  1. His combine was the ultimate killer. I mean Matt Asiata has a better agility score, really Dalvin? This was an all time worst combine showing. Solid back who will likely see a lot of work if he goes in the first round of the real draft. I don't think he is Mixon or McCaffrey.
  2. Overrated IMO. Anyways, he will go in the top 3 rounds of fantasy drafts if he is drafted in the 1st round real life which is almost a lock. Not a zero RB target, that'd be Joe Mixon if he falls to the late rounds and becomes a forgotten man. He'll be locked into a workhorse role and is a solid player. Not extremely excited about his potential but I think he should be able to return 3rd round value if that is where he ends up, just have a feeling it will be more like fringe 1st. P.S. just wait a month and make his pro thread. It will likely get more activity then anyways, this is kind of a dead period.
  3. No problem. If that is the case, there have to be a handful of "trade victims" as well. Overall, just try to see where you can maximize your players trade value. (i.e. trade latavius to mckinnon owner, approach weak QB team about Cam, try to find White/Shepard believers and package late picks, if anyone loves Washington you might want to flip him in case the team signs Lynch or drafts Joe Mixon, McCaffrey, etc.) Good luck!
  4. If you draft Davis or a top RB you have a shot, especially if someone gives you something good for Cam or if you flip shepard + a 2nd for a starter.
  5. It depends on where he goes. I would feel really good about his support system on a team like Dallas who essentially babysat Dez.
  6. It makes sense of putting a good product on the field to contend now but I'm not sure the Browns are doing that. They are essentially going to treat 2017 as another trial year IMO. You can't go too far without a QB.
  7. Stafford/Newton/Crowell/Matthews are a solid core and relatively undervalued players. I rarely use draft picks to be honest but I sometimes enter the offseason with 3 or more. The closer to draft day, the more people pay for picks. They are just trade chips to me most of the time because the hit rate is so low. Particularly 2nd and 3rd rounds picks which are nearly a guarantee to be misses from my experience. I usually trade 2nds and 3rds years in advance of their respective drafts though. People seem to pay much more for a mediocre player and a 2nd than you may think. I think this team is much closer than you may think. What are the starting requirements? What draft picks do you have this year? I used to encourage tanking but now I'm mostly lean towards the other extreme, always contend.
  8. I would like that, yes but I don't think the Browns would do it. They are trying to allocate good cheap talent in the 2nd and 3rd rounds, not give big money to the Rams castaways.
  9. Newton is a great passer in terms of fantasy numbers. The guy hates check downs. It's his receiving group that kills his value IMO. They invested so much in their receivers and they are some of the worst in the league. Very frustrating and unlikely to change until Benjamin's contract expires. That being said, I'm a firm believer in never selling guys low just because you have depth at that position. Get market value for him and then sell, you aren't getting it from this owner. In a 40 man league with I'm guessing over 12 teams (?) , Newton should have plenty of buyers. You could wait until the season though for an injury or for Cam to go off.
  10. Kelley may not have an outlook in one month. Any back drafted in any round could probably do Kelley's job better than he does. Props for being a fantasy folk hero for a stretch in 2016 but it's over.
  11. The Cleveland Plain Dealer reports "it’s doubtful" the Browns give suspended WR Josh Gordon another chance. It falls in line with coach Hue Jackson's stance on Gordon. The Browns are expected to shop Gordon if he gets reinstated, but could ultimately release him. Gordon’s status should be known before OTAs. Sad but I've come to terms with this. There really isn't much point to keeping Gordon around when you're not really trying to compete in 2017 and he's a free agent in 2018. They won't dish out the money to an off the field risk IMO. I want to thank Josh for being the most entertaining and arguably best player since the team came back. As a Josh fantasy owner, however, I'm very excited for his future outlook. He is going to take a 1 year deal on a team with a QB as he won't find a multiyear deal with much guaranteed cash yet. Very mixed emotions. He was truly one of the best, if not the best, at his position when on the field and the Browns have never had a skill player like that in the new era.
