  1. I certainly wouldn't use a first-rounder to pick up a player I dropped. But a third- or fourth-rounder? Sure.
  2. I literally wait until an hour before the deadline to make my cuts. I'll never understand why anyone would do any different.
  3. The league champ in an FFPC best-ball superflex league dropped Alexander Mattison, then used his 1.12 to pick him back up, which I think was his plan. But he took Mattison over Justin Jefferson, Brandon Aiyuk, Tee Higgins, etc. But it's a risk you can take, dropping a bubble guy and using a draft pick to get him back.
  4. We did this last summer. My total cost was under $350, but this setup requires an Apple TV and a portable speaker, which we already have. It could possibly also work with a Roku, Amazon Fire Stick or the Google streaming device. I got this projector: https://smile.amazon.com/gp/product/B01MY6GWSW/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_search_asin_title?ie=UTF8&psc=1 I got this screen: https://smile.amazon.com/gp/product/B07X629FKT/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o07_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1 For the screen, I went to the hardware store and got PVC pipe and connectors and built a frame about 10 f
  5. We had the early-1990s version of that in our house. It barely worked. We took it out after we bought the house and patched the holes. We have Amazon Echo devices in most of our rooms. The Alexa app allows you to use your phone to contact the Echo device in any of the rooms and talk anyone in that room. My teenage daughter has a cell phone, so I can just reach her that way, but my younger son doesn't have a phone. I was at the grocery store and needed to ask him something, so I was able to connect to the Echo in his room via my phone and talk to him. But that's pretty much a once-in-a-gr
  6. You can definitely win in 1QB FFPC leagues by streaming the position. I lost Dak in two leagues. In the first one, I still finished as the top seed. In the second league, I still made the playoffs. In 1QB head-to-head leagues, unless I have two top-10 QBs (which is pretty much never), I keep only one QB at cutdown. In 1QB best-ball leagues, I'll keep two QBs, because more of them tend to be rostered. Last year, I drafted Burrow at the 2.10 because my only other QB was Brady. I was able to flip Burrow and Jarwin for Dak. So If Lawrence falls to the 2nd and there's no one else intere
  7. I've been playing the FFPC format since 2011 and dynasty since 2017. It's probably my favorite platform right now. I think Pitts will go in the top six in 1QB leagues, depending on landing spots for the RBs who aren't Etienne and Najee. My feeling on rookie TEs in FFPC leagues is that it's so incredibly hard to use those roster spots to hold on to them. It's so rare for a rookie TE to contribute right away, even with supposed can't-miss prospects like Hockenson and Fant, but in order to land guys like that, you have to draft them in the first round. Ideally, you want your first-round pic
  8. I can't say enough how unexpectedly moving this was. My wife suggested it, and the rest of us (me and my 10th-grade daughter and sixth-grade son) were like "uh sure I guess," but it was really, really well done. One of the best things we've watched in months.
  9. I loved the part in Season 3 with all the parents in the school auditorium, right after Daniel says something, a guy in the back yells, "I heard you were the REAL bully!" One of the most enjoyable parts of the show is how the writers keep it self-aware.
  10. I don't understand. How was Trump able to issue a statement to the masses without Twitter?
  11. I'm of the opposite view. I think that saying Twitter censored Trump is loaded. If the government bans certain speech or speakers, that's censorship. Twitter isn't the government. Twitter didn't "censor" Trump any more than NFL teams "censored" players by prohibiting kneeling during the anthem. Now, if Twitter got together with other major social media companies and decided to blacklist every conservative user of any prominence, I feel that would rise to censorship, but that's not what happened here. Twitter didn't take away Trump's right to speak. He's just not allowed to use Twitter's platfo
  12. Perhaps this was already pointed out in other threads, but the NFC South is scheduled to play the AFC East next season, which means Brady vs the Pats. Unfortunately, the game will be in Foxboro, which means it can't be scheduled as the Thursday night season-opener (which is typically hosted by the reigning champ).
  13. My wife has set up her home office in our bedroom. Neither of us wanted a TV in there, but she sometimes needs to watch CNBC for work, so we put our game room TV in the bedroom, and I bought a 55-inch LG CX OLED from Costco. (I wanted to get a bigger TV, but I have in-wall speakers in that room and the 65-inch would partially block the speakers.) Man, this is a nice TV. It replaced a Vizio, and I can definitely notice the difference. The PS5 looks great on it, too.
  14. These are pricier than other cords, but I just put them in after upgrading our TV, and they seem to work great. Maybe the existing cords I have also would have worked, but I run the cables through the wall, and I didn't want to have to do it more than once, so I spent the money on the premium cables. https://smile.amazon.com/gp/product/B07S196T4Z/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o01_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1
