  1. Derrick Henry 2019 Outlook

    This is true. Is he going to run like D. Henry at the end of last season or Trent Richardson? As for his receptions - I would really like the team to set up some screens for him or the odd dump-off pass but I think a lot of that is on the QB. They just don't seem to want to pass to Henry even though he does well once he is in space with the ball.
  2. Kareem Hunt 2019 Outlook

    Even if Hunt does find a new team how much of his success is a product of the offense and team? KC has had a viable RB for years - doesn't matter who the starter is, he is usually putting up weekly top 10RB #s. Ware, West and now Williams have all done it. Even Knile Davis had his time. Yes Hunt has the skills and abilities but I wonder what happens if he does go to a new team/offense and how he fits in. Having said that I'm not sure any team will pick him up for this year. He may be done forever.
  3. Le'Veon Bell 2019 Outlook

    I do believe in his talent and do believe he can be a top 5 RB again. But you are correct with a lot of questions. No guarantee he ends up as the Bell cow. He might but we don't know that and what happens if he goes to a team where the coach wants to RBBC? No doubt the system in Pitts is great for RBs and is one reason why he was able to succeed. But if he goes to the right team he could do it again. The big question is value and where his ADP ends up. I might be looking to buy in keeper leagues if there is a person who is unsure. Maybe can get him for "cheap" on the dollar - even though come September he might not be a top 5-10 RB. So much can change but it might be worth putting some feelers out in keeper leagues.

    Hot damn, 36 catches. I can only wish. 1300 yards rushing would be great and I would take it every day.
  5. Derrius Guice 2019 Outlook

    I've been trying all season to get him in keeper leagues and everyone is already buying the hype. Have to pay "full price" in order to acquire him and I'm not willing to pay full price (i.e., top RB) right now. Also as for ADP - if he stays healthy I bet by next August he is going close to round 2. He won't be lasting until round 4 if he looks to be the starter in WSH. In my 3 keeper leagues everyone is already drinking the koolaid.
  6. Derrius Guice 2019 Outlook

    I'm a big fan of his and like his drive and determination but I think his ADP will be too high for my liking. I think he has tons of talent but he still hasn't played in a regular season NFL game. He could be great and maybe he will be eventually but he could also start slow like Cook did this year. Paying for potential... Sometimes it doesn't always work out.

    This is what I hope to see more of in 2019 - consistency where they continue to use him throughout the whole game, helping the team move the chains. 16/93 and 1/13 rec should be closer to what his floor is each game. I also think he realized he needed to change his game and we saw what he can do when he is determined and motivated. It is unfortunate he wasn't running like this to start the season but this is the DH we need to start 2019.

    I think even his biggest supporters understand he isn't currently an RB1. And he needs some things to go his way for 2019 in order for him to keep producing but you cannot throw out the last half of the season - once TEN decided they actually needed Henry to help them win games. That could indeed carry over to next season. So how about we look at the last 10 weeks of the season. 143 for 819 and 12 TDs. That is an average of 5.7 ypc for his last 10 games. As mjb03003 shows above he has been improving each year and getting more carries each year. I doubt he will get 5 targets per game (but I would like to see it to see what he could do with them) but he should be the lead back for TEN next year as well. He also could improve on his numbers if they decided to give him 15 carries each game minimum. Even if you throw out his 200+ yard game his avg YPC in the last 10 games is something like 4.7 which is still pretty good.

    Had him as a keeper last year in 2 leagues. Went most of the season disappointing me, so much that I was close to dropping. Then he lights it up and is now back as a keeper option for me. He showed what he can do when the team leans on him and actually gives him carries. Had 1 catch for 13 yards last game but they don't give him m(any) opportunities throwing him the ball. I still don't understand why. Not like they have to give him 5+ targets each game but maybe give him more than 1, especially when he takes it 13 yards. So much potential but so frustrating watching him most of the season. I don't suppose there are any early auction values for him for 2019? Lots can change in the offseason but I think he's back as a keeper for me for both leagues. He is still young at 25.

    Well that is just it. The running game also got going but Mariota is better than the start of the year.
  11. Derrick Henry 2018 Outlook

    This offense struggled when Mariota wasn't healthy.
  12. Andrew Luck 2018 Outlook

    It is a good point. He could get another 10pts fantasy wise and they win the game. I think its either 10-12pts or 25pts. Don't get anything in between. But if he's going for 25pts I want to start him...
  13. Andrew Luck 2018 Outlook

    So which Luck do we get this weekend. I'm struggling with starting him. At home vs NYG should be a good game for him... Should is the key word with how things have been going lately. Fantasy Pros has him listed as the 4th best QB for this week....
  14. Derrick Henry 2018 Outlook

    Now can they start working him into the passing game with some screens etc?
  15. Derrick Henry 2018 Outlook

    This next game isn't just for $ but also will go a long way determining if I keep Henry next year. Can he continue to put big games together and finish strong. 3-4 weeks ago I was ready to cut bait... now he has my attention again. We need consistency here and a big game this week would go a long way in showing that he can be a lead back.
