    Need help: Most competitive league settings?

    Not sure exactly what you mean by "competitive" and "best", maybe elaborate. If you want a league that anybody can win regardless of acumen-experience keep the team count down, the rosters shallow, and lineups small. Like an 8 or 10 team league with 14-16 roster slots and lineups such as QB/RB/RB/WR/WR/TE/K/D. Also keep the scoring simple and weighted to TDs. This will insure anybody can hit the WW at any point in the week, even last minute, and scoop a start-able player. By keeping the starting lineup smaller and scoring geared to fluky TDs, even big K or D weeks can easily overcome an opponents stronger lineup. This type of league will be very competitive in the sense that anybody who tries can win, all skill and experience levels will compete. lots of luck in play here. If you want competitive differentiation, make everything larger 16 -32 team league, 24-30 roster slots. Larger starting lineups like maybe QB/RB/WR/TE/Flex/Flex/Flex/Flex. A team can start 1 RB or 5 for instance. Make the scoring such that RB/WR/TE are relatively equal based on previous years stats which will add to the tactical draft, roster, and start decision between RB/WR/TE. Lose the head to head and go with a victory points or all play schedule which will also take some luck out of the equation. This type of league needs a group of very competitive players because those who are just a little bit slow will quickly get left behind, and it will be near impossible to catch up. There is going to be differentiation, but it likely will not be competitive from top to bottom.

    Tyreek in trouble

    https://www.kansascity.com/opinion/editorials/article228014084.html KC Star calling for Hill to be cut if he was was violent The thing is there is likely NO video (and on the small chance there is, an even smaller chance it will be seen) of this incident, as far as we know just a 3yr old and 2 adults with vested interests. In several of the recent cases involving domestic violence accusations of NFL players the victim has recanted prior to a court case, possibly as the ramifications become clear. Suspect the same happens here eventually. The mom of the 3yr old is reportedly pregnant and likely relies on Hill for financial support so what hurts Hill hurts the rest of her family, conceivably. I'm a bit skeptical Hill gets what is coming to him, if in fact any punishment is even deserved in this case. It almost seems like its just a matter of time though until he is caught being who he has been previously.

    Why is Carlos Hyde bouncing around so much?

    You guys could be right............. but weights also tend to bounce and guys who aren't naturally thick can lose 10-15 pounds over the course of the playing season, especially at the RB position. Players also target areas (such as weight) at the point of measurement they feel they deviate from the "prototypical" NFL version for their position in a way to diminish doubts (because $$$$ y'all) and it can further cloud a true read. Rumors are, we saw a version of this with Kyler Murray this year who supposedly gained weight, for the combine but then did not run the 40 at the combine because the weight would have hurt his time. Now its possible he will lose the weight, not weigh in at his pro day but run the 40. Williams looks more slight to me visually and significantly lighter than a player like Hyde. Regardless of his weight he has never gone through a full season of bell cow touches though he has been in the league awhile. Optical illusion for me alone? Possibly, but to me a 15 lb difference between Hyde and Williams looks about right. Anyway..................I don't want to belabor the point such that it appears in my mind Hyde is a better option because he weighs more. I am not saying that and have already said I think currently Damien Williams would be the better bet........... but on relative cost I'd take Hyde for the shot he outperforms expectations with a bigger than expected role FWIW if you type Damien Williams to Google search on the summary right side of the page here is a copy and paste of what comes up listing him at 212. According to my "optical illusion" I would say there is a 15 lb-ish difference between Williams and Hyde. His current Wiki page lists him at 221 which would close half of the gap of my impression but 212 would close the gap entirely.

    Why is Carlos Hyde bouncing around so much?

    I thought he ran well in SF and in Clev as well............ when there were something approaching lanes. Hyde was the starting RB at a point where defenses could load up on the run vs Clev and by the time the passing game was threat enough the youngster was the beneficiary instead with Hyde gone. I wouldn't read too much into lack of production in Jax on his 3rd playbook in a short time with new teammates to run behind in a team dumpster fire situation. Damien Williams is on the smaller side and even if he is able to handle a significant workload over the course of a season without breaking down I suspect KC will want to conserve touches until the playoffs. Hyde could potentially get every 3rd or 4th series to begin the season, possibly GL, and most likely close out the game duties. Definition of late draft risk-reward depth pick this year, especially in best ball IMO until we get more info. Edit: Also while I still think Williams would be the RB to own at this point, the guys who have a level of certainty he will post stud numbers are funny IMO. I got a chuckle out of this Twitter post " More Hyde to KC is AMAZING for Damien Williams. Also, my girlfriend rented our guest bedroom to her ex-boyfriend, Diesel. They broke up after he joined the Marines. He does stunts for the movies now. Stuff with motorcycles. And he owns a gym. I can't wait to meet him. I'm so happy."

