  1. Well, that's why Ertz has huge upside. IF he can get on the field more, he could be a monster. His receiving ability is not in question. It's just opportunity.This seems like the best backfield Chip has ever had and he'll finally be able to run as often as he's wanted. I think the opportunity for Ertz is actually less than last year. Well, the difference should be his improved blocking skills. I sure hope so, anyway.
  2. I understand the concerns with Bradford staying healthy - but as far as production goes, if he's on the field he'll be a weekly Top-8 QB. Since Chip has taken over, every starting QB has been a quality fantasy option, even the Sanchise. Love him as a #2 QB with huge upside this year.
  3. I must be missing something here...why would a coach have to be in great shape again?
  4. So funny how many people still think Chip is clueless...there were a lot of those when he left Oregon, too. Has he been perfect every step of the way? No. But he turned a 4-12 team into two 10-6 teams, while fielding the #2 offense in the NFL over the last 2 seasons behind only the Broncos. Trying to act like he is "clueless" is simply being ignorant of the facts. Despite all the shocking moves, I think we are looking at a better team than what we went into last season with. And hopefully some potential starters on D to come between tonight and tomorrow.
  5. Let's not forget - Gurley will have 6 games per year playing against the Arizona, Seattle, and San Fran run defenses.
  6. I generally try and stay away from WRs like Wallace, DJax, and VJax because of consistency. Yes, at the end of the year their stats will look good. But when you look at fantasy points on a game-by-game basis, it's something like 2, 22, 4, 16, 21, 3, 3 Too volatile for me as a high draft pick. Give me the consistent guy.
  7. Can you imagine if you worked in management for the Bills? Trading away 3 #1 Draft Picks to move up a few spots to grab Watkins, instead of having to settle for Mike Evans or god forbid, Odell Beckham.
  8. Yep, I cut him last night as EVERY piece of news said he was most likely done for the year. Uggh.
  9. I like Kelce and all, but no need to get crazy. If anything, hope he has a great game and maybe you can deal him before your trade deadline. Trade deadline is tomorrow, bro. While there's only a couple VOLUME + TD elite TEs, there are plenty of VOLUME (Olsen, Black Unicorn) or TD (Julius, Gates, Allen) TEs. That's two-thirds of the league. What does Kelce offer that differentiates him from a FF perspective? He's low volume and has, what, 5 4 TDs? Nice but nothing to pay a premium to acquire. Tough finding a trade partner to move Travis. Dude is a great athlete and has tremendous upside. But this year he was late round flyer who turned into a low end TE1. What can you get for that? Somebody who will function as your RB/WR 4? I'd rather hold as my expensive insurance policy to JT. Depth doesn't win championships, but I've had a hard time moving Kelce despite sending out many offers. Was just a suggestion, as personally I wouldn't start anyone over Thomas not names Graham or Gronk. I have Kelce also in a league that I own Graham, so he is wasting away on my bench as well. I figure at the very least if he does blow up, I'm not gonna be playing against him come playoff time.
  10. I like Kelce and all, but no need to get crazy. If anything, hope he has a great game and maybe you can deal him before your trade deadline.
  11. I would be really surprised to find out Belicheck cares in the slightest about getting Gronk a TD instead of someone else or getting to 100 yards - I mean unless maybe he has him on his fantasy team. I think he just wants to win and doesn't care how it gets done, there's a reason the Pats are always at the top of the standings....
  12. This is my first year ever having Gronk, and man is it paying dividends. I play in a keeper league that keeps 2 Veterans and 1 Rookie each year. Came into the season with Brees, Graham, and Le'Veon. Drafted Gronk with my 1st pick, 9th out of 10. Gonna be some tough decisions to make come next August... I got my fiance to draft Gronk with the last pick in the 3rd in a 12-team PPR league. As she likes to say, GRONK EATS PEOPLE
  13. Funny, I happened to grab Big Ben last Sunday morning before his big game; I have Brady on the bye this week and loved Ben's matchup with the Jets. Now maybe I'll be able to get something for him in trade, though I have no clue how much people would be willing to give up after the last 2 weeks.
