  1. 2018 Buy Low / Sell High Thread

    David Johnson had a good stat line last game, but if you watched the game the Cardinals are still misusing him horribly and I don't see that changing soon. I would take advantage of the Kamara owners' fear of Ingram and his bad game to try and trade DJ high, get Kamara low.
  2. Josh Gordon 2018 Outlook

    And? I'm not arguing that Landry will make Gordon a better fantasy asset or get him more volume. I'm arguing that he'll make him a better receiever irl. You and others seem to be disagreeing because you think I'm implying Landry is a boone for his fantasy value. I don't own Gordon so I don't have a vested interest here, but damn, people argue in these forums based on which perceived "side" they think someone is on, rather than the actual points being made.

    Dorsey has already stated one of the reasons he brought in Landry was for his veteran leadership and teaching ability. Do you not think that playing with and learning from a technician like Landry will help Gordon develop?

    You know, I hear Josh Gordon is a big fan of grammar. Someone can have bias, or they can be biased, but you can't be bias. Ok, sorry for being a pedantic a**hole but holy s--- does that mistake bug me. More on topic- Landry has some of the best hands and short area quickness in the game, plus great feel for settling down in a hole in the zone. Better than woods in all 3 areas imo. Wait, the topic is Josh Gordon? Ok, playing with Landry should help Gordon learn the finer points of the game- those he hasn't had to because of his athleticism.

    I agree with you on the O-line- the return of Iupati at guard really helps them. Both DJ and Bradford have recognized him as a standout performer, and PFF gave him the highest player grade--albeit in preseason--in the league. I disagree about Bell, but I'm a Steelers fan so not exactly unbiased. DJ is more athletic than Bell and probably has stronger legs in the weight room, but for whatever reason his athleticism doesn't always translate to running well between the tackles. My biggest concerns with DJ revolved around how he would adjust to running behind a fullback, and whether or not his run-first head coach would utilize him correctly in the passing game. So far, so good with the FB, and McCoy should neutralize any tendency Wilks may have had to waste DJs talents on old-school smash mouth football. So long as the Cardinals continue to utilize him like Kamara (but with more volume) and not AD, all will be well.
  6. Joe Mixon 2018 Outlook

    Offensive lines--especially when it comes to run blocking--often take awhile to gel. I'm not particularly concerned by the Bengals somewhat poor run blocking in the preseason. On the other hand, I'm heartened by Mixon's use in the passing game and what looks like it could be a much better offense this year. IMO the biggest concern with Mixon is his decision making and feel for the game. He's patient and can pick through gaps, but on stretch runs he often misses cutback lanes because of that patience. He has a formidable jump cut and great footwork in the backfield, but counter-intuitively hasn't been great at creating in space. His instincts just aren't quite yet commensurate with his athleticism. Decision making and game feel are often problems for rookies. If he improves in those areas, I think he'll be a top 8 back.

    I think Chris Harris is decent at film breakdown when it comes to individual players and their skills, but not great at understanding schemes and nuances of the game. Brett Kollmann, on the other hand, is by far the best film watcher I've seen.

    The fantasy footballers podcast is fantastic. I used to think it was geared more towards just entertainment, but their arguments and use of advanced metrics have really improved.
  9. Nick Chubb 2018 Outlook

    I think this was a good real-life move for the browns. Hyde has shown that he has durability issues, and even if he didn't, running backs get hurt. Spreading the grind between Hyde and Chubb isn't a bad idea. That said, I want no part of this backfield in fantasy.

    Says the guy who thinks the earth is round. Sheep I tell you, sheep!
  11. Nick Chubb 2018 Outlook

    The point is that the Browns weren't alone in their evaluation, as you seemed to be implying. It certainly wasn't an objectively stupid pick, and citing an exception like Ryan Leaf doesn't help your argument- if anything, he's just another example of the QB position being difficult to evaluate.
  12. Josh Gordon 2018 Outlook

    Agreed, but long tds are historically much less repeatable/predictive. I'm a big fan, and if I can get him in the 4th I'll gladly take him. His talent is obviously off the charts, but who knows if Haley's offense will feature him the same way he was in 2013, especially with the other weapons available now.
  13. Josh Gordon 2018 Outlook

    He had 9 tds in 14 games during his breakout year. That may have been an aberration; the offense was designed entirely around Gordon, albeit with subpar qb play. Ironically, I don't think we've seen enough of Gordon to really know what his TD upside is like, but IMO it's up there.
  14. Cleveland Browns 2018 Outlook

    Agreed. Baker Mayfield is not Manziel. I'm not saying he's Russell Wilson, but he's closer to that end of the spectrum than he is to Johnny football. I would have taken Chubb, but again, Ward is still a fantastic player and people are acting as though the Browns drafted a subpar corner. I feel odd defending the browns, but none of us will truly have an idea of how this plays out for at least a couple years.
  15. Cleveland Browns 2018 Outlook

    Perhaps, perhaps not. But sub optimal is different than a disaster.
