  1. Considering it now that I acquired Njoku. If Amari Cooper gets traded he becomes a little bit more interesting but the offense/Carr is way too inconsistent for my tastes. I didn't watch the game at all but I've been told that Cook had some wide open looks that Carr either didn't see him or was too busy getting sacked to get the ball to him... the opportunity is there. But man, Carr is terrible.
  2. TEs are mostly system dependent as well. It could simply be Gruden's scheme happens to match up perfectly with Cook this year.
  3. He had 700 yards last year and 2 TDs... he's already got 380 this year and 2 TDs (could have easily been 4-5 TDs). Also he's almost got half of last year's targets over 4 games (86/35) and half of the receptions (54/26). Catch percentage is up from 62% to 74%. With numbers like this I've gotta think it's a lot to do with a scheme that is built to funnel passes to him. IIRC he's got a pretty favorable ROS schedule as well. Could be a Delanie Walker type season in that he finally is in the right place at the right time to break out. Edit: Also he's a go to receiver in the red zone, s
  4. Maybe, but the first few weeks he should be a top TE play. I think I'm playing over Stills in the flex.
  5. When I'm at the bottom of the WW order, I just get guys because people up top tend to "hold out" for the season changer. Took a shot at Cook at #8 and got him. I decided to do so after reading this article, which a brief skim didn't show me anyone else had posted yet: https://raiderswire.usatoday.com/2018/08/08/raiders-tight-ends-cook-carrier-key-to-grudens-versatile-vision/ Sounds like TE is going to be a HUGE focus and he delivered on MNF. 15 total TE targets. This was different than in years past when he would just catch 6/6 targets and go for 100. He was PEPPERED wi
  6. This is what I'm thinking. Also David Johnson's rookie year. All we need is 3 good games out of him at that point. Also does anyone know if he's now the kick returner? https://www.stampedeblue.com/2017/11/7/16619784/colts-place-quan-bray-on-injured-reserve-elevate-nt-joey-mbu-from-practice-squad Could be a solid RB2/3 (e: in return yardage leagues) if that ends up being true...
  7. For reference, the last time Gronk made it to the championship in my leagues was 2010 or 2011. He is almost never worth taking over a RB or WR unless he falls to the third or fourth round. Guys like Engram and Ertz were late round picks or free agents and will probably win people leagues. Waiting on a TE/streaming is the way to go.
  8. I say he's still a hold... he was great against the Saints before the bye. That said Rodgers being gone definitely hurts everyone on the offense. Such a shame because I thought Jones had a lot of potential this season.
  9. My league has been plagued with god awful trades this year and there has never been any kind of veto system. In the past there have been a small amount of questionable trades but this year is a completely different story. For instance AJ Green just got traded straight up for Melvin Gordon this weekend. Before that Hopkins was traded for DT and Forte (pre-Watson injury). A few weeks ago Ameer Abdullah was traded for Cam Newton and Lamar Miller. The Hopkins trade isn't that bad but many people in the league had a problem with it... the rest just do not fly. There have be
  10. Goff plays Houston this week and runs the #1 scoring offense in the league. I think there's a chance he goes on a run with a pretty decent remaining schedule and could end up top 5.
  11. Sammy Watkins could be a good 1 week play against Houston.
  12. Is he droppable? No one is trading for him and I really can't afford his 2 point games.
  13. I'm holding unless I have the Jags D. Even then I'd probably still hold them and play matchups. They've put up double digit points in 5/8 games with three of them being 20+. Only real concern is the offense but it appears to be getting better each week.
  14. This is the boat I'm in... currently have Fournette and Ingram with DJ on IR and I have been shopping him all week.
  15. What are people trading to get Baldwin? I love that guy and want to trade for him.
  16. Partially why I'm considering selling high on him even though I think he's really good. He's probably worth holding through the bye though.
  17. Eh, I think a lot of us went into it expecting the same old Cooks but hoping for the Moss 2.0 upside. IMO he was one of the "safer" 2nd round picks but I would definitely not reach for him in hindsight. He's been pretty good though and so far has only boomed once. Could be a 2015 Doug Baldwin type finish to the year if we are lucky.
  18. I dropped him. Sorry Gilly, I wanted to believe. Dion Lewis just looks so much better out there as a runner.
  19. How do we feel about him ROS? I'm not worried about his performance against JAX but the TEN game was garbage IMO. I think teams are just going to take him away and and force Brissett to throw elsewhere.
  20. Soooo.... where are all those people saying that this was nothing like the Langford/Howard situation last year? This guy is probably a league winner for some people. He looks so good out there, IDK how people still think Ty is getting his job back barring injury.
  21. I think I'd consider dropping him for Corey Davis from that group. Davis has league winning upside. http://forums.rotoworld.com/topic/676475-wdis-rb-and-flex-pick-3-whir/
  22. Gotta go White here... He's good for at least 10 points in PPR. http://forums.rotoworld.com/topic/676475-wdis-rb-and-flex-pick-3-whir/
  23. CJA, AA, Hyde http://forums.rotoworld.com/topic/676475-wdis-rb-and-flex-pick-3-whir/
  24. I'd go Jones or Cobb since I don't trust that TyMont is actually healthy and will see significant snaps. http://forums.rotoworld.com/topic/676475-wdis-rb-and-flex-pick-3-whir/
