    The NFL Network would be smart to hire Clayton. Nerdy football fans are one of the fastest growing segments of the NFL fan base and Clayton is person with who they can identify. And advertisers love nerds because they have a lot of disposable income.

    Isn't this around the time of the year when the "best shape of his life" news starts picking up also?

    People said the same things about Cordarrelle Patterson. He played 40% of snaps his rookie year and managed to get 9 touchdowns (4 receiving, 3 rushing, 2 return). Patterson ended up with an MFL adp of 40 in his sophomore year. People talked about his immense natural talents and how offensive guru Norv Turner was going to use Patterson in a million different ways to get the ball in his hands. History has not been kind to players who aren't traditional receivers but are labeled "playmakers". They might take the league by surprise one year but have trouble maintaining a high level when teams game plan for them. I'll still likely be drafting him because of his high ceiling but I'm not at all confident about the pick.

    Barnidge could be a nice addition to a team since he is a capable blocker and receiver. But fantasywise, a tight end who projects to 50 receptions, 500 yards, and 5 touchdowns isn't roster worthy. Personally, I think he should consider joining the upcoming Star Trek: Discovery tv series as a Cardassian.

    What a disaster. As long as he does not wind up sitting next to Deion Sanders or Skip Bayless, I'll watch John Clayton wherever he goes.

    As I’m sure you will all have seen, Scott Ryan (Irish) is taking a step back from fantasy football this year. He has been highly active in many leagues here on The Huddle, even acting as commissioner in several leagues each year, and has always been a vocal and visible presence on the boards. I just wanted to offer three cheers for Scott and say that the game will not be the same without him! He did the work of ten people, leading countless leagues for years, and I’m sure a lot of our fellow Huddlers will want to join me in thanking him for all of the hard work he has put into organising this game that we love. Finding people to step into his shoes will not be easy! Thank you for all of your efforts, Scott, and good luck with whatever you go onto next!

    Looked at one of the leagues and 91.5 out of 204 points came off 3 games. That's 45% of his scoring for the season. He had 5 single digit games including a duck in week 12. Those that want to crown him then crown him, but based off the hype train we're already seeing in this thread I think people are going to be overpaying in the draft.

    I'm working on the assumption that Edelman, Gronk, and Cooks will generally be on the field and that Hogan, Mitchell, and Dwayne Allen will be fighting for the remaining spot on the field (assuming a one running back formation). While Hogan did lead the league last year in yards-per-catch at 17.9 and was awesome in the playoff game against the Steelers, his 38 receptions while playing 74% of snaps wasn't very productive on such a prolific offense. My guess is that he didn't get separation on a regular basis and that Belichick plans on using him significantly less this year. Brady is currently 10,358 yards and 83 touchdowns from being the all-time leader in both categories. Him breaking both of these records in 2 years isn't out of the realm of possibility (though Drew Brees may push both records higher). Passing deep often will help him break these records.

    Thx goose, I appreciate the kind words and have enjoyed playing this game for many, many years. This will be the first time since 1989 that I will not take part in FF. I will miss it dearly but my family, especially with 4 kids, really need all that I can give them. I will be back some day. In the meantime, enjoy all!

    I say get it while you can. What's the point of exerting yourself to become one of the tops in your field if you don't get to enjoy the fruits of your labor, especially when the window of opportunity is so small. Remember when Tony Romo used to tap Jessica Simpson? I think he banged Carrie Underwood also? And that chick from One Tree Hill? Next thing you know, guy settles down and gets married and his backbone turns to dust. Coincidence? I think not. Live like a gladiator, play like a gladiator. Put that ring on and put a load on your back, you end up broken and Dak'd. Oh yeah and sitting in a booth making millions talking about football, but hey....

    I'd probably go Julio. When healthy, he's the best WR in the league, and I think he'll be closer to that this year, than last.

    Tyreek Hill only played 40% of offensive snaps last year and yet managed 6 receiving touchdowns and 3 rushing touchdowns in addition to 3 return touchdowns. Dude was electric. He has an overall adp of 43 this year which puts him as the 23rd highest wide receiver. Andy Reid has said he'll be their Z receiver. My guess is his time at the Z will be limited and they'll line him up at different spots on the field to be unpredictable and to create mismatches. He'll probably even line up in the backfield a fair amount. Few gadget players who show promise do end up becoming elite. Will Tyreek be able to ascend to WR1 status this year with opposing defenses surely focusing on him?

