  1. Entire team in signature. 6 point passing TD's and return yards (1 point per 20 ret yards). Non-PPR. Keeper league where you can keep a player two rounds prior to where you drafted them the year prior (max three keepers). Carson could be a decent keeper (can be kept in 13th round next year) but we can only keep three players total and I already have amazing keepers (Mahomes, Conner, OJ Howard, Valdez-Scantlying, Cohen) to choose from. Rodgers is only going to make it in on my bye week (barring injury), which is the one big negative besides losing amazing QB depth. Love Mixon's schedule. Carson's usage is a bit up in the air with his hip injury, though he should start if healthy. Neither Rodgers or Mixon can be kept. My opponent's only QB is A. Smith. He is clawing one of the last playoff spots. I'm tied for first. WHIR
  2. Le'Veon Bell 2018 Outlook

    So I'm pretty sure you're trolling at this point, but in case you aren't... In either case Bell will be a a free agent. In the first scenario it is because he signs and the Steelers can't franchise tag him. In the second scenario it is because (as you have noted multiple times), the Steelers will "NOT" tag him (due to the cost). I'm not sure why you put NOT in quotes. It's confusing me. On top of that, only in the second scenario (sitting out the entire season) is he exposed to no risk of football-related injury. That being said he may want to play a little this year to remind teams how good he is. But only Bell knows what Bell is thinking (and maybe...maybe his agent).
  3. Le'Veon Bell 2018 Outlook

    I don't know what Bell is going to do, but to answer your questions: 1. So that he won't get injured. He will also remove the risk of looking equal to or worse than Conner if he plays this year (regardless of how likely you think this is, it is still a risk). 2. The point is that there is no way the Steeler's would franchise tag him a third time so he would become an unrestricted free agent.
  4. Standard scoring. Start Ingram @ Min or Chubb @ Pitt?
  5. James Conner 2018 Outlook

    This is great news. It means that Bell won't be playing for at least two weeks after he signs (since the Steelers would have to pay him if they play him...but since they don't plan to pay him it means they don't plan to play him). I've gotten as much out of Conner as I could have ever hoped. And things could still break even more in his favor depending on how things shake out.
  6. Le'Veon Bell 2018 Outlook

    That is a lot of words to say that you agree with Impreza's take that Bell is a long shot to play week 8. If you think he will at best come back week 10, then surely he is a long shot to play week 8, no? As much as you would like to believe that your incredible deductive skills have lead you to the truth of the situation (actually, you will probably say that anyone with half a brain should have already come to the same conclusions), nothing released to the press from either side can really be trusted. That leaves interpreting Bell's actions and guessing at his psyche/true intentions. The degree of your certainty regarding this situation comes off as irrational and it detracts from the validity of your arguments. You may end up being correct, but pretending like you've gotten to the truth at this point is silly. Bell may not play another down for the Steelers. He could also come back week 10 and be in an RBBC with Conner. I can't see him not playing hard (if and when he plays) because he will be auditioning for a big payday. Behaving differently would be counterproductive to his best interests and the RBBC would keep both RB's fresh. Alternatively, he might get traded. Or maybe he has burned too many bridges in Pit and when he signs week 10, the Steelers use the roster exemption provision (assuming he is not in game shape), withhold a game check or two because of it, and let him ride the pine because they have moved on. Or maybe the Steelers decide to keep Conner fresh for next year and run Bell into the ground after he reports (unlikely). I don't pretend to know, but I wouldn't be shocked with any of those scenarios.
  7. Jordan Howard 2018 Outlook

    I put out about five trades involving him last week to teams weak at RB. I ended up getting JuJu in a standard scoring league straight up (guy had Fournette, Cook, McCoy) and was pretty ecstatic. Also, another manager mentioned that he would have accepted my offer as well but the JuJu deal was done. So last week there was definitely some interest (in my league). Probably wouldn't have been any in PPR. However, after this week his value took a big knock. Week 4 could have been an aberration and game plan dependent. After this week, against an average team, it doesn't look as promising.
  8. Jordan Howard 2018 Outlook

    I'm not sure how things are going to shake out between Howard and Cohen. Since I was deep at RB in one league (not the league in my sig) and needed a WR, I was able to trade him straight up for JuJu in standard. Just to give a frame of reference for value. I think Cohen will be more involved than the first few weeks but not as involved as he was last game. And while Chicago's offense looked good last game, it wasn't enough to convince me that they will be above average going forward. Due to the uncertainty I shipped off Howard, but he should provide solid production if Chicago's offense is for real. Their defense is definitely for real and I could see some game scripts that involve a heavy dose of Howard, despite him not being used much last game.
  9. I would do it. Just start getting some feelers out to potentially add some TE depth.
  10. Clement for Bell? WHIR 100%

    I don't think you can make this trade. At this point you need someone who has the potential to turn around your season. While I don't know what Bell's involvement will be when he comes back, he has a higher probability of being a special fantasy player than Clement.
  11. Dalvin Cook for AJ Green? WHIR

    I would not make the trade. I think you're giving up too much. I see that you are going to have four top WR's, but maybe try to add some cheaper PPR RB depth (Breida, C. Thompson, etc.) until a team with an RB1 is in need of a WR (at which point you can get fair value for one of your top WR's).
  12. I love both of their matchups. 6 points per passing TD, -2 per INT, standard yardage scoring Mahomes @ NE Rodgers vs SF
  13. Thanks. Also, Mahomes is playing at home and not in Jasksonville. That was a mistake on my part.
  14. Same question across two different leagues: League 1 - Start Mahomes @ Jacksonville or Aaron Rodgers @ Detroit (6 point passing TD's, 25 passing yds/ 1 point, -2 per INT)? League 2 - Start Mahomes @ Jacksonville or Andrew Luck @ New England (5 point passing TD's, 20 passing yds/ 1 point, -2 per INT)?
  15. T.Y. Hilton 2018 Outlook

    Well. As a counterpoint I'm trying to pick him up in all of my leagues (own him in one). I think he's still going to have a big year and is currently undervalued. Luck's mediocre start is probably partly due to rust and arm strength that hasn't quite been build back to what it was. Hilton is still going to get a ton of targets and I think it's only a matter of time before they start taking more shots down the field.
