  1. i probably shouldn't have put josh allen's name in here since he was a QB2 flashing QB1 upside at the end of 2018. but my point was simply that haskins showed more than the FF community is giving him credit for. he was a rookie who played better in the second half of the season. i like that. and from an efficiency standpoint, his last three games were pretty darn good. i dont know if all the counting stats will be there for him--i'm not advocating he's QB12 or anything--but i am 100% certain that his dynasty price tag does not reflect the promise he showed down the stretch.
  2. over his last three games, he was 47 for 70 (67.1%) for 564 yards and 5 TDs to 1 INT. he threw for 8.0 ypa and had a 109.5 rating. it's not other worldly but it is really good and shows that he was at least improving on the job. i'm not saying he's a sure thing. there's a reason he's valued so low and i dont think anyone should be starting him unless it's a tank year. but... considering that dollar store price, i'll take a swing that he might take a step forward and could end up being serviceable. (felt the same about josh allen last year and that worked out.)
  3. this kid seems to have found a fantasy blind spot and it's a bit surprising to me that he's still considered a stash guy. the buzz on this kid from camp is pretty loud. the steelers are pretty slow at wide out and claypool can flat out fly. he's also their only big receiver. considering what he's doing in camp, it almost seems inevitable that he'll be on the field a lot this year. outside of ruggs, jefferson and raegor, i think his situation this year is just as nice if not better than the other rookie receivers.
  4. i was just looking at his game logs and he finished the season really strong for a rookie. from a dynasty perspective, this guy is dirt cheap and has some solid upside.
  5. retained him at the minimum for three years. he was sort of on my bubble before that, but i didn't expect everyone to pass on him. thought i'd have to at least give 3-5% of the cap... small-ish rosters in 12 team league but at that price, i think i'll find the space.
  6. he's been climbing all offseason in ADP. he's getting drafted around 2.01 now. was going around 3.05 at the NFL draft.
  7. i'm intrigued by travis homer in deeper leagues. profiles a bit like nyheim hines and grades well as a pass protector, so he could find his way onto the field. he'd need help to be fantasy relevant, but the guy has some quicks and is generally being ignored in the fantasy world. but i dont think there's anyone who could come out of the gate (like lindsay last year) that hasn't already been mentioned...
  8. hopefully he's not hurt too bad... but early reports aren't promising.
  9. i honestly think ronald jones is a lost cause at this point. a lot of people thought he was a turd when they drafted him, he looked like a turd in preseason, and has looked like a turd in the limited action during the year. and in a lost season, it's a pretty bad sign when week 4 of your rookie year is your highest snap %... i mean, if the team turns him loose this weekend feel free to take a look. but it would take quite an impressive performance for me to turn my head and forget what we've already seen.
  10. i signed willie parker for 3 years at league minimum because of that week 17 & then all the training camp hype that was going on. (man, it sure was a different fantasy football landscape back then!) patrick mahomes was this guy last year--he showed he had the goods in his only start. this year, i'd keep an eye on CJ anderson. he's still only 27 and even though he's never been a gamebreaker, he has often been an efficient runner. another strong performance could land him a decent deal somewhere else next year. obviously, i'd keep watching damien williams
  11. losing sanders hurt. there were 10 men near-ish the line of scrimmage almost every snap. i am a lindsay fan so maybe i'm biased but it certainly felt like the browns' primary defensive assignment was keeping lindsay in check. and it worked! i also think the broncos kicking a FG on 4th n 1 on the 4 down 4 with 4 minutes to go without any healthy CBs was.... foolish. they didn't even try to draw them offsides AND they still managed to get a delay of game penalty. lol.
  12. debating him vs. deshaun watson against a higher scoring team in the semis. right now josh is in the lineup but all the experts say that's a mistake. (3 pt passing TD league. no penalties for turnovers.) i've held josh for much of the year. but actually starting him is TOUGH!
  13. that video was from sunday. not that i think he plays, but worth pointing out.
  14. gordon just said he's a gametime decision. it's not clear to me, but it also sounds like he hasn't practiced since the injury... i'm trying to think of another player who missed a couple games and returned without taking part in a practice.
  15. i started him with 80% confidence last week. the 7 for 12 against the bengals does not instill a lot of confidence in me this week...
  16. not a lot of fantasy playoffs love for this guy, eh? i'm intrigued and considering him this week. but... the lions have allowed 62 QB rushing yards all year and they've faced jimmy g, dak, aaron rodgers, russell wilson, trubisky, cam...
  17. it's really tough to start him after posting a 7 for 12 + 2 for 23 vs cincinnati. right now, he's on my bench behind jaylen samuels or corey davis.
  18. why do people get so triggered when someone makes a claim like this? aggressively pretending you know what happened just because you dont think someone else would say something bad in public is... well... lame. (i've also been to jets games and i agree with the posters here that say: the stands there are a hostile place and a lot of nasty #### gets said, racial or otherwise, and it usually draws a mix of laughter and hatred in response. seriously. large groups of grown men still laugh at stuff like this. i'll never go back.) fournette might be lying. but if you want the
  19. i know i was pretty much the only person worried about it, but josh gordon played 87% of the snaps yesterday. nice to see him on the field a lot. hoping for a monster game next week!
  20. i think it's fair to consider him a high end WR3 with WR2 upside this week. i for one am really hoping he'll be on the field a lot more this weekend...
  21. 55 rookies! wow. and interesting. thanks. so i guess the combo of the draft class with the growing trend of teams avoiding paying expensive vets, this looks like a perfect storm... i'll be curious to monitor this next year in this league.
  22. yeah. i think we've been seeing this trend in the NFL for a bit but it really feels like it jumped a lot this year.
  23. this is definitely the youngest my team has been in this league in the 18 years i've been in it. normally, i've found value in vets in this contract/auction format since people tend to bid as if it's a dynasty league. but this year i personally account for 7 of the rookies rostered in the league, 4 of them at RB. (45 total rookies now that someone picked up hamilton for the broncos!)
