  1. Yeah, unpopular is an understatement. I think there's an inherent understanding with a contract as large as Diggs' that he will be used to his fullest. Maximizing his talent is good for both the team and Diggs, as he looks forward to maintaining the same market value when it's time to sign another contract. I think Thielen and Diggs both have a reason to be unhappy with the direction this Vikes team is headed, after last years' passfest. Wins are wins, but the picture that was originally painted at contract signing is no longer the same.
  2. Y'all confused if you think "league winning" has to mean that he scores 40 points. League winning can be "Saquon went down and it's either Duke or Rojo." Lots of championships are DIRTY. Also not sure how everyone "knows" Rojo won't be a *bonafide* league winner. Seems to me that most folks have been wrong about him so far........
  3. Agree here, there are still many reasons to temper expectations. This kind of thing can change in a week if he blows up, though. At that point you'll be looking backwards wishing you'd made a move. They don't all work out, but lotto tickets like these are what win championships.
  4. I fully agree with you. I also would not be trading for Howard, nor would I feel comfortable starting him barring a Miles injury or thin bench. Neither of these guys is startable. The reason you hang onto Howard is so you can plug him in a pinch. The reason you hang onto Miles is that there's a chance he can be a home run hitter as soon as the end of this season. IMO.
  5. Seems like there are a lot of folks here who meant to post in the Howard thread... My take: they both looked good for different reasons. Some concerns remain with Miles (notably the ball security as others have noted balls almost coming loose) but he also flashed and demonstrated progress from his first few games. Yesterday’s game was probably best case scenario for dynasty owners, and decently positive for redraft as well - as the stage may be set for a late 2019 season boom. I try to consider this in the context of Miles’ development as a player. Remember he only started ONE season at Penn. This sort of a start to the season, while not gratifying to drooling redrafters expecting instant profit, is very promising. And to those of you comparing Miles:Howard, remember Howard had 3x the college carries and three FULL years of NFL experience under his belt. It just isn't a fair comparison to make at the overall player level. Yet. Fantasy football isn’t a point in time. It’s a trending chart. At this trajectory, Miles' chart is just getting started.
  6. I think y'all may be oversimplifying this. Diontae is going to get more looks but Washington will likely have as many air yards (on fewer targets). Ultimately it'll boil down to who does more with their slice of pie.
  7. I wouldn't let it sway you too much. He admitted he was purposely playing differently in preseason to see which guys would fight for balls. There may be other reasons to be cautious but this should definitely not be one of them.
  8. Haha - word! Well he'll be a hot waiver add the week Ingram goes down.
  9. Hill is *slightly* faster. Like a Lambo is slightly faster than a Prius. EDIT: In case it wasn't obvious, IMO Hill and Dixon are not even remotely in the same category. They both play 3rd downs but that's where the similarities end.
  10. Honestly WTF!!! It wasn't the helmet, it was the visor/guard apparently. Which he's had all season...
  11. So now that Ben is out for the season, Washington's college QB is going to be to be throwing to him again...? And this thread is on the 8th page??? Did anyone see any of the preseason? BUCKLE UP FOLKS!!!
  12. Congrats on the the right choice! Anyone in here have any reason to believe this (Preston >>> Devante) isn't what everyone should be doing...? Cause I sure don't.
  13. Good stuff, but you're not accounting for Martavis. He really skews things from 2014-15... he could have been the original Juju were it not for weed. No dog in this fight just thought it was worth mentioning.
  14. More polished, yes. Better, nah.
  15. Won't argue with you here. I think he's extremely mediocre. Flashes of athletic brilliance + bad hands and focus = MEH. I would almost certainly drop him for Washington immediately. But I also expect they might feature Diontae this weekend. We'll see in a few days
  16. Go with your gut, but also realize that Washington and Dionate will be long gone off waivers by the time everyone realizes Moncrief is a true bust. I think the Colts figured it out. EDIT: Seriously, take a look at this (albeit very small play) highlight posted in the Diontae thread. Moncrief hasn't made a single one-handed catch like that in his career. When you see flashes like THIS, pay close attention. I remember seeing it during the game and going WOW!!!
  17. Gonna quote myself here cause it seems even more obvious now. Steelers are very good at drafting receivers, and no so great trading for them. I think they brought Moncrief in for the veteran presence - hopeful their own guys would beat him out.
  18. Ugh, I really hope they let him rest rather than rushing (ha) back. Wonder if Gruden isn't forcing it given the position he's in... also wonder if Guice feels like he needs to prove something given all of his time off. Bryce Love in the background can't be helping either.
  19. FWIW I agree with you. Also worth clarifying my original statement - when I said Kittle mojo, I meant mojo. Not playstyle. Ravens have some creative plays up their sleeve and Mark Andrews is going to be in a lot of them.
  20. In the way that Andrews is a receiving TE with a knack for YAC, and is also a very good football player with a fiery personality. Agree that their body types lend themselves to different playstyles. Andrews seems somewhere between Kittle and Delanie Walker.
  21. Nailed it. I'm confident Andrews would have taken over eventually even without that injury. He's a great player/leader and has a chip on his shoulder. He has some of that Kittle mojo.
  22. Mark is the guy. Won the Mackey in 2017. Those other guys are pretty good blockers...
  23. I love the excitement over in the Waller thread. He's legit, no doubt, but a large part of the reason he beasted early in the game was because DEN had their eyes on Tyrell. That touchdown (for his first look of the game) was a thing of beauty. Going to be a fun season. Congrats to those who had faith early.
  24. Lol - I like where you're going with this. No doubt Duke was likely way overdrafted on any assumptions of workhorse duties, but I'm also highly skeptical Hyde will be a *continuous* thorn. I'll believe it more after a few more games... Strangely I think we're going to see a lot of Duke point totals that would have been similar to Lamar's. Both would still be TD dependent with Flexable floors.
  25. I still think Preston Williams is the guy you want. Fitz has apparently taken him under his wing. There's a hunger there. Devante just doesn't have the alpha attitude no matter how hard he tries. EDIT: Over time it seems he's been working on that alpha, but there's still something missing. I think maybe he's just good at leaping catches but not good at football.
