  1. 2018 NBA Offseason and Free Agency Thread

    Reggie Miller said he doesn’t see Lebron going to the Lakers because he won’t want to follow Kobes shadow. Nothing ground breaking and it’s been a somewhat common thought but it is an interesting point. Yes, most people will claim Lebron > Kobe but it’s irrelevant to the point of Lebron potentially not wanting to try and follow legacies making the Clippers an option.

    He was potentially the safest QB in the NFL last season. Thielen was a safe option due to the routes he ran.
  3. 2018 Biggest Busts

    Diggs has shown that he is a good WR including last year when there was numerous times he was running wide open but Keenum was locked into Thielen.
  4. 2018 NBA Draft Discussion Thread

    Potentially but there is a reason Porter dropped. Those discs can be a serious concern. That being said, he still dropped way too low. He was a likely first overall pick so there's no way he should be outside the top 10 even with the injury. CLE should have taken him.
  5. Kawhi Leonard 2018-19 Season Thread

    I’d say he dipped because he played with WB.
  6. Tyler Lockett 2018 Season Outlook

    Obviously there’s a chance but it’s not likely nor do I think the examples in the article are very good. Bottom line is, Seattle really needs a big target and Marshall fits the role well. It’s hard to exactly answer the question because it’s hard to see Marshall’s mental and physical state. However, I do see him on the team once the season roles around because of necessity. He isn’t a threat to Lockett all too much though.
  7. 2018 Biggest Busts

    New England has shown the ability to support an RB1 numerous times and with Michels style, Brady’s age, and even lack of competition on the depth chart there is a chance Michel can have a stellar season. Prior to last year Cooper had 2 1,000 yard seasons go start his career and has shown ability to produce. New coach can help him. By the way, those two are the two players I’m least confident in from that list and are actually DND for me because I don’t like them. Again, the quesiton was based on ceiling not on how likely they are to produce or what their projected output is.

    I’ll ask everyone to back up a point when they are making a claim. It should be common sense to support an opinion with facts or at the least reason but you seem to expect people to take you for your word because...reasons.
  9. 2018 Biggest Busts

    How about you provide an explanation instead of your typical arrogant replies? Value to the discussion would be appreicated. For the record, I don't particuarly like all the guys I listed. The question was who can return round one value. Based on opportunity and talent, all of those guys have ability to do so.

    It’s in a matter of correlation with ADP. It was clear Keenum had a thing for him that may not translate with Cousins.

    Players going in round 4-6 on FFC that can be first round picks next season: Penny Michel Robinson Jones Freeman Cooper
  12. Josh Gordon 2018 Season Outlook

    Your refusal to even acknowledge the age factor is ridiculous. He’s going to be 35. WRs tend to fall off a cliff at that age.
  13. Saquon Barkley 2018 Season Outlook

  14. David Johnson 2018 Season Outlook

    He would have bounced outside and lost 5 yards
  15. Josh Gordon 2018 Season Outlook

    So ceilings are irrelevant now. Well alright... By the way, history shows a pretty sharp decline (cliff) in the position once they hit 35. So there’s that slight problem for Fitzgerald.
  16. 2018 WR Rankings and Discussion

    He can command targets all he wants. He can even enjoy is 8/50/0 games all he wants. Doesn’t mean he’s a threat to Gordon.
  17. Josh Gordon 2018 Season Outlook

    What the hell does Fitz have to do with Gordon?
  18. Josh Gordon 2018 Season Outlook

    I fail to see how last years PPG fully determines this years rankings.
  19. Josh Gordon 2018 Season Outlook

    Everyone is a gamble in fantasy football. Yes, some more than others. However, in correlation to ADP I don’t find Gordon’s red flags to outweigh that of most but his ceiling is much higher as is his median. I like Fitz and I don’t see why you can’t have both. They’re an incredible combo if you go RB/RB which is what I find a lot of drafts looking like.
  20. Josh Gordon 2018 Season Outlook

    I currently have Gordon ranked around 18-20 overall. There are a lot of myths surrounding Gordon and I hope they continue to knock down his value as the draft approaches. Let's just examine the main 3. 1. Gordon is not a safe pick due to off field concerns. This is slightly short sighted. Looking at history with no context isn't the way to go about the situation. In fact, it was quite clear even last August that this isn't the same man and it is even more clear now. He is a gym rat that has demonstrated clear change unlike his previous stints away from suspension. A little research into the situation will show his suspension risk is along the lines of someone like Bell who is in the conversation for first overall. 2. Gordon is not a good pick due to his QB Sammy Watkins was on pace for 1,300 yards and 11 TDs in 2015 with the same QB. Now that same QB is in a better offense. Yes, A to B comparisons tend to be flawed but it demonstrates the ability of Taylor to not only support a WR1 but a top 5 WR. Gordon is more gifted than Watkins and is in an offense perfectly suited for him to succeed. This directly leads into argument 3 against Gordon. 3. Landry and others will take away from his success Landry is not a great NFL WR and I don't understand how the narrative that he is keeps getting pushed. He is a good WR but not special to the extent to take away from Gordon. In fact, he will complement him. He has been a 5-6 TD guy and hovering around 1,000 yards his entire career with no threats to him on offense while also playing in an offense designed to benefit his needs. Doesn't scream like a threat to me. Gordon is mostly a deep threat with huge TD upside and Landry is no threat to that. Neither is anyone on the team. In fact, you'd have a better argument rephrasing that to "Landry and others will help benefit Gordons success." He can destroy defenses over the top and rack up huge plays and red zone targets while guys like Landry and Johnson do the "dirty work" per-say. I understand Gordon has in large part been a living meme and a hype train but his return to stardom is going to be very real. The red flags are minimal and the signs pointing to a huge season are imminent.
  21. David Johnson 2018 Season Outlook

    So he is definitely riskier but everything else is a maybe? Huh... Also, no he won’t see a similar workload to Johnson. Johnson will get far more opportunities from every aspect as he is their only option.
  22. 2018 WR Rankings and Discussion

    Landry being tossed around as a threat to Gordon is ridiculously over blown. He couldn’t even put up 1,000 yards last year with very little threat. Neither of the guys you list are any threat to Gordon due to the type of game he plays. If if you don’t see how pass attempts go down I don’t know what to tell you. How about the fact that they invested a first in a RB and despite what people think invested heavily in the line and actually have a solid line. Everything is pointing to more rushes and fewer attempts. Seem to be a little unaware of the situation in Seattle mate. 5 wins is a joke.
  23. 2018 WR Rankings and Discussion

    Tyrod had Watkins playing at top 5 WR levels and he is no Gordon. Tyrod is a vey solid QB that can easily support a WR1. In fact, there are benefits to not having an elite QB as demonstrated with Hopkins. As for Baldwin, I don’t like the inconsistency and Seattle should see passing attempts go down about 10% this year.
