 26 points. Those 5-12th ranked QBs are really all the same.

    Official Christian McCaffrey Thread

    He's the 12th RB off the board in PPR leagues, I feel like he's already being drafted at his ceiling, with not much room for upside. How much higher then RB12 could he possibly finish the season as? I don't see him cracking the top 8 at the RB position. Over hyped at his ADP now, I'll pass. I'd rather have Kareem Hunt around the same ADP. Andy Reid has had a top 10 PPR back in like 9 of his 13 seasons as head coach.

    Where to draft GRONK??

    This right here is a big reason to take a risk on Gronk this season. He literally can get a $5 million dollar incentive bonus, on top of his $5 million base contract. How much more motivation does he need with this type of incentives? They just lost Edelman, Tom Brady's security blanket over the middle. Those targets are now up for grabs for everyone else. They brought in Cooks to get a deep threat to stretch the field, that's more room for Gronk to work the middle/underneath of the defense. He is eating Avacado smoothies, Kale chips, and other crap Tom Brady eats. He said he's given up the alcohol this year. Those party years might be behind him now, he realizes he only has a few years left at his age and injury history. Why would he agree to eat hamster and rabbit food crap like Brady, if he wasn't zoned in this year? He used to think practice and preseason was a joke, now he's saying his preseason reps were important, even after he didn't make a catch in a preseason game, he just got to run his routes at game speed. Dude is focused this year, he's a changed man it looks like to me. Writing is on the wall, if he can stay healthy, he might just be the highest Non QB scorer in PPR leagues this season, and maybe even in standard leagues too. I play fantasy football to win the championship, not to be middle of the league and barely limp into the playoffs. It's all or nothing, go for broke, and hope Gronk can smash this year. I also have a feeling New England wants an undefeated season including the super bowl, this might be there best team yet under Brady/Belicheat. Edited to add this: If Bell or David Johnson both hit their ceilings this season, Gronk might be one of the only players who might be able to match or get close to the ceilings of Bell/Johnson. And you better hope the person picking 1st or 2nd doesn't get a chance to follow up their picks with a Gronk/next best WR on the 2/3 turn. Good luck trying to catch a Bell/Johnson, Gronk, and a top 12 WR start.

    Directv NFL Ticket....

    Do I need a DirecTV subscription to access NFL Sunday Ticket? No, it's not necessary to have a DirecTV subscription. Each Anniversary Edition includes a code that can be redeemed to access the full 2013 regular season (17 weeks) of NFL Sunday Ticket on computer, tablet, and mobile devices. My understanding is a unique code comes in the Madden 25 game box, and that code can be redeemed to access NFL Sunday Ticket on PC. I don't think you need to tell Direct TV anything. Should just be able to enter your code online and get access to NFL Sunday Ticket that easily.

    Directv NFL Ticket....

    From the Amazon page, For fans who are already DirecTV and NFL Sunday Ticket Max subscribers, you can access NFL Sunday Ticket on your computer, tablet, and mobile devices using your current DirecTV username and password. My take, if you have DirecTV, but don't have Sunday Ticket, you'd still only get the NFL Sunday Ticket on your computer, tablet, and mobile devices. The deal doesn't seem to be that good for current DirecTV subscribers, vs. trying to call and push your luck with the retention department. The Madden deal only really seems good for people who can't get or don't want DirecTV service. Because even if you are a new DirecTV customer, they throw in NFL Sunday Ticket for free anyways.

    Perfect QBBC

    I agree with this and what butcher boy are saying. I don't think this is the year to try and play QBBC, with how deep the QB position is. QBBC sounds like a solid theory, until you have to decide every week who you are going to start. And to try and judge from last years SOS is like a crap shoot. With team defensive rankings changing so drastically from year to year, you may think one of your QBBC has an easy match up, to find out that team he's playing is now a top 10 defense against the pass this year. You can grab a nice QB1 in the middle rounds, between rounds 6-10, depending on how far some of them drop this year. And do you really want to have another decision on who to start at QB every week. Get your solid QB1 in the middle rounds and be done with it.

