#6372551 What do you need in Round One?

Posted by weepaws on Yesterday, 02:10 AM

Got a win in my 1st round today, but man am I running into a buzzsaw 4th seed whose team is on absolute focking fire...
 
He's got Luck, Hilton, Hill, Kittle, and Henry who just dropped a 50. This dude drafted Bell too and was pissed when I snagged Conner in the draft.
 
Gonna be a tough game next week...


Congrats, and good luck next week.

People have a peculiar definition of luck imo. It's not luck if Barkley falls to you in the second or if you get Hunt in the second or if Mahomes is playing Baltimore in the playoffs or if you got Aaron Jones off the WW.
 
I don't think you can point to RB/RB drafts as a reason for being good either. Sure Elliott and Hunt were a great foundation, but what about the guy that went Fournette/Cook?
 
There's so much that goes into building a good FF squad. It starts with your predraft preparation, evaluating the talent pool and where there is a surplus or deficit, or a sharp dropoff in either talent or reliability. 
 
This research allows you to develop a plan, and from that plan you go into your draft which is the next important stage b/c your pre draft plan probably isn't going to work out the way you had hoped. And you need to be flexible enough in your plan to adapt to the actual situation.
 
The first couple of weeks you evaluate the undrafted players and see who's got a chance to do things you didn't expect before the season started (I'm looking at you Philip Lindsay). You're trying not to chase the guy who had 2 TDs last week, you want to find the guy that will have 2 TDs THIS week.
 
After four weeks or so you have a reasonable idea of your teams strengths/weaknesses and the strengths/weaknesses of the other teams in your league. Maybe you make a trade to shore up a position or some bye week issues, maybe you buy low or sell high, but somewhere in there there's a chance to improve your team.
 
Halfway through the season you have a solid grasp on your team and league and you can turn an eye to playoff matchups. Maybe someone has a super awesome playoff schedule and it's worth it to try and acquire them (looking at you Cam).
 
And then at the end of the year you're trying to make the right start/sit decisions to push you over the edge and lamenting the fact that your star got hurt now of all times.
 
There's so much more than luck that goes into a team's success, I think it's extremely lazy to blame things on luck (good or bad). If you do that you're not going to look at things critically and learn from your mistakes for next year.


Great post,  very nice.

But you forgot one thing, after one does all that stuff you pray that you get lucky and those players perform the way you think they will.  

Awesome job thanks. Hey good luck today.

Agreed.


#6370841 KC signed Kelvin Benjamin

Posted by weepaws on 06 December 2018 - 10:33 PM

Interesting move by KC.

Just don’t know what he will offer.

He can’t catch.

C Davis has been a big disappointment for me.  

He sits.

#6367405 Bold predictions for Week 13...ready, go!

Posted by weepaws on 01 December 2018 - 06:08 PM

A. Jones outscores K. Hunt by a large margin.  Probably over 100%,.


Best one so far m


#6367024 Kareem Hunt - Not Good

Posted by weepaws on 01 December 2018 - 01:43 AM

I applaud you KC.

I think it’s a shocking move to see a player of Hunt caliber get released, but then again someone some team had to send a message that we won’t take it from you for acting like a fool and kicking a woman.

If he pushed her away and walked on, then find he took the high road, but to turn around a kick her when she is on the ground is just awful.

No matter what she said or what she did, no man hits a woman.

He will be back some time next season I’m sure.


#6367016 Josh Adams-how good?

Posted by weepaws on 01 December 2018 - 01:15 AM

Hunt as been released as you know and he is done for this season.

I don’t see how there is anyway he returns, and I think if there was any possible way of him returning this season that he wouldn’t have been released.


#6366786 Who are you starting Ware over?

Posted by weepaws on 30 November 2018 - 06:47 PM

I'm debating between Ware and A Jones.


Would actually go with Jones.


#6366785 Who are you starting Ware over?

Posted by weepaws on 30 November 2018 - 06:47 PM

I had a hard enough decision to make now add Ware to the mix in a PPR league need 1.
 
Ware at Oakland
Chubb at Houston
Mixon vs Denver
Gus at Atlanta


Gus is questionable so I would pass. Mmm I have to wait and see how the new Qb works out with the Bengals Mixon out.
Chubb vs that Texans def I’m not sure I trust, Chubb been very good for me right now, but I’ll go with Ware.

I don’t think he’s as good as Hunt , I mean if he was it would be a RBBC in KC up to this time. But he’s on a great offensive team so I’ll role with Ware. Good question.  Good luck.


#6366420 Gurley owners

Posted by weepaws on 30 November 2018 - 09:38 AM

Not so sure if they will a actually bench him.

I don’t see him missing an entire game.

So if you did pick up Brown how much time would he spend playing.

And if the Rams bench Gurley, what if they also bench Woods and Cooks and Goff, how much quality is there left on the field for Brown to have success on the field.

I think Brown is worthy on a handcuff Incase of a injury to Gurley.


#6365441 AJ Green "ready to play"

Posted by weepaws on 29 November 2018 - 12:06 AM

In ppr no.  I would play the Zeke.

He’s used more offten in the passing game and is a better producer in the passing game then A Jones.

And the Saints can score.
