    Yes.... John McClain. Long-time Texans reporter. BoB is a Belly disciple. You're not going to get very many straight answers.

    1-2 weeks away reportedly....

    Maybe in a deep league, but in standard leagues, he's more like a RB3/Flex and situational as well. The Tampa OL is still abysmal and while he has some better matchups than before they BYE, I think his starts still need to be managed. The good news is he rewarded Koetter's confidence in him by balling out and cemented his lead back status. A few matchups folks may want to think hard before starting him. Carolina, Washington, Dallas come to mind.
  4. Ronald Jones 2018 Outlook

    If you own Ronald Jones and intend on keeping him as a stash or you own him in a dynasty league or are in a very deep league (14+ teams), there are actually a few positives to take from this game. No, he didn't take over the starting or main role, but he did get the 2nd most snaps over Jacquizz Rodgers. Tampa Bay #Buccaneers week 6 snap counts: Peyton Barber 41 (62%) Ronald Jones 12 (18%) Jacquizz Rodgers 10 (15%) Jones also touched the ball 4 of his 12 snaps or 33%, which is pretty good allotment but will probably be volatile. Additionally, he caught all 3 of his targets. This is huge, because coming out the scouting was he had hands like lead plates. Now, from what I understand, none of these catches went more than 5 yards in the air, but it's still something to build on. Considering Jones was so bad in TC he was inactive the first 3 games, this is real progress. Instead of looking to be the main guy, owners should first look for him to soak up almost all of the COP snaps from Rodgers. If he can get most of Rodgers snaps in the next couple of games, now you're set up well for an injury to give you a RB3/Flex. For shallow leagues, yea, he's probably a drop, but for those in other leagues there are positives to build on. Next up: Cle -- 29th in rushing D @Cincy -- 20th (although Burfict is back) @Car -- 15th (better at home) Wash -- 6th (yikes) @NYG -- 24th (may be in full tank mode) Don't own shares, FWIW.

    Well..... it certainly gave some clarity for the forseeable future. Neither is a guy you want to rely on but can help with BYE weeks coming up. It was good for Barber that he got a little action in the passing game. He's superior to Rodgers in this facet and should be playing over him on 3rd.

    It really is amazing.... The Vikings have already tried this "limited snaps" strategy with him and he missed the next 2 weeks. This isn't hard. You sit him until he says he's 100%, then you sit him another week. This type of foolery, not to be confused with tomfoolery, has been proven to not work.... It's so dumb, you sort of hope they get punished for it and miss the playoffs.

    For clarification purposes..... FO rates the Giants as 32nd in run blocking and 23rd in pass blocking.
  8. Odell Beckham Jr. 2018 Outlook

    What would be the point of trading for RG3? Really? He's not much or any better than Eli, who strangely is having one of his better top line statistical years. The Giants should have gone after Teddy Bridgewater before the season. That move may have made a difference, but this is now a lost season. Tank to get a top 3 pick and then take your QB of the future, which is really sad because the DL talent in the top 10 is sick....
  9. How low can you go..... how low can you go? The NFC East is the NFC Least again and 9-7 may win the division. The g-Men come in looking to avoid 1-5. Every loss inches them closer to starting something called a Lauletta or a Tanney (I thought he was being overpaid in Miami). Quick! Bonus points: Lauletta played at what school named after a state capitol? Conversely, the Eagles are finding out that defending a championship is much tougher than winning one. They have a new backfield of Clement & Smallwood, who are also private eyes during the week. Rumors persist a certain RB who currently resides across the keystone state may be added. Will it matter? The offense and defense both look a bit sleepy. If philly loses it won't be the end of their season, but DEFCON 1 would be upon them. One team fights for it's season..... another fights from losing control of it. Winner gets 10 days to enjoy themselves.... Loser gets..... Post em'. Keep em' clean.

    Their offense is hilariously bad with absolutely no identity. It's had some injuries on the OL. This is correct. Their defense is probably a pass rusher from being scary good. Their offense is simply horrid. Really hard to trust anyone on that side of the ball now.

    We don't have spoiler tags unfortunately. I may be able to bubble that up to the Admins but I will set expectation slow for a quick change. Thanks for the thought though.
