It seems the ratings are all over the place, 171 is by far the highest I've seen. AccuWeather has it at 155 and forecasted to drop to the low 140s by kickoff.
Edit: AccuWeather's forecast now shows low 130s for kickoff. Obviously just one site, but a good sign that it's tending further downward.
Teicher is the fucking worst. He's good for click bait and nothing else. Terez Paylor and BJ Kissel are the only Chiefs beat reporters to listen to. When we signed Nick Foles he heavily implied that it was because the team was unhappy with Smith and wanted to bring in competition for the starting job.

This is a win, guys.
Eight games of Gordon is way more than zero.
*Edit: 7 games for us in fantasy. Per /u/heel182's comment:
The ATL-BUF-IND should be a particularly sweet stretch.
Good thing Landry is the 2nd receiver with yards after catch, probably would be 1st if Marvin didnt have his huge game
Kind of weird, but watch the ESPN video of Field Yates talking about Terelle Pryor, posted on Tuesday Sept. 27, at 12:53PM. About 34 seconds into the video, he slips up and says: "with no more Josh Gord... No Josh Gordon for another week". I wonder if they knew this ahead of time?
Link to the video. 34 seconds in, if no ad plays before the video.

This is one to very seriously keep an eye on right now! Still set for tonight, but those high wind gusts paired with heavy rain will make it very hard to get things going in the air!
Ravens vs Indy is supposed to have rain and 20MPH winds all game long. I was going to play Mike Wallace, but the stronger the wind the more a deep pass can become inaccurate.
I do not trust 'elite' Joe Flacco's deep ball accuracy enough to play Wallace in 20MPH winds and rain.
1) He's done well the last 3 games without All-Pro tackle Marshall Yanda and first-round pick G/T Ronnie Stanley. They should be expected back soon-ish.
2) His playoff schedule isn't the best: Pats, Eagles, Steelers.
3) He's had a relatively easy schedule so far though with sub-par run defenses. 5/6 teams he has faced are at the bottom half of the league in terms of rushing yards allowed - source
4) This next game will say a lot about his ROS worth before his back next week particularly if Flacco is out. If he does well against the Jets on Sunday, I think he could vouch well for that high-tier RB2 status with an RB3 floor.
tl;dr next game will determine if he is of RB2 status
The nicest and biggest - Its huge and awesome. It sits on 3 lots if y'all wanted to do play basketball, corn hole, or anything else like that. I'd set up a decathlon for y'all to decide your draft order if you want. I could get y'all a keg and anything else like that. I could get someone to run your auction if your league does that. Ooh, I could set up a projector so that everyone can see the board, and you could have people who can't attend on the screen via skype. Basically, I'd want to make it the ultimate draft experience at a cheap price. This place would be about $200 per person (assuming 12 people) for the stay, a keg, a huge pot of gumbo, a bunch of jambalaya, and all of the beer pong, corn hole type stuff.
Here is the cheapest place that sleeps 12, not as comfortably. It's not as nice. This would be more like $100 per person.
Then I have several others are inbetween those prices. I'd obviously recommend the mansion. An extra hundred is nothing for the best weekend of the year.
At the time of the procedure: "NFL Network first reported news of the procedure.
The move to IR means Charles will miss at least eight weeks."
Guys... I love Jamaal. I want it to work out for him but as far as fantasy goes he's done for the year.
As a Marshall Owner for multiple years, there no way I'm flipping this guy for anyone else.
Decker was dope. But Enunwa has showed he's got some skills too, they signed ASJ, and last and certainly not least they now have Matt fucking Forte. There are plenty of other players on the roster where defenses just can't target Marshall alone.
Regardless of that though, the dude ALWAYS produces. Regardless of team or the roster, he always produces. The only down year he's had in the last 9 years was when he was injured.
If you're scared, you're wrong. Be happy you've got a fantasy stud on your team.
You don't want that answer, because "who wins leagues" is much more dependent on single-week outcomes during the playoffs. Tim Hightower was on 33% of ESPN FFL championship teams last year, followed by David Johnson, Doug Baldwin, Jordan Reed, Charcandrick West, Gary Barnidge, and Chiefs DST.
To win in the playoffs requires luck. I'm more interested in which players were on the teams that were top two in the regular season -- tell me who gets you in the best position to succeed in the playoffs.
