Strong Safety battles... *Open Mic Thread*

Postby lukkynumber13 » Sat Aug 19, 2017 4:53 pm

The 3 teams I'm very interested in are Chicago, Houston, & Dallas.

Chicago's starting SS has usually been pretty good for fantasy but last year it was a revolving door (similar to Cleveland). There are at least 4 guys that could start at SS week 1...

Houston, the starting SS there has NOT been a historically valuable asset. But I am still curious as to whether or not KJ Dillon will win that job. He may have a higher IDP ceiling than his old college teammate (Karl Joseph)

Dallas is a goofy one... we all love Byron Jones' upside and athleticsm, but we don't even know if he'll be a SS or a FS. Xavier Woods and Jeff Heath get thrown around a bit...

Just did my rookie draft and I still have a couple roster spots open. Thinking about rolling the dice with Heath when our FA window opens. The good news is I doubt Xavier Woods is on anyone's radar in my league, so I can always make a quick change if I'm wrong.

Houston & Chicago are beyond frustrating. Lol!

Based on week 3 of the preseason being done, do we have any headway on guys like KJ Dillon and the Chicago and Dallas safeties?

Heath started at SS from what I could tell, but didn't look that great and hardly lit up the box score. I think anyone expecting Barry Church numbers from him is going to be disappointed, especially with Smith instead of Hitchens in front of him. DB3 for me (until he loses his job to Woods).

I currently have Byron Jones as one of my starters (tackle heavy), ride out week 1 and see how he does?

So, for my Indianapolis Colts SS gig:

Farley has been an IDP beast filling in for Geathers, and he's played pretty well in real life too. Geathers is set to return in the next few weeks, so do we think Farley will keep the job? Geathers come off the bench? Geathers start at ILB?

Also, if the Colts were to lose say, the next 3-4 games would they just not even bring Geathers back?

I love Geathers, not sure what will happen when he comes back though. I do recall IND talking about him playing some snaps at ILB this off-season, but due to his inability to stay healthy, I can't imagine they will throw him in an every down role. I hope to see him back in the SS role though, the dude was putting up solid numbers the last couple years when he was starting.

I've really liked what I've seen from Farley so far tho
