  1. Appreciate the OP and the idea. Thought this team could make the playoffs but the last few weeks haven't been kind. 12 team PPR QRRWWWT + 1 flex (not QB) Tann/Hurts/Mac Chubb/Mixon/Conner/ETN MT/ARob/CDavis/Cooks/Gallup/EMoore Jarwin + crap MT and ETN loss hurt me; leaning toward blowing it up if I have a bad start to the season. Will this dog hunt?
  2. I don't play in 10 team leagues, but team A looks like he got 3 starters + Thomas; I will take that side
  3. Great topic(s); thanks for doing. I am doing these mostly off the top of my head (not reading others thoughts yet); more gut than analysis at this point: Tie on Goll/Fuller. depends upon team make up. Fuller for higher upside. Golladay more steady. both are FA so hard to say Jeudy. I am probably in the minority. Aiyuk has skills; I sold low in season on Deebo because of Aiyuk. I know both offenses have questions at QB and other wr's - just not sure I see how SF style supports Kittle, Deebo, Aiyuk, and the rb's.. Claypool. Not close for me. Damn the last one is tough; gun to head I take Godwin but would be happy with either. Both of these should be studs going forward but obviously need some clarity (QB/team). again, great idea for a thread...
  4. 1 QB ppr league. devy league so picks diluted some Trade made morning before week 13 trade deadline. me/contender give Golladay, Reagor, 2021 first non contender gives Diggs, DJohnson, 2021 2nd I didn't want to give up Reagor....
  5. Made a couple of trades right before Last Sundays games. Two different leagues; both ppr 1QB Me/Contender Gave: Zeke Got: Derrick Henry from non playoff team Me/possible playoff team Gave: Deebo, Cam, 2022 4th x2 Got: Cooks, Gronk, 2022 3rd was attempting a larger trade but didn't happen. not sure how I feel about the second trade.
  6. generic ppr 1Q/2RB/3WR/1TE/1Flex start up almost completed: https://www59.myfantasyleague.com/2020/options?L=17239&O=17
  7. I have in the last few years done 2 rebuilds after not doing any in my first several years of dynasty. I agree with several earlier postings: Ideally, the preference is to not do a full rebuild; but sometimes it happens. If you can't get value for aging assets and will make the playoffs; sometimes you have to ride the vets. when you blow it up; blow it all up. you need the earliest firsts possible for the true stud or to trade down for more players/equity trade for draft picks and youth; but you don't have to use all draft picks; trading some of them for players works There is an order of players to acquire in a rebuild and it starts with WR. Draft picks are a crap shoot - I look at a draft in tiers and trade down as much as possible to gain more picks/players rather than getting one "stud" in a draft. Been burned too many times in rookie drafts to rely on one pick (Saquon is an exception; not the rule). I try to acquire as many picks as possible during the year and then move around in the draft to get as many picks as possible within the tiers I see as possible fantasy starters. I try to trade any other picks - for players or picks next year if it is just a longshot draft pick... Example. in last year's draft (year 2 of rebuild); I traded 1.2 and 2.1 for 1.3, 1.11, and two 2020 seconds (probably late). I then traded 1.3 for 1.10, 2.3, and 3.6. Some may say I lost the second trade but I saw a break at 2.3 in last years draft and wanted two shots vs. 1. I also didn't want a RB (didn't want points this year). Instead of 1.2 and 2.1, I ended up with 1.10, 1.11, 1.13, and 2.3. I pushed most other picks to 2020 (including one in the mid first). Late in this year, I used some of those seconds and thirds to pick up Gallup and have 1.4 (bad lottery luck), 1.8, 2.2, and another second. Another example in my first rebuild is that I traded an early first and early second for two mid firsts; drafted Sterling Shepard and then M. Thomas. Again, I thought that is where the tier break was and wanted two shots vs one (and yes, I thought Shepard over Thomas). I targeted a three year build and was able to accomplish the playoffs year 3 and year 4 of the first one and a good shot next year in 3rd year of my second re-build. I would also ensure I am playing in multiple leagues while doing a re-build as they are boring in season for 2 years or so... I voted that most people over value picks (me included); I find that people value late seconds and early thirds more than me so I usually trade those picks. great topic and thanks to OP...
