I sure hope not. I’ll probably be without a job.

Re: 2019 Fantasy Football General Thread

Completed my first dynasty trade of the offseason. It's variation of what we discussed above. I traded Jacobs, Josh Allen and Robby Anderson for DJ Moore, Conner and Samuels.

I just think DJ is a star if he gets the right QB. And I'm not sold on Jacobs with the way they used him last season. Anderson was buried on my team, and I don't mind giving up a QB to get a RB, even if it leaves me with little at QB. I think Conner is undervalued right now and could get back to doing what he did in 2018 with better health and Ben back. This leaves me with amazing WRs for a 12-team half-PPR league, though with little depth at RB. We can start up to 4 WRs (2 RB, 2 WR, 2 flex).

WRs: Tyreek, Godwin, DJ, Julio, TY, AJG, Fuller, Mike Williams, AB
RBs: CMC, Conner, Guice

At QB, I only have Fitzgerald but I know the guy with Mahomes is looking to move Dak.

Re: 2019 Fantasy Football General Thread

Your RB's took a big hit for a minor WR upgrade. Don't like it at all.
Jacobs needs to prove something to you? Even if not a "3 down back" which are few and far between, his usage as a 2 down back is top tier.

I like Moore but no way I'm parting with Jacobs.

Re: 2019 Fantasy Football General Thread

Well, my rosters are always in flux. I'd say DJ is more than a minor upgrade over Robby! Sure, he may be a minor upgrade over TY in my lineup, but I'll be making other moves. I may be biased against Jacobs because I didn't watch him at all until I traded for him during last season. Then I watched a couple games with frustration as he got yanked every 3rd down, then had him get injured and sit on my bench as I started Adrian Peterson in the championship game. I think DJ Moore is a star and I'm just not sure about Jacobs. I think Conner could have a big bounce back season, and maybe I was influenced to offer the trade after seeing the comment from the coach today that he likes having a bellcow and still sees Conner as that guy.

Re: 2019 Fantasy Football General Thread

Jacobs' talent jumps off the screen to me. Watch his highlights from the GB game. That's also the game that he broke his shoulder and continue to play the rest of the season until it was clear they were out of the playoff hunt.

I like DJ also but that's a trade that's going to sting for awhile imo.

Don't fell bad though, I gave Chubb and Kittle away for Mixon in dynasty.
This is while Hue was still the coach and giving all the carries to Carlos mofo'ing Hyde.
FU you Hue!!!!!!

Re: 2019 Fantasy Football General Thread

PPR league or na? If it's PPR, I don't think it's that bad. If it's .5 PPR, I'd probably rather have Jacobs. If it's standard, then it's a terrible trade lol. I'll assume it's a full PPR league.

If it's PPR, the big problem with Jacobs is he really doesn't get much work in the passing game. Sure, he will have some games where he goes for 150 and 2 TDs. But he is also going to have those really annoying games where he carries 20 times for 60 yards and 0 TDs. And if the Raiders fall behind fast (which they've been known to do), then Jacobs really isn't worth ****. He averaged 1.5 catches a game.

If you believe in Conner like you do (I don't), then you might have won on just the Jacbos/Conner swap. I believe that Tomlin wants Conner to be a bell cow. I do not believe Conner is capable of that roll. I don't think his body can handle it.

Obviously DJ > Robby, especially now that Robby is a #3 or #4 on the same team as DJ haha.

I do not like giving up Josh Allen when all you have is Fitzgerald, even if you think you can get Dak. Especially with the addition of Diggs alongside John Brown, Singetary, etc. Josh is a high floor fantasy QB. I'd rather you have thrown in one of your other receivers, but I'm guessing the guy you were trading with really needed a QB.

I assume Samuels is Jaylen Samuels?

As a Panthers fan, I'm really not sure how to feel about DJ. And that's mainly because of the QB situation. I do think DJ is a baller.

