With jags he can be rb1

where will he be rb1 too ?? Pats? 


His RB1 days are long behind him. If he can stay healthy, he might be a decent mid-range RB2.

How much FAAB are people dropping on this guy? Don’t want to spend too much before the season even starts and to be fair he may not even get signed

Zero. He’s a waste of a roster space. If he got signed, maybe 5%.

I'm gonna spend around 2-3% hoping my league misjudges the value. Not willing to go too high though all things considered.

Reading between the lines here, did my man Devonta just not want to participate in any pre-season/training camp?

Call me crazy, but I actually kinda like him in Jax. RB3/Flex worthy with easy RB2 upside IMO.

And he’s still only 9% owned on ESPN

Has he signed with JAX?

 

Not yet, I don't think. But, it just makes sense, and seems like a good fit. If they can come to terms on $, I think it's a done deal. 

  • ESPN's Adam Schefter reports free agent Devonta Freeman is visiting the Jaguars on Saturday.

    Jacksonville is the first team to bring Freeman in since he hired Drew Rosenhaus to represent him. It's the perfect fit as the Jaguars have nothing to lose in a year the team is clearly tanking ahead of the 2021 draft. Freeman's addition would obviously be a detriment to all, siphoning carries from Devine Ozigbo and targets from Chris Thompson. We urge caution if targeting anyone in this backfield during drafts this weekend.

I don't see how this works out. they just cut LF who was slated to make 4MM. Unless Devonta accepts the veterans minimum I don't see why they would sign him. Just my thoughts

Stop gap. He fits more into Gruden's offensive scheme than Leonard did. Plus the obvious problems we had with Leonard off the field.

I get that, I just don't see him signing for the veterans minimum unless he is desperate which he may be at this point but if I were the Jags I would wait until after week 1 so I didn't have to guarantee any cash.

plus if a contender loses their rb they might trade for him and the jags could get a pick out of this

Don't forget his ties to the state of Florida. Definitely a good fit. Hope both sides can work things out.

He’s 100% worth a stash in most formats.

in a 12 team league every roster has someone worth dropping. If he signs with JAX he immediately skyrockets. While I think he is pretty washed he will still be their best option and he can catch the ball and also get carries at the GL. Probably return decent flex value with middle of the pack RB2 ceiling if he can stay healthy.

Drop some lottery ticket and add Freeman. You can probably just pickup whoever you dropped in a few days if Freeman doesn’t sign with JAX.

It all depends on your roster.  If he signs with the Jags then he could easily put up RB2 numbers. At the most it is trade bait for something you may need down the stretch.

Please me careful for bs accounts like this.

I thought it was weird that Ian Rapopear would start a report with “Rumor has it.”

There's no proof that spoof account is wrong at this point.  Freeman could very well be singing with the Jags.  We just don't know which song they sang.  Just don't expect this account to know when he signs.