For what he's asked to do, he is. That's in no way a detraction from Aikman. The guy is probably my favorite player of all-time, but he had much better circumstances than Romo.
Aikman had an amazing offensive line, the top rusher in NFL history, a HOF wide receiver, a dominant defense, and one of the best coaches of all time. He wasn't asked to do nearly as much as Romo is and was.
I understand how the game has changed and how passing offenses have changed, but Romo has ~100 more TDs and about 30 less INTs than Aikman. Aikman's rating was 81.6 and Romo's is 97.1 -- the second highest of all time.
Aikman had 21 game winning drives and 16 4th quarter comebacks.
Choke artist Romo has 30 game winning drives and 25 4th quarter comebacks.
The Cowboys live and die with Romo. Any pick he makes is magnified because for most of his career, nobody could help him out. If Aikman threw a pick, Deion would pick it right back, or the D would force a 3 and out. If Aikman was off, Emmitt would go for 180 and 3TDs. He had WAY more help than Romo does.
But, Romo goes for 25-36 for 500 yards and 5 TDs, but throws one pick, they lose because the defense gives up 51 points, and gets blame for the pick. (http://www.pro-football-reference.com/boxscores/201310060dal.htm#all_player_offense)
His back is only bad because he's been carrying 52 other guys for his career.
Heck, Aikman himself even said it: http://www.espn.com/blog/dallas/cowboys/post/_/id/4691075/troy-aikman-tony-romo-better-than-i-was

- rhinestone licensplate holder until next season
- loser runs a 5k wearing a business suit and dress shoes

I ordered this a few days ago. I'm hoping it does something. I've been stretching when it gets uncomfortable. I have a doctor's appointment on Friday for a check up, I'm gonna see what he says for curiosity sake. I've still been running on them though because honestly, it's the only time I'm not in pain. It's the worst when you first wake up.
I edited this sheet to make it a little easier. Select your league from a dropdown list, all input are on a single page, macros so there is no copying and pasting, asterisk players to highlight them in the upcoming picks on the Real Time Draft Tool page as /u/Beer4TheBeerGod suggested.
I'm not an Excel whiz by any means, and I'm sure it could be tightened up a lot, but I tested it a few times and it seems to work.
I didn't test it for every league, and I didn't adjust anything related to /u/AFKennedy 's method. Snake draft leagues only in the dropdown menu, no auction. It may be a pain adjusting this when the next BeerSheets come out, I didn't really think that far ahead.
For those who aren't familiar with the concussion protocol:
1 - he hasn't practiced yet. Monday's participation is most likely a projection of his timeline.
2 - he has multiple hurdles to clear before being reinstated. one of these hurdles is light activity. (limited practice? running on sidelines)
3 - another is practice. Just because he practices DO NOT mean he's cleared the protocol and ready to play
4 - He has to go through all these activities without setback.
5 - he has to get cleared by an INDEPENDENT neurologist. This kept Reed from playing the game before London.
He's going through these stages at a pace that without setbacks, he could likely be cleared for Sunday's game against CHI. One pace where players clear in a week: limited practice 4 days later (Thurs for Sun games), full 5 days after (Fri) - then reinstated sat/sun after testing and no setbacks. *Some players do not get the reinstatement over the weekend and are held out of the game, but usually make it back to limited/full practice pattern and reinstatement the week after.
A contrasting example is Ware. No practice. No activity. He's stuck in the first few stages. He can't progress into limited activity until he clears these first stages. He can't fully practice until he can do activity (like stationary bike) without symptoms...
For those who really want to learn more and read into what is going on with Mike Evans and his activities in the next week, let me plug none other than the injury expert Stephania Bell at ESPN... she is doing specialized injury analysis series this year, with concussions already being talked about. here's the link for all interested where they talk about the concussion protocol: http://www.espn.com/espnradio/play/_/id/17884397
Partiots @ Bills Discussion
I would expect to see more of the run game and short/intermediate passes, while if you've got a kicker well-- these are two of the best kickers in fantasy! You're not dropping them and you probably can't roster two kickers when you need a bench full of breakouts for the playoffs. Temper expectations for kickers here, they're good, they'll still score just not the 22 points like last week. I expect less air yards but more YAC.
