  1. This is beginning to feel a lot like Belichick Part Deux
  2. I've not watched Jeudy as closely (CU alum, live in Colorado) but Shenault looks really special to me. The offense has not used him to the full extent (tons of short passes, bubble screens, motion stuff) but when he is let loose he looks unstoppable. If he stays healthy I expect him to push Jeudy for the #1 WR in this class.
  3. I don't follow the Titans very closely and I'm definitely not that talented on the scouting side so I'm genuinely curious to learn more about this. What, do you feel, makes AJ Brown a better fit to Marriota's game than other WRs they have had in the past/currently?
  4. Thanks for this Faust! Anyone know if he did any of the other tests like jumps, 3 cone, etc.?
  5. With the depth at the DL, edge, and WR positions in this draft I'm actually hoping some desperate team trades up with us at 12 and we grab some more draft capital
  6. And, based on that link, it sure looks a lot like a 1-year insurance deal
  7. I, for one, do not see the need for them to sign any of the top remaining WRs. Between the trio of 2nd year guys, the likely return of Allison, possible post June 1st cuts around the league, and a deep rookie WR class I'm confident the Packers can fill out a solid receiving corps by less expensive (possibly more effective) routes.
  8. It could be a bit of recency bias (and general optimism) but in looking at today's signings and releasing Nick Perry, I feel the Packers got better today
  9. Signing Smith too? Who ARE these Packers?!?! I'm happy to see them making aggressive, strategic moves in free agency. Agree, this lines them up for a potentially effective draft - they now have some great options in a deep draft class.....go BPA, trade down to match BPA to need and accumulate picks.....or even trade up to grab one of the top difference makers.
  10. Great post. I was actually coming here to write something similar from a different perspective - that of KC. Watching the Chiefs lose that game reminded me of days gone by when the Packers could score and score.....and not stop anyone else from scoring.....ever.
  11. Maybe, maybe not. Not at all to suggest McDaniels = Belichick but I do recall Belichick's tenure with Cleveland being not so impressive (as McDaniel's was in Denver). Things seemed to turn out just fine for him later on in his career. Perhaps McDaniels learned a thing or two in the past few years and grew as a person and coach. Perhaps that results in him doing a much better job his second go round as the head honcho. Perhaps he reignites Rodgers' greatness. Or perhaps he isn't made of head coach material and Green Bay goes all "Matt Patricia". Who knows. I wouldn't be upset if they signed McDaniels (unless he leaves us at the altar ala Indy) - and I wouldn't be jumping with joy either. I'd probably be cautiously optimistic.
  12. I see what you're saying and think you have a point. I also think guys like Nuk and Thomas are great not just because they have a QB feeding them a ton of targets....they get fed a ton of targets because they get open consistently, catch just about everything their hands touch, and show up each and every week. For me it's what differentiates them from, say, a Davante Adams. If Adams loses Rodgers I think we see a moderate to significant downtick in his production......same situation in Houston or New Orleans and I think you can still count on Nuk and Thomas to put up WR1-ish numbers.
  13. 72 team dynasty (6 leagues, 12 teams each, top 3 from each league makes the playoffs where you can play against teams who may have similar players). QB -RB-RB-WR-WR-TE-Flex-Flex, and RB's get 50% more points per yard rushing. Goff or Baker Gurley, Mixon, Lindsey, Samuels Cooper, Lockett Ebron Up against Baker Saquon, Chubb, Zeke, Gus Edwards JuJu, Corey Davis Ebron
  14. I'm in a 72 team dynasty league (6 individual leagues 12 teams each, play a regular season then the playoffs are the top teams from all 6 leagues) and I'm in the championship for the first time. We start QB RB RB WR WR TE Flex Flex. It's PPR and there is a rushing yardage bonus.....receiving yards get 0.1 points each but rushing yards get 0.15 points each so it's of benefit to have high yardage RB's in your lineup. Unless you're loaded with studs at WR most guys play 3-4 RBs. So, I need to choose a starting lineup from the following Goff, Mayfield, Marriota Gurley, Mixon, Lindsey, Jaylen Samuels, Damien Willians, Josh Adams Amari Cooper, Tyler Lockett, Dante Pettis, Dede Westbrook Ebron, Njoku My opponent has submitted his early week starting lineup as Mayfield Saquon, Chubb, Conner, Zeke Corey Davis, JuJu Ebron It's a tough match up for me for sure so I'm totally overthinking my lineup decisions. Any thoughts, advice, or perspective are welcome. Thanks!
  15. Thanks @travdogg. I appreciate your perspective So you don't think Ekeler loses many touches to Justin Jackson?
