LOL I can understand that concern.

Offer him something else on top of it so they can't complain about it. Really when you have a team like this in the league everyone should be trying to trade with the guy. If you don't take the sweet deals someone else will.

I remember a guy like this who was changing his team constantly with trades. Just could not stick with anything. He told me he doesn't feel confident in his rookie player evaluations, so I traded for all his picks and stop worrying about the vultures dining on his team.

Start one QB league, 12 team TE premium

Team A has Baker, Dak at qb, Gurley, Fournette, Barkley at RB

Team B is offering Dalvin Cook straight up for Baker......

 

Thoughts?

Guess I'm in the minority.  I'd rather have Baker than Cook.  I'd be trading Dak away if I were Team A.

This is true.

 

Pwingles went back to back, same guy trying to move Cook sent him what would end up being the 1.01 (Saquan) when he already had the best team by a large margin.

23 year old possible RB1 for a QB.... I can't believe it we're discussing it. You have to be really low on Cook to even consider this.

Best Dalvin Cook will ever be is Gerald Riggs/Neal Anderson..if Dalvin Cook didn't break out his 2nd yr. I give Cook 3 yrs of production.

The fact that Dalvin Cook's Attempts per game dropped from 18 to 12 from yr 1 to yr 2 is a major red flag.

He tore his ACL during his rookie season. The first year back is generally a bit of a down year.

I would feel better if he was signed to a team and he was expected to be recovered before week 1. Now would be the time to buy low if you like him. If you are a seller I'd hold for now.

These facts help explain why you're low on Cook. Some people look for context to go with them there facts, which you might call hype. Somebody wanting to sell Cook should try to cash in on it instead of paying for the Mayfield hype.

For real though, why is everyone so low on Ajayi? He tore the ACL on the other knee. There will be an opportunity for him eventually.

I'm not understanding the logic he's a has-been at 25.

Because he's damaged goods that last did something in the 2nd half of the 2016 season and hasn't been signed a couple weeks into free agency. It's over.

I really like Jay Ajayi but the fact that he is not signed and it being uncertain when he can play I would not be pursuing him.

I would still keep him or even draft him late though just to see what happens. He certainly is capable of being a good starter if healthy.

He's basically the same age as Crowell, similar style of play, but less durable.

Hah. My point was that neither of them have much value at this point. If someone values one much higher then the other, it might be time to re-evaluate why.

I think NFL teams may be wising up the dinosaur that is the two down back in today’s NFL.  They’re likely realizing that they don’t have to drop $2-3MM per year for one of these veteran guys (Ajayi, Crowell and even the Bears apparent willingness to trade Howard as his contract is about to expire), when they can just draft one in the 4th-6th rounds and move on from them in four years.

I think people are just being impatient in assuming they're done because they havent been signed. Ajayi's case is a bit different. Recovering from a repaired ligament has a lot to do with his unemployment. Any team would rather get a rb in the draft if they can. No point to losing a roster spot by paying Ajayi to rehab. 

When injuries mount, or team doesnt get the back they want, or the back they wanted wasn't as good as they thought, somebody will sign him.

Are you asking if he's worth a FFB roster spot you're pretty much answering your own question. Guys that only get signed when other guys are unavailable or underperform are waiver wire guys themselves.

I think that's overstating things a bit. The hit rate is still quite low in rounds 4-6. I'm also hesitant to label everybody who happens to play alongside a 3rd down specialist as a two down back. Plenty of players have shown ability in the receiving game when given a chance (Crowell caught 40 passes in 2016 on 53 targets). So it's not always that the player in the early down role is a dinosaur, it could easily just be that a team prefers to split the workload that way. 

That being said, NFL teams have definitely wised up to the fact that they don't need to spend a lot of money or draft capital on RBs anymore. I'm not sure, but it seems scat backs/3rd down specialists are even easier to find late than good early down backs. There are more Lindsay/Riddick types than there are Jordan Howards.

Nobody is saying he's absolutely toast in the league, but fantasy football is a probability game and given what we've seen, his stock is circling the drain. I would pay very, very little for him in a trade. At best he's 2nd in line for carries to start the season (realistically - could be another Guice-type of preseason injury, but obviously unlikely). Nobody is trading anything valuable for backups at this point in the offseason.