This is an interesting point, but doesn't he often get 3rd and 4th quarter looks in a lot of games? It seems he frequently looks pedestrian in the first half and then comes out with a good game by the end.
Edit: Here's some stats on the splits, check the quarters - http://www.espn.com/nfl/player/splits/_/id/2576716/jamison-crowder
Costco has excellent benefits, many available for part time workers.
They start their workers north of $13/hour now (was previously $11.50) and employees can reach up to $22.50/hour within a few years. Source.
They apparently pay cost of living increases, including when you're capped. Costco is also very big on promoting from within for corporate positions.
Per some Googling, they also apparently pay their employee bonuses twice per year (based on profit).
I worked at Safeway in high school and started like $.50 above minimum wage in WA (was around $9.00/hour at the time I think?). No 401k match, no annual bonuses, etc. I had health care but Costco's package sounds much better.
I believe our max pay as a cashier at Safeway was somewhere around $19/hour (it was renegotiated and lowered shortly before I got hired. Grandfathered employees had a higher maximum earning potential.) It took around 4-5 years of full time work to get there. I don't remember ever hearing about cost of living increases.
I did not ever work for Costco and am sure the job still has its pitfalls, but I have often heard that they are very generous for a retail employer. Sure sounds a lot better than my stint at Slaveway!
Jackson's profile, courtesy of http://www.espn.com/blog/green-bay-packers/post/_/id/30079/running-back-don-jackson-could-be-best-of-packers-undrafted-rookies
Why he stands out: Jackson got a late start in football thanks to a troubled past, which was chronicled by the Reno Gazette-Journal last year. He barely played until his senior year of high school, and despite one teacher’s prediction that Jackson would be “dead or in jail before he's 17,” according to the Gazette-Journal, he eventually made his way to Nevada after junior college. As a senior last year, Jackson rushed for 1,078 yards and eight touchdowns in 13 games. He combined for 15 rushing touchdowns in his last two seasons. At 5-foot-10 and 205 pounds, he reportedly ran a 4.47 40-yard dash at his pro day on March 29. Although he wasn’t invited to the combine, that 40 time would have ranked tied for fifth among running backs who ran in Indianapolis in February.
How so? http://www.espn.com/nfl/team/stats/_/name/ten/tennessee-titans
Lets take a look.
19 receptions- leads team
2 receiving tds- leads team
3 rushing tds- leads team
5 total tds- leads the entire team (even Mariota)
Since I mostly lose in ridiculous ways I'll tell you my craziest losses.
Accuweather has no rain and 10 MPH winds throughout the game with the high(er) winds and rain coming prior to kickoff. Accuweather forecast
Is anybody in Baltimore who can clear this up? It sounds like a soggy field and wind that will have minimal impact on anybody worth starting. I think Alex Collins and Justin Tucker are the only ones people care about, I'm not worried about either unless I get solid info to the contrary.
Aaron Rodgers is confirmed a racist. 56 passes and only 10 of them were for white guys.
But seriously, I know it's tough to see Jordy get only 4 targets but I hope no one here actually plans to sit him next week (unless it's revealed that he's injured). He has had similar games before but it doesn't happen often. Infact, usually once a year.
In an interview with coach Carroll,
"Can you imagine legitimately splitting time at tailback between Rawls and Michael (running back by committee)?
There's absolutely no question in my mind you can do that. We did that for years at USC. We just went with the guy that was hot and that's a great way to go. It gives you flexibility and durability in the sense that you don't have to overload anybody. I'm more familiar with that (RBBC) than one guy. I look forward to that and I'm really excited to see what C.J. will do here in the next couple of weeks. If everything goes right he will play some in this [Thursday] game and it will be his first chance. He's had a spotty camp in that he's had a muscle issue that kept him out. That's a big addition as well. Alex Collins has played and Zac [Brooks] is going to be back as well and you saw our young guy, Pope, who did a really nice job."
Source and credits to /u/M3rc_Nate for the transcript. It could just be coach talk, but it's something to consider.
Here is one from ESPN:
TNF only really seems to affect QBs and TEs. Other articles only really find evidence for QBs sucking more. RBs don't seem to show any difference.
Actually, no. According to an ESPN.com following Williams' release:
>[Karlos Williams] can serve the suspension as a free agent if he is not claimed off waivers or signed by another team.
So, the suspension is over after Week 4.
