  1. Devonta Freeman 2017 Season Outlook

    For three years now, folks on this board have been predicting the demise of Devonta Freeman. He had only nine carries, and the Falcons only ran the ball 18 times. This is not a trend. Week 1: 12 of 21 total carries Week 2: 19 of 27 carries Week 3: 21 of 28 carries Week 4: 18 of 29 carries Yes, the Falcons will not go 16-0, and sometimes they will play in games where they go away from the run. Like every team.
  2. Tanner Gentry 2017 Outlook

    John Fox seems to have a vendetta against developing young players, so I wouldn't expect significant snaps this week.
  3. 12 team league, .5 PPR Debating between WR Cooper Kupp vs. SEA or WR Jaron Brown at PHI. As a note, I am starting WR Larry Fitzgerald at PHI. Why I would start Cooper: the non-Sherman receiver should get good volume. Seahawks strangely struggle on the road frequently. Cooper risks: volume could go elsewhere (Robert Woods), offense could get bogged down. Why I would start Brown: great target volume the last three games, AZ running game isn't effective, should be a relatively pass-happy affair on both sides and a high scoring game. Brown risks: I already own Larry Fitzgerald and am starting him, so I would be cannibalizing somewhat. John Brown represents a target stealing risk, but I feel safer seeing Jaron's heavy snap counts. I think I'm leaning towards Jaron as a safer play. What say you? Appreciate your help and WHIR.

  5. Rashard Higgins 2017 Season Outlook

    Six targets on the day, second to Britt's 10. He also played 52-of-77 snaps, equal to Britt's playing time. Results weren't there, but seems like a pretty clear hold. Would be curious to hear from anyone who viewed the game if they gleaned any insight.
  6. Going to use my waiver to attempt to pick up one of these two WRs. 12 teams, 17 roster spots, .5 PPR. 4 keepers per season, UDFA are slotted as 17th round pick for the next year. Not too concerned about that with these guys, but you never know. My current receivers are AJ Green, Larry Fitzgerald, Jeremy Maclin, Cooper Kupp. I am leaning Higgins as I have to wonder whether the Jets will stick with McCown. What say you?
  7. Who wins this? Whir

    Gordon side. Great situation for Gordon, unknown volume for Mixon but safe to assume he can be the bellcow. Fournette stuck in a bad/unknown offense, and call me skeptical on Lynch making it through the season with high volume injury free.
  8. 12 teams, 17 roster spots, .5 ppr. I own Blount as my fourth RB (Freeman, Hyde, Anderson). Considering dropping Burkhead to own Smallwood to see how the Philly situation sorts out. What would you do? Thanks and will help in return.
  9. Tanner Gentry 2017 Outlook

    Two thoughts on Gentry: 1. Following the Bears in camp, there's been talk of how much Gentry helped make Josh Allen into a potential top QB draft pick next year. That may just be pure nothing-to-write-about blather, as how much Wyoming football anyone has watched seems rather low. 2. I highly doubt that John Fox, the king of stubborn thinking, will play Gentry right away. Fox has all his cherished veteran scrubs to play first. I'll be watching this situation closely though as FWIW, Trubisky seemed to have a pretty solid connection with Gentry in the pre-season games. Last year with the Bears this panned out with Meredith and all the reps he took with the Bears back-up QBs, when Meredith and Hoyer/Barkley became the starters.
  10. OBJ and Evans, then. That's a powerful long-term combo. Giving up Brady is rough for the short term, but I'd love to have those two receivers forever.
  11. Any rules on how long you can keep a player, what it costs to keep a player?
  12. 8th pick in a keeper league help

    Despite the element of the unknown, I would lean Fournette. Personally I'm down on Gurley but I think either of those two is your best bet. For as much as the Jags invested in Fournette, and the unstable QB situation, you figure he'll get a high workload if nothing else. The Rams are such a blank slate, it's really hard to judge what they will be.
  13. Seeking some advice on my first round pick in a keeper league. 12 teams, 17 roster spots, .5 PPR, snake draft, four keepers maximum, 48 keepers have been kept across the league. My keepers: Devonta Freeman, CJ Anderson, Tyrell Williams, Hunter Henry With keepers eliminated, the first round slots approximately as follows: 1. Le'Veon Bell 2. Antonio Brown 3. Julio Jones 4. LeSean McCoy 5. AJ Green 6. Melvin Gordon 7. DeMarco Murray 8. Leonard Fournette 9. Dez Bryant 10. TY Hilton 11. Todd Gurley 12. Lamar Miller * Ezekiel Elliott could theoretically fall somewhere in here for the truly bold. First round picks can't be kept (every other round can) so it is unlikely. He'll probably go at the turn at 13. The top 3 should go in some order in the first three picks. Person #4 has kept Michael Thomas, John Brown, Doug Martin and Tyler Eifert, so I would imagine he would take an RB, likely McCoy. The only caveat is that he is a die-hard Bengals fan, so picking AJ isn't out of the question. My strategy is: -Take McCoy if he's available. -If McCoy goes at 4, I'm debating between AJ Green and DeMarco Murray. Staying away from Gordon as I already have two Chargers. Thoughts on Green: I already have some depth at RB, much depending on CJ. AJ is a guaranteed stud, no doubt about it, but I'm worried about the awful state of the Cincinnati offensive line. Thoughts on Murray: if I choose Murray, I won't have a stud #1 receiver but feel like there's good depth in the remaining rounds that I can get at least a strong WR2, and I can avoid the inevitable run on RBs that occurs in later rounds. Very confident in the Titans run game, just a matter of the great unknown of how much of a split Henry will take. What say you? Thank you for your advice.
  14. Keep 4

    12 team league 17 roster spots (Starters: QB RB RB WR WR TE RB/WR/TE K D) .5 PPR Keeper rules -Four keepers maximum -A kept player costs one draft round higher than their round the previous year. -Players can be kept through the season in which their round slot is the first round. Options: Ameer Abdullah (4th round), Josh Doctson (8), Devonta Freeman (13), CJ Prosise (14), CJ Anderson (15), Donte Moncrief (16), Thomas Rawls (16), Tyrell Williams (17), Hunter Henry (17). My initial plan is to keep: Freeman (13) Anderson (15) Moncrief (16) Henry (17) Any advice is appreciated!
  15. TE Sleepers

    Gates finished 7th in all the NFL last year in red zone targets with 22. Henry finished 27th in the NFL with 17 red zone targets. Even with Gates finishing in the top 10 in the league, look at all the targets Henry had! We know the Chargers were forcing the ball to Gates last year to try to get him the record, and I'm sure he'll be the focus in the early going. But I'm not sure why this should impact Henry's red zone looks, since his numbers were very sustainable with Gates as high as he was last year. http://nflsavant.com/targets.php Assuming Rivers hasn't lost his career-long love for the TE, I don't see why both can't get their share. Beyond the red zone, at least anecdotally I thought that there was a fair consensus that Gates looked old and slow last year. I'm sure @boltup15 has watched way more than I have, so take this with a grain of salt. Given what Henry showed last year when he was the starter with Gates out, I'm just hard-pressed to believe that Gates is going to be the main focus outside of the red zone, with Henry's talent apparent.
