    Appreciate it. He really wants Jacobs. But oddly, I think I would rather have Jacobs than Chubb ROS. Chubb is on a 2-6 team with a bad OL and he's basically losing passing down work to Hilliard and now with Hunt coming back, I worry about his upside. On the other hand, Jacobs is a workhorse, and is on a team that should be competiive.

    In a half PPR would you guys trade Nick Chubb, JuJu Smith-Schuster and Royce Freeman for Michael Thomas, David Johnson and Joe Mixon? I'm desperate. 3-6. Gotta win. JuJu as my WR2 is killing me (and because Adams is my WR1). I have Cook, Jacobs, Ronald Jones, Guice and Drake.

    Any long-time holder of Green? I drafted him for $8 in an auction, which at the time seemed like a bargain. Seems like he'll be back Week 10 whether with the Bengals or a team like the Packers or 49ers. I am about to trade Murray and AJ Green to the Kamara owner in my league for Josh Jacobs. Would give me Cook, Chubb and Jacobs at RB, RB, FLex. Think I made out okay on that one, frankly because I'm sick of waiting on AJ Green and Murray is a guy I just added before this week and got 29 points from off the WW.

    There's one guy in my league that is almost as addicted to trading as I am. And he's a bit of a Taco, despite having one of the best seasons on record in our league (way back in 2011). I have made 3 trades with him this year ... and I just went back and reviewed them. Absolutely hilarious what we've done. Trade 1 (prior to Week 2): I sent him DK Metcalf and Mike Williams for JuJu Smith Schuster and Geronimo Allison Trade 2 (prior to Week 4): I sent him Marquise Brown and Tyler Eifert for Darren Waller and DK Metcalf (back to me) Trade 3 (prior to Week 7): I sent him Duke Johnson and DK Metcalf (back to him) for Mike Williams Net after WW drops: I sent: Marquise Brown, DK Melcalf I received: JuJu Smith-Schuster, Darren Waller

    Oof. Yeah that stinks re: Edmonds. It was a very strange week. In my main league ... our average score per week tends to hover between 122 and 135. There's always fluctuation and there tend to be some huge weeks and some big downer weeks. Two weeks ago the average score across the 10 teams was 144.5 ... which is insane. This week the average score is going to be 104.5. Week 5: 161, 159, 175, 132, 166, 161, 125, 126, 131, 110 (144.5) Week 7: 120, 69, 125, 136, 95, 80, 164, 79, 107, 71 (104.5) The top team in our league historically averages between 140 and 145 PPG every year. Our current average across 7 weeks is 127. I am factoring in projections for the remaining players to go tonight in the final totals for Week 7. Our top scoring team going into Week 7 was averaging 144 PPG ... he dropped the 4th lowest score in our league's 8 year history at 69 points this week. He gets a pass though. He was down CMC, Evans, DJ Moore and Odell Beckham.

    2020 Comprehensive Draft Thread

    It is so sad that I'm thinking so much about the draft in 6 months ... when we are entering Week 5. But I can't get excited about much else and all I can think about is what happens if we get pick #1 in a loaded QB class. So bear with me, but hopefully this excites you as much as me. Pie-in-the-sky results from 2019 season and 2020 draft: - Trade Trent to NE for Patriots 2nd and 3rd after we start 0-5 - Finish the season 2-14 and end up with the #1 pick just ahead of Miami (2-14), CIncinnati (3-13) and Denver (4-12) - Draft unfolds as follows, assuming rough draft-order given current standings and moving Skins from current #3 pick to #1 for sake of this exercise Draft: - Trade #1 pick to Miami for #2 and #7 (from Pittsburgh), 3rd - Trade #2 pick to Oakland for #13, #24 (Chicago), 2nd and 2020 1st Draft starts: 1. Miami - Tua 2. Las Vegas - Herbert 3. Cincy - Fromm 4. Broncos - Jeudy 5. Jets - Young 6. Arizona - Thomas #7: Tristan Wirfs, LT Iowa #13: A.J. Epenesa, EDGE Iowa #24: Henry Ruggs, WR Alabama 2nd (OAK): Jared Pinkney, TE Vanderbilt 2nd (NE): Top CB Available 3rd: Top G/C 3rd (MIA): Top RT 3rd (NE): Top CB Available This would essentially allow for a full re-set in one off-season and build talent at key positions for the long-term. Plus go into 2020 with 2 1sts Wirfs = Trent replacement Epenesa - Kerrigan replacement Ruggs + McLaurin get a RT to replace Moses long-term Get a C to compete with Roullier/Piershbacher Get 2 young CBs to compete with Moreau, Dunbar, Moreland to remake the CB

