  1. Funny thing is, I can't help but keep thinking that had he transitioned to the WR position, the NFL would be drooling over a 6'2" 225 athletic build WR. And I wonder if this may not happen at some time... call it a Reverse Ty Montgomery. Or he could turn out to be David Boston. Still, even he had a one very good year.
  2. There are definitely things in his film that give you pause. His upright running style. His lack of desire to initiate contact. That being said, it he was just a workout warrior, my expectations would be tempered. But I was very excited by what I saw at the Senior Bowl. In my estimation, in what round he gets drafted (if he gets drafted) will be most telling. It's the clearest indication to what the real NFL thinks of a player. If he's drafted in the 3rd round or higher. That'll mean that the NFL thinks that he can make an impact. If it's 4th or 5th, I'll temper a bit, but given the depth of this class, I don't think being drafted in these lower rounds is that much of a knock. 6th or 7th would disappoint me. UDFA would make me a sad panda. Last year, I really felt that Ishmael Zamora could be an NFL ready receiver (as did Reception Perception) , but went UDFA and never made a team.
  3. Starting the way too early Hype Train. But there is so much "potential" to like and could be a steal later in a rookie draft or redraft. NFL combination of size and speed with receiving skills 6'3, 229 with a reported 4.46 40 yard Big con on him was a too upright running style and not using his size to break tackles. Looked good at Senior Bowl, though, learning to run much lower. Also, just was not used properly at ASU. http://www.nfl.com/videos/nfl-draft/0ap3000000911381/Kalen-Ballage-bowls-over-defender-to-convert-on-fourth-and-short https://247sports.com/college/arizona-state/Board/102980/Contents/Kalen-Ballage-Freed-From-Arizona-States-System-Senior-Bowl-114102839 https://zonecoverage.com/2018/featured/senior-bowl-interview-with-rb-kalen-ballage-arizona-state/
  4. Thanks Sig! My opinion is that none of these WRs are #1's regardless of landing spot. I don't think anyone should be expecting more than supplementing their current WR corp on their dynasty team with these guys. I don't see anyone of them becoming a top 10 finisher in their career, except for maybe Washington.
  5. Thanks Joe! I'm one of those always complaining..er... suggesting.. for more and earlier dynasty content. I really like to get to know and understand which rookies I should be keeping my eye on at the Combine and than at the Draft. And it's also good to get conversations going on why some folks like some players and other's don't. I think, in particular this class, is going to be very divisive in evaluations after Barkley. For example, Simmie Cobb over Christian Kirk? Uh, no. And I'm the lead engineer on the Kalen Ballage hype train and Sig has him listed way too low. Choo-Choo!
  6. 1st time ever for the Brewcity Bombers in the 250. In fact, don't think I've ever made it past Week 10 in all the years playing this. Not unique enough lineup to pull this off. seems like there's always 2 or 3 players that go off each of the last 3 weeks to propel the winner. And i don't see anyone on my roster doing that. It's exciting still, though! Good luck to all still left.
  7. I think Julio J would be your safest bet there at #4. Maybe mix things up and take Gronk at #21 or Demarco Murray, or Gurley if he falls. Then swing around and take D Thomas, D Hopkins or T Pryor.
  8. McCoy way up, think he becomes even more involved in the passing game. How far does Zeke fall? 6 zeros is pretty hard to take, even if it means having RB #1 overall down the stretch. If you take him higher than the 3rd round, it means you really believe that you can draft around that.
  9. Rookie Rankings Just after April draft and revisited in August. ( I have leagues that do rookie only drafts just after the NFL draft, and Rookie, Free Agent drafts just before start of regular season.) I'd like to see break down by Overall and then position. http://www.dynastynerds.com/fantasy-football-dynasty-rankings/rankings/?position=0&age=1 This should be very popular. If not, then you're doing Dynasty wrong. Rookie Player Breakdowns Breakdowns on top rookies as to why the article writer thinks the player will or will not succeed as a fantasy player. (I greatly appreciate when a writer points out that a player looks like they will have NFL impact but not in fantasy. ) From Combine and onwards to late August, early September http://dynastyfootballwarehouse.com/2017-rookie-profile-wr-john-ross/ I would think this should be popular for anyone looking to build their own rankings. Overall Top Dynasty 150 Ranking of the Top 150 players in NFL from a dynasty perspective. Year round I would think this would be popular for dynasty start up leagues and anyone looking to make a trade. Rookie Mock Drafts (3 round) Try to get a feel for ADP on rookies. Helpful to know current popularity of players. From April to early September Dynasty leagues with Rookie only drafts would find this useful. ADP Variation Risers and Fallers. Helpful to know if a player is getting hot or not. Both Draft and Startup leagues would find this useful. PODCASTS, PODCASTS, PODCASTS l love listening to podcasts. Year round

  11. I miss David Wilson. I think he had great potential. While it may have been a blessing that Coughlin benched him as often as he did, I still can't forgive him for holding down such a talented player just because of a few fumbles.

  13. Any NE WR has to pan out at some point, right?? For a whole season?? At some point, some WR has to go 1,200 - 7+TD? Don't they?
  14. If anything , this is a good thing. He will come back healthy for training camp. I see him as a top 12 WR with a healthy Luck. Maybe, it's the White Russians talking, however I really see him dominating in the AFC South. While the division's Defenses should be better then last year, the secondary's are still suspect. I just really like his size and I see Hilton and Dorsett helping him to get more open.
  15. Are folks still high on Kelvin Benjamin? I have big concerns with him - especially with the stories from last year of him showing up at OTA and Camp overweight. Have him on my dynasty team and have been entertaining thoughts of trying to trade him. But if he is still top 20 and WR1, then I'll hold on to him.
