    PPR, sure. Standard, discussion.

    Personally, I think that’s just a waste of time. #5 on is where the discussion should begin.
  3. Alex Collins 2018 Outlook

    I don’t know about that. I think he’s been electric even in his limited action in Seattle. The knock on him has always been ball security. If he can get that corrected (and he did the 2nd half of last year), I think he can be a steal. I’m not reaching for him, but I’m personally buying at the right ADP (similar guys in his tier).

    Yes. Was going off memory, I knew most were closer to the 10 yard variety rather than inside the 5.

    Come on man, it’s one thing if you don’t like Cook but please don’t spew false information. LV was coming off injury entering the season, he wasn’t hurt. Being hurt means you don’t play. Every player is always “hurt.” There’s a difference. Games 1 to 3 LV had 2,3 and 2 carries. Week 4 after Cook got hurt, LV ended up with 7 carries. Let me guess, all of a sudden he wasn’t hurt. Regardless, he finished with a 3.8 YPC average. Among some of the lines were 15 carries for 1.9avg, 19 carries for 2.1avg , 21 for 3.3, 19 for 2.6. The guy is vastly overrated and mediocre at best. Having said that, sure he’ll take some carries away from Cook. But barring another injury, not enough to keep Cook from being a top 8ish RB. And certainly not enough to give LM stand-alone value.

    It seemed to me that when they were within the 5 yard line, Buck would be in. Outside of 5 yards, Collins was the guy. They wanted the threat of the pass to open up the run rather than the threat of the run to open up the pass. I don’t have all the stats in front of me but just off of memory, it seemed like AC ripped off most of his TD runs from around 10-15 yards out. Felt like most of his TD’s were of the longer variety.

    You neglected to read the rest of my post. Or you did read it but you don’t care. Which is totally cool too.

    I certainly didn’t dismiss him on size alone. I started with his stature but ended my post with decreased efficiency given a larger workload. Now granted we don’t have a big enough sample size, but based on my visual analysis coupled with his stats on higher volume, I’m not crazy about his potential. And certainly not at his ADP. Besides, not all 5’9, 205lb players are built the same or have the same running style. Freeman has a low center of gravity (runs low to the ground) and is a bruiser and tough as nails (much like Kareem Hunt). McKinnon runs upright and relies more on his speed and quickness. Over the course of 16 games, I’m not crazy about that style of running. I think we’re gonna see a lot more of Breida than people expect.

    The best part about these forums is you get injury news, training camp info, and interesting stats almost instantly. I learned a long time ago to form my own opinion doing my own analysis.

    At his ADP, a 5’9 200LB RB? Thanks but no thanks.. Especially since they really like Breida as well. While I realize he’s never truly been given an opportunity to be a near FT/workhorse back, it is concerning that with increased volume his efficiency actually goes down. Interestingly enough, his best games with high volume carries (15 or more) all came against the Bears and Packers, both in 2016 and 2017 for a total of 4 games. I’m not saying I wouldn’t draft him. But certainly not anywhere near his current ADP. Way too much risk and uncertainty and I worry about his efficiency with increased volume.

    ***** fantasy baseball for a second. So happy to see everything checked out fine.

    Which is totally fine and quite prudent to do so. But you can say that about any decent backup who is behind either a player coming off a major injury or one that is injury prone. Lottery ticket in case of injury? Yes. Stand alone value? No.
  13. Latavius Murray 2018 Outlook

    Don’t be silly fellas. Cook was vastly underrated coming out of last year’s draft and had it not been for the injury, he would have been in the discussion for top 5 overall pick this year. If he stays healthy, Cook will be a monster and shoulder most of the load. This won’t be a Freeman/Coleman situation where Murray will have standalone value. He’ll need an injury to have any value in 12 team leagues.

    Not to take anything away from the kid, it was definitely a great play. However, the throw was a balloon, it wasn’t like it was on a line like a rifle which we’ve seen many times when guys get thrown out at 3rd from RF. Now I understand it was a balloon because of his momentum once he gathered himself after the catch (plays at 3B the RF has the momentum after the catch). The runner was so far committed that he was able to get him out at first. Sure it was impressive that he got that ball to 1B on the fly, but I think there’s a number of guys that could make that throw/play. Again, not taking anything away from him. Great, great play. Personally, I think the play Engel of the Sox made yesterday to rob, I believe, Alonso, was even more impressive.