    I think Jones is buried and listed as like 5th on their depth chart. I think him getting traded or picked up would be best case scenario, but even then he'd probably wouldn't play unless there was an injury. Kelley will be the starter but there's still Chris Thompson who's an effective 3rd down back, and there's a lot of hype around Perine so that worries me about a potential timeshare mid season. That being said, I think the Redskins offense will be great this year and score a lot of TDs. Cousins, Reed, Crowder, and Pryor should all be good assets, but I think i'm gonna stay away from their RB's, maybe picking up Perine later in the draft.

    I'll be staying away from Titans' receivers until Mariotta proves he can produce a quality receiver. I have trouble seeing any of them even ascending to tier 2 status.

    Cooks is 13th on the early Huddle WR rankings, that makes him a WR2 in a 12 team league. Is DMD nuts? Saying "at best a WR2 may be insane, if he's top 15-20 even that's a clear WR2.

    Brady didn't need to throw deep to Moss but he did. I honestly think New England is the best place in the NFL for Cooks to have landed. Whereas Brees has a fairly weak arm and his shortness makes it difficult to see far down the field, Brady is tall with a strong arm. And teams won't be able to focus on Cooks with Gronk and Edelman on the field. If Cooks gets open, Brady will throw to him. And Cooks might be the best in the NFL at getting open deep. I don't think Opie and I qualify as a hype train unless you are thinking one of those kiddie trains they have at the mini golf course. Cooks has an MFL adp of 25. Lots of cheat sheets have him lower. Some cheat sheets have him in the 4th and 5th round. Granted, if Cooks gets a couple of preseason touchdowns his adp will skyrocket. I have Cooks at 14 or 15 on my board. But obviously it'd be a lot sweeter to get Cooks at the bottom of round two than the top. And I don't consider Cooks to be taking a chance. He might be a bit inconsistent but that is different than being risky. Risky means that he could flop and I don't see that happening. I think his floor is 75 receptions, 1,100 yards, and 10 touchdowns. Brady has only spread the ball around to receivers with average talent. Gronk is statistically the best tight end ever. Moss set the receiving touchdown record with Brady. Welker and Edelman perennially put up huge reception totals with Brady. I don't think that the fact that New England's running backs or Danny Amendola types were inconsistent reflects on Cooks. Has New England ever has an upper echelon wide receiver who underachieved with Brady at the helm?

    I know I can, but all list are debatable so meh to doing this again. Better question at this point is are you comfortable spending your 1st round pick on Cooks without knowing how he'll be used? If so, power to you and God bless. Personally I like to take my chances later if possible.

    I like Cooks and I would have him higher in almost any offense besides the Patriots. Brady just really doesn't need to throw the deep ball some games. Players I would draft over Cooks in a PPR league today would be Brown, OBJ, JJones, Evans, Thomas, Bryant, Green, Cooper, Nelson, and Hilton. I'd put Cooks right there next with Hopkins and Robinson. Again, it's not really a knock on Cooks...I just don't think he gets the 120+ targets (including runs) he saw last season with Brees. Figure 80-100 is much more realistic in the Patriots offense.

    E2A: for clarity's sake... yeah, I'd take OBJ, Evans, Julio and Antonio over Cooks. Between Cooks, Jordy, Thomas and AJ... it's close. No way in hell I'd take Hopkins, Hilton, Bryant, Pryor, A-Rob, Cooper/Crabtree or Baldwin over Cooks.

    Sounds like you've already talked yourself into him as I was just trying to answer your question why isn't he basically getting that much love. I wish you the best if you can snag him. The 3rd round might not be that bad if he falls that far, but you will probably have to pay for him in the 2nd round and JMHO that's a bit too much to pay for one of Darth Hoodie's players.

    The other thread about scoring rules got me thinking about rookie drafts in superflex leagues. I haven't quite settled on this, but here is what I think my board looks like: 1. Mahomes - I think he clearly has the most upside with his natural ability and playing for Andy Reid. The downside is that he probably won't be of any use in year one. 2. Kizer - Similar to Mahomes. I think he is second in terms of ability and he gets to play for Hugh Jackson. My guess is that he is the starter in Cleveland before the year is out. 3. Watson - Great landing spot to be the starter in week 1. I loved watching him in college was but was pretty disappointed by his measured arm strength. 4. Trubisky - I think he was a one-year-wonder at UNC and he landed in one hell of a hot mess. Hard pass at his ADP. If he falls to the 4th in a 2QB or superflex I may be a buyer then. I am also thinking that a flyer on Chad Kelley would be a good investment. He should be there in the 4th, if not the 5th. At that point, everything is a shot in the dark. Any other 2QB Huddlers out there with to share? What's your order for the top 4 and who is your late round wild card?
