Horseshoe Blue PPR 2021


Recommended Posts

I'm back, and so is the league. League has been reactivated and looking to see who's interested in participating again this year.

 

Once I get all the ins and outs, I'll start determining draft order.  If you are in, please provide some tentative weekends or  weekdays that you think would work for you.  Thanks and look forward to this season.

Reverse Final Rankings from last year determine the draft order this year. 

 

Like last year, you will get to select your draft position. First up for selection is @Btown_Colt, followed by Scranton Stranglers, @WarGhost21, @BPindy(waiting for response), Team hulce, @Lucky Colts Fan, @onebad150(waiting for response), @Jared Cisneros, myself, and then selecting last is @Bluefire4

 

@Btown_Colt you're on the clock.

Was there any rule changes that people wanted to put up for a vote?


I know last year there was a suggestion for half point ppr, is this something we want to have a vote on?

@w87r you get the last slot, picking at 7.

 

Now that we have the draft order,  we need to dermine draft date. 

 

Season opener is Sept. 9th.  Do you guys want to draft the weekend prior on the 4th or 5th?

 

Please let me know a date and time of day you prefer,  morning,  afternoon,  or night?

I'd prefer morning (EST).  Like 10am on a Sat or Sun morning would be perfect.

 

But I can do whenever.  Whatever works best for everyone.  :thmup:

Ok, so lets look to do this on 4 September.  Is there a preferred time for everyone?  I know one said in the am, does anyone else prefer the afternoon or evening?  

 

When you specify time, please include your time zones

 

@Btown_Colt @w87r @onebad150 @Lucky Colts Fan @Jared Cisneros @WarGhost21 @Bluefire4

 

Also, just found out that in November, i will be away for 3 weeks and unable to manage my team.  Want to make sure that it is ok with everyone that i have my wife (who plays in the league) manage my team during that time?  Please let me know if anyone would have issues with this.

Since Sept 4 is a Saturday, maybe 10 AM MT? That'd be noon EST. 

 

I'm fine with your wife taking over your team during those three weeks as long as she doesn't do any trades between her account and your account during that time without your permission. I just don't want her being able to switch players between two teams around at will to possibly gain an advantage on one or both teams.

Ya she wouldn't do that...except to make sure she beats me.  I will be completely out of communication for those three weeks but will make sure to try to go ahead and set my lineups for those three weeks prior to leaving.

    • Greetings y'all.   Titans vs. Colts 2: Electric Boogaloo. One thing that everyone can agree on is that both teams are better than Week 3 when Wentz was basically a scarecrow back in the pocket waiting for someone to hit him. But as a visitor to these pages, I can fill in some details from the Nashville sports market on what people are saying down here and some of the mentioned issues of our previous games.   First, the Buffalo game. The final drive which ended up in the failed sneak was discussed ad infinitum in these parts. The most interesting comments came from Jeffrey Simmons who on the Titans D-line made the play against Allen. If you don't know about Simmons yet, you should. He's very good and at three years into the league is getting better every game. He sniffed out that the play was going to be a sneak based on the formation and at that point, he knew he just had to beat his man to the gap and meet Allen head on. And despite Allen's size, I'm giving that one on one matchup to Simmons. Allen slipped because it became obvious in that split second that going low to get the extra foot wasn't going to work, changed his mind and ended up falling to the ground where Simmons wrapped him up. Game over.   As for the Chiefs game, we all knew that they had flaws, but as long as they had Mahomes they could blow you out in any game. So we as fans were just as surprised as anyone to see an honest-to-goodness beat down. But I do not think we did anything different than other teams in approaching KC in recent games. Rush 4, blitz rarely and keep everything in front of you and wait for Mahomes or the team to make mistakes. Score when you get the ball since the defense is suspect. And that's it.    Now for this game. Indy is a much better team than week 3 and Wentz has been efficient and takes care of the football. Jonathan Taylor is well on his way to a 1000+ yard season. And Indy has the usual suspects in the offense who always seem to play the Titans extremely well. After a wretched 0-3 start, the Colts have rebounded winning the last 3 out of 4 games.   The problem is that the only win of those 3 that could be considered "quality" is the 49'ers game on Sunday that was a sloppy slip'n'slide fest. This game is a must win for the Colts for many reasons.  First, it's a measurement of how far the Colts have come from the first three games. But most importantly, a loss would put the Colts 3 games back in the division and even though JAX and the Texans aren't competition this year, a loss would have the Titans win any tie breaker for the title. So it's really a playoff game.   Normally I hate games like this since it's against Indy and on the road with something important on the line, recipes for poor play from our side. But we have the bitter reminder of the Jets loss to remind everyone that we can't just walk in and expect Indy to lie down. It's going to be a physical fight since both teams are built around the running game.   As for the Titans, we now have both A.J. Brown and Julio Jones as targets on the field at the same time. We didn't have that in the Jets loss and while Henry got his yards, we had very little from the passing game. And then there is Henry who is on pace for a consecutive 2000 yard season. If he gets to the second level, anything is possible. the Chiefs sold out to stop the run, often putting 9 in the box AND having everyone within 10 yards of the line of scrimmage. The result was A.J. Brown running all over the field 27 points by the half. Lastly, Tannehill is getting better protection from the O-line surrendering only 1 sack in 2 games, versus 20 sacks in the first 5. This is important considering the O-line is always banged up and has rarely played our starters together this year. Last week we played a left tackle 4 days off the street since Lewan was still in concussion protocol.   And our defense has begun to come to life, with the front getting healthy for the first time all year. Harold Landry has 7.5 sacks out of 17 total for the team. Last year the entire team had only 19 for the season. The combination is Landry, Simmons, Bud Dupree and Denico Autry are getting the job done now. The safeties are quality with Hooker back from injury and Byard playing back to his pro-bowl self. The soft underbelly is the corners, but their play has been better in the last couple of weeks, helped out by pressure from the front 4.   The Titans mission is to get a stranglehold on the AFC South in the middle of the most competitive games of the season (Bills, then Chiefs, then Colts and finally the Rams). I think Titans fans would have been happy with 2-2 in this stretch as long as one of them was Indy. We now have the possibility to really take control, but this team still has weaknesses to exploit and the Colts are built to exploit them.
    • If you would even make it out of the stadium with the ball
    • Well, see, here’s the thing:   No.   
    • Yeah I don't want to jinx it but I feel the same way.  They're playing well and hope that continues.  Titans have a good front though so we'll see.
    • True.  But even with the mobile ones getting them to move that first time due to a rusher's influence tilts the play in the defense's favor.  From there your chances of either an incompletion or maybe even a mistake leading to a turnover is higher.
