  1. They like him, but Im not sure he is the long term solution. I think they will look to replace Lynch with a RB in the 2016 draft or 2017 draft. The best hope is you get the end of this year and 2016 out of Rawls. Or sell him when it looks like Lynch is out of the way. He's shown enough that people will simply assume he'll be a workhorse RB1 (discounting the potential for competition to be brought in, a potential RBBC, etc.), and at least a few will be willing to pay you accordingly. The about what Hill could have netted you last offseason. Cash in on that assumption and convert that value

  3. We've been told for years the guys in front of him have been turds, even gotten lots of cute nicknames for them all.Maybe he isn't done, but the fact that so many supporters can call all these guys who have been standing in his way terrible and yet he continually gets buried on depth charts, held inactive, traded for peanuts and cut despite a slew of injuries to guys in front of him has to leave you thinking he's just not that good. Michael ended up being a turd himself, but that doesn't mean that all the reasons for hanging on to him were off base. This is a prime example, IMO. Let's look a
  4. Coughlin loves to run the ball, and that offense is just begging for a power RB inside to take advantage of the defensive looks they get due to their many three wide sets. If Darkwa can establish himself as an effective force between the tackles, he'll find himself with a fantasy relevant number of snaps soon enough.
  5. Yeah when he stood up, he turned to the sideline with a scowl on his face and threw his arms up in the air. He was immediately pulled. I think there's a screw loose. You sure about that order? Seems a lot more likely he heard the signal to come out, and then he turned to the sideline and expressed his frustration before running off the field.
  6. I had Latimer in a deep dynasty with a relatively small bench size (11 starters, 26 man rosters), and I packaged him with L. Green to obtain Eifert before the season started. If I had him now in that format, I would test the trade waters with whoever I thought valued him the most, but ultimately I would consider him droppable.
  7. Have to say that 120 total yards and 5 receptions is a pretty good week. Not quite as good as 201 yards and 4 TDs, or 148 yards and 3 TDs, but surely enough to cement a significant weekly role. After all, Belichick doesn't care about the ball hitting the ground if you're putting up yards.
  8. They are all in the same tier and approximately the same age. Doubt there's anything but a cosmetic preference there.
  9. There's zero chance that he doesn't make the team.
  10. Ya I agree 100 percent on this. But does he regress with the added coverage? Getting the top CB on him? Top CBs rarely play the slot, and that's where Cobb will be spending most of his time in 3 wide sets. Other top CBs only play one side of the field, and that's easy enough to bypass in 2 wide sets. I don't think it affects Cobb's production all that much. Not really worried about teams double-covering. Safeties have to respect whoever is running the deep routes. Cobb might get a few more of those, but he'll still likely be primarily used as a short and intermediate threat. It's not
  11. Cobb will get a few more targets, but GB will spread most of the excess targets and TD opportunities around so I don't think the offensive boost will be huge. I do think this negates some of the concern about him regressing, though, so you could argue there's less risk in selecting him. Slightly higher ceiling plus slightly higher floor = bump for me.
  12. I actually think Hunter has become a decent buy low. Hunter's currently being ranked in the 60s among WRs, and that's consistent with his April ADP (which will likely fall even further once the post-draft info starts being released). People seem to be glossing over the short-term (struggles vs press, likely struggles with playbook, etc.) and long-term (off the field red-flags) bust risk of DGB. Hunter is likely going to have opportunity this year and improved QB play, and I'd say there's a reasonable chance (~35%) that he does something significant with it. I'd rather own him than guys
  13. "Indiana running back Tevin Coleman ran the 40-yard dash at his campus pro day Wednesday, and he was timed at between 4.35 and 4.4 seconds, according to sources." http://www.baltimoresun.com/sports/ravens/ravens-insider/bal-indiana-running-back-tevin-coleman-runs-435-44-at-pro-day-as-ravens-attend-workout-sources-say-20150415-story.html
  14. Might be a nice sleeper in return yardage leagues, especially dynasties or ones that draft early (before less attentive owners are thinking about the KR game, or see who is returning kicks during preseason). Arizona cut Ginn, and Brown was the primary KR backup last year (with plenty of college success/experience). Pretty sure he backs up Peterson for punts as well. Arians let Hilton do punts and some kick returns in Indy while he was OC there, so there's a precedent. The 3rd receiver slot + some KR duty could make Brown a pretty decent option in that format. I'd at least test the waters
  15. Thanks for that info. I'm really interested in how this is going to shake out. I'd strongly consider investing in Patterson if they intend to use him at Z or in the slot, as his price is pretty low right now and any sort of rebound (coupled with another solid year from Bridgewater) would likely inflate his value a decent amount. If they're still stuck on him as an X, then I'm going to avoid until he's either on a new team or there is a new OC in town (though it might be too late for him by the time Turner is replaced).
  16. I still think his most natural fit is at the Z and in the slot, preferably with a team that uses a lot of pre-snap movement. No idea why the Vikings tried to make him the X last year. If that's still what they have in mind for him, then it's going to be a rough year for him.
  17. Dallas and PHI threw about the same number of passes to their RBs last year, but I would expect Sproles to carve out a significantly bigger piece of that pie than Dunbar was able to for as long as he remains on the roster (which may not be that long). No idea what sort of workload split PHI is hoping for between Murray and Mathews, but wouldn't be surprised if it ends up about 230 to 130, with goal line looks going to whoever happens to be in when the team gets down there. The fact that they went out and signed two guys to big contracts like this implies that they don't think very highly of
  18. Not Manning's best game, but I don't think it's as bad as his stat line might suggest. His line and receivers didn't do him any favors today.
  19. Huh? Julio is in his 4th year and had his best season this year and Beckham out scored him by 14 points in 3 fewer games.Largely on the strength of scoring 12 TDs to Julio's 6. Even if you think Beckham's other rate stats are sustainable, his TD rate obviously isn't and Jones' was below his career average. Even that out and you get the guy who's played great for 12 games vs the guy who's played great for almost 50. I'll take the more proven guy who will be playing with Ryan for the next four years or so.
  20. Beckham is the perfect sell high player. Everyone wants him, you can get almost anything you want for him, and nobody is going to look past his rookie season to anticipate the likely per-touch production regression, target regression, and impending QB decline. He looks like he's going to be a very good player in this league for a long time, but I'm not hesitating at all if I can turn him into Julio Jones.
  21. Charles Johnson coming in to play the X might end up being a huge blessing in disguise for Patterson if it pushes him into the Z or slot. Both are better fits for his current skill set, IMO.
  22. Hill's long run was extremely impressive. Denver did a pretty good job of keeping him contained otherwise, but they have a strong run defense. I like some of the misdirection aspects that CIN has been incorporating into the offense. Not too worried about the fumbling. I wouldn't overpay for him in dynasty at this point (as that's what it would take to get him), but I think he's a strong redraft play even with the timeshare as long as there aren't any major coaching staff changes. High upside and high floor, so worth a 1st round pick in most formats.
  23. EastonBlues, The Commissioner is the only person who can put anyone on the "Commissioner's Exempt List." Not the Vikings, not AP... just the Commish. The fact people do not understand that is an important thing to understand. Especially when your whole conversation is off the basis of someone other than the commish putting him there. Tough to take someones conversation seriously when they are mistaken on an important point. You're absolutely right. I didn't understand this either, and I have no idea why everyone is stating/reporting that the Vikings put him there. Thanks for the correction.
