  1. Julio Jones 2017 Season Outlook

    Watching Amari Cooper get 19 targets and put up 200+ yards and 2 TDs makes me really long for the days when Julio would be force fed like that.
  2. Dede Westbrook 2017 Season Outlook

    play action to Dede. I think he's going to add a new element to that offense. In keeper/dynasty he's a guy you want because Robinson and Hurns are both free agents after this year. Could be the default WR1 next year. Based on pure talent he's up there with any WR in this rookie class.

    Another great post. That long TD run by Murray led to a bunch of "welp, he's still in total control of this backfield." Now Henry gets a chance to close out the game and breaks a long one and it's "garbage time" and should be more or less ignored in terms of what it means for their roles moving forward.

    This is a good post. Lost in all of the back and forth about whether Henry deserves credit for his 72 yard TD is the fact that Murray was noticeably hampered by his hamstring and is gutting it out. He performed pretty admirably, all things considered, but if the Titans have postseason aspirations they're either going to need to give Murray a chance get fully healthy or they're going to have to lean on Henry.
  5. Adrian Peterson 2017 Season Outlook

    There's many years of track record showing that Peterson doesn't do as well getting handoffs out of the shotgun. Saints run a TON of shotgun. Guess who runs very little shotgun? The Cardinals. New Orleans was not a good fit for Peterson based on the offense they run. Arizona is a good fit for Peterson based on the offense they run. Not sure what is so hard about this.

    Are you new here? Please go back and re-read the previous 2 pages of this thread. Garbage time? No. 2 seconds left in the game? Also no.

    he didn't get the ball. Hard to penalize him when he got mediocre workloads. The coaching staff said they wanted to get him the ball more this week, and they did, and the results were great. Are they going to go back to giving him 4-6 carries per week now? It's possible. I wouldn't put it past them. But if they do stay committed to feeding Henry the ball, I think it's clear that will be a recipe for fantasy success.

    He was pretty good in Week 2 (14/92/1), which happens to be the only other game he got more carries than Murray and 1 of only 2 games where he got double digit carries (before last night).

    Honestly this is a lot simpler than we're all making it. Garbage time = when you have no chance of winning but you're out there on offense taking advantage of prevent/soft defense that is literally giving you completions/yardage as long as the clock keeps running. Clock killing = when your team is ahead and running the ball down the opposition's throat in order to pick up first downs and kill the clock. Penalizing an RB for picking up fantasy points in clock killing mode seems wrong to me. We WANT our RBs to play for teams that are ahead late in the game and feeding them the ball over and over again. It's a positive that Henry was the guy in there getting the rock at that point, and that he converted.

    It's true that Henry could have just taken a knee after picking up the first down and the outcome would have been the same. The additional 65 yards and TD was stat padding. Nevertheless, that point in the game was not "garbage time," and in fantasy football we don't penalize players for scoring touchdowns when their team is already ahead and has control of the game. It was an impressive run, and it's indicative of what he can do when he's fed the ball and is allowed to wear down opposing defenses. Now if only that could be the gameplan going forward (not holding my breath)...

    Garbage time kneeldowns. That's a new one. I can't say I've ever heard anyone call all those -0.1 points "garbage time." It seems like you're being obtuse about this. The game was in the balance. Everyone on the field knew a first down sealed it. Everyone on the field knew Henry was getting the rock. The defense was geared up to stop him and he ran right past everyone for a long TD. That's not garbage time. Garbage time is when the defense is in prevent and letting you pick up chunks of yardage in the middle of the field in order to keep the clock running and end the game. Unless you think the Colts intentionally let Henry score so that they could be down 2 scores when they got the ball back...

    No need to derail this thread any further. I sent you a PM. Aside from the conversation about volume, you made it clear that you thought AP was washed up as a player and had no more left in the tank than Chris Johnson did. To be fair, your tune did change rather quickly once Chris Johnson was released, but that was still solely based on projected volume, not because he still has the goods.
  13. Adrian Peterson 2017 Season Outlook

    seems like a convenient way for you to backtrack. Wasn't it obvious Chris Johnson would be cut, or benched completely once they traded for AP?
  14. Adrian Peterson 2017 Season Outlook

    Kinda funny that I was called "delusional" for saying I could see RB2/flex value moving forward.
  15. Adrian Peterson 2017 Season Outlook

    not sure how many here are FootballGuys.com subscribers but Matt Waldman posted a really long and thorough analysis of Peterson and his chances of finding success in Arizona. He made a great case that Peterson is far from "done" physically and was just completely miscast in the system that New Orleans runs. He also lays out why Arizona is a much better fit, and how Peterson is the type of RB they have needed/wanted to since DJ went down. Basically he believes they want to commit to the run game with someone who can wear defenses down and eventually break a big play. I respect Waldman's work quite a bit, and thought it was interesting to hear a perspective that didn't match the echo chamber of Twitter/these forums.
