Re: Russell Wilson QB SEA

I have been thinking since I originally posted this thread. What are the main arguments against an 'undersized' QB in the NFL? I'm not asking this rhetorically, I am honestly trying to figure it out. The primary ones I have thought of are: 1.) Not able to survey field because vision is hampered by l...

Re: Julio vs AJ

In a track and field event, I would take Julio. In football, I would take AJ. Both are likely going to be great, however for me at this point it is easily AJ for the same reasons that many are choosing Julio. Namely, a better QB, better situation for Julio. AJ has already produced as a rookie while ...

Russell Wilson QB SEA

I really didn't know about him until doing some reading before the NFL draft in April. The more I learn about him, the more I like him. It seems the biggest knock on him by NFL scouts is his height(5'-11"). Last night he looked very good. I know he played against 2nd and 3rd stringers, so to project...

Re: Kenny Britt Contrarian View

No, I don't assume. I traded a player(Garcon) whose production is replaceable. If Britt never plays another down, I will still be able to replace the production of Garcon. Essentially I have purchased a long term call option on Britt for a minimal price. The risk/reward is strongly in my favor. Yea...

Re: Kenny Britt Contrarian View

Some people have a high threshold for risk on some players and some have a lower threshold on some players. For a player such as Britt with all of his issues, however talented, I, and others, have a lower threshold for risk. Sure his upside is special but will he ever make it more than just upside?...

Re: Kenny Britt Contrarian View

And the context of throwing numbers out there to prove a point needs to be considered as well. You stated that since becoming a starter, he has averaged 100 yards and a TD per game. Not quite true. He's played in 15 games since the beginning of 2010 and produced 1064 yards and 12 TD's (or 1046 yard...

Re: Kenny Britt Contrarian View

Britt > Garcon, simple as that. You can't look blindly at stats because you lose some very important context to those stats. But hey, to each their own. I traded for britt in 3 leagues and absolutely trade raped the britt owner in all 3. I want to be careful here as I am jumping on this debate late...

Re: Kenny Britt Contrarian View

In PPR Garcon was the 19th best WR last year; how is trading a 26-year old who just put up 70/950/6 with no QBs last year and who will be catching passes from RGIII next year not overpay for Britt at this point? Solid WR2 with low WR1 upside. If you can get Britt for late 1st or 2nd round pick valu...

Re: Kenny Britt Contrarian View

Sorry, I should have included this in original post.

I traded Garcon & 3.05 for Britt. I am in a 12 team PPR IDP league.

Kenny Britt Contrarian View

I believe it was Rothschild who said: “Buy when there’s blood in the street.” I know I am going to get a lot of grief for saying this, but I think everyone should strongly consider trading for Britt. I traded for Britt two days ago. Why? Here is my reasoning: His value is at an all time low. I have ...
