Hey! Is it too late? I have been swamped the past month and haven't logged on at all.

 

Apologize about the delay guys, if I am too late I understand.

 

But, if it is still open I am 100% in! 


Based on the rules, yes, you’re in. Better late than never. Is your email still the same or has it changed? PM me the best email you can definitely be reached at, I’ll send an invite no later than tomorrow. No more delays please.

Not to pile, but at what point would we want to consider not dropping the lowest two in our league (this year only)?  If the league suspends or cancels, I’m assuming we are all in agreement we would do the same.  If a team has to reschedule, depending on when, it could really complicate things for us.  I’m actually in favor for sticking to the results regardless (fair or not).  I just think it worth discussing before games and results happen.  Don’t want any hard feelings.  Also never been a fan of “playing it by ear”.

I’m not sure. It’s hard to make everyone happy. We have finally accomplished the goal of getting the top 2 in Joes league. The 3rd and 4th place guys in Joes league aren’t available and responding respectively. So I’m leaving the door open for one of the bottom two. Yes, I’m no fan of rewarding the bottom two either but since I’m still holding out for @Rich Cannon, I might as well keep @Valpo2004 as Plan B and @SteelCityColt as Plan C. 

 

I would encourage guys like @Jared Cisneros to join the Joes league to do it the “legalistic” way so to speak. Same for others that feel they’re good enough to be and beat the best.

Sorry I meant at the end of this season.  I’m trying to prevent additional headaches where some complains the results aren’t fair due to COVID.  I just wanted to make sure everyone is on the same page.


We have expanded the bench. 3 starting WRs went out for @Juanjo after the first round of playoffs last year, still made The Finals, this was without Covid. Sh@@ happens, not accepting any whining.

Totally agree.  So let it be written, so let it be done.

On that note then, correct me if I'm wrong @chad72, you're just waiting on @Valpo2004 to answer? Not that I have a say (currently anyway) but suggest the league agrees a cut off date to finalise who is in/out? 

Yep, August 30th

This is the final list I have. I am going to use the list of names below to randomize the draft order by using a randomizer and 3 sorts.

 

Virtuoso80

Juanjo

Bluefire4

IndyD4U

Spoonfish

Chad72

Chucklez

onebad150

Btown_Colt

Korey

Statiik82

Team12 (might be @Rich Cannon or @Valpo2004 or @SteelCityColt)

 

I am going to set up a GoToMeeting for the same. Let me know which one of you would like to view the randomization and I can send the invite to you so that you can see that the order I arrive at, LIVE, is what I will post here, just to ensure transparency.

My trust got a small hit when you randomized me to the last spot :funny:

 

Hey, I think that is a good spot because you have #1 waiver priority each of the first 8 weeks till you decide to use it. Plus, that is why I copied and pasted my randomization screenshot with my IP blacked out. :)

Just a joke! I love drafting in the last spot, I love the double pick in the turn of the first round. And with a 1st waiver... So happy!

Hey, got to honor the randomizer. I’m sure you can figure a strategy out by mocking enough, I’ve seen you play. Sometimes it takes a few risks. 2 extra bench spots gives everyone options, I’m realizing. Plus it’s a bit of luck in FF.

I was just messing with ya...I do like being in the middle though. Seems every time I get a 1 or 2 pick the player gets injured.

If your other guys had showed up, Barkley had a monster game on championship weekend, if you had gotten there. Luck has a way of correcting itself over time.

I will play in the Elite league if the spot is still open.

 

Thanks

 

Can you do me a favor and check back on August 30th? I told everyone I will keep the spot open for @Rich Cannon first till August 30th and then it will be you in the pecking order.

 

I want to stay true to that if that is OK with you.

I think I picked 1st the 1st year I got in the elite league, and then won the championship.  It's pretty much luck hoping the players stay healthy.  I believe I picked Gurley 1st that year, but it also helped that I had him paired with Mahomes that year too.

Didn’t know where else to ask this but what y’all think about mack being behind Taylor and Hines for fantasy rankings? He’s like 130 something.. crazzzzy

 

Good question!!! Probably how most folks think how things will shape up by the end of the season. If it is a full blown timeshare, which it could be like Addai and Rhodes, Taylor is a bit too high and Mack is definitely lower, both by probably a round.

 

Place your questions moving forward here:

So, for the past several years, I've came here and made a post about how I am going to regain my supremacy in this league this year and once again be on top. Every year that I have done this my team has succumbed to many challenges and I've found myself usually mid-pack.

 

I'm not one to break tradition so....

