Re: 2021 Rookie Tiers

this to me is the same as dinging fields for leaving Georgia. Thats just a smart business decision. They knew that they'd easily be at the top of the class in '21, which means better draft capital, which means more money. It is a smart business decision, but it also means they weren't as good as th...

Re: 2021 Rookie Tiers

This really is a terrible running back class. I’d have it something like this (with rookie ADPs): Tier 1 (top 5 pick): Etienne, Javonte Tier 2 (late first): Najee Daylight Tier 3 (second round) Hill, Sermon Daylight Tier 4 (old but athletic fliers 4th round +): Herbert, Evans, Funk That is really a...

Re: Kyle Pitts

Yeah, I mean the comparison is "asymmetric" right now. There are two major differences in the way I see these classes and their post-draft bumps. 1. CEH- I think it's basically impossible that we see somebody get a CEH bump- somebody outside the top 6 jumping to 1st or second and pushing everybody e...

Re: Kyle Pitts

Right - basically it will come down to your perspective and who you're going to expect him to be. I certainly cannot argue that if you (in the general sense) are an owner who compared and expected Vernon Davis to be HOF material, then he'll appear to have underachieved. However as we both agreed th...

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

My verdict is still out on Akers. He couldn't beat out Malcom Brown on several occasions and was declared inactive several times in the early going. He had one great fantasy game in the regular season and then some good playoff games. It was enough to make me wonder if I'm wrong but not enough to c...

Re: Kyle Pitts

The idea that being useless as a blocker is somehow a good thing because it means the TE will be deployed more as a pass catcher only works if the team has no other options at TE, or if you're clearly one of your team's 3 best pass catchers. Being on the field matters. I don't think any of this app...

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 p...

Re: Darnold traded to Carolina

No. In 10 team SuperFlex QBs just aren’t scarce enough and the pick can be no lower than 10th.

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

Everyone goes into dynasty learning, understanding, and accepting that the TE position is the most slow burn position, but has the most upside because there aren't many studs there. This is an interesting thing, but I’m not sure it’s true; I think it might be QB. The difference seems to be that we’...

Re: Is it time to panic with Deshaun Watson yet?

For those that keep insisting the Texans have orchestrated this, Buzzbee just threw some accountability for Watson at them, and implied they have a role in Watson's behaviour. Said it in a very careful roundabout way as he's a lawyer obviously. They absolutely knew about the incidents and likely pl...

Maybe I should have said I trust my onw instincts sometimes over the consensus if I feel strongly.
