  1. ahahaha... honest advice? Is that what you call that? You may not agree, but IMHO if you think there is someone that needs a passive aggressive insult in this situation then maybe you're a ########... seriously. Guys remember.. I did NOT take action, speak to the owners or share my concerns with ANYONE in the league, I came here to get perspective and discuss thoughts. I wanted to make the right / fair decision, even if that was NO decision / action. I remembered this community being very valuable for perspective, and why I posted to the tank. I really appreciate the feedback guys. Best Regards
  2. Again, thanks everyone! I appreciate you helping me put this/myself in perspective.
  3. Thank you for the thoughtful feedback, I appreciate it. I do disagree with the opinion on his post draft dumps though. He auto drafted and then dumped Carlos Hyde and Eddie Lacy a few minutes after the draft because he didnt like the teams they play for. Obviously the teams with 1 and 2 priority (I was one of them, BTW) were getting an unfair advantage based on the actions of a owner who's never played. I told him he could trade him for players he did like, or dump them later.
  4. Surprised to be accused of plotting, baiting or hovering and questioned on how I know the skill levels of people in a work league can put someone slightly off balance. I felt like the question was legit and came here seeking opinions from non bias, equally informed FF'ers. Dont get me wrong, I am listening to the non trolling opinions and appreciate them.
  5. ??? - PPR could effect value. TD heavy leagues, Gates may have a higher perceived value. Assume? I work with these people and talk to them daily - One is fanatical about FF, the other has never played and doesnt care. Plotting? Bait? I'm at a total loss?. I could care less about anything other than not allowing the competitive balance of the league to be effected . This is a cash league. By my perception Brady V. Rodgers is a wash... Gates for Olsen seems like an epic robbery. Given the picture I painted, asking for opinions seemed like the best course of action. I haven't been here for a couple years, This place has changed.
  6. Let me start by saying I'm a long time commish/player and I do NOT believe in a commish projecting their own value opinions into trades. A commish should only intervene in a trade where the situation is blatant, highly questionable, or collusion is suspected. Let me explain why I need some opinion of this... Im the commish, this is a work league. Many of the owners are new to fantasy football or just arent that informed. Standard PPR, 12 team. Owner 1 is informed, and has skills (3-2 record). Owner 2 is a nOOB, has no clue, and isn't engaged. 0-5, auto drafted team. This owner dropped two of his first 3 draft picks the day after the draft because he didn't like the teams they played for (I put them back on his roster) Owner one initiates a trade with owner 2. Owner 1 GIVES: Tom Brady / Antonio Gates Owner 2 GIVES: Aaron Rodgers / Greg Olsen I need some objective opinions here. What do you do
  7. while my personal rankings may not be exactly the same, it's very difficult to poke (meaningful) holes in any of your opinions. Your rankings are fundamentally solid as any i've seen. In my opinion, of course. If i liked hearing myself talk like some others people do, i could always nit pick them. but i'm fresh out of the energy to mentally *fap*. lol. well played, nice contribution
  8. Same reason Brees has been a bust in virtually every season since joining the Saints. Hes been surrounded with mostly suck weapons and injury risks. Should author a "Bust Alert - Drew Brees" thread too, then you can be the genius that called it first. /:sarcasm:
  9. Irrelevant. Sproles has never been a guy who get a ton of touches, and his style is not conducive to taking a lot of hits, so he doesn't have the wear and tear of a normal 30-year old RB. Plus, he has shown over the years that he is the king of doing more with less. He doesn't need a lot of touches to produce. Well said. Sproles easily has 3 years of solid/high end/peak production (ppr) left, perhaps more. Given the wear and tear and all the other circumstances with Stewy, does he have the same? He gonna produce into his year 30 season? Noooooooooo. That doesn't seem realistic.But it seems realistic that sproles who was hurt last year will be "solid high end" at 33 .... Lol seems reasonableThis is a PPR dyansty discussion I thought?, Not real life NFL. I said solid/high end/peak. Maybe I should have used comma's + the word "or" maybe you would have gotten what I meant. I did not say "elite" and I did not say "solid high end" and I defintely didnt specifically single out his age 33 season using those words... But if using your interpretion of what I said helps your snip at me sound more biting... suit yourself.But yes, I am clearly stating that In a PPR format, regardless of how and where (useless dump offs) the garbage fantasy stats come from I can absolutely see Darren Sproles being a "solid" (RB2/Flex) type option in his age 33 season. He's a unique "RB" (if you can even call him that.) His style, the system and his lack of milage make that an easy limb to go out on, for me it's a much easier limb than the Stewart at age 29-30 limb.This is my opinion. I don't require you to agree. But laughing at the validity of an opinion is uncalled for.What happened? This message board is so much different than I remember.

