His receiving ability is very impressive. He isn't just a body catcher like you see with many RBs, he can catch outside of his frame consistently and even extend to high point throws. I can easily see him racking up 50 catches a season in the right offense.
Hubbard may well look great at the combine but I don't think teams are going to watch his tape and fall for it. He's a one dimensional back in the mould of Tevin Coleman and he'll get picked day 3. The only way I will have interest in him is late in the 2nd round of rookie drafts or later and if he goes to the right kind of team to utilise him like the 49ers.Mike11 wrote: ↑Wed Dec 23, 2020 11:40 amI have a weird feeling we’re going to see Hubbard blow the roof off the combine and he’ll wedge himself in with Javonte Williams as either Tier 2 or the four all land in good spots. I need to watch more tape, Williams tape legitimately pops to me in a huge way. If a team gives him day 2 capital (more importantly round 2) I feel good with him if I need a rb.
I think being at 1.04 with Fields on the board gives you some options. You can try to move the pick for a running back to a QB needy team and/or an Buckeyes homer, try to slide down a few slots if you think 1.05 take Chase or take Fields and move Burrow if you think he lands you a better RB than Fields will. Grabbing Williams at 1.04 is giving a gift to the guy drafting at 1.05, leaving value on the table. I have to think you could get a higher profile running back for the pick.Mike11 wrote: ↑Wed Dec 23, 2020 11:40 amI’m in an interesting spot. I have 1.04, I know Lawrence is going 1.01 but Fields will not go 2 or 3. I have Dak and Burrow so I’m not interested in Fields there, it’s a 10 team 2 QB league but I also have 13 and 17.
I’d much rather get a rb at 4 than take chase but it’s likely Harris and Etienne leave. That means I might need to determine if Williams is worth taking over chase. I could then go to a tier 2/3 wr at 13 or a tier 2 QB if one falls. I think like most leagues you just can’t get an rb if you don’t have a top 5 pick.
