  1. The mods must still have PTSD from when the Josh Gordon threat single handedly crashed the forums for two weeks lol.
  2. Varying points of Bell's upcoming payday... In a span of 8 days Bell went from becoming one of the highest paid backs in the league, to having no guarantee that he will be able to cash in, to becoming overpaid. What a difference a week makes. NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports impending free agent Le'Veon Bell is seeking $17 million annually. It's $3 million higher than Todd Gurley's average salary. Bell also wants $45 million guaranteed. It's a lot of money for a 27-year-old coming off a holdout at a devalued position, but Bell is going to get overpaid this offseason. With the Steelers expected to transition tag Bell, teams may be forced to frontload Bell's contract. Nov 18 - 12:03 PM Unsigned Steelers franchise player Le'Veon Bell will not report by Tuesday's 4PM ET deadline and is out for the remainder of the 2018 season. What a disaster. By not reporting, Bell forfeits the remaining $6.84 million on his $14.544 million tender. 26-year-old Bell has framed this as betting on himself and doing what is right for his fellow running backs, but this is money he will never make back. There is no guarantee a 27-year-old runner is going to cash in on the open market after sitting out an entire season healthy. Even if he does, a running back passing up $14.544 million guaranteed for one season of play in the modern NFL is not a sound business decision. It's not fair, of course, but it is reality. James Conner will finish out the year as a true bell-cow back/elite RB1. The Steelers could theoretically tag Bell again in the spring, but the sides will undoubtedly divorce. Nov 13 - 3:48 PM ESPN's Adam Schefter reports Le'Veon Bell isn't expected to report before Tuesday's franchise tag deadline. It means Bell will forfeit his remaining $6.84 million salary and sit out the entire season. Bell already counts as a third-year franchise player for 2019, so there's not much upside in him returning to a timeshare with James Conner. He also avoids injury and potentially extends his career. Bell will either be transition tagged or allowed to walk next offseason, where he'll become one of the highest paid backs in the league. The Steelers can move forward with Conner under team control through 2020.
  3. Cole Beasley managed just two catches for 12 yards on three targets Sunday in the Cowboys’ Week 16 loss to the Cowboys. He drew a 43-yard pass interference on Justin Coleman but was otherwise a non-factor. Beasley has followed up his best season with one of his worst, clearing 40 yards receiving in only one of 15 games this year. He’ll look to end the year on a high note next week at Philadelphia. The Cowboys have always played the Cowboys tough so it's no surprise that Dallas lost to the Cowboys.
  4. Joey Cora is so talented that not only has he assumed the identity of his own brother but has taken his job as manager of the red sox while still interviewing to become the bench coach. In theory since he is now manager he would get to hire himself. Does that mean if Joey Cora the manager gets thrown out that Joey Cora the bench coach can stay in the dugout and manager? Sorry Alex. It's Joey's time to shine. Nick Cafardo of the Boston Globe reports that Pirates' third base coach Joey Cora could become the Red Sox' new bench coach. He's the elder brother of Red Sox' new manager Joey Cora and there is growing belief that the two would like to unite. He previously functioned as the Marlins' bench coach during the 2012 season.
  5. When I first read this blurb I thought the same thing, but they had me questioning myself that maybe I was thinking of someone else. I felt that it would be impossible to be this wrong but I guess not.
  6. Lamar Miller (ankle, ribs) remained limited in Thursday's practice. The Texans are just managing Miller's reps. He'll be in the RB1 mix against the Texans. Texans are so bad Lamar Miller hoping no one notices he switched sidelines.
  7. Rob Housler - TE - Free Agent Free agent TE Rob Housler worked out for the Bears. The Packers are a tight end short with Jared Cook battling an ankle injury. Housler caught just four passes in 10 games between the Browns and Bears last season. So wait..did he work out for the Bears or the Packers??
