  1. Jarvis Landry 2018 Outlook

    Yep, I want to get Landry in all the leagues I can. I already missed getting him in one of my leagues and I'm regretting it. At his current ADP there are a number of other WRs I like and it is a tough call. I do think Gordon coming back will lower Landry's "excitement" which should hopefully lower his ADP. He's sitting around $15 for standard league auction and that is a steal IMO.
  2. Josh Gordon 2018 Outlook

    I don't get points in fantasy for YPC. I really could care less. But if landry has the chance to catch a ton of balls again this year you are nuts to not look at drafting him. While his overall targets do likely go down this year, especially with Gordon back he's still going to have good value. And if Gordon misses any more time... Landry at his current ADP is a great pick.
  3. Josh Gordon 2018 Outlook

    I 100% agree with this. Gordon is ready to go now but there are proceedures/policy to follow which is on the medical team and the NFL. But here is my question. What happened in the offseason? He played last year, why isn't he cleared by the NFL to play this year? One of two things come to mind: 1) This was always the process set out with him coming back after a long offseason. My 2 cents - seems odd that there would be a condition that he couldn't start the season practicing and playing with the team in preaseason. Maybe this was all to avoid as much of Hard Knocks as possible? What else could there be? or 2) He violated some part of his conditions being in stage 3 and is dealing with that right now. But its a pretty fine line at stage 3 and any mis-step including a missed test is immediate suspension again. Gordon is ready, because if he wasn't he wouldn't be with the team. But I want to know why he wasn't with the team at the start of camp. Something is fishy and it stinks.

    112 receptions and 9 TDs. If you play in PPR I think you are pretty happy. Moreover last year in standard scoring he was being drafted around WR30-32. he finished at WR14. As a landry owner you are pretty happy with that. This year Landry is being drafted after WR20 which is about right for him in standard. I could see him putting up WR20 numbers this year.

    Unfortunately this is 100% wrong. Just because Landry doesn't light up the league with 50 yard bombs each game doesn't mean he isn't any good. He's vastly underrated. I'm saying this as a Gordon owner in a Dynasty league so I have all hopes of Gordon playing this year. I'm also saying I want to own landry in my other leagues. Being a Fins fan I've watched Landry and all he does is get open. There is a reason he's a QBs favorite target - he's open and he catches the ball. People are sleeping on Landry this year.
  6. Andrew Luck 2018 Outlook

    I'm rooting for Luck and have always been a fan. I have him in one league and will try to get him in 2 more. But I'm 100% ready with a back-up plan and monitoring waiver QBs as we speak. Hopefully he has a healthy year but it wouldn't surprise me one bit if his shoulder isn't the same and he experiences some sort of pain in it as the season goes on. If someone else drafts him earlier that I feel comfortable I'm fine with that too. His draft position has to make sense for me and that there isn't another RB/WR with upside that I want instead.
  7. Kenneth Dixon 2018 Outlook

    I've always like Dixon and have owned him on and off hoping he would get a shot. I gave up on that idea and started to look at Collins and where he might be drafted. This latest news has me wondering what will come of the BAL backfield as they have 3 RBs that could split time/carries when the season starts. I watched Collins film last year and i was impressed. If he didn't have 2 other RBs who might steal time I would be all over Collins. I also don't think Allen is going anywhere anytime soon. This is a muddy backfield but I'm watching what Dixon does over the next few weeks. He may not stay healthy or out of trouble but if he does manage to play a whole season he will likely have some sort of value. For all the problems/injuries Dixon has had it would be easy for the team to walk away from him and give Collins the early down work with Allen being the CoP. But they keep talking up Dixon...
  8. Andrew Luck 2018 Outlook

    Luck always looks terrible in the first half. Then in the second he goes off for 300 yards and 3 TDs. If you have owned him in the past you know what I'm saying. Seriously though it is still early. You either draft Luck and are in for the long haul while he gets back into game shape. Moreover, his ADP is still pretty low and his last outing will help keep it low for those drafting in the near future. Yes there is a risk but there is also top 5 upside. I picked him up in the 11th round. I'm not to worried if I have to drop him and stream QBs all year. I usually stream QBs so no big deal for me. Take the risk on a top 5 QB or just stream if he sucks. Worth the risk if you can get him late.
  9. Brandin Cooks 2018 Outlook

    Goff - just don't under throw Cooks, thanks in advance.
  10. Brandin Cooks 2018 Outlook

    Let's not get carried away with the "kicked-off" teams. The Patriots weren't going to pay him the money the Rams did. As for the Rams - there are questions as to how the targets will shake out - for sure. But Cooks is more talented and a better route runner than Woods or Kupp and you can check Woods thread from last year where I said Woods could do some good things and I got ripped for it - so I do like Woods. Cooks is the most talented received on the Rams. Yes he is the new receiver there and has to build trust with Goff so there is uncertainty for sure. But I don't see why Cooks couldn't put up another 1000 yard season with 7-9 TDs - like his last three. Maybe he even builds on his past success and gets 80 receptions...
  11. I do like Hunt and believe in the talent. I'd rather start the draft with 2 RBs and then have the option in the first round to pick the best player available. What if he only keeps Zeke and there isn't a RB he likes in the first round or even what is left in the third? What if Hunt is the only good RB there left in the first round? Then he might have to draft Hunt again for a 1st. Keeping Hunt as a 3rd round is likely the best option and value. Then he can take another RB in the first if there is a good one or he can take a top WR. He's flexible by keeping 2 top 10 ranked RBs. I think it sets him up the best for the rest of the draft. Whatever RB is left in the 3rd round is going to be a lot less valuable than Hunt.
  12. You will have two of the top 10 RBs when you keep Zeke and Hunt. Great start to your team. Keep them both and build on that.
  13. Josh Gordon 2018 Outlook

    No he's like away for one of these two reasons - or both: 1) Hard Knocks - its been discussed why he would want to stay away; 2) This latest legal issue with child payments and possibly tax money owing. (Maybe he has been trying to get it all cleared up so it isnt a distraction come the season. Still, him not being in camp is a major concern IMO.
  14. Do you have any other options? JG as a last pick as a flyer isn't too bad. If he doesn't come back you can always drop him. But you don't have any other possibilities?
  15. Trade Josh Gordon for Derrick Henry?

    Even if Gordon comes back, how confident are you that he will make it the whole season? And I'm a Gordon fan but there is significant risk here. One more strike and he's out.
