Well that was kind of the whole point. His legs give him both a higher floor and higher ceiling. He needs only be a mediocre passing QB to be a good FF QB and he was a better than mediocre passing prospect.FantasyFreak wrote: ↑Sun Oct 06, 2019 10:56 pmBump. Just wanted to say I do like Kyler, but thought some comments around here were a bit out of whack. The floor was a lot lower than some would have wanted. Kyler is bumping his FF totals in the past few weeks with his legs. However he has throw 4 TD's in 201 attempts. That's 1 TD for every 50 attempts. He's got a long way to go, and he just simply has not lived up to some of the off season hype people were throwing at him. Everybody knew the situation he was coming into. People talking Baker's rookie year as his floor, top 5 QB, league winner etc. Maybe the 2nd half will be different, but to this point, it seems the hype got out of control.
So far the real outlier for Kyler has been Arizona's AWFUL conversion rate inside the 10. If they were even mediocre in that respect he'd be in the top 5 in scoring right now and even with them among the league worst at it he is still QB8 as a developing rookie. The low conversion rate inside the 10 is something that is both kind of flukey and somewhat easily correctable.
I don't know why you're trying to pick on the "Baker's rookie season is his floor" lingo when he's scoring 22ppg so far while Baker put up 19ppg as a rookie.
