Rotoworld Blurb Mistake/Argument Thread

Recommended Posts

The last few posts for Mark Ingram are laughable...

October 15:

Mark Ingram (hand) said he's full go and taking all his normal reps at practice this week.

Ingram added that he's taking handoffs, catching passes, and isn't being eased or babied back into the mix. Look for Ingram to return to his role as the Saints' early-down ball-carrier, handling 12-15 carries per game and all of the goal-line work. However, he'll be a low-end RB2 against the Lions' stingy run defense. Khiry Robinson's role will be reduced, as he'll head back to handling 6-8 carries. Oct 15 - 3:59 PM

October 16:

Mark Ingram (hand) remained "full" on Thursday.

Ingram is going to be active against the Lions. The question is how he'll split up work with Khiry Robinson. Ingram will be the Saints' primary early-down back, but it's possible he won't receive his normal reps after being sidelined over a month. He can't be trusted as more than an RB3 for Week 7. Oct 16 - 4:36 PM

October 17:

Mark Ingram (hand) is listed as probable for Week 7 after turning in a full week of practice.

Ingram's role isn't entirely clear in a tough matchup with the Lions, but he will be active and ready to share time in New Orleans' backfield. Oct 17 - 4:14 PM

So he went from a low end RB2 to a guy who can't be trusted as more than an RB3 in one day....And two days after defining roles to within 2-3 carry ranges Ingram's role is unclear. At least in the 3rd post they gave up on Ingram's ranking. That is how posts should always be, straight information, and admitting when something isn't clear.

October 18th

ESPN Panthers reporter David Newton said he would bet on Kelvin Benjamin (questionable, concussion) playing this week.

Benjamin reportedly "looked good" in practice on Friday, and coach Ron Rivera seemed optimistic he would be cleared. The final step for Benjamin is to be cleared by an independent doctor, which should happen on Saturday. With the Packers' secondary decimated by injury, Benjamin would be a high-upside WR2 if he is able to play.

October 19th

The Charlotte Observer reports "all signs point" to Kelvin Benjamin (questionable, concussion) playing in Sunday's game against the Packers.

Benjamin traveled with the team to Green Bay on Saturday. Barring any setbacks, he's expected to be cleared for Week 7. Benjamin will be a high-upside WR2 despite a difficult matchup with the Packers' secondary.

In one day, Packers' secondary goes from being decimated by injury to being a difficult matchup.

Well...ya see. It didn't get much press, but in that one day the Packers signed Leon Sandcastle.

Somehow the #4 RB on the Bills who has yet to see the field this season remains worth a roster spot in 14-team leagues.






According to ESPN's Adam Caplan, "there's no guarantee" Bryce Brown will play at all for the Bills this season.



Brown doesn't play special teams, so he's technically Buffalo's No. 4 running back behind Fred Jackson, C.J. Spiller, and Anthony Dixon. The Bills traded a fourth-round pick to acquire Brown this offseason. It's fair to wonder if they're regretting that decision now. Brown remains a hold in Dynasty leagues, but he's barely worth a roster spot in 14- and 16-team re-draft formats. He needs F-Jax or Spiller to suffer an injury to get active.

Alshon Jeffery caught 5-of-7 targets for 136 yards in Chicago's Week 6 win over the Falcons.

Only a stumble and a penalty kept Jeffery out of the end zone. He lost his footing on a 74-yard grab in the third quarter that could have been an 80-yard touchdown, while he hauled in an eight-yard score in the fourth that was called back because he stepped out of bounds before coming back in for the catch. Either way, it was a dominating effort, one that leaves Jeffery with a 31/495/2 line through six games. That projects out to 1,320 yards. Jeffery remains an every-week WR1.


Alshon Jeffery caught two passes for nine yards in the Bears' Week 7 loss to the Dolphins.

Jeffery was targeted seven times on the day, but Jay Cutler was off. Jeffery's only real contribution was drawing a 39-yard pass interference penalty that help set up Matt Forte's one-yard touchdown. Jeffery will see plenty of Darrelle Revis and Brandon Browner next week in New England. He's a solid WR2.


