  1. SNF/MNF - What do you need?

    I'm up 25 pts with Diggs still to play and he has Thielen and Carson. Full pt ppr, and it's too close for my comfort.

    Bad matchup, over the hill runner, short rest. All signs point to a huge game.
  3. Mitch Trubisky 2018 Outlook

    I have no real insight, other than to say this really seems like a lot of speculation fueled by talk radio hosts/sportwriters trying to drum up intrigue. The only real news is that Shefter reported that the Bears were optimistic and then Nagy said he was day to day, which people took as bad news after hearing the Bears were optimistic earlier. All the other "news" is guesswork generated off of those 2 pieces of news. just seems like a lot of noise at this point. Luckily with the first game of the week, there is plenty of time to react.
  4. Huge trade, please help! WHIR

    Is your waiver wire that thin where you can't find a starter better than MVS? Normally the person getting the best player wins these types of trades, but in your case, this might make sense.
  5. James Conner 2018 Outlook

    While I agree with you that the guys you mentioned are on a different level than Conner (at this point in their careers), I could also find some duds on those guys resumes as well.
  6. James Conner 2018 Outlook

    What a stupid take on ESPNs player profile for Conner after sunday's game: Spin: Expecting to get Le'Veon Bell back this season, the Steelers rode Conner hard prior to this contest. That approach was great for Conner's fantasy owners, but all that wear and tear might be catching up to Conner, who will continue to carry the load with Bell having failed to end his holdout by the deadline. Then again, the talented Jaguars defense completely stymied the Steelers through almost three quarters before blowing a 16-0 lead, so this dud could simply be attributed to a tough matchup and not the beginning of a decline from Conner. How he fares against a vulnerable Denver run defense in Week 12 will say a lot about Conner's rest-of-season outlook. So the Steelers are really smart enough to know exactly how much wear and tear Conner could take and timed it out perfectly where he would be all used up by the time Bell reported in Week 11. I'd say the second half of the explanation is probably closer to the truth.

    Really wishing they'd just rule him out so I can use the IR roster spot.
  8. Ryan Fitzpatrick 2018 Outlook

    I love the enigma that is Fitzpatrick. Do I start him or do I stream the defense that is playing against him. Or both just to cover my bases. Way too much time spent pondering the bearded one...
  9. Le'Veon Bell 2018 Outlook

    So do you think if they signed Bell to a 5 year 120 million contract with 30 million coming in year 5, he would ever see a dime of that 30 million? Under performance as it relates to your contract is a real possibility for a running back, which is why they need guaranteed money.
  10. Le'Veon Bell 2018 Outlook

    Fine. I'll concede that the correct choice was to avoid Bell. However, my point more was that even if someone made the "wrong" decision and drafted Bell it wasn't necessarily a season killer if you went in with your eyes wide open.
  11. Le'Veon Bell 2018 Outlook

    No one should be blaming Bell for losing their league. I had the 4th overall pick in my draft. I was prepared to take Bell and knew that the risk involved in it meant i was probably going to lose a 7th or 8th round pick to make sure I got his handcuff. Luckily, someone took Bell before I had to make the decision. However, the price for uncertainty of Bell's situation coming into the season, was a late round pick to make sure you got his handcuff. If you paid that price, you should be just fine right now.
  12. James Conner 2018 Outlook

    I thought all along Bell had to report by week 10 in order for this season to "Count". Why are they now saying regardless of whether he reports or not, he will be considered a 3rd year franchise tag player? Did something change or was that the case all along. What does Bell gain by reporting by week 10 (other than the rest of this year's salary)?
  13. Jordy Nelson 2018 Outlook

    I'm mixed on this news. He was doing relatively well as the 2nd receiver. Does he still have the skill set to be a #1 receiver against a #1 corner? I'd say it's a positive at the moment, but we have to see how it plays out.
  14. Wanna takeover Either Team ?

    Can you put a link to the league? I'd be interested in one of the teams.
