MoFo Fantasy Football 2020 - Regular Season
 
1 Attachment(s)


For what it's worth (and that ain't much), my draft grade was an A- and I am "projected" to go 13-0 and win the league. Of course that and $2.50 will get you a bus ride across town, but still.

I can only disappoint!

Got a C on my report card, but doing more with less is the story of my life :).

TONGO 08-29-20 08:26 PM

I didnt plan on drafting Tom Brady. I didnt even plan. I have argued Manning over Brady for years and LOATHED the Patriots ever since they ran up the score on teams so unmercifully that one season. I rolled my eyes when hearing Brady & Gronk were coming to Tampa, and dont think the Buccaneers offensive line capable of giving any QB a chance.


Sitting there in Round 6 I started thinking about it, but when Wylde Wolves grabbed Drew Brees I decided on it.


Brady to Godwin does sound like a nice connector. Should it be named "Bradwin" or "Goddy"? Ugh, I feel dirty with a side of hypocrisy.


Ezekiel Elliott and Todd Gurley on the same football team has a stupid high ceiling potential, but I was burned bad by Gurley last year. BAD! Between drafting him in the first round and Drew Brees missing most the season I ended up last place.


Has anyone ever followed last place with a championship win the next year? Let me just enjoy that fantasy until week 1 comes.

Re: MoFo Fantasy Football 2020 - Sign-Ups
 
I feel pretty good about my top three backs, even though I don't know how I feel about drafting three back to start the draft. I have Devin Singletary higher than most, so I kinda felt forced into taking him third. I didn't feel I had an option at another position to match the value. I am not high on my WR group unless CeeDee or Slayton really hit. AJ Green is a dangerous pick because he could either be rejuvenated by all the time off and the new QB or he could be over the hill. I like Metcalf, so hopefully he provides better than fourth round value for me. I really like Tyler Higbee, I think he could end up being way more valuable than where I drafted him at. Same for Rodgers and maybe even Cam. If Rodgers goes out and starts crotch-chopping the league, I'll be doing alright. I think the guy that could end being a dark horse factor for my team is Ryquell Armstead if Fournette and the Jags fall out like they always seem to be close to doing. I'm projected to go 3-10, but I think my team is better than that. It's more likely that I'll do what I've been averaging the last four seasons I played which is a game above or below .500.

Picking 8th obviously meant I was going to have to dig deep in this draft. A few notes:
1) mistakenly grabbed Chubb. When Dalvin cook Was in the board. I missed his name somehow. The person behind me grabbed him and I went ďwtf?!Ē
2) that being said, Iím still happy with the RBís that fell to me.
3) WRís...not so much. Theyíre ok, nothing great though.
4). TE position...I waited too long to grab a decent TE and didnít get any that I had my eye on. Thatís ok, I donít put much value at that position anyways.
5). Grabbed Brees, made Tongo draft Brady. No complaints.

Iím rated at C Which is what I had already rated myself anyways. Iíll likely hit the waivers if the WRís donít Produce much, but over all...itís not terrible.

Don't worry about the grade too much, those things are notoriously goofy. I'm not sure I've ever gotten a good one. It's been interesting wanting them try to automate fantasy analysis over the years. Some of it's kind of okay but most of it's a mess.

Anyway, welcome to the league! :) Be forewarned 90% of the talk is each owner complaining about injuries and/or screaming about how random it is they played one guy over another.

Re: MoFo Fantasy Football 2020 - Sign-Ups
 
Jacksonville just cut Leonard Fournette. Right before the season. Gonna win lots of superbowls making moves like that right before the season. Was prepared to draft him at 43, but he was gone as was Ingram who 7th snatched from me at 42. Fournette went a little early so depending on where he lands he could really turn into a stud. He had over 1100 yards last year. The guy can run. Crazy stuff. Please don't try to explain what Jacksonville is doing. They don't know what they are doing. I gotta wonder if some terrible story is about to break on Fournette. If there isn't? Wow. Great move guys.

Holden Pike 08-31-20 03:08 PM

Re: MoFo Fantasy Football 2020 - Sign-Ups
 
Yeah, I was doing a couple mock drafts ahead of the draft for my other league this Thursday and I saw his status change almost live. Went to N/A.

