  1. They like him, but Im not sure he is the long term solution. I think they will look to replace Lynch with a RB in the 2016 draft or 2017 draft. The best hope is you get the end of this year and 2016 out of Rawls. Or sell him when it looks like Lynch is out of the way. He's shown enough that people will simply assume he'll be a workhorse RB1 (discounting the potential for competition to be brought in, a potential RBBC, etc.), and at least a few will be willing to pay you accordingly. The about what Hill could have netted you last offseason. Cash in on that assumption and convert that value into a more established/stable commodity. Well I was the buyer. I paid what's currently the #7 rookie pick in the upcoming rookie draft for him. If news comes out that Lynch is shutting it down, I will likely be able to sell for more - but in the meantime I'm using him till I know what the deal is with Forte and Lacy. I think that was a wise investment. You should be able to sell him for a (probably significant) profit...likely before next year even begins. If Lynch hangs them up after the season, I'd try to move him to someone that's hot for him before the draft (assuming there's an offer out there worth your while). If the Seahawks take someone high, or bring in a noted pass-catcher for COP duties, it'll kill his buzz somewhat.

  3. We've been told for years the guys in front of him have been turds, even gotten lots of cute nicknames for them all.Maybe he isn't done, but the fact that so many supporters can call all these guys who have been standing in his way terrible and yet he continually gets buried on depth charts, held inactive, traded for peanuts and cut despite a slew of injuries to guys in front of him has to leave you thinking he's just not that good. Michael ended up being a turd himself, but that doesn't mean that all the reasons for hanging on to him were off base. This is a prime example, IMO. Let's look at the guys he has been behind for any length of time: Lynch is obviously not a turd, and nobody ever said that he was. The Seahawks preferred Turbin to Michael in passing situations, and he's subsequently been cut by two teams. Randle was given his shot as the incumbent, but everyone knew that he was a headcase and he was subsequently cut. That just leaves McFadden, who is averaging 3.8 YPC this year after averaging less than 3.5 YPC the previous three years. Hardly the stuff of legend. Michael has a career 4.6 YPC, so it seems fair to assume that it's not his actual running of the football that's the main hangup that the coaches have with him. Given that nobody here knows what's going on behind the scenes, it wasn't unreasonable based on what we do know to think that Michael could do more than any of those guys if given a shot. Maybe he's just too dumb to get down the offense/protections. Maybe he's a goofball, or a trouble maker, or simply not committed to his job. Whatever the reason, it's obvious now that it's serious enough that he'll likely never get that shot. What I don't get is all the people playing the "It should have been obvious he was a bust." card. How obvious could it be if not a single person here knew what the actual problem with Michael was? There was speculation based on inference, but it is still just speculation and having one's speculation be better than another's doesn't really make for great chest-thumping material. Anyway, I'm glad this is over.
  4. Coughlin loves to run the ball, and that offense is just begging for a power RB inside to take advantage of the defensive looks they get due to their many three wide sets. If Darkwa can establish himself as an effective force between the tackles, he'll find himself with a fantasy relevant number of snaps soon enough.
  5. Yeah when he stood up, he turned to the sideline with a scowl on his face and threw his arms up in the air. He was immediately pulled. I think there's a screw loose. You sure about that order? Seems a lot more likely he heard the signal to come out, and then he turned to the sideline and expressed his frustration before running off the field.
  6. I had Latimer in a deep dynasty with a relatively small bench size (11 starters, 26 man rosters), and I packaged him with L. Green to obtain Eifert before the season started. If I had him now in that format, I would test the trade waters with whoever I thought valued him the most, but ultimately I would consider him droppable.
  7. Have to say that 120 total yards and 5 receptions is a pretty good week. Not quite as good as 201 yards and 4 TDs, or 148 yards and 3 TDs, but surely enough to cement a significant weekly role. After all, Belichick doesn't care about the ball hitting the ground if you're putting up yards.
  8. They are all in the same tier and approximately the same age. Doubt there's anything but a cosmetic preference there.
  9. There's zero chance that he doesn't make the team.
  10. Ya I agree 100 percent on this. But does he regress with the added coverage? Getting the top CB on him? Top CBs rarely play the slot, and that's where Cobb will be spending most of his time in 3 wide sets. Other top CBs only play one side of the field, and that's easy enough to bypass in 2 wide sets. I don't think it affects Cobb's production all that much. Not really worried about teams double-covering. Safeties have to respect whoever is running the deep routes. Cobb might get a few more of those, but he'll still likely be primarily used as a short and intermediate threat. It's not like he's going to be routinely fighting a CB and safety 40 yards down the field for jump balls.
  11. Cobb will get a few more targets, but GB will spread most of the excess targets and TD opportunities around so I don't think the offensive boost will be huge. I do think this negates some of the concern about him regressing, though, so you could argue there's less risk in selecting him. Slightly higher ceiling plus slightly higher floor = bump for me.
  12. I actually think Hunter has become a decent buy low. Hunter's currently being ranked in the 60s among WRs, and that's consistent with his April ADP (which will likely fall even further once the post-draft info starts being released). People seem to be glossing over the short-term (struggles vs press, likely struggles with playbook, etc.) and long-term (off the field red-flags) bust risk of DGB. Hunter is likely going to have opportunity this year and improved QB play, and I'd say there's a reasonable chance (~35%) that he does something significant with it. I'd rather own him than guys like Kenny Stills, Blackmon, Cruz, and Harvin (for example) that he is consistently ranked and drafted behind. I'd also take him over any WR drafted after Lockett in the 2015 draft (includes guys like Coates and Strong who are also generally ranked higher and drafted before him).
  13. "Indiana running back Tevin Coleman ran the 40-yard dash at his campus pro day Wednesday, and he was timed at between 4.35 and 4.4 seconds, according to sources." http://www.baltimoresun.com/sports/ravens/ravens-insider/bal-indiana-running-back-tevin-coleman-runs-435-44-at-pro-day-as-ravens-attend-workout-sources-say-20150415-story.html
  14. Might be a nice sleeper in return yardage leagues, especially dynasties or ones that draft early (before less attentive owners are thinking about the KR game, or see who is returning kicks during preseason). Arizona cut Ginn, and Brown was the primary KR backup last year (with plenty of college success/experience). Pretty sure he backs up Peterson for punts as well. Arians let Hilton do punts and some kick returns in Indy while he was OC there, so there's a precedent. The 3rd receiver slot + some KR duty could make Brown a pretty decent option in that format. I'd at least test the waters on him if the Cardinals don't appear to address their return game during the draft.
