Here is a table I threw together to help track signings and rumors of signings and rumors of sightings and aliens and government conspiracies. I’m sticking to fantasy relevant players (and some not so fantasy relevant) and it’s late so if I’ve forgotten a whole slew of players hit me up in the comments so I can fix it. And if you have any scoops then leave them in the comments as well and make sure you wear a fedora with a white piece of paper that says “PRESS.”

    what will the boys do without roy?nice update for us thanks

  2. T-BZA says:

    This is hella cool Chet. One question; y’all looking to add any IDP content?

  3. Frank Rizzo says:

    Keeper question here. I don’t need to make any decisions until draft time in September but I’ve been mulling this one over a bit. I’m in a 10 team league, non ppr, that’s weighted slightly to TD’s. We can keep players in the round they were drafted so we obviously give up that round in the draft. For one of my keeper decisions, I will be sticking with a WR. I can keep Hakeem Nicks and give up my 5th round pick or keep Vincent Jackson and give up my 11th round pick. My plan was always to keep Nicks because he’s a freak and could be the #1 WR in fantasy this year. But V-Jax could be almost as freaky this year in SD. I’d like to keep that 5th round pick since I could probably get an upside RB there. I could care less about the 11th rounder if you know what I mean. So how much better do you like Nicks over VJax?

    Nicks in the 5th or VJax in the 11th?

  4. Dan Z says:

    Any reason the Lions dont have a spot on this list?

  5. Doc

    Doc says:

    @T-BZA: We always are. Hard to find good IDP writers.

    @Frank Rizzo: Yeah, that’s tough because of the rounds, but Nicks’ upside is pretty crazy. In non-ppr it does hel VJax some. I wonder if the Chargers will grab someone like Steve Smith? If that happens VJax might lose some targets. I’m leaning Nicks.

    @Dan Z: Just because they don’t have any offensive fantasy relevant players on the market.

  6. Ian says:

    I’m normally not one to brag, but in order to ask my question I have to show off my 2010 roster, which is ridiculous. This is a 10 team PPR league. We keep 1, start 3 WRs, 2 RBs and a RB/WR flex.

    My keeper options:
    Vick, Andre Johnson (my previous keeper), Calvin Johnson, Foster, McCoy and Charles.

    Yes, I won the damn thing last year. Charles, Calvin and McCoy were my first 3 draft picks and Foster hadn’t quite reached his highest ADP when we drafted. I lucked out. After punting QB and taking Kolb, I won the waiver claim on Vick. It was a helluva season.

    I’m a “punt QB” guy, so I’m not seriously considering Vick. And as good as Andre is, I’ve narrowed it down to the “big three” RBs.

    Every projection system says Foster is my guy. But I can see Charles actually being better than last year with a slight role increase. McCoy seems the safest as he looks like a lock for 70 receptions (as crazy as that sounds). Does Ben Tate’s presence hurt Foster at all? I mean Arian was great in the passing game and good on the goal line so he should be money once again.

    Go with Foster? I guess I might get a better feeling when your “run defense” schedule matrix thing-a-ma-jig comes out. Any advice? Thanks

  7. Dan Z says:


    Ah, gotcha.

  8. Dakota says:

    @Ian: Does it matter what round you drafted the player you decide to keep? Or does your keeper automatically come out of the first round if you decide to keep a player? Because if you took Foster anywhere after Charles or McCoy (and it appears you did) then Foster is a no-brainer.

  9. Are the Lions participating in Free Agency this year? Or do they just not have enough going on? And if you left them out cause, well, they are the Lions…that is understandable.

  10. Frank Rizzo says:

    @Doc: Doc, what if the Giants add someone, or keep someone……like Plaxico. What would that do to Nicks’ value?

  11. Doc

    Doc says:

    @Frank Rizzo: I don’t think it hurts

  12. Denys says:

    Keepers question:

    In one of my leagues, we can keep up to 2 (two) players that have been drafted in Rd. 3 or lower the previous year., and cannot keep players the previous year. Undrafted players can be kept as the last pick (two undrafted = last 2 picks).

