  1. Thanks for your response. It actually sways me a little to hear your reasoning. In whole, I may agree that you came out on top, but it would be interesting to look at this a year from now when those rookie picks are either hits or duds. I am not very high on McLaurin being a top WR. His situation got better by nothing happening in the offseason as far as Washington not adding any WRs. The fact that they were rumored to be in the Amari Cooper sweepstakes makes me wonder if they see McLaurin as a bonafide WR1 in their offense. What happens if they add a guy like JuJu next year? But, I am not super high on Harry either. I just think Harry should have better value this year than he does, while McLaurin is kind of pay for what you get. Chark is a good sell, but Dionte is a bit hyped for my taste. It’s just a personal preference. If the masses are right, you’ll be stacked for years. You seem like a guy who knows what he’s doing, and I appreciate the plan you have. I agree that you can compete this year. My general strategy has always been to trade for draft picks, then flip many of those picks for proven players near draft time. I feel like the worst thing that your league mates can do to you in the situation you are in is make you pick each of those draft slots. If you’re good, 50% will hit, which means you just wasted 50% of all that value you traded for. Thats the only issue I have with selling for a lot of picks. On the other hand, making more picks gives you more swings, and more chances to hit on a player.
  2. Because he is much better than Chubb? Again with the “mileage”... show me a study that says this matters. Just because you keep repeating this, doesn’t make it true. In fact, I recall reading on another site that there was a study that said it did not matter at all! The only study I recall reading was one that said with more carries, the incident of concussion increases, which makes sense, however this doesn’t take into account running style among other things. Also, Chubb had a significant injury in college, which there are numerous studies outlining the long term risks of arthritis following these kinds of injuries. Not to mention, how did Chubb do with an active Hunt? Report back to me on that one I’ll take Zeke all day in this scenario, even with his “one strike,” which was minor in the big scheme of things
  3. Between these 2’and your other trade with Harry I feel like you are unnecessarily making this team worse. You could have had Harry, Chark, CEH/Taylor and instead you have 1.06 (Dobbins?), Dionte Johnson, Hines, McLaurin, and a 2021 1st I feel like Mahomes, CEH/Taylor, Chark, Harry is a good base to build around, but that’s just me. For me, you sold 2 WRs with higher ceilings for 2 WRs who are over hyped. If you were taking CEH 1.01 then I do like the plan to sell and maybe get Dobbins at the worst, and a 21 1st. Hope it works out for you
  4. His ADP is wr17 which is about right for me. However the hype is absolutely crazy. I’d break my finger selling if I had someone putting MT value on him
  5. Not the coach, people in here talking about a decline and he doesn’t have it anymore And you are making the mistakes most posters do when someone mentions another name, missing the point. No one said specifically here about those players over Zeke (except you). People are hyped for Chubb, who looks like a 2 down back and is on his 4th? 3rd? Coach in 3 years. Cook who hasn’t stayed healthy one season. Henry who is also a 2 down back. And Ekeler is the hot name this offseason but a COP back. But a true bell cow, roughly the same age, with “mileage” (which show me a study that says mileage matters); no, everyone wants the shiny new toy And coming off COVID? With no symptoms? If anything he’s a bump having already gotten it and is less likely to miss games as those who haven’t gotten it yet. Zeke has done everything right (aside from off the field for a few boneheaded decisions), and stayed healthy at the same time, but for some reason he’s a trendy fade.
  6. I like both of those trades for you. People are down on JJAW for good reason but considering Peterson said Reagor would sit behind Jackson and assume his role eventually, that means JJAW May have first crack at the Jeffery role. Too early to give up on JJAW. He played through a pretty serious injury last year where he couldn’t walk during the week.
