  1. Saquon Barkley 2018 Season Outlook

    You can't use one aspect of PFF grading and ignore the rest. They had him as a worse QB than Flacco, and tied for 26th overall. He only graded above average in time to throw (1st), and intermediate throws grade (8th). Everything else was outside the top 19, and most in the 26th and worse range. And that's actually an improvement over his year without everyone hurt. ETA: With that said, there should be plenty of dump off passes coming Barkley's way, so it's probably a boon for Barkley.
  2. Michael Gallup 2018 Season Outlook

    5/81 at Alabama with that surrounding talent (+ a solo tackle for the IDP guys) is nothing to sneeze at, nor is 5/67. It's not MIke Evans senior season against Alabama/Auburn (600 combined yards), but then we'd just be complaining that he put up all his stats in 2 games.

    Colorado and Alabama give him tougher secondaries faced than any Big12 team except OU.
  4. BOLD PREDICTIONS 2018 SEASON

    Please god no. Start Rush/White, take your lumps, and get one of the elite DL or AJ Brown next year.
  5. New York Giants 2018 Season Outlook

    Titans are an apparently ascending playoff team. I'm not going to say they don't sweep the Eagles, but you're being unreasonably favorable to your team, IMO, if you think you'll beat the defending Super Bowl champs who seemingly are getting a better roster while coming off the #2 draft pick, no matter how well you improved.
  6. New York Giants 2018 Season Outlook

    Curious who you have 8 to. I think Cowboys, Texans, Redskins, Bucs, Bears, and Colts are some I'd plan on. Giving them the benefit of the doubt (and shooting below what I think a full offseason Jimmy G does, I'll throw in the 49ers. That gets me to seven. Cowboys, Redskins, Eagles x 2, Jags, Saints, Panthers, Falcons, Titans I'd call as losses. I have an easier time seeing some of those in the W column move to the L than I do seeing some of the L's moving to the W.

    By the same token, producing WR2 numbers nearly every single week makes you a very studly WR1 (full acknowledging that the "very studly" is purely subjective meaningless jargon). Since we do play a week to week game, you come out ahead every time your opponents WR1 doesn't put up a huge week. Consistency is its own kind of value.
  8. Lamar Jackson 2018 Season Outlook

    Jackson doesn't get enough credit for his arm. He's very loose mechanically, but he has accuracy and power. Most importantly to me, you saw real progression with his progressions (=p) in 2017 compared to 2016. He's definitely a project, and based on combine interview reports, he has a long way to go in terms of learning an NFL offense. But I don't think he has a significantly less a chance of becoming an NFL QB than Josh Allen. ETA: And for the record, I'm the type of guy that hates "dual" threat QBs. I think, given a legitimate coach, a couple years to learn, and gaining the ability to read defenses, he can succeed as a passer alone. Will he get those 3? Who knows.
  9. Equanimeous St. Brown 2018 Season Outlook

    Honestly, the refusal to play special teams bothers me more. Think the stretching is ignorance brought on by upbringing, and as long as he isn't constantly getting soft tissue injuries, who cares.
  10. Equanimeous St. Brown 2018 Season Outlook

    @taobballWell, at least now we have an idea of the type of stuff rumored at the combine interviews.
  11. Saquon Barkley 2018 Season Outlook

    That already drops him to the 10th pick. Looking at guys like Thomas, Kamara, Hunt, DJ, McCoy, it's not crazy to push him into the second round.
  12. 2018 Rookie RB Class

    He hasn't died. He just needs Gurley to get injured. He's probably going to be one of the top handcuffs I try and target for a lotto pick. So maybe that's just life support?
  13. Saquon Barkley 2018 Season Outlook

    My point being, all of them were the top or near the top of their respective rookie classes. I happen to think Barkley can be a not so lite version of Tomlinson. I would take him in the first round. But he hasn't established himself in the NFL yet. If the difference between what I think Barkley is and what I KNOW Antonio Brown is, logically I should hold off. He has the same risk factors (injury, key teammate injury, etc.) that every elite fantasy player has, but also has to get caught up to speed on the offense, and possibly could have peaked in college. It lowers the expected value enough that I really should be taking the veteran guy. I might get lucky. But that doesn't mean it's the logical, data driven pick.

    Mixon, Sankey, Henry, McCaffrey in standard, Christine Michael say hi.
  15. 2018 NFL Draft "Gameday" Thread

    No matter how talented he was, he had an inner lip tattoo. Hate the pick for that fact alone.
