Just Drafted

Just Drafted (1/11)



  1. Yea, I don't see the Pats losing that division. Ain't going to lie, i expect Hogan to just slide right into the Eldeman role. They made "capturing lightning in a bottle" look easy with the shift from Welker to Eldeman.
  2. The only thing that wasn't out of the ordinary of that game was Danny Amendola getting injured. That man is Mr. Consistent.
  3. Brady didn't look great, but all the holes in the defense was more surprising for me. Not a Pats fan, but respect (jealous) of how that team has been able to play "next man up" on defense and look stout. Just wasn't there tonight.
  4. Ginn is intriguing purely because of the tease of being a duel threat of returns and catches from Brees (he'll be running Brandin Cooks routes but without the hands). I wouldn't be that excited that he'll put up stellar return numbers. He'll be switching from a non-dome to home dome stadium, so touchback % will be a concern. He is moving within the same division (with kickers with good touchback %). I think you can expect his return yards last year to be his baseline/ceiling for this year. Solid sleeper picks for return yards are slim, but here is my list: Offensive positional players: Tyler Ervin - Houston - RB -- His return skills was a reason he was draft because the Texans were trash at it last year. Cordarrelle Patterson - Oakland - WR -- I think Patterson has better upside than Ginn for being a duel threat. Oakland has a great O-line. He is moving from a dome stadium to open air stadium. Amari/Crabtree will have the focus of the stronger DBs with Patterson running through the slots. The main concern is that Jalen Richard is also good at returning, so I don't fully trust the return job is his. Defensive positional players: Marcus Sherels - Vikings - CB -- Will be replacing Cordarrelle Patterson as their punt/kick-off returner. Adoree Jackson - Titians - CB -- Same reason for Ervin with Houston The highest ceiling of all sleepers: Jabrill Peppers - Browns - S -- I think this guy will have the biggest splash in return yards of everyone. Starting rookie QB resulting is a lot of change of possessions resulting in more scores/kickoff returns. Defense in the beginning stages of becoming good. Whole division plays in outdoor stadiums (in cold weather) resulting in less touchback kickoffs. Slotted for both punt & kickoff return duty.
