  1. Nelson Agholor 2018 Season Outlook

    With Agholor being such a productive slot guy, his role is set. Wallace shouldnt detract from his snap count. Time will tell if he draws more looks since he'll likely be an upgrade on Torrey Smith, but I think they'll use Wallace just the same. He's still pretty fast, so he's a better lid lifter and could be open more often.
  2. Jake Butt 2018 Season Outlook

    Yeah, I'll be checking out plenty of Butt myself as well.
  3. Jake Butt 2018 Season Outlook

    I think most agree that he's Denver's most talented TE, and other than their two vets, the target share is wide open. One can do worse as a deep league TE stash, for sure. if he's playing in preseason and gets to line up with the starters in that typical game 3 dress rehearsal, i'm putting him on my radar in my deep league.
  4. Buffalo Bills 2018 Season Outlook

    LOL, and maybe they can trade for 3 or 4 of Dallas's linemen.
  5. 2018 WR Rankings and Discussion

    High risk guy, but high reward as well. There's no way he turns half his catches into TD's like he did those few weeks with Watson last year, but if that pair is healthy in 2018, with a full camp to practice together, they've got massive potential. In that tiering ranking the guy above posted, I love Fuller in the early 30's. Bust potential is there, but i see it in all the guys in that range, and I feel great about his ceiling.
  6. Buffalo Bills 2018 Season Outlook

    Eh Peterman played maybe 5 quarters, but did hit KB for one of his TD's (that crazy snow game). I expect Jeremy Kerley to catch 55-60 passes in this offense..........which is terrifying I know. 7 yard catches on 3rd and 12, and garbage time dumpoffs, etc. But, he'll have a very low YPR and i dont expect many TD's, so he's not really draftable.
  7. Buffalo Bills 2018 Season Outlook

    All I'm trying to say is that the "someone has to catch passes there" theory is somewhat bunk. If you like Benjamin otherwise, go for it. As i waffled on my own POV of him, I was only at first finding interest in the belief that he's got to be targeted, I still think he's a good player. He played tough last year and got hosed out of a couple TD's, and being traded midseason didnt help I'm sure. I'd feel better about his fit with Josh Allen if he had more speed to snag a few moon shot deep balls. I'm waffling even as I type this, i'll try to settle on this. If McCarron starts the season, I'll consider KB once as my WR4. I do live in Western NY though, so its likely a homer takes him higher than any reasonable person would
  8. Nelson Agholor 2018 Season Outlook

    Love him as a WR4- plug and play guy if I need him. One has to feel confident in Philly's offense and their ability to produce volume. Alshon looks as though he might miss some time in camp, and could start slow. TD regression could happen, but i think he'll be fine as long as Wentz stays productive. Ertz and Jeffery got their TD's last year and there was still enough for Agholor to get 8. If Wentz does suffer TD regression though, i'd expect Agholor to struggle for red zone looks before Ertz or Jeffery.
  9. Buffalo Bills 2018 Season Outlook

    So i debated this yesterday with a couple guys after thinking a little more on Benjamin's value. I'm now firmly DND. Here's why. Next to the "but he's a starter" defense for an ugly looking draft pick is the "they have to throw to somebody" defense. I've fallen victim to both, i'm sure we all have, but I remembered this argument for Torrey Smith in 2016, as what appeared to be the only option in the 49ers stank offense (the year Gabbert started 4 or 5 games). The results: https://www.pro-football-reference.com/teams/sfo/2016.htm Perhaps unironically, two of the WR's on that team currently are on Buffalo's roster (Kerley and Streater). Kerley seems like the frontrunner for slot duties, and Streater I guess was going to make last year's team if he didnt get hurt. At this point, Buffalo has to hope there's a good list of first round QB's, so they can trade down and get 2 or 3 extra early picks. They will have a ton of cap space after this year too, but jesus, they'll need nearly an entire offense. Multiple WR's, multiple RB's, probably every OL position except for LT (Dawkins should be fine) and I expect Clay to be in his final season as a Bill as well.
  10. Chris Ivory 2018 Season Outlook

    On that note, if healthy and playing 3 downs, Edmunds is an IDP stud I'm sure. Safeties too- Hyde and Poyer should play a ton of snaps and rack up tackles.
  11. Davante Adams 2018 Season Outlook

    Was mentioned in the debate earlier- me saying no other WR will need to have a role, and therefore Adams is sure to see more targets. The counter was that Cobb will be off the field on 2 WR sets, so someone else has to have a role.
  12. Davante Adams 2018 Season Outlook

    Keeping an open mind about it- can't take it personal if someone disagrees with you. Im not sure why these always go off the rails. This also reminds me of the Amari Cooper thread, where I'm in essence the RMJ_12 who does not get the hype. Its all good. One factor i've considered that maybe changes the narrative a bit that nobody's mentioned- the TE depth they have now. Graham is Graham. Lewis isn't really a huge threat but he's at least a decent player and I wonder if they could use more 2TE sets as a result. Kendricks also is a decent backup. Wondering if that's the answer to the riddle of where the targets go.
  13. Davante Adams 2018 Season Outlook

    Serious question- are we sure Cobb's not playing in 2 WR sets? I think he did back in 2014, which was a Nelson dominated year, with no James Jones and rookie Davante Adams. Since then, there has always been two of of those three healthy and locked in to a role. This year, only one established outside WR exists. Who's got PFF or FO data on where Cobb lines up, and how often GB goes 3 wide or more?
  14. Buffalo Bills 2018 Season Outlook

    Starting to wonder if indeed Kelvin Benjamin is a sneaky value after all. Not expecting him to have a 1000 yard 10 TD season or anything, but he's a forgotten man in drafts it seems. Question on KB- does anyone bump him up if the QB competition falls a certain way? Wondering if people who are afraid of Allen feel a little better if McCarron starts the year, or if its moot. Also want to add that I think their defense is actually good. Once they figured out some personnel issues, they finished real strong, and were amazing in the playoff game. Yes, it was against Jacksonville, but those same Jags then went on to crush the Steelers and gave the Pats a run until they wussed out in the 4th quarter. Now, they've upgraded ILB in a big way, got a couple new DT's, added depth to their already strong secondary, and maybe Vontae Davis and Trent Murphy are improvements too.
  15. Buffalo Bills 2018 Season Outlook

    I dont know that i'd ever just try to target one offense to stream against. There's always going to be many bad teams to choose from, and some defenses are just putrid and will never pay off against any offense.
