I really Dislike Aaron Rodgers there something so arrogant about him, that he doesn't care if his team wins or loses as long as he has good stats.I think we all agree, great to see the Packers win.
I'm no expert, i only listen to the odd podcast, from what they say the issue is more about the franchise not spending $$ on free agents they need, something they addressed this year.I really Dislike Aaron Rodgers there something so arrogant about him, that he doesn't care if his team wins or loses as long as he has good stats.
His arm talent is unreal but he's wasted most of it because he was always at odd with the coach. Should have way more than 1 superbowl win
This is a good story that breaks down the issues that led to McCarthy's departure (tl;dr: Rodgers is a difficult person to work with, but some blame has to fall to McCarthy and the front office as well).I'm no expert, i only listen to the odd podcast, from what they say the issue is more about the franchise not spending $$ on free agents they need, something they addressed this year.
But can see why Rodgers would be a polarising figure.
That is a very good score, well done.Okay, the first round is over. I scored 157.4 - Tyreek "Who?" Hill got injured for just 4.1, but i can bring in DeSean "Sorry Miss" Jackson, who sat on my bench collecting 35.4 (!!!)
I beat my opponent who got 130.9
Now i have to work out how to replace players.
Thank youThat is a very good score, well done.
Tyreek was the no1 ranked WR last season, do NOT drop him. Don't trade him to anyone else either.
Now review your bench players and look at which players are available to add on the waiver wire. You don't want be knee jerk but review your players scores, mainly those drafted in the later rounds. The score isn't the be all and end all but also check the opportunity they have been given i.e. how many rushing attempts or targets/receptions. Furthermore the level of opponent can influence how well that score (a lot moreso than AFL fantasy). If there is a player your are keen on who you think others will be too then you may need to use a waiver to pick up the player. Ideally you can pick them up as a free agent, but there is no way to know so best to use a waiver you are really keen on.
Yeah in some respects kinda like a mini draft for all the players left who are not on someones team. Now that all the games have been played for the week all the players currently not on someones team will be under the waivers system. You waiver number at first is based on your draft position, last pick of the draft gets the first waiver (iirc), pick 1 being good, pick 10 being bad. After you have used a waiver you will go to the back of the waiver queue. There is no limit to the number of waivers you can use and you can use multiple waivers in one week. Set up the waiver for your most desired player in order from first to last.Thank you
I have no idea what the fu** a waiver* is, or how to replace the dude i accidently dropped last week. Will keep trying to work it out though.
*is it like a second draft? and when does it take place? and what the fu** is free agency here?
Cash on Ekeler before Gordon comes to his sensesI have 4 of the top 11 scoring RB's this week with Bell, Carson, Henry and Ekeler.
Wasn't happy picking up Henry but my thoughts have changed now...
Stocked Ekeler came on, got plenty of touches too so doesn't look like a one hit wonder. Biggest value in my draft so far, highest scoring RB this week but Ofc I had him on the bench...
Time to cash one in for a WR or TE me thinks.
I probably should but I thought he was still intent on a trade? EVERYONE knows he isn't worth whatever he's asking.Cash on Ekeler before Gordon comes to his senses
Not exactly true....could always score a touchdown as far as I am aware. My understanding is that besides being able to score with a kick as you referenced it also had something to do with the fact you could score said touchdown by using your feet to carry the ball across the goal line.Like rugby, you could originally only score with a kick. Placing the ball over the line gave you a 'try' at scoring.
Interestingly, is football (soccer) the only code of football where you can score a goal with your head?
I actually made that all up regarding grid iron. I know it's true for rugby.Not exactly true....could always score a touchdown as far as I am aware.

In early versions of the game....throwing the ball was illegal. Thus, likely why it was not called throwball.
