    Speaking of AP......

    I have a bet with a buddy of mine that he will rush for a 1000 yds this year in New Orleans. I am on the side that he will get it done. Good bet or not??????

    That's a good question. My gut tells me he will not, because of his injuries/age. Plus The Saints have a wild pass game, and he may not be the load carrier. How about a nice 650-750 rushing season, to complement the stable in NO, plus some bonus passing yards. Heck. if he can do that, score a few TDs and add some motivation to an already high powered O, he will have been worth the money.

    If he breaks 1,000....look out Saints (assuming they have a little more D....finally!)

    What's the thinking on Elliott being suspended? Are we talking a game, or multiple?

    I think they'll slap a 4 game and the appeal will reduce it to 2, that's my guess

    Makes sense to me. I was thinking 1 or 2 games unless they found more evidence in the bar fight.

    This guy is going to be one to watch when it comes to his antics. The Cowboys sure seem to "embrace" those types.

    Fantasy question......do you ever practice via mock drafts and kick yourself because you just put together a dream team....and knowing it was only practice??!! (Same goes in reverse....walk away saying, "lucky I don't have to play with that bunch!!")

    Lol, all the time. I draft perfect teams every time, mostly because everybody leaves and all I have to compete with is the computer. My strategy is take RB with my 1st 3 picks regardless of pick number because I always end up with WR's like martavis Bryant and Emanuel Sanders, draft a QB like Carr or big Ben and I feel like I just won the lottery

    RB's in FF this season don't seem to be very deep. There are a lot of RBs that might be decent but it is hard to say. A lot of RBBC teams compared to seasons before. Or maybe that's just my take and I have been wrong before ... I think. There might be ~20 RBs that can be relied on this season, IMO.

    Maybe I'm missing something in regards to Elliott? because I don't think he will get any suspension. What exactly has he done?

    I do some mocks - so far 2 this season - but until you get at least 2 games into the preseason they will be misleading ... in my experience.

    Domestic violence and a bar fight, in which he may have punched a guy in the face. Maybe neither is as bad as some say, but the odds are he'll get at least a game.

    OK, I still draft him in the 1st if I have the opportunity. I read up on the issues now ... hard to say what the NFL will do. I'm not sure it is fair but that's the job.
    Dallas seems to have many "issues" with players behavior.

    My gut tells me he is going to get off easier than he should, but I can hardly be a judge in any of this. I don't know enough. But my instincts tell me that he is going to be a handful for a few years. Lets put it this way, he is not new to off the field issues.

    But based on what we know, he will be a high 1st rounder.

    Another question for the gang....

    When drafting, how much do you put into the "bye" impact? For example, will you take 2 RBs or 2 WRs, or some combination of say 3 or more players with the same bye week, not worrying about the consequences?

    My personal thoughts are....I try not to overlap bye weeks for any position, but if I have 5 RBs (as an example), it is not as big a deal if I have an overlap with 2 of them. I do not like to draft my first 2 RBs or 2 WRs with the same bye, given the loss of talent in that week. And I prefer to not draft my top positional players (QB,RB,WR) with the same bye.....given that will be a very tough week to do well. Then again, if great players land in your lap (making it hard to not draft them, regardless of the bye), and you only have one "questionable" bye week, maybe your other players can pull it out for you.....and then you might kill it for most of the season.

    Thoughts?

    When possible I will draft my top guys with the same bye week. When I say my top guys I mean my 3 to 4 start every week guys.....

    It certainly makes for a rough week, but also allows for much needed recovery for some players especially rbs.

    In our league we also play/pay for the weekly high- so to me, I feel my chances improve with a better weekly staple. I have my "stud lineup" for 12/13 weeks. Of course an injury to one of those top guys throws the whole theory out the window.

    I don't pay attention to the bye weeks for RB, WR but I do IF I want a good backup QB or TE. I will almost always have enough RBs and WRs that I can "absorb" the byes for them and/or as the season goes on there will always be players that didn't get drafted that end up being good/great FF players and can be picked up on the waivers ... if you time it right.
