Re: sanders overrated as a rusher or is Howard underrated?

Howard offers absolutely nothing as a receiver. That’s why there is such a disparity in their ranking. Also, if you’re going to do a comparison like this, the least you do is eliminate the top rush of both guys. It’s still pretty meaningless, but at least its equal.

Re: Bargain players than need to be shopped

There are only 5 WRs that have played more games in the last 5 years than Cooks. He's been available for 92% of his career games. I like Cooks and think he'll have a nice season, but some of these stats are a little loose with the truth. Sure, he started a lot of games. How many did he not finish? ...

Re: Rank Em: Gibson, McFarland, Evans, Kelly, Bowden

Evans - Has a clear role as the passing down complement to Henry and has enough rushing skills to have some upside. Gibson - No idea how he’ll turn out, but the clear upside guy of the group and fairly likely to get some run. McFarland - Great speed and agility, but lacks power and burst. I expect h...

Re: Cam Newton to Patriots

At this point, Cam’s options were: 1) Sign with the Pats. 2) Wait until he can do a physical and hope that improves his market, though he’d likely be signing as a backup which would likely to depress his value next year. 3) Wait for an injury. In a year like this getting into camp early seems like t...

Re: Deebo Samuel Broken Foot

1 hour agoSan Francisco 49ers wide receiver Deebo Samuel (foot) is dealing with a classic Jones fracture and could be ready to return in 10 to 12 weeks rather than the 12 to 16 weeks that was originally reported. Samuel could still be pushing it to be ready for the start of the regular season, and ...

Re: Cam Newton to Patriots

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports Cam Newton's contract includes $550,000 guaranteed. The details include a $1.05 million base salary with $700,000 in per-game roster bonuses that could cap at $7.5 million. It's truly a bare-minimum 'prove it' deal for Newton as the Patriots were the only team in ...

Re: Cam Newton to Patriots

Their O-line and defense are solid. The only real weakness is WR. Wouldn't be surprised if they work a deal for an older veteran WR with an expiring contract. They don’t lack for talent at WR. If they can figure out how to keep Marqise Lee healthy, he offers tremendous upside. Edelman is Edleman an...

Re: Clyde Edwards-Helaire is your new 1.01

In PPR, I don't see how you don't take CEH at #1. I have JT as the 1.01 in .5 PPR and standard, but in PPR the top 2 leading rushers in the NFL finished at RB5 and RB7 respectively because neither Henry nor Chubb catch a lot of passes. Nothing wrong with those guys, but I don't think they have a ch...

Re: We're all sleeping on Michael Pittman

The biggest criticism I have of the dominator rating/breakout age/early declare grouping as they are currently used is that every single one of them piggy back on draft position. The problem with this is that draft position is not a static dataset, nor is it an exact stand in for talent level. You’...

Re: Cam Newton to Patriots

💯 Cam and Stidham are dirt cheap, whether he hits the incentives or not Bill circumvents the cheap rookie contract QB by getting a cheap somewhat risky veteran with a less highly touted rookie. Unfortunately, the cap space available from this isn't providing a strong roster, on paper. Their O-line ...

Re: The Deepest Sleepers

What do you guys think about Kirk Merritt? I watched the Geogia game. Solid athlete, but the first thing that should stand out is that he was a 23 year old senior playing slot for Arkansas State. He came out on two wide formations and they ran two wide a fair bit. He sets up in the flat a lot and h...

Re: Clyde Edwards-Helaire is your new 1.01

Yeah Wisconsin's vaunted OL compared to the "awful" OLs other top RB prospects ran behind at *checks notes* Georgia, LSU and Ohio State? Their OL still dominated in most games. The level of competition was not great. JT certainly maximized it, but it isn't the SEC. Other than Ohio St., Oregon, and ...

Re: Clyde Edwards-Helaire is your new 1.01

Is his value inflated because of landing spot or was his value pre-draft deflated due to questions surrounding proper utilization of his skillset? Any coach can hand the ball off to a guy and ask him to run forward. Not every coach can scheme to get the ball in their playmakers hands through the ai...

Re: Chase Claypool

There was a very early narrative that he wasn't that good. The FF community tends to be a bit over their heads (IMO) overall, on their scouting ability. The Steelers appear to have missed on Washington, but hit on Dinotae. Hit on Juju, obviously hit on AB. The Steelers seem to know what they are do...

Re: Clyde Edwards-Helaire is your new 1.01

There are plenty of RBs that fit CEH's mold, most of them just aren't particularly good fantasy RBs. Outliers certainly exist, but betting on them is a risky proposition. He's not the lock that Zeke and Gurley were, yet his startup ADP is identical to their rookie years. CEH landed in the most opti...
