Re: The Football Data Warehouse

Update : I'm working on updating this with 2015 and 2016 data. I changed my collection methods which should make this a much more sustainable project in the future. Hopefully there will be a new release in the coming months, if I have time to complete it. The way I assembled it the first time aroun...

Re: Cooper & Mariota vs Robinson, 2x '18 1sts, 2x '17 3rds, Bortles

Are these other owners new too? I can see someone slightly preferring Cooper, I guess. He certainly seems to be a dynasty darling and routinely commands an elite price tag despite having never posted so much as a low-end WR1 season. ARob has actually shown the ability to produce an elite-level 300-...

Torn between Cook or Williams at 1.05

Normally I'm all about NFL Draft position, but Williams' apparent injury-proneness is giving me cold feet. In 2015 and 2016 I drafted Kevin White, Laquon Treadwell, and Josh Doctston. I'm wary to get burned again. The top 4 went as expected. This is for the team in my signature. Thoughts? I can go e...

Re: Cooper & Mariota vs Robinson, 2x '18 1sts, 2x '17 3rds, Bortles

With the 'in a vacuum' out of the way, the context. QB|WR|WR|RB|RB|TE|FLX|FLX|DST, all 6pt TD, half-PPR. Team A is a new team to the league who just got his roster via dispersal, Cooper & Mariota were his best players. Team B is me, the Commish, who has a loaded roster. In this league, owners who ar...

Cooper & Mariota vs Robinson, 2x '18 1sts, 2x '17 3rds, Bortles

Full trade:

Team A gets:
- Robinson
- Bortles
- 2018 1st (likely 6ish)
- 2018 1st (likely 8ish)
- 2017 3.05
- 2017 3.10

Team B gets:
- Cooper
- Mariota

Thoughts? This has been a very polarizing trade in the league.

Re: Diggs+ what = OBJ?

Way too low. Minnesota in the foreseeable future won't ever support 2 top 24 WR, so something has to give between Diggs and Treadwell. When push comes to shove, coaching and front office has more invested in their 1st round pick. I don't see Diggs ever cracking top 12-18 on a regular basis, and Trea...

Re: OBJ #1 fantasy asset in FF?

He's an on-field head case who has shown that the other team can mentally influence his game. Say what you will about TO, he didn't get thrown off his game. I don't like him as a football player, I liked him as a dynasty player, but he's shown that he can be neutralized by getting in his head. That'...

Re: Ezekiel Elliott may not be worth the price

I acquired him post draft for White, Henry, and Oz. I'm very happy with that deal, and I think I came out ahead.

He's taken time to warm up but he's looking good.

Re: Disappearing Dez

The best WR's are QB proof (unless that QB is Brandon Weeden but that's another story). The best WR's are not game plan proof. Dez has never gotten the targets that other top WR's have gotten. There are WR2's on some teams that get more targets than Dez. The Cowboys simply run a different offense wi...

Re: Don't overthink NFL draft round

Also nobody is espousing the view that you should never roster or count on late round or UDFA RB's. Arian Foster and Lamar Miller for example are obvious exceptions. The point though is that you should never expect those players to succeed. Let them succeed on someone else's roster. If they show tha...

Re: Don't overthink NFL draft round

That ignores the reality that it's immediately obvious to us that are informed which portion of the 4th-7th/undrafted pile actually warrant attention. It's not just needles in a haystack. These discussions always end up here, and I simply disagree that dynasty GM's are able to beat the odds. From a...

Re: Don't overthink NFL draft round

Jerry Rice, Tim Brown, Marvin Harrison, Reggie Wayne, Steve Smith, Marques Colston, Anquan Boldin, Wes Welker, are you so sure that what we're seeing now with WR is anything different from what we've always seen? It seems to me that the road has not curved at all. There may indeed be a curve in the ...

This would be interesting. Great stuff, regardless.

Don't forget Perine and Freeman, who are primed for big years.

Re: Is Mike Evans a Buy low or sell high?

He had a rookie QB, Lovie Smith, and a soft tissue injury. What more did people want from him?

He's every bit the stud everybody thought he'd be.
