  1. I just saw this Pack. Was way distracted today. Hope you filled this out and are busy compiling rosters as we speak!!
  2. 2018 QB Rankings

    This thinking is not without parallel. With an experienced game manager already rostered, KC made Mahomes a 1st round selection, and promptly sat him his rookie year. Smith did quite fine, and he ended up a valuable trade chip. Sure Mahomes wasn't selected #1 overall, but Mayfield is no closer to NFL ready than Mahomes was, and Taylor's TD/pick ratio and elite legs suggest that he is capable of operating an offense now loaded with talent just fine. If he just does what he's been doing his entire career (he'll likely do better), odds are good the Browns will win games and Taylor will keep Mayfield comfortably marinating. Dorsey won't mind building Taylor's credibility, and hence trade value, for a season. I don't see any better freebies than Taylor.

    Damning is more fun though.

    Still . . .

    From RW today: "The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel's Michael Cohen spotted Randall Cobb wearing a walking boot on his right foot." Not a problem?
  7. Greg Olsen 2018 Season Outlook

    Will anything really change ever in Carolina while Cam runs the show? I don't buy the notion that Turner and/or any number of roster changes will prompt Cam to modify his tendencies much. He's always had a strong connection with Olsen. Why would that not continue in 2018?
  8. Tyler Lockett 2018 Season Outlook

    You said it. Lockett is a good player, and I am talking eye test, not box scores. The kid was a stud coming out of K. State. Loved his tape. He has had two seasons now to grow into assuming a more significant role. Talent, preparation, and opportunity are coming togethet for this guy. Projecting a big jump in production for any player is a bit of a long shot. You'll guess wrong more times than you'll guess right. But at current prices, Lockett is a good bet to my mind.
  9. Anthony Miller 2018 Season Outlook

    His tape screams competitiveness. The next Steve Smith, Sr. As much as I love Miller's game (check the early pages of this thread, I have been a big fan from the start), he is a WW watch for me in redraft. It is too much to ask that he breakout right away, but I'll be watching closely for signs that the stars, somehow, are beginning to line up sooner than expected.
  10. Sammy Watkins 2018 Season Outlook

    And Mahomes has to do his part. It is super significant that Mahomes had last season to marinate before being thrown into the fire, but make no mistake, he has quite a challenge ahead of him as a red-shirt rookie. Watkins truthers need two surprises to cash in -- Watkins has to remake himself on a new team AND Mahomes has to skip the typical learning curve and play gang busters right away. Sure, stranger things have happened, so don't let my simple-mindedness spoil the party.
  11. Josh Doctson 2018 Season Outlook

    I have him ranked higher than most too. He passes the eye test for me. He has a few years under his belt now. Smith is plenty capable. All the ingredients are there.
  12. Derrick Henry 2018 Outlook

    In PPR, 220 pts would make Henry a top 12 RB using last year's stats. I agree though that he needs some luck, and faith from LaFleur, to get there.
  13. Jameis Winston 2018 Season Outlook

    I'm anxious to ride a QB trash heap of Winston and Taylor to a league championship. A brief suspension is perfect.
  14. Derrick Henry 2018 Outlook

    The big wild card is LaFleur. He has no ties to Henry, or Lewis, for that matter. Does he love Henry's skill set, which is unique, to say the least? Henry is playing on a super cheap contract, so LaFleur would get no heat if he (LaFleur) were to go away from him. OTOH, some believe that LaFleur has tendencies and capabilities similar to Shanahan and McVay, because all three come from the same coaching tree. If LaFleur sees Henry as a big time asset, he'll likely be able to set up the offense to utilize him very successfully. If someone has access to LaFleur's brain, please stop by this thread and share what you've learned.

    Mariota is certainly a candidate for a handful of scores on the ground (he had 5 last year). Those zone read runs actually loosen things up for Henry IMO. Walker only chipped in 3 scores last season. With no other real RZ pass weapon (unless Lewis becomes one), there will be more than enough scores available to bloat Henry's point production.
