  1. Just passed on a 2nd in 2020, and a 2nd in 2021. Drafted him #24 overall in a dynasty rookie draft. Holding. (Also, for the record, got Justice Hill 19th overall.)
  2. I think Cole is clearly the better option than Dede. That could surely change next season, or sooner, but right now? I think Cole is who I want in this passing game, Hurns notwithstanding. Hurns has been injured and is probably going to have some rust - it's not like Bortles is the head of a well-oiled machine, here. Recent rapport matters, to me, in this situation. And watching the limited highlights that I have of Cole, I like what I see. Dude's a burner, and he's running nice routes.
  3. I don't think that this IS a case of chasing points. I think he's been getting a bigger role for several weeks running, and "chasing points" is usually best illustrated based on a decision to start someone because of what they did the prior week; week, not weeks. I'm leaning toward starting him over Corey Coleman, Hunter Henry, Devante Parker and Will Fuller, for what it's worth. There really hasn't been all that many reliable receivers this season. I think Cole is more than a, "chasing points" or "hail Mary" type start. I think he's a legit option, as far as a #3 receiver type.
  4. For one, it's not a PPR. But besides that, because Williams has easily outscored him over the last three weeks. How can you be so surprised? I think a good case can be made for either, but I don't think it's so absurd for me to opt to go with Williams.
  5. I have him in over Christian McCaffrey, for what it's worth. I'm excited to see what Williams does this week as the 1st stringer to start, with some experience under his belt, with a healthy Aaron Rodgers while being healthy himself. If Williams is going to be a #1 caliber RB come next draft season, this is going to be the game that cements his status as such. If he goes off here, gets 20 carries, gets 4 yards a carry, hauls in 3 or 4 passes for another 25/30 yards and punches one touch into the end zone, then Williams owners in dynasty leagues will have reason to be really excited. I'm getting there. I also have Aaron Jones, which naturally is an important handcuff for Williams in a dynasty league. Then, besides McCaffrey, I have Mark Ingram, Jr. and David Johnson. Having Williams go off will give me options going forward, as I can dangle the Williams/Jones combo, Ingram, and McCaffrey, and take whichever offer suits me best (I need a receiver or two, and am always happy to get picks). I'm getting redundant here, perhaps, but I'm very excited, and what Williams has done in recent games leads me to believe that he might be a great compliment to Rodgers, and a force going forward. His pass block, pass catching, and ability to consistently get 3 yards are elements that lead me to believe that he can develop into what many of us envisioned for Eddie Lacy after his impressive rookie campaign. And I don't foresee any weight or conditioning issues for Williams. His frame looks nice out there. Alright, I'm going to go listen to Eminem's new CD, watch the new Star Wars movie, and try to stop obsessing over Williams until Sunday afternoon.
  6. I have a bye this week, for which I'm thankful, as I need to see this situation play out another week. I have both Jones (who I've had all season) and Williams (who I picked up when he was cut during Jones time as the starter) and I wouldn't really care to start either. I am hoping Williams keeps getting the majority of the work and that I can confidently start him next week, but I think we're going to see both get used, despite what their Head Coach is saying.
  7. It pisses me off that Gordon has 7 targets to Coleman's 1. Coleman is no scrub. (I'm obviously a Coleman owner.) Kizer sucks.
  8. It LOOKS like Jones will be active. Will he be a big part of the game plan? What does this mean for Jamaal Williams?
  9. I'm not sure how popular this website is, but it's one I like and refer to often. It's, essentially, a daily list of links to articles written about fantasy sports. And....it's been down for a couple of days. I'm wondering if anyone knows why, and I'm also wondering if anyone has any alternatives to suggest. Might not be great etiquette to ask about other fantasy info sites on this fantasy info site (love this one as I do) but I figure it's worth throwing out there. Thanks. Go Juggernauts.
  10. Appreciate it. I think what you're saying makes sense. I'm in a 14 team league that has a 6 team playoff field, and I may get a first round bye (depends if I can win my division this week, which I'll do with a win). So as much as anything else, I'm hoping that Coleman can rise up in weeks 15 & 16. If he does so, not only will he help me win, he'll position me to move him for something of value should I not like how the Browns offense is shaping up prior to the 2018 season. Also, I had forgotten about Njoku, who is talented enough to also demand attention. He could conceivably push Coleman to the third receiver, who is left to fight for targets with Duke. I really like Coleman, but I don't like his situation. I feel like he could be a top 15-20 receiver as a player on about half the teams in the league. But the Browns? Ugh. I like what Cleveland has done regarding the assembling of talent (other than immediately hating the Kizer pick, and thinking that they may have gotten lucky that their trade for AJ McCarron failed to go through). They definitely need a legit QB who, if he's a rookie, will have to go through those growing pains you mentioned above in order to get to the point where he's good for 4,500 yards. I have Coleman, Devante Parker, Martavis Bryant, Will Fuller, Paul Richardson and Kenny Golladay (not to make this about me), and I'm beginning to think that I'll have to shop Coleman should he get hot and get a bump in value. Fuller, I think, will be very good with Watson. And I like Golladay a lot, too. If I conclude that they're going to be more serviceable than Coleman, I'll have to consider dangling Coleman, I guess. If Gordon looks like a clear cut stud at any point this season, or next preseason, I may than consider offering Coleman as part of a package for him. But enough about me and my team. I appreciate your breakdown of the Browns.
  11. If there's a thread on this, forgive me; I didn't see it. I have invested in Corey Coleman (dynasty) and I need him to be at least a strong #2. But regardless of what I need him to be, I'm interested in what he is and will be. Now that Josh Gordon is back, these two will take the field for the first time together. I have little faith in Deshone Kizer, but I can't help but to think that a good quarterback can feed both of these talented targets. I imagine that Gordon would be the #1 in a perfect world. However, in that perfect world, would Coleman still get to eat enough to make him the #2 receiver I need him to be. I'm interested in hearing how coaching, the running game, and whatever other nuance may impact this evolving matter.
  12. I'd rather have Fournette, too. But I don't. I do have McCaffrey, in a dynasty, and am greatly relieved to see him playing so much better.
