Re: DraftKings and FanDuel - A waste of money?

People who are armed with automated tools to enter hundreds of contests a day and run scripts to update their lineups based on all sorts of stats will destroy average joes who thing they can compete because they won their local fantasy league last year. This is why I just play small stakes on these...

Re: Jimmy Graham

I hate saying "drop him" without any league-specific context. The TE position in 2017 looks a lot like the TE position in 2016 - a s--t show. You've got a a couple guys that look reliable right now - Gronk, Kelce, Ertz. Olsen and Eifert are out. Graham and Jordan Reed is dinged up (what el...

Re: thoughts on Doug Martin ?

For teams in need of help at RB, it's going to be hard to bench Martin in week 5. It's a home game against a NE team that's been surprisingly poor defensively to start the year. They got gashed by Hunt in the opener and allowed a ton of points to Houston (?!?) at home yesterday. It's obvious that Ja...

Re: Gronk For Hunt?

Another "No" vote. Positional scarcity makes trading Hunt a hard pass for a "onsie" position like TE. Even for the top TE in the game.

Re: Week 2 Flex Pick

Hey guys, 3 WR PPR scoring, any suggestions or tips this week? RB Riddick @ NYG RB Allen vs CLE WR Decker @ Jax WR Wallace vs CLE I'm leaning Riddick this week, but something tells me to let Allen Fly this week at the home opener. I think I want Riddick in this spot. We know precisely what his role...

Hits, Misses, and Regrets

With draft season over, and week 1 in the books I think it's useful to look at the things I'm happy I did while drafting and some other spots where I'm maybe a little nervous. Full portfolio disclosure (all $ leagues, but no high stakes): Three season long leagues, 2 redraft (1 PPR and 1 standard) a...

Re: Good to see Gronk with so many targets

A ton of marquee players this week had uninspiring performances. I don't know what to take away from any of that other than it's variance and matchup driven.

Re: Good to see Gronk with so many targets

I don't know. I mean, he makes that TD grab and the whole stat line looks different. Goes from 5 ppr pts to about 13. That's just variance.

Re: My draft your thoughts sharks

Do you HAVE to have 2 QB's? If I have a Rodgers / Brady or even Russell Wilson, I am probably not starting any other QB over them regardless of matchup. Don't know who was available with that 12th round pick, but I would rather take a flyer on someone with some upside there and deal with bye weeks ...

Re: 5th Pick in 0.5 PPR Draft - Help with Mock/Selection!!!

I think I start Beckham or AJ Green there. Beckham's injured ankle sucks, but he's got monster TD upside that's almost unparalleled. I think I'd fade the 2nd tier RBs after Bell/DJ are gone. I'd be inclined to look for Demarco in round 2 and then fade Montgomery in favor of a WR in round 3 (think K...

Re: 1st Home Draft

I don't think there's a player I've soured on more than Gore over the summer. In June/July, I thought he was one of the safer values out there. But with Luck's return not assured and the Colts' starting center out, I just don't see the PPR value for a guy that no longer gets used in the passing game...

Re: Keeper League Draft

I think you played it fine. There really was so much up in the air (and there still is) regarding the suspension that it was pretty difficult to make an informed decision. I suppose you could have played around but I think he could have easily been taken at the 1-2 turn before your 2nd rd pick. Othe...

Re: Last draft of the summer...

Thanks. Elliott was drafted in the 1st round in this slow email format. It kicked off on the Friday before Labor Day, and rumors were swirling about the suspension being reduced or rescinded. Otherwise, I agree with your take on drafting Zeke. I nabbed in my home league at 3.02. I started that draft...
