By the end of the season, I wouldn't be at all surprised if Devin Singletary is the #1 RB in Buffalo (but splitting carries with McCoy and Gore(, and I think the odds are huge in his favor that he's the unquestioned #1 next year. 

He is getting a lot of run with the #1s already and a lot of praise for front office brass, coaches and teammates (as well as local sports media).

Some training camp reports mean more than others. KeeSean Johnson in Arizona and the Butler fellow in New Orleans, just my opinion carry more weight than Singletary getting work in Buffalo. Could very well be the case of McCoy and Gore, both over 30, needing rest more than practice reps. They know how to get themselves ready for real football and need no evaluation either.

As far as Singletary looking totally awesome, grain of salt perhaps. There are very few opinions of drafted rookies looking terrible, thus such reports have more meaning than the routine "rookie looks good".  While I'm about ready to give up on Rosen, I think it's a little early to move the needle on Singletary. I can't wait to watch him in pre-season though.

Agreed, it's still early. But certain situations and certain comments mean more than others. Brandon Beane talking about how Singletary's tape was the most exciting he watched carries weight. Josh Allen saying that Singletary understands how to read defenses and what spots to get to like a veteran carries weight. Singletary getting the 1st team reps versus Yeldon and Murphy getting none carries weight. And an aging McCoy and Gore with only 1 year contracts (and Yeldon with a 2 year easy to get out of one) carries weight.

There's certainly no guarantees, but I think the evidence is very very strong that the Bills' current plan/hope is for Singletary to become their #1 RB by next year.

Bills reporters like Joe Buscaglia and Matthew Fairburn don't typically sugarcoat things and I have yet to hear a negative thing about Singletary from them. So at the very least, we know that he hasn't fallen on his face or doesn't look like he is clearly lacking ability to succeed in the NFL (for comparison, they've been fairly quick to call out Cody Ford for getting beat by speed rushes by even a 7th round rookie, something that was a potential concern for him at OT).

Isabella has about a 5% chance of over taking Kirk at any point in his carear, he has a very limited route tree and got by in college on his speed

I thought this was a very odd statement, so I went and looked in the Isabella thread.  You are literally the only person who thinks that his route tree is limited, and there are plenty of posters who I respect, along with plenty of scouting reports that say otherwise.

My buddy went to Cards camp last week and said Isabella was juking DB’s so hard they were falling down, getting up and throwing their hands in the air. Just one data point, but he’s looking like he belongs, at least for now.

Imo the only deal you won here is the one where you bought Boyd. Where you sold I think you lost. But who knows. 

Yeah I hear you. In the two I sold him I was elite at WR and may never start him. The one I bought him I am in dire need of WR. So yes perhaps in terms of raw value I could have done better where I sold, but in one league I cleared vital roster space, which is hard to quantify.

They'll keep running the ball and spreading the wealth.  Between injuries and what have you, I fear he's doomed to be an 850 and 5 TD guy the rest of his career.

Where do people put the value of Henderson and Corey Davis this year?

I was offered verbally Henderson for Davis + "I think I'd need a little more." We never got into what more he would need because I immediately shot that down. 

Maybe I'm higher on Dsvis than some. Everyone knows I do like Henderson (although after week 1 preseason I'm glad he declined my counter of Davis and Carson for Guice and Henderson)

Just trying to grt a feel where people see Davis this year. Make or break season for Mariota, and maybe Davis gets 1 more year as a pass if TEN moves onto another qb in 2020. Personally I see him as a 3rd year breakout candidate.

I don't even know what team Corey Davis plays for. Is it Tennesee? If so, I'm going to continue not knowing who he is. Love Henderson though, think he can average 5-6 catches a game. No problem throwing him out in the FLEX as early as Week 1.

Think he's gonna score a lot of 4th Quarter touchdowns when the game is out of reach.

Henderson with between 80-96 catches?  Umm, yeah, not even a remote possibility unless Gurley is out for the year.  Even then, highly unlikely.

ARob may only have that, but IMO that would be Trubisky failing to develop more than on Robinson. 

2nd year removed from the ACL & 2nd year in that offense he could easily be more of a 1000+/8 guy. But IMO that is 100% on the QB. It was Trubisky’s shortcomings that washed the Bears out of the playoffs IIRC. 

We’ll see what happens, but it feels a bit like recency bias with AR-15 at this point. He’s a talented receiver - I think he’s going to be the steal of a lot of drafts, and still a solid dynasty buy.

If Trubisky was better the K wouldn’t have mattered. 

He didn't exactly light up the scoreboard the game before that. 103 yards and shoulda been picked on 3 easy ducks.

cmon. they were lucky to even advance to the game that the K mattered after that.

Their best playmaker got the ball 4 times. That's on the coach. I agree Robinson's fate is tied to Trubisky's development though.

The Bears only played in one playoff game - they had a bye. Trubisky threw for 303 yards and a TD in the game they lost when the kicker missed the easy FG that would have won the game.

They didn't have a bye it was the wild card round. But it was the only playoff game and Trubisky did just what you said. But as a Bears fan I didn't give a #### about the kicker. I was furious at the coach for only getting Cohen 4 touches. It was the biggest difference in the game to me.

If I was offered Metcalf for my Hilton I’d reject without counter.  If I was offered Hilton for my Metcalf I’d break my mouse accepting.

