  1. If I'm not mistaken, the Lions have tendered an offer to Malcolm Brown and the Rams have yet to match it. They still have a few of days to do so, so I assume we'll know more soon enough.
  2. Hmm, I just remember reading this while Adrian Peterson was on the list. (from nfl.com - http://www.nfl.com/news/story/0ap3000000396169/article/what-is-the-reservecommissioner-exempt-list) ""The Exempt List is a special player status available to clubs only in unusual circumstances. The List includes those players who have been declared by the Commissioner to be temporarily exempt from counting within the Active List limit. Only the Commissioner has the authority to place a player on the Exempt List; clubs have no such authority, and no exemption, regardless of circumstances, is automatic. The Commissioner also has the authority to determine in advance whether a player's time on the Exempt List will be finite or will continue until the Commissioner deems the exemption should be lifted and the player returned to the Active List." Essentially, Peterson can remain on the list for an undetermined period of time -- while he gets paid -- and doesn't take up one of the Vikings' roster spots." I would also assume that ultimately, the decision is Goodell's to make and he may very well get "credit for time served", but nobody really knows for sure at this point.
  3. The chiefs cut him and the league put him on the exempt list. One of the upcoming questions for Hunt will be if his missed games count towards his suspension or not, but I thought that while on the exempt list, the player is payed and games missed don't count towards suspension. I see a lot of people throwing around numbers like 5-8 game suspension, but I thought that 6 games was the league standard for this kind of thing, plus whatever he gets for the other two incidents.
  4. LOL - This debate is the equivalent to debating whether dogs or cats make better pets. Everyone KNOWS that dogs (auction drafts) make better pets, but cats (snake drafts) are usually easier to live with, so people tolerate them and act like they're cool too.
  5. Well, considering he was generally the 2nd player taken in rookie drafts last year, I'm guessing that it would take a fairly high first round pick to get him. During the season, when owners needed production, he may have been cheaper (I was able to trade A. Collins and a late 2nd for him) but now that it's the offseason, I'm sure owners value him pretty close to the same place they drafted him.
  6. Yeah, I guess it really boils down to roster size. Small benches make it way to hard to hold onto a guy that you know you aren't starting any time soon. What's worse is if you don't have an IR spot, and you have a stud rookie rb that goes onto IR (Guice, or Kerryon)
  7. We have a fairly complicated way of doing this. It get's a little confusing, but it seems to work pretty well. If you paid $3 or less = cost $10 to keep If you paid $4 to $22 = add $7 to the cost If you paid $23 or more = add 30% to the original draft cost (round to the nearest dollar) Waiver wire pickups may be kept for the subsequent season with the following stipulations If a player was originally drafted the keeper cost will be the average of the draft price and the FAAB pickup price plus the applicable markup. For example, Player is drafted at $50 and subsequently tears ACL, gets dropped, and is picked up by another team for $10 off of waivers (rounding to the nearest whole dollar). His keeper cost will be $30 plus 30% markup for the next season. However, if the waiver price exceeds the draft price, the waiver price will be utilized as the keeper cost (plus applicable markup). A player must be on your roster prior to the trade deadline and remain on the roster through the end of the season to be eligible as a keeper. (This is to prevent players who didn't make the playoffs from blowing up their roster and grabbing good players that are hurt or on IR late in the season)
  8. I used to use draftbreakdown.com to watch video on incoming rookies and rookie breakdowns, but the site has since been shut down. Is there another site that people are doing to watch video on players? Youtube is always an option, but I'm looking for one spot that has an index of players so it's easier to find video on guys. Also, when there is a list of players (rather than having to search by player name) I tend to stumble across previously unknown guys that may be sleepers.
  9. Why not just play in dynasty leagues with large rosters then? Also, doesn’t a FAAB waiver system counter some of this?
  10. They just look like a team who have quit for the year. I have serious concerns for Fournette in the fantasy playoffs.
  11. Nothing like getting sniped on the WW for Jaylen Samuels.....BY A GUY WHO DIDN'T EVEN MAKE THE PLAYOFFS!
  12. Same, but I have higher expectations for him next season. I wonder how healthy he really is this season. I watched a bit of his college tape to prepare for dynasty drafts, and he looked a lot quicker and lighter on his feet in college than he did this year. Maybe he put on weight?
  13. A dude in my league autodrafted and got both of these guys as well as Kittle. He starts Ertz and Kelce every week and is easily going to make the playoffs. Both of these guys score points like a WR anyway, so not such a crazy idea when you think about it.
  14. I thought that early on in the game he looked to be limping a little bit. It could also be the fact that it's his first NFL season being a bellcow and he's just getting a little worn out down the stretch.
  15. I started Gerald Everett and his second TD got me the win and secured a playoff spot. CSB!
  16. Really!?! This is the week that Jordan Reed and Doug Baldwin come out of their comas? When I'm playing the 1st place team who just had to pick these scrubs up off of the waiver wire to fill in for byes? Guess I won't be making the playoffs.
  17. I always thought this about Hopkins too. How does he not get flagged for more offensive pass interference calls? Of course, when he's on my team, I don't complain. I don't know if OBJ really needs an accurate QB or not, but what I do know is that he needs one that won't under throw the ball when he's screaming down the sideline for any easy long TD. Seems Eli's weak noodle arm hurts more than his accuracy since technically, Eli currently has the highest completion percentage of his career.
  18. Well, to start I needed Dallas to at least pretend they were going to cover Zach Ertz for the final two minutes of the football game. Now I need 110 yards and a TD from OBJ. Here's hoping Eli's noodle arm doesn't fall off and he can throw further than 5 yards downfield tonight.
  19. I don't believe Burkhead is eligible to return until week 13. Just keep that in mind if you are planning on selling/buying.
  20. This was actually his 5th game with Crowder out. In the previous 4 games combined, he was 11 for 102. I have a hard time believing that this game is little more than an outlier, but who knows. Maybe if you have a deep bench? Washington generally doesn't seem to have much to offer for FF as far as receivers go, and bringing Alex Smith in has done nothing to change that in a positive way. Edit: If by long-term you mean next season and on a different team, maybe worth a stash on deep benched dynasty teams.
  21. f--- you Sam Darnold (superflex). Would have e been better off starting Sony Michel.
  22. Yeah, I just got a sleeperbot notification about it. @Ronahan24 tweeted it, but I have no idea who that is, or whether or not it can be trusted.
  23. Bowel movement.....or Baker Mayfield. Not sure which.
  24. I missed the game, did DeVante Parker look like an actual football player? The box score would lead me to believe that he might actually be pretty good.
