  1. How do you all manage your budget during the draft? Last year I created 5-6 different team structures with various budgets per starting position and as I won players, eventually narrowed down to the structure and cost per position that my team fit into. Any spreadsheet nerds with a cool draft day process?
  2. He’s rushed for 1,000 yards in back to back seasons with 7 TDs each. Lamar’s challenge to getting to QB1 is passing yardage imo. That’s why I think the WR additions this season are a big deal. Rushing QBs are changing the position and are bringing a higher floor + upside to those that have the skill set.
  3. I think the additions of Bateman and Watkins are flying a bit under the radar for this offense. I consider Watkins as nothing more than a role player, but both of these players massively upgrades the Ravens’ intermediate passing game which was so badly lacking last year. Year 2 with Dobbins, Lamar hungry after a poor first half of the season…definitely feeling post-hype sleeper status for the offense. Lamar is no doubt in the conversation for THE QB1 with a bounce back season.
  4. I’m aggressively trying to get shares of this offense this season now that they are finally resetting the coaching staff. Mike Williams will always be a deep threat but with that comes less consistent targets and production. Besides the obvious of “score more TDs”, how does Mike Williams progress this season to be a more stable flex option in your lineup?
  5. General consensus at this stage of the offseason is that Trey Lance will get in there after the Niners bye in Week 6. Jimmy + Lance should be better for Aiyuk than Jimmy + Mullens last season. The real question to Aiyuk's production (and therefore value) will be: Healthy supporting cast on offense - last year he was one of the few players to escape injury all season so he had a ton of targets funneled his way as a result. One of, if not THE, weakest schedule in the NFL. I don't put too much weight on strength of schedule but it does look like a joke and does not project for
  6. 3 DNPs in a row for Zeke. Nothing like the fantasy semi finals and tempting fate with a backup running back play. Wheels up time
  7. Now a Christian Kirk groin injury. I refuse to pick up the corpse of Larry Fitz....so it is wheels up time?
  8. I haven't seen much written about Diontae by beat reporters so far. Am I missing the good stuff or has it been a little quiet so far? I think we are all eagerly awaiting to see how quickly DJ and Big Ben can build their chemistry, so this feels like an important data point out of training camp.
  9. 2017 I fell for the Joe Mixon hype train. I want to just avoid moderately expensive rookie RBs in general but they always pull me back in somehow.
  10. AJ Green injury concerns already popping up and Joe Burrow is hopefully an immediate upgrade over last year's quarterback play based on his college resume. The Burrow / Jefferson connection has been cast upon Tyler Boyd so far in preseason, but the Bengals defense may be the bigger talking point. If the Bengals are constantly chasing games and in the occasional shootout, we can project Boyd for a similar amount of volume as last season out of the slot. Boyd is never necessarily an exciting pick but could be that consistent flex player that gets you through tough parts of your seaso
  11. Looking at $1 late auction steals, how do you compare Campbell with the Anthony Millers, Curtis Samuels or Mike Williams of the world? All of those players are a little older and have shown a some more of what they can do, but none have necessarily taken off.
  12. I've been one of the biggest Melvin Gordon deniers in the past, always pointing to the YPC and writing him off as an inefficient RB. As we gear up for draft season, I'm looking at my potential blind spots on Gordon with the move to DEN that comes with a A) better offensive line better scheme and C) more offensive weapons in general that could add up to a better overall team, if the QB is up to it. Pat Shurmur has also been a one back play caller historically, but Lindsay has definitely earned his own role. I'm starting to think of MG as an unsexy, reliable RB2 that is moderat
  13. I agree that Jonnu is a great option because he has proved it on the field more. He is also stepping into a much larger target share with Delanie Walker gone. Looking purely at pass attempts and game script, the Titans and Panthers are going to be night and day. How many targets can Jonnu really expect this season vs. Thomas? Fantasy is all about opportunity first and foremost.
  14. My TE strategy this year is to go all in on Ian Thomas after aggressively going after Kelce and Kittle. With Carolina's decimated defense and a projected uptempo offense with the new coaching staff, there will be plenty of targets to go around. I think Robby Anderson is the real loser in this offense, not Ian Thomas over the middle as a quick outlet for Teddy.
  15. So much working in Kittle's favor this season before we consider his general dominance at the position: - Deebo's broken foot and WRs history with this injury if they are rushed back too early - Replacing a veteran (Sanders) with a very talented rookie (Aiyuk) and the learning curve that comes with that - Positive TD regression coming Kittle's way after only scoring 5 TDs the last two seasons - SF's defense primed for at least a little bit of regression after last year's freakish season
  16. Who is pulling the trigger on Pettis this week? Starting him over Westbrook and hoping for a 7 tgts/5 receptions/80 yards type of day, maybe we sneak in a TD. Deebo is all but out of this game also.
  17. This may be an unpopular opinion...but thoughts on DJ being a sell high with the following schedule coming up: @NYG (great matchup) @NO SF @TB @SF Bye I’m 3-3 with no time to wait around and his value might not get much higher. His pass catching skills are ridiculous but those are some tough defensive fronts he will be facing soon.
  18. I think the Redskins defense is one you want to attack regardless. I agree that this game has virtually no chance to shoot out, but picking on weak defenses is key for these bye week filler players, which Pettis has unfortunately become. His usage is certainly trending in the right direction and he was close to a score this past weekend. If Deebo doesn't practice this week, this may be a close my eyes and pull the trigger start spot during the first bad bye week for my squad.
  19. I seriously can't decide if OBJ is a buy low candidate or not. The offense looked much better this past week with a bigger emphasis on Chubb. Landry led the team but OBJ was getting tough shadow coverage all game. I can't help but feel like this might be a great buying opportunity. He has a great schedule in the second half of the season from a pass def efficiency perspective (per Warren Sharp's tool - https://www.sharpfootballstats.com/2019-strength-of-schedule--off-.html)
  20. I am rostering David Johnson and Mark Ingram and I much rather stash Gus than Chase Edmunds. Ingram has been dominating touches but I think it is more likely that this offense keeps humming with Gus compared to the Cards with Edmunds.
  21. Not overreacting to LeVeon's MRI news. Gase came out and said it could be just a little bit of soreness and they are probably being overly cautious. I didn't see Bell go down during the game either. Still holding Samuels instead of picking up Ty.
  22. Really surprised to see no action in this thread since January. Drafting Michael Thomas in the 1st round may not be the sexiest pick you make in your entire draft, but I think it is certainly one of the safest. How does the Rotoworld community compare MT's floor with huge spike weeks with the likes of Davante Adams? In my mind, Adams has the edge in the TD department, but there is a decent amount of unknowns with this new Packer's offense. Adams out of the slot will be interesting, but LaFleur was a run first coach with the Titans and based on reports from OTAs, he is unwilling to t
