  1. [FTF] "How much did these Finals hurt Jimmy Butler's legacy? ... I think Giannis came out of these Finals a lot better — 0 losses. A Finals loss the single worst thing you can do in the playoffs, right? I thought he played well, but the legacy just tanks now." — @getnickwright
  2. “The reactions of Pippen and McGrady are telling. They can barely express how preposterous they find the question. Pippen smiles, sighs, and tells McGrady to answer first. They nominate players they would trust more than LeBron with the game on the line: Reggie Miller, Paul Pierce, Kobe Bryant, Joe Johnson.” imagine trusting joe Johnson, Reggie, or Pierce over Lebron 😂🤣🤡
  3. https://streamable.com/at89lb Will Lebron continue to ruin the Lakers Franchise in 2021?
  4. UP UP and AWAY!! SUPER WASHED Ain’t He??!! 🤣🤣🤣🤣🤷🏾‍♂️. Stay low and keep firing! The air up there is a tad bit different. LIVE.LAUGH.LOVE #striveforgreatness🚀 #thekidfromakron👑 #jamesgang👑 #bronknows
  5. Must own in all leagues. They use him occasionally out of backfield, physical receiver, could easily see him take over as the #1 receiver for this team as his role grows throughout the year. Get in NOW if he’s still available
  6. Think ruggs and Edwards are both starts for fantasy this week and both will be solid this year. Gruden going w the young talent and Derek Carr an underrated QB.
  7. I think closer to 2014-2016 than 2017-2019, now that he has a hall of fame QB again.
  8. Yeah as fun as this trip down memory lane is, I’m not downgrading Junior’s stock On account of his father. And also late edit: feb 2003 Super Bowl obviously lol.
  9. LOT of good situations for rookie WR this year. Pittman and Aiyuk in great spots too imo. Ceedee lamb as a third WR is as well, but he's being overdrafted IMO...have seen him go early in some drafts (close ish to gallup). Also Ruggs is in a great spot too. I view Ruggs and Edwards as roughly equals, maybe slight edge to Ruggs. He was their first round pick and obviously a tremendous athlete. Just feel like many in this thread that Edwards appears to be a third round steal... BUT NO GAMES HAVE BEEN PLAYED YET. So let's see what happens!
  10. 1st round talent, suffered a meniscus tear, injury concerns let him slide. He looks healthy now. Raiders look like they got some real offensive talent in Ruggs and Edwards. Gone are the days of taking Darrius Heyward Bay early in the draft because fast.
  11. Lol yeah he was on the 2002 Bucs team that won the superbowl Feb 2013. Was the RB, Mike Alstott was the short yardage guy and took most the TDs.
  12. Reagor could have a great year. Alshon out for several weeks, D Jax and Ertz ahead in pecking order for now. Will arcega whiteside ever be relevant? ward? Really hard to trust camp reports, but allegedly whiteside, a 2nd round pick, is gonna be more involved this year. Who knows... Could definitely see path to production, especially with Alshon out. But IMO there are some even easier ones. I think the pair of rookie raiders both have enormous upside (edwards prob would have been a first round pick too, like Ruggs, but for the meniscus tear injury - which he seems to have recovered fully f
  13. Carr is low key good. Most underrated QB in the league.
  14. this guy's an RB1 IMO, I'd rather have him than a bunch of RB taken picks 14-20 or so. I took him at 20 and felt it was a steal. Don't care about yahoo automatic insights calling it a reach or something haha. For better or for worse, Pete likes to run, run, run and then let russ wilson save the day in the 4th quarter. Carson a talented back, I got my issues with Pete, but Carson should be in for a great year, especially with no incentive to give him a pitch count or anything with the expiring contract. Don't believe a washed hyde is going to steal a ton of touches. Free Agent next ye
  15. rookie wide receivers used to be horrible bets. Rules have changed and times have changed. Look at hall of famers: Cris Carter 84 yds, 2 TD Terrell Owens, 520-4, Harrison 836-8 (not bad), Moss 1313-17 (unicorn) **** Nowadays, you've got some rookie WR/TE contributing immediately, Odell 1305-12 (12 games!), AJ Brown 1051-8, Scary Terry 919-7 (14 games), Slayton 740-8 (14 games), Metcalf 900-7. Are these guys better than Terrell Owens? HELL NO. TIMES HAVE CHANGED. Late round fliers on Pittman, Aiyuk, B. Edwards, Ruggs (little more expensive) are all good g
  16. Pathetic, loser, embarrassing player. Couldn't convert on goal line carries because he's soft as dog poo. Can't believe they will keep giving him chances. Congrats on burning your first round pick, sell for anything after people look at this stat line and erroneously think he's actually good. He's worth the 1st round pick, relax and enjoy.
  17. Are player threads supposed to be exclusively for people who own the subject player? You want a onfirmation bias/echo chamber? Honestly, it's best for every single thread on RW if dissenters come in as well. #1 to hear other points of view, #2 for entertainment value as truthers lose their cool. I go into player threads all the time when I have no shares of the player, and I also go to ones where I own shares. Y'all need a safe space, honestly? Let's see how RoJo does. I've made it known I think he's garbage. Mainly eye test. Both have had YPC issues, but Fournette at least does seri
  18. Passing yardage/TDs/rating seems to go up every year like the stock market. Also adjusted my projection to 26 TD. But I do think that he's criminally underrated. #25 is such a trash projection for Carr by yahoo.
  19. 10-12 ish. Think will put up 4500, maybe 26 td, with no real rushing contribution. Kinda wild that I think that's a backend QB1 hahaha...such a passing league now... Those are like early career peyton manning numbers back in indy! Yahoo has him projected as the #25 QB on the season which is the biggest whiff projection I've seen. They have Burrow #10. I'd be comfortable with a straight swap on those projections. Derek Carr isn't elite but damn he's one of the most underrated QBs I've ever seen. 100.8 rating last year with GARBAGE. Now has some talent.
  20. I don't think you can pencil waller in for 1k anymore. 1k+ ruggs 1k+ edwards 700 waller I'll give you 700 renfrow running backs, WR4/5/6, TE2 all 1k-1200 ish Carr passes for 4500-4600. My estimates
  21. Not if the dude really wanted to have him. Likely there were other bids as well. If someone offered me faab for edwards, I wouldn't exactly be interested to trade edwards for the faab. Depends on whether $0 bids, total budget (is total budget 100? 300? we don't know), depth of the league, etc. Number of factors. But I think good chance Edwards is a 1k receiver if he plays all 16 games, same with Ruggs. If I'm looking at my roster and WR is weak and Edwards is on the wire, I'm gonna make a bid that I think I will reasonably beat everybody else. I've spent $300 on a player (300 bu
  22. With $0 bids, nothing is an overpay (except kickers, defenses, no upside replacements). Otherwise, get your man. You will always be more disappointed if you really want someone and you start penny pinching and miss your guy.
  23. great, cheap sleeper. Got him for $1 per year x 5 years in a $100 budget dynasty league...pretty excited. Benefits of being patient and waiting til the end of the auction and being the last man standing to fill roster spots. So much cheaper than Ruggs and could be similar. Raiders have an interesting offense this year.
