  1. Hahaha... I have a hard time leaving a league like this, but I understand. Good luck for the rest of your final season, then. That particular guy is just bizarre though... it's like he's addicted to trading and half of them make no sense. Lots of absurd overasks and then complete giveaways, too. I don't get it.
  2. Yeah, I was just making sure I'm not crazy. Here's another one from the same owner. I'm not involved, but the former Godwin owner also traded Mahomes to a different guy in this manner: Mahomes, 5th round pick for Daniel Jones, Frank Gore, Engram, 2nd ...I don't know what's going on with this guy.
  3. 12 team PPR Chris Godwin For Marlon Mack, Preston Williams, very late 2nd
  4. Debated benching him for Dede for a few seconds, but... nah, can't do that. If you had a top 20 option, sure, you can bench him. Otherwise, you should only be benching him if you would rather take a shot on a high floor guy who is likely to get you 9-11 points or whatever, because, based on your matchup and situation in the standings, you feel you cannot afford to take a 0-3 point performance. I think it's pretty unlikely he takes a 0, though, anyways. There's a strong chance the Patriots have a 3+ TD lead in the 4th quarter, which means there should be some garbage time upside her
  5. I've actually seen him dropped in a PPR dynasty league (wasn't me)... 👀
  6. I have seen an early to mid 1st rounder dangled for him in a PPR league. Not sure if that's an accurate gauge, but it's at least one data point...
  7. So, here's the real question: What percentage of Hunt's fantasy production will Ware be able to muster? 70%? 80%? 90%? I remember him being pretty solid before his injury, but he lost his job instantly to Hunt, so...
  8. I drafted him at 1.03. Barkley and Guice went 1/2. I considered Michel and Penny, but ultimately decided Chubb was the best from a talent perspective. And yes, I agree... It was garbage. It's not veiled at all; it's literally an attempt at getting a player he wants... at a ridiculously low price. Gotta agree with FF Ninja here. You're not just saying "I'd like to trade for this player," you're saying "I hope you're dumb enough to accept, and if not... well, I'd like this guy and my starting offer is miles from reasonable." If you can't start anywhere close to a fair price, you s
  9. Thanks, along with the others who responded. Like I said: Sanity check - just wanted to make sure I wasn't crazy. Every offer I get in that particular league is that bad or worse, and at some point I just stopped responding to them, but then some started whining about not responding to offers. Your reasoning is pretty much what I replied with... how can he be worth less than preseason? He was still an early 1st in most leagues and is only more valuable now. Why do people waste their time with offers like this?
  10. Sanity Check: Offered the following in a PPR Dynasty: Two 2nd round picks for Chubb and a 4th Offensively bad offer -OR- simply a low opening offer? In other words, what are people viewing Chubb's dynasty value at right now? Is anyone trading him anywhere recently? I can't imagine letting him go for anything less a king's ransom right now. He's a huge talent and the team just told the whole world they are hitching their trailer to him. It's the Browns, but they've been trending upward and have a potential legitimate franchise QB for a change. Hard not to view him as a top
  11. Winston is a backup in this 2 QB league, but the suspension, FitzMagic's explosion, and now word that the Bucs might hold out Winston longer makes this a tough call. Strange to get an offer like this so early in a 2QB league, so I'm not sure if I'm missing something here. Any chance Fitz keeps the job? Tannehill should be locked in as the starter all year barring a serious regression or injury, right? Regardless, I guess you can simplify this to who do you like ROY in a 2QB league league: Tannehill or Winston? WHIR
  12. I think Keith Marshall is actually the most gifted RB on the team, and I was planning on targeting him in several leagues heading into this season because Jones is not the answer. Marshall's got some injury issues of his own, though, and Gruden said that they were considering IR for him after his injury initially sounded minor. If Marshall is on IR, that is even better for Kelley's prospects. Regardless, I've seen enough of Jones to think that he's just not good and the Skins will be willing to give the next guy a real shot. Jones missing Week 1 would only speed up the process. Even if you
  13. http://www.nfl.com/videos/nfl-game-highlights/0ap3000000691305/Dorial-Green-Beckham-scores-4-yard-TD-in-debut-as-Eagle Nah, we don't need that guy. Trade him for OL depth.
