  1. Saquon Barkley 2018 Season Outlook

    9 minutes of TDs I’m partial to the ones he plows through defenders at the goal line. The effortless TDs in the passing game, and the ones he flashes the breakaway speed / absurd athleticism, are cool too I guess.
  2. Leonard Fournette 2018 Season Outlook

    His ankle is a legitimate chronic issue Love Fournette this year - definitely reaching for Yeldon if I end up of Fournette

    sorry I’m not supposed to talk about “others” right ... good night
  7. Saquon Barkley 2018 Season Outlook

    Thank you - I’ve embraced the ignore feature more and more as I learn that certain posters are literally trolling with no knowledge of (reality) football whatsover. Not even worth the acknowledgement of a debate. Years ago you could actually discuss real football on here. Now it’s 99% emoji-laden “burns” from people who probably don’t even understand the game outside of Maddenx power rankings. and “expert” ranks. I’m actually going to bed, so don’t take this the wrong way ... Good night.

    Ding ... people keep getting caught up on the rushing yards - if the Giants are losing all that means is more and more dump offs to Barkley. He’s not coming off the field. It’s actually his ability in the passing game that has me viewing him as essentially match up proof. I’ve repeatedly said I actually think he finishes (barely) under 1,000 rushing yards. He is getting slept on big time for his ability in the passing game. Obviously Odell is the alpha, and Shepard is a lovely slot / 4th option, but this offense is going to run through Odell, Barkley, and EE’s mismatches - with Shepard killing defenses on the rare occasion those 3 are all covered. The Giants are loaded at the skill positions, but that doesn’t mean Barkley won’t see 300-350 touches. There is no way Shurmur/Shula don’t give him the ball 20-25 times a game ... I expect this time next year he’s going 1.01 unanimously.

    Thank you for the objectivity. While obviously I’m thrilled he’s on “my team” (reality and fantasy) ... the guy is about as flawless a prospect as I’ve seen - and yes, I would be as high on him if he was a Brown/Colt/etc. He’s an incredible “weapon” - not just running back. (I actually think he finishes with less than 1,000 yards rushing and is still top 5). Its easy to watch the highlights and forget you are watching a 230+ pound running back - I’m more impressed with the runs that go into the box score as a 5-10 yard gain but it took otherworldly athleticism to pull off (the hurdle/sideline tightrope Maryland run for example). I recall watching his game vs Iowa and thinking “too bad the Giants won’t ever have a chance at him ...” - hopefully he makes 3-13 worth it, because that was by far the worst season I’ve ever witnessed.

    Pretty crazy how undervalued Hopkins was last year ... had Gurley/Hopkins/Jags in one league last year - team was on autopilot
  11. Saquon Barkley 2018 Season Outlook

    Still waiting for an actual rationale for why Saquon can’t meet/exceed those projections I can’t wait for his first blow up game and the inevitable “sell high, defenses are gonna like watch film” BS sure to come ..
  12. 2018 Rotoworld Mock Real League

    So Barkley was going either 4th or 6th ... interesting
  13. Saquon Barkley 2018 Season Outlook

    Says the guy who mentions 2 smurfs nowhere near as good as Barkley and a bunch of Giants retreads who don’t even warrant discussion as “support” for the argument - that 1500 yards is also with only 4 ypc, which can obviously be higher.
  14. Saquon Barkley 2018 Season Outlook

    and Leveon averaged 9 ypr his rookie year followed by 10+ ypr his second season ... great point. Duke Johnson almost averaged 10 ypr this year as well ... it’s not unheard of, nor is it impossible. Barkley, 1 way or another, is going to put up 1500+ total yards. Good night
  15. Saquon Barkley 2018 Season Outlook

    Cool, Kamara did - and Mixon, Gurley... Not one of those names listed did because not one of them is even remotely close to as talented. I don’t know what’s so difficult to comprehend - Saquon Barkley is literally everything you like about Kamara, Leveon, DJ, Zeke - with either a bigger frame or more athleticism His ability receiving out the backfield is as good as it gets - and he’s got 2 offensive minded coaches who will feed him accordingly. He is going to catch 60+ passes, he is going to touch the ball 20-25 times a game, and he’s going to do so while defenses key on Odell Beckham.
  16. Saquon Barkley 2018 Season Outlook

    15 carries per game, 4 YPC: 960 rush yards 4 receptions per game, 10 YPC: 640 receiving yards 1500 total yards ... at least.
  17. Saquon Barkley 2018 Season Outlook

    i think the most amusing part of this whole summer is the drooling over Kamara - when Barkley has literally the exact same skill set - only bigger, faster, stronger, and more athletic. literally in 2017 2 rookies were top 5 fantasy backs ... but oh no way Barkley can be right away. I hear he "Dances too much" there's a reason PEOPLE WHO AREN'T GIANTS FANS AND HAVE NO AFFILIATION WITH THE ORGANIZATION WHATSOEVER REFER TO HIM AS THE BEST RUNNING BACK PROSPECT IN DECADES, INCLUDING KAMARA'S OWN HEAD COACH
  18. Saquon Barkley 2018 Season Outlook

    Minnesota had 2 very good WRs and a good TE too. Dalvin Cook averaged 21 touches/game (counting the injury shortened game) for Shurmur last year - despite the supporting cast. He is going to be fed. 15 carries 3-5 receptions will be his weekly floor. He is going to catch an absurd amount of passes in this offense.
  19. Saquon Barkley 2018 Season Outlook

    If you honestly don’t think Barkley touches the ball 20 times a game, you’re delusional. There is is no way he plays 16 games and has less than 300 touches.
  20. Saquon Barkley 2018 Season Outlook

    Shurmur is the Giants headcoach - who loves a 3 down back that thrives in the passing game Shula is the OC - he was the OC in Carolina the point: Barkley’s offensive coaches + his skill set = a lot of receptions bonus: Barkley practiced extensively at receiver during OTAs closed to the media. And I don’t just mean lining up in the slot a few times
  21. Saquon Barkley 2018 Season Outlook

    No just Thielen, Diggs, and Rudolph and yes, they only featured their top 10 pick RB because of lack of options
  22. Saquon Barkley 2018 Season Outlook

    Long gone ... and yes they do : Saquon Barkley "He is unique for me because he has quickness and he has speed. He can score touchdowns from any part of the field and he has a couple of things I am looking for," Shurmur said. "Number one, he can catch the football. That is first and foremost. He has great vision, and then he has what we call in coaching 'collision balance.' When he goes through the hole and someone tries to tackle him, he can keep his balance … This is a guy that can do everything." https://www.google.com/amp/www.nydailynews.com/sports/football/giants/saquon-barkley-versatility-giants-excited-potential-article-1.3962382%3FoutputType%3Damp I have his floor at 60 receptions (3-5 / game) His OC under Shurmur - the guy who gave Mccaffrey 80 receptions
  23. Saquon Barkley 2018 Season Outlook

    4ypc + 15 carries/game = 960 yards rushing Easily attainable. The 50+ receptions will help too.
  24. Saquon Barkley 2018 Season Outlook

    Thank you - the absurdity needed to “knock” Barkley is getting kinda funny - and sad. Still waiting for the feedback regarding the “dances too much” after people actually watch the game film. I’d just love to know how many “bad/soft” runs people will point out after actually watching him - like he even had a chance on most of his “negative runs” Everyone’s favorite “horrible” game. Looks like a lot more of lowering his shoulder and “grinding out 3 yards” than dancing / losing yardage Let me guess - “take away the kick return and the run where he ran between the tackles through an arm tackle and then effortlessly outran the defense for a score and he sucked”.
