MikeGangGree... Icon : (21 April 2015 - 08:57 AM) GET RIVERS
MikeGangGree... Icon : (21 April 2015 - 08:59 AM) It's going to cost us 6 because we are going to have to outbid a bunch of teams
azjetfan Icon : (21 April 2015 - 09:52 AM) He is a good QB and I would love to have him. However IMO our 6 is not good value for us. Not to mention if he hates the idea of LA what is he going to think of NY? Contract situation would have to be worked out prior to trade as well. Extreme long shot to land Rivers. My money says we are more likely to land Brees.
azjetfan Icon : (21 April 2015 - 09:53 AM) which is still a very long shot
Chaos Icon : (21 April 2015 - 10:46 AM) he may just hate ownership. LT's comments yesterday was interesting.
Chaos Icon : (21 April 2015 - 10:47 AM) “I personally don’t think so,” Tomlinson said. “I really think this is a situation where Philip Rivers wants to move on. The reason why I think that and the reason why I feel like that is the Chargers have already approached Philip about doing another contract and he declined it. He doesn’t want anything to do with it; he didn’t even want to talk about another contract with the San Diego Chargers. That tells me that he’s thinking about moving on.”

“You never want to trade your franchise quarterback,” Tomlinson said, “that’s never the case. However, in this situation they might have no choice but to do so because I don’t know if Philip [Rivers] wants to be there anymore. I think he’s lost confidence in the organization. He’s seeing a lot of changes going on and the L.A. thing is valid; him not wanting to go to L.A., that is very valid, I can see that. So no, it doesn’t make sense to move on from Philip because he’s a franchise quarterback and he still has three to four very good years left.”
Chaos Icon : (21 April 2015 - 10:47 AM) missed the LA line. nvm. guess that is a legit concern.
Mr_Jet Icon : (21 April 2015 - 03:57 PM) He doesn't want to play for a franchise based in Los Angeles, but he'd be okay with playing for one based in New York City?
azjetfan Icon : (21 April 2015 - 04:28 PM) That's the point we have all been making.
MikeGangGree... Icon : (21 April 2015 - 07:05 PM) Jets vs colts Monday night week2
MikeGangGree... Icon : (21 April 2015 - 07:09 PM) Jets open at home against the browns
ganggreen2003 Icon : (21 April 2015 - 07:52 PM) Week 5 Bye after the London Game against the Dolphags
NJAzrael71 Icon : (22 April 2015 - 09:17 AM) Rivers is likely going to Tennessee. Would LOVE to have him here but we likely won't make the trade. I'd easily give this year and next year
NJAzrael71 Icon : (22 April 2015 - 09:17 AM) 's first rounder for him
azjetfan Icon : (22 April 2015 - 11:03 AM) IMO that's a steep price. I would swap this years first and a conditional 1st next year. Assuming we make the AFC Championship. That would be a 28-32nd pick. Otherwise a second.
MikeGangGree... Icon : (22 April 2015 - 01:07 PM) Yes 2 1st is a lot
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (22 April 2015 - 01:10 PM) draft is next week, pumped
Chadforpresi... Icon : (22 April 2015 - 03:02 PM) What are thoughts on getting a RB in round 1? McShay's newest mock has us taking Gurley at 6. I don't think we should take him that high, but if we trade down and he's available I'd love to snag him, ACL and all. He's got an unreal skill set that, once healthy, will translate readily to the NFL. We're not getting a QB this year without paying a king's ransom, and unless we pay a ransom for a top guy I say ignore QB. I don't want us to take a Hundley or Petty type in the 2nd or 3rd round when we need other pieces (edge rush, OL)
azjetfan Icon : (22 April 2015 - 03:09 PM) We can probably get Gordon in the second. I would pass at 6. If QB is not available a pass rusher will be. Our biggest needs are QB Pass rusher and Oline.
Jetsfan115 Icon : (22 April 2015 - 03:34 PM) any thourghts on shane ray? i see a lot of mocks have us drafting him
Jetsfan115 Icon : (22 April 2015 - 04:35 PM) last one i seen had us taking cooper, a RB, and hundley for our 1st 3 picks. not thrilled about that
Chadforpresi... Icon : (22 April 2015 - 04:38 PM) I don't like Gordon much. Not much of a receiver or blocker, ball security issues, tries to bounce outside too much, stuffed frequently. Gurley is in a league of his own
Chadforpresi... Icon : (22 April 2015 - 04:39 PM) Ray is pretty highly regarded. I'm betting he, Dupree, and Gregory will be our best options as well as edge rushers at 6, but I think that's too high for any of them
Chadforpresi... Icon : (22 April 2015 - 04:43 PM) Personally love Cooper, I know WR isn't our biggest need but he may be the most NFL ready guy in the Draft. If we stick to the 6th pick and Fowler, Beasley, and Mariota are gone, Cooper is the guy to get. I'd even take him over Beasley
Jetsfan115 Icon : (22 April 2015 - 05:45 PM) i don't mind cooper. decker isn't number 1 IMO and marshall is expensive and getting old
Jetsfan115 Icon : (22 April 2015 - 05:45 PM) and we never draft a WR high
Jetsfan115 Icon : (22 April 2015 - 05:45 PM) but o-line and QB are huge needs. i wouldn't take o-line 6th overall, but i think our 2nd or 3rd should be o-line
Jetsfan115 Icon : (22 April 2015 - 05:46 PM) we need an OLB as well. if we don't land a QB i'd like to see OLB adn O-line with 2 of our top 3 picks
Chadforpresi... Icon : (22 April 2015 - 08:16 PM) I agree on Deck, not a true #1 and he's had a checkered history with injuries. Marshall has 2, maybe 3 productive years left, which is why Cooper is an option
Chadforpresi... Icon : (22 April 2015 - 08:17 PM) And I agree with you on edge rusher & OL being bigger needs, but there really isn't a lineman I'd take at 6
Chadforpresi... Icon : (22 April 2015 - 08:19 PM) So the way I see it, assuming Winston and Mariota are taken when we're at 6, that Fowler and Cooper are our best choices, and I'd be stunned if Fowler drops. I wouldn't be surprised (or upset) if we land Cooper
NJAzrael71 Icon : (22 April 2015 - 08:47 PM) Apparently Tennessee wanted both of Cleveland's #1's and their 2nd rounder to move up to the #2 spot to get Mariota. Still think two 1st rounders are too much for Rivers? He makes us instant contenders and if we make a deep playoff run, it would really be this year's 1st and what equates to basically a 2nd rounder next year.
If not, get Cooper in the 1st and then grab Hundley in the 2nd and O-line in the 3rd.
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (22 April 2015 - 10:05 PM) I wouldn't be upset with Cooper, hes a stud
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (22 April 2015 - 10:06 PM) Not sure about Ray. Dupree is rising on the draft boards, ridiculously athletic for his size
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (22 April 2015 - 10:07 PM) Dupree is 6'4 270 and has a amazing get off and runs a 4.5
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (22 April 2015 - 10:09 PM) Problem is he doesn't have big sack numbers in college, I rather draft a productive guy high
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (22 April 2015 - 10:09 PM) Vic Beasley is insanely athletic as well and was hugely productive in college, good bet is that Beasley will be a 10+ sack guy in the NFL
NJAzrael71 Icon : (22 April 2015 - 10:12 PM) Beasley should be a stud but he gets caught up hand fighting if he doesn't beat his guy quickly. He'll likely end up as an OLB but we'll see
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (22 April 2015 - 10:15 PM) He'd be a good fit in our defense, because we could use that speed guy on the outside
Chadforpresi... Icon : (Yesterday, 06:27 AM) I'd love Rivers, but we should be able to get him without paying 2 first rounders
Chadforpresi... Icon : (Yesterday, 06:29 AM) Lot of buzz about Dupree going top 10, most mocks I see have us getting either Ray or Dupree at 6. I prefer Dupree, like you said insane athlete for his size
Chadforpresi... Icon : (Yesterday, 06:30 AM) I like Beasley as well but I have a strong feeling Washington will snag him. But he is a small dude, it'd be nice if he'd add some bulk (in Clemson reportedly played around 230)
Chaos Icon : (Yesterday, 10:11 AM) @ArifHasanNFL

