    What a bunch of face-saving nonsense.

    Mon Aug 26 10:33pm ET

    As you probably know by now, the message board is my only means of expression on RT Sports at the moment.  As such, I would like to take this opportunity to answer some...

    Questions from the draft:

    What is the league URL for the RTFFC Purple 3 league in which Axe Elf drafted a K and a D first?

    https://www.rtsports.com/fantasy-football-league/233342

    What was Axe Elf trying to prove?

    Axe Elf is attempting to prove that he can win a 12-team snake draft league after taking a K and a D in the first two rounds.  Where's the glory in winning with Davante Adams and Joe Mixon?  People would just say that Axe Elf got lucky.  If Axe Elf beats you after drafting a K and a D first--that's legendary.

    Did Axe Elf make a bet that he could win a league after taking a K and a D first?

    No; Axe Elf did not make a bet (other than the $250 he paid to play in the league, of course).  Axe Elf is just bored with winning in traditional ways, and prefers to challenge himself to new and unusual feats of extraordinary fantasy football prowess.

    Why was the chat room on suicide watch after the draft?

    The angry mob grabbed their pitchforks because they believed that Axe Elf "tanking" the RTFFC Purple 3 draft created an unfair advantage for the other 11 owners in that league, compared to the owners who had drafted in other RTFFC Purple leagues.  Nothing, of course, could be further from the truth.  The Draft Analyzer currently has one team ranked worse than Axe Elf in that league, and no fewer than FIFTEEN teams in the RTFFC Purple division ranked worse than Axe Elf (with four RTFFC Purple leagues yet to draft).  If Axe Elf should be banned for creating an unfair advantage, then every other owner who drafted an even worse team should also be banned until they learn to draft "correctly."

    Why was Axe Elf muted in chat?  He didn't deserve a punishment.

    Axe Elf was muted in chat so that he wouldn't fan the flames of the angry mob by defending himself.  Administration hopes that the whole thing just dies down eventually, but fears that Axe Elf would keep the arguments alive if he attempts to defend himself.  (They are probably right.)  They don't want that sort of thing dominating the chat room during their busiest time of the year.  It was really more of a protection than a punishment--protecting Axe Elf from name-calling and death threats, and protecting the RT Sports site itself from the appearance of a bloodthirsty chat lobby.

    Why Auction Drafts Are Better Than Snake Drafts, Reason #529:

    You take a K and a D first in an auction league, and nobody cares.  Do it in a snake draft, and people lose their minds.

    Damon Harrison Feb 20 9:50pm ET

    The Detroit Lions plan to release defensive tackle Damon Harrison in the coming days, according to a source. The move will free up around $6.7 million in salary cap space but will leave the team with a hole on their defensive line up the middle. Even though Snacks Harrison had a down year in 2019 due to knee and groin injuries, he was their best defensive player in the second half of 2018 after he was acquired from the Giants. Harrison finished with 49 tackles last year, his lowest total since his rookie year in 2012, and he only had two sacks in 15 games. He will consider retirement this offseason while seeing what materializes in free agency. In his prime, Harrison was one of the best run-stuffing nose tackles in the game.

    Corey Davis Feb 20 9:40pm ET

    The Tennessee Titans aren't expected to pick up wide receiver Corey Davis' fifth-year team option for the 2021 season. If the Titans were to pick it up, Davis would be owed around $15.8 million in 2021. The 25-year-old former fifth overall pick in 2017 had 65 catches for 891 yards in his sophomore season in 2018, but he regressed in 2019 when he had only 43 receptions for 601 yards and two touchdowns. Rookie A.J. Brown became the Titans go-to No. 1 receiver last year. Tennessee envisioned Davis becoming that guy when they drafted him, but he's failed to live up to expectations in his three seasons. Heading into 2020, he'll be a WR4/5 without much upside in this run-first offense.

