  1. The goal is not to win week 1. As long as the rules are spelled out at the beginning, and everyone plays by the same rules, it's fair to all.
  2. I wasn't counting on a free week, but I'm surprised to see the number of entries/cuts. I started with a 15-man roster, and still have 14 going into next week, losing only Vance McDonald. I only beat the cutline by 15, but I think I'm in good shape going forward. I didn't swing for the fences, loading up on one team, so I hope to do well in week 3 as well. Go Pack, Go Chiefs, Go Bills, and Geaux Saints! Josh Allen $40 Stefon Diggs $32 Tyler Bass $14 Vance McDonald $2 Clyde Edwards-Helaire $17 Darrel Williams $4 Matt Gay $4 Los Angeles Rams $5 Alvin Kamara $28 Jared Cook $15 New Orleans Saints $11 Aaron Rodgers $36 Davante Adams $36 Equanimeous St. Brown $4 Jace Sternberger $2
  3. According to the ESPN site, • If Hill is left in the TE, Flex or WR/TE slot, users will be unable to make any roster or lineup moves until they remove him from that slot. So you can keep him there if you maintain the same lineup. Until, you know, they arbitrarily change that as well.
  4. The rules were stated before the season started. You don't change them mid-stream. https://support.espn.com/hc/en-us/articles/115003849751-Position-Eligibility
  5. Early on in my career, one of my mentors defined fairness in a way that I still do to this day, 25 years later. In order to be fair, something has to meet two criteria. 1) the rules are spelled out before the game starts. 2) everyone plays by the same rules. Say what you want about his eligibility, but you cannot call it unfair.
  6. 11.4 under the cut line, and all of Alvin Kamara's points will count. Very unlikely that's going to be enough, and even if it is, I'm not making it any further with Matthew Stafford as my lone QB. Thanks, Logan Ryan. Oh, and thanks NFL for benching my Broncos as well.
  7. For every time in my life I've heard "it's not fair", I've given my definition of fair. 1) The rules are explained before the event starts 2) Everyone plays by the same rules. That's it. That's the list. (and at 58 years old, I'm WAY too old to be using that phrase.)
  8. Like no other season, this year might as well just be considered the fantasy football Lottery. If you were lucky enough to draft players who aren't going to lose games for themselves, their teams, or their opponents - you have a pretty good shot of winning.
  9. With Jarwin gone for the season, it may actually work out to my advantage to have Jonnu out when more teams will make the cut. At least that's what I'll tell myself. Feeling fairly good about getting to week 5. We'll check back in 72 hours.
  10. We should definitely match NFL roster numbers as soon as they add IDP and punters to this contest.
  11. Chris Carson's MRI this morning revealed a slight knee sprain and he may be able to go week 4.
  12. Donated. This is the first week I've had any interest in this contest, thanks to having live scoring back.
  13. I'm sitting nervously in the clubhouse with 208.8 and hoping the line doesn't move 60 points tonight. (you mean like that?)
