  1. It will be interesting to see how Shepard is mixed in this year. The team added WR Brandon Marshall and TE Evan Engram this offseason, and that will cut into the target opportunities for Shepard. He should be drafted as a WR5, and projecting the second-year pro for around 50 catches seems 50 catches only huh? last year he was 36th wr in ppr scoring 36.Sterling Shepard WR NYG 184.40 pts. Marshall and Engram added yes, imo Shepard is too good to not use more and should get much closer to last years numbers than just 50 receptions would bring...Beckham and Marshall is no spring chicken if he misses time Shep might go real good..giants have a nice schedule and some nice spots in ff playoffs. Beckham, Marshall and now Engram will get the defenses attention most leaving Shepard one on one with third corners or safties covering him. He gonna have lots of room to work inside or out. last year he had 65 receptions for 683 yards and 8 tds.......i do think he'll have a very hard time matching the 8 tds but still think hes too talented for them to not use as much.
  2. Footballguys view: It's always nerve-wracking when the cart is brought out. The initial reports are positive, but we'll wait for further results. The Jaguars are likely to run the ball more this year, making Lee (their no3 WR) no more than a WR6 for fantasy owners. Lee won me a bunch of leagues last year when all said he was wr #4 or 5 wr there...now hes #2 from all i can check into. I think u need to go look at his numbers in ppr scoring last year and give this another thought... here is where he finished last year in ppr..his numbers in 8-10 games were excellent all things considered.. 36.Sterling Shepard WRNYG8 Free Agent 184. 37.Steve SmithWRBAL8 Free Agent 183. 38.Cameron MeredithWRCHI9 Free Agent 181. 39.Dez BryantWRDAL7 Free Agent 181. 40.Marqise Lee WRJAC5 Free Agent 180. 41.DeSean JacksonWRWAS9 Free Agent 180. 42.Anquan BoldinWRDET10 Free Agent 173. 43.Marvin Jones ill take those numbers and use him match up wise ar wr #3 or flex start just off how well he did me last year and not much has changed except he may see more targets his way. Fournette will run a lot sure but hey will fall behind some games to have to go to the air
  3. Footballguys view: Bradford performed admirably considering that he was behind one of the worst lines in the league with almost no help from the running game. There are so many quarterbacks that can outperform ADP in drafts this year that Bradford shouldn't be a primary target, but if you get caught on the wrong side of a run, he'll be a good high floor fallback. I'll say this will be incorrect and hell be a worthy starer in 12 team league. If O line is improved (it needs to be) he might even surprise you. He should be a primary target late in drafts as a more than capable back up, his schedule imo is really good.
  4. I've always wondered who writes the footballguys view that's under the news blurbs on the newsblogger page? Is it the same person all the time, who is it Joe Bryant, Dodds? Do they think a rookie TE will really see more targets than Sterling Shepard will? Giants | Evan Engram keeps impressing Sat Jun 10, 11:03 PM New York Giants TE Evan Engram is generating excitement with his performance at OTAs, according to head coach Ben McAdoo, and the Giants have been using more sets that feature two tight ends. Footballguys view: This is a drumbeat that has been consistent throughout the offseason. Engram can be a dangerous tight end because he basically plays like a super-sized wide receiver. The rookie from Ole Miss is likely to become a favorite target of QB Eli Manning. Engram should end up third in the pecking order for targets behind Odell Beckham Jr. and Brandon Marshall. Link to story Many times ive begged to differ some others much more than this Engram story, Ill say Shepard sees more targets than the rookie Engram. Be nice to have a thread to post the opinions of others vs the Footballguys view.. Ill do that here as long as allowed and welcome others to do the same. Many times ive read the view and think whoever this is they seem to think they no exactly whats going on. I need a place to come and give my humble opinion of their views. Stick it to football only..no grammar nazis needed...
