    He is slashing .279 .316 .489 This year at 23 yrs old with a .210 ISO. Look at his career numbers at every level and note he improved every year after stuggling the year prior. Cash and Co know what they have in this guy, he will develop into an above average MLB 3b.

    I agree, to those of us who watch the games its clear he has good stuff. He needs polish and better command. If he matures a bit he's going to be pretty damn good. He's the epitome if an upside SP IMO. Not a sure thing but why not hold a guy like this? He has the kind of upside to put you over the top if he figures it out. Until then he'll be up and down, but 100% still a must start unless you play with a bunch of jokers in a free public league.

    so because he is not #1 at this exact moment means he is not good fantasy wise? I love this place

    Fuzzy logic. Do you really need the difference of MLB pitching and AAA pitching to identify what you're weaknesses are? Sure there is an appreciable difference between AAA and pitchers in the show, but it doesn't make much sense to think that specific difference along would make you better or worse at making adjustments. I think the bigger point also is making adjustments successfully and turning them directly into results at either of those levels is extremely hard to do. I just dove deeper into this guy and he hit .384 .461 .563 in AAA in 2015 with a babip of .434. On other note is if you look at his career numbers, he really struggled in the minors until 2014 that had him sent all the way down to Advanced A league. From that point on he has been raking everywhere. He clearly made a change to his swing about 4 yrs ago when he was 25, and took a few years to impress enough people.

    Jose Bautista was awful and a career minor leaguer until age 29. Edwin Encarnacion was also similar in that he wasn't completely awful in his mid to late 20's, but didnt perform like the player we know today until also age 29. I think the players named in this thread are actually pretty spot on.
  7. Aaron Nola 2018 Outlook

    I think he's fine, they are probably keeping him fresh considering his injury last year. It is concerning though
  8. Brandin Cooks 2017 Season Outlook

    Cherry picking one of the (rare) consistent WR's isn't going to work bud.
  9. Brandin Cooks 2017 Season Outlook

    ^^^^ Except he hasn't been all that inconsistent relative to almost every other WR. This is a funny thread, people are chiming in about thinking they understand the narrative here and they don't. You would be more accurate to say, I knew going into this draft that NFL WR's have up and down games, I knew what I was getting. His game logs look a lot like a normal NFL WR to me. What makes it look worse is high his ceiling compared to a guy like Keenan Allen, who's game logs look similarly up and down, but he didn't spike as high (and likely win you your week)
  10. Todd Gurley 2017 Season Outlook

    I have Gurley and loving every minute of it, but if you think there isn't a lot luck in fantasy you are either lying to yourself, or full of s---. There is a ton of luck involved in this crazy sport, and as much as you want to pat yourself on the back thinking it's all skill, its not. Majority of folks got lucky with Gurley and would have signed up for and locked in1600 total yds and 8 td's at the price they paid for this guy. I don't believe anyone for a second they knew this was coming and again I have the guy on my team. I saw signs but calling complete BS if you think you think for second you aren't lucky.
  11. Brandin Cooks 2017 Season Outlook

    Just in reference to this conversation, I am in all auction leagues so I just need to pay up for them. But your point stands I still need other players and build a solid team but I am very confident in the Pats scoring a ton of points this year, especially against their very weak schedule and competition.
  12. Brandin Cooks 2017 Season Outlook

    There is no way in hell Cooks and Gronk won't be focal points, with Edelman sprinkled in. There is also no RB bellcow here as well, so they will be throwing a lot. ~600 attempts minimum. There is plenty of room for cooks to get 130 + targets and if he does, he's top 5. The more I think about it I may just win bids for Brady/Gronk/Cooks and watch it rain
  13. Brandin Cooks 2017 Season Outlook

    Bill B caters to his personnel, we have seen this so many times over the years. When Moss was traded to them in 07, everyone said the Patriots spread the ball around, don't get too excited. They don't feed one WR. Moss went off for a historical season. The years that the Patriots had no real #1 WR's, they did what's necessary to move the ball and spread the wealth because they had to. Conversely on the ground, when L Maroney and co. was their RB corps, they got creative and no one got more than 10-12 touches a game. At that point the word was that Bill B doesn't use one RB, and play RB roulette blah blah. They had to, they didn't have anyone talented enough. Remember Corey Dlllon? Look at his attempts under Bill B. More recently, enter Blount, who was a workhorse and got most of the touches. Yet, a few years prior everyone was screaming don't mess with Pats RB, you never know what you are going to get. BS, you need to be smart and realize they are an extremely smart organization. Point is, many people seem to have short memories with this stuff and only remember what recently has happened. TLDR: The Patriots know Cooks is the best WR on their team by a wide margin (I agree Edelman is a decent possession WR) and will feed someone when it makes sense and when their personnel supports it. I am not buying for a second that the Patriots will "spread the ball around" with a talent such as Cooks on the field. They know how good he is, and Bill B would not have traded a first rd pick for him. This is an organization that covets draft picks, and has proven countless times it can build through the draft, and know how valuable picks are, especially 1st rounders. Having your blinders on to recency bias when talking about the Pats is not smart. BIll B will feed Cooks and seeing through situations like this is how you win leagues. He won't get 175 targets like A Brown/Julio but I'd bet money Cooks gets 130 targets minimum. Do the math with what you feel his catch % will be, and likely very high YPC and throw in 8-10 td's as a lock and that's what you have here. I'd bet money he gets 135 targets and catches 2/3 of them. That is roughly 85-90 catches, with a YPC around 14 on he low end, 15 on the high. He will fall between 1250 and 1350 yds, 85-90 catches and TD are random but I would say 10. I got him for $32 in an auction draft because he is being undervalued and couldn't be more confident people are sleeping on him.
  14. Keenan Allen 2017 Season Outlook

    Recency bias, I don't blame you its human nature. Games played in the pros. 2013 - 15 2014 - 14 2015 - 8 with a lacerated freaking kidney. 2016 - Torn ACL, that is most likely also a freak injury To the poster 2 posts above, how does it not make sense? When you have one major injury in 4 years that does not make you injury prone. Anyone with common sense would not hold a lacerated kidney against anyone in terms of their durability. Maybe you don't understand or considered how rare that is and how utterly freakish and non predictable that injury is? After the 2014 year going into your 15 drafts, would you have said he was injury prone after playing 2 full years in the NFL without any major issues? Sure, there is risk here and anyone who thinks otherwise is foolish. I am mildly concerned about his health but he'll probably be fine.
  15. Keenan Allen 2017 Season Outlook

    If he's recovered from his knee injury he's top 10. He also had freak injuries which are worse than a reoccurring issue with the same body part. IMO it's a fallacy to call an player this young injury prone with the nature of his injuries.
