  1. Josh Gordon 2018 Outlook

    Pats had how many WRs in camp? Pats have how many WRs on the active roster the first 2 weeks? Yet, the Pats had that locker empty until....

    Nah, there's no meaning to this move. Just a coincidence.
  3. Josh Gordon 2018 Outlook

    Nothing to see here folks. Just one of the most talented WRs in the NFL being taken under the wing of the GOAT. Everyone should definitely stick with their John Browns/Crabtree/Stills etc.....

    I'm keeping him on my bench unless we start hearing that Gordon will start or will be getting a decent amount of snaps. When the Pats activated Sony Michel this past week, I think he only played about 13-14 plays but got touches on all but 1. It's a little different with a WR obviously.
  5. Ronald Jones 2018 Outlook

    The same organization that watched Barber/Quizz play last year thought they needed to use a very high draft pick on Ronald Jones. Nothing that Barber has done this year has likely changed their minds. But for as long as this team is crushing we won't see Jones or at least, not as a starter. With that said, if the Bucs lose this week and Barber goes for 10/25 and then Barber struggles again against the Bears in week 4, we could see Jones emerge. It's not something I am banking on but it's something many should keep an eye on the next couple of weeks. You generally want to get out of ahead a player like Jones because if you wait for him to be ready and he comes out of the bye looking like the player many thought he would be it could be too late.

    When was the last time he burned anyone? He has been suspended prior to just about every year since his big year. So it's not like anyone has taken him in the first round and then been screwed. Last year he was likely a mid-season FA pickup and did OK wit Kizer. This year, he had a TD week 1 (and probably shouldn't have been in anyone's lineup having missed most of camp and playing in bad weather). He was inactive last week and is now playing with Brady? The only people that have been burned are Browns fans.

    Right, but posters like yourself seem to be confusing his ability vs his availability. If you don't like Gordon because you think he will get suspended again, then I don't blame you. But if you point to his lack of production as a sign that he may not be very good then you are completely mis-evaluating Gordon. Gordon was decent last year (producing about 1k yards if his stats were prorated for an entire season). He scored a TD in week 1 in a bad weather game. Now he is going from Kizer/Taylor to Brady. The reality is that when Gordon is on the field, throughout his career, his performance has either been amazing or decent. The question is what do decent WRs do with Brady vs what do amazing WRs do with Brady. Chris "I've never done anything close to what Gordon has done in the NFL" Hogan was a pretty high draft pick coming into this year. Gordon>>>>>>>>>Hogan.

    I'm not going to say that was a great catch but 95% of receivers are not 6"4. Brandin Cooks, at 5"10, isn't making that play.

    Theoretically, pro athletes shouldn't do anything year round that can risk their careers or hurt their team, yet the consummate professional Andrew Luck almost ruined his career snowboarding.

  11. Trey Burton 2018 Outlook

    Yeah, and I am going to assume that doesn't happen every week.
  12. Chris Carson 2018 Outlook

    The bigger problem is the offensive line and a 1st round pick rookie who will slowly eat into Carson's touches.
  13. Trey Burton 2018 Outlook

    Two games in, I am not complaining about a QB who's head coach lets him throw 34 times in a game they were winning from start to finish. Sure, Burton hasn't had a big game yet, but I think the game script one of these days will be to target Burton 8-10 times and he will put up a 7-100-1. If there is a better option out there go for it, but I don't see much better in my free agent pools.
  14. Trey Burton 2018 Outlook

    Actually, the way the offense is going is a good thing for Burton. Even with a lead they will look to pass first. So if Trubisky can slowly improve over the course of the season I could see Burton's numbers slowly improving. Not quite as productive thus as some had hoped, but it's never good to overreact two weeks in with a tight end that already has a TD and got a running play near the goal line.
  15. Corey Davis 2018 Outlook

    I don't own him, but he is very good. There is a difference between a player not being very good and his QBs not being very good. If you put Davis on the Steelers, he is a beast. With that said, his QB situation isn't going to change any time soon so for fantasy purposes it is tough to start him. I would still hang on to him on the hopes Mariota gets healthy and figures things out.
