  1. Seattle is available again! Domt123 didn't bother to set his lineup last week, so we're moving on in our search for an active owner. We still have lots of activity with this league, even in the offseason. If you're still interested, the Seattle team is open (again!)... let me know!
  2. Thanks for your interest. We may have another opening soon -- another team failed to set their lineup this past week. Will let you know if that owner has bailed, or if any other openings come up.
  3. You've been added! Please login ASAP and update your team info. Be sure to review the league message board to catch up, as well as the Rule Book! Any questions just let me know.
  4. I'll never understand how or why someone would pay $40 and suddenly vanish off the face of the earth, but here we are. We have 1 open team (Seattle Seahawks) in our 12-team, salary cap, dynasty, devy league. It's not the best team in the league, but has some players to build with. We have 11 other guys who are very responsive to trade offers, and it's easy to rebuild in our active offseason schedule. At the moment we need someone to step in immediately and take over the Seattle Seahawks (you can rename this franchise if you like). Below are links to the league format and details. PLEASE do not sign up if you're planning on bailing after the season. We'd like to keep as many owners from year to year as possible! Please respond below if you're interested. Thanks in advance.
  5. Collins is a DNP in practice today. DeLance had a reception and one carry last week -- in line to get more work this week. On a side note, how is it that Rotoworld doesn't even have DeLance listed on the Ravens roster?!? Everyone sleeping on this dude.
  6. RB DeLance Turner, Ravens Dude had a good training camp and preseason, just got called up from the practice squad with Dixon out for an extended period (again). Collins has averaged 3.4ypc so far, Buck Allen just 2ypc. Turner is good enough to (at worst) get a few carries per game, and at best overtake Collins if he continues to struggle. If Collins goes down, Turner will be the #1 add. Stash him now while you can get him for free!
  7. He's worth a dart throw, but hard to see any upside unless he's moved to WR. With Boyle, Williams and soon to be Hurst competing for playing time and targets, he's not going to get enough snaps to even be rosterable in deep leagues. Looked great in preseason -- I just wish they could find a way to get him more playing time.
  8. A subpar offensive line can be well masked by a QB with a quick release and good mobility, which are 2 of Peterman’s strengths. We’ve seen guys like Marcus Murphy, Tavaris Cadet and Keith Ford bust some big runs this preseason — and we haven’t even seen McCoy yet.
  9. Maybe not consistently before this season, but it's pretty obvious he can make those throws. He seems to have made some improvements to his game based on what he's shown so far. Lots of QBs have deficiencies -- Peterman is no exception -- but my point is that even if he gets Buffalo off to a hot start, he'll never get the credit he deserves after face-planting last season.
  10. Similar situation here... My cool story bro: I went RB heavy in my dynasty draft, and then flipped Fournette for Tyreek plus a 2019 1st. Let's not mistake Watkins for a stud WR. *When he's been on the field (big bold asterisk there) operating as the clear #1 in Buffalo (ie very little competition for targets) he had his best season. I don't doubt Watkins has the talent to put up a few big games in KC, but it's looking like he's going to be the 3rd or 4th option in the passing game.
  11. No he doesn't... he gets rid of the ball quickly and makes some pretty decent throws, including a lot of comeback and sideline route as evidenced by the TD throw at the end of this clip. The Peterman everyone saw last season is NOT the Peterman of 2017. I'm not saying he's the next Peyton Manning or anywhere close, but I'm pretty sure everyone will be surprised about how solid he is. Lots of people picking Buffalo as a dumpster fire this season are going to be disappointed. I wouldn't be shocked to see them win at the Ravens week 1, and win 8+ games this year.
  12. With Gillislee gone, Burkhead and Michel banged up already, he’s lookin like a nice pickup to me. Seems like he’s been around forever but only 25 yrs old — just 2 yrs older than Sony. Plus he has a double-digit TD and 1000yd season under his belt. Who’s to say he isn’t tabbed as the lead dog week 1?
  13. McCarron was never seriously being considered as the starter. He was demoted to 3rd string prior to the trade. Rotoworld hacks seem to think Allen deserves to start week 1, but Peterman has been pretty decent and has more experience. Wouldn’t be surprised to see him get the nod. Nothing official has been announced though. Either way, I believe the Buffalo offense is going to be better than advertised. Those of you banking on the Ravens D week 1 will likely be disappointed.
