  1. Lions Forum Fantasy Baseball Discussion Thread #31

    Apparently ESPN is supposed to have fantasy baseball up on the 20th.
  2. The Lions are taking apart their running game

    Get healthy, find an upgrade at LG or C, and bring in a downhill RB. I really do think that it all starts up front. Our current RB’s are far from great, but unless you have a generational talent like Barry Sanders, it all depends on the play of your linemen. I see the team bringing in a guy to start on the interior through free agency and adding a cheap veteran back the same way, with RB and a versatile lineman coming somewhere in rounds 2-5.
  3. I like what he has done so far, most I also feel like Quinn has yet to really have that draft where he hits a home run. He seems to be pretty consistently bringing in solid players, but I would love to see him draft a star or two soon.

    If anyone is interested in trading for a pitcher I would consider trading Chris Archer for a position player. I’m not dealing any draft picks though.
  5. Salary Cap Casualties That Could Help The Lions

    I'd rather keep DJ Hayden than sign Amerson. Hayden was competent.
  6. Lions Forum Fantasy Baseball Discussion Thread #31

    Looks like ESPN is down? I'm going to keep... OF Mookie Betts 1B Jose Abreu SP Chris Archer SP Jose Quintana SP Aaron Nola
  7. Where Do We Get Our D-Line Help From?

    Ansah is a great player to use that franchise tag on. The team clearly needs help with the D-Line, but he's too risky to give a long big-money deal to. Tag him for a year, get some help/develop some talent, and see how he fits in with the new defense.
  8. Star Wars Battlefront II

    Keep playing. Some of the progression issues have been fixed, but the flow of credits does slow considerably once you've put in some time. They get you early on with lots of different challenges that give you credits, but once you complete a challenge you can't do it again. It starts to become a bit of a grind. It's still a super fun game though.
  9. Caldwell fired

    This is a risk. Caldwell isn't a great coach, but he is a pretty good one. I don't think that teams realize how difficult it is to "hit" on a coaching hire for a coordinator or college coach and actually get someone that is average, let alone a Top 10-12 coach. I guess that the front office is trying to send the message that just being "pretty good" isn't good enough anymore, which I get. It's just a risk.

    I'll play again for sure.
  11. PHREAK'S Dynasty League (Discussion Thread)

    Good season everybody. I'm looking forward to the draft - hopefully my team will be more complete and competitive next year!
  12. 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.
  13. 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.
  14. 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.
  15. 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.
