  1. Dallas really isn't that good. Week 1 they caught us with a team of basically either all rookies or guys in the first year of a system playing D. I think the defense has shown the past few weeks that they're progressing week to week and getting better. DeAndre Baker looked like a complete hack the first two games and you never even hear his name mentioned anymore (a good thing mind you). Carter/Golden/Ximines actually has the makings of a decent pass rush, especially with the push Dexter has been getting up the middle. I still think Jones is a huge upgrade for this offense going forward
  2. I'll honestly be shocked if Amazon doesn't buy out the rights to Sunday Ticket. They've been trying to find their way in forever now, they have the little test they've been doing with TNF, I think they're just going to outbid anyone who even tries to step to the table and probably make it an cheap addon w/ a Prime subscription or something. Amazon isn't interested in buying it to sell it for $350/year either, they just want it in their never-ending mission for world domination. I wouldn't be shocked if they buy it and just offer it as part of a Prime subscription.
  3. I feel like they have to give Allen the start against the 49ers. It'd be a huge test game for him going into Levi, 49ers defense playing out of their mind. If Allen still looks good and competent in that game, I'd seriously wonder how you could even debate pulling him for Newton, who really outside of 2 magical seasons has always been a runner who can throw rather than a passer who can run. The offense just seems more efficient from what I've seen w/ Allen under center than it's looked at any point under Cam really. Even going back to the MVP year, when you look at it outside a vacuum, Cam had
  4. Yup, these next few weeks leading into the bye are huge. Cardinals, Lions, Cowboys, Jets. If Giants are going to make the playoffs, goal here has to be 3-1 in that stretch. Put the team at 5-5 going into the second half of the season. Dolphins and Skins are wins, that's 7-5, from there you would have to steal 2 games from the Bears/Packers/Eagles/Eagles slate. Easier said than done, but that would be your path to playoffs for the Giants. The Eagles and Cowboys aren't that good. Giants defense has been getting progressively better week by week and they should only keep getting better as a
  5. I think everyone needs to pump the breaks on both sides of the Jones/Giants Offense debates. So far Jones has played a game against the Bucs, missing the best RB in the NFL for the entire second half. And his #2 WR for the entire game. Jones was dominant without Barkley in that game, Giants went on to win. Jones played a game against the Redskins, missing the best RB in the NFL for the entire game and his #2 WR for the entire game. While not dominant he played fine, he wasn't asked to do much as they basically dominated this entire game, the picks were of some concern though obviou
  6. This is a laughably horrible take in general. For the most part Barkley avoids contact by virtue of being as shifty as he is... he doesn't 'throw his body around'. He missed two games in three years in college and this was a freak accident where he was mid juke and the defender grabbed his ankle and rolled his entire body over top of it as Saquon was mid step. This had nothing to do with him 'throwing his body around'. His foot got caught in the grass as the dude tackling him put his entire body weight onto Saquon's ankle and rolled it extremely hard. As for the Shaun Alexander take... mo
  7. It sounds like the MRI was 100% just to be safe cause his shoulder was a bit sore. The MRI revealed nothing which likely means it's just a slightly bruised shoulder and nothing more, they wouldn't be putting him out there when 90% of the team is already hurt if there was any chance they felt he could injure the shoulder further. So I'm not terribly concerned he gets hurt, I also think there's a TONNNNN of pressure on the Browns. They were the offseason "champs" came out and didn't just lose to a mediocre Titans team, they got used and abused at home. They've heard about it all week, if t
  8. I always try to get as close to 12th as possible in my one league, this year I wound up with 9th and started David Johnson, Lev Bell as my 1st and 2nd round pick. Which, if we assume players play up to their potential in their offenses... to me? That's way better than starting say Saquon + Julian Edleman or something like that. DJ + Bell have it in them and have proven to have the ability to both be #1 overall player in your league. Saquon has proven that too but that guy you're getting at the 2/3 turn, most definitely hasn't proven that. Even from the 12 hole though you could be going somethi
  9. Not sure how Samuel isn't reasonable at 7/8 round. Just look at the guys going around his ADP (which is 7.06). Dante Pettis, Dede Westbrook (who I like more tbh), Larry Fitzgerald, Geronimo Allison, Sterling Shepard. These are all the guys going off the board in the 8th round in PPR. I would argue outside of Allison and Westbrook, Samuel has the most upside of those guys going in that range. He's a lock to be the WR2 for the Panthers, he may potentially see more target share than DJ Moore if the reports out of camp are to be believed at all. He runs a 4.3 40 as well, he won't need a large
  10. Lets be fair... <insert Broncos offensive player here> and Cecil has told us to draft them. Some were horrible (HIllman, Ball, Latimer etc) and some were amazing (Emmanuel Sanders, Julius Thomas, Phillip Lindsay etc).
  11. Man, I clicked this expecting a few possible things someone would call out FBG on... this nonsense certainty wasn't one of them though. There are definitely some things they do that I find to be slightly annoying over time (primarily on the podcasts though). But I wouldn't say they pat themselves on the back too much, if anything it's the opposite. They pat the entire fantasy writer community on it's back. Not themselves.
  12. As far as I'm concerned, Haskins checks nearly every box in what you'd want in a QB. Size - Dude's a prototype in this department, he's big, he's meaty, he's not going to be easy to sack and he has that nice thick frame where he can take a hit and get back up without much issue. Arm Strength - He's not quite Mike Vick, but he can throw it 40 yards downfield on a dime and displayed that a lot last year. I can live with him not being able to throw it 85 yards the 5 times a season that type of play opens up. Accuracy - Kids hyper accurate on short/intermediate
  13. I'd be shocked if Bell plays again in a Steelers uniform personally. After all that stuff w/ his teammates coming out publicly to bash him, I'm really not sure how he can return to the locker room and act like nothing happened. I've legitimately never seen something like that before, usually players stick together. Even if they are annoyed the word to the press is always: So that's #1. Only way he suits up for the Steelers in my eyes is if they bite the bullet and pay him, which is doubtful. If he does somehow show up after the bye though... I'd say he's like a 50% split w/ Connor
  14. See, I disagree. I think what we're seeing is Nagy realize that Cohen fits his scheme and style better than Howard. Nagy is from the Andy Reid school, where north/south running is secondary to a RB who can work with the ball in space. Howard is a great downhill runner, but he's pedestrian in open space. Something tells me you're going to see this become more of a committee where Cohen is seeing 10 carries and 5-8 targets a game through the air. That's not a ton of work, but with his talent, it's enough to make him a low-end RB2 at worst in PPR.
