  1. As we dissect mixons upside and his downside. As we debate over Sewell or ja'marr. As we debate if burrows will take the needed next step this offense needs him to. One thing sure stands out to me. Mixon is just 24 years old. 24. Crazy. If you read the comments on him youd think he was a 30 year old journey man. Dudes a 24 year old rb they just paid big money to that has franchise type qb and decent wr weapons....add in the talent at pick 5 and the waiving of gio and it's hard to argue he isn't trending in the right direction.
  2. Hard to say what burrows wants. If I look at it logically. If I was burrow and I had the wrs weapons the Patriots had then id say please give me Ja'maar....but if I was looking around at my weapons and saw Boyd, Higgins, and mixon I'd say please give me Sewell ...Bengals weapons aren't great but they young and have potential....please protect me
  3. Outside of Lawrence not going at pick #1 if the Bengals pass on Sewell at 5 that would be the biggest possible surprise of the draft for me. Protect your franchise qb. Burrows already missed games last year. You add Sewell at 5 then piece the rest of your draft.
  4. The niners trade ensures another qb goes before they pick at 5 which sure looks like Sewell falls to them. They already added reiff. Pair him with Sewell and that's a major upgrade.
  5. Not a mixon owner. Not a guy who will sit here and blow the horn shouting his praises. I will say that he is only 24 years old and outside of last year he missed only 4 games in 3 seasons....hardly this always hurt guy people are claiming him to be....am I missing something?
  6. This was macks last year of his contract. This was his year to ball out and get paid. Tough luck for the kid. Having said that why would colts bring back a rb fresh off Achilles injury when your high draft pick just balled out? I just don't see him in colts uniform next year. Hines comes in at 2 mill next year he'll be back....wilkins comes in just under 1 mill he should be back ...that's about 3 mill for your back up rbs...
  7. he starts to fumble then all bets off....hard to say if it carries over...sounds like he is getting solid coaching on it though so thats a good start https://www.indystar.com/story/sports/nfl/colts/2020/06/16/colts-fumbling-wont-issue-jonathan-taylor-tom-rathman/3201722001/
  8. Colts ran the ball 471 times last year which was 5th in the league. They had an elite offensive line last year and returned all starters. They signed Phillip Rivers, which at his age is obviously a short term answer which means they are in win now mode this year. Of the 471 carries last year marlon mack got 247. Brissett was 2nd with 56. Hines 52. Wilkins 51. Williams 49. They kept 4 backs on the roster so williams is gone and rivers shouldn't have any designed run plays for him. My gut says they slightly increase last years carries but for debate we can stay at 471. I think most woul
  9. What are some Clyde deals that have gotten done by people? Or is everyone holding him close expecting the world
  10. Just to help gage value discussion......I was just offered Joe mixon...whom I love....for Clyde and AJ green....whom I will always love....so many variables with Clyde.....we expect him to get all the action.....but guys like mixon are gonna get all the action....Clyde is so hard to value for me...
  11. We all know Howard hasn't been the best pass catching back ..or even serviceable....but....he has statistically been one of the better pass protection backs in the league....that skill set translates to more snaps when the Tua era begins...I see 250 carrys and 3 catches...ha ha....clear goal line back ..depending on offensive success he could default into 7 tds....could do way worse in your flex if you went heavy wr in draft....
  12. I always appreciate when posters go out on a limp and post rankings and projections.. Having said that.. My initial reaction is the last year 9 total rbs hit 1000 only 5 hit over 1100...the year before that 9 total hit 1000 with 7 over 1100...your projecting 20 rbs to hit 1000 with 13 over 1100. Mathematically speaking that's just way to many
  13. Seattle is 1 of 2 teams to run the football over 500 times. That's good for fantasy rbs. Even if Carson plays 16 games their is still enough carries for penny to possibly be a decent flex. Seattle traded up in the 1st to take penny. That investment equates to management's belief in the guy. He showed flashes. Only had double digit carries twice. One game sucked. One game over 100 yards rushing. I think from a sheer investment to reward standpoint Mr penny is a solid buy right now. I like him.
  14. I'm not really trying to push the conversation in either direction....I would be pleased with howard as my starting tight end in most leagues... Dude has tremendous ability... Numbers can always be found to push a conversation in both directions... My point is Arians seems smart... Howard is good... Will he be gronk? Nope.... But 900 yards and 8 tds seems very reasonable to me...i know 5th round has been tossed around in this thread... Pass on that for sure... 6th?....getting closer.... If i can get him 7th that feels okay... I'm thinking in that value area I'll end up with Evan engram more th
  15. Well... That year he nearly led the team in total yards and tds Mr Gresham had 737 yards and 5 tds.... Aj green had 1350 and 11 tds.... It's close so I get what your saying...
