  1. -Denver has faced some tough D's -O line is young and inexperienced -Kubiak's O doesn't suit Peyton under center -CJ hurt his toe/ankle -Peyton played MUCH better in shotgun. It bought him time to throw and gave Sanders and DT time to get open -passing game will lead to more open lanes for CJ, he looked fine on the plays where there was an actual hole vs a wall of Red defenders blitzing and crashing in on him. Concern, yes. But no need to panic if you are an owner. CJ may not be a top 5 RB, but the potential is there for a solid season. Good buy low candidate in my eyes if the owner in your league has lost his head.
  2. I hesitated but took CJ at 8 and Dez at 9 (little fun league with my son). Gotta love week 1 injuries to first and second round pics AND all the SKY is FALLING that comes with it.
  3. 9 weeks in the very beginning of his rookie season while playing for a terrible Tampa Bay team no less.
  4. Now Fasano resorted to purposely wipe out Kelce's catches in a pathetic effort of undermine Special K?
  5. GAMER! Why say this? On the field, he clearly decided very quickly that he definitely couldn't get it. The sentence in red says everything. The moment you think too much is the moment you make mistakes. It's not in a WR's mentality to run across the field and dive for the football. Does anyone think Randy Moss would have got that fumble? Brilliant deduction skills, Hopkins. In other news, water is wet, ice is cold, and you sir, are an IDIOT.
  6. ...on fantasy benches everywhere. I've started him every week. Don't ask... Haha damn I bet he's been a nice little surprise a few weeks there, eh? I've got a ton of options at my 2 flex spots and this news has me wondering if this is the week to give him a start. Would be starting over the likes of Patterson, Benjamin, Robinson and possibly Beckham. Sanu has been sitting on my bench but with the injury to Calvin Johnson, I may just have to pull the trigger this week. Interesting, I was reading something where even with AJ Green in the game, Sanu was getting about 8 targets a game, plus he has this knack for the big play. Now, imagine if Green is not there, his targets may well go into the double digits. He's definitely not a bad play as a # 2 WR with Green out. And with Green in, I think he's still a legit flex play. OK, here's what CBSSportsline has to say about Sanu: Mohamed Sanu coexisting fine with A.J. Green When Mohamed Sanu had 84 yards and a touchdown Week 2 against Atlanta, it seemed like just a byproduct of A.J. Green being sidelined by a sprained toe, but in two games with Green back in the lineup, Sanu has remained a regular part of the Bengals' passing game, getting at least eight targets in each. He had a season-high nine Week 5 at New England and was about as productive as Green, catching five passes for 70 yards and a touchdown. In standard CBSSports.com leagues, he has now scored double-digit Fantasy points in three straight games. Sanu will never be to Fantasy owners what Green is, but he has good size and has delivered his share of big plays already this season. He won't be the most exciting waiver claim this week, but in leagues where wide receivers come at a premium, he might be a pretty nice find. No talk of Marvin Jones out of the picture due to injury and headed back?
  7. He trucked some cat on his way to the end zone. Didn't catch a number, so I don't know if StL's 2's were out there. http://zippy.gfycat.com/BriskFamousAlligatorsnappingturtle.webm ran over some little white dude...not surprised Racist
  8. The Rams were missing both starting DT's, MLB, top 3 CB's, DE Quinn barely played. Let's not jump the gun Couldn't see the game, this is why I asked. Thanks for the info.
