  1. Ezekiel Elliott 2018 Outlook

    Boom, so glad I traded for him after a couple of down games. Despite the negativity in this thread he’s only gone under 10 points in standard twice this year. Trading him for Mixon straight up is straight up crazy. Should have been able to get something else thrown in.

    Touché
  3. Brandin Cooks 2018 Outlook

    10 team league. I have no idea why he fell so hard, couldn’t believe it. After first tier WRs went off the board the position was left for a while and someone started a run on QBs and then TEs. Very lucky I guess. I have to admit as well, not a lot of people in my league are as on then pulse with NFL as I am so that certainly helps.
  4. Sony Michel 2018 Outlook

    I mentioned this in an assistant coach thread recently - the thing about Michel is that without Hill he is the only true RB left on the team. Rex and White are both great passing backs but struggle in the run game and when relied upon, Rex rarely delivers on the ground. Michel will get plenty of opportunities because he can do both, the only issue here is health - and I would also temper expectations this week though, they may test the waters on him and see how he fares without giving him the ball too much. Fingers crossed, assuming most people on here didn't draft him all that high he could pay dividends down the stretch.
  5. Trade Diggs + Hyde for Fournette?

    I don't like what it does to your WR's. Your RB's are strong and when Ingram gets back you'll be set anyway. I'd stay put.
  6. Brandin Cooks 2018 Outlook

    Cooks likely will be what Cooks was last year, the biggest difference is his draft position making him outstanding value. Last year he was still good, albeit inconsistent. This year he fell to me in the 8th round and I couldn't be happier. He'll be my flex all year long barring injury. For those who have never owned Cooks before, however, beware you will get a few stinkers in there. It's just who he is.
  7. I would see what I have in Michel to be honest. You are looking for a backup and DJ/Lewis will sit ahead of either so I would rather keep the player with higher reward potential and I see that as being Michel. Alfred Morris is what Alfred Morris is and I don't see the payoff nearly as high as Michel's potential. Another thing to consider about Michel is that he is really the only true RB on the team, pending the outcome of the Hill injury. Rex and White are both passing backs and struggle in traditional run plays, so I predict Michel will get plenty of snaps once healthy.
  8. Alvin Kamara 2018 Outlook

    Also the Saints D looks like it will leak points again, forcing the O to pull more than it's own weight. I have to admit I was a bit nervous about selecting Kamara with the way he is used. I had pick 4 and could have gone with DJ, I've had buyers remorse since because I had convinced myself Kamara cannot keep up the efficiency from last year with his limited touches and DJ would have been a safer bet. This game put some of those nerves to bed but not all, will be interesting to see how Ingram's return will impact Kamara's value re: goal line carries.
  9. Brandin Cooks 2017 Season Outlook

    I have Julio and Keenan Allen over him at the moment, I think it’s really a toss-up to pick any two of them. I would not be playing the likes of Gordon over Cooks though.

    Quite risky, but perhaps more focus will be put on Gronk since he has dominated both Buf and Pit last two games. Who knows with Cooks, really depends on other options to you.
  12. Drew Brees 2017 Season Outlook

    my bad, I’ll go back to my cocktails
  13. Drew Brees 2017 Season Outlook

    I hate that I have Brees, Kamara and Jones in the Thursday night game, but I’m sticking with Brees.

    This is an overaction to a commonly criticised rule. I don’t know how you tweak the rule but the NFL needs to be careful so as not to make it to grey an area. As much as I hate the rule it is pretty black and white, and the Call was right to the letter of the rule book. To try and squeeze in an exception within the catch rule without making it more complicated is not as easy as you’d think. I don’t think the NFL is worried about losing causal viewers, nor do I think casual viewers care about plays like this.
  15. Greg Olsen 2017 Season Outlook

    I didn’t watch the game, but like many here he was on my bench as well. I am very late to Olsen party who was dropped after last weeks doughnut. I have to choose between Olsen and Doyle next week - pretty sure I’ll go Olsen, although I feel like he might be more risky with his vastly different performances. Is Olsen good to go, did he look like his old self or is his foot still something to be managed? How did he actually look out there?
