  1. Alex Collins is a super-cheap late round RB flyer and all he has to do ensure that value is work hard (like he always has) and let Penny continue to suck or be injured as he has done his entire NFL "career".
  2. Other than being a HOF QB, and a competent Jeopardy host, Rodgers is a darn good golfer with a clutch putter.
  3. How discerning of you. One could argue: Chase, Waddle, Smith, Moore, Moore, Bateman, Toney, plus a few sleepers like Nico and Eskridge. Speaking of talent, Bateman was outproduced by lowly 5th rounder Tyler Johnson in 2019.
  4. I find it interesting to hear all of the nuanced arguments about how the Ravens "could throw more" and "if X happens, then maybe they improve to the 25th lowest passing team in the NFL". Occam's Razor and experience tells me it is much easier to simply cross Bateman off my rookie dynasty WR list due to landing on the lowest-volume passing attack and move on to the 5-7 other rookie WRs that have talent, yet don't have this issue. Ahh, that was easy.
  5. FWIW, DynastyTradeCalculator.com has it: Claypool - 18.5 Jeudy - 17.8 Sutton - 17.4 Waddle - 16.6 Chark - 15.0 Bateman - 14.0 and Gallup - 10.4
  6. The Rams are offering a 2027 1st.
  7. FFPC drafts include a lot of free agents, due to cutting to 16 players. Guys like Mike Davis (early) and Jared Cook (1.5 PPR) and QBs like Matt Ryan are available.
  8. This point makes a lot of sense and if you made it a personal rule (I rarely draft 4th+ round WRs, but love 2nd-3rd round WRs), I would not blame you. In this case, I am willing to consider that: 1. The GM said he would have taken Carter at 66 had they not traded the pick. So, the Jets had him valued as a 2nd rounder. 2. The depth chart above/around him is inarguably terrible. Tevin Coleman is garbage and he is the literal top-of-the-heap. 3. He was pick 107, the 2nd pick of round four. If the Jets had traded up 4 spots into round three, would Carter now be "acceptable" to pick, since he was a 3rd rounder and 3rd round RBs have higher success rates? While true, seems a tad silly to be so cut-and-dried on this. Just like any rule, when you make an exception, when do you stop? 4. He averaged 8 yards per carry in 2020 and 6.6 in his career. 5. Played opposite another NFL-caliber RB (Javonte Williams) yet still commanded exactly 50% of the touches. But if you consider all factors, and if you had to bet on who had the most PPR points at RB on the Jets in 2021, what are Carter's odds? Is he the fav? If not, what about in 2022? Beyond the "2022 three-down-back-top-50 pick concept", who beats out Carter going forward? And why would the GM invest a top 50 pick in RB in 2022 when he though he got one in 2021? It is up to Carter to fail here. Doubtful that he does and his price is cheap considering all of the above, IMO.
  9. The key is subduing your emotions about the person you plan to kill. (Otherwise, who gives a #### about wait times?)
  10. Easy. Buy Ethereum. Game, set, match.
  11. Ahh yes, Ron Wolf "lucked" into trading for Favre, and Ted Thompson "lucked" into making the ballsy pick of Rodgers when Favre was still a top QB. What a ridiculous thing to say. Those were both fantastic decisions by bold, smart GMs that turned out unbelievably well for the organization.
  12. Slayton's ADP in FFPC Best Ball over the past 5 days is WR76 and pick 273. I am not sure how you define "meh" but FFPC drafters seemed to have laid it out pretty well.
  13. NYG front office probably liked Toney as a top 10-12 pick, but knew he was viewed lower by the NFL/consensus, so felt comfortable trading down. They have injury-prone but talented Golladay and a whole lot of "meh" in Shepard and Slayton, so he will get a chance. He is worth taking a look at before just dismissing him due to pre-draft biases.
  14. Highly valued insight and analysis per your typical post. Which Body Type Are You?
  15. I respectfully disagree with you. Smith has an ecto/meso-morphic bodytype. Meaning he is naturally lean and quite muscular for his lean size. He can't simply take a bunch of protein shakes or drink wine and eat Cheez-Its (like I do) and add 20 lbs like a typical endomorphic white European-lineage genetic type. The book The Sports Gene, describes this in detail.
  16. My name is Dave Gerczak, co-founder of FFPC. I first met with Joe and David back in 2010 at an FSTA (Fantasy Sports Trade Association) trade show. We (along with my business partner Alex Kaganovsky) discussed doing a joint venture mid-stakes contest to be called the Footballguys Players Championship. It was launched in 2010 with a modest $50K grand prize and 1200 team cap. Over the past 10 years, the contest has grown and so has our mutual friendship. I have gotten to know David and Joe much better, meeting with both dozens of times. I could not speak more highly of both David and Joe, both as businesspeople but moreso as human beings. They have been a pleasure to work with at 95% of the time, and the other 5% was probably mine or Alex' fault. . Both Alex and I wish David the best and will miss working with him, whether it is his passion about sending league winner medals to everyone (which is a pain but sort of worth it, lol) or debating the flattening of the $3 million+ current prize pool for the Footballguys Players Championship. We love and respect David and he will be greatly missed. He says he is coming to Vegas in future years which will be great as it will be much more fun and chill for him. We can have more Colossal Stone Crab or Madagascar Shrimp at Joe's in Caesars, and you are buying. Best of luck, Dodds, you've earned it! We (FFPC) look forward to our future partnership with Joe Bryant and the excellent Footballguys team, as well as their dedication to carrying the FBG flag for decades to come. David leaves this organization in excellent shape and we look forward to their continued ability to provide a superb product day after day and week after week.
  17. From Chad's Twitter handle: 19 X full season national champ. including FFPC main, NFFC primetimeX2, FFWC main, NFBC primetime, RTFFCX3, NFBC Online, WCOFB, CDM bases, golf, nascar x2
  18. The answer to the original question: Who is the best ff player that you have ever encountered? (meaning owners). There is clearly one and only one answer to this question. Chad Schroeder.
  19. https://www.mockdraftable.com/player/devin-singletary Check out his vertical, though.
  20. Did I miss all of apologies to Tyreek from the social justice warriors and keyboard commandos? No? I didn't think so.
  21. Crushed college, crushed the combine, crushed the Senior Bowl, bought his own juggs machine, and has an incredible work ethic. No one has proven they can out-scout something as basic as NFL draft position, so the Butler over Isabella truthers were in trouble from day one. And it keeps sounding worse for them. When Kliff Kingsbury said "that would be amazing" about the prospect of getting Isabella in round two on draft day as part of the Rosen trade, the armchair scouts should have paused the game tape, listened and thought for a minute about what that actually meant. Isabella = Future star.
  22. Fast, but with below average height, weight, wingspan, arm length, hand size, explosiveness, and agility and now blocked by a veteran Pro Bowler in a position that is very tough to learn. Good luck with this guy clogging your roster for a few years until you find out if he is any good.
  23. Murray's actual ADP in FFPC real money leagues is QB10 in both Best Ball and Classic formats.
  24. Your points in the Darrell Henderson thread were excellent and obviously correct. Matt Waldman writes 1000 pages a year and his post-draft RSP has never beaten good ol' draft position. Thanks for the posts.
