    I think he’s referring to you mentioning Eli at QB haha


    Danny Dimezzzzzzzz 


    Oh is that what he was talking about? The guy I quoted was talking about Golden Tate being drafted so when I mentioned Eli, it was obviously during the beginning of the season when he was still the starter.

    I must be missing something with Tate, I play in one 12 team, and two 14 team leagues, all ppr


    tate was drafted and held in all those leagues


    if he's out there anywhere, scoop him up like it's ur first day working at baskin robbins 


    In 14 team leagues I can see him being drafted. In 12 team leagues it can go either way. People would rather draft some potential fliers for week 1 and drop them for Tate if they dont pan out. And its not like everyone trusts the Giants passing game especially with Eli at qb.

  3. I think I rather have them use Gurley this way than giving him all the touches early in the season and having him burnt out/injured come playoffs. We should be all be wanting his situation/usage. Even if it continues throughout the season, its not like we invested a first round pick on him. (This is what I say to myself to help me sleep at night.)

    He was lucky to have 97 yards yesterday.  Dude was sitting at under 35 rushing yards for a good 3 quarters of the game yesterday and got "vultured" twice by Brown.

    He also only had one reception...ONE.  That just won't cut it in a PPR league.  The workload decrease is real.

    Also, there were times were he really just avoided contact.  Last year, we would have taken defenders head on.  There was a play in the game yesterday where he could have bulldozed his way into the endzone but opted to run out of bounds instead. 

    His straight line speed looks fine but there is zero chance he is 100% and I doubt he will ever get there this season.


    100% or not, why the hell would he want to risk getting injured during the first week of the season? The Rams were up the whole game and there was really no need for him to get those extra yards. It looked like he turned it up a bit near the end once the Panthers started to come back.

    Anyone that makes a waiver claim now and is out of the playoffs needs to be kicked out of your league, that just ain't cool.


    Man everyone is making this statement more complicated then it needs to be. "What if theres a full moon and the polar caps melt down a few inches? Will it be ok to make a waiver claim?" Don't worry, there are people who understand what you are saying.

    If you have a top 5 RB stud you have to handcuff him no matter what.  With that said, your situation is a little different with only 5 bench spots and no IR.  Once this season ends, I would talk to your league mates and see if a majority of them would be willing to add a bench spot or two with an IR spot (we have 7 bench spots + IR).  This would allow you to handcuff your RB1 and allow for a spot or two for a lottery ticket stash.    


    Yeah I know. I traded for Hunt in week 8 and immediately picked up Ware. Held him for 3 weeks and had to drop because of byes and injuries. Like I said earlier, this was the week I pick him back up since byes are over. Since Hunt had a bye last week, I felt I could have waited closer to gametime this week to pick Ware up. I totally didnt see that Hunt drama coming mid week. I already asked in our group chat for at least an IR spot next year and most agreed to it but its up to commish who hasnt really said anything about it yet. 

  8. My rb depth took a beating the past few weeks:


    Kerryon- injured

    Alex Collins- replaced then IR'ed

    Hunt- waived

    Josh Adams- injured on saturday


    The past few weeks, there was a voice in my head telling me to cuff Hunt with Ware. With injuries on my team (including AJ Green) and only 5 bench spots with no IR, I was having a hard time finding a roster spot for Ware. My plan was to drop Humphries for Ware on Sunday once I knew AJ would really be back. I work a 12 hour graveyard shift so when the Hunt drama happened, I was fast asleep. I woke up to my friends in different leagues talking about what happened to Hunt in our group chat.


    For some reason, I know its silly since its only fantasy football (fantasy is life, amrite?), I felt crush for not cuffing Hunt. On my days off, I usually have NFL Network on in the background while browsing the Rotoworld forum so I would have totally been on top of the news had it been a day off. I know I'm just making excuses but I feel its just one of those situations where everything just seems to go against you. Thanks for reading my vent and I hope you take it easy on me for not cuffing lol.

    Please evaluate this recent trade.  The league is a 12 team standard.

    Team 1 trades   DeAndre Hopkins WR - HOU , Mike Evans WR - TB , Alex Collins RB - BAL , Corey Davis WR - TEN , Saquon Barkley RB - NYG to

    Team 2 for Alshon Jeffery WR - PHI , Robert Woods WR - LA , Leonard Fournette RB - JAX , Tarik Cohen RB - CHI , Marquez Valdes-Scantling WR - GB


    I am not part of this trade.  I am currently 10-1 with the following team.  We start 1 QB, 2 RB, 2 WR, 1 TE, 1 Flex (RB, WR, or TE), Def, K

    My team

    QB: Goff & Rivers

    RB: Gurley, Mixon, Chubb, Ingram, Mack, Breida

    WR: Thielen, Cooks, Golladay, Gordon

    TE: Gronk

    Def: Redskins

    K: Zuerlein


    I was asked if the trade should be allowed.  I am not a fan of veto so I said it should go through.  I was told today that the only reason the trade was made was so that I would not win the league.  I still do not care and believe I still win the league, but is this fair to other teams fighting for the playoffs?


    That is the definition of collusion which is what vetoes are for. What are those teams records btw?

    90% luck 


    I dont care what anyone says, this is 99% luck. That 1% is reserved for knowing how to place non bye players in your lineup. Then again there are people who lose to others who have bye players in so I'm gonna go with 99.9999% luck.

    I just realized this dude put up 15 points against JAX defense in Jacksonville. Only 2 other QBs have had a performance like that against JAX defense. He's hot right now and playing to win the division. History or not, i'm playing him and K. Allen.


    If my season goes down in flames because of it, I'm okay with it. 


    The difference between Jax and KC is that KC is in the same division as the Chargers. Divisional teams always play each other hard and since they usually play against each other more than once a year, they know the tendencies of the other team. Look at what happens to Brady every time he plays in Miami. Just because Rivers did well vs a good defense doesnt necessarily mean he'll do well against a lesser one.
