  1. Is this mismanagement by the Broncos? You know that if one guy gets Covid and is in direct contact with others, you're hooped. That's why some teams talked about (I don't know if they did it) keeping one emergency QB isolated.
  2. You have to think like a coach, no a personnel guy. If CMC says he's fine and the medical checks out, you want your best guys on the field. You want to win games, you want to end the season on a positive note. You're right as a personnel guy, but most coaches don't think that way.
  3. That may be true fantasy-wise, but it's not what's happening on the field. Teams have been scheming to take Evans away all season and he's been the one that's consistently double-covered. Even without Evans seeing a lot of targets, he's the WR other teams are most worried about.
  4. But functionally you're doing the same thing. Getting a 10 yard DPI call = a 10 yard catch. In football terms, it's exactly the same thing. The much, much weirder thing is awarding points for simply making a catch. A reception is absolutely valueless in the NFL only yards (and TDs) matter. Simply catching a ball is not a positive play, it's catching a ball for positive yardage. A reception for -4 yards is a negative play, a catch for 0 yards is a worthless play as well. The value in a catch is in the yardage (or points) it generates on the field. How is awarding points for DPI chang
  5. No... you wouldn't give a TD because a TD isn't awarded... You'd give whatever that yardage was. If it was a DPI on the 1 yard line, you'd give 1 receiving yard.
  6. Simplest is 1 yard PI = 1 yard receiving. Because functionally, that's what happens. A 40 yard DPI call = a 40 yard catch. They generate exactly the same outcome.
  7. Arians is so full of ####. Evans was not frequently open, in large part because Leftwich/Arians scheme like it's 2009. They keep Evans to a restricted route tree almost 100% playing the X receiver role, limiting his looks. You can see a breakdown of last week here: https://www.pewterreport.com/bucs-briefing-was-mike-evans-really-open/
  8. I've liked this idea. A WR who beats his man and gets tackled 20 yards downfield is accomplishing the same result as a completion. Generating DPI's is almost as valuable as a catch (only slightly less because there's no run after). Ideally forcing DBs to manhandle you would be rewarded.
  9. Here's a question: Pollard has looked better than Zeke all season in this offense. He's much more dynamic as a pass catcher and actually has a significantly better PFF grade. I've personally never been very high on Elliott, I think he's severely overhyped playing behind one of the best OLs in the league, a very good young QB, and because he's a Cowboy. I've always thought Elliott was only an above average back in probably the best situation in the NFL over his career. I think we're seeing the fruits of that now. Anyways, is it possible that Pollard actually delivers more value than
  10. The question I'm curious on if its MchNichols (who before this season has looked terrible and bounced around a number of teams) or Foreman now that he's back?
  11. The point is that Dallas isn't going to supplant anyone on that roster as soon as they're healthy. Yes, 2 TDs is good. But that fantasy production is ready for pure regression and if he's not a good player there's not much value in redraft once one of Carson and Homer and Hyde return. There's also not much value in dynasty based on his production. Maybe you ride him for another week if Carson doesn't come back. But he didn't do a single thing that was impressive thus his future is dim. Contrast this to handcuffs or valuable backups like Pollard, Snell, Edmonds, Davis, Gus Edwards,
  12. While he had a productive fantasy day with 2 TDs, he looked incredibly mediocre. He never got more yardage than was blocked, didn't display great vision, and wasn't able to make anyone miss. Like last week where he whiffed on a pass block that got Wilson hit, it appears he missed on a run call and went to pass block instead on the goal line. He had 41 yards on 18 rushes and 17 yards on 5 receptions, so 23 touches and 59 yards. That accurately sums up how he looked.
  13. Evans isn't at 100% and hasn't been the entire season. Arians said he's at 80% right now. The concern is he's unhealthy the entire season and is completely TD dependent. Teams are still doubling him a lot, that might change which would open it up more for Evans. Also, Evans won't play in the slot. They tried that, he's not good at it. He doesn't have the skillset. Evans, as good as he is, isn't a versatile WR. He's a big bodied, get vertical type, he's not a crisp route runner.
