  1. Robby Anderson turned into one of the premier deep threats in the NFL last season, finishing 12th in Air Yards (1,487) and sixth in yards accrued on 20-plus-yard targets (408), although his fortunes took a downturn after Josh McCown - who had been the QB8 in scoring between Weeks 1 and 13 - got injured. Baked into Anderson's ADP this year is a series of off-field problems, notably a reckless driving charge (he pleaded no contest) and a confrontation with a police officer, but is the talented but troubled receiver worth a shot? The Jets are devoid of dynamic options in the passing game, and no player on their wide receiver depth chart offers the skill set he does. In short, Anderson has the potential to be everything the Jets hoped former second round pick Devin Smith would become - but can Anderson push on in 2018 and put together a 1,000+-yard campaign? Does the quarterback situation, with McCown entering his age-39 season, concern you? Is this offense one we can truly put our faith in?
  2. This offseason, the Bears brass injected some much-needed speed and playmaking potential into their receiving corps, all in an effort to make life easier for Mitchell Trubisky. An offense that seemed to be in the Stone Age under John Fox now looks like a sleek, sophisticated 21st century machine with new coach Matt Nagy at the controls. Trey Burton was one of the jewels in the crown of the Chicago offseason, coming over from Philadelphia on a four-year contract that will see him play the 'Travis Kelce' role, or U tight end, in Nagy's offense. Spot duty in Philadelphia showed us some glimpses of his potential, but he was always playing second fiddle to Zach Ertz. Now, Burton will be the band leader in Chicago, but how do you see his fortunes panning out in 2018? Key questions include: How does the presence of Adam Shaheen affect his upside, if at all? Are you concerned there are too many mouths to feed in Chicago now? Is Mitchell Trubisky a quarterback you trust to squeeze TE1 value out of Burton? Your feedback would be appreciated.
  3. The Cardinals have undergone something of a face lift this offseason, with a new coach in Steve Wilks and a fresh-faced whizz kid quarterback ready to take the helm of the franchise for the foreseeable future. The return of David Johnson should augur well for this offense's prospects, and we can't forget about the ageless wonder that is Larry Fitzgerald, but Christian Kirk strikes me as a player who could make an immediate impact. Will Kirk's skill set translate to an immediate role in the offense, with any concern over his rookie designation being tossed aside? Or is it a simple fact that the Cardinals can't afford not to have Kirk in the starting line-up due to their dearth of other quality, proven options? How high is Kirk's ceiling, anyway? And which quarterback - Sam Bradford or Josh Rosen - would be best suited to take advantage of the rookie receiver's immense talent? I would be eager to get all of your thoughts.
  4. Black and Blue IDP Dynasty Outline: Competitive league with fantastic, dynamic format is seeking four owners for the 2016 season and beyond. League has been running since 2010.

Entry fee: $63 League scoring: http://football7.myfantasyleague.com/2015/options?L=45461&O=09 League bylaws: http://football7.myfantasyleague.com/2015/options?L=45461&O=26 AVAILABLE TEAMS OPEN TEAM 1 Roster: http://football7.myfantasyleague.com/2015/options?L=45461&O=07&F=0007 OPEN TEAM 2 Roster: http://football7.myfantasyleague.com/2015/options?L=45461&O=07&F=0008 OPEN TEAM 3 Roster: http://football7.myfantasyleague.com/2015/options?L=45461&O=07&F=0009 OPEN TEAM 4 Roster: http://football7.myfantasyleague.com/2015/options?L=45461&O=07&F=0010 If you are interested in any of the above teams, please drop me a PM or email me at larkin.dave@gmail.com. As some of you may be aware, I am a Footballguys staff member and have just recently taken over as commissioner. This is a terrific league, and having four owners depart at one time has nothing to do with the quality of the league and everything to do with these guys simply not having the time to pour into it anymore (work, life, family). I can honestly say this is the best league I've ever participated in. I hope you will be able to join us.

    Why not Giovani Bernard at 1.01?

    I can certainly see the argument, especially with the vacuum of talent at RB in Cincinnati at the moment, but I believe this will be a 'pick your poison' 1.1 pick. I'm glad I don't have the 1.1 in any of my leagues.

    Dynasty Rankings

    Most definitely. I have watched every snap of every Panthers game so far this season and I can tell you that Stewart is outplaying Williams, and it's not close. Stewart is running with great power, low pad level and ferocity, punishing defenders for attempting to get in his path. Williams is pedestrian at best, breaking off some decent runs here and there but it is obvious that he lacks the quickness he used to possess.I would be buying on Stewart - Newton will not be the primary rushing threat in this offense in the long term. Chudzinski will, in my opinion, rely on the ground game more in the coming weeks after what happened to the Panthers on Sunday against Tennessee.
  7. Just got through watching all of the Week 2 preseason games so far

    Was that inspired by a certain "playoffs" rant?