  14. Buffalo did the exact same thing last year. Williams just ain’t that good and doesn’t play special teams. He’s a replaceable talent.
  15. I like Justin Evans and Chung out of that group. Evans is entrenched at FS and racks up lots of tackles and a few INTs. Chung gets a lot of TE assignments and is always on the field. Although I tend to shy away from Pats defenders, because any injury information is often extremely scarce.
  16. Hard to see him not making final cuts. Richard & Washington are pretty much the same type of player... Marshawn is in his last season, if he can stay healthy (free agent next yr)... Doug Martin is going on 30 and averaged less than 3 YPC last year (also a free agent next yr). I picked up Warren as a bench stash -- but would not be shocked to see him not only make the team, but eventually be the starter based on what he's shown so far, and Oakland needing a RB beyond this year.
  17. It just depends on what capabilities you're looking for. MFL is by far the most customizable solution out there. The amount of commish controls and management tools makes it very easy to set up any kind of format, scoring, lineups you want. It's extremely reliable and has a pretty decent support staff. My only complaint is the default graphic interface and available skins. If you're using those, it's pretty archaic compared to the other major competitors out there. But MFL also allows you to customize the site layout with your own HTML and graphics. I've custom designed all of my leagues, so each one has its own logo -- and the teams have their own custom icons with a consistent style. From a programming and graphic design standpoint, it's the best option.
  18. The difference is that Ajayi has only missed about a week so far. Baldwin has missed all of preseason AND practices. Go back to page 4 when his injury was first reported in early August and you'll see no one particularly concerned. Granted both guys could have the same injury for all we know -- but we DO know Baldwin has been out much longer and admittedly won't be at 100% this year.
  19. We’ll since we’re just throwing out possible diagnoses, here’s another one. The patellar tendon often tears at the place where it attaches to the kneecap, and a piece of bone can break off along with the tendon. When a tear is caused by a medical condition — like tendinitis — the tear usually occurs in the middle of the tendon. Move along... nothing to see here!
  20. You’ve said this twice now... Do you have a source to back up your tendinitis claim?
  21. In preseason?!? Come on now. Tell me how many of these guys are missing all practices and preseason games leading up to week 1: Stefon Diggs, Adam Theilen, Tyreek Hill, TY Hilton, Larry Fitzgerald, Amari Cooper, JuJu Smith Shuster, Demaryius Thomas, Chris Hogan, Golden Tate, Allen Robinson, Brandin Cooks, Marvin Jones, Marquise Goodwin, Michael Crabtree, Jamison Crowder Those are all guys *with a similar (or lower) ADP* that I would take ahead of Baldwin at this point. For an early WR pick, I'd prefer a safer option. Maybe a few of these guys have a slightly lower ceiling (if Baldwin was/is 100%) but none of them to my knowledge have sustained a 'sore knee' that's keeping them sidelined already. If you've played fantasy football for any length of time you'd realize that if you fill up your team with the high injury risks, suspended players and Josh Gordons of the league, it might not work out so well.
  22. Well... if he doesn't need to be out there, then there's a couple dozen other WRs I'd rather have than Baldwin, that are completely healthy and getting reps. And BTW if you've had 600 sore knees, you might want to get that checked out. My suspicion is that it's an injury that could linger into the regular season, which is never a good sign for any top player. I don't think it's a bold statement to say that he comes with some (obvious) extra risk.
  23. He's the ultimate wild card this year. When you think of the targets missing from last year, Edelman's suspenson, Tom Brady's passing offense, and Patterson generally being an unknown in terms of receiving ability, he could be anywhere from Randy Moss to Aaron Dobson. I'm not buying the assessments that he doesn't have any receiving ability. He's playing with the greatest QB of all time now -- So I think Brady is certainly capable of masking a lot of his WRs deficiencies. If Patterson's athleticism outweighs his technical issues, he's going to end up with a lot of playing time. It's not out of the question for him to have a 1000+ total yards with some big games. I'd love to have him as a WR 4/5. He's got the upside of a WR 2/3.
  24. Did you see Belichick rave on about Patterson last night? He could hardly contain his excitement! Look at his face light up when he talks about how much progress Patterson has made!!
