Rotoworld Blurb Mistake/Argument Thread

Recommended Posts

Ben Roethlisberger completed 26-of-38 passes for 351 yards, a touchdown and an interception in Pittsburgh's 28-21, Week 1 loss to the Patriots.

Big Ben had his offense moving all night, but things continually bogged down in the red zone. New kicker Josh Scobee complicated matters by shanking two kicks. Roethlisberger dimed no shortage of beautiful passes to Antonio Brown, Markus Wheaton and Heath Miller, but the Steelers badly missed Martavis Bryant's presence in the red zone. Ben's TD was a garbage-time toss to Brown, while his pick was an ill-advised double coverage heave to Darrius Heyward-Bey. Ben will remain a mid-range QB1 for next week's meeting with the Steelers.
Nice to know Big Ben will be playing the Steelers next, their defense was awful tonight!

LOL its real.

This one is golden:

Roethlisberger blurb:

Ben's TD was a garbage-time toss to Brown, while his pick was an ill-advised double coverage heave to Darrius Heyward-Bey.

Antonio Brown blurb:

His 11-yard touchdown — which occurred with :07 remaining in a game that was not in doubt

So somehow Roethlisberger's TD came in garbage time, while Brown's TD happened when the game was not in doubt, even though it was the same play....

There was no doubt the Steelers were going to lose. I fail to see the inconsistency?

In the past four Sammy Watkins blurbs, he has been described as a WR2, flex play, WR3/4, and on the WR2 fringes.

Danny Woodhead rushed 7 times for 36 yards and caught 6 passes for 68 yards Week 2 against the Lions.

Woodhead only had three touches at halftime as Melvin Gordon dominated proceedings, but he was the back of choice with the Chargers in catch-up mode in the second half. Woodhead again showed his worth to the offense, fighting for extra yards on third downs and proving himself Philip Rivers' most reliable receiving option in the second half. Woodhead's receiving ability will keep him in the RB2 conversation in PPR leagues, and he will be a solid FLEX play in standard leagues next week against the Vikings.

From miles from fantasy relevance to pushing TE1 status in one week.

Sun, Sep 13

Crockett Gillmore caught 2-of-4 targets for 23 yards in Baltimore's Week 1 loss to the Broncos.

Advice: Gillmore was the intended target on Joe Flacco's game-ending interception. He got completely swallowed up by Darian Stewart in the end zone. Gillmore was somehow tied for second in targets this afternoon, but remains miles from fantasy relevance.

(Rotoworld.com)

Sun, Sep 20

Crockett Gillmore caught 5-of-6 targets for 88 yards and two touchdowns in the Ravens' Week 2 loss to the Raiders.

Advice: One week after the Raiders were shredded by Tyler Eifert, Gillmore burned them repeatedly on seam routes and in the red zone. With first-round pick Breshad Perriman (knee) out until October, Gillmore has emerged as the No. 2 option in Baltimore's passing game behind Steve Smith Sr. Gillmore is huge and an above-average athlete. Gillmore is pushing toward low-end TE1 value with a date versus Cincinnati next on the docket.

Percy Harvin corralled four passes for 47 yards and ran once for seven yards in the Bills' Week 2 loss to the Patriots.

After years of novelty use, Harvin is transforming into a more traditional wide receiver and fantasy owners have to be impressed by the results. He's up to 126 yards on the season and is looking like a legit WR3. That's what he'll be next week against the Dolphins. Sep 20 - 5:10 PM


Percy Harvin (hip) is probable for Week 3 against the Dolphins.

Harvin slots in as a WR4 as the No. 2 or 3 option in Buffalo's low-volume attack. Sep 25 - 12:45 PM


Well what a difference a few days make.

It was two, wish it was three though hot-dang.

Do these blurbtards even pay attention to football? Graham now has TWO TDs on the year.


Jimmy Graham nabbed seven of his eight targets for 83 yards and a touchdown in the Seahawks' Week 3 win over the Bears.


The mighty Graham has finally come out of hibernation. Graham needed a convincing performance to win back our trust and that’s exactly what he delivered on Sunday. He caught everything in sight and usually brought a few defenders with him as he clawed for extra yards. Graham steamrolled Brock Vereen on a 30-yard catch for his first touchdown of the year. Sunday Graham looked every bit as dominant as the player who spent five years in New Orleans dunking on goal posts. Look for Graham to have another big game next week against the Lions.

It's actually 290 passing yards but oh well.

Alex Smith completed 24-of-40 passes for 240 yards, one touchdown, and one interception in the Chiefs' Week 3 loss to the Packers on Monday night.

Julio Jones caught 12-of-20 targets for 164 yards and two touchdowns in the Falcons' Week 3 win over the Cowboys.
Jones was mostly matched up with Cowboys CB Brandon Carr, but scored a 45-yard touchdown out of the slot. His second touchdown was a two-yard fade in the end-zone. Jones played the entire game, but missed some time with his hamstring issue. The Falcons are likely to continue to manage his practice reps this week. Jones has an NFL-best 44/440/4 line through three games. Sep 27 - 5:17 PM

Someone didn't watch the game because this isn't a fade.

Michael reportedly saw more reps than usual in practice on Wednesday. It is an odd time to bump up Michael's usage considering how well Joseph Randle, Darren McFadden and Lance Dunbar played last week, but the Cowboys likely want to get something out of their investment. Michael still likely needs an injury to someone ahead of him to have any fantasy value.

