true-detective-season-2

Tehol and I are back again with another Podcast, as we went over my rankings of Tight Ends, Kickers, and Defense & Special Teams. If you wanted a teaser, my tight end is ranked first, in all things. If you know what I mean. Oh, you do. YOU DO. We also talked a little bit about the current news in the NFL, which is basically Antonio Gates being suspended for four games. How does that affect his ranking? Well, we answered that, and then devolved into our, what is now traditional, miscellaneous part (56:05) of the cast, and since there’s no Game of Thrones to talk about, we dive head first into the first three episodes of True Detective, promptly hitting concrete. We seriously have no idea what the ef is going on in this show… I mean, I do, and I tried to explain it, but then my computer exploded. But don’t worry, we found a little time to talk some Game of Thrones… FOR THE WATCH.

    Hey, Jay! I’m in a 12 team ppr keeper league. I’m trying to decide on keeping either Mike Evans or Jeremy Hill. Do I go Hill based on how the scarcity of the rb position this year? Thanks!

      @Jerry: That’s… a tough one. I’d say with the scarcity at the RB position, I’d go Hill. But man, you could honestly flip a coin there.

        I know! I keep going back and forth with it. I do have the fifth pick in the draft, so I should have a shot at a top 5 rb. Does that change any of the percentages on who to keep, or is it still 50/50? Thanks for the help!

          @Jerry: If that’s true, I’d actually try and keep Hill and grab a top RB again, and just corner the market.

            Yeah, I thought about that too. Thanks for all the advice, it’s much appreciated!

    Hey Jay I wrote in a previous post not sure if you got it here it is again

    Hey Jay, getting back into the swing of things for fantasy football 2015!

    I’m the commish going over the settings for 2015; this is the 2nd yr of this league & it’s a keeper we keep 2 players. But looking at the settings I didn’t realize for team defense / sp teams that you can set points for kickoff & punt returns & there’s a micellenous category for the same thing so prob if I added that & I have someone for the likes of Antonio brown , etc I could get points for a kick off / punt return.

    – have you been in a league where there are points accessed to team defense /special teams , or just added micellenous for kickoff & punt returns.

    For kickoff / punt returns looks like it can be as followed;
    Every 1, 10, or 25 kickoff or punt return yards. If I did maybe every 25 kickoff & punt return yards equals 1 point. Or do you feel it’s a waste of a caregory.

    Now on to my main Q, the keeper, it’s the first time we will be doing keepers ; can select any two players from the 2014 team, first two rounds are for keepers & it won’t affect where you selected the player in 2014, then the snake style draft begins round 3.

    Just reactivated the league so I can view the roster to see who I want to keep, I have only 3 that are keeper worthy; Demaryius Thomas, Odell Beckham, & Jeremy Hill.

    & this keeper setting is year to year, we can pick new keepers for 2016, we aren’t stuck w/ these players forever.

    & the keeper lock date as of now is an hour before whenever we decide on the draft (it’ll prob be in Sept the Sunday/Monday before that first game of the season on Thursday sept 10)

    But would you recommend leaving it an hour before the draft or lock keepers let’s say 2 or 3 hours before the draft Or even much earlier that day if the draft is 8/9 pm?

    Lol I know it’s a lot just trying to get ready for the season! Thank you!

      @Gridiron Gary: Ah, might not of, this didn’t ring a bell.

      I haven’t been in a league like that, but I’ve heard of them. I would have it be locked up at least a week before the draft, but that’s just me.

    10 team PPR picking 10th in snake draft. Keeper question. Gronk in 2nd or Hyde in the 14th? Thanks.

    • Jay

      @Tim: I’d rather get that value of Hyde in the 14th.

    Hey Jay, another keeper problem for you to take a look at:
    We can keep as many as we want, but each keeper is a draft pick (keep 2, start draft in round 3, etc) Here’s my team, I don’t know where I’d pick in the snake:
    QB: Brees, Romo
    RB: Forte, Hill, Mason, Lamar Miller
    WR: Dez, Kelvin, Boldin, Jennings
    TE: Coby Fleener
    I also have Wagner and Watt as IDPs, but I don’t know whether they should be kept.
    Won the league as the 4th seed in the playoffs last year. Yay
    Thanks alot!

      @Troy: Hmm, I’m pretty sure Watt is a keeper. So is Forte, Hill, Dez and Kelvin… I’m liking that setup at the moment. Maybe pick one QB to keep. Brees probably.

      • Troy says:

        And begin my draft in the 7th round?

        • Jay

          @Troy: I think you could argue that all of those guys would already be drafted in those rounds.
