  1. Chargers have so many other needs, I'm not sure it makes sense for them to have two 1st round RBs on the roster My WAG is that the Chargers are trying to create a market for their pick in front of CAR The dream would be IND trading up, but that's not likely. More likely DEN, but within the same division? Should be a fun night. enjoy!
  2. 12 team PPR, start 1-6 RB, 1-6 WR and 1-6 TE. So 8 starters and a QB, no K or D (Catch 22 League) Gave: Howard Got: Snead and 1.07 Cashed out on Howard, and hoping a player falls to 1.07 I like
  3. Lacy has never been the paradigm of health, either. SEA likes competition. They will have it. Lacy is a two down banger like Rawls. Prosise at minimum will be the 3rd down, no huddle RB with an opportunity to be more
  4. disagree, Lacy getting a one year deal doesn't change Prosise's outlook... his ability to stay healthy will determine his value
  5. I don't remember Lloyd or Johnson being effective. I will say Hogan came on strong. I don't think anybody will say NE has anything but a great offense that plays to their strengths. So if they are hot for Cooks, they have something in mind and that is a good thing. This is a completely different scenario than signing a vet to a FA contract. This is a regime targeting a specific player for a reason and willing to pay for it. That bodes well for Cooks. Maybe they are doing a run n shoot? or the GS Warriors small ball? Cooks/Edelman/Lewis/white with Gronk/Hogan/Mitchell/Blount doing the

  7. I think NE is thinking 2 year window with trading for Cooks. They do not have a history of paying top dollar to many positions and certainly not WR (let Welker walk recently) So would NE rather have Cooks the next two years or Butler? As for FF, I think it is a push for Cooks. Not sure he would get more than 125 targets in NE with a healthy Gronk. But Cooks would be a matchup nightmare in that offense, even with Brady's long ball deteriorating [side bar: has NE had a good deep threat since Moss?]
  8. I think so... I was shamelessly bumping my post on the first page since I have been a proponent for over a year and have him on a pair of Devy teams
  9. wish he was a few pounds heavier and maybe bench a little more, but it may not matter with everything else he brings to the field
  10. i thought that was a little odd, too. FWIW, I see a lot of Gio in his game
  11. I see a clear top three that I can't separate now. I don't see a clear cut other WR right now that I like in the 1st of rookie drafts (Top 12) i like Dupree's skill set and think it will translate to the NFL. Malone's, too. Goodwin, Hansen and Darboh intrigue me for value. Cannon is a bit thin. Ford, too. Not sure Ross is big enough (doesn't play physical)
  12. The "problem" I have with older college prospects is that they should dominate at the college level because of their physical maturity relative vs their opponent. That's why studies like Jon Moore are relevant. JuJu born 11/22/96. As a 18 year old put up 54-724-5. At 19 89-1454-10. Regressed as a 20 year old a bit 70/914/10 But he more than held his own as an 18 year old Frosh in a Power 5 conference. Dominated as a 19 year old Soph. Put up very good numbers as a Junior, especially after switching QBs Calvin born 10/24/94. As a 21 year old Frosh 89/1045/7, very good numbers
  13. Thanks for starting this Faust! There is some nice talent that may be eligible next year, including a few red shirt sophomores like Webber and Darnold. I've got a few one round devy's coming up and have been looking at the following for potential 2018 draft (hate carrying a player for more than a year, but make exceptions) QB: Darnold, Jackson and Rosen RB: Guice, Barkley, Chubb, Freeman, Patrick, Jones III, Weber, Scarlett and Michel WR: Sutton, Cain, Washington, Kirk, St Brown, Westbrook, Lazard, Tate, Callaway, Irwin, and Thompson TE: Gesicki, Jones and Andrews
  14. True enough. When you assume you save time and are usually right. Carry on
  15. "As the result of another trade, the above trade essentially morphed into this" you admitted to not posting a completed trade, most likely to get feedback before offering/accepting and making adjustments (or morphing) into something else use AC forum, or better yet is Twitter and hashtag it #dynastytrades and make it a poll, you'll get more "answers" and some feed back if you seek it out
  16. I think EBF would agree that Chubb was not the same player as he was before injury. That said, another year removed should help him get back to where he was and may vault him to top 3 or 4 RBs next year (think he would be 5+ this year)
  17. you don't see the difference between a professional and amateur athlete? between a paid contract/job and NCAA athlete? yeah, we agree to disagree
  18. McCaffrey and Fournette are simply making business decisions and have come to the conclusion that their time is better spent trying to shave a .05 of their 40 than playing in an exhibition game. The Jaylon Smith (and maybe Lattimore's or any college RB) injury changed the calculus for top prospects. Bowl games benefits the fans/alumni, and make money for the school and conference. The players get an experience, maybe it's the last time they play a football game and are part of a team. I talked about "risk aversion" in the splitting the pot thread, same thing applies with the McCaffre
  19. Can totally see resigning Lacy to a cheap prove it deal, using Montgomery more... and a later pick in a deep RB class. They need to use the draft capital elsewhere.
  20. i tried to get him in dynasty this past offseason, but one guy valued him like Watkins... FA next year, should have been motivated, Palmer coming off a good year. Had Floyd in a couple redrafts, but cut him quickly. I was sooooo wrong about him and ARI this year. Hope he gets the help he needs.
  21. With that D, and WR talent, think Romo may end up here... just a wild ### thought I had reading this page (have no shares of Romo or JAX players)
  22. Tough to have tiers until everyone declares (or not)
  23. I would hope NFL teams are drafting to fit their respective schemes. I see McCaffrey as more versatile than Fournette Give Fournette a big OL and a FB and look out.... but I don't see him splitting out wide, in the slot or running a wild cat play like McCaffrey [side bar: I admit to having a predilection to RBs who catch passes and own McCaffrey and Cook in a few places, but no Fournette]
  24. i respectfully disagree. Right now I expect Fournnette and Cook to be the first two RBs taken, but I can find several scenarios where I would rather have Cook on my team than Fournette.
  25. That's four players that are worth drafting in rookie drafts next year.... Gallman and Scott will need to boost their draft stock and hopefully land in a decent/good spot Williams is a rookie 1st lock, Watson probably won't sneak into the first in such a deep draft.
