  1. Smokin' Joe Mixon had an up-and-down rookie season where he showed flashes of his elite patience and elusiveness but was held back by an ineffective offense and an underwhelming offensive line. Unfortunately, Marvin Lewis was brought back to continue his tenure of mediocrity. I think Mixon will be a 1st round pick in 2019 and is one of the most talented RBs in the NFL today. Change my mind.
  2. Rudolph the redzone reindeer doesn't get quite the hype that the Gronk/Kelce/Ertz' of the world get but he's as good a bet as anyone else to finish as a top-5 TE this season. Scored 8 TDs last year with Bradford/Keenum; now has TE-friendly, massive upgrade Kirk Cousins slinging the rock. QB Kirk Cousins recently said this regarding Rudolph: "Boy, he’s a friendly target, It’s like throwing into a mattress." Minnesota's new OC is John DeFilippo, who was OC of the Browns in 2015 for Gary Barnidge's leap from zero to fantasy hero finishing as the TE3; and then OC of the Eagles for 2016-17 when Ertz finished as TE8 and TE3 respectively. ADP of 71 seems reasonable for a guy that project to be an every-week producer at TE.

    Hopefully it’s literally anywhere else
  4. Tre'Quan Smith 2018 Outlook

    Potentially the Saints’ worst-scripted game of the season. Lot’s of upside here.
  5. Tre'Quan Smith 2018 Outlook

    Definitely encouraging despite the lack of production. Saints will be im shoot outs more often than they’re in close gritty games. TQS 📈
  6. Jared Goff 2018 Outlook

    He’ll probably go off against GB once everyone drops him. Eventually teams are going to sell out to stop Gurley and make Goff beat them... right?
  7. John Brown 2018 Outlook

    Smokey is back. Best late round WR pick going this year.
  8. Corey Clement 2018 Outlook

    Gonna be benching at Jacskonville next week. Hopefully he can take control of this backfield. Clement didn’t do much, but Smallwood and Adams were pretty bad. Hopefully the loss makes the coach take a long look at the situation and it works out in CC’s favor. I still believe he’s the most talented RB in that backfield.
  9. No Dez. No Witten. Don't be surprised if Gallup is Dallas' #1 WR by the end of the season.
  10. Game Day Weather 2018

    I just checked the forecast and it’s only calling for 25 kph with 43 kph gusts... so 15 mph winds with 27 mph gusts.
  11. Game Day Weather 2018

    Don’t live in either city but have been following the weather reports. NYC looks like pretty significant gusts but Philly doesn’t look too bad.
  12. Duke Johnson 2018 Outlook

    Duke’s arrow was already pointing up before the Hyde trade... with all the WR injuries (and trades) the Browns will need to get him involved more in the passing game such as out of the slot, more wheel routes, etc. The passing game will run through Landry, Njoku and the Duke...

    Should we downgrade all the kickers in these games?
  14. Green Bay Packers 2018 running back production: It's tough to sort through the mess but it appears that early fantasy drafters expect Jones to lead this backfield as his ADP has jumped almost 4 rounds since February, while Williams and Montgomery have both free-falled in June: Generally in these situations where there's no clear workhorse RB on a good offense, I like to go for the cheapest option. Aaron Jones has me re-thinking this as he could end up being a significant value where he's getting drafted and, in my opinion has the best chance of being a true workhorse RB of the three. Who ya got?
  15. Now 32 years old, Beastmode returns as the starting RB for John Gruden's throwback Raiders. In 2017 after a 1 year hiatus, he rushed for 891 yards at a 4.3 YPC, scored 7 TDs and tacked on 20 catches for 151 yards for good measure. His main competition is Doug Martin, who rushed for 2.9 YPC the last 2 seasons and hasn't moved the needle since 2015. JAGs DeAndre Washington and Jalen Richard linger. Beastmode is being drafted at the end of round 5/beginning of round 6 in standard leagues, after rookies Royce Freeman and Ronald Jones. If Gruden really does throw it back to the '90s this season, could Marshawn's fantasy owners Taste the Rainbow™?
  16. Carlos Hyde 2018 Outlook

    Marrone said he had a "chance" to play Week 7 against Houston...
  17. Carlos Hyde 2018 Outlook

    Probably behind Yeldon as Yeldon's been solid, knows the playbook, familiarity with the coaches, etc. Fournette is supposed to be back after the bye week.
  18. Nick Chubb 2018 Outlook

    Probably going to be a RBBC with Duke Johnson. Chubb on early downs, Duke on 3rd/passing downs.
  19. Duke Johnson 2018 Outlook

    Chubb on early downs, Duke on 3rd down/passing downs is my (probably premature) guess...
  20. Carlos Hyde 2018 Outlook

    5th rounder... lol.
  21. Duke Johnson 2018 Outlook

    Definitely a huge boost for Duke's value...
  22. Mike McCoy 2018 Outlook

    Dude... he got fired in November last year.
  23. John Brown 2018 Outlook

    From Evan Silva's matchups column: The Saints have allowed the league’s fifth-most 20-plus-yard completions per game (4.2), boding well for Brown to rebound from last week’s three-target clunker. Baltimore’s 21-0 demolition of Tennessee reduced Flacco’s need to target Brown downfield. This game should be more competitive. I'm not really concerned. The Saints' secondary has been giving up big plays downfield all season.
  24. David Johnson 2018 Outlook

    Leftwich could have been screaming for change in the offensive meetings, we’d have no idea. McCoy could have just pulled rank and basically ignored Leftwich’s thoughts or opinions if he wanted to. We’ll find out next Sunday.
