  1. Kenneth Dixon 2018 Outlook

    I picked him up but won't be starting him unless there is some clear evidence he will be a workhorse. He definitely could score 12-15pts this week and that wouldn't surprise me. But there is still too much uncertainty in his carries and usage. I do believe the Ravens really like Dixon or why keep him this long? Why continue to invest in him when he is injured and being suspended. They could have just cut bait. For some reason Harbaugh loves this guy and I can see him getting more touches this week. But still too much uncertainty for me starting him. Keeper league - there is a chance he is the starter next year. Thing is, can he stay healthy? I'm not so sure about that.

    Watch him be limited.... Man I sure hope he's close to 100% if he plays. Can't afford a dud or him being a decoy this week.
  3. Courtland Sutton 2018 Outlook

    These next few games will be interesting to see and if he can be a go-to #1WR on this team. I can't see Sanders being back next year and if he is it will be really really late in the season. Look at Foreman - he was just activated now and they don't even know if he will play much. So what does DEN do at WR next year? They went from 3 WRs to 1 in a short period of time. I really hope Sutton can be that #1WR DEN is looking for and he can be a long term keeper.
  4. Courtland Sutton 2018 Outlook

    I'm starting him this week at flex but my expectations are tempered. I admit I expected more out of Sutton over the past 4-5 weeks. A little disappointing. But you still have the coaches and management talking about Sutton and his skills and abilities. They want to take more shots downfield, especially with 50/50 balls. But as you say, I think this is all a learning experiment and great experience for Sutton going into 2019 and even 2020. Looking forward to what he can do long term in a keeper league. He reminds me a bit of a Mike Evans in that hes a big target and not so much a possession receiver. Sutton should be getting 10-12TDs per year (maybe more) as he should be a beast in the red zone and not only a long ball type WR. As for this week, I'd love to see a breakout game. Please... one time! 7-150-2. Lets do it!

    Just keep passing Drake the ball. When they include Drake in the passing game good things happen.
  6. Ronald Jones 2018 Outlook

    To be fair he hasn't been given much of an opportunity. As for the guy you quoted I would for sure pick him up as a flyer in a dynasty league. Obviously you aren't playing him this year, unless TB goes in a tank and decides they have seen enough of Barber and want to give the rookie some burn. Dynasty this guy is a hold for sure.
  7. Courtland Sutton 2018 Outlook

    Likely starting him at flex in a good match-up vs 49ers. Someone mentioned an injury? But no mention of it that I can find. No designation either. hmm..
  8. Courtland Sutton 2018 Outlook

    He has been a big disappointment for sure. I expected a lot more from this guy but I do have to remember he is only a rookie. And owning him in 2 keeper leagues is still a good thing. Maybe it doesn't happen for him this year but hopefully he improves going forward. No one invested a high draft pick in this guy (unless true dynasty) so there is a lot of gas thrown on the fire for a guy going sometime past round 10-12. Long term investment. Denver believes which is why they traded DT.
  9. Nick Chubb 2018 Outlook

    So how do you rank Chubb for this week with these guys? Chubb Carson Miller Ekeler - since he's getting the start Ingram Connor Jones Michel All have potential this week and the rankings are all over the place for some of these guys. As for Chubb in his last 5 games in standard scoring: 14 7.5 15 32.9 24.8 Hard time bench that production even vs a tough D. I think the key is for him to get a few receptions and make things happen once he gets the ball. Spread out that D. He also seems to be running more patiently - similar to Bell which looks to help his game. I'd feel more comfortable playing Chubb over Connor (who plays the Rams), Ingram, Michel and Jones. Carson is a ? and Chubb is probably a safer play. Miller was on fire last game but likely won't bust a 97 yarder again. Chubb is likely to bust a long run before Miller does it again.
  10. Corey Davis 2018 Outlook

    He has done much better when Mariotta is healthy. And he is starting to get more consistent targets. I think he will still have his ups and downs but he is starting to look better and better. I am likely keeping him in 1 if not 2 keeper leagues as this kid is only 23.
  11. Courtland Sutton 2018 Outlook

    This is the key. He goes from 6 targets a game with DT to 3 targets a game.... ????? Ugh... ok?
  12. Courtland Sutton 2018 Outlook

    The two leagues I own him are keepers so I'm holding but I don't know if I can start him. As soon as he is on the bench he will explode for a big 6-120-1 line or something crazy like that. His match-up this week is actually really good. But what do you do with this kid. I still 100% believe in the talent, he just might need more time.
  13. Nick Chubb 2018 Outlook

    Hot damn, people are sitting Chubb? Hmmm... I have some great options but never thought about sitting him but now I'm getting worried. What about him getting a few passes and busting a long one? Eh... this is tough. EDIT - as mentioned above, this offense is starting to roll and Mayfield is giving them some swagger. The thing is they are young, so intimidation and "fear" of a HOU defense might not even register with CLE.
  14. Kenyan Drake 2018 Outlook

    Drake has talent. I do wonder if the coaches are trying to limit his work the last number of weeks with the shoulder injury. Guy just keeps on trucking and playing while injured. Wonder if this injury just needs rest or if he will need off-season surgery. When Drake does play and gets enough touches he produces. Up to the coaches if they are going to actually use him each week.
