I would definitely be interested in this If there is room. I have a very good track record in keeping up with drafts and leagues, even though I haven't been posting as much as of late.

Twiddler
08-04-2008, 02:37 PM
Alright, I'm ready to go. I'm just letting you guys know that tomorrow I'm having shoulder surgery and I'll be doped up for a few days so if I make any suspicious picks, that'll explain it, haha.

08-06-2008, 10:43 AM
so, i'm not entirely sure i'll be around for the draft...but, i ranked the hell out of my players. and usually i have way more success that way than when i'm actually there to make stupid impulse picks. i'll try to be around though.

princefielder28

08-07-2008, 07:52 AM

ah well..i thought it was awesome that the Favre trade happened during the draft.

princefielder28
08-07-2008, 10:33 AM
i'm looking to move Laurence Maroney and Willie Parker if anyone is interested

EvilMonkey
08-07-2008, 06:50 PM
well, i fell asleep halfway through the draft and ended up with 4 QBs, willing to trade Garrard, Rivers, or Lord Favre (McNabb too, i guess, have plenty of depth). Need depth at WR and TE, but would definitely consider any position.

princefielder28
08-07-2008, 10:01 PM

ok...i'll take a look tonight or tomorrow sometime

Big win for me with Stallworth not playing and Addai leaving the game. Thomas Jones is going to be a beast this year.

princefielder28
09-08-2008, 11:03 AM
I got a nice performance from my crew

badgerbacker
09-08-2008, 11:59 AM
Freaking Tom Brady...

umphrey
09-08-2008, 01:19 PM
I feel for you on that one, I really do. I drafted Brady in my other league. I almost took him at #5 and I would have if someone picked Addai instead of SJax. I considered Brady/Moss the safest and best picks in R1 if you could use a later 1st rounder on them.

EvilMonkey
09-08-2008, 04:20 PM
I feel for you even more. Had Brady and have Kevin Curtis as well in my money league. League actually uses 6 points for a passing TD so yeah, I went to having the guy that scored 120 more than anyone else in the league last year with our settings to pretty much screwed. Super-deep league, my waiver wont get me Cassel and I'm pretty much praying to get Trent Edwards at this point. Needless to say I am not confident going forward.

badgerbacker
09-08-2008, 09:54 PM
I'm trying to debate whether I try to make a move or try to see what Matt Cassel can do. I mean, I could probably be a top-15 fantasy QB with Randy Moss.

Twiddler
09-09-2008, 11:31 AM
I'm looking to get some depth at WR and have some runningbacks that I'm looking at trading. They are Ricky Williams, Chris Perry, Felix Jones, or Fred Taylor. Shoot me an offer if you are interested.

umphrey
09-16-2008, 12:02 PM
Are people still interested in this?

I love the way my team is shaping up, even though 2 of my top 3 picks have been disappointing so far

I have the only elite QB in the league now (Romo)
Addai and Housh will get going soon, they faced tough defenses in week 1 and 2 and Addai's line will improve
Winslow, Thomas Jones, Edge, Chambers are all gonna show up every week
I've got a roster full of hurt receivers that are gonna come back and give me the depth I need (Stallworth, Reggie Brown, Deion Branch)

I'm ranked #1 right now and I think I have no where to go but up, but this week I play drowe who is gonna be tough who also has some really cake matchups.


The past 3 years I've found a RB gem late in the draft and I don't think that's gonna happen this year. 3 years ago I held onto LJ for 8 weeks, Priest got hurt and he was the leading scorer. 2 years ago I drafted Maroney and he had some breakout games, I traded him for 2 good players and it worked out great. Last year I drafted ADP as my backup RB and we all know how that went. This year I have no clue.

princefielder28
09-16-2008, 03:02 PM
I've been keeping track

Pacific
09-16-2008, 03:22 PM
Yeah, I've been following it but I haven't needed to make any moves or anything. I guess if someone wants to swap a receiver for Roy Williams I'd listen to offers.

Twiddler
09-16-2008, 03:29 PM

badgerbacker
09-16-2008, 11:13 PM
My team is terrible. It might be the worst fantasy team I've ever seen.

drowe

i f'd up and started mcgahee last week. oops. i'm still working towards defending the title.

roughrider30
09-17-2008, 02:22 PM
Ya I accidentally started Colston too. I'm glad im on top of my teams so far this year.