Last week he needed an injury just to be active. Now he needs one to have "value".

Funny stuff in the Alshon Jeffery blurbs...

Bears coach John Fox declined to update Alshon Jeffery's (hamstring) status at Monday's press conference.

Fox's 0-3 Bears have to maintain that #CompetitiveAdvantage. ESPN's Adam Schefter has reported Jeffery expects to suit up against the Raiders. We'll learn his status via national reports, and not Fox's childish interactions with the media

Alshon Jeffery (hamstring) remained limited in Thursday's practice.

Jeffery is expected to return against the Raiders, but don't expect any helpful hints from coach John Fox. Fox, who coaches a game for a living, is at war with honesty. Thankfully for fantasy owners, the Bears kick off at 1ET on Sunday
..I don't even know what to say about these guys anymore :lol:
It's like they forget they are writing about fantasy football, and get mad and petty when the people involved with real football don't bend over backwards to help them..

So, who was second in targets? Blurb writer for Randle forgot about Larry Donut.

Larry Donnell caught 5-of-7 targets for 38 yards in the Giants' Week 4 win over the Bills.

Donnell was second to Odell Beckham (12) in targets Sunday, but he still managed to do very little with his looks. Donnell is merely a middling TE2, who doesn't score many touchdowns. He'll get the 49ers at home in Week 5. Oct 4 - 6:25 PM
Rueben Randle caught 3-of-6 targets for 31 yards and one touchdown in the Giants' Week 4 win over the Bills.
Randle continues to be an every-down player with Victor Cruz (calf) still on the shelf. His six targets were second on the team to Odell Beckham's 12. Randle's lone highlight was his 11-yard touchdown in the second quarter, beating Stephon Gilmore's soft coverage on a slant. He'll be on the WR3 radar in Week 5 when the Giants host the 49ers' weak pass defense. Oct 4 - 6:11 PM

Malcom Floyd (concussion) practiced for the second straight day on Thursday

.

The deep threat still needs to pass his final test, but it appears he'll be active against the Steelers. Even if Stevie Johnson (hamstring) sits, Floyd will be a boom-or-bust WR5.


What the hell is a boom-or-bust WR5? Is a boom 4 points and a bust is 0?

Via Rotoworld:

The Redskins are expected to go with a 'hot-hand' approach at running back.

Coach Jay Gruden said he ideally wants to get Alfred Morris 65 percent of the carries, with Matt Jones getting 35 percent. Jones is still in the doghouse after his Week 3 fumble, but has the better chance to take over a game. There's potential for Jones and Morris to have big weeks against Atlanta's run defense. The Falcons are allowing 4.4 YPC and have given up the most rush touchdowns in the league.
Related: Alfred Morris
Source: ESPN.com
Oct 10 - 5:19 PM
But:

(USA Today)Washington Redskins RB Matt Jones is not in head coach Jay Gruden's doghouse after a crucial goal-line fumble in Week 3 against the New York Giants. "He's never lost my trust (because of fumbles). A couple of weeks ago it was Alfred (Morris) who was in my doghouse and he's not. It's just the way it works out with the handoffs and the carries. I like both of those guys."

Rotoworld seriously just makes stuff up and goes with it.

I read that article, but I still believe Jones has the potential to take over a game, while I give Alf props for being consistent. I'm hoping Alf gets no yards on his first three carries, they turn to Jones and he goes bonkers.

Ben Roethlisberger (MCL, bone bruise) was officially limited in Wednesday's practice.

Citing a source, the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette's Ed Bouchette reports Big Ben "threw a number of practice passes in shorts" at Wednesday's session, "including some deep ones." The Steelers' bye is in Week 7, so it's possible Roethlisberger is just building up his participation ahead of a full practice week during the open date. It's also possible Roethlisberger is trying to show the Steelers' medical staff he'll be able to play against Arizona on Sunday. Stay tuned. Roethlisberger's return -- even at significantly less than 100 percent -- would be huge news for all the Steelers' skill-position players.

Week 7 bye for Pitt, eh?

Rotoworld/Yahoo: " Lance Moore nabbed six of eight targets for 55 yards and a touchdown in the Lions' Week 5 loss to the Cardinals.

Advice: The fact that Moore was targeted eight times shows just how out of hand things got on Sunday. A distant third on the Lions’ receiving depth chart, Moore’s fantasy contributions this year will be few and far between."

Geesh. EPIC FAIL.

Redskins coach Jay Gruden confirms Kirk Cousins won't be benched for Week 7.

"I'm not looking to make any drastic changes right now," Gruden said. Gruden did allow that Cousins "needs to play better." Cousins has been arguably the worst full-time starter in the league this season, posting a 6.23 YPA to go along with a 6:8 TD:INT ratio. Unlike generational athlete Robert Griffin III, however, Cousins is getting the benefit of the doubt. Colt McCoy or RGIII won't be far away if Cousins' play doesn't pick up in a hurry. There's been nothing in his four-year career to suggest that it will.

There's a blurb right now about Andy Reid not giving up play calling duties. They list his title as:

Andy Reid - OT - Chiefs

OT? Offensive tackel? Is that a fat joke?
