hey guys, I was without power all weekend after a tornado hit here in Ottawa. 

Wasn't able to get my lineup set and Mosley was left in. Not sure when he was declared inactive but if I could maybe get a grace for this one? 

 

I'm cool with a warning, but wouldn't mind not having one either haha

 

For the record, you didn't get a warning for Mosley being in because he wasn't officially ruled out until he was made inactive that Sunday.

 

I completely agree with Drake's rationale.  Considering the circumstances, you wouldn't have been penalized.

Looking for RB help with another Ine going down to an ACL. Would move my '19 firsts and/or young guys, want to keep core in tact.

@JMak and I have a trade:

 

Detroit Diesels get:

Lesean McCoy + Chris Ivory

 

Need Some Wood? gets:

Jay Ajayi

Corey Clement

The better of either Soulcrusher's or Ironcock's 2019 first round pick.  (Commish - I'm assuming we can do this?)

 

JMak to confirm.

The Ballad of James and Rico

 

On August 13, 2017, the Detroit Diesels attempted to select with the 11th pick of the 3rd round of a rookie draft Dallas Cowboys’ tight end Rico Gathers.  There was only one problem: Gathers wasn’t a rookie.  The ensuing re-pick is one that won’t soon be forgotten in the history of Where Legends are Born.  The story is retold below in lyrical form, and is to be sang to The Ballad of John and Yoko.

 

[Ultimately, Conner was dropped by the team who picked him with the re-pick, which I admit takes something from the tale.  I thought about making it a "boy meets girl, boy gets girl, boy loses girl to an @Iron-cock" sort of story (which was more realistic) but I've taken some poetic license here.]

 

In any event, I present this as my paean to Rotoworld’s best dynasty league.  I hope you enjoy it.

 

See this giant crossing the middle
Jumps and catches just like a Bear
The preseason beat
They like Rico so sweet
Wish they’d keep quiet about this whole affair

 

Christ, you know it ain’t easy
You know how hard it can be
The way things are goin’
Someone will snake him from me

 

He’s gonna fill the void left by Witten
All those targets are up for grabs
He plays with such Power
Forward march every hour
He’s gonna be the next Gates or Graham!

 

Christ, you know it ain’t easy
I need Gathers on my team
The way things are goin’
I’m gonna fulfill this dream

 

Can’t believe he fell to the late third
How did all these other guys pass?
Oh no - they say he’s no rook!
This stud that I took!
He’s actually part of the Sixteen Class!

 

Christ, you know it ain’t easy
Just wanted to draft this T-E
I guess that I know now
Why he “fell” down to me

 

Still smarting from the loss of my Suave prize
Feeling all the taunts of the league
Replacement selection?
For all my dejection
I still got to make another pick here, think!

 

Heading back to dynasty websites
Wish I had a hug from my mama
Feel I’m in hell, cause
No name is ringing a Bell
Wait – what’s with Le’Veon’s latest drama?

 

Christ, you know it ain’t easy
This draft is turning up rough
The way things are goin’
I’m gonna draft a handcuff

 

Took this backup guy out of Pittsburgh
Looks like this kid James Conner can ball
Between the tackles he’s boss,
Catches a Big Ben toss,
I knew it’d all work out after all!

 

Christ, you know it ain’t easy
Best to be a bit lucky
The way things are goin’
The last laugh’s coming from me
The way things are goin’
Got a number one R-B.

El Iguanodon and Need Some Wood have a trade to announce.

 

NSW trades the 2019 first round pick quoted above, NSW's 2019 2nd round pick, and Mark Walton to El Iguanodon for T.Y. Hilton and Gio Bernard. 

 

@megamoviejohn to confirm.

Congratulations to @Ironcock on essentially ending my season.

 

My trade block is officially open.  I'd like to keep my long-term assets together but if you see something on my squad that can help you this year and you want to send me a piece or pieces for the future, hit me up by PM.

Good game.  Of course I would have rather won last year!

What a miracle my win last week to beat Soulcrusher 180.70 - 177.27 to save my season. Took a wild performance from Amari, a garbage performance from Rodgers, and a couple TD bombs from Mariota to close out on Monday night (made a last minute change of Bortles for Mariota after it was announced early enough Sunday morning that Mariota would play Monday night, otherwise it would have been a loss with Bortles).

Now I just have to beat the last place team (One For The Road) to make the playoffs and if I can't do that, then I don't deserve to make it. The irony is with a win over this team, it will be One For The Road's 10th straight loss and they will bump my 2014 record setting losing streak of 9 (currently tied) but at the same time, it will guarantee them 1st Overall in next years draft (assuming they didn't trade the pick). The things you have to endure to get 1st overall in the draft.

 

All of this doesn't matter if my team chokes and either Legendary Cock or AHERNSHOTME2 wins. Playoffs are starting this week for us "on the fringe" teams.

Detroit Diesels finished last place at 1-12 last season. Then we did this:

Trade announcement:

 

Detriot trades:

Saquon Barkley
2.01
2019 Soulcrusher 2nd rd

 

Soulcrushers trades:
Christian McCaffrey 
Travis Kelce
Brandon Cooks
Kwon Alexander 

 

 

 

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.

He definitely won that trade but his team went 11-2 the year before so he had a solid team before. His bad year he traded away Antonio Brown and basically went to into temporary rebuilding mode and scored getting Saquon. Initially traded you Kelce (who he got back basically for free) and Duke Johnson for Golladay who got better this year. Got Edelman back who was out all year last year. Gave up future picks for Schuster. Also fleeced Need Some Wood of their 1st rounder for some inconsistent injured Eagle RBs. Good plays all round.  

 

As for DerrickHenrysCleats... I’ve never seen a team be ripped apart so badly and can’t even get last place to save it. Pray for that team.

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.

I didn’t believe in McCaffrey either and figured Fournette would be better at 2nd overall but it’s not looking that way.

It's a very nice rebuild and season by Jmak.  McCaffrey has a realistic shot at setting the single season record for receptions by a running back (it's 102 by Forte,  McCaffrey has 80 right now).

 

Long term I still think I'd rather have Saquon over McCaffrey, but that's just me.

 

Also, screw Eli Manning for sucking so bad he couldn't break 10 points against the Eagles on Stafford's bye week which kept me out of the playoffs.

Congratz  @JMak ! Great year, that trade early was huge for you!

Thanks man. Feels good to win in such a competitive league. 

 

Took some big swings that paid off and some that didn't (Martavis for a first? Face palm.) Looking forward to defending the ship next year!
