  1. 12-team ppr, 20-man rosters 1 qb, 2 rb, 3 wr, 1 te, 2 flex, 1 k, 1 def Team a (8-0) received: Michael Thomas, jax def Team b (rebuild) received: juju, 2018 1st round pick from team a, bills def
  2. Does this fit what everyone is seeing thus far? QBs: Way down compared to preseason consensus. The "big 3" have been huge disappointments and are being surpassed by Jackson, Mayfield, etc RB: awesome, deep group with a potential 1.01 overall in Barkley WR: lacking high-end elite talent but solid depth TE: Not many 1st or 2nd round talents to speak of
  3. Agholor looks like the Eagles' most dynamic/explosive playmaker. If confidence and mental issues were his problems, this string of solid production will be extremely beneficial for him
  4. Annoying how this guy was the model of consistency in college, yet the day he turns pro has a lingering hamstring problem. #### happens though. Fingers crossed for no setbacks and we can enjoy this guy's talent
  5. Williams is clearly failing as a pass catcher, but excelling as a blocker on the outside. And blocking is what teams really value in their #2 WRs /s Butler not playing more is a failure of the Cowboys' coaching staff
  6. One way for Fuller to increase targets is for Hopkins' impossibly/unsustainable target share to decrease
  7. It's pretty obvious at this point Murray is bad, right? He barely cracked 4 ypc last year with a top 3 offensive line in Oakland. He was/is a touchdown dependent between the tackles grinder. McKinnon doesn't have quite the 3-down skillset that Cook does, but the talent gap between McKinnon and Murray is so large it would be a mistake not to use McKinnon in that role I think.
  8. Keep in mind, McKinnon is the most athletic rb in the league. Last year was completely lost for Minnesota rb's due to an injury-plagued offensive line, so I think it would be a mistake to extrapolate last year's stats to this season. Looking forward, if used in a similar way to Dalvin (which is a bit of a stretch given Murray got the start last night. Murray is awful though and any touch he receives over McKinnon is a missed opportunity), we can expect similar production to what Dalvin gave us through 4 weeks.
  9. Thankfully Treadwell was drafted young, because he seems to be more of a long-term hold. Unfortunate for him, he's behind the best WR duo in the league and neither of them are close to past their primes
  10. Yeah I agree his "value" is a bit higher than what I received. But over the offseason and first 4 weeks I received 0 offers in a league that is fairly active in terms of trades. And it was obvious Gronk didn't fit my window (or lack thereof)
  11. I meant that the 2018 1st round pick is from a very good team (top 4 contender). So it's likely a late 1st
  12. 12-team PPR dynasty: I traded him away for a late 2018 1st round pick, chris godwin, and jonnu Smith My team is terrible and Gronk is by far my best player, so holding this year and next made little to no sense for my squad. I shopped him for ~1 week to every owner where it made sense to and this was the best trade I could swing. Seems like I got ~70% value for him
  13. 12 team PPR, deep rosters Team A (contender) received: Gronk Team B (bad roster, rebuilding) received: Chris Godwin, Jonnu Smith, 2018 1st round pick (from likely top 4 team)
  14. One way I look at athleticism is that, assuming a prospect has the baseline requisite measurables (which exact values can be debated), it matters if a prospect under- or over-performs his athleticism. Just to use a couple extreme examples, Diggs and DGB (remember him?). Diggs had a very young breakout age and was very productive in college despite modest combine #s. DGB (or justin hunter etc) were athletic freaks yet didn't amount to much in terms of production. If a prospect is bigger and faster than their peers and still can't produce, it's a major red flag. And likewise, if a prospect
  15. Getting off topic but I agree. Case in point, imagine if Dallas drafted Ramsey at 4 overall (the consensus pick) and Henry in round 2. Compare that to Elliot and Jaylen Smith. No brainer to me
  16. That's basically how I understand EBF's take as well. But still, there needs to be a metric that tracks this so we can compare players and not just speak in generalities about what we think we saw.
  17. Floyd and Treadwell do not move the needle for Thielen one bit
  18. Linking arms and kneeling, meant to be unifying etc, is actually divisive given the negative reaction of the majority of fans at these games. Whoops
  19. NFL players continue to link arms in a sign of solidarity for a singular cause, and encourage fans to join them. If only there was already another uniting and rallying gesture that athletes and fans participated in before major sporting events...
  20. As a dynasty player holding the 1.01 rookie pick, I wish he would sit out the remainder of this college season
  21. I won't disagree with this too much, because identifying talent is obviously extremely difficult. But imo the starting point has to be college production and measurable athleticism. From that you can nitpick or tape grind or whatever.
  22. Do i really need to add, "assuming the prospect doesn't have some other fatal flaw preventing NFL success." ? C'mon
  23. Ok I'll play along here: Andrew Williams - only average agility and zero production catching passes Jordan Lynch - bottom 5% combine measureables Ka'Deem Carey - bottom 5% combine measureables Sankey - No real explanation, prolific in college and above average combine. Not sure why he didn't fire in the NFL Tre Mason - was actually very productive in the NFL for a year before the Rams unexpectedly drafted Gurley. Flamed out with apparent mental issues. Also, did not catch passes in college. So I ask again, what's the knock on Hunt?
