  1. 2018 Rookie Draft Discussion

    I like the first 3 picks. I would have probably gone Gallup at 2.01, then Gesicki, but since Gallup fell to you anyway, no harm done. I think you'll end up being thrilled Hines was sniped. Gallup is the way better pick, IMO. Watson is definitely a reach at 3.04, but if he's your guy, more power to you. Did you consider anyone else in that spot?

    Not sure if you're joking. But I have one word for you: spoonerism. As for Green, he's the guy for now... but I'd be shocked if they don't sign or trade for someone.

    I don't even know if you believe what you're posting anymore.....

    So what's plan B. Grandpa Gates? A trade? If Eifert is actually healthy, could they get Kroft from the Bengals? What other TEs could be available?

    Dude c'mon. Howard had FIVE drops last season. On 32 targets. The only running back in the whole league with more drops was Hyde. He had 6. On 88 targets! Howard's pass catching skills are absolutely atrocious. If it isn't a simple dump off pass, he can't catch it. This is a guy who had offseason eye surgery to improve his ability to catch the football. It didn't help.
  6. Melvin Gordon 2018 Season Outlook

    You could very well be right, but I think the door is wide open for another back to step up. Ekeler did well with his opportunities last season and, 7th rounder or not, Jackson is a good running back. If one of these guys steps up in camp, there's a point where the coaching staff may try something new. When same old, same old is a sub 4.0 ypc, a change might be appealing.
  7. Melvin Gordon 2018 Season Outlook

    With Ekeler and now Jackson there, I have a strong sense that Gordon is going to drop off this season. Volume is the only thing that has put him into the "elite" Conversation. If some of his usage goes to the other two guys, it might not go well for Gordon owners. We've also seen in the past that the Chargers are willing to use COP backs, like Woodhead, in the red zone. If Ekeler or Jackson becomes fantasy relevant, it could easily be a much different amount of production from MG this year.

    There were 114 RB targets for KC last season. Can we call that "quite a few"? Cohen should get the overwhelming majority of those targets for Chicago. Howard is incompetent as a receiver, and Cunningham isn't even of Charc West's level.

    Going to have to agree to strongly disagree. Can't see Cohen not being an RB2 in PPR unless he gets hurt. Time will tell.

    Fair. I don't necessarily think there's a wrong answer, I just think it's worth considering.
  11. Tarik Cohen 2018 Season Outlook

    That logic doesn't work though. This isn't the same team as last year. If they had brought back all the same pieces, but were planning to throw the ball more, then I'd see your point. However, nothing from what the Bears did last season is relevant. This team may as well not be called the Bears. In other words, it makes no sense to base Cohen's projections on any Bears stats from 2017. I could just as easily point out the 93 targets that Duke Johnson got, or the 110 that Alvin Kamara got, or the 121 that CMC got, and use that as the basis for my Cohen projections. Keep in mind that Pace comes from New Orleans. His dream for this offense was to mirror what the Saints did at their peak. There's no reason to believe that, if used in the Sproles role, Cohen can't be a high end PPR RB2, if not better. It's not a lock, but nothing in fantasy is a lock. I don't think the hype is undeserved though.
  12. 2018 Rookie Draft Discussion

    Probably not a popular opinion, but seeing as your top 6 could very well be the top 6 drafted, I'd consider Kerryon at 7. He's exactly what the Lions have been missing as a workhorse back. He's not going to be David Johnson, but neither is Chubb, and Chubb has a higher chance to bust, IMO.
  13. Tarik Cohen 2018 Season Outlook

    Fair enough. I'm expecting Cohen to earn a Sproles/Woodhead like pass catching role... Time will tell.
  14. Tarik Cohen 2018 Season Outlook

    87 carries last season. 53 catches last season. You don't think his numbers go up at all? I'm only predicting 13 more carries and 7 more receptions for the whole season. If not, do you expect virtually the same numbers, or do you think his volume will go down?
  15. Tarik Cohen 2018 Season Outlook

    Okay, let me ask you this. What would you say to these projections for Cohen? 100 carries: 400-500 rushing yards. 60 receptions. 500-600 receiving yards. 6-8 total TDs (rushing, receiving and return game.)
