I dont see Johnson repeating last year. AP has done it for how many years now? Safest play. He took me to a championship last year, i'd ride with him again.

So what happened with your #1 pick?? No AP?

Funny thing, i actually took some slack for taking Johnson over AP. The difference to me was when i looked at their schedules, especially down the road at playoff time. CJ plays Houston, Jax, and KC in what would be our playoffs and CJ's schedule overall looked much better.

Kevin Kolb

Maurice Jones Drew

Steven Jackson

Steve Smith(NYG)

Jacoby Jones

Antonio Gates

Jeff Reed

NYJ Defense

Seeing it is a PPR league, I should have started LeShaun McCoy instead of Jackson. Oh yea, and I probably should have started Austin Collie instead of Jacoby. Any QB besides Kolb would have been helpful as well. Good thing my opponent had some tough luck as well, but I will probably lose.

But in the fishing minnesota league it looks like I will nab a victory.

I have already won this week with the above guys, I am up by 8 and have Greene and my opponents done. Unbelievably a guy in my league started Arian Foster today- guy had a great game

What's unbelievable about starting Foster? I have him and didn't think twice about starting him behind CJ2K. Houston has that Denver running style (Kubiak) and executes it quite well. I'm not counting on 250yds/3TD's every week, but he should be a good #2/#3 RB if he stay's healthy and Kubiak doesn't lose his mind again like he did last year with Slaton.

wow, he was benched in that many leagues? they must not have paid attention in the preseason in those yahoo leagues

ESPN leagues he was started in 79% of leagues

i had him starting on every single team i have him on. 1) he's looked good so far in preseason 2) he was going to be the main back 3) it was the colts D

edit: just asked my buddy who's in a yahoo league, he said Foster was started in 61% of the leagues? not sure where you got that 90% number, it seems off regardless

It would be unbelievable not to start Foster. He was a stud in the preseason and is all the Texans have for a running back seeing Tate went down. Anyone that did not start him must not pay attention at all.

Yeah it was awesome lol, I had pick 10 in a 10 team league, everyone went with Rodgers, Brees, Peyton, all in the middle of the 1st so I got Gore and Turner back to back. Then still got Charles and Pierre as backups lol. I'm looking to trade one of my 4 nice RB's for a upper tier WR.

I have had Pierre Thomas the past 2 or 3 years, he is a fantasy headach and dream rolled into one. One week he will absolutely go off and then nada for 2-3 weeks

Forsure, he's to good to pass where you can get him in the draft though and they got rid of the other RB's that would steal touches beside Bush and he's not much of a goaline threat.

well I am down 20 with Boldin, Gates and Ravens D and the guy I play against has Floyd......1 pt per 10 yrds and 6 for td's and 1 pt for sack, int, fumble recovery....here is my team

E. Manning

Jones-Drew

Mendenhall

Boldin

P. Harvin

Gates

Phi K

Balt D

on my bench- D. Mcnabb, Dez Bryant, C.J Spiller, Braylon Edwards, I had drafted Javon Ringer and L. Maroney but dropped them and picked up P Hillis and M. Clayton....I think I am ok at RB since besides bye weeks they both are for sure plugs and #1 wr is good with potential in Bryant and Harvin (except wk 1..wow) I hope to drop McNabb and pick up F Taylor or even J Ringer back

Only doing one team this year, I got tired of cheering for and against the same player on the same day.

Here are my starters from this week plus bench. Its a ppr league with every touchdown worth 6.

