  1. Thanks for taking the time to put this together! As always, I really enjoyed reading it.
  2. Bump. The EBF annual rookie dynasty rankings is my favorite thread each year so hoping by bumping it encourages EBF to post his 2021 Rookie Dynasty Rankings if he sees this. 🙂
  3. In addition to Faust who posts a lot of useful links in the correct threads, I think these two guys do a good job. 1. @EBF His annual Dynasty rookie rankings is my favorite thread posted each year. 2. @ZWK He seems to put a lot of effort into his ongoing dynasty rankings thread.
  4. 12 team dynasty 0.5 PRR start 1QB, 2RB, 3WR, 1TE, 1 Flex (RB, WR, or TE), 1 K, 1 DEF with 24 player rosters + IR. QB - Patrick Mahomes RB: Alvin Kamara and Aaron Jones WR: Davante Adams, Mike Evans, Calvin Ridley, and Brandon Aiyuk TE: Travis Kelce K: Justin Tucker DEF: Browns Notable title week bench players (players that would have improved my point total): Tom Brady, A.J. Dillon, J.D. McKissic, Rams defense, and Cardinals Defense (cut just before kickoff for Andrew Luck)
  5. Team B did nothing wrong. I would do the same thing almost every single time. Also, in dynasty leagues teams no longer in the playoffs should still be able to pick up free agents. Hell, in my league, an owner had no backup QB at the beginning of Josh Allen's bye week. I proceeded to pickup the free agent QB who I thought had the best matchup that week. I had the team pegged as the 2nd or 3rd best team in the league but their actual number of wins was significantly less then their expected number of wins i.e. they had a good all play record. I was not playing him that week either. FWI although the team lost that week they still managed to sneak into the playoffs at 6-7 and is now in the title game.
  6. Yep, I first want to say thanks for posting ack88. What did stick out to me most was Claypool's ranking. As you mentioned, Jefferson currently looks like the best WR in this class. Is Claypool even the 2nd best wide receiver in this class though? Note my league is 0.5 PPR. I know these rankings are are standard scoring so there would be difference in how many points someone has or how many points a player is averaging. A lot of people are very high on Lamb who is averaging a similar number of ppg then Claypool. Additionally, Brandon Aiyuk in my league is averaging more ppg then Claypool with a worse QB situation and a higher draft pedigree. I think Aiyuk missed the first game of the season due to injury and two more from being on the Covid list. Finally, there is Tee Higgins who is not far behind Claypool as well.
  7. I have the Browns (@ Jets), Cardinals (vs. 49ers), and Rams (@ Seahawks). I picked up the Browns in week 8 and the Cardinals in week 9 for this very moment when it became clear that I was likely to get a week 14 bye. However, now the moment has arrived I find myself completely unsure on who to start. The Dolphins are also sitting on the waiver wire (@ Raiders) but my opponent has more blind bid dollars left then me so even if I wanted them I may not get them. Sacks are worth 2 points in my league so those are king here.
  8. 2017 Playoffs wonder - Blake Bortles. I had issues at QB all season long and a strong roster elsewhere. I saw he had a very easy playoff schedule. I traded a 4th round pick for him and he was the difference in me winning the title.
  9. 12-team 0.5 PPR Start 1 QB, 2 RB, 3 WR, 1 TE, 1 Flex (WR, RB, TE), 1 DEF, 1 K Traded George Kittle and 2021 2nd (late) Received: Travis Kelce, Jamaal Williams, LA Rams Defense (week 15 vs. Jets) , and 2021 4th (early) My team is currently 9-1 and leads the league in total points. His team is 3-7. I don't love the value here for me but production from RBs can go south very quickly and I want to maximize my chances of winning the title this year. My RB starters are Alvin Kamara and Aaron Jones with my backups before this being J.D. McKissic, Zack Moss, Latavius Murray, A.J. Dillon (IR/Covid), Tarik Cohen (IR), and Marlon Mack (IR). I do own T.J. Hockenson as well so that made swapping Kittle for Kelce, who is four years, a little bit easier to swallow.
  10. Any chance that Donald Trump's unsubstantiated claims of election voter fraud cause enough Republicans to believe that it is a fruitless endeavor to vote in the special election and in turn allow the Democrats to pull off a double upset win?