    Here’s my dilemma. I have my choices narrowed down to:

    Player – Round can be kept (Round normally drafted this year)

    Philip Rivers QB – Rd. 4 (2-3)
    Jonathan Stewart RB – Rd. 6 (3-5)
    Vincent Jackson WR – Rd. 9 (3-4)
    Brandon Lloyd WR – Rd. 16 (4-5)
    Hakeen Nicks WR – Rd. 5 (2-3)

    I am having a real hard time deciding which 2 to keep. At this point I think Stewart is out of the picture, but would be a nice option if DeAngelo Williams moves. Rivers and Nicks are probably the best overall point options, but where I’m keeping them (a round or two later than they’re usually drafted) is not that big of a bargain. Lloyd presents the best value, I picked him up last year and he basically fueled my championship.

    Barring injuries, the realist in me says “go for the sure thing”. Take Rivers and Nicks with 4 and 5 respectively – square away a #1 QB and #1 WR right away. But the bargain shopper is thinking of keeping at least one of the Jackson/Lloyd simply based on where I can keep them and where they’re drafted this year. Value is a good thing to have, plus even if Lloyd doesn’t repeat last year’s haul, last round is a good place to take a gamble on it.

    There’s also merit in keeping Rivers and Jackson, and having a QB/WR combo every week.

    What do you guys think?

  13. Denys says:

    @Denys: part 2 of the 1st sentence clarification: cannot keep players KEPT the previous year (which I didn’t list as my options anyway so I guess just ignore this part of the sentence).

  14. Ian says:

    @Dakota: No, it counts as a first rounder no matter

  15. Dakota says:

    @Ian: I think you still keep Foster. I’d rule out Charles given his situation is less certain than Foster’s (KC has indicated they want to throw the ball a little more and Haley’s entire goal in life it to make fantasy owners furious) and the Chiefs have an incredibly tough end of the season/ff playoff stretch.

    I understand the thinking on McCoy, but if Vick’s healthy he vultures TDs that normally go to RBs (this is the same concern everyone should have with Denver RBs if Tebow is their starter). Foster is the safest pick of the bunch.

  16. Doc

    Doc says:

    @Ian: I think you have to go with Foster. It’s no lock for sure, but I just think he is the safest bet at this point.

    @Denys: I’d go with Nicks/Rivers. I don’t love keeping QBs, but Rivers is top 5 and others will probably keep QBs.

  17. Timmy riggins says:

    @Doc: Hi,
    Keeper question: 2QB, 2RB, 3WR (no flex), would appreciate your thoughts. (6pts for throwing TDs, 4 for rushing; no PPR)

    Big Ben – 5th rd
    Josh Freeman -10th rd
    Jamaal Charles – 10th rd
    V-Jax – 10th rd


  18. Timmy riggins says:

    10 teams

  19. Denys says:

    @Doc: i guess that’s my gut instinct too, so i’m gonna go with that.

  20. Cole says:

    Does the Hasselbeck signing in Tenn make you feel better or worse about Kenny Brit building on last years progress? He looked (to me anyway) to have more of a stretch-the-field tendencies than wanting to use his size to become a possession receiver that would make him a solid start in PPR formats.

  21. Dakota says:

    @Cole: Kenny Britt is Mike Wallace with a worse haircut and a worse head. But if he’s available late 7th, early 8th I’m making him my headcase.

    Though it’s still to be seen how many games Britt misses for his off-field transgressions. Perhaps one game per idiotic arrest. That could lower his value a few more pegs.

  22. Doc

    Doc says:

    @Cole: It’s for sure an upgrade. Hass isn’t going to make him a WR1, but it makes him more relevant. I do worry about a 4 game suspension. That will be the biggest factor in deciding where to draft him.
    @Timmy riggins: How many can you keep?

  23. timmy riggins says:

    @Doc: can only keep one