  5. He's BACK!!!!!!!!! Yes deal with it cuz it's happening!!!!!!
  6. I have had a very good take on this matter since its first began and have drafted my teams accordingly. But like a few have mentioned i seen (ive just checked this post for first time 10 minutes ago and don't post here often anymore as I'm very busy these days). This is my take on it and id be very surprised if i am not pretty much right on most of not all of it. It may not be worded perfectly so don't kill me but you'll get my point. I am far from any English major lol. Im making this post because ive felt this way all along now and every vibe i get is telling me this is whats going on and how it may play out and want to share it with you guys and gals in this very long and interesting thread about a huge issue for us FF players and NFL fans alike esp..Browns fans. Gordon IMO will catch a break and for many different reasons. #1 being the timing of it all and that his last tests in question (for cannabis, which is a joke in and of itself) its legal and being prescribed by Doctors for everything from glaucoma to back pain not to mention many other things as well and its also LEGAL and or decriminalized in a few states and about to be in many more ) were low and barely above the threshold and another test that was taken that was actually under it. I know for a fact that second hand smoke can cause a positive test if the levels they test for are as low as the NFL threshold is. A relative of mine many years ago now beat a case where he lost his job for a positive test for pot and hired a lawyer and it was determined that it was indeed form second hand smoke when eh was riding around with his buddies and they were smoking with windows done and on many occasion, so he showed a positive result for cannabis in his system but just barely enough to show that it was in his system but not bear where a regular smoker or pothead levels would be. Well anyways he beat the case and got his job back and this was at least 15-20 years ago now. So it can and has happened before. Why the NFLPA didn't negotiate cannabis use out of the contract was a bad call on there part. NBA players from what ive been told did in fact have weed testing taken out of the cba (if anyone knows if this is 100% a fact chime in but ill Google it in a minute myself but i did hear that did happen because 70% of the NBA players or some very high number like that use the herb and wanted not to be tested and punished for using it) Now i will never say Gordon is a saint or very smart because he must be pretty dam foolish or stupid to be close to blowing what could be at least a $50-100 million dollar career over pot and whatever other things he tested positive for. He should have either knew better and did nothing or figured out how all the others get around or pass the testing. But anyways the kid has great timing, both because and don't lol me either because FF is now a huge factor in all things NFL and Goodell and Co. know it, the bigger the star the more it will become a bigger issue for them and the Cleveland team, fans and FF players. He also has a very strong case in regard to his last test as one was just above and another just below the legal threshold and both just slightly showing up at all which is what happens when it might be from being near or around second hand smoke and inhaling it by just breathing the air that you are in at the time especially if its in a closed car or room. Well anyways, This is entirely another issue but i do have some very strong opinions and insight into this matter as well and it does have a bit to do with the Gordon case as far as being such a light suspension. Ray Rice imo just caught a major break in his situation hes the one who should have gotten a year out and if the NFL new at all that the 2nd and very ugly video of Rice actually punching his wife to be right in the face as hard as he could with a hay-maker kill punch which caught her square on the jaw and knocked her out cold and concussed her, she next awoke in the ER from what ive read about that situation ( read that description of the act by a person who did in fact see the video) so had the NFL at all thought it was possible of the 2nd video surfacing they would have given him at least eight games imo..the public and women rights groups would have demanded that or worse and picketed games etc etc imo and women are the #1 target audience for the NFL as far as gaining new fans, lets face it they have all us guys already, so. I just have to believe that would be the case and that the NFL has been assured that that tape has either been destroyed or will never get into the hands of the TMZ's of the world or Rice would never have gotten off so easily.Now back to the subject at hand...Gordons situation This whole thing I believe all has a lot to do with what Jim Irsay will get for his situation/punishment which will come out after all the players issues are done and which will likely be soon after Gordon's i would think? I say the NFLPA and the NFL are talking behind closed doors about these things and that if Irsay gets off lightly then the NFLPA won't make a huge issue of it IF there players get a shake also. Jim Irsay does not want to miss many or any of his teams games, that you can be sure of and is Goodells boss and a billionaire. So chances are great this has something to do with the outcomes of some players suspensions and disciplines especially the stars like Gordon (who could be a one of a kind talent and top 5 WR playing now and possibly ever if he gets his act together, hes that good and talented and NFL needs his types on the filed playing) who help carry the sport on TV and with us fans and FF players. I say he get 4-8 games tops but have no clue if he will or won't screw it up again after that. My two cents....carry on.
  7. Tim said that was mutually agreed upon. Is that inaccurate?I never held him to it but thought it was lame.I wasn't aware that you thought it was lame, and I don't think it's a fair comparison. If you want to PM your address, I will send you that money first thing tomorrow. I have never welched on a bet in my life, and I don't like being compared to anyone who does.I can't take your money. You made the bet and then said you wanted out. I agree it's not the same but its something. Whatever though. I made enough on the Obama win elsewhere.I wanted out right after I made our bet because I felt bad about making a political bet. I would never have taken myself out of it without your permission. I offered to donate the money to charity, which I did. I don't think it's "something". I don't think I did anything wrong. I don't like the comparison being brought up here. This ######## didn't try and back out of the bet. He didn't ask me for my permission. He simply bailed when it was time to pay up. That's my fault, of course: you can't rely on any bets you make over the internet. But when the same guy returns a year later and pretends as if nothing happens, I'm not going to shut up about it. Might as well let it go. Lhucks finally paid me after a year, but DonnyT is still avoiding settling up on a $50 bet he made with me. One or two others schmucks from around here still owe me from a ff league. Of course Otis still owes me a $1. who the F r u to call me or anyone names? I would not spit on you now. I was banned from logging into or reading this site for FOUR years and don't post here much at all anymore. I do know this i have the same email address that i still use and check on when i was posting here way back when and have posted here in the past for you to email me and let me know wtf ur talking about! What year are you talking about how am i to know who won what bet, I have no idea what your talking about?..i mean come this is bogus BS..what a nerve you have to post this BS! AHole! What was the bet when was the bet...do you have a screen shot, don't just post I owe you money with no PROOF, i call BS and that's worse than welshing Have you emailed me ever with any specifics about this at all or is it you who are the schmuck for calling me out like this, again i know i use the same email i joined this site with way back in the yellow board days? A simple email with specifics would have done the trick but posting this BS with no proof is bogus! For all i know its you who lost this so called bet and owe me money...I've made/paid and collected hundreds of side action bets over the years so please spare me your BS and keep me out of your BS here or PROVE what you say and just maybe you might get paid! I say maybe cuz im sick or hearing about you calling me these names over something i have no clue what so ever about!
  8. HOF? Post like this make me chuckle out loud. HOF? Come on let the kid play a GAME or 50 in the NFL before such talk can even begin to be talked about! Jeez! HOF?
