  1. Alvin Kamara 2018 Outlook

    because Kamara owners still don’t want to admit they are drafting a timeshare RB with a top 10 pick
  2. Kenneth Dixon 2018 Outlook

    Imagine a backfield with Derrick Henry starting and Kenneth Dixon the change of pace / 3rd down back? Rotoworld Delusion-All Stars They’d be tough to stop, as defenses would also have to account for Dorial Green Beckham and Martavis Bryant at WR.
  3. Leonard Fournette 2018 Outlook

    this guy put up ~40 receptions in 13 games ... wow. Sold !
  4. Leonard Fournette 2018 Outlook

    he's the last of the RBs I'd be comfortable with early, so hello 6th overall pick ... Jaguars coach Doug Marrone said the team is working to get Leonard Fournette more involved on third downs this year. Fournette was an effective pass-catcher last year, delivering 36 catches for 302 yards on 48 targets. He occasionally ceded passing-down work to T.J. Yeldon and Corey Grant, but based on Marrone's comments, there's less chance of that happening in 2018. "He seems to be doing a good job," said Marrone. "It’s a little bit different on third down, schematically what we do. He’s just getting himself comfortable with that." Fournette reportedly dropped 15 pounds this offseason and is hoping his new, lighter physique will make him more versatile. He's a safe investment as an RB1.
  5. Saquon Barkley 2018 Outlook

    he was literally running full speed today, has been doing agility/change of direction/position drills for days, warms up with the team daily, and even returned to limited/side work literally the next day after the "tweak" https://www.newsday.com/sports/football/giants/saquon-barkley-working-toward-his-return-to-giants-practice-1.20595197 "Saquon Barkley did about as much in practice without actually practicing as a player can do on Monday. The rookie running back spent a good deal of time on the side working with trainers and ramping up his rehab from a hamstring injury that has left him day-to-day. Barkley did everything that he would have had to do on the field, from cutting and jumping to running sprints to catching footballs. While the rest of the team was going through drills, Barkley looked as if he actually was working harder than they were." They are handling him with kid gloves. Nothing more.
  6. Kenneth Dixon 2018 Outlook

    All I know is he piled up yardage vs a backup prevent defense and isn’t fully healthy yet but played anyway because his roster spot is in jeopardy Buck is nothing special, but annually underrated and a lovely late round pick in PPR Just take both late and it sorts itself out.
  7. Leonard Fournette 2018 Outlook

    this is all that matters. Grab Yeldon.
  8. Kenneth Dixon 2018 Outlook

    Buck Allen is the 3rd down back.
  9. Mark Ingram 2018 Outlook

    I tend to end up with Ingram as my RB2 and then guys like Dion Lewis/T.Coleman/Crowell etc. filling in. Ingram is ridiculously underrated in real life and even more so in fantasy. Look at the RBs going around him, I'd much rather have him than Collins'/Ajayi types a round earlier.
  10. Leonard Fournette 2018 Outlook

    Thank you, when this level of overanalysis is needed to knock a player - I am convinced that player is a good option. Fournette @ 6th overall it is (unless Zeke/DJ are there)
  11. Mark Ingram 2018 Outlook

    he should be your 4th round pick, as he's by far the best RB option available that late based on the suspension and delusion of Kamara "taking over". grab Ingram, take Jonathan Williams later and plug him in @ flex if need be.
  12. Jonathan Williams 2018 Outlook

    Mentioned this on the preseason week 2 thread, but now he gets a blurb and a thread. Starting to separate himself as the “Ingram role” back in NO ... Search his 2017 Outlook and basically copy and paste it here. Size, talent, compete package in line for an early season role in 1 of the leagues best offenses. https://www.google.com/amp/s/amp.thenewsstar.com/amp/981129002 Now Williams has a real shot to contribute, receiving compliments from Saints head coach Sean Payton and quarterback Drew Brees: “He’s stuck his nose in there in pass protection better than anybody I’ve seen in a while,” Brees said. “He really takes pride in that. … Typically, that takes an evolution.” Kamara’s role is not changing, they’ve said this repeatedly - they view him as a time share back that will not only keephim fresh but more effective. You likely have a back sitting there on the wire who should see 8-12 touches / goalline carries for the Saints week 1-4.
  13. Leonard Fournette 2018 Outlook

    Yeah, Fournette’s the last of the “bellcows” I like ... plus he has a handcuff I can rely on. Done and done.
  14. Josh Gordon 2018 Outlook

    For the love of god relax until Thursday - I want to go RB heavy and take him 4th round
  15. Saquon Barkley 2018 Outlook

    Running full speed off to the side ... sitting out today as a precaution - today is full pads/contact Re: schedule, Jags D is not good vs the run and struggled against “receiving backs” ... Shurmur is running a much more physical / heavy handed camp
  16. Jonathan Williams 2018 Outlook

    Yessirr.
  17. Leonard Fournette 2018 Outlook

    He will be going 3rd overall ... I’m assuming Gurley, Bell 1-2 ... it’ll be a matter of where Brown goes ideally Brown goes 4/5 and I just take Zeke or DJ after those 2 I feel like Fournette’s the best RB left ... I’m not touching Kamara at his price
  18. James Washington 2018 Outlook

    2017 award winner for best college WR ... https://mobile.twitter.com/PFF_College/status/961725122347495425/photo/1 https://mobile.twitter.com/PFF_College/status/938581584701161472/photo/1 No thread for the best deep threat in college football who also happened to be even more dominant on screens/slants? Martavis Bryant’s replacement.
  19. Leonard Fournette 2018 Outlook

    he is absurdly low ranked on yahoo ... i think in the 20s ... unfortunately the owners between my 1st/2nd pick know what they are doing so no way he'd fall to me ... i'm considering him 6th overall
  20. Saquon Barkley 2018 Outlook

    15 carries / 5 receptions per game; ~320 touches on the year. he could average only 4 YPC and still put up around 1600 total yards. He's going to be getting 60+ receptions.
  21. Atlanta Falcons 2018 Outlook

    strongly considering julio jones as WR1 after looking at schedule and essential lock for 1400 yards ... at some point he's got to experience some positive TD regression.
  22. Kenneth Dixon 2018 Outlook

    he came in with backups and piled most of his yards against the colts 2nd string prevent defense. collins was rested, buck allen was in first and didn't disappoint ... pump the brakes a little.
  23. 2018 Draft Strategy

    i have 6th overall in 12 teams ... thinking stud WR ... value seems there at WR in round 2 as well with evans/allen types ... unfortunately by 3rd round RB gets real bleak after the 2/3 turn ...
  24. Saquon Barkley 2018 Outlook

    receptions and those yards count too ... i couldn't care less if barkley leads the league in rushing. it's 2018.
  25. Saquon Barkley 2018 Outlook

    i think i said this exact thing a month ago or so, literally saying I get why people would take him over Barkley. Then saying why I think Barkley can outperform him and will roll the dice on that potential ... all i did today was resurrect this thread to show people he's healthy (i said last week they were going to ramp up his workouts and then found proof of what I said, so shared it)
