| Fantasy Sports Board|| Shoelace vs a dead rapper and more... - thetempleowl on 11/2/14 at 8:53 am|
The debate about OBD vs OBJ rages on with many people taking sides. I guess since OBD was the father, OBJ would make the most sense here.
However the main discussion here is what can the shoelace do for my team. Yes, I know, its always about my team. But I come on here and try and give my ad...
| Fantasy Sports Board|| The interesting case of the WR/RB - thetempleowl on 10/21/14 at 7:07 pm|
OK. How big of a deal is this? Denard Robinson is listed as both a wr and rb in yahoo leagues. That is very helpful especially in a league with only 2 bench players.
Also adds potential stability to a wr spot.
So, best pick up overall would be tre mason. However, in my particular situation...

So here I sit flexing. I don't know the proper pose, I mean player to maximize my potential.
The hulkster flex always seemed to work, but I do not have that option.
I get to start two of the following three, and I just am not sure which two to pick...
Brandin Cooks, ODB, or Mckinnon.

Yeah, I know its quandary. I took artistic license with the spelling for alliterative purposes. And yes, I know alliteration is technically just similar sounds in the beginning of words so quandary would work just as well, but this is written not spoken...
Anyway, what do people think of Brandi...

| Fantasy Sports Board|| Rashad Jennings rest of season... - thetempleowl on 10/8/14 at 6:50 pm|
So, the injury is not a huge deal. However, williams getting his foot in the door might be.
When Jennings comes back does he take back over the role or will we see more of a committee type of approach.
Jennings has been a solid fantasy back but hasn't been a great runner for the giants. If w...
| Fantasy Sports Board|| Carolos Hyde - thetempleowl on 10/3/14 at 5:18 pm|
What is the low down on him?
I just had to cut him because we only have two bench spots in this league.
With byes coming up and injuries it is difficult. I figured I would pick up Ryan Mathews who was cut after his injury because the guy had bye week issues and has been sitting on waivers. I...
| Fantasy Sports Board|| Saints people, when is Ingram coming back? - thetempleowl on 9/28/14 at 3:20 pm|
Does anyone know when Ingram is coming back? And if so, what will his role be when he returns?
Is Ingram better to have than Ryan Mathews when he returns?...
| Fantasy Sports Board|| Toby vs Bishop, this week forward? - thetempleowl on 9/27/14 at 8:46 am|
Who would you rather have going forward?
Some feel that Toby is going to finally mean something that blake bortles is qb in jacksonville.
Now regardless of who the qb is, they are still jacksonville. But he doesn't need to do much to be fantasy relevant. Just 50 yards and a td a week would...
| Fantasy Sports Board|| Outlook on rookie running backs. - thetempleowl on 9/24/14 at 4:29 pm|
What is everyones thoughts on the rookie running back class including Hyde, Hill, Sankey, West, Crowell, Freemen, Mckinnon, and whoever else I may be forgetting?
Hyde seems to be the beast of the bunch and I suppose has a decent chance of becoming the lead back by the end of the year. Do people ...
| Fantasy Sports Board|| Lets talk about two young receivers, Hunter and Matthews - thetempleowl on 9/22/14 at 6:30 pm|
Well, my fantasy league only allows 2 bench spots. It does not really allow you to stash players.
And this is a deep 14 team league. So in my flex I have played justin hunter so far. He is a young guy for the titans who many thought was just going to break out this year and have a monster ye...
| Fantasy Sports Board|| Browns running back going forward... - thetempleowl on 9/19/14 at 9:49 am|
So, tate will likely be back after the bye for them.
Someone already has tate, and I currently hold West. He did well for me last week. However, moving forward, is any back worth holding onto?
When tate comes back, is he going to be the man?
I have heard some say that Crowell seems to b...

So, lets discuss the positives and negatives of both Asiata and Mckinnnon.
Lets first discuss what we know about Peterson. He is out for now, with the vikings saying they can bring him back.
For what? First, his hearing is set for October 8. I happen to think that Peterson and lawyers will ...
| Fantasy Sports Board|| Asiata and Mckinnon, discussion on worth - thetempleowl on 9/13/14 at 9:23 am|
First of all, I guess we have to figure out how long Peterson is going to be out. It is a complex issue and difficult to figure out because the NFL is so freaking psycho when it comes to stuff like this.
Regarding the ray rice thing, he originally got a two game suspension and then, after the vi...

sixteen team league.
So we are starting some not very good running backs. I do however have a couple of nice picks in Carlos Hyde and Jeremy Hill.
Does Jackson still have it? He got a decent number of carries, but they starting passing way too much.
He ended up with 52 yards. I still...
| Fantasy Sports Board|| best young players going forward this year... - thetempleowl on 9/5/14 at 11:35 am|
Jeremy Hill, Carlos Hyde, Justin Hunter, or Jordan Mathews. I can hold onto three.
Right now my team in a 14 team (qb,rb,rb,wr,wr,flex,te,kicker and defense) is
Jeremy Hill flex
