  1. Rex Burkhead 2018 Outlook

    I always find it comical that people are so quick to jump off a guy after 2 games into the season. You realize we are only 1/8th of the way in with plenty more ups and downs to go. PS... Gillislee had 4TDs through the first two games last year, had 1 the rest of the season. To me its pretty simple, Brady did an interview on Monday and basically said that it was a bad game on all fronts offensively but they are trying to figure things out, improve every week and by mid to late October they should have a handle on what their team is and isn't and who their personnel and packages are going to be. The Pats do this every year, the first few weeks of the season are a crap shoot and they don't do anything consistently from week to week, they try different packages and players see what works, adjust and move forward. Part of that is trying out the new RB and seeing how things click with him vs White vs Rex... nothing is determined as far as roles go at this point IMO. Last year Lewis was barely involved in the first 3 weeks, presumably easing him back in from his injury, from week 4 - 10 him and Gillislee basically split rushing touches and Lewis was the more effective runner and took over, because that what worked best for the patriots to win. If you drafted Rex, White or Michel and have owned a patriots running back before, you know the ride you signed up for. If this is your first rodeo get ready to be disappointed on two fronts, performances in games like Sunday and then a game maybe in the next two weeks where you sit him and Michel is the one that rides the pine, its just how the Pats work and don't even get me started on the fumbling. Rex will have value in plenty more games this season, he will also put up a dud here or there. The Patriots are going to play to exploit the other team and with 3 different backs all having different skill sets they are going to use the one that fits best with their scheme that week. I'm holding on to both Rex and White till we get to weeks 4-6, at that point it will be fairly obvious to see what roles each will have and will cut bait where needed. If Michel outperforms Rex and holds on the ball he could be the Lewis of last year, no way to predict it IMO

    Less than 30 min but I don’t play in a ton of leagues. I go through the “scoring” tabs on Monday and look for guys that are available, flag and then put claims in on Tuesday.
  3. Waiver Wire - Week 3

    Jake Butt looked pretty good yesterday. With TE being as thin as it is he may be worth a preliminary stash... Keenum put up decent numbers with Rudolph in Minny and Butt looked much more athletic than Rudolph

    I think some part of this is right. I would agree that the league is a bit of a joke and they are playing for fun BUT they are also playing for money. To me if there's a monetary prize, all things should be equal. I don't think the LM and girl who did the transactions were cheating, I think they are amateur players and don't understand why that was wrong in most peoples eyes. I wouldn't play in the league but she does so I'm helping but also using it as a teaching platform. This was a good lesson as to why you address something before its to late. She was annoyed she lost due to the move and I think if the same scenario went down again she would pipe up.

    Best ball automatically sets the best lineup possible based on your teams performance that week. You draft multiple at each position (usually bigger rosters 18+) and then let the season play out. No need for transactions or "mulligans" in this format. As far as add/drops that's not typically how it works but on ESPN/Yahoo you have the option to cap the # of team transactions each year so you could set that at 16 and allow each owner to make one add/drop each week.

    Allow you to cut down bench size as the season goes on? I primarily play on ESPN and know its not an option there but thought that would be an interesting way to play especially since the beginning of the season is such a cluster **** trying to find out what guys are for real or just had their week. Would look something like this: Draft 18 roster slots (8 bench slots) Week 2) Cut down to 7 bench slots Week 4) Cut down to 6 bench slots Week 8) Cut down to 5 bench slots Week 12) Cut down to 4 bench slots Could be interesting as some teams would have to cut relevant players before playoffs, could come back to bite them.

    Lol its been one game...
  8. Underthrown... Shoulda been pick #2! Does have a quick release though!
  9. To me I think it would depend on whether or not your defense gets penalized for an offensive pick six, fumble recover for a td or a special team scoring play. Does your league take points away from a defense that's not on the field if points are scored? EX: Did the Jets lose points when the lions scored on the pick 6 first play? I think if they did lose points then they should be rewarded for the fumble recovery but if not then they should not be rewarded. Must work both ways IMO.

    Annnnnnd she lost 153.3 to 149.5 with 35.2 points coming from Conner. Chalk it up to a FF learning lesson, told her she shoulda made a fuss!

    Strategy would be to start him till he breaks, then pick up Kelly. He may be 33 but he doesn't have the mileage of a 33 year old back, hes missed almost 4 full seasons with injury and suspension. Im optimistic but as a mid-late round flyer this could be the steal of the draft...

    Kittle would be a better bet IMO, available in 47% of ESPN leagues.

    lol That's so frustrating to me... Im not saying every position needs to be equal but at least make it on the same planet. Saints D giving up 42 points = -19 Big Ben + 1 TD + 330yds - 5 TO's should = something less than 10pts in order for that to make sense IMO, definatly not 22! You're better off not starting a defense unless they put 50+ points with a performance like the Ravens had today.

    Nailed it.
  15. Ezekiel Elliot 2018 Outlook

    It could get worse but you're right this was a week 1 matchup vs a very good defense and Dak made some awful decisions. I don't get why the kept rolling Elliot out to the left hand side and then Dak would escape right and run away from his outlet. Maybe it was coaching but I put a big lump of responsibility on Dak for this one as well and that worries me more than the coaching...
