  1. Arizona Diamondbacks 2018 Outlook

    so the season is over and the d'backs raw number of HRs dropped by 20% at home, comparing 2018 to 2017. interesting tidbits: the diamondbacks had two 30+ HR bats (goldschmidt and peralta). jake lamb ended up on the DL for most of the season, and contributed very little in the way of home runs. a solid HR producer gone. aj pollock actually saw an increase in home run production, with more than half of them coming at home. an increase to the overall numbers that was not expected. steven souza was a huge disappointment, contributing only five home runs in about half a season's amount of games. similarly to lamb, he was expected to produce HRs and didn't. i'm not 100% convinced that the humidor caused the full 20% drop in home runs, but i think it definitely made an impact. obviously more games at home will help ultimately show what effects the humidor has on home run production, but for the first season of installment this seems pretty close to what was expected/predicted. what does fantasy land think about diamondback players going forward? is chase field a consideration for fantasy players, or is it mostly a non-issue?
  2. Odell Beckham Jr. 2018 Outlook

    https://www.theringer.com/nfl/2018/10/17/17987530/misused-underused-players interesting write-up on obj's usage. WR Odell Beckham Jr., Giants Early in his career, Beckham emerged as one of the league’s elite deep threats; in 2015, he reeled in 96 catches for 1,450 yards while averaging 15.1 yards per catch, with six of his 13 touchdowns coming on passes of 20-plus yards (tied for third most, per Pro Football Focus). After inking Beckham to a five-year extension worth up to $90 million this offseason, the expectation was that the Giants made him the highest-paid receiver ever with that type of field-stretching, touchdown-scoring role in mind. That hasn’t panned out. Two weeks have passed since Big Blue View writer Dan Pizzuta put together this montage of the mostly ugly, inaccurate, and low-percentage deep shots Eli Manning has thrown to Beckham this year, and, well, there’s probably no need to update it because things haven’t gotten any better since. Beckham has caught just three of his 10 targets of 20-plus yards this year for a grand total of 78 yards (43rd leaguewide) and one score. His longest reception is 33 yards; he’s averaging a career-low 11.2 yards per reception (85th); and his average air yards per target is just 9.8 (64th)—behind, notably, Colts tight end Eric Ebron (10.0) and just ahead of Jarvis Landry (9.6), per NFL Next Gen Stats. A smattering of his targeted routes this year paints a picture of how the team has deployed its all-world receiver (green represents yards after the catch):

  4. Chad Kelly 2018 Outlook

    so the score from sunday's game with the jets looks bad, but the keenum's number don't appear to be as bad as previous games. is the kelly countdown clock paused? or does boxscore scouting the game betray me with regard to keenum's performance?

    And none of the projection systems will project a .247 avg next season..

    with a caveat related to playing time and/or off-season moves made by the team, garrett hampson could provide tremendous value in colorado. whit merrifield or trea turner type stats, only many rounds later.
  7. Chris Hogan 2018 Outlook

    i'm slightly confused on hogan's talent. i think it was last year they were talking about he had the nickname 7/11 because he was always open. now i'm reading that he can't get good enough separation to create space. what is his talent, blowing past defenders on the outside and creating space with speed alone? has something changed?
  8. Josh Gordon 2018 Outlook

    this is why i said i "agree in theory." the comment i was responding to implied that teams focusing on gordon will open up more short game opportunities. he's not going to be left uncovered, obviously, but teams aren't going to make him a focal point of the defense's game plan if he isn't a proven/legitimate threat.
  9. Josh Gordon 2018 Outlook

    i agree in theory, but gordon has to be proven/believed to be a legitimate threat for this to work. i.e., brady must be able to get gordon the ball deep for teams to respect the threat.
