Yeah the flex would have added another dimension I feel , but call it a lesson for next time :)

 

I'm hoping that for better or worse they realise the only course of option is to stick with Wilson, if he's benched again after last season it could destroy his confidence (he seems to not have much self belief as it is). 

I actually tried changing it to a flex but apparently you can't change roster positions midseason. Well you can't remove a position atleast. I doubt i will add another position in.

 

Anyway 3 WR's is probably better than 3 RB's because there is a lot more WR's than RB's who score a good amount of points (well any points actually)

On the whole I'd agree, but flex does you the chance to play the match up game if your RBs are all playing weaker teams. 

 

After my Wk1 showing though... what do I know? :P

Yeah that's true. They would in theory play better but at the same time my RB's Mcfadden and Lynch weren't playing the best of defences and they still did bad.

Unfortunately, I won't be able to access my team all season but our good commissioner has kindly agreed to handle my affairs on my behalf.

 

I'm still very open to trades but I obviously won't be able to see them on my team page so feel free to PM me here on the forum and I'll get back to you with a response. 

Hi Josh,

 

See post# 40 in this thread.

Are you able to create a new (your own) yahoo email account?

Unlucky.

 

Need Peyton to get like 100 points otherwise i'll lose my matchup.

 

Vick, for all my distaste in taking him has done me well this week and Wallace(:()/Bryant too. Think I might have a W fingers crossed. 

 

Across my FF teams people I left on the bench:

 

Mike Wallace, Coby Fleener, Lamar Millar, Tavon Austin.

 

People I thought would be better to start:

 

Eddie Lacy (x2), Miles Austin, Jared Cook

 

Felt like every move I made went to heck this week :P

Well it certainly looked like you did win.

 

And I know how you feel. Really tempted to drop Steve Smith but then he'll get like a 100 yard 2 TD game the week i do.

 

I'm the same for all fantasy sports.

Why thank you, with this win under my belt and momentum on my side I'm now projected by Yahoo to have a massive 1-12-0 record for the season.... 

 

:) Anything I can do to help.

Though I did ask you nicely to keep it down again for one more week.

I'll have to check my projections again. I'm sure it's lovely.

Wow Minnesota's defense got smoked.  I havn't even looked at my fantasy football and I already know I lost.  I had 3 starters in the 49er's game and none of them did much.  And of course the week I decide that Joe Flacco is a good person to start because Tom Brady has crappy receivers, Brady somehow manages a good game. 

 

The fantasy football gods hate me.  Oh well.  I'll keep trying, I did get a win in week 1, so at least I won't finish winless.

Had quite a good start to the season imo, how about everyone else?

 

Won my first game but lost 2 in a row now.  Most of my decisions on who to bench and start seem to be bad although I suppose the positive thing is that I don't think this has ever cost me a game.

 

I'm hopeful for this week as I had both Anquan Bolden and Frank Gore starting and they both had good games against the Rams.  

 

Ray Rice say's he's planning on playing on Sunday, so I'm taking a risk and starting him.  

 

I've benched TY Hilton for Brian Hartline, so I expect TY to go off for a career day on Sunday while Tannehill decides to throw every ball towards Wallace.  But I'm not gonna change my mind this time because Hartline has been the most consistent scoring receiver I've had besides Julio Jones.

