  1. Looked to me like Sermon's timing was slightly off on most of his shotgun handoffs/read option type plays when he got the ball. Don't know if that's just a lack of chemistry due to not enough reps with Jimmy G or what. But something looked off. Whether that was the case or not, very underwhelming considering the opportunity. The TD kept him serviceable in FF and it was good that he seemed to be earning some trust from the coaching staff based on some usage in critical moments of the 4th quarter. Buy yeah....underwhelming.
  2. Isnt that the nature of the TE position tho. Outside of Kelce and Waller they are largely TD dependent. I have Andrews also and am kind of kicking myself for passing on Gronk as late round depth/replacement. In redraft Gronk is gonna prove to be one of the better draft day steals.
  3. Williams obviously has more speed and quickness and younger legs. But lots of folks saying how slow/bad Murray looked and I think that's off base. He looks like he's always looked to me. A physical, one cut, downhill guy who was hit in the backfield on several carries. Its entirely possible he's washed at age 31. But I think that may be a bit premature. He averaged 4.5 ypc just last season. The fact that he was active over Bell and Freeman despite being signed just 4 days prior AND the fact that the coaching staff seemed to trust him in the 2nd half over Williams- again after being in town for just a couple of days bode well for him continuing to be a factor all season. Very curious to hear Harbaugh's post game comments and interested in seeing if Bell is ever activated. As it stands right now, Williams is a RB3 with some RB2 upside. Great value however you acquired him. And Murray is a RB4 with some RB3 upside. Also offering value as he was most likely a FA pickup. They will both be heavily TD dependent and have relatively low floors. But isnt that most RBs these days outside the top 20?
  4. I like this perspective. Gio rose to the top of my drop list after last night but I was more focused on the other players I had putting up points for me and was drunk. For those that can afford to hold, I think it's worth it to see how it plays out over the next several weeks.
  5. Oh ok. Gotcha. I also think the higher volume and being more aggressive will have some natural uptick in ints. But I still strongly disagree with the that's who he is framing.
  6. Yeah, I picked up Murray in a deep bench league where I'm desperate for RB depth. For some reason thought he was younger than 31 (I guess b/c he came into the league relatively older at 24). But I don't see how you can't be thrilled at the opportunity ahead if you have Williams on your roster. Even with B-more distributing carries he's got the benefit of having the youngest legs and most familiarity with the offense/coaches, by far. I could foresee a scenario where Murray becomes 1A in the running game. And am selfishly rooting for that. But again, hard not to like Williams' advantages in becoming/maintaining the role of lead RB in what's been the best rushing offense in the NFL.
  7. Huh? Prescott has the 6th highest TD to INt ratio in NFL HISTORY. Throwing pics is most definitely not "who he is."
  8. Yeah, I'm not panicking. But I was expecting/hoping for a monster total yards from scrimmage and TD type of year. One game against a very good D but that O-line and playcalling looked atrocious. How are mutiple defenders in the backfield immediately as he takes the handoff on SO MANY plays?!
  9. How the hell is Cousins 2-4 with 1 int in an entire half of a NFL football game and they are trailing? Throw in a safety to boot.
  10. Deep league Flex options for PPR and 0.25 per carry and distance scoring bonus league. Sony Michel JK Dobbins Don't feel great about either but thinking of just rolling the dice with Dobbins.
  11. He was the 3rd QB taken in my snake and tied for 3rd most expensive in my auction. NOT a sleeper to the folks in my leagues. Overall I think his ADP was definitely top six.
  12. Yup. I had Ridley in my big money redraft last year. Feel like it was a year too soon. Missed out on him this year but I'm expecting big things.
  13. Oh yeah. Forgot to mention Metcalf. If he builds on his rookie year and makes a jump to low end WR1 status it could help make my season in 1 league.
  14. Antonio Gibson and Chase Young and Bryce Love (if he gets meaningful snaps)- as a life-long fan of the WFT. FF Wise: David Johnson- heavily invested in redrafts so relatively pleased with how he looked on TNF opener. Saquon- Giddy to see how he looks in what I think could be a huge, like 2400 yards from scrimmage huge, type year Kyler- Was targeting him in both my redrafts but didnt actually get him as he was more expensive than I thought in my auction and I ended up taking Mahomes early in my snake. Still very interested in seeing his development in year 2. Veteran QBs in New Places- Brady, Cam, Rivers- in that order, others I have no shares of but very curious to see what they look like 2nd year WRs- Preston Williams- picked him up off wire after going undrafted in 12 team auction. Very intrigued by his potential trajectory. And Parris Campbell- also intrigued. Rookies- Really interested to see what seems to be a deep and talented rookie class debut without the benefit of a traditional pre-season. CEH obviously got off to a huge start. I'm invested in Dobbins and a few WRs, some of who I own and some I don't. Bryan Edwards, Justin Jefferson, Lamb, Juedy, Ruggs, others. There are more but that's a start. I was so checked out of football and FF until like Tuesday of this week. Now I'm spening multiple hours a day googling random ish about 3rd string guys trying to find some depth. And it feels so good. 🤪
  15. Gotcha. Sarcasm went over my head. I'm a sucker for getting percieved value so I will often gamble when getting an injury discount. Honestly I paid zero attention this pre-season so I didn't really know that much about Sanders dealing with a hamsting issue. I passed him on my board just based on thinking Pederson plays a little too many games for my taste. But I actually was liking Sanders more and more post draft as I looked at some of his stat analysis. Now knowing its a hammy, I'm kind of reassured I passed at the moment. Tho he could very likely move past it and function as a RB1 for most of the year. I do remember studying up on Steven Jackson for like a month one year when he had a hammy in pre-season and being burned badly. Injuries are such a huge deal in FF and it can be a complete crap shoot. But I do think staying away from pre-season soft tissue seems like a good practice. It seemed like Sanders' issue was characterized as mild so I don't fault anyone for taking him in the 2nd. For yal's sake here's to it not lingering all year.