Hope he comes to Seattle. The last disgruntled running back they brought to town worked out pretty well for them.

The Jaguars are an incredibly stupidly ran team.

This is like identical to the Verlander injury news I got right after taking him with my first rounder. Though in this case I specifically moved down in the draft just beforehand.

Wheeeeee.

I have announcement to make: from now on Ryquell Armstead will be known as Nyquil Armstead because he is now the sleeper of the year and I will win the championship.


Regarding Kamara: @Yoda nice.

Powdered Water 08-31-20 08:03 PM

Re: MoFo Fantasy Football 2020 - Sign-Ups
 
So if I'm getting this right Fournette has been put to waivers and is only getting paid about 4 m's this year. How does the actual NFL waiver system work? I might have to go read up on this. Can't believe he'll clear. Does Jacksonville get some kind of compensation if he's claimed? At least if that happens they'll get a little something for him. Wow. What a crazy decision.

Captain Spaulding 09-04-20 12:48 PM

Re: MoFo Fantasy Football 2020 - Regular Season
 
I'm fairly pleased with how the draft played out. For once I was able to land many of the players whom I was targeting. I completed five or six mocks beforehand and in only one of them did James Conner fall to me at the end of the second round, so I was pleasantly surprised that he was there for the taking in our league. I think the Pittsburgh skill players are going to be a great return on investment this season as long as Big Ben stays healthy. I seem to end up with Mike Evans every year. I don't expect his numbers to fluctuate so wildly this season (last year he'd follow up a doughnut with 40+ points), even if his weekly ceiling is lower without Winston blindly chucking deep bombs into double coverage. Robert Woods isn't a sexy player, but he's good for 90+ receptions and 1200 yards. Even if he remains unlucky in the TD department, I'll be happy with that level of production from my WR2. I'm high on Will Fuller this season now that Hopkins has left town. He should be Watson's favorite target. It's just a matter of staying on the field.

J.K. Dobbins is going to be a fantasy stud in the very near future. It might not happen this season with Ingram still leading the backfield, but I think Dobbins will see enough action to at least serve as a decent flex with the potential of much, much more. Alexander Mattison and Latavius Murray are back-ups who could lead fantasy owners to a championship should they find themselves in a starting role, and the odds of that occurring aren't insignificant given the contract status/injury history of Dalvin Cook and Kamara. Chis Thompson is typically an afterthought on draft day, but he's a nice reserve come byes/injuries due to his PPR skills. With Fournette gone and the Jags likely to be playing catch-up most weeks, he could rack up some decent garbage-time production.

I got screwed at TE a little bit. I had my eye on several dudes in the mid-to-late rounds but landed none of them. Gesicki had decent numbers last year and will hopefully improve upon them this season, but I still consider TE my weakest position (along with thin WR depth). I probably should've drafted Ertz in the 5th round, which I strongly considered at the time before opting for Kyler Murray instead. If the trend is to continue of second-year QBs having MVP-caliber seasons (Wentz, Mahomes, Jackson), then Murray is the guy to do it. He was a sneaky good fantasy QB last season due to his rushing stats. With another year of development and arguably the best WR in the league now at his disposal, the ceiling is extremely high. I don't think it was smart to pick him over more proven commodities like Prescott and Watson, however, and I already feel some buyer's remorse about that.

I didn't know that swapping draft spots was even an option. I'll have to remember that in the future.

Curious what your thinking was and if your plan paid off. Seems odd to me to trade back just two spots into the draft. I assumed there must be some player you were targeting in the second round whom you were worried might not fall to you, but then you selected Allen Robinson with that pick when I think there's a good chance he would've still been available to you in the 3rd.

My thinking was I didn't like Barkley that much more than EE or Kamara, thought he had a little more upside but a little more risk and I'd rather have those two slots in the second. I was specifically targeting Robinson, realistically, and wasn't convinced I'd necessarily get him otherwise.

It's pretty easy to imagine this blowing up in my face, of course, since Barkley's very talented, but there were some rumblings about him missing a game and while I'm still pretty bullish on that offense, there's plenty of questions, and I'd rather look for my upside/risk in the middle rounds.

