  1. Josh Hader 2018 Outlook

    As mentioned, dude is absolutely filthy. Excited about the rare Win and Hold combo he got on Yahoo two days ago. I thought it might have been a mistake since by definition a pitcher shouldn't be able to get both in the same game, but since Holds is an unofficial stat and Yahoo's stat provider uses a slightly different definition for Holds...we get both. Good stuff.
  2. I agree with this. It depends on your team's needs and current roster.
  3. Mixon for TY Hilton? WHIR!

    Thanks guys. Sounds like I could be asking for a little more. I proposed Mixon, DT and J. Reed for Hilton and Gronk as a starting point. Also offered Mixon for M. Evans to a different owner (both in dire need of an RB).
  4. 12 Team Standard scoring. Edit: We can start a third RB at Flex. Lacking elite WR talent. Have excellent RB depth. Trade my Mixon for his Hilton? Roster: QB: Cousins, Keenum RB: Conner, Bell, Howard, Mixon, Ingram, Barber WR: D. Thomas, J. Gordon, C. Davis, R. Anderson, J. Brown TE: J. Reed K: Carlson DEF: Houston
  5. Chris Carson 2018 Outlook

    Not an ideal first week for Carson owners, but I would be surprised if it continues to be an even split. That hasn't fit Carroll's MO in previous years. Last year started in a similar way, splitting carries between multiple players week one to get a feel for the backs. Week 2 saw a near-complete shift to Carson. It's possible it remains 50/50, but I think it's more likely that one running back ultimately takes over. Penny might also be more accepting of being a bench player to start his career now that he has played half the snaps in a game and was thoroughly outplayed by the other RB.

    Not true. I already linked the CBA a couple pages back, but the Roster Exemption, when granted by the NFL, allows the team to decide whether to pay the player or not for the two games following the signing and exemption being granted. If Bell plays or one of the weeks is a bye, he gets paid. It just usually isn't an issue because the team doesn't want to piss off the player or the player is ready to play the first game after signing.

    In the CBA there is section for late-reporting players for situations like this. It seems it is normally never enacted or requested because the team wants to stay on good terms with the player and/or the player is ready to play at the time they sign. It allows for a team to request a "Roster Exemption" that will allow the team to carry a 54th man. If granted by the league, the team does not have to pay this player for the first two regular season games after signing (unless he ends up playing in a game or one of the weeks is a bye). I was reading through the language in the CBA but wasn't going to put in the effort to parse it all out. It is discussed on page 61 and 131-132 of the CBA (linked below). https://nflpaweb.blob.core.windows.net/media/Default/PDFs/2011 CBA Updated with Side Letters thru 1-5-15.pdf
  8. If Bell doesn't play I would go with Conner and Ajayi.
  9. Which WR to start?

    Lockett or Amendola I would go with Lockett for upside but Amendola will probably have more receptions.
  10. Full point PPR, 5 Pts per passing TD, -2 PTS per INT, 1 Point per 20 yards passing, -0.5 points per sack for QB's Very deep league rosters. Drafted Mahomes around round 12, then Luck fell to round 13...but both of those guys are high risk QB's so I threw on Ryan just for fun. I will drop one of them in the next week or two. But the question of the day is who to start? Mahomes @ Chargers Luck vs. Cincy Ryan @ Philly WHIR
  11. Le'Veon Bell 2018 Outlook

    As of this moment I might take Bell around pick #30. Conner around pick #50. It stinks because I have a draft in two hours. I hope someone takes Bell early so I won't have to decide, then I might look for Conner if he slips.

    Wasn't that Bell tweet from May 2018? I think the poster of that was just trying to point out that Bell had apparently changed his mind.
  13. Le'Veon Bell 2018 Outlook

    Look at the date of the tweet you quoted...from May 2018.
  14. How many leagues do you play in?

    3 but I would like to move to 2 at some point. It's more fun for me when I'm not rooting for someone in one league and against the same person in another. I could see myself moving to 1 at some point. The emotional highs and lows are more extreme but also more meaningful. Good times.
