  1. Sure, I play standard, PPR is too easy kinda like fantasy with trainning wheels. I played it in 3 leagues last yr and won two Championships. In standard i employ the draft RBs till you have em all style, ever since I drafted like this i've won. In the past 4 years in my main league i havent finished worst than 3rd in regular season winning it twice and won a championship. Thats beside the two PPR championships i won last yr. that said, if you were drafting at 1.10-1.12 last season and went RB/RB, you may of ended up with mixon / ekeler /sanders / drake. tough to survive to the play
  2. I usually draft 4 rbs straight, thinking of going 5 deep this yr. Zero rb seems like a meme that popped up 5-6 years ago when TOP tier RBs were limited and the lower tiers were pretty **** Cedric Benson Beanie Wells etc and TOP WR were putting up big numbers AB Jordy nelson megatron julio .. basically there were more top tier wrs than rbs. Never used it, never seen it used, never seen it win.
  3. I don't find Walterfootball a joke. It's mock drafts no one gets it 100% right Charlie Campbell, Senior Draft Analyst Last update: Monday, April 5, 2021. Round 5 added. Follow Charlie on Twitter @draftcampbell for updates. Led all NFL media in draft rumor accuracy in '15, '16, '17, '18, and '20 Led all NFL media in correct picks for the 2017 and 2019 NFL Drafts This guy puts up mocks on WalterFootball with good analysis of the players and why each team pick was made. I checked out draftek as i had never heard of it before and dont see it as superior to WF at all.
  4. I get that but he's still QB20+. I'm looking forward to seeing what he can do.
  5. The emancipation of Sam Darnald!! It should be interesting to see if another Gase QB can succeed outside his "system". The trade seems like a win for both teams but fantasy wise the "needle" doesn't move much for me. Not draftable in 1QB leagues.
  6. After doing a lil more digging some have him ranked as a top 4 TE already. What round would you be willing to go "All in" for Pitts? Fant/Hockenson both were touted as game changers and had not so spectacular rookie seasons. Are you drafting Pitts ahead of Fant/Hockenson this yr?
  7. Pitts is arguably the best player (regardless of position) in this 2021 NFL Draft class. He's a man amongst boys playing in the SEC and he could very easily enter into the top-5 NFL TE conversation the minute he gets drafted. He's an incredible and diverse route-runner that lines up all over the formation. He can be lined up in-line as a blocker and run a deep post from attached to the line of scrimmage or he can line up out wide and run comebacks. Possesses an inexplainable ability to sink in and out of his routes for a player that is 250 pounds. He's able to shift his momentum like a player
  8. That s a thorough assessment, which i agree with!! My train of thought is thatt he Pats are getting back their defensive leaders from covid opt outs in 2019 (chung, hightower, mccourtey) plus the additions in FA (judon, van noy etc)will boost their D back to what it was previous yrs(championship caliber). Their offense was terrible last yr, like car wreck bad. i wont put that all on Newton, signed late no otas preseason etc. The oline was downgraded last yr and they might have had the worst WRs in the league. O line has been improved with Trent brown and the return of Cannon from co
  9. https://bengalswire.usatoday.com/2021/03/25/joe-burrow-telling-bengals-reunite-jamarr-chase-nfl-draft/ Seems like Burrows wants Chase.
  10. Talks about how things went down in Philly, happy to be in Indy and reunited/relationship with Reich. They also touch on how Pat wanted the Colts to go for another QB ala Stafford, Rodgers, Wilson (how I felt too). Fresh start with a winning team etc. I wasn't thrilled about the trade but after listening to this and his press debut i'm more neutral/optimistic.
  11. Seems like a good yr to draft their defence. I think they will get back to double digit wins on the strength of their D.
  12. Akers' first game carrying the load week 13. 21 carries 72 yards 1 TD/ 1 catch 1 target 22 yards. Not too shabby.
  13. I'll take Akers. He's younger, faster and on a better team. He averaged 24 carries/targets per game once he took over last yr plus playoffs. I like opportunity and this guys gonna get it. That's not saying I think Elliots trash. This could be the best year to draft him with his depressed draft price. With Dak he was pretty fricken good also averaging 24 carries/targets per game and scoring 6(in 5games) of his seasons 8 tds. I know Dallas kinda tossed in the towel after Dak got hurt but Elliot even with Dak only went over 100 yards rushing twice last yr while Akers went over 100 yar
  14. First playoff game in his career, no problem! 20 plus fantasy points vs Seattle!
  15. This was Akers " Breakout" game, he does everything including catch the ball(ppr). I know this is just one game but it shows how the Rams can and possibly want to use him in 2021.
  16. Right now as it stands with no competition for Ekler I'd take Akers in all formats. I feel he's superior at football and on a better offence. I understand PPR, Played for the first time last year won a chip.
  17. You are correct. My bad. I view Akers as a workhorse. i dont view Ekler as a workhorse and wont be surprised if they draft someone next month
  18. You do know that all but one of those years he shared the backfield with all world HOFer LT. Do you want me to post LTs stats alongside sproles stats showing why his are so low to start his career and progressivly get better as LTs decline? Sproles was great, always. He just had tougher competition and less opportunity in San Diego. He prob decided to go to the saintsnin free agencey because of the opportunity and scheme fit.
  19. Boudwijn. Heres a quote i pulled from walterfootball who graded the trade as a B+ for the 9ers and a A+ for the Dolphins as i didnt really touch on your dynasty question. "The 49ers paid a steep cost to move up to No. 3, but a franchise quarterback is priceless, especially if he's on a rookie contract for four years. Garoppolo is clearly not the answer, so if the 49ers can shave off a huge chunk of their cap to potentially upgrade quarterback and have enough money to spend on more talented players, that's a win." I agree with this and as stated earlier I think Aiyuk has already pr
  20. Umm.. yes! lol. My original league is standard so i'm ranking him in that fashion even still i'd take Akers over Ekler in PPR. I can envision a "prime Gurley" type season from if he stays healthy.
  21. I think WRs like Aiyuk can get theirs on their own, he's incredible after the catch and seems to get great seperation. imo a good to top tier QB would propell him to WR1 . I'm not concerned about the QB situation at all . Garopollo was hurt last yr for the most part and Aiyuk played pretty damn good down the stretch albeit without kittle and deebo he got more targets than he might have otherwise. Week Receptions Yards TDs 7 6 115 0 8 8 91 1
  22. https://www.fantasypros.com/2021/02/early-undervalued-wide-receivers-2021-fantasy-football/ Ssshhhh.. lol I think he is one of the better options to outpreform his ADP (currently wr 33 round 7 spot 11 standard scoring on ffcalculator). My guess by draft day he will be the WR 26th-30th. In the late 6th or early 7th rnd. Strong WR2.
  23. Ive done a few mocks which are meaningless atm but hes going as the 10-12th qb anywhere from round 8-10 with 8-9QBs being taken by rnd 6.. The noteable thing to me was how high all the other QBs are going compared to previous yrs possibly making "sleepers" go a few rnds early too. Hurts is currently my top "late rnd QB" reminds me of LJax in the sense where they both got their feet wet at the end of the season and took off yr 2.
  24. I'd be happy to take Mixon in the 3rd round but no earlier. I think the potential for a huge season IS there more so if Gio gets traded but it's hard to bite earlier than that given his injury history.
  25. You're spot on imo. I'd Draft him as my wr4/5 with hopes of wr2/3 production . Standard, season long.
