  1. No, it definitely wasn't. Tongue in cheek comment in the tweet.
  2. I guess when he only got 10 carries in the freaking Super Bow l thought it might just be a harbinger of things to come. My bad. Again, what's the news? Anything new and verifiable about the knee?
  3. Oh damn! That totally changes every...nothing at all. What's the new info exactly? Do tell.
  4. Also, I don't know how to post them but just imagine a meme of Stanley Hudson saying DID I STUTTER???
  5. Are you going to actually offer anything after quoting 7 people, or just keep trolling? OH MY GOD. STOP THE PRESSES. GURLEYS KNEE IS A CONCERN. This does not qualify as breaking news. It's rehashing to the mainstream.
  6. Obviously I disagree. Complete reverse opposite, actually.
  7. Sign Schreff tomorrow. Today even. Back the truck up, dudes in his prime. I'm all for the importance of offensive line and resigning studs. Just not when they're 31. Sorry Trent. Hate to feel this way but we should move on or at the very least, not pull an Alex Smith here.
  8. You don't? I mean seriously, you don't? It's just media heads talking about what we already knew. If you or anyone else didn't realize in February that Gurley had a knee problem and was in for a sizeable reduction in workload I don't know what to tell you. The important question remains, which is how healthy is he with rest and how much of a workload reduction are we talking about. Did somebody answer those questions? Oh okay. Carry on then. Two huge prongs of evaluation here. How good is Henderson and to what extent will Gurley be able to ball. Neither have any semblance of an answer that wasn't present a month or three ago.
  9. Sigh. Trent turns 31 in a month and is always battling a nagging injury, or worse. What do you think the Patriots would do with him? Give him a raise/extension or trade him for picks? I love love love Trent. He's been a cold beast for most of a decade and punching Richard Sherman in the face gets you in my own personal ring of honor. But this team isn't close to contending and his (new) contract will be an albatross a year or two from now. He should be dealt to Houston or a similar type situation for picks.
  10. You know exactly what you were doing, and it certainly wasn't discussing anything.
  11. It's pretty hilarious you're taking victory laps based on...um...new information? No, that's not it. Performance on the field? Wrong again. Literally nothing has changed except now DH's value is up where it should have been all along, a mid first rounder along with several other prospects to choose from. Pretty arrogant to roll in here quoting a bunch of people, none of whom's arguments you seem to understand, when the landscape is exactly as it was a month ago. I feel exactly the same as I have from the start. He's an interesting player, a guy I like, who has some serious question marks but a lot of potential. Separately, anytime you go all in on a player in dynasty and take them above value, whether rookie pick or trade, you better be really really right. Just like when NFL teams trade up in the draft (yes, I see the irony, another reason why I liked him to begin with), you are exchanging several assets for a single one. There's not any room for error at that point. Sometimes you end up with Julio Jones, sometimes you end up with Sammy Watkins. Generally speaking, it's not a good practice.
  12. Agreed and good points about the offense being a limiting factor.
  13. DJ was my top WR in rookie drafts last year from early on and my interest has only increased. That said, I've found his market value is priced appropriately and he's a difficult guy to trade for. He's probably not going to be a big touchdown producer this year again and that's the one big knock I have on him. Think he's destined to be a 4-6 TD per year guy which obviously keeps his ceiling lower than that of a true WR 1. On the other hand, he contributes a lot in the rushing department and is a wizard after the catch, so maybe he can break some long ones to pad the TD total. I've found that you'll have to pay WR1 type prices to get him though and I'm not quite ready to do that. Rather wait and see if he starts the season slowly and try to pounce, or even buy high if he starts strong. The upside is already priced in so don't really see his price climbing too much. A reasonable expectation for this year seems like around 70/1,000/5 with some rushing stats on top. So maybe around 225 PPR points, which was in the Golladay neighborhood last year I believe. In other words, a solid WR2 year incoming.
  14. You've been bang on accurate in this thread and the comp to Dak is spot on. Hope the Cowboys throw that cash at him so badly.
  15. I think Kamara is going to be the fantasy regular season MVP (based on his first four games without Ingram last year) but his playoff schedule is pretty tough. Would be looking to sell before the deadline next year in redraft- should have zero problem doing so. Monster MONSTER year incoming.
  16. If they're going to try to turn him into a pocket passer, it's going to end really really badly. 2013 Redskins badly. They'd be wise to just let him be himself and play the position they way he knows how and let the chips fall. Sure, he could get injured, but at least you'll get productive seasons until it happens. Maybe start installing small pocket concepts one at a time and see how it goes. If I were a Ravens fan, I'd be super worried about an entire overhaul of the passing game which is what they seem to be hinting at.
  17. That's an important clarification. For me it's because I can't seem him ascending to WR1 status under the Patriots west scheme and tied to Stafford. Really do like his ability and tape though.
  18. I'd love to return the favor but since you outtalk everyone in each and every thread I can't as the conversation is impossible to follow. Determining which drafts to invest in is an important skill and this one ain't it. Even still I like Hockenson a lot, Jacobs, Sanders, Henderson to a much lesser degree.
  19. This is all true. Problem is a few people saw the two players in the same sentence and here we are.
  20. I tried adding Tevin + a 5th round pick in several offers to various teams for a late 3 early 4 in my draft a couple weeks ago, no dice.
  21. It is 100% acceleration. Going from zero to something, back to zero, back to something is acceleration and deceleration.
  22. I'm aware of the splits but the tape doesn't show the same thing and that's probably because it's rare for RBs to get in a track stance and start sprinting directly ahead unfettered in the football field. Once you add in change of direction and start/stop requirements, Kamara moves into elite territory by a landslide. I don't see that whatsoever form DH. There are a handful of 5-10 yard TDs from AK last year where he fits and starts and weasels through the LOS and gets himself so free that he literally walks in. Not from gaping holes, but from creation of separation. That's the kinda thing I'm talking about here. And the long list of highlights where he skips and slips and slithers his way through the 1st and 2nd level, all while stopping and starting, that's what Henderson can't do. That's not even to mention the A++ hands, route running, and flat out get open skills that AK has shown at the highest level that DH would be hard pressed to replicate at the pro level, particularly because he never really flashed them (again, at an elite trait level) in college. But long speed, sure, I think they're pretty close. Bet AK wins a footrace by a step but if you put em in a phone booth it's no contest.
  23. I hear ya but strongly disagree with the bolded. Long speed maybe equal, sure.