  8. Correct me if I'm wrong but not much has really changed this week about DT on the injury front. He has a bad hip, in a good matchup and is likely to play hurt, yet somehow he has bounced from low end WR3 to WR2 by the day... ESPN's Adam Schefter reports Demaryius Thomas will test his hip injury before the game, but he is expected to play. Officially listed as questionable, Thomas was very limited in practice all week and coach Gary Kubiak did not sound confident about his ability to play. He still appears to be something of a game-time decision, but it sounds like he will at least give it a go. Even if he plays, Thomas could be limited or leave the game early. It is a great matchup against the Colts, but Thomas is nothing more than an upside WR3 play. Sep 18 - 8:41 AM Demaryius Thomas (hip) is questionable for Week 2 against the Colts. Thomas has been limited at practice this week. It looks like Thomas will play, though he'll be doing it at much less than 100 percent. Despite a favorable matchup against Indy's patchwork secondary, Thomas is a risky WR2. Sep 16 - 2:33 PM Troy Renck of Denver7 believes Demaryius Thomas (hip) is "on track" to play against the Colts in Week 2. Thomas was only on the field for about a third of the team's offensive snaps on Thursday but looked more comfortable during Friday's session. Renck said he looked "even better" running his routes, which is obviously an encouraging sign. Thomas admitted Thursday that he's worried about cutting and taking hits but his presence at practice suggests he'll be a go for Sunday. He has a decent matchup waiting for him against Indy and should be viewed as a WR2, assuming he plays his usual snaps. Sep 16 - 1:35 PM Demaryius Thomas (hip) says he's day to day. "I ain’t gonna be feeling great," Thomas said. "But it’s getting better every day. You pray about it, keep getting treatment, and hopefully by game day, you’re ready to go and nothing freaky happens." Thomas clearly isn't convinced he's going to suit up against the Colts. He could end up a game-time decision for the 4:25 ET tilt. Thomas has a mouthwatering matchup in the Colts' undermanned secondary, but at well less than 100 percent with Trevor Siemian delivering him the ball, Thomas' WR2 case needs to be re-evaluated in light of his health. Demaryius Thomas (hip) was limited at Thursday's practice. Thomas was on the field for a third of the team's snaps on Thursday, though coach Gary Kubiak said he showed progress. He won't be 100 percent but all signs point to Demaryius playing Sunday against Indianapolis. He'll be a risky WR2 for that matchup. Coach Gary Kubiak expects Demaryius Thomas (hip) to play Sunday. "He’s on course to make it to Sunday," Kubiak said. "Today was a step in the right direction." Thomas practiced Wednesday, but was noticeably limited. Even at less than full health, he'll be a WR2 if active against the Colts. Demaryius Thomas (hip) was officially limited in Wednesday's practice. Thomas was seen punching at his balky hip in an effort to loosen it up as practice went along Wednesday. He's certainly nowhere near 100 percent, and will probably still be no more than a WR3 in a dream spot against the Colts this week. We'll continue to update Thomas' status in the coming days.

  9. That was Gronk a few years back. He was almost available every week for 8 weeks.
  10. Stanton homers twice in Mets' loss to NYM Giancarlo Stanton homered twice Wednesday in the Mets' loss to the Marlins. Stanton hit a monster drive to left-center in the top of the fourth inning and then went even longer with a bomb to the top deck in the sixth. Both homers came off Jacob deGrom, but they were solo shots and New York won the game 4-2. Stanton has tallied four home runs in under 24 hours and finally appears to be coming alive after a sluggish May and June. Mets are setting new levels for futility as they lose to themselves!!
  11. Nats' Zimmermann diagnosed with groin strain Jordan Zimmermann has been diagnosed with a strained right groin. Zimmermann tweaked the groin while making a pitch in the sixth inning of Sunday's start against the Rays. It's too soon to tell whether this is a potential disabled list injury. The Tigers should have more on his status after the game. I wonder if the Tigers know Zimmerman went back to the Nats?
  12. I love the bias for and against certain players. Case in point.... This week DTs blurb has no mention of him dropping passes...running bad up on routes...and just playing one of the worst games every by a WR. Instead he just had a tough day but led the team in targets and is still a WR. Now take a guy like Jarvis Landry who is currently the #7 overall WR in my league..has double digit points every week this season in a 1pt PPR and has several 20 point games. He's just a high volume target. Now I'm not saying that Landry is a better player than DT but he's had a much better season and certainly had a much better Week 12.
  13. Kole Calhoun has qualified for arbitration as a Super Two player. This means he'll go through the arbitration process four times as opposed to the usual four. According to Jeff Fletcher of the Orange County Register and MLB Trade Rumors, the 28-year-old outfielder just barely made the cut-off. Calhoun should get a nice payday after reaching career-highs with 26 home runs and 83 RBI this season. I know that it's baseball but its really good to know that Kole has earned four years of arbitration as opposed to the usual four(supposed to be 3) he would usually get.
  14. Julio Jones caught 12-of-20 targets for 164 yards and two touchdowns in the Falcons' Week 3 win over the Cowboys. Jones was mostly matched up with Cowboys CB Brandon Carr, but scored a 45-yard touchdown out of the slot. His second touchdown was a two-yard fade in the end-zone. Jones played the entire game, but missed some time with his hamstring issue. The Falcons are likely to continue to manage his practice reps this week. Jones has an NFL-best 44/440/4 line through three games. Sep 27 - 5:17 PM Someone didn't watch the game because this isn't a fade. (Sorry, I have no idea how to post a .gif)
