  1. No Dez. No Witten. Don't be surprised if Gallup is Dallas' #1 WR by the end of the season.
  2. 2nd in the league in receiving with 1,444 yards... but only 3 TDs?? Something's gotta give. Discuss.
  3. 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.
  4. 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?
  5. Lots of TE-needy teams out there. Seattle, New Orleans jump out as good destinations. Maybe a change of scenery will do him some good. Lions released TE Eric Ebron. The move had to be made today before 4 PM ET if the Lions were going to save his $8 million-plus salary from becoming guaranteed. They tried to trade the enigmatic tight end but were unsuccessful. Ebron will certainly have a market and hasn't yet turned 25. Lions fans have long held a grudge against Ebron after he failed to live up to his No. 10 overall pick draft status in 2014, especially since the Lions passed on LT Taylor Lewan, WR Odell Beckham, and DT Aaron Donald, who were selected consecutively at Nos. 11-13. The Lions now need a tight end.
  6. John Kelly took over for Alvin Kamara at Tennessee last year. He runs hard and invites contact, despite his smaller frame. On the Rams, he will battle incumbent handcuff Malcolm Brown for snaps behind Todd Gurley. Kelly would probably see immediate fantasy relevance if anything were to happen to Gurley. Gotta love that 'Best Comparable' comp too.
  7. It looks like the Rams will let Sammy test the market, and it is probably a good thing for his fantasy value. He never really seemed to click with Goff, even on the new-look, high-powered Rams' 2017 offense. He did stay pretty much healthy for what seemed like the first time in a long time, and on the right offense could be a sneaky good value in 2018. Where would you guys like to see him end up, assuming he's not back in LA?

    Tough to start a guy playing 3rd fiddle over 2 unquestioned #1 targets... I’m starting Josh but my other options aren’t anywhere near that good.
  9. Kenneth Dixon 2018 Outlook

    He’s still listed as on IR on fantasy... you can stash him and see what happens tomorrow without burning a roster spot.
  10. Marlon Mack 2018 Outlook

    Or an 8 team league...
  11. Jared Goff 2018 Outlook

    I’ll be starting Big Ben @ OAK over him.
  12. Kareem Hunt 2018 Outlook

    In footage released by TMZ, Kareem Hunt was shown getting into a physical altercation with a 19-year-old woman at a Cleveland hotel in February. In the video, Hunt was shown arguing and shoving a 19-year-old woman outside his hotel room at 3:22 AM ET. The conflict escalated quickly after that with Hunt lunging at the woman and later kicking her while on the ground. Police took statements but no charges were filed. The footage, which you can see in the link below, is extremely troubling. This is a terrible look for both the Kansas City organization (remember the Chiefs took a major PR hit two years ago when they drafted Tyreek Hill following his domestic violence arrest) and the NFL, particularly in the wake of Rueben Foster's arrest and subsequent waiver claim by Washington. The wheels of the NFL move slowly, but we imagine Hunt will be facing a lengthy suspension once this gets sorted out.
  13. Kareem Hunt 2018 Outlook In February, Chiefs running back Kareem Huntfaced an allegation that he shoved a woman at a Cleveland hotel. Today, TMZ published video of the incident. It’s a video that needs to be watched a couple of times to be fully digested and understood. Hunt (if that’s indeed him) initially pushes the woman with at least one his hands. As he approaches her again, she seems to take a swing at Hunt, angering him. Others pull Hunt away, and the woman tries to push toward Hunt. He’s momentarily out of view, but then explodes back into the shot and shoves a man into the woman. The two are sent sprawling to the floor. The woman seems to be stunned; while she’s gathering herself, Hunt kicks her. Another woman can be seen with her phone out, presumably shooting video of the incident. A man (not Hunt) apparently takes the phone from her. Hunt was never charged. During training camp, both Kareem Hunt and owner Clark Hunt addressed the incident while also downplaying it. Like so many of these situations, however, video changes everything. Now that it’s out there, the Chiefs and/or the NFL will have to address it.

    Probably RB2.
  15. David Johnson 2018 Outlook

    Please Clipboard Jesus, let it be so
  16. Matt Lacosse 2018 Outlook

    You guys are just ignoring the quality of the targets.
  17. Matt Lacosse 2018 Outlook

    Herndon, sure go ahead. I wouldn't drop Brate though.
  18. Matt Lacosse 2018 Outlook

    One of their best WR Cooper Kupp has been placed on IR with a torn ACL, opening up a ton of targets on this offense. Welcome to the tight end position in fantasy football 2018 Won't change according to who? You? k. Sweet, I prefer QUALITY of targets when taking a crap shot on a player. Give me Goff over Keenum every day and twice on Sundays. Don't tell me what to do. Your logic sucks.
  19. Matt Lacosse 2018 Outlook

    Lacosse had 4 targets last week... what is this incoherent rambling
  20. I don’t play yahoo or espn public leagues, and just because those are their “standard” settings, doesn’t mean they make sense. Those type of leagues cater to the lowest common denominator.
  21. Matt Lacosse 2018 Outlook

    You're discounting the possibility that Everett's role could grow based on his recent performances. If Lacosse can get 10 targets in your little hypothetical, why can't Everett get 5-7? The logic is bad.
  22. Ben Roethlisberger 2018 Outlook

    Damn. Still starting Goff over him this week.
  23. David Johnson 2018 Outlook

    Still playing for this year despite DJ as my RB1!
