  1. I'll see your Vince Young and raise you a JaMarcus Russell.
  2. Unlucky for me. I'm the one who didn't make the playoffs. What's that line?
  3. Playing spoiler? Do you guys have a league rule regulating the acquisition of players by teams already out of the running? Our league doesn't, but a situation has arisen. There is a team that has been knocked out of contention for the championship. This team still had the majority of their FAAB though, and last night placed the winning bid for Jaylen Samuels. Seed #2 cried foul. He said that the new Jaylen Samuels manager is petty and shouldn't be placing waiver claims. (This is also a case of sour grapes, as #2 seed tried and failed to acquire Samuels). However, there is no rule currently in place banning such a move. Thoughts? As commissioner, I'm perfectly fine with this situation. Playing spoiler is a perfectly valid motivation to play this game, and the Jaylen Samuels team said they made the move partly to poke the #2 seed, the biggest loudmouth and smack talker in the league. Plus, I am naturally wary of over legislating solutions, usually finding them unnecessary and knee jerk reactions.
  4. The game was well out of hand when Breida got pulled. It was 31-3, or 34-3, but the Raiders hadn't scored since their opening drive field goal. Given that the Niners just lost Mostert to a broken arm, and McKinnon to a torn ACL earlier in the year, it made perfect sense to give mop up duty to Alf. Seeing Morris run tonight I think it's safe to say that Breida's stock is going up.
  5. Lost by .14. Breida literally lost it for me this week with his -.5 contribution.
  6. It could be worse. You could have drafted Bell.
  7. I don't think AJG is an upgrade over AB, not this season. I'd stand pat.
  8. If you drop him, he'll be snatched up immediately. Try to trade him first.
  9. It really matters on your team. In my league of record, I don't have any byes until week 8. Carrying Zuerlein until then isn't any hardship.
  10. Right, I overlooked Barkley. That's it though. Hunt looks good, but he'll disappear from time to time in this Chiefs' offense. He's just a piece, albeit an important piece in that finely tuned machine. CMC? Maybe in PPR. DJ? He's underperforming, though I hope he can turn it around. At least he's healthy (relatively). That's more than you can say about Fournette, Cook, Devonta Freeman, and Mixon. If Chubb becomes a starter, I can see him giving his owners a boost into the playoffs much like Kamara did last year.
  11. RB2? Look at the current running back landscape. Gurley, Zeke, Kamara, Gordon. Those are the only true stud RBs this season. With the way he's looked there's a good chance Chubb would be a middling-to-back end RB1 if Hyde got injured.
  12. Should be. Otherwise the Rams would have designated him as IR eligible for return.
  13. Points are points. I'll take them wherever I can find them.
