Re: Kyle Pitts

I’m struggling on this question for SF/TE Premium. A high end TE in this format is an almost untradeable unicorn. Lawrence and Fields are widely expected to go 1/2 for rookie drafts, but I’m trying to decide where he belongs after that. (Specifically within the Najee/Etienne/Chase/Wilson/Lance clus...

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

One would think that after telling the forum that current start-up 1.08 Cam Akers was a 3rd round pick, that one would realize that their thoughts on RBs aren’t something they need to announce. Alas. I agree and disagree with this post. I agree Williams is overrated right now in the sense that his ...

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

My opinion on this draft class as a whole, at least as it looks to me right now, is that: 1.) I see one prospect that I would actually make a move to go after. (Chase) 2.) There is a very small tier of 3-4 guys I think will be worth moving up a bit to get [Harris, Etienne, Smith, Bateman (maybe in ...

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

Javonte Williams fantasy success relies almost solely on his NFL draft position and landing spot. If he goes in the 1st round by an NFL team deeming him worthy of a full workload then he's easily worth a first round rookie pick based on the value of the RB position. If he's drafted in the 2nd round...

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

what's your ranking this year? The first installment will be posted in a few days, maybe 4-7 days tbh. We have a lot of writers right now. I think I only have two first-round rated RBs, and a ton in the second and third. Just a lot of average guys imo. Decent players like Williams, but nothing domi...

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

Well here we go again. At least you aren’t hedging like you did last year on Taylor when you called him the most overrated RB in the draft. And like last year, I believe that you are wrong. Williams has a complete 3 down game in all facets of the skills required for NFL RBs and his 40 time has been...

My over-valued rookie RB for 2021? Javonte Williams

With his current ADP, there's no way I'll be selecting him in any of my rookie drafts. Javonte Williams won't be a full on bust but I wouldn't be shocked to see him selected in the third round, fourth round, or even later in the NFL draft. I'd be a little shocked/disappointed to see him taken in the...

Re: OTC - need advice

Draft for value, trade for need.

Take the bpa always. If there's a tie, that's when you take the position of need.

Re: Saquon or Lamb+1.02

Lamb & 1.02, no contest for me.

Lamb alone I think will eventually get towards the same tier as Barkley, and that's assuming Barkley is back to form following his injury. The difference between Lamb & Barkley is not 1.02 imo.

You could probably flip that pick Sanders, and Lamb/Sanders > Barkley.

Re: Thoughts on this team?

Pretty good for someone who punted on QB. Good mix of young and old, and that 1.09 is going to be solid this year. In a TE SF, I wish you had more solid TEs to work with. I like what you have though. Tonyan or Jonnu alone would make me worry. Both combined are decent. We'll see about Firkser (spelle...

Re: Who is your "guy" for this upcoming rookie class?

I'm not yet done with my rookie RB write ups, but I wanna throw Pooka Williams out there. Undersized kid, kind of a Tarik Cohen with more patience and speed. He'll never be a lead back but if you have a late third or fourth and you wanna spend it on a guy who should get you some decent flex points, ...

Re: Unpopular Opinion: You will waste your premium 1st round pick on Kyle Pitts.

Of course I see him as going to be successful. I actually think the History Argument is what is not valid. Taking a player from a different era like Shockey in your example doesn't compute unless you do not see the game evolving. As for V. Davis the only thing he really had in common with Pitts is ...

Re: Unpopular Opinion: You will waste your premium 1st round pick on Kyle Pitts.

But history also suggests that he's more-likely to fail. The last TE that came out of college that garnered hype that was out of control was Jeremy Shockey. He was a can't miss prospect taken 14th overall. The hype on him was insane, and his preseason games only enhanced his value. The result was p...

Re: Unpopular Opinion: You will waste your premium 1st round pick on Kyle Pitts.

I don't think owners of Kelce, Waller, Kittle are selling for 1.05 even in 1QB leagues, so while that scenario would be ideal to drafting Pitts; its not likely to occur at all. As a Waller owner I'd want 2 firsts to even have a discussion on moving him. Most trade value charts and calculators refle...

Re: Unpopular Opinion: You will waste your premium 1st round pick on Kyle Pitts.

I'm not drafting Pitts in standard leagues for all the reasons that Cameron mentioned. If you need a TE and you have the 1.05 and you're considering Pitts, why not reach out to the Kelce, Kittle, Waller, Andrews owners? You'd get an impact TE now instead of taking a chance on the ceiling of Pitts. ...
