  1. 12 team SF PPR Gave Cooks, Sternberger, Graham Got Hockenson, 22 3rd Like Cooks more in the short term (he could be a WR1) but he’s one hit away from Jordan Reed relevance level, no points and no value. Hock has 1st round capital behind him and with Golladay banged up, thought it was a decent hedge
  2. 12 team SF PPR I gave Justin Herbert, Tyrod Taylor, and 2021 3rd I got Kerryon Johnson and Gardner Minshew I love Minshew, think he's underrated. I do recognize the "1 minute until midnight" doomsday clock he's staring at with the Jags looking like a tank job but still think he's a very good QB talent. As for Kerryon, I have Swift. I probably lose that trade in short term value and could really lose long term with the wrong shake but I thought the risk was outweighed by the points now on a win now team
  3. I do think it’s crazy to project CEH as anything other than the 1A at this point. He is a 1st round RB drafted by the defending champions in a championship/dynasty type window. He was a luxury pick to put them over the top and it would be insane not so use him. I imagine that they had hoped to use him similar to how Alvin Kamara was used in his rookie season but circumstances won’t allow that. If he is the starter, he will get a minimum of 60% of the carries and receptions out of that backfield until he is consistently worse than someone else there or let’s Mahomes get lit up too many times. The former, no one should be worried about. The latter, yes a major concern but it comes with rookie territory. Reid likes to have a primary ball carrier, has since he came to KC. If CEH is the best player there (and we all think he is), then that will be him. That makes him a top 12 guy and probably top 6 when it’s all said and done
  4. Fair enough but I do think we see Bell scratched at some point this year because equal parts of poor play (that may not be entirely his fault) and personal feud with Gase
  5. To those who think the money is going to guarantee Bell playing time, I’d think twice. Gase has never been on board with Bell and Bell clearly buys the public perception that Gase is a garbage coach (he is). They don’t get along and Gase is probably coaching for his job this year. Nobody is safe on that team and Bell with all the bad blood. I could see him splitting time as soon as week 3 if the team struggles (which they will) and possibly getting healthy scratched if he and Gase get into it over that.
  6. Strongly considering him over Cook at 1.04 in a keeper depleted draft. Cook has RB1 overall potential but with his injury history, I'm thinking I'd rather have a safer mid to late RB1 in CEH.
  7. He's the incumbent so it makes sense on day 1. Darwin Thompson is also there but he got less work last year. I'd actually put my money on Deandre Washington being the back up by the end of camp though. He's a vet, has had some decent NFL moments and has a familiarity with Mahomes as they played together in college.
  8. Not in pads for the 1st padded practice. Strap yourselves in, Boyd season is coming
  9. I don’t mind the pick but taking into account the rest of our offseason, the rest of the league would like to know how the view is from up our own asses
  10. PFF is just another piece of the puzzle, same as any other ranking system. The fact that they try to look at things in a vacuum and look at so many finer points means that maybe they have more pieces of the puzzle that others. But those pieces aren’t always corner or edge pieces that shape the picture, sometimes (often times in my opinion), they are simply part of the larger whole. Personally, I find their fine detail data points to be more thought provoking and worthy of my notice than overall rankings. As an example with made up stats, don’t tell me Joe Mixon was a top 5 grades back on the season, that does nothing for me because I don’t know/care for how they weight different stats. Now tell me he was 3rd in missed tackles and 1st in broken tackles, you have my attention. PFF is generally data without context. That can be useful in its own way but as with box scores, data without context can only tell us so much. As for the self love PFF and those who peddle it have, every single person thinks their way is the best way. Every ranking site thinks they have the best system and the best data points to measure by. You can’t sell your product if you don’t believe in it.
  11. Well PJ Walker is signing with the Panthers. I'd say he has a very good chance to win the back up job and actually may have an opportunity to battle to be a starter. I don't anticipate things breaking his way there, I think Teddy will be fine and he's getting paid well to be there, but it wasn't the worst situation to land in. In Seattle, he would've been a back up only, in Carolina there is a shot to win the job outright or keep it after performing well following an injury. Still was wishing for somewhere like Chicago or NE with a much more open competition but this may be good for his long term career too.
  12. No offense but this is the take of someone checking highlights and box scores. I’ve lived in the Tampa area since Winston was drafted and watch all their games, Winston is trash. He has the raw physical ability that most crumby back ups don’t, that’s why he looks good at times. But his mental process and ability to run an offense are garbage tier. When you factor him into your game plan to win, he is in the negative column every time. He will be lucky to carve out a career similar to Fitzpatrick, an over capable back up (sometimes starter) who was incapable of developing the mental tools and decision making to succeed long term at the NFL level. I would not want that for the Bears. At least Foles has had success, I hate the trade for him but you can’t take away Big Dick Nick’s track record in the post season
  13. gosh darn this team for giving me 1 year of hope. EDIT: I’d like to thank the forum filters for making sound like Ned Flanders
  14. As a Bears fan who has lived in Tampa since Jameis was drafted, I ask you if you really want the Bears to have Jay Cutler 2.0? Jameis may throw for More if everything than Jay but I’ll tell you the one thing he does exactly the same: he finds ways for his team to lose the game. This would be a disaster. I’d rather roll another year with Trubisky. It’s Dalton or bust now
  15. Yes but one of the major concerns is that we don’t have vaccination against this yet so while it’s not as deadly, we can do nothing to curb the spread of it other than quarantine. It will spread nationwide without strong measures taken and may do that even with those measures. I do agree though that a lot of the “hysteria” stems from the alarm causes by things like the NBA suspension. What the general public isn’t getting about those types of acts is that there is a liability component. When there is a pandemic, you don’t want to be responsible for holding an event with 40,00 attendees in close quarters. This is a serious issue with serious measures needed. But no, we aren’t all going to die. Take it seriously, do the things you need to do to stay safe and try to get through the next two months while the gov tries to seize control of this thing Edit: I do think the draft as an event is in jeopardy though. The season and training camp starts, probably not as much
