Well, only 13 posts on the forum and seems like someone is out to get Mike!
His utter lack of humility combined with the self aggrandizement is fascinating. You think the number of posts at thus forum means anything in particular?
Not gonna lie, I had to look that up. Aggrandizement? Never heard of it.

I've admitted more than once that I feel very comfortable in my ability to accurately peg RBs. I need work in the WR, QB, TE field. I study as much as I can but my confidence in those positions is no where near my RB confidence and that may never change.

And no, 13 posts means nothing. He was just joshing. You used 2-3 of those posts to come at me, that's what's funny is all.
I’m all about good discussion, and I’m even more all about learning things I didn’t know. There’s no animosity, but I’ll admit that if you do have the track record that you claim with RBs - and I have no reason to doubt that - that I am greatly surprised that you feel the need to spike the football like you have done. I would think the track record would do all that is necessary in speaking for itself.

That drew my attention.

I think ppl in general are way too quick to declare victory or defeat. Many players start hot and fizzle out quickly while others start slow but end their careers strong. Small sample size, injuries, coaching and surrounding talent plays all too big a role unfortunately.

lol, good point. Happens every year, but not usually by the new guys.

FWIW, I've been very lucky. There's no way I'm going to continue to have the streak I'm having. I'm enjoying it for now, but sooner than later it'll come to a crashing halt. But for now, weeee!
are you saying that henderson will not be a 3 down back? if so, he was never drafted to be that. the rams picked him to complement gurley in the run game.

if he turns out to be like ekeler i'm sure the rams will be thrilled. although i predict he will much more explosive. expect to see many long range tds from this guy.

^ you’re right about what the Rams wanted out of Henderson. The issue is he was being taken as a top 8 rookie because people were too pessimistic about Gurley and thought they were inheriting his heir apparent in a high powered offense.

Oh yeah because the 7 going in front of him are all guaranteed WR1 and rb1 studs :roll:

I was actually being generous in saying top 8. His rookie ADP is 6 overall. And I’d be more concerned about the value being passed on to take him that early, not the guys who went before him. Hockerson and AJ Brown come to mind.

I have a feeling after the week 2 games we won’t be able to keep quiet about Jalen Hurd anymore. I haven’t seen much talk about him but he made a couple of great catches and nice run after catch for TD.
I did not search this thread too much, so apologies if he has been discussed.

The problem I have with Jalen Hurd is that I have no idea what he is. He has been mentioned as a TE and WR by the 49ers coaching staff at some point this offseason. I'm afraid he is going to end up a gadget player with no consistent fantasy production (Cordarelle Patterson like) and will be more useful in real life on Sundays than on fantasy rosters.

That's not even mentioning the murkiness that is the 49ers offense.

I like him and drafted him, but his first TD was on busted coverage. The linebacker thought the safety was picking him up and realized too late that was not the case. The second TD was against Tyvis Powell, who is apparently a recent Texans cast off and he seemed completely overwhelmed on the play.

That said, he’ll be a solid matchup problem given that Kittle will also be on the field, and he’s looked less raw than I expected given his limited experience at the position. I like that the team seems to have a plan for him and would definitely agree that his stock is pointing up at the moment.
All I Der Is Win - 16 Team IDP League (Pass TD 6pts)

RB - Gordon, Cook, Penny, Guice, Harris, Laird, Love
WR - Julio, C. Davis, AJ Brown, Samuel, Washington, Di. Johnson, Isabella
TE - Henry, Andrews
LB - Kuechly, R. Smith
DL - Hunter, Armstead, Quinn
DB - D. James, Baker, Edmunds
K - Just a stupid kicker

I like murky. It keeps him down low on most boards. I don’t know what he is either but I know what I see. A potential beast. I hope he can carve out a consistent role.

Sorry about that posting mistake. The second-to-last paragraph is my comment. I like murky...

Coutee down with a not-so-pretty leg injury..
I traded him away because of his inability to be tackled properly. It's a skill that's not refined by many players. Jerry Rice talks about it. Marvin Harrison talks about it. All the greats know how to get tackled.

Keke doesn't. His leg folded so awkwardly. I hate that...
I just saw an interview with Clinton Portis saying Guice needs to learn how to go down properly. As a RB guy, curious what you think of that.
