  1. Just going to add my write up for what I wanted my team to be and how I felt like it went. I am team "L" from NE Revival's tweet. We had a video meeting talking about a lot of the early round format so I won't revisit that. But my strategy basically came down to RB's/youth/upside in the early rounds. I wanted a few "mainstays" that gave me positional advantage but it didn't quite go my way, so I decided to load up on RB early and hope that's enough. I knew I wanted WR's in the mid/late rounds so I was banking on that. We got to the 6th round and I had 6 or so WR's I was targeting. Felt trading down was fine and left the 6th for a future 1st and a 15th. Ended up still getting one of my guys in the 7th. That happened a good bit in this draft, I wanted a guy or two, traded down a few spots and usually still got my guy. That's a sign I'm higher on someone than the entire league, which odds are I'm wrong ha. Anyways I went for it and picked up future picks along with a very young team. As for the rounds 8-9 since TE didn't go my way I felt the need to swing. There were a few TE's I really like there. Tonyan for TD upside or a larger role on offense could be huge. Trautman the same since there's only 2 other pass catchers worth worrying about there and Jameis could be chucking it around. 10-13 was my sweet spot for high upside hopefuls. So I filled my holes there and took more guys I love. Gabriel Davis, Elijah Mitchell, Bryan Edwards, and Denzel Mims. I'm not as high on Mims anymore, but he still has that #1 upside. I like Mitchell more than Sermon and I'll take the discount in ADP. Edwards is the #1 and that was a guy I NEEDED to have from last year. After those picks I basically chose my personal favorites from different recent draft classes. If you've been on these forums a while you know who almost all my WR picks were. Basically guy's that I had been pounding the table for. Either starting their thread or being the guy who posted the most about them. Bryan Edwards, Denzel Mims, PRESTON WILLIAMS (obviously, I wrote his fan club intro), Michael Gallup, Gabriel Davis and Tee Higgins. I felt youth was essential (as I always do in startups), but upside was even more important. In a year, I feel all of them could/will be #1's on offenses or at worst the 1b. They were my favorite prospects from the past 2-3 years so I decided this team was going to be that. A group of my favorites and see where the chips fall. After my RB, RB, RB start, I enjoyed the draft so much because it was almost always a guy I was targeting was who I was picking. There were only a few cases that a guy I was planning on didn't make it to me. Waddle in the 6th, which lead to the trade down. Bateman in the 7th (pivoted to Gallup), Zack Moss in the 8th (went to TE instead which worked out well), Darrell Henderson/Jamaal Williams was the target in 11 but they went just before and so I started my favorite player run. Overall I'm very happy with the draft, and I enjoyed it a lot due to the fact that value was hard to come by. And the fact that I got lots of players I planted my flag on, it's very much a fan team. I know I'm higher on most of them than probably the whole league so future value might be completely off. But it was fun. I've got two future 1sts (including my own), two future 2nds, and three 3rd's. I'm happy with that capital for the future and the young hopeful team I've assembled.
  2. Guess I'm trading all my Claypool's/Jeudy's for Gallups/1sts
  3. Rank these WR's: Gallup, Waddle, Claypool, Sutton, Jeudy, Chark, Bateman I have clear favorites of this group, but I've seen some wildly high on the others. Curious what everyone else thinks.
  4. Totally on board with Waddle being the most exciting, Chase was a bit underwhelming too but still very good. Overall this class looks to provide more FF depth than actual elite studs. And there's caution in the wind for most of these prospects. The only write up I disagree with here is the Bateman one. For Waddle/Chase it's more of a "how they win" type of profile instead of an complete all around player. With Bateman though he arguably has the highest ceiling because he does do everything. I wouldn't call him a technician but he is detail oriented although unrefined as of now. There's a ton to like about him and because of college production and a more all around skillset, I'd easily put him ahead of Moore and Toney on this list. Safer floor and higher ceiling.
  5. FFPC I gave up: Antonio Gibson and Deebo Samuel I got: Dak Prescott and Travis Etienne I have Baker/Fields as QB's, but this allows me to cut Baker and Deebo was my Wr6 so figured I could give him up easily. This puts my team over the top with the only piece I was missing, a stud QB. Now my likely starting lineup is something like this, with 4 good depth pieces for bye weeks. Just have to pick the right one. Prescott J. Taylor, M. Sanders, C. Akers AJ Brown, Godwin, Lamb Kittle Also have Javonte and Etienne as RB depth, and Sutton and Bateman was WR depth.