  14. Sorry, I’m going to say it. This contest is significantly less fun without live scoring.
  15. Oh, I read it. But I knew that having an entry 12 hours ahead of time was an exercise in futility. And I was right. My final iteration came at 11:35 last night. I think. Might have been slightly later. And I've never hated a team I've put together as much as I do this one. But then again, I've never even made the final 250, so maybe that's a good sign (it's not). Dak Prescott - $19 Matthew Stafford - $14 This is the first time in years that I've limited myself to two QBs, so I wanted guys who could potentially score high every week. Alvin Kamara - $32 Austin Ekeler - $26 Jonathan Taylor - $21 Cam Akers - $18 Phillip Lindsay - $11 Obviously, this is where I spent my money, and I'm looking for the two rookies to progress and get me some later-season scores. DJ Moore - $23 Adam Thielen - $21 Cee Dee Lamb - $12 Jerry Jeudy - $12 Alan Lazard - $7 Bryan Edwards - $3 I like Moore and Thielen here, and then had to fill in with a whole lot of guys I'm taking chances with. Blake Jarwin - $9 Jonnu Smith - $9 A couple of guys who are probably due for breakout seasons. Easily my weakest position, but I couldn't bring myself to spend up at TE with so many possibilities elsewhere. Jason Myers - $4 Sam Sloman - $2 Non-descript, sure. But these two guys have EIGHT games against WAS, NYG, NYJ, CHI, ARI and LAR. Four of those eight are during the playoffs. Colts - $3 Giants - $2 Cardinals - $2 I never spend on defense. The only reason I went with the Colts was because this final roster gave me an extra dollar to spend. I'm currently in 6086th place
  16. I had an auction draft tonight and went all in on two RBs (I'd have rather had Saquon, but I wasn't chasing him at 75+). Guys were going (what I thought was) way to high early, and I got deals on WRs late that I didn't expect, especially spending the money I did at RB. So this one is bragging (should I start clearning space for a trophy?). $200, 14 team PPR, 1 QB, 2RB, 2WR, 1FL, 1TE, 1K, 1DT. Newton - 2 Burrow - 1 Roethlisberger - 1 (I don't need three QBs with a four-man bench, but Ben for a dollar? I'll sort out my QBs a couple of weeks in.) C-Mac - 88 Kamara - 68 Gibson - 14 Boyd - 9 Parker - 8 McLaurin - 5 Kirk - 1 Jarwin - 1 Koo - 1 (streamer) Colts - 1 (streamer)
  17. I don’t think there’s.a TE this year that somebody isn’t touting. I I’ll never pay up the price for the first two. If I can get 3, 4, maybe 5 near ADP, I’ll consider it. But if not, I’m just as likely to stream the position this year.
  18. 14 teams, 28 man rosters, 18 starters, IDP. Four offensive keepers (Carson, Cooper, Moore, Robinson) and one IDP keeper (Hunter). PPR, 1 point per tackle, 1 point per assist, 3 points per sack/int. 2 for ff or fr. Here's what I walked away with. QB - Matt Ryan, Teddy Bridgewater RB - Carson, Mostert, RoJo, Michel, Bernard, Armstead WR - Cooper, Moore, Robinson, Parker, Watkins, Edwards TE - Andrews, Howard PK - Will pick one up during first week of FA. Always stream for a buck a week. DT - Hunter, Allen, Heyward LB - Kendricks, Collins, Williamson, Bentley, Van Noy DB - Adams, Neal, Harrison, A Harris My thoughts - I'm probably a little weak at QB, but several had been inexplicably retained. I do like Bridgewater teaming up with Joe Brady, and the early schedule may give him some trade value. As always, ATL plays a ton (11) of games indoors, so Ryan is OK. RBs are screaming Zero RB, like it or not. If Mixon holds out or Fournette talks his way out, I can plug in their backups. I'm loaded at WR, set at TE, and stacked at DT and DL. LBs are a bit lacking. These guys are in love with LBs and they all go off the board pretty quickly. Hoping to snag an overlooked FA early in the season to plug in as a starter (although I like Williamson with CJ Mosley opting out). I feel pretty good about a playoff run with this squad. That's what I think. Anyone else?
  19. Sadly, that's why I'm using Fantasy Pros Draft Wizard. Love Joe to death, we were in FanEx together from the beginning (for you young 'uns out there, that was the first Experts League formed off of something called "newsgroups" way back in the 90's). Unfortunately the bulk of the good info these days seems to come from the forums. I'll keep subscribing here, because I feel like the subscriber contest alone is worth the price of admission, but I wish it was like it used to be (old timer's lament).
  20. Yeah, I know it's kind of sacrilege to be asking this here, so let me rephrase: Because I like to get opinions from various sources, where (besides FBG) do you find the most accurate projections for IDP?
  21. None of us are over 60, have any comorbidities, or frankly, buy into the hype. Maybe it's because we're all so science and numbers- oriented. At any rate, one of our league members opened a bar this year, so we'll have our annual live fiasco there.
