Can everyone support the weekend of the 29th and 30th?

I'm fine with whatever time that weekend as long as you let me know relatively soon to work with it. I have a yearly league with best friends that we do every year and I just need to make sure it's not the exact same time. I can draft two leagues in the same day, but I need to know this leagues date and time so I can tell them not to do it at the exact same time. Thanks!

The latest we can do is Sunday September 6th.   The earliest we'd all like to do is probably tune weekend of August 22nd and 23rd.    

It's a difficult situation, but I'm in favor of just leaving everything the way it is.

Ok.

 

I'll check with the wife tomorrow to make sure she doesn't have any plans and then schedule it. 

 

Noon on the 29th tentatively

All,

 

Sorry about having been MIA for a bit. I recently made a move and new job.  Its been an immediate trial by fire in the deep end of the pool and has kept me extremely busy. 

 

But noon (EST I believe) on the 29th will be our draft date and time.

Good morning my friend! You have a couple hours! Get to work! :) 

Lol,

 

I was tabbing between the draft and searching for rankings pages. That's why many of my picks went down to the wire. But now it's done and we'll see.  Seriously tho, with my new job, i almost didn't want to do fantasy cause it was looking to be more "work" than i wanted right now, and I'm only in this league.

Glad to have Zeke.  He already had COVID, right?  So hopefully that means I don't have to worry about him catching it and missing time.

 

But I just have to say...

 

I hate his profile pic... he looks like Mickey Mouse...

Anyone want to do a 4th WR for a 4th WR trade?

 

Didn't realize I drafted two WRs from the same team.  Giving up Robby Anderson.

 

@Bluefire4  Anderson for Ruggs or 

 

@Lucky Colts Fan Anderson for Pittman

 

@WarGhost21 Anderson for Williams

 

@Jared Cisneros Anderson for Reagor

I took Reagor because I think he'll have the most opportunity as a rookie WR and I can combo him with Wentz if need be. I'll pass on the trade for now.

Picking at 10, I definitely got the short end of the stick in this particular draft. I had Thomas and 8 different RBs targeted, and they all were taken in the first 9 picks. I had to reach from the top of the "2nd tier" there. Actually very surprised I beat 3 people. I had to go with my own guys at that point and I have my work cut out for me.

 

Just want to say as well, you guys did a great job drafting! Some of the decisions made were very intellegent and a couple of times that I was sniped were very surprising as well. I have to give props to Indy Bluefire for the Mahomes/Kelce combo at the 2/3 round turn. That will be tough to beat! I'm going to wait to trade until waivers open up Monday morning. I want to see what happens there and I'm going to study what is out there to see if I want to pick someone up. Afterward, I'll discuss trades on here starting Monday.

Some people prefer the last spots so they can stack picks. Usually can get to top tier WRs or a good RB and top WR

What weird string of events @Myles

 

You offer OBJ, Gallup and Singletary for A. Robinson. I only declined it because it was too many and I would have had to drop some players. 
 

I counter with Robinson and L. Murray for Singletary and Debo, you decline and want to give AP instead.

 

But then you trade Singletary and Debo for just Golladay? 
 

Seems odd is all. Sorry we couldn’t work something out I guess.

Speaking of, you didn't think my offer was good?

It was fair when you factor in Tannehill, but I have Big Ben and Herbert. I’d have to drop one, but it’s not necessary I don’t feel. Herbert and Big Ben have been scoring well and I think are more apt to have the big scoring days compared to Tannehill. So when you take Tannehill out, no it didn’t seem like a good deal for me.

 

wanna try to work something else out?

I think the Myles you’re looking for is @Bluefire4 - he’s in the Colts Elite League too and did a 3-for-1 player trade there too. :) 

Yes thank you he’s the one and I didn’t he realize he was in both leagues.

 

I wasn’t complaining about the trade, just thought he turned down a better trade offer from me than what he ended up taking. Just wanted to razz him a little.

True, but Ben ain't scoring like Tannehill, 3 games over 30 so far. And herbert,  we still don't know about.  

 

However that is your team and your opinions on it so no worries.  I'll have to take another look.

Apparently not that tight...  :censored:

 

I shoulda played Hines and the Steelers D.  I left 32 pts on my bench between those two, and would only be down 10 going into MNF.  :wall:

 

Oh well... enjoy 1st place!  :hat:

You're speaking a bit too soon.  

 

I swapped in Higgins over Montgomery last minute...bad choice.

Due to an unprecedented situation, I am initially putting it up to league vote, however I must ensure fair competition at all times.  

 

Should I negate any points earned from T. Hill if played in the TE position. 

 

Please be absolutely unbiased and look at the situation. 

 

Arguments of leaving it alone is that you should allow the reward for someone playing the game within the game and thinking ahead. That you shouldn't punish someone after the fact since they used a waiver on him.  Its also likely only one week. 

 

Im currently of the position that outside the context of waivers and that anyone could have done it,  it is wholly unfair to allow a person to receive points in a position from a player designated as starter in another position. The key words here are designated starter.  Hill has been listed as a QB, TE all year while he was backup in both. 

 

What is everyone's thoughts

 

@Lucky Colts Fan, @BPindy, @Bluefire4, @Btown_Colt, @Jared Cisneros, @WarGhost21, @onebad150

 

Edit: a compromise could be negating passing yards only.

I'm fine with it honestly.

    • Nice getting back a few of these important guys. This team was a shell of itself last week.
    • Do you mean converting part of the salary into a signing bonus?     It reduces the cap in that particular year by taking the converted bonus and pro-rating it over the length of the contract up to 5 years.  (If the contract goes longer than 5 years than the bonus is only pro-rated for the first 5 years.)   So it essentially gives some limited cap relief now by leveraging the team to that player further into the future.     Generally I don't think this is a good idea.  Mostly because teams should try to avoid being leveraged heavily and doing that sort of re-structure does exactly that.  Gives one year cap relief but increases the cap hit in the future and leverages it down the road.     To me teams doing re-structures are usually desperate.  
    • Doug....    I don't know how old you are,  but I know you're old enough to know the following is true.   Everything in life is understood looking backward.   That's why hindsight is seen as 20/20.   We understand our mistakes in life looking back and having context.   Very little is understood looking forward.   Decisions that seem obvious at the time,  often look bad in hindsight.  And that's true about all things in life,  not just football.   So, observing that Lewis is not worth the 2 and 5 we spent on him is not exactly some genius insight.   It's viewed with context of his 2.5 years as a Colt.   But in real time,  we thought enough of the kid not to risk losing him so we spent a 5 to move up 3 spots.  That's an investment of pennies on the draft dollar.    If Lewis was a raging success you wouldn't care.   But if you're going to make a mistake in the draft,  wouldn't you rather be Chris Ballard spending an extra 5 for a guy who is currently disappointing,  rather than, say,  Chicago, who spent two 3's and a 4 to move up one spot to take....  (wait for it)  Mitch Trubisky?!    Not only has that move not worked out,  it looks historically bad because they also bi-passed (wait for it)  Pat Mahomes and DeShaun Watson!    Now that trade looks dramatically worse.   That's the kind of trade that will haunt the Bears franchise for more than a decade.      Complaining about spending a 5 to move up to get a guy they rated highly is just fan boy nonsense.   Because what you're saying is the only trade worth making is a trade that works.   If it doesn't work -- for whatever reason -- is cause to take cheap pot shots years after the fact, and acting like you're offering up some pearls of wisdom.   You're not.   You're trying to make something out of almost nothing.   Like the popular song says.....    "Let it go!   Let is go!   Let it go!"