    • The Colts spent big on resigning players this past offseason.  However, I see a lot of roster turnover heading into next offseason with limited cap space.   Round 1 - Edge Princely Umanmielen (Florida) - In four years has 24.5 TFLS including 14.5 sacks.  In 2023 he ranked 4th among Power Five edge defenders in pass-rush win rate (22.2%) and his 42 run-defense stops since 2022 are tied for second. 98% a clone to Laiatu Latu.  Project resign Dayo but Ebukam/Lewis are on the bubble while Genard Avery is a free agent.   Round 2 - WLB Harold Perkins Jr. (LSU) - As a true freshman led all LBs in Power Five linebackers with a 91.0 pass-rush grade and second among all LBs in the country with 18 QB knockdowns (sacks/hits) and tied for second in the country with 4 *.  Since 2014 era, that ranks third best behind Rueben Bain Jr (freshman) in 2023 and Myles Garrett in 2014. EJ Speeds replacement.    Round 3 - S Keon Sabb (Alabama) –From backup to a starter while at Michigan, he made the most of his 360 snaps.  As a sophomore Sabb was only one of six Power Five safeties to earn an 80+ grades in both coverage and run defender.  Sabb replaces Blackmon.   Round 4 - TE Caden Prieskorn (Mississippi) – Started 2023 with a knee injury missing the first three games.  A Memphis transfer, Prieskorn 449 receiving yards were 9th most among all CFB TEs.  His 1051 receiving yards and 527 YAC since 2022 both rank fourth.  Both Mo Allie-Cox and Kylen Granson (project resign) are upcoming FAs.   Round 5 - LB/SAF CJ Taylor (Vanderbilt) – 6’1” 201 pounds. Taylor spent 55% of his snaps near the defensive LOS and in the box in 2023.  In 2022 he was 3rd among SEC safeties with an 84.9 PFF coverage grade, while his 10 pressures ranked 1st.  In 2023 he was third among all LBs in the conference with a 61.8 passer rating allowed.  Reminds me of Jaylon Carlies whom the Colts just drafted in R5P151.  Carlies is currently listed as 3rd string MLB.  Segun Olubi is the backup behind MLB Franklin and has proven enough to resign after this season.  Projected cuts SLB Cameron McGrone (6’1” 236 pounds) (2024 FA) and SLB Liam Anderson (6’3” 236 pounds) (2024 FA).  Add another 30 pounds to Taylor move to SLB.   Round 6 - IDL Joey Slackman (Florida) final 2023 defense grade while at Pennsylvania, 90.1 (3rd), 92.8 run defense grade (1st), pass rush 71.9 (91st), and a 60.5 coverage grade.  Averaging 48.5 TOT a season along with 4 sacks.  Built like Grover Stewart at 6’4” 300 pounds and has the chance to take over Stewart’s job after a year of mentorship.  Places Davis on the bubble and replaces Taven Bryan.  See how well Slackman does moving to Florida versus much stronger competition.  Could see his draft stock improve.   Round 7 - RB-KR Ismail Mahdi (Texas State) –After his first 6 games in 2023 he had 9 KO RET for 280 yards averaging 31.1 yards which ranked 5th as a KR during that timeframe.  In 2023 rushed for 1331 yards on 223 carriers averaging 6.0 with 10 TDs.  Also proven back that can catch averaging 260 yards a season on 25 catches.  Trey Serman (2024 FA) and Tyler Goodson (2024 FA).   UDFAs LS Byron Floyd (PITT) junior – Floyds 81.7 grade this season leads all FBS LS.  Of his 41 LS on both punts/kicks only one has been charted as off-target.  Does have ties to Colts new DL coach.   WR De’Corian Clark (UTSA) – been compared to Alec Pierce.  Got elite athletic skills.  Made Bruce Feldman’s Freaks List at #94.  In HS he jumped 24’8”, hit 22.2 MPH on the GPS and clocked a 4.31 shuttle time.  Also ran a 4.49s-forty time, had a 10’1” broad jump, and a 35” vertical jump while power-clean 345 pounds.  
    • Interesting….   I think Pittsburg getting rid of their 2023 QB room, Pickett and the backup and bringing in Wilson AND Fields for next to nothing is (IMO) the best off-season transformation by any NFL team including the Colts.      Wilson AND Fields for almost nothing?!?   Yes,  please!    FWIW:  Fields is being used in camp as a returner.  Punt for sure and I think kickoffs as well.     
    • Sometimes you win some of these close games and sometimes you lose. We won a game similar to this in Game 3 vs NY when Nembhard hit that 35 foot game winner. That saved our season because NY could have went up 3-0 had that not gone in. Take the good with the bad and move on.
    • #10 is gonna make a huge difference on offense!!!
    • I'm gonna go out there and say 12. I have very high expectations for this team. If we can be competitive with Minshew then I expect a major step forward with hopefully a healthy AR.
