Julio seems like a good pick this year. The RB situation is too murky even with a camera on them. Roddy is fading but still solid.

Wake up.

I don't see anybody's ADP getting a significant boost except Freeman.

It's only natural that it functions as a commercial for how much potential they all have, especially following such a let down last year.

However, if anyone is seen sitting in ice baths or getting big screws in their feet x-rayed...that commercial effect could go the other way or level it some.

In the end, the focus tends to be on breakout rookies and guys struggling to make the team, so...the change in adp might apply mostly to Freeman.

I still can't figure out why any team would invite the distraction.

If Julio looks explosive and back to form, his adp should get higher from the show.

Extremely suspect defense = fantasy gold with their offense.

Jones if healthy will always be a beast and White is a pretty solid PPR guy.

They will lure you into drafting SJax by giving you a close-up view of him doing things like: sleeping in a hyperbaric chamber, looking jacked as hell while lifting weights, 1x1 interviews of him stating how he wants to prove that he has something left, dreads flapping around while he drops the shoulder on some bastard from practice squad, behind the scenes footage of Hugh jackson saying, 'dayummm he playin like he 21!!', etc.

I could see it affecting Freeman the most. Just look at what it did for Bernard last year. It's one of the reasons I felt so high on him.

I still think Steven Jackson has some left in the tank. He was pretty ok in the last 7 or 8 games last season. I think he will break 1000 yards and still get all the goal line work.

2015 teams

 

Mark Davis Bowlcut (standard scoring + 1 point per 25 return yardage) Record: 6-7 (7th Place Regular Season Finish)

 

Cam Newton, AJ Green, Randall Cobb, Chris Ivory, Latavius Murray, Delanie Walker, Amari Cooper

Graham Gano, Cincinatti DST

Bench: John Brown, Jay Cutler, Alfred Blue, Marcel Reece, Joique Bell, Miami DST, Jamaal Charles (IR)

 

Dylan Spits Hot Fire (start 3WR, standard scoring, 6 point pass TD) Record: 10-3 (MADE CHAMPIONSHIP)

 

Kirk Cousins, Eric Decker, Mike Evans, John Brown, Darren McFadden, Lamar Miller, Rob Gronkowski, Chris Ivory,
Josh Brown, Detriot DST

Bench: Ryan Fitzpatrick, Calvin Johnson, James Jones, Ronnie Hillman, James Starks, Robert Turbin

 

 

All my posted thoughts and opinions are with a standard scoring mindset, unless otherwise noted.

I know what you're saying but I think it's just as much about other guys prices going down. People have never been as anti-RB as they've been this year.

haha this is so true. He'll tear up some weak defense for 120 yards and 2 TDs week 1 but blow out his hamstring on the last drive of the game and be out for 6 weeks. Try to play in week 5 and give you 30 yards on 15 carries and then be out for another 2-3 weeks.

True
He is pretty jacked though

Hard knocks kills value and creates overpriced guys.

If I was coach I would avoid it like the plague.

Awesome 1st ep!

Immediate reaction:

Mike Tice is a tool but at least he's promoting a more physical approach. Matthews is a great 1st round pick.

Davonta Freeman is likable and talented...but seems like he might be easily rattled.

The coaches are as annoyed with Steven Jackson as his fantasy owners.

Roddy White and Harry Douglas are hilarious.

Coach Smith has a...bit of a Jeff Garcia thing happening.

Bryan Cox...or Red Foxx?

Very good TV...I can't imagine this team not bouncing back in a big way.

I like how SJax is mentoring the rbs and Freeman. Was funny when Freeman got hit in that Friday night scrimmage and was complaining how the guy came out of nowhere. Sjax just laughed and said something like, "that's what they do."

As a Julio owner in multiple leagues, it was epic to see him beat that defender for a long td and show off his jets. Means absolutely nothing, but was still nice to see.

Hate hard knocks with a white hot passion as a fantasy drafter.

Last thing I want is more people seeing a healthy roddy.

At least djax is hurt.

Julio is already to rich for my blood

That was my favorite scene. Sjax talking to the group of RBs, that was some inspiring s---.
