    Gilly was ineffective, Rex got hurt. Wasn't hard to predict Blount last year. Not gonna over think this one.

    The Patriots are always at or near the top. Again sorry I don't have the source on it but it's true.
  3. Derrick Henry 2017 Outlook

    I can't find the stats, but I know the Patriots run the ball in the red zone more than any other team. Hoping that their OC McDaniels takes that with him wherever he goes.

    Henry got 11 carries and the Titans got blown out. Hopefully Henry's Cleats leaves for the next year now.
  5. 2018 Titans vs Patriots Playoff Pre-Game Thread

    Brady is going to carve this week secondary up. There will be no stopping them. But the Titans offense matches up well against the Patriots defense too, I think. A turnover or an off day from Brady and the Titans could keep it close. They struggled to put away a bad Texans team last year.

    If they fly aggressively into the line of scrimmage than the Titans are going to need to be ready with and able to execute play action this weekend. That's Mariota's strength. I'm not saying the Titans will win or even cover but it feels like they match up very well on offense against New England's defense. On the other side, Brady picks apart zones, is great against the blitz, and that's really Dick Lebeau's bread and butter. They have a strong run D but weak pass D. So Pats O matches up well against Titans D too. Pats may end up winning by 2 touchdowns but I think the game will be closer than the final score would indicate.

    The center, whose job it is to block, missed an assignment, and no one bats an eye. Henry, whose job it is to get downhill and dominate, (maybe) missed a blocking assignment, and everyone loses their minds! In all honesty I have no idea who missed the assignment, I just find the conversation amusing.

    I can't recall the source, but I do remember reading that Reid took playcalling back over this game, or was at least heavily involved in it. Regardless, if Nagy did own it, and wasn't giving the ball to the NFL rushing leader when trying to close out the game...... it falls on the Head Coach to walk over to the playcaller and say "RUN THE ******** BALL." The buck stops with Reid.

    The term 'exotic smash mouth' has been beaten to death. All it means is a downhill running, play action pass team, with a few read options sprinkled in. The pace of play has always been slow, though. The offense is fine for fantasy purposes, if you own the bell cow RB and he's actually physically capable of doing the job. It truly features the running back, and they have a good line. The disconnect between coaches and fantasy owners started when we wanted Henry to be the next big thing. We were hasty. The gap widened at the end of last year when Henry began to out produce Murray. It turned into a chasm this year when it was finally crystal clear that Henry was better. There was no reason that we should have waited longer. Mularkey truly was stubborn in his commitment to Murray. Time solves a lot of problems.

    Franchise playoff record means quite a bit when Eddie George is part of your franchise history. Hope they give him even more opportunity in New England. That Pats D can be run on, and the Titans will need to control the clock if they want any chance of winning. Thrilling to finally watch the breakout. All that's left is for Tennessee to cut Murray.
  11. Early 2018 Top 20 Rankings

    Adams, Julio, Tyreek, and AJG all have an argument for that 4 spot with MT, I think. Hopkins, AB, and Beckham probably a safe top 3.
  12. Derrick Henry 2017 Outlook

    I might be holding Miller and Ajayi against Drake, but as a rule I'll try to avoid depending on Dolphins RBs. Got Drake right after Mixon for now, though, and that's just my humble opinion. Drake looks damn good though.
  13. Derrick Henry 2017 Outlook

    Eric Decker had more fantasy points than Julio yesterday but you're not drafting based on one week. You know that, though. Slow your roll a little bit.

    Tier 1: Gurley, Zeke, Bell, and DJ I define this tier as elite league winning players. Tier 2: Barkley (if Colts), Kamara, Ingram, Fournette, Cook, Gordon. This tier is clear fantasy RB1s with a feasible opportunity to enter tier 1. I think Henry belongs in this tier. He has the physical tools and a great O line. Hope the situation / offense as a whole improve. Obviously, they will need to dump Murray. You could take any of these players in the first round. Tier 3: Hunt, McCoy, Howard, Freeman, Hyde, Mixon. Low end RB1, high end RB2 types. It's possible to see them entering tier 1, but improbable. Possible someone sneaks into the first round in 12-man standard drafts but probably belong after the turn. That's just my reading right now with an entire offseason yet that could change everything.
