In all seriousness, this is great analysis. Meat is essential for an athlete. Thank you for bringing this to our attention -- I certainly won't be drafting Cam or Samuel this year.

Impossible to draft him this season and maybe beyond. 

Cam Newton is now a Vegan since this offseason, he will throw less far and have less energy as the season goes on. You telling me eating lettuce and beans will work ? Dude will have brain fog between snaps

Vegan = more prone to injury and spaghetti arms 

Sucks for Samuel

 

Do you have any evidence to back that up or is it feels over reals?

I listened to a high endurance triathlon athlete on a podcast, WORLD CLASS that did Vegan for a year and he said that you lose the edge and the killer instinct, you lose that extra gear. I need to find his name again that was over a year ago and i'll post the content here.

Also over the long run you develop gut problem

He's going vegan to lose weight.

From what I understand this is just a way for him to shed pounds.

so anyway anyone seen a good projection for samuels targets this year?

 

80% plant base and 20 % meat. Meat is there for a reason ... Yeah Samuel projection this year is heart problem and pass that are short

 

Brady is famous for his strict diet. The 41-year-old quarterback eats a diet that is 80% plant-based, his personal chef told Boston.com in 2016. That includes vegetables as well as grains like brown rice, quinoa, and beans. The non-plant-based portion of his diet is mostly made up fish and lean meats like organic steak, duck, and occasionally chicken. Cooking is done using coconut oil.

Just want to bring up a point that Fantasy Legend Arian Foster was a vegan and he was a beast.

Now I love steaks and baby back ribs way too much to understand why someone would want to cut meat off their food choices. But I guess these guys have personal chef and nutritionists that can make it works. And if it is to lose weight or body fat, live longer or whatever then more power to them.

I was more talking about evidence that a vegan diet will affect his performance.

None of that is true.

Definitely in for the conversations on QB diets and how they relate to the value of their WR's.   This is usually an early June time waster type of topic.    Do you guys think Lamar Jackson will eat too many crab cakes this year?  I really like Mark Andrews as my TE2 with upside but I worry about Lamar's sodium levels

Anyway, back on topic: i hoped for months that Samuel was a $5 player, and Saturday i ended up bidding him all the way to $10 and had to cut loose.  I had only about $20 left at the time and still no QB's so I couldn't go much higher.    Damn hype trains.

"Houston Texans running back Arian Foster shook up the NFL by announcing to the world he'd be going vegan in July 2012. ... Yet by November 2012, Foster was also no longer 100 percent vegan, admitting he had added poultry back to his diet because, as he told the Houston Chronicle, “I just wanted a piece of chicken."

Yeah that's disappointing.  A few weeks ago I thought I could get him for less than $5.

Hopefully Cam’s accuracy improved over the offseason. Samuel is a talented WR.. just needs someone to throw the ball to him.

That is repeated often but isn't true.

 

https://www.si.com/edge/2014/04/24/going-vegan-nfl-0

 

Months before training camp and weeks before OTAs even start, the rethinking has already begun, as the NFL’s best players mull over what they can do differently this offseason to gain an edge on the field next fall. This is when quarterbacks try new workouts in the weight room, offensive lineman tinker with their weight, and, rarely, players like Texans running back Arian Foster shake up the whole league by announcing they’ve done something totally different with their diet, like going vegan.

Foster dropped the bombshell on Twitter in July 2012 with one pithy chirp: “Officially a vegan now. We’ll see how far this goes.” The Twittersphere immediately exploded with criticism (“now that Arian Foster is a vegan I refuse to consider having him on my fantasy team in the future #hippies”), skepticism (“$43.5 million [Foster’s five-year contract] says you'll be eating meat by preseason”), some support (“vegan is easy. Don't let the haters get you down”), and much amazement that his dietary decision was creating so much hype (“Twitter abuzz about Arian Foster becoming a vegan.”)

That following season, though, the running back crushed doubts about his diet by leading the NFL in number of carries and rushing touchdowns. Yet by November 2012, Foster was also no longer 100 percent vegan, admitting he had added poultry back to his diet because, as he told the Houston Chronicle, “I just wanted a piece of chicken. It wasn't like temptation. I felt like I could use one.” But the Twittersphere once again blew up with commentary ranging from continued support—“yea, he’s not a vegan - but damn healthy nonetheless”—to vindication: “Arian Foster was vegan for like a month then he figured out he's playing a sport where you can die if you don't eat 8 steaks a week.”

Two years later, Foster still strives to eat vegan, tweeting words of encouragement to those who adopt the diet. But similar to his successful 2012 go, he added chicken and fish back to his diet during last year’s season, according to his team dietitian, Roberta Anding. “Knowing him, he’s just that person who’s always looking for, ‘How do I improve, how do I enhance my performance,’ and food is one of the options he’s chosen,” says Anding, who has worked with Foster since he joined the Texans in 2009. “But the volume of food you have to eat as a vegan is pretty large. If you need 5,000 calories a day, that’s a lot of plants.”
