  1. Maybe the target share/production we saw week 1, was what Cleveland wanted to begin with, once they saw AH in camp? Hooper may have produced last week, but otherwise has been quite :meh: Trade would be a verrry interesting prospect, and impact his current value immensely.
  2. Good deep bench dynasty stash. Dj is under performing, and finding his way to the medical tent a lot lately. Not capitalizing on his opp. Conley is getting older and hurt a lot as well. Cole is a completely different type of player. Westbrook is :meh: No between the 20's or Red Zone producing TE on the roster (so far) and Collin J. is 6'6" 220lbs. It's the Laviska show + maybe whomever wants to take ahold of that other job (esp IF Chark keeps face planting.)
  3. AZ O-line un-good in the running game, and Murray is putting the kibosh on AZ RBs by not checking down to the backs and taking off and running, thus vulturing yards and rushing/dump off TDs.
  4. Outstanding real football move by the Chiefs. As good as CEH was/may be, it was quite obvious he was not a guy who could pick up the must have short yards rushing (3rd-4th down/goal line). He was abysmal in short yardage duty (no stats), eye test only, but it stood out. Bell can pass protect/run routes, and/or convert the short yardage. They will both get run, within the offense. ...this makes the entire KC offense better, and for fantasy, Mahommie is the real winner.
  5. As a current owner of David Johnson in 2 Dynasty leagues, Phillips is a must have/get (if you have the roster space of course), as IMHO he may provide what Duke can’t IF DJ were to fail/go down...Phillips offers just a little piece of mind.
  6. ...does add a new light to my perception on Winston spreading the ball. Thanks. Agreed. ...especially Evans owners.
  7. I was referring to Brady making more pass attempts to the #3 through whatever receiver via his read progression. Opposed to Winston focusing on #1 and #2.
  8. ...and maybe there is something to TB not managing their wideouts correctly. Referring to both starting WRs coming down with hammy injuries at the end of the season and Arians putting some blame on the organization. IMHO IF the TB organization was partly to blame and IF they haven’t addressed a solution, the #3 and #4 WRs in TB have a slightly better chance at seeing the field due to injury. *especially with such a fast twitch muscle athlete like Evans. ...just a thought. Also, Tom will find the open WR, more so thanWinston so we may see more production out of the TB satellite players 🤷‍♂️
  9. I’ll 2nd Okereke and add: AJohnson Den and DGreenlaw *and add Queens name alongside Simmons.
  10. Thanks for the add, @Sack Exchange 😎 I’ve already participated in 1 rookie draft that included IDPs and I focused on the 3 obvious stars, in order: DL CYoung, S/LB ISimmons and LB Patrick Queen. CYoung went mid second and I took ISimmons at 2:09 and PQueen at 2:10. These 3 are the top tier overall, as well as at their respective positions. I view Simmons with LB1 potential in AZ, as he has some play makers around him, so it may take a bit (Baker will now be limited moving forward), and Queen in Bal is LB1 $, day1. Seem too be more good edge/rush defenders in this draft than MLB/WLB/ILB. I had hoped Simmons would be designated a S by the NFL, while playing a hybrid LB/S role, but oh well. LB WGay of KC and LWilson Cin went basically in the 4th, followed by Murray, Brooks, Baun and the NE LBs. Really lite on IDPs in that league.
  11. I gave: RB Aaron Jones + TE Jonnu Smith I got: Rookie 1:02 + Rookie 4:11 + FA 1:02 *dynasty roster in signature
  12. Chase Edmonds showed us all what he is, a serviceable back-up who can produce in spot duty, but is no bell-cow. Through the first 4 weeks he saw 14 touches total. Week 5 he saw 11 touches; week 6 = 7 touches; week 8 = 29 touches and week 9 he saw 9 touches prior to injury. He saw no other touches until week 14 where he saw his 1 and final touch of the season. That's only 70 total touches prior to injury, with only 1 more touch over the remaining 8 weeks. When David Johnson returned to the field week 13 he proceeded to see: 13) 6 touches to Drake's 15 14) 5 to Drake's 14 15) 3 to Drake's 23 16) 3 to Drake's 27 17) 0 to Drake's 16 If Az Tags Drake it will signify this is Drake's backfield...snooze, you lose.
  13. Of course nothing is written in stone, but... Thomas was drafted in 2018 with every intent that he be the heir apparent. It should be his job to lose. 2018 Rotoballer: https://www.rotoballer.com/ian-thomas-rookie-recap-and-dynasty-outlook/606237 "With their second pick of the 2018 NFL Draft, the Carolina Panthers' selected former Indiana Hoosier, Ian Thomas, the potential heir to their veteran tight end Greg Olsen. Of the 14 rookie tight ends selected in the 2018 NFL Draft, Thomas was selected by the Carolina Panthers as the sixth tight end off the board. In a rookie class with several potential mismatch tight ends available, Thomas is no exception. At 6'4" 260 pounds, he offers impressive agility and speed for someone of his size, and is close to Olsen who is 6'5" 255 pounds." Fantasy Pros: "Without Cam Newton for the bulk of the year, the Panthers' tight end position was an overall dud in fantasy. Assuming Greg Olsen and the Panthers part ways, Thomas would be in line to enter 2020 as the team's TE1. Buy him low in dynasty." Rotoviz article from July 2019, which should carry even more weight now that Olsen is gone: https://www.rotoviz.com/2019/07/theres-no-doubting-thomas-why-you-need-to-be-acquiring-ian-thomas-now/ IMHO there is zero reasoning behind paying big $ in FA and/or high draft capital for a TE . They'll pay for depth not additional "starter" $. ...you snooze, you lose :shrug:
