  1. Decent question. My thoughts would change significantly, but I would still like Cooks. Tyrod Taylor has been proclaimed by this forum as a 'death sentence for WR production' my initial response is... prove it. Due to recency bias people will default to the 3 games with CLE in '18. However Week 1 Jarvis Landry got 15 targets catching 7 of them for 106 yards. Maybe people point to Josh Gordon, but with the power of hindsight, it seems like Josh Gordon just isn't Flash without the drugs, as he never returned to form with any QB, including Brady and Russ. Hard to point the finger at T
  2. Let's start with a refresher of what Brandin Cooks has done, in his 7 years as an NFL WR, with 4 different teams, and 4 different QBs. While also reminding people that despite 7 years in the NFL, he is just 27 years old, and has missed only 3 games in his last 6 seasons combined. *PPR Scoring 2014 - Rookie Season, 10 games, 13.9PPG, whatever. (NO) 2015 - 129/84/1140/9, 15.9PPG, 253 Fantasy Points (NO) 14th Overall 2016 - 117/78/1173/8, 15.4PPG, 246 Fantasy Points (NO) 11th Overall 2017 - 114/65/1082/7, 13.7PPG, 219 Fantasy Points (NE) 15th Overall 2018 - 117/80/1204/5, 15.2PPG
  3. I'm with josh. Low end WR2 with weekly upside, who I don't want as anymore than a flex player. At his current 6th round price, as the 26th WR off the board, I think that's fair value. BUT, the reality is that once he's healthy, once he makes a single highlight catch in camp or preseason, the hype of prime OBJ will jump him 2 rounds. I don't think Baker is good, it's a run, run, and run again team, with a top tier defense, which isn't a recipe for a lot of WR fantasy success. Combined with his tantrums, diva nature, and soft tissue history, I'm just not interested in using a pick in the fir
  4. He won't be on my team in any snake drafts, but he likely goes for $1 in an auction league and I might take him as a lotto backup. Regardless, what I wanted to say was that this seems like an odd take. Arguing against the rookie aspect, I'm 100% on board with, and we're in agreement. But arguing against the Falcons TE production based on their 2 stud WRs... seems bassackwards given the long history of... ATL having 2 stud WRs AND a stud TE. Last year isn't really a fair assessment, because A: Julio was MIA for half the season B: Hurst isn't of the Pitts pedigree. But, Austin Hoope
  5. I agree with your mentality, in that historically rookie TEs have a very low success rate and he'll likely be over drafted, but using 1,000 yards as your baseline of success is ridiculous. If I could guarantee you 1000 yards from a TE, you would draft them in the top 2 rounds. In 2017 Evan Engram was a top 5 TE in his rookie season, with 722 yards. It feels like there is far more hype around Pitts and I'd argue the situation/offense is significantly better for TE production, so I can see hype pushing him to the 6th, but I'd be surprised. I'm expecting 8th round by labor day. Assum
  6. My strategy is to draft Darren Waller and forget about the position until the bye week.
  7. Scoring format matters. Everything below is relative to 1PPR. While I've loved having Robinson this year, he's not a top 5 RB for 2021. What I'm most interested in, is why you're ranking Henry ahead of him though as a foregone conclusion? The 2 of them are neck and neck in points, Robinson with the better floor and more consistent player, while Henry has the higher ceiling, but is much more volatile. Job security, workload, and track record are valid arguments. If you put J.Rob and D.Henry's weekly scores side by side, 90% of this forum is picking the stat lines of J.Rob, so why
  8. There's a Twitter picture circulating today comparing Metcalf's first 27 games to Megatron's. https://twitter.com/SportsCenter/status/1333788464408526850 I just want you all to know, that I didn't let our lord and savior down:
  9. He's no Josh Gordon, but... pretty good nonetheless.
  10. All you did was regurgitate the points I made, but offered them in a fashion that makes it seem like you're disputing my standpoint, when in reality you are supporting everything I said. 1) I say he doesn't have #1 upside, because that is the discussion I had previously in this thread and posters lost their mind. Cook vs Henry was a very real decision on draft day and if you've followed this thread, it's the conversation we were debating at that time. Cleats can pretend 'how far we've come' but he's still just trolling. He knows what was said, he's just pandering to the crowd to avoid
  11. But... he doesn't get receptions. This is why the (those of us who are reasonable) mentioned that Henry doesn't have #1 RB upside in PPR. I'm not kidding when I say, that if Alvin Kamara takes the rest of the season off, Henry might not catch him (or Cook) before Week 16. He's not even in the discussion or tier of true PPR elite backs. Marshawn Lynch is the best 'fantasy' comparable to him. Lynch was a stud, perennial top 10 RB, beast of a 'real' NFL player, and absolute joy to watch play... but he was NEVER in the discussion for #1 RB overall. Henry shares all of those same traits. Mos
  12. It's a sin curve actually. 10 point WR's are a dime a dozen. 10 point RBs are starters this time of the season. So, if he is scoring 'low end WR numbers' like 10 a week, with a TD jumping them to 16, suddenly he's a low end RB2 with potential to be a high end RB2. I'll add 2 names no one wants to hear, as speculative adds. Sony Michel, 25% owned, cleared from Covid/IR, and Burkhead just went down. Hold and see how the backfield shakes out. AJ Green, 49% owned, maybe his career is over, but a new QB can be life changing for receivers, you never know who they're going t
  13. Only if you ignore the 6 people ahead of him. Stop it. Fulgam has played 5 games so far, total of 95.6 fantasy points, averaging 19.3 points per game. Devante Adams, in just his last 3 games alone (Wk 7, 8, & 9) has already scored 108.2 fantasy points, and on his 6 games of the season, is averaging 28.1 points per game. Mentioning these 2 in the same sentence is a joke. Fulgam is a solid WR2, but keep an eye on how the team handles Alshon Jeffrey moving forward. This week shouldn't be too much of a concern, but keep an eye on snap counts, who gets the call in 2 wid
  14. This forum loves to hate Brandin Cooks, has for 5 years. Since Bill O'Brien was fired, Cooks has averaged: (Through 4 games) 9.75 targets, 6.75 catches, 93 yards, .75 TDs, and 20.55 Fantasy Points per game (1PPR) That's a 16 game pace of 156 targets, 108 catches, 1488 yards, 12 TDs, and 328.8 Fantasy Points. That is the 3rd best PPG average of qualifying WRs in 2020. That would be the 2nd best WR in all of 2019, behind only Michael Thomas. Obviously, the TDs are not sustainable, but for those who want to call this a fluke, or hate on Brandin Cooks... you've been dead wr
  15. Off the top of my head... Jay Ajayi had 433 and 3TDs Bryce Brown had 347 and 2TDs CJ2K had 399 and 2TDs Jamaal Charles had 373 and 7TDs Le'Veon had 480 and 3TDs Todd Gurley 456 and 6 LT had 432 and 6 but... Doug Martin had 486 and 6TDs
  16. Too lazy to scroll up, let me guess, I'm still suppose to sell high, he's still not an RB1, yadda yadda yadda. Riding the train until it sinks... Or whatever.
  17. It's all about how you present the answer. He was last elite, just 18 games ago.
  18. Said everyone, about every GB TE since 2013 when J.Finley was last fantasy relevant. Maybe now that McCarthy is gone, the new offense is in place, finally running on all cylinders in 2020... maybe this time it's different. But until I see him do it with Lazard and Adams on the field, I'm not buying it. Rodgers has never been a TE friendly QB. Finely in 2011 is the last time Rodgers has had a top 10 fantasy TE.
  19. First things first... "Facts" can be biased. For example, Bell hasn't had a good game in 17 games. To you that's 3 years. In football terms, it's 1 single season worth of games. Including all of 2020 when he's played only 2 games and all of 2018 when he wasn't in the NFL is purposely to skew your data to slander him. Secondly, let's put Bell's season in perspective. Has he been a great 'fantasy' back? No, RB16 is okay, but not special. However, from a real NFL perspective, he had 1250 yards from scrimmage. Just because he doesn't do it all from hand offs, doesn't mean
  20. 9 touches. Felt like most didn't come until the 2nd half, I don't recall seeing him get a touch in the first half, but I was watching RedZone. I did see him get a carry but play was called dead. Next play he lined up out wide and ran a route. Announcers were repeatedly talking about why the Browns were attacking IND through the air vs the ground, so this may have been a game plan specific. Hunt deserve every touch he got, but CLE only ran the ball 28 times total, which is a season low I believe. Either that's because they don't have Chubb and we're screwed, or it was game plan specific a
  21. You guys are out of your minds. He just scored double digits. His worst game of the season so far, is 10 points. On 18 touches. After Week 5 is over, he'll still be RB6 on the season right now. We're 40% of the way through the regular season people. RB6, 18 touches, double digit points, NOT INJURED. Dalvin Cook just hurt his groin. CEH scored 1 point more than JRob, and their game was a shootout. Zeke/DAL just lost Dak Chubb went down last week. Name me the 12 RBs you'd rather have. Kamara, CMC, Jones, Carson... uhh... Maybe Henry? CEH I get, Cook ba
  22. 99.9% of the time I would agree. Unfortunately, we are in a scenario where the NFL itself is also changing the rules. My job as commissioner is to adapt, address concerns in the best interest of the league, teams within in, and prevent this season from having an asterisk next to it, if at all possible. I'm not here to debate, I'm only here to share my official ruling, to potentially help any other commissioners who decide to go the same path. This week might only be the tip of the iceberg, so I decided to handle the situation now, get it over with, and have my league covered, to
  23. I just watched and re-watched, and then re-watched again, every carry from last weeks game. I'll tell you right now, I don't care about a single metric posted on the last page. I don't care how bad the Dallas Defense is. I watched him run and he's my #1 pickup this week, I'm bidding 20, 40, and 60% (3 leagues) of my FAAB based on how RB needy my team is in each. Yes, Hunt is the back you want to own, Hunt will be the main beneficiary and by far the better/more productive RB on this team. Hunt could very well become a top 3 back in Fantasy. But if you think CLE just watched Ch
