  1. Any chance Giants can go Chubb/Guice? Would they have to trade up to secure Guice?
  2. Yeah I'm just thinking for vulture saves. I'm in a daily league.
  3. I picked up Lucchesi. Looks pretty solid and I'm going to try and ride him out this season because I think he could be a future stud. He just needs to be able to get through more innings for QS's.
  4. What are the chances that Ottavino gets some save chances for COL? Solid ratios, has 2 W's already. I'm about to sit Parker and start Ottavino in a 3 RP league.
  5. I think Cooper will be picked in drafts at least a round before Jordy; dynasty even more. I think Cooper is definitely a zero RB play for redraft, which like I mentioned before, could be a contrarian draft strategy this year which can benefit you in the end since RBS have good draft depth this year. If Cooper is your WR3/FLEX and gets you high WR2 to low WR1 upside, and you draft two WR'S that do well within their expected ADP range, that could be the difference maker in your season (assuming you draft correctly/standard in every other position). I also like drafting players that have high trade potential with lower cost as well.
  6. He can drop balls every year if he sucks that bad. I don't care about that. I care about increased volume, which means more receptions and if he becomes a RZ threat, that increases his value as well. His ADP might put him in the 40-45th range. You're crazy not to take a chance on him there. And like I said, I would never roster him without at least having a minimum of 2 WRS before drafting him. He's a very high flier, but I would never give him a permanent slot as of the beginning of the season.
  7. Raiders offensive identity was completely out of wack last year. I'm not completely forgetting about last season, but a-lot has changed. I think Cooper will get tons of more targets this year and I think Gruden is a better coach. I also think since they are in a tough division they will be down a lot this season, hence throwing the ball more. I can't see them throwing the ball to Marshawn that much on dump-offs. Crabtree is gone. Cook is mediocre. Volume alone I see his numbers rise.
  8. Go WR heavy and try to get him as your 3rd option then. Most people will be drafting RB/RB or even RB/QB this year because the two podcasts they put on tell them to. If Cooper becomes the center of their offense and the raiders resemble 2016 without Michael Crabtree he could be a huge breakout. If he progresses even a little and you draft WR heavy, he's a good FLEX for you or replacement week WR2. I can't see a losing situation with drafting Amari unless you draft him as a WR1 and he flat out disappoints; but no one is saying he should be a WR1 at all.
  9. raiders will be throwing a-lot due to game script. Amari will finally be used enough. I think this will be his best year.

  11. I think Giants mgmt really crapped the bed on this one. I think they tried playing a game of chicken by saying they would want something "outrageous" for OBJ for 1.) to put the pressure on OBJ and 2.) ensure that no team makes an adequate offer. Well now they got offers, and OBJ is not afraid to leave NYG, sit out a season, etc. They lost their leverage fully.
  12. Drafted dejong in a deep league as my starting SS and I'm not worried about it at all. I think he's one of the best values in accordance to ADP at the position and being eligible at 2B as well helps.
  13. OBJ probably wants to win a superbowl in his prime. I say that alone makes him want to leave.
  14. It's either the 49ers or the Rams. Both fit the criterion: Teams that want/will pay to win now and can afford losing their future 1st picks for the next couple of years cause they got everyone they need. I think OBJ is traded by end of week for sure.
  15. Mid april and forward he should be as solid as ever. Slotting him in DH
  16. Anyone holding onto Lyons for possible closing duties?
  17. I am very happy you said this because I completely agree. It is going back to being a RB first type league again, and for dynasty this will even be more predominant with the upcoming rookie class. WR'S are expendable, both in fantasy and now IRL. There are very, very few exceptions. I would rather take a high flier chance on a TE for much cheaper and put him in as a flex at this point then take a bunch of WRS and not know which to start week to week. My dynasty league was a start up this week. I picked 2nd and I got Bell, Gurley, Rodgers. My wrs at the end of the season were larry fitzgerald and keelan cole. I won the league because of gurley and keelan cole. I was versing teams who had stacks like Antonio Brown/Mike Evans, another team drafted OBJ, Hopkins (traded a lot for a first round pick) and Allen Robinson. It wasn't even close.
  18. Doctson is a WR 4/5 at best. Washington is a team I'm staying far and away from this year. The only player I would possibly draft in a late round, full PPR is Crowder. If this is Dynasty then Doctson has slight more value, but there are 20+ other WR'S with the same/more value with similar and cheaper price tags.
  19. To clear cap space they would do it for anyone, especially if they are in rebuilding mode. Then they don't care about beating them this year or the next. Seems like OBJ is becoming too much of a problem for him to be worth it.
  20. I can only see a team like the Cowboys trading for OBJ.
  21. Ugh this seems very rational. I'm not even a Giants fan but this is disappointing if true.
  22. I still have to give Pryor one more season/chance before looking past his advanced metrics. I never was a "stat guy" but more of a circumstantial/game script type of manager when contemplating who to draft/start, but this dude is a 99% percentile in speed at 6'4". I cannot see the Jets signing this guy and not at least attempting to make him an X receiver over receivers like Anderson and Kearse. We don't even know if Quincy is going to be on the field at the start of the season. I will definitely draft Pryor in the 7th +, especially in PPR. I might even draft him earlier if I go 0 RB and WR heavy (full ppr only). The three receivers that would be fighting for target share are not athletic studs in my opinion. Losing ASJ also means there was, before Pryor, no dominant RZ target. I can't see Crowell getting many goal line opportunities with this team (at least this season), and they will be down a-lot. I don't want to go too far yet, but Pryor could be another Todd Gurley example where people dismiss him after one season and his true form comes out the next season with a better opportunity.
  23. I'm more worried about Gore being used for goal-line situations. I'm happy with Drake as my RB3/FLEX in .5 PPR. I definitely wouldn't have him anymore than a RB2 with high upside- but that was the case in my opinion before Gore anyway.