  11. I bid $50 out of $100 and got him in a 12-team dynasty league. with 24 man rosters (with IR spots). Other bids were for $30 and $11. I was surprised there weren't more teams that bid on him. I think it's more likely then not he's a flash in the pan but in this format guys coming off a week like he had aren't available on the waiver wire all that often. I think some owners struggle to adjust their FAAB strategy from redraft to dynasty. In a redraft league with more shallow rosters he's not worth nearly that much. Maybe $10 out of $100?
  12. 3 - I think 98% or 99% of this country is already heavily locked into one candidate or the other.
  13. Maybe add a week 18 of the regular season since this is bound to happen again?
  14. 24 man roster 0.5 PPR Start 1 QB, 2 RB, 3 WR, 1 TE, 1 Flex (RB, WR, or TE), 1 DEF, and 1 K Traded JuJu Smith-Schuster and 2021 3rd Round Pick (currently 3-0 & league leader in points so probably late) Received Calvin Ridley and Tyler Boyd. I would still take JuJu over Ridley but was interested in upgrading my flex after Courtland Sutton went down for the year.
  15. Campbell probably isn't out for the season. He has a sprained MCL and PCL.
  16. Also, I believe MFL will award a team with a lesser bid before a team with a higher bid if the team with the higher bid already had a successful bid in waivers that day. For example, say Team 1 bids $25 on player A with priority #1 and $20 on player B with priority #2. Team 2 bids $10 on player B with priority #1. Assuming no other team outbid Team 1 for player A, Team 1 would get player A for $25 and Team 2 would get player B for $10.
  17. In redraft sure. In dynasty he's probably worth 30% of your budget assuming 12 teams and 22 to 24 man rosters.
  18. We just finished our draft. 24 man roster (teams don't have to cut players until about a week before the season starts) 0.5 PPR Start 1QB, 2RB, 3WR, 1 Flex (RB, WR, or TE), 1DEF, 1K https://www66.myfantasyleague.com/2020/options?L=36406&O=17
  19. I traded Phillip Lindsay to the Melvin Gordon for him. He seems like an early 2nd to mid second to me.
  20. They're really quite different players though. Addai was used much more extensively in the short passing game then Mack has been and if I remember right he was also the third down back. Mack seems to be used significantly less as a receiver and is also often replaced on third downs by Nyheim Hines or Jordan Wilkins. Mack is much more explosive as a runner then Addai ever was though and I think a bit better at breaking tackles.
  21. Thanks for doing this every year EBF. I really enjoy it. You seem to have a real knack at identifying breakouts at wide receiver in particular. JuJu, Deebo, A.J. Brown, and I think Brandon Marshall come to mind though I'm sure there are others.
  22. I would project Lamb going 1.08 in my league as well actually. The owner of the 1.05 and 1.06 as well as the owner of the 1.07 are both Vikings' fans so Jefferson will most likely go ahead of Lamb in my league. Also, teams tend to favor RBs over WRs in my league so I imagine Dobbins and probably Swift and Akers will go ahead of Lamb as well though not a complete lock. The owners of the 1.05 through 1.07 picks are definitely stronger right now at WR then RB. I guess Lamb could go ahead of Jeudy in my league. Ultimately, I feel better about hitting on the 2.01 or 2.05 then I do the 1.08 or whatever player I cut now by doing this deal. Then I was able to upgrade my 2.08 to 2.06 by trading away a player I most likely would have cut.
  23. Happened a few days ago but saw a little chatter here about the 1.08. 0.5 PPR 6 pt all TDs - Start 1 QB, 2RB, 3WR, 1TE, 1 flex (RB, WR, or TE), 1DEF, and 1K Traded 1.08 , 2.08, and Jalen Hurd Received 2.01, 2.05, and 2.06 We haven't drafted yet.
