  1. A couple of years back we had a team not address their backup QB until week 7 when their starter was on a bye. By that time there were few starting QBs available. His opponent grabbed the last QB on ww and he tried to scramble to make a trade but couldn't make it happen. He took a donut at QB and a loss. The league was fine with this result since it was the owner's fault for not addressing earlier.
  2. We have a rule designed to prevent such a thing. A BB or FCFS add can't be dropped until the next week. One caveat is the added player can be dropped if the replacement is started that week. The caveat is there to allow teams to fill a starting K or idp spot if one of their starters gets hurt later in the week. I'd highly recommend implementing a rule. Our rules evolved over time. It's difficult to capture every scenario in the rules from the get-go. Since there are no rules to prevent in this case, this is where the commish comes in and has to make a judgement call and I believe he should disallow these transactions as they clearly are not in the spirit of fair competition.
  3. Dynasty PPR: Trade 1: Team A gets Dalvin Cook Team B gets 2019 1st (mid) and James Connor Trade 2: Team C gets Melvin Gordon Team D gets Isaiah Crowell and Calvin Ridley Who won each?
  4. I'd go Yeldon, JAX will run alot. Can't trust Henry yet. https://forums.footballguys.com/forum/topic/770396-isaiah-crowell-or-james-white-ppr/
  5. Yup, go Stills. Looks like the #1 target for the Tannehill. https://forums.footballguys.com/forum/topic/770396-isaiah-crowell-or-james-white-ppr/
  6. Agree, definitely go Marvin. We only have a 1 week sample size so go with your highest ranked guy coming into the season. https://forums.footballguys.com/forum/topic/770396-isaiah-crowell-or-james-white-ppr/
  7. Cook for sure. https://forums.footballguys.com/forum/topic/770396-isaiah-crowell-or-james-white-ppr/
  8. Agree. Dixon or Snead? Dixon has more upside. I'd cut Snead. He couldn't cut it with Brees, Flacco's not Brees. He's likely a 3rd-4th option on his team at best.
  9. Cutting: Abdullah - possible he gets cut or traded but I think the ship has sailed on him. His upside seems to be a 3rd down back which likely has minimal value. Zay Jones - I don't believe his career so far could be much more disastrous. Buffalo's offense is going to be ranked #32 this year. O-line is a total poop show. Keep for now: Jarwin - has the best chance of being the starter. Blocks well, good hands and a quick release could allow him to gobble up short passes. Josh Allen - in a start 1 QB league, prospects on crappy offenses don't have much value. He's got a high ceiling (and low floor) but he's raw, waiting on him for 3 years while Buffalo gets some pass catchers and fixes their o-line seems likes it's not worth the roster spot. He'll likely be cut from my team by week 4.
  10. 12 team ppr 1/1/2/1 2 flex: 1. Gave: Team A. Burkhead and Tavon Austin for B. Jack Doyle TEs are scarce. 2. C. Brandon Cooks for D. Baldwin D is a contender, C is not.
  11. Thanks for the feedback on this. I was not involved in the trade but it certainly sparked some discussion as to who won in our league. I'd take Cooper, as a top 10 dynasty asset vs. a top 20 + a handcuff, maybe flex. RB value is volatile. It could turn into a deangelo/stewart combo where neither is that valuable. Dynasty PPR, 12 team, 32 man rosters with IDPs, start 1QB/1RB/2WR/2FLEX/1TE/1K/1DE/1DT/3LB/1S/1CB. Team A trades: RB ATL D. Freeman and RB ATL T. Coleman Team B trades: Amari Cooper

  13. $400 Salary cap ppr dynasty league, start 1QB/1RB/2WR/2FLEX/1TE/1K: Cobras get: Watkins $66 and Kendal Wright $6 Uranus Terror get: McCoy $70 and Pitta $3 who wins?

  15. Pats too cheap to pay for a WR instead they pay $5 million for a 3rd TE. Brilliant move.
  16. When was the last time a team carried 4 QBs? Highly unlikely they draft a QB imo.
  17. Yes. You're very perceptive. I'd still be happier in a hypothetical scenario if they signed a good OG rather than Harvin. The point being he's a rather superfluous signing. Happier now? I agree the money would have been better spent on Barksdale, Wisniewski, or Blalock. RT or Guard are needs imo. Kouandjio may be moved to guard plus I think it's more likely they choose a Guard at pick 50.
  18. Locker is definitely the guy we should target imo. I feel he's the only QB available with some untapped potential. His skill set is also closer to EJ Manuel's than any other guy available which makes it easier for the coaching staff to design a system to match that style. Hoyer would be my second choice but he's more of a game manager and has very limited upside.
  19. McCown. Certainly not at the top of anyone's wishlist. At 35 his skills are fading, and it's questionable what's skills he had to begin with. One good year in Chicago throwing to giant receivers (Jeffrey, Marshall, Bennett). Size is the exact thing the Bills lack at WR/TE. On the bright side, he can mentor EJ and can likely step in and be an adequate game manager should EJ stink it up. Should be a short-term deal which won't break the bank. This says alot about the other options out there. They stink. Sanchez - he sucked with Rex before. He looked ok under Chip last year but we have far more evidence that he's terrible. Locker - maybe there's an ounce of potential left but how will he ever realize it. He can't stay healthy. Mallett - the Pats wanted a 2nd for this guy a couple of years ago. They ended up moving him for a conditional 6th rounder. He's a never will be. Hoyer - another game manager but younger and consequently will want more bling and a longer contract. So it seems Buffalo's front office has decided the options above are not the answer. A logical conclusion. EJ only has 14 starts and needs more before we give up on a 1st rounder. If he fails we look to the 2016 draft.
  20. Sanu doesn't have the speed to lineup outside (4.67 40 time at combine). He works the middle as a possession type. Unfortunately for him, they also have Gresham, Eifert and now Hawkins working the middle of the field. Dalton's inconsistent and the slightly miss thrown balls are going to continue to result in Sanu taking big hits. Not sure how long he'll be able to stay on the field taking those kinds of hits. Sanu is a good blocker for a WR but that doesn't make him superior to Gresham or Eifert in this respect. Meaning his time on the field may decrease. Jones has proven to be a playmaker and redzone threat and is the best fit on the team to lineup outside across from AJ. I see Sanu's playing time decreasing while Jones's time increases.
