Re: advise about orphan purchase

I think it would depend on your plans for this year, and the size of this league. With Brees, Olsen, and Elliott as a base, that's plenty strong in a large league. The WRs are obviously your weak point, and maybe one of the Crowell/Gordon/Murray crew is worth a WR piece, and hopefully Kevin White de...

Re: Future Rookie Draft Pick Value

How many teams in the league? Just thinking also about where your second pick will be. It might depend on which of your three teams we're talking about, but generally speaking, I'd want top six, to secure a player from the tier that I think could also be of significant use this year (Elliott, Dixon,...

Re: Dynasty Fliers (not rookies)

Is Spencer Ware too far down? Or not far enough? Just trying to get a feel for where to aim with this... other RB - Zach Zenner? WR - Jeff Janis? J.J. Nelson? Sammie Coates (if you think he can do enough during Bryant's suspension to carve out a season-long role)? TE - Clive Walford? Niles Paul?

Re: Draft Simulators on Drugs

On the other hand, paying for things (via Fanspeak's "Premium" which allows viewing of stats, and the making/receiving of trade offers) may or may not have produced something more "realistic" - assuming an NFL team was able to pull off 6 trades and give up a future 6th-round pick...

Draft Simulators on Drugs

Okay, I get it, you use something that's free and you get what you pay for. But still... Fanspeak's mock NFL draft simulator, using Matt Miller's most recent draft rankings (maybe THAT's the problem), drafting for my Cowboys, and you tell me, how happy would just about any team be if they could pull...

Re: Keeper Cuts for 2016 Team

I sent an email to DS asking the same question, although in a different format. I asked how they would rank these players in a dynasty format. (Please note this was fairly recent, on 12/12, but before I added Carlos Hyde from the waiver wire). Matt Schauf replied: Marshall White McCoy Gordon Murray...

Re: Because it's dead in here...

Looks like a pretty even deal to me. Corey Coleman will likely end up at #2 in my dynasty rookie rankings. And at least before finding out landing spot, I'd rank him a tad behind Benjamin in the overall WR rankings. Yeah, unless the owner at 1.01 somehow lets Elliott slip through, I see nothing wro...

Anyone around to offer an opinion?

Auction keeper league, $200 cap, player values rise $5 a year ($ shown are for 2016) -- 1/2 PPR, 16-20 player roster, start QB/2 RB/3 WR/TE/K/D Would you give up Jamaal Charles ($36) and Randall Cobb ($24) for Mark Ingram ($13), Thomas Rawls ($20) and Josh Gordon ($6), assuming I could get the deal ...

Re: curious about DS opinions

4. Looks like Gordon's ADP is sitting in the late 3rd in MFL10 ADP so far. That's a couple of rounds too rich for me when you consider the risk that he doesn't get reinstated. And even if he does, the fact that he hasn't played football in over a year adds more risk. This ADP blows my mind, both be...

Re: No Winners Thread This Year?

Three leagues, combined 30-15 record. Winning 2 out of every 3 games was the goal, so that was good! In my oldest league (next year is the 20th) I was the defending champ, started 6-1. Fell to 6-5, lost Le'Veon Bell, changed my team name to the Dumpster Fires, and was convinced this was my worst tea...

Keepers for 2016

So I completed a surprising championship run in one of my auction leagues, and our league rules allow me to sell players for 2016 draft dollars, though I doubt I'll be as successful as last year when I sold Calvin Johnson and Mark Ingram. At any rate, was curious how you'd rank these guys in a leagu...
