  1. 2019 Do Not Draft List

    So it was a bad idea to draft CMC, James White, Tarik Cohen, Nick Chubb and Aaron Jones? If you don’t take some shots on RBs with unclear roles, you can’t hit on any value picks.
  2. 2019 Do Not Draft List

    Any Ravens RB at any price no matter what happens in the off-season, as long as Harbaugh is still in town. I still can’t believe he pulled Gus Edwards out of a hat just when Alex Collins was finally going to face some easy run defenses. Never again.
  3. Aaron Jones 2018 Outlook

    The reason is always something ridiculous like “he missed curfew” or “he talked back to the coach.” He likely broke some stupid team rule and his punishment was that he didn’t get the start and was benched for a series. Then the Pack couldn’t stay on the field for most of the first half, and the issue looked worse than it was. This is one of the most aggravating things that can happen in fantasy. I still remember when Joique Bell was benched for the first half during fantasy semifinals because he was late to practice or something, and it almost cost me a title. But given what Jones did in the second half (and what Williams always fails to do), there’s zero reason to believe Jones lost his job or that this is a timeshare.
  4. 2018 "Cool Story, Bro!" Thread

    Just finished 7-7 after starting the season 1-6, climbing from 12th to 5th place. My last four games were against the four playoff teams, but I messed up all their seeding by going 3-1 against them. Dalvin Cook’s garbage time TD single-handedly knocked the 1st place team down to 2nd, and it was almost like winning the Super Bowl.

    Started AB against Juju. I’m actually still projected to win but it wasn’t supposed to even be close!
  6. 2019 Do Not Draft List

    Antonio Brown. He’s simply not worth a first-round pick anymore with Juju playing like he has, but AB’s consistency and TD-dependent scoring is probably going to keep him in play as the first WR drafted. Drafting him in 2019 will mean missing out on an elite RB, and you need one of those to win.
  7. Mark Sanchez 2018 Outlook

    As ridiculous as it is that the Redskins are willing to have a domestic abuser on the roster before they’ll sign a QB who advocates for racial equality, I do wish Rotoworld would stop beating the Kaep drum. Sanchez has no business being on a 53 man roster while Kaep remains blackballed, but It’s obviously not going to happen.
  8. Consolation (Loser) Round

    In my league we lock the rosters for non-playoff teams after Week 14 (our playoffs are Week 15 & 16). In my opinion, once you don't make the playoffs, your season is over. Injuries to star players are pretty common late in the season. Even one-game suspensions happen with some regularity as players get frustrated. I don't like the idea of teams with nothing to play for being able to manipulate the playoff results. I lost a championship a few years back because the 12th place team sniped my guy. I've also seen teams out of contention drop a guy with a short-term injury in Week 15, and then the championship team is able to pick him up and start him for Week 16. All of that should be right out. The endgame should only involve 4 teams, provided it's a redraft league with no keepers (and no draft order, Sacko award, etc. on the line).
  9. Mark Ingram 2018 Outlook

    Maybe this is largely a semantic argument, but I think there's a difference between saying a player is a top-24 start next week, versus saying a player is likely to finish in the top-24 at their position at the end of the season. At the end of the season there are always lots of players in the top-24 who were not necessarily top-24 plays on most weeks -- one reason is that they are inconsistent (like Ingram, DJax and a whole host of others), and the other reason is that end-of-season point totals are misleading because most players don't make it all 16 games. Unexceptional players who stay healthy and get lots of volume often wind up in the end-of-season top-24 despite rarely actually putting up top-24 numbers. I think Ingram will finish in the top-24 in points-per-game because he had a few good games and may have a few more, but there are easily 24 RBs I'd start with more confidence on any given week, and that makes him an RB3/flex. Ingram has 3 top-10 finishes and then finishes of RB40, RB25, RB41, RB33, and RB54. He's outside of the top-24 more often than he's in it.
  10. Mike McCarthy 2018 Outlook

    They have a pretty good roster, lots of young talent in the skill positions, and no huge free agent problems the next couple years. I think they can make the playoffs next year. Better playcalling would have won them at least 3 or 4 games this season that they shouldn't have lost, and we'd be viewing this team very differently right now.
  11. Mark Ingram 2018 Outlook

    An RB2 isn't just a top-24 scorer at the position. In order to be ranked this way before they play the games (as opposed to looking at the points totals afterwards), we need to see a solid touch and yardage floor. Ingram now has 63 or fewer yards on the ground in 6 of 8 games, with 3 games under 35 rushing yards. He's repeatedly shown that he's merely a high-upside RB3/flex who needs everything from gamescript to ball placement to go his way in order to produce a ceiling game. They don't even always use him to kill clock in the second half when the Saints are up. He doesn't get all of the goal line touches. There's no way to predict when the big games come.
  12. Jameis Winston 2018 Outlook

    The Saints are a tough matchup. The Bucs only blew them out in Week 1 because they didn’t take Fitzmagic seriously. The Saints D has really tightened up down the stretch and I see a game where they jump out to a big lead early and Winston throws multiple picks in the second half trying to catch up. I want no part of those Baltimore or Dallas games either. But this Carolina game should be fun at least.
  13. Kareem Hunt 2018 Outlook

    Even if a team picks him up from waivers, he’s going to be on the exempt list for the rest of the season, and he’s almost certainly facing a six game ban next season. The question for the offseason is, how high can we draft this guy when he’s playing for a new team (say the Bears or Jets) and he’s going to miss almost half the regular fantasy season. He’s not going to play anywhere this season and that makes him droppable in redraft.
  14. Kareem Hunt 2018 Outlook

    It’s such nonsense how the league continues to act *only* when a video goes up on TMZ and it becomes a PR problem. You never see a team get out in front of the story. The Chiefs wanted to see how many wins they could get before they lost Hunt to the TMZ flu — the answer was, enough to lock up a high seed. Why are Mixon and Hill still in the league? Because their incidents didn’t cause a big enough feeding frenzy and now it’s old news.
  15. Kareem Hunt 2018 Outlook

    He could really wreck the league with RB/K dual eligibility.
