  1. Overvalued/Undervalued 2018

    It's more common than you think. I had a pro league draft this morning. 3 owners went RB/RB/RB and another owner went RB/WR/RB/RB.
  2. Overvalued/Undervalued 2018

    In general, I find this only to be true with autodrafters, especially since yahoo pro leagues now have a flex position.

    Yes, but some of that usage has to be attributed to Burkhead's injuries. In fact, 6 of Lewis's 9 TDs came in games where Burkhead was injured.

    Even if that's how you want to look at it (and I personally see no merit in it), they still aren't ranked right next to each other. According to FFC, Keenan Allen, AJ Green, Mike Evans, Doug Baldwin, and Tyreek Hill are drafted after Davante Adams and before Josh Gordon.

    FantasyFootballCalculator has Davante Adams at 2.07, Josh Gordon at 3.06, Hilton at 3.09, and Diggs at 4.02. A full round of separation isn't "right next to each other". Granted, those are aggregated from mock drafts, but I've had seven Yahoo pro league drafts. Adams has always been drafted in the 2nd/3rd round. Gordon ranges from rounds 4-6. Hilton/Diggs have both been taken in the 4th and 5th rounds. Also, I've been drafting RB/RB so I haven't been taking Adams in the 2nd round.

    With Rodgers, you'd have to agree that the Packers offense improves tremendously than with Hundley, right? So at the very least, the Packers would have longer drives and increased TD potential right? Seems like that would benefit their #1 WR.... Again, regarding Adams' concussions, you're exaggerating. What's led you to believe that Adams could be done for the season if he gets another concussion? He missed 1 game from Trevathan's hit. You're not approaching this with an open mind. You believe what you believe, and you'll ignore any logical argument to the contrary. The Packers just signed him to a big contract. Why would they do that if Adams' concussion risk were as large as you think it is? For the past 2 seasons, Diggs has had groin issues, and those are significantly worse than concussions. With concussions, once a player returns to the field, he's symptom free. On the other hand, pulled muscles, unless allowed to heal fully, will linger and are prone to re-aggravation.

    You should care about the consensus opinion b/c you're the one who brought it up. You said all those guys were ranked next to each other. I asked where you saw those rankings, and now you suddenly don't care? Mayfield hasn't played a single NFL snap and is clearly behind Taylor on the depth chart. However, since he was the #1 overall pick, Cleveland will be forced to start him at some point. Knowing this, you're still confident that he'll be a major upgrade from all the QB's Josh Gordon has had? Why do you think Gordon benefits more than Jarvis Landry? Relative to your arguments against Adams, your arguments for Diggs/Hilton are funny. For Diggs, you argue that an above average QB plus having competition (Thielen, Cook, Rudolph) makes the offense better and creates more scoring opportunities. For Hilton, you argue that Luck's return (from missing over an entire season) plus the lack of competition make Hilton a target monster. Yet Adams, who is the clear #1 WR for the best QB in the league and has less competition for targets than Diggs, is somehow beneath these guys? Why doesn't the Packers overall superior offense raise Adams over Hilton? Why doesn't Adams increased role in the Packers offense raise him over Diggs? Also, it sure sounds like you're ignoring Diggs' injury concern. Diggs injury risk is significantly higher than Adams'.

    Which ranking site has all those guys ranked right next to each other? Plenty of players have had seasons better than Adams' best season, but why is that relevant? Adams is projected to have a break-out season. No one is drafting Adams in the late 2nd/early 3rd based entirely on what he's done. It's what they expect he WILL do. Let's look at Josh Gordon. He has a brand new veteran QB (Tyrod Taylor), and his team just spent the #1 overall pick on Baker Mayfield. That means at some point this season, after Cleveland is out of playoff contention, Mayfield will supplant Taylor. In other words, Gordon will have to acclimate to 2 new quarterbacks. Plus, Cleveland spent its 2nd round pick on a RB, signed Carlos Hyde, and extended Duke Johnson. It's safe to say they plan on running more. And if those aren't bad enough for Gordon's outlook, Cleveland also signed Jarvis Landry to a 5 year, $75mm contract. Gordon has all this working against him, and you still have him ranked over Davante Adams? Laughable. Let's look at Diggs. First of all, as much as you crap on Adams about "injuries", how can you ignore Diggs'? He's far more injury prone, and his injuries tend to linger. Secondly, he has a brand new QB in Kirk Cousins. However good you think Cousins is, there's something to be said about the rapport a QB/WR develop after playing together for years. Thirdly, there are plenty of mouths to feed in Minnesota. Dalvin Cook, Adam Thielen, and Kyle Rudolph are all genuine threats to Diggs' production. Also, Cook, Diggs, and Thielen are all being drafted in the top 4 rounds. At least one of them will underperform relative to their cost. Compared to Diggs, Adams has both a higher floor and higher upside. Hilton depends on Andrew Luck. Are you expecting Luck to regain elite form? In the Yahoo Pro Leagues I've done so far, he's been drafted between the 9th-11th rounds. At this point, it's laughable to have Hilton over Adams.

    Evans and Baldwin are debatable. Gordon, Diggs, and Hilton are laughable.
  10. Davante Adams 2018 Season Outlook

    Do you mean game 6? If you're talking about the Packers/Vikings game where Rodgers got hurt, that should clearly be ignored.
  11. Davante Adams 2018 Season Outlook

    You're trolling me, right?
  12. Davante Adams 2018 Season Outlook

    My point is that guys like Reed/Fiedorowicz have gotten concussed and missed extended periods of time. Adams hasn't. So it's premature for RMJ to say that Adams' next concussion could be career ending. Also, Reed played 6 games last season. It's hard to get concussed when you're not on the field.
  13. Davante Adams 2018 Season Outlook

    Because it matters a lot. Based on what we know right now, there's a huge difference between guys like Davante Adams and guys like Jordan Reed and CJ Fiedorowicz.
  14. Davante Adams 2018 Season Outlook

    Adams had 2 concussions last year. He didn't miss any time after the first concussion (week 4), and his second concussion came in week 15 when Rodgers was injured and the Packers were out of playoff contention. Adams missed weeks 16 and 17, but in my uninformed opinion, that probably had more to do with the season being over as opposed to lingering concussion symptoms, and I'm basing that on the big contract Adams subsequently signed. "Career ending" seems like an extreme exaggeration. Like I said before, we aren't talking about Jordan Reed.

    I wouldn't get too caught up in this "top 10 money" concept. A lot of RB studs are still on their rookie contracts. And for what it's worth, Lewis is making $4.312mm this year. Gio Bernard is making $4.25mm.