Maybe. If you're dropping him so you have a roster spot for your 4th rookie round pick, I'll just take my chances on Ajayi.

I get it. I'm not trying to trade the guy.

I dont even have a problem with his value given his medical history. Only that people think he's toast. Not that it really matters. But the talent he had at 22 didnt suddenly disappear by 25 just because he has bad knees.

What about Gurley too? Despite arthritis he is still a top 10 dynasty asset. Its hypocritical and it hurts my feelings a little. Man enough to admit it.

Gurley's value has dipped slightly since that news, but he still as two back to back top-3 RB  finishes on his resume and is locked up with a massive deal on one of the best offenses in the league for the next four seasons.

I personally would be selling Gurley as quickly as possible. As I understand it from a few things I've seen from Doctor's is that there isn't much they can do but manage pain for arthritis, it is degenerative, and this arthritis is a direct result of his knee surgery. It is the reason you heard the Rams mention stem cell therapy because there isn't really any established medicine that can help him, main thing the knee needs is rest. So while his talent isn't gone, his workhorse/overuse days certainly are and going forward you have a committee back with a shorter career. Anyone taking him in the top 10 is incorrect in my book, he won't be on my 2019 teams

Right. Its concerning to me he couldnt play the end of the season, not even in the SB, but never got injured. It was just a flare up or whatever.

How are we feeling about Sterling Shepard?

Just grabbed him in a superflex startup in the 11th as our wr 5. Seemed a little late for me for him to be there. We passed on him 2 x because of players still on the board and we have Engram. But I couldnt do it again. Is he falling for a reason I am unaware of?

I personally like him as a player. Coincidentally I think he should have been putting up Golden Tate numbers. But since he's stuck in that offense, I've been trying to offload him for any 2nd round dynasty pick but there have been no takers. If all I can get is a 3rd or lower, I'll keep him in hopes he finds his way off the Giants roster.

So for most people its probably a perception of the possible offense and not really him specifically? I am fine with the risk I think. If the QB situation suddenly changes his value will go up. If he ends up on another team next season, or a revamped giants squad his value shouldnt go down I wouldnt think.

He did well in OBJ's absence a couple years ago, but won't thrive in that system with two other guys basically playing the same role.  Could be a cheap stash, but I don't know that I want to hold that ticket.

I like him based on (1) price, (2) opportunity, and (3) what we've seen on the field. If he plays 16 games, I expect something in the ballpark of 80/1100. Eli still sucks, but the OL has improved and this is Shurmur's second season. OBJ just vacated a ton of targets. Kind of the perfect storm for him entering the final year of his contract. If he clicks in this offense, he probably gets extended. If he's not happy, he gets a chance to move on.

If I needed WR help and had a mid-to-late 2nd, he's definitely a guy I'd target. I can't remember the last time I did a snake startup, so positionally where did he go in your draft? He should be going around WR40. If you got him as your WR5, that's some nice depth at excellent value.

Probably not. On a ppg basis, that's most likely outside the top 20, depending on TDs.

Looking at points per game, Tyler Boyd finished WR20, but he only played 14 games. Project that out to 16 games and his numbers would've been 87/1175/8. So something like 80/1100 would probably yield high end WR3 numbers and maybe squeak into low-end WR2. But again, it depends on TDs. Eli doesn't throw a lot, so I would not feel comfortable projecting him above 6. 

Last season, Shepard had 107 targets for 180.5 points, or 1.7 points per target which yielded 11.3 ppg for WR42. With the absence of OBJ, if he gets 130 at that rate (less than 20% of OBJ's vacated targets), it would put him at 13.7 ppg which would've been WR27 last year (WR24 was 13.8 ppg). This math indicates the rough estimate of 80/1100 is reasonable, unless you expect him to get a smaller share of the 124 targets that went to OBJ last year or if you expect the Giants to pass less than they did last year.

Well, first of all I didn't know Shepard was targeted over 100 times last season, so I was off on my estimate.  You're probably closer to right than I gave you credit for.

I do however expect the Giants to do whatever they can to not pass this season.  All their moves seem to indicate they plan to live and die by Barkley.