    Antonio Brown says goodbye to Steelers fans

    To put a bow on the OP's title. "Antonio Brown says goodbye to Steelers fans" While AB may have said his final goodbye to Pittsburgh in a clean break for him, his ghost and memory will live on for Steelers organization and fans.................in the form of the cap hit.

    Who you Buying and who you selling?

    I'm not the looking back through posts type. We all get some right and some wrong. Kudos to you if you were on the right side of DJ and I believe you but I was referring to your quoted comment. It was only an "easy choice" in retrospect. The fact that DJ was 1.03 in the average draft makes it clear that his underperformance of previous years was far less than "easy" to envision. Just out of curiosity WP, since you have a high degree of confidence Gurley will be worth that top choice, I'm assuming you must have clarity on why he wasn't on the field regularly toward the end of the year? (And presumably that it will not carry over?) I do a fair amount of research but I still do not have what I'd consider clarity so I would appreciate if you could relay a clear and accurate picture. It could help clear up one of my risk factors anyway.

    Who you Buying and who you selling?

    Bolded IMO is an accurate assessment, but of the best case scenario................which is to say I think Gurley's high end projection without consideration of other risk factors is below, or at very best in line, with the capital spent to acquire him. He is not going to win leagues this year at his ADP, the best those who choose him with a top pick can hope for he can return top 6 RB value, but the thing is the risk factors are significant and higher probability than is recognized so deserve a significant discount of his high end projection.

    Who you Buying and who you selling?

    Bolded above = Fake news / Revisionist history IMHO. David Johnson had a full off-season ADP of 1.03 last year in MFL drafts http://www03.myfantasyleague.com/2018/adp?COUNT=32&POS=*&ROOKIES=0&INJURED=0&CUTOFF=5&FRANCHISES=-1&IS_PPR=-1&IS_KEEPER=0&IS_MOCK=-1&TIME=1514782800 In fact, he was probably the single most touted "buy low" on the boards here even AFTER the first quarter of the season and it was clear the Cards O would just not support the kind of season people were expecting. More on the Gurley analysis though when I have time.

    Who you Buying and who you selling?

    In general I agree with the sentiment that its too early to determine buys or sells for the most part but one I wouldn't touch at anywhere near current market value is Todd Gurley. Not in redraft this year, and most definitely not in dynasty. I know he is a stud, a joy for me to watch when healthy, and he has racked up league winning point totals in the past.................... BUT going forward the upside is more than already priced in at current market and the downside risks appear much, much higher than are being assessed. I'm not saying he is a definite fail this year..................just saying he is a poor risk-reward choice at current value. Often its about knowing who not to take with the high value picks more so than who to take. I feel about TG, similarly to how I felt about David Johnson this time last year, but for different reasons. TG is very badly overvalued.

    Krafty move

    According to Shefter report..............Kraft is not the biggest name involved in the bust. Personally, I think Robert Kraft is an really, really big name not only in football but in the world of business..............gotta be top 200 for me so it will be interesting to see who else is behind the curtain.

    No missile jokes from me....................... but how about "When it showers it pours............................. for poor Mr. Kraft" Kraft Heinz stock is sinking after falling short on earnings and revenue, reporting a $15B write-off, and revealing that the SEC is looking into its accounting practices. Kraft stock (KHC) is down over 27% right now Mr. Buffet down $4 Billion on that too... P.S. Is a table shower what it sounds like?

    The Patriot way? Twitter rumors abound. One that is out there: "Patriots owner Robert Kraft being charged with soliciting prostitution related to what FL police say is a massage parlor where women - who were told they were coming to US for legit jobs - were in fact held as virtual prisoners/sex workers."
