  1. Seems fitting that, after losing Nick Chubb, who wears number 24, for the season, the Browns won on the 24th of September by 24 points.
  2. Not sure who is having a worse day…Broncos fans or Bears fans.
  3. Terry Funk was insane. I remember some of the bumps that man took during the Attitude Era when he was already old as hell. I always enjoyed his Chainsaw Charlie persona when he tag-teamed with Cactus Jack.
  4. I wouldn't say he did well in the first game. He averaged 3.1 yards per carry and 3.3 per reception for 44 total yards and only bailed out his fantasy day by scoring a touchdown. That being said, I'd expect him to have some decent fantasy outings this season because he's going to get the volume unless they bring someone else in. There are going to be games like Thursday night where he does nothing, but he'll have games where he scores a touchdown or two and he'll be fantasy viable. And that Vikings offense is going to get him some goal line looks from time to time. Their defense may not be able to stop anyone, but they've got an above average QB, the best WR in the league, and a top five TE.
  5. The fact that Minnesota never gave him more opportunity except when Cook was out had me out on him this year. If he were really that talented, they would have eased him into a higher workload until they phased out the older guy like Dallas did with Pollard. But nope. If Cook was healthy, Cook got dam near all the touches. Even last year when Cook looked like he was trending toward washed. I have no idea why Minny didn't attempt to bring in anyone else, though.
  6. Barkley - 1 year Gibbs - 3 years Love - 2 years Andrews - 3 years Pickett - 2 years Young - 3 years Mims - 4 years Atwell - 1 year Cleveland - 1 year Moody - 1 year Dobbs - 1 year Don't love keeping those QBs more than a single year, but I really don't want to go into next year's draft like I did this one without a single QB on my roster, and I honestly have no idea which of the three to bet on.
  7. If they could trade for Brissett, I think he's easily better than the corpse of Matt Ryan or Carson Wentz. Especially on a team with an elite defense and good receivers. Brissett can absolutely be a solid game manager on the Jets like he was on the Browns last year, and the Jets defense won't totally blow easy wins like the Browns defense did several times last year.
  8. Possibly the worst thing to ever happen to New York.
  9. 1-0 is 1-0. Defense got it done today. Bengals only field goal came off a pass interference call that gifted them decent field position. Did Tee Higgins play today? Didn’t notice him in the box score.
  10. Burrow with a career low in passing yards and pulled midway through the fourth. Thank fuck I no longer have to watch an absolutely goddamn inept Joe Woods defense.
  11. Basically you can sign a player for one to four years at whatever price you won them at during the auction.
  12. Yeah, Burrow’s extension basically made it inevitable that they lose Tee.
  13. Made it a full 24 hours before we got to call the Bengals a poverty franchise again.
  14. I'd like to swap in Dalton Schultz for LaPorta.
  15. Personally, I think autodraft ruins auctions, especially on Yahoo where the player values are moronic and certainly don’t reflect this league’s roster or score settings.
  16. QB Jalen Hurts QB Josh Allen QB Anthony Richardson QB Kyler Murray WR Keenan Allen WR Chris Olave WR Jahan Dotson WR Treylon Burks WR Elijah Moore WR Marvin Mims WR Tank Dell WR Wan'Dale Robinson RB Breece Hall RB Kenneth Walker RB Travis Etienne RB Cam Akers RB Rachaad White TE Sam LaPorta TE Dalton Schultz TE Michael Mayer K Cameron Dicker DEF Eagles I'm a little thin at the top at WR if none of my bench players hit, but I'm stacked at RB and QB. TE is whatever. LaPorta looks good and Schultz will almost certainly get targets on a Houston team that doesn't have any star receivers.
  17. Eh...seems fair for the consensus number two TE in an auction. And yeah, considering that Barkley, Chase, Garrett Wilson, and Lamar all went for less than $43 despite the fact that all will, if healthy, outscore Kelce significantly, it's a lot of money. Love Kelce, but when we've got this many starters, spending that much on any single one when you can get a guy who will probably score 80-90% of his points for less than a third of the money isn't the way to go. If this were TE premium, maybe.
  18. QB Lamar Jackson QB Matt Stafford RB Saquon Barkley RB Breece Hall RB Antonio Gibson WR Ja'Marr Chase WR Garrett Wilson WR Treylon Burks WR Van Jefferson TE Mark Andrews TE Jake Ferguson K Justin Tucker DEF Miami DEF Seattle BN Desmond Ridder BN Tyler Allgeier BN Zach Charbonnet BN Sam LaPorta BN Jonathan Mingo BN Jayden Reed BN Marvin Mims BN Kareem Hunt BN Isaiah Likely BN Jacksonville I'm happy with that team. I've got three top 10-12 picks in Barkley, Chase, and Wilson, plus Mark Andrews, who is generally picked around the 2/3 turn. Hall would have been a top ten guy too had he not torn his ACL last year. Going to need at least one of my rookie WRs to hit, though, because I'm pretty thin at the position after Chase and Wilson on paper. Although having those two guys will make up for some lackluster production from the other two spots. I'm pretty high on Mims (especially with Jeudy likely to miss several weeks) and Reed, and I wouldn't be shocked if Mingo is the top receiver on the Panthers this year simply due to lack of competition. I normally take a more conservative approach to auctions, but I threw that out the window this year and I think my two auction teams have been better for it.
