It’s almost like the blaring sirens and giant waving red flags surrounding his exit from Pittsburgh were warnings of some sort. Weird.

Good thing they are playing in Vegas so away fans can keep the building sold out. Ugly times ahead with Gruden unfireable for at least 5 more seasons.

So just to update on this, I'm watching PL soccer today. Picture is great on both PC and PS4. I'm not really sure if the surround sound is working but I think it is. I have a soundbar that's a 7.1 setup but I think I'm only getting 5.1 sound, which is pretty standard for sports.

One thing to remember is if you're using a browser, the only browser that consistently supports HTML5 is Microsoft Edge. I'm normally a Chrome user but I've found that DAZN seems to perform better on Edge for whatever reason. Picture is on par or better than PS4, whereas Chrome seems to have a worse picture than both and has more connection/buffering issues.

you know the NFL is out of control when a QB who isnt even a top 10 QB declines an average of 30 M a year, but apparently that is what Dak Prescott did. even though he comes across as a fool, EE is easily the MVP of the team. Without a great running game, Prescott is average. Jerry has some big issues going forward.

I think Dak is banking on having a massive year this year. And I feel like he is going to. Teams will underestimate him and sell out on EE and with an offseason with Cooper and adding Cobb they could do some damage. Still seems weird to turn that down though.

Without the running game, he has shown to be a game manager at best. he should crawl across broken glass to sign that deal, although it didn't say how much was guaranteed, but still

Prescott is Alex Smith. Surrounded by a solid supporting cast he’s a solid game manager. He’s good at play action and accurate on the short/intermediate throws but has been amongst the lowest ranked QB’s over his career when it comes to pushing the ball downfield. This article goes over his issues well. He’s still going to get paid because once Garoppolo got close to $30 million for a cup of coffee as a starter the QB salary scale was destroyed for good.

This really. I think the Cowboys have a chance to make some noise this year assuming the EE situation gets figures out.

So what kind of sources does everyone use for Fantasy Football?

I mostly use rankings by Scott Pianowski with yahoo and then listen to a few podcasts here and there. But what kind of tools and sites do you guys use? Any paid ones that you like?

Rotoviz is really good but I just don't like the idea of paying for them, so I don't.

Just an absolutely garbage organization.

how many players have apparently been mistreated by the Skins? Williams is still a holdout, Guice has had multiple infections after his ACL injury and is nowhere close to playing, Cravens is suing them for all sorts of reasons, Smith has had infections. Now the McCoy stuff. Who's their team doctor, Nick Riviera?!

Not mention the whole debacle with RG3.

Not a good look for the organization but the player was a willing participant in rushing the process. Players owe it to themselves to put their health ahead of what’s best for the team.

Got my draft coming up, we do a 4 keeper league, with 14 teams. Needless to say running backs are usually picked in the first round, and the pickings are usually slim beyond the rookies. I’m having trouble picking my 4 this year out of 6 candidates

For sure keeping: Nick Chubb and Tyreek Hill

Then I have Cam Newton, Chris Carson, Sony Michel, and Baker Mayfield.

Trying to decide whether I keep all three RBs and Hill, or whether it’s worth keeping one of the QBs. Leaning toward the thinking that the QBs may still be there and I can grab them with my second round pick.

Any thoughts?
