Like the title spoiled, the table is set, the forks and spoons are in their right place, and hopefully there’s food ready and on the way. In terms of the RCL universe (since I’m hungry and if there are any more food metaphors, I’ll eventually end up eating my keyboard), the “league” has taken shape and drafts are soon to begin over the next several weeks. (But that doesn’t mean you still can’t create and join your choice of RCLs after the jump!) And, I want to touch on what I just stated above: when I say “league”, I mean league, not leagues. Because ef pluralization… I mean, what has it ever done for me? Regardless, you have to remember, this is one complete universal league. The Milky Way of Fantasy Football if you will, including Antonio Brown, Saturn, and of course, Uranus. Don’t roll your eyes, you knew it was coming. (Just like your mother.) What I’m trying to say is, join any league you like, create as many as you want, and be part… of the universe. Mutha. Effing. DEEP.

TO START A LEAGUE:

Just send over an email to [email protected] with your requested Draft Date and Time, and we’ll setup the league for you! No work, no worries, no, err, I really couldn’t think of another word that starts with “w”. Like wagonette… Which is a carriage with one crosswise seat in front, two seats in back. Exactly. As soon as the league is setup, I’ll send you an email with all the info and add your league to the join list!

    Yo, brotha. I can keep 2 out of 3 between Mike Evans, David Johnson, Amari. Was offered a trade where I was getting Diggs and Docston for Evans. Which would allow me to keep DJ, Coop, Diggs and Doc. What ya think?

    Not the best place for this question, but here goes anyway – if I’m starting a league with 12 teams, what’s the preferred schedule format? My OCD hates unbalanced schedules.

      @Re-Pete: anywhere is fine Pete. I’d probably do championship in Week 16, and six team playoffs.

      • Re-Pete says:
        (link)

        @Jay: Thanks. For that format, though, how do you set up the weekly matchups? A 13-week regular season is weird for 12 teams.

        • Jay

          Jay says:
          (link)

          @Re-Pete: yeah, good point, I’d have to sit down and figure out the math. I think the RCLs are 12 team, 6 team playoffs and week 17 championship.

        • goodfold2 says:
          (link)

          @Re-Pete: depends on whether you have/want divisions and if so whether you want inside division games to be more than once. if you do it’s easy to make a chart (12 x 12 with all teams on it twice) and then have division matchup weeks or non division matchup weeks.

      @Dom: Team 1, week 1, Team 2 for season.

      • goodfold2 says:
        (link)

        @Jay: i’m missing something as to why week 1 is better on team 1, but team 2’s far superior RB starters probably end up being the value. in this age of rare bell cows who aren’t old mccoy/howard is really really strong. obv it’s WR are worse than team 1. ingram is risky as all shit as a starter for 12 team leagues (i do have this issue myself in a dynasty). with team 2 i would def look to drop one of the D’s for a up and coming WR in short order if possible.

          Jay says:

          @goodfold2: I was being a bit greedy, I love team 2. And Team 1 looks to have a high ceiling low floor thing going on. Honestly, both teams are pretty close.

    I couldn’t find any open IDP comment sections, so I shall ask here…
    Did you hear about Myles Jack being moved out of MIKE to SLB with Poz moving back to MLB? It looks like Jack will still be a 3 down player. My interest lies in Telvin Smith. This has no effect on him right? That’s pretty much their situation from last year if I remember correctly.

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @MrMojoRisin: You can ask any question any where! That’s interesting news, hadn’t seen it. But I think you’re right, little to no change.

      • MrMojoRisin says:

        @Jay: Gruden just stole my scoop! LOL

    • goodfold2 says:
      (link)

      @MrMojoRisin: i’m not sure, can’t remember (nor know even where to look) about whether or not t.smith was or wasn’t MLB last year, he easily could’ve been. it hasn’t affected his FP ranking YET, but that is last couple of days news.

      • goodfold2 says:
        (link)

        @goodfold2: i just emailed ourlads about this though, as it’d be good to know.

        @goodfold2:
        He’s in the same place at the WILL

        • goodfold2 says:

          @MrMojoRisin: what’s the WILL?