    A.J. Green Feb 20 9:40pm ET

    Cincinnati Bengals head coach Zac Taylor said on Thursday that wide receiver A.J. Green is "a guy we want to be around." Green hasn't played in a game since December of 2018 and hasn't been a Pro Bowler since 2017 in his last full season. He's due to become a free agent next month and has played in just nine games the last two years, but the Bengals could still use him. If Cincinnati can't reach a long-term extension with the veteran, they're likely to use the franchise tag on him. Turning 32 this summer, Green has had 1,000 yards receiving in six of his eight seasons, but his fantasy stock will be way down since he hasn't been able to stay healthy of late. If he remains with the Bengals, as is expected, he'll likely have LSU quarterback Joe Burrow throwing him passes in 2020.

    Jordan Reed Feb 20 9:30pm ET

    The Washington Redskins released tight end Jordan Reed on Thursday. The move was expected and will save the team $8.5 million in salary cap space. Reed missed all of the 2019 season with a concussion, his seventh documented one in his seven seasons. He was just cleared from the league's concussion protocol on Wednesday and has never played a full season in the NFL due to head and other injuries. Despite the lingering concussion concerns, a source close to Reed said he wants to continue playing. In a career-high 14 games in 2015, Reed had 87 catches for 952 yards and 11 touchdowns. Without Reed in the picture, Washington's top tight end is Jeremy Sprinkle, who had 26 catches in 2019. However, he's considered more of a blocker, so the 'Skins will surely look to bolster the position in free agency or the draft. If Reed continues his career and lands elsewhere, he'll strictly be a low-end injury risk as a TE2.

    Jarvis Landry Feb 20 9:20pm ET

    Cleveland Browns wide receiver Jarvis Landry (hip) is expected to be sidelined six to eight months after having surgery to shave down some cartilage and remove two pieces of bone embedded in the labrum of his left hip on Feb. 4. The Browns expect Landry to make a full recovery for the 2020 season, but he might be limited in training camp and could be questionable for the Week 1. He will be on crutches for two weeks and then can continue with physical therapy and riding a stationary bike. Despite dealing with the hip injury in 2019, Landry didn't miss a game for the sixth straight year and had career highs in yards (1,174) and yards per catch (14.1). His six touchdowns were the second-best total of his career. With a new coaching staff in place, losing repetitions in training camp could be problematic. Landry will have some added risk as a WR2 in PPR leagues in 2020.

    Everson Griffen Feb 20 6:03pm ET

    Minnesota Vikings defensive end Everson Griffen met two figures that voided the final three years of his contract by securing six or more sacks and playing 57 percent or more of the defensive snaps in 2019. As such, Griffen has exercised his right to opt out of his deal, according to a source. That will free up roughly $13 million in salary cap space for the Vikings, with $800,000 in dead money. The 32-year-old was already at risk of being cut with a $13.9 million cap hit in 2020. The Vikings might try to keep him around at a reduced price, as Griffen had eight sacks and 24 QB knockdowns last season. He's been a great complement to Danielle Hunter on the other side of the line, so losing Griffen would be a blow to the Vikes pass rush.

    Odell Beckham Jr. Feb 20 5:13pm ET

    Cleveland Browns WR Odell Beckham Jr. (core) should be completely recovered from his core muscle surgery in about a month, according to a source.

    Fantasy Spin: It appears like Beckham should be ready of offseason workouts as long as he does not suffer a setback. He will be working under a new offensive scheme next season but is still one of the top receivers in the NFL. He will be a weekly starting option in fantasy leagues in 2020.

    Jordan Reed Feb 20 5:03pm ET

    Washington Redskins TE Jordan Reed was released Thursday, Feb. 20, according to a source.

    Fantasy Spin: Reed wants to play next season, so fantasy players can keep an eye on the situation. He probably will receive interest from teams but is a risky option because of his injury history. Reed could be a No. 2 tight end in fantasy leagues if he starts for a team.

    Antonio Brown Feb 20 4:33pm ET

    Free-agent WR Antonio Brown (Patriots) is scheduled to have his grievance against the Oakland Raiders heard by an arbitrator in May, according to a source.

    Derek Carr Feb 20 1:43pm ET

    Las Vegas Raiders QB Derek Carr recently posted an photo on Instagram of himself talking with Chicago Bears DL Khalil Mack following a game last season, and the post is part of speculation that Carr could be traded to the Bears this offseason and reunited with Mack.