Now, does that make him worthy of a pickup? I suppose it couldn't hurt if one has an extra spot on the bench. But his effectiveness will obviously depend on the team his is signed to. Of course, there's the chance that he doesn't get signed at all.
Five of Lacy's 12 carries went for 4 yards or more, including 2 runs for 13 yards each.
There were multiple times, however, where the Packers O-line got busted right from the snap, and got to Lacy before he could even get back to the line.
I don't understand why people try and throw out an arbitrary run or 2.
The issue with Lacy right now is he's not being utilized well in the offense, and Starks is just not as good of a runner as he is. The O-line has been horrid and isn't doing either of them any favors either. Despite that, he still averaged 4 YPC.
Source for the stat earlier: http://www.espn.com/nfl/playbyplay?gameId=400874545
(I just went through and counted up all of Lacy's runs for 4+ yards)
> Moncrief had exactly TWO games last year we had more than 75 yards.
The problem with that line of thinking is that we're looking to predict 2016's outcome rather than rely on 2015 results. The league shuffles up every year. We want to find Robinson and Hopkins etc before they break out
>This idea that they are 1a and 1b, while almost universally accepted, is a joke
When Luck played, their target numbers were almost identical.
>there are not many wrs who I trust more on a week in and week out basis than Hilton.
Hilton came in 24th in consistency rankings last year. He's a fine player but there are many more I trust week to week.
"If This Then That" is what you're looking for:
If there are any new league transactions, it will send an alert to your e-mail/phone. Here is the "recipe" I published:
> "Listen, we're not going to put [Bell] at wide receiver and DeAngelo at running back," Roethlisberger said. "But we will have them both on the field and move them out of the backfield. We're not going to take RB off the front of [Bell's] name and put WR. But I definitely think he is one of our best receivers."

According to weather.com, average wind speed of 17mph. winds ranging from 15 to 25 mph. Not much to see here. If you are deciding between two kickers and one of them is in this game you might give pause but I don't think It would alter my plans for any position.

Lets you connect apps - in this case making your own notifications.
He was not a clear RB1 in his starts last season.. While there are plenty of good games sprinkled in there, West had just as many good games, along with more touches & receptions. For the record, I'm not saying that Ware is not a good/superior player, just that there was enough uncertainty and proof that there could have been better players to start without hindsight.

Just heads up and consider the QBs/WRs/TEs/Kickers wouldn't worry about RBs or D/STs
Note: I don’t live in New York, I just googled the forecast.
Rainy and windy babyyyy. They’re forecasting 25 mph sustained winds with 48 mph gusts. The radio show hubby and I listen to was talking about how anything above sustained 20 mph winds does affect play regardless of the players, so all Bills receivers should be considered downgraded just for the week. I just need Bass to not go negative on me and I should have this week. I think this is going to be a run-focused game.
Good resource guide in the sidebar.
In general, I just use this board. News gets upvoted fast enough that if I sort by top/this hour, I'm going to get what I need without having to sort through Twitter's crap.
Mike Clay made a pretty compelling argument this week to Henry being overvalued. I'm not a Clay fan (by any means, really), but his logic was pretty clear here: http://www.espn.com/video/clip?id=17833321
I picked Henry up (actually even used my waiver on him this week), but this argument led me to accept a trade that got me Graham in Henry's place.
To give you an idea, this is a radar of the storm approaching: https://www.accuweather.com/en/us/pittsburgh/15219/weather-radar/1310
Higgins and Shepard are very close, but I’d lean Shepard if you want a more solid choice and Higgins if you think you need the Boom Bust potential.
Yeah looks like they're getting the worst of it right now (9:35 local). Supposed to clear up a bit around 12:45pm per Weather.com. Winds expected to waiver from 5–11mph through the game.
5 catches on 9 targets for 57 yards and a TD vs. a slightly better Denver Defense last year with AJ McCarron as his QB.
Agreed. Never bench studs.
You tell me:
My one league has a site similar to your wiki, with info, awards and stats dating back 6 years. We also came up with a formula to rank best teams and such. Complex. Also a weekly "newspaper"
My other league that I co-run has ~1400 (and counting) owners.
Guys.. stop trying to make ~~fetch~~ "contract year" happen. There is very little data to suggest that players in a contract year actually much perform better than otherwise. Here is one article that walks through data in more detail.
