Default Re: 3rd Annual ISH Money League

I actually think, if you limit it to just 2-3 leagues, it can actually help in certain instances. Sure, there is more work on a weekly basis, but you are also getting to see what other skilled owners do with their teams. For instance, I'm always much better at drafting by the 2nd and/or 3rd FF draft than I am in the 1st, because I can combine my own knowledge with ideas from some others which I liked.

Same with things like the waiver wire during the season. Maybe you don't get that great sleeper off the waiver in one league, but -- with multiple leagues -- you have more opportunities... Depending upon how clued in those other leagues are.

All of that obviously goes out the window when you overdo it... Like last year... I was in something like six leagues. It just got to be way too much. Now, I limit it to a maximum of three and prefer two.

Fred Jackson got injured (again) so Spiller was a legit RB1

Funny... In the league I made it into the championship game, I also had Spiller. And, yes, FJax going down for the season happened just at the right time. That was a major reason why I am now $800 richer.

Brees is always good for like 30 points lol

and then I had Dez who I think has been the highest scorer in fantasy PERIOD the last 6 weeks...even more than will be really interesting to see where Dez gets drafted next year, probably high 2nd round.

You had a nasty team, no doubt. It was consistently good all season long. I actually do think the four best teams ended up finishing in the 1-4 spots this season in this league, which is sort of rare.

As for Dez, he is obviously a physical specimen. I still probably wouldn't draft him that high simply because I'm not ready to trust him to carry my receivers for an entire season... Not because he doesn't have the tools to do so, but just because he has been inconsistent in the past and there is always the risk he will do something stupid and get in the doghouse or suspended.

Plus, there are so many ridiculous receivers in the NFL right now. Andre Johnson, Calvin Johnson, Brandon Marshall, AJ Green, Demaryius Thomas, VJax... Even guys like Roddy White and Reggie Wayne who were perceived as slipping had huge years. And then you have the young up-and-comers like my man Josh Gordon, who will be HUGE next year (mark my words).

Not to say Dez won't be a high pick... I'd guess more like mid-third, though. He'll go somewhere between Demaryius Thomas and Reggie Wayne, I think.

should be noted that the 3 players that took a QB in the first round in this league all made the playoffs

I've argued the "wait on QB" line of thinking being bad for at leat 3 years now in here and I am still a firm believer it is a bad's a passing league and an elite QB is just too important these days

CJ won't slip to the 4th round next year, only because the RB position is so thin. He really wasn't all that inconsistent in the second half of the season. It just took him too long to get going, which killed a lot of his owners (myself included).

I'd guess between the 2nd and 3rd rounds next year. Probably late-2nd. I'm going to speculate that I probably won't be the one to pull the trigger, though.

As the great George W. Bush once said, "fool me once, shame on... you... Fool me... You can't get fooled again."
