    What looks hard about that? All those defenses suck.

    I think not hand cuffing your studs is an unnecessary risk. Especially on an offense where they're featuring a bell cow; it's not far fetched to think Anderson would get all the work. He's shown capable before.

    Why are people calling him an RB3? He's #11 in standard non ppr, which is a low end RB1.

    How do you guys feel about "renting" players. Team A is non contending and traded Michael Thomas for a conditional pick (If Team B wins the title, Team A gets a 2nd rounder, at worst is a 4th rounder.) It's a 10 man, two keeper league. Where this gets tricky for me is, per the trade agreement, Team B will immediately ship Thomas back to Team A after the season is over so A can keep him for next year. I'm not sure what it is, but something doesn't seem right about the concept of "Renting" players for a stretch run; I just can't place my finger on why.

    Did you read what I wrote. You're free to look into that link for yourself and see if you see a top 3 safety there. It's much easier to get an accurate guage of how an entire group performs than it is a single individual. There's no way to know everyone's individual assignment or responsibility is on any given play, but you can see the results. Comparing group results as a whole to other groups isn't all that difficult. When Alexander and King are both healthy and on the field, which they are, GB has a formidable secondary. They just held the leagues best offense to 8 points below their season average on the road. It isn't the sieve that it used to be. Btw, I'm far from some PFF truther. In the right context, it does have a little merit. But isn't some gospel. Haha hasn't looked good. The link above highlights that. Green Bay just traded him while they're right in the thick of things. They wouldn't do that if he was playing at a high level.

    He wasn't very good for GB to begin with. I know PFF has him rated like #3, which is either completely inaccurate, or safety play around the league is abysmal. I'm not going to derail the Gordon thread with Haha talk, but I'll leave this link below for anyone to take a gander at and form their own conclusions. As it relates to Gordon, I don't think it moves the needle at all. Williams played safety quite a bit this preseason, so it's not going to be some new transition for him.

    Green Bay's secondary current grades out 6th best per PFF. I don't think this is going to be some cake walk that people are thinking

    You really thought one of those guys was going to get it done? Cupp was flirting as the WR1 before missing time. You're not going to get that for an underwhelming Coleman or Drake, or a hurt Thompson

    Because in his games this year he hasn't covered anyone with a sizeable height advantage. He spent all of last Sunday running with Cooks. Against Minnesota it was mostly Diggs (Diggs did most his damage on one play when they decided to let Tramon try to cover him.) He followed Crowder. Alexander's has got great long speed to go with short area quickness. He was drafted specifically to handle Diggs and Tate within the NFCN. King and Jackson have the size speed combo to handle bigger bodied WRs. Tramon said today he's moving to safety. If I was a betting man, id say these are what matchups we'll see most Sunday: Gordon vs King Edelman vs Alexander Hogan vs Jackson Gronk vs Josh Jones White will cause issues for Green Bay. It's more likely they would dedicate Alexander to him than Gordon.

    Alexander will not be on Gordon. He'll draw either Tramon Williams or Josh Jackson. Alexander will work the slot against Edelman predominately.

    Hilton has no problems creating seperation. Better QB. Worse defense. No issues starting if you ask me.

    You have to be good to pull coverage.

    Savvy, veteran move.
