  6. Amari Cooper 2018 Outlook

    Nobody should have drafted Amari Cooper at his ADP if they were going to waiver after a single bad week in the 2018 season.
  7. Saquon Barkley 2018 Outlook

    On that long run, he created all of that against one of the best front 7s in the league ... And despite only 2 receptions, he was targeted 7+ times. Nobody else is going to have the talent the Jags defense has ... Barkley is going to have some big games this season, the type of games that can single handedly win you your week.

    So he's getting 2 innings on Tuesday then he's going to be on a 5 day rotation where he gets 1 more inning every start .. 2 innings 9-11 3 innings 9-16 4 innings 9-21 5 innings 9-26 So he's basically a 3 category pitcher (wont get "W") who is going to provide 14 innings tops over the next 23 days.
  9. I turned off the game, so many commercials...
  10. Le'Veon Bell 2018 Outlook

    haha i'd be pissed too ... these guys have been busting their a** in the heat all summer and he just walks up to the office and picks up his check takes a seat on the bench and watches the game in shorts while having the waterboy fetch him some gatorade ..
  11. Le'Veon Bell 2018 Outlook

    Bell is 1 player, an entire platoon is 3+ guys. It's like fantasy. 3 RBs can match Bell's production, but Bell only uses 1 roster slot. Besides the above point, Bell being a target-hog in the passing game, while being effective enough of a RB to be in on 1st and 2nd downs, allows the offense to be so much more dynamic and versatile as a whole. One of the big downfalls of a running back by committee approach is that it tips off the defense to the likely play call when a satellite back vs a 1st and 2nd down back is in the game. So even when Bell is NOT getting a carry, or not getting a reception, his mere presence in the lineup opens a lot of things up for the entire offense as a whole. Bell is a special player, capable of moving the chains efficiently, while leading the league in looks/snaps/carries/etc.

    I disagree with this. His holdout all camp last year made it pretty clear he was unhappy with playing year to year on a franchise tag. To add to that point, we are getting second hand information heavily infused with bias from both sides of the situation so we have to read between the lines a little and come to our own conclusions. The NFLPA is very weak, the owners have all the say, and i believe this is a situation in which Pittsburgh thought Bell would eventually cave to the pressure and take whatever scraps they were willing to give, like all players who hold out eventually do. I place the blame on ownership for being tight pocketed, and overly confident in the situation. Every NFL franchise has become prodigiously more valuable over the last couple of decades...a lot of the richest men/billionaires in the world lists are littered with NFL owners as a result.The fact that one of the game's most established stars, in the prime of their career, is sitting out the season, with no guaranteed contract at this point, is a real shame/failure on part of both the NFLPA and the owners in the NFL.
  13. Saquon Barkley 2018 Outlook

    This isn't baseball or basketball this is the running back position in fantasy football ... Rookie RBs transition very nicely, even ones with half the prospect pedigree Barkley has. The RB position is so important to fantasy success that anybody projected to get ANY snaps/carries/looks is rosterable in even the shallowest of formats. Working with that premise, when you take a guy with Barkley's pedigree, who is already a locked in #1 on the depth chart, who is a lock to get 20+ touches a game, you can see why even despite never taking an NFL snap, he becomes a safe selection in the first round.

    Does it get more "proven" than Barkley at the RB position? (all those top guys have major question marks right now). He dominated a tough conference in college His combine measurables were all off the charts He was the #2 overall pick and a consensus top 5 draft talent from every reputable source In recent years there's a massive correlation between rookie RBs and fantasy success (especially ones that are taken early in the NFL draft -- usually means the team intends to build the offense around them and give them tons of looks) Barkley fell to me with the #8 pick in a very recent PPR league and i was shocked I would have been willing to take him anywhere after Gurley/Johnson/Zeke (as early as #4 overall)
