    We’ve had some great fantasy TE play. Shannon Sharpe, Todd Heap, Dennis Pitta, and now Ben Watson is a popular play.

    We’ve had decent fantasy running backs, two all time greats (Rice and Lewis) and McGahee had a good stretch. Buck Allen is getting some fantasy love this year as is Alex Collins.

    Mason and SSR were steady performers for a stretch too.

    And, of course, the Ravens defense turned in some amazing fantasy performances as have their kickers over the years.

    If you were playing fantasy way back when, Michael Jackson and Derrick Alexander were absolute studs.

    So yeah, there’s plenty of fantasy value, even in Baltimore.

    LOL, Testeverde and Jamal Lewis! That goes back so far as to when I had hair, and most of my teeth too... Bc

    Sounds like it's more daily fantasy and he would be looking for "sleeper" plays that would be cheap and that nobody else would know about so there would be low ownership. A good example would be Alex Collins the last couple of weeks.

But this season I am going through an almost complete indifference to football in general and the Ravens in particular. I have tickets to five of the games this year, but honestly I don't particularly care if I go anymore or not. I'm considering giving my Bears ticket away next week if the weather is nice just to go to the beach instead - not for any particular reason, just because I'd rather hang out in OC than spend the day at the stadium. And I mean give away, not sell, that's how little I care. I've been through losing seasons before so that can't be the only cause. Yes the anthem business has something to do with it, but it's more than that. I can't put my finger on it but I'm simply beginning to not care much at all about the NFL. Kind of depressed thinking about it. Anyone sort of feeling the same way around here? Sorry to be a downer, but it's been on my mind lately. I was out of town last weekend and made nearly no effort to watch the game. Strange feeling - hope it changes...
    Yes, I do feel that way and it is because the Ravens have no one to get excited about and they are boring to watch. Our players are all meh! We don't have a star player that people want to pay money just to see. I've never been an "NFL" fan. I don't watch random games just for the hell of it. So, now that the Ravens lack excitement, I kind of don't care.

    I just spent an hour in YouTube watching video of the streets of Baltimore after the Mile High Miracle. That will make you feel better about football.

    I have to admit, I'm feeling the same way, and this kneeling crap has definitely made it worse (see post I just launched about the pissed off Ravens fan). For instance, when the O's lost their first 33 (or whatever it was) games a while back, I was still wearing the colors and putting up with the abuse around here. You always stick with your team, but again, the politics have got to go.

    I've posted this angle before and I'll repeat it, with apologies to anyone that's already remembered it:

    Living in a loser football town like Cincitucky really makes you appreciate our Ravens, not matter how infuriating they are on the field. Imagine FIFTY consecutive years of continuous loser football, with 5, count 'em, FIVE playoff wins. To some extent, we've been spoiled; in our 20+ years, we have the #1 playoff win percentage of ANY NFL team, including Stoolers, Pats, etc. http://www.foxsports.com/nfl/gallery...32-to-1-010617

    And there were lean years after 2001, when no hope was in sight and before long, we were on top again.

    I'm as pissed off and embarrassed as everyone else, but unlike the locals here, we Ravens fans have some great memories, 2 SB titles and easily a successful franchise when you look at the big picture.

    Have also told this story about my Brother-in Law, and will repeat it. This guy is the biggest bengals fan in the world. Season tickets, goes to 4 or so away games, writes annual 30 page letters to Mike Brown, etc. He's also the most positive, upbeat guy I've ever met. I literally have never seen him angry or sad. But a month or so after our first SB win, he came in my mancave, looked around at all the championship stuff and I've never seen him this depressed, the look on his face was memorably dejected. He looked at me and said "I can't believe you got there before we did, and in only 5 years".

    So hang in there if possible, if you need to vent; this is a great forum to do that, but as was said in Shawshank Redemption; "hope is a good thing"

    And Pill, let me know when you're headed to OC; we can drink away our sorrows (and I might need to buy your tickets for the colts game if you end up selling :)
    Good points and good story TOW. Guess it does sort of put it in perspective. We are a spoiled fanbase for sure. We forget there are teams out there that have never even sniffed a championship and here we are with two in just over 20 years. My apathy is more towards the NFL in general vs simply the Ravens. Yeah I suppose if the Ravens were 4-0 or 3-1 but looking good I'd be a little more excited, but I just have to be honest and say the older I get the less important the NFL is to my life. Still enjoy football but the days of life/death bases on how they perform on Sunday are kinda gone. May start going to like 2 or 3 games a year next season, but no intention of selling my PSL's, at this point anyway.

    I'll be back in OC the last weekend of Oct I think. They are having a craft beer festival down by the inlet. Let me know if you'll be down that weekend. Mrs. Pill was down there last weekend and said the H2Oi business was beyond bad. Everyone's having a fit over them now and trying to figure out a way to keep them out next year. I heard they were even floating the idea of inspections on the way in town so cars with illegal exhaust systems and things like that could be kept out. Kinda crazy, but they were THAT bad from everything I've heard.

    ...and if you are looking for tickets to that game I can definitely get you some. We have a good size group going to that one. You are welcome to join us for sure!

    Hey man. Yeah good timing on selling those PSL's. I bought two MORE a few seasons ago if you can believe that. Four in a row now. Couldn't pass up the chance to buy my neighbor's tickets. I don't expect to sell my PSL's unless I move completely out of the area. But selling several games a year is looking better and better.

    Pill: Will text you OC dates; probably will be there the week of the 22nd so I can watch the game that day and also Thursday night with fellow Ravens sufferers at Mothers. Will also let you know about tickets. My daughter has never been to M&T and wants to "be with our people", so let me check her schedule; would probably be the irsay game.

    And yes, OC is a mess and in need of drastic solutions. This pic of brunt rubber one block from our place really pissed me off:

    Oh well, I'm off to watch the Terps/OSU massacre
