  1. Josh Gordon 2018 Outlook

    I would like to see him in Carolina back with Norv. Cam is not accurate, but he has no problem tossing up some 50/50 balls downfield.
  2. Joe Mixon 2017 Outlook

    Shazier was a DNP today as was Mike Mitchell. It is a Mon night game, so not a big deal and earlier in the week Tomlin seemed to think they would play, but if Shazier misses the game, Mixon/CIN's matchup is a good bit easier.
  3. Hunter Henry 2017 Season Outlook

    With Mike Williams likely out and playing against Cleveland, Henry is a top 5 TE this week.
  4. Deonte Thompson 2017 Season Outlook

    So it turns out I will be starting him in at least one league. EJ Gaines is going to miss this week for BUF and it is looking like CB's Conley & Amerson and S Joseph will miss for OAK. This can turn into a shootout quickly. Buffalo has given up big plays when Gaines doesn't play. The Bucs really came alive last week (3 TD passes) when he went out.
  5. David Johnson 2017 Season Outlook

    Pretty sure that part has not happened yet. He is still in a cast.
  6. Deonte Thompson 2017 Season Outlook

    I would not start him unless things are really rough just because of the uncertainty regarding his usage, but the Raiders D relative to the Bucs is not scary. They may be w/o their best CB and BUF has a 24 pt implied total (45 oU) at home in what is expected to be a competitive game. I won't start him this week, but there are worse dart thrws out there. From Scott Barrett's Start/Sit article listing Deonte as a start:
  7. Dede Westbrook 2017 Season Outlook

    AB was 5'10" 186 coming out. Dede is 6'0" 178 coming out. AB is two inches shorter and 8 lbs heavier. Dede is the same build/size as Desean Jackson/John Brown.
  8. Joe Mixon 2017 Outlook

    Lewis is a fiercely loyal guy and Zampese had been with him a long time. He was very close to Zampese. It was reported that he was forced to fire Zampese as the players were in revolt with AJ Green openly questioning the offense. Supposedly a lot more voiced opinions behind the scenes. Rappoport reported this: From the interviews you could tell that Marvin Lewis did not want to fire Zampese and I believe he would have kept him as OC if he could. Mike Brown took a lot of heat for drafting Mixon and was forced to send a letter to fans explaining his decision. Most of his justification was that it was a one time incident and he is a special talent. The promotion of Lazor coincided with a big increase in snaps for Mixon. Mixon has been installed as the lead back. Benching Mixon for Hill puts egg on the face of Mike Brown with fans. Most evidence and the narrative suggests Mike Brown is in Mixon's corner and has finally soured on the coaching staff.
  9. Deonte Thompson 2017 Season Outlook

    First five weeks, Holmes has seen 39, 34, 22, 27 and 31 snaps. Keelin Clay & Tate were also getting some snaps. They cut Clay and reduced Holmes role already. I think will find a way to get him on the field and Zay/Matthews will cede some snaps as well. Despite being on the roster for 5 days, they had multiple plays installed where he was the primary target. Reading between the lines from Dennison's interview, I believe the reason for this is Tyrod. Tyrod on DT: When asked how DT was able to make an immediate impact in such short time: As I said before, it is rumored that Tyrod lobbied during the bye week for them to sign DT. He trusts DT and DT rewarded that trust by catching all 4 balls for 107 helping lead to a comeback victory. Combine this with the pretty heavy bromance langauge in his interview and I am interested. Lots of opportunity to not work out (Bills being conservative, Bills forcing Zay & Matthews, Tyrod not throwing much...etc), but I would rather be proactive about this type of thing with such a nice narrative regarding the chemistry considering Tyrod's deep ball acumen combined with DT being a pretty good athlete in his physical prime.
  10. Deonte Thompson 2017 Season Outlook

    Thompson not only has familiarity with Tyrod (who supposedly lobbied during the bye week to pick him up), but he also has history with OC Rick Dennison when he was QB coach at Baltimore. Dennison seems to like DT from the interview I heard. Tyrod and DT ran the scout team in BAL and had history in BUF during previous offseasons. Dennison noted the chemistry with Tyrod and DT likely comes from the history/time spent in Baltimore. In the interview I heard with Dennison, it sounded like Thompson's snap count will be growing. 3 WR sets should be Zay & DT outside with Matthews in the slot. I am invested in Tyrod after losing Rodgers so I watched the game. Thompson just straight up looked better than the other receivers. He was getting separation and he made some great catches. There is a great narrative with the Baltimore history and Tyrod doesn't really throw to spaces, he throws to open receivers. He doesn't seem to throw receivers open or anticipate where they will be. I believe this is why he rarely turns the ball over. I also think this cuts against Jones and Matthews and favors DT. I dropped Matthews in a couple of leagues and picked up DT. The past couple of games shows the defense is not as good as it appeared the first couple of weeks, so we shouldn't get too many extremely low pass attempt games even though they are a run heavy team. Dennison also mentioned that during the BYE they worked on getting Tyrod to run a bit more and that showed in this game despite having Kwon Alexander spying him a lot. Tyrod's ability to move around and to break out for big gains restricts how aggressive defenses can be with him . That combined with his movement in the pocket on Sunday opened up some really nice slow developing deep shots (particularly that 44 yd beauty on the sideline). DT is obviously no Sammy watkins, but this offense has been missing a downfield threat all year. I really like the gamble of a free high end athlete combined with Tyrod's deep ball accuracy.
  11. Joe Mixon 2017 Outlook

    I don't think Marvin has the power to "bench" Mixon anymore. I know that Lazor punts and says that Marvin has control over playing time when he is asked about Hill starting. However I do not think that Marvin wanted to fire Zampese, nor does he want to give as many snaps to Mixon as he has gotten thus far. The firing of Zampese and the directive to get Mixon more playing time came from above. Marvin is allowed to let Hill "start" and force all of those garbage i-formation plays, but I do not think he has full control over playing time.
  12. Jordan Matthews 2017 Outlook

    He got in a FULL practice today. If he can go, targets are available.
  13. Tyrod Taylor 2017 Season Outlook

    Lack of weapons and gamescript concern me in this one. Coming off a bye at home against a bad pass defense should be a recipe for success for him. However, the Bucs have been horrible vs the run in the past 2 and may be playing a battered Jameis or Fitzpatrick. I could see very run heavy gameplans from both sides and a quick lower scoring game.
  14. Keenan Allen 2017 Season Outlook

    Midweek addition to the injury report is never good, especially when about to face Chris Harris. Today's practice should give us more info. He will likely still play, but won't be ideal.
  15. Ezekiel Elliott 2017 Season Outlook

    Read the post again. It doesn't matter that he went to law school. He doesn't know his apppellate procedure. He is wrong. Zeke is currently suspended and will miss next week unless one of two things happen (1) the Fifth Circuit grants motion to recall its mandate or (2) the New York court grants a new TRO. If neither of those 2 happen, suspension goes forward.
