  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. I wouldn't take that deal, unless I was getting Zeke. I need to see Adams play well in GB without Jordy Nelson, too many bad dreams when Nelson was out with those injuries, and Adams didn't produce.
  4. 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.
  5. 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.
  6. 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?
  8. Definitely prefer Elliott in this deal, but the offer is fair. I can also see why others would take this offer. My gut is wondering how good will that New Orleans offense be in near future with no Drew Brees.

    Vic Beasley

    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.

    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.

    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.
  13. 1.1 = Barkley, big drop after Barkley. What players / position does your team need or want to draft?
  14. Those two first rounders, where do those picks fall in the first round? Are they early or late first round picks?
  15. 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.
  16. 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.
  17. 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?
  18. Personally I'd keep Brown, unless there is some rule in your league that I am unaware of. Odds are against you of drafting someone better than Brown at the 1.04. There should be some good QBs that you can draft later in the draft.
  19. Where is the first round pick estimated to be? (early or late)?
  20. Have you ever consider dealing Jordy? Hopkins is young & can bounce back, but Jordy has a very limited shelf live of being an elite WR, and his name has good trade value with certain owners. My personal opinion, I probably wouldn't counter that Forte offer, most of the time those trade situations go no where. But if you want to counter it, give it a shot, it might work.
  21. Personally I'd reject that trade offer and if he comes back with a better one, I might consider it. By far, Gurley is the best player in this trade, and if he gets his head on straight, he has the talent to be a top RB again. I wouldn't trade Gurley for all that he offered straight up. Please don't give Gurley away for less than his real market value. The other guy is offering you pieces for a possible STUD.