    Fantasy Spin: The Bears have said they expect Mitchell Trubisky to be their 2020 starter, but they also said he could have competition in the QB room, and Carr would certainly provide as much. Stay tuned ...

    Quinton Dunbar Feb 20 1:20pm ET

    Washington Redskins cornerback Quinton Dunbar said that he reached out to the team to discuss a reasonable contract restructure, but the team declined to have conversations, according to sources close to Dunbar. Despite denying that he requested a trade, Dunbar remains adamant in his desire to be traded or released. The 27-year-old was one of the better cover corners in the league last season, but it's looking like the new regime in Washington isn't falling for his contract demands. There's a good chance that they'll look to trade Dunbar this offseason if they can't work something out with him. He had 37 tackles (31 solo) and a career-high four interceptions in 11 games played in 2019.

    Quinton Dunbar Feb 20 1:03pm ET

    Washington Redskins CB Quinton Dunbar recently reached out to the team to discuss a possible contract restructure, but the club declined to engage in a conversation, according to sources, and he remains 'resolute' in his desire to be released or traded.

    Jameis Winston Feb 20 12:43pm ET

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers Jameis Winston, a pending free agent, could be offered a two-year deal by the Buccaneers with the first year guaranteed and the second year being a team option, according to sources. The first year would pay Winston roughly the same as a franchise tag ($27 million).

    Fantasy Spin: Winston threw for a career-high 5,109 yards, 33 TDs last season -- and yes, 30 interceptions -- to finish as a top-five fantasy QB for the first time in five seasons. A return to the Bucs would definitely keep him in the QB1 conversation, but a move to another team would necessitate a full re-evaluation of his fantasy status.

    Jarvis Landry Feb 20 10:40am ET

    Cleveland Browns wide receiver Jarvis Landry had surgery on his hip on February 4, according to a post from his personal Instagram account. The surgery comes as somewhat of a surprise as Landry had previously stated that he would not need surgery on his hip, which bothered him throughout the 2019 season. Landry is expected to make a full recovery and should return to the team at some point in training camp, which begins in late July. According to reports, Landry had visited with multiple hip specialists since the end of the season and eventually decided that surgery was the proper route to take. He will remain a solid WR2 for fantasy in 2020.

    Everson Griffen Feb 20 10:23am ET

    Jarvis Landry Feb 20 8:43am ET

    Cleveland Browns WR Jarvis Landry (hip) changed his mind and underwent hip surgery this week. He's expected to be back at some time in training camp.

    Fantasy Spin: Landry's 83-1174-6 showing was one of the better showings of his career, and his 14.1 yards per catch was a career high. He's a low-end WR2 or a high-end WR3 in PPR leagues.

    Feb 20 12:43am ET

    Impending free-agent S Nate Ebner (Patriots) is one of 19 New England Patriots set to hit free agency this spring, but he is hopeful the two sides will be able to come together on a contract that will keep him with the team that drafted him in the sixth round of the 2012 draft.

    Stefon Diggs Feb 19 9:43pm ET

    Minnesota Vikings WR Stefon Diggs may be the subject of some trade calls this offseason, but he faces 'plenty long' odds of getting traded, according to NFL Network's Tom Pelissero. Diggs recently prompted discussion about potential unhappiness with his situation when he removed Vikings photos from his social media accounts.

    Demetrius Harris Feb 19 9:00pm ET

    The Chicago Bears agreed to terms on a one-year deal with tight end Demetrius Harris on Wednesday, according to sources. Harris was cut by the Browns recently and spent time with head coach Matt Nagy when they were both with the Chiefs. The 28-year-old caught just 15 passes for 149 yards and three touchdowns in 2019 despite David Njoku missing most of the year with an injury in Cleveland. Chicago was looking to upgrade their tight end room after both Trey Burton and Adam Shaheen missed large chunks of last season due to injuries. Harris will have an opportunity with his new team, but it's still unlikely he has a huge pass-catching role is Burton and Shaheen are on the field.

    Demetrius Harris Feb 19 5:43pm ET

    Free-agent TE Demetrius Harris (Browns) agreed to terms on a one-year contract with the Chicago Bears Wednesday, Feb. 19, according to sources. Financial terms were not disclosed.
