  1. Are you suggesting that he's either Blount 2.0+ or McCoy is ready to truly go off a cliff?
  2. I don't think this Mixon business is as negligible as some of you seem to think. Obviously landing spot is everything, especially for RBs. But no matter how talented someone is, if he slides, then he is more likely to get scooped up by a team that already has a strong RB1 and then it's welcome to ChristineMichaelsville.
  3. Profootballtalk's Mike Florio passes along "palpable buzz" that Oklahoma RB Joe Mixon "could linger much longer than expected" in the NFL draft. Per Florio, "multiple league sources who have investigated the situation believe that Mixon may be waiting beyond round two or three." Another source "suggested" to Florio that "Mixon possibly won't be drafted at all." analyst and longtime league insider Gil Brandt recently ranked this year's top-150 draft prospects, and Mixon wasn't included. The draftnik community has seemed convinced Mixon will be drafted early in the second round. Shots fired.
  4. sounds like a lot of guys that gain weight from... ...being a lazy, stoned, maybe drunk now that he can't get stoned...POS. "Hey I know. I still look muscular(in a TE sort of way)...I know just how to spin this..." 40 time goes in the toilet. Career goes in the toilet. Sorry to be negative.
  5. Where are the Jets fans? They seem to be running up the white flag on another season already.
  6. Any chance they fix their line by the summer? There's gonna be a lot of fatty fall down jokes in the rant thread if they don't.
  7. This is blasphemy. You're only allowed to overhype Giant Beetlejuice in these parts.
  9. This is BS. I hereby claim a new Patriots scandal: BiggerBrainGate
  10. Here is what I remember: Moss and Welker were both viable FF receivers at the same time, and either consistent or totally off the charts historically awesome. Exit Moss, enter Gronk. During that era, Gronk and Welker were great, with Hernandez flashing as a TE1 in their shadow, but had he been named a WR(let's face it, his real position), he would have been a bye week fill in. Exit Welker, enter Gronk's nonstop injury woes. During that(this era), it's Edelman and Gronk when healthy, and now the floodgates open up to all sorts of handsome white dudes. There is no antecedent here that really matters, because it's a shifting sand. If Gronk's injury woes continue, Cooks may be the jackpot people seem to think he is going to be. But if we are looking at Gronk, Edelman, Cooks, and the rest of em soaking up targets, then: A. Yes Cooks will get his, and in some games he will destroy your opponent. but B. He will have some very quiet games too. which means C. We are back to what he was in NO and D. Belichick will simply NOT put up with his bitching and E. If winning doesn't cure Cooks of his bitchiness, then F. He will be sent to pasture. so G. As I have said in other posts, I am a Cooks owner in a dynasty league and am very excited, but H. His trade value > What I believe his actual value might be even if I. Brady and he have ANY chemistry and J. Cooks isn't an Ochocinco-like box of rocks who can't learn the offense. so K. Pump the brakes is all I'm saying because there are TOO MANY question marks to spend big. Unless of course you're in my dynasty league.
  11. GD idiot
  12. This Moss vs. Cooks discussion has really derailed the conversation. It reminds me of Superman vs. Mighty Mouse. Among Evan Silva's fantasy losers: "All the Patriots’ pass catchers – Already one of the NFL’s most volatile week-to-week offenses because their approach is game-plan and opponent-specific, New England’s target distribution is going to be murkier than ever in 2017. In Rob Gronkowski, Julian Edelman, Brandin Cooks, Chris Hogan, Malcolm Mitchell, James White, Dion Lewis, and Dwayne Allen, the Patriots have eight different players capable of making weekly pass-catching impacts. It’s great in real life, and likely to cause headaches in fantasy." Say what you want about Belichick's crush on Cooks. He has a bigger crush on winning games by baffling opponents as to where and how he's going to strike next. I own Cooks in a dynasty and I am excited to have him...but the biggest value of all will come in a trade some time in August.
  13. Exactly. He's a sharp weapon. One of many. Bloated value screams sell.
  14. That dynasty trade value tho. Complete the following equation: Cooks + --------- = Zeke, DJ, or Bell
  15. I just took over a limping dynasty that had Cooks and Snead pitifully in the same starting lineup. And after today, two arrows pointing up. Csb: I took the jam out of your donut. I did. I drank your milkshake too.
