  1. 2017 RB Rankings

    I'll take a shot at this for a full point PPR. Please take in to consideration that I do my best to disassociate the name from the numbers and tend to put a higher value on things such as volume, system, and how safe they are on a week to week basis. I'll add tags on players for things I like or dislike that may help to explain my ranking. Green = Trending up / Ugly Yellow = Wavering / Red = Trending down / V = Volume / S = System / I = Injury or IC = Injury Concern T1 Le'Veon Bell Leonard Fournette - I T2 Kareem Hunt - S Todd Gurley Melvin Gordon - S Ezekiel Elliot Jordan Howard - V Carlos Hyde - S Christian McCaffrey T3 Devonta Freeman LeSean McCoy - V Jerick McKinnon Lamar Miller - V Doug Martin Mark Ingram DeMarco Murray Adrian Peterson T4 Jay Ajai - V Chris Thompson Duke Johnson Alvin Kamara LeGarrette Blount CJ Anderson - V Buck Allen Ty Montgomery - I/IC Orleans Darkwa T5 Frank Gore - V Ameer Abdullah Marshawn Lynch Derrick Henry Alex Collins Aaron Jones Tevin Coleman James White Tarik Cohen Mike Gillislee T6 Joe Mixon Thomas Rawls - IC Bilal Powell - I Theo Riddick Andre Ellington Wendell Smallwood - I Isaiah Crowell Jonathan Stewart Samaje Perine Latavius Murray Elijah McGuire T7 Rob Kelly - I Matt Forte D'Onta Foreman Shane Vereen Matt Bredia Charcandrick West - I Charles Sims Marlon Mack Wayne Gallman CJ Prosise Terrance West Darren McFadden Alfred Morris T8 Eddie Lacy
  2. John Ross 2017 Season Outlook

    Not sure how credible it is, but I read THIS article earlier which in a nutshell says the consensus between the coaching staff and Ross is that he needs to practice up before he dresses for a game.
  3. Cameron Brate 2017 Season Outlook

    Oh boy, it is tough to walk away from Rudolph. I would try to trade the name with Rudolph if I could. Brate gives a pretty safe floor of around 10 points with the upside of a TD or two where Rudolph seems a bit more boom or bust. I do like Rudolph's match ups a bit more over the next few weeks, but I think I would still roll with Brate for the safer floor.

    Num Num Num Num.
  5. Carlos Hyde 2017 Season Outlook

    Dang, that is a tough one...but hey, we've all been there though! Live and learn! You'll make the right call next time!
  6. Tanner Gentry 2017 Outlook

    Despite my man crush on Kendall Wright, if the playbook opens up in the next couple of weeks, I think Gentry is the guy you want. Good report with Mitch, and he was targeted on the Bears first downfield toss of the year *cringe....okay...I'm okay...* like Rob mentioned above. Definitely can't start him and probably shouldn't roster him unless you have deep benches.
  7. Mitchell Trubisky 2017 Season Outlook

    In terms of his fantasy value for the time being, it is going to heavily rely on his legs if he is usable at some point this year in a super flex or a bye week scenario. Someone above hit the nail on in saying that we can't expect much fantasy value with the ultra conservative play calling. Longest pass of the year going for 29 yards, yeesh. The Bears did make a step in the right direction in getting rid of Deonte Thompson and bringing up Gentry who 1) Can catch unlike Thompson 2) has a good report with Trubisky.
  8. Fake news. Your first post was severely underwhelming. 0/10
  9. Wayne Gallman 2017 Season Outlook

    Is anyone else getting the feeling that this could be a trap game for Gallman? I worry that we see them playing Denver and expect Gallman to be running the ball and catching balls out of the backfield, but they just roll Vereen out there instead.
  10. Cameron Brate 2017 Season Outlook

    He consistently produced last year, and will continue to do so this year. I recall a blurb from the beginning of the year that Howard would be the blocking TE and Brate the pass catching TE this season. Hands? Meh, whatever. He consistently produces, and that is all that matters. Brate was an easy late round grab with top 10 upside with everyone drinking the kool aid on Howard. I think I snagged him in the 13th round as my starter, and Howard went in the 9th or 10th
  11. Tarik Cohen 2017 Outlook

    Whoa now! I would never stoop so low as to call him Tavon Austin 2.0! You are absolutely right though. You must keep in mind though that this is the Chicago Bears, the team that paid Marcus Wheaton 6 million dollars
  12. Tarik Cohen 2017 Outlook

    Looked like Devin Hester. Touches the ball, and starts running every which way except forward trying to make that electric play. Had me cringing so hard
  13. Biggest Busts 2017 Season Outlook

    Wait, people actually thought Crowell was good enough to be a bust?
  14. Matt Breida 2017 Season Outlook

    I think those that invested in Hyde (at least the majority) didn't invest in Carlos Hyde, but Kyle Shannahan. Because of this, I think it would be foolish not to handcuff Hyde due the track record of running backs in this offense, and Hyde's injury history. When waivers rolls around ask yourself, if Carlos Hyde goes down, will this waiver put up as many points as any RB in this system? The answer is usually no, but there are certainly circumstances when you have to go against logic.
