  1. Mitch Trubisky 2018 Outlook

    Nagy and rush yards mostly but he has actually made a decent amount of progress as a QB over the course of the season.
  2. Mitch Trubisky 2018 Outlook

    I might be doing the same although Trubisky is my starter so hopefully it isn't a multi-week issue.
  3. Cameron Brate 2018 Outlook

    Hooper has been catching a ton of passes so he's clearly ahead of the pack for me in PPR. I would probably put Brate next. I think his production will be similar to McDonald's in that he won't catch a ton of passes but I think he'll have a higher TD upside due to less competition in the RZ (Evans is clear #1 option but will also get #1 attention, Barber isn't a real threat from close so he is likely fighting with Godwin for #2). I don't think Brate is a scrub I think he is an above average TE but definitely isn't O.J. Howard who is an athletic freak and much better blocker. McDonald has more competition not only for TDs but for snaps too with Jesse James getting some work. Everett is a promising talent but he is splitting snaps with Higbee which caps his upside and McVay doesn't have a great history of using his TEs. His usage is trending up with Kupp out but even in a game Goff threw 49 times he only was targeted 4 times (although scored 2 TDs which is promising but Gurley was injured too).

    With Trubisky banged up looks like I'm probably going to have to jump back on the ship. Top 5 QB upside less than 5 points downside let's get it.
  5. Kenny Golladay 2018 Outlook

    Yeah that schedule definitely doesn't look the greatest. If Jones comes back though there is a chance he draws some of those top corners and Golladay spends a decent portion of his time in the slot so he'll avoid them that way. I still have a tough time ranking Golladay outside of the top 20 at WR so I imagine he'll be in some playoff lineups especially with where he went in drafts.
  6. Saquon Barkley 2018 Outlook

    @Joe Odam It is more appropriate to discuss here but you need to put some respect on this kids name if you don't think he is one of the most physically gifted players to play the running back position. Heck, he is probably one of the most physically gifted players to ever play in the NFL. Stronger than Joe Thomas Quicker than DeSean Jackson Faster than Devin Hester Jumps higher than Julio Jones He is a freak in the weight room too. He set a variety of records at Penn State including power cleaning 405lbs, benching the same amount and idk what his max squat is but he made 5 reps at 525lbs look like child's play. He also ran a hand timed 4.33 40yd dash. Dude is a physical beast, no way around it. I'm not the only one who feels this way either, multiple NFL-heads have called him one of the best RB prospects ever.
  7. James Conner 2018 Outlook

    His coach and QB are actually smart enough to use him. There are only 6 WRs with more catches than him (in addition to 8th in carries), you can't tell me he'd get that type of usage everywhere even if he should (i.e. David Johnson). Additionally, he is actually a generational talent and probably the most physically gifted RB of all time. Even so how is this related to James Conner's fantasy outlook?
  8. James Conner 2018 Outlook

    Who can? If your o-line sucks, your coach doesn't know how to use you, your QB sucks and other teams stack the box or your team trails a ton you aren't going to get the same type of production regardless of how good you are. Remember Todd Gurley in 2016? Was DJ any less talented under McCoy than he was in 2016? Generational talent gets thrown around way too often so I agree he isn't that but that's a pretty high bar to set and is in no way a knock on Conner or provides much value in a conversation about Conner's fantasy outlook. Everyone knows situation/opportunity is king in fantasy football.
  9. Kerryon Johnson 2018 Outlook

    I think this fear is often overblown but I think you need to take each situation individually. The first time Fournette came back he went out again and due to the nature of his injury there was considerable fear of reinjury and uncertainty how the recent addition of Hyde would play into things. When he came back the 2nd time Jaguars season was already on the ropes so since he seemed to be holding up fine they rode him. Lion's season will likely be effectively over once he comes back so there is little reason to rush him back prematurely and instead make sure they knee fully heals and isn't something that will cloud his promising future. Therefore I agree that once he comes back he'll probably be fine since there is no point in really easing him back in prematurely.
  10. Cam Newton 2018 Outlook

    Stats are all that matters in fantasy football. Cam never has been a pretty QB to watch but his rushing ability is what makes him a fantasy stud. He has one of the best schedules down the stretch too.
  11. James Conner 2018 Outlook

    Eh most players have stinkers once in awhile. Heading into this week Conner had scored more than all of them except Gurley. His worst game in PPR is 9.4 pts which is better than Kamara, Zeke, DJ, Hunt and probably most running backs except a select few. If he isn't an elite talent he is the next best thing and he is definitely an elite fantasy option. His stinker games have more to do with Big Ben doing too much and him not getting enough touches. When he has gotten the ball he has produced, period. Prior to this season many didn't consider guys like Michael Thomas or Melvin Gordon elite talents but just that they had elite situations. I'm sure if Conner repeats his dominance next season then he'll be considered an elite talent. While I agree Bell is an elite talent I don't know how Conner putting up just as good if not better numbers in largely the same situation reflects poorly on Conner's ability.
  12. James Conner 2018 Outlook

    I'm surprised someone hasn't said "Le'veon Bell wouldn't have dropped that pass". Awful game for Pittsburg offense overall and not a good outing for Conner but with the 6 catches he was still able to crack double digits in PPR. Still probably only like 5 backs I'd take over him ROS.
  13. Tre'Quan Smith 2018 Outlook

    The Saints have been raving about the guy since training camp I'm pretty sure they knew he was talented. The issue is that they have Thomas and Kamara leading the show and Ingram taking significant touches. There is still plenty of fantasy value behind these guys but Smith is a luxury for the Saints not somebody they need to get the ball in order for their offense to run (as evidence by them scoring 51 last week with him not getting a single target). This performance obviously helps improve his stock but I still have an issue rating him higher than a WR3 given his lack of production thus far and the sudden jump from last week to this week. If he had gradually ramped up to this performance over several weeks I'd feel more comfortable about him carving out a role in this offense.

    Why did I trade for this guy 4 weeks ago?
  15. NFL Waiver Wire Thread 2018 Week 12

    I think TyMont would be a bigger threat than Dixon but even then they seem completely different style backs and a big back like Edwards pairs better with Jackson and the read option.