  8. Since it is the slow time of dynasty; going back to rookie draft time (early May) and posting more significant trades. QRRWWTFF PPR: A gave: TY, Paul Richardson, Sead B gave: Thielen A gave Carson B gave DeVante Parker A gave 1.4, 1.12 B gave DJ Moore, 2.09 A gave: Gurley, JBrown, Mike Evans B gave: Saquon, OJHoward, 2020 1st (playoff team; how good depends upon Gurley/Tyreek) A gave C.Sutton, ASJ,2.9 B gave TY 4.09
  9. 12 team ppr: http://www53.myfantasyleague.com/2019/home/49719#0
  10. Great Thread; thanks for starting and sharing Coop. I consider myself an average dynasty player (5 leagues; make playoffs in 2 or MAYBE 3/year; won a league this year but none in prev. two years). I am also in league 1 with Coop. My comments/observations/questions to coop on his strategies: Investing all available value into starting lineup and consolidate. I have always preferred depth and I think I am now convinced to move toward this approach; probably not this extreme but I see value in some open roster spots and I know I get too attached to players for too long. Trade rookie picks. Again, I am coming around and will do more of this in leagues where I have playoff caliber teams. In the league with Coop, I am in year 1 of a massive rebuild (let my team get old) and will use some picks (but I will also trade picks for younger players where I can). I looked at the last 3 drafts and Coop has had only 3 picks (earliest was 3.7) and none in last two years, so he follows this...…... QB/TE - I agree and follow these; I never understand teams that have 4 qb's in a start 1, 24 roster league... Other observations of Coop in this league: The man trades and trades fairly and I think that he is Understating the value/impact in that. He probably averages 40 trades a year. There have been several threads about lowball offers and how to respond. many people are like me and get offended (not saying it is smart or right) and write some owners off. Coop is the opposite and I think it benefits him. If I don't think one his offers is fair, I actually question myself. This helps him in a couple of ways, people come to him with offers b/c they know he is fair and will make deals (think about that - 90% of the people in your leagues aren't like that). Coop also sends out many (not multiple, many) offers at the same time, I have missed on some deals because I needed to think about it (you have to act fast with him or you may not get a deal done and sometimes that means taking the offer vs. negotiating). I think this is a big part of his success and I will be efforting to be much more active in sending offers. I think with more available trade calculators this is easier for all of us to do. Questions for Coop/theories on why he is successful: How much time do you spend in season on your 4 leagues? It takes me quite awhile to come up with fair trades; how many hours a week are you putting in? Talent evaluation? You don't draft rookies and don't follow college ball, so I assume you have some process for determining studs before they become studs; i.e. you have Kamara on all 4 teams and I believe in this league you acquired him early in his rookie year. Injuries. What do you do when they happen to a stud in season (with no depth). do you trade them (assume they get hurt week 1 and are out for the year but will make a full recovery). Again, greatly appreciate the insight.....
  11. drop Foreman - not sure he contributes this year. ross may not either but let's give him a few weeks.
  12. Hunt is valued more highly; you could get more if you want to trade him - why trade for 2 players who does what he do?
  13. this is probably all about preference; I would take Mixon + another starting rb or 2nd best wr in the draft. Will be interesting to see ranking of Mixon and Hunt at end of year..
  14. Me giving 1.5 and Jax D Get Mixon and Tenn D Jax was 3 points better than next D and 5 ppg better than the 10th def. looking to buy Mixon wherever I can; will find a new D.
  15. Frist trade is even; very even - probably depends upon where the first falls Trade 2 - team A; I assume other team needed the roster spots. Trade 3 - Hopkins. I traded Hopkins this offseason - I think you have to get one established player (min.) for such a stud; I don't do IDP...
  16. recently bought for 1.8 and J Ross. first offer to me was 1.3 and 1.8 for Freeman. I am low on Ross - curious on his value in 2018?
  17. Can I piggyback and add TE's and their value (relative to draft picks). ppr. Graham? Reed (if he is still alive)? Jonnu Rams TE Ebron (now in Indy) I would buy Burton for an early 3 - probably around where the last of the top 3 rookie te's go..
