  1. Something I haven't seen mentioned here is that players who joined Dynasty leagues this year (like me) for the first time at Phenoms had to pay year 1 AND year 2 (as a deposit). So in a $100 league you pay 200$. We got doubly screwed

    Has it always been that way for Phenoms dynasty leagues, or did the need for 3 years pay suddenly develop this year?

    I think it's been that way for a while to encourage people to stick around rather than drafting a redraft type team selling all your draft picks and then quitting if you don't contend for the title.

  2. This is BS. He's already making profit off every league by keeping his commission 10%-20%. If he dipped into the escrow money then he's a crook. Whether he just stole all the money and ran or if this BS software story is legit he's a dirtbag Ponzi schemer. I joined 4 dynasty leagues there and one high stakes league. I better get my $ back.

  3. I'd like to see him with a team where he Walks in as the clear cut #2.

    :huh:

    You're aware that every team in the league bypassed him for the entire draft, right?

    Where do you think he walks in as a clear cut #2? People keep talking about how awesome his talent is. I guess NFL management without exception are missing it.

    Maybe "walks in as the #2" was a poor choice of words. How about Arizona? After Ellington it's trash. Have you watched his tape? I think most would agree he's got NFL talent.

  4. The Browns need to cut him immediately so he can go to a team that will use him.

    Wut?

    It's obvious the Browns don't value him. Not even a snap in the first preseason game? He had plenty of other suitors lined up. They will line up again. He needs to get out and get a shot with a team that is more depleted and value what he can do. It's obvious the Browns aren't even going to give him a shot at climbing the depth chart. I'd like to see him with a team where he Walks in as the clear cut #2.

    if there was a situation where he'd be handed the clear #2 don't you think that team would've drafted him?

    There are plenty of situations where he could have an easier path to the primary backup. If nfl scouts never missed on anyone then there would be no busts and no successful UDFAs

  6. I'm off the train, quickly flipped him for a WR upgrade. I just don't see this kid panning out. He was never an accurate passer in college, and played in the defensively toothless Big 10. He got to beat up on scrubs in preseason week 3 and played fairly well. He started week 4 playing against probably half starters and had a terrible game, stalling in the red zone with three straight incompletions, and then throwing a pick on the next series to finish 3-8 INT.

    Yes he can run. But defenses should know how to play a mobile QB that can't really throw after watching Tebow.

    Nobody is arguing he is a great NFL QB or that he is showing elite potential. But the optimism isn't unrealistic if you allow for the possibility that his mechanics have been improved over the summer (he admitted he didn't know how to throw a football) and to me it looks like as long as he can extend the play he can find an open receiver. His rushing #'s for QB's are probably going to be top 5 in the NFL if not top 3. He's a better passer than Tebow and we all know how good he was for fantasy owners. Sure there's going to be tons of mistakes and it won't be pretty but the risk is practically ZERO and the upside is better than anything you can get scraping the bottom of the QB 2 barrel.

  7. All aboard the Pryor Train as my QB2! For those that didn't draft a backup like me this was a gift.

    He looks like a completely different passer from that atrocious preseason game in '12.

    Maybe all that work with his Brady's QB tutor worked! CPalmer said this kid was the hardest working QB he's seen. Obviously he wants it and is getting better and putting in the work.

    Giev this kid some time to see what you've got. He's sitting behind Kaep for me in my 14 teamer so I don't nee to rely on him but I would rather have the upside on my bench rather than have a Ponder, or Gabbert sitting there wasting space.

  8. Update on Goodson - apparently didn't need x-rays.

    From The SF chronicle about Goodson:

    As for Goodson, the fourth-year running back turned his ankle in the third quarter after replacing McFadden. Vic Tafur of the San Francisco Chronicle reported after the game that team doctors felt Goodson didn't need X-rays so his injury is probably just a pain tolerance issue at this point.

  9. interesting tid bit:

    Pat McInally, a graduate of Harvard University, is the only football player to record a confirmed perfect score of 50.Ryan Fitzpatrick, also a Harvard graduate and currently a quarterback with the NFL Buffalo Bills, had also been rumored to have scored a perfect 50 points in only nine minutes. However, Fitzpatrick denied this, saying that he had left at least one of the 50 answer spaces blank. The Wall Street Journal later reported that Fitzpatrick's actual score was 48 but that Fitzpatrick's claim of completing the Wonderlic in only nine minutes was accurate (This report appeared in the September 30, 2005 edition of the WSJ in the Weekend Section).

  10. Tyler Thigpen over again?

    Exactly - ....rode Thigpen in 2008 and Chan Gailey is doing the same thing again here with his system....I just pray the rest of my league are non-believers and I can scoop him up his week - probably a few weeks too late though...if I don't get him I'll be going after Kitna - either is a better option than Cutler (with that Bears O-line)
  11. I certainly love CJ's matchup with the Lions this week, but who can I bench out of my other three backs:Barber IIIDeAngeloTurnerI thought about Barber but a good matchup with SEA, DeAngelo is on fire, and how can you bench Turner after last week and a matchup with his old teamCannot play CJ IMO, but a nice problem to have.

    I think I'm going to bench Gore for the first time all season and start CJ!!! :bag: (with Turner and Thomas Jones)
  12. A good problem to have: I have to sit either Gore, Turner or Thomas Jones to play CJ. I promised myself I'd start CJ against Detroit but I am feeling antsy. You could make the case that Lendale takes the majority of teh carries this week since he is rested and it's a short week?? What to do ....what to do??

  13. I wonder if it will change naysayers opinions if he rips an Adrian Peterson type game ...say give or take 200 combined yards and 2-3 TD's by week 6?? The similarities are striking. Let's break it down: Electrifying rookie RB's who share carries behind more "proven" backs with good O-lines and terrible to below average QB's on teams with great defenses.Now just for fun let's compare Adrian's 2007 rookie year and CJohnson's 2008 rookie year thru 3 games........ att yds avg lng td rec yds avg lng tdCJ 50 276 5.52 51 0 7 51 7.2 20 1AP 64 271 4.23 16 1 8 160 20 60 1 By my truly unscientific and purely biased but nonetheless absolutely correct logic .....CJohnson has until about game 6 before he must turn in his 220yd 3 TD performance. Until then he is perfectly on pace for Rookie of the Year...hehe....just sayin'... :thumbdown:

    You bastage. Don't say that. Now I can't bench him.
    This ALSO brings up a good point. If you have CJ this year and you think you are in a similar situation to AP last year ....do you start CJ against bigger defenses or bench him? The AP owner in my league last year of course had AP on the bench (as I'm sure MANY MANY more people did that would not like to admit) for his 224-3 week against CHICAGO. Then he played him the rest of the season through thick and thin. He followed up by 2 mediocre games then his huge 296-3 game against SD. Then 2 good games out of the next ...Yes AP is great and talented and in a great position (as is CJ) but what good is it if you only realize what you have after some big bench points slap you in the face?? I'm not saying I'm starting him every week although so far I have save week 1....but I am hoping I won't be slapped in teh face with a 200+ 2+TD game while he's on my bench....hmmm ...I may have just convinced myself to stick him despite the Minnesota matchup!!!