  11. All things considered he's buy high... your still buying potential and wIth every year that goes by, the potential diminishes. The pipe dream return on investment erodes further, it is what it is. He isn't getting more potential, he is getting exponentially less with every season and every new injury that goes by. Best case scenario is for him to have a big start or huge stretch of games and to flip/dump him when all the 'told ya so sheep' start screaming from the top of the mountains about how they always knew the messiah was coming, lol..... IMHO, He's become a short term, high risk investment property at this point, not a dynasty cornerstone.
  12. Yeah you guys go ahead and outsmart yourselves on a guy like Foster... sell. go ahead chase the next great back. Good luck with that. Short of getting clear, off the chart value for Foster there is no way in h3ll im shipping him off on the latest buzz about getting 10,000 carries or whatever. Yeah he's on pace to get 450 carries and yeah coach says THIS WEEK that will continue... Pfffft. He has couple seasons of wear on his tires and a light college odometer... SELL SELL!!! Chasing the latest, greatest and trying to be the smartest guy in the room by trading an uber stud in his prime is not a shark move, it's a monster ooopppps you could regret for years. IMHO.
  13. Cross your fingers, I think your on the bad end of the odds on this one. If it's PPR your in big trouble. Blount definetly looks like hes lost some weight and does seem focused but those hands are bricks. He has some unique skills but they are not in the passing game... with that defense the Bucs are playing from behind alot this year... ball control / pounding the rock is a great idea in concept but this defense will not support that kind of approach. I hear the bla,bla, bla.. about Sciano and run first approach too.. but when your down by 14 every game, its going to be impossible to support a 60/40 split and if they try they NEED the threat of play action and backfield dump offs (a Freeman specialty)... Blount will get sum carries not doubt but if your banking on 50+% of a heavy RB workload.. Your in a tough spot.Plus... I think we are looking at a 3 headed monster rather than just the 2. 50/30/20 split if I had to guess. With Blount holding aout 30%/
  14. i went to the night practice. Ive gone to training camp practices every year. This was a bit unusual, the vibe was most certainly different than anything I remember across the last several coaching staffs... Generally speaking, everytime I go to these practices someone opens my eye... someone will jump of the field as far as effort or talent levels... This one was a bit unusual, there was no single player that 'flashed'. There were several that had a few good plays, and I did walk away with a few opinions... 1. While VJax didnt have any highlight type catches, he seemed very business like and focused. While the sample size was small (1 practice, several hours) I would agree with the sentiment I have heard recently.. That he is a professional and is workman like in his approach. 2. Doug Martin is not 'small'. While he is short in stature, there is nothing small about the way he runs. Ive seen many RB's come through that are smaller framed guys... He is not one of them. The guy is put together and solid. Dudes calves are monsterous. In one of the drills he executed a spin move/juke that was unlike any RB ive seen here. The comparisons to Rice/MJD seem fair. Hands are very soft and sure. He's gonna be a great WR out of the backfield. 3. Carl Nicks is a beast. The entire offensive line should be ruthless. 4. Lavonte David has "it". He's small for a LB, but he finds the ball and wont hesitate to drop a hat on someone. 5. Wow Josh Freeman looks different. (physically) 6. Michael Smith is NOT just a camp body and given a chance he will turn heads. Hope he runs back kickoffs. Look terrific doing it. This is a guy I want to aquire in deep dynastys. 7. Our defense is going to get shelled barring a miracle. 8. Dallas Clark has great hands/focus and veteran savvy but.. that tank is almost dry. He will make a great stop gap until Stocker develops.
  15. How many times can you say ditching your best talent at a given position is an outstanding move?. This one is exactly that. Well played.
