  4. What I'm failing to understand is all the negativity around Fournette's role. Is it from bitter ROJO owners, or people who are "burned" by fournette? If people would zoom out, is it really hard to believe that the team and coach did almost everything they could do bring competition in for ROJO, and find reasons not to play him or start him? Now they landed on a potential bellcow that can probably do everything better than Rojo since he's not on a good team...why wouldn't Arians give Fournette 70% of the workload? That would make him a round 2 or 3 pick...no question. It's far more likely

  6. I really don't understand the people down on Fournette's talent or talking like he's some JAG following literally the best statistical season of his career--and his healthiest. Nearly 1.7k combined yards with 76 catches and a career-high in YPC at 4.3 playing behind one of the worst offensive lines in the league. The only thing he didn't do is score touchdowns, which you would expect him to do on a better team. The Jags released him because they are tanking the season and will save every nickel they can in salary, but let's not act like Fournette is Trent Richardson. Despite his release from t

  7. Think this bodes very well for Hunt’s value even when Chubb is still healthy. Hunt may be in line for more every down work than we may have thought as you don’t pay a second string RB this type of money in 2020 unless you are committed to using him as more than a pass catcher and switch up to your main guy. Very interested to see the sharing of the load between Hunt and Chubb now.

  8. No, he's not small. And he doesn't have an injury "history". He suffered a bad knee injury at the end of his college career. People in Washington are actually excited about what he could possibly contribute, if he gets right. Trust me, it's a bad take. But not quite as bad as your earlier take "Gibson is definitely better runner between the tackles than Barber". I have no dog in the fight, and am actually excited about Gibson as a Redskins fan. But you're all over the place, just trying to talk yourself and everyone else into loving him for fantasy

  11. RB ZACK MOSS, UTAH In each of the last three seasons, Zack Moss has been one of college football’s best ball carriers. He ranked among the 15 best running backs in PFF rushing grade over that time, topping out in 2019 with the game's third-best rushing grade. Moss was as difficult as anyone to bring down, with the 10th-most yards after contact per attempt (4.45) and second-most broken tackles (89). One area Moss had to improve on in 2019 was his receiving ability, and he did just that by catching 28 of his 31 targets and averaging 14.5 yards after catch per reception, breaking 15 tack

  14. Easy like that: RoJo will get the chance to take the lead. If he shows that he is good he will stay the leadback... i dont give a f--- what LF owners write here... its up to RoJo and i believe in him.

  15. It’s funny how at this time last year, JAG Montgomery was viewed as a great rookie RB pick in the second or third due to “opportunity.” Now with Gibson, we are faced with a rookie RB with better draft capital, better physical attributes, a better modern NFL skillset, and a guy who was not just gifted a role, but actually earned it by sending a HoFer’s bags packing, and people think 5th round ADP is going overboard. Gibson is so obviously going to be the lead running back and receive 15-20 touches week one, some people just have to see it to believe it though, I guess.

  19. Fournette isn't good tho lol. He had a lower PFF grade than RoJo last year even though both were mediocre. Bunch of people who don't know much and just think someone who was drafted high and is a big name is a good player. Now like I said RoJo wasn't great last year either but he has more room to grow than Fournette. I'd definitely rather have RoJo.

  21. Who said he would overtake Chase tho.. not I. If something serious befalls Drake, not just missing a game or two. Then this turns into a 50-50 timeshare. But I’m confident Drake plays a full 16 and goes berserk mode. Same goes for Kyler Murray & DHop. Bullish like crazy on the Cardinals 2020 campaign.

  23. https://www.pff.com/news/draft-college-football-2020-nfl-draft-superlatives-running-backs SLEEPER: ANTONIO GIBSON, MEMPHIS Honorable Mentions: Raymond Calais, Louisiana & James Robinson, Illinois State I’m not sure how many are still sleeping on Gibson after he posted a 4.39-second 40-yard dash time while weighing 228 pounds at the Combine. With only 78 touches in his Memphis career, though, Gibson still qualifies. It’s not only that he can run fast, but also that he’s a nightmare to bring down. On those 78 touches, he broke 33 tackles and averaged 11.2 yards per carry

  24. To start this interview with Bruce Arians after signing Fournette, they're talking about Fournette: "...when you can get a player of that caliber..." "I got great reviews from people that know him and people that coached him, so he'll fit right in, and we'll see what role happens and how fast it can happen, but Rojo's our guy and uh, so it's just, Shady's ready for his role, so it's just going to be just building roles as we go along, but having enough quality players to finish this thing." in response to all the negative things reported about Fournette: "N

