      Fishing Report Clubs - LIMITED MEMBERSHIP - Join Today - FREE   01/24/2018

      Fishing Minnesota had added a new menu item (see above) called Fishing Report Clubs. It's a way to keep the really good fishing reports coming and being shared only with those who also provide detailed fishing reports. We will only approve new members who request to join if they have already posted a recent fishing report in the area forum, associated with the Fishing Report Club area  you want to join. We are going to limit the number of regular memberships, in the Fishing Report Clubs, to the top 20  members in each Club, to those with the best frequency and quality fishing reports provided in the club and less so in the regular fishing report forum open to all members. The higher quality fishing report reserved for the club of course. If  you want fishing reports  around your area, I would Join Now, some of the clubs are starting to fill fast. Use the Fishing Reports Club link in the Menu above (after you've posted a fishing report in the regular area forum) and request to Join.

    You know what we all love...

    When you enchant people, you fill them with delight and yourself in return. Have Fun!!!

FFL Draft question

Recommended Posts

Dave B

We have a 16 team league that is primarily scoring (only pts for TDs-6 and 3 pts for 100 rushing/receiving or 300 yds passing).

I have the #2 pick and wont pick again until 31 and 34. Because of the 16 teams RBs are usually even more important than other leagues.

Since I NEED points out of that 1 pick, I am leaning toward Tomlinson since Alexander hasnt been without Hutchinson and LJ hasnt played a full year yet. Assuming LJ or Alexander go #1, am I crazy for passing on one of these guys and taking a "safer" pick that might not do as well? Remember, my 2nd back will likely be a scrub at pick 31.

Down to Earth

Personally I think if Alexander is there he is the "safe" pick. Heck in a league so TD heavy I'd take him at #1. I know he lost Hutch, but that line is still solid across the board. Besides, they play in the NFC West. That means they get to play the defenses of SF, AZ, and St. Louis twice a year. The Seattle offense is still going to be pretty darn good, so I think there are going to be plenty of TD opportunities for Alex.

Truthfully though I think it is splitting hairs when looking at the top 3 and it really comes down to personal preference. You can find faults which each of them as well as great upside. Good Luck in your decision.

I would pick Alexander at #1. Most consistant. Less of a gamble than LT or LJ in my mind.

I would go LJ, alex and LT. I also play in a league just like this and you will get frustrated with a few 90 yards rush 55 yards receive games that get you no points with LT. The other two are primarily runners. In the later pick keep an eye on Brandon jacobs. He had 7 td's last year and I predict 10 this year. Other sleepers include Dunn and Foster who will both see goaline carries this year. Good Luck.

p.s. my record for the first three years in this league is 3rd, 2nd, and 2nd. Still looking for the trophy but at least I'm cashing in every year. grin.gif

      Hey relax, I haven't been out since that weekend. With an 11 months old at home, fishing gets put to a halt quickly! I've been following the threads as much as I can. I know guys are catching crappies in the deeper water still, basins with the chance to go up to shallow. French is usually good for that but have heard Roberd's has come in late. Two weeks ago there were ice castle's everywhere and we were drilling to the end of the auger. I like Cedar too near Faribault because it's an easy access and typically holds fish. You'll have to let me know where you go and how you do! Fish on!

      Have to Agree moose the turkeys are becoming a little smarter each year. Better decoys have definitely upped my odds last few years. Seriously considering those Dave smiths or some Avian X.  Moose what are you using for a setup combo with those Avians? My customs look nice but always looking for something better

      Watching fish on the camera is really fun> One day a musky was being a real pia!  But it was fun watching him. Some days it's around some days not. today I saw him only once.  You sure can learn alot on what it looks like on your depth finder and how the fish are reacting to the different techniques a guy uses!  Have fun, good fishing!

      The tip-up was in slightly shallower water but the difference was probably about two feet.  Sounds like Devil's Lake is the good bet but that's quite a jaunt.  I have heard that water clarity is a big issue out west and that would really stink if you get somewhere and can't see.  Might soak some suckers on Mille Lacs since it looks like the pike angling season is extended again this year.  Good luck this weekend!

      Decoys sure have come along ways from the foam things my grandpa used. I bought some Avian X decoys and retired grandpa’s foam things. I have noticed I am getting more birds into range with the better decoys.

      I found a great bait selection at the Baxter Fleet Farm today.  3 sizes of suckers, multiple sizes of golden shiners, and of course fat heads and crappies. The first bait shop I tried only had fat heads and crappies.