  14. I own Gordon and can't wait to start him week 12, but this is a stretch imo unless you're playing in a 2-QB or 16 team league.
  15. Man, if Jimmy can just get back to full health my evil plan to dominate my league with Gronk and Graham on the same team might actually come to fruition. Played Jimmy last week as well as last night.
  16. That's the way I look at it. I've had him for 4 season in a keeper league and last week was the first time he didn't produce anything when playing with an injury. I got crap on another forum for saying people should start him last week but as I told them, I'd do the same today if I had the same information I did on Sunday. In the process of making a trade to get Graham in my other league, most likely giving Vereen and Cameron for him. Buy low sell high and all that good stuff
  17. Surprised as anyone that he may play this week. Glad it looks like he won't be out for a few more weeks, but I'm not thrilled they may rush him back. I'd rather they let him fully heal first. I feel like they rushed him last year with his foot thing and he ended up playing at far less than 100% for most of the season. That said, if Jimmy plays he's in my starting lineup. This is my 4th year of owning him and trust me, even in a limited capacity he's well-worth the start. Last year I remember his first week back from injury he only played on like 20 snaps or something when they were in the red zone. He had like 3 catches for 15 yards....and 2 TDs.
  18. Kicking butt on my bench! Whatever, happy they've decided to basically make him a bellcow #1 RB... this week.
  19. Gotta hope they stay in the playoff hunt though. if they have a losing streak, by the time Gordon is available, Manzier may have already neutralized him. I don't know, didn't Johnny Football pretty much make his college career on throwing up bombs to Mike Evans? No way I'd let go of Gordon, though in that league we have larger benches than most. Surprisingly, with Andre Johnson, Keenan Allen, and Percy Harvin, my WRs are holding my team back. Week 12 can't get here soon enough. I'll start him in his 1st game without thinking twice.
  20. Great post. As a Penn State fan who watched every minute he played in college, I completely agree. Happy with Jordan Matthews, but I wanted my Eagles to draft Robinson. Guy came out of nowhere to lead the Big10 in receiving 2 years in a row. He had over 1,400 yards and 97 catches in COLLEGE last year, and would still be a senior this year if he didn't leave for the NFL. He may not be the fastest guy, but he can beat people in space and above all is RELIABLE. If Penn State was down and needed to throw a lot, they could throw it to him almost every time, and he'd always make the play. I realize I'm a biased homer, but I think he's gonna be the real deal.
  21. So bitter I could've picked this kid up a few weeks and instead got enamored with Jordan Matthews. (Eagles fan here) Just didn't have the patience... This may have been discussed, but is AP expected back in Minn next year? I'm in a league that keeps 2 Vets and 1 Rookie each season so having a stud rookie RB can be huge. (My rookie keeper from last year is Le'Veon In this league I start 2 RBs and have Bell, Gore, and Jeremy Hill so I'm more interested in what his prospects are for 2015 and beyond.
  22. So I'm in a keeper league (not dynasty), but we keep 2 Vets and 1 Rookie each year. Already have Brandin Cooks, so I am considering dropping Jordan Matthews for McKinnon. I have the last shot at waivers this week but I think unless they announce a suspension for AP tonight I should be able to get him. Seems weird to me how silent the NFL has been on AP thus far, and with the Governor of Minn calling out the Vikings among others, I think there's a good chance he ends up missing a bunch of games/ rest of the season. So, is he worth the stash? Wouldn't be getting him for immediate help of course, more the possibility of helping later in the year or possibly next season. Thanks!
  23. As someone who had Bell last year and is using him as my rookie keeper, the Blount news doesn't really bother me. One of the best things about Bell is his consistency, and I think when you include receptions he is going to get a ton of touches again. While Bell certainly didn't set the world on fire last year, he was pretty much a lock for at the least 80-100 total yards per game. With all the RBBC's these days, that kind of consistency is rare.
