  1. Welcome to the annual Big ben thread. His full name is Ben Roethisberger - although in fantasy football circles, he is more commonly acknowledged as, Ben "The guy who throws a million passes to WR1 Antonio brown" Roethlisberger. For the uninitiated, here's a picture of what big Ben currently looks like: As you can see, he's old and past his prime, but he still looks pretty slim and stands proudly, looking down on all those inferior quarterbacks. So what can we expect from Big ben in 2018? Well, after threatening the public with retirement, Big Ben, surprise surprise!!! is back for yet another NFL season. Believe it or not, big Ben is extremely motivated. The steelerz are stuck in what's commonly referred to as, the "superbowl window"; a short, but sweet period of greatness when a team deludes itself into thinking it can actually win a Superbowl while ignoring it's swiss cheese defense. Superbowl prospects may float in the clouds, but big Ben's fantasy football prospects are firmly planted on the ground. Our hero returns to an offense featuring an illegally good WR1 in Antonio brown, and an emerging social media star and part-time book publisher Juju Smith & Schuster. The steelerz have some other receivers too, but the darkness created by Antonio Brown's shadow makes it hard for me to read their names. Meanwhile, big Ben's sidekick, Leveon Bellcow Bell - the Antonio brown of RBs - continues to hold out for a $20 million dollar contract that he'll never, ever get, ...but given his desire to constantly flaunt his abs on instagram, we are assured that he'll be in peak physical condition come-September. In 2017, big Ben began the season by kick-starting the Jacksonville jaguars' dynasty; throwing 10 interceptions to their now-famous defense. Following this disaster of a game, big Ben shrewdly implemented a strategy called "throw it to Antonio Brown, not the other's team defense, you fat disgusting f***". The strategy paid rich rewards, as big Ben had an extremely productive 2nd half of the season, finishing QB8 in standard leagues. big Ben's exceptional run of success almost made fantasy owners, and steeler fans alike, forget that he lost a 2nd straight time to the Jacksonville jaguars in the playoffs. Oh Ben, you're full of surprises. What does the future hold? Well, if you're waiting on a QB, you could do worse. If you like seeing a QB throw 4 touchdowns in back to back games, you're in luck. If you like QBs that produce 4000 yards with 30 inconsistently distributed touchdowns, big Ben is definitely your guy. If you're still confused over whether Jameis winston or Marcus Mariota will ever become start-able QB1s -*psssst...they won't!* - big Ben is a nice fall-back option - providing the same amount of excitement and bone-headed plays at a lower, more reasonable ADP. Good luck to you all, and God bless America.

    I had no faith in McCaffrey becoming a stud running back. At least not this year. That was a mistake on my part. It's the reason why he won the trade. If Anthony miller - who was the 2.01 in that trade - becomes really good, then Barkley + Miller makes it a bit closer.
  3. Where Legends Are Born

    Detroit Diesels finished last place at 1-12 last season. Then we did this: Now he's 10-3 and the first seed, riding an 8 game winning streak. What a turnaround. I'm thinking it's his year.
  4. Giovani Bernard 2018 Outlook

    Lol, good on him for making way.
  5. Leonard Fournette 2018 Outlook

    Wasn't he 100% to start the weekend? He had a full practice on Friday after a lengthy lay-off. Its not like they rushed him back. Maybe he just has weak hamstrings?
  6. Kenyan Drake 2018 Outlook

    He's not an average running back. But Miami's offense is below average. I didn't watch the last 2 games, but the statistics tell you everything you need to know: - Converted only 5/19 times on 3rd down. - A total of 24 first downs. Teams have that many in just one game. - Played fewer than 50 snaps in both games. - Barely 20 minutes of possession in either game. - 19 penalties. That's pathetic. I'd like to think this won't continue, because this is about as bad as an NFL offense can play over 2 weeks.

    If anyone needed confirmation on whether Warner would be the starter going forward, Malcolm Smith played just 33 of the 75 snaps.
  8. Keelan Cole 2018 Outlook

    Alright, if you know how to look up their numbers from the last 2 weeks, what exactly stopped you from looking at their numbers since they came into the league?
  9. Keelan Cole 2018 Outlook

    I was comparing their talent, so i'm not too bothered about their current production. Obviously Keelan has more "proven" production, he's played in more games. Keep in mind that Westbrook currently plays in the slot, while Keelan plays on the outside, and these roles could easily change in the future. Westbrook averages more targets per game.
  10. Keelan Cole 2018 Outlook

    What makes Cole better?
  11. IDP Rankings/Talk

    I feel absolutely terrible for missing out on him. He's phenomenal, reminds me of Lavonte David from a few years ago. He'll dominate in any IDP format. Warner has earned his spot at 'mike', he's playing extremely well. Lee is mediocre, he'll make way for Foster. Easily their best combination.
  12. Where Legends Are Born

    Huge week for @JMak with 313.77 points. League record is 318.55.
  13. Aaron Rodgers 2018 Outlook

    If it was a weaker, out of conference team, he'd probably sit out. This is a rivalry in the same division, with greater implications. This is also a "revenge" game for him on a personal level, as the Vikings were the ones who injured him last year. He'll play.
  14. Joe Mixon 2018 Outlook

    This was the best game he played last year.
  15. IDP Rankings/Talk

    He'll lead the league in tackles this year. I'm starting him ahead of Kendricks in one league, Lavonte david in another. Fun fact: https://twitter.com/ChiefsReporter/status/1039147732009672705
  16. Best QB/WR Stack 2018

    Josh Allen to Kelvin Benjamin. #RocketArm #BombsAway
  17. Oakland Raiders 2018 Outlook

    Those 2 had great rookie years. Both of them were seen as 'can't miss' prospects coming out of college. They turned out to be busts, mainly due to injuries, but they weren't bad picks at the time.
