  1. Gotta figure whatever happened at practice last week had him in the doghouse for last night's game.
  2. That thing with the chest-bumping a Seattle player definitely seems like a red flag. If you wanna catch up with your former teammates, talk to them after the game. We see that stuff all the time. But in the middle of a game? After YOU just screwed up?
  3. Gotta love that BOTH of the GOP front-runners have never held a political office in their life. Yeah, I know, people like the idea of an "outsider" who's not bought and sold like the other politicians. But the fact is, electing Carson or Trump would be the equivalent of an NFL team taking a player with the #1 overall pick who never played a down of football in high school or college. "Well no, we don't have any proof that he would be good at football. But we LOVE his attitude!" Luckily for all of us, we will never have to experience a Ben Carson or Donald Trump presidency.
  4. Picked him up after waivers ran yesterday in both my 10 and 12 teamers. As soon I took him in one league I got a text from another owner telling me it was a great pickup and he's so mad he didn't realize he was out there. This may be the case in more leagues than one would think... Been rolling with Dalton, but he plays at Denver week 16.
  5. Done. I'm benching him for Winston.Bad matchup for Indy on the road. TB will likely get slaughtered in Atl and I see some garbage points for Winston. That takes some serious b***s, good luck!
  6. He couldn't even get a shoutout in the Weekly Upgrades/Downgrades 100+ yards and 2 TDs just doesn't satisfy anyone when it's from a 135-pound "backup" RB.
  7. Haha I knew it was coming - from the Week 8 upgrades/downgrades RB Holding Steady - RB Christine Michael, DAL - Michael's opportunity came in the form of a Joseph Randle injury and Darren McFadden took it. The bye week hype amounted to nothing in Week 7. Michael is still more than capable and at least the Cowboys running game is on track, and with Joseph Randle missing time, Michael is a Darren McFadden injury away from being the #1 back. Meanwhile, Woodhead piles up over 100 yards and 2 TDs and doesn't even get a shout out.
  8. Yesterday around 7:00 I get a text from my fantasy nemesis: "Danny Woodhead over TJ Yeldon? Did you forget how to play fantasy football?" 30 seconds later... "You're a genius" A half hour later.... "And another TD. You're a guru."
  9. Bradford is the only first round bust at QB, that doesn't face any heat from his team's fan-base, in fact they have always and continue to make excuses for him. For a terrible QB (ETA: "terrible is probably too harsh, damn now I'm making excuses for him) he sure lives a charmed life from the viewpoint of not facing the ire of his teams' fans like all other bust QBs have. Ummmm...not facing the ire of his team's fans? How many decades has it been since you've spent time in the Philadelphia area?
  10. Yep this^^. I grabbed him off waivers for a $0 bid last week in a FF league filled with Vikings fans, and started him in place of John Brown his week. Dude I beat using Diggs is a huge Vikings fan. This forum rules. x3! This forum is great for finding out about guys a week before everyone else does. Was happily surprised I was able to snag him in both of the leagues I tried for him in. Didn't have high waiver priority in either. Was hurting for WRs in one PPR league where you start 3 WRs and a flex, had Beckham but then totally crapped the bed on Andre Johnson and Charles Johnson. Flipped Gates and Dion Lewis for JULIO last week, and added Diggs. Now have Julio, Beckham, and Diggs at WR with Gronk at TE
  11. This is genuinely my biggest concern about the state of this team right now. One of the reasons I was so high on the Kelly hiring was the offensive creativity he brought to the table. He reminded me of a mad scientist at Oregon - always tinkering, tweaking, trying something new - and you could see that same sort of attitude in the Eagles in year 1 of his tenure. That's completely gone now. I thought when he got the GM title and brought in his own guys it'd be back to Mad Scientist mode, but instead it's gone from the most creative offense in the NFL to its least creative. Either it's because NFL HCs and DCs have made adjustments and Chip hasn't figured out how to counter-adjust, or it's because his skill-position guys are so limited that Chip's been forced to dumb the playcalling down almost to high-school levels to get it to work at all. I'm not sure which explanation is more damning. Was kind of dissapointing to hear Chip talk on WIP this morning...."now that you're at the bye week, are you looking at shaking things up and making any big changes?" "No." He seems thoroughly convinced that the plan is perfect, it's just a matter of his WRs, O-line, or whoever not executing said perfect plan. I really wish they had drafted Allen Robinson over Matthews like I wanted. (PSU alum) Every week is another TD for ARob and a few more drops for Matthews.
  12. lol, give it a break Cons. The war is over. You lost. Time to move on.
  13. Grrrr.... Someone dropped Michael when waivers ran last Wednesday, I put in a claim for him. Turns out the Commish messed up the settings on CBS for the 2nd year in a row, and it won't you add anyone that's been dropped until the following week. I let the commish know and he thought he changed it Thursday, but it still didn't work. Of course the Commish and I have the 2 best teams and he knows I need a RB... something tells me I won't be lucky enough to get him when waivers run tomorrow night.
  14. From what I've seen he's getting a lot of targets, which is a positive. Brees and the passing game is starting to come around as well, so hopefully he starts producing more. Just traded Emmanuel Sanders today and Amari is on the bye, so I'm gonna have to hold my breath and start him tonight.
  15. Dropped Hillman for him in my keeper league that keeps 2 Vets and 1 Rookie each year. I figure the potential for next year alone probably makes him worthy of a roster spot in that league.
  16. How does the coaching staff not see what the rest of us see - that AA is a threat every time he touches the ball while Joique Bell runs into the line and falls down every time he touches the ball I understand I'm biased as an owner, but it could not be any clearer last night.
  17. Well, that's why Ertz has huge upside. IF he can get on the field more, he could be a monster. His receiving ability is not in question. It's just opportunity.This seems like the best backfield Chip has ever had and he'll finally be able to run as often as he's wanted. I think the opportunity for Ertz is actually less than last year. Well, the difference should be his improved blocking skills. I sure hope so, anyway.
  18. I understand the concerns with Bradford staying healthy - but as far as production goes, if he's on the field he'll be a weekly Top-8 QB. Since Chip has taken over, every starting QB has been a quality fantasy option, even the Sanchise. Love him as a #2 QB with huge upside this year.
  19. I must be missing something here...why would a coach have to be in great shape again?
  20. So funny how many people still think Chip is clueless...there were a lot of those when he left Oregon, too. Has he been perfect every step of the way? No. But he turned a 4-12 team into two 10-6 teams, while fielding the #2 offense in the NFL over the last 2 seasons behind only the Broncos. Trying to act like he is "clueless" is simply being ignorant of the facts. Despite all the shocking moves, I think we are looking at a better team than what we went into last season with. And hopefully some potential starters on D to come between tonight and tomorrow.
  21. Let's not forget - Gurley will have 6 games per year playing against the Arizona, Seattle, and San Fran run defenses.
  22. I generally try and stay away from WRs like Wallace, DJax, and VJax because of consistency. Yes, at the end of the year their stats will look good. But when you look at fantasy points on a game-by-game basis, it's something like 2, 22, 4, 16, 21, 3, 3 Too volatile for me as a high draft pick. Give me the consistent guy.
  23. Can you imagine if you worked in management for the Bills? Trading away 3 #1 Draft Picks to move up a few spots to grab Watkins, instead of having to settle for Mike Evans or god forbid, Odell Beckham.
