  1. Not if Rotoworld darling aka everyone's favorite sleeper aka pick up of the year aka future hall of famer James Robinson has anything to say about it!!! Well ... he could go off for 220 scrimmage yards and 3 TDs and they'd still probably lose. Yeah so go with Indy over the tanking Jags.
  2. I couldn't find a thread on Isabella. Surprisingly since this guy has immense upside as a lottery ticket that likely went undrafted in your league. A 4.31 second 40 yard dash. Crazy yards per reception 21.0 yards per reception. On 13 targets last year he has 2 plays go for huge yardage 55 and 88 yards. In his 2019 preseaon he had a 59 TD reception also. Big play ability player in his second year at a minimal risk cost. Of course I'm interested.
  3. If you think RoJo is "garbage" you obviously haven't watched him run. Your boy LF tho, he fell off a cliff last year. His last 7 games were terrible. I'm pretty sure itll end up being RoJo the work horse yardage back then Fournette inside the 20 will TD vulture. But not enough to justify him being a starting fantasy running back, but a soso flex play.
  4. In a covid year I'd make sure I got him.... hell pony up 20-25%
  5. I look forward to your formal & public eating of crow.
  6. Fournette will be nothing more than a TD vulture. RoJo should dominate Fournette in touches and yards per touch.
  7. Hype trains do not simply "slow their roll". All aboard if this train hasn't already left the station!
  8. First part is so true. Second part hopefully is true.
  9. I know right... I'm just over here thinking how do I get him in my starting lineup over my 2x RBs and flex RB that I drafted all 3 before pick 60?
  10. Amen to that. But back to stoking the fire. RoJo's upside is insanely higher than Fournette's. Younger, faster, more moves, more time spent in the offense. But I will say to the "Fournette has no value because no other team would trade for him arguement" that was much more so based on Fournette's contract rather than his talents and abilities. He cleared waivers because teams didn't want to take the 4.2M cap hit right before the season started during a pandemic.
  11. Goff is so under the radar this year. As are The Rams in general.
  12. Context. RoJo is young was learning the offense and getting acclimated to The NFL. There's a reason they say to target 3rd year breakouts. RoJo has lost 2 fumbles in his young career... Seems like youre going way out on a limb to brand him of that.
  13. I so badly want to plug him into my lineup already. I reached on Mostart rho for my flex so I am really struggling with flexing Robinson.
  14. I totally agree with #1. #4 was a complete gem.
  15. Nagy is by no means a bad coach. For some reason that continues to be the narrative around The Chicagoland area. Ryan Pace cannot hit on an offensive player. Continues to give draft capital away like halloween candy and made possibly the biggest draft day blunder in modern history. Coaches dont accidentally get coach of the year. Bad coaches dont have a higher than .500 record in their 1st two seasons when the only reason their team was considered an under acheiver was because they over acheived so much the year before. If Cody Parkey makes a kick The Bears would have had a legot shot at The Superbowl. The Bears brought Nagy in to rebuild their system. But before he ever gets to draft Pace already gave away a ton of draft capital to draft the wrong QB. Lets stop putting that on the coach who in his rookie year got coach of the year. Nagy is 20-13 counting the playoff loss that came down to a double doink. All while having the wrong QB and limited draft capital in his tenure. Also for the record dont conflate my anti Ryan Pace rant with me being anti Mitch. Mitch didnt draft himself. Mitch didnt pick to work with an unevolved John Fox in his first season. I for one think Mitch can take a big step forward this year. Part of this is Nagy having to realize he needs to compromise his ideals with Mitch's strengths and weaknesses. This isnt uncommon for new head coaches.
  16. RoJo has always been on a short leash. Which is a damn shame cause hes a big time play maker. If hes given 15~ touches a game hes going to be sick value. Just get him out in space and let him do his thing.
  17. Bold predictions: 1. Sam Darnold out produces Joe Burrow... by a substantial margin too. I've already convinced 3 of my buddies to give me 2 to 1 odds on this. Didnt really have to convince they acted like I was giving away free money. 2. Cooper Kupp is a top 3 PPR wide receiver. I'm so high on Kupp I don't know if this is even bold but I was getting him in the 4th round in drafts. 3. DeVante Parker is a top 6 wide receiver. He was going in the pick 72-80 range in drafts. 4. The Patriots win more games than The Bucs. More bold with the public than Vegas. Right now I'm seeing most sites having the Patriots 8.5 - 9.0 wins compared to most sites having The Bucs at 9.5 with heavy -160ish to -170ish odds. 5. James Robinson thread ends the rotoworld season with the most replies. Choo!! Choo!!
