    There are nothing but positives to be drawn from Hyde's 2017 campaign.  It started on draft day when the world became convinced that Hyde had no chance after Shanahan pounded the table for Williams.  Hyde was the undisputed starter when Week 1 arrived.

     

    Then, the chorus grew that  Hyde was too brittle to put in a full campaign.  He proved those folks wrong. 

     

    As the season wore on, Hyde toiled under poor QB play in an offense ill-suited to his skill set.  He produced well in PPR nevertheless.

     

    It is easy to forget how highly regarded Hyde was when he was pucked in the second round in 2014.  Durability is always a concern, but he's not going to roll over just because Chubb arrived.  If there is a real lead role to be had in Haley's offense (not just the full RBBC that Dorsey seems to envision), I would not automatically earmark it for Chubb.  Hyde will impress the CS with his character, his compete level and his all around skill set.  That you can take to the bank.

    People that draft Chubb are going to be in for a huge surprise.

     

    Hyde isn't AP. He is a very very talented RB. In fact, I would say he is top 10 from a pure talent perspective and in the prime of his career. Last year he suffered from a coach that clearly did not want him yet he still managed to produce. Go watch tape of Hyde and you will see how good of a player he is.

     

    As far as i'm concerned, Chubb is just added to the list of Browns being absolutely ******** stupid. They already picked up a very good RB. To at best maybe improve a bit at a position that isn't near the most important is the definition of stupid. Or the definition of Browns.

    Whether stupid or not, Dorsey has said he prefers RBBC.  Dorsey isn't the OC, but what are the odds that Haley has a totally different view?  If he does, Dorsey must not have bothered to check in with him before draft day.

     

    We know that both Hyde and Johnson have chops.  If Chubb looks good in PS too, how can a full blown 3 way timeshare not be the default in Cleveland?

     

    Then you have all those WRs, a stud TE, and two QBs who both are likely to be way better than anything we've seen there in years.  

     

    Personally, I believe that Cleveland will be a very productive offense this season.  That will benefit the backfield alot.  I just fear that the bigger pie will be sliced too evenly to yield a real difference-maker for us.

    I tend to agree.  Or at the very least-  might be decided by injuries and fumbling.   However, The price has gone down quite a bit on Hyde-  so I’m not dyometrically opposed just yet.   Could be a nice fourth rb dart.

    Even talented rookies make rookie mistakes, and a RPO heavy offense is far more well-suited to Hyde's skill set than the one he toiled valiantly in last season.  For a bargain price, I'll be throwing a dart or two as well.

    Chubb won't take over if 1. He doesnt pass protect better 2. learn the playbook and execute on it.   Coaches will dumb down the playbook for the rookie starter unless a more than capable vet is on the roster but they hate making exceptions for poor pass blocking

    I don’t think the Browns planned on Chubb being available where he was-    Which casts serious doubt on the short term role of either rb.  I will say- the reports about Chubb have been glowing.   lf that knee is right he’s the talent on the roster.  

     

    Another one of these situations that’s tempting to assume the rookie takes over sooner than later-  but we really have no clue when. 

     

    http://www.espn.com/nfl/story/_/id/23671886/2018-nfl-stat-projections-top-10-rookie-running-backs

     

    "ESPN Browns reporter Pat McManamon: It's early in the process, but Chubb has a chance to be the Browns' starting running back. Chubb's between-the-tackles ability and his work ethic will earn him a long look in training camp and preseason. It would not be surprising to see Chubb get the bulk of the every-down carries, especially early in games. The competition will be intriguing. The Browns did sign Carlos Hyde to go with Duke Johnson, in addition to drafting Chubb. But Hyde's tough running would be valuable in short-yardage, red zone and fourth-quarter situations -- assuming the Browns have games when they are protecting a late lead. Johnson's role won't change; he'll be the change-of-pace back, the weapon out of the backfield."

     

    I think that drafting Hyde at current ADP makes sense; it means that Hyde isn't viewed as an RB1. I don't think that any of those backs can be viewed as more than flex options ATM, even in PPR. 

     

    Shanahan is a special coach so I don't see Hyde catching 59 passes again,  he had 50 combined receptions in the three years prior to 2017. He hasn't been a high volume rusher, I think he tops out at 16 rushes/game. Which isn't awful, but he was the feature back. Duke has had 188 receptions in three years. Chubb should eat into Hyde's touches. This doesn't mean Hyde doesn't have value, it just means that expectations should be tailored. 

     

    Chubb probably won't be a breakout stud. I like him, but he has a bad FF situation.

    Hyde probably won't be better than what he's been and could regress. I like him, but he has a bad FF situation.

