In the deal, SYNM shareholders will receive approximately .40 shares of REGI per share of SYNM owned. SYNM closed the day @ $3.34 (up 35% on the day), while REGI cl...
| Fantasy Sports Board|| Pitta or Tony G? PPR - TigeRoots on 12/15/13 at 8:34 am|
Semifinal matchup, already behind the 8 ball with Peyton, DT88 & Woodhead getting less than I expected from them.
Tony G vs Wash or Pitta @ Det.?
Which one has the higher ceiling? I like the fact that Pitta had 11 targets last week, but Tony has been my guy all year. ...
| Fantasy Sports Board|| Woodhead or Andre Brown? PPR - TigeRoots on 12/11/13 at 2:57 pm|
I'm torn on Woodhead tomorrow night @ Denver or Andre B at home vs. Seattle.
Woodhead should catch a few passes and maybe a TD, but obviously Andre B will get more touches and Seattle's run defense has not been that good and can be had. Seattle's rush D giving up around 110 YPG.

| Fantasy Sports Board|| Gore this week? - TigeRoots on 11/26/13 at 6:21 pm|
I didn't like what I saw last night from Gore. He looked hobbled and frankly looked like shite. I understand he only had 13 carries, so he didn't exactly have a ton of opps. That's concerning also. On the flip side, he did dominate the STL defense earlier in the year, but their D is playing alot bett...
| Fantasy Sports Board|| Jennings, DMC or Chris J - TigeRoots on 11/26/13 at 7:58 am|
Got a playoff implicating decision this week at flex:
DMC @ Dallas
Rashad J @ Dallas
Chris Johnson @ Indy
I'd prefer to avoid the Oakland situation if both backs are playing, but CJ can't be trusted and Dallas' run D can certainly be had by Oakland. Thoughts?...
| Fantasy Sports Board|| Roddy on Thursday night? - TigeRoots on 11/19/13 at 7:33 am|
Thinking I may roll Roddy out this Thursday night vs N.O. for the first time all year. Other option would be a hobbled Keenan Allen @ KC.
Anyone else rolling the dice on Roddy this week?...
| Fantasy Sports Board|| Vereen or Rashad Jennings this week? PPR - TigeRoots on 11/15/13 at 1:37 pm|
I have Rashad locked in as of now, but it looks like Matt McGloin will be under center for Oak. Now I am contemplating throwing Vereen in there, but I think his touches will be limited.
Rashad J @ Hou
Vereen @ Carolina on MNF...
| Fantasy Sports Board|| Chris Johnson PAIN TRAIN! - TigeRoots on 11/14/13 at 7:32 pm|
Begins here. I got TY riding shotgun too....
| Fantasy Sports Board|| Pick 2 of these 3 this weekend - Ellington, James, TY - TigeRoots on 11/8/13 at 4:47 pm|
PPR league. Can start 2 of these 3:
Ellington vs Hou
Mike James vs Mia (MNF)
TY vs STL
All are playing at home, with Mike James playing Primetime Monday Night.
I'm leaning James/TY now, but supposedly Ellington will get 20 touches this week, so now I'm second guessing......
| Fantasy Sports Board|| Is Riley Cooper worth a # 1 waiver claim? - TigeRoots on 11/5/13 at 6:13 am|
Normally I'd say hell no, but here's my situation: PPR, start 3 WRs.
Keenan Allen - stud
Roddy - who knows if he will play
Colston - see Roddy
Josh Gordon - bye
Drew Davis - garbage
So I only have 1 WR that will definitely suit up this weekend and be serviceable. 3 of Riley's last ...
| Fantasy Sports Board|| Did you draft a worse group of WRs than this? - TigeRoots on 11/2/13 at 9:56 am|
PPR, start 3 WR and a WR/RB flex.
Edit: Tavon. Forgot I drafted him in this league too (it's pts per return yards to, so I thought I had a steal). He's rotting on the wire now, of course.
Gordon is the only one I am currently starting. Luckily I snagge...

| Fantasy Sports Board|| Tony Gonzalez potential trade (real life) - TigeRoots on 10/29/13 at 9:23 am|
I know this is very far fetched, but as a Tony G owner, I'd love to see him head up to Foxboro, GB or even KC. Without Julio or Roddy in ATL, he has been getting all of the attention and he's been sucking.
"Speaking late Monday night, Tony Gonzalez said he's open to a trade out of Atlanta.

Having lost Martin out of an already under par RB stable, I am having to hit the wire and hope for the best. How do you rank these 3 going forward? I've got them like this, but I am flip flopping by the minute:
[b]James[/b] - Should be the clear cut RB1, although on a shitty team. Hoping he catch...
| Fantasy Sports Board|| Need a flex play - TigeRoots on 10/11/13 at 1:00 pm|
Boldin vs. Zona
DMC @ KC
DLo @ Minny
I have Anquan in there now, but debating throwing DLo in his place, with an outside shot of playing DMC. Anquan will be up against PP7 and Minnesota's run defense can be had by DLo. Not sold on DMC's health (of course) and KC's D is stout.
| Fantasy Sports Board|| Starting Ray Rice this week? - TigeRoots on 9/25/13 at 1:13 pm|
The newest news is that Ray Rice expects to play against Buffalo this weekend. Are any owners starting him? What are your other options? I picked up Snelling off of the waiver wire in a PPR league to start over Rice (assuming he'd be out), but this Buffalo match up is tasty....
| Fantasy Sports Board|| Trade opinions? BMarsh for Sproles/Wallace... - TigeRoots on 9/17/13 at 12:58 pm|
My Brandon Marshall for his Daren Sproles/Mike Wallace. PPR. We start 2 WR, 2 RB, 1 RB/WR
I now have Mathews as my RB2, which I am trying to shore up. My WR's are fairly deep.
My lineup now:
QB: P. Manning, Wilson
RB: Martin, Mathews, Ivory, Ingram
WR: BMarsh, Demaryius, TY, Josh Gordon...

Doesn't some guy named Mikel post here often? Just wondering if this is the same guy. I haven't seen "Mikel" spelled like that too often.

Looking rather dilapidated and unkempt. It's a damn shame that a historic site like this isn't getting the attention it deserves. Are the fencing issues due to Isaac or the Pastor and his cronies? Perhaps "W" can stop by and fill us in.

Always a blast catching fish on top water baits. Fish turned off completely around 11:00am. I would be back ou...
