    Mostert is is there though.  He will get the first shot and run until the wheels fall off, which admittedly they probably will.  Sermon more of a dynasty value unless you hope for a mostert injury.

     

    Mostert getting the first shot at featureback carries is probably a better scenario for Sermon.  As you mention, I doubt Mostert could last...

     

    A bad scenario would be something like Sermon starts in a split backfield with Mostert as 3rd down back with Elijah Mitchell/Gallman getting mixed in too...

    Historically, hasn’t it always been guessing game (Mostert, Coleman, Breida, Wilson Jr)?

    I just can’t deal with the guessing game.

    I like Trey, though.  May get him as a flier.

     

    Carlos Hyde did get 240 carries in Shanny's first season there.  Maybe it's been a guessing game becauase of the coaching staff, or maybe they've never had "a guy" who can carry the load for 16 games.

    This sure smells of new Lions GM Brad Holmes, who was in the Rams' front office while Gurley was with L.A., doing Gurley a favor. The Lions already have D'Andre Swift headed into his second season and signed Jamaal Williams earlier in the offseason. There's no room for Gurley's broken-down body in this backfield.

     

    As opposed to Adrian Peterson's broken-down body last season?

    Jamaal Williams is very good in pass protection.

    So is Todd Gurley.  

    The Lions front office is trying to tell fantasy players something with their off-season moves, they just can't hear it because a noisy hype train is swiftly roaring through fantasyland.  There might be an edge in figuring it out...

    People get caught in the hype all the time. The unknown is so appealing for some reason.

    Drafting him in the 4th is drafting him as a top 5 TE (likely 4th overall). Basically saying he will have the best rookie TE season of all time. Not saying it’s not possible but drafting him with the expectation of him being the best rookie TE ever seems funny to me.

    It really depends how they use Pitts.  With Julio Jones leaving, it's possible a lot of targets are there for him.   Really all it comes down to is opportunities and if they're going to use him more like a WR.  If he's going to get 100-120 targets, coming close to the TE rookie record (meaningless) is quite possible. 

     

    For a modern comparison, look at Evan Engram his rookie year and think about if he started all 16 games with a better QB and on a better offense.

     

    I'd agree that the fourth round would be early in redraft leagues, but on Fantasy Football Calculator he's going around pick 100 (about round 9-10).  I'd rather get him around pick 100 than some of the other TE's going earlier.

    https://fantasyfootballcalculator.com/players/kyle-pitts

     

    If you're getting him that late, he's a good pick with the information we have right now.

    Even true generational prospects like Barkley and Megatron weren’t drafted anywhere near that expectation.

     

    Saquon was getting drafted around pick 1.07, sometimes higher in his rookie year and he was worth it.  Tight ends are a whole different ballgame, and Saquon was a much better RB prospect than Pitts is at TE and positional scarcity and volume at RB makes them much more valuable.  

     

    Long story short, I'd gladly take Pitts at pick 100 today...I wouldn't even think about it around pick 40-50.  Right now I wouldn't consider any TE that early other than Kelce.

    @Iron-cock clear your inbox, or I can't send you any offers for earth-scorching trades.

    (This one's good, trust me)

    It was actually a pretty huge trade that would have worked out well for both sides if the stars aligned.  I just didn't feel like rolling the dice on it.

    @DerrickHenrysCleats literally turbocharges the value of Alabama players to a point where any owner would think about drafting them specifically for the purpose of trading  straight back to him...😂

    For the most part he gets the good ones and leaves me with the Belichick drafted ones.  Solid strat.

    I guess we will never know. I couldn’t even get an offer from you. Perhaps you were still basking In the glory of taking Julio from me for Derrick Henry 😉

    I told you way back then that I thought Henry had all the talent in the world, which is why I drafted him.   Dumb coaches just kept putting him in timeshares early in his career.  First Mularkey and then  Vrabel in his first year as HC stuck Henry in a timeshare.  I'm not mad about trading for Julio (it's Julio).  It's annoying that two NFL head coaches thought it was a good idea to stick a 250 pound RB that runs a 4.54 in a timeshare, one of them with a guy who was 195 pounds and ran a 4.57...it's like "Hey coach, what pace are you changing?"   You are making your player at that position 50 pounds smaller and slower?  Great plan!

     

    EDIT:  Plus none of it beats the time you had Henry on your bench and he went off.  😄  

    You are DerrickHenrysCleats, you can't have him on your bench!
