  1. Anthony Miller 2018 Outlook

    Very intrigued by Miller. A lot of people were going crazy for him during rookie draft season in dynasty leagues, calling him an Odell clone and the bed WR in this draft. He he hasn’t been healthy and hasn’t been heavily involved but that can change at any moment.
  2. Royce Freeman 2018 Outlook

    Weird how this thread fills up with people crowing about how they either didn't draft Royce, didn't trade for Royce, and/or picked up Lindsay off waivers. Not sure what any of you are adding to the discussion at this point. It seems pretty unnecessary to dance on the guy's grave when his stock is quite possibly at it's lowest point. Freeman's ROS outcomes still have a very wide range depending on his health (first and foremost) and whether or not the Broncos offense can stabilize. In deep leagues, keeper leagues, and (obviously) dynasty leagues, Freeman should be held because he's capable of much more than what he's shown thus far. It's hard to synthesize all of the external factors that have impacted Freeman up to this point but I think he's done pretty well with his opportunities and I doubt the franchise has changed their opinion of him based on these first 7 games.
  3. Royce Freeman 2018 Outlook

    He got a goal line carry from the 1 (so the max he could pick up was 1 yard) and another carry on 3rd and 1 (picked up 2 I think). Sometimes YPC is not a good indication. He did have a couple of good runs where he showed his strength and power. The run where he broke a Budda Baker tackle at the LOS and plowed ahead for 9 yards sticks out. To me this is just another example of a team that uses one back very predictably (Freeman) and opens the playbook wide when the other back is out there (Lindsay). This is not meant to take anything away from Lindsay. He's been AWESOME and I don't think he's going away. It's to Lindsay's credit that he's more versatile, more trusted in the passing game, etc... It just bugs me when a young player (rookie in this case) gets labeled as "not good" or "too slow" or "JAG" when he's only 7 weeks into his pro career and it's clear he's being used in a specific role that limits him in both real-life and fantasy. Hope his ankle heals up in time for some late-season value. It will be interesting to see how the roles shake out in this backfield with Freeman out of the mix for a few weeks. I don't expect Lindsay to be able to be anywhere near as efficient/explosive with a heavier workload.
  4. DeAndre Hopkins 2018 Outlook

    He hasn't looked "hobbled" in a game yet, and his practice reps have been extremely limited all season. I don't think there's any reason to panic yet, but always worth keeping tabs on anyone wtih a Q tag.

    I think you want to add Chubb, so you should add Chubb! Of the options you listed, it's sort of a crapshoot who is going to perform best this week and ROS. Dunlap is a proven stud, and he chips in PDs (if your league counts those) Buckner is a DT so his tackle floor should be a little higher than some of the DEs. Ngakoue is a beast but he seems to run a little hot/cold and has a lot of competition on his own line. I wouldn't bank on the sack production of Smith/Kennard moving forward.
  6. Royce Freeman 2018 Outlook

    Seems like a good week to bench him and see what he does on Thursday before dropping (for league hosting sites that allow you do to so, I know some don't). I'm actually starting him again. See you all Thursday night to celebrate or vent...

    In the postgame interview Rodgers was asked about all of the rookies and (paraphrasing) he said he was happy to see J'Mon Moore and St. Brown get some playing time/opportunity, but he mentioned MVS has been ahead of those guys and has been contributing for a while now. I still think Cobb/Allison will push MVS to a limited role once their healthy (coming out of the bye?) but I thought it was noteworthy that Rodgers went out of his way to distinguish MVS from the other two rookies.
  8. Marquez Valdes-Scantling 2018 Outlook

    Anyone think there's opportunity for MVS to supplant Allison and/or Cobb in the offense? Not a Packers fan and I don't follow the team that closely but I feel like veteran QBs like Rodgers prefer throwing to guys who they're comfortable with. Especially Rodgers, who makes a lot of his big plays on broken plays/scramble drill, which requires his WRs to improvise and know when/where to break off the route. Do we have any evidence that MVS can become a Rodgers favorite, to the point where he can stick in 3-wide sets? Or is this just a long-term play for 2019 when Cobb moves on?
  9. Amari Cooper 2018 Outlook

    In dynasty leagues his value has completely bottomed out. Are there other examples of players who have lost so much value so quickly?
  10. Cameron Meredith 2018 Outlook

    I'm thinking there's sneaky WR3 production ROS.
  11. Nyheim Hines 2018 Outlook

    We're probably hoping for Tarik Cohen 2.0 here. Problem is Cohen's production is gameplan/matchup dependent and therefore unpredictable week-to-week.
  12. Alex Collins 2018 Outlook

    This. I kept hearing Collins was "not trusted" and the Ravens "don't want him to have a major role." So much for that. This season is setting up very similarly to last season. Fumble problems to open the year, Ravens remain committed to him and he rewards them (and owners) with high RB2/low RB1 value.
  13. Royce Freeman 2018 Outlook

    Disappointing game... Still holding, still hoping. I guess I'm a glutton for punishment but there's really nothing on the wire in any of my leagues.
  14. Royce Freeman 2018 Outlook

    100% But if the Broncos don't make any changes, they'll be looking at a lost season in a hurry.

    http://www.espn.com/blog/nflnation/post/_/id/284217/is-it-time-for-the-broncos-to-make-royce-freeman-the-featured-back ENGLEWOOD, Colo. -- Part of it is simple math. Only one guy can get the ball at a time. But as the Denver Broncos try to find their way on offense these days, there is plenty of evidence rookie running back Royce Freeman had shown enough, done enough, flashed enough potential to get that ball more often. Broncos offensive coordinator Bill Musgrave has said it’s time to “take the training wheels off” in how the Broncos use Freeman, as well as fellow rookie running back Phillip Lindsay, in the team’s offense. “Royce has done a super job breaking tackles after contact,” Musgrave said. “Both he and Phillip are running really well. We need to get more of them, more turns ... and let them go because they’re doing great.” And there seems to be the rub for the Broncos, especially with a run-through-contact back like Freeman has shown himself to be. The Broncos want Freeman, as well as Lindsay, to be physically ready to contribute in games past Thanksgiving. So, they’ve tried to manage things. But they also want those games past Thanksgiving to mean something, and right now they’re 2-3 with a three-game losing streak that threatens to balloon into something worse if they don’t get their offense clicking. Somewhat lost in the 34-16 loss to the Jets last Sunday was that the Broncos did line up Freeman and Lindsay together in the backfield for the first time this season, including their fourth play from scrimmage against the Jets. It resulted in a 29-yard run for Lindsay. “It’s our ‘20 pony,'” Broncos coach Vance Joseph said. “ ... And we handed the ball off twice and got some big plays. Then when they close the middle, you can throw it and move Lindsay out of the backfield as a fourth receiver option. It’s purely scheme.”