    Duke will probably be what he is, a little upside here because of Haley. I like him, but he has a bad FF situation.

    "To be fair, Giants All-Pro safety Landon Collins has said Webb routinely launches balls deep over the secondary’s heads, while rookie running back Saquon Barkley calls it the strongest arm he’s ever seen. When Webb hears what Barkley said, he simply smiles because he already knows that. He prides himself on his arm."

    Someone in this thread  is REALLY trying to convince themselves that the backup QB Webb who has yet to take a snap in a NFL game and even had Geno Smith play ahead of him last season is the next Eli. . .:lol:

    Thank you - I love how quickly people are to dismiss a well documented “project” who was never going to see the field last year under any circumstance (and literally everything that could go wrong did last year) ... the Mcadoo/Geno debacle was a desperate attempt of a coach trying to “shake things up” and save his job ... 

     

    He was literally fired the next day. This notion that Webb “couldn’t beat Geno” is absurd - he was never expected to see snaps in 2017 from the beginning. 

     

    I am a Webb owner and I'm seriously considering doubling down on Giants project QBs with Lauletta. I was a lot higher on Webb before they drafted another 3rd round QB. Lauletta feels more like a QB in the mold of Eli than Webb does. Here is still to hoping Webb can be the future there.

    I am intrigued by Kelly but won't use a 1st or early second on him so i probably won't get the chance to grab any shares. 

     

    Michel is a top 5 prospect in this class IMO. I like Chubb and Guice more. 

     

    The only concern i have with Penny is his pad protection. I think it will limit his playing time. 

     

    Thanks for sharing those links.

    John Kelly seems to be a late riser with a lot of the fantasy/film nerds (Norris, Silva, Zachariason).  I'm watching his landing spot very closely.

     

    5'9 205lb is too small for a workhorse, but sufficient for some kind of meaningful volume, and his tape looks really damn good.  Size and tape looks a lot like Devonta Freeman.  And we know that Tennesee RBs, a lot like LSU wide receivers, underachieve during college because of their crappy offensive coaching.  Just look at Kamara coming out of UT (Kelly was more efficient than him when they both played on the same team in 2016).

     

    I agree. One worry I have is that Kelly will go too high. Even with a good landing spot I don't know that he is better than the first few tiers of guys in this class. I see him as a mid to late 2nd PPR and I think he will go too early to be worth value.

    "Three power-conference players and two mid-major stars."

     

    Since when is Keenum a mid-major star?  He's had one year of relevancy. 

     

     

    I remember when Keenum was in school. I was really excited for him to go to the NFL, it was before I understood the differences between college and the pros in scheme and talent. He tore it up for three years, it was really disappointing when he got hurt in 2010, I was glad he got a do-over in 2011. Unless, as the other posts indicate you thought that the article was referencing his pro production when it said "mid-major star". In that case:

    Below is a chart of Allen's 2017 games vs the top 50 NAAF Div I defenses and the bottom 50. I expected more WAC teams to be in the bottom 50, but I guess it is the WAC so the offenses aren't great either. In the 7 games listed, he is a combined 88/173 or 50.8% with 972 yds and 8 tds. He completed 57% of his passes against New Mexico for 4 of the remaining 8 tds. The other three games landed him with games well over 60% passing [combined: 64/97 or  65.9%] <-- one of those was Gardner-Webb.

     

    The idea that he helped elevate his team isn't fleshed out. He loses to 3/4 top 50 defenses. Being 8-3 as a starter is great but he had the 23 ranked defense in the nation and only played 4 top 50 defenses. He didn't even play against the toughest defense his team faced, his backup wen 20-32/231/1td. 

     

    Those were not hard defenses he was going against, that's what I called it the JV. Hawaii is the 16th worst defense and he only completed 9 passes. Texas State was the 28th worst defense and he only completed 14 passes.

    I like ESB. I'm hoping that he ends up being the Raven's plan. Because I've seen Ridley mocked out in the first round to BAL and I'm convinced that would kill him. ESB feels like a Ravens type player, which gives me hope that he can be the yearly sacrifice and Ridley will live.

    Yes, that was my point, all of the examples you gave graduated and none of them are even starters (except I did miss Chase). Allen should have declared that year because he had nothing to work with the next.

     

    Your example is still not fitting the skill discrepancy in Wyoming compared to the MWC. It isn't a junior high team playing other comparable junior high teams. And for the record he took a team that was 2-10 (with no winning season in four years) and took them to 8-6 and 8-5, so I don't understand how he didn't elevate them.

