    I was an electrical engineering major and based by college career on getting a job in the electric utility industry (my dad was a lineman).  It's been a solid, sustainable career.  I went from making $27k in 1986 to low-level FBG numbers now.

    Based on what my alma mater does now for my major, I probably couldn't hack it. :lol: 

    If you're an engineer, the field is wide open and opportunities can be had and careers made.

    Also an EE from our alma mater, and honestly I don’t see what the point was.  I could count the good professors on one hand.

    This was my thought, too.  It's why I asked him what he meant.  I figured his argument would be that he could say that because he's Jewish but it was like he was trying to set a trap with stinky bait.  And it came off kind of odd.

    So he tried to do/say something lighthearted and people automatically assumed the worst. Gosh but that has to be annoying.

    drove past a CFA at around 10.15a the other day and it was like they were giving away cash, the lines for drive thru were epic.  what are people getting here for breakfast, besides religion?

    Spicy chicken breakfast burrito.  

  4. 5 weeks he had less than 10 points (0.5 ppr), which is my personal benchmark...others might vary.  That’s too many to be considered plug and chug IMO.

    For comparison, Dalvin Cook had 1.  Zeke had 1.  

    Henry, Ekeler, Chubb = 3.

    I like him.  I’m not selling, but unless I see GB commit to usage more I think I will still be playing matchups with him alongside guys like Drake and Mixon.  I just think that’s an unusual stance regarding a guy who finished #2. It fascinates me.

    As far as Opportunity Adjusted Fantasy points, he rates eighth among backs with a OFP of 238 with a FORP (Fantasy Points Over Replacement Player) of 61, which is second in the league to McCaffrey.

    Either way, for both these posts, the thing we can most infer, or claim to be true, is that he's getting elite fantasy opportunity and performing way beyond expectations even with that large volume and the quality of his opportunities seen, both of which have been favorable with respect to fantasy points. 

    I don’t question his ability/talent.  I question the regime.  I’m not sure they realize what they have, or maybe they do and aren’t as impressed as I am.  My point is I got him on the cheap in dynasty, as I imagine most did, and  therefore I have other RB talent as well.  I don’t think that despite his high finish I will able to auto-start him every week.  To be fair, I am the king of paralysis by analysis.    How about you...if you have other viable options, do you think Jones is matchup proof yet?

    I do not understand how you can justify saying something like that while there are millions of disabled people around the world who would, literally, love the opportunity to jump at anything.  Sad. 

    You’re saying that you notice people’s disabilities?  Kind of snooty.

    Not getting any good offers for either of them? I can only assume you've tried to trade one of them.

    I’m notoriously difficult to trade with in this dynasty league.  And over 20 years I’ve been so bad at drafting QBs that I kinda want to bask in it for a while.

  8. Be an active Dad.  Especially as your kids get older and get into all kinds of activities.  It would never have occurred to me to coach youth sports if my daughters hadn’t played, and it turns out that I love it.  I’m 48 and while I do miss certain aspects of my younger days, there is gobs of satisfaction to still be found.  You’ll be ok.  🙂

    Have to disagree with Dr. Dan as well.  The ACL is all about shiftiness.  Straight line speed would be much less affected.

    Wes Welker came back rather effectively the season after an ACL and MCL, and I’d consider him to be more shifty than speedy, no?
