  1. I dunno. In your original assessment—you put him where you did with your justification being one game with perfect game flow—but you didn’t mention the insane flukey nature of a game where the dude dropped 3 tds. Also—the same perfect game flow rationale was not used in ranking Andrews so high. Brown has having a great year before the perfect game flow game. Andrews was a big disappointment before that—I know because I have both Andrews and Brown on one of my teams. As far as I can see—the only remotely effective running game the Ravens have shown this season was that of Lamars. Freeman looked decent catching balls out of the backfield—but none of their running backs looked good enough to make me believe that they are going to go back to being a team whose offense is primarily through the run. I also don’t think they will want Lamar running the ball 15-20x a game. That’s just too risky. I don’t disagree that Browns production can decline —but even with that—I think ranking him as a wr3 moving forward is still pretty crazy.
  2. Great stuff—but you are waaaay too low on Hollywood brown in my opinion. He also had a very flukey game where he dropped 3 tds. To rank him as a wr3 (in 12 team leagues) the rest of the way is borderline laughable imo.
  3. He’s played 20 games with the Cardinals and Kyler Murray. He has 185 targets in those 20 games. That’s over 9 targets a game. If we want to only look at his last 4 games and not take into account basically the rest of his career—and make expectations based on that—then you are correct—he hasn’t been a target monster.
  4. Half point ppr flex spot. Pick 1 AJ green Damien Harris Zach Moss—word is that there will be moderate to heavy rain throughout the game.
  5. Put me in the minority—-but there is like two occasions when Deandre Hopkins should be benched—when he’s on bye week or when he’s injured. The Cardinals average something like 35 points a game and he’s a target monster. I’m not sure how you could ever bench him if he’s healthy
  6. No. I have more important things to be bothered about. The man is guilty of bad humor—which we’ve all been guilty of in our lifetimes. With that said—I wouldn’t be surprised if he’s forced to make an apology or if there is a wave of people pushing to cancel him.
  7. I appreciate this post. I think I’m basically the prime example of what you describe. I have no choice but to start Mahomes. However—I do have a choice between starting AJ Green, Damien Harris and Zach Moss in one of my flex spots—which definitely falls in your “ancillary” pieces. I’ll probably go with Harris
  8. Going with the Raiders defense against the Bears. Didn’t like any of the other options available in my league. My confidence level is really low. Even with a potentially favorable matchup—it doesn’t feel good to be betting on the Raiders defense. Uggh.
  9. Monkey killing monkey killing monkey over pieces of the ground silly monkeys give them thumbs, they make a club to beat their brother down how they’ve survived so misguided is a mystery repugnant is a creature who would squander the ability to lift an eye to heaven, conscious of his fleeting time here.
  10. He wouldn’t necessarily even need a Singletary injury for that to happen. Look at the Bills upcoming schedule after the Chiefs game this week. Titans, dolphins, Jaguars, Jets, Colts. The Bills should be winning a lot of these games—and if they are winning—they will want to utilize the run game to run down the clock. I think their schedule dictates that there will be a significant amount of games where they will want to feature the run.
  11. Fair points—but look at the trajectory of this season. He missed game 1. Game 2–8 carries and 2 targets, game 3-13 carries and 3 targets, game 4–14 carries and a target. Just seems to me that he’s a guy who is starting to get more touches than what his career averages indicate. We’ll have to wait and see—but I might have to make a trade offer on him in my league if he can be had for relatively cheap. I think he’s a good bet to finish as a top 15-20 fantasy rb rest of season if he can stay healthy
  12. I love the thought and effort going into making these lists. I very much appreciate it. A few things that I disagree with—but I also understand that everybody has different opinions. Swift is too high in my opinion. On a team that probably won’t provide too many scoring opportunities—and he also happens to have a talented back in Jamal Williams playing behind him. Let’s not forget that Williams is also capable of catching passes. Zach Moss is criminally low in my opinion. High power offense with lots of scoring opportunities. While he does have a talented back in Singletary to share opportunities with—they are completely different backs with completely different styles. Much of the value of running backs in fantasy is td dependent and I trust Moss to get more td’s than Singletary. In regards to qbs—Mahomes should be number 1 imo. I have Mahomes in my redraft league—and I would not consider trading him away for the guys you have ahead of him—especially Lam Jack (who I’m a huge fan of). While I like Josh Allen a lot—do you think that he’ll be playing meaningful football the last 2-3 weeks of the season when it could be the fantasy playoffs/finals? Look at the Bills division.
  13. Nah—trust me—I don’t deserve to do any victory laps. Too early in the season to establish if he ends up supporting my thoughts on him. Secondly—-the rest of my team basically inhibits me from doing any victory laps of any sort. Lol. My first season ever doing a 2 qb league with an auction drafting format and I was grossly unprepared. I didnt realize how big a difference the dynamics of an auction format are versus the dynamics of a snake draft.