  24. This is a pretty far theory which I think I heard someone else say as well but I don't really buy because she has said she feels betrayed in confessionals and also said in a premiere panel she had with Jeff Probst and a few other cast members she felt hurt Rob didn't tell her. I believe she most likely did feel hurt/betrayed but also possibly embellished her feelings so she wouldn't be seen as a pair with Rob like Jeremy and Natalie were because Sandra really only cares about herself in this game. I think I heard that theory floated by Jamal and RHAP and I think there's a good chance it's true. Sandra is an elite social player. I would disagree. We are three votes in but with EoE there are likely 16 votes still to go. There is still plenty of time to eliminate big threats. Nobody is going to forget about Rob, Parvati, Sandra, or Kim (who I would also put up there). First vote: Natalie - First votes are typically anybody but me votes and apparently Natalie and Jeremy did little to separate themselves. Honestly, it was a disadvantage for them to start on the same tribe together. Natalie and Sarah should have been flipped. Natalie was probably the best female athlete in that tribe so I think taking her out was probably ill advised for everyone besides Adam and Denise who needed to take the target off their backs. Without really fully knowing the tribe dynamics as we probably see less then 1% of what goes on, I'm not sure who the tribe should have targeted first. Second vote: Amber - Splitting hairs a bit here, but I think Kim might have been the better choice here. She played arguably the best game of all time in One World and did it on her first try. Most of her cast wanted to take her to the end and she would have beaten almost anyone in the end. She ran circles around that cast. You could argue her cast was full of sheep but Monica and Troyzan from her cast have made final threes in returnee seasons. Granted, I think both were 0 vote finalists. Rob also ran circles around his cast on Redemption Island but it was his fourth try and based on post game interviews it sounds like there were quite a few people he could not have beaten if they had gotten to the end. Of course, he was smart enough to know who he would and would not beat and is showing again in Winners at War that he is a serious force at Survivor. To counter the point that voting out Kim would have been the better move, Amber probably would have flipped in a swap if she swapped onto the same tribe as Rob so it seems like the Red Tribe probably made the safer play here even though Kim could flip as well. Tyson, who is probably the fifth biggest threat in the game and also very close friends with Rob in real life (much closer then Lex ever was), was probably not a good choice to vote out first because he is such a beast at challenges. Third Vote: Danni - Danni was absolutely the right choice for the tribe to vote out even though Parvati is a superior player and a far bigger threat. With EoE in play, I think there are still 16 more player eliminations to get Parvati out. A swap is likely coming and a Survivor player should aim at alienating as few people as possible in these pre-swap votes so that hopefully no one flips on them after they swap. Had new school voted out Parvati, I feel like Ethan and Rob would have absolutely flipped to red after a swap which would greatly reduce the chances of Jeremy, Adam, Denise, Michele, or Ben winning the game or even making the merge. Plus Danni basically showed you can't count on her long term by flipping on Parvati so quickly. For example, after Missy decided to blindside Chelsea last season instead of voting out Karishma, Dean never voted with her again and Karishma still wasn't loyal to Missy (unlike Chelsea) so the move basically cost her two votes. Chelsea was definitely a bigger threat then Karishma but the bigger move is often not the right move. Finally, when they do swap, Parvati and Rob will likely be voted out in a swap before Ethan, Jeremy, Adam, Denise, Michele, and Ben if they swap into a minority against the red tribe. 1. Rob has been historically excellent in puzzles. I think having just seen his wife voted out probably put him in a bad mental state. Because of that, I agree he should of been doing the heavy lifting but normally he's such a puzzle ace that he would usually be better there despite being one of the stronger players physically. 2. This means absolutely nothing. Tribal council is one to two hours long I believe. Someone could do 75% of the talking at tribal and be made completely invisible on television if that's how the editors decide to portray that person. I'm pretty sure Jeff picks on everyone and then the editors show what they feel is important to the overall narrative of the season or is a just a really funny moment. I would agree with this though I'd also put Kim on their level based on her play in One World. She's struggled this season and doesn't seem to be playing particularly well from the bottom but at least she's aware she's on the bottom. Also, Sophie said otherwise in her confessional, but Tyson was not the right person for her to give half her idol to. If Tyson and Kim remain on the bottom and go to tribal council again then Tyson most likely isn't giving her that idol half. Kim took a gamble and gave it to Sophie. Based on what Yul posted on twitter after week 1 for reasons why he didn't vote out Kim, I think Yul probably would have been the right choice but all of the players are operating on way less information then we as viewers are.
