  1. Michael Crabtree 2017 Season Outlook

    I actually don't think it was a mistake. Despite his disappointing past month, he is still a WR1 (I do play in a 14 team league, but think he was 10 in our half ppr set up). He was last year. He just missed it in 2015. He's got a nice WR2 floor (season long), but has very realistic backend top 10 WR upside. But even if he misses expectations a little, he's not killing anyone.

    Bottles contract can be closed at end of year to free up something like 19m in cap. They also have 30m+ in rollover. Not a crazy destination money wise
  3. Deshaun Watson 2017 Season Outlook

    That's what I thought. I like the guy. I just thought (and to a certain degree, still do) think there's a lot of rookie hype built into people's view of him. I don't expect ANY rookie qb to perform top 12 season long. Some have (including my beloved cowboy last year), but most don't. Given the missed turnover issues and defenses he had played against, I don't regret the call at all. I missed, but (at least to me) I had reasons for the miss.
  4. Deshaun Watson 2017 Season Outlook

    Meant that as season long, as he still does have the negatives I brought up. Even last night, he had 3 ints. I somehow (thankfully) wasn't in market for that game despite living closer to Houston than Dallas, so I can't comment on if those are concerning or not, but 4 tds wipes that out wrt fantasy. With that said, I am now looking up marinades to try to make my shorts more palatable. Tearing up bad pass defenses is one thing. Seattle is another, and changes the calculus going forward.
  5. Deshaun Watson 2017 Season Outlook

    I meant ROS when I said that, but I'm looking up marinades now. Do it against 4 of the worst secondaries, I'll keep doubting. Do it in Seattle, well, that shuts down a lot of doubt. Picks are concerning, but east to forgive on a 4 td day. Both Texas teams are definitely in good hands for awhile.
  6. Deshaun Watson 2017 Season Outlook

    15 is possible, but I'm honestly expecting something like 220, 1/2, or 11ish points passing. So he needs a big rushing play to have an okay day, and I'm not sure how likely that is. If he'd my only qb, I'm not bending over backwards to pick up a one week fill in. But I wouldn't start him in daily, or if I had 2 decent qbs. I'm Not starting Mccown, but Cam, Stafford, or Dalton? Think I'd go those directions (off top of head don't remember lions match-up)
  7. Deshaun Watson 2017 Season Outlook

    He has an objectively weak arm. Blake Sims is the only guy to throw with less velocity as the combine in the last 5 years. Being able to throw far isn't what most people consider arm strength. Houston's a dome, so home games that won't matter (and arm strength is overrated under normal circumstances). Looking at their road schedule, they're actually not playing that many northern outdoor games, so I'm probably overstating it's impact this year. But I"ll eat my shorts if he keeps up this pace. He's getting away with things he shouldn't be (combination of sheer luck on dropped INTs and bad secondary). Like i said above. I like the guy. I think he's a franchise QB. But he's on an unsustainable pace and has had an easy schedule the last month.
  8. Deshaun Watson 2017 Season Outlook

    Think thats probably overrated. He's on an unsustainable pace, and the weather is only going to get worse, which is going to be an issue with his mediocre (generous) arm strength when he travels. His blow up the last month has been among the worst secondaries in the league, and he's gotten away with a lot of passes that should have been intercepted but weren't. Add both factors, and defenses getting more tape as the season goes on, and I think he comes back to more what I would expect a good rookie to put up. Which isn't a top 12 QB. He'll probably end up there because of his explosion, but if you started a new season THIS WEEK, I don't think he's a top 12 guy. Great kid. As someone who lives near Houston, glad the city clearly has a decent QB to hope for the future with. But I don't think the fantasy train is going to continue chugging at its current speed.
  9. Andrew Luck 2017 Outlook

    They haven't just shunned O-line in the first round for other needs. They've been EXTREMELY lackadaisical about building a line. You don't want to spend a first, fine? You don't want to spend any? You're going to kill your quarterback. I'm honestly not going to be surprised if Wilson is next. A throwing shoulder labrum injury couldn't end his career (or derail it as one of the sports bright future mega stars)? I doubt it does. My guess is he takes the time to recover and comes back at a high (if not previous high) level. But there's a possibility it affects him too much.
  10. Deshaun Watson 2017 Season Outlook

    He actully has had a pretty soft secondary schedule recently, but it doesn't get that much harder. Seahawks, Jags, Cardinals, Steelers are the only defenses I'm remotely worried about going forward. But this TD streak is unsustainable. Very decent chance you can sell high and make out like a bandit. That's not to say he sucks going forward. He can regress from leading the league in TD's and still be VERY good.
  11. Jerick McKinnon 2017 Season Outlook

    After the look the (I'm assuming) RB coach was giving him after the long TD, I think he's clearly first option in their minds.
  12. Ricardo Louis 2017 Season Outlook

    Still don't hold a candle to Seattle O-lineman.
  13. Chris Hogan 2017 Season Outlook

    Best case scenario? Yes. The D is lackluster, and Hogan clearly has Brady's trust. I don't like betting on best case scenario though.

    IMO, Watkins is more of a threat on deeper yardage. He's not Desean Jackson, but he's closer to that end of the spectrum than he is to say, current Fitz. The Cowboys are a D that seeks to eliminate the big plays, and keep the play in front of him. This was a good game for Woods/Kupp. Maybe it would be different if Watkins practiced all week, but I expected this to be meh.
  15. 10/1/17 Rams @ Cowboys Game Thread

    Replay is weird to me sometimes. Clearly pinned entire way through, and 2 feet in after he pinned the ball. But no overturn. But I've seen a guy with possession of the ball holding it out over the end zone on a called fumble. Thanks to that shot, he HAS to score a TD or be down short, but they upheld the fumble.