    Nothing about these QBs suggests “sure thing”

     

    This “must take a QB” nonsense is why so many early QBs are busts while elite talent falls down draft boards (Bortles ... Mack, Evans, Beckham, Donald, ... D. Carr taken in the second round) 

     

    Locker and Gabbert over JJ Watt - gotta have a QB!

     

    Jamarcus Russel over AP, Megatron, Joe Thomas (3 HOFers) - gotta have a QB!

    It’s obviously an important position ... but quite frankly I’ll take Webb in 2 years (he was drafted as a project - tools are all there) surrounded by Barkley, Beckham, Engram, Shepard over any of these QBs 

     

    Foles, Keenum, Bortles, and a 6th round pick we’re the “final 4” QBs this year - and yet, you have to get your QB early 

     

    I'm struggling to find more recent stats. From 2002-2012 35% of first round picks made at least one pro bowl. 50% of o-linemen made it. Otherwise, the next "safest" offensive position is QB at 30%, RB at 29%, and WR at 27%. So, drafting is risky. Chances are the guy your team drafts won't pan out. He'll get traded, get cut, be a bust, or under-perform. The draft is for selling hope aka losers. It's one of the reasons why I would trade two high profile picks for OBJ. If I'm any of those top 10 picks I'm calling with my 1st and as high as my 2nd. (assuming I get him signed as part of the deal) Imagine him in SF.

    How valuable are the 2018 rookie picks when considering trades for established talents (ie. Gurley, Bell, Brown, Hopkins, etc).  I am in need of RB and WR help, and talks are underway involving T. Gurley and T. Hill for my 1.02, 1.03, 1.12, 2.06, and my 2019 1st round pick.  Am I crazy for considering this trade?  

     

    Personally i think that is too high for hill and Gurley alone. I don't like buying a player coming of their best year and a player who is transitioning qbs. See if you can do it without the 2019 1st. I'd wait to make a deal until closer to your draft, those picks will only grow in value. Don't trade now. I'd definitely trade for veterans of your ready to win now. Assuming you didn't earn the 1.02 or 1.03.

    Are there any current NFL starters that played with Wyoming? The best receiver he had was Tanner Gentry and had his best season. He was on a team absolutely bereft of talent.

     

    Tanner Gentry (WR), Jacob Hollister(TE), and Brian Hill (RB) were on that team right? And Chase Roullier was his center. An additional question to the NFL talent he played with is what NFL talent did he play against? If he is a top 32 NFL QB then he should make a Mountain West squad even better, like putting a Senior on a junior high squad.

    Is it that he can't make reads, or that he just can't throw the ball accurately?  You can make a perfectly good read and do everything right mentally but still be "off" with your throw physically.

     

     

     

    It's not that he can't make reads as much as his penchant to panic. He gives up quickly on reads and runs. It's hard to know whether it's a lack of patience or an inability to understand what is unfolding. He just lacks awareness in the pocket. Sarcasm aside, these scores do make me think it is a lack of discipline. I could see him benefiting from two years learning behind a decision maker like Tyrod.

    Really? Very impressed with Allen actually, thought he would be a teens guy for sure

     

    The game tape makes me question Josh Allen's ability to process information and make decisions. This 80 year old test is definitely a valid evaluation of game intelligence.

    One of my issues with pff is that they do not adjust their grades for quality of competition (at either the NFL or NCAA level).

     

    Quick example of how this flaw is significant imo - their week 17 grades for the SF players were stellar and didn't take into account that SF played against Rams backups.  Yet those numbers all factored into both the weekly and season long grades for the SF guys.

     

    How does that apply to Mayfield?  Oklahoma plays in an absolute joke of a conference defensively.

     

    I've had that concern myself. If you have a chance listen to this pod from Eliot Crist. He talks with Scott Barrett of PFF. About midway through Scott really nerds out on how to try to put players on a similar field of comparison.

    An interesting video, highlights some of my concerns with guices vision. Games from 16 and 17.

     

    Looked great the 16 season, hampered by injuries in his 17 season which made the tape look relatively average. I battle with guice vs michel as my RB3. Still a great player, but an interesting take none the less for those of you holding that 1.02.

     

    1.05 is my favorite spot currently. Without knowing landing spot I like Michel, Penny, Guice, and Chubb about equally (their skill sets are diverse).

    What about the Redskins or Lions? If a high pick is spent in either of these locations, I feel good about that person getting the majority of the work.