Worth noting that you can use pretty much whatever group-chat application you want, like Discord, GroupMe, or Slack.
It's probably done to simulate how the real NFL waiver system works. If a team waives a player, then all 31 teams have a shot to claim him based on their priority. If he clears waivers, then the other team can resign them. I found a link previously posted in r/nfl a few years ago where the Giants cut Ballard and wanted to resign him if he cleared waivers, but the Patriots blocked them and claimed him
I was mainly referring to the downvotes. All good.
I don't see average YAC mentioned much myself. Seems like it's usually total YAC compared total yards, or on a per-game basis.
If you look at ESPN's receiving leaders there a lot of stats, but average YAC isn't one of them.
Do we have any insider information about the parking lot attendants? I'd like to pick one of them up in hopes of this plan. I can only find info regarding past employees
i never understood this ice cold take.
nobody bats an eye when the Patriots have to travel to CenturyLink to play the 49ers, which is a 2,800 mile flight and Boston is 3 hours ahead of San Francisco.
but bring up London, two extra hours time difference, 300 miles further flight, and everyone loses their mind.
Looking at flights right now: it's quicker to get to London from Boston than it is to get to SF from Boston
Basically he said that Biscotti was bribing him with a position on the team in exchange for silence about how things went down, but in reality Biscotti was 100% serious and sincere when he said he'd always have a place here even if it wasn't as a player.
This may not be exactly what it was but it was along those lines. The full exchange is in the article below
haha Zynga's scary, we want to put the player before the profit. That's why we're working on ways to program the game for non FB login. For now though, bc it's in beta, we are using FB so that each time you go to LeagueHeads it knows what your bets are, which league you're in, etc. It's pretty much industry standard, but we agree that it's still not good enough and we're working to find a solution, perhaps this: http://techcrunch.com/2012/11/30/email-social-signup-rockmelt/
The best punt returner only adds around 400 yards per season and 0-2 scores, which is significant, don't get me wrong - but the best kick returners last year (Abdullah, C. Patterson) were both good for over 1k return yards.
Here's the link to Rob's article: http://www.espn.com/blog/green-bay-packers/post/_/id/33066/zero-to-66-in-one-game-getting-jordy-nelson-up-to-speed-could-be-tough-for-packers
I apologize for not using the story as the post link. I just now found the article. A Fantasy writer just quoted the tweet/story on Twitter

IFTTT. It definitely works for Yahoo, but I'm not sure about ESPN.
Essentially, it creates an "if this, then that" script that will perform certain actions based on a given trigger. It can do all sorts of neat things, but I use it to alert me when there's been a pick-up, drop, or trade, as well as any changes in my players' status.
It was a different update though:
A lot of people posting here don't really understand defense.
Seattle defense operates on a bend but dont break mentality.
They're actually 9th in receiving yards per game allowed. http://www.espn.com/nfl/statistics/team/_/stat/receiving/sort/receivingYardsPerGame/position/defense
But they are also tied for first for least receiving touchdowns allowed all season (4 & 3 of these were scored by Atlanta) and tied for 4th for least rushing touchdowns allowed (3) and tied for 2nd for least rushing yards per carry allowed (3.3)
> Miami isn't a great team so you would expect the Bills to be able to jump ahead early and then run a lot to protect the lead.
The situation for Gillislee this week is even better than you think. Miami is currently ranked #31 on run defense.
Gillislee is going to feast.
According to Matthew Berry here (I know I know but these articles ever year do hit the nail on the head perfectly sometimes): http://www.espn.com/fantasy/football/story/_/id/17433395/matthew-berry-bold-predictions-2016-fantasy-football-players-do-unexpected-things
>I say Kenyan Drake, currently going undrafted in standard leagues, finishes the season with the most fantasy points of any Dolphins running back. My thinking: The talented rookie certainly has big-play potential, and I don't expect Arian Foster or Jay Ajayi to stay healthy all year.
Obviously a lot of the things in this article that came out at the beginning of the month are wrong so far, but some of them are dead right, so you never know.
I agree, I think people keep forgetting how bad Gordon was when he came back for those five games in 2014. This article had a pretty good analysis of how poorly he did.
