  1. Demaryius Thomas 2018 Season Outlook

    I'll peg him as a mid-level RB2- fairly safe floor, with enough potential to exceed that. How do we feel about Bill Musgrave? He chief'd the Raiders in that awesome 2016 at least.
  2. Alvin Kamara 2018 Season Outlook

    I looked at veteran RB's still unemployed. I'd take Demarco, Alfred Morris, Andre Ellington, and Darkwa all before i'd take Peterson. Morris in particular seems like a perfect fit- he's still 27, and had a pretty good output last year- 4.8 YPC on 115 carries.
  3. Dalvin Cook 2018 Season Outlook

    From Cook was a stat-piling machine at Florida State -- despite dealing with a multitude of injuries. He has 3 shoulder surgeries behind him: one in high school, one in 2014 and another in 2016. And he suffered a hamstring/ankle injury in 2015. He missed just 2 games across his 3-year career, though, showing an ability to play at less than 100% Some people look at this and think he's injury prone. Others see that he barely missed time in college, meaning he played tough, and notch him up a bit. ACL injuries happen to a lot of backs, it shouldn't be a huge deterrent provided he shows well in camp. The shoulder thing isn't something I'll yet ding him for, but if it ever costs him games as a pro, then i'll start to at least consider it as a potential hindrance.
  4. Alvin Kamara 2018 Season Outlook

    Yep, I agree with this as well. Ingram had so much value to their offense. I suppose you could say, thinking long term, they need to increase Kamara's usage to prepare him for life after Ingram.....but who says they wont just add another back for cheaper when Ingram leaves? They could even keep him. I dont see a huge market for him at age 29 next year, and if Brees is playing in 2019, it could be wise to keep both, and take one last run at it.
  5. Alvin Kamara 2018 Season Outlook

    This isn't a crazy take, the issue is touches. Kamara had a season high of 12 carries in a single game last year. If he got the rushing volume the big boys got, he certainly should be challenging for that top spot. Kamara only got 202 touches last year- HALF of what Bell had. 30 pt difference in PPR.
  6. Dalvin Cook 2018 Season Outlook

    Zimmer's a practitioner of coachspeak, so I wont expect any clarity on this before the season starts. We'll have to just guess whether or not Murray has any kind of significant role here. That said, logically, if he was to spell Cook at times, goal line carries make sense. Murray has what, 20 TD's the last two seasons? Nobody knows for sure if he'll keep filling that role, but none of us can feign surprise or angst if we draft Cook, and that's how it plays out.
  7. His insane postseason output should squash any thought of him hitting that wall this year.
  8. Pierre Garcon 2018 Season Outlook

    SF threw the ball a ton last year. They didn't add much on D, so I expect that to recur. Now Garcon to me becomes a great sneaky option to be top 10 in WR targets. Goodwin isn't a volume guy. Kittle has yet to break out. McKinnon surely will get a ton of looks, but that's it. Short of the 2nd rounder or Taylor making a huge leap....its Garcon's show. He'll be mine at least once.
  9. I can't imagine Matthews getting the mind-meld that Brady and Edelman have, maybe in time, but Matthews is more likely to be cut than he is likely to get above a backup role here. His dead cap is just 170K. I think Matthews's ceiling is the Amendola role- makes a few plays now and then, depending on the matchup maybe he's targeted heavily, but he'll disappear a lot.
  10. Lamar Miller 2018 Season Outlook

    Another point on Foreman- if he's able to bounce back, we're all pretty damn sure he's taking over this backfield, right? He's the RB of the future. So, is there not a scenario in which he's treated delicately to start the season because of this? Why put him out there full speed now, potentially causing setbacks and ruining the cheap labor they hope to get out of him down the road? Not saying this will happen, just saying it could. They can have him take the reigns in 2019 and 2020 when its certainly time to cut Miller, and if they wreck him now by forcing him in before he's healed, they'll jeopardize that
  11. Lamar Miller 2018 Season Outlook

    There's plenty of players who never bounced back from tearing their Achilles tendon, young and old. Some come back full speed, some return but can't find their old form (Arian Foster comes to mind), and some don't come back at all. Time will tell, we gotta watch Foreman in preseason, if he's able to get any action there.
  12. LeSean McCoy 2018 Season Outlook

    Fantasy wise- nothing more.
  13. LeSean McCoy 2018 Season Outlook

    I think I said this before on this thread, might be a repeat, but he's probably now Colts Frank Gore, just a little younger. Gore still hovered around top RB2 status in 2015 and 2016 just by surviving and getting touches. You can lower expectations on McCoy, and expect him not to finish in the top 10, and that's proper assessment, but dropping him off the map entirely is missing out. Granted, if he'll cost you your first overall pick, let him go, those days are gone. But if its the mid third in a PPR league, and your RB options are slipping to the non Barkley rookies and McCoy is still there, pull the trigger.
  14. Emanuel Sanders 2018 Outlook

    Another thread I thank you all for, as i've not paid attention to Sanders at all yet. Lots of good logic here to see him bouncing back a bit. For all the joshing I've thrown at Keenum, i do think he's stable, at least, and that's a big help. He seems like a good WR3 if I can get him there. Questions about the rest of the pass catching corps- is Jake Butt expected to start at TE? Thinking he's an improvement over......well, everyone since Julius Thomas. And I'd guess Sutton is better than Latimer, Fowler, that white guy with the long hair, and all the other attempts at WR depth they've had. Hopefully as they grow into their roles, they're good enough to open up the offense, but not yet ready to take primary roles so Sanders and DT still have bounceback value.