Yeah, highest compliment I can pay, as always, is 3-4 of the guys you got were guys I was probably taking next. :up: I think at one point in the chat I just typed "GET OUT OF MY HEAD SPAULDING." But I'm used to that by now.

I thought you were going Ertz, yeah. Was genuinely surprised when you took Murray, but I see the idea. It's a big bet. But yeah, I figured Prescott would be higher on your list even with that upside, since the floor is so much higher. But I get it.

I was probably going Ertz there, too, but he went one spot before me. In fact, in the 5th I had a bunch of targets I all liked and I think all of them went in the half dozen picks before me. So it goes. Gallup's a decent consolation prize there at least.

Captain Spaulding 09-04-20 01:24 PM

Re: MoFo Fantasy Football 2020 - Regular Season
 
I'm drafting first overall in my other league as well this weekend and I'm tempted to take Barkley. That way I'm not doomed in both leagues if McCaffrey goes down with an injury. I remember reading in a fantasy article awhile back that Barkley outscored McCaffrey during the last month of the season, when Barkley was finally close to 100% healthy after being banged-up most of the season. It wouldn't surprise me at all if Barkley finishes as the #1 RB this year. I think he'll be extra motivated after last year's relative disappointment, and new Giants OC Jason Garrett always did well by Zeke.

But then I look at McCaffrey's stats last season and he was in a tier of his own, and that was with a bunch of bums at QB, so it's hard not to just stick with the consensus #1.

Yoda 09-04-20 01:49 PM

Re: MoFo Fantasy Football 2020 - Regular Season
 
Yeah, I'd stick with him, but I get the meta logic there. Sometimes it's about winning leagues overall as opposed to winning each league individually. I'm just in one this year, though, but I've been in that boat before.

Saw that. He was way down on my depth chart as it was, but I will hang on to him for now, in case he lands on a team that might use him for 12-15 carries per game or so. I might need him for a buy week!

As inconsequential as it may sound the pick I was probably most excited to make was Justin Tucker. Living in Maryland not only is he the best statistical kicker in the league but he has that local pull. One of the people in my other league, which I am now entering my fifth year of play, always takes Tucker. Early. This year she took him with her THIRD pick, the 23rd overall pick in our 10-team league. Which is nuts. But it means obviously nobody else ever has a chance at getting him. With the point totals much lower in this league than my other (we use two more position spots and full PPR) I am hoping the strong foot and those 50+ boomers of Mr. Tucker may be the difference that puts me just over the top for a few victories this year. When he was still on the board as my ninth pick I just HAD to go for him. I ALMOST pulled the trigger with my 8th pick for him but breathed a sigh of relief when he was still there for nine.

If I get a few weeks where he winds up with 20 or more points - which he does every year - compared to my opponent who maybe only gets a single-digit performance out of their K I am going to be sitting pretty.


jiraffejustin 09-09-20 08:30 PM

As a Longhorn fan, I love me some Justin Tucker. This is always who Justin Tucker is to me:

TONGO 09-09-20 09:38 PM

Many owners laugh at those that put any value to a kicker, but not me. I know Sebastian Janikowski saved my skin on more than one occasion. Btw, Al Davis drafted him in the first round. That guy might have known a little bit about football.

Wyldesyde19 09-09-20 10:35 PM

I can attest to the benefit of a strong Kicker. For years I always grabbed Elam from Denver. In 2004, he was good for at least 15 points a game due to his foot.
I rode him and Tomlinson to a 11-3 record, after a 2-3 start, and blew it in the first round because I failed to replace him when he was on a bye.
I lost 83-71. 12 points! A kicker could have possibly changed that outcome!
I still donít know what happened, as I swear I had replaced him. I have yet to get over that.

I think you'll win Holden because I pity your opponents QB having to go against San Francisco. The 49rs are very sore about giving away last years Super Bowl. They may be dialed-in to win right out of the gate.


THE GREAT FLEX ADVENTURE
Episode I




My roster seems solid, except my Flex spot. Thankfully Kerryon Johnson will be the starting RB week 1 for Detroit, Jalen Reagor and Deebo Samuel are Questionable. Jalen is practicing in full though so he may play. Kerryons gonna be a temporary option, and when Jalen & Deebo are 100% I may have a tough time choosing in the future.