.@LanceZierlein says on http://sports790.com that Shane Ray will need surgery on foot, 5 months recovery. "Could drop out of first"
Chaos Icon : (Yesterday, 10:14 AM) this should change up the top 10
Chadforpresi... Icon : (Yesterday, 12:16 PM) Damn that's big. If he drops out of round 1 that could be a massive bargain for whoever gets him round 2. Dupree now looks more like the edge rusher we'd get at 6

My Fantasy Football League Is Today!

I have my local FFl draft at two today, so I'll be posting the results either early tomorrow (dark outside early) or midday. There is a poker tournament afterwards, so who knows when things will wrap up. I also have an on-line draft tomorrow, so even I might be worn out of FF by the end of the weekend.

Anyways, I have Willis McGahee (yes, of the Bills) as my keeper and I have the first pick in the draft, which I am planning on using on Kevin Jones. After that, who knows?

Wish me luck (as if anyone reads this board, but still).

KEvin Jones? Yes he's good but don't you think you could do better? In fantasy you should always have at least one dominant player, preferably a QB but a RB is probably best. Kevin Jones may not have the receiving yards necessary to be a dominant fantasy running back. The Lions have too many good receivers for me to foresee Jones getting alot of catches.
I changed my name, but I dont remember what it was... if anyone remembers please let me know.

sit on jones. who knows, he might slip to your second pick (probably not) LT is the hands down first pick for me and most of the people i know. jones wont have the recieving yards LT is gonna have and the rushing yards and tds will be somewhere close with LT having a little more of each. you can't go wrong with him.

