  1. Great analysis. Agreed the cap situation in 2023 and 2024 may be a bit tight for the Packers. And, things could work out really well for them. Rodgers is the kind of guy who plays lights out when he has a chip on his shoulder. At least it appears that way. Given the team around him and his drive for another ring I expect him to play really well this year. I also expect him to be traded next year prior to the draft. This will likely leave the Packers with a young QB on a team-friendly rookie deal, several draft assets, and several young players to build around. This arrangement, if Rodgers plays well this year and they trade him next year, may actually benefit the team long term and make the post-Rodgers rebuild shorten.
  2. He was out for at least 6 weeks with a bad case of COVID.
  3. Your team has been successfully entered. QB - Gardner Minshew - JAX/7 - $9 QB - Drew Lock - DEN/8 - $8 QB - Tua Tagovailoa - MIA/11 - $5 QB - Ryan Fitzpatrick - MIA/11 - $4 RB - Josh Jacobs - LV/6 - $26 RB - David Johnson - HOU/8 - $21 RB - Jonathan Taylor - IND/7 - $21 RB - Cam Akers - LAR/9 - $18 WR - Odell Beckham - CLE/9 - $22 WR - Terry McLaurin - WAS/8 - $20 WR - DK Metcalf - SEA/6 - $18 WR - D.J. Chark - JAX/7 - $17 WR - Diontae Johnson - PIT/8 - $13 WR - Marquez Valdes-Scantling - GB/5 - $3 WR - Bryan Edwards - LV/6 - $3 TE - Mike Gesicki - MIA/11 - $12 TE - Chris Herndon - NYJ/11 - $7 TE - Tyler Eifert - JAX/7 - $6 TE - Devin Asiasi - NE/6 - $4 PK - Eddy Pineiro - CHI/11 - $2 PK - Dustin Hopkins - WAS/8 - $2 PK - Stephen Gostkowski - TEN/7 - $2 TD - Green Bay Packers - GB/5 - $3 TD - Atlanta Falcons - ATL/10 - $2 TD - Carolina Panthers - CAR/13 - $2 Total value: 250 I've never been more confident in my lack of confidence of winning.
  4. I'm also rooting for him. Really enjoyed watching him play last year and eager to see what he looks like with a "full" off-season preparing as the unequivocal starter. I could see a scenario in which he plays well, the Jags don't do well overall, and they trade him to a QB-needy team not in position to grab a top QB in the draft.
  5. Yup. Feel's like he's set up to be this year's McLaurin.
  6. Wow. That's really not OK. Sorry to hear you're dealing with that. I really hope it all resolves quickly and safely for you. On a brighter note, welcome to Colorado! I move here from Wisconsin about 25 years ago and, unless I get the opportunity to live in Hawaii, I'm never leaving.
  7. Well, we are about 90% done with the auction and here's where I'm at for a roster QB - Lock, Darnold, Love, Eason, Hurts RB - Fournette, David Johnson, Singeltary, Chase Edmonds, Eno Benjamin,. DeeJay Dallas WR - Sutton, Metcalf, McLaurin, Brandin Cooks, Tee Higgins, Michael Pittman, Gandy-Golden TE - Waller, Sternberger, Kmet, Warring Keeping in mind it's a 14 team league, QB prices were crazy high. Lock and Darnold were actually two of the cheaper starters and Mahomes and Lamar went for double their price. And rookie fever was in full effect. Granted, I got a few rookies but only because the price was right on these guys.....for example, Zach Moss went for the same price as Michael Pittman and guys like Cam Akers went for more than Michael Thomas! I definitely learned a lot....and I get it now why guys like auctions so much. I'd do it again for sure.
  8. Fixed your post. There's a lot of if's here for a guy who seems to be a fairly mediocre talent. IF the Bears offense magically improves and IF the QB play is better (because Trubisky suddenly gets better or Foles wins out and isn't the Jacksonville version)....and IF their defense doesn't decline in points given up....and IF Montgomery gets close to 20 touches a game.....and IF he plays "up to" his best 4 games last season..... Then he *might* hit Mixon 2019 numbers. I agree it's possible. But man, I think there are better RBs to pin all those hopes and dreams on this coming season.
  9. I’m a long time dynasty player about to dip my toes in the auction pool. Never done an auction startup before. It’s a superflex league with 6 pt passing TDs and a slight ppr premium to TEs Would appreciate any tips, tricks, words of wisdom from those of you experienced in auction startups. Thanks in advance!
  10. SF PPR TE premium. Deep rosters. Start 2 RB, 3 WR, 1 TE, 1 regular Flex, 1 SF. I’m competing. Weakest position RB (was looking at starting some combo of CEH, Kerryon/Swift, Guice) Traded away Jeudy (who is likely to be my WR5) Got David Johnson, Van Jefferson, late 2021 1st
  11. Rueben Foster looking for a new home. Does he play ILB? Has some off the field baggage and an injury history but....maybe a flier on a one-year prove it deal? EDIT: My bad - I thought he was out of contract. They just declined his 5th year option, but he's still a Redskin
  12. "- This draft also was the result of Gutekunst making moves to make up for more of his mistakes…" Article is behind a paywall.....can you help me understand what McGinn meant by this?
