WR Martavis Bryant, Toronto Argonauts


Recommended Posts

Haven't been watching the game, but I did see the first pass out the gate was an easy one to Bryant and it just bounced off his hands.

Brown hogging all the targets....has 150 yards in first half.

How do you feel about calculus?

NEWS:   Speaking Thursday, Martavis Bryant declined comment on reports that he is facing another suspension. Advice: "I don’t know nothing about none of that," Bryant said. It's hardly

Earlier in this thread I believe I referred to him having a ten cent head. I may have overestimated that value

Ben is out for "a few weeks" with a a foot sprain. A lot of today was on Bryant IMO, he still saw 7 targets but struggled with drops. I think I'd still rather have Ben under center but at least we know Jones isn't afraid to take shots with Bryant.

Next Gen Stats: Slow WRs behind Packers' woes

Excerpt:

The contrast in weapons for Rodgers and Ben Roethlisberger is stark. Whereas the Packers' receivers struggle to separate from coverage, Steelers wideouts Martavis Bryant and Antonio Brown finished first and second in maximum speed, hitting 22.30 and 21.76 mph, respectively, with the ball in their hands. Essentially an alien in football pads, the 6-foot-4 Bryant generated three of the eight fastest speeds by a ball carrier in Week 10. In addition to combining for 317 yards and three touchdowns, the dynamic duo drew an astounding 141 yards in pass interference penalties versus an overmatched Browns secondary.

One could say there is no starks resemblance in offensive weapons.

I have no concerns at all about starting a healthy Bryant week in and week out. An über stud playing opposite an even bigger uber stud who will always draw the other team's best corner. With an uber stud qb throwing him the rock.

I've sat him the 2 weeks he's blown up and started him the dud week/decent weeks lol

This first week he was back I think week 6 I understand that. Vick was at qb, and we weren't sure exactly how involved he would be in the game plan. There were stretches last year where he was completely ignored as a rookie.

In week 6 I struggled mightily bw martavis and Diggs. Ended up going with martavis. Diggs had a solid game. 129 rec. and did a lot of his damage in the first half. While Bryant was flopping. Then Landry came in and laser focused on Bryant and he exploded for 2 tds I believe. One that was a highlight reel.

After that I knew that this guy is a permanent fixture in my lineups ros unless it's a choice bw him and JULIO, Antonio brown, odb.

Yeah I should have stuck to that. But I didn't really miss the extra 5-10 points (non ppr) however ROS hes not leaving my lineup!

If he was hypothetically caught getting high over the bye week a league implemented suspension would probably be implemented next season correct? Of course that doesn't mean he'd be exempt from team punishment but seeing as how they're fighting for a playoff spot and they need him on the field I'm less worried about the latter.

14 TDs in 16 games now. If he can get his concentration.......

When the game starts to slow down for him, look out. He reminds me so much of an unpolished Randy Moss

There's a lot to love about Bryant, but I see some red flags as well. His height and speed and leaping are off the charts, but he's not physical, doesnt wrestle balls aways from defenders (or prevent them from being stripped out on the way down) and has mental mistakes. I wonder how much of his success is being opposite the best WR in football. Right now, the Steelers can exploit all the best parts of Bryants game. If AB werent there, or Bryant on a different team, his problems with route running, drops, and lack of confidence in him as a possession target might make him very average. That being said, that isnt the position he's in for the forseeable future. I guess my point is we may be seeing Bryants ceiling here, not signs of even bigger things to come. But thats still pretty damned good.