          • MrMojoRisin says:
            (link)

            @goodfold2: The Will is the Weakside LB, Just like the Strongside LB is sometimes called the SAM, and the middle is called the Mike

  6. Aubrey Plaza's Pillow says:

    got that trade done, so now it’s (and with rush yards 5 per point and receiving 10 per, with 1 pt PRR)
    QB (1) cousins/goff
    RB (1) blount/kelley/perine/c.thompson/sims
    WR (2) benjamin/pryor/doctson/treadwell/jj nelson/gabriel
    TE (1) v.davis/brate
    util (1)
    IR reed/m.williams
    now trying to trade either 2 WR or 1 WR for RB depth. if i don’t get any better offers would you:
    1. do gabriel for turbin (in case both gore’s out and mack doesn’t steal it)
    2. gabriel for m.jones (just in case of completely locking up the WAS RB scene)

    and i finally remembered why mcnichols doesn’t have interest yet, it’s not ONLY dougie in the way, but jacquizz as well.

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Aubrey Plaza’s Pillow: I’d hold Gabriel for now, I think your RB depth can hold here. Jones is okay, but Gabriel has slightly more upside left… low-chance here, but it’s something.

    Hi Jay ^^

    draft tomorrow: my Keeper Team is
    WR1 ABrown
    RB1 Gurley
    RB2 Ingram
    RB3 Coleman
    QB Pup ! Luck

    8teams, lost in final last season
    so i have pick 7 and 10 , then 23 26 (add +40 for the keepers to get real rank)

    who should i focus on for my 2 picks?
    WR: (NEED) DMThomas – DAHopkins – Jeffery – DVAdams – T Hill – S Watkins – Crabtree – Landry – DSJax – KBenjamin – Diggs
    RB: (i’m full but) Fournette – Crowell – McCaffrey – TyMontgomery – Ware – Mixon – CJ – AP
    QB: Newton – Cousins – Mariota – Prescott – Winston – Taylor (later?)- Ben-Carr – Rivers
    TE: Olsen -JG – Reed – Bennett – Rudolph – Eifert – Ertz or wait for Doyle

    refering to your WR rankings: Adams Thomas Hopkins Jeffery Watkins Crab

    QB : Newton Cousins Mariota Winston Prescott (‘Luck is on bye 11, same as Newton and Winston’) if i can get hilm i’ll go Cousins, else Taylor
    TE: Olsen? better wait pick 4 if i get 2 good WR and a QB –> Rudolph or Eifert if Avb

    Nick

      Jay says:

      @Nick: yeah, I like Adams there, but keep an eye on Hill, loving him a lot lately. And I like your QB thinking.

  8. What's a Drexl? says:
    (link)

    12 team dynasty with 10 rushing yds per pt and 20 receiving yds per point, half PPR. just took this over. have 6 picks to make. the first 2 will nearly certainly be on RB (and i can only fit 2 more RB as is during season, i’ll draft another right now get kicker day of season)
    QB tygod
    RB (start 1) howard/ware
    WR (start 2) ODB/m.thomas/hopkins/jeffery/meredith/thielen (so i’ll be probably benching 3 WR one of which is better than my opp’s 2nd WR unless i can trade out)
    TE
    flex (WR/RB) this pretty much has to be a RB from scoring settings
    flex (WR/TE) this will always be a WR
    K (1)
    D (1)
    good news is i’ve got 2nd pick in every round so assuming i don’t get fournette, does this scoring send mixon over mccaffery (mixon more likely to get rushing yard value, caff receiving yd value). what about cook over caff?

    • What's a Drexl? says:
      (link)

      @What’s a Drexl?: after one of mixon/cook/caff at pick 2.2 i’d likely be getting best out of:
      kamara/perine/hunt (esp as a ware owner)/perkins/west/j.will (GB)/rawls/dixon

      • What's a Drexl? says:
        (link)

        @What’s a Drexl?: woah, crap, i’m shoving out their projected pts this year from rudy’s bot and
        fournette 136.35
        perkins 137.2
        west 162.15
        mixon 102.95
        caff 105.95
        cook 103.85
        hunt 95.05
        perine/kamara just below that
        so here due to me not having short term depth west or perkins is a 1 or a 2. i guess i’d be giving up the upside long term of one of caff/mixon/cook in so doing that. wonder what you think.

