  1. David Johnson 2018 Season Outlook

    The fact that DJ's high point total is safe and that even in your loftiest expectations SB doesn't "blow him away" is exactly why logical drafters would take DJ over SB. I could understand if you thought DJ was going to bust and end up with 1400 total yards and 8 total tds on a 2-14 Cardinals team this year, but if you think that DJ is going to have a good season then SB would need to have one of the most productive rookie seasons of all time, way better than AP, Hunt, Sanders to warrant taking him above DJ. We're talking Zeke, Edge James, Earl Campbell territory here.
  2. David Johnson 2018 Season Outlook

    While I would definitely feel more comfortable with DJ if he had a healthy and capable Carson Palmer than the current QBs I'm not sure that DJ needs to be among the leagues most effective leader rushers to have a classic DJ season. In his big season 2 years ago he had about 1200 yards rushing with 4.2 ypc with a pretty bad O-line. This year with more loaded fronts I don't see any reason why he can't still have a 2017 Jordan Howard-type season rushing (1100-1200 yards, 4.1 ypc) and then tag on his 75 catches for 70-800 or so yards for 1900 total yards with 12-14 total TDs. That would still be a monster season and possibly #1 overall RB #s barring injury and with some more TDs. And that's with Zona being terrible.
  3. Geronimo Allison 2018 Season Outlook

    This offense is not and will not succeed as a dink-and-dunk offense where the WR1 puts up #s and then a bunch of guys have 300-600 yards receiving and 2-3 touchdowns. The only times we've seen that with the Packers in the past are when the major contributors like Jordy or Cobb miss chunks of if not entire seasons and there is no one on the roster with enough experience running with the 1s to step up and get volume. I would hope and think that with this entire off-season a guy would emerge to be an every-snap WR2 and that guy would have a floor of 75/800/6 and a ceiling over 1000 yards and 10 tds. If I can get Allison, the guy who on paper has the best chance to secure that role, in the 13th round after the likes of Kenny Stills, Danny Amendola, and Josh Doctson I'm taking it.
  4. Jerick McKinnon 2018 Outlook

    Well obviously those are the questions surrounding him, I don't think anyone on either side would argue that and everyone's points on the matter are on the record. We allowed to have other fantasy football related conversations on this forum.
  5. Jerick McKinnon 2018 Outlook

    I'm not going to go that far...in the 2017 fantasy playoffs he scored less than 7 points twice. But he did perform better in the 2016 fantasy playoffs like you said, posting 12.8, 16.1, and 13.5 points respectively. I just wonder how many playoff caliber teams were starting a guy who averaged less than 10 pts/wk that year.
  6. Jerick McKinnon 2018 Outlook

    The guy who had him in my league that year was definitely butthurt, but it probably had more to do with him finishing in 2nd to last place than it did him quitting on JMcK.

  8. 2018 RB Rankings

    In fairness to CJ Spiller he had 1700 yards from scrimmage and 8 touchdowns in 2012. You'd need to combine McKinnon's last 2 seasons to get those stats. That being said I'm a bit gun-shy on McKinnon as well. As I've said before I'm not sure he's got the make-up to be a workhorse back in the NFL. Looks like he might get the opportunity to play the Devonta Freeman role in a Shanahan offense which is interesting as a late 2nd, early 3rd rd pick even though he's not nearly as talented as Freeman. The problem is if he's entrenched in the No 1 role come game 3 of the pre-season and plays well you're going to have to pay an RB1 price for him most likely given the hype we're already seeing.
  9. Saquon Barkley 2018 Season Outlook

    I disagree. While there is most likely a weak-at best correlation of Buy-In vs Skill, there is most likely some correlation between the ratio of (total income/$ spent on fantasy football) and how good one is at fantasy football (ie the odds of winning). If you look at the best daily fantasy players in the world they all put up huge $ on a daily basis because they believe that their system will work and have confidence that their big investment will reap returns. Now back to Barkley
  10. Saquon Barkley 2018 Season Outlook

    FFtoday PPR projections are out and they have Barkley ranked as the No 14 RB with: 248 Att. | 1115 Yds Rushing | 8 Rush TD | 35 Rec | 35 Rec | 255 Yds Rec | 2 Rec TD = 226 PPR Pts From what I've been hearing about his pass catching ability this is a little light on the receiving side. Giants' backs average around 100 receptions over the last 3 years. Granted a lot of that has been bc of Vereen who is a specialist, but I still think that if in a workhorse role Barkley is due for over 50 catches this year.
  11. Jordan Reed 2018 Season Outlook

    That's why you should always check with your doctor if something doesn't seem right down there.
  12. Jordan Reed 2018 Season Outlook

    The NFL's greatest fear has to be a player dying on the field of a head injury...that being said Jordan Reed should retire.
  13. Saquon Barkley 2018 Season Outlook

    That's like saying that every Super Bowl winning qb was once under 5 feet tall because they were short when they were 8 years old. The best QBs are the best QBs regardless of when we realize it-not saying that Dilfer, Johnson, Flacco, Foles are not among the best - they are outliers.
  14. Saquon Barkley 2018 Season Outlook

    I'm not arguing about the Giants draft anymore, it's grown exhausting. My post is directed at those who think that teams realistically have a shot at winning Super Bowls with QBs that have question marks. Also the Giants starter at QB is going to be a Eli Manning so let's not start wishcasting a successful Giant's season that doesn't involve a 2 time Super Bowl MVP, most-likely Hall of Fame QB.
  15. Saquon Barkley 2018 Season Outlook

    No he's not! He's the best backup in the league!!!