  14. Oh—I totally agree—and I don’t think he’ll get too many more rushing td’s. My expectation was that he’d be a solid lower second tier qb candidate to put up a decent amount of 225-250 yard and two passing td’s games. The first few weeks—he’s done better than that—but I just view those games as being pleasant surprises. If he can consistently get anything close to what I originally expected him to do—I’d be completely thrilled.
  15. I live in Huntington Beach. I don’t know if you’ve seen the news lately—but on Saturday night—there was reports of a giant oil spill off our coast (literally a 5 minute walk from where i live) and crude oil and dead animals were washing up on shore and going into our wetlands. Literally yesterday—the tv stations were giving live updates of the situation—so it’s very possible that the tribute occurred while the stations where I live were doing “breaking reports”. That’s why I appreciate you actually answering my question instead of jumping to the conclusion that I was just looking for something to complain about.
  16. I asked if they they did a video tribute because either they didn’t do one or I missed it. The other poster was nice enough to answer my genuine question kindly. Any reason why you chose to answer rudely or is that just part of your personality? And people ask me why I don’t spend as much time on these boards anymore. Enjoy your day.
  17. Thanks—I must have missed seeing that. I stand corrected.
  18. I did exactly this in my 2qb league—and so far so good. While I wouldn’t be surprised to see some regression from Darnold as his fantasy production has been great so far—the negativity towards him going into the season allowed me to pay up for Mahomes and get Darnold for cheap as my second qb. So far it’s worked well—but we’ll see if it ended up being a sound strategy as the year progresses.
  19. I wasn’t aware of that—so that’s fair—but did they do any sort of video tribute before the game for him? Even the Celtics did one for Kyrie and he hardly played there. I just felt as though the Pats could have done a little more to show some sort of appreciation for his past there. Anyhow—just my 2 cents.
  20. I only came to comment that I felt that the Patriots barely pausing the game to acknowledge Brady becoming the all time leader in passing yards was pretty dismissive and disgraceful. Regardless of Tom now being on a different team at this point in his career—he did enough for that fanbase and that organization to have deserved a better ceremony/acknowledgement of that moment. It was pretty pathetic imo.
  21. Thank you to the OP for posting this. I’ve always assumed that I was a pure insomniac—but I’m not going to lie. Some of what is in that article seems to describe some aspects of what I’ve been battling through for a while. Reading this might help me change my approach to trying to solve my sleep deprivation problem.
  22. Get well soon Joe!! RIP to Mike Tagliere. Unbelievably tragic.
  23. Part of the appeal and values of crypto is that it can be used as a means of conducting commerce—the same way that money is. However—for it to be exchanged or goods or services—-both power and internet connections are ready. Any situation where these are not available could be viewed as “tough” for it. Power outages, bad weather, floods..etc. The fact that it’s usability can be completely impaired when it might be needed the most—is definitely one of the downsides to crypto.
  24. https://forums.footballguys.com/topic/673466-stock-thread/?do=findComment&comment=22803183 Check the link above and look at the date. I did my own research and even before the theory you mention started gaining traction—I posted it. Several weeks before I posted this in the stock thread—I pm’d @fantasycurse42 and @chet about the details of my findings—as we were discussing its ramifications about a particular stock. There is far more evidence supporting a lab leak hypotheses versus the virus evolving naturally. If the virus evolved naturally—there should be a population of people that can be tracked down to have gotten the virus first. The evidence (which much of it China destroyed or took down from the database) indicates that scientists from the lab were among the first people to have gotten it. Unless people are naive enough to believe that the very virus that they were messing with happened to naturally mutate in the lab that they were working—the unaided “natural” evolution theory does not add up. The scientific community and multiple governments are incentivized to discredit the lab leak hypotheses because the Wuhan lab did feature international scientists—they all weren’t just Chinese. Secondly—the world of scientific research is greatly propelled and reliant on funding/grants. If one of the deadliest diseases/events on our planet was found to be a result of a scientific mistake—many people/entities would think twice before putting a lot of money into science again.
  25. Even as a believer in crypto—There is no way of predicting the regulatory future of crypto. Secondly—crypto requires an internet connection and electricity to use it—which vastly limits its ability to be used in tough situations. Thirdly—I’m not proposing that anybody gets out of crypto and equities and alternatively invest in precious metals. I’m recommending that people that own crypto, equities and other investments mix precious metals into their basket of investments as a way of balancing them. The fact that they haven’t gone up nearly as much as the others have in a massively inflationary environment is one of the main reasons why I think they have more runway to go up.
