It seems like an interesting take on diversity when diversity does not mean race or gender but seemingly rather intelligence.
Diversity they want in addition to race and gender is also intelligent. They should let stupid people into harvard and then handicap their grades like golf so stupid peop...

| Fantasy Sports Board|| re: Opinions on Tate and West - thetempleowl on 9/20/14 at 3:00 pm|
If Tate can stay healthy and demonstrate he is the man, he has a large upside. I think the browns, though lacking a qb, have a good running game. And honestly, Hoyer isn't all that bad.
The browns could surprise some people. And their players have value. If tate can avoid the rbbc, then yes...

| Fantasy Sports Board|| re: Maclin or Patterson? - thetempleowl on 9/20/14 at 8:52 am|
One of my shortcomings is that I usually choose offensive players on better offenses. I tend to go with the receiver with the better qb.
I would go with Maclin in this case. While straight up Patterson is the more talented guy, Maclin is in an offense that is just about to start firing on all c...

I understand the trust issue with the coaches, but the simple fact is players are getting thrown into games earlier and earlier.
Five years ago receivers often took a year to learn a system. QBs could sit on the bench for a year or two before taking over.
Now how many first round receivers ar...
| 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...

| Fantasy Sports Board|| re: Sammy Watkins or Brandin Cooks? - thetempleowl on 9/17/14 at 6:29 pm|
Watkins has a lower floor. He could get zero.
Cooks can go deep, but they like to use him many different ways. He is the saints version of the vikings patterson. They run him sometimes. They do short passes to him.
I waffle on these types of plays. If EJ is getting it, then Watkins can ...

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|| re: Running Back help - thetempleowl on 9/15/14 at 4:08 pm|
I like Hill. I drafted Hill. However, this season, people need to calm down. Gio got the lions share of the carries.
If the Bengals don't run the ball 43 times (I think that is how often they ran it) Hill doesn't get as many carries.
If the game is close and not running the ball successful...
| Fantasy Sports Board|| re: Ingram, FJax or Reggie Wayne at Flex? - thetempleowl on 9/14/14 at 9:57 am|
Wayne is the solid play. Wayne is likely to get you around 10 points and very easily could go off for more. The colts eagles game could be high scoring.
FJax, not even in the discussion.
Ingram, sorry, he got a couple of tds last week, but I think he will require that to be good. I like I...

[quote]the thing is with leagues like that, you can take a gamble on a guy like McKinnon. And if you need someone immediately, you can drop him and just add someone because the free agents are much better. 2 bench spots is lame though. Takes a lot of the fun out of it. [/quote]
I agree with you. ...

prob not. Not to mention, Tate is only out 2-4 then Crowell is looming as well. And he plays in a shitty offense.
I think his value is being exaggerated. [/quote]
