  1. Posted this in the weather thread but might be worth posting here. "I've heard a lot of talk about bad weather in Jacksonville. Looks like winds of 16-17 mph with gusts up to 25 mph. Light drizzle. Winds blowing SW, WSW. TIAA Bank Field oriented N-S with about a 10° tilt clockwise. So wind will be blowing not quite N-S across the field, maybe diagonally at times but at least not horizontally." Thats what I could gather online, I live in Atlanta and its quite mild up here today. Seems like the conditions aren't ideal, but they could be a lot worse. From what I've been reading on here I'd think conditions were much worse than they are. How do you guys feel about BDN's floor today?
  2. I've heard a lot of talk about bad weather in Jacksonville. Looks like winds of 16-17 mph with gusts up to 25 mph. Light drizzle. Winds blowing SW, WSW. TIAA Bank Field oriented N-S with about a 10° tilt clockwise. So wind will be blowing not quite N-S across the field, maybe diagonally at times but at least not horizontally. Not sure if that info helps anyone else make a decision, I am looking at Foles or Darnold. Found an interesting article on QB performance in poor weather if anyone is interested or hasnt read it. https://towardsdatascience.com/football-weather-diving-into-the-effects-of-weather-on-nfl-qb-performance-f0edb420623d
  3. Well the bad catch rate lately has been because defenses are taking note of one of the most talented young players in the NFL and shutting him down. Unfortunately a stagnant offense does little to pull attention away from him. I'm counting on volume, talent, luck, blind hope and maybe a passing TD today to save my playoff run. Godspeed boys.
  4. Anyine else rolling him out as a flex today? Good matchup and has been alright even without Frat Stafford throwing to him.
  5. Tough call. The future usage of Drake is a little bit of a question mark but I think there should be enough room for both guys to eat. If Drake does good the next few weeks I'd be more worried about DJ's role going forward. Parker has a "safer floor" but idk if we've even seen his floor as a starting rb yet. If it was me I'd go Drake. He's hungry, healthy, in a good spot and ready to prove himself.
  6. I am also sitting Marvin Jones this week. I'd say unless you're really desperate to fill your roster or you feel like your only chance of winning is a boom/bust guy going boom, start coleman and re-evaluate next week.
  7. He looked great last night, probably the only bright spot in that offense. If only Rivers wasn't constantly overthrowing his recievers into coverage, MG would have had more snaps and maybe an extra TD. Only thing that worries me was that helmet-to-helmet hit on their second-to-last drive, after that he was on the sidelines with his helmet off and I dont think he went back into the game. Anyone have any clarification on that?
  8. Hey all, So my kicker is R. Gould, I really like him as a kicker but I don't have much expendable bench space. The guys I'm considering dropping this week are: ---------------- K. Drake (like him as a hold asset in case he gets traded, but useless in Miami and has a bye week 5 so may stay on the wire) T.J. Hockenson (considering holding for 1 more week in case he shows value, but would only be a trade asset as I own Kelce) C. Hyde (good backup/stash RB which is my main weakness but potentially expendable) R. Gould (currently the #5 kicker in points and I like Gould, think he is a consistent kicker in a position to do well this year) ------------------- Any insight is appreciated, Hock and Drake are definitely the 2 I'm thinking of dropping the most. My team is 1-2 and the projected spread for this game is 1 pt so I dont want to play a K on bye
  9. Just whats in this thread. The fact that his doctor recommended surgery and he decided to tough it out. Seems like the kind of thing that, if it doesnt keep him out longer than 2 games, could be the kind of lingering injury that limits his productivity, snap count, or causes him to miss games down the line. He may very well come out of this just fine but I personally am cutting him for a reciever that will theoretically be back at the same time (with comparable volume and talent) and hasn't had abdominal surgery recommended recently.
  10. The Tate owner got tired of waiting and dropped him to waivers yesterday, I dropped DJax for Tate this morning. Feeling good about it, they should both be back week 5 but I don't like what I'm reading about this injury and what it could mean for DJax's snap count RoS. Good luck to those that hold him or pick him up, I think he can still do well when he comes back if he stays healthy.
  11. The zeke trade isn't bad for you at all but I do like the idea of trading ekeler for someone like Tyreek or AB.
  12. Yeah the 2nd trade sounds a lot better for you - trading Jacobs specifically. Definitely don't get rid of Chubb. As far as fair, lol no, Jacobs/Gordon/Sutton for Sony/Juju/DK is not fair to the other guy, but if you can convince him that it is then more power to you. If he isn't interested in Jacobs, see if you can get a better RB than Sony out of him for Chubb. Sony is the kind of guy that can lose you weeks as easily as he can win you weeks. It's not like you're hurting so don't do anything too knee-jerky
  13. Keep Robinson, he's less of a question mark than Darwin. Plus you've got Mostert, he should be flex/rb2 as long as Coleman is out, and if he makes enough of an impact he may earn more of a role for himself going forward... dude looks great running the ball for sure. Granted Darwin could end up being one of those crazy league-winner type of guys but I'd rather go for consistency and proven aptitude.
  14. Hey all, Desean Jackson owner here, looking at waivers this week and see a couple of intriguing options for WR - G. Tate and N. Agholor. 12 team, .5ppr redraft. My roster: QB: J. Goff RB: A. Jones, P. Lindsay, C. Hyde, R. Mostert, M. Gordon WR: D. Adams, T. Hilton, M. Jones Jr., C. Sutton, D. Jackson, T. McLaurin TE: T. Kelce, T. Hockenson D/ST: Jags K: R. Gould I'm thinking of dropping either DJax or Hockenson for Tate. Agholor is an interesting option but I see him as more of a fill-in and I think I'm deep enough at WR that I can stand without replacing DJax for a couple of weeks. My worry is that this DJax injury may linger past week 5 and/or potentially limit snaps later in the season - I think Tate may be a more reliable option in general for week 5 and beyond, though with a new QB this may be DJax's year. The other option I see is to drop Hockenson for Tate. As a Kelce owner I don't really need Hock, but hear me out - I'm weak at RB, TE is looking bad so far - if I can hold for a couple weeks, he puts up some numbers, I pair him together with a solid WR to trade for a RB1/2. Solid logic? I have Gordon coming back but who knows exactly when and in what capacity that will be. Thoughts? Ideas I'm not seeing? Should I just hold onto the cards I already have? All insight is appreciated, and though my knowledge is limited I'll try my best to help in return.
  15. I think Kupp is your best bet. I'll probably be flexing DJax this week but I don't really have a better alternative. I'd only go DJax if you really think you'll be playing from waaay behind and need a potential boom candidate. However I think Kupp is in line for a big game anyway and you have to expect some regression from DJax's revenge game last week.
