  1. Doug Baldwin 2018 Season Outlook

    Who cares in standard? If you don't get AB or Hopkins there's really no game changing WR out there. I'd love to start RB RB and if Baldwin happens to be my WR1 then I can live with that, if I'm going Fournette Howard or Zeke Ingram, for example.

    What WR would you take ahead of him in standard? Mid WR2 seems low. Where rosters stand right now... I'd take the following before Baldwin. AB, Hopkins, ODB, Adams, Thomas, Julio, AJG, Evans. I could see Keenan if you're feeling risky.

    Eh. Dez is the only one that scares me. Graham was a red zone magnet last year and a big reason Baldwin was relatively down. Since Dez is basically a TD dependent TE at this stage in his career, he can really damage Baldwin's upside. Maybe Seattle takes a stud wr prospect, but this class isn't really that great. And none of the other FAs anymore are any good. I expect we'll have clarity much sooner than August.

    Got a feeling they're gonna sign Dez and ruin this party.

    I could split hairs but seems close enough. Baldwin should finish top 12 easy, top 10 with any luck, top 6 with good luck.

    I don't think Marlin even implied that the offense will be better. Only that Baldwin's opportunity is going from good to gargantuan.

    This explains a lot...
  9. Joe Mixon 2018 Season Outlook

    Bernard is the perfect handcuff and all Mixon owners would be wise to own Gio as well. Bernard has been a super reliable fantasy RB every time he's gotten the chance to be the guy in Cincinnati. Someone provided good stats above. Also look back to 2014 (I think it was) when Hill took over at the end of the year and was dominant -- Gio got off to a great start that year before getting injured (will never forget when he got pile-driven into the ground against the Colts and -- that one hit ruined the season for Gio owners and made the season for Hill owners). Gio is simply to small to carry the load week in week out, year in year out. But he is more than capable of delivering RB1 production for stretches. He is a good runner, and obviously can catch. I'm always looking for RBs with attractive insurance policies -- a backup who can deliver close to the same production, who comes really cheap. Gio is maybe the best. Compare to Henry as a cuff for Murray last year, who is more than capable but way too expensive; or compare to James Conner for Pittsburgh who is cheap enough but less than capable.

    Even with Hill and the s--- O-line last year he was going in the third round. He's not a secret. With Hill gone and new O-linemen, you can bet that every average Joe fantasy player is going to read some kind of article about how he's the next breakout, and you're going to have to pay a premium for him.

    238 last year? That can't be real can it?
  12. LeSean McCoy 2018 Season Outlook

    Plus they traded a tackle, and another guy retired, too, I believe. A good OL has completely fallen apart over the last several weeks. This could be the worst offense in football. No QB, awful WR corps, OL is gone, woof.
  13. 2018 Rookie RB Class

    Speed's the last thing I care about. Breakaway homerun speed is icing on cake. Give me quickness, sudenness, lateral agility. Bell, DJ, Kamara are all conventionally "slow". Zeke and Fournette have that breakaway speed (AP did), but it's the other things they do that make them great. Anyways, if 'quickness' is a knock on Kelly then I don't see it. He's very smooth in his cuts from what I see.
  14. Andrew Luck 2018 Outlook

    The fact that he needs / wants to change his throwing motion is what stood out to me. Tough to do for a gun slinger.

    That thread from Dr. Chao seems devastating. This feels eerily similar to Jamaal Charles pre-2016. He was coming off an ACL tear. Everyone said he was gonna be fine. Everyone recovers from those. But little signs here and there throughout the summer led you to believe that there was something else to the whole story that we were never gonna know; something just not quite right inside that dude's body, and he wouldn't be the same.
