Re: Opinion: Travis Etienne is the best RB prospect since Barkley

he’s probably the consensus RB1 :think: Probably because Harris had a much better year. Josh Jacobs never rushed for more than 640 yards in any of his three years at Alabama, and not only was he not the best RB in college (based on stats) he wasn't even the best RB on his team (Damien Harris). He w...

Re: GEDL Rookie Draft 2021

I've grown to love this post and thread. It's become one of my favorite posts of the year, and I didn't used to feel the way. Thanks for posting Mark. GL in the draft! EDIT: Btw, Burlington Bucks? It has the same logo as the Vermont Bucks that used to exist up here in Burlington Vermont. I assume th...

Re: Opinion: Travis Etienne is the best RB prospect since Barkley

Mike, in PPR that is also 1/4 pt per carry, would you still prefer Etienne over Harris? Or would that scoring system change things for you? Bonus question, in that format but superflex as well, would you take T. Lance or Etienne? First Question: It's going to heavily depend on placement. If I was f...

Re: Is Reagor the top WR to get in 2020?

I think that whole offense was doomed. I read so many things about how it was unnecessarily complex and every-changing for the last few years. Remember how Wentz was on his MVP run before his injury? How did he go from MVP and future superstar to bust so quickly? The theory is that the fault lies wi...

Re: Opinion: Travis Etienne is the best RB prospect since Barkley

For instance you mentioned above that Arizona would be a great landing spot for ETN. But let's not forget this is the same Arizona that took Kenyan Drake, a similar style of running back, and turned him into a pound up the middle 2 yards and a cloud of dust banger than never got the ball outside an...

Re: What players on your team(s) are you scared will have their values shot by the draft?

Basically everyone in my team 1 sig except for JT and Dillon, who has already been shot. Gaskin, Mostert, Snell/McFarland all seem likely to be replaced Whoa whoa whoa... does your league legit have a 10 round rookie draft? I must have missed the point of this thread? Or maybe I'm just confused on ...

Re: Opinion: Travis Etienne is the best RB prospect since Barkley

Re: Sanders... Do you think ETN compares to him a bit? Oh boy, that's a fun one. I think Sanders -- has more power -- is better at breaking tackles -- has better lateral quickness -- is the better overall runner I think Etienne -- has better vision (not hard to do, Sanders had terrible vision out o...

Re: Opinion: Travis Etienne is the best RB prospect since Barkley

but to me he is nowhere near the pure rushing talent of JT and nowhere near the overall talent as Barkley. Then we agree, actually. Pure rusher = JT wins hands down. I expect more of a Kamara-type career with Etienne. Do you know how many 1,000 yard rushing seasons Kamara has had? Zero. But he's el...

Re: Opinion: Travis Etienne is the best RB prospect since Barkley

This article is making me question my choice at 1.01. I was leaning Najee but based on this I may have to reconsider. What are the dream landing spots for ETN? Also @dlf_mikeh I really appreciate the insight & the article. Awesome job and thank you. I am curious though... you put some of your best ...

Re: Travis Etienne is the best RB prospect since Barkley

if he’s drafted to be used in a traditional manner as a 3 down back where he’s expected to run inside as well as operate in space, I believe that plays into his weakness Agreed. He’s much more landing spot dependent than Williams or Harris, again IMO. Yep, agreed again. I think Harris can absolutel...

Re: Travis Etienne is the best RB prospect since Barkley

I replied once but if I cannot support the claim without the proof to back it up, then I don't want to post it, so I deleted it. I do not think Kamara is the best pure runner in the NFL, nor do I think Etienne will be, but what separates these two from other RBs is their ability to catch passes and ...

Opinion: Travis Etienne is the best RB prospect since Barkley

Now that my article finally posted, I can say what I've wanted to say for some time. Etienne is the next CMC/Kamara/Cook type RB to hit the NFL. He checks all the boxes for me. He runs power and zone, he has great vision to find cut back lanes, he's patient behind his blocks, he's shifty, quick, and...

Re: My over-valued rookie RB for 2021? Javonte Williams

Just curious - where did you have Hunt in the 2017 draft? Their running styles and pass catching/route running are very similar and their combine/pro day numbers are almost identical except that Williams might be a slight shade stronger and more explosive. I know I got Hunt in the back end of the 1...
