  1. Lions Forum Fantasy Baseball Discussion Thread #31

    Thanks - I figured that it was over when I checked on Sunday afternoon, but then my team just eked out a win.
  2. Lions Forum Fantasy Baseball Discussion Thread #31

    It feels good to finally get into the playoffs as the #4 seed after a couple of years of rebuilding. It actually paid off a bit!
  3. PHREAK'S Dynasty League (Discussion Thread)

    I apologize in advance for what might be a record-setting string of low scores. My team is in a full rebuild, and some of my younger players (Samuel, JuJu, Howard, etc.) might struggle to get consistent targets this year.
  4. PHREAK'S Dynasty League (Discussion Thread)

    I wouldn't mind adding roster spots eventually. Right now we are more of a big keeper league than a true dynasty - it sucks having to cut guys loose each year that you drafted.
  5. Laken Tomlinson traded to the 49ers

    Tomlinson might be better in a different scheme I suppose. I was super disappointed with him. I thought that he was a sure bet to be a solid guard for a decade. He still might be - development isn't linear.
  6. Thank God that they got this deal done. This deal looks huge right now, but wait until two years or so, when guys like Rodgers/Ryan/Newton/Cousins have all signed new contracts and Brady/Roethlisberger/Manning have retired.
  7. Matthew Stafford and Lions agree to new deal

    Good. Stafford is probably a Top 10 QB. In a couple of years when some of the other top guys have retired and a few others have signed new deals, this contract should actually look pretty good, especially with how the salary cap keeps going up.
  8. Where is Eric Ebron?

    I expect a really big year from him if he can get on the field. Having Fells there should mean that Ebron won't have do what he's not good at (blocking) and should be able to spread out and create mismatches more.
  9. Lions Forum Fantasy Baseball Discussion Thread #31

    He didn't even have a bad week - my hitters just exploded over the weekend and I had dominant pitching that week. It wasn't like his team fell apart or something.
  10. Madden 18

    I wish that they put more effort into improving franchise mode. I don't care about MUT or playing online. The story mode sounds like it's pretty cool but not very long, so it's disappointing that there isn't more depth put into franchise again. It has been the same mode for years now.
  11. PHREAK'S Dynasty League (Discussion Thread)

    My roster is missing my kicker, McManus. Also missing Kenyan Drake, and I see that D'Onta Foreman is on waivers and someone else picked him.
  12. Random Game Talk #1

    I'm just hoping that the damn game comes out this console generation. I'm not at all convinced that it will.
  13. 2018 Draft Eligible QB Thread

    Is completion percentage relevant in college? You can't compare him to all other college QB's when most of them run a spread offense. He runs a pro style offense and makes a lot of throws and decisions that other teams don't even attempt.
  14. Matthew Stafford Expectations

    I think that he will have another really good year that will continue to establish him as a guy that belongs in the Top 10 QB rankings. He's clearly comfortable in this offense, and I think that overall the personnel around him have slightly improved compared to what he had last year. I would not be surprised if statistically he finishes a little behind where he was last year. I really think that the Lions are going to commit to a more balanced attack. With some of the injuries already they might have to abandon that at times, but overall I do think he will throw a bit less and hopefully the defense will allow the Lions to control the clock a bit more. Maybe something like 4,100 yds, 28 TD/10 INT, 65% completions.
  15. PHREAK'S Dynasty League (Discussion Thread)

    Eli is fine if you're OK with someone that will probably finish in the 14-18 range, which is a capable starter but definitely one of the weaker ones in a 16-man league. I would definitely be eying a replacement soon though...
