  1. Jalen Richard 2018 Outlook

    Agreed but as long time Bucs fan I can say that he had disappointed for years. Don't think he will be as productive as Lynch. He was never good at busting through the line. He needed holes to be made. I see him getting 12 carries 2 targets and Richard getting 6to8 carries and 6 targets a game. And if game flow goes bad they will pass more and Doug well get nothing

    In my league Mostert and Kearse were available. The other guys were rostered. I suppose if you needed a receiver Kearse would be better choice. If you need RB prefer Richard. As for why.... Richard has proven for 3 years he is a pass catcher. He has shown he can run. He is in an offense where he has 3 out of 6 games with 6 or more catches and is in a team struggling on defense playing catch-up. Very much like Theo Riddick. Lynch out means an inept Martin ahead so he will now get more carries too. Only situation he doesn't have a good floor is if riders go up big early then go run heavy after. Even then he will see more carries as Doug is not a20 carry a game back. Mostert has more yards rushing in his last game than in his career before. He is not built as thick as Richard. He has 2 other backs to compete for work. And in last game he wasn't used at all as receiver. He will only be as useful as Richard if Breida goes down. Richard will always have 3rd down and Receiving role no matter what happens so he has a safe floor with upside if he can outperform Doug 2.9ypc Martin.

    As for size Richard is 5'8 205 Doug 5'9 223. If same height there would be a 10 lb difference. Richard is big enough to not just be a pass catcher

    You are assuming Doug is any good. He has been terrible past 2 seasons and hasn't done anything this year to earn more carries. Wouldn't be surprised if Richard gets alot more work once they see how poor man doug is at lead back

    Long time Bucs fan. Martin let me down so many times. He might be useful for 14 carries for 50 yards. Might get a touchdown. In ppr the receptions and 3rd down work go to Richard. I previous years when Washington and was there too he saw 4 to five carries as the COP back. A few games he saw 6 to 9 carries. That was always with a workhorse ahead be it Lynch or Murray. Don't think Doug can carry as big a load as this guys. Think might be a more Freeman Coleman type split with Lynch out. Richard getting 6 to 10 carries and 5 catches a game. Floor of 70 yards. I'll take a floor of12ppr points.

    I would say that Richard is rather a very safe PPR floor. He is averaging 5 receptions a game. Higher if you take away one game where he was virtually unused. I suspect game script will have the team playing from behind quite a lot which would favor Richard being in the lineup receiving an increased share of touches and Target's. While he is small in stature he is built somewhat like Darren Sproles weighing more than 205 lbs at 5 foot 8. Marshawn Lynch missing time would mean that Doug Martin would get majority of Lynch's touches, I suspect Richard will still see on the order of five or six carries and four to five receptions a game. Based on his previous averages in other years that should turn into 60 to 70 total yards with a floor of 12 fantasy points per game. Those are pretty good numbers for very low-cost addition to the roster. He also has yet to score a touchdown but might get more Red Zone work also with Lynch Not There.
  7. Le'Veon Bell 2018 Outlook

    one reason I think he doesn't come back is that if he does and ends up in a timeshare with Connor there might be a real possibility that connor looks like the better back and deflates his value as people think it was the line and receiving weapons that allowed Bell to run wild. Connor has been doing things no other backs have done before 3 out of 6 100 yard 2 TD games Breaking insane number of tackles..... Bell was a glider with great hands but not the fastest or best tackle breaker. I definitely think Pittsburgh uses roster expemption when he reports to punish him. I think we get full Connor at least until week 11 and more if Bell gets traded at the deadline to a team like Phil Green bay...
  8. Tre'Quan Smith 2018 Outlook

    Nobody knows for sure. Don't remember last time New Orleans had such a talented wr2. Stills and Snead both had viable fantasy seasons and Smith is the better talent.
  9. Tre'Quan Smith 2018 Outlook

    Smith is very talented. Would argue he is better than Ridley but went to a smaller school so his draft capital was lower. Has sure speed and athleteism to be a great receiver. He is better than Ginn but doesn't have experience. His first game getting 60% or more sensors he gets big targets. Yes only 3 but game flow had Brees not passing much. I just dropped Sutton for him. Figure better qb and great matchups rest of season especially week 10 and on. He has the bye to be better integrated into the offense. Great stash for last half of season.
  10. Antonio Callaway 2018 Outlook

    Keeping for his upcoming matchups and bye issues
  11. Peyton Barber 2018 Outlook

    Dropped him for Jones. Was a mistake. He looked good. Yes was the Falcons but in a game Bucs were talking he wasn't game scripted out
  12. Ronald Jones 2018 Outlook

    3 possibilities: 1. Offensive line and play calling as well as game script will prevent any Bucs RB. 2. Barber is used better and o line performs better and he becomes the back those drafting him thought. 3. Jones with 5 weeks of regular season to learn after a tough preseason figures things out better and his explosiveness shines and he takes the lead role with Barber as COP and short yardage back. I think where Jones will shine is with 1 or 2 big runs a game. So say he gets 12 to14 carries. He might make 50 yards on 2 of them and 20 yards on the other 10. With Bucs offensive line, this might be the better outcome than Barber getting 3 to 4 YPC but no explosive plays.
  13. James Conner 2018 Outlook

    Also bell coming in out of shape might take a few weeks to be game ready. So I think Connor is a start in game 8 maybe 9. Bell has had many injuries and might get another "injury" like a hammy allowing him to sit collecting a paycheque while not risking his career. Also Steelers have a clause allowing them to not pay him for 2 more weeks after he signs. Basically this situation rhymes with cluster Buck. But there are more scenarios seeing Connor having more fantasy relevant weeks past their bye then not. If you have I think you hold as his value is artificially low when his situation is up in the air.
  14. Royce Freeman 2018 Outlook

    Does the weather favor running him? Freezing temps some snow. Might hurt passing game
  15. NFL Waiver Wire Thread 2018 Week 6

    Don't forget there is Curtis Samuel who just came back and now Olsen. Too many mouths for Moore to do much especially with an inaccurate qb throwing the ball
