  1. Just let him wear this and be done

  2. We are all just repeating the same thing over and over at this point lol. If hunt scares you stay away. If you want to take the risk on him being the #1RB for at least 10 weeks then you better get him first round because he isn’t sliding at this point.

  4. This is pretty simple guys. Don’t overthink it. If I’m able to get Chubb in my draft, the coaches would be idiots to have Hunt spell him when he’s beasting. If I’m not able to get Chubb in my draft, the coaches would be idiots to not give Hunt at least 40-50% of the RB touches when he’s eligible.

  5. Sleepers and Break Out Candidates for Fantasy Basketball in 2019-2020 Here are my initial breakout candidates and sleepers for 2019-2020. D – Dynasty target: Some of these players might be roadblocked to start the season. However, they present a lot of upside and could start pushing the incumbents for playing time after a few months, see an increased role as soon as they show they’re up for it, or see increased playing time late in the season. B – Breakout candidate: These players all have a chance to break out this season. Be it due to increased playing time, increased tou

  6. Last year, once acclimated, Josh Gordon averaged 12.4 PPG with the Patriots. (Week 6-15) Some players in his range: Jarvis Landry, 13.4PPG, 5th round ADP Calvin Ridley, 13.1PPG, 5th round ADP Tyler Lockett, 13.8PPG, 5th round ADP 6th Round: Robby Anderson(11.5ppg), Kristian Kirk(10.3ppg), Alshon Jeffery(14.3ppg), DJ Moore(10.2ppg) 7th Round: AR15(11.9), Fuller(15.2ppg), Pettis(11.5ppg), C.Samuel(11.6ppg) When you consider this, plus the gaping hole in the NE passing game, combined with the elite talent/potential of Josh Gordon, saying 8th/9th round, is laughable, unle

  7. I mean yeah guys, I agree, but contrary to popular belief this isn't a Lakers fan forum: I'm asking about fantasy predictions. Some of us are drafting soon, so any insight could be helpful. "I'm a Lakers fan and I don't like this" isn't super helpful on this forum, you know...

  11. Huge Braves and Acuna fan and it was absolutely the right call on Snitker's part. Not only was the watching and trot to first ridiculous, a huge opportunity was missed to have runners on 2nd and 3rd with no outs and Albies up. Plus Fried was battling his tail off against the best hitters in baseball and didn't need that buzzkill of an inning. Luckily Braves won and I think this little incident will wind up being a positive for Acuna and the team in the long run.

  13. I'm a diehard Browns fan. And I'm all too familiar with the "this will be the year Pittsburgh declines because they lost a good player" argument. All I know is, they did just fine going from: Jerome Bettis to Willie Parker to Reshard Mendenhall to Levon Bell to (part time) DeAngelo Williams to James Conner They do the same thing at WR. Hines Ward, Plaxico Burress, Santonio Holmes, Mike Wallace, Antonio Brown, JuJu Smith-Schuster Pittsburgh has a very successful system of continuity. Maybe this is the year that breaks down and they change it up. I'll acknowledge that possi

  15. Really surprised there isnt more buzz surrounding this kid. 4 outings so far, 2 of which against elite teams in MIN and NYY, and all 4 being QS, only allowing 4 ER in 24 innings. Was very nervous for him against the bombers but, aside from letting up 8 hits, held them to only 2 runs. Pretty impressive stuff.

  16. By this logic, the Saints must not think very highly of Alvin Kamara, because they gave Adrian Peterson more carries before they traded him away? We all know how that worked out. Tyler Lockett is incredibly talented and I've been on this train since he came into the league. My league does give 20:1 bonuses for return yards, so he holds (in the past) a lot more value to me than standard leagues, I understand that. I've never been a fan of Doug Baldwin, I think Lockett has much more potential than Baldwin. The Seahawks have never been a throw first team, trying to use that as a

  19. When Matthew berry says to not count Damien Williams out, and has him ranked 12th overall among rbs, I think it's time to invest heavily into Mr. Thompson ......I always do the opposite of what berry says and it works out for me, he's usually late to the party

