  1. Kerryon Johnson 2018 Outlook

    @Dr. Whom If we are thinking he will continue to get stuffed on 3rd and short and goal-line carries... Think again. Blount obviously is more than capable, and fantasy football aside, this is how you preserve a guy for 16 games... Kerryon will get opportunities though, and it would be unwise to write him off. Dude can truck.

    I was able to get him and David Johnson for Cooks (sold high before concussion) and Lynch before his dud last week. I would do TY for Lynch straight up if I were you. TY has only missed 2 games in the last 3 years including last weeks miss. You've gotta realize you are getting a bonafide mid tier WR1 when healthy and with Luck now back. Don't get me wrong, I'm still terrified about his hamstring, and seeing Fournette fizzle away first hand doesn't help. I'm approaching it like Fournette's is worse, and if TY sits out 3-4 games you still have a WR1 come playoff time.

    You’re the epitome of ignorance if that’s actually your thought process. What quarterback would actually think that way, Stafford or not? Annual bottom 5 running game, annual bottom 10 defense, and getting sacked 35+ times a year are just a few things that prevent playoff wins. Tim Tebow won a playoff game. Is he better than Stafford? Anyway, back to kerryon. No TJ Lang this week isn’t great, but as long as the lions keep losing, it’s obvious the kid needs the ball more. Blount has been largely inefficient since week 1, and I expect the workload to continue to shift in Kerryon’s favor. I expect 15 carries this game as long as Rodgers doesn’t shred the lions defense in the first half. Home game, the Lions will be eager to establish the run early. Kerryon should return mid tier RB2 numbers this week.

    Just bought low on him.. As a Fournette owner, taking on another tattered hamstring is NOT good for my health either. Hoping the 10 days does the trick, but also hoping that he does NOT fire it up next week unless he is 100%. Long season ahead.
  5. Matthew Stafford 2018 Outlook

    Stafford for his career plays GB better than anyone else in the division. Last 4 games vs them? 320+ yards each game, 2+ TDs each game, and a 10:2 TD to INT ratio for those 4 games. Home game, offense is healthy minus Lang at RG. I'm starting him over Rivers this week. Am I biased? Yep. It really is a must-win game for Det though, and Stafford does bring it vs the Pack, contrary to what alot of people may think. The Lions defense, however, does not and most likely will not.
  6. James White 2018 Outlook

    Traded him and Sanders for Hopkins this morning.. Not 100% confident of that move after last night's performance, but I look at selling high as the right move here. Dude is averaging a TD per every 8 receptions, I just cannot see that being sustainable especially with Edelman looking truly like his old self. Sony looks the part as well, more so than I expected.. The historically proven volatility of Patriots RBs any given week makes me wary of White, especially with what looks like a borderline bellcow ahead of him. I can't fault any of you for riding this wave in PPR, but I am officially off the train as I fear the erratic Hoodie will rear his ugly head as the season wears on.
  7. 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.
  8. O.J. 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
  9. 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."
  10. 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
  11. 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.
  12. 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
  13. 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.
  14. 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.
  15. 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.