  9. How is Ingram looking specifically? That Rams Defense isn't too bad.
  10. Carson Palmer along with that offensively offensive line may very well be holding him back.
  11. Good posting. But it won't be recognized as such because people are convinced that the jury has returned and Ingram is guilty of sucking and is sentenced to watching Pierre Thomas steal his touches every week. I've never been able to land Ingram before for a price I thought acceptable, but count me in as a buyer this year if more "fluff" keeps coming out and all the haters ignore it and keep his price suppressed. Ummm, sorry, but he is guilty of sucking so far. A 1st round RB finishing 45th and 35th in non-PPR (far, far worse in PPR, which I play in all 3 leagues) is sucking. For those of us who play PPR, his floor is way worse than a RB3/flex play. That said, he should do better this year, because Ivory won't get 200+ yards like he has the past two years. On the other side, I don't think that Mark Ingram is a talented NFL runner so far. 3.9 ypc when D's are 100% focusing on Brees is not good. Thomas has averaged 4.8ypc with the Saints and Sproles averaged 6.9 ypc in 2011 and 5.1 ypc in 2012. Brees has averaged around 8ypa with the Saints, so with those two RBs ypc and Brees' ypa, why would they put more of a focus on Ingram? I sure don't think some of the 1000 yard 8-9 TD projections are even close. One quick question for everyone, is anyone worried about Sproles getting more carries? He was brought in by Payton just like Ingram was drafted by Payton. Sproles had twice as many carries in 2011 as he did in 2012. Maybe Payton will get back to given more carries to Sproles. It has been mentioned many times that Ingram's carries have primarily been on short yardage/goal line carries. In those cases, the D is NOT focused 100% on Brees, they are focused on stopping Ingram from picking up the first down. This significantly lowers Ingram's YPC numbers. Feel free to post those. He has almost 280 carries in the past two years and posts above it says that Ingram had 7 carries inside the 5 yard line. Are you saying those 7 carries are really the reason why his ypc aren't that great? Sproles has 17 TDs and Graham has 20 TDs the last two years. Both of them get more opportunities at the goal line than Ingram has, so even in short yardage teams are focusing on Brees as much as they are on Ingram. Hmmm, let's think about the D-Coordinator. Should we focus on Brees, who averages around 3 TDs passes a game or Ingram, who averages 0.3 TDs per game. Sorry, but unless you can show me that he averages well over 4 ypc on all his non-short yardage carries, I don't believe his ypc is affected when the guy has 7 goal line carries in 280 carries. I wouldn't even say that 7 goal line carries in 2 years qualifies as a short yardage back. It isn't just the short yardage role that limits Ingram. It's the predictability of their offense when he's in the game. Last year he played 266 offensive snaps and he rushed the ball 156 times, so they ran the ball 59% of the time he was in the game. Pierre Thomas played 388 snaps and he rushed the ball 105 times, so they ran the ball 27% of the time he was in the game. You think defenses don't know this?! When Ingram is in the game the defense is keying to stop the run. When Pierre Thomas is in the game they are defending the pass. Sproles is even more unpredictable in the run game as he played 446 offensive snap with just 48 rushes (11%). Thanks, Ninja...this is what I was referring to. It accounts for much more than just short yardage carries. If Payton has recognized this, and it sounds like he might have, we could see a slightly different brand of playcalling on his part that will help open up some imagination when Ingram is in the game. Add to that a fully healthy player, and we might get to see the guy NO moved up in the draft for 2 years ago.

I wouldn't even say that 7 goal line carries in 2 years qualifies as a short yardage back. Are there sources that will break down how many short yardage chances NO has had total in the last two years as a team? 7 chances inside the 5 is fine, but how many did he have outside the 5? Where does NO's Oline rank when it comes to run blocking the past two years? How healthy has Ingram been the past two years? How close to 100% was he playing? Why do I specifically remember reading on many occasion about NO's unimaginative play calling and the Defenses basically knowing that when Ingram is in the game they run the majority of the time? So whether that is short yardage or not, Ingram was keyed on. In Short yardage the line is still going to be stacked with 8 or 9 in the box whether its a run or a pass. There are simply too many variable for me to simply say the guy sucks.Will he light the world on fire this year and turn into Ray Rice? No. But can he very realistically produce like a Ridley/BGGE did in NE and put up 1100 and 10 TD's? I think it is very possible.

  14. everyone looks strong and fast during the first week of training camp Jordy Nelson underwent knee surgery Monday and he will be out for the rest of training camp. Eddie Lacy (hamstring) is a "concern" for Friday's preseason opener after missing his second consecutive practice Thursday. Second opinion confirms Bulaga done for year Just busting your stones...