    Pipe Dream Way Too Early hope: Go 2-14 ... everyone gets canned. Make Smith the GM (Or Riddick) and get an offensive guru to build an offense that will fit Haskins well. Miami beats us in Week 6 and stumbles into another W along the way to finish with the #2. Pittsburgh gets to 5-6 wins and the #12 pick. Trade Trent for a 2+3 from someone like NE (later round picks obv.) ASAP Get #1 pick. Trade to Miami for #2 and #12 so they can draft Tua. Trade #2 to Cincy for #6, their 2nd, 3rd and a 2020 1st so they can draft Herbert or Fromm. You have two early 1st round picks to spend on elite WR and LT. You go from 0 to two 2nd round picks and add two 3rds to finish with 2, 2, 3, 3, 3 on Day 2 and use those picks to address a plethora of needs at IOL, TE, CB, Edge, ILB ... use rest of draft to fill out other needs or trade for some 2020 picks. Go into 2020 with a young, retooled offense to build around Haskins and two 1st rounders in 2020 to add talent at TBD positions. Because i have zero faith in the ownership and management, I fully expect this to not come remotely close to happening. But as I said, Pipe Dream. It's all I have to look forward to now.

    Firing Bruce and Co. may get Trent to come back, but tbh this is the time to deal him. At 0-4 he brings virtually no value to this season, and if we can get any value for him we certainly should. The Patriots should be ringing our phone off the hook offering us a pair of 2nds or their 1st. That would IMO make LT the absolutely biggest need this off-season. We could also use an upgrade at OC, but those can come fairly cheap in the draft (unless you want elite, you can get long-term starters in the 3rd-5th range). And we still have a couple TBD guys with Martin and Pierschbacher who need a year or two to develop. WR is a need obviously. But I do think Scary Terry's emergence has maybe masked how big of a need. But certainly, a Jerry Jeudy in the Top 5 would be very tempting ... though we would need to have another 1st rounder (via trade down) to get another LT, or have Trent back on an extension (buying a bit more time for his replacement). Moses has looked like poo at RT. He's been decent in the past, but you could certainly upgrade him and move on from his big money via FA or the draft (maybe Christian slides to RT). WR, LT, CB, Edge, TE --- that would be my priority. I still think ILB is solid going forward with Foster coming back and SDH progressing. I'm crossing my fingers we found a diamond in the rough in Noah Spence. I loved him coming out of WKU and clearly he didn't deliver in TB, but he's looked good for us. That would be a bonus find long-term, but you can never have too many Edge rushers, so I woulnd't be opposed to adding another.

    Just for fun, I predicted each game for the ROS across the NFL. Obv. a total crapshoot, but here's what I got ... Draft Order: 1. Miami (1-15) 2. Washington (1-15) 3. Denver (1-15) 4. Miami (from Pit. 3-13) 5. Cincinnati (3-13) 6. Jacksonville (4-12) 7. NY Jets (4-12) 8. Arizona (3-12-1) 9. Oakland (5-11) 10. Atlanta (6-10) 11. NY Giants (6-10) 12. Minnesota (7-9) 13. Carolina (8-8) 14. Indianapolis (9-7) 15. Miami (from Ind. 9-7) 16. Buffalo (9-7) 17. LA Charger (9-7) 18. Tampa Bay (9-7) 19. Seattle (9-7) 20. Tennessee (10-6) 21. Chicago (10-6) 22. New Orleans (10-6) 23. San Francisco (10-6) 24. Baltimore (11-5) 25. Cleveland (11-5) 26. Green Bay (11-5) 27. Philadelphia (11-5) 28. Dallas (11-5) 29. Detroit (11-4-1) 20. LA Rams (12-4) 31. Kansas City (15-1) 32. New England (16-0) With parody, this is pretty hard to see playing out. I don't think Denver goes 1-15 ... and there's a lot of jumble between 8-8 and 10-6 ... but this gives some sense in where things could play out. I'd trade #2 to Cincy for #5, their 2nd and a 2020 1st for sure.