Full disclosure, I’m on record here as saying Hilton is criminally undervalued, and I’m far from sold on Metcalf yet.  For me, maybe Metcalf+1st gets Hilton.

Things TY Hilton has going against him:

He's about to hit 30 years old

He'll make $15 million next year with $0 dead cap hit if he were to be cut

The Colts invested a high draft pick in a wide receiver that may well be able to replace his role in the offense

---

Things TY Hilton has going for him:

He plays with Andrew Luck

He's still a productive player

---

I think he's a player that, if anything goes wrong / not in his favor (i.e. injury, Campbell playing well, cap issues, etc) then he has the potential to lose a lot of value come next year.

There isn’t a chance in hell that Hilton is gone from the Colts next year. He has continued to play at a high level and has a skill set that can easily transition to him being a slot/possession receiver (a role he sometimes plays already). He has at least another year with the team after this one, maybe as many as three but I would bet on one for sure. That said, Hilton is probably approaching the value cliff, the point where he becomes worth far more to the owner due to his immediate points impact rather than long term value. Basically, how Green was getting devalued before his latest injury.

I am very high on Metcalf and think he could be something special but that is a chance whereas Hilton is a known talent and a good one. I would break my finger hitting accept on getting Hilton for Metcalf.

This. Robinson was on pace for 928/5 last year and he was playing hurt most of the time, so 850/5 seems really low. I'm grabbing him in redrafts and sending out offers in dynasty. 1400/14 won't happen again, but 1200/8 is within grasp this year IF he can stay healthy and Trubisky has just an incremental improvement from year 2.

RE: Hilton vs. Metcalf, any time you're dealing with prospects vs. aging players you have to weigh the shorter shelf life vs. the probability of busting. Only a fraction of draft picks hit, so maybe the EV favors the Hilton side unless you're certain Metcalf is for real. I don't like to trade for old players, but a good old player is more valuable than a bad young player, so it really just hinges on your assessment of Metcalf. Hilton likely has 2-3 years of solid production left, with a reasonable chance for more. That may be more than you get from Metcalf's entire career. Then again, if Metcalf hits then he's far more valuable.

As for A-Rob, he's flipped from being overrated last year to underrated this year. His production wasn't that bad last season when you consider he had a young QB, was on a new team, and wasn't targeted all that much. Modest improvements in QB play, efficiency, and targets will make him a startable FF player again. I wouldn't want to go into this season counting on him to produce, but if you can get him as a WR3-WR4 then the cost vs. value equation starts to look pretty good. I would say he's comfortably the best receiver on the Bears and by default that should lead to opportunities and production.

The only way anyone is going Gordon in this one is if they don’t know Zeke’s stats or if they very strongly believe Zeke is an off field knuckle head. But it should be Zeke. His per game average in the regular season is 101/30 with .85 TDs which means that his average 16 game pace is 2k yds from scrimmage and 13+ TDs.

Maybe Jerry Jones needs to refresh himself on the stats because he seems to have forgotten how valuable Zeke is to that team

Nobody is the least bit concerned that a former QB is now the OC with play calling duties for the Cowboys?  Nobody bakes in the likely 6 games or more suspension if 1 more thing happens to Zeke?  

I get it from a production or age standpoint that Zeke is definitely better, but I would also assume they are close since Melvin has multiple top10 finishes himself.

Kellen Moore as the OC concerns me for Dak and Cooper. I'm not saying he's going to be bad as an OC but he is a first time OC if nothing else. Gordon has multiple top 10 finishes, Zeke is top 5 ppg in all 3 of his seasons. Zeke is an order of magnitude better than Gordon.

The suspension thing factors in when we are talking apples to apples. If you asked me to pick Barkley or Zeke, I take Barkley because they are so close that the suspension risk factors in. That's the only guy in the same tier in my book. Zeke hasn't had any rough behavior since his rookie year

How real do we think the Breida hype is? He looked great last year and McKinnon isn't right. I have the opportunity to flip him for Hines, which would have been a no-brainer a month ago, but that almost feels low upside if he stays healthy.

That's lateral, if not a downgrade IMO.  Hines is now nothing more than Theo Riddick was or a poor man's Cohen.  His catches will go down so will his usage with all the WR's there taking the shorter stuff away from him.  I'd much rather have Breida and the chance for him to own that backfield.

His highlights occurred during the 3rd quarter of the 1st preseason game.  :lmao:

That's one way to look at it.


Another way is that he was the 36th pick in the draft (pretty high), had a good career at South Carolina, and runs in the 4.48x range at a compact 214 pounds. What he's showing in the preseason and practices is just an extension of a pattern that stretches back years. Moreover, that these flashes of athletic talent were shown against scrubs doesn't necessarily diminish the existence of the underlying tools. For example, just because Tyreek Hill was playing against amateurs in college doesn't mean he wasn't actually fast. In other words, the tools on display are real, even if the competition is not. Also, any time you are projecting an unproven prospect to the next level, it's understood that the level of competition will be higher. That said, even "scrubs" playing in the 3rd quarter of a preseason game are better than the average SEC player.

Ehhh.  I think he’s ok.  Don’t think he’ll ever be a #1.  He hasn’t flashed enough to separate from a pretty mediocre group of WRs in Niners camp.  I could see a solid career, but I think 70-900-6 is going to be about the norm if he pans out.  I’m going to be floored if he’s ever commanding “huge” dynasty prices.  Seems like a dime a dozen receiver IMO.  But preach on brother!!