> According to ESPN Stats and Information, Gordon was targeted 48 times, ninth-most in the league. But he caught just 50 percent of the passes thrown his way -- which wasn't even in the top 100. His yards after catch was 12th in the league, with more than half his 303 receiving yards coming after the catch -- a direct reflection of the fact that Gordon caught mainly short throws and produced yards with runs. But to morph from a deep threat a year ago into a bubble screen guy just doesn't add up.
> ProFootballFocus.com uses their own metrics. That site determined that Gordon was the 26th overall receiver in the five games he played. He ranked 13th in targets, 25th in catches, 85th in percentage of passes caught when targeted and 56th in yards per catch.
Please, let this misinformation die
Ingram from last year. No dramatic fluctuation due to being away from home. Best game on the road at Indy. Best yards per on the road to the Skins. Another solid game on the road to Carolina with McCown starting.
Brandin Cooks with similar patterns. Yes, his worst games were on the road, but he also had a horrible game at home against Dallas and great games away against Philly and Washington.
Drew Brees is the only key player who showed noticeable shifts due to being away... and it wasn't from bad on the road to good at home. It was from good away to fucking remarkable at home.
I don't believe they posted it yet (if they're going to). You might be able to watch it here if you log in with your cable provider.

Mom and pop shop you'll have to look up yourself since I don't know where you live. But eBay is here. I ordered the first one on the page.
Mel Farr (Detroit Lions) did this in Michigan: After his retirement from pro football, Farr entered the business world, and in 1975 opened the Mel Farr Ford automobile dealership in Oak Park, Michigan. By 1998, the Mel Farr Auto Group grossed $596.6 million, making it the top black business in the United States and the thirty-third largest auto dealership in the US.
Larry Bird (Boston Celtics) did this in Indiana.
I may take a deeper dive into this at some point, but Christopher Harris of ESPN wrote an article about this last summer.

Since no one is bothering to look into Rotoworld's source article...
> a team source told ESPN's Ed Werder that Elliott will probably miss about a week.
Y'all can downgrade him over a single tweet if you want, but the Cowboys' first pre-season game is Aug 13th. If Zeke is still out then, I'll start to worry.
Hi all. I need weekly punishment help. I have lip syncing to a song, reading erotic story on film, and ice water dump so far. Looking for good ones that can be uploaded. Thanks guys!
Here's some from last season https://www.dailymotion.com/video/x27k9ds_shake-it-off-it-being-that-fantasy-loss_sport
I met the guy who was their first (and only at the time) web developer (co-founder of SourceGraph since then). He developed the whole site from scratch. They completely screwed him out of everything, his story reminded me a little of the story from The Social Network.
Add it to the list of reasons I don't visit the site
I got this championship belt for my league last year. It’s pretty sick not gonna lie.
Not customizable but very durable.
I would love to know where you are getting your stats from. How can moncrief be leading the team in targets when he has only played 3 games this year. And he has only beaten TY in targets once, and that was this past weekend... when TY got injured during the game.
Vincent Jackson the year he held out, I think, was really good when he finally returned
edit: he wasn't great, but if you had him in week 15, he won you that playoff game: http://www.espn.com/nfl/boxscore/_/gameId/301216024
The only issue with standard is that catching out of the backfield, he's probably not going to rip any big yardage plays. He also didn't see any RZ targets or carries, so that also limits his standard value. On the other hand, if he's playing dual receiver and RB duty, he may end up having enough volume where cumulative yards alone will do the trick.
That said, anything you read-- even if it's from the top experts-- is going to be mostly guesswork. For all intents and purposes, Dallas was his first game, and he saw a complete role change halfway through it. GB was also behind when he really got involved, so a lot of what he was doing was against a prevent defense who didn't really get what he was doing, as his play style is different than anything else that GB showed this season. He'll also be starting this game without Lacy or Adams, so it gets really difficult to accurately predict what his role will be.
Pretty much the only thing we know is that he'll most likely see a lot of targets for short yardage. Anything beyond that is complete speculation. I know this isn't super helpful, but unfortunately we won't know for sure until after tonight. And even then, things might change when Adams and then Lacy return. The best I can say is that he is a dice roll in standard, and only if you have a desperate need for upside. If you project your opponent to have a close score, go with the guys you know. If you need a wildcard, Montgomery could be it.
