  • 12 team H2H dynasty
    3-point Shots Made (3PTM) .5
    Points Scored (PTS) 1
    Offensive Rebounds (OREB) 1.5
    Defensive Rebounds (DREB) 1
    Assists (AST) 1
    Steals (ST) 2
    Blocked Shots (BLK) 2
    Turnovers (TO) -1
    Personal Fouls (PF) -1

    my team looks like this
    PG Chris Paul
    SG Bledsoe
    SF Klay Thompson
    PF Griffen
    C Jefferson
    Util Monroe, Afflalo
    BN Hibbert, Gallinari, Dante Exum, Anthony Bennett, John Henson, Jodie Meeks, Jordan Hill, Brandon Knight, Paul George

    As you can see, my team is pretty young overall and I really like my starting 5(would have been better with George, but oh well).
    Ive been trying to package Afflalo and Hibbert for an upgrade to no luck, and I think my bench is pretty weak.

    Is there anything I can do to improve?

  • Is absolutely horrific.
    After the TD pass by Cassel in the first drive of the Vikings Pats game, Minnesota QBs have thrown NINE interceptions, and exactly ZERO TDs in 5 games. If there is any NFL record for most interceptions thrown in a row, Im guessing the Vikings QBs topped that number easily.
    And I actually thought they would have a chance at the playoffs this year lol.

    Maybe. But you have to remember, Cleveland and Buffalo dont have a good passing game to build there game around and they have to depend on the run to keep them in the game.

    Did I accept terrible trades for a keeper league?

    I dont know about that Wraith... Nelson is sure looking good and since there are many good QBs in the league Ryan isnt worth a keep IMO.
    Id keep Foster or Morris along with Nelson or Gordon, but who knows where they will be among their positions at the end of the season?

  • Is there any chance that he keeps the starting job even after Mathews comes back?
    Hes obviously made himself known and he will get carries even if hes the No.2 back, but as someone that drafted Peterson I desperately need a starting running back that can produce regularly.

    Started him in 2 of my leagues because my starters were on bye... Good thing is that I was reminded how inconsistent he was and I wont make the mistake of starting him again because of a couple of good games.

    That depends on who you have on your team other than these players.
    Here are my thoughts on these trades
    Trade 1
    Good trade considering the fact that you had Jamaal Charles. Best handcuff in fantasy.
    Trade 2
    Foster and Morris are 2 legit backs so you pretty much traded a 1 great (injury prone) back and handcuffs for 2 good backs.
    I like Foster as much as Charles and Wright is also a plus so I think you won huge on this trade.
    Trade 3
    Ryan is slightly better than Stafford, but I think Jeffery is way better than Allen. Gore is probably slightly better than Ivory and I think he has a slight less chance to break down. Not a bad trade, but I still think the Stafford side wins because Allen has been a bust so far.
    Trade 4
    Great trade since you are probably gonna make the playoffs this year and Gordon will be a HUGE factor.
    You also get to keep him next year, and you only gave up a bust. GREAT trade.

    So, if you sum it up
    Got Foster, Morris, Wright, Gore, Ryan, Gordon
    Give Sankey, Charles, Ingram, Stafford, Jeffery, Ivory

    If you put it this way, you probably improved at all of the positions.

    Overall, nice trading.

    Pick 2 to start

    by Rick Oct 9, 2014 5:18 AM
    Rick Rick Oct 10, 2014 4:15 AM Flag

    Hurns and DMC then?

  • Did he lose kick return duties?
    My league counts return yards and his value would take a huge hit if he has.


  • 0.5PPR
    Pick 2
    Darren McFadden, James Jones, Allen Hurns

    I was leaning towards DMF and Jones, but do you think that the Raiders will run more with Tony Sparano as the new coach, which not only boosts McFadden but means less chances for Jones?
    Help me out on this one.


  • McCoy, Peterson, Chris Johnson and Darren McFadden in a 12 team league

    Good thing is Im still(somehow) 3-2

    Rivers for Stacy

    by JAH Oct 4, 2014 7:45 AM

    Give me 1 reason that you shouldnt do this offer if you dont need Rivers?
    Why would you even have someone that you dont need?

  • 10 team H2H league
    I was offered Spiller and DeSean Jackson for Jeffery, so I countered Jeffery/Doug Martin for Kelvin Benjamin/Alfred Morris.

    Do you think this helps both our teams?
    my team(1st place)
    QB Ryan
    WR Jeffery, Julio, Nelson
    RB Bell, Asiata
    TE Bennett
    K Crosby
    DEF San Diego(stream)
    BN Stacy, Moreno, Doug Martin, Sproles, Kendall Wright, Nick Foles

    other team(2nd place)
    QB Rodgers
    WR Cruz, Benjamin, Julian Edelman
    RB Gio, Morris
    TE Larry Donnell
    BN Donald Brown, CJ Spiller, DeSean Jackson, Vincent jackson, Ryan Mathews, AP
    K Parkey
    DEF Philly

    I think my team is flawless right now but I do lack a solid RB2 and Im not a believer of Jeffery.
    If my countered trade is accepted, do you think my WRs would be too weak?


  • Team A gets Roddy White, Fred Jackson and Gronk
    Team B gets Calvin Johnson, Isiah Crowell

    Eli Manning

    Rick Rick Oct 1, 2014 10:20 AM Flag

    So hes not a bad option?

  • Dont get me wrong, I dislike Manning as much as the next guy(in fasntasy, anyways) and hes very difficult to predict, but should I be starting him this week?
    He looked pretty good against Washington last week and Washington is actually in the top half in the league in passing yards allowed per game.
    He also played decently against Arizona and Houston, and the only bad game he had was against Detroit(2nd in passing yards allowed)
    This week, he plays the Falcons who are 30th in the league in passing yards allowed per game, despite the fact that the only good QB they have played is Brees(they also played Glennon against Tampa, Dalton against Cinncinati and Bridgewater against Minn)

    Should I start him this week?

    Nothing is going right for my team

    Rick Rick Sep 29, 2014 8:18 AM Flag

    Thanks, but my team has been pretty lucky because my opponents have been scoring the 3rd least points.
    Is there any way to turn this around?

  • 10 team league currently 1-3
    QB Brees
    WR Patterson, Edelman
    RB Charles, Lacy
    TE Niles Paul
    W/R/T Pierre Garcon, Brandin Cooks
    BN Vernon Davis, Emmanual Sanders, TY Hilton ,Zac Stacy, Knile Davis
    K Crosby
    DEF Atlanta(stream but totally missed this week)
    D Kuechly

    What am I doing wrong?
