  • You doing the Camp thread this year? That's all ways a gem every year.

    lowman2,

    I want to kick i it off; however, my mom was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer two months ago, and I haven’t been as focused on fantasy football as much as I have been in prior years. 

    I’ve also had a FBG member describing my work here as spamming the boards and he’d rather see people posting opinions on players versus lots of links, so that was discouraging to say the least.

    I still might launch it this weekend but even if I don’t run it this year, I’ll still work to keep the player threads updated!

    All the best!

    Oh wow sorry to hear that, prayers for your mom bud. No matter what you do in life there will always be haters. Don't let them win your posts are golden. As much work as you do on it you should start you a patreon and charge couple a bucks for access during season

    Thanks for your thoughtful solution to my concerns Fuast, and please keep up the great work! Your presence on the board is much appreciated.

    Hey Faust - could you guys update the QBBC analysis/article that you do every year? I find that one super valuable. 

    Thanks!!

    Faust,

    Hey, always follow your offseason news and camp news threads.  It really is the way to stay out in front, appreciate all your aggregating!

    I wanted to ask about any "unwritten rules" for posting or what should be posted.  I'm not that up to speed on posting etiquette for "official" stories, but I take it you like to just post linked/published material right?  Makes sense.

    I'm just wondering if there is anything out there that is almost like an official "Twitter Observation Thread" that is not necessarily published/linked articles from a well respected source, paper, web site etc....but more tweets or first hand observations (good ones) from camp reporters, beat writers, casual fans observing or just a collection of tweets/info/stats popping up on players.  Like these that I've seen:

    Chicago Chronicle.@TheChiChronicle May 19
    Both @AdamHoge & @AdamJahns stated that if the #Bears were to cut RB Ka'Deem Carey that he would be scooped up off waivers immediately. #NFl

    NFL Draft Diamonds and 3 others follow



     Chicago Chronicle.@TheChiChronicle May 19
    The one tailback that #Bears RB Coach Stan Drayton is extremely high on? None other than Ka'Deem Carey. #NFL (Via @AdamJahns & @AdamHoge).



    DraftDayConsultants and 80 others follow



    Kevin Cole@Cole_Kev May 18
    Kevin Cole Retweeted Numbers Game Podcast

    .@ShaneTJensen reminds us that 2015 5th rounder MyCole Pruitt, MIN TE2, had better NFL projection than any 2016 TE

    (In this guy's study he projected Pruitt as #1 TE in 2015 class for NFL success....so it's pretty interesting with this year's crop of TEs I think)

    It would be great to do a similar type of consolidation threads, like the ones you tend to, but more informal twitter observations and tweets.  We all know to take a lot of these tweets with a grain of salt, considering who it is tweeting it sometimes, the time of year with camp hype/running against air, practicing in shorts etc....but sometimes this info is very valuable in FF/dynasty as those people are at least seeing it first hand or running some type of data on a player or position etc.  The first hand observations and opinions are huge I think.  Sometimes I trust these more than a published article from a mainstream writer.

    Is there anything out there like that which just aggregates tweets of observations/opinions?  Thanks!

    I have added Twitter observations to the training camp thread in the past and I am a huge fan of creating fewer threads as as best practice - so please feel free to post tweets into my camp thread as I will appreciate it!
