  1. Courtland Sutton 2018 Outlook

    I own him in one keeper league and been trying to acquire him in my others but the owners are holding tight. What is this guys value in a keeper league (Not dynasty tho). I've been sending offers but nothing biting. How deep should one go for this guy? There is a possibility both DT and Sanders are gone next year. Having said that I'm a big Sanders fan. But Sutton could see some massive targets next year, especially if DT is sent packing. I really want to own this guy. Hes a red zone BEAST. I just don't want to mortgage the farm to trade for him either. This could also be the last week he is "cheap".

    Injury for who? I missed this.
  3. Ronald Jones 2018 Outlook

    Quite often there is a player who is picked up mid-season for cheap/free that was on waivers that can win you a league. OBJ was actually drafted and dropped in our big keeper league when he was injured at the start of the season Jordan Howard was a free pick up couple years ago Kenyan Drake was playing lights out at the end of last season and no one had him rostered for the start of the season. He was huge getting me into the championship game in 2 leagues last year. I could go on but you get the point. I'm not saying he is the next one but if you don't take the chance you won't own the next one. Worst case scenario is I drop him
  4. Ronald Jones 2018 Outlook

    He could suck. But he was also playing with back-ups.... you see the holes he had to work with? No me neither. Again no one is saying he's going to bust out. But if you have a spot on your bench and looking for a sleeper this guy can be picked up free in some leagues. Won't cost you anything....
  5. Ronald Jones 2018 Outlook

    Jones may have a great game but hes still a bench stash at this point. I do expect his role to slowly grow with a few extra carries here and there. As mentioned before the RBs ahead of him haven't done much and they may just want to see what Jones can do with more touches. He was basically a free waiver pickup as he was dropped in all my leagues - including a couple keeper leagues. When he was inactive in back to back weeks people dropped him. But now this is where TB wants to see what he can do and they had a bye week to work in a few extra wrinkles if they so chose. If nothing happens in the next week or two then maybe he is indeed a drop but he's a free lottery ticket right now. No way I can start him but he may bust out on my bench and that is fine. If he blows up then he's worth a flex start going forward.

    I agree. let him rest until he is 100%. I do believe in Cook but he hasn't been healthy. Latavius hasn't lit it up and I think Minny needs a good run game. The O-line needs to improve as well. It has been a struggle...
  7. James White 2018 Outlook

    Let's address the bolded part. There are certain situations when yes its obvious the patriots are going to pass. All teams are in these situations - this isn't unique to the Pats. Having said that, even if the other team knows its a pass their focus is on Gronk/Edelman and now Gordon. This leaves White 1 on 1 or where he can sit in the soft part of the zone and get checked down. Hence the 14 targets. He caught 10 of them.... when according to you they knew! they were going to throw. I'm not saying Sony is going anywhere, and Sony will get his touches but Brady and BB like what White brings to the table. Only an injury is going to change this. White is a veteran and in some situations its always going to be White. They trust him and Brady will continue to send passes his way. The one thing I expect to change is for White to get more carries than just 2. Now the only question for us owners is, do you take these ludicrous offers like Thielen and I say yes if you have the depth. It isn't a bad idea to shop White if there is an owner in need of an RB and ships you a top WR.
  8. Lamar Miller 2018 Outlook

    As a Miller owner in one league I'm not feeling good about owning him and I backed him all summer saying he would be good. It hasn't worked out. But no way this one guy/pick sinks my team... So strange to say that. A ~4th round pick should bust your team???? Yeah it sucks if you thought he might be your RB2 but there have been enough late RBs that have payed off things shouldn't be that bleak.
  9. Rob Gronkowski 2018 Outlook

    Then trade one. You will get value for either one. #1 rule when owning Gronk - you only roster 1 TE. That is why I have Gronk in a keeper league so I can roster lottery tickets and not have to guess each week at TE. This is a long season and I'm fine being patient with Gronk. He played and did OK, better than last week and it was a short week. Now he gets to rest. Edleman is back and Gordon is a threat. If he stays healthy his outlook is great ROS. Stay patient. If not trade Gronk. I guarantee someone in your league will be glad to take him. A lot of panic for nothing. Aaron Rodgers has this to say:
  10. James White 2018 Outlook

    Tom Brady, the QB for NE disagrees with you. https://patriotswire.usatoday.com/2018/09/24/tom-brady-says-he-wants-more-james-white-so-does-he-want-less-sony-michel/
  11. James White 2018 Outlook

    14 targets. Like I mentioned before, Brady said he "needs more James White". What happened was when the Pats got up they wanted to pound the ball with Sony. No different than when they had Blount and he would pound the ball. I don't own Sony anywhere but man I wish I did now. Yeah this backfield will always be RBBC as James White isn't going anywhere soon and neither is Sony. But both can be fantasy worthy/startable ROS. Again i don't blame anyone if they trade White for a top player getting the most out of his current value but I think I have to hold for now. He's too good. 14 targets!!! I was kind of hoping for a bit more carries but I guess I can't complain.
  12. James White 2018 Outlook

    You could sell and I even thought about it. Guess for the right offer I would. But one has to remember before the last game Brady said he needed more James White. And we got more James White last game. As we all know with NE Rbs things can change on any given night. But he's producing and has the trust of the QB. If you can get something good for him now is definitely the time to shop him. But he's also been a fantastic flex play each week. Man those are some sweet sweet points in ones flex.
  13. Nick Chubb 2018 Outlook

    I think Chubb could be solid long term. But this year, if Hyde got injured, I could see Dukes value going way up especially in the passing game. They trust Duke with pass blocking. Could be a 50/50 split with Duke - which I guess benefits both players. Maybe both are Flex-able.
  14. Ronald Jones 2018 Outlook

    I just hope they figure out their run blocking, for everyone involved. As a Jones owner I do hope he gets some burn but they also need to be better up front. If Jones is a bust I'm fine with that. But the other RBs aren't doing anything either, which is why there is still hope for Jones. Hopefully they get better after the bye and we see an actual run game established.
  15. Derrick Henry 2018 Outlook

    12-105-1 Busts a big outside run 70 yards for a TD late in the 4th qtr. Titans already leading. Gives everyone something to chew on. YPC still low other than the big run, its an outside run, no pass catches but worth starting in your flex with the big TD . Settles nothing. More pain for us Henry owners... See you next week!