 

I'm just letting you all know that you're doomed. IndyD4U will once again lay the smack down on all ya'll :rock:

I was doing terrible to start with anyways, but my team has been absolutely decimated by injury in one week.

- Chubb, out for at least 6 weeks.
- Ekeler, out for at least 4-6 weeks

My now starting RB is Devin Singletary.... and no one else.

Hello average Joes league for 2021/2022....

I know the feeling, I have Drake and Ekeler in another league and had to make a trade to give up Mark Ingram for Chase Edmonds. Drake either loses his job or Edmonds gets more reps, is what I anticipate. It is a chance you take.

 

You have to keep fighting. You do know that even if you finish (say) 2-11 at the end of the season, you have a loser's bracket and unless you finish Bottom 2 in that loser's bracket, you will not be Bottom 2 truly. That keeps everyone playing waivers, being engaged. So, a guy that finishes 8th, if he runs into bad luck in the loser's bracket, could end up in the Bottom 2.

    • They were never going to pick Lamar in 2018   Karl Joseph is a bench player and Fitzpatrick is much better than him anyways   Not sure what this post is getting after
    • They are likely kicking the can down the road, and the negative consequence is higher cap numbers for those players in future seasons, and greater cap penalties to move on from those players in future seasons. The thing is there's no much else they can do. they're set to be nearly $70m over the cap in 2021, and other than these restructures, they would not be able to get under the cap by the start of the new league year. They would have to cut or trade all of their highly paid players.
    • I feel the hype about Carl Lawson is from a combination of people who haven't really watched him play, and who overrate "pressures" by assuming that all pressures are equally disruptive.    Lawson is a tough, physical, high effort guy, he tackles well, plays the run reasonably well, he has decent size, and he would fit nicely as a DE for us. He's not a dynamic pass rusher, and I don't think he ever would be a dynamic pass rusher.   He has some quickness and speed, good speed to power, but he's not the kind of explosive pass rusher that blows up the other team's blocking schemes. He has below average bend and closing speed, and he takes a lot of steps, which explains his tragically poor three cone. He also has below average length, and gets neutralized by good blockers. This is all obvious on his tape, it was obvious on his college tape, and it's why he went in the 4th round.   TomDiggs mentioned Lawson's knockdowns/hits and hurries. PFF recorded six edge rushers with at least QB 15 hits; despite the fact that Lawson had 24 hits, he only had five sacks, which is the least sacks among those six players. In fact, there were ten edges with fewer than 15 QB hits, but with at least ten sacks. PFF has 24 edges with at least 30 pressures; Lawson had 34 hurries, but was tied for fifth fewest sacks among those 24 players. In fact, there were five edges with fewer hurries than Lawson, but at least ten sacks.   My point is that QB hits and pressures only show a player that manages to get near the QB at some point during the play. Without context, they don't necessarily show a player that makes a definite impact on the play. That's why I value PFF's pass rush productivity (PRP) stat, because sacks are weighted more heavily than hits and pressures. And that makes sense because a sack ends the play. A QB can be pressured, even hit, and still make a positive play. Recognizing a sack as nearly always a negative play for the offense, PRP shows the difference between a guy who gets near the QB, and a pass rusher who makes plays for the defense. Sometimes the overlap is not as great as you might think.   Lawson's PRP was 8.5, tied for #18, well separated from guys like Bosa (10.6) and Watt (9.7). In general, a player with a bunch of total pressures, but low sack numbers, like Lawson, is a guy who gets a bunch of pass rush snaps but doesn't have the length, bend and closing speed to get home often enough. This is why guys like Trey Hendrickson and Leonard Floyd can have a third fewer total pressures, but twice as many sacks as Lawson (Hendrickson also had 80 fewer pass rush snaps). And Lawson gets a ton of pass rush snaps because he plays for a bad team with no other good edge rushers, so as long as he's healthy he'll have a lot of pressures, but he'll probably never be a big sack guy.   He's Trey Flowers. Better 40, same agility, not as long, mid level edge rusher who is well rounded and a good guy to have on your team, but not a dominant pass rusher. I can't see offering him $14m/year to not sack the QB. Any projection that has him as a big time sack guy is unrealistic, IMO.
    • It's nice to see Pittman, Smith and Okereke get some love.
    • Did I misread your post?   Did you not say you were in favor of moving Nelson to LT?   That if we’re going to pay him top dollar, it would be better to do it with him as our LT instead of at LG?    That wasn’t you?    I’m sorry, I thought that’s what I responded to....
