  1. What would you do with a team like mine?

    Determine the likes and dislikes of your leaguemates, even more than their needs, and exploit these preferences. You might get a great player because someone doesn't like the Falcons (for example), etc. Find needs at QB and possibly WR and trade Trubisky and/or Dalton; trade WRs; trade Gio to the Mixon owner, Bilal Powell to the Crowell owner. See what you can get for Alshon. Pray.
  2. Terrelle Pryor 2018 Outlook

    Had to be a "lock," right? The Cousins-Pryor connection can't go wrong, so much talent... For everyone who reached for Pryor in Round 3 last season... and for those who took him at his value in Round 4... and for those who felt lucky when he fell to Round 5 and snatched him then... But this year will be different, right? Because now Pryor is the #1 WR on the Shelbyville Huguenots?
  3. Chris Carson 2018 Season Outlook

    The interesting x-factor here is, Seattle has dumped their RB backfield (Rawls, Lacy, and surprisingly Mike Davis), leaving only CJ Prosise and McKissic along with CC. I see Prosise as more of a pride thing, hope that they can get something out of this Round 3 draft muff, because at this point he's only been available for 11 games in two years, amassing 195 yards rushing / 1 TD (in two years), and 23 receptions 295 yards receiving (zero TDs). McKissic at 5'10" 195lbs has really be used as more of a WR than an RB, even last season when he was last man standing in Seattle's RB injury pit of despair. Assuming they take two RBs this upcoming draft, but they address their major needs first (like o-line, and now some holes in defense), and assuming Prosise suffers a high-ankle sprain while getting out of his bathtub, the competition for the role and the committee itself will be shallow. I see the complexity of Carson's injury more of a draft deterrent than either committee worries of offensive line instability. Still, I'm rooting for the kid.

    If that’s the dumbest thing you’ve ever heard, you must be new to Rotoworld
  5. Doug Martin 2018 Season Outlook

    But easy to predict Martin's 2018 output and thereby calculate his value: 1400 yard rushing / 250 yards receiving / 7 TDs Those are Martin's 2015 numbers, so for this upcoming here we can expect half of that, valuing him safely at Round 8, $2 in auction.
  6. Chris Carson 2018 Season Outlook

    For my two cents, I wouldn't say "freak" athlete, though I am a huge fan. Carson ran well, and it was fun to watch him run, and amidst a crowded backfield he was on the only one who truly looked good regularly. Heartbreaking when I saw him go down (I watch all Seattle games) and then get bent around. I see his injury as something a more complex, and while I'm hopeful he'll return to full form, I'm skeptical until I see it with my own eyes. Carroll is a great coach, and like the two of you guys, Carroll is a great (and even exaggerated) optimist. I want to trust his optimism when he said Carson would start if they'd made it to the playoffs, but this is not a simple injury; it's a compound (dual) injury, high ankle sprain with torn ligaments + fracture below the knee. It's two injuries from the same incident. If Carson cannot return to full form, he will have trouble keeping his job, and this is what concerns me.
  7. Cooper Kupp 2018 Outlook

    “He could be WR1 on a high-scoring team going forward.“ I’d suggest a solid WR2 or handy slot receiver, an integral part of a competent offensive machine, producing solid numbers, but only rarely hitting WR1 numbers, and although I think he’s talented I don’t see him carrying a team as a WR1. My two cents. NFL ain’t Eastern Washington. But I am a Kupp fan. (Kupphead?)
  8. Jerick McKinnon 2018 Outlook

    You’re lost. It’s easy to get lost when speaking of the McKinnon Paradox. Shanahan himself got lost. He may still be lost from being forced to contain Joe Williams to I R last season.
  9. Cooper Kupp 2018 Outlook

    So could I, but the odds are seriously against both of us becoming a WR1.
  10. Ryan Grant 2018 Season Outlook

    Not 100%, but healthy enough to pass his post-Baltimore physical and visit the Colts. What Baltimore did to the kid ain’t right, regardless of his worthiness for that contract... League should investigate the details of the medical report and if unsound should have the Ravens give the kid some compensation. My two cents. I’d say we should all boycott the Ravens in solidarity, but that’s absurd and reveals how little power we as a group of social mediaists have. Then again, staying away from the Ravens’ offense might just happen naturally if you’re looking to enter the fantasy playoffs

  12. Jerick McKinnon 2018 Outlook

    He still is, right? I mean, Freeman isn't slacking off or retiring now that he's got a sizable contract, no? I can see how McKinnon could be viewed as a Freeman wannabe, and it's quite possible that McKinnon has a Freeman poster hanging up in his bedroom. That said, McKinnon stumbled into the spotlight last year with Cook's injury, and he did great-ish. If it wasn't for Latavius Schmuray, McKinnon would've done even better. Great to see a talented back given an shot and prove himself... at least some of the time... because really, I believe he only had 6 games with double-digit fantasy production (PPR). He'll excel-ish this year given more opportunity.
  13. Robert Woods 2018 Outlook

    Was able to snatch Woods off the wire last season and he helped me into the playoffs. When healthy, Woods seemed unstoppable, great catches and great YAC. He became the WR focal point of the offense, again when healthy: Week 3 = 6 rec / 108 yards Week 9 = 4 rec / 70 yards / 2 TDs Week 10 = 8 rec / 171 yards / 2 TDs Week 11 = 8 rec / 81 yards Week 12 = 6 rec / 45 yards / 1 TD He also had double-digit production in full-point PPR weeks 5, 6, and 7. As defenses focus on Gurley, Woods should produce nicely, but if his price tag becomes inflated I'm staying away. If he falls into my lap at a good price, I'm thinking reliable WR2 with the potential for WR1 numbers. My two cents.
  14. Cooper Kupp 2018 Outlook

    Agree with FollowtheLeader above: drafting Kupp as a WR2 is reasonable, but temper the "high-end" expectations. I do like the kid and I'm lucky to have snatched him on my dynasty team in the fifth round. I saw some horrible drops last season, but overall he has the tenacity and talent to grow and do well as a pro. Being a third generation NFL player means something as well to me, as football is in his blood and this comes out on the field (the spirit, not the actual blood).
