  1. Just beat the team with Metcalf this week and he actually needed a win to make the playoffs. Now I'll be rolling in the fantasy playoffs with Renfrow as my WR2. Good call on the no trade, @Godfather
  2. Wow. Maybe you should get some Powerball tickets or something, because that was impeccable timing. 1 catch for 13 yards. That's less than Jalen Reagor's 2 catches for 31 yards this week and we already know he's 🤮 Sometimes the best trades are the ones you don't make 😂 Thanks @Godfather
  3. Yeah, I think I'm going to hold off on a trade. Looking at my bench, Mark Ingram will probably end up being expendable once Alvin Kamara returns and same can be said for Tevin Coleman once Michael Carter returns from his injury. I can try to drop one of those two for Jarvis Landry if I can land him on waivers, otherwise I think I can get by with my current WR group. On the flip side, I have locked in a playoff spot with my win this week in this league with one more week left before the fantasy playoffs, and there's no bye week that's up for grabs in our 4 team playoff format. I normally like to explore the trade market and have had success in the past finding a player or two that can help me in a playoff run, however I'm not sure if I have enough depth to feel comfortable making a splash trade. I'm probably better off starting Hunter Renfrow at WR2 until I have a reason not to. With the Packers on bye next week, I'll be able to experiment with Chase Claypool or Van Jefferson at WR alongside Renfrow for a week before getting the roster into playoff shape.
  4. With CeeDee Lamb it hinges on getting a trade partner, can't really hold that against Howie, and if you really want to defend Howie, Metcalf had injury concerns coming into the league, so I guess I can understand that (but reaching for WR instead of drafting a different position still didn't make sense) At the bare minimum, passing on Justin Jefferson with how productive he was in college for a premier SEC program, was simply inexcusable. So I do agree with you there. Howie's drafting woes are definitely holding this team back, but I would actually prefer a young veteran WR2 from free agency/trade so we can focus on rebuilding the defense
  5. Hurts definitely did not play as well as he has in previous games with his 3 INT, but Reagor's performance really stands out as concerning with all those drops. Starting WR is still a big team need this offseason, Devonta Smith is our WR1, but with today's game you ideally have 3 guys you can rely on. Quez Watkins could potentially be one of those guys, but we've seen enough from Jalen Reagor and JJ Arcega-Whiteside to determine that they aren't cracking the top 3 WR on any reasonably good team.
  6. There's another owner who is on the outside looking in for playoff contention with RB2 trouble. He has Saquon at RB1 and just picked up David Johnson this week to fill in since Chase Edmonds is on IR. His WR are Keenan Allen, Tyler Lockett, Ceedee Lamb, Antonio Brown, Jerry Jeudy, Jamison Crowder His RB are Saquon Barkley, Chase Edmonds*, David Johnson, Jeremy McNichols, Devontae Booker Thoughts on trying to trade for Keenan Allen or maybe even Ceedee Lamb if I'm feeling like taking a risk?
  7. Jarvis Landry Michael Gallup Marvin Jones Allen Robinson Emmanuel Sanders TreQuan Smith Darius Slayton Marquez Valdez-Scantling Nick Westbrook-Inhine Laviska Shenault I have Julio Jones in my IR spot with Chase Claypool and Van Jefferson on my bench at WR. My other bench players: Dawson Knox, Mark Ingram, Rhamondre Stevenson, and Tevin Coleman Starters: QB: Tom Brady RB: Austin Ekeler RB: Darrell Henderson WR: Davante Adams WR: Hunter Renfrow TE: George Kittle FLEX: Cordarrelle Patterson D/ST: Titans K: Matt Gay
  8. So I offered Stevenson and Renfrow for Metcalf and the trade was declined. Not a huge surprise as I understand it may be pushing it a little. However I'm not so sure that I want to break up my RB trio of Ekeler, Henderson, and Patterson to upgrade at WR, given how scarce quality RBs are in relation to WR. It might be better to roll with Renfrow and my other WRs (Chase Claypool, Van Jefferson, Julio Jones) and just use the best play of that bunch on any given week at WR2 and hope for the best?
