  1. Depends on what you need. Safe play is Douglas, but if you've got a solid roster and are wanting to take a chance on a breakout I'd go Bryant at home today.
  2. I'd be hard pressed to bench Ingram. Has a nose for the end zone this year iMO.
  3. Hilton owner needing a flex play from one of these guys.
  4. Like the upside of West better, and Ben Tate can never make it through a season healthy. I'd lean him.
  5. What say the masses? A bit torn on this one going into a draft.
  6. I'm with the previous poster. I'd much rather hang onto Gronk because if he stays healthy he's going to be a huge TD machine playing a position with not a lot of elite fantasy talent.
  7. Thanks for the feedback. I've been leaning Bell based on age and Murray's injury history.
  8. Standard scoring league. I initially leaned towards going with Bell but now think I might be nuts passing up on Murray. The injury history with him scares me some though. What do you guys think here?
  9. I'm no Keenan Allen fan, but you can't use him in a comparison like this. Maynard was barely D1 quality... any pass beyond 8 yards was an adventure for him. Meanwhile guys like Patterson/Hunter, Hopkins, and Bailey all had legit NFL (and in the case of Boyd and Smith high caliber NFL) talents throwing them the rock and playing in offenses that played to those strengths. It's ike comparing the production and use of Larry Fitzgerald the last couple of years to Marques Colston and Jordy Nelson. Doesn't really speak to the overall value and talent of the player.
  10. How would Eli Manning have looked had he been playing in the SB when he was 23 years old? Can't hold it against Ben that he was a hell of a lot better player out of the gates than Manning was. Did Ben play poorly in SB XL? No doubt about it. But how many 23 year olds take their teams to the SB to begin with? How many played as Ben did when as a 23 year old he won three straight road playoff games with a QB rating well over 100? I hate when comparisons are painted with such broad strokes. It's all about the big picture to me and considering all the details.....the hows and whys, not just numbers on a sheet of paper.
  11. Wallace will sign his tender some time in the next couple of weeks. He might not get a long term deal, but he's not missing Sundays over this. He'll make more money playing on the tender this year than he's made in his first three years combined.
  12. I don't get this stigma that Pittsburgh doesn't pay top dollar for their players. For the last decade+ they've been basically right at the salary cap every year. Every other team in their division can't say that (especially notorious cheapskates like Cincinnati and Cleveland, who have been 30-40 million under the cap at times). They signed Roethlisberger to a $100 million dollar deal. Made Troy the highest paid safety when they signed him. Signed Woodley and Timmons to big contracts last season. The young guys they want to keep, they generally lock up long term. They've let fading vets go in years past (Joey Porter and Alan Faneca come to mind), but those were seen as smart decisions since those guys were clearly on the decline (and in Porter's place they had James Harrison in waiting). The last young guy they could have locked up but didn't was probably Burress back in the '04 offseason, but I don't think they had the room to sign both he and Ward to big deals. Considering the next season Ward finished as the SB MVP, clearly it's hard to say they made a wrong call on that. Signing Brown to an extension was going to happen either way. As someone else just said, all this means is that they're probably going to treat Wallace on a year to year basis now. Maybe they sign him long term still (they have the room under the cap this season to do it), or maybe they just let him play on the tender, but for the time being he's going nowhere.
  13. Good post, and I agree.
  14. Harrison is not as good as Matthews. Chad Clifton didn't even need help with him.And the Steelers back up tight end Matt Spaeth pretty much controlled Matthews on the edges in the run game, so what's your point?