Twiddler
09-24-2008, 01:10 PM
So it turns out my team is pretty bad, should be interesting at least.

umphrey
09-24-2008, 04:14 PM
Chambers is on the trading block for me...not sure if I'd be able to pull a trade until after this week though

EvilMonkey
09-24-2008, 05:05 PM
i still have Favre, Rivers, McNabb, and Warner if anyone wants to trade for a QB. Just looking for another flex option at WR/RB for the bye weeks, wont take a ton to get Favre or Warner.

Sportsfan486
09-24-2008, 11:25 PM
Chambers is on the trading block for me...not sure if I'd be able to pull a trade until after this week though

I just traded Chambers for Braylon Edwards. Classic sell high/buy low right there. Chambers has benefited greatly from the injuries to Gates and LT and had a great first few games. LT is back and Gates has said he's getting better, thusly his numbers will drop.

On the other hand, Edwards put up 16 TDs last year. He has none so far. He's going to start getting in the end-zone.

I'm also working on a deal for two of my backups, Big Ben and Marvin Harrison, for Steve Smith of the Panthers. If that falls through I'll at least be able to get Lee Evans.
I also just got Colston off waivers, lol.
That will make my team as follows.

QB - Aaron Rodgers
RB - LT, Ryan Grant, Matt Forte, Lendale White
WR - Plax, Reggie Wayne, Smith or Evans, Bowe, Colston
TE - Gates
Kicker - Nick Folk
Defense - Using the versus worst offense approach which has netted me about 15 points each week so far.

Yeah, it's pretty freaking incredible. I'm on top of my league right now and already gearing up for the playoffs.

umphrey
09-30-2008, 09:41 AM
Another win, time to start gearing up for the playoffs.

With Reggie Brown, Donte Stallworth and Deion Branch all just getting healthy, time to DOMINATE

10 minutes before game time I remembered my kicker was on a bye and made a quick waiver wire move that gave me the W

Twiddler
10-10-2008, 12:54 PM
If anyone is curious, I'm taking offers for LT. They'll have to be good obviously, but still, it doesn't hurt to send one.

umphrey
10-14-2008, 03:22 PM
Thomas Jones and Romo both had huge days, and almost everyone else got a 0 (if not, they were close). Even my defense got a 0. It's hard to imagine not getting a single sack or turnover.

umphrey
10-20-2008, 01:11 PM
Damn Mewelde Moore and his 30+ points. If not for him I could have stole a win while MASSIVELY short handed at WR and no Tony Romo.

I picked him up the night before, I knew a big game was coming from him.

Anyone wants to trade me a healthy receiver, I'd be thrilled.

I'll give up any of my running backs, just expecting something around their value in return

Addai
Rhodes
Edge James
Pittman
Thomas Jones

Week 14 (next week) there are the first 2 playoff games

(4) Jackalope vs (5) Roughrider30
(3) Pacific vs (6) GB12

umphrey and Twiddler have byes, play the winner of those games respectively

I like RR by a hair
And Pacific, but GB might take it if ARI scores 30+ points against STL, very possible

Twiddler
12-09-2008, 09:58 AM
Even if the Packers are sucking, we still have the fantasy playoffs to keep us occupied, right? Well, at least four of us.

And best of luck to you, Pacific.





I'm not sure I really mean that, I am kind of pulling for myself afterall...

I didn't know there was a limit on WW transactions til week 8 or so and I wasted a lot of them :(

Sucks Winslow went down he's so inconsistent but he's one of my favorite players so I always draft him anyway.

Good luck Jackalope

Yeah, the WW thing got me too, but I managed to catch it a little earlier and wasn't in such a huge hole.

umphrey
12-15-2008, 10:12 AM
I have the H2H win and overall record win so I think however you want to slice it, it goes to me. We probably should have said something in advance but who knew this would come up?

GG

In the future maybe use these tiebreaker guidelines? The NFL guidelines don't really work for us since we don't have divisions

GB12 are you going to be putting together this league again?
Yeah, I most likely will. I'm guessing you're asking because you'd like to be a part of it? Well the 12 from last year will all be invited back and get the first shot at a team. If any of them don't want to do it again or don't get back to me I will be looking for replacements. It will not be first come first serve, but you would stand a good chance at getting in if there is an open spot.
