  1. So this opportunity doesnt scream of the chance to do good? *Behind a great OLine. *Little Proven talent anywhere around him. *Headcase as his competition. *Great complementary weapons in Romo, Dez and Witten *Fewer 8 and sometimes even 9 man boxes. *Playing with the lead more often. *Coming off a healthy season. *Jerry loves him. *Probably the most hungry RB set to prove a point in the NFL.
  2. This is a non story, but a hammy tweak on June 4th is? Dont make it so obvious you own Randle. I own Randle and do not own DMC, DMC still worries me as a Randle owner.
  3. So that just means he was worse than what people believe. In my league he finished as the 36th RB, behind players like Richardson, Denard Robinson, Knile Davis, Oliver and Andre Williams. These are players who didn't play every game or were third down backs. That's not good. I think he will do better this year but not by a whole lot. I have him projected as my RB33. McFadden was a RB on a team with a bad coach, bad OLine and a rookie QB with no WRs. SUCCESS!
  4. You trust this guy to stay out of trouble and/or keep his mouth shut? Isnt a suspension coming soon too?
  5. The panic over injuries in June is always funny. It must be the thing to do around here.
  6. So you mean an athletic freak is still an athletic freak even with Wilson as his QB? I'm floored. They threw him a ton of passes in the RZ, I guess you can say I'm equally as floored that the teams play callers are utilizing the athletic freak the way he should. From the article: Graham averaged 138 targets per year during his past four seasons in New Orleans, where the three-time Pro Bowler was the favorite target of quarterback Drew Brees. Seeing routine double coverage, Graham relied on his dominant 6-foot-7 frame to win matchups. "I know I'm probably not going to get targeted 130 times," Graham said of his new team. "But that's not my concern; I just want to win games. And I know there will be times -- big moments in a game -- where I'm going to have to go out there and make a play. That's what I'm focusing on." So he cant produce like an athletic freak in the redzone because of that?

  8. Stud. Starting weekly with confidence. He gets the tough yards without taking punishment.
  9. USA Will get 2022 and you may see Portugal/Spain or Belgium/Netherlands will get it in 2018. USA is going to use its card it just got from saving the world of soccer to pull it out of Russia and Qatar based of human rights.
  10. Tannehill has all the weapons he needs now he should be able to put the season a top pick like him should put together.
  11. He will have more value during season then he does now as people see he is the #2 in a McAdoo offense that is getting rolling in year 2. Donnell, Cruz and ODB dealing with injuries? Under the radar for sure.
  12. Has the consensus ever been wrong? Plenty. But you go back and look at how well it turns out for you when you take a 28-year old RB1 in the 1st round of a dynasty start-up, historically. I judge the player on their own merits, not the merits of players who are not them. I do not judge Peterson, Lynch or Charles based off other 28 year old RBs. If you do, thats your own choice. Look at how many actually defied the over 28 logic, so its not as uncommon as it seems. Basically its a narrative because so many players fall out before 28 anyways. No, it's a narrative because the percentages play out that way. If anything, you're cherry picking a few current names to support your case, it's totally anecdotal. What if we were having this conversation a few years ago about Rice, MJD, Turner, SJax? See, I can do it as well, it means nothing. You are a huge Charles believer, that's fine. But part of being a good dynasty owner is knowing when the numbers disagree with your gut and deciding what to do about that. For instance, if I think for some reason that Agholor is a lock to be a top-8 WR. That's fine, but I just factor that feeling into a larger, smarter thought process that includes all the other factors as well. I don't just blow my load and draft him in the 1st or 2nd of a dynasty start-up based on what I think my eyes see, that's just throwing away value. Are you comparing Rice, Turner, MJD and SJax (All Built differently) to Charles, a career 5.5 ypc RB? Smarter thought process indeed.

  14. Has the consensus ever been wrong? What was the consensus on Peterson a few years back? They were done? Couldnt come back from injury? How about how the consensus said Lynch would retire. So yes, thank god for the consensus. The blind consensus is the problem with fantasy football, it prevents so much individual thinking. Now instead of people drafting Charles because he is a stud, people say, well I cant take him ahead of McCoy, because the consensus says so. People let the consensus tell them what to do so much.
  15. Taking anyone over Gronk, you goofedProbably. I own Gronk in four out of my other five leagues, so trust me, I'm a fan and understand the advantage.Sorry to interrupt the Evans thread, but I'm curious who went top 4 before you? Obj, bell, luck, Julio?Yup. Been a surprising 1st round, which I contributed to with the Evans pick:1. Luck 2. Julio 3. Beckham 4. Bell 5. Evans 6. Lacy 7. Dez 8. Gronk 9. Antonio 10. Graham 11. DT 12. Green 2.1 Calvin Couple weird picks. 4 PT/passing TD's, not TE premium and............................. where did J. Charles get taken?? What did of a guppy draft is this?It doesn't look like a guppy draft to me. I don't agree with all the picks but don't find any of them shocking. You know this is a dynasty league right? Charles isn't in my top 12 eitherLooks like the definition of a guppy draft, A QB first overall without another even in the first, Two 2nd year WRs going top 5 ahead of proven studs like Dez, Green and Thomas who are all still young. Charles not in the first round, I dont care if he is 28 he is a RB god when he is on the field.
  16. https://www.google.com/webhp?sourceid=chrome-instant&ion=1&espv=2&ie=UTF-8#q=leveon%20bell%20lis%20franc Early reports were that he had the dreaded lisfranc, but from what i remember it ended up not being one. He dodged a career ending bullet. You really like the word "dreaded."
  17. Seems like most people are reading this the same way. If you mean "McCoy should be among the leaders at RB in total touches this year" just say that and no one will likely argue it too much. Personally, I think that the workload is a given. I'm far more interested / concerned with McCoy himself -- he wasn't the same guy, at all, in 2014 vs 2013. Why? Also, he is moving from a really good offense to what has been a pretty crappy one, so more safeties in the box, less TD opportunity, fewer sustained drives. How will the passing down work be split up between Jackson and McCoy? The short yardage between Dixon & McCoy? Those are far more interesting to me, and will likely determine McCoy's value. His floor is going to be borderline RB1 / RB2 regardless. His ceiling and chances of getting there are what I'd rather look at. Strange fact about McCoy. He had 97 more carries than Lamar Miller, and only 220 more yards while finishing with less points too in standard PPR. Volume does not equal production for what its worth.
  18. Based off? Jerry Jones. Jerry Jones does not provide the talent. Unless he is overly good with his medical staff. And their protocols. And ftr I see 6 or 7 of the top 15 backs as being previously knocked based on talent "estimations". Not knocking his talent, just asking what are you basing him being a star on. Jerry Jones, talent estimations? Give me something to hang my hat on. Dont say the Dallas OLine, because if thats the case McFadden, can do the same. So, what has anyone seen that makes them believe a guy who makes bad life choices someone who will make good choices when he sees the holes?

  20. I like Reeds talent, not his health. Paul? His talent is nothing special. The hype train is funny. Why is it the backup to anyone is always hyped like they are the next big star when they get a break because of injury? As someone said, he is 6'1" and 240. So he is a short fat TE. He isnt any special talent and he plays for the skins? Am I missing something?
