I was high on him for many years, but he’s never managed to combine health, talent and scheme fit to become fantasy relevant.What's everyone's thoughts on Kaquiski Tartt this season? Seems a bit lower on most rankings than where he could finish.
In the games I have watched Killebrew stood out as being all over the place but I didn't watch many games and when I would go to box scores to follow up he didn't get many snaps. It surprised me. The eye test for me was very good but he doesn't seem to be given consistent enough play time to make him relevant. Maybe the new coaching staff gives him the shot.Killebrew has been as disappointing as Geathers but he hasn't had sever injury issues that interfered with growth. He looked good in limited action but seemed to be benched completely as the season wore on last year. With him "seeing time with LBs" in practice it's certainly a worthwhile stash if you have space, though.
That's the key, especially if it's with him getting snaps in a new role.In the games I have watched Killebrew stood out as being all over the place but I didn't watch many games and when I would go to box scores to follow up he didn't get many snaps.

The good news is he has been promoted on the depth chart.I took Terrell Edmunds, he was super late in my draft, and is clearly not a deep safety. But he might get buried behind Davis or Burnett. Pitt also might have enough opportunity for two decent fantasy S. In general though, I don't want to carry a ton of safeties, and there are too many clear starters with tackle opportunities in the NFL. You can make a strong argument for avoiding PIT situation.
...given an overall preseason grade to date of 38.3, the site says of Edmunds that he “has played 73 of his team’s 130 snaps so far this preseason and has been a useful asset to the run defense, where he ’s produced one tackle and a defensive stop on his 22 run defense snaps”. In spite of that, he “has yet to find his feet in coverage and has allowed seven receptions for 69 yards and two touchdowns from just eight targets in primary coverage”.
If you do scale it back and take a hard look at his results, you do see the negative grading. In the last preseason game alone, he gave up two touchdowns inside the red zone, missed a tackle at the line of scrimmage on a pass into the flat that allowed a 15-yard gain, and got lost on a pick that allowed a 14-yard gain on a basic crossing pattern. He hasn’t really made any impactful plays yet, either.
...The Steelers have essentially already been using him in practice and in games as their number three safety, but that move was confirmed in their most recent official depth chart, now seeing him as a second-team participant behind starters Morgan Burnett and Sean Davis. He started against the Packers with Davis nursing an injury.
From rotoworld....Morgan Burnett.
I only caught highlights, but with the game in a swamp they likely were loading up against the run allowing the wind to be another pass defender. How much was he on the field?I think the Steelers will primarily be in a nickle, which they do a ton of (more then anyone) and Burnett will be a Hybrid LB/S with Edmunds in the more traditional safety spot.
Brice was filling in for Jones, right? Not sure of the long-term value there if that is the case.Kentrell Bryce (s-GB) had a nice little game last night. Flowed to the ball very well and did great helping stop the run. Anybody have snap counts or thoughts on him? I know he was the better looking safety all through camp and favored to win SS spot.
Edit it to add he played all 70 defensive snaps and looks to have been strong safety. https://www.acmepackingcompany.com/by-the-numbers/2018/9/10/17840838/packers-snap-counts-week-1-green-bay-rolls-with-3-wrs-and-6-dbs-all-game-long
From what I have read he isn’t filling in for Jones..he beat him out for that slot during camp and offseason. Norton had that in his preseason week 3 Eyes of the Guru article tooBrice was filling in for Jones, right? Not sure of the long-term value there if that is the case.
Meh. I think Brice played well enough last night to earn the starter designation. Jones was talked about as the incumbent despite the offseason. Injuries create opportunities. As a Jones owner, I was following his situation but there wasn't a ton of chatter in the offseason (which is likely not a good thing).dnurk said:From what I have read he isn’t filling in for Jones..he beat him out for that slot during camp and offseason.

Jones was inactive w ankle injury so maybe it’s more of a timeshare going forward but we will have to monitor.
