    I'm hoping that this makes him drop to me at pick 6 on Sunday. He IS the offense. Anyone that has watched a Giants game can see that. Marshall, Engram, Vereen, whoever...I don't see anyone stopping Odell (outside of Eli himself) being a monster. I think if anything, having some extra threats helps a bit. The Giants had to target him on so many short routes last year, and he wasn't given as much of a chance to showcase his electricity. That may still be an issue due to the o-line, but Manning couldn't seem to ever find Odell on a deep ball last year. Have to think (gut reaction) that improves. I'm a Giants fan so I'm probably biased, but Odell is going to absolutely explode at some point and I'll take my chances on him. He tends to play (and play well) through injury too. You can take 80+ ypg and over 0.5 td's per game to the bank, with the upside for closer to 100 ypg and 0.8 td per game. 

    i agree with you but foot injuries with a WR is never a good thing.

    There is no insight whatsoever in that article.  It just reports speculation (by a fantasy football writer) that the Bills should theoretically be shopping McCoy.


    headline:  "McCoy unhappy in Buffalo"

    the money quote:  "It would not be a surprise if he is unhappy in Buffalo."






    I know, and there probably won't be a source since the Bills  won't make it so obvious , as with the Watkins trade, Mccoy said he was "shocked".   But the writer is basing it on logic and it DOES make sense for the Bills to shop him around, although he probably won't get traded since they still need to sell tickets.

    So now all of the sudden he's a "low-end" WR after your analysis? Who are the mid RB1's then?


    That's always the Million dollar question, isn't it..... i'm not quite sure, but I just think that Mccoy will put up low end Rb1 type #s this year.

    I'm not sure why people are expecting a worse year out of McCoy. While Watkins isn't on the team, he was barely there last year too and I would say the current WR core is the same if not better than last years when you exclude Watkins. 

    Even though they were without Watkins last year, this year it's different - you have to think about the mentality and moral of the players after the new coaches and trades.   They are in re-building mode.   The players probably know they're tanking the season (since there is supposedly a good draft class of Qbs next year).  So why would Shady, being 29, be willing to put his body on the line for a lost season?


    just as a side note - Glenn, probably one of their best offensive lineman, is hurt

  4. I was really sold on taking McCoy this year with my 1st round pick.  I've always leaned Rb heavy , especially early on  and it's brought me success, but after analyzing the situation i'm going to pass.


    It's a new Regime in Buffalo.  They just traded Watkins and Darby, Taylor took a paycut ,  - it's obvious they're cleaning house.  


    Mccoy will get the touches early on and have some good games until the team starts to loose.  he's also a big risk to get hurt.   Also Rb's on bad teams usually don't do very well.  i'd say he's a low-end RB1 this year.

  5. I have the 5th pick in a snake , re-draft league 1 qb, 2rb 2wr te, rb/wr/te flex  6 points for all TDs and 1/2 ppr.  


    I'm a bit confused as who to take with pick 1 (assuming 1-4 go Bell, DJ, AB and OBJ).  I know the consensus is to take Julio or McCoy, but i'm worried about Julio's foot.  also McCoy is playing in a new offense on a team that's cleaning house. 


    Any suggestions?