  13. In a rookie draft for a bestball league right now. It's a SF PPR and, granted, it does offer 0.25 points per carry.... But he fell to 1.11 in this one. AJ Dillon just went at 1.10
  14. Well, that draft went nothing like what I expected. For me there are two thing I've had to process - the Love pick, and the general approach. The Love Pick - I'm a huge ARod fan. Have been ever since they drafted him. In the last 15 years #12 is the only jersey I've ever paid for. Still, I was stoked to see this pick. Watching Love's college tape it seems clear to me he (a) needs time with NFL coaching to develop, and (b) has Mahomes-lite upside. It's rare in the modern NFL for rookie QBs to get the chance to grow before having the full load of pressure to perform dumped on them. And, as much as I love Rodgers, he's on the downside....while he is still a top QB he's been on a slow downward trajectory the past 3-4 seasons. To my eyes, he doesn't look like the level of difference maker he used to be and I do not expect that to magically change in his age 37 and 38 seasons. I don't see them (nor want to see them) moving on from him this year or even next so I, for one, and pumped to see what Love can grow in to with a couple years learning behind one of the game's absolute best. The General Approach - As rounds 2-7 rolled along I got perplexed and even a bit annoyed by the picks. But over the past 24 hours I've been thinking about and one thing keeps coming to mind....the Tennessee Titans. I don't mean to take away from what Tannehill accomplished last year but I do not believe he's a better QB than ARod. Imagine the Titans with Rodgers at QB? This is a team that took it to the Super Bowl champs away from home in the playoffs. I think the Packers are trying to build a squad like the Titans and, after watching Tenn. last year, I'm not upset by it. As someone said above, I don't think the best use of a guy like Rodgers right now is a wide open air-it-out approach. I think he's best served by giving him a big-time running game and a solid defense. Dillon and Jones could form a backfield no one wants to defend. And by investing heavily in the interior line the Packers are doing all they can to maximize the running game for those two backs. With an effective running game like that seeing loaded boxes it frees up Adams to feast on one-on-one coverage....and I think Lazard, Funchess, and possibly even Sternberger are effective enough to make play action a dagger for this offense. On defense we still have the young Smith bros. and Gary will be a year better and healthier. I would have liked to see more investment in the front 7 but I think it can be effective enough, especially if the ball-control run game takes off for the offense. I miss the days of averaging 30 points a game with Rodgers but I don't think that's the immediate future of this team anymore. The more I think about it, the more I like what seems to be this organization's plan. Maximize what you got today, plan for the future too.
  15. There's at least a half dozen WRs left in this class that could be solid players. And while the LB/DL depth isn't fantastic, there are still some quality players out there. Genuinely curious to hear from all sides of the Jordan Love pick coin....if the Pack grab a WR and front 7 help today, does that in any way change your take on the Love pick?
  16. There is also still the possibility of some nice WR landing spots.
  17. Dynasty, PPR My squad is not making the playoffs this year but in position to compete next year. Got a guy who will be #5 or #6 seed in this year's playoffs wanting to give me Calvin Ridley plus "something" for DJ Moore. Everywhere I look I see Ridley ranked higher than Moore in dynasty.....but I'm struggling to pull the trigger on this. Am I crazy? Should I see how much "extra" I can get and just give up Moore for Ridley?
  18. Me too - been trying to sell him for a 2020 1st and getting no love. Seems people don't believe he's the real deal....of course, I'm trying to "sell high" so obviously I'm not sold on him long term either
  19. Agreed as well. Kid just seems to get open. And he's got strong hands and seemingly good-to-great after the catch ability.
  20. This is an example of what has me excited about this kid. In the little bits I've been able to watch (pre-season games and practice highlights) he's got some serious route-running chops. Combined with his size and athleticism there may just be real fire behind this smoke. The box score yesterday looked awful. But my (admittedly subjective) opinion from watching those routes is this kid is already legit and, if his head stays on straight, will only grow and improve.
  21. Your team has been successfully entered. QB - Baker Mayfield - CLE/7 - $19 QB - Lamar Jackson - BAL/8 - $12 RB - Devonta Freeman - ATL/9 - $23 RB - Kerryon Johnson - DET/5 - $23 RB - Jaylen Samuels - PIT/7 - $11 RB - Devin Singletary - BUF/6 - $8 RB - Darwin Thompson - KC/12 - $5 WR - JuJu Smith-Schuster - PIT/7 - $30 WR - Keenan Allen - LAC/12 - $25 WR - Corey Davis - TEN/11 - $15 WR - Courtland Sutton - DEN/10 - $14 WR - Dede Westbrook - JAX/10 - $13 TE - Evan Engram - NYG/11 - $18 TE - Mark Andrews - BAL/8 - $9 TE - Chris Herndon - NYJ/4 - $8 PK - Matt Prater - DET/5 - $4 PK - Steve Hauschka - BUF/6 - $3 PK - Zane Gonzalez - ARI/12 - $3 TD - Carolina Panthers - CAR/7 - $4 TD - New York Jets - NYJ/4 - $3
  22. This is beginning to feel a lot like Belichick Part Deux
  23. I've not watched Jeudy as closely (CU alum, live in Colorado) but Shenault looks really special to me. The offense has not used him to the full extent (tons of short passes, bubble screens, motion stuff) but when he is let loose he looks unstoppable. If he stays healthy I expect him to push Jeudy for the #1 WR in this class.
