  1. Too true. I am just trying to temper expectations for people who expect Etienne to run away with a every down role.
  2. There are a lot of reasons to think James Robinson is a better player than Murray. That's not really the point though, here is the carry breakdown for Murray/Kamara their two years together 2019 Murray 146 / Kamara 171 2020 Murray 146 / Kamara 187 Obviously Kamara was much more involved in the passing game but I expect a similar timeshare. Maybe Meyer wants Etienne to be a 150 carry / 80 rec back like Kamara. He is on record saying he looks at him as a 3rd down back. The point is that both players will severely limit the others upside in fantasy. It would be difficult for eithe
  3. There is where I am at as well. James Robinson is certainly not a JAG, I think he proved that last year by being 3rd in yards after contact while in a terrible terrible offense. What he does not have though is home run speed, which apparently matters a great deal to the new coaching staff. Both backs should be involved this year which will make the backfield one that is hard to trust.
  4. I loved this post until the last sentence. Im a big fan of both Etienne's talent and landing spot but TE is the premiere spot in fantasy right now. Having someone like Kelce is such a positional advantage that is hard to find. Every draft has an Etienne, I don't think every draft has a Kyle Pitts.
  5. Does this trade happen if Dallas doesn't trade back because two CBs went before their pick? Which then leads to NYG trading back because PHI took the last WR they wanted? This was an aggressive smart move by CHI but I don't think this was the plan all along.
  6. Yeah there is no way Trubisky signs that contract with the Bears. There's no way the Bears offer it.
  7. They didn't have Trubisky though right? He was a FA and they clearly didn't want to resign him. You do have a point with Foles but they seem to think Dalton is an upgrade. The consensus seems to be that Nagy/Pace needed to do something at QB to keep their jobs and I don't think running back Trubisky/Foles was a real option.
  8. I've been getting a ridicule for expressing this view recently. Dalton isn't going to carry a team to a championship by himself but his teams won 10 games in a tough AFCN four times. Assuming that Wilson or Watson trades are impossible, which it looks like they are, I'm not sure what better options Pace had. I think I'd prefer Dalton to Fitzpatrick, Mariota or Alex Smith. Should they have traded for Carson Wentz? I know some people are saying punt the season and draft someone next year but I don't think Pace and Nagy have that luxury. They need to win now to keep their jobs and Dalton is
  9. I thought this was a pretty good landing spot until I looked into Daniel Jones stats from last year. People didn't want him to go to Baltimore because of their low passing volume but Lamar had over twice as many passing TDs (26 vs 11) and only 200 less yards. Anyone buying in dynasty?
  10. I view this as a good signing for Robinson. We all knew they were going to add another back. Them going with a vet that likely won't challenge for the starting job was the ideal. I will get concerned if they bring a pass catching back like Duke Johnson or Jamal Williams. Someone that might demand significant touches and we end up with a real timeshare. I don't think he has the top end speed to put him in the top 5. In no order, Chubb, Kamara, Cook, CMC, Henry. That's my top 5 and I can't see him pushing any of those out. Barkley, Aaron Jones and Hunt all probably ahead of him too
  11. Every discussion about Robinson centers around the high percentage of snaps he got last year. People don't bring up how bad that offense was and how good Robinson was in that bad offense. If the offense as whole takes a step forward, which we expect it to under Trevor, why can't Robinson still be a fantasy RB1 even if his carry % drops.
  12. I agree he looked terrible last year. The Pats seem to think that it was a result of injuries and no real training camp or maybe both? I have no idea how they saw him last year and decided to bring him back
  13. If a player hit Brady the way they were allowed to hit Cam Goodell would have had the player assassinated.
