      UPDATED: MESSAGE BOARDS CLOSING AFTER DRAFT   03/08/2017

      After careful consideration, we have decided that we will sunset our message boards after this year's NFL Draft. Since we opened our boards a decade ago, the digital landscape has greatly evolved. While we understand there remains a smaller group of highly-engaged fans who participate in conversation in our forums, a significant amount of the dialogue about our team and our games has migrated away to other social media platforms over the past several years. Our message boards will remain up and running through Friday, May 5th, and will be removed on May 6th. We recognize that this change may upset avid members of our community. However, we look to utilize our time and resources to focus on how we can best connect with our fans across an array of digital/social outlets. If you are not already engaging us and other members of the Ravens Flock on our Facebook page, Instagram account, through Twitter or Snapchat, we invite you to follow us on those channels and continue to participate in our social communities. In addition, the commenting feature on our website articles will remain intact. Members will be able to continue using their boards account to log in and share their thoughts at the bottom of every news story. We’d like to thank all the Flock members and our moderators who have brought thoughtful conversation to this space and made our community great for the last 10 years. Ravens Social Media Hub »

17 posts in this topic

Its an 8 team league, I made a couple of trades to find out who the weak fantasy players are-the ones who will accept bad trades on their own merrits. So heres what I am working with-

QB- Drew Brees
QB-Matt Ryan

WR-Calvin Johnson
WR-Aj Green
WR-Wes welker

RB-Arian Foster
RB-Darren McFadden

TE-Jimmy Graham

Flex-Maurice Jones Drew
Flex-Darren Sproles
Flex-Jamaal Charles

Def- Chicago
Kicker-Blair walsh

Bench-
Andy Dalton
Julio Jones
Marques Colston
Damariyus Thomas
hakeem Nicks
Dennis Pitta
Ravens D- [i]Keeping them for good luck even though it sucks now lol[/i]

So far I am undefeated and I came into this league being rated the worst drafted team an likely to go winless...But by trading and being smart I out-whitted everyone and probably will never be beaten. Hey the best way to win in leagues is to find that player who thinks they are good but will give up easy trades for hot players before the season started.

Notable Trade Prior to start of season-

I traded--[i]Aaron Rodgers, Carson Palmer, Greg Jennings,Lesean Mccoy Rob Gronkowski FOR [/i]

[b][i]Drew Brees, Matt Ryan, Calvin Johnson, Julio Jones, Arian Foster, Hakeem Nicks, and Jimmy Graham.[/i][/b]

He really wanted rodgers so he got him but at the end of the day I had the better deal.

I once made a 4 team league where I controlled all 4 teams. What I found out was that star named players don't actually help that much. It's actually the matchups. I think I made a team with all the Saints back in 2008 and they blew away some teams. It was pretty even on all teams considering that they all had starting players.

Its a ten team league so no team is awful. The worst team:

Cutler
D. Thomas
D.Jackson
Crabtree
A. Morris
R. Bush
L. Moore
O. Daniels
Pitt

He also has Dalton, Steve Smith, G. Jennings ( fantasy death this year)

Sadly im only 4-3 this year. Fantasy football is such random luck.

It really is by luck. Matchups are a big thing too, obviously. That's why I just picked up Freeman last week. Had a couple good match ups coming his way. Glad I was right. This is my first time doing it fantasy and I don't think I did too bad.

Ten person league and I'm currently 6-1!

My starting lineup THIS week.

QB Josh Freeman
HB Alfred Morris
HB Steven Jackson
WR Demaryius Thomas
WR Brandon Marshall
TE Antonio Gates
W/R Malcom Floyd.
W/T Heath Miller
K Robby Gould
Def Seahawks

BN Matt Ryan
BN Ray Rice
BN Torrey Smith
BN Nate Washington
BN Devery Henderson
BN Texans Def

Dustin Keller! Surely you could do better than that! Check the FA list for Fasano or Chandler.
