  1. Tannehill had 40 combined passing + rushing TDs last year with AJ Brown not being particularly healthy. I think he could do it again.

    Thanks for that clarification. I wasn't sure there for a second!

    Week 14 bye weeks

    Fellow fantasy football afficionados, I come seeking fantasy scheduling advice. As most of you have probably noticed, now that the NFL has added an extra game to the regular season, they have also, in their infinite wisdom, scheduled 4 teams to have their bye in week 14. That's a problem for my league because we have 14 teams and have always played a 13 game round-robin regular season (an aspect we quite enjoy), followed by an 8 team playoff. Obviously, having teams playing playoff games with potentially key players on a bye week is not desirable. So far we haven't come up with any ideas to deal with this that we really like. Some ideas we've considered, roughly in order that we like them best so far, to least: A. Have week 14 be play-in games between the 7-10 seeds, and the 1-6 seeds get a bye. B. Skip week 1 and play the 13 regular season games between weeks 2 and 14 (not sure if this is even possible on our site). C. Have week 14 (or week 1) not have any head-to-head matchups, but have the games count toward the points scored tiebreaker. (Again, not sure if this is possible.) D. Manually schedule week 14 for head to head regular season games between teams with adjacent records, e.g. 7 seed vs 8 seed, 9 seed vs 10 seed, etc... Any other bright ideas?

    Week 14 bye weeks

    We decided on this, for week 1. Kind of looking forward to it, makes every player relevant to your team for the kick off to the season. Thanks nobes!

    Week 14 bye weeks

    Not an option because it's a dynasty league. I would not have been keen on having to find another owner anyway.

    Week 14 bye weeks

    Do not want. We would end up with some teams having byes when none of their players are on a bye, and other teams having byes with lots of their players are on a bye.

    Week 14 bye weeks

    Correct. This is precisely why we were looking for a better solution, even if it's a more complicated one.

    Week 14 bye weeks

    I'm using myfantasyleague.com. Turns out they have some useful options that I didn't know about in Weekly Schedule Setup (can assign any matchup including assigning any individual team a bye or a matchup against the weekly average) and Adjust Standings (so I could manually change the W/L result to be based on top half of scores of the week instead of weekly average).

    Week 14 bye weeks

    For what it's worth, it's a dynasty league, so drafting according to bye weeks isn't realistic. I may have to petition the site to support something like you and nobody were talking about (top 7 teams in week 1 get a W).

    Week 14 bye weeks

    FWIW here's an article on the topic: Week 14 Bye Weeks And The Fantasy Football Schedule: Potential Solutions | Wolf Sports Their option 2 is the same as option B above. Options C and D above are variations of their Option 1.

    Cam Newton signs with Patriots

    That's not starter money. And if he ends up not playing much, it's not outrageous money for a backup either. And I think he will be much more ready to play this year than he was last year.

    Texans release Duke Johnson

    Wanted them to get him but he has never been a few agent. Was weird that the Browns signed Hyde and drafted Chubb and then extended Johnson all in the same offseason. At his current age though I would much rather they draft a RB in round 3 or 4.

    Where will these NFL QBs be week 1 2021?

    There was a long article in The Athletic about the rift between Wilson. Much of it had to do with Wilson coming to Carroll with a plan about how to fix the offense when they were struggling midseason, and getting rejected. Which is important because the relationship between Wilson and the players had already deteriorated since the Super Bowl loss over Carroll's special treatment of Wilson. So the coach/QB relationship seemed to be the only thing holding both to the Seahawks. The OL comments are just a result of the tension, not the cause of it.

    Derrick Henry for MVP

    Henry won Offensive Player of the Year, which is the way these things typically go.

    Derrick Henry for MVP

    The reason Tennessee only won 9 games is because their defense was a sieve. The Titans' offense was just as good as Green Bay's.

    Cobra Kai

    Finally finished season 3! Best part of the finale was the past and present Kreese fights interspersed with each other.

    Carson Wentz is now a Colt!!!!!

    Nice upgrade over Rivers. That Colts roster is so much better than what Philly was trotting out onto the field last year, on both sides of the ball.

    Dumbest move you made last year...

    In my guillotine league I made it to the final week, week 16, so it had gone from a 17-team league to a 2-team league at that point. I blew most of my blind bid dollars early in the season so my opponent had a truly stacked roster even for a 2-team league. My team was comparatively weak but I had managed to outscore him in week 15 for the first time in well over a month with good free agent pickups that had good matchups. (Marvin Jones 27 points, Brandon Aiyuk 22 points, Ryan Tannehill 43 points.) My worst move was in week 16 I went to the FA well too many times, and out-thought myself trying to cut players I wasn't sure I wanted to start so I would have flexibility as the week went on. Remember there games at 4 different times Friday and Saturday. First was Vikings/Saints, I strongly considered picking up Irv Smith (26 points), but didn't, I also cut Adam Thielen (23 points). Next was Bucs/Lions. I cut Mike Evans and started Marvin Jones again. (-40 points), partly because I decided to start Leonard Fournette (15 points) and didn't want two non-QB Tampa players, but despite my confidence in Tampa's offense I didn't pick up Brady (34 points, 14 more than my other QB starters). Then 49ers/Cardinals, I'd been rolling with Kenyan Drake, but cut him, he only scored 13 but better than what I ended up with. Then Dolphins/Raiders, I really felt like Gaskin (38 points) could thrash the Raiders defense but didn't pick him up in part because he was coming off injury and in part because, not having started Irv Smith, I'd decided to roll with Mike Gesicki (11 points) and I didn't want two Dolphins. Then on Sunday because I was down by so much (opponent had Kamara, among other things), I decided to start Sammy Watkins and hope for one of his miracle big games since I had Mahomes and my opponent had Kelce and Hill. Of course Kelce and Hill got all the action that day, Watkins barely managed 4 points. So that whole weekend was one long string of bad decisions. Lost by 99 points to a team I had outscored the week before.
