  1. Who to Start/Sit Thread: Help Us, Help You

    I did. Thank God.

    Samuels. High-scoring affair gives him a better chance to score. If you’re on Yahoo, play him as a TE and Miller as a Flex.
  3. Who to Start/Sit Thread: Help Us, Help You

    Tyler Boyd or Chris Conley? Dynasty Semi-Final! Help! Ayudame! I’m the Hill owner. I’m starting Hill but the possibility of him being just a decoy is frustrating me. Considering how many other Chiefs are out, it makes sense to me that Conley would at least be the second option after Kelce (who the Chargers shut down annually). Boyd has the talent and volume, but the match-up isn’t ideal and his QB is sub-par. Rest of Line-Up: My Opponent’s Line-Up:
  4. Didn’t Amani not even play a ton until this year? Or am I thinking of another Penn State DB..
  5. Week 13 GDT

    Hey so McCarthy is for sure going to get fired right?
  6. GDT Steelers vs Chargers SNF 12/2/18

    I agree. And to be fair, two of the bigger critics of Conner in my inner circle are Ravens fans. I’d expect nothing less than negative review from them. They’re quick to sing Bell and Juju’s praise though. Really weird.
  7. 2019 NFL Draft - Quarterbacks

    They’re more similar than dissimilar. Big arm, accurate QBs with great stats and similar concerns (system, competition, turnovers, decision making). Haskins has a great arm but Mahomes has an arm that’s so good it lets him be carelessly creative/unorthodox and get away with at-times iffy footwork/mechanics. Haskins is showing more of a penchant for creating plays out of the pocket and with his feet but he obviously prefers to be a classic dropback passer. Mahomes prefers the pocket too, but he’s more than comfortable playing “backyard football”. Mahomes is arguably further along in that regard because he played way more in college, and Tech called for that style of play more than OSU.
  8. Dwayne Haskins

    I concur with all of this. Tua’s WR corp is actually filthy (Jeudy is a future 1st rounder and Waddle/Ruggs are eventual Day 2 picks)... while I don’t think Tua is bad at all, I do trust Haskin’s pure passing ability over Tua’s.
  9. GDT Steelers vs Chargers SNF 12/2/18

    Connor bounce-back game? The popular narrative is he’s lost his edge but the match-ups/game script have not been in his favor. Big Ben is playing like booty.
  10. Who killed you this week?

    Michael Thomas (and Byron Jones).
  11. 2019 NFL Draft - Wide Receivers & Tight Ends

    Uhhh Metcalf pre-broken neck, Kelvin Harmon.. Hakeem Butler and Collin Johnson but they’re definitely not burners. LilJordan and Campbell are pretty fast.
  12. The SuperFlex Syndicate (Dynasty Discussion Thread)

    And now Gordon’s out. Take me now Satan
  13. Best Landing Spots for Kareem Hunt?

    He’ll be a future Jet or Raider. And you better like it.
  14. Bengals QB Andy Dalton to IR

    But what if Driskel ends up being an average QB?..
  15. Ravens place Alex Collins on IR, activate Kenneth Dixon from IR-DR

    Kenneth Dixon is still a thing? Jeez.
  16. Does Jarran Reed suck?

    What prompted this lol @BleedTheClock
  17. San Francisco 49ers (2-9) @ Seattle Seahawks (6-5)

    Anyone else a little upset with how well Seattle has been playing?
  18. Dwayne Haskins

    Since Kingsbury is going to USC, what OCs candidates are out there that are better than Hackett? How sad would it be if the Jags settled for someone like Mike McCoy lol.
  19. Dwayne Haskins

    I didn’t think Hackett was that bad. I think Haskins could succeed with Jacksonville’s WR corp too. It’s not too dissimilar to the situation he’s in right now tbh (meh offensive line play, decent WRs that do different things well).
  20. Dwayne Haskins

    If they could commit to sitting him for a year and get a decent OC in Hackett’s place, I wouldn’t hate it. EDIT: Also, can we admit that OSU’s WRs are overrated as hell? As a unit they’re good but none of them individually will be more than role players at the next level. Campbell as a playmaking WR2/3. Hill and Dixon will be steady but unspectacular WR3/4s.
  21. 2019 NFL Draft - Quarterbacks

    Mahomes with less mobility and fair amount less arm talent. Give him a year behind Eli (and a year to develop that line) and I think he’d be great for Shurmur and NY.
  22. Dwayne Haskins

    Take away his fairly strong arm, beautiful deep ball, his good-to-pretty good accuracy, and his growth as a decision maker, and there’s not much there to work with at the next level. Potential Slot WR/Safety convert? He’s really just an average-at-best athlete.
  23. The SuperFlex Syndicate (Dynasty Discussion Thread)

    #1 in points scored baby
  24. Panthers waive RB CJ Anderson

    Pack your bags, CJ. You're headed to Philly.
  25. Nick Bosa vs Ed Oliver

    I believe he was being sarcastic. @Ozzy I mean, everyone has different predisposed temperature tolerances. I walk around with flip flops in the snow but you don't see me telling him to tough it out. Cold, whatever cold is relative to you, sucks lol. Don't think it has anything to do with his masculinity. I think the fact that Oliver is trying to establish himself (inappropriately) is what led to the incident. His strength coach and his HC are nobodies. They lost 5 times last year, which is more than Oliver ever experienced to that point in his college career. This year, he's been hurt and the only reason UH is at the top of their division is cause the rest of it sucks. They lost to in-state rivals Texas Tech and SMU.. He's earned the right to vent his frustration and receive a bit of special treatment (not blatantly preferential treatment, but how about we draw the line on athletic apparel). Do I agree with how he went about it? No. Obviously not. Especially if it escalated and turned physical. No right-minded person would justify that. But I understand his reaction and in the greater context, it's just not a big deal. If I've got some incompetent coach getting on me cause something as little as my wearing a jacket, knowing full well I've given/done so much for the UH program.. I'd snap too. That's like busting your butt for a piss-poor manager; the company as a whole is failing and your manager still feels the need micromanage you? Nope. Why would I keep my mouth shut or be cordial when I could speak up and have the form of my expression match the feeling/the content? That all comes with time and experience, learning how to communicate. I don't know Oliver's personal life and if he has translatable experience. He's still a kid. He's still a top-2 pick.. I'm more than certain GMs will give this incident a minute or two in interviews, and that'll be the extent its worth. What could've happened is far worse than what actually happened. Props to the HC, for what? Telling a kid to take off a jacket? Oh, and he better compose himself in the moment. Applewhite would have even less justification reciprocating. He'd be borderline pathetic if he openly backed down or ran away. There's nothing impressive about a grown man (who's being paid to guide these kids and handle this types of occurrences) just doing his job. That's what we expect of him. Those players though? Expectations are different. I don't expect 20-year old jocks to always be bright, composed yes-men. Also, I don't care if he's milking an injury, considering how much of an utter failure that team has been since Herman left. He's thinking about himself and his future financial prospects. He really should come out and declare that, though, at least to keep his teammates on the same page. Or maybe they all know lowkey and its just something he hasn't declared publicly and/or to the coaching staff. After all I've stated above? I'd understand his reluctance/right to privacy. Who knows what is going on behind the scenes. Teams are supposed to work as much for their players as players work for their team. Sacrificing his body at this point is unnecessary. He's got nothing left to prove to us. We're just the dudes who watch him give up his long-term health every Saturday (and soon to be every Sunday). Before this incident, he was regarded as a pretty decent kid. The 5-star recruit that went to a small school just to play with his brother. Far be it from him to have a momentary explosion. He's already issued a statement explaining himself. Good enough for me.
