  1. It isnt the perfect solution but once I heard about this I proposed (and it was accepted) that our lineups be due at each game time as opposed to 1PM Sunday. That allows people more flexibility in their lineups to offset some of the uncertainty.
  2. Liking the show except the overweight couple is a blatant rip off of Mike and Molly.
  3. Your'e giving Trump all the undecided votes... The true number was 62-27%
  4. She won 62% to 27% of the people who declared a winner.... so using that baseline Trump only got a 1% bump from that Independent vote and Clinton got a 21% bump....However you wanna look at it, even with the skewed participation, Trump got his sniffling ### kicked.
  5. But thats the point.... often times it ISN'T relevent information..... New post? sure.... but the recent posts could be about anything. It might be relevent but often times it isnt. With individual threads you at least have a thread title which gives you a more focused clue about what's inside... Some of these player threads, and especially TEAM threads have gotten so broad that the chances of finding useful information is pretty slim and can be frustrating. In the past the shark pool has been my go to place to look for relevant FF information. Sadly it is not any more....and part of that is due to the structure of the forums.. I liken it to looking for a needle in ahaystack....when youre not even sure there even is a needle.
  6. I too wish that there wasnt one big thread for each player/team going back to the beginning of time. Its not so much that I mind looking at the end of the thread for up to date relevant information, its that in alot of cases I dont even know that there IS relavent information that I might want to look at. To me the frustration of having to look at more than 1 page of the SP and having more than 1 post on a particular topic isnt nearly as big of a deal as some make it out to be. At least when I click on a current post Im assured of it being....current... Just my 2cents worth. I know we arent going back....but I wish we did.
  7. Its not best ball at all....not even almost..... you are locked into a starter..... if they both play your still locked into a starter.... if your starter DOESNT play the other guy is your starter...... Having said this I couldnt get my league to agree to this so we did the next best thing..... we went from lineups being due Sunday at 1pm to allowing lineups to be due game by game. Its not ideal but it does allow much more flexibility that imo is needed with the rule change.
  8. this is what we did when we had 11. Id go no divisions and one teama week plays vs the league average.
  9. Diggs should get a slight uptick over Hill, Mathews loses value, and I think Ertz stays the same (or even goes up a bit) since rookie QB's seem to rely on their TE's a bit more than WR's
  10. It depends........ It depends on how deep you normally draft. Do you draft a ton of flyers hoping one strikes gold or do you draft steady and take the best proven players you can find? If you are the former this strategy might not be for you....if the latter it can work. It depends... is your league full of sharks? a mixture? guppy central? The better your leaguemates are at this the less likely you are to be able to pull this off...... It depends..... how many teams make the playoffs? If only 4 teams make the playoffs its much harder than if 8 teams make the playoffs...... Put all together: I did this one year in a rather new league where 8 teams make the playoffs.....worked like a charm and I won the championship....... being the smart guy that I am I tried it again last year..... the league has gotten much MUCH harder over the years...... and I failed to make the playoffs. Its not about the individual players involved...its all about the league.
  11. Starting to remind me of Percy Harvin and all his headaches
  12. I am SERIOUSLY set to draft my first qb round 10 or later.... And here is the kicker....does it really matter all that much who it is? ...... Why do I say that: We all (everybody who is paying attention anyway) know that the QB position is even deeper than it has ever been. What does that mean? It means good (fantasy) quarterbacks are a dime a dozen. So are these dime a dozen QBs all the sudden going to have outstanding value once the year starts? I really dont see that happening supply and demand being what it is. Not unless there are injury issues of epic proportion. What I mean by does it really matter who it is is that given the current value of the QB pool is such that there will be so many great choices on the waiver wire weekly that you could easily do very very well just picking up QB's off the waiver wire each week and do very very well. Dont have the stomach for that? Fine...Supply and demand is STILL what it is....trade for one. Sure there will be people that try to hold you randsome but those people who overvalue what they THINK they have, will play hell moving them for anything like the value they think they have. I saw it starting a few years ago..... its gotten more and more obvious. Does it really matter what QB you draft? Not nearly as much in the past.
  13. Yeah the after game discussion is kind of disappointing to those of us who fought so hard for the draw.
  14. SHE SHOT HIS FACE OFF TO GET EVEN?
  15. I thought this was going to be about Ralph Nader running for president again. So disappointing....carry on.