        • Jay

          Jay says:
          (link)

          @What’s a Drexl?: Very interesting. I would have thought Mixon would finish slightly ahead. I like what Rudy’s been doing with his tools though, so I’d trust him here.

          And tough to weight, but I’m thinking upside long term is okay here, they could contribute something now at the very least.

      • Jay

        Jay says:
        (link)

        @What’s a Drexl?: Yeah, I like that order, but pay close attention to Hunt. Randy came out with a great post on him today.

      • Let Us Now Praise Famous Death Dwarves says:
        (link)

        @Jay: sorry, which does this last refer to, possibly the “cook over caff”. yeah hunt will be my hope at 2.2 probably for sure, he’s also probably not entirely likely to be there at that pick. but with guys like lynch/m.bryant/decker/z.jones/maclin/the big rookie TE’s around he might be. i’ll be lucky if doyle falls to 3.2

        • Jay

          Jay says:
          (link)

          @Let Us Now Praise Famous Death Dwarves: Oh, maybe I misunderstood, was thinking Mixon, my bad!

          I could see Doyle falling that low here, but you’re right, I wouldn’t bet on it.

          • Let Us Now Praise Famous Death Dwarves says:
            (link)

            @Jay: oh yeah, i was originally by settings thinking if i don’t get fournette then
            mixon over both, then maybe cook over caff. this was till noticing just how much more west and perkins were projected to for this year. but longer term likely thinking the mixon/cook/caff. maybe i just get lucky and fournette is there.

            • Let Us Now Praise Famous Death Dwarves says:
              (link)

              @Let Us Now Praise Famous Death Dwarves: if i even had 2 solid good playing time RB i’d definitely go best long term (so mixon in these settings). but with ware as a 2nd and no 3rd i might very well need more sure performance this year.

              • Let Us Now Praise Famous Death Dwarves says:
                (link)

                @Jay: a guy who’s hoarded 4 QB (this isn’t a 2 QB nor super flex league), has wentz/stafford/dak/a.smith

                doubt i could swing it for ONE WR (which is all i’d do) but any of thielen/meredith/jeffery for wentz (doubt he’d do dak) or is that so remedially better than rodfather as to not do it. my WR depth should be worth something to value me up elsewhere (i’m getting no bites on RB or WR for draft pick (as we only start 1 it makes sense, and their rushing yards worth double receiving yards)).

                • Jay

                  (link)

                  @Let Us Now Praise Famous Death Dwarves: I’d at least test the waters and see what happens. There’s no way he needs that many, even in this format. If I were him, I would look at any of those three as an upgrade. I’d prefer to start with Thielen and then move backwards on that list.

    Hey Jay,

    I’m in a 12 team PPR league where we can keep 2 players from last year and draft them in the spot we drafted them last year as well. This year I have the 8th pick based on finishing in 5th place last year. League start 2 WR’s, 2 RB’s, and 1 Flex. I’m having a tough time deciding on my two keepers out of these four potential options:

    LeSean McCoy – 2nd round
    TY Hilton- 3rd round
    Tevin Coleman – 11th round
    Stefon Diggs – 9th round

    I’m leaning towards McCoy and Coleman because I think I can get TY , Dez, or Evans with my 1st pick based on how I project others to select their keepers. I would then probably target Keenan Allen for my 3rd round.

    Thoughts on my keepers and Keenan Allen’s outlook since he is returning from the injury last year?

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @markowskinator: Yeah, I think those two represent the best bang for your buck. Totally with you there. And Allen should be okay, his injuries have been pretty freakish, not a trend, just bad luck.

    Another IDP note…
    Looks like BJ Goodson is gonna be the MIKE and play all 3 downs for the Giants. He’s looking like my LB3 if anyone else is on Jatavis before me. And I do tend to leave my D players till late in draft!

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      Very interesting, nice tip there, I’ll keep an eye on Goodson, for sure.
