  1. Emmanuel Sanders 2018 Outlook

    I like both Denver WR's to rebound this year with what should be decent QB play. The QB situation last year was atrocious. I'm hoping to land either guy to be honest, but Sanders is the value I like best. His ADP is in the 90's currently, compared to DT's in the 40s.
  2. Amari Cooper 2018 Outlook

    Man this guy is really hard to rank this year. The talent is immense, and if he finished as a WR1 it would surprise few people. However, the fact that he had what amounts to ZERO production in a third of his games is just impossible to ignore. He's a true roll of the dice imo. I have picks #32 (3rd) and #40 (4th) in a 12 teamer and I am interested in him. I remember having a similar question about Deandre Hopkins last year, and he proved to be a steal at his draft slot. I do like the Gurley comparison too from a glass half full perspective, but man he was so bad for the vast majority of the games that it's hard to invest too early in him. Depending on the board, I'd totally consider him at pick #40, but I think the names available at #32 will likely make drafting Cooper there too much of a risk to take.
  3. Kenyan Drake 2018 Outlook

    The ceiling on this kid is extremely high. Unfortunately, it appears that the coaching staff might be high too, and may not feature Drake the way they should.
  4. Jordan Howard 2018 Outlook

    Nice list and tiers. I feel a little different on some guys, but not much. I do agree with the "tier 1 > Barkley > Next tier" view. I think Barkley should be the 5th RB off the board. After that is where it gets a little more particular, and become a little more about personal preference. Nice work bud.
  5. Isaiah Crowell 2018 Outlook

    He could produce RB2/3 numbers as an 8th rounder.
  6. Saquon Barkley 2018 Outlook

    I'm all in on this kid if I can't get Bell/DJ/Gurley/Zeke or Antonio Brown. He should be a real consideration at pick #6 and right after. I want him at pick #8 in a 12 team, but I doubt he makes it.
  7. Best Snake Draft Position 2018

    Ideally you want to be at the top in a spot before the tier cut off is. This year that's probably pick 4, or 5 if you are ok with Antonio Brown (who isn't right?). This guarantees you one of the 4 elite backs or AB, and puts you in position to draft 3 of the top 25 or so players. Every year is a little different, but this year I think if you're not in that top 4 or 5 picks, then it's best to be at the back end of the first. Picks 11 & 12 are very desirable this year. The first 14-18 picks are very deep so there really isn't a poor spot imo, but ideal is top 5, or 11/12.
  8. Leonard Fournette 2018 Outlook

    Here's my worry with Fournette, aside from the injury worries. Last year he had 2 long TD runs. A 90 & 75 yard TD run. He had 1040 yards with a 3.88 YPC. Every run counts I know, but if you remove those 2 runs, he averaged 3.29 YPC. Again, every touch counts, but my concern is that he might be a 3 yards and a cloud of dust type back. His ceiling could be low, and at pick 7 or 8 I think he's a risk worth avoiding. I'd personally prefer the safer Gordon or Hunt, and I'd absolutely take a shot with Barkley over him. If you pick at the turn and these guys are all gone, then I got not problem taking Fournette. He is the man in Jax, and he will dominate touches at the very least, but I put him at the back end of this RB tier.
  9. Melvin Gordon 2018 Outlook

    Gordon might be the safest pick in that second tier at RB. I have pick 8 in a 12 team and I expect to be chosing from Gordon, Hunt, Cook, Fournette and Kamara with a slim possibility that Barkley makes it there. Of this group I think Barkley is at the top, then it really comes down to personal preference. Gordon, based on age, recent performance, the offense, and touches might be the safest pick in this group (outside of Barkely). Cook is explosive but has the knee. Fournette has the touches but gets dinged, and had 2 very long TD runs last year that skewed his numbers a bit. Hunt has all the talent, but was very erratic production wise, and Kamara never had more than 12 carries in a game. It's going to be fun to look back at seasons end and see which RBs from this group performed, and which didn't, but to me Gordon is primed for a solid to very good season.
  10. Allen Robinson 2018 Outlook

    I don't mind rolling the dice on Arob as a WR2, but I would only take him as a 4th, more 5th rounder. I love the talent, but there are a lot of unknowns here. Is he healthy, is he the same player post ACL, is he a fit in this offense, will he be a true #1 option with this group, and is Trubisky capable of getting him the ball? I'm more half full on Arod, but there are some real questions here. Hopefully we'll get some better intel in the coming weeks for those of us who draft right before the season starts.
  11. Stephen Gonsalves 2018 Outlook

    The walks are a bit much imo. In Roto he's a no. In a points league he might be worth a flyer. He's walked 4+/9 his entire minor league career.
  12. Miguel Andujar 2018 Outlook

    I'd love to see Machado in a Yankees uniform next year, but this kid might make that a luxury more than a necessity. He does need to improve his defense. He's not atrocious in the field so he could become a solid/servicable glove at the position with time and practice. Love the bat.
  13. Dustin Fowler 2018 Outlook

    Good thing my Yankees got Sonny Gray in that deal.
  14. 2018 WR Rankings and Discussion

    In my ignorant opinion, as I haven't considered this till I just dropped in this thread, I'd say there are 2 notable reasons for the drop from previous seasons. One would be teams spreading the field & ball around. Traditionally a team would have it's #1 Wr and force feed the ball a little bit. It seems like teams are now using a little more of the college style with more shotgun, 3+ WR sets. This isn't fact based so I could be wrong. I'd be curious to see if there's an increase in WR's who have 700+ yards or so. I wouldn't be surprised if that pool of players has grown at the expense of the WR's at the top. The other possible factor is the crappy QB'ing on so many teams. Like someone else mentioned earlier. Consider the QB's who started a chunk of games for their teams last year, and it's not hard to see why there would be a dip in elite WR numbers. TY had no Luck for example (literally and figuratively), Beckham was injured and Goodwin had 2 trash QB's till Jimmy G showed up. With 16 games of Jimmy G, Goodwin might have been one of those elite WR's. 5 QB's went in the first round this year. These guys didn't get drafted because the teams had excellent QB situations.
  15. Cody Bellinger 2018 Outlook

    Lets hope this guy is going to go on a nice run down the stretch. He's certainly capable of having a real hot streak like he did earlier this season.
