bye bye Mr Winston....NFL Network says is suspending him for 4 weeks for groping a woman in a ride-share car back in 2016. these young guys never learn.  
Poor Frank, now he will be minus 2 QBs, first Palmer, now Jameis and then there is Flacco, who will lose his job to that Heisman stud sometime this year. Tough blow before the season even starts.

And my second to last pick in the draft gets named Week 1 starting quarterback.
That's a shame. He's going to get murdered.

Thanks for getting it, D!
 
I do have a question for everybody. Not that I want to suck everybody (like Feder ) into the matter of naming my team, but I have been debating between TyT.Y.-ties and Gronk's TyT.Y.-ties. Any thoughts? If I change it, I want to do so soon (like for everybody -- the farther we get into the season the more of a pain in the ass this kind of minutiae is).

I'm not commenting on any trades as I have no idea how anything will play out ... but if anything is clear in this league is that there is a major disparity in how 1st round picks are valued.

Did the 49ers give the nod to Mullens like at the absolutely very last moment or something?  I mean I am in class from 20 minutes before kickoff through approximately the first half.  If I had known he was going to start, I would have went after him in the second round.  Last I had heard, which granted was a couple hours before, it looked like Beathard was going to play.  Ugh...

When they cut Tom Savage and said Beathard was going to be active, most people assumed Beathard would start.   Then a report came out that Beathard was going to be the back up. Even at that point, I think everyone thought...."yea, sure.   Or how short is Mullen's leash going to be?"     But nope, the Raiders made him look like the second coming of Brett Farve.

FINALLY, a Rashaad Penny sighting. The #4 overall draft pic is still #3 in the depth chart.

In light of ALL the defenses I am carrying and in particular the one I picked up last week, I am considering a change to my team's name.  I am thinking I have a couple of options, and I wanted to run them by you all.  Here they are...
 
Big D in my TyT.Y.-ties
 
OR
 
A LOT of D in my TyT.Y.-ties
 

 
Thoughts?

Gents,
 
A question.  Does an owner have to use all his pro spots?  Meaning, could I decide that I don't want to keep 12 guys and protect only 10 or 11?  
 
If so, when do I complete my roster: do I get picks after 9.10?  Or do I complete my roster with free agency in week 1?

Travis, you would complete it with Free Agency in Week 1. There is no advantage in NOT protecting the # of PRO spots you own.  The good news is you have enough decent WRs to justify keeping them

Thanks, Steve.
 
I might have enough decent RCs worth protecting, but I'm not yet certain about that.

T., with all due respect, that whole, initial line of reasoning is weak. This is when you wheel and deal, bro! You kind of cannot go wrong. Get yourself something for (what you are claiming to perceive essentially to be) nothing -- and build (strategic) good will and relationships in the process... and just have some fun haggling (but not hairsplitting)! This is precisely where the game is played, and instead you are pondering making the, again with all due respect, needlessly dumb move of cutting extra players! If you are going to do that, just give away a couple protection spots and at least make some connections in the process and build yourself some good will with a couple guys.
