  1. How can anyone say he isn't a great receiver? I'd like to see a percentage of downs he was in on that were passes last year. He caught 43/58 passes in 13 games in 2015 for an avg of 7 ypc and 21/26 for an avg of 9 ypc. Was also an excellent reciever in college. Has actually been PRAISED all camp for his reveling ability and how the new staff is focused on keeping him on the field for 3 downs. You guys honestly think a brand new staff is gonna hedge their bet on a scrub with no talent, weak minded, and disinterested? Coaching is a permanent carousel in today's game, I'm going to bet that they aren't trying to get an avg to below avg player more touches to save their jobs. Their is a reason he was drafted top 10 after a knee injury in a pas happy league. Again, you guys can hate all you want on him last year and of course it's warranted. But if you can sit here and look at Gurley and honestly tell me that you think he isn't a top 5 talented RB, I just can't agree with your evaluation of talent. No hard feelings, we just flat out don't, and will never agree. And I bet that more NFL associates are on my side.
  2. If you don't think he can juke, jump over, or straight run past you, I don't think we've seen the same explosive runs. Sure I've seen him get stuffed tons, I've also seen runs that not many others can make. Like everything else I've been saying, this is just my opinion.
  3. 100% can see the validity in everything you've mentioned. Would also like to mention that Bell had a 3.5 ypc with a line FAR superior to LA's. And that was as a rookie that teams didn't prepare for. Obviously there's the argument of bell being too heavy then trimming down and turning into the phenom we all see now. All I'm saying is that i believe the talent gurley has can be top 5, doesn't mean he ever will be, be questioning his talent Ian just off base. Edit: see marshawn Lynch's stats in buffalo compared to Seattle. And we all respect Marshawn right?
  4. He also had 11 20 yard runs, 5 40 yard runs, 10 tds and 4.8 ypc in 13, yes count them, 13 games as an NFL ROOKIE. Not college. You honestly believe that type of production was a fluke? Was it the product of a good line? A good team? The last two can't be true. Like I've been saying in this thread the entire time, was his season last year a disappointment, one of the biggest. But saying he is trash, no good, or Trent Richardson is just a poor evaluation of talent.
  5. Agreed. There are definitely reasons for doubt, didn't mean to imply that. I'm just heavily in the camp that feels like he's a legit top 7 talent with a chance for more. Hopefully the potential starts to translate to reality more this year similar to 2015. However, I definitely know the feeing of taking a chance on a player and getting burned and being hesitant...know it all too well lol. I appreciate the respectable discussion, I've have had him as a target in my game plan for my big money league so getting the other side has definitely rounded my approach.
  6. You also fail to mention that Gurley was rarely in during passing situations last year. An average fan can diagnose that defensively it's time to gear for the run when he's in. Again, I'm not standing here touting that he's better than DJ or Bell, not really sure why you included that. What I'm saying now, and have been saying is that if you are questioning his ability and competiveness I just downright disagree. I'm not calling you wrong, I'm just saying I honestly disagree with you. LA was a dumpster fire last year and he's included, but saying he is Trent Richardson is a bit ridiculous. Could he turn out that way? Sure it's a possibility. But it's also at least equally the possibility he trends upwards significantly.
  7. I did "literally" watch quite a few of his games actually. I love your quote of a 1002 yard receiver in Britt. You realize when you play from behind by multiple scores it's actually pretty standard to gather more recieving yards than rushing? If Britt could catch he would've probably had 1300 yards receiving. I can agree that there were at times lack of vision, probably more of him pressing to try and break the big one early. If you look at 2015 he had so many long runs, just like the rest of his career. You can think what you want, all I'm saying is if you put TGIII on the steeler, cards, or cowboys...I bet you wouldn't pass on him top 5. Now of course the reality is that he isn't on those teams so him being a top 5 back isn't a possibility more than likely. But doubting this kids talent, drive, and passion for winning is just insane to me. Maybe we just agree to disagree.
  8. Edit: Also, he put UGA on his back every single game he played. Literally returned a kickoff for a touchdown on his FIRST TOUCH EVER as a collegiate player. Came back from an ACL injury in less than a year to have 5 100 yard rushing games in like what, 7 total as a NFL rookie? Like I said, I respect everyone's opinion...but doubting Gurley is only a mistake that defenders tend to make, and they usually don't make that mistake twice.
  9. Just totally don't agree with this. Watched this guy for 3 years at UGA literally every game and most of them 4-5 times after recording them. This kid was the best rb to come out since AP at that point. You seem to forget the stretch he went on for a half season as a rookie? I don' care who you are, Bell and DJ would get stuffed behind that line. Anyone questioning Gurley's competitiveness, leadership, or "it" factor just hasn't watched enough of him. Could he be frustrated? God who wouldn't be? His ELITE skill set was also clearly visible during last seasons hard knocks. Gurley being a top 5 RB in the NFL STATISTICALLY is more of a question of when than if...
  10. OK, so yea he salvaged the start. Again, it's the padres. I didn't drop him because there's no way I can drop anyone that has had a hint of success in my deep league, but if you guys are telling me you feel good about what he's doing right now I"ll just agree to disagree. First inning was 3 hits and 2 ER with a walk too. 2nd earned run comes across on a passed ball. I didn't see the pitch so I don't know if it should've been blocked up by the catcher or the official scorer was favoring the pitcher, either way it isn't a good sign. Sure he settled in and I'm thankful, and maybe this trends him i the right direction, but if you guys are honestly confident sending him out there, I just can't be on that same level with him. I never rage drop, but I can still accurately evaluate the fact that even though he didn't make me feel worse about him, I don't really feel better about him either. Just my 2 cents.
  11. Man. Already a run given up to the pads. Jesus. Guy has been my demise in my 16 team league the last 2 weeks. Zero pitching available on the wire. Brutal.
  12. Welcome back big guy, we've missed you.
  13. This plus scherzer = week over early
  14. Man he may not be droppable but Jesus he's benchable. I haven't watched him pitch live a single time since his return from surgery. Before that surgery, I watched probably 6 starts and my god he looked great. No clue what the issue is right now but he isn't literally losing me weeks in my points league before hump day 2 weeks in a row. God help me in this start....
  15. Liriano will be used in relief based on the rotoworld blurb...FWIW
