I guess I'll kick this thread off.

The draft date for my league has been changed four times now. Why can't these knuckleheads just set up a date and roll with it? I go through the same thing every year.

Tips to myself for 2016 Fantasy Football Season

1. When deciding between 2 running backs, choose the guy who will get the most touches in a favorable matchup AND has the higher projected scoring matchup (i.e Tim Hightower vs Jags over Charcandrick West vs Browns).

2. Play your STUDS. A stud has performed at a high level all season and has been pretty consistent barring a few games. Being a stud has nothing to do with draft position or name. (i.e Demaryius Thomas was solid but not a STUD in the 2015 season)

3. Defenses are as unpredictable as kickers.

4. Go with your gut not expert rankings. There are no experts in a game that consists majorly on luck.

5. Only use waivers on RB's.

6. When deciding on a WR, dont overthink the situation if a backup QB is throwing to him (i.e Weeden to Hopkins, Mallett to Aiken). Talent plus targets will prevail.

7. Make SMART trades

I'm a huge fan of the Lions, but i'm a fan of winning too. I had Redman and Kevin Smith as my RBs....I had no choice. I drafted a bunch of good WRs.

Ehhh, i'll believe it when I see it. He mostly dis his damage against 2nd and 3rd team defenses. I'm definitely interested to see how he does against a 1st team defense.

I think Matt Flynn will still end up with the starting job. T.O. catches those passes and Flynn would have looked golden.

Give T.O. a little more time to get accustomed to the offense, he literally just got there.
