  1. Leonard Fournette 2018 Outlook

    With Grant getting some serious looks, tough to look at Yeldon as a high-end handcuff like an Ekeler. Probably not even start worthy even if Fournette is out again.
  2. OJ Howard 2018 Outlook

    The potential QB change in a few weeks does make me wary. Or will it not even happen due to how electric ol Fitzpatrick has been? I definitely understand OJ's upside and athleticism while taking into account positional scarcity .. Debating dropping Doyle for him but worried about Howard's potentially low floor to go with a QB change
  3. Leonard Fournette 2018 Outlook

    Haha, based on last year's Marrone coach speak, Fournette could have a limb completely removed and Doug would say: "Absolutely has a chance, we will just take him day by day. Everyday we evaluate, Leonard is in a good place and definitely trending where we need him to be. We'll see how his stump feels tomorrow and go from there. It's a grind, this league. Really liking his chances for Sunday."
  4. Emmanuel Sanders 2018 Outlook

    Just stay healthy you solid veteran beast. Has a very solid chance at a top 15-20 WR if he does
  5. Alex Collins 2018 Outlook

    You're nitpicking, he's comparing him to one of AP's worst traits. Which does go to show that the leash on fumbles can be quite long if the coaching staff believes in the guy. Obviously Collins' leash will never be as long as one of the GOATs. But if the staff believes in the guy, 2, 3 or even 4+ fumbles aren't enough for him to be benched into oblivion. Yes it is a concern, but all indicators tell us they think of him as a bellcow, undisputed #1, and a guy they plan to roll through.
  6. Danny Amendola 2018 Outlook

    Got him in the flex over Chris Thompson, Garcon, and Lockett in my 12 team ppr... don’t feel great about it but camp and preseason tell me 5/50 should be a floor. It’s risky though
  7. James White 2018 Outlook

    Probably going to roll him out in the flex based on preseason and their current RB situation. Should be a great security blanket for Brady against a tough Texans team. It's a risky fantasy play and I'm not 100% confident, but if the stars have ever been aligned for White, now is the time.
  8. Marshawn Lynch 2018 Outlook

    He had over 220 last year and even the slightest trend to emphasize the run- giving him 2 carries extra per game- gets him there. IMO the guys in his range (Hyde, Coleman, RoJo, Penny, Crowell, Chris Thompson) do not have any more of a guaranteed road to 200+ carries or more touches than he does. Hyde has the best chance but he too has 2 very solid backs to compete with, 2 guys better than Doug. Any way ya slice it, you don't want any of those guys as a RB2 on your team, including Marshawn. I guess we just differ in the sense that I believe Marshawn has the easiest road to volume out of them, barring injury of course. And when you're throwing darts in that wasteland, volume reigns supreme.
  9. Marshawn Lynch 2018 Outlook

    I guess I over exaggerated your statement but I took, "to be a bellcow, you have to be able to handle the bellcow role" as you basically stating you don't believe he will be able to endure the season with that type of workload. I get his age is a concern but besides that, I just don't see any signs or coachspeak or recent performance indicating that he wouldn't be able to handle a bellcow role. And if he can hold up for 220+ carries, last year's YPC indicates he will be able to offer about 1000 yards and 7-10TDs.
  10. Marshawn Lynch 2018 Outlook

    What makes you think he is going to fall off a cliff and not be able to handle it? I'd understand your concerns if he's been sitting out camp due to nagging injuries, slow/rested during preseason, or if there was major hype from Doug Martin & talk of "riding the hot hand." But none of that has been happening. I'm not saying he will be a RB1, but he handled 220 carries just fine last year and picked up steam as the season went on instead of regressing.
  11. Marshawn Lynch 2018 Outlook

    I'm not loving the fact he is on my team, but he did average 4.3 YPC last year which is exactly his career average, and his performance included a solid half of the season shaking rust off.. 7 TDs last year could expand to 8-10 if he plays the full year with a slightly improved offense/ Carr, and we know his new coach has applauded his camp performance. I think 220 for 950 and 8 TDs to go with 30 catches should be the expectation barring health or age causing regression.
  12. Chris Thompson 2018 Outlook

    Not listed on the injury report, never was one of my targets but snagged him mid round 7 in a 12-team PPR. Should absolutely offer value for that pick if he can stay healthy. If he plays a full 16 games is 70 receptions out of the question? Was on pace for ~61 last season through 10 games before the injury happened in week 11. As previously stated, Alex Smith ain't afraid of a check down as we all know. AP isn't exactly a model of health in front of him either. If Thompson can get into game shape sooner than later, I dont see how he wouldnt be able to finish top 15-20 PPR.
  13. Marshawn Lynch 2018 Outlook

    Didn't pick the Beast once in any of my mocks I've done over the past few weeks, but there he was 63rd overall in a standard league and I pulled the trigger. He definitely picked it up in the second half of last season, looks sharp this preseason, and the Raiders have a good line. If he plays a full season I'm hoping he can be a back end RB2. Hard to get excited through and the threat of him falling off the proverbial RB cliff could easily happen as the season wears on. Like I said, doesn't look like he's slowed down in preseason at all though.
  14. 2018 RB Rankings

    One of the best lists I've seen.. I'm slightly higher on Collins and Drake than you but this is a terrific list.
  15. Jordan Howard 2018 Outlook

    Back on track here, I can't believe it but after what Nagy has been saying and after reading a few of the Howard advocates in this thread... I'm seriously considering him at 16th overall in a 12 team PPR after I hopefully snag Fornette 9th. No, Howard is not as much of a physical freak as Gurley, but as previously stated in the thread, everything that aligned for Gurley last year is eerily similar with Howard this year. Truly the only concern is is receptions in PPR.. If he can have 29 as a rookie in a John Fox anemic offense, you have to think 40 is possible. And if he snags 40 balls, RB1 is guaranteed. With the mid round receivers the way they are, a Fournette Howard anchor at RB is awfully attractive... TL;DR- 16th in a 12 team PPR is a 'reach' according to 95%+ of the population, and 2 weeks ago I would never be saying this. But man if anyone is this year's Gurley after a "down year" (as RB9 lol), the stars aligning say it is this guy.