Quick note, I've turned on "ADD INJURED PLAYERS DIRECTLY TO AN INJURY SLOT." It's a good setting we've used in baseball for awhile, just means if there's a guy on IR you can pick them up and put them right in that slot. It's silly this wasn't a thing from the beginning.

Thankfully I noticed before the season started, and thankfully there's nobody really significant or valuable that fits this criteria, so I assume there's no objection or issue, but as always, lemme know if you disagree.

To balance the playing field a bit, I'm likely going to be without Mike Evans. He was upgraded from doubtful to questionable today, but his game is at 4:25 and all my replacement options play early. You'd think with no preseason that teams would have a clean bill of health for week one, but there's a lot of high-profile players that are either questionable or already ruled out for this week.

Looks like Henderson will play this week, so Akers is a giant question mark. Going to sit him for now, since he is listed as number 3 on the depth chart. Will be placing my flex hopes on Mr. Brown in BUF instead.

Manning always did more with less. Including coaching.

The Browns have the correct name, just saying.

They kneel right before halftime with a 24-6 deficit - seriously?

Just saying if my team did that I would be sad.

Kicking myself for benching Goedert in favor for Graham. Bone headed move. I went back and forth all week before the switch thinking Graham wouldnít have to share TE duties, while Goedert would lose opportunities to Ertz.
Gah

Yeah, that always sucks. Early in the season there's tons of coin flip kinda decisions like that. Honestly, it's at the point where sometimes I even draft or manage the team a little differently in hopes of avoiding those, since I'm not convinced it's even a skill to make those kinds of marginal judgments, most of the time.

Wyldesyde19 09-13-20 05:22 PM

Also, Jackson is absolutely destroying me

Aaaand Chubb just lost a fumble.

Oof. The worst thing about those is how often coaches lose faith in a clearly superior player based on a couple of fumbles, especially early on or in big moments.

Yay Thielen. My team's first TD of any kind today, disconcertingly late, but I'll take it. :laugh:

Graham reminds Trubitsky he still exists.
Iíll take it

Dobbins stole his touches. Including the Touchdowns

That's the problem with you big brained folks. You think you're so smart because you have arguments and thoughts and intelligence. The Browns suck because they are the Browns, but you brainy folks think that talent will change that because logic or whatever.

I'm gonna say this now while it's still true: Leonard Fournette has more yards with the Jaguars this year than he does the Bucs.

Oh man, after that incomplete you can 100% hear Brady yelling "f**k you 22, you bitch, f**k you!" Clear as day on the broadcast.

Gonna have to pump in a few more decibels of crowd noise to cover that up.

TONGO 09-13-20 09:11 PM

Jimmy Garrapolo might end up being my starting QB, cause at this stage in his career Bradys #s arent fantasy worthy. You sir are no Peyton Manning. Brady to waivers FTW! :)

Captain Spaulding 09-14-20 04:42 PM

I saw the reports around noon yesterday that Mike Evans would likely suit up, but he was expected to be on a pitch count and used mostly as a decoy. Last year he had a doughnut against the Saints even when healthy, so I chose to leave him on my bench due to all the uncertainty. He was held without a catch until late in the game when he grabbed a 2-yard TD. Those few points might be the difference in me winning or losing this week, since I chose the worst option from my bench to replace him: Chris Thompson (2 catches for 6 yards). :sick:

I thought Thompson would have an easy path to touches, with Fournette released and the next two RBs on the depth chart currently on IR. The Jags are also supposed to be tanking and playing from behind every week, which should lead to a pass-catching RB like Thompson racking up cheap points late in games. At least that was my line of thinking. He also had the highest projection, which probably factored into my decision. I'd forgotten that Minshew Mania was a thing for a reason. (I also picked the Colts in Survivor Football, so the Jags really stuck it to me this weekend.)

Now I have to sweat it out through both MNF games. I'm currently projected to win by 7 points, but that can change with one play. If Connor matches or outscores Barkley, I should be good, but Holden also has Phillip Lindsey in the late game going against my Titans defense. Easy to see my defense falling short of projections and Lindsey falling into the end zone.

