  1. Great stuff from Baldy this week... https://twitter.com/BaldyNFL/status/1438517193587630088?s=20 https://twitter.com/BaldyNFL/status/1438514985018089474?s=20 https://twitter.com/BaldyNFL/status/1438518508384448517?s=20 https://twitter.com/BaldyNFL/status/1438521016192434183?s=20
  2. Interested to see how Big Dan Moore holds up in his first game. Rookie 4th rounders aren't supposed to start, especially at a key position like LT for Steelers. He impressed in the preseason games hopefully he's an anchor there for the next decade.
  3. I may be in the minority but I'd take Claypool over Diontae all day in dynasty. May not get as many targets as Diontae but more likely to give you 16 games and big plays.
  4. Maybe the Steelers haven't hired an OC yet because they are still figuring out their QB situation? Going to be a fun offseason!
  5. Yeah I don't see the Steelers paying the price to trade up to top 10 to get their future QB. Unfortunately. It sounds like the general assumption is that they will bring Ben back. So he and Rudolph are likely on their last year with team. If that's the case do they wait until 2022 to address QB or try to move up to get a guy like Mac Jones who may be around at 15-20? Or possibly trade a high pick for Sam Darnold and unload Rudolph for a late pick? I'm hoping they don't just band-aid QB in 2021 and they address the position for short and long-term.
  6. Couple thoughts... Of all the possible wildcard match-ups CLE was best for Steelers. If they can load up on Chubb I don't see Mayfield making enough plays to beat them. Alex Highsmith was all over the field yesterday. Nice performance against Jedrick Wills. Impressive work by Colbert & co to find 3 high impact rookies after the first round on a division winning team.
  7. Claypool had 10 targets and 2 TD against Cincy 5 weeks ago. May not be a top 20 WR but gotta play him unless you have great options.
  8. Sounds like the Ravens are still popping up with new positive tests. Assume the NFL is hoping this stabilizes before they travel Saturday. Steelers lose their mini-bye, not going to be happy. But commish had to do it.
  9. If/when McFarland gets healthy like to see what he can do with 10-15 touches per game. Conner looks shot.
  10. Steelers WR - week 9 target share *claypool: 29.9% *diontae: 22.2% *juju: 15.6% *washington: 4.4% air yards *claypool: 133 *diontae: 69 *juju: 50 *washington: 49
  11. Seems like a good bet to make a big impact in FF the 2nd half of the season with 10-15 carries and 3-4 catches with DET down in the 4Q most weeks.
  12. EEK. Hopefully just a scare. Was about to post that two of the Steelers big playmakers on D, Minkah and Bush have yet to create a turnover this season. Will be needed over the next month.
  13. It seems like the Steelers have had a different RB and WR step up just about each week, great thing for the team but ugly for fantasy owners. The great plus on Claypool is he doesn't need much volume to be a WR3 with upside for WR1/2 any week. In four games he's already shown he's going to be a huge factor in the red zone and will also break off big chunks of yardage on short and deep routes. Also encouraging to see Matt Canada adding his skills on jet-sweeps, etc. Claypool made a comment before the bye week that he was ready for more, he knows all the plays and can line up anywhere so he shouldn't have limitations that many rookies do. Seems like a great WR3 moving forward this year.
  14. Seems like this could be the week Mike Williams finally scores.
  15. Rudolph has definitely not been the answer this year. Likely never. Let's hope the Duck is at least serviceable.
  16. Rudolph looks bad, slow to process reads, slow feet in the pocket. The team's upside was always going to be capped with him this year but he's worse than I expected. However I'd trust the coaches on not elevating The Duck. They've seen this kid from Day 1 and thought enough of him that they released him and watched while he went unclaimed. He really didn't do much in the Chargers win. QB has been a problem but more concerning to me is the OL and run game. The offense's best chance for success when Ben went down was the run game but Conner can't stay healthy and the OL appears to have aged quickly or really misses Munchak. Hopefully JuJu and Deionte Johnson return in 10 days and the O can at least score 20-24 most weeks.
  17. The Steelers running game and commitment to it has let them down. Hopefully Conner will be ready to contribute this week. Seems like if they can play D and run the ball (especially in the redzone) they could win many of their remaining games. Rudolph is what he is, just need to put less on his plate.
  18. Coming off the bye to Monday night vs. CLE looks like a Pettis breakout game.
  19. Interesting article on PFF https://www.pff.com/news/fantasy-football-impact-of-melvin-gordons-return-to-the-chargers
  20. Lynn made it clear, however, that once Gordon is ready to roll, he'll be the workhorse. "No doubt. He's our starter," the coach said. "He was the starter for a reason and I like the way Austin and J.J [Justin Jackson]'s been working. They've done a heck of a job. They've both proved they can play in this league, but they will still have a major role in the offense. But as soon as Melvin's ready, he'll go back. He'll go back to No. 1." http://www.nfl.com/news/story/0ap3000001059135/article/anthony-lynn-gordon-will-be-no-1-rb-when-hes-ready
  21. Risky move but I like it if they are confident that Rudolph will be solid. May even be able to get that first back for Ben or Rudolph if Mason has a good year. 8 first round picks now starting on D. Heyward, Watt, Dupree, Bush, Barron, Fitzpatrick, Haden and Edmunds. If the D doesn't show some serious improvement soon (as in top 5) have to think it comes down quickly on Butler and eventually Tomlin.
  22. First team OL and DL were dominant last night. Hopefully both stay healthy. Plenty of playmakers in front 7 hopefully a safety will step up this year.
  23. I'd go down with the Dez ship before dealing him for Andy Dalton.
  24. Lewis is a dynamic player, Blount is not. That is why Belichick has stuck with him.
