  1. Rodgers throws a lot to his RBs. As an owner of Williams in one league and Aaron jones in multiple leagues I know this to be true. I think no Jones, Williams or Dillon means that Rodgers will be throwing a whole lot, and I expect Ervin to be in there for most of the snaps. I like his chances at 5-6 targets and he could turn that into some production for a desperation play at flex/RB if you are in a deep league and dealing with byes/injuries. I'd lean Ervin. That said, Dexter might get a few carries and might be the one getting a run at the goal line. I think it will be Aaron Rodgers SZN tomorr
  2. All good. Aside from a couple money leagues I'm locked into dynasty mode. I play in three 16 team dynasties and none of the names mentioned are available in any league. I just don't think my rankings have changed much based on 4 games. Tee Higgins is probably the lone exception to moving up. I'm high on guys like Pittman and Edwards and refuse to drop them in rankings due to injuries.
  3. Guys like Higgins and Lamb have increased their stock no doubt. But has Pittman/Mims/Edwards hurt their stock because they have been hurt? I own multiple stocks in these 3 in my dynasty leagues and no way am I trading any of these guys for Gabe Davis for example.
  4. I guess I'm confused. Are we talking about dynasty value or 1 year value? If it's dynasty, does 4 games really change the projections of these rookie WRs?
  5. 1 last spot remaining Very active group of managers ready to begin a startup draft in the coming days. Email me quickly to claim the last available spot.
  6. 5 spots remaining Looking for active and dedicated managers
  7. I've played in numerous dynasty leagues in all 4 sports for the past 12-13 years. Still in a very strong dynasty football league that just completed year 12 so I have seen first hand what it takes to run a successful dynasty league. I have run leagues in the past so this isn't new territory for me by any means. The league will be 16 teams and through Yahoo! - There is no money involved. The draft will be offline, either through a chat or a forum. The plan is to keep it simple and not have anyone signing up for a bunch of sites/applications. After the draft everything will be run thro
  8. No giant leap from Powell coming. He is just a piece for us. My guess is that there will be multiple different starters at SG and the hot hand approach will be in effect. Don't rule out guys like RHJ and Stanley Johnson for having some impact as the season goes along. They clearly aren't reaching the hype we had on them when they were drafted, but they can defend and will have their few games a year that gets us excited about them again. Powell has stretches of effectiveness mixed in with stretches where he looks bad - I don't really expect that to change. BTW, raps fan that probab
  9. Completely agree. The system is broken for the RB position. The most exciting position in football should be compensated. However, the argument at hand is whether or not Pollard can hold down the position and my belief from what I have read and considering the o-line factor is that he will be able to...
  10. If I'm Zeke I'm hurrying back before people realize that the Cowboys O-line is a large part of the success. Don't get me wrong, Zeke is a top 5 NFL back and that's being conservative. But my personal belief is that the cowboys have spent so much on their o-line that you can make an average back become an above average back. End of the day the cowboys need Dak to make another leap. If he does, along with that o-line and the weapons they have at WR, I think Tony Pollard will be more than capable of handling the cowboys RB spot. BTW, the cowboys spent a 4th round pick on this kid. This isn;'
  11. Fantasy football is all about piecing together a team week to week. If Pollard can be an RB2 for 5-6 weeks until zeke returns then why it that a bad thing? If he performs well he would make for a top handcuff when zeke does come back.
  12. I still have him for now. Lots of talks and the Texans do likely sign someone, but it hasn't happened yet!
  13. I would assume the 'car' is a closing gig and 'steering the car' is having the stuff to be a closer. I guess maintaining control could be him having trouble staying awake at times while driving? lol
  14. Magill looked strong in the 9th. Got Meadows to ground out and caught Pham looking at a 95mph FB on the outside corner. Choi hit a deep fly ball to end the game. Looked very in control.
  15. Someone like Margot is more of what I was thinking. Other than a couple short stretches what has he done these last 2 seasons? The question then becomes whether or not he could handle playing CF. He is pretty athletic but CF is a completely different ballgame altogether. Point is, someone is going to have to find a spot to give this kid a chance soon. Just don't think it's zero chance that it is the padres haha
  16. Not sure about zero chance. The Padres want starting pitching and will likely try to make a trade this offseason. France could be part of that trade, or he could have the chance to fill an open position from a trade. Urias could be a necessary piece in a trade. He is more than capable at 2B from what I have seen, but I'm a little surprised he hasn't played some OF this year. With Reyes gone and Myers being someone they want to move the best chance for playing time might be out there.
  17. Here are the numbers in the minors this season vs LHP: .313avg 1.012ops 8HR 20K in 83 ABs vs RHP: .294avg .984ops 20HR 61K in 211 ABs Almost identical HR per AB against RHP as LHP. Slightly higher K rate against RHP. Slightly lower OPS against RHP. The stats tell me that he is more than capable against RHP, even if he is slightly better against LHP. He has a higher BB rate against RHP as well so while he hits slightly better against LHP he isn't having too much trouble taking pitches from RHP. I think the batting stance change was a key for him. H
  18. Law of averages was bound to kick in! Good chance he still hits or comes very close to a 40HR season.
  19. 41 days between games. So that would be 6 weeks. That would put most of us to the end of our 1st round playoff matchups I believe?