    Directv NFL Ticket....

    Sounds like you quoted my thread post from the AVS forum, this is all true based on my experience from last year. Anyone want more detailed info feel free to PM me. Yeah, I found your post when I was googling reviews of the streaming quality. I hope we can watch on the PS3 this year too. On the Amazon page, one of the FAQ questions says this: Can I watch NFL Sunday Ticket on my PS3 by purchasing the Anniversary Edition? No, this only provides access to NFL Sunday Ticket on computer, tablet, and mobile devices. But I'm hopeful we still might be able to view it on the PS3 too. If not, not a big deal, still want to watch Sunday Ticket regardless.

    Directv NFL Ticket....

    If you sell the game you definitely should get $60 back for it, considering it's the $100 anniversary edition. I'd ask $80 and go as low as $60. For $40 it's hard to beat this deal, assuming you don't have or want Direct TV. I remember last year they had NFL Sunday Ticket streaming on the PS3, but it cost $300 I believe. That was too much for me to pay for just NFL Sunday Ticket. I would have probably signed up for the PS3 streaming if it were $100-$150 range, but not $300.

    Directv NFL Ticket....

    Here is the link to Madden 25 Anniversary edition on Amazon. http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00CF7KVMI?pf_rd_p=1565168702&pf_rd_s=center-1&pf_rd_t=1401&pf_rd_i=1001215841&pf_rd_m=ATVPDKIKX0DER&pf_rd_r=15PFTWCGQNH0YC0YVG3B And from the product description: Exclusive Offers From DirecTV For fans who are not currently DirecTV subscribers but are able to receive DirecTV service, they will receive a promo code entitling them to $10 off per month for their first year of service and one year of NFL Sunday Ticket Max at no additional charge.For fans who are already DirecTV and NFL Sunday Ticket Max subscribers, you can access NFL Sunday Ticket on your computer, tablet, and mobile devices using your current DirecTV username and password.For fans unable to receive DirecTV service, each Madden NFL 25 Anniversary Edition will include a unique code to access the 2013 regular season (17 weeks) trial of NFL Sunday Ticket on computers, tablets, and mobile devices- including access to the award-winning Red Zone Channel.So with the description here, I don't see any reason why you wouldn't be able to stream the NFL Sunday ticket games live, from your PC hooked up to your TV. As long as you can stream them on your PC, which from the above it states you can, then hooking up your PC to the TV wouldn't affect anything, EDIT: If you aren't going to use the Madden game itself, just get the NFL Sunday Ticket code out of it, and then throw it up on Craigslist as soon as you can, I bet you could get $75 for it, being that it's the Anniversary edition going for $100. Someone might not care about the NFL Sunday Ticket code, but they want the anniversary edition for the other in-game benefits. EDIT #2: There is a limited amout of Anniversary edition copies, I believe 50,000 for each system. Also when I ordered my Amazon pre-order, they did not take any money out of my account. So I'd assume they don't bill you until the game ships to you in late August.

    Directv NFL Ticket....

    I did some digging to find out about the quality of streaming NFL Sunday Ticket. Below is a link to a review of all the streaming options for NFL Sunday Ticket, on the PS3, PC, and iPad. http://www.sportsgeekery.com/28860/review-nfl-sunday-ticket-on-ps3-ipad-and-online/ I also found something interesting in another forum thread. "The code from Madden grants a Direct TV account (established by registering a username and password at the DTV website) access to the tablet/computer version of the Sunday ticket, fortunately, that access also worked (and hopefully will work this year) on the PS3 app (the PS3 app would require you sign in using a DTV account)." Because from the above linked review, it seems like the streaming quality on a PS3 is better than streaming quality on your PC. And I have a PS3 to try this on. So hopefully the code works like last year, and I can access NFL Sunday Ticket on my PS3, if it is indeed better quality. Either way though, I can deal with average quality, as long as I can watch my Fantasy team players.
