  1. Offensive Line Rankings - Pro Football Focus

    The Giants line is simply not that good. Flowers is still starting and is still awful and PFF doesn't think Solder is all that good. He is a very solid LT, but just because you paid a LT elite money, doesn't make him an elite talent. I'm also nervous about a player like Solder leaving the system in New England where he had Brady "audibiling" into the right play against a certain defense..... to Eli Manning. If things break right (Hernandez can do the job as a rookie and Flowers figures it out), I think they can be an average unit. If they get an injury/Flowers implodes for the 3rd time/Hernandez isn't quite ready this unit can be worse than last year.

    I am not very high on Mixon either, but Langford was a 4-5 round talent coming out of college while Mixon was arguably a first round talent that fell because of off the field issues. So people see more upside in him. Of course, when given a chance last year he didn't impress me either but that offense was a mess last year and if it gets straightened out he could be the beneficiary.

    Mariota will top my list. Most people have him ranked in the 18-22 range. Since I never draft/bid on elite QBs, I am likely going to lock up Mariota as my QB1 in a couple of leagues. Edit to note that Mariota was ranked in the top 5-7 by many "experts" last year. I stayed far away from him then, but now he will be a steal.
  4. Amari Cooper or TY Hilton? WHIR!!!

    Hilton....but ONLY if Luck looks great in camp. If there are any red flags regarding his health, I'd go with Cooper. Cooper is a better WR, but is a bit of a head case and while he is the #1, they also have Bryant (assuming he isn't suspended)/Jordy/Cook to feed if Cooper starts dropping passes again.
  5. Keeper Questions

    .5ppr, 10 team, 260 budget. I can keep 3. I think I have 2 no brainers Thielen $6 (obvious keeper) Leveon Bell $72 (top RBs go for 80-100 in my league) My final keeper will come down to: Keenan Allen at $35 (he was a stud last year and now there is no Henry)- Last year Baldwin went for 39 and Antonio Brown went for 67 Josh Gordon $23 Zeke $91 (sounds crazy but he will go for at least that in the auction- Dalvin Cook went for 67 last year)
  6. Nick Senzel- 3B Reds

    Make that 13 for his last 19. 3-5 with a double and 2RBIs last night. Kid is on fire.
  7. Nick Senzel- 3B Reds

    Senzel has 10 hits in his last 14 ABs. Let's hope the mighty Reds can find room for him in that Yankee-esque lineup they trot out every night.

    Many big time hitters come to NY and struggle early on. It's not his stance, it's the pressure. Add in the fact that he generally starts off slowly and this start isn't that awful. Last year he had 30 Hrs in July/August. Are we looking at another 59/132 year? No. But I am guessing something in the 40/110 is realistic and a pretty damn good year.

    The Mets are not a contender this year and have a weak farm system. The chances they would trade away one of their few highly regarded prospects for a run at a WC spot is virtually zero...then again this is the Mets so you never know.

    He's only on pace for 49Hrs over the course of a 162 game season while many expected him to be more of a 70hr a season guy. BUST!

    Sorry rich but fatigue was a pretty easy call here
  12. Alex Reyes 2018 Outlook

    Alex Reyes' first pitch was a 96mph Fastball. His last 3 pitches were 96MPH fastballs. He didn't get pulled in the middle of an inning/at bat. What's more plausible? That he's hurt or was just a little fatigued and the team was being cautious with him?
  13. Alex Reyes 2018 Outlook

    So if he had thrown 2 more pitches in the 2nd it would be more reasonable to assume he was just fatigued by the 4th? If you look at his game logs in the minors, I am going to assume he didn't have any 28 pitch innings in the minors. Pitchers often say that throwing 75 pitches over 7 innings is far easier than throwing 60 pitches over 2. We will know for sure after the game..
  14. Alex Reyes 2018 Outlook

    Yeah, why not? He's coming back from an injury. Struggled in the 2nd and it took more out of him than normal. He breezed through the minors and probably exerted more energy in the 2nd than he did in any 1 inning in the minors. Or he is out for the season......
  15. Alex Reyes 2018 Outlook

    It's concerning, but that doesn't really mean anything at this point. He worked really hard in the 2nd. Walked a couple of guys. Threw a bunch of pitches. Maybe he got a little fatigued
