Miami will be playing from behind A LOT... hmmm, wonder who that favors the most...  

 

Hint: he’s totaled 15 TDs on Miami over the past two years (with two different QBs).

 

 

Yup. Have him on all my redraft teams.

I feel like everyone on this board loves Stills (me included especially at that price!) but we're the only ones that get it.

Dude feels like fool's gold but it looks like him or one of the rookies in the 4th round area. I don't know much about Ballage and Gore doesn't scary me although the fact that they brought both in isn't a great sign especially with how they kept playing Williams last year. Still I'm tempted since he flashed the type of talent that should force the coaching staff to carve out a strong 250+ touch role for him which should be solid for RB2. With Landry's short catch game gone I'd imagine they rely on the run game and catches out of the backfield to get those shorter gains.

Parker breaks out in MIA. Stills doesn't have the skill set to evolve like most expect

Since this is the Drake thread, we should get back to him. Does Gase getting fired midseason help or hurt him?

I'm coming to the opinion that Drake is going to be all or nothing. There isn't much middle ground. Either he's the clear starter, and he's an awesome value where he's drafted, or, he's a committee piece with Gore and Ballage, and he's a bust. 

 

I'm starting to lean toward the latter, which is unfortunate, because I really like Drake.

Do just a little research, take maybe 20 minutes when you have some time, and look at 1) how many targets have left with Landry, and 2) who is averaging 7.5 TDs over the past two years with two different QBs. Does the name rhyme with Spumante Sparker or with Benny Hill? That’s all I’m sayin’

LOL, do a little research. You literally like Kenny Stills because Landry left a ton of targets and Stills has been decently productive (more so than other Dolphin WR's) in that time span in Miami.

Do some research. He won't automatically get the SLOT targets from Landry when he is the exact opposite of that type of WR

He wasn’t EVER supposed to be a part of this offense yet every year Stills breaks off big gainers and is relevant.   

 

Id imagine his role is very similar along with his production.  Landry leaving is a small boost

He's the deep threat to stretch the field where guys like Landry can catch the underneath passes and Parker can work the intermediate area. I just don't see big uptick in production out of him. Of course he isn't a bad value floor wise but people have grossly overestimated his ceiling.

Landry was a piece they built their offense around.  There’s no one else with that kind of gravitas in Miami now.   Amendola will get some  looks but he’s not open every play like Landry.   It’s not crazy to think Stills will see more intermediate targets along with his deep shots.   The price is still very reasonable from what I’m seeing

Parker’s adp is a little too high for what, imo, is a 70/60% chance to emerge as the best fantasy wr in mia. I’d rather take the shot on stills in the 10th

Dowell Loggains got ran out of Chicago and Gase snatched him up like he was a hot commodity. ESPN actually ranked him 32nd among playcallers last year, and he ran the 29th scoring offense. 

 

Good luck Miami!
