  1. I dunno... Do you think Dante Pettis will be available?
  2. Get the best, youngest players you can.
  3. I don't usually do snake drafts, but I only had a short time to draft tonight, so I relented. I think maybe I nailed the Dream Draft in the process. 10 Team PPR Best-Ball League. I was sitting there with the #2 overall pick, all ready to take Zeke, and then the #1 pick didn't show up and autodrafted David Johnson. Merry Christmas to me! QB: Andrew Luck (9) 11.2, Derek Carr (7) 13.2, Ryan Tannehill (11) 20.9 RB: Todd Gurley (12) 1.2, Jay Ajayi (9) 4.9, Marshawn Lynch (7) 8.9, Marlon Mack (9) 9.2, Ty Montgomery (7) 14.9 WR: Mike Evans (5) 2.9, Larry Fitzgerald (9) 3.2, T.Y. Hilton (9) 5.2, Pierre Garcon (11) 6.9, Jordy Nelson (7) 10.9, Martavis Bryant (7) 15.2 TE: Greg Olsen (4) 7.2, Benjamin Watson (6) 17.2 K: Detroit Lions (6) 18.9, San Francisco 49ers (11) 19.2 DST: Jacksonville Jaguars (9) 12.9, Baltimore Ravens (10) 16.9 It's probably a better team than could be assembled in an auction draft.
  4. Except for Watkins having 3 times as many TDs.
  5. That's probly why you listened for once.
  6. BAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!! What are you, Tyrod's cousin or something? Spin it all you like, Benjamin was a strong WR2 in Carolina and waiver wire fodder in Buffalo. Based on his numbers through 6 games, Benjamin would have posted 43 receptions for 579 yards and 3 TDs through a full 16 games.
  7. See? Good things happen when you listen to Axe Elf. San Francisco will be the surprise this season. Not as elite as the Jags, but start-worthy in most leagues.

  9. Half of the truth is all of a lie. People like to crow about "Black '16" when 40% of the players drafted in Axe Elf's 50 Draft Masters teams on RT Sports went down for the year, and of course in a Draft Masters league, there's nothing one can do about it but move on to next year. 1 of his 4 managed teams on RT Sports that year finished tied for the best W-L record in the league, with more total points than the team he was tied with, but thanks to their wack seeding criteria, that team didn't make the playoffs. And that's why Axe Elf doesn't play managed leagues on RT Sports any more. The vast majority of Axe Elf's managed leagues from the late 90s to the current day have taken place on Yahoo and ESPN, but it's more fun to laugh at Axe Elf for one year's worth of Draft Masters disasters on a single site and ignore his record in managed leagues on other platforms for the past 20 years.
  10. Dude, if I'm making a point about the reliability of Axe Elf's predictions in the past, then past predictions that worked out are the best evidence. Now go sober up, and I'll talk to you tomorrow.
  11. You and RMJ both work for the Department of Irrelevancy?
  12. Poker is a more reliable source of income. If fantasy football became work, it wouldn't be fun any more; I'd rather keep it at the hobby level.
  13. Those were Axe Elf calls in 2016. Crowell finished as the RB15 and Cousins was the QB5.
  14. There's another WR who fell victim to Tyrod Taylor the Toadmaker. Benjamin was a 70-catch, 1000-yard, 8-TD WR for two full seasons in Carolina; when he came to Buffalo, he caught 16 balls for 217 yards and 1 TD in six games.
  15. Axe Elf has higher standards than you. That's a big reason for Axe Elf's success right there--nobody believes him when he says Kirk Cousins will be a top 5 QB or Isaiah Crowell will be a top 20 RB or any of the other kerjillion longshots Axe Elf called the summer before they took place. Maybe if more people made the sensible choice to target Axe Elf's touts, he wouldn't find it so easy to skate to multiple Championships year after year.
  16. If I have to walk you through it, the point is that Taylor is a backup-caliber passer--that's why the Bills ran so much.
  17. Now ask yourself, do teams employ a run-first, throw-less offense when they have a HOF-caliber QB, or when they are trying to hide one who has back-up caliber passing skills? What DO they teach in these schools...?
  18. You axed who Tyrod was throwing to; if Watkins was hurt, it wasn't him. Robert Woods and Marquise Goodwin were not on fantasy rosters until they escaped Taylor's offense.
  19. In which he had more TDs (8) than any season of his career, barring the year in which he had 9 in Tyrod's first season as a starter.
  20. There is no consistency among Kickers (outside of what Gostkowski did for three or four years in NE). Last year's "league-winner" could be picked up off of waivers a few weeks into the season. I did it myself in several leagues. This year's best kicker could be the 3rd one off the board, the 12th one off the board, or a free agent to start the season again; and if the best one isn't, a top 3 Kicker will be. I'm not wasting a pick before the last couple of rounds on the same (or worse) fantasy production that I can get from the waiver wire.
  21. I guess you quoted the wrong person here? Axe Elf's lifetime ROI in fantasy football is about 275%.
  22. Guys who became fantasy assets once they were on different teams.
  23. I dunno about top 15, but I do know that Edgerrin James, Jamaal Charles and Le'Veon Bell have done pretty well in his schemes.
  24. Actually an auction draft tends to favor the more skilled players; it's the random order of a snake draft that puts everyone on an equal footing and allows the newbs to compete with the more knowledgeable owners by simply clicking the next name off the player list.
