  1. I am in for this season. Regarding deceptive records, There isn't much you can do after looking at records and points and preventing blatent tanking. I guess you could just look at points, but that can be misleading sometimes too. A dynasty team that gets the injury bug might have a season where they score a low number of points but their long term assets might still be great. Basically you'd have to invent a new system that would allocate comp picks to teams that really suck based on an objective criteria.
  2. Leaf was projected to go #2, Trubisky was projected to go in the teens but as the draft approached more people mocked the Browns trading up into the top 5 for him. This may have lead the Bears to overpay to get him... So yeah he was probably a bigger reach than Leaf at the time of their respective drafts.
  3. https://overthecap.com/should-the-falcons-trade-julio-jones/ "The Falcons guaranteed $64 million dollars with full guarantees that would virtually run through the 2021 season. The contract made Jones un-cuttable through 2021- it would leave the Falcons with a $40.55 million cap charge- and virtually untradeable given their cap situation- his $23.25 million in dead money would be the same as keeping him on the team." "That leaves the June 2 as the only real option for the Falcons. By delaying a trade until that time Atlanta can split that $23.25 million across two seasons. They would be charged $7.75 million on the cap this year, saving the team $15.3 million in cap space, and $15.5 million next year, which is about $3.7 million in savings for 2022." ... "As for a team looking to acquire Jones it is very affordable. It is $15.3 million this year and $11.513 million in each of the next two years. Just $17.3 million is guaranteed so if things went really bad a team could walk away but at an average of $12.8 million a year even a diminished Jones would be reasonable value at that cost."
  4. I know and agree, I was just pointing out why other fantasy owners/fans might be skeptical of any claims of fantasy relevance of Jets players.
  5. A few years back the Jets drafted a QB in the first round in same draft where the Bills, Browns and Ravens took a first round QB. But yes the Jets have a new coaching staff and a lot of new offensive players which on paper may lead to some fantasy upside.
  6. I am pretty happy with the Jets draft. It seems like we finally have a decent GM.
  7. Was he a smart enough fan to gimmick the table or did he just really go through the table like a 90s ECW midcarder with no future?
  8. I'm a bit underwhelmed with the Jets taking a small slot WR at 34, but I still can't complain,
  9. I'm scared of Mike Boone if he's on my fantasy team.
  10. Were those WRs really open? I'd need to see the back end of the defense on that play. It didn't look like any were getting open past the first down marker... From what I can see, Fields is up 7-0 in the first quarter, it's 3rd and 23...the defense rushed 3 and dropped everyone else into coverage. I'd be more than happy with my QB rushing to get better field position for a punt rather than tossing it into coverage and risking an interception. Maybe I've just watched too many Jets QBs over the years, but it seems to me Justin Fields makes good choices based on game situations from the games I watched.
  11. Normally I wouldn't be thrilled with taking a guard so early, but apparently he can play LT too, which is nice even though the Jets have a LT.
  12. Oh no, what are they doing...
  13. Good moves by the Cowboys after missing out on the corners they wanted.
  14. Lots of people pick at stuff with Fields, but he throws a great deep lob pass along the sidelines where only the WR can get it. He's also obviously a great runner, and he makes good choices based on down and distance. Who knows how it turns out, but I think the Bears did well for themselves to move up and take a shot on him.
  15. Shut the hell up Goodell and announce the pick.
  16. Chicago traded into the Giants spot..
  17. Maybe Fields will fall to the Jets at 23.
  18. Packers might have wanted to wait to see who was on the board. Most likely it doesn't happen, but players have been traded for picks before in the first round.
  19. He doesn't have to be a great inline blocker, but as a defensive coordinator who are you covering with your 3rd CB? Julio, Ridley or Pitts?
  20. Fields should go before Mac Jones, I would think.
  21. Really? "New York Jets Darksider" fans is a real thing....or just see my post on page 1.
  22. If the offseason "leaks" are true, the 49ers offer the Jets the 12th pick for Sam Darnold, and later the 3rd overall pick for Aaron Rodgers. and both teams didn't take it....lol.
  23. Why would I have a bad feeling about the Jets drafting a QB? Recent History: 2018- SAM DARNOLD, USC (1st Round) 2016- CHRIS HACKENBERG, PENN STATE (2nd Round) 2015- BRYCE PETTY, BAYLOR (4th Round) 2014- TAJH BOYD, CLEMSON (6th Round) 2013 – GENO SMITH, WEST VIRGINIA (2nd Round) 2011 – GREG McELROY, ALABAMA (7th Round) 2009 – MARK SANCHEZ, USC (1st Round) 2008 – ERIK AINGE, TENNESSEE (5th Round) 2006 – KELLEN CLEMENS, OREGON (2nd Round) 2003 – BROOKS BOLLINGER, WISCONSIN (6th Round) I watched a bit of Wilson, not enough to form an opinion one way or the other. I didn't think he was as amazing as people are making him out to be. I watched more of Justin Fields trying to figure out why his "stock" has dropped so much in the past two months or so.
  24. It might be, but he's 33 already. Seems a bit old to break back into the NFL. He'd be worth it as a special teamer/gadget player/Emergency QB on offense, but Tebow should have done that years ago.