Straight out of the OC's mouth. CMike can't carry Rawls jock. Whole different tier of RB. You think if Lynch was still there, and missed a few weeks, he wouldn't get his job back from CMike when healthy? Well, Rawls IS their beast mode, he isn't going to lose his gig. The best Cmike can hope for would be a 50/50 split...and that is bar none best case scenario for him. I expect more like 70/30. We'll see.
>I have a gut feeling that Reed's career is over.
And this is based on..what exactly? Sure, its now his 6th concussion, but what's different about this one than his 5th. Im sure the same was said after his 5th, 'this is the end of his career'. No one here can say for sure unless theyre a friend, relative, or hold a position with Washington's organization.
Edit: just gonna leave this here 'Jordan Reed: Concussion History Wont Stop Me' http://www.espn.com/nfl/story/_/id/17835331
>I'd probably drop Walker after Jimmy Graham's bye.
I wouldn't. I roster two QBs and two TEs for the same reason.
> When are you benching Jimmy after the last two weeks besides this week for the bye?
I don't keep backups for bye weeks, i keep backups for injuries. Graham starts, but if and when he gets hurt or misses a week or whatever-- which happens to tight ends all of the time-- I'd much rather roll with Walker than burn bench spots streaming mediocre TE matchups weeks in advance. There is literally no one on waivers or FA right now that is worth a start in my league. If anything happens to either of my TEs, not worrying about bleeding points is huge.
Right now my bench has two RB, two WR, one TE, and one QB, with another lotto ticket WR on IR. If i have injuries to deal with, that's another story. But as long everyone's healthy, i'm keeping two top TE and two top QBs all season long.
I saw that speculative tweet by Albert Breer. Just for balance here's an item from Patriots beat reporter Mike Reiss. Obviously it's not definitive, but I'd put a lot more stock in Reiss
Had some technical difficulties, but hope to have made it reasonable. We've gone thru 45 prospects individually for the 2019 NFL Draft, including 16 of the Running Backs likely to play in the NFL. Now we expand our coverage to include the Best of the Rest. Today we look at some additional RBs, including Alexander Mattison, Myles Gaskin, Darwin Thompson, Travis Homer, and Devine Ozigbo amongst others.

IFTTT used to have amazing fantasy football alerts for things like this, but they changed their standard and Yahoo refuses to play along.
Your best bet otherwise is to make friends with an app developer and see if they'd be willing to write something that alerts you when a player is dropped. I thought about doing this myself, as the API documentation for Yahoo's fantasy service is pretty thorough, but since we use a waiver system and every roster change is logged as it happens, i lost interest.
If your use waivers, just check once or twice a day (i check league transactions every evening before bed especially on waiver night) and you'll be covered. Unless your league is making twenty moves a day, this should be more than enough.
Afternoon forecast for Arrowhead tomorrow if anyone wants to keep track of it. Currently predicting .3" of rain and 12mph wind for tomorrow afternoon so might not be too bad.
Tremendously insightful feedback, truly appreciated.
Re: Facebook, we (my two buddies and I) are definitely working beyond making it FB login only. The last thing we want is access to any of your personal info - the game just needs a way of making sure that when you come to the site it remembers what bets you've made, which league you're in, etc. Currently it's programmers' standard practice to use FB for identity verification, but we don't consider that "best practice." We're investigating less invasive ways to achieve this, such as - http://techcrunch.com/2012/11/30/email-social-signup-rockmelt/
Re: "Sway", we wanted to add a strategic wrinkle to the game that made LeagueHeads more complicated for the avid player to master but also slightly increased the odds of winning for the n00b. There was talk of charging for credits at some point way down the road, but our number one priority is to get as many people having fun as possible - and if charging $.10 to sway 1 point obstructs that then it's gotta go. Gameplay first, always.
He had two monster games at the start of last year, also, then didn't post over 100 yards again the rest of the year. I wouldn't quite go that far yet.
Charles tore both ACLs. Not the same one twice so his recovery rate is similar. ACL tears are Tommy John for the NFL. Used to be terrible, but the recovery rate is through the roof now. An ACL sucks, but doesn't scare me unless it's multiple times on the same knee; which isn't the case with Charles
This is from 2014
Edit: That's defense. This is offense http://www.espn.com/nfl/story/_/page/hotread141119offense/acl-injuries-all-star-nfl-lineup-recovered-knee-reconstruction-surgery.
Either way everyone tears their ACL and most players come back just fine.