  18. This kids been a criminally under rated pitching prospect for too long. Finally given an opportunity and he exceeded expectations. That said this will probably be his best start of the season.
  19. 3 hits all gone for 3 dubs... 2 almost left the yard. A lot to like about Bart right now hopefully he can get every day ABs in the middle of that lineup.
  20. Yeah universal DH extra pitchers on the roster. Even if he pitched well on the day chances are he's removed the first sign of trouble in the 5th and especially in the 6th. If you drafted before the pandemic and got him you probably got decent value. Any drafts post pandemic I doubt you get any return on an investment. I say this knowing he was going fairly late in redrafts. What really is his upside?... Zips has him projected for 105Ks. I'd take the under on that for sure in a shortened season and expanded rosters. Depth Chart projects 81 and Steamer 76. I think 76 a fair projection with how much hype surrounds Gore. But ultimately I would likely take the under on 76 as well as I just don't see him breaking 70 innings this year. 101 innings last year between Advanced A and AA and that was by far the most innings on his young career. So 70+ in a season that is likely to be 50% of a normal season just doesn't seam feasible especially when he isn't going to be allowed the 3rd time through a whole lot. So expect low win totals too. ERA wise he's projected 3.62 (Steamer), 4.26 Zips, and 3.94 Death Charts. I'd be taking the over on 3.94 for sure Zip's 4.26 seems reasonable as I don't think he'll ever be allowed to be out there to get much worse than 4.26. Note that he had a 4.15 ERA in AA (only 5 starts) where his H9 more than doubled (4.08 to 8.31) and his HR9 tripled (0.45 to 1.25). Skipping AAA into the big leagues and not getting his expected NL boost with the universal DH. His best bet at success I feel is if the MLB uses a ball that randomly benefits his arsenal and approach. But if it's the same juiced ball he could be in for a rough time. A high majority of 4-5 inning pitched games is not going to win you anything in fantasy especially if it's a quality start league. I'm thinking best case scenario is they commit to pitch him every time it's his turn at the back of the rotation. That would give him what 31 - 32 starts max in a normal season for a 5th starter. So 16 starts would be half off that which is way too high. Say we go with the projections of zips (21 way too high) Steamer (13) and Depth Charts (13). 13 seems fair if they're committed to getting him that much work he would still have to average just over 5.1 innings a start to break 70 innings. Also what happens if the Padres are actually right in the thick of things? Do they have to convert him into a RP for the last 5-6 weeks of the season to hopefully get more out of him in the playoffs? Now I'm almost thinking best case scenario is they bring him up as an extended reviler get some holds and 3 inning saves. Honestly it would be the most logical. You could get him in a very good position to succeed. The Padres should use Gore as their pitcher following an opener. Ultimately I totally agree next year could net some value if he struggles this year.
  21. While Gore is a good talent he is vastly over rated. I wouldn't touch him in redraft. Even in redraft next year he could be a flop for where he's going to end up going. A lot of Gore's fantasy value is the fact that he's in PETCO but put a DH up against him every night and a young pitcher quickly looses value. I'd rather wait on a bunch of other pitchers who will likely out do Gore over the next 1.5 seasons as well as go much later.
  22. I'm so sick of hearing this pitchers won't be ready nonsense (not exactly what you're saying but the talking heads keep crying about this). Go throw a damn bullpen. Pitch into a screen. There are a million things that can be done yes not all of them ideal but the 3 weeks of spring training over extra actual games is absurd to me as a baseball player and baseball coach. Pitchers just need to throw hitters actually need to see pitches. So honestly the lay over has put hitters at a bigger disadvantage not getting live reps. Granted not hitting in the cold days will help the hitters stats overall. But it's a historic pandemic things will certainly be different, I want to see what guys adjust and rise to the occasion. Not punish everyone else with less games because some guys (professionals) were too lazy to stay ready or get ready during the negotiations. Let's reward those who have been professionals and are ready sooner.
  23. You also have to factor in the over head of running a stadium and what each team invests in advertising. But I think it's pretty off the wall for the owners to act like they're going to be out on the streets over this. Yeah they won't make as much money or maybe they even do lose some money. 1 year of loss revenue for decades of explosive growth and profits.... Since the owners every other year reap the most reward seems like they need to be the one's taking on the money risk. Not the players who are risking their health.
  24. I think baseball in New York, Boston, and DC this year is going to be pretty risky. Worldometers has only 750 deaths reported for today though nation wide. Sundays are always a lower day though due to less staff. So we'll have to see what the numbers are for Monday and Tuesday but at least the data seems to be on the downside of this.
