Underdogs!!!

Postby Heartwork » Sat Jun 15, 2019 5:02 am

Who is an under the radar player you are secretly rooting for? Mine is Darius Slayton. I think he has a chance to make some noise in his first season due to lack of depth and skill set.

I’m pumping up Scotty Miller where people will listen.

I’m less certain of, but really cheering for, Jalen Hurd. Curious to see how Shanahan employs his versatility.

Is Shaheen an underdog? He was a second round pick just a couple years ago...

Teddy Bridgewater is easy to root for because of what he went through to come back - however, I still feel that he is a mediocre talent.

Not fantasy related - but also rooting for Shaquill Griffin.

Other than that - I don't really have any underdogs that I am "rooting" for; I have lots of fliers on my team that I would like to see work out obviously.
Do you want a logical debate?
You are in the wrong place.

I went with a few players who are underdogs in the fantasy community sense (imo). Based on where his ADP and cost of acquisition in startups/trades I certainly think so - especially in light of this new crop of 2019 TEs.

James Conner. Not because he's a bad player, but because he overcame a terrible illness, and generally seems like a good dude.

Tyree Jackson UDFA QB in Buffalo, from Buffalo. He was projected as a third or fourth round pick, but he went undrafted for some reason that isn't clear to me. He has a cannon for an arm, and he can run. He also looks more accurate than Josh Allen.

With poor qbs like Allen and Lamar Jackson, it makes no sense to me why Tyree didn't get the same buzz coming out. Allen is so innacurate that Jackson may get some real buzz taking over by next year. I'm hoping he has some good opportunities in the preseason

Corey Coleman is my guy who's ironically competing for the same spot!

You could also add Jake Kumerow, John Ross, Tre'quan Smith (he should be valued higher as the #2 in a high octane offense), Cody Thompson

Stop it, you're exaggerating. He is merely walking with a cane. Lets not get out of hand.
