  1. Lamar Jackson 2018 Outlook

    Well I've 180'ed and picked him up for week 12 potential alone since Mahomes is on bye.
  2. Lamar Jackson 2018 Outlook

    Disclaimer to my post above: I am about to be 2-7 despite drafting Mahomes, Julio, and Beckham, so I obviously suck at this.
  3. Lamar Jackson 2018 Outlook

    That's a tough one. When I saw his college tape I was wowed. But at this level, he just can't seem to outrun people like he did. There was one play in preseason that sticks in my mind. He dropped back and was chased out of the pocket. He must've run backward 20 yards and couldn't shake the huge linemen following him. Finally he threw it out of bounds and had a look on his face like, damn, these guys are fast. He throws an ugly ball too that I hope can be cleaned up. He's actually a pocket passer with running ability so comp might be Pat Mahomes Ultra Lite. Only in style, not saying at all that he's anywhere near as good. But running is not his first choice. Mayfield might be a good comp. I haven't seen Rosen at all. I would hope he's better than Mariota and Bortles.

    Yeah, I might have been wrong on this in an earlier post. There are rumblings of Harbs getting s-canned during the bye which I didn't see coming at all. If he does, I guess all bets are off on Jackson v Flacco for the rest of the year. Even if LJ gets the gig though, he still has a suspect and beat up O Line and questionable weapons. But who knows, guys have done more with less.

    Maybe not, just trying give the local buzz. Take it for what it's worth. By the way, you do realize the 106 passer rating is based on 11 career pass attempts?
  6. Lamar Jackson 2018 Outlook

    Ravens fan here. There is no chance, zero, that LJ gets any more snaps than he already has unless Flacco gets hurt, and even then, RG3 gets first dibs on the job. Flacco has actually been decent this year until the Carolina game. Decent in a real sense, not a fantasy sense. Harbs is fighting for his job, no way he rolls a rookie out there with his future on the line. Dynasty league? Sure, go for it. Redraft? Ain't happening.

    Where mediocre running backs come to die. Oh joy.
  8. Doug Baldwin 2018 Outlook

    In a 10 team ppr with 18 roster spots. Baldwin was dropped Thursday and I picked him up Friday for the minimum and put in the only claim. So based on my league, there is very little buzz about him. No, you all can't play in my league so let's nip that right in the bud. I'm not in love with him but for a buck and a roster spot, let's see what happens. I am choosing to drop Dez tomorrow over Baldwin for a kicker though.
  9. Joe Mixon 2018 Outlook

    I am a salty Ravens fan, can't deny that. How many receptions does Mixon have this year? 6? If you're happy with your RB1 getting an average of 3 catches per game, then go ahead and fire him up! There are touches and then there are quality touches. Not really sure how injured he was either. He looked pretty dynamic each time he came back in the game. That doesn't leave you to wonder what could've been? I stand by my analysis.
  10. Joe Mixon 2018 Outlook

    Suffered through Mixon last year and watching the game last night only reinforced that he will never be a RB1 as long as Marvin is attempting to coach the Bengals. No doubt Mixon is uber talented, but Marvin is just the worse when it comes to feeding a bell cow running back. Add to the fact that Cincy has a ton of offensive weapons through the air and I just don't see them ever being a team that feeds a running back enough for the guy to consistently put up good numbers.

    Somewhere Kevin Smith is smiling....
  12. John Brown 2018 Outlook

    Ravens fan here. We're excited about Brown but I think the brakes need to be pumped a bit. He has the sickle cell trait and as a 2016 espn article quoted, "According to the CDC's website, those with sickle-cell trait are "more likely" to experience muscle breakdown when doing "intense exercise" than those who don't have the trait." So with that in mind, will he last the whole year? Likely not. He's been dynamic for sure and who was it, Peter King maybe, who said of the 20 camps he visited this summer, John Brown was the single most impressive player he saw. Probably can't go wrong as a late round flier, but I wouldn't pencil him in just yet as your wr3 for the year.
  13. Alex Collins 2018 Outlook

    I may have been wrong in a previous post. Dixon looked anything but fat and slow. Definitely had some hop to his game last night! I still think Collins is The Man, but it might be a little more of a timeshare than I thought.
  14. Alex Collins 2018 Outlook

    Disclaimer: I bought heavily into Forsette a couple of years ago after a good year and got smoked. That said, I still put Collins ahead of Howard, Ajayi, Henry, Miller and those types. He will be the primary back, that is unquestioned. The offense will be better and Flacco, while putrid for the past 3 years, is healthier than he's been and has some weapons at wr. I think Collins is a sneaky good pick in the 30s or 40s.
  15. Alex Collins 2018 Outlook

    Ravens fan here, so maybe some insight: Dixon probably will not make the team as he always is dinged up and looks slow and sloppy in camp. Allen will probably still take alot of the RZ opps at least from inside the 5. He's more of a bruiser than Collins is. Of more significance though, Flacco said this week he'd like to get the ball more to Collins and specifically used the word "checkdown". Locally, he's known as Checkdown Joe so that could mean a bunch of value for PPR. I like Collins and would possibly take him at the 3/4 turn. I think he's more talented than people give him credit for. YouTube that run he made against Cincy in the season finale last year. One play does not a player make, but that was one helluva play!
