    Wish I'd gotten to this guy in time in the two leagues where he was still available after the Hyde trade. The term "league winner" gets thrown around waaaayyy to often, but picking up a top 10 RB for free after week 8 fits the bill pretty clearly (like David Johnson his rookie year, Beckham his rookie year). Could be a league winner and I'm mad I missed out.
  2. 2018 "Cool Story, Bro!" Thread

    I play in a 12-team league with some relatives and their friends / coworkers, they have very weird scoring. 1 pt = 50 yds pass, 25 yds rec, 15 yds rush. 1ppr. No fractional scoring. All TDs 6pt. So yards are extremely devalued, therefore receptions are relatively worth even more than usual ppr, and TDs are relatively worth more. Kicker and defense points also relatively worth more. TLDR Through 8 weeks, my team is on pace to break the league's team scoring record by 15%.

    That makes him a buy low then, if you value him

    I agree with your point, but you picked a terrible Exhibit B to make your point-- Barkley has massive talent and is being fed the ball. The only thing that could make it better would be a legit pass game, a la the Rams. A better example might be TJ Yeldon, who doesn't have flashy talent but is fine and has had great opportunity, leading to him being RB 11 so far (ppg, 1/2 ppr).

    OP said "this year"
  6. Larry Fitzgerald 2018 Outlook

    Fitz is a HOFer, everyone agrees, but unless you're Calvin Johnson retiring at age 30, the decline is inevitable. I was hoping he had one more in the tank, but I think he's done, especially given the quality of the rest of the team around him. [Removed AC Content]
  7. Tarik Cohen 2018 Outlook

    Yeah. Coming into the year I was high on Howard, I thought this would be a big year for him. Traded for him a month ago, and traded him away yesterday. Looking at the trends it just doesn't seem like this is his year, especially given how well Cohen's performing. Doesn't mean he's bad irl, I'm just bailing for him to put up stats this year.

    Cobb's games played Would take much more in depth look to see how often he's dinged up or limited in games played, but he's not fully missed nearly as many games as people think. MVS could end up carving a role like you said, but it won't happen if 3 WRs ahead of him are healthy and playing, no offense can support 4 relevant WRs (not counting spot-starts due to injury)
  9. Patrick Mahomes II 2018 Outlook

    Correct. Several QBs are on pace to be well ahead of last year's QB1 (Wilson). If I could trade Mahomes for any top 5 RB I'd do it, but no way anyone with the RB does that. And if you paired Mahomes with another QB that's ended up top 10 (eg Goff), you won't be able to move either for what you think they're worth. Just have to enjoy the ride, Mahomes will likely finish as QB1 overall.
  10. James White 2018 Outlook

    Great. 13 opportunites / 11 touches last night, and always a good chance at a TD. Brady loves him, offense is clicking, he gets quality targets (including one deep in the endzone last night), and a few carries to boot. In this year's landscape he's way behind the top few RBs, but solidly in RB2 territory.
  11. Patrick Mahomes II 2018 Outlook

    Well, fantasypros guy was right. But it's really not a bold prediction for someone to finish outside the top 5, especially at QB. Even if Mahomes finishes in the 6-10 range all season he can still finish as a top 5 QB, since he'll be consistent where others who finish higher in a given week will put up some stinkers too. (e.g. Trubisky, Carr, Mariota, Bortles) QBs have low trade value since any QB can put up 30+ points in a week, but streamer options don't put up 20+ every week like Mahomes probably will. TLDR Mahomes is a top QB ros, even if he isn't a top 5 QB in a given week
  12. What do you need for SNF/MNF?

    Mahomes to score 35.5 or more (6 pt TDs). So just something like a measly 350 yards, 3 TDs, 35 yards rushing
  13. Todd Gurley II 2018 Outlook

    It's not just about winning the division but also trying to get the best seed for home field. It's extremely unlikely they have home field locked up after week 15 (they have more good teams on the schedule, they have 7 road games left and v east coast teams), and if they still need to win to get the 1 seed then they're gonna play for it. Week 16 is not a real concern, especially not after 3 weeks and 1 game
  14. Todd Gurley II 2018 Outlook

    Most players don't sit week 16 regardless of record. Maybe they come out early or something, but not sitting out the whole game
  15. Jared Goff 2018 Outlook

    Could easily finish top 2 qb, and it might not be close. Mahomes and Goff at the heads of two best offenses, this is why you wait on qb. Only question now is what to do if you have them both...
