  1. Lamar Miller 2018 Outlook

    I'm pretty happy with him so far, he's ran well, and the lack of TD's don't worry me because it's a 2 game sample. If you're going by what we've seen so far he's also projected for 1440 yards from scrimmage this year. The lack of involvement in the passing game is frustrating, but I think he'll have some games with 30+ receiving yards sprinkled in. This guy was going for scraps in drafts and before Thursday's game he was RB4 in rushing totals. He's not a guy who's going to win you a season single handedly, but he's as reliable as they come for RB's, especially at the discount he went for.
  2. Rex Burkhead 2018 Outlook

    Yeah I’m hoping that since it’s concussion related that his status will be reported earlier in the day. Not like a hammy injury where he has to stretch it out on the field before they make the call.
  3. Rex Burkhead 2018 Outlook

    If he plays I think I’ll be starting him over Jamaal Williams. His ypc wasn’t great in week 1, but I expect him getting used in the passing game more tomorrow. Pats had a strong lead throughout the game last week, but I expect the jaguars to keep it closer or potentially be ahead at times which will prompt more Burkhead receptions. Also, it bears repeating that Brady just overthrew him on a TD pass in week 1. If that play connected he would’ve had 80+ yards and a TD, and everyone would be hyping him as a low end RB1. As long as Michel doesn’t explode with his carries (and I don’t expect the pats to suddenly shift duties to a rookie rb with knee and ball security issues), then Burkhead has great value as a member of one of the best offenses in the NFL who is looking at 15-20 touches per game.
  4. Randall Cobb 2018 Outlook

    One thing that's impossible not to like about last night is the 10 targets. I know that's not going to happen every game, but in an offense with some young and new faces, Cobb could be looking at 2014 type numbers this season. It's also nice to see that the Packers D still isn't great, always great news for the offense.
  5. Rex Burkhead 2018 Outlook

    Obviously his total yardage wasn't anything to write home about, but Burkhead owners have to be happy about his workload. 19 touches on a Pats offense will translate to way more points against a weaker defense. Also, I haven't gone back but I believe Burkhead had a red zone target and was open, but Brady just made a bad pass. I'm willing to bet that he's more involved in the passing game moving forward too, and Hill being out for the year will definitely help him out as far as goal line touches. Now the only thing to be worried about is how Michel looks when he's back from injury. If he doesn't pan out to much more than a chance of pace guy, Burkhead could be looking at a 300 touch season.
  6. Jamaal Williams 2018 Outlook

    It's tough that Williams two starts without Jones around are against the Bears and the Vikings, two of the top run defenses in the league. So it's not likely that his stats will jump off the page next week either. His lack of usage in a play from behind 2nd half is a little concerning though, I was really hoping he'd develop into a dump off option for Rodgers, but 1 reception is not enough. I think Williams will still have a solid week 3 workload as they're not too likely to just hand Jones' a bunch of touches on his first game back. But once you get into week 4 on I could see it as Williams for 10-15 touches, Jones for 5-10, and Montgomery getting the passing work. That's a bit of a nightmare situation as it makes him entirely TD dependent, and would require an injury for anyone to become a confident starter in fantasy. It's only week 1 so all of this is a bit premature, but it's not looking particularly great for any of the Packers' running backs at the moment.
  7. Devonta Freeman 2018 Outlook

    I think people will make offers depending on how week 1 goes. If a guy like chris Carson gets 15 carries and a couple receptions for 80 yards and a td, that’d be an interesting offer for a player who just got banged up and only had 6 carries, and is potentially heading into a 50/50 timeshare.
  8. Doug Baldwin 2018 Outlook

