  1. 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.

    So what im reading is that Jackson would be Eckler's backup while Kelley would play the Melvin role. So are we all holding ?!?! 

    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.

    "Anthony Lynn said #Chargers RB Justin Jackson was back running around today and will be "fine" for this week."

    Thoughts ? 

    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.

    Nobody talking about this guy?

    4th round pick by the Chargers. Ekeler isn't built to carry the complete load and neither is Jackson really who is hurt anyways. Lots of carries up for grabs with Gordon gone. Kelley is the biggest back on the roster, so at minimum he'll get some RZ love.

     

    Already talk about how he has beat out Justin Jackson.

     

    Beat reporters saying he had one of the best camps...

    Player profiler rates him as very athletic...

    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.

    1st round for a rookie? Super easy fade.

    2012 Alfred Morris 1,613 yards, 13 TDs

    2015 Gurley 1,106 yards and 10 TDs in 13 games

    2016 Zeke 1, 631 rushing yards, 16 total TDs

    2016 Jordan Howard 1,313 yards rushing, 7 TDs

    2017 Kamara 1,500+ total yards, 13 TDs

    2017 Kareem Hunt 1,327 yards rushing, 11 total TDs

    2018 Barkley 2,028 yards from scrimmage, 15 TDs

    2018 Philip Lindsey 1,278 yards from scrimmage, 10 TDs

    Most of those numbers would be pretty solid for a first rounder.

    Statistically, most good RBs break out their rookie year at the ripe age of 21...same age as CEH.

    Don't overthink it. If you get the first pick, just take CMC and keep your fingers crossed that quality players are still OTB when it comes back to you for your 2nd & 3rd picks. Rock solid pick at 1.1.

    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.

    So is he locked in as everyone’s first pick? I have a terrible feeling about him this year. I’m telling myself to stay away but that might just be dumb lol. 

    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.

    CEH will be the best in the league. Watch out!

    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.

    It's a little unnerving hearing that Big Ben is short-arming throws and side-arming balls at practice, no? Hopefully nothing, but does raise a possible red-flag for JuJu...

    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.

    I own a bunch of him in draftkings bestball so he will not be a thing for that reason. Sometimes I see him go as high as round 17 in draftkings bestball.

    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.

    Is he the rookie WR to target for PPR dynasty leagues?  I will admit I don't follow college football a ton but it seems like Jeudy has a great opportunity to make an immediate impact right out the gate given his lack of competition.  Seems like he could walk right into a #2 WR role as long as he doesn't colossally mess things up. 

    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.

    Any SEC fan would tell you that Jeudy is an elite route-runner. I have zero doubt that he’s already one of the best route-runners in the NFL. Jeudy is crazy accurate, sharp, and quick out of his cuts. Dude is ridiculous, and I couldn’t happier that he’s not at Bama anymore. 

    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.

    Last year I drafted 3 straight wrs Thomas, Julio, Edelman, and would of drafted ertz if he wasnt taken right before me. Won everything with chris thompson, boston scott, latavius murrary, chase Edmunds, etc.

     

    I think if you dont have a top 6 pick (henry, zeke,cmc, ak, barkley, cook) you should go wr, kelce or wr, wr and bpa in the 3rd usually a wr. In full ppr i see a lot of guys who can give you a cheap 10 pts with catches in the 7-9. Boston scott, hines, cohen, hunt, etc.

     

    Not to mention that last year was weird in the fact that there were NO great FA rbs that lasted the full season. Drake was most likely drafted, edmunds/Murray were good for like 2 weeks, etc. Top rbs stayed real healthy last year, I see things coming back to normal with rb injuries and back ups turning into league winners with corona limiting otas and less of a firm hand on rbs.

     

    I agree with going 3 wrs/te in the first 4 rds if you dont have a top 5 pick. Traditionally they are safer from injury and you want that in your first 4 picks

     

    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.


  14. 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.