    Ok we are considering true starter vacancies different then. For example, I consider Joe Mixon the lead back even though Gio Bernard is lock down 3rd down back. Mixon will still get some catches though. I think the same thing could happen with whoever those two teams draft

    Even though Bernard is a legit threat, Mixon has at least the chance of being a three down RB because he is a great receiver. None of the RBs DET or WAS will take are going to be even close to the receiving talents that Thompson/Riddick already are, which makes them gameflow dependent, TD-dependent volatile options with very low floors.

     

    Just now, mrschrod said:

     

    Both Ronald Jones and Kerryon Johnson have above average pass catching skills, with the former just not getting enough work to show it. if those guys went to either Detroit or Washington, i could see them getting alot of work in the running and passing games

     

    @joshua18 honest question, hasn't Thompson had some major injury issues? I feel like his window may have already closed. 

     

    Detroit is a mess, I'm surprised Blount got signed by any team particularly this team. Riddick, Abdullah (talk about injuries), and Blount. That already feels crowded. If they take a rookie I'd look for one of these to get cut/traded and it could be Riddick. (they also resigned Zach Zenner but I don't think that affects this conversation)

     

    I assumed that the intent of stating the depth for this class was particularly referenced [NFL Teams with RB Needs] + [Rookie RB Talent] = [Fantasy Starters]

     

    If that wasn't the intent then I'd like us to add that layer to the conversation.

    I don't know that Kamara would be considered the "true starter" in NO yet he was an immediate impact guy. I agree that there are only a few teams where there is a 3 down back opportunity. However, there are only 1 to 5 three-down backs in this draft (I feel like Michel, Chubb, Guice, Penny all have 3 down potential). At that point we start looking at fit and there are probably 18 teams that have 1) some desire to draft a RB and 2) the fit for one of these guys to make a difference. Perrine might have had a chance in a different situation, now he is fantasy dead in WAS.

    We got a lot of health returning. We finally got rid of Rick Smith (addition by subtraction), and our secondary is starting to look tough IMO. 

     

    I'm excited for what we have cooking in the kitchen. 

     

    Yeah, it'd be cool to have draft picks, but you can't have everything you want. 

     

    AFC South going from joke conference to one of the league's best IMO, but as long as the Jags are married to Bortles and Colts refuse to protect Luck we got this.

    You didn't even mention maybe the most exciting part of all for the Texans...Mr. Watson.

    Between Kelemete, Martin, Fulton at G/C/G they should at least be good running the ball up the gut.

    I like this team, I'm excited to watch Watson hopefully for a full year.  Hopkins is elite.  I like Will Fuller a lot.   

    Still unsure if this defense EVER stays healthy though, and the division is finally tough overall.

    Wow. Landed honey badger. Guess that means we'll have another season of below average corner play from KJack

     

    Draft Picks:

    3rd Round (68th overall)
    3rd Round (80th overall, from Seattle)
    3rd Round (98th overall, compensatory)
    4th Round (103rd overall)
    6th Round (177th overall)
    6th Round (211th overall, compensatory)
    6th Round (214th overall, compensatory)
    7th Round (222nd overall)

     

    Any chance they try to grab one of these RBs in the 3rd? I think this draft is deep enough with talent that they should be able to add solid contributors with their three picks before 100ovr.

     

    I think this offense should roll especially with guys getting acclimated to each other. I'm disappointed to see Lamar Miller still in Houston and who knows about Foreman after the injury. This team was rolling when Watson was healthy. I think that year two should prove to be a playoff push especially if they can keep up offensive protection. They could use another d-back too.

     

    What do you guys think they do with their draft?

    PFF is in love with Mayfield. It is one of the reasons why I'm considering him as my QB1 in the draft. Matt Waldman has me high on Rosen; I really like the pedigree there. Right now my Fantasy QBs are

     

    1. Rosen

    2. Mayfield

    3. Darnold

    4. Jackson

    5. Allen

     

    It was easy for me to push Darnold to 3 because it appears he'll be the no. 1 and could easily be on the bench for two years, one at the least.

    Jackson has so much potential as a fantasy machine but I really want to see where he lands. Right now I'm grading him like a RB where I would expect 4 quality years from him. He has potential to move up if I like his landing spot, but he'll need good draft pedigree and a stable situation, two things that are hard to come by, LAC comes to mind. I think Allen has great potential but he needs the Rodgers treatment (similar to Jackson, but without the elite wheels).

    Dynastyleaguefootball march rookie ADP has the earliest coming at an average of 1.05 (Sutton) out of 10 drafts. I think you could argue a few spots here or there depending on landing spot/type of league etc, but id say right around the 1.06 id start considering a WR.

    Thanks, man, I feel like I'd rather have any of Barkley, Guice, Chubb, Michel, and Penny before one of the WRs. So 5/6 feels about right to me.