    0-4 is certainly a good start. But I do fear that with our weaker back-half of the season schedule, that we could stumble our way into a 5-11 finish, esp. if Gruden is canned and someone like O'Connell and Ray Horton take over play-calling duties and turn things around a bit and light a fire. There's a lot of talent on this team, and it's clearly being undercoached and underperforming. The OL presumably will improve as the season goes on. Terry and the young WRs will progress. The defense absolutely HAS to improve. Bruce Allen getting canned could lead to Trent coming back ... if we even want him. And Guice returning at some point could provide a spark in the run-game. Personally I see 4-12. And that could get us #2 ... or it could get us #6. Either way, you get some serious talent at #6. But I think this team needs an overhaul of top-tier talent and holding a lottery ticket in a premier QB draft would really pay dividends. Sometimes being bad at the right time could be the spark to turning things around. And I actually applaud what Miami is doing. They see a chance to suck for 1-2 years and really reload talent to make a run when Tom retires and the AFC East opens up a bit more. I do like the last couple drafts that we've had and think there are some good talent evaluators in the front office, and think we have a lot of talent on defense ... so it's a bit of a pipe-dream to think we could get #1. But losing to NE and Miami would go a long-way to getting there I guess.

    Popping in here for the first time since the draft. I may have missed this in past pages ... but now that it is becoming increasingly likely that we have a high pick ... has there been any discussion of what the potential value of #1 to #3 pick is in this draft? As tempting as it might be, I don't see the Redskins going the route of the Cardinals. And I pray, pray, pray that there is a new Front Office (or at least FO Leader) in place by the time big decisions have to be made at this level. With Tua, Fromm and Herbert in this draft, I think the value of picks 1-3 is pretty high, with the #1 pick obviuosly holding the most value. If the Skins had #1, what would the expected 'haul' be ... If we held #2? If we held #3? The best option would clearly be to end up with #1 (hopefully by going 1-15 or 2-14 and not 0-16) ... trade that pick to Miami (for, presumably, #2 or #3 ... and also get the Steelers 1st which could be Top 12 and maybe a 2nd. Then you could get either the top OT or Jeudy at #2/3 and use the other 1st on a WR/OT and ... big IF ... If you get get a 2nd out of it and also get a 2nd by trading Trent sometime in the next few weeks (WTF Bruce) ... you would have the picks to also address defense and TE with fairly impactful picks. Personally I think we end up going 3-13 and end up with the #2 to #4 pick. A travesty would be to get pick #4 and have the Dolphins, Bengals and Broncos get picks 1-3 (would assume Denver would go QB even though they spent a 2 on Lock). While this would allow the Skins to draft the #1 OT or #1 WR ... it would take away the value of trading the pick. While I always tend to lean toward trading back to accumulate picks, it would be sad if we, in our bottoming-out year, just missed the value of one of the Top 3 picks and the opportunity to rob another team of draft assets while we build around Haskins. Could you imagine if we went 1-15 and had the #1 pick? Trade it to the Dolphins for #2, #12 (Steelers) and a 2nd? Man.

    Traded Mike Williams and DJ Metcalf for JuJu In my main league. Ditched 2 bench players for a WR upgrade. Now have Adams, JuJu, Cooks, Marquise Brown, John Ross and AJ Green (IR) Feeling really good about the trade even tho JuJu has some risk now. I bought low tho. And rolling out Chubb and Dalvin as my RBs and starting 4 WRs I feel like I can overcome my 0-2 start I feel like I could upgrade Brandin Cooks as my WR3 by packaging with Green when he comes back for another WR1. But right now I can’t get anyone to even sniff an interest in Green. Im all in on Marquise tho.

    @ShredSkins if I were in your league I would be hitting you up for your QBs right now haha. So I do have a standing offer of James White for Matt Ryan and a couple people on Reddit have told me they think Ryan will have a better year than Rodgers and would rather do White for Ryan than White for Rivers. Is that legit? I do like Ryan, I know he's been the #1 QB over the last 3 years combined. But with Adams as my WR1, I do like the idea of that combo more than just Ryan.

    Cook > Conner IMO. I think any questions re: Cook were dispelled last week. The Vikings are going to be a run-heavy team and Cook is versatile in the passing game as well. Cook has #1 RB upside this year. Conner does not. Whether this was a smart rejection or not, it would help to see who your other WRs are.
