  1. Mac looks the exact same as he did in college to me. Moved the DB off of Harry on the 3rd and 13, proceeded to lead a 90 yard drive. Should have had a 40 yard TD to Harry but the dude slowed down in his route. Still, displayed for the second week in a row the accuracy on deep balls he had in college. Also showed that he can zip a ball when he feels it’s needed on the throw to Olzewski. Called his own plays in the hurry up to start the second half leading a 60 yard drive for a TD. With how many QB’s are at least putting up 200 yards rushing he’ll probably struggle to ever put up QB1 numbers in his career for fantasy but this looks like a high quality NFL QB to me.
  2. I would give Carter the nod but it seems pretty insignificant in the context of this scenario. Round 4 hit rate is 1.37% for top 12 and 4.11% for top 24 finish in their first three seasons. Round 6 is 0.00% for top 12 and 1.64% for top 24 finish in their first three seasons. There are scenarios I don’t think are accounted for which would be a three way split in the backfield or that the Jets starting RB still is not on the team. 🤷🏻‍♂️
  3. Sooooo no one is going to talk about how he looked like basically big Jamaal Williams last night?
  4. The Najee apologists still coyly defending an awful draft pick. “No one wanted that OL in the first”. Well that’s an awful statement because the Steelers should have used whatever early draft capital they had on OL. Now we’re stuck with this: https://twitter.com/clevta/status/1408388169972785152?s=21 I’ll eat crow if I’m wrong but don’t come crying on this board if Najee has a sub 3.5 YPC and Friermuth has a sub 30% snap share come week 5 or 6.
  5. Lol… glad we got Najee Harris. It fixes everything. Ever heard of trading down? Or trading up? Or not taking a TE in r2? Come on.
  6. The fact that people even question if this guy has a future in the NFL says a lot about the NFL.
  7. I wouldn’t talk trash about Football Jones. He’s an admin sock account, IMO.
  8. This is a nice end of draft what the hell. If he looks awful in camp it’s an easy cut but you at least know with the draft capital and terrible QB’s around him they’re going to give him a shot. If he’s good he should be able to float this year with Cooks, Cobb, Collins, DJ and Lindsey. Situation is awful but it’s a cheap stab in the dark.
  9. Swift owners are in a horrid denial. 2017 and 2018 Jamaal Williams started 15 games to Aaron Jones 12 games. It took an entirely new coaching staff to release Aaron Jones. Would I bet on Anthony Lynn and Dan Campbell to do stupid things? You’re damn right I would.
  10. Ya, he’s not Portis but he’s gonna get every opportunity to be the lead back workhorse. I would expect a Freeman/Coleman like split for him and Mostert if SF gets what they want out of him.
  11. Barfield’s yards created just came out. Sermon ran 70% zone runs inside/outside… he also studied Shanahan’s offense at OU because their scheme was so similar. He’s gonna eat and you’re gonna be wrong. This is more Steve Slaton, Alfred Morris, Devonta Freeman than it is any of the #### he’s slung at the wall in San Fran so far.
  12. Sometimes a bad class is just a bad class. Forcing a bad RB into the top of the 2nd/into the first over Bateman, Marshall, the Moore’s maybe even Waddle or Smith is going to lead to a lot of heartbreak this season. Don’t do it. Nothing against Carter but the risk/reward is dumb. For what? Poor man’s Devonte Freeman? No thanks.
  13. Trey Sermon is rev’d up to go looks like.
  14. No. Every running back in the NFL better be able to do that including Benny Snell.
  15. https://twitter.com/adamschefter/status/1071007618766909441?s=21 When you find the Najee Harris 22 mph run let me know. I’ll wait.
  16. I’m off it. Gonna ban myself from saying Najee Harris in this thread anymore unless it’s to say: I was wrong… and I sincerely hope I am. As much as I don’t respect wasting draft capital on RB, I always did enjoy the play of Lev Bell.
  17. Uh, ok… cool. It’s who you want him to be but he couldn’t be bothered to run one damn 40 because he’s slow as molasses. He’s the least deserving 1st round RB in the last 20 years with the exception of maybe Sony Michel.
  18. No they are not. Not when you have had four years of opportunity to do them and can’t break a 20 yard run to save your life. Get out of here. You probably had the same defense of Jarvis Jones. Yet, we fawn and desire the Shaziers, Watts, Bush’s, Claypools and Fitzpatricks on the team. Athleticism matters in athletics and I shouldn’t have to say that. You draft a guy shaped and molded like a fullback or a slow version of TJ Yeldon and that’s exactly what you’re going to get.
  19. Lol… Kerryon is the same age as Najee. Really hope all my hate makes me wrong about him.
  20. Most everything they did was idiotic this year, so, par for the course. Took opt-outs off their board, draft a 23 y/o RB who didn’t athletic test, draft a TE that didn’t athletic test, forget how bad Jarvis Jones lack of athleticism burned you, finally take into account athleticism some when you draft an unnecessary off ball LB in the 4th. Then burn next years 4th for a dude who probably would have went undrafted, has the athleticism of a wooden post and failed to produce in any meaningful way in college. Seriously the Cam Heyward comp is a joke. Heyward had 37.5 tackles for loss in college. The only way this draft could have been worse is if they would have taken a FB somewhere in there.
  21. I wouldn’t put up much of a fight on Amon-Ra. In fact I was arguing against him being a 2nd rounder too until it became apparent that this class was going to be on the short end. Looking at your rankings I start to deviate around tier 4. I have Mac Jones and Friermuth higher (though Friermuth is on the edge since he didn’t test athletically). Toney I have lower too (didn’t have him graded very well predraft).
  22. I got to 20 players valued as first and second rounders not including IDP stuffs. He would be 21st for me after I went back and looked (22nd in PPR behind Amon-Ra). Guess you prove your point on that one.
  23. I felt better about him before the Elijah Mitchell pick. Shanahan doesn’t care and will replace RB’s on a whim. That said, Sermon has a RAS comparable to Miles Sanders just without the extra gear in the 40. He was an outlier statistically but I liked what he brought to the table as an athlete and that seemed to be reflected in what the film grinders thought and draft capital. I’m trying to talk myself into him late 1 in standard leagues. Recency bias of Keshawn Vaughn has me spooked some.