Teddy is not very good. I know he was alright starter in Minn, but that was years ago plus a complete knee blowout ago. We've seen the rodeo where an okay backup QB comes into a great situation for a few games and then gets paid by another moron team (read: my Panthers). He had talent (Thomas, Kamara, Murray, etc.), a great coach, and a great system to help him succeed. The Panthers are rolling out a college coaching staff under a pretty big rebuild.

The one thing you have going for you is that the Panthers defense will be absolute trash (we drafted all defensive players this year lol), so we should have to throw a lot. Having CMC is nice because he will be THE offense.

In Teddy's 6 games starting last year, he averaged 22 completions, 33 attempts, 231 yards, 1.5 TDs passing. And he had the best receiver in the league. His average of around 7 yards per attempt was the lowest in the league for qualifying QBs.

Re: 2019 Fantasy Football General Thread

Yeah, it’s half-PPR. I’m feeling some regret on the deal but more in the value than the core players. If I had gotten Kirk in place of Jaylen Samuels, I’d be good with it. But we’ll see what subsequent deals I can make. There’s a couple teams that badly need WRs and have some RBs to trade, and I have arguably 4 top-10 WRs with depth behind them.

Do you have any draft picks? May have to be sure to get that Steelers rookie RB to lock up the backfield.
I was able to dump Samuels for a 3rd rounder last year and was fistpumping but possible big Ben can make him relevant again.

Re: 2019 Fantasy Football General Thread

Well, hopefully he’ll just make Conners relevant again! No, I traded all my pics to go for the title last season. I may still have the last pic in the 3rd.

I'd try to trade Godwin for a tier 2 RB. I'm a little bit concerned about his volume with Brady and Gronk coming to town. Not to mention, Tampa should be playing with more leads and likely throwing less. Then again, Brady and Gronk will probably only be there for 2 seasons top. Dynasty is tough haha.

I'm definitely reducing Godwin's value for this upcoming season, when he will likely be one of the top 5-7 WRs off of the board in re-draft.

I wonder how much Brady will try to get Arians to go with the RB dominant attack like he had in NE. TB's RBs aren't great, but they can manage. We've seen what Brady can do with what appears to be average RBs. Brady and Jameis and they way they affect WRs and RBs is very different from both a regular football and fantasy standpoint.

Obviously, you already have the top RB in the game. I doubt you'll be able to get Kamara, Cook, Barkley, or Zeke. Maybe you can target someone like Aaron Jones. Although, Aaron will likely regress on his TD production, but I still expect him to easily be a top 10 fantasy back.

Fantasy RBs leave a lot to be desired after the top few lol.

I love Kirk.

Side note: I think Diggs is going to BEAST in Buffalo.

Re: 2019 Fantasy Football General Thread

Well, I know the guy with Barkley is a Cowboys homer who has told me he will only trade him for Zeke. The guy with Zeke also has Henry and Gurley but nothing at WR beyond Chark and no draft pics. I’ve offered him Godwin and his choice of any two WRs from TY, AJG, MWill, Fuller for Zeke and he’s declined. I’ve offered him Godwin and Conner for Zeke and he’s declined.

What do you think of DJM for 1.3, RoJo and Gallup? That guy also has 1.1, 1.2 and 1.6. He was last place last year and is in a complete rebuild, so getting a RB with the first two pics and adding an already proven young WR with the third pic would make sense.

Re: 2019 Fantasy Football General Thread

Who do you want with the 1.3?

I think it's pretty standard that whatever team receives RoJo in a trade is the default loser in said trade.

Re: 2019 Fantasy Football General Thread

I’d take who is there from CET, Taylor and Dobbins. My first offer would be DJM for 1.3 and 1.6, but I was looking at that as possibly the lowest I’d take.

Re: 2019 Fantasy Football General Thread

In before Brady makes RoJo a top 10 fantasy RB.

I think the trade idea is decent. Gallup could actually produce similarly to DJM. I doubt the other guy goes for it, though.
