  1. What is up with Navorro Bowman? 

    Bowman has topped 125 tackles in five of the last seven seasons.

    Every time I attempted searches on this guy, I get nothing but Raiders should sign Bowman as soon as they sign Mack.

    I also saw a recent article titled, Is it time for the Steelers to consider Navorro Bowman?

    I have read the 49ers cut him because he had arguments with some San Fran coaches.

    Anyone have any current news on Bowman?

    Will some NFL team resign him?

  2. David is an average LB when Kwon is healthy, I agree.  Look at last year's stats & compare when Kwon was out, it explains what we are telling you. 

    When Kwon is healthy he has the three down LB role.



    Burton has big breakout potential.  


    I got him off of waivers late last year, and I cannot accurately estimate his 2018 stats, but when you have a few roster spots for fliers, Burton qualifies. Other than Allen Robinson, I have a hard time seeing competition for a lot of targets, so I feel good about Burton as a flier.  As we all know, sometimes in fantasy football, it is the opportunity that makes a player good..

    I agree with the post above, 60/800/8 is attainable, especially when opponent's defenses have to respect the Bears running game.

  4. I wouldn't trade for Golden (I'd pick him off waivers or drafting him late in my up and coming draft).  Golden has missed a lot of time due to injuries & he hasn't been cleared to play yet, so I wouldn't trade for a player unless he can play.  There are too many strange variables to this situation, but I would stand pat. That is even before considering salary.

    Having two backs from the same team is not his style, and salary cap number is too high for Lewis...and not a PPR league.  His view was that McCaffrey and the 1.02 are similar value.  Evans' value is still up, even with the off year.  He could flip Evans for Thomas.  The 1.11 pick is a crap shoot, so Evans for that pick is a steal.  

    As to Luck, I agree.  However, in order to make the deal work, this was a part that the other owner wanted.  With Carr and Garappolo, taking the risk is okay.

    I would tend to think the 1.02 & 1.11 alone could get your son a good RB.  If you added a good player to those picks, you should get a very good RB.

    The price of Matt Ryan, C Godwin, J Landry, 1.02 and 1.11 is about or almost enough for a top RB.  In my opinion, your son could do better than this offer.

    Without contract details, I can't comment on that.

  6. I think that he is paying way too much.  Luck is very risky to trade for (except maybe a buy low situation), he has the obvious health and shoulder questions.  Mike Evans had a down year last year, and there is a lot of mouths to feed in Tampa Bay right now. If there is a Tampa WR that I am high on, it is Chris Godwin. In my opinion, giving away those two first rounders make your son's offer too rich for this trade.

    I'd look for other situations that would be more helpful for your son's team. 

    What about Dion Lewis? Your son might be able to get him cheap.

    Evans, and not even based on value.  I'd take him over the other LB's straight up.  The fact I'm getting him 6-10 picks later is just gravy.

    Hankmoody, I like reading your posts, I have a lot of respect for you and your posts.

    In my research, I read some place that Rashaan Evans is a liability in pass coverage.  How would you rate his pass coverage ability?

    I think I prefer the Gurley side by quite a bit.  I believe Ingram had his career year and won't come very close to that, AJG is good but I have never been a big fan, the picks are ok but don't replace the stud of Gurley.  Plus I think Meredith is a good WR and will be startable.


  9. All I have been attempting to say through out this thread that Beasley is definitely talented enough to be a fantasy football IDP force, but I question if the opportunity is there.  McKinley  could take away a lot of sack opportunities, but we will not have a good answer to this question until after free agency and the draft.

    Yeah I went back and checked and Beasley was inside the top 10 in my main league for DE scoring (points per game) in 2016. Now that was due to 2 or 3 huge games and you won’t get the consistency you’d ideally want but the reclassification should make him a bit relevant again. 

    My league he was barely in the top twenty. I am not arguing that Beasley being relevant, I just stating that there are other options similar to him, that possibly could be cheaper.

  11. There are some younger players to fit into the Atlana defense like Takkarist McKinley and Duke Riley, so it will be interesting how this shakes out.

    Just my opinion, lots of young speed edge rushers now days that get sacks, but few tackles, ie: Yannick Ngakoue Jacksonville DE.

    My league scoring rules shows very little difference Ngakoue this last season and Beasley's 2016.

    Just offering some information, if your league is different from mine, please just disregard.

  12. My opinion is that this trade is a fair trade, with good arguments going both ways.  This trade really come down to one's preference.

    I would stand pat because this is a redraft league, and the down grade of Rodgers to Rivers is about the same or a little more than the down grade of Jones to Fritz.

    Rivers is a good & solid QB, but I personally like Rodger's up side this year especially in six point per passing leagues.

    I recommend to go with your gut feeling about this trade. 

  13. How many points for a passing TD in your league?

    If it's four points per passing TD - I would make the trade.

    If it is six points per passing TD - I have to think about this trade a little more.

    Green Bay offense can really stretch the field in the passing game with Montgomery at RB and those receivers. The Packers are built more around Rogers this year than the last several years, when they had Lacy and Starks at RB.


    Bengals starting safety Shawn Williams was carted off the field after suffering a right elbow injury in the first half against the Kansas City Chiefs. He did not return to the game.

    Who would replace him if the injury is a major injury?

    Sorry that Shawn Williams isn't a rookie, but all the back ups I have researched, all have very little experience, any idea who would replace Williams?