  9. Rnd 1 (MIA): DeMarvin Leal DT Texas A&M - Fletcher Cox's contract was restructured in a way that he could not be moved before the trade deadline, but he actually can be traded in the offseason with a more reasonable cap hit, in the event the Eagles can find his replacement in the draft, which I have them doing here. Javon Hargrave has proven that he can he can hold his own as a starter and Milton Williams has shown some flashes as a rookie as a rotational DT. Rnd 1: Kenyon Green OT/G Texas A&M - The Eagles double dip from the same school with their first two picks for the second year in a row, and fortify the offensive line. Jason Kelce will likely retire after this season, opening up a starting spot at center. If Landon Dickerson moves back to center, the Eagles will be relying on two guards coming back from IR (Isaac Seumalo and Brandon Brooks) to return to form and start, which is a tall task. Green has played all 4 positions on the OL outside of center for A&M and has done it fairly well. He can start at guard as a rookie and can be groomed to replace Lane Johnson at RT down the road. Rnd 1: Kingsley Enagbare DE South Carolina - With Brandon Graham another year older and coming off a major injury, Derek Barnett regressing since his promising rookie debut, and Ryan Kerrigan providing nothing of statistical significance, the Eagles find a new starter at DE to pair alongside Josh Sweat. The Eagles pass up on the highly regarded DE prospects from the Big Ten (Hutchinson, Karlaftis) with their earlier picks and pick up a prospect from the SEC that projects to be a better schematic fit for our 4-3 defense. Rnd 2: Roger McCreary CB Auburn - Steven Nelson is an impending free agent, which leaves a hole at CB2 for the Eagles. Darius Slay and Avonte Maddox have played well in their respective roles at CB1 and slot CB, but it's about time the Eagles invest another premium pick on a DB, and one can even argue for one of the 1st rounders being used on a one. In any case, we continue the SEC theme here with McCreary. Rnd 3: Brandon Joseph S Northwestern - Rodney McLeod and Anthony Harris are both impending free agents and it is unlikely that the team re-signs both players this offseason, but given that McLeod is a team captain on defense, I think he makes it back another year to help mentor the young players on the defense, especially if the team moves on from Brandon Graham this offseason. K'Von Wallace was considered a value pick when he was drafted but never really panned out as a starter, so the Eagles go back to the drawing board and select Joseph, who projects to be a SS based on his size and skill-set. Rnd 4: Phil Jurkovec QB Boston College - Surprise pick here. While Jalen Hurts has shown signs of improvement during the 2nd half of the season after the team's commitment to the run game, Jurkovec has the traditional prototypical QB size at 6'5 and 225 lbs and has experience playing in a pro-style offense at Boston College after transferring from Notre Dame. With the Eagles having two smaller QBs on the roster in Hurts and Minshew, they add a big-bodied pocket passer to the "QB factory". Jurkovec falls because he missed most of the season due to injury and could very well go back to BC for another year, but in this mock he goes early on Day 3. Rnd 5: Tre Sterling S Oklahoma State - Sterling falls in the draft after undergoing season ending wrist surgery in September and missing most of the season, but possesses the coverage skills to play FS and is an injury stash with upside late in the draft. Rnd 5: Ainias Smith WR Texas A&M - Jalen Reagor is looking like a bust and Greg Ward might not be re-signed by the team, leaving Devonta Smith and Quez Watkins as the only starting caliber WR on this team. Smith can push Reagor for the slot WR position and at the very least brings as skillset as a KR/PR. Rnd 5: Rachaad White RB Arizona State - Jordan Howard is an impending free agent and the Eagles have three RBs on the roster with similar skillsets in Sanders, Scott, and Gainwell. White is a big back at 6'2 and 210 lbs and would add an element of the power run game to this offense, which will come in handy on short yardage and goal-line situations. Rnd 5: Andrew Vorhees OG USC - Another developmental OG prospect for Jeff Stoutland given all the injuries we have had at guard over the past few years.