Ah, the stress and frustrations of fantasy football, how I've missed thee!

Win or lose, I feel good about my team going forward. Very reassuring to see Kyler Murray have such a great showing against a formidable Niners defense. I've been beating myself up a bit for not drafting the safer Prescott, but as of now it looks like I made the right choice. It's a tad annoying seeing so many double digits on my bench when I started a guy who scored 1.6 points, but it's encouraging that my bench is already performing well.

Re: MoFo Fantasy Football 2020 - Regular Season
 
I took Jarwin kinda early because I was afraid he wouldn't make it around the horn again. One catch. Done for the year. Crazy. I didn't expect him to be like Andrews was last year for me. but I thought he'd be good anyway. Bummer.

TONGO 09-14-20 07:59 PM

Peteys offering me Big Ben for Brady. I probably wont being it's so early in the season, but I havent rejected it yet either.

Powdered Water 09-14-20 10:17 PM

Re: MoFo Fantasy Football 2020 - Regular Season
 
Now Mack is done for the year and the kid that sort of fell to me may become a stud. If he can stay healthy. Am I going crazier than usual? Why does it seem like most guys are done for the year when they get hurt? Especially in the last few years.

Wyldesyde19 09-14-20 10:27 PM

Can Gordon score 30 points for tonight? Crazier things have happened.

No stress. You were safe as I made the classic blunder of starting a defense. Yes, that's right, if I had left my team defense slot blank I would have won. After all my other failings and bullshit the -4 the Vikings earned me against Aaron Rogers and company sunk me.

Well, crap. My gamble on A. Brown as a WR1 looks to have been a mistake. I am hoping this is just an anomaly, and that he gets going as the season progresses. Alas, starting the season 0-1. Bummer.

Good win. You killed me with QB and WR play. I had already identified WR as a weakness.
Not panicking yet, as itís only week 1. The various WR I drafted did pick up plenty of yardage, so there is potential there.

Holden Pike 09-15-20 06:44 PM

Yeah, I am not pushing the panic button yet, either. I did at least find out that my backup wideout, Robby Anderson, is still capable of high ceilings from time to time. His unexpected 22.5 points kept me in the thick of things even when both of my two starting WRs were scratches. I wasn't really considering him as a flex position starter, but I sure am now. Assuming both of my receivers can get healthy here in the early goings.

I know The Giants are going to be pretty bad this year and that Pittsburgh was a tough Week 1 draw, but I expect over the year Saquon will be a good-to-great points generator. That Chris Carson had such a huge game is very encouraging. If he can get more routinely involved in the passing game that will give me a pair of potential RB1s.

Dak is Dak. Had his run into the endzone not been remarked down at the one yard line or that late ticky-tack call against Gallup had gone the other way he would have been absolutely fine, beat his projection, and carried me to victory. I was not super encouraged by the inconsistent play calls by the new Dallas regime (not going for the game-tying FG, then calling a series of dull draw plays when they needed to march down the field), but on balance he will be fine.

If Golladay and/or Sutton are able to get past these early issues I should be competitive every week.

In theory, anyway.

TONGO 09-15-20 07:14 PM

Yeah I'm 0-1 too.


Pleased with Ezekiel Elliott, 26.20 fps, but I lost my matchup because everyone else underperformed, not even hitting their projection. Brady doesn't count because his 24.46 fps were made possible due to garbage time. I'm gonna go against my instincts and be patient with him. Hes old and overrated but has the best receiving corps a QB could ask for around him, and even I think he'll end up doing better than Jameis Winston.


Only change I'm gonna make week 2 is putting a 2nd Tight End in my Flex, Detroits TJ Hockenson who scored 14.10 on my bench. Jalen Reagors playing hurt so they might be overly careful with him right now.


Other than that the best thing to do when everyone's playing badly is to just sit, wait, and hope. Oh boy! :)

Powdered Water 09-15-20 07:19 PM

Re: MoFo Fantasy Football 2020 - Regular Season
 
Clearly, I have the best team in the league. I'm down to call this thing right now and save everybody the fits of depression the rest of the season is sure to bring everyone. I'm just thinking of you guys and your mental well being.