  25. Steelers fan here... I expect that Snell will be the lead back in Pittsburgh if Conner goes down. And I don't think we have to wait too long for that to happen. Snell had a very good camp and looked good with the limited touches last year. Also, last year he had surgery during the season before he got the bulk of carries. That alone shows the trust the team has in Snell. Yes, at that point there wasn't that much competition as practice squad running backs also got some carries, but Samuel isn't a threat and as long as with McFarland you have to wait, but I don't think he is lead back material

  26. Not surprising that Fournette the team cancer would immediately throw his former QBs under the bus. Bortles had to regularly line him up in the right position bc he didn’t bother to learn the playbook, and Foles is only the guy who beat Brady to win SB MVP. The time for talk will soon end.

  27. How about 6,581 all purpose yards from JT in 3 years? That's 6th all time for rush yards in FBS history and the only one above him that did it in less than 4 years was Ricky Williams. How about 6.7 YPC in the Big Ten versus 6.2 for Marlon Mack in the American conference? Maybe JT's 21 touchdowns last year would tell you something. What about JT being sandwiched in between Derrick Henry and LaDanian Tomlinson for the single season rush record? Or the second round draft pedigree in an era where the best free agent crop of RBs maybe of all time is approaching. Of course M

  28. I just think Taylor is immensely talented. While Mack is a good back, Taylor will be a great one. Taylor is bigger, faster, stronger, and more elusive. While I don't expect Mack, to simply disappear. I do expect Taylor to have 70% of the Colts backfield, by week five. Taylor wasn't a need, yet the Colts moved up in round 2, to grab him. I tend to think, that's a mighty strong endorsement. With the signing of Rivers, the Colts are clearly win now mode. I cannot see them not utilizing the more talented talented back. I could be wrong. Would only be the 4,753rd time.

  30. I haven't read everyone else's posts...but am I the only one whose holding up a "lightly colored" red flag? or at least yellow flag? I don't understand why this guy is going so high in drafts. I understand the talent, the upside, the skill-set. What I don't understand is why he is going so high when Mack is still there. Do people think that Mack is just going to magically disappear? Mack is still only 24 years old, is coming off his best season where, had he played the 2 games he missed, he probably would've finished with a 260-1,200-9 line. YPC were a little down, but 4.

  35. I think this is exactly what AP was referring to. Pony has always been a term for two-back formations. The one thing that still has me wondering is what he means by saying they "really want one main guy to do it." Obviously two RBs in the backfield needs more than just Gibson. I'm assuming that they mean that Gibson will always be one of the two in that formation, and then will use one of the other three as his complement, depending on down and distance.

  37. Tatis's big rookie year came with a lot of extreme luck. He outperformed the under-the-hood numbers by a fair margin. That's the biggest reason he was red-flagged. There was no reason to expect a repeat, much less an improvement over 2019. If anything a course-correction was in order. Robert is a different case. He has not been the recipient of the same sort of luck. His xSLG is actually 50 points higher than his actual slugging %. He's also already making adjustments month to month. Just 8 BB vs 39 SO in his first 27 games; 6 and 10 in the 12 games since. He's gotten his O-Swing % below

  38. So, let me get this straight, I shouldn't draft the most talented back on the #2 rushing offense in the league after a breakout year/contract extension because Jerrick Mckinnon, who hasn't taken a meaningful snap since 2018, might catch passes and steal some 3rd down work. ...really? Is that it? Because any less risk and we'd be talking about a top 30 pick, which he isn't.

  41. Smythe is the starting TE and was listed so most of last year. Gesicki only played in-line about 150+ snaps to Smythe's 350+. Gesicki played most of his snaps in the slot or split. At least that's was two really smart guys on Twitter told me. Semantics I believe since we really want Mike to keep playing in the slot. Frankly I'd be worried if Miami was trying something else.

  42. This guy is going to win owners the ship this year. Always been a big fan of his, was STOKED when he finally got the chance last year. The guy has averaged 6.0 YPC over his entire career, the dude is a monster. Tevin Coleman seems like an after-thought now...He's been given chances, on both ATL and SF, and hasn't really done anything with it... Mostert should be in line for 15-20 carries per game, and DONT SLEEP on him as a receiver out of the backfield. Wouldn't be surprised to see him reel in 20-30 catches this season. At his current draft position, this guy feels like an
