  1. PHREAK'S Dynasty League (Discussion Thread)

    Thanks for taking some action. Hopefully everyone else steps up and makes this league better. On that note...any QB-needy teams interested in Jared Goff? I can’t say that the price would be low, but let me know if you’re interested. I’m obviously in rebuild mode looking for better picks or young players.
  2. PHREAK'S Dynasty League (Discussion Thread)

    If this doesn’t get fixed up relatively soon I’m out next year. I love this league, but if I am being punished for actually caring about it then I want nothing to do with it anymore. Don’t give me some crap about being tougher next year. By then it’s too late. We are rewarding teams not for rebuilding or for being a weaker team, but for not paying attention. This is the second time this year that I've played someone with a guy on IR or on a BYE in their lineup. Check the league or don’t play anymore. It’s simple. You’re telling me that you don’t have two minutes at some point in the week to check your lineup and sub out players on a bye? Come on. I get it if it’s last minute on game day, but there’s no excuse for this. I don't even know if I would have lost this week or not, but we need people that can pay attention. It impacts everyone's position in the draft next year when teams aren't being managed properly.
  3. PHREAK'S Dynasty League (Discussion Thread)

    I can’t say that I’m too ******* happy about the fact that the team I’m playing this week has two players in their lineup that are on a bye. I’m trying to rebuild and it really feels like I’m being punished for being someone that actually sets their lineup each week. That’s not right. I would actually set my team up better long-term by not paying attention to this league. **** this.
  4. Nintendo Switch Thread

    I'm considering getting a Switch for the holidays. I don't have more than 30-60 minutes to play games each day, and I start to feel guilty if I spend my time in another room playing Xbox while my wife does something else. At least with a Switch we could be in the same room and I could sneak in some quick 10 or 20 minute sessions throughout the day.
  5. PHREAK'S Dynasty League (Discussion Thread)

    Ugh. Russell Wilson keeps winning me games. I feel like I’m the Jets this year - I need to rebuild, tried to trade away players to help me rebuild, and I’m somehow winning games and killing my chance at a top draft position that I really need.
  6. Ebron Options

    This is the first year where Ebron has stopped improving. That's concerning. I've been a defender of his for a long time, but he had been taking steps forward each year. He hasn't so far. If he doesn't turn things around, let him go if the team needs the cap space.
  7. NLCS: Cubs vs. Dodgers take 2

    How the **** can an ump on one of the bases overturn a call like that? Can you imagine if Granderson would've hit a home run or even got on base after that? Calls like that have to be made by the home-plate umpire unless they can be reviewed. That was insanely stupid.
  8. PHREAK'S Dynasty League (Discussion Thread)

    I have multiple third rounders next year. If anyone has a younger player (rookie, second or third year guy) that they’re just frustrated with and want to move on from, let me know. My team is rebuilding but I’m interested in gambling a bit.
  9. NLCS: Cubs vs. Dodgers take 2

    I'm hoping that Wade Davis was secretly still sore or tired or something, but he did get up in the bullpen. Maybe he had a terrible bullpen warm-up or something? I don't know. I'm trying to find a way that makes Maddon look like anything but an idiot for saving Wade Davis for later, but there's probably no excuse. I just thought that Maddon was smarter than that.
  10. 2018 Draft Eligible TE Thread

    I always come in and bring up Central Michigan players, since I went to school there and watch almost all of their games. Last year I was big on Cooper Rush, who made the Cowboys. Anyone watched Tyler Conklin? He has only played on game this year due to an early in summer camp, but he had a huge game against Ohio last week. You'll want to watch tape from this year and last probably, since CMU switched to an Air Raid and has him split out this year, but he had been playing in more of a pro style system before. He's a former basketball player that has flashed some strong receiving skills.
  11. PHREAK'S Dynasty League (Discussion Thread)

    I'm having fun just rolling the dice on my RB's. I'm hoping that between Alex Collins, Elijah McGuire and Wayne Gallman at least one or two of them earn themselves a spot for next year so I have something at RB. They've all looked useful at times. I'm so disappointed in Tyler Boyd. I really thought when I drafted him that he was a lock to be a long-term WR, a guy that could get you a solid 10 points a game or so. He was decent as a rookie last year, but who knows now. I've also gotten burned before with giving up on WR's too early (I traded Davante Adams for almost nothing), so who knows...it really makes me wish that we had more of a true dynasty format where we could keep a few more guys.
  12. 2018 Draft Eligible QB Thread

    It sounds like he has a really strong arm and he's big. That's the first hurdle, as you mentioned. He's also a three-year starter, so he has plenty of experience, he plays in a big-time conference, and he has to be fairly intelligent to go to Northwestern. That's most of what teams look for. It looks like he has thrown more picks than usual this year, but his numbers seem to have been getting better each year that he plays.
  13. PHREAK'S Dynasty League (Discussion Thread)

    I actually came in here to ask about tanking. I know that some people wait until late in the week or Sunday to adjust their lineups, but when I was looking through the other day there were several teams that had key players on BYE weeks or on IR and had not filled those positions yet. My team is not good, and I expect them to be not good, but I'm going to play a full lineup each week with what I think are my best players. I'm not going to sit Russell Wilson or Michael Thomas just because I'm rebuilding. If my team does suck, though, I expect to have a high pick. Draft position shouldn't be impacted by a team winning a couple of games against people who didn't set their lineups. I shouldn't go from the second or third pick down to the sixth pick because of some crap like that.
  14. Race for division title

    I don't think that losing Cook kills the Vikings. It's a hit, but Murray/McKinnon is a capable pair of RB's.
  15. Lions Forum Fantasy Baseball Discussion Thread #31

    I thought that I had it in the bag - my team completely **** the bed today and yours did pretty well. Congratulations on the win!
