  1. Rams will add someone after cut downs, but it will mainly be for depth and not to directly compete for starting job. It’s Hendo’s until he wears down.
  2. Haskins is a very good change-of-pace QB for the Steelers, and his mobility better suits the weaknesses in the O-Line. Haskins should be the backup.
  3. Thank you for sharing your experiences with conditional draft picks. Seems like the league sites don’t directly support this approach, but some commissioners go the extra mile to try and make it work. Overall, it seems preferable to balance a trade in other ways (swapping additional players).
  4. If so, what conditions do you place on the draft pick? For Example: 2nd Rounder if PLAYER X totals < 200 points by end of season; 1st Rounder if > 200 points (just curious)
  5. 7 spots left. curious about slow auction? Watch one in progress and see how it unfolds: https://www.couchmanagers.com/auctions/?auction_id=292
  6. https://www.leaguesafe.com/classifieds/listing/3981929 Redraft league with large lineup (QB,RB,RB,WR,WR,TE,FLEX,FLEX,SuperFLEX,K,DEF) and PPR scoring. Using slow auction (18 hrs/pick) on couchmanagers.com to accommodate all owners - will start 24-48 hours after league is full (and paid)... it will take about ~14 days to complete, but worth the wait. Looking for an interactive experience with owners who are active and contribute to the discussions and message board. Let your Fantasy Freak Flag Fly! LEAGUE SETTINGS & RULES https://fantasy.espn.com/football/league?leagueId=440216281 Scoring is typical PPR, with three divisions. Home field advantage points (+5) in playoffs to reward teams with good seasons. Good-natured trash-talking is accepted, but slurs and bigotry will not be tolerated. PAYOUT INFORMATION First place: $400, Second Place: $200, Third Place: $120
  7. Me too. If six is the benchmark, then Gase should have gotten four more years to determine if he was good for the Jets.
  8. I’m looking for alternatives to the PIT defense for the first time all season. I think PIT will play better against a less mobile QB in Rivers, but I just don’t trust the PIT offense protecting the ball. Right now I am leaning towards CAR defense which put a lot of pressure on Rodgers last week and had an extra day to prepare for WFT. I don’t see a lot of people talking about CAR, but I like their chances over HOU and LAC.
  9. The Steelers are getting a lot of practice running a red zone offense, because they are playing a red zone defense (who is only protecting 10-20 yards) all game long. The run game won’t improve without spreading the defense. None of this gets fixed without Ben getting healthy and/or finding a fountain of youth. It’s time to sit him the last two weeks and roll the dice that he’s a little rusty come playoff time.
  10. Crisis averted for my fantasy football team, but I can no longer count on Ben, Ebron, and PIT D for next week’s superbowl. Need other options. Meanwhile the Steelers crisis is in full effect. They are running out of time to get healthy and figure things out.
  11. I’m getting ready to suffer the baddest of beats.... i was up 2 points with Ben, Ebon, and PIT D, facing only Juju... never thought it would swing this way.
  12. Interesting post, and I support it. On a similar topic... In the back of my mind I’ve been pondering to need for the NFL to stop allowing the trade of players. I understand that the teams are only trading contracts, but it never comes across that way in the media. I would still support the NFL to continue allowing the trade of draft picks to allow teams to move up in the draft. I know that most NFL fans don’t want to see the game changed (change is difficult), but I would support changing the game in this way.
  13. I have a bye this week and need a kicker for Week 15 (and hopefully 16). Succop is my target to pickup off waivers. If I can’t get him, I might stick with Gano as long as Daniel Jones returns healthy by then.
  14. I really hope Dupree isn’t too badly hurt, but I’m guessing he’s missing the next two games at least.
  15. I was happy with Engram’s performance, but I am concerned that McCoy may not be able to get the ball to him. Without Jones, I think Engram has peaked for this season, and it goes downhill from here.
  16. I’ve already cut Tucker and replaced him with Gano. I’ve benched Steelers D, Ebron, and Roth. I don’t have better options, but I still have a winnable matchup with the replacements. I just don’t have a good feeling that the game will be played, and I don’t have a pivot options for MNF. As a calculated risk, I might play Steelers D. The Boom potential is big, and getting a zero there wouldn’t be devastating.
