Re: DK Metcalf is your 1.01 now.

I believe it was Bill Belichick who said the following: "“Talent sets the floor, character sets the ceiling.”" ""Do not focus on what a player cannot do, focus on what he can do"" Something to keep in mind for DK Metcalf, and any other prospects you are scouting. The Patriots after all are the mast...

Re: DK Metcalf is your 1.01 now.

Even those stats are misleading. He lit up the directional schools and lesser competition. If he didnt hit the big play, he was virtually nonexistent in SEC competition. Everyone points to the 75 yard TD vs Bama, but you know he finished the game with only 1 more catch right? I know that he is your...

Re: O.K. So who IS your 1.01?

If a RB is drafted on day 1 or 2 by the Chiefs, that's your 1.01 right there. I get the logic, but that sounds extremely risky. Marquise Brown remains the best WR I've seen, though the LisFranc throws a wrench into the equation. It really depends on how NFL evaluators view that injury. If not him, ...

Gronk's agent isn't ruling out Gronk returning at some point in 2019.

Wherever I own Gronk I'm holding.
I remember hearing Calvin Johnson owners saying that too!
Some people still have Megatron rostered.

Re: Players with an Injured reputation

Diggs is also frequently hobbled and if he was not he'd be a top 5 asset instead of top 10 I still don't get why this is a narrative. If we exclude his rookie year where he was a healthy inactive for 3 games, he's only missed 6 games out of 48. That's not some abnormal amount of games missed for so...

Re: Players with an Injured reputation

Jordan Reed. He is always hurt, but can still put up decent TE numbers if you don't want to pay for the position. He's super cheap right now, but don't expect him to be available a lot. Yeah, if you get Jordan Reed you better have a strong backup to offset the injuries. But, he's probably not a str...

Re: DK Metcalf is your 1.01 now.

Demaryius Thomas is a good example of an athletic receiver who was only good at a couple routes. He was also worthless until year 3 when he got Peyton Manning. Giving any draft prospect an elite QB definitely helps in outlook. Thomas is a good example of running a few routes at an elite level to po...

Re: DK Metcalf is your 1.01 now.

I have been breaking down tape for decades now and did it twice in this thread. I have also heard from several here that he is raw in route running. Granted he didn't run every route in college but that is the system. Mike Evans certainly didn't run every route either. The key is the routes they ac...

Re: DK Metcalf is your 1.01 now.

Always like playing fantasy football against owners that worry more about some perceived floor of a player than actual talent of the player. I have seen it every year now for decades. No doubt there are plenty that see a glass of water as half empty. There are plenty foolishly enough to believe tha...

Re: Chris Godwin Heat Check

I was reading an article that argued Evans was a sell this offseason. The crux of it was Godwin has a more well-riunded game and athletic profile. I think that's why Evans and Godwin are good compliments. Evans brings size, possession receiving and redzone prowess, while Godwin brings sharper route...

Re: DK Metcalf is your 1.01 now.

Again, you do not need to be fast or athletic to be a great NFL WR. The fact that Metcalf is certainly doesn't hurt, but it also doesn't make him a good WR either. See Devante Parker, Dorial Green-Beckham, Darrius Heyward-Bey, Donte Moncrief, and countless other size/speed WR's who flopped in the NF...

Re: DK Metcalf is your 1.01 now.

Even if you ignore the 3-cone, when you watch games Metcalf isn't showing any twitch or wiggle when he runs routes, and has slow feet when changing direction. He's a potentially dangerous straight line receiver and that's it. So, you can excuse it as "Ha! He just slipped, no big deal" but that numbe...
