  1. Reports from Training Camp are all glowing, but it seems like the Steelers have better-than-expected depth at WR - Smith-Schuster unsurprisingly has had a nice camp but there have been good notes on Moncrief, Diontae Johnson, James Washington and Diontae Spencer - even Eli Rogers has gotten good pub recently, and Switzer too before he got injured. I wonder if Spencer/Rogers/Switzer get traded/released.
  2. Need 1 more friend for a quest : im TheHank278 - 7169 8953 4629 - I’ve added most of you guys but need some lurkers to add me!
  3. Had to replace Boyd - I ended up picking Daeshawn Hamilton over the other low tier WR's on waivers (Tim Patrick, Danny Amendola, Jamison Crowder, Marquez Valdes-Scantling, Anthony Miller, Taywann Taylor) As an aside, is anyone thinking about adding Kalen Ballage?
  4. Keep the WR suggestions going, need some help now after Boyd's injury.
  5. Is this thing still on? Going to be starting this with my boys (7 & 5) - I need friends to send gifts to: Here's my trainer code: 7169 8953 4629 (Thehank278)
  6. Oh worthy FBG, I am in need of some opinions to make sure I'm doing the right move in my playoff. I am in a supeflex 14 man league and am playing the 6 seed. I have the following roster (Current starters in BOLD): QB: C. Newton (CAR), R. Tannehill (MIA), J. Driskel (CIN) RB: C. McCaffrey (CAR), S. Ware (KC), J. Wilson (SF), J. Adams (PHI) WR: A.Brown (PIT), M. Thomas (NO), T. Boyd (CIN), D. Hamilton (DEN) TE: R. Gronkowski (NE), C. Uzomah (CIN) K: J. Myers (NYJ) D/ST: Bears, Titans I need help deciding my RB2 and my FLEX, the flex can be ANY position includin
  7. For those planning to pick up Fitzpatrick, what % of FAAB are you considering using? I am in a 2 QB - 14 team league so I am planning to heavily bid since I only had Jameis and Cam (I dropped Fitzpatrick a few weeks ago)
  8. Due to horrible TE play from Jordan Reed, I find myself here - what do I need to know? He looked good vs. Pittsburgh, but alot of TE's look good vs. PIT. With Kroft and Eifert likely out for the season, should I make a speculative add here? Looking for homer insight.
  9. Call it bold or dumb - I'm starting Barber this week against Atlanta - James Conner just made absolute fools of this defense and he did it by blocking in pass protection, catching the ball and breaking tackles - not sure that fit RoJo' mold, seems like Barber's strengths.
  10. Shocked Adams is cut and they are keeping 5 ILB - thought Adams easily showed enough for a roster spot meanwhile Matakevich is only a ST’er at this stage of the game maybe Adams gets to P-squad but I think that’s a big mistake
  11. Oh man. I should start this back up again. I have unfinished business here
  12. What % of FAAB is everything thinking if he is available - I currently have 8% (8 out of 100 budget).
  13. I’m pleased by what I saw with some of the rookie LBs - Ola and Matthew Thomas flashed, also redshirt Lb Keion Adams looks like a contributor too. Matakevich looks a step slower than everyone else in the lineup - he makes the proper reads but doesn’t have the athleticism to get to where he needs to go - I like his grit for special teams, but he’s clearly not a starting ILB - wouldn’t be shocked if Steelers made a trade for an ILB before preseason is over
  14. When you look at the track record for Tomlin/Colbert in the 1st round, I generally defer to their judgement rather than other prognosticators. Obviously LB (both ILB and OLB) are significant needs, however there is a dearth of playmakers on defense right now and everything I've been hearing, seeing, reading says this guy is a playmaker and can play a bunch of different positions (including ILB in sub-packages, where Steelers play often). Give me a guy that has a high character, excellent measurables, innate football IQ with a desire to learn more and I'll take him over a guy who may
  15. Minor Smart House tinkering happening past week or so - finally got a smart hub (Wink 2) for Christmas that came w/ 2 smart bulbs and put those in basement where kids leave the lights on all the damn time - have a TPlink smart plug that I got as well to control the xbox (2 yr old kept turning on and off the xbox) - using Amazon dot to control everything including Nest and Harmony as well (since Wink doesn't control the switch). Everything working fairly good so far Also got a Lowe's gift card and was thinking of beginning to get a smart switch for living room, or a switch/sensor to contro
  16. I thought so too! In any case, the extra day will help Foster recover and Gilbert re-acclimated. I hope we can get Haden back on the field
  17. per Steelers twitter account: Steelers sign ex-Patriots RB Stevan Ridley - James Conner placed on IR in corresponding move
  18. Getting the BYE is critical - we need to buy as much time as possible for Haden to come back.
  19. Recapping BAL/PIT: PIT offense was overall masterful - there were some drives after Bell's minor injury that lagged and there was not any rhythm. Overall, extremely impressive. Defensively, there are some major things that need resolved in a short amt of time. The big play is still being given up, with long TDs to Chris Moore and Collins like a wild horse. The biggest fallacy of the Baltimore gameplan in the latter stages of the game was abandoning the run and putting the game in Flacco's hands. Flacco has NOT been good this year, and Collins had to be averaging 5-6 yrs per touch last nig
  20. Is he worth a speculative add in lieu of dropping a handcuff (i.e. Dropping C. West when you have Kareem Hunt)? My gut is telling me yes
  21. For me, it's either him or Smallwood/Alex Collins... so... I'm playing him
