  1. In Baltimore it's going to be RUN, when it's not RUN we'll see primary read>check down>scramble/broken play. Harbaugh is looking for playmakers. Hill is a playmaker.
  2. Looks like Cain is healing up fast. Was originally reported he would be out the first part of the season, but he had 7 rec for 80 yards the other night.
  3. Nothing too fresh to offer, but I'll chime in. Mostly I like the receivers in this area: Anthony Miller / Trey Quinn / Keke Coutee / Deebo Samuel / Daesean Hamilton / Phillip Dorsett / Robert Foster Couple RB's too: Matt Breida / Jaylen Samuels I also want to see if one of these guys can make a leap: Mitch Trubisky / Josh Allen TE... Not really feeling it yet.
  4. Probably too much, but I think it could happen if Keenum starts. He probably handles some returns every week, but he's not real dynamic back there obviously.
  5. Crowder did 66/789/3 in 2017. QB situation is nonsense here, but the other receivers are somehow less inspiring than this former Mr. Irrelevant. Wouldn't shock me if he managed to meet that reception total or even beat it.
  6. Every team spreads the ball around until someone transcends the system. Miller has a shot.
  7. Well there's no way he's reached his ceiling, so I think we see some more consistency this year. However, the defense is a limiting factor and they may try to run more with the new backs. Kind of intruiging though if he can get everything coordinated.
  8. Actually I like Rashaad Penny and Jaylen Samuels. I think Penny shows he's the best back in Seattle this year and I'm just too curious about Samuel's role not too take him (ppr). To a lesser extent, maybe Justice Hill.
  9. Maybe I'm crazy but I think Mack is a stud. As a rookie he had zero patience, didn't grasp the blocking scheme. Last year he made huge strides in those areas. Would it shock anyone if he made improvements in the receiving game next?
  10. MVS definitely looked more athlete than football player to me. I don't know if that changes in one off-season.
  11. Did Kelly really look that bad? I liked him coming out and I know his preseason performance was promising, but I didn't realize he got any meanful regular season work. I'm kinda hoping he gets cut or traded just to get into a more open situation (KC!), but it's probably not likely.
  12. Ok it's a new site to me, I wasn't aware that they were drawing from a sample rather than the whole season. It says a lot that they chose to focus on shutting down Sutton. I wonder if the approach was similar in '16? It would seem like a an even better strategy given the lack of a strong secondary option. Regardless, my original point in bringing up his college career was to illustrate that I see Sutton as a good, but not great nfl receiver. You can't necessarily disregard the fact that Sutton can be shutdown. He was in fact shutdown basically his whole rookie season
  13. Good stuff. I'm not sure I would actually take any rookie WR this year in my redraft, though Campbell is kinda interesting. However, I think Deebo fills a special role here right off the bat. Assuming McKinnon is healthy, I see them pairing these two guys together and running a bunch of misdirection plays, motioning in and out of the backfield, jet sweeps, end arounds, draws, screen, etc. So I think Deebo at a minimum gets special package work. He can play the slot or flanker so he can get work in multiple personnel groupings. He's got the disposition to be a good blocker,
  14. Here's the link, sorry about the weird font: https://www.thefantasyfootballers.com/articles/reception-perception-courtland-sutton-managing-the-alien-of-this-class/ "One last note: I rarely include the double coverage notes in these profiles because the number of plays where a receiver is truly “double covered” are so infrequent. However, for Sutton, it’s worth including. He saw double coverage on 28 routes, the most in this class, and posted a 53.6 percent success rate. His success rank ranks fifth among prospects charted who saw 20 or more attempts against double coverage." It's a g
  15. I won't pretend to be an authority on SMU football, but just looking at the stats for '16-'17 I read it a little differently. In '16: Sutton - 76/1246/16.4/10 #2 WR J. Proche - 57/709/12.4/6 QB Hicks - 422att/2930/19/55.5% In '17: Sutton - 68/1085/16.0/12 J. Proche - 40/816/20.4/6 T.Quinn - 114/1236/10.8/13 QB Hicks - 472att/3569/33/58.5% So Sutton only dipped by 8 receptions. Overall passing TDs went up drastically so Sutton catching a couple more is no surprise. J. Proche apparently got a new role in just catching b
  16. Going through all the rookie receivers and I like what see from Deebo Samuel. Seems like a guy who just knows the game and is ready to play. Got that RB build thing going which is kinda becoming trendy (5'11" 215lbs). Hard nosed, quickness, good yac, nice routes. The WR situation in SF is sort of open and I've seen a couple mentions of Deebo starting on the outside over Goodwin.
  17. I don't know, Sutton is a big dude for sure, but from what I've seen he doesn't really use his size to out-muscle anybody. Also, he wasn't even the best producing WR on his college team. To me he feels like a good 2nd option. I'm still taking Hamilton here.
  18. I don't have time to really contextualize this with injuries and matchups, but it does look like Samuel became pretty much a three down player around the last 1/3 of the season. Not a gadget / matchup guy at all. Snap counts Moore vs Samuel Wk5-17 41-17% 45-5 46-32 71-40 85-27 86-33 78-28 92-92 94-83 91-93 98-95 95-86 82-56
  19. Could you elaborate on this? I feel like Samuel is another Taylor Gabriel, maybe with better hands. DJ, however, could be very, very good.
  20. I didn't watch that close, but didn't Hamilton look better than Sutton last year?
  21. I don't know exactly, but it might be a situation where his ranking is low on Yahoo/ESPN/etc but he's a 7th rounder on fantasypros and the like. Anyway, I saw somewhere last year that Penny has "learning issues" and that his first year would likely be a wash. I bet he gets some good work in this season. I'd take him in the 7th if need be.
  22. By "more talented" you mean "faster" I take it?
