  1. Yes, Elliot should very much be considered as the 1.01 in redraft. 
     

    Look at this as a potential 2 game suspension (most likely scenario) for both CMC and Barkley. If they are going into the season with that impending at any given time, similar to Zeke in 2018, then how much would you drop them in your rankings? 
     

    They could catch it during the fantasy playoffs or even right before. Absolutely, it’s a huge risk that doesn’t exist with Zeke

    It's not like they didn't try. It just didn't catch on so i guess people weren't starved enough for it. 

    I guess I missed them trying. With a void in major tv sports coverage, I would have thought they would have struck a temporary deal and gotten on some major networks. At the same time I can’t remember the last time I looked at what was on ESPN so it’s possible I missed it because of that.

  3. Curious what others may think-

    While the world of sports was put on hold with COVID, did E-Sports miss an opportunity to take a bigger piece of the pie? 

    Many people were so starved for sports they found themselves watching anything they could that resembled competitive sports

    I realize E-Sports and watching gamers isn’t for everyone, but neither is soccer or golf and plenty of people watched that when they could. 
     

    I feel like there was a potential opportunity missed to thrust E-Sports into the spotlight and gain some more viewers/fans. I’m certainly not an avid E-Sports guy; I’ve never watched a “game” or whatever it’s called, but I would have during this sports shut down. What say you?

    Throw in unemployment compensation plus the extra stimulus added to it....they might be able to feed their immediate family the basics, but who wants to live like that?  

    Many of these guys live within their means, which 150k will not support

    I don’t make NFL money, but if I had to cut to 150k for the year I would hurt substantially, and I live below my means (no WiFi until this last spring (virtual learning), smart phone only 3 years ago, I drive an old car). 
    Higher salary just means higher bills.

    That doesn’t concern me. My point is I feel like I am looking at a great QB. But I won’t keep trying to change minds. I just want folks to see with both eyes open. 🤓

    Too many people wrote him off early and are in take Lock (or don’t take Lock in this case). He had a very promising rookie year and had grown tremendously. If that growth arc continues, then we really are potentially seeing a great QB blossoming. He has a competitive edge. He’s got it between the ears. He’s a hard worker. It all shows and he’s got a fantastic supporting cast to boot

    Put me down as saying I do not care one iota about speed score, athletic score, or any of that kind of stuff.  I actually find it laughable people think they unlocked some kind of cheat code, that a guy like Brett Veach would be so dunce and non-analytical that he'd be taking an "outlier" RB in round one and if he'd only used some living room GM's scores.....

    And please don't confuse what I'm saying as athletic testing does not matter. It does, but needs to be looking at more then just a basic "score". It's more of a process of marrying what you see on video with the athletic testing scores.

     

    Draft capital matters the most in these things, but we can’t just ignore those measurable either. 
    However, the two bolded areas are contradictory... if you don’t care one iota then you are saying they don’t matter. If it does matter and needs to be looked at as part of a process, then you care more than one iota. 
    Athletic scores have been shown to have a great correlation with NFL/fantasy success. They should matter. It isn’t the be all end all, but if you want to minimize wasted draft picks, you’ll do better if you stick to the “cheat code” than if you don’t. 
     

    GMs miss all the time on their picks, and many times an armchair GMs had it right. GMs just get paid while making their mistakes

    Curious how people view this deal.  In a vacuum it's pretty imbalanced, but context makes it closer I imagine.  This guy has been trying to get rid of Kamara all off-season.  

    10 team 2QB 3WR 2RB 2TE 2Flex .5ppr

    Team A got: Alvin Kamara - Now owns Barkley, Zeke, M. Sanders, DJ, and Kamara at RB (definitely a top contender)

    Team B got: 1.07, 2.09, 2021 3rd, 4th, 2022 4th, Chase Edmonds, Damien Harris, Kahale Warring

    Team B is basically the worst possible team you can imagine who is a new owner taking it over.  His best player is probably either Josh Allen, Mike Williams, or Diontae Johnson.  Literally has nothing else of value on that entire team. 

    Personally I don't think it's that bad considering how many dart throws this team needs and there is SOME value here, but the value is definitely with the person getting Kamara.  But there is a potential Kamara contract problem and Brees retirement on the horizon that could nuke his future value.  

    Ooff...

    I always feel like if you have to look at a trade from multiple angles to try and make it look not that bad, it’s a bad trade. Too much has to go right for the package side to make this deal worth it. There has to be SOMEONE who would have given a better deal... maybe not.

    16 team .5 RB/1 WR/1.5 TE ppr, WR/TE started as recievers, no mandatory TE slot. 

    I gave: Aaron Jones, Jamaal Williams, Blake Jarwin.

    I got: Mark Andrews, RGIII, 2021 1st. 

    I am getting the sell high vibe on Jones and got Barkley in the offseason. Got RGIII as a throw-in as I have L-Jax so some COVID short term insurance. 

    We can start 1-3 RB and 3-5 WR/TE. Still have Thomas, Hopkins, Diggs and Hilton as starters. 

    I was in board until I saw no TE required. 
     

    1.5 for TE doesn’t move the needle THAT much for me for TEs. 
     

    There is some obvious TD regression coming for Jones, but a lot of people count him out of GB in 2021, but I just don’t see it. It’s Jamaal Williams who will be gone; I really think they resign Jones.

     

    I think this deal was a pretty good one, and a good sell of Jones if you didn’t add Jarwin. I think he tips the scale here in about the value of a 2021 2nd. At least that’s what my trusty calc says

    I'll take what Jeudy did against SEC dbs over Lock's accomplishments. There is something to be said for visual evidence. 

    You’re suggesting we can hype based off SEC college resumes but we shouldn’t hype based off actual NFL action? 
    You had a lot of really good counter arguments available to you, but you’re sticking with that one? 
     

    I guess this kind of reasoning, and SEC bias, is what leads one to say Snell will be better than Sanders

    A guy is only worth what the maximum anyone is willing to pay for him.

    in this case... yikes

    No he didn't. He said he believed it after you asked him if he believed it. You need to stop.

    the FACT is that younger & healthier people (like athlete Freddy Freeman) are getting it more severely.

     

    @barackdhouse do you think having a high fever is equivalent of a severe reaction to any disease?