Guys..it's a keeper league, meaning someone already has LT and therefore a player of kevin jones' caliber is going to be a solid pick with the first of the draft. Good luck a1!

Yeah, LT was kept, so I didn't really get a shot at him. But thanks for the ideas...

Anyway, here is my team, in order that I drafted it. The format is 1QB, 2RB, 2WR, 1flex(RB or WR), K, Def, TEs count as WRs. I had the first pick, so after the initial player I was choosing two at a time:

Keeper-Willis McGahee
1-Kevin Jones
2-Curtis Martin
3-JJ Arrington
4-Marc Bulger
5-Jimmy Smith
6-Lee Evans
7-Deion Branch
8-Mushin Muhammad
9-Santana Moss
10-Matt Stover
11-Lions Def/KR
12-Paul Edinger
13-Steve McNair
14-Jaguars Defense/KR

Curtis Martin fell all the way down the board to me with the 19th pick, which means 28 players were gone before him. He was the 19th RB taken and, get this, I was actually laughed at for taking him! The league's leading rusher, and only two of the other owners though I got a steal.

Bulger was the third highest scoring QB in our league last year, but I got him after eight others were off the board. I wasn't going to take a QB because my league usually lets a really good one fall into the late rounds (last year I had Plummer and Leftwich, both of whom outperformed a lot of other owners' starter), but I couldn't pass on a guy who could finish the season as the top QB.

My plan is to start McGahee, Jones, and Martin every week and move receivers around as necessary. But I really like Smith and Evans, and the other three guys are all starters who could have good games through out the year.

All in all I got better than I thought I would. No way did I think I could get Martin as my third back, nor did I think I would land Bulger after the 3rd round. I personally think I am one of the elite teams in the league, but we'll have to see. What do you all say?

a1 you're a savvy drafter. You don't go for names which shows an obvious wealth of football knowledge. i think your team is very good, but we dont know the rest of your league so that is all relative. Not that you need it but here's my advice... stay on top of your FA and look for a steal there. All my leagues are won because I was smart enough to pick up a surprise stud after a few weeks.

The other good teams in the league are:

P.Holmes
C.Dillion
FTaylor
TJDuckett

JWalker
RWayne
CChambers
TJHoshmanzadeh
DStallworth

TBrady
DBrees

JReed
LTynes

BillsD
SkinsD

LTomlinson
RJohnson
TBell
LSuggs

MHarrison
HWard
DBennett
TWilliamson
JMcCareins

CPalmer
BLeftwich

JWilkers
Kasay

CowboysD
BengalsD

AGreen
DMcAllister
LJordan
CBenson

SSmith
JPorter
IBruce
KMcCardell
DPatten

BFavre
DCarr

AVinatieri
MVanderjagt

PatriotsD
VikingsD

JLewis
EJames
MBennett
THenry

JHorn
LColes
DDriver
EMoulds
MRobinson

KCollins
JPlummer

SJanikowski
NRackers

EaglesD
ChargersD

The other five teams aren't all that bad, but the owners made some bad mistakes. One team took Gates as it's number one receiver, one took TO as it's number one and then waited until all other teams had four RBs to draft his reserves so he wound up with Faulk and Ricky Williams. The other three just have really questionable RBs that are either really injury prone, are set to split carries with another good back, or are already back ups. My favorite is the second team. If Bell gets the majority of the carries he has a great set of backs and receivers.

I tried to draft really solid, reliable guys this year. I got away from that in the last one and my whole team bombed from the start.

team #2 if definately the favorite IMO in that group. Strong team top to bottom sans the D. The Bengals and the Cowboys are not very good at all for a D. Maybe he'll get lucky or make a trade to improve that area. I think you can hold your own until the end where if you're doing a playoff you can win by simply having a few good weeks in a row.

Yeah, he is a Cowboys and Bengals fan. Plus he drafted them after about a dozen Defs were off the board so he didn't really have a lot to choose from.


On a unrelated note, I was supposed to be in a FoxFantasy draft right now and I couldn't get into the draft room, just kept saying it couldn't load. I know at least some of the other owners could get in, so I'm not sure what the problem was. The whole site was down for almost a week earlier, so I am washing my hands with Foxfantasy.

You're only slight weakness is probably in the WR department where you failed to get a top 10 wide-out imo..but since you start 3 RB's, you should be fine. I might have taken a WR where you took JJ, otherwise solid draft.

Yeah, I sacrificed starting receiver quality for being able to start three RBs every game. I didn't want to end up with an iffy 4th back as I was commited to the RB flex position.

Still, I really like the depth of my receivers. I think I have better 3rd-5th receivers than several of the other teams. Also, I really like Smith and the Jags offense this year, so he was by far my favorite receiver at that point. I almost got Steve Smith, but he was taken one spot before me.

I was worried I might catch some gruff for having so many Patriots and Bills on my team, whew!

I'll take Bills or Pats, but there sure as heck aren't going to be any Dolphins on my team...and not just because they aren't worth drafting.

Good luck with that draft, $500! Wow.
