In Topic: Brandon Marshall HOF Thread

06 January 2016 - 11:09 PM

 

Marshall ended the season with stellar numbers: 109-1502-14. Through age 31, he now has produced 882 receptions (22nd all time), 11,273 yards (31st all time), and 79 TDs (25th all time).

 

His ranking by age 31: receptions (2nd), receiving yards (6th), and receiving TD (10th).

 

New thoughts?

 

Yes. I'd revise "middle-class Terrell Owens" from my last post to "upper-middle-class Terrell Owens".

 

But Terrell Owens played with better Qbs.  What Marshall has accomplished with really bad to average QBs is amazing.

I agree that Rodgers looks different but the guy has played at such a high level for so long I think we can all agree it isn't him.  So that leaves coaching and supporting personnel. He did have weak receivers this year--you know you are in trouble when an old James Jones is your best receiver.  But it is true that great QBs can do well with weak receivers, so that tells me coaching also is a problem. Cobb has played better in the past and the coaches were unable to help him be as effective this year--a guy like that needs to be used in a special way.

I had a feeling it would be a bad day for Cooper.

Production isn't performance. His performance vs AZ was better than his production. His production against CHI eclipsed his performance.

Production = yds, TDs aka FF stats
Performance = comp%, DVOA, AYA, TD/INT ratio etc.

Teddy is bottom 1/3 in production. He's middle or top 1/3 in performance. For a 2nd year QB I'd rather have Teddy's year than Bortles. Compiling stats on volume isn't an indication of playing well.

But scoring TDs is what wins games.. Giving ADP the rock 30 times has not and will not be good enough to beat the good teams.
technically, what wins games is scoring more than your opponent. I have said repeatedly in this thread and others on this board that Teddy is a better quarterback when he does not have Peterson in the backfield.

I'm encouraged by his efficiency and generally good decision-making. He still does not have that deep passing game and there's a chance that he may never be proficient at that part of quarterbacking. But I also think Teddy is underrated, especially among the fantasy football community, because they look at boxscores in production which are not necessarily good indicators of whether or not a quarterback is truly performing well.

 

I agree that performing well is more important, but from a fantasy perspective, I still have questions about whether he will ever be better than a mid-range fantasy Qb.  My gut tells me no  Has there ever been a top 5 type fantasy QB who can't throw the deep ball?


In Topic: [DYNASTY] Is Jonathan Stewart a buy low?

Question for Stewart owners. What would it take for you to deal him in a PPR dynasty league?

A second round pick
