Even though I hate that song "Born To Be Wild" by  Steppenwolf, since most radio stations use that number as the best road trip song ever it's not.

 

You get 4 thumbs up for creative ingenuity bravo4460.  :thmup:  :thmup:  :thmup:  :thmup:

While Born To Be Wild is a great song it has worn itself out. I will take Radar Love for the road trip song. But then I am partial to Golden Earring. Steppenwolf has some great tunes like Don't Step on the Grass Sam or For Ladies Only. Both groups are legendary in their own way. John Kay is the original bad butt rock singer.

I'm always Team Naptown, and I always have one team a year where I draft all Colts players.  That team is usually my best team too.

 

It used to be fool-proof, just draft Manning, and then whoever he is throwing the ball to.  A touchdown to Wayne would get me double points.  The Colts' D would give up some yards and points, but they were always good for a few turnovers, so decent points.

 

This seems to be working with the current team as well, although drafting TRich was a huge mistake that led to a revolving door at RB for me all year...

 

This year is looking good - Luck, Gore, Allen/Fleener, TY, AJ, Vinatieri is money and Mathis is back on D.  Flex is the tricky spot, Dorsett or Moncrief?

If an all Colts team is your best team, then you're probably pretty terrible at fantasy football.  haha

I've won two leagues during the Manning era.  I usually always make the playoffs.  Go back and look at some of the numbers from past years.  Colts players score a lot of points.  I usually have a stud RB from another team, and a solid bench.

 

The only time I struggle is during the Colts' bye week.  I scramble to get players and hit that waiver wire during bye week.

 

Plus, like I said, I do that with one team while I draft BPA in other leagues.  Any more than 3 teams to manage and it starts to get too time-consuming.

Actually, I finished 1st in 7, 2nd in 2 and 7th in 1 of my 10 fantasy leagues and all of them featured multiple Colts players... all of them with Luck last year were easy winners most weeks, though it got dicey in the playoffs because he sat most of the last 2 games.  I picked up Allen or Fleener on every team and Bradshaw and TY on most of my teams easily as well as Luck who no one seemed to want in all my drafts.  I also had at least one amazing starting RB, Demarco Murray, who was a budget pick ironically last year, was on 5 of my teams and I had LeSean McKoy on 4 of the others.  I used Bradshaw for all the games before he got hurt and looked like a genius and had picked up (luckily, not that I expected them to excel honestly) either Le'veon Bell (remember he sat the start of the season so few had interest in him and I had picked him up really just to cover up for bye weeks) and lucked into Lacy on the others.  So I was loaded and won most of my games by huge margins.  Colts players did me right and I guessed right quite a few weeks on when to play which Colts TE. 

 

Lucks value isn't too high this year either, I will likely pick him up again... but I am worried about ALL the receivers simply because there are so many of them to throw to I think they'll water each other down, so though Luck is a no brainer, even over an RB, the Colts receivers and TE's this year are a big risk.  I am not sure Gore gets enough yards to choose him over a better younger back but I will try to get him later down the draft for depth and maybe he'll surprise us.

As long as the players you have (all one team or all one bye week) are good, high schoring players, then you only really have to worry about one week.  But  if you end up going 12-1, i wouldnt complain.

Nice PAC56! Trent Fell Down & We Really Don't Want Him To Get Up. Too cruel? Yeah, I don't think so either. 

Not Colts related at all, but my defending champion squad is called Lambda Lambda Lambda, and Louis is my profile pic.

Any excuse to invoke a classic movie like "Revenge Of The Nerds" is a good thing SS. "We've got bush. We've got bush!" LOL!

My team name is the Crushing Colts... It should be noted that I made that name up in 1995, when I was 12 years old.. This will be my 21st season as the Crushing Colts and I couldn't be more proud! I brought home my 3rd championship last year.. 3 in 20 seasons... Not that great, but that's fantasy football.

    • Contreras had a bat flip that went 40ft in the air on his first HR. Got hit later in the game, White Sox pitcher Manager and Pitching coach got ejected. He also flipped bat after getting hit. He hit another HR too. Javy also hit a double LH 
    • The covid IR rules are helping this team a ton. Imagine if they were the old IR rules. We would of had to cut some players because guys like Burton would not of went on IR. I hope they keep some of these rules because teams can keep more of their players instead of having to cut them.
    • Yep. He was loved by every analyst too as a single high FS, and looked good his first year with the Colts. He'll be a bargain for someone IMO if he can stay healthy.    What's also weird though, is that Flus hinted that he wanted to play more man last year. Aside from the KC game, didn't seem like it happened much. And we drafted both Rock and Blackmon from heavy man systems. I think Willis was too. I just don't understand to be honest what Flus is really all about yes. Was he waiting to get a 3T and pressure up front to go more man? He has that now. And if not, not sure I understand Ballard's draft choices as they seem to be converse to Flus's scheme.
    • With his injury history, I doubt there are going to be many teams out there offering to dish out money like he'd be a guaranteed starter, and I would doubt many teams are going to be throwing long-term deals at him.  He has to prove he can stay healthy for a 16 game season, something he hasn't done in 4 years (7 games, 14 games, 13 games, <2 games).     So, it wouldn't be too surprising (IMO) if Ballard offered him a 1 year deal with a low guarantee and some incentives built in... but he probably knows he's a better fit in a different scheme and can get a similar deal elsewhere where he's more suited to play.     It will be interesting... if JT/Wilkins/Hines prove they're a formidable trio, where would Mack fit in the puzzle if he came back to Indy next year... I'd think he'd be able to go elsewhere, get offered more $ and have a better chance to get more carries.  I could be wrong, but my sense is that JT is going to establish himself a true #1 RB in this league before this year ends.  I understand his wear may be an issue considering how many miles he put on in college, but so far (in limited time) Wilkins has shown he can be a solid supplement to him.  Mack has already shown the league he can be an upper-level back in the NFL, so I don't think he'll have too much trouble finding $ if he is passing all his physicals and looking good in his workouts.     TJ Green or Laron Landry... I don't think Hooker is even close to either of those guys.  Hooker produced in college, he was producing very well (being talked about DROY) as a rookie before he got hurt.  He hasn't been a bad football player here.  He doesn't get thrown at much.  He's playing a scheme that isn't entirely suited to his skill set... but he has shown he can play.  TJ Green was a raw guy who didn't produce near the level as Hooker did in college and never showed anything in the NFL (another Grigs bust) and Landry was a roided out freak who was shown the door by the league because he couldn't pass PED tests.   Hooker, if he can stay healthy, can play in this league.  That is his major concern, is his health... he is an above average football player who could be very good if he's in the right system.     Yes, that was a weird scenario all around.  Ballard, keep in mind, didn't get to choose his coach.  He was basically stuck with Pagano.  Ballard knew what scheme he wanted to run on D, which was different than Pagano.  Pagano was talking about Hooker as 'the next Ed Reed' (who played under Pagano when he was a DC in Baltimore).  Hooker really fit the Pagano mold.  I would not be shocked, if Pagano is still in a defensive coordinator position going into next year that Hooker went to whatever team Pagano was affiliated with, TBH.  
    • Agreed.  He came to the Colts to play with Luck, make a lot of stats, win a lot of games, and make a lot of money.  When Luck quit, and he had to play with Brissett, none of those things were going to happen anymore, and he knew it.  The light just went out of his eyes, and he didn't really care to be here anymore.
