  1. I think health is the reason for Detroit taking Swift when they did. Johnson has been unable to stay consistently healthy in his short career. Two knee injuries in the NFL, two shoulder injuries at Auburn, and hammies tossed in all around. Swift is viewed as the more talented back for a staff that's on the hot seat. Swift has the potential to have a 2019 Miles Sanders type explosion if Johnson goes down or just isn't as good as Swift. Detroit has weapons across the field, so they should move the ball pretty efficiently, barring injuries.
  2. PFFs fantasy projections certainly weren't kind for Murray/Zona. 23 TDs and less than 500 rushing yards would be bad considering his ADP. I think his production is pegged for higher ends as his defense will still be bad, and the division they play in is, arguably, the best in football. Is he above the Matt Ryan/Josh Allen tier, or in line with them?
  3. I entered him straight into the tier with Chubb and Mixon. Reid has a clear history of favoring a lead guy he likes. As long as CEH can withstand the workload, he'll feast. I'm pick ten in a redraft, and I'm praying he falls to the turn in round two.
  4. I meant in real life. Apologies, I assumed it was implied.
  5. I'd personally take Chubb, Zeke, a healthy Cook, and maybe Kamara as well over Henry, but he's definitely a great top ten RB in today's game. I thought the contract extension was great for both sides.
  6. Agreed. Murray was playing through injuries and on an overall poor team the previous year. It was also Chip Kelley's final season, FWIW. Murray was then traded to Tennessee and signed an extension immediately. Murray's historical season was also two years prior to his first season in Tennessee. For Mack, he was a fourth rounder from the previous regime who was finally able to take over the starting role this year. I don't understand why the current regime would move up to take Taylor, only to sit him while in their win now mode with Rivers. I try to listen to actions moreso than words on situations like this. It seems Indy is spelling out exactly what they want to do, but certain peeps in the thread seem to wanna point in the other direction. I'll guess we'll see come September.
  7. Ah, you're speaking in terms of actual football production. Even in that regard, I'd still probably take Jimmy G, not Newton. Not sure what argument you can make for Newton over Brady in real life terms though.
  8. If you're subscribing to content advising Jimmy G or Newton over Brady, you may want to unsubscribe. I'm more lax on Brady than most, by I'd still take Brady over both. I'm surprised though that there hasn't been more talk about Donovan Smith's Covid comments. Obviously, players will certainly sit out this season, but Smith would be crucial for the line.
  9. Great sign for the offense as a whole! I've seen the reports saying he was signed directly for the open guard position. Peters is a vet and knows the offense inside and out. I'm sure there will be growing pains, but maybe playing more guard will help with his durability concerns. Obviously 12 games of Peters is better than probably any other FA out there, currently. All in all, great signing for the offense. Makes me feel much more confident drafting Sanders/Wentz.
  10. Uhm, what? Why would you look at the season with DeFilippo? I believe he was fired right at the end of the season in 2018. Funny you bring up 2018, as the first two games Stefanski took over play calling duties that year, Minnesota had the best two week rushing stretch of the entire season rushing for 320 yards combined. That being said, Stefanski prefers stretch run concepts with play action passing. It's also well documented he mirrored his scheme around Kubiaks 21/12 packages. All that being said, I actually have a bump for more rushing and less passing for 2020. I just hope Stefanski doesn't s*** the bed in the same fashion that Kitchens did.
  11. As a Browns fan, I'm not expecting 2019 Freddie Kitchens game splits to carry over to 2020. I'm moreso looking at 2019 Minnesota game splits and seeing a respectable 65/35 split under Stefanski. I believe Cleveland was 22nd in attempts last year and Minnesota was 4th. There's also been "coach speak" of Hunt being used more in the passing game, take that for what you will. My point being, Cleveland seems pegged for more positive game script, more rushing attempts, and hopefully Chubb can right his awful RZ rate from '19. I guess you can say Cleveland will Cleveland though, I'm used to it.
  12. Definitely agree. I hope the Mack talk does increase. I love the current ADP of Taylor.
  13. Go away with your logic! This is the 2020 Marlon Mack..... Oh.
  14. Understanding coach speak in June/July is a thing? Has management even seen their guys in practice yet? If not, would it not be fair to reserve judgment until they can see what both guys look like in the new look 2020 offense? Mack should have the upper hand being the vet to start early, but Taylor is undoubtedly more athletic. We'll see how his elite athleticism translates to the next level.
  15. If he played a full sixteen games, in what looks to be, a top five offense? Especially with lead back roles? I guess I see it differently. I think he would have massive scoring upside with great odds at having a highly efficient season. Of course, this is all predicated he signs in TB and takes the job.