  7. Great news for the patriots https://twitter.com/mikereiss/status/1281985567740362753?s=21
  8. LOL guy is 24 and people are throwing dirt on him. Meanwhile everyone can’t get enough of Derrick Henry, Nick Chubb, Ekeler, and Dalvin Cook
  9. I think he has another 2 years of top production and then another year or two of RB2. It all depends what they do with Dak and how long they keep McCarthy. McCarthy tends to script his RBs out of the passing offense, but maybe he has evolved as he claims. You’ll want the RB in this offense regardless
  10. Hi Chad, pulled this one off this week. 12 team 1.0 PPR. Start QB/RB/RB/WR/WR/WR/TE/flex Gave Darrell Henderson, Boston Scott, 2021 3rd (original owner earned 1.01 this last draft) Got: Tee Higgins My trade partner has Akers and Miles Sanders
  11. This is false... he can’t work out because he tested positive and has to stay inside... and he doesn’t have a home gym. Love the spin by this tweet for taking a quote completely out of context to fit a narrative
  12. A lot of people chasing the shiny object but are missing on this guy. They will be kicking themselves in a year or two
  13. 12 team PPR Gave Henderson, Scott, and a 2020 3rd (the 3rds original owner had 1.01 this year) Got Higgins my trade partner owns Akers and Sanders
  14. Value of Boston Scott- where do people have him in relation to a guy like Dawson Knox?
  15. There were some rankings that were completely outdated. Player is named out on Monday but still on rankings until later in the week. I recall a thread discussing how Dalvin Cook could be the 5th or 6th RB for the week but was declared out Monday or Sunday evening for the following week. The specific article I am referencing late is the WW report. If it says it’s out on Tuesday, sure technically you are correct when it goes live on the site with a few hours left in Tuesday... I guess I would expect things to be done and on the site when most people are still awake, but maybe whoever writes or publishes operates one a western time zone or Hawaii or something. I recall seeing threads of people complaining of waivers processing at midnight and 9 or 10pm still not having the article. Just come into the forums on a Tuesday evening sometime after week 10 and you’re bound to see one thread. Since I can’t find an example in the search function will digress. It’s not worth any more of my time to look. As far as who has said they were all on time and shrugged it off, I went back looking at threads and couldn’t find it an example. I won’t put words in anyone’s mouths so I’ll retract that for now
  16. Who else did you get? Some decent lotto picks on that list but as others have said, they are lotto picks
  17. Been with FBG since it was cheatsheets. The issue I’ve seen is FBG was started in the redraft days and hasn’t evolved as quickly or as much as other sites. I’m not renewing this year as I have found better value for what I need at other sites for the same or similar cost. The big jump to daily was a negative but, as Just Win said, I hope the revenue offset the negatives. IDP and Dynasty are afterthoughts, which is the biggest issue Lineup Dominator was okay to use but refreshing the synch was a pretty big pain. It got to the point where I had to refresh every league each time I logged in (why can’t this be automatic?) and then I’d have to click to a different page and back to my rosters to see the new synched rosters. Seemed clunky so I stopped using it midway through the year. Especially when you have multiple leagues, this was a big pain, and again it seems like this could have been an automatic feature to synch up during the loading/opening process. Content can be tardy. There were numerous times the WW report was out late and came out only just prior to waivers running. That seems to be a consistent issue that always gets a shrug from FBGs and a “things are always out at the same time every week” response, but it happens often enough for threads to be created. This always seems to happen around week 9 or 10. I can see the negatives of abandoning the classic draft dominator in favor of an app. It took a learning curve but I like it better than the desktop version. Now that I am strictly dynasty, this feature does not interest me. It would be nice if FBGs came out with a dynasty start up version and one for rookie drafts. Rookie drafts can’t be too hard especially with how easy it is to import rosters. But then that would mean hiring staff with a focus on dynasty. The contest is probably enough to keep most forum people coming back every year. For me, as a dynasty player, the offseason content is lacking, which goes back to the dynasty focus being minimal. A podcast is nice, but it would be better if it were its own podcast so I didn’t have to sift through the other episodes that I don’t find too beneficial. Hinderlys chart is okay but it is updated monthly, and values can change at a faster pace than 4 weeks. Just seems like dynasty players are being thrown enough crumbs to keep them coming back for the contest.
  18. MCL is commonly injured with an ACL injury. Not concerned for a WR. If he were a RB I’d be worried
