Re: Russell Wilson/Seahawks Split?

To me, any NFL team hiring Brian Schottenheimer as their OC these days is clueless. Wilson, as you mentioned, makes these guys look decent, just because of his ability to improvise. It feels like most great coaches don't revert their style when defenses figure them out for a few games. They just ad...

Re: Kyle Pitts

I agree with you that yes, taking a TE at #6 overall probably gave unreal expectations, both in the NFL and for fantasy purposes. As far as I can tell, and drafthistory is a little confusing the further back you go, Davis remains one of the highest drafted TE of all time. I believe Ditka was the on...

Re: Kyle Pitts

There's so much that goes into TE beyond catching passes. Hell, even Vernon Davis, who is considered an all-time TE prospect and went 6th overall, was mostly an underachiever. He only had a few good years. My response is a general response but the Davis portion is a response to the above. Davis onl...

Re: Kyle Pitts

Being a much more valuable real life player and being a much more valuable fantasy player aren't always mutually exclusive though. Pitts just needs to not be a sieve and his pros as a receiver will far outweigh his deficiencies as a blocker. I feel like we're agreeing, because I'm not saying that P...

Re: Kyle Pitts

Jimmy Graham left a pass first situation in NOLA where he was seeing 120+ targets to a run first situation in Seattle where he never saw more than 95 targets. He was a TE1 up until his age 31 season, which is also the age we tend to see WRs start to fall off the cliff. His injury happened during hi...

Re: Kyle Pitts

You can improve your blocking skills. That can be taught. Having trouble thinking of any recently-lauded TEs who came in with questionable or worse blocking skills and became good blockers in the NFL. It's definitely not a long list if there are examples. I would argue that blocking is actually ver...

Re: Bengals + Chase?

I feel like there's more WR depth in this class than OL depth.

From a real football perspective, taking Chase over Sewell doesn't make a lot of sense. But, maybe the Bengals think there's someone in the 2nd round they can get who would be just as good as Sewell.

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

He just lost his Beats sponsorship and Nike suspended their sponsorship. So, he's paying in a lot more ways than a settlement now.

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...

Re: Kyle Pitts

The thing with Waller being a converted WR only makes the point that TE are unpredictable, even stronger Exactly. Waller's success enforces the point that TE success is random and isn't always about raw talent, like RB and sometimes WR. Do I think Pitts will be really good? Yes. I dont know how lon...

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

Sure, but I think youre ignoring both parties involved. If I took Hock/Fant in the late first area, why would I trade them for a mid 2nd or worse? I still have to start a TE, so am I getting mid 2nd + a startable TE for Hock? If a team has similar production from a TE that they pulled off the WW (T...

Re: Darnold traded to Carolina

Darnold used to pepper Crowder in the slot and made him fantasy relevant. Could Carolina use DJ Moore in the slot more often or is DJ better suited as an outside guy? I think this was an Adam Gase thing more than anything, especially when you look at Landry's numbers in Miami. They could use anothe...

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

Whether it's someone in the Texans or someone who basically operates for them in an unofficial manner (back channels), someone made sure this story got out there at this specific moment in time. There is a third possibility that you seem to have overlooked: One woman who was sexually assaulted had ...
