  1. Sony Michel 2018 Outlook

    Yeah, that was some smart guy. I'll wait with baited breath to see his projection for Sony in week 12.
  2. Nick Chubb 2018 Outlook

    I admittedly will pop a chub if Arians becomes Chubbs' new HC. I think it would be a solid move for the Brownies.
  3. Chubb or Michele ROS? WHIR

    Although I agree with your point about Chubb and Michel, I think it's a little disingenuous to say Chubb seems to get under 10 points every other week. He hasn't been starting long enough to really say that. In 1/2 PPR, he's scored 14.0, 8.5, 15.5 in his three weeks starting. If in three weeks, he's developed a pattern of scoring under 10pts every other week, then sure, that's a valid statement. But at this juncture, I think it's slightly misleading. Overall, if Michel continues to get the touches he was getting, then he's the obvious pick to me. Better offense, better team, more TD opps. But if they drop him back to ~15 touches, I'd have to lean Chubb because his volume isn't going anywhere.
  4. Adalberto Mondesi 2019 Outlook

    I hope you guys are right about Mondesi's floor. Anytime I see that great a disparity between K ratio and BB ratio, it causes me concern. It's those ratios, alone, that makes his floor drop significantly in my mind. If that K rate increases and his walks do not, that's not good. If he can't keep up a .335 BABIP (higher than his norm), then there are few walks to get him on base to try to help him work through a slump. If he hits a slump and starts pressing, his plate discipline won't keep putting him on base, and pressing can and will cause his Ks to increase. That said, I am really excited about owning Mondesi in a keeper (especially at the low keeper value I have him at), but I'm also cautious when determining my expectations for him in 2019. He's still too young with too little success behind him on the MLB level to not have serious concerns about him. But if he can get his walk rate to 6-7% next year and keep his Ks in the 25% range...wow. Significantly improved plate discipline with the hard contact he makes and his speed...he would likely reach beast mode. Maybe Whit can give him some tips on increasing your walk rate from one year to the next, LOL. And frankly, I would drool over those Steamer600 numbers. Though I believe if he gets 600 ABs and hits .251, he's going to get a lot more than 42 SBs...I'd put him more in the 50-55 range at that point.
  5. Whit Merrifield 2019 Outlook

    Things kicked into another gear for Merrifield in the second half. As long as he stays healthy, I think Merrifield is a good bet for 100+ runs in 2019. There's no disagreeing with the fact that Altuve Ks less and plays for a better team. I guess the bigger question, if we're going to compare the two, is whether or not Altuve gives us a healthy 150 games in 2019.
  6. Patrick Mahomes II 2018 Outlook

    Not to derail the thread, but I'll respectfully disagree with that last point. Both teams are excellent, and I think picking between the two is a toss-up. Ranking the Saints ahead of the Chiefs is not "a joke." Ranking Green Bay ahead of KC...now that would be a joke. I respect that you disagree with NO ahead of KC, but I don't think it's ridiculous. You inferred that there is disrespect for KC...sorry, but I don't see that. I see A TON of respect for the Chiefs and Mahomes, and even a defense that is about to get some key players healthy. As for Mahomes...I agree with you about this weekend. I feel like he's about to rip Arizona a new one. And as an owner in a keeper league (he'd be a 10th rd keeper)...I'm very excited about Mahomes :).
  7. Dez Bryant 2018 Outlook

    Good thing regarding that struggle...he's fresh for the final 8 games and playoffs, so maybe that helps (maybe?). But more importantly, if he can just get 1/2 a step, he now has a QB that can fit the ball in that window...something Dak cannot do.
  8. New Orleans Saints 2018 Outlook

    Love the move of signing Bryant for the Saints. They needed that legit No2 WR, and I believe Dez can be that. I know some think this is a wasted move, including one guy on NFLN who insinuated that the Saints are signing him to sell more tickets and doesn't make NOLA a better team and doesn't fill a need. Ridiculous take because Dez fills a very big need, imho. It's great that Brees can spread the ball to MT, Kamara, 3Q, Ingram, Watson...but the Saints NEED a legit No2 WR, and Dez fills that void.
  9. Tre'Quan Smith 2018 Outlook

    I think this is the key here. Imho, this is great for Quan's future. It takes some pressure off of him to perform and to step up to be that No2 WR the Saints are badly in need of. Dez comes in and relieves some of that and allows 3Q to just be a No3 WR that will be a deep threat who can take the top off of defenses but also still be very integral to the gameplan each week. I think it allows for him to grow as a young WR without the stress of trying be the No2 guy, especially as the Saints chase the top NFC seed and (presumably) enter into the playoffs. For this year, it probably does eat into his production, or potential production. But the future is very bright for Smith, and I think this signing only helps his longterm prospects.
  10. Dez Bryant 2018 Outlook

    WR2 for the Saints has value, but this is a much bigger signing in real life than in fantasy.
  11. Dez Bryant 2018 Outlook

    https://twitter.com/JeffDuncan_/status/1060204851970428928 The tweet isn't embedding for some reason, but Jeff Duncan is about as reliable as it comes with Saints info.
  12. Dez Bryant 2018 Outlook

    I believe Dez would be a better real-life signing for the Saints than he would be a fantasy signing. I can't take credit for the following, but I read it on a Saints forum...seems to make a good deal of sense to me: "If Dez still has game, how do you cover him. MT takes the top CB and maybe safety over the top help, Kamara moves into possible receiver position and takes a top CB (because no LB can cover him...few safeties can), Smith requires a fast CB, There's only one CB left to cover Bryant and Thomas requires the defenses biggest most physical CB. A small CB on a healthy Dez would be a joke with Brees throwing him lasers. Heck, Brees may just throw jump balls to Dez covered by a small CB. We all know Dez, when healthy, can and does high point and fight for every pass." This tweet seems to indicate that the Saints and Dez might come to an agreement in the near future. We'll see, but I'd like the deal for the Saints if it comes to fruition. Nothing definite, but looking positive. ETA: Rumor on a big Saints forum is that he has signed.
