    Yeah, has he thrown a football yet?
  2. Saquon Barkley 2018 Season Outlook

    Giants LT Nate Solder tweaked his leg in a pileup in Thursday's minicamp session. Coach Pat Shurmur said he believed Solder was "fine," but Solder wasn't quite as optimistic. "I hope so," Solder said when asked if he was OK. "It hurts a little bit, but I don't know. I'm not a doctor. No one said anything to me." Solder was spotted walking without a brace or limp. Solder apparently got rolled up on a non-contact play — as all are in minicamp — and somewhere along the line a brawl broke out (not featuring Solder). The G-Men gave Solder $35 million in free agency. A serious injury would be a devastating blow. Source: SNY Jun 14 - 1:52 PM Uh oh.

    Joe Williams - RB - 49ers 49ers coach Kyle Shanahan has been impressed with RB Joe Williams' offseason after he spent his rookie year on injured reserve with an ankle injury. "I think he has a different mindset — understands a little bit more the standard of the NFL and difference," Shanahan said Tuesday. "I think his body looks a lot better than it did last year. He put on a lot of muscle mass and he took advantage of the year of not playing." Reporter Matt Maiocco — who said Williams "did not create an overall favorable impression" last summer — posited in April that Williams could have a tough time making the 53-man roster. He needs to carve out a role behind Jerick McKinnon and Matt Breida. Source: NBC Sports Bay Area Jun 12 - 4:13 PM One down on the RBBC threat? Brieda is going to be a 7th or 8th round pick come August. Bummer.
  4. Tom Brady Season Outlook 2018

    This wasn't even the one I was thinking of. It's just one of the first ones that came up. As far as the testing positive for PEDs - I think its hardly a "conspiracy" to wonder if a 40 year old NFL QB with a history of cheating and leaving messages on Victor Conte's voice mail might test positive after his team mate and buddy did after using the same trainer.
  5. Tom Brady Season Outlook 2018

    Hi, I’m Alex Guerrero. Follow my plan based on stretching and vegetables, you too can play at an elite level in the NFL deep into your 40’s. Without PEDs! Call now.

    These are the kind of points that get me fired up and chugging Kool Aide. Thats a really good point about crushing it from day 1 as a rookie. I’ve been so focused on sample size, I kind of forgot to fully factor in that he had the wherewithal to dominate right out of the gate. Droool
  7. Tom Brady Season Outlook 2018

    That haircut cut was a mistake.
  8. “Edelman’s alleged PED use is an interesting development considering how it relates to Tom Brady. Both are clients of Alex Guerrero, who was quick to defend himself when news of Edelman’s failed drug test went public. “Elite athletes sometimes work with multiple coaches and health professionals as part of their training,” said Guerrero in a written statement. “Here at our facility, we take a natural, holistic, appropriate and, above all, legal approach to training and recovery for all of our clients.” Belichick restricted Guerrero’s access to the team last year, a choice that may have forever altered his relationship with Brady. With Edelman in hot water, Belichick’s decision to distance the Patriots from Guerrero now seems warranted. The fear among Patriots fans is that if Edelman, a known client of Guerrero, took a banned substance, couldn’t Brady also run the risk of testing positive for PEDs? It hasn’t happened yet and almost certainly won’t, but you can understand why some might make that connection. At least the Patriots had Jimmy Garoppolo and Jacoby Brissett to fall back on when Brady was suspended for the Deflategate debacle in 2016. Now all the Patriots have behind him is journeyman Brian Hoyerand seventh-round rookie Danny Etling. While highly unlikely, a PED ban would serve to further muddy Brady’s already-complicated legacy.” That is some SOLID analysis from Jesse Pantuosco today. What are the odds age-defying reigning 40 year old MVP Tom Brady is on PEDs? Given the points above, I’d say pretty good! What a great news item to start the T Brady 2018 thread.

    I hope he fully recovers for his own sake, The Colts team & organization, fans and the quality of football in general. But I’m also hoping he recovers so I can from here on and forever more refer to him as “The Duke.”

    That seems kind of harsh. FWIW Axe Elf, I thoroughly enjoyed and thought you had some good analysis that year even the predictions that turned out to be wrong. I also got a kick out of the Handed-Down-From-High-Above tone of the posts. That was fun reading. Always nice to see some stat-backed conviction.
  11. Jerick McKinnon 2018 Outlook

    Haha! So true.
  12. Jerick McKinnon 2018 Outlook

    The thing that still makes me nervous about McKinnon is an RBBC. I know McKinnon is “Shanahan’s Guy” but so was what’s-his-name that Shanahan “pounded the table” for last year (I honestly can’t remember his name. I don’t know why.) The Shanahan system has produced a lot of great fantasy RBs but it has also produced some Hellacious RBBCs. I hate picks like J Mic because if I draft him it will be RBBC and if I don’t he’ll be a top 10 RB that went in the 3rd. Hopefull preseason provides some clarity.
  13. Deshaun Watson 2018 season outlook

    I prefer drafting QBs late for this simple reason: it gives me more opportunities to draft guys at each position that could pop off a be a weekly winner for me. I play is a 6 point passing TD league so the chances of a QB12 winning the week for you on any given week is actually pretty decent. By contrast, draft a QB early and your WR2 goes from, say, K Allan or Alston Jeffrey (2017 ADPs in standard) to Robby Anderson. Maybe not the best examples but I think you see what I mean.

    Er, I said Williams. haha! Just a complete force of habit when thinking about Cowboy WRs I guess. I agree with everything you said about TA. It’s a shame because I just don’t have faith in the coaches to turn him into a surprise Star like T Hill was. Even still, I agree on TA but still think Hurns is a decent late round flyer.
  15. 2018 Sleepers

    Why? I've taken a shot on Williams every time he's had an opportunity and the guy is a rock solid face-plant.
