In Topic: Flex: MVS or Coleman?

15 November 2018 - 05:06 PM

I think DAL LB S. Lee is OUT.  If so, I'd roll with Coleman.

 

Thanks for mine.

"An insurance policy against injury would of been millions a month to cover his future potential earnings."

 

Uh, wrong.  Last year OBJ bought an insurance policy for $100M, in case he got injured.  It was expensive - I think ~ $1M, but it was a one-time payment.  Not millionS.

Terrific..  Per the MMQB on SI.com:

 

".. a star could sit out an entire season on the franchise tag for the first time since Sean Gilbert did it 21 years ago."

 

I draft L. Bell at overall 3 (Gurley, AB), when I *SERIOUSLY* considered going for Kamara or Barkley instead.  (Discounted Hunt with a new QB!)  First time in over 20 years a player held out for the entire season..

 

I am soooooooooooo glad that after a bad draft in 2017, I decided to do Fanduel for a defacto $-league in 2018.  (I'm still in a smack-talk / for fun league - hence, L. Bell.)  :thumbsup:

 

EVERYTHING that I've read regarding what he did says it was the wrong decision.  I think I read that THROUGH HIS CAREER, he only made ~ $16M.  He could have DOUBLED his CAREER earnings by playing this year.  :doh:

 

As I've shared with friends of mine over the years:  I was in a horrendous work environment in February 2001, and resigned from a job, without one "in hand."  Was unemployed for four months.  I'll N-E-V-E-R do that again.  I'll never get that time back / the missed or foregone wages.  And my salary was (is) a FRACTION of what Bell voluntarily surrendered.  For a historic organization / coach / HOF-caliber QB / only consensus pick All-Pro WR.  It isn't like he played for CLE or BUF!!  :shocking:

 

I *WILL* laugh at his expense this off-season, whenever his contract figure is released.


In Topic: Flex Play Week 9 - whatcha got?

01 November 2018 - 05:31 AM

I was going to roll with A. Collins, but I got C. Sutton off the WW.  I also have TB RB P. Barber, or CHI TE T. Burton (will likely start CLE TE D. Njoku, even after his doughnut last week).

How the EFF does TE D. Njoku not have a catch, against a bottom-5 defense vs. TEs?!  And, only one target, which was erased due to a PI penalty..  Better hope the interim HC is Williams and not Haley..