  12. Josh in New Orleans? He'd probably have a 400 yard game followed by a 8 year ban.
  13. Hill is a gadget player similar to CPatt. I don't think Fuller is a good player, still young but I'm not seeing any reason to believe he'll be fantasy relevant. I agree on Cobb, he's buried but tied to an elite QB. After the draft, I think Brate will be buried and tied to a non elite QB. He was already the biggest loser of the DJax signing. I think Enunwa has great physical talent and has been good when the QB play was there. I think the Jets draft a QB in the first round this year. The team definitely looks like a rebuild project. It really sucks because a savvy owner would have sold high on Shepard, Rawls, and Murray long ago but the previous owner didn't and you inherited the scraps. Nonetheless, I've seen worse teams rebuilt into contenders, good luck. I'd still try to sell Murray because he is set up for failure in Minnesota, not to mention he has never been that great. Unfortunately, it might be too late for Rawls and Shepard. Their value really bit the dust after free agency.
  14. A pile of crap for Cam Newton? No thanks. The only way I move Newton there is for Enunwa, a QB, and a high 1st.
  15. Oh man, knowing what we know today you gotta go with Allen over Bryant. I wouldn't make that trade for Howard or Ajayi. I'd much rather keep Allen. How's the QB market looking? I think there are a few good ones in this upcoming rookie class who can post Wentz like fantasy numbers.
  16. A little addition to your draft weekend drama: According to ESPN's Dan Graziano, Josh Gordon is expected to hear back from the league about his reinstatement application by late April or early May. Gordon applied for reinstatement on March 1 and should learn his fate around the same time as the NFL Draft. Substance abuse issues have kept Gordon off the field since 2014. Browns coach Hue Jackson has washed his hands of Gordon, making it unlikely he'll be back with Cleveland even if he's reinstated. Gordon turns 26 in April.
  17. Doctson & Reed getting hurt is less fat fetched than you think. Brian Quick is a great end of the bench stash because you will not be able to get him off the wire once injuries hit unless you plan on sucking and being at the top in the waiver priority.
  18. Good, not great landing spot. I think he will provide WR3 value this year.
  19. Haha, I don't mind the Bengals and don't hate the Ravens as much as you think because part of my family are Ravens fans. I absolutely hate everything Pennsylvania though and West Virginia. The one thing that bums me out are the Lynch reports. I really want the Raiders to draft one of the top backs. That is close to an Elliot/Henry OL and it is an even better overall offense. Carr is just as good as Mariota and Prescott and the Raiders have way better WRs. I hope the Elliot draft doesn't have a ripple effect in the real draft. It is stupid to take an RB that early, especially in a deep class.
  20. I'd take a number at or around 10. If he can double last year's total, that will do.
  21. I agree. Anyone looking at this class as equivalent to last year is insane. Joe Mixon, had he just put his hands in his pockets and walked out that night, would be this year's Elliot. Corey Davis is the closest to a sure thing that there is in this class but even he comes from a small school. He absolutely killed it there but there is a 5% doubt there along with the fact that he hasn't tested yet. This isn't a Gurley/Gordon, Elliot/Henry, Watkins/Evans class. I'd compare this class more to the Leveon Bell class actually. Too bad everyone was touting Lacy then. I'm seeing it now though, Fournette and Cook have bust potential. If you put McCaffrey and Mixon in the correct situations, they will not bust IMO. That's why I think the real value may be in the 1.04 or 1.05.
  22. I think it is too late to trade for rookie picks, the price is getting ridiculous. The combine also sucked, Cook and Fournette ruined their stock for me. Also, the Browns will have a way better OL than the Jags, Panthers, or Skins. They are close to returning to elite form. Crowell behind the Browns OL and Henry (a much more talented version of Fournette) behind the Titans OL is all you'll need IMO. I would definitely keep Cooks and Robinson. Cooper has a hefty price in dynasty leagues and I wouldn't flip him for anything worse than a top 8 back. The only thing you could try is Moncrief for a pick in the 1.01-1.04 range. Good luck.
  23. Good player, great situation. If he can't get double digit TDs this year, it really tells me something about his skill set.
  24. I think Engram has a great chance to contribute right away if he lands in the ideal situation which I assumed with all players for my predraft rankings. He will be used more like a WR IMO which can pay big dividends early given a team knows how to use him. Njoku and Howard are good but I think their production will be mostly limited to red zone work until 2018. In my rankings I tried to take into account a little bit of both, a set of dynasty rankings that are mostly win now in principle. In a dynasty league though, I really like Njoku over the rest of the TEs. I also hate Mike Williams in redraft, I think it's going to take time and there is also bust potential.
  25. Looks like it was pcl first time, acl 2nd time. My bad, gave misinformation. Either way, not good.