  15. Is Ingram's situation really that much different from Ridley's in NE? Why couldn't a healthy Ingram put up 1100 and 10 td's on a juggernaut offense? I think Humpback hits the nail right on the head when he brings up the time of possession stat. NO cannot win unless they get ahead and STAY there. As good as Brees is, he doesn't exactly have Green Bay's WR's to throw to. Jimmy Graham is great, but outside of him, NO is average at best at WR. I think that we'll see NO work harder at getting ahead with more Sproles than Ingram...then once ahead, we are likely to see more Ingram than Sproles to try and grind out the clock so their putrid Defense can get some rest. My fear though is that with 2 of NO's pass rushers getting hurt already, that D won't be able to get pressure on opposing QB's and NO could find themselves constantly trying to get ahead like they did last year. Only time will tell, but I actually like what I'm hearing from Payton and the news out of camp that Ingram is running with the 1's and looking healthy/quick/strong.
  16. He's a good blocker, and that's about it. He has hands of stone.
  17. I don't think the playbook was designed to really do much more than what Tarvaris Jackson was asked to do in 2011: somewhere between 220-260 yards. They might change that up in the offseason, but the truth is the Seahawks are a ball control team and we'd rather run the ball than pass.I honestly don't see Wilson's stats changing much these first couple of years. Maybe if the fundamental makeup on the team shifts I could see a change, but we're not trying to quickly score a la the Falcons. As a matter of fact, I see ball control as a large part of why the defense looks so good this year.I know the Seahawks are a ball control team, at least they have been. Hard to see them getting too far from it. However, with Wilson's talent, and the amount of fun Seattle is having, why not open the playbook up? If Wilson can handle it, let him turn the gas on a little more like they have the last 3rd of the season. If Seattle adds a WR weapon and continues to develop that offense, they won't have to worry about winning close games. Sure, that puts more pressure on the D...but that D has an attitude and I think they might just thrive on that challenge.
  18. Unlike the past 3 pages...I HAVE very much enjoyed watching Wilson develop this season. All he has done is come in, work hard, encourage his fellow players, say the right things, do the right things and earn the respect of his coaches and the fans. Pete Carol has modeled for the league (a strong RB and Def helped)how to protect and ease a talented QB into the position. I am especially enjoying Carol unleash Wilson and let him win games now, rather than trying to keep him from not losing them. Perhaps the breaks could have come off earlier? Maybe Wilson was more ready to assume the reigns in the earlier part of the season? As evidence by what he was doing in pre-season and after Carol let him loose, I think he could have put up much bigger and better numbers that despite being in Seattle and on the West coast, would be pushing him even closer to consideration for the O-ROY.What do you guys think Wilson's numbers would have looked like had he been given the full on green light from the beginning like Luck and RG3 were given?
  19. He's backed himself into a corner. If he goes back to Smith now, he'll look wishy-washy as hell.As a 9er fan, I'm just afraid Harbaugh has two average QB's on his hands.
  20. I gotcha. The popcorn was me waiting for a response is all. My bad. Kaep had good rushing numbers, that is what saved his fake football day.
  21. or 16 ptsScored 19 in my league(Without a single td)Curious, if Kaep can put up 19 with no TD's...what kind of points do the QB's that actually SCORE TD's and don't turn the ball over put up?Huh?Not sure how to make the question any clearer, Jed. Clear as mud. 19 points with no TD's scored is nothing but spectacular, I'm guessing you just don't want to admit it?I'll try again, since apparently you are rather defensive over me asking Shady a simple question. Kaep scored 19 with no TD's in his league, while scoring less than 8 in my leagues....I'm simply curious what other QB's put up stat wise. Simple as that.Kaep...7.5 pointsBrady...9Stafford 17Cutler 19Luck 29Rodgers 11Ryan 9.5Cam 27.5Wilson 23

  23. No. He's damn good though.Then who?Take a wild guess.The other rookie QB with 4 TD's...and 3 interceptions...that had to come from behind to beat a craptastic Detroit D? Yeah, the "coming from behind" part had nothing to do with his defense giving up 8,000 yards. And Wilson has All-Pro receivers akin to Reggie Wayne to throw to? Last year's Colts team was 2-14 because they had the Scientist at QB rather than Peyton Manning. That team last year struggled, but looked FAR WORSE than they are on offense with a bad QB. A BAD D only serves up more opportunity for Luck to HAVE to put up more numbers. I'd guess Luck wins ROY as well, so I'm not trying to rail on you too bad. Just pointing out that each one is held back/pushed forward by the situation dealt to them by their team.

Is this what happens when average D's have a week to game plan against him?
