  1. Jackson is 34. Not many 34 year old RBs are able to contribute at a high level. Betting on Fred Jackson to be the exception is bad business. Ray Rice looked GREAT in his last full preseason before averaging 3.1 ypc at age 27. I understand the love all Bills fans have for Fred..but he is still a 34 year old RB. 34...
  2. Agreed. And going to a team out of the division and conference would be a plus. Maybe he'll show he's a better player than Lynch yet again while he's there.
  3. Davante may not have Jordy's top end speed, but his measurables compare favorably to Packers legend Sterling Sharpe. I'm excited to see what the kid can do. In college he was a TD machine.
  4. Latest from Rotoworld. Is Hillman a threat to this guy? 9News' Mike Klis said Broncos RB Ronnie Hillman is now the "1B runner behind C.J. Anderson."Hillman has been electric this preseason, averaging 7.5 yards on his 16 carries. The hot start has allowed Hillman to blow past Montee Ball on the depth chart, and it appears he is in a position to steal carries from Anderson as well. Hillman has struggled before when given big workloads and lacks the ideal size to be a true feature back, but he is a great change of pace option who can rip off big chunk plays. If Anderson falters, Hillman has the talent to pick up the slack.Aug 24 - 11:42 AMSource: 9News
  5. Any reason why his production fell off a cliff last season prior to the injury?
  6. 4 for 40 as he slowly knocks the rust off. I love the kid in Dynasty.
  7. I own him in two leagues. The above is absolutely accurate. Great example that all the physical prowess in the world won't compensate for lack of brain power at the WR position. I'm not sure I agree with this. I think it is a physical problem in that he isn't getting the same separation in camp as the guys in front of him. That seems to be the consensus from the people following Vikings camp. And this is just my personal opinion, but I thought he looked very awkward catching that TD the other night. The route itself was beautiful, but the way he came down with the ball just didn't look like a smooth or natural motion. I'm holding him through the preseason to see if maybe he catches lightning in a bottle
  8. My only concern with Abdullah is his frustrating tendency to fumble. In the NFL, you won't play for long if you keep putting the ball on the carpet.
  9. Not really. DGB is much faster. And quicker..And a much smoother route runner...He's just a far better athlete. Not all 6'5, 235lb people are created equal.
  10. I just noticed that two footballguys writers have Yeldon rated as the #4 rated RB in all of Dynasty Football within the past week 8/8 and 8/4. That would be Chad Parsons and Daniel Simpkins. I would love to know what they know that I do not. The only backs both have rated higher are Bell, Lacy, and Gurley...talk about your bold rankings.
  11. I want to see some reports that he looks good running the ball. While being a great blocker will keep him on the field for more downs, it doesn't really matter if he can't run it. He's a player I'm really looking forward to seeing in games. FWIW, the fans who are in training camp seem to think he is clearly the best RB on the team.
  12. Tebow is reportedly looking solid in Eagles camp. Offering a late pick for him might not be a bad idea.
  13. Shhhhhhhhhhh! Snag him super late and thank me later Today, Cordarrelle was a different guy. It was almost as if something finally clicked, or maybe the message finally got through to him. Today , I saw him reel in acrobatic catches down the sideline, I saw him make blocks on running plays, and I saw what he could do when he’s engaged. You heard that right folks, I SAW CORDARRELLE MAKE BLOCKS IN THE RUN GAME! This isn’t to say that I don’t still think he doesn’t “get it” completely. The antics are wearing on me a little bit. It’s almost as if he read the story about the diva wide receivers with quirky personalities and wanted to take it to a whole new level. No, it’s not that. I think that we might have something with Cordarrelle that we had with the last notable #84 that played for this team. ... That’s what I saw on the field today with Cordarrelle Patterson. An enigma of late, to say the least, Patterson was targeted early in team drills and continued to shine as the fans on hand in Mankato chanted his name. Twenty-five yards across the middle. Forty-Five yards with an acrobatic adjustment down the sidelines. Even the incompletions thrown towards him were more impressive today. I’m telling you, this was the young dynamo we saw flash so many times during his rookie season. Oh, and this was mixing in with the number ones off and on throughout the day too.

  14. Gabbert is one of my favorite players to watch in the entire NFL. You just know he's going to cause something bad to happen in the near future -- he's like clockwork.
  15. Former Eagles scout John Middlekauff said Tuesday that he would take Pryor over Cam Newton for the next 10 years...WOW http://www.rotoworld.com/player/nfl/6757/terrelle-pryor
  16. Sidney Rice, Chris Henry. Besides, Green and Moss comparisons are pretty lazy in itself. Henry was a freak talent with mental issues while Rice just can't avoid injuries. I liked both of those players as prospects quite a bit. Both showed they had elite potential at the NFL level.
  17. AJ Jenkins showed absolutely nothing in preseason. Hunter caught two TDs in the last two preseason games.
  18. Josh Freeman looked like he was destined for stardom after 2010...i still can't figure out where it all went wrong.
  19. I can't think of many other players who were compared to AJ Green and Randy Moss coming out. No way I give up on him this early in his career.
  20. For his current price, can you really go wrong if you have a deep bench? Look at the physical tools he has: Or even at Ohio State: Carson thinks Pryor has a bright future: “A lot of guys just grow up being bigger, faster and stronger than everybody and don’t quite have the work ethic. He works as hard as anybody I’ve been around. He wants to be great. He practices hard. He studies hard. He watches a ton of film. He’s got a great combination of God-given ability and skill to go with a great work ethic and a great desire to be a great player.” http://www.timesonline.com/sports/steelers/steelers-notes-palmer-optimistic-about-pryor-s-future-in-nfl/article_eca046d5-a94e-5eb1-842e-faa92367ce37.html Will he develop into a great player? Who knows, but as a lottery ticket I'm holding until I see more information. He is one of the few backups in the NFL that could be absolutely HUGE from a fantasy perspective...HUGE
