  1. Started the week as the RB 12 in both standard and PPR. He may stay in the top 8 for the first half of the season with that schedule now.
  2. Jeudy makes for an interesting flex play with potential PPR WR2 upside. Adoree' Jackson being out is a big win for the Judge if Sutton can't suit up. The Broncos may want to try to grind it out on the ground, but I don't think the Titans let them with that stout D line. If Henry/Brown break off a few big TDs against the depleted Bronco's D, Lock will be forced to throw more. Fant likely being the only real competition for targets. Jeudy's sharp route running skills sets him up as a great security blanket on quick thows. The only thing making it hard for me to plug him in is Sutton's status likely not becoming clear until late Monday.
  3. The fact that he started on the PUP, and the Patriots cut him after the Harris injury tells me Miller is not ready. Assuming this isn't an "updating the contact list" visit, it seems like he would just be a depth add.
  4. Realistically, I think maybe 70%-80% of Melvin's production with Ekeler last year if Jackson is out of the picture. If they turn run heavy with Taylor/Herbet as everyone is saying, those percentages have a potential shot of increasing, A lot of ifs, but these are the kind of leaps before you leaguemates wise up that can win you 'ships. Worst case scenario, he becomes waiver fodder. If you are depending on him to win your league, you have bigger problems.
  5. Never trust a hammy with a RB who has already stayed banged up in his NFL career. It is interesting it is now listed a hammy when it was foot related last week.
  6. Shhh I have two more dynasty drafts to go tomorrow to make it 100% ownership and need his value to stay deflated. With the news of Jackson hurting his foot today, I may have to reach for him. Kelley unfairly got stuck with the negative label "jack-of-all trades, master of none" by the fantasy community when he actually profiles as a solid RB with a 3-down skill set. Sure, he's not as flashy as Taylor or Dobbins, but not every player has to have superstar potential to return solid value in fantasy. I'm not convinced Ekeler is a between the tackle runner despite him getting ripped in the offseason. Kelley helps take the "hard yards" off him while also likely getting a shot at goal line carries and a mix of targets. Gordon leaving also opened a ton of opportunity in touches, and I don't think it all goes to Ekeler.
  7. Edwards's value starting to climb with the news of Williams hurt.
  8. Statistically, most good RBs break out their rookie year at the ripe age of 21...same age as CEH.
  9. No doubt I end up taking him, but they are fair questions to ask. With a pick that early, you have to take the 2019 lenses off and see the possibilities for this season. As you said, the quality can start dropping quickly near the end of the 2nd, and if your 1.01 pick busts, your chances at a ship drop dramatically.
  10. You aren't the only one. It makes me nervous everyone just automatically assumes he is the 1.01. Completely new offense and a team that doesn't look like it will be remotely competitive down the stretch has me thinking real hard about where to go with my draft. After all the touches he got last year, will the team still be committed to feeding him so much near the end? That first pick will get in your head sometimes.

  12. I agree with this sentiment, but I can't bring myself to give you a like due to the gif. As someone that worked with him, Coach O is the worst. Just to give an example, he is one of those guys that almost exclusively refer to themselves in the 3rd person.
  13. If anything, that may improve JuJu's stock. JuJu lived on YAC, and if Ben can't air it out, there will be plenty of short-intermediate passes for him to gobble up out of the slot.
  14. Just paste the link directly in to the chat box instead of using the link icon.
  15. For all those people still sleeping on Irv...
  16. The curse of the big bodied "receiver." Although potentially tearing your ACL on the sideline is an entirely new level.
  17. Corey Davis in dynasty...no more needs to be said.
  18. He's going to start getting some more love closer to the start of the season with all the talk coming out of camp. Everyone was so busy fawning over Ruggs's speed (deservedly so) after the draft that they basically ignored a player that had a first round talent profile that slipped because of a broken foot during the combine. Given Carr's ability to throw a deep ball, I took him in all my dynasties at the end of the draft/FA pool. Gruden doesn't seem shy about playing his rookies if they catch on fast enough, and I don't think Williams is even remotely in the same talent level as Edwards.
  19. Most draft classes, he would definitely be the #1 Rookie WR. I believe he is #1 in talent, but this class was full of potential superstar receivers. Some of those landed in better QB positions with Lock being largely unproven. That being said, I rolled the dice on the talent alone and grabbed Jeudy wherever I could.
  20. As a SEC guy, this statement checks out. Watching Jeudy break your team's corners' ankles play after play for 2 years was no bueno.
  21. A good article on Moore's beastlyness. https://www.thefantasyfootballers.com/articles/d-j-moore-can-be-fantasy-footballs-top-wr-for-2020-and-beyond/
  22. This 100%. Last year, 2 out of 4 of my redrafts won the 'ship with the 3rd making it in using this strategy. If your draft spot won't allow you to grab a tier 1 rb, you can find better value in grabbing the "safer" top wrs while everyone is reaching for RBs in the early rounds. After that, you stock up on upside rb stashes in the later rounds and pray to the fantasy gods that one hits. No strategy is perfect, and you need to be flexible based on what is available on the board. Getting stuck thinking you have to load up on RBs early can hinder your chances before the season even starts.
  23. This is more from a dynasty/rookie perspective, but I think Antonio Gandy-Golden is currently being undervalued. If Rivera's philosophy stays similar to his past jobs, the Redskins will be airing it out more this year, which isn't a hard mark to beat. Even with Kyle Allen, the Panther's threw an average of 10 more times per game in 2019. Haskin's ability to grow obviously plays a huge part, but AGG is no stranger to bad QB play. In his last season playing for Liberty (FBS), only 62% of his targets were deemed "catchable." Yet, he still beasted out to the tune of 79-1396-10. Granted, the competition wasn't normally great, but he still looked good against the power 5 teams. He's got the size WAS lacks in receivers/TE, the skillset to be nasty in the red zone, the speed to beat a lot of NFL corners, and the current staff's 4th rd draft pick to challenge *checks notes* Kelvin Harmon and the recently legally-challenged+1-year-deal Cody Latimer to play the outside with Scary Terry.