    I’ve been trying to decide the same thing. I think you have to look at your matchup/other players on your team. Do you need a guaranteed floor? If so Baldwin probably isn’t your guy. But his ceiling certainly isn’t low. Besides Lockett (who has never posted 700+ yards in a season), Baldwin is the only surefire receiver in this offense, and could easily see 10+ targets week 1, especially this early in the season when Wilson is still getting used to the other (downgraded) options around him. Also, while I don’t think the seahawks defense is going to be bad, on paper they’re undoubtably worse than in years past. Playing from behind could really boost his target share and YPC even more. I’m rolling out Baldwin in my flex this week over Burkhead and Hyde, for reference.
  9. I ended up going for a deep bench in my auction draft cause all of the top guys were going for too much IMO. Got a lot of potential but will be struggling to pick out the best bet for the first few weeks. Here are my flex options: Rex Burkhead vs Texans - Tough matchup, still don't know where Rex's (or Sony Michel's) injury is at, or exactly how the NE backfield will shape out to be. Hyde vs PIT - Better matchup, Hyde looked great in third preseason game and is clearly the starter for now, but still has workload concerns. Baldwin vs Den - Baldwin's knee is main concern, and I also don't know how good Denvers' secondary is this year after dealing Talib? Rest of starting lineup, in case there are any concerns there: QB: Kirk Cousins vs SF RB: Lamar Miller vs Pats RB: Jamaal Williams vs Chi WR: Mike Evans vs NO WR: Tyreek Hill vs Chargers TE: Travis Kelce vs Chargers Other bench players: Mark Ingram Michael Crabtree Randall Cobb Tyler Lockett
  10. Rex Burkhead 2018 Outlook

    So your hot take is that a player that got hurt a few times last year will get hurt a few times this year? And that the pats offense with 4 running backs will take a few weeks to get figured out? Really stepping out on a ledge there..
  11. Jacob Hollister 2018 Outlook

    I like Hollister as a player, but even if gronk goes down I don't see him being fantasy relevant. Also, they say he's put on some mass and is listed at 6'4", but he always looks so small out there as a tight end.
  12. Phillip Dorsett 2018 Outlook

    He might have a couple decent games during Edelman's 4 game suspension, but after that he'll likely be in on >50% snaps, with him and C Patterson rotating in on 3 WR sets. Can't imagine you'd want to roll the dice on him in that first 4 weeks unless he really blows up week 1 with a lot of targets.
  13. Chris Hogan 2018 Outlook

    Not much to dislike considering how low his price is at the moment, but what do you think about having Hogan and Gronk in the same lineup? Pats D is looking shaky again, none of these new receivers seem to be really stepping up to the task, and Edelman hasn't looked particularly great coming off injury at age 32. If you can get 1/2 of Brady's production from those two guys (which should be Brady's top 2 targets) you're looking at 2300 yards and 16 TD's to split between the two, certainly seems reasonable for that to happen.
  14. Lamar Miller 2018 Outlook

    One thing people aren't really talking about is that Foreman is coming back from an achilles tear. In some positions you can come back from that and be relatively fine, but there has literally never been a running back to recover from an achilles tear and be the same player they were before. I'd spend almost double what he's going for in auction drafts at the current time. Between Foreman's slow return from the achilles tear, Watson being back, the playmakers on their D being back, and Miller shedding some pounds in the offseason, there's really not much to dislike this year. He may not flash on film, but he's put up 1200+ yards from scrimmage and 6+ TD's every year for the last 4 years, and only missing 2 games in that span. You can get a great RB2 for 10 cents on the dollar this year, apparently.
  15. Cordarrelle Patterson 2018 Outlook

    He’s never had more than 13 carries in a season, why would he get 4x that much in NE? Especially with how many RB’s on the pats roster. With that being said, as a pats fan I hope he ends up being great and putting up solid numbers. But so far from preseason it looks like the pats are more invested in Dorsett as the third receiver, although he’s looked meh at best so far. Patterson makes more sense to me since the patriots lack a big body receiver (although they do have Gronk), so I’d like them to show off a bit more size with Patterson rather than Dorsett. Im curious if BB is so concerned about getting his kick returner hurt that he’ll limit him to the previously mentioned gadget plays that CP is known for. Belichick values special teams maybe more than any head coach out there, so it wouldn’t surprise me.
