  1. Mike McCoy 2018 Outlook

    A team taking on 2 new QBs, a new HC and OC all in the same season is a recipe for disaster to begin with, but for McCoy to completely ignore the formula that gave the previous regime some success running and passing with David Johnson is inexcusable. It's one thing to be a bad team, it's another to constantly not put any of your players (OL, QB, RBs, etc) in a position to succeed. The Giants have terrible OL and QB play right now too, but their coaches aren't on the verge of being fired, because at least they try to get their playmakers the ball.
  2. Is this collusion?

    No, it sounds like you're just a very competitive player in a very non-competitive league.
  3. Le'Veon Bell 2018 Outlook

    What does that have to do with Le'Veon Bell's analysis of the situation?
  4. Le'Veon Bell 2018 Outlook

    Joking aside that is kind of what I'm driving at. His agent isn't exactly Bill James here and Le'Veon's pre-summer tweets and quotes show that he clearly wasn't abreast of the numbers. So what happened? Somebody got in his ear with this stuff and if I had to bet on whether the analysis came from one hard to find article written by Football Outsiders in 2007 or one of the 10,000 fantasy articles written on the subject I know where I'd put my money.
  5. Le'Veon Bell 2018 Outlook

    Not in the reductive way the other poster was implying when he said that fantasy analysis isn't relevant because Le'Veon deals with real money.
  6. Le'Veon Bell 2018 Outlook

    I don't think those analytics are that relevant without fantasy football: Football Outsiders published "The Curse of 370" back in 2007 and while they were talking productivity in terms of X's and O's every article pretty much since then has been fantasy related. Just google "400 touches football" into Google and you'll see what I mean.
  7. Le'Veon Bell 2018 Outlook

    Money and contracts have nothing to do with fantasy football, so we shouldn't even be looking for correlations there. My question is without the surplus of analysis and forecasting which have unearthed the history of being more injury prone and less productive following a 400 touch season would Le'Veon and his team have made this decision. Remember, right after the deadline he said he was going to have his best statistical season and tweeting that he can't wait for 9-9-18 back in May. Fast forward to August after a few months and hundreds of articles about his fantasy potential and risk are released, many of which present the idea that he's the No. 1 pick because of his guaranteed volume and others that he would bust because he fits the mold of overworked backs in the past who puttered out in this season. His agent goes on the radio and when asked why Le'Veon's stance shifted between what he said before camp and what was happening now his agent said "clearly something has changed," What could that be? The Steeler's offer never changed. The only thing that could have changed is his perception of his situation. I'm not saying that the Rotoworld forum is the reason why Le'Veon isn't playing right now, that was just a joke. But I won't dismiss the idea that whatever got into his head didn't at least start in the world of fantasy football analysis.
  8. Le'Veon Bell 2018 Outlook

    You don't find it relevant that Le'Veon's agent cited not wanting to get 400 touches, a number which really emerged in the football lexicon because of fantasy football analysis and forecasting?
  9. Le'Veon Bell 2018 Outlook

    How much are we in the fantasy community to blame for the Le'Veon situation? Honest question. Without fantasy football forecasting are all of the problems projected from Le'Veon following up another 400 touch season as evident? Does the idea of him playing poorly this year, wearing down, and being at risk for injury ever make it to his camp with valid enough statistics to warrant this kind of response from him without fantasy football analysts, pundits, and forecasters?
  10. Le'Veon Bell 2018 Outlook

    Their bye week is next week, week 7. The one thing we know about Le'Veon is that he doesn't want to play more than he has to without a long term deal sured up. I think week 11 is still the best target.
  11. Le'Veon Bell 2018 Outlook

    Agreed. Knowing what we know about what Bell wants week 8 seems kind of arbitrary.
  12. Le'Veon Bell 2018 Outlook

    Le'Veon is not going to get traded, because despite the rumors nobody is going to pay 850K/week for a guy who has said openly that he doesn't want a big workload until he gets a long term contract. He's going to go back to the Steelers, split time with Conner, make a huge spectacle of himself and face an open market next year to a much colder reception than he though he'd have.
  13. Did I Screw Up 9 Man 9 Cat Roto?

    Thanks for your input! It's an auction league so I just spent a lot of money on those two. What if I traded Collins for D. Fox?
  14. Cats are: Pts, 3s, Rebs, Assists, Stl, Blk, FG%, FTM (no ft%). I went in figuring I'd punt 3s since it's often tied to FG% which we don't use. Am I too deficient in other categories though, or is this team good enough to ride without making any drastic trades/moves? Thinking about dropping Fournier for D. White. Giannis Towns Gobert Steven Adams John Collins Kyle Anderson Hollis-Jefferson Cauley-Stein Elfrid Payton Caris LeVert James Johnson Patrick Beverley Evan Fournier Trey Burke Marcus Smart

    Is this "source" similar to the source that said he'd be there on Labor Day, then that Wednesday, then that Saturday, then the following Monday, the that Wednesday, then that Saturday?
