  1. Sterling Shepard 2017 Season Outlook

    One of the best stretch of matchups you can get after the bye. Basically, until week 16 when he could draw Patrick Peterson its pretty good.
  2. Corey Coleman 2017 Season Outlook

    He played in week 2. If you are correct, then he could practice at the completion of week 8 (week from end of tomorrow's game), then return for Week 11. I am pretty confident that IR designated to return requires that you miss 8 weeks. Regardless, I have seen 0 news other than the missed curfew issue. He returned from a similar injury last year after 6 weeks, so no reason to think he couldn't be ready when eligible. I think Kessler keeping the job is his best bet. Also important to remember that Pryor was operating as the WR1 when he returned last year. No such issue this year. Agree with the WR3 assessment.
  3. Corey Coleman 2017 Season Outlook

    Pretty sure IR designated to return requires that you MISS 8 weeks. He played and got injured in week 2. Therefore, I believe he's eligible to return to practice AFTER week 10 and could be eligible to play week 11 (Nov 19).
  4. Ezekiel Elliott 2017 Season Outlook

    NFLPA has requested a ruling by 4pm EST today on the preliminary injunction. If EE gets it, he plays (likely the entire season). If he doesn't, he's 99% to miss the next six games. Regardless, owners should view it as a (little) positive that they can go into this waiver wire period/week with some certainty.
  5. Wendell Smallwood 2017 Season Outlook

    Smallwood is the only player on the roster that can even reasonably attempt to cover Sproles passing down work. This backfield will probably end up being nearly as frustrating as the Pats backfield. In games where the Eagles trail, Smallwood will lead the backfield. In games where the Eagles lead, you'll see the Eagles pound the opposition with Blount. Personnally, I think Clement might be the best runner of the 3, but we'll see. Smallwood is the huge winner here because the Eagles are at least a 2:1 passing:running team (often a lot more) and Smallwood is really the only thing close to a receiving back right now.
  6. Philip Rivers 2017 Season Outlook

    I don't see KC as a reason to bench Rivers unless you have another clear top 10 option. Wentz just put up a 300 yard game against the Chiefs last week. Allen only plays the right side 13% of the time and Peters plays there most of the time, so Rivers should still have his top target open a fair bit. Just so many weapons for LAC.
  7. Andy Dalton 2017 Season Outlook

    This thread will remain locked while we sort out the last couple of pages. We want to make a couple points, one administrative & one substantive. First, when we hide a post, we hide posts that have quoted that post to prevent both confusion and bleed through of whatever was inappropriate in the original hidden post. Second, the reality of the situation is that delving into the rationale for why Kaepernick doesn't have an NFL job will directly lead to a discussion of the politics associated. We have seen that repeatedly over the preseason and early NFL slate. This conversation inevitably devolves into a debate between supporters and detractors that derails every thread where the debate occurs even though the thread isn't built around a discussion of Kaep, but some other player or topic. The Code of Conduct is explicit. No conversations of a political nature. If you want to have those discussions, there are other forums where they are appropriate. RW isn't one of them. If people choose to ignore the CoC, that's their choice, but the Mods have little choice but to add consequences here for those choices. Thanks!
  8. Javorius "Buck" Allen 2017 Season Outlook

    Only thing I can say about Allen is he is a reliable pass catcher. Otherwise, he's a plodder in my eyes. That said, he probably had the best training camp and preseason of any Ravens back, so I expect it looks something like a 60-40 split West:Allen.
  9. Andrew Luck 2017 Outlook

    The Colts are not just going to arbitrarily shut down Luck for the season if they start 0-3. Teams don't pay millions of dollars to sit players. Teams that are eliminated from the playoffs don't sit all their good players. That is exactly how you drive out a fanbase and lose season ticket holders. If Luck has some sort of setback, then sure, they'll be ultra-conservative, but Luck is 8 months into a 6-9 month recovery. There's no reason to suggest this isn't a normal recovery that should happens to fall on the longer range of that timetable.
  10. Younghoe Koo 2017 Season Outlook

    Most people will (rightfully imo) take a watch and see approach, but let's be clear.... the LA Chargers offense and kicking environment is definitely good. Good defense, good offense, warm weather stadiums, etc.
  11. Tevin Coleman 2017 Outlook

    Bolded should be addressed to the Assistant Coach forum. To the rest, I agree that Coleman and Henry are amazing targets as super upside picks that need an injury. Coleman has (had?) more stand alone value, especially in a PPR, but perhaps Tenn takes a big enough step forward in productivity this season to give Henry the same. Both are exceptional though and I agree they are great number 3/4 RBs. I don't think Atlanta will change Freeman/Coleman's utilization. They got to the Super Bowl on the balance. Coleman's issue is TD regression. Had far too few carries inside the 5 to suggest he will match his TD total last year.
  12. Younghoe Koo 2017 Season Outlook

    Definitely not trying to poopoo this discussion, but will simply remind some of you that "sexually-oriented" content is indeed against the CoC. Some of these name jokes are starting to head down the trail where we expect that someone is going to take us off the rails. We're trying to balance a fun forum with charge that this site must also be accommodating to all tastes. Thanks!
  13. Andrew Luck 2017 Outlook

    What do you mean 100%? The Colts aren't going to bring him back until he's physically 100%, so you're suggesting that it's going to take 5-6 weeks for him to get his timing down? Also need to remember that Luck played most of 2015 and all of 2016 with a partial labrum tear, so I'd expect him to be every bit of what he was last season from the first minute he plays and potentially get better over the course of the season as he improves the timing, etc.
