Did no one watch last year? Breida doesn't 'go down.' He just Black Knights through that shiz

Hopefully he will have a c-section and the recovery time will only be a few weeks.  Natural birth might mean he goes on IR.

Whoever I dropped last week

I picked up Fant this week over Gesicki after the Hunter Henry injury. Why am I wrong?

 

 

i'd bet on the 2nd year tight end over the rookie TE 99.99999% of the time, especially if they're similar athletes, just because it's so darn rare for a rookie TE to finish top 10.

 

but if you own fant, you have to like what you saw considering his price tag.

yep ... i mentioned that in his thread, and how similar his situation is to his Ole Miss running mate Metcalf - the SeaHags only completed 5 to their WRs last week (4 to Metcalf).

absolute beasts/freaks, but in extremely run-centric schemes. 

 

I think the Seahawks are nuts to go this run heavy, they’ve got a top 5 qb in ability, throwing to a great possession receiver on one side and an athletic beast on the other. Dissly made a few huge plays last year, plus they have this other rookie Ursua who looks like Doug Baldwin 2.0. Why they elect to go run heavy boggles the mind.

 

I think their defense clearly being weaker may force them into evolving as the season progresses into a way more pass oriented offense, just no way they can continue to play a pure field position  strategy with this weak of a secondary, giving up 400+ yards to Andy Dalton.

Surprised nobody mentioned Minshew. 

 

Is everyone seriously overlooking the potential for the Jags to be maybe a pretty good offensive team? I don’t have time to research, but I doubt a rookie has ever had an 88% completion percentage in their first game. It’s not inconceivable for him to go 300 yards & 4tds this weekend, and be Mahomes-lite against Houston.

Keke Coutee in PPR leagues

 

Is he expected to be a target hog?  Why particularly in PPR leagues?  Seems to me they have plenty of mouths to feed.

He got a lot of quick short passes when he played last year. Good PPR stat lines. Standard not so much. Definitely won’t be a target hog, more like fighting for scraps behind Nuk and Fuller.

Highly doubtful

The only player worth owning on that offense is Kittle

Lots of inexperienced fantasy football GMs here I see.  Wish I had more people like you in my league.

I’ll have to dig up the game splits but Coutee actually kills Fuller’s volume whenever they’ve both been on the field.
