  1. Load up on quality and quantity early workhorse RB’s. They’re invaluable as trade currency as well as needed depth in the war of attrition. Also handcuff your stud RB’s when there is a defined backup who has RB1/2 potential. Having Ekeler, Samuels and D-will helped me breeze to one title after losing Gordon, Conner and Ware. Avoid age and injury risk like the plague in the first 8 rounds to drastically reduce bust factor.
  2. James Conner 2018 Outlook

    I don’t know how Conner looks in practice nor do I know how healthy he is after several days of extra treatments. I won’t know until later...today. But what I can say with supreme confidence and absolute certainty, right now at this very moment, without any supporting evidence, especially the most important indicator of any players health, that which gets announced mid-day every Wednesday - is that I definitely would not start him. Even if that Wednesday announcement could uncover that he’s been back up to full speed and has no limitations. I will most definitely make up my mind right now that he cannot be started. </sarcasm>

    What the hell does that quote even mean? Get the trainer pizza so we can ensure he’s ready? What does “He’s played A LOT” mean? Practiced? Overall snaps this year?
  4. James Conner 2018 Outlook

    Any Conner/Samuels owners with Thursday Night Football RB’s in play? Is the Connor/Samuels tandem worth benching JJ or DWill tonight? I’ve got to imagine there are many others in this situation.
  5. Short keeper trade WHIR

    1st and Aaron Jones is tempting. I can’t believe you’re out of it with Conner and Kamara though. You might just want to hold those two as they’re top 3-5 guys overall and locks to be studs next year. I’d hold. They might just help you run the table this year.
  6. Should this trade be vetoed?

    Fair deal
  7. 12 team standard league. Right now am at a point where Mixon or Jones and Alshon or Hilton are sitting. I’m thinking I need to trade Mixon/Jones for a top RB or one of the two plus Hilton/Jones for a top RB or WR. Or do I just be happy with a 1st place team up 200+ points and play matchups and keep the depth in case of injuries. QB-Mahomes RB-M. Gordon RB-Conner WR-Hopkins WR-Hilton Flex-Mixon TE-Ertz Bench RB-Aaron Jones WR-Alshon Jeffrey RB-Austin Ekeler RB-Jaylen Samuels QB-Baker Mayfield
  8. Check out the new Rotoworld Beta Site!

    I'll just share what I felt the need to email. And I'm not the guy who emails my thoughts, but I just hate the new format...I also agree there's too much white and too much space where you have to scroll below the fold for a mile to see all the front page info. Seriously???? Why would you change to this format. You’re popular for the ease of use of your website. This interface is awful and terribly spaced across your page whereas Rotoworld has always been great since the beginning because it was easy to navigate quickly and very concise. Now, I look at Rotoworld and for the first time, I literally can’t figure out where anything is at. I just don’t understand why after all these years, if it ain’t broke, why you feel the need to do a full overhaul. I know sometimes the inclination is to let your designers and developers earn their money, but this seriously flies in the face of why Rotoworld was such a great aggregator of fantasy sports news. This thing just looks like you’re trying to be ESPN or Bleacher Report – and it doesn’t suit you. Please do not change to this format. And if you do, please at least leave the app alone so we can still have one simplified aggregator of fantasy news without all this fluff.
  9. Aaron Jones 2018 Outlook

    I don’t get what Rodgers problem is. They kept showing his face after every time he threw a garbage uncatchable pass and he was all shaking his head like a jag that they didn’t go-go-gadget-arms and catch it before it bounced six feet in front of them. His body language was BS towards his teammates and it was invariably his fault every time. When did this guy become such a prima donna d!ck?
  10. How is Conner injured? He wasn’t even playing!?!
  11. Dez Bryant 2018 Outlook

