  1. Anyone think Sammy Watkins is a sneaky good pick vs. Denver this week? Last year vs. Denver at home Sammy went for 100+ and 2 TDs. In their matchup earlier this year Mahomes went down with his ankle injury. While Sammy has been pretty average since week 1, he's due for a big game. I like Hurns also, but that whole offense is messy with backups and practice squad players. Giants defense looked really good on Monday vs. the Eagles too. Dorsett has been trending down especially in recent weeks. Edelman is a gamer. He'll play.
  2. I'm up against the #1 team in my league this week, and gotta swing for the fences. But I've got DJ Chark and Devante Parker most likely out. My #1 WR is Tyreek Hill. Who do you start out of this scrap heap? - Phillip Dorsett @ Bengals - Sammy Watkins vs. Denver - Allen Hurns @ Giants - Marcus Johnson @ Saints Thanks in advance!
  3. A grade 1 turf toe injury represents a stretch injury or sprain of the plantar capsuloligamentous complex. Typically a patient with a grade 1 sprain may finish the game or practice and report pain in the MTP joint, but may not recall the exact play during which the injury occurred. Diagnosis is usually supported by mild to moderate tenderness upon palpation of the plantar aspect of the MTP joint and pain with passive terminal dorsiflexion of the joint. Weight bearing is usually tolerable and swelling minimal. A grade 2 turf toe injury reflects a partial tear of the plantar capsuloligamentous complex. These patients present with swelling and pain during weight bearing and often guard against passive dorsiflexion. A grade 3 turf toe injury represents a complete tear with avulsion of the plantar plate from the metatarsal head. These players present with increased swelling and ecchymosis, severe tenderness, and are often unable to bear weight on the forefoot. Treatment of turf toe in football is dependent on the grade and severity of the hyperextension injury. Athletes with grade 1 injuries often miss little or no playing time. These athletes are treated with nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) and rest, ice, compression, and elevation (RICE). Immobilization is rarely necessary. Athletes can often return to play with a combination of “turf toe taping,” shoe wear modification, or application of a more rigid insole. Taping is performed by bringing loops of a 1 to 2 cm wide piece of athletic tape (reinforced with moleskin) from the dorsal surface of the great toe to the plantar surface to prevent dorsiflexion beyond 30º. Athletes with grade 2 injuries often are more comfortable with a walking boot for a few days followed by progressive mobilization by the athletic trainer. The typical football player with a grade 2 turf toe injury will miss one to two weeks of competition but may have persistent symptoms during games or practice upon returning to play. Grade 3 injuries documented on MRI will need a period of immobilization and protected weight bearing (with or without a cast in slight MTP plantar flexion, and may require four to six weeks before return to play. In general, the return of painless passive terminal dorsiflexion is an indication to progress an athlete to running followed by cutting and drills. Hard running should be painless prior to sport specific drills and cutting. Since skill position players (e.g., wide receivers, defensive backs, running backs) may tolerate less in the way of shoe modification and modalities, they may take longer for a full return to competition.
  4. Few things working in Mixon's favor yesterday, so this outcome was not surprising. Any time a player doesn't practice all week and then basically a game-time decision, against a formidable defense (49ers are legit), you have to bench him. Next week they play at Buffalo which isn't much easier, but hopefully Mixon will be closer to 100% and worth starting. The passing offense has shown some great signs, and Mixon will have a break out game sooner than later.
  5. DJax and Wentz have had a very strong connection all offseason, and it's been well documented in various articles and reports. While he might not explode for 150 and 2TDs each week, he's got a very high weekly floor and a solid high-end WR2 this season. Anderson is nowhere close in my opinion.
  6. First drive of the game. Cam hit him on the sideline for a 1st down, and got the ball punched out as he was trying to push through 2 defenders for extra yards.
  7. They only scored 28 on offense. But it was Delanie Walker that stole the show in a game where Mariota only completed 14 passes. Davis is not an essential piece to this offense. They are going to win with defense and Derrick Henry. Everyone else on this team is pretty much a weekly dart throw.
  8. Winston is not in the same universe as Rodgers, Cam or Big Ben. Too early to tell with Baker. He's regressed every single year, and while he can't get much worse -- we all know he won't get much better based on his track record. Evans and Howard didn't exactly do him any favors, but even an average NFL QB can overcome some adversity during the game. He'll be benched sooner than later, as this team has way too much talent on offense to be held back by a lame-duck QB. More significantly, Tampa's defense looked better than advertised -- meaning there will be far less shootouts than most expected. That means the only player holding this team back from the playoffs is likely Winston. He has all the makings of Josh Freeman 2.0
  9. Minshew is definitely a gunslinger. Almost like a more accurate Jake Delhomme. This passing offense is going to be better than anyone expected. Even though it wasn’t close in the 2nd half, these young guns showed a lot of potential.
  10. So.... How many of you guys starting McCoy week 1 at Jacksonville?
  11. Here's a good read that summarizes Gruden's situation. It's not great.
  12. Haha... nice article, but Jay Gruden is also the most likely candidate to get fired if the Redskins start slow. He's in the final season of his contract, and has an overall record of 35-44-1 (.444) over the past 6 seasons. There's a very high probability AP will outlast Jay Gruden this season.
