    If his surgery was on the same leg and it was a hamstring graft repair... makes sense. I thought coming back from an ACL was realistically 12 months minimum. I know there are some superfreaks who do it in 9, but that is very much the exception rather than the norm.

    How many punts did he attempt to return? Was probably given orders to fair-catch them, and coach thinks he has the safest pair of hands.

    Even week this week. Start with confidence.
  4. Amari Cooper 2018 Outlook

    Cooper is good in even weeks only. This is an odd week. You do the math.
  5. If you use Kelce's left foot as a rough reference, that pass is thrown and caught at the 4yd line. That's a lateral pass, and certainly not forward. He's reaching back to catch it. We get a challenge flag a season each, yeah?

    1 x fumble return for TD at pivotal moment in game. Goodbye, Gillislee. We barely knew thee.
  7. Le'Veon Bell 2018 Outlook

    Realistically though, what kind of people are pissed off? The Steelers? I don't think he'll really give a toss if that's the case. The only people he needs to convince are 31 other GM's who will be vying for his services next season.

    Absof***inglutely. Teams won't bat an eyelid to cut you when it's financially viable for them. Bell should do everything in his power to make bank while he can. If he thinks sitting for 10 weeks increases his value on the FA market, then do it.

    Especially if you are picking late and are backed into going WR-WR in the first 2 rounds. Flood the late rounds with lottery picks - other than one other WR as a flex and one for bye weeks, and given the amount of WR2-able guys left on the waiver wire, there's little need to roster more than 4WR's if you are not set at RB. More lotto tickets = more chances of hitting jackpot.

    Maybe. I would still take DJ then start entertaining trades with the team that went WR-WR early to take your WR of choice + a few other upgrades. AB + possibly Julio + upgrade for RB depth could be a league-killer.
  11. Mark Ingram 2018 Outlook

    If you as a potential Ingram owner are that worried about Williams taking Ingram's job, take them both. Heck, take them both a round apart. If you think that role is an RB1, tell me you wouldn't blindly trade your 5th and 6th round picks for a top-12 RB before the season started.

    "No timetable for return". Four words that strike fear into every fantasy footballer.
  13. Kenneth Dixon 2018 Outlook

    I reckon that last game was to see what they had in Dixon - while they've been high on him, he has played precious little football in the last few years. Honestly, he will be on or around the roster bubble, competing with UDFA's like Gus Edwards to make the team. Collins is a lock, as is Allen. I think they'll only keep 3 RB's as they have a lot of DE's, OLB's and corners they like, along with probably 3 QB's since Lamar isn't ready for the NFL yet. Every year there seems to be a surprise roster cut or two from each team. I'd make sure he makes the 53 before we go any further.

    Yeah I think if you play in a league that is phobic to missing RB's in the first round, starting at OBJ and Julio at the turn makes the decision for you
  15. 2018 Draft Strategy

    Hi everyone, long time lurker, first time poster. Drafting in 2 weeks (just before 4th pre-season game); pick 7, QB/2RB/2WR/RB-WR-TE flex/6BN, 0.5PPR with 4pt passing td's. I have been mucking around a lot with my rosters, and I find it all coming down to what I do with the first round. General consensus is that 4 RB's + AB will be off board; guessing 6 goes Barkley, Kamara or Hopkins. I've been trying RB at 7 only because the options in the 2nd and 3rd scare me. One weird trend that has been working for me has been taking two tights ends; specifically aiming for Gronkowski (2nd) and Jimmy Graham (4th); I'm justifying this compared to comparable WR's located at this ADP junction (Gronk vs AJ and Evans; Graham vs Jeffrey / ARob / Cooks) The only weak spot (?) I think I've found so far has been WR (if an option like Baldwin or Diggs isn't there in the 3rd I am resigned to Larry Fitzgerald); my 5th-rounder is then spent on a starting-caliber WR2 or (ideally) Mark Ingram + pairing him with an RB in later rounds that I know will be good for maybe the first 4-5 games (e.g. James White; Carlos Hyde; Chris Carson) - someone who will hold off a rookie for just long enough. The 2TE theory I've been trying also has the "advantages" of 1) a degree of robustness at the thinnest positon in the league; 2) immense TD upside; and 3) the ideal opportunity to package Graham in a trade to "chip-up" if I start the year well; conversely, could combine with Ingram after the suspension is over to a RB-needy team (and they will be out there). I suspect my ideal lineup will be flexing Gronkowski and hoping my WR's can perform to or out-perform ADP. Does this seem like A-grade bollocks, or do you think it carries some merit?