  20. It's also been noted earlier in the thread that the Falcons have 13 indoor games this season. Historically, Matt Ryan has been much better indoors. Part of that may be at least half his games in a season are at home to begin with, but either way, he's got the 13 games this season. I then took a look at the splits for Ridley and Julio last year. Despite Ryan being better indoors, Julio was actually better fantasy-wise in ATL's 7 outdoor games last season... Julio Jones

  24. Items that play in Darwin's favor: 1. Andy Reid doesn't give a rat's butt about anything but performing on the field and performing well. 2. Look at this kid's body! He is stout af! Last player I have seen come out of the draft that is this stout was Kamara (Kamara is a legit monster of a man sooo the comparison has to be taken in context). 3. He uses that body well. Blocks, throws shoulders while running....grinds through runs. This kid is a headache for opposing defenses 4. This might be the most important item of all - he seems like a really top notch type of guy. L

  26. Good point. I’m sure Freddie Kitchens and Todd Monken will take Nick Chubb’s fantasy ADP into consideration while deciding how to deploy Kareem Hunt.

  29. Carson is AMAZING value where he's being drafted rn , especially on a run first team with an elite QB. Just gotta handcuff him with Penny , which is a must in my opinion.

  30. Turns out that I can't edit picks on Yahoo, so we'll just have to keep track of things manually. I will put this same post on the league site, but here's what I have for 2020 draft pick trades as of now. @Iron-cock 3rd to @Du5t3r (traded for pick 41 of 2018 draft on 7/3/18) @JMak 1st to @vikingapocalypse (traded to KennyWoo with Cousins for Luck/Carr on 5/10/19; traded to vikingapocalypse with 1.10 for 1.04 on 8/1/19) @JMak 3rd to @Du5t3r (traded to KennyWoo with Cousins for Luck/Carr on 5/10/19; traded to vikingapocalypse with another 2020 3rd for 3.04 on 8/5/19; traded to Du5

  32. I'm a big believer that the team makes the RB and not the other way around. If Pollard goes HAM again in the third game, I'd think long and hard about paying Zeke. Same with LA, same with Pittsburgh. Good O-lines can make anyone a star.

  34. Completely agree. No true Centre on the heat has ever played 30+ minutes for Coach Spo except for Whiteside the year he averaged 17 and 14 but Mike Gallagher won't tell you that. Yes Bam is talented but I heard the same depth chart argument with Allen last year. Everyone argued that there is nobody behind Allen so there will be no reason he doesn't play 28-30 mpg and guess what, he only played 26mpg. Even an expectation of 16 and 10 with 30mpg is fairly unrealistic when you look at the entire NBA landscape. Ayton averaged 16 and 10 in 31mpg and he is no where near Ayton offensively. If yo

  35. People actually paying other people to tell them how to draft or play their fantasy games? Unreal. The whole point of fantasy sports is to create your own team. Your Fantasy team, hence the name. Reading articles and getting breaking news from these insiders definitely will put you at an advantage. But paying a lot of money for them though, is just pathetic. Went off a tangent there. Back to topic, DJ definitely my favorite RB in real life and fantasy to watch this year. 1,000 catching yards 1,000 running yards was his goal before injuries, I think he’ll have a chance to do that this yea

  36. Impossible to draft him this season and maybe beyond. Cam Newton is now a Vegan since this offseason, he will throw less far and have less energy as the season goes on. You telling me eating lettuce and beans will work ? Dude will have brain fog between snaps Vegan = more prone to injury and spaghetti arms Sucks for Samuel

  43. 81% catch rate probably wont happen again but i can definitely see over 100 targets this year. A steal in the 5th considering he was the ~16th ranked WR last year with only 70 targets.

  45. Very much a guy I'm targeting in later rounds with the potential to replicate top 50-ish value from 2 years ago when fully healthy. Just reading the comments on this thread (e.g. the one right above my post) and considering some of the awful low-ball offers I'm gotten in a few of my dynasties, his value is at its lowest point so he should be easy to get quite late in drafts.
