  1. Cordarrelle Patterson 2018 Outlook

    Patterson was a borderline top-10 dynasty asset, briefly, after he exploded at the end of his rookie year: 2013: Week 14: 5 catches, 141 yards, TD. 1 carry, 6 yards rushing. Week 15: 5 catches, 35 yards. 2 carries, 15 yards rushing. Week 16: 3 catches, 8 yards. 3 carries, 54 yards, TD rushing. Week 17: 2 catches, 31 yards, TD. 2 carries 54 yards, TD rushing. This was as a RAW rookie. They schemed him the ball in space and let him weave through defenses for chunk plays and long TDs. It was a lot of fun. Ancient history now, I just thought I'd point it out that at one time he was thought of as an elite offensive weapon. I don't think he's lost the ability to run by/around people. I'm more than a little intrigued to see what the Patriots/McDaniels can do with this guy.
  2. Jurickson Profar 2018 Outlook

    He's a top 40 player (38 overall) on the season in my AL Only league (we use NSB and OPS). Throw in the position flexibility and he's been an absolute godsend. His batting average has finally crested .250 and his OPS is hovering just under .800... can he make a run at .260/.825 before the season is done? 15/10 is now a relative given...can he get to 18/12?
  3. 2 QB League Strategy

    Sure, but at some point you have to make sure you have 2 starting QBs and preferably a 3rd option who you can play on bye weeks or in the event of an injury. In my leagues you can't just sit back and expect to have several solid options (like Taylor) available late. There's too much scarcity, and everyone recognizes the value of QBs who can pad their stats with rushing yards. If you can land Tyrod cheap in a 2QB after stockpiling RBs and WRs, obviously you do that. It's just not a viable strategy for me in my leagues.
  4. Derrick Henry 2018 Outlook

    I know snake drafts are still king, but I think there's a lot of people out there who are playing in auction/keepers and have to determine what Henry is worth in his own right, and aren't as focused on the opportunity cost of taking Henry and passing up on players at a similar ADP.
  5. 2 QB League Strategy

    It's funny, a lot of you seem to have 2QB leagues where QBs are wayyyy less valuable than in mine. Literally no starter goes undrafted in mine, and anywhere from 8-10 "backups" or starter-in-waiting types get drafted too. I guess that's what makes 2QB tough, it's hard to get a read on the market since every league is a little different.
  6. 2 QB League Strategy

    Should I assume the bolded guys are your targets THIS year, not who you did just fine with last year? Other than Alex Smith those 5 QBs were a disappointment and they weren't necessarily cheap. Winston, Prescott, and Mariota all went for $20+ in my auction, among the top 10 priciest QBs. I guess if you're saying you should just target guys who disappointed last year, that could be a viable strategy to find value.
  7. 2 QB League Strategy

    Alex Smith, Jared Goff, Blake Bortles, and Deshaun Watson should have been drafted in any 2QB league, even a 10 teamer. McCown and Brissett I will say probably should have been added before the season started once it was clear they were starting, but I wouldn't blame people who already had 3 starters if they ignored them. Jimmy G is a unique example, as it took a trade for him to get starts. I would imagine he was a hot commodity on waivers/FAAB once he was traded. Fitzmagic and Keenum wouldn't have made starts if it weren't for injuries to Winston and Bradford. I don't think your experience of having so many starting QBs readily available is common in 2QB leagues.
  8. Derrick Henry 2018 Outlook

    For the TL;DR crowd: Tagliere expects Henry to be the primary 1st and 2nd down runner, receiving about 14-16 carries and 1-3 targets in the passing game. Tagliere expects Henry's production to be up and down, as his touches will be somewhat gameflow dependent, and his scoring is somewhat big play dependent. Tagliere projects Henry will finish within the top 24, so he's a "RB2" but he will have some huge weeks where he carries your team and some where he disappoints. His projection: 216 carries, 929 rushing yards (4.3 YPC), 8 rushing TDs, 29 targets, 19 receptions, 169 receiving yards, 1 receiving TD. That projection comes out to: 163.8 fantasy points in standard (would have been RB14 last year) 173.3 fantasy points in 1/2 PPR (would have been RB17 last year) 182.8 fantasy points in full PPR (would have been RB17 last year)
  9. August Closer Thread 2018

    Perfect inning 2 Ks for Minter. Really hope he keeps the gig. He’s been a godsend.
  10. Wilson Ramos 2018 Outlook

    Now that he's on the Phillies I can't help but be reminded of the days of Carlos "Chooch" Ruiz
  11. Courtland Sutton 2018 Outlook

    I read that Sanders was playing some in the slot, allowing Sutton to play out wide opposite DT...
  12. Courtland Sutton 2018 Outlook

    Is it outrageous to believe he can finish as the 2nd most valuable Bronco WR? Whether it's by injury or simply outplaying someone, I think it's very possible. It sounds like Sutton is going to start the year with a sizable role and will be a downfield/redzone target. I believe he could end up surprising a lot of people, since it was just assumed after he was drafted that he wouldn't have an impact until 2019 when one or both of DT and Sanders are gone. That may have been a safe assumption back in April/May but is it still accurate? He's basically free in drafts and I think I'm going to be stashing at the end of my bench to see what happens.
  13. Derrick Henry 2018 Outlook

    With a new coaching staff and a zone blocking scheme in place? I don't think we know what the equation is yet. But there have been countless posts prognosticating the workload split and even the biggest Lewis boosters seem to agree that Henry should see more work than last year...
  14. Derrick Henry 2018 Outlook

    Which is why it is relatively easy to criticize the coaching staff for underutilizing Henry.