  6. 2 FFPC's that finished up https://myffpc.com/DraftBoard.aspx?ltuid=61C-0FAEDCFB484D https://myffpc.com/DraftBoard.aspx?ltuid=BCF-8866991C61DF
  7. After a startup, realize my team isn't near good enough so I traded some pieces away for future picks. I could actually still be decent if my breakout players hit. The way I see it is picks grow in value, and allow more flexibility. If I find myself in the hunt I can trade them away to rebuilders and compete. But here's the deals: 12 team 1QB 2RB 2WR 1TE 3Flex 1SF (6 pts all TD's, full PPR, 2pt PPR TE) I gave up Josh Jacobs and Deebo Samuel I got 2022 1st, 2023 1st and Darrynton Evans I gave up Baker Mayfield I got 2022 2nd, 2023 1st, Donovan Peoples Jones I now have 1.03, 1.04 this year, and 3 1sts and 2 2nds in 2022 and 2023
  8. 166 pounds moves quicker/easier than 200 pounds, and 4 years of refining his craft (although he's refined it well) of course he's ahead of Bateman.
  9. Talent wise it's Bateman easily for me. Smith is only talented because he's light and played 4 years. Bateman is way more impressive, just compare 2018 of each and 2019 of each. Bateman hands down.
  10. My 2nd screen is almost always on NFL Network so that's where it stays
  11. Someone asked about Josh Jacobs earlier and I just saw a trade go down in 1 of my leagues, I traded him away in one of my other leagues, and I got an insulting offer in another. Anyways: The completed deal was 1.03 for Josh Jacobs. I was a bit surprised by this price actually, but I like it for both. Good cash out, and possibly a buy "cheap" depending on what he does his next few years The one I traded him away for was Jacobs/Tonyan/Chark - for - Miles Sanders/OBJ. Not too thrilled with it after a few days but I like Miles a lot so figured what the heck. Insulting offer was Kendrick Bourne/Gaskin for Jacobs but he's new to dynasty so I'll give him a break. Just talked it out a bit after that and said I was still high on Jacobs so it doesn't meet my mark for a close offer.
  12. I started this thread 2 months ago... ha
  13. FFPC I gave up: Josh Jacobs, Robert Tonyan, DJ Chark I got: Miles Sanders, OBJ
  14. Profile wise I was looking at breakout, YPC, and dominator. Engram is the far superior prospect. But they aren't prospects anymore. Engram has failed to live up to his draft slot, but he's shown glimpses of absolute dominance. Irv hasn't really had that chance yet. This is probably the last year for Engram to make a case as a top option so I understand people getting hesitant. The majority (or all) of you seem to viewing Engram as that last leg, while the arrow is only pointing up for Smith. I'm betting on the better player, everyone else seems to be betting on the youth and ceiling. Random number time to explain my point: One guy has 20% of optimism, the other has 80% but that 20% of bright light coming through is based on an outstanding profile. The guy with 80% optimism is through rose colored glasses hoping and praying he becomes something, but it isn't based on profile. It's based on either opportunity and age. I don't see a good enough ceiling even if Irv Smith hits.
  15. Engram has also got 115 targets his rookie year, averages over 110 targets in full seasons (89 average for 4 total seasons). Health has been his issue, and so has an overall bad Giants team, but there's hope glimmering through. I think people are forgetting TE takes a while to learn, and Engram is entering his prime years now. I'd much rather take a shot on Engram who has the way better profile, better size, has developed into a blocker, plays all downs, and is used by his QB a lot.
  16. Hmmm I'm the outlier here I guess. I don't see the appeal in Irv Smith other than possibly volume, and Daniel Jones loves his TE, the other pieces be damned.
  17. I absolutely wasn't selling, and I was rather insulted by the offer. Engram is a prime buy low, Irv is a clear sell high to me. Obviously my "trade partner" doesn't know that, but still. I couldn't imagine people thinking Irv is that high.
  18. Someone help me out. Why on earth would Irv Smith be valued more than Evan Engram other than an age narrative? I'm not totally missing something here am I? Woke up today with an Irv Smith for my Engram and 1.12 offer and even though it's TE prem, I can't imagine a scenario that would even put the 2 in the same stratosphere in terms of value.
  19. He's my #17 ranked player right now in PPR, #21 in SF. I expect that to stay after 4th round draft capital or better.
  20. He's a 2nd or 3rd round rookie pick, I wouldn't say late.
  21. Unofficial 4.58 Feels underwhelming but not a death sentence. Hopefully officially it's slightly better though. Speed was never his game, so I'm still a huge fan of his.