  14. While nicknames are always fun, I thought Crow had a worse rep for this than West. He had one of the highest % of runs for no gain or less, presumably because he danced and stretched plays when there was no need too. 25% IIRC.Ironically, he also broke a lot of big runs as well. Yeah, you're right. I just found this which is a perfect visual representation of what you're talking about. I wish I could see what this heat map would like from just weeks 1-6 last year though. There's also this.https://www.profootballfocus.com/blog/2015/07/10/running-back-breakdown-run-lengths-part-2/ Biggest takeaw
  15. Well, obviously, I was talking about the coordinators and scheme, not the talent at receiver or RB. You're right that Cutler has been a constant for the Bears over the last several seasons - and the the offense looked great last season, second in scoring in the NFL. This year they are miserable, with virtually all personnel and coaches the same. How do you explain that? He was totally lucky all those games? He's suddenly way worse than last year? Or could it be the NFL adapted to Trestman's offense and he has no counter? Could it be related to the fact that every Trestman offense is far worse
  16. That is the opposite of my thinking. The way I see it... If you have 1-15 team, Cutler may be able to take you to 7-9. If you have a 15-1 team, Cutler may be able to take you to 7-9. This sounds clever and catchy and all, but it's pretty difficult to explain how a player can be both simultaneously +6 wins or -8 wins. I hope you're just hugely exaggerating your point that you don't believe Cutler is a winner. And, of course, Cutler has lead the Bears to a winning season multiple times, so, that doesn't really help your analysis here either. He was 27-13 as the starter from 2010-2012. So you're

  18. Not the exact same personnel. Last year they had Josh McCown. McCown was 3-2 in his starts last year, while Cutler was 5-6. McCown had a 9.1 AY/A last season compared to Cutler's 6.9 -- mainly because Cutler threw 12 interceptions while McCown threw only one. (Twelve interceptions last season might seem attractive when compared with his 18 so far this season. But he's got the exact same interception rate of 3.4% in both years.) I guess I'm not totally sure what your point is here, but I'll say that McCown was very fortunate in those 5 starts last year. He had many bad throws clang off the hand
  19. Chicago locals know this isn't true. Cutler is an obviously flawed QB, but Trestman is a complete nutjob. He has no business leading men, on the football field or otherwise, and his offensive system was completely exposed this season. Last season they were second in the league in scoring, and this season they're awful, with the exact same personnel. That's not Cutler's fault - no one was complaining about his play in Chicago last season. Every time Trestman has run an offense in the NFL, his teams experienced a massive drop in performance the second season. This isn't a coincidence. And, of co
  20. I'm worried that he will get Megatron'd and act as a decoy in the redzone. I can see this being one of those days where they bring in Graham on RZ packages and then Josh Hill ends up getting the TD. You know that if he only comes on the field for redzone plays, the Lions are going to be absolutely blanketing him. Given that he's not 100% on top of that makes me feel like this game has a relatively high likelihood of being a total bust for Graham owners. If the news we're hearing about his usage is accurate, his floor is 0, his ceiling is probably 2 catches for 18 yards and 2 TDs. I wouldn't
  21. I still like this guy the most of all of these Baltimore RBs from a value perspective, at least in dynasty. He seems like he is at least a solid runner, and, perhaps most importantly as a rookie, he's very strong in pass protection and can catch. That's huge for any rookie. I wouldn't be surprised if he outshines Pierce in limited action during those first two games that Rice is out, and then slowly carves himself out a larger and larger role as the season rolls on. I also could see Rice getting cut in the offseason if he underperforms, saving the Ravens a decent amount of money and cap space.
  22. If true, that should bode well for Pead, because he played out of the spread a lot in college.
  23. Because this year, he won't be missing the entire offseason and the Coach is constantly talking him up? I think it's clear that he has every opportunity to take the lead back role, and Fisher seems to want him to seize it. Whether or not he does is another question. Ultimately, he's got to play well when it matters.
  24. Uh, as a Saints fan, I think you can relax, lol. Olsen in any way resembling the way Gates performs on the field is an absolute pipedream.
  25. I feel like I spent too much time trying to untwist logic pretzels this morning, and I just don't have much more of it in me. Also, taking your words out of my mouth is pretty tiring as well So, I'll keep it brief. Olsen has actually been the least productive of the NFCN starters over the last couple years, and its even worse than the numbers suggest due to some of the others starting fewer games due to injuries. Again, I'm not here to defend draft picks. You say that the Bears could have gotten a TE later but then you question whether or not it was a wasted pick? More pretzel logic. No
