    The easiest way to win a league is to load up on the not sexy picks. They’re always going far lower than they should.
  2. 2018 RB Rankings

    He is the safest outside the top 4. Fournette, Barkley, and Kamara definitely have a higher ceiling but Gordon is as safe as it gets. Fournette has injury risk, Barkley is a rookie and already nursing a nagging injury, and Kamara is in a likely committee. Gordon has no real concern other than efficiency. Something Chargers clearly don’t care about since they’ll feed him regardless.
  3. Odell Beckham Jr. 2018 Outlook

    People seem to forget how damn good some players are. We saw the same thing happen with AP after his injury. Once in a while a player comes along that it doesn’t matter what is around him he is going to set the world on fire. Odell is one of them and so is DJ. Don’t make the mistake of overthinking either.

    The NFL is a joke of a league. Run by snakes. They can go f--- off. Not kindly.
  5. Robert Kelley 2018 Outlook

    I rather draft talented players that just need a shot later on than flat out JAGs in a decent situation.

    Taylor loves to go deep but alright...
  7. Few things of interest to note: 1. Seattle got a trade offer for Penny after selecting him 2. They were going to draft him at 18 if they were unable to trade back 3. Carroll said he is going to be a 3 down back already. “He is also going to be a three down back for us and he can do everything. He needs to work on his pass protection which he was not asked to do a lot of. But he will give us the ability to play him on all downs and that versatility is really big.” From a reality perspective, i'm not a fan of the pick. However, I think he will have the second best season for a rookie RB. Seattle line isn't as terrible as people think going into this year and outside of Barkley he will have the most opportunity if not just as much. Also, I think the notion that Carroll ruins RBs is full bull****. He really really wants to have a RB that can be a bellcow but no one has been capable of doing so last few years. If they were willing to draft him at 18 im sure they think he is a stud and will get a ton of work.
  8. Derrick Henry 2018 Outlook

    That looks like a normal block.
  9. Kareem Hunt 2018 Outlook

    It’s just damn hard for me to come around. Maybe it’s because I’ve owned Kelce the last 3 years and have wanted to smack Reid with a bat on a near weekly basis.
  10. Best Snake Draft Position 2018

    Cook + Thomas is ok but you can potentially get Gordon + Thomas, Gordon + Howard, Gordon + ODB, Fournette + Gordon, Fournette + Thomas, and etc. All of which are substantially better than Hilton + Mixon. You basically compared one of the worst scenarios on the 1/2 turn to one of the best on the 2/3. I can say you can get Gordon + Hopkins which is 10x better than Baldwin + Henry.

    Half of his throws are to ghosts as well.
  12. David Johnson 2018 Outlook

    Watching him run in the preseason makes me want to move him up to #1 overall again. I understand it’s the preseason but it’s a reminder that he is the best all around running back in the game, including over Bell. The size, balance, power, agility, and vision is incredible. He’s already everything people want Barkley to be.
  13. Dalvin Cook 2018 Outlook

    I rather have Gordon, Fournette, Hunt, CMC (in PPR), and Howard (in standard) over Cook. The probability that one of them isn’t there is low. If by some chance they aren’t there I’ll take either Hopkins and ODB + Thomas. I somewhat liked Cook until recently but with all the recent news plus his injury history there is no way on gods green earth I’ll waste a top 12-15 pick on him.
  14. Dalvin Cook 2018 Outlook

    I can’t put him over Hopkins mainly because Hopkins seems to have a slight talent edge but is also on an offense that is more centered around him than Thomas.
  15. Dalvin Cook 2018 Outlook

    That can be said for most players in the second round being taken over Thomas. He had 1,200 yards and over 100 catches in a year where Drew Brees had a huge statistical outlier in the negative in most categories. Even if Thomas doesn't improve and build a better connection with Brees (which almost every WR tends to do) we can expect him to increase his production fairly significantly with Brees regressing to the mean alone. Considering he is almost certainly going to get better and build a connection and Brees is almost certainly going to go up in every category the probability of Thomas finishing as the top WR in football isn't lower than anyone minus Brown and maybe Hopkins.

    I never understand why people create a narrative without at least attempting to research if it is true.
  17. Josh Gordon 2018 Outlook

    Allen Robinson is 24 and after an incredible season had a bad season and still managed 900 yards before an injury next season. Gordon broke out and then didn’t play for any significant period due to offield issues. He is also very young and still has time. I understand how one can conclude they are a one hit wonder, however the notion isn’t very accurate when evaluating their careers. At least as of now.
  18. Josh Gordon 2018 Outlook

    My sources have confirmed that Dez Bryant was in fact framing Gordon.
  19. Derrick Henry 2018 Outlook

    Well, if we are talking about RBs going in that range I rather have Shady, Miller, and R. Freeman over both. So the chance of me owning either of them is very unlikely.
  20. Derrick Henry 2018 Outlook

    Wouldn't Ajayi be a better pick? Mainly because he plays for a better offense and the best line in football. I see them getting fairly similar work but Ajayi will have an easier time being efficient with it.
  21. 2018 NFL Preseason Week 2 Game Thread

    Is this a 2 QB and 2 PPR league?
  22. Alvin Kamara 2018 Outlook

    I don’t see him having no ceiling. I can see extreme inconsistency though once Ingram comes back. Dumping games under 5 points week after week to blow up for 25 once would be a bust as far as I’m concerned.
  23. Alvin Kamara 2018 Outlook

    The notion that two injuries can be compared side by side, especially unpredictable ones like Hamstring, is borderline asinine.
  24. Josh Gordon 2018 Outlook

    This is true as well. This isn’t the same as the old Dez.