  10. Is DK Metcalf someone to target as a buy low candidate in PPR with Russell Wilson easing his way back into injury? The owner in our league is on the fringe of playoff contention and also has Jamarr Chase and Mike Evans at WR, with Evans as his Flex. I am considering packaging Hunter Renfrow with an RB to attempt to trade for Metcalf in a PPR league. Renfrow is my WR2 right now after Davante Adams and I normally go 3 deep at RB including my flex (Ekeler, Henderson, Patterson). I'm thinking Renfrow and Rhamondre Stevenson might be pushing it, but some trade charts actually show it being pretty close in value. Otherwise, should I consider breaking up my RB trio to upgrade at WR, maybe trade Patterson? My gut says no due to scarcity at the RB position. There's also an owner with Chris Godwin as his WR1 with the same record, on the verge of playoff contention, who might need another RB. Would he be a better target?
  11. I'm entering a similar situation this week with Alvin Kamara still fighting off injury and the Chiefs on bye so CEH and Darrel Williams aren't helping me this week either in my free full point PPR league. Putting in multiple waiver claims to help my RB situation (I lost in this league and have 3rd pick on waivers): Devonta Freeman, Tevin Coleman, David Johnson, Devin Singletary, and Jeremy McNichols are guys I put in claims for and are among the best available RBs in my league. My current remaining RBs: Rhamondre Stevenson vs TEN Jeff Wilson Jr. vs MIN Alex Collins vs WSH Thoughts? Who to start at RB1 and RB2 if Kamara is still out. Flex will be covered by my WR depth in this league, debating Mike Williams vs Hunter Renfrow this week, but also have guys like Van Jefferson and Emmanuel Sanders that can be picked based on matchup in specific circumstances.
  12. Very realistic mock. I like the Leal pick and even if he projects to only be a DT in our 4-3, I think the Eagles look to trade Fletcher Cox in the offseason, opening up a starting spot on the interior DL. As good as Linderbaum is, I just don't see the Eagles drafting a C in the first, after using their 2nd round pick on Dickerson in this past draft. This is probably nit-picky, but if the Eagles go OL in the first I think they actually go for a OG/OT type prospect in the 1st round. If they had a top 5 pick, I'd even argue that Evan Neal from Alabama is a legit candidate, although he's more of a pure T despite starting out at guard at Alabama. Lane Johnson is entering his 30s and the team will need an RT of the future at some point. Johnson is also an offseason trade candidate, although less likely than Cox, since he hasn't had significant regression in his play and could be a key piece on this team the next few years. Gardner is a solid choice at CB in the 1st round. This FO needs to start using premium picks on the secondary. 2002 is way too long ago to still wait for this FO to use another 1st rounder on a CB. 1979 for a LB is even worse (some argue Marcus Smith is a LB and would say 2014), but in any case I'm not holding my breath that this FO will take a LB in the 1st round. 2nd-3rd is the earliest I can see such a pick made.
  13. Rob, I agree with you here, especially with the strides that Jalen Hurts have made since Nick Sirianni decided to make a solid commitment to the running game. As other posters have stated in the past, the best way to maximize Jalen's skillset is to cater the offense to him like the Ravens do with Lamar Jackson. I have been on the fence regarding drafting a QB in the first versus staying put for some time, but I were to make an updated mock today, it would not include a QB in the 1st round.
  14. I would stick with your gut here and leave it as is
  15. Tough situation, but I'd start Stevenson and keep the flex spot open, that's what I'm doing in both of my leagues. I don't think he'll get 20 pts again tonight, but I like his chances of scoring a TD in the redzone and splitting enough snaps with Harris to at least get you 10+ pts as an RB2 in PPR.
