The difference maker in this league, is that there are no negative points.... so that helps make the QB that throws 30 TD / 18 INT just as valuable as the one that throws 30 TD / 7 INT. That said, Luck is still outscoring every position by a wide margin.
So, I bailed on a few leagues this year... but I have a PPR / 2-QB league I'm drafting for tonight. I've got the 5th overall. The top 4 should be AD, Leveon, Charles and Lacy... I'm thinking about taking Andrew Luck and then looking to go after guys like Blount, Martin and Ivory, plus a few of the rookie RBs, later in the draft... Luck scores about 50-75 total points more for the season than the next best anyone. I feel like Luck is going to be a 5 point weekly advantage over the next-best QB, and 10 point advantage over most. I can draft well enough to counter not having an "expert-approved" stud RB. I am always good at landing guys from next year's crop of "studs" anyway.
$50+ million doesn't guarantee anything. It's the decisions you make in how you use the $50+ million, plus what you do with the other crap you inherited. I didn't say they deserve that consideration now. I said "if".
I've been saying it since we traded for him... he was a very good QB last year with a good system and players around him. My biggest concern with Fitz has been him recovering from the injury in time to get the reps he needs to re-establish his mechanics and lower-body strength... both of which would in fact effect his accuracy and arm strength (which we've heard gripes about so far).
Nice addition. I like it. I think it's interesting... I mean, that's what week 4 of the preseason is for: letting the roster depth slug it out for a spot. Far better to see 3rd stringers in competition than Rex callously anointing scrubs.
Geno didn't throw the punch. I didn't say "pissed", I said disgusted... as in, not feeling Geno as a leader. Doesn't mean you outright cut him, but you don't want to build around him, if you don't have to... and if they keep looking for an alternative, they clearly understand they don't have to.
