One of the sickest playoff beats I have ever seen. Stutters has gotten pretty unlucky all year long though so it was time for him to experience some positive variance.

Re: 2013 Fantasy Football Dynasty League $100

Just saw a mock dynasty start-up draft where Josh Gordon went #1 overall. Pretty sick rise to elite WR for him.

Re: 2013 Fantasy Football Dynasty League $100

Yeah he is. I certainly wouldn't draft him #1 overall but I already have three knuckle heads on my team so I know how it feels. Blackmon really set my team back this year.

It's my understanding that during their rookies years NFL players are randomly drug tested. After that year though, they get tested once during the preseason and they are told months in advance when they will be tested. All they have to do is stay clean their rookie year and for a month and half before their test the rest of their career. LOL at guys who can't do that.

Plus they really should stop testing for marijuana anyway. It's a pretty decent option to help players deal with the pain of playing in the NFL.

Re: 2013 Fantasy Football Dynasty League $100

So we all agree that even eliminated teams need to dress full rosters, right? Just sending out a little pre-reminder to someone who only has one TE on his team, and that TE is on IR

To be honest, had I won, I would have considered THAT the sickest beat I've ever seen. Honestly 48 or whatever out of the QB, when you have the WR1, and still losing? That would have been disgusting. It's like every TD went to anyone but Marshall.

As long as they are playing for something (like the 5th place game), I agree they should have to field a full lineup.

I don't think the consolation bracket should be forced to, since it only hurts them (since winner get a free 2015 buy-in), but they should just in the interest of fair play.

Well it's everybody or nobody. Guaranteed if he dresses Gronk at TE this Sunday, I'm not dressing a full lineup. We gotta have consistency.

Why?

Who cares if the two teams in the 11th place game field a full lineup? That game means literally nothing in terms of draft order or anything else important.

Because anyone not filling a full lineup can stock up guys for next year. You could drop your K/DST/TE whatever and just grab as many prospects as possible. That's not kosher in my books.

I agree with this completely. It is unfair for the teams still in contention to allow other teams to drop their K/D/TE and pick up guys like Ahmad Bradshaw, Jermichael Finley, Malcolm Floyd etc etc etc for next year.

This is particularly true or the 5th/6th place game as we have not even established how the draft order will be for the playoff teams. If the top 6 picks is finish order in the playoffs, then Rafiki is actually encouraged to tank (and pick up these IR players) and even get a better draft spot for doing so. That is perverse.

Re: 2013 Fantasy Football Dynasty League $100

Then lock the rosters of teams with nothing to play for.

All I'm saying is that if a team no longer has a meaningful game (like the 11th place game) then it's not really necessary to require them to field a full team. That's doesn't mean said team is going to start stashing players, as I agree, that shouldn't be allowed.

However, look at Jets Suck. He's in the 11th place game (which means nothing). He currently has Welker starting at WR, who won't play Thursday. If he doesn't bother bother replacing him, it's no harm to anybody.

It astonishes me how dumb you are. I hope "reading comprehension" is not one of your job requirements.

Rafiki is (understandably) upset that Hanster is currently starting Rob Gronkowksi in one of these meaningless games. If Hanster was in contention, he would be forced to drop Gronk (or another player) to pick up a TE. Since Hanster does not have a healthy TE on his roster, it is the equivalent of dropping a K/D/TE to stash a guy since he has nothing to play for.

Moreover, the bottom 6 already have their draft picks set. However, the playoff teams obtain their draft order by their playoff finishes. So not only is Hanster improperly "stashing", he is actually benefited (higher draft pick) from doing so. Rafiki (again understandably) thinks this should be disallowed. If it is not, he thinks he should have the right to do the same thing.

And the commish obviously cannot lock team rosters. If a guy has a career ending injury or a young player breaks out this Sunday, teams not in contention must be provided the opportunity to submit a waiver claim or drop a guy.

Jesus man, I'm really glad you're in this league to provide a $100 donation every year.

lol kuta. Have fun in two years when GOAT leaves and you're team is mediocre at best.

lol @ saying I suck at reading comprehension. Did you just skip half the posts on this? Here's how it began...

Rafiki thinks eliminated teams should have to field a full line-up.

I agree with rafiki, as long as that team is still playing for something that matter (like a 5th place game). So I'm not sure how you think this means I think hanster should be allowed to not field a full line-up.

This is where rakifi says "everybody or nobody".

All I said was that teams with nothing to play for (like teams in the 11th place game), don't really need to bother setting a line-up.

You and rafiki apparently took that as "Eliminated teams may stash people for next year at will without consequence." Good job, good effort.

You guys realizes it only Wednesday, right? That means it's another four days before game-day. Just because hanster hasn't picked up somebody in the ~12 hours since the waiver period ended, doesn't mean he isn't going to in the next four days.



JFC, it's getting obnoxious that the tiniest **** always becomes some long, drawn-out argument.

How about this; If hanster doesn't field a full-lineup, he wins his match-up by default. Giving him the worse pick of the two. Easy enough? Or do you need to make a bunch of other retarded posts that just end up going off topic and talking about how I'm donating every year and blah blah blah?

Re: 2013 Fantasy Football Dynasty League $100

More LOL that you think my team is trash. Just shows how little you know. I didn't even draft for this year, and I only fell one game short of the playoffs. Plus I have two top-4 picks this year. Yeah my team is terrible....

Yessss. The moron bites. I get to destroy him again and expose his idiocity just like when he thought he had a great chance at making a run this year.

So again, I propose to you heads up $100 bet every year. Basically, loser pays the winner's entry fee for the following year and the bet cannot be cancelled for the duration of this league. Surely your team will be better than "mediocre at best" right?

Rafiki is completely right. Why should a team in the 11/12 match-up be permitted to have a team devoid of a healthy TE? The "stashing" impact would be the exact same. Seriously, I don't know how else we can explain this to get this through your thick skull.

LOL! You're like a child. You are unable to make a coherent or rational argument, so you're reduced to just making snide comments and posting annoying GIFs. Lastly, did you notice in the last sentence how I used the word "you're" correctly. Take some notes champ.

I'm fine with doing some yearly bet. We'll talk about it at the draft. Until then, I'm done talking to you. Every time I read a post of yours, my IQ drops.

Try not to play in traffic before next years draft.

You're going to beat me pretty easily. Look at the match-ups. I really needed Rodgers back against Dallas and I think I would have been in good shape but now I have to start either Campbell or Cutler coming off an injury.
