    Jackson vs Patriots DST

    I only have LaMar, so I hope like heck he has a great game. I would likely start Stafford if I owned him, but since I don't, I'm praying Jackson breaks off a few long runs.

    Ronald Jones II

    I can't figure Jones out. If you YouTube his college runs, he was a flat out stud, even against great competition. Leads me to believe the issue is more the offensive line than anything. It's a bad situation in Tampa. They are going to need help along the line, a new QB and Arians obviously doesn't like Jones, so they may even need a RB. From a talent perspective, Jones has much more than Drake who just went to AZ. In a competent offense, I think he could be a RB2. Behind that line though, I doubt the top RB's would fare very well.

    Melvin Gordon buy low?

    I can't see any team, any team, trading for Gordon. The Chargers want a 1st rounder. Gordon hasn't been that good of a runner throughout his career and he's missed time every season. He will be a free agent and I cannot imagine a team giving him more than the $10 million per season the Chargers offered. I think he royally screwed himself. He's not durable, doesn't hit 1,000 yards rushing and his only claim to fame is he can catch the ball out of the backfield. Well, so can many others RB's who come at a fraction of the cost, yet may be more durable. He's a plodding running back who has played in a division where he should have run amok. The Raiders and Chiefs were horrible on defense his entire career. He hasn't had the most difficult teams to run against the past three seasons and he's in an offense that can move the ball. Buyer beware this offseason.

    Adam Gase

    In my opinion, he's the most overrated Head Coach, possible person, in the NFL. Why in the heck would he even attempt to trade Jamal Adams??? He's already made it clear he wants Bell gone, traded away Williams and wanted Anderson gone too. Is he wanting to be the Dolphins? This guy has some serious issues. He's never done a single thing on his own to prove he's even worthy to have this sort of control. I can't wait until he flops miserable in New York, as he did in Miami, and then nobody will hire him again. Jamal Adams is not only their best player, but one of the best Safeties in the NFL. Gase is a tool.

    Andy Dalton to the Bench, Ryan Finley to start

    I was listening to NFL on Satellite Radio at lunch. One of the Scouts said Finley had a Second Round grade in the draft, but fell to the 4th for whatever reason. Personally, he thought he potentially deserved a late 1st round grade. I think they are doing this to see if they have something in him and could potentially take Young in the draft over a QB. Finley wasn't bad in college and I was surprised he fell to round 4, but that's the draft for you. I don't see him as being better than the top guys coming out at QB, but who knows. He has the rest of the season to prove he can play behind the worst line in the league.

    Exactly. Nobody is taking on that salary. lol

    Trade Wentz for Cousins?

    I would keep Wentz all day long and not think twice about it. Cousins will have a much more difficult schedule down the stretch than Wentz. Plus, Wentz will likely be playing from behind, giving him more opportunities. Desean Jackson is coming back, which is going to open up a lot of room for passes to his RB's and TE's underneath. Cousins had a massive 3 game stretch against three of the worst 5 defenses in football against the pass. Don't chase the points.

    Undefeated teams...let's see 'em

    They must not take off points for interceptions/fumbles if you've been using Winston. I get that it's a 14 team league, but the roster itself isn't very good. I'm guessing it's the scoring system that benefits you. In the leagues I'm in, we lose 2 points for interceptions and 2 points for fumbles. We also don't get the point bonuses for 300 yards passing or the longer TD's, so that makes a pretty big difference too, especially with Winston. It's always good being 8-0 though. Anyone ever notice that the team with the best record in the league rarely wins the title? None of my leagues last year had the team with the best record winning the league. The prior year, only one team with the best record, out of 17 leagues, won the Championship. I don't know if that's just bad luck or if the owners get nervous and overthink things in the playoffs.

    Your first ever fantasy football pick

    My first pick was back in either 1992 or 1993. I can't recall which. There was no internet, so we could either mail in our lineups or call an 800 number that charged like $1.99 per transaction, but sometimes you had no choice. There were no PPR leagues back then and Running Backs and QB's went off the board super early as most all your points came from TD's. WR's didn't start to take over fantasy football until the 2000's and various types of PPR rules were put into play. My first overall pick was Steve Young. I was sort of lucky as John Elway went the pick before me. His rushing yards were pretty awesome, and back then, coming close to 30 TD's passing was not common. I remember Emmitt Smith went #1 overall and I had a late first round pick. I did end up with Jerome Bettis later in the draft and it was his rookie season. I ended up finishing 2nd, losing in the finals by something like 2 points. I recall there were no WR's taken in the first round, but I went with Rice in the 2nd. Andre Rison went the pick before me in the 2nd round. I recall thinking that guy was an idiot, but Rison had an awesome season.

    Ju Ju fell 400 yards shy of what I needed to win. Sooooooo close.

    Your worst pick this year

    I don't know that I missed on any early picks really. I missed on AJ Green, but got him in the 9th round, so not a big loss. Oh, wait, I did take Kerryon when he fell to the end of the 4th round in a draft. That was a whiff. It didn't hurt my team, but still a major swing and miss. I couldn't stand him last year, didn't like him this year (at all), but drafted him based on what I thought his workload would be and for the value of that pick. He's on my DND list for the remainder of time itself.

    Joe Flacco to the bench, Brandon Allen will start

    I wondered the same thing..... How ironic his neck is hurt and he may miss the rest of the season (Rotoworld) after dissing Denver's management.

    Melvin Gordon buy low?

    He averaged 3.88 YPC against Chicago, a team others have run all over. Two receptions for three yards. He does get the Packers next, and they've had guys run over them as well, so maybe he can finally hit the 4 YPC average. Against the Titans he had a whopping 2 YPC average. Against the Steelers, it was 2.25. Okung should make a difference, but I've watched the defenses simply overwhelm the offensive line. In the games Gordon has been back, he has a better YPC average than Ekeler, so it's not 100% on Gordon. That offensive line seems to be injury riddled year after year. I hope he does get better, but I wouldn't trade for him unless the owner was willing to practically give him away. I think you did very well in your trade.
