  1. Interesting article on how it's all about the D here. https://www.theringer.com/nfl/2021/9/22/22687006/raiders-defense-gus-bradley
  2. Yeah, I thought it's a pretty fair trade as well. Phandango had the depth to take a shot and upgrade the RB spot. None of these guys are proven, but at you trade the two with a little two season stink but still promising for the Waddle, getting the guy you want.
  3. Team B / Bombjack recap here. All in all this was a tough draft to capture youth at any sort of value - too many sharks! As a result, I started off a lot older than I was expecting heading in, but hopefully that means points this year. As the strategy played out (or I was kind of forced into?) I made several small trade backs for future round draft capital. None huge in and of themselves but was generally happy with them as I began to get content taking end of tier / players with a little more tread. Plus I was able to hang on to my future first which I was tempted to start offering up (still might once we get into season). Trades: My 2.06, 3.07, 5.07 for 2.10, 3.03, 5.03 My 4.06, 7.07, 9.07, 11.07 for 4.08, 7.05, 8.08, 11.05 My 6.06, 17.07 for 6.10, 14.10 My 10.06, 13.07 for 10.08, 13.03 My 12.06 (Chuba), 20.06 for 12.10, 15.03 Round 1 - Kamara. Starting at pick 7 goal was to go RB early then punt for a while. Round 2 - Traded back from 2.06 to 2.10 (with Jabarony who grabbed Chase, above). Had 4 guys in my sights here and just took the bump ups later. Ended up with Waller. Really thought about Diggs here but ultimately wanted a set it and forget it TE. Double bonus as Raiders fan. Round 3 - In the 3.03 spot to due to trade above. All the young WRs with big volume are gone, so took an older one in Hopkins Round 4 - At the 4.06 spot, got an offer to move back 2 spots from Penguin with a move from the 9th to 8th. He took McLaurin, who I was really thinking about. Ended up with Amari. Round 5 - It was at this point I looked at my first 4 picks and said, what the hell, looks like I need to really firm up a roster that will compete in year 1 - so took Lamar. Early for when I'd usually take a QB in these leagues, but I figure decent value vs. where he was post MVP year, plus now strengthened receiving core. Round 6 - Was really searching for value here, and couldn't find much. Took a shot with Juju hoping he can turn it around. Looking back, should have gone with Carson who Jabarony took with the next pick. My biggest weakness on this team is RB2. and that leads into... Round 7 - AJ Dillon. Started getting nervous on the "hybrid" zero RB strategy. A bit of shot in the dark here hoping there's some production that will come out of this after the crazy GB offseason Round 8 - Took Julio and Jalen Reagor. I'm looking for ceilings at this point - different points their career and hoping the talent can make it happen for these guys given health / team QB situations. Round 10 - Jamaal Williams. See Round 7 notes for Dillon above. Round 11 -12 With positions mostly filled out, wanted to start looking for some high return players, no rookies on the squad and some 2nd round rookie draft capital still on the board, started shooting some shots. Took Nico Collins, then Chuba Hubbard (subsequently traded for Javian Hawkins) Round 13-16 Given my team construction, decided to do some positional handcuffing and/or reclamation projects that can easily be dumped to make roster room if need be. Basically the opposite of how I would normally think about things but so much youthful value had been stripped out of this draft already. So took Ertz, Latavius Murray Stafford, and Hayden Hurst. Final roster: QB - Lamar, Stafford RB - Kamara, Dillon, J. Williams, L Murray, J White, Hawkins WR - Hopkins, Cooper, Julio, Juju, N. Collins, Reagor, A .Rogers TE - Waller, Ertz, Hurst
  4. Ha, guess so. It’s my only SF. Was definitely happy to land Lamb. Didn’t decimate the RBs as still have Barkley but definitely took it from a position of strength to one that will have to get a little scrappy with for RB2.
  5. FFPC: Miles Sanders, Myles Gaskin for CeeDee Lamb, Hayden Hurst, Future 3rd Value / long term side on CeeDee, but positional scarcity definitely gives me concern for really trying to win this season
  6. Crazy. Almost like it was a challenge or strategy test to have no single digit round picks except 1sts.
  7. That is pretty impressive. What trades did they make? Possibly paid a lot to move up from 10 to take Lawrence?
  8. FFPC (regular) 1.08 and 2.03 for Aiyuk and 4.11 I gave up the picks. Not a fan of giving up good picks because it takes some fun out of it but had a little room and trading counterpart is absolutely stacked with lots of top 50-60 overall assets. Long time league where I probably have more RB need (who doesn’t) but big fan of Aiyuks talent.
  9. Wow, highest I have seen Baker go as well.
  10. Did we decide standard or superflex? im down for either but it does seem like superflex is becoming the “new standard” for FFPC dynasty.
  11. Weird that in one of my leagues I entered a division where I’m the only different team. Other 3 were all together last year.
  12. (Non dynasty related. Not sure how long they have been there but just realized there are $5 best ball redrafts for the true draft junkies.)
  13. Yeah, I am the team on the receiving AJB in this trade. I didn't love giving up the draft capital assets, but kind of wanted to get my guy. At the end of the day, either side could come out a big winner or loser, biggest swing factors is if Sanders keeps value / gets drafted into committee, or flat out busts, and if Moore closes value gap with AJB, which is very possible given the skillset and potential QB upgrade as you note.
  14. Anyone know of any fantasy websites that would not count the Wed game towards Week 12???
  15. great list, thanks! Despite the injuries, don’t see how Saquon falls out of top 5 next year. Perhaps by some rankings, but ADP unless something big changes he’s gonna be way up there?
  16. Great point, and actually even more important because Bills/Dolphins and Colts/Titans are guaranteed two of the spots. Could take 11 wins.
  17. Tough loss being such a tight game the whole time. But you gotta be 98% perfect to beat KC and Raiders were only 85-90% after a few big missed opportunities (the first FG that should have been an opportunity to punch it in from the 1 and then the tough, but makeable Agholor drop) It did feel like KC O was just toying around at points today. They knew they could dink and dunk their way down the field, but didn't feel like they ever really went for the home run. Not sure if that was by design or the Raiders D game plan.
  18. Agree it was an important yet ugly win. I know it was close but really wish Ruggs made that play in the end zone where he stepped out. Should be expected of a first round WR, even one known as a speedster. Didn’t end up mattering but points off the board.
  19. Yeah, what's the deal? Cost me a missed opportunity in Dynasty waivers.
  20. Will be interested to see the snap counts. Bits of the game I saw looked like he was in and out alternating at the WR3 position pretty frequently.
