  1. Appreciate the thoughts and messages. As I said, I've been scaling back my involvement in FF over the past few years, but I do think I'll rise to the challenge and put out some full public rankings in the next week or two. I have a pretty good idea of what I think at RB/WR/TE already. I just need to dive into the QBs because I've done no work there. I'll save full comments for a later time, but I have Najee, Waddle, and Pitts as the top guys at their positions. They would all be top 3-4 on my board in most formats. Probably fading Etienne at his ADP, as I think he's more of a sprinter and
  2. Fun to read through this thread after a year. Not my best rankings, but I do think they improved somewhat as I worked through the tiers over time. Ending up with Lamb, Jefferson, and Aiyuk atop the WR tier aged well. Duvernay looks like a miss and it looks like I was too low on some guys (Claypool, Gibson, Higgins, Herbert). Probably should've been higher on the class in general. Live and learn. As for 2021, the moderators on here hit me with a 100 day ban last summer for making a relatively innocuous two paragraph long post in the politics forum, which IMO is not an acceptable way to tre
  3. RIP. Great poster. Always enjoyed and valued his commentary on here.
  4. I think I will keep at least one roster and I'm sure I'll pop in here from time to time, but thanks. I really haven't been as active posting the last few years regardless.
  5. Fist bump. πŸ‘Š Heart attack averted. That would've been an all-time gross one. Last night I took a glance at the WR scores and I think there was only one 50+ point week this entire NFL season (Tyreek recently). Figured I was safe. I guess the FF gods didn't appreciate my overconfidence though.
  6. πŸ˜„ πŸ€¦β€β™‚οΈ This game can't end soon enough. smh
  7. I've lost a lot of interest in football in general. When I watch sports now, it's mainly soccer or basketball. I don't love the NFL as an entity. Football itself is a violent and dangerous game, and I'm constantly losing key players to big injuries (one thing that this particular roster was lucky to avoid this season). That's not really the main point for me though. I've been involved with dynasty leagues since all the way back in 2003. That's a long time to do anything. Initially there was a lot of excitement and intrigue. That faded over time, but the challenge to persevere still linger
  8. I really shouldn't post this until the results are official, but I'll win the HyperActive 1 dynasty trophy tonight unless Stefon Diggs puts up 50+ standard PPR points. These are 24 team dynasty leagues split into two conferences of 12, with separate player pools for each conference. I've been playing in this league since 2006 and have come close a few times before, but this will be my first time at the top of the mountain if the result holds. Getting to this point has been a multi-year process of bad decisions, mistakes, learning, good decisions and finally some good luck. Here's my lineup and
  9. I don't plan to post much on FBGs in the future, but I just want to say that Pitts and Waddle are 🀩. I had the 1.04 dev pick in the summer and those are the two guys who really popped off the screen for me. Nothing that's happened since then has dampened my enthusiasm (though they've each picked up some durability questions). Pitts is doing crazy things for a college TE from a statistical standpoint, so I'm curious to see how much your system likes him. He's a TE in name only, as he really functions like a 6'6" WR on the field. The closest thing I've seen from a talent standpoint was a pre-inj
  10. I've been one of the biggest Mixon bulls since day one. I think he's one of the top 5-10 backs in the NFL on raw talent alone, but at some point potential has to translate into production. With Burrow potentially out for some or all of next season, you have to wonder if the Bengals will remain a dumpster fire for the foreseeable future. I've always felt that Mixon in Cincy is like Lynch in Buffalo. Great player. Bad situation. With Lynch, it wasn't until he got into a better situation that he was really able to realize his full potential. With Mixon, you wonder if that will ever happen. I'm no
  11. We're wrapping up our devy draft right now and Waddle was one of my top two choices on the clock at 1.04. I ultimately went with Kyle Pitts instead (TE-premium), but it was not an easy decision. It was basically a coin flip for me and I opted for the guy who has more format-specific value. In a standard PPR league I would be thrilled to get Waddle. I noticed him last season and when I was going through highlights of this class he was one of the few guys whose ability really popped off the screen. I would say he's the WR version of Darren Sproles. Lacks ideal height, but has very good spee
  12. Aren't you the guy who traded out of the 1.01 to take Ruggs? Too early to reach a verdict on that one, but I don't like your odds and I'm a Ruggs owner in 1 league and a Clyde owner in 0. The gymnastics some people will perform to convince themselves that they didn't make a mistake would put Simone Biles to shame. The thing about the anti-Clyde crowd is that they pick and choose which measurables count and which don't. We discussed all this in the thread about Clyde. His absolute weight/speed don't look special on paper, but on the other hand he has an extremely high weight for his low he
  13. All the Clyde paranoia is going to seem a bit silly in 4-5 months if there's a football season. He's highly-regarded by many, but some people are really hung up on the measurables and it's pretty misguided IMO.
  14. I've seen this Asimov quote circulating the Internet and it's never been more apt: β€œAnti-intellectualism has been a constant thread winding its way through our political and cultural life, nurtured by the false notion that democracy means that 'my ignorance is just as good as your knowledge.'” People who have never even been to Portland and have no first-hand knowledge of the city insist that they are more informed about Portland than people who, you know, actually live here. Like I said, it's wild to witness. It's like someone pointing at the sky and saying, "No, no, you're wrong. T
  15. People who have been marinating in Fox News and far-right media are largely beyond the point of intervention. They live an alternate reality. They hear what they want to hear, and perform whatever mental gymnastics are required to confirm their views. With the fragmentation of traditional media and the rise of social media, it is very easy to find a dark corner of the Internet that will tell you whatever you want to believe on whatever issue. I walked by the protestors on a nightly basis for probably a month solid, but suddenly a guy from the middle of nowhere knows more about the situati
