I know that its next to impossible odds that we could or even would try to trade up to #1. But let's say that the Bengals really really love Trevor Lawrence; like he's their QB soulmate and would feel incomplete without him.

-So they are willing to shop the #1 pick. What is the limit that y'all would be willing to give up to get to #1?  Essentially, how much more to you  is JB2.0 worth than 1.0?

Are you kidding me? Cincy isn't going to trade it's #1, they're all set to nab Burrow, a generation QB.  I'll believe it when I see it, but it's slim and none is what Cincy is going to say. Take Fromm and if he goes before Love, then take Love or Eason....

Did you read the post or just the title? I made it clear that I have no expectation of a trade. Simply wanted to see people's opinions on it in the hypothetical situation that a trade was possible. Maybe hypotheticals are not your thing. That's fine. I'm sure the, 'are you kidding me?' outrage response might be good for a few likes.

I'd give our first this year, our first next year, and both 2nds this year. With so much cap space, and a 3rd-7th rounder left this year (including two 6ths), I think it would be worth it to obtain a true franchise QB, and we'd only lose one future 1st round pick as well.

 

That's my offer to the Bengals for Burrow.

I was thinking the same thing. I'd hate to give up more than one future 1rd pick.  I was playing around on draft simulator with trades and got #1 with that offer. Lol

This. 

 

It would be much cheaper to grab Tua, if it would even require moving at all. I feel like he's gonna be the better pro after it's all said and done anyways. Would actually be willing to bet money on that.

Fromm is another Brissett.

Tua seems to be glass though.

Because he got injured once? By those standards, essentially everyone in the league is glass. He hadn't missed a single game due to injury prior to this year. 

Look it up both years he has been hurt at one point or another he had an Ankle that he had a surgery on last season in his first full year as starter then he had the other ankle for surgery this year then the Hip he is glass and I don't think he is that good anyway.

If 87 TD's to 11 INT's for 7,400 yards with a 190+ QB Rating is bad, I'd hate to see what good is. In the SEC, no less. QB's take hits, they get injured because they take the most violent hits (blindside).

 

He hadn't missed a game up until this season, and was actually even playing thru that (ankle) injury, which is ultimately what likely caused the hip injury. He's gonna be better than Burrow, and probably anyone that came out in 2019. I believe that so much, I'd wager a decent amount of money on it.

 

This is what I do man, I study this crap like it's my job, because in a way it is, I play DFS on DraftKings and several high $ fantasy leagues each year. I keep files and records on most players, have been studying this 2020 class since last offseason, these guys are gonna be game changers at the skill positions.

Tua could be great, but his injury history is definitely a concern. So young and already repeatedly banged up and coming off major surgery.  I would not give up the ship for him. Burrow, yes, but that's a pipe dream. He's going to Cincy.

As a spoiled colts fan I’m use to great qbs. I would do what ever it takes to get that #1 pick. Joe Burrow is the closest thing to manning as I seen since manning. Ballard can work without #1 picks. He can do that for the next few years. 
This years 1st and the next 3. Once in a generation player go big or go home!!!!!!!!!!

Got mad respect for you on the bolded. It's a hard way to make an easy living lol! :thmup: Daily fantasy football has become almost impossible tournament-wise to consistently make money. You have to grind your way up through the cash games.

Dude, it's all about variance and having the right players and game stacked. It's tough, but you don't have to win to make money, generally in larger formats you win money thru the 4000's or so (out of 100-150 thousand). 

 

Like, say the Texans played the Chiefs (use an easy one for the example), you'd wanna stack players from both teams in this game (called a game stack) because of the strong likelihood that it's gonna be a shootout, which in turn produces tons of fantasy points. So, you'd stack Mahomes with Tyreek Hill and Travis Kelce, while also having Will Fuller and DHop in as well to fully benefit from the high scoring of the game. It's fairly easy to find which games will be high scoring, Vegas releases the O/U early and they're generally spot on (they aren't in the business of losing money, right?)

 

Now, the problem with that is that everyone and their mother is gonna stack players from that game haha, which is where variance comes into play. You wanna play stacks and game stacks that others won't, so that you obviously place higher than they do, and avoid being in a 300 person tie, which splits the money up even further. There's a lot more to it than people realize. Which is why I study these guys inside and out, any advantage is a good one.

Hmmmm....don't b so sure.  They could trade out and grab the best player.  They would still b a dumpster fire and set the selves up for Lawrence next year.  They could easily b picking #1 again next year

    • Please name a team that had a great o-line recently. And with 2 good blocking TE's. And at least 1 good blocking WR. We will see how our other Big WR's come along as blockers.  Our ground game should be dominant in a lot of 4th quarters. That is so boring, and yet so demoralizing to an opponent and their fans.   We shall watch their lamentation and revel in it on our way to glory.
    • Can you think of a recent example where a team won with that formula?  I can’t.
    • Now football changes.  CB appears to be attempting to return to an 80s style of football.        Walsh West coast really with a heavier emphasis on the run,   Short stuff and crossing routes and pass catchers in the backfield.  Walsh’s teams ran a lot more than many realize likely, but compared to other teams of the era they were “pass heavy”.   this might work.  I just think the rules of today’s game make it more expedient to throw the ball.  Can’t hit the QB or the receivers.  Tight secondary reffing.   It’s kinda like baseball IMO, found out the best way to score runs was to take a lot of pitches and swing as hard as you can trying to hit everything out of the stadium like our dads told us not to.  
    • I voted Yes to all 3. It starts up front, if a team has a great O.Line even with a good QB you can win a SB. The QB has to be at least good obviously but with a great O.Line your run game is usually good as well.
    • I don’t think it’s gonna work out. It’s too much leaving not enough for other positions.  Linemen neither score nor prevent TDS.     if you have a great QB on a rookie contract, it could be ultimately successful IMO.  Otherwise I don’t see it.   I want a strong line, when you look at the list of spending, the best SB caliber teams arent on it.     TENN is not SB caliber.  They had a nice run last year but were in tenuous playoff position at the end of the year.   BUFF maybe, but they are towards the bottom of the list.  And Allen won’t be on a rookie contract much longer.   spending that much will make likely 2 things: 1.  We will be at least good offensively. 2.  We will not be a good enough team on D and at skill positions to be championship caliber.
