  1. IMHO if its a QB its Bryce Petty Gurley RB is pretty much the last position I would expect them to draft in the 1st round.
  2. Wow that's unbelievable. I guess in Buffalo you have the anti-Chip thing going on. Invest everything you have in RB and WR, then worry about QB and O-line later.
  3. This is exactly where I'm at. IMO, Chip has proven that his offense works in the NFL and is not merely a "gimmick". Now he has full control, and he's obviously using it which is good. For better or worse, let's see what we have in Chip. It may work, it may not, but he should be given the chance to find out with the team he wants.
  4. No doubt we need a lot more help in the secondary, and I agree there's very little chance Suh lands in Philly. That said, the guy is a Top 5 defensive player in the league. Any team would be happy to have him (assuming they can make it work), regardless of who they already have on the d-line.
  5. Considering the defense is almost certainly more than a year away from making us a serious contender, I don't have a problem with starting Mariota week 1. I'm hoping the reports of him falling are true, and it's certainly not outside the realm of possibility. Read-option or running QBs are going out of style fast, and I imagine a lot of teams wouldn't see him as a good fit or as too big of a risk. I'll admit I was a Foles believer after 2013, but he didn't look good at all in 2014. Very skittish back there. I still think he can be a servicable NFL QB, but I don't know if he's the guy that gets you a ring.
  6. Yeah, why would we want anyone from the Super Bowl Champs who are about to play at home in the NFC Championship? I agree, that would be really stupid.
  7. I understand that Mariota is fun to think about and has the Oregon connection and all that, but let's face it: Even if the Eagles were somehow able to pull off the trade to get him, AND he turns out to be a great QB, they still have a horrible defense and fewer draft picks to improve it. I don't care how good our offense is, we're not competing with the top teams until we fix the defense.
  8. 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.
  9. Yep, I cut him last night as EVERY piece of news said he was most likely done for the year. Uggh.
  10. I like Kelce and all, but no need to get crazy. If anything, hope he has a great game and maybe you can deal him before your trade deadline. Trade deadline is tomorrow, bro. While there's only a couple VOLUME + TD elite TEs, there are plenty of VOLUME (Olsen, Black Unicorn) or TD (Julius, Gates, Allen) TEs. That's two-thirds of the league. What does Kelce offer that differentiates him from a FF perspective? He's low volume and has, what, 5 4 TDs? Nice but nothing to pay a premium to acquire. Tough finding a trade partner to move Travis. Dude is a great athlete and has tremendous upside. But this year he was late round flyer who turned into a low end TE1. What can you get for that? Somebody who will function as your RB/WR 4? I'd rather hold as my expensive insurance policy to JT. Depth doesn't win championships, but I've had a hard time moving Kelce despite sending out many offers. Was just a suggestion, as personally I wouldn't start anyone over Thomas not names Graham or Gronk. I have Kelce also in a league that I own Graham, so he is wasting away on my bench as well. I figure at the very least if he does blow up, I'm not gonna be playing against him come playoff time.

  12. I would be really surprised to find out Belicheck cares in the slightest about getting Gronk a TD instead of someone else or getting to 100 yards - I mean unless maybe he has him on his fantasy team. I think he just wants to win and doesn't care how it gets done, there's a reason the Pats are always at the top of the standings....
  13. This is my first year ever having Gronk, and man is it paying dividends. I play in a keeper league that keeps 2 Veterans and 1 Rookie each year. Came into the season with Brees, Graham, and Le'Veon. Drafted Gronk with my 1st pick, 9th out of 10. Gonna be some tough decisions to make come next August... I got my fiance to draft Gronk with the last pick in the 3rd in a 12-team PPR league. As she likes to say, GRONK EATS PEOPLE
  14. Funny, I happened to grab Big Ben last Sunday morning before his big game; I have Brady on the bye this week and loved Ben's matchup with the Jets. Now maybe I'll be able to get something for him in trade, though I have no clue how much people would be willing to give up after the last 2 weeks.
  15. I own Gordon and can't wait to start him week 12, but this is a stretch imo unless you're playing in a 2-QB or 16 team league.
  16. The door has been closed for Ball, he (Ball) would of gotten half the yards Hillman got today. The coaching staff is in love with the speed, and ability to play three downs by Hillman. Then why wasn't Hillman the lead back to start the season? Why did the staff go with Ball? What's changed about Hillman since the start of the season? The only difference is Ball isn't around. Sometimes coaching staff can be myopic and/or stubborn. Are you so sure that they won't go to Ball again to some extent? Blown pass protection is a MORTAL SIN when it comes to watching Peyton's back. What's changed? I don't know the stats, but I'd imagine Ronnie Hillman has been a Top 5 fantasy RB since he got the start. Of course the coaches don't think about fantasy, but they sure look at stats and Hillman is absolutely destroying Ball's output. RL coaches don't give a hoot about fantasy football. I didn't say Hillman just got himself benched. I am saying that the door might have cracked a bit more for the RB that opened the season as the starter to come back to some sort of role in the backfield. So do you normally just read the 1st sentences of people's posts?

I imagine Ball will have some kind of role but the coaches aren't stupid, they see what everyone else sees. Signed, Someone who thought Ball was worth a 1st round pick this year
  18. All I know is I am freaking THRILLED to have grabbed Hillman in both my big leagues. Waiver wire pickups like him don't come along often.
  19. Man, if Jimmy can just get back to full health my evil plan to dominate my league with Gronk and Graham on the same team might actually come to fruition. Played Jimmy last week as well as last night.
  20. Frustrating night. If he had gotten one of those short tds, all would have been forgotten. Frustrating, but you gotta be happy with how good he looks. Couldn't be happier to have gotten him in both my big leagues. That said, stupid Peyton still throwing the ball is keeping me from my 100 yard bonus...
  21. That's the way I look at it. I've had him for 4 season in a keeper league and last week was the first time he didn't produce anything when playing with an injury. I got crap on another forum for saying people should start him last week but as I told them, I'd do the same today if I had the same information I did on Sunday. In the process of making a trade to get Graham in my other league, most likely giving Vereen and Cameron for him. Buy low sell high and all that good stuff
  22. Hope Ronnie's grapes aren't too sour for ya. You guys are funny, All I stated was his game against NYJ was not as impressive as you guys were making it out to be - no matter how he played last night it doesn't change that his game against the Jets wasn't that great. And if you read enough sites, there was concern from others about that performance not being that great. And, Retukes, you still don't know anything about football.

We're all wrong sometimes. Might as well just admit your mistake and move on. Humility is a good quality in a person.
  23. So glad I grabbed Hillman in both my leagues! Sealed one victory for me tonight and gave me a chance to win tomorrow.
  24. Surprised as anyone that he may play this week. Glad it looks like he won't be out for a few more weeks, but I'm not thrilled they may rush him back. I'd rather they let him fully heal first. I feel like they rushed him last year with his foot thing and he ended up playing at far less than 100% for most of the season. That said, if Jimmy plays he's in my starting lineup. This is my 4th year of owning him and trust me, even in a limited capacity he's well-worth the start. Last year I remember his first week back from injury he only played on like 20 snaps or something when they were in the red zone. He had like 3 catches for 15 yards....and 2 TDs.
