  1. NJDevs '17-18 Fantasy Hockey

    I wound up getting Darling after he was dropped. I need to manage them better, but I’m happy with my goaltending I’m not very happy with my defense, but I’ll be patient. Klefbom is struggling but seems to be finding himself. I’m happy I drafted Namestnikov over Gudas on accident, in a way. I wanted Namestnikov the next round hence why I was adding him to my queue when it switched to “draft”... but I think he might have made it back to me while I’d have a better defensemen. Giradi and DeAngelo are long off my team. I’m happy with McDavid; he will post stronger numbers; but he isn’t doing horrible now either. Im very happy with selecting Gaudreau (7g, 17a, 24p, +4) over Forsberg (9g, 8a, 17p, -1); even though I took some sh!t in chat at the time. Huberdeau I’m also very happy with; Horvat I’m still hoping for more. Shipachyov got shafted and in turn shafted me, but that’s the gamble on Russian hockey players. And Keller is looking like a terrific keeper candidate. Kane (6g, 11a, 17p, -3), Anderson (10 wins, 3.25gaa, .901sv%, 1sho), Niderrreiter (3g, 3a, 6p, +3), Green (1g, 13a, 14p, +4) McDavid (9g, 13a, 22p, +6), Radulov (6g, 11a, 17p, -3), Horvat (7g, 7a, 14p, +4), Namestinkov (9g, 10a, 19p, +8) So I won McDavid>Kane... which was the expected result. Anderson isn’t spectacular but posting wins... Radulov is decent here, but I’ll give a push here. Horvat is clearly outperforming Nino. and Green is a better value than Namestinkov - but both of us are happy with the value pulled there. Ultimately, as of now, I think I’m ahead in the trade. And again, not trede related... but I had the advantage with Gaudreau over Forsberg. I’m not sure if Njd4978 would have drafted someone else in the second if so traded that pick as originally it was slated. Still plenty of season to go though!

    It’s worthwhile to examine rosters and make adjustments as we near the quarter poll; but still plenty of time for slumps to break, hot steaks to fizzle, and for free agents to emerge (although in this league it’s harder to find them given how deep we are) I’m enjoying the basement for now; I’m optimistic still though

    Week 9... when the Saints win, we win. Big Blue, Picking from a Hat and Value Picks went with the Saints over the Bucs, who won 30-10. So all three move on. Easy peasey. On to week 10.
  4. Sadly... I’m happy with Eli Manning this week... so sad.
  5. I don't believe we allow season-ending IRs to be picked up for keeping purposes? The issue I had with Manning was he wasn't IR'd; but clearly not returning. Colts seem to love doing that. Crasher is the commish though so he can weigh-in on that.

    Week 8... much like week 7. Big Blue went with the Vikings, who beat the Browns 33-16 Picking from a Hat went with the Eagles, who defeated the 49ers 33-10 And this time it was VALUE Picks who barely survived as the Bengals scraped by the Colts 24-23 On to week 9

    Week 7... after a few weeks of excitement, we settle down a bit while adding variety. Big Blue went with Cowboys, as Zeke went off and defeated the 49ers, 40-10. VALUE Picks went with the Vikings, who beat the Ravens 24-16. Picking from a Hat went with the Titans and barely survived as they needed OT to defeat the Browns, 12-9 On to week 8; 2 picks are already in; VALUE still needs to get a pick in.
  8. Lol... thankfully RBs save my week.
  9. I have wasted so much on QBs to get so little

    It’s really a sheep in wolf’s clothing title. I like it.

    I always liked Milan Hejduk; as like a lesser Elias in my head... and while we were playing the Avs I used to try to jinx him by saying Hejjjjjjjjjduk when he had the puck... it had mixed results because jinxes aren’t real.
  12. Yep... Zeke is going to remain a headache. The draft review didn’t like the Gurley/Zeke combo nor did it like me picking Keenan Allen. The adp graphs said I reached early and picked up value players in the back end of the draft... while at the same time saying I had one of the strongest top end drafts and weakest back end... it just seemed very confused and contrarian to itself. Like I said earlier, this was the best I felt after a draft in a long time, and I received a D+. I tried drafting a kicker asking if I could just release Meredith and just use my 15th but that was rejected... I didn’t care at all since I was just going to pick up a kicker and had no master plan to target a specific one.
  13. It’s the A draft vs the D+; bring it on preppy.

    And just because I was browsing Roy fails on YouTube... I do miss hearing John Davidson in broadcasts