    The thing is, the opportunity was there to nab this guy for a waiver wire spot, FAAB or for free. There’s no risk. If there’s a possibility that he can catch lightning in a bottle for half a season, it’s worth a flyer. Anyone who says, “nope this guy is done and not worth dropping a minimal bench player, extra DST or whatever”, is just being obtuse. He either burned you the last two years, or you don’t like mouthy WR’s or you missed out on him. Either way you’re being obtuse. Anything is possible at this point. He could totally suck or he could be a WR2 or just anything in between. But to just say he’s not worth a pickup, is being obtuse. Being obtuse doesn’t win championships. The guy who got burned by Randy Moss who said I’ll never draft him again looked dumb when he broke records in New England. Or all the dopes who ignored AP’s fresh legs on the preseason and said he was either undraftable or a late round pick at best. It’s a low risk move that could bring upside. He was a must add. Now let’s see how it plays out in New Orleans. For winning teams it’s a no brainer insurance policy for the end of the season and the playoffs. Nobody you pick up on the wire in week 10 should be expected to carry your team. Why would this be any different?
  12. Dez Bryant 2018 Outlook

    People left Randy Moss for dead after his Raiders stint (pretty much same age that Randy left Minnesota and Dak took over - stats were similar for both before). T.O. Was probably written off multiple times. Vick was considered done by many after Atlanta. Even this year AP was cooked. Just because he’s a bad guy doesn’t mean he can’t string together half a season on fresh legs in the best offensive system he’ll probably have ever played in. His time with Dak Prescott was marred by injuries and at the time people still thought Dak was a good QB. When Romo left, Dez’s production immediately dropped. He’s was still always rosterable other than when he was hurt. He’s 29 and was a physical specimen just a few years ago. Is he worth a speculative flyer? Sure. I’ll take him and let others roster Devante Parker, Chris Hogan, John Ross or Maurice Harris. My money is on the guy getting targets from Drew Brees and the one not getting defensive attention that’s being focused on MT, Kamara, Ingram, Hill, etc. nobody is counting on top production but it’s certainly worth the flyer. I’d rather he produces on my bench than someone else’s lineup. You’re only taking a flyer to catch lightning in a bottle for part of a season. You’re not signing him to a 5-year contract.
  13. Dez Bryant 2018 Outlook

    Flyers are flyers. Funny how everyone left AP for dead. There’s a chance Dez has a little something left in the tank with fresh legs and one of the best passing offenses in the NFL. There are plenty of low end trash WR’s that are owned in fantasy that I’d never start unless my team was decimated. I’d rather take a flyer that Dez could find magic for a half season over some hopeless never start WR5. That is IF Dez was signed. At 29/30 he’s still younger than a lot of productive guys. He’d only ever been halfway decent with Dak, but really the drop off was likely due to health and more likely the loss of Romo. I’d pick him up as a speculative add if I had someone who I have no plans to start anytime soon.
  14. Josh Gordon 2018 Outlook

    Yeah, notice how I said I don’t know how they’re doing it. Stats and record aside, they don’t look like the numbers they’re putting up. But somehow they win and end up with the stats.
  15. Josh Gordon 2018 Outlook

    I’m not sure how the Patriots are doing it. Gronk looks like junk. Brady’s all over the place with crap throws bouncing five yards in front of receivers or missing five yards wide. Looks like his deep ball has little to no accuracy. Even worse, Brady looks like he’s not even interested out there. He played that Bills game like he had somewhere else to be the whole game. That game was torture to watch. I’ve seen most of the Pats games since Gordon joined the team and have noticed that Gordon isn’t even getting looked at as a read in the progressions most of the time. He looks more like a decoy out there like when Megatron was playing hurt. Problem is, Gordon should be fully healthy by now. The Pats getting JG has been a disaster. I’d expect him to be only marginally worse on the Bills. And if I’m going to keep ranting, what’s so damn complicated about this offense??? Has anyone been watching all the dynamic RPO stuff happening around the league? This playbook looks like a basic b!tch when I’m watching the plays they run.
