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

Gaskin is priced right now at RB34. That reflects the possibility that Miami doesn’t take anybody. He might see a small bump if they don’t, but how much do you think his stock actually rises? If you can get a return that’s commensurate with his current ADP, I would just take it. Tevin Coleman is pri...

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

I’m seeing mostly players whose value is already tanked because the community currently assumes the draft will hurt them. Benny Snell is already priced as though he’s Najee Harris’ backup. I doubt his value goes down. Tevin Coleman is also clearly priced like a backup; I doubt his value changes noti...

Re: 2021 Rookie Tiers

The problem is that NFL teams get it wrong ALL. THE. TIME. The fact that the NFL and half the fantasy community were wrong about Taylor does not change that he has always had the profile of an outstanding* NFL prospect. The teams that didn't draft Taylor may not have gotten it wrong; they just had ...

Re: 2021 Rookie Tiers

The Taylor thing is all over the place. Here’s what happened. First, there’s a difference between “what the fantasy community thinks,” “what happened in the NFL draft,” and “what the best evidence shows.” A lot of the conversation regarding Taylor has conflated these concepts. The fantasy community ...

Am I the only one who thinks they go full Bengals and take Micah Parsons?
See I think going “full-Bengals” just means taking whoever Mel Kiper has ranked highest when they pick. I doubt they take Parsons, I think it will be Chase or Pitts.

Re: James Conner

Edmonds played in every game last season. He also had a better ypc than Conner last season. Conner simply cannot hold up to the grind of the season. He has missed games in literally every season in the NFL. These two should pair nicely. Edmonds will get an uptick in touches while Conner gets about ...

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...