So last week he is an every week WR1. This week he comes a solid(not a high) but a solid WR2, even in a week where Rotoworld blurb writer admits that Cutler was off.


Clowns.

Just reread every post in this thread for some good laughs, especially pages 5-10.

Pointing out this one as just being kind of catty

Raiders OLB LaMarr Woodley is dealing with a potentially serious biceps injury.

Anyone notice he was playing? Although Woodley has appeared in all six Raiders games this year, starting five, he has zero sacks and five tackles, and has graded out negatively as both a pass rusher and run defender according to Pro Football Focus. He's just another whiff by GM Reggie McKenzie.

Anyone get annoyed by all of the bias and lame jokes that the writers put in the blurbs?

Very much so, the front page has this about Nate Washington. Just mean and unnecessary.

They'd be lucky to get a bag of punctured footballs for him.

Well I'm on my phone so I cant quote link it, but apparently if T-rich doesn't play bradshaw will become a RB 1/2 yet everywhere has him ranked as a top 10 back with Richardson this week so how will T-rich sitting out lower his value.

Titans WR Nate Washington sprained the AC joint in his shoulder during Sunday's Week 8 loss to the Texans.

Washington, who lost his starting "X" job to Justin Hunter a few weeks ago, posted a 4-68-0 line on four targets before leaving. The severity of his sprain is unknown, but this is the same injury that sidelined Jordan Cameron and Jimmy Graham for a bit earlier this season. Hunter's arrow continues to point up.

Love how these writers protect their own when they whiff completely, and continue to dog on finds they didn't see coming (for example, Mychal Rivera today.)

Agree with everyone on the reactionary, mean spirited posts which contradict their earlier stances.

I'm too lazy to back it up with the Larry Donnel type history, but similar posts were made on Brian Hoyer. They kept saying he'd probably be 0-5 after his brutal schedule and the calls for Manziel would increase. Then he goes 3-2 with a handful of higly competetive games and he's "benefitted from a soft schedule."

Its kind of embarrasing.

Rotoworld has irrationally hated on Bradshaw for years going back to the Giants. It's one thing to worry about his injury history, but they bash him even when he's healthy. It's like mandatory training when they bring in someone to write the blurbs they give them a list of players to hate and Bradshaw is right at the top.

"We suspect Vick and his still-dazzling legs will be under center against the Chiefs in Week 9."

On the same note they also have a list of players that must be praised at every opportunity and Vick is at the top of that list. The only rationale explanation for their love of Vick must be that the Rotoworld staff hates dogs. Nothing else makes sense.

These guys are some of the worst in the business. I'll give them credit for the fact that they do put out a lot of content, but their little 'blurbs' are poorly written, have terrible humor, and are wrong a lot of the time. Their rankings/advice/etc is some of the worst out there. The fact that they are pompous enough to ask for a 'subscription fee' to access their season pass is ridiculous. The part that pisses me off the most is how they mock people with their tweets when they have a huge miss on a player. There are plenty of other sites out there that people could go to and give page views and ad views. When they have a big time whiff and potentially cost someone their week, all they need to do is say 'my bad' and move on. Instead they laugh and make mocking jokes about it and aren't apologetic at all. Silva might be the worst one. Go back, if you can and check out his preseason ranking with their little blurbs by them. Every site is gonna have their misses especially in preseason ranks, but he was so off on so many players it makes you wonder if he actually does any research at all.

The only good thing rotoworld offers is these forums. It gives me an opportunity to blow steam and troll on people.

Michael Floyd had zero catches on four targets in Sunday's 24-20 win over the Eagles.

Floyd gave owners a brief scare early when Eagles CB Bradley Fletcher landed on his knee, but injury was not the issue here. Floyd was targeted on three deep balls early, narrowly missing on two of them that could have been construed as drops. Frustratingly, the Cardinals did not manufacture any catches for Floyd on more high-percentage throws, instead drawing those up for Larry Fitzgerald (7-160-1 on 10 targets). Floyd's natural ability keeps him on the WR2 radar against Dallas in Week 9, but volume is a concern. He has a total of seven targets in the last two weeks. Oct 26 - 8:01 PM
