  1. Kenyan Drake 2018 Outlook

    Thanks all; officially on board the Drake train!
  2. Kenyan Drake 2018 Outlook

    Yeah - but I'm usually on the bandwagon of take the best player in the trade if you have depth (which I do), because I have other flexes I could use over Lynch. And Drake seems like less of a sure thing given the Miami O-line (larger factor) and Gore (smaller factor)... Maybe I'm overthinking it though.

    Would you guys accept Drake and Lynch for Ingram? My RB1 is Gurley, but I have no solid RB2 until Ingram returns (just Barber and Carson) and I was offered this by the the Drake owner. Ingram outscored Drake even in the second half of the year last year, and having a piece in the high-powered Saints offense is enticing, as I see no reason why he wouldn't replicate last year given Payton's preference for a 2-RB offense
  4. Who to drop?

    Yeah you could drop Garcon for Gio or Buck Allen, if you want to get a handcuff.
  5. Help pick my starters! WHIR

    Freeman, Enunwa, Cooper or Hogan. I'd lean Cooper.
  6. Trade for Mahones?

    Would he take Alison? I think Jones is more talented than Stills. He may be due for some regression, but I don't think it will be significant, and I think he's a safer bet than Stills to end up as a WR2. The Lions defense is not good, and they will have to sling the ball to stay in games this year. On further reflection though, I think it is worth it for you to make the trade either way though. Too often, I find owners are fixated on getting a fair trade with exactly equal or better value. While you may be giving up slightly 'more' value in a positional sense, your team would benefit FAR more from a better starting QB than a WR. Stills or Jones are flex plays for you (and you have insurance there with Alison and Enunwa as well). I know I'd feel a lot better in the playoffs with a top 5-10 QB (which Mahones has potential to finish in) than Smith (who isn't going to win you many games imo).
  7. Trade for Mahones?

    You have a solid core of receivers, and no immediate need as Smith is solid. I think offering Jones at this point is a slight overpay. I think Jones he'll finish as top 15-30 receiver. I'd first offer him Stills (or Allison) for Mahones. If he says no, and you want an upgrade at QB, you could consider offering Jones, and make it a 2 for 2 trade. Jones/weaker player for Mahones/stronger player.
  8. Who should I drop?

    I think Ingram is a definite hold, and Ekeler will have standalone value. I think Williams has more upside than Breida, but more competition/ less certain situation. I don't think it's a foregone conclusion he loses the job to Jones. So, depending on your appetite for risk, I'd drop Williams or Breida. Personally, Breida is less known and likely to be picked up, so I'd lean towards dropping him for now, and try to course correct if Breida goes off this week.
  9. I''m not sure why Baldwin would have been dropped. Seems like an overreaction. I'd pick him up, and drop Cole. I think Anderson still has more upside and no one is clamoring for Cole right now. If that's wrong after seeing the Jets offense in the next 1-2 weeks, you might have a chance to drop Anderson and pick Cole right back up.
  10. Was offered Drake for Ingram in 10 team, 0.5 PPR league. Currently 0-1, with 6 teams making the playoffs. Current team RBs: Gurley, Barber, Carson, Ingram. QB: Brady WR: Evans, Adams, Crabtree, Agholor, Golladay, Fuller TE: Graham, Kittle In weeks 9-17 last year, Drake averaged 13.5 fantasy points. Ingram last year averaged 15.6 fantasy points for the year and was fairly steady throughout (averaged 14 points in weeks 1-9 and 16.7 points in weeks 9-17). I expect a bit of down-tick for Ingram with the suspension and emergence of Kamara--but the Saints obviously have a high-powered offense and Payton loves the 2-RB attack. I have significant concerns about Miami's offense and O-line. And some concern about the number of touches Drake might get. I'm confident he'll be the main guy, but in his biggest games last year (against Denver, NE, Buffalo) he averaged 21 attempts and nearly 7 targets a game. I expect slightly lower volume with Gore (but still enough to put up a solid 10-14 points I think, but less boom potential). Thoughts/perspective? Obviously 4 missed games for Ingram is a lot and could have implications for my ability to make the playoffs if Carson or Barber don't step up...
  11. 12/10/17 New York Jets @ Denver Broncos

    Welp I'm out. Should have gone with Goff. This one hurts--might be the strongest team I've had on paper....
  12. 12/10/17 Oakland Raiders @ Kansas City Chiefs

    Oakland sucks. With Kamara's injury, Ingram's mediocrity this past week, and Lynch's no show, there goes my season. What a frustrating end.
  13. Marshawn Lynch 2017 Outlook

    Oakland needs to start doing something or I'm toast....
  14. Josh McCown 2017 Season Outlook

    Broncos have been giving up the 9th most points to QBs over the last 4 weeks, and McCown is on fire
  15. Stephen Anderson 2017 Season Outlook

    Regretting not blocking my opponent from getting this guy. I think he has a good chance to go off.