QB - P. Manning

WR - R. Moss

WR - M. Colston

WR - A. Collie (not a bad week for a 14th round pick, not sure how I convinced myself to start him

RB - R. Brown

RB - J. Addai

TE - V. Davis

K - R. Gould

DEF - San Fran

Bench

Houshmanzdeh

K. Walter

S. Breaston

M. Barber

L. Tomlinson

C. Williams

I was the 10th pick out of 10 teams. I'm really hoping one or two of my RB's can reclaim some past glory. There just wasn't much value at RB when my picks came around.

i had a team with AP, Jonathan Stewart, Ryan Matthews, Calvin Johnson, Andre Johnson, and Jermichal Finley and my team scored 35 points in an ESPN standard league

ouch! a lot of normally high-scoring, dependable guys laid fantasy eggs this week

      On the south end...   A great week of fishing with walleyes and saugers caught in good numbers.   The go-to presentation, again, was a jig and frozen emerald shiner.  Emerald shiners are a staple in LOW and walleyes love them.  Other minnows worked also, but emerald shiners are a favorite of anglers for good reason.   The Lighthouse Gap area, Morris Point Gap and just in front of Pine Island held nice fish in 17 - 21' of water.  Various schools of walleyes and saugers across the south shore.     A quarter ounce jig in gold, glow white, pink, orange, chartreuse, or a combo of these colors tipped with a minnow worked well again.   Some big pike and jumbo perch being caught by walleye anglers. On the Rainy River...  Some nice walleyes were caught on the river this weekend, although most anglers normally head to the lake.  12 - 15' of water is holding some nice fish.   Sturgeon fishing on the Rainy River is closed until the keep season starts up again July 1st. Up at the NW Angle...  Some nice walleyes being caught along with a mixed bag.  12 - 25 feet of water.  Points, neck down areas and bays with warming water were holding good fish this week.    The go-to presentation was a jig and minnow as on the south shore.  A mixed bag as is common around the Angle.

      Nice work!   Here's two words you hardly ever hear anyone say anymore.  "grateful and humbled"   
    • Brianf.
      RLG, thanks for the shout-out!     Jeff and I are still trying to wrap our heads around what happened this past weekend.  We are humbled and full of gratitude  for having won 'The Classic' for a second time.     We practiced through all the rain on Thurs and the wind on Friday and found six different spots holding big fish.  Fishing was good on both days with several 'overs' in our catch...but would it hold up for another day?   We didn't know.     On tourney day, we made a long run to our first spot where I lucked out on a 26.5"er on my second cast.  Jeff followed up with a thick 27" er a few minutes later, which turned out to be the big fish for the event at 7.26lbs.  We finished out our limit and weighed-in at 10:30 am for the welfare of the fish in our livewell.    There were some big weights in this event which would have won in most other years, but - for whatever reason - this was our day.  Everything just went our way.  Again, we are just super grateful and humbled by this success.  We also want to congratulate all the other anglers who did well and give a big 'thank you' to the tournament organizers who put on such a great event!

      I had a good start to the season on opener. Fishing was slow but consistent. I had four eaters in the box by lunch dragging perch raps. Crappies were biting. I haven't been up since so don't know how things have changed since then, but I'm sure the walleye continue to migrate out into the main basins.
    • redlabguy
      Let’s start this by congratulating Brianf and son for winning their second City Autoglass Walleye Classic last weekend. These guys know how to fish.  We just got to the lake for the season. Chores are almost done and I’m ready to fish.  red(new dog is more yellow)labguy

      I tried starting a 2024 Lake Vermilion Fishing Report topic but it doesn't show up on this board.   Maybe somebody else knows how to do it?
    • Mike89
      then use the BB gun after catching them!!!    and then enjoy rabbit dinner for revenge!!!

      Yep crazy. 🤪 I played goalie in HS and my two grandsons play hockey now.  
    • gimruis
      Hockey gear in general is very expensive.  I was in a Pure Hockey last month to get my skates sharpened and while they were doing it I looked around at gear.  A new pair of CCM/Bauer customized skates can easily top 1000 bucks.  Then you need everything else.  It would be several thousand before you had everything.  And then your kid grows like a weed so you need to buy bigger gear.   Then there's goalie gear.  That's enough to buy a small boat.   Nothing cheap about that sport by any means.
    • leech~~
      That's a good idea Mike.  But, my sweet wife who's never killed anything in her life, wants them all dead and their skulls on poles! 👹  🤣
