    Yep, targeting him in all of my drafts.
  2. Alvin Kamara 2018 Outlook

    I must say, as much as I get annoyed at these forums sometimes, there’s something about seeing all the familiar names and avis 5 months outta the year lol

    This cant be empathized enough. Most of the time these threads turn into massive pissing contests between truthers and doubters lol.

    I was hoping the negative outlook on AZ’s offense and Barkley hype pushes DJ down to me at 6. Doubt it after last night though.
  5. Derrick Henry 2017 Outlook

    Murray has been active and played and gotten more carries than Henry, even with knee injuries this season. You think a illness will keep him out? 😭
  6. Getting ready for the playoffs...

    Fantasy Football is indeed a game with a ton of variance and uncertainty. Sixteen games is a tiny sample size. Players get injured, players run hot / cold, even something completely unpredictable or unknown is a possibility. "Any given Sunday" is applicable to fake football as we all know. The "luck" and "bad luck" people speak of refers to the fact that we cannot control what the players do. We do all this research and do our best to start the best possible lineup, but in reality we cannot control the outcome at all. It's like every time your player gets locked-in to the lineup, you're "all-in" pre-flop in a hand of poker. We all know the story - your stud lays an egg in an ezpz matchup, and you lose by a couple points. Stats say this happens all the time. The rational side of our brain knows this fact. However, it's hard not to feel a type of way about it. Control is a big part of why FF owners feel this way (rage lol). It's like getting sucked out on in poker when you shoved with the best hand. In FF we "bet" on players performing well. Sort of like the stock market, or an extremely sophisticated horse-race bet ha. Also, it's very easy for us to get self-absorbed in the misery of our own bad luck, but I guarantee if you look closely at the history of your leaguemates most have been through the ringer too mate. That being said, FF is far from being void of skill. Drafting, waivers, team / roster management, analytical skills, research skills, all heavily contribute to W/Ls. Likely more than poor, outlier performances at the end of the day. Hell, all of you here doing research everyday have an edge over the owners in your league who don't. You have to put yourself in the best possible position to win in a sea of uncertainty and it's easier said than done.
  7. 11/26/17 Panthers vs Jets Game Day Thread

    Funchess already has 9 targets lol

    Well I was asking the Panthers fan specifically, we've all seen your thoughts / concerns ITT Im not that worried about Olsen. In fact I think it's very possible it helps Funchess. I personally was iffy about Funchess being the only viable rec option on the Panthers. Olsen will open up the offense more and draw coverage. Plus Olsen was never really a go-to redzone / GL / jump-ball guy like Jimmy Graham. However they do use Funchess for these type of looks. Benjamin was a viable and decent fantasy option with Olsen. WR2 with WR1 upside. I don't see why it won't be the same for Funchess.

    What are your thoughts and outlook on Funchess?
  10. Samaje Perine 2017 Season Outlook

    Wait so you're telling me that extrapolating a rookie RB's future / career production based on his first couple of games, isn't sound reasoning? Get your logic outta here!
  11. Stefon Diggs 2017 Outlook

    Just acquired him in a trade in my 16 team. Kind of excited tbh. Granted, my only other WR2 was Kelvin Benjamin, so just about anything would tickle my fancy at this point I guess the negative vibes in here are from people who thought they had a top 7 WR on their hands earlier in the year. Diggs will still get his ROS.
  12. Devontae Booker 2017 Season Outlook

    Have you forgotten where you are? This is the RW forums.
  13. Jamison Crowder 2017 Season Outlook

    I guess because people know what they have in him? You definitely scooped a steal if he was just sitting there in PPR, prob shouldn't have been available. He's the WR to own in WASH IMO. Especially in .5 or full PPR.
