    Mahomes is hard to top, but Murray just might be better

    This needs to slow down a bit.  In dynasty I like his prospects, however, I’m not touching him at his redraft price.


    He reminds me more of Vick then most want to admit.  Great runner but hasn’t shown the ability to work through progressions.  His eyes drop and looks to run far too often.  He also will need to show the ability to hang on to the ball better.  The way he carries the ball will need to change or we will be seeing a lot of fumbles.  


    He he needs to learn a lot.  Not worth the risk at his price for redraft.

  2. I have a startup Dynasty looking for one owner to fill the league.  it's a $100 buy in managed by league safe.  25 man rosters with a 3 man taxi squad.  Also, this league doesn't use Kickers or Defenses.  See roster settings and scoring settings below.  Feel free to email or text if you like info/ link to the bylaws or would like to join.

    I'm not outright dismissing him, but to say he has much value in redraft is questionable. He would be a last round flyer or available on the wire in most redraft leagues. It isn't an attractive team or supporting cast. No one has any clue how the offense will translate to the NFL. And then there is a rookie learning curve.

    Would anyone actually consider taking Murray as their QB1 or higher than an end of the draft pick? A lot of teams ride with 1 QB until the bye week.

    I think taking him as your QB1 in redraft is crazy.  There are so many proven QB’s and coordinators/systems I’d much rather invest in.  He’s nothing more then a last round flier for me.  I wouldn’t even do that though as I never carry two QB’s.

    2018 Josh Allen, Mayfield,

    2017 Watson, 

    2012 Luck, RG3, Wilson

    2011 Cam


    That's not rare.


    These cases are not supporting your argument.  


    Watson played 6 games his rookie year.

    Mayfield was OK but you didn’t need him at all.  Very inconsistent, same with Allen.


    Really the only ones I would tend to agree with from you list that made a real impact in terms of fantasy were Cam and Luck.


    so, yes it’s very rare.

    Well I guess you see things that most nfl scouts dont cuss almost everyone says hes better than the 5 qbs that went in the 1st last year and that his one and only knock is his height which is what lowers his draft grade. That being said those scouts are wrong alot so you have a good chance at being correct. 

    Some guys like chris Simms have said the only guys better than him coming out of college in the last 3 drafts were mahomes and Watson. 

    I agree with you on his coach I doubt a failed college coach will come in and tear up the NFL but he will probably run for 600 yards and get plenty of garbage time and 3rd string defenses. I'd take him in redrafts late late.

    Quarterbacks are super hard to predict, team and analysts are wrong much more then they are right.  


    I believe the concerns I have with Murray are real.  There is no doubt he can run, probably one of the better running quarterbacks I’ve seen.  We’ll see how that will translate to the NFL.  Will he choose to try to use his legs over his arm?  That’s slightly concerning at the NFL level.  Could be great from a fantasy standpoint but could also end up like RGIII in terms of injury.

    The main concerns I have though are in terms of running an offense and accuracy.  He has an NFL arm no doubt but his accuracy is very mediocre.  He was able to get away with that at the collegiate level especially against the weak defenses Oklahoma played.  The windows are much smaller and defenses are much faster in the NFL, his accuracy must improve.  Secondly, I question his ability to properly read defenses and go through his progressions.  Maybe this is just something he didn’t have to do at Oklahoma.  In the tape I’ve watched I saw a guy that only threw when a player was open and didn’t anticipate well.  In other words he didn’t show he knew the coverage well or possibly just didn’t trust it, in turn he would only throw when the WR was already open not before.  That’s a major red flag for me.  You cannot do that at the NFL level.


    His footwork is also very questionable, this can be solved with proper coaching.  However, KK is a rookie coach himself at the NFL and really his college track record is suspect itself.  

    I hope I’m wrong and he succeeds but I think he may have a real rough road ahead of him.

    if he was subbed in for anyone hed still prob only get one at bat so not sure why you were asking who hed be subbed in for then haha

    How do you figure?  If he got subbed for a defensive player he could easily see 2 AB’s.  I don’t see it happening though.

  7. Dropping Puig is an idiotic move.  If you are dropping Puig you better be willing to drop Jose Ramirez who is playing worse by the way.  There are plenty of players that start slow and the numbers will be there.  Were you dropping Goldy at this time last season?  Are you dropping Rizzo too?


    Making moves like that is why some players win and others look back on really stupid roster decisions in July.

    To be blunt:  That's terrible.  Your'e guessing he has thumb damage that might keep him out a month and a half (and even if he does, you still don't remotely trade him for Puig) & you just traded a potential elite fantasy player (who is 23) for a guy who you 100% know what you're going to get from him (which is no where near the ceiling of Meadows).  Congrats to the owner in your league who just bought super low on Meadows.

    Commentary above is in keeper/dynasty formats and not seasonal - seasonal you might be able to put up an argument based on the depth of your team.

    Seriously?  Just because Puig is starting slow you think he’s trash.  Don’t forget his ADP was much higher then Meadows, and now that Meadows is hurt it was a move to make.  Thumb injuries linger and zap power.  Do you really think the power will stay and he’ll keep running with an injured thumb?  Maybe, but also could be out for a long time and be limited when returning.  I would’ve pulled the trigger on this deal easy.

  9. Exactly.  I never like to pay too much attention to ADP.  I just go for the guys I want on my team.  If I were to use ADP more I guarantee I wouldn’t get the players I wanted.  Nothing worse then losing on a guy who breaks out because you didn’t want to take them a couple rounds early.

    The panic is real. Remember last year when kenley Jansen had low velocity in spring training.😂

    Ok.  It’s a little different when we are talking about a guy with heart/hamstring issues.


    Also it should be noted that Jansen despite lower velocity and a couple DL stints was perfectly fine last season.   


    As I said all pitchers ramp up at different rates.
