  6. The top fantasy rookies for this season will likely be Jacobs and Montgomery. Murray has a chance to be relevant in 1 QB leagues (obviously will be in 2 QB leagues). Sanders, Singletary & Henderson could also carve out a fantasy relevant role at RB. There will be a few more fantasy relevant RBs, mainly guys who get shots due to injury or get some pass catching usage. I'm betting on Pollard to be one of those pass catchers. Hill and perhaps Dare O. (I know he's not a rookie but he's never touched the ball on offense so I always think of him as such) are also on that list. Mattison

  11. It's not hard to predict what will happen here. Literally it's the same logic and reasoning for ANY other starting RB: RB "X" has starting position RB "X" will retain starting position unless hurt or poor performance RB "Y" won't start unless either happens to RB "X" in second bullet point Stop having wet dreams about Darwin being the clean cut RB1 of the team just because you drafted him. It won't happen unless Damien is hurt or plays like garbage. For those who need a reminder:

  13. Bunch of armchair neckbeards whose coworkers don't all have severe head trauma comparing guaranteed and non-guaranteed contracts to their own experiences. "Just like me and you", eh? Not so much. You can moan about how players get paid too much money (hint: they make the NFL way more than they get in salary, so you'd be wrong), but they should all be able to provide their families some sort of financial security if they have a career-ending injury when they're 25, not just get cut and be left with nothing.

  17. I'll preface this by saying that I'm unlikely to even have a chance to draft Damien where I'm picking in my drafts, so don't have much skin in the game. There are legit reasons for optimism. The end of last season to start. If everything goes according to plan, he should be a RB1 easy with top 5 potential. He looked great in that high scoring Chiefs offense. But, there are legit reasons for caution/skepticism too. He's never had more than 50 carries in a season (good news: he's never had less than 20 catches either). He's only missed 5 games in a 5 year career, but we don't kno

When you look at most of the top O-lines in the business, they have a strong nucleus that have been together. Obviously free agency and injuries may derail that, but for the most part, these groups like Dallas, NO, Steelers, Pats, Ravens are always residents at the top of the list because they have that nucleus and are able to plug and play minimally year over year.

  20. Nobody honors contracts in the NFL, it goes both ways so why should the players have to? This concept baffles me. The only difference is the owners can instantly void a contract, the players can't. In terms of being able to 'make due' that's laughable. Any of you guys who felt underpaid would do the same thing, which in the real world equates to quiting and finding a new job. The fact is 99% of people in the USA can 'make due' with less than what they make but we still want to be fairly compensated. Football players aren't any different.

  21. Chardo I think we have to take your fantasy card, he had 3 carries of 5 plus yards, 1 was a 12 yard run, he had people miss on more than half his touches and he never lost yards, plus he caught both passes. JAG are you trolling? The guy is coming off a serious injury and you think Peterson is still in his 20's. After thinking more about this ya I revoke you fantasy card.

  22. I agree with the comments posted so far. Along with that, I'm an advocate for all leagues having passing TD's worth 6 points. To me, it doesn't make sense to have touchdowns worth different points per player. A TD is 6 points when it happens in a game, and a TD should be worth 6 points to every player that the TD is credited to. And anything that makes quarterbacks a little more valuable in fantasy is a good thing. Quarterbacks are by far the most valuable position in sports, so I don't get why the fantasy community by and large accepts quarterbacks being a relative afterthought.

  23. As mentioned, I'm not sure the coaching situation is great here. WCJr played 13 minutes in a game last season and Boylen said "You learn by sitting too." Yes WCJr wasn't playing great that game, but I get the sense Boylen is from that old school of thought where instead of letting rookies learn on the fly and reviewing mistakes post-game, he'll pull them out, chew them out, and make them scared to make the mistake again. Maybe it works, but not great for fantasy value. Another negative, Boylen also doesn't utilize his players' skills yet. Shades of Thibs and other passing bigs in t

  24. Didn't read the article, don't need to, we have this discussion every year. Yes, QB value goes up in 6pt Passing Leagues. Not only relative to other QB competition, but it also means QB total points will now account for a larger percentage of your team's weekly and yearly output, so the effect they have on your weekly W/L will be greater, therefor increasing their overall value respective of alternate players on draft day. Running QB value's drop as their 6pt TDs for rushing are completely negated, and QBs who throw for 35+ will get a noticeable jump. That doesn't automatica

  25. The people that owned Fournette are the ones that are the most incorrect in this thread as a lot of their posts are based on personal bias. You can count on one hand how much early down backs can run complex routes. As for watching him play, I’ve watched tape of him out of curiosity due to people acting like he’s some average back. I thought maybe I’m missing something. Dude is a top 5 runner in the league. His combination of power and speed is Zeke and Barkley like. 16 games of Fournette is a guaranteed top 5 finish. You can also spare me the YPC argument.

  26. He’s basically free because he sucks. As someone who is forced to watch Stafford s--- the bed week after week, it’s not hard fo believe that no one wants to draft him. He’s not good. Calvin Johnson made him looked decent because CJ was a stud on his own. Stafford sucks and if you draft him, good riddance.

  29. I listened to the wise posters here at RW, followed the Bears offseason, watched the preseason highlights and read the beat writers practice reports, and changed my mind. That, and when I made that post back on April 28th, there were still singe marks all over me from getting burned by Nagy's misuse of Jordan Howard.

  30. Every year I try to get one guy who has great dependent variables. 2 years ago it was Gurley/Hunt, last year it was Mixon, this year it has to be Cook. Kubiak + old school HC + year 2 post ACL + improved OL. Logic game says draft Cook.

  34. I assume you missed the 30 yard run that got called back on a holding call? Or the 8 yard run also called back? People read this thread to hear legit interpretation of what people see with their eyes, not for you to copy/paste a box score. Sony looked great to me, don't own him anywhere, likely won't due to his ADP vs my Draft Spot(s) this weekend, but for anyone who wants unbiased opinion from someone who watched with their own eyes, Sony looked damn good.

  38. Got burned by him last year. And I'm back on the train this year. His situation this year is drastically better – QB, attitude, stronger defense, Yeldon cut, etc. Since I liked him enough to draft him at the 1/2 turn last year, why not this year in a better situation and at a better price? Look, I get the injury and behavior concerns. But predicting injuries and suspensions in fantasy is nearly impossible. Crazy, unpredictable s--- happens all the time. I'd rather take the guy who is guaranteed for production when he's on the field. Also, he looks a little bit trimmer t

  45. Except Andy Reid had a long track record of his offense producing RB1s. Charcandrick West and Spencer Ware had produced as such in the prior years. Even then, Hunt needed absolutely huge performances to finish where he did, and there was still that midseason lull. Hunt was also the clear feature back after Ware's injury. I took him mid-3rd that year because he was the clear #1, not 1a or possible starter, and was pretty much guaranteed 15+ touches/game. Conversely, Nagy has a 1 year track record of frustrating, and split, RB usage. His offense spread the ball around. Where Hunt step
