    JStew 2.0? That's a kiss of death if I've ever seen one.

    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!

    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.

    Wow the Bucs might possibly consider thinking of doing something or not doing something some undetermined time down the road. Who knew? Florio is a moran.

    McCaffrey isn't good at pass protection. Jonathan Stewart was rated as the best pass blocking running back in the NFL in 2016 by Pro Football Focus. In late March, Carolina signed Stewart to a 2-year/$8 million contract with an additional $1.5 million available in incentives. That is big money for a running back in today's NFL. Since Stewart was signed one month before the draft, you have to figure that Carolina was already eyeing to draft McCaffrey when they signed Stewart. Jonathan Stewart is going to be the starter and McCaffrey is going to be fighting for scraps. Carolina might occasionally use both running backs in the same backfield and could be planning some Ty Montgomery type chicanery and use McCaffrey a bit at wide receiver. But McCaffrey is unlikely to see even 50% of offensive snaps in 2017. An injury to Stewart is McCaffrey's best hope of fulfilling his 3rd round adp. Even then, it could be Fozzy Whittaker who gets the call to be the starting running back.

    It sure seems that the elite tight ends get hurt a lot. Their injury rate has to be higher than that of running backs. Even more reason to wait until rounds 8-14 and then grab two. In the past, I've usually rostered 6 or 7 wide receivers and only 1 tight end and 1 quarterback. I think I might start drafting a 2nd tight end and a 2nd quarterback and only roster 4 or 5 wide receivers.

    This could be a case where Alex Smith's limitations mesh well with Tyreek Hill's limitations. Smith can't throw downfield well. He defines the term dinker-and-dunker. Hill's bread and butter are short passes and hand-offs. Hill managed 61 receptions while only playing 40% of offensive snaps last year. That had to be the best reception-per-snap rate in the NFL. In the 4 games missed by fellow slot receiver Jeremy Maclin due to injury, Hill grabbed 28 receptions. I also think the Chiefs will sometimes use Hill as a running back the way the Packers used Ty Montgomery last year. In week 16, Hill had 6 carries as a running back and managed 95 yards rushing including a 70-yard rushing touchdown. My guess is they are secretly training Hill on pass protection and the intricacies of playing running back. Like what happened with the Wildcat formation, I bet a lot of teams are going to copy the Packers and are going to occasionally line up wide receivers in the backfield to make things a bit more complicated for defenses. If something works in the NFL, you can bet other teams will try it. The one place I doubt the Chiefs use Hill often is split out wide as the Z receiver even though that is where Andy Reid says he will be using him. They are going to keep Hill as close to the weak-armed Smith as possible, try to get the ball in Hill's hands in a variety of ways, and let the fastest player in the NFL do his thing.

    If he was on most other teams I would feel more comfortable with him at his asking price. There's just something about that Reid/Smith led KC offense and their inability to produce reliable fantasy starters that keeps me away every year.

    That was my initial thought as well when I saw that Calvin repaid a portion of his signing bonus (trying to void contract). It really makes no sense to me why he would do that. However, it appears the Lions have the rights to him through the 2019 season. Here it is directly from Megatron: "Calvin's cool, man. I asked Calvin yesterday, I said, 'Hey, Detroit's still got your rights if you, uh, came out of retirement?'" Raiders left tackleDonald Penn said. "He was like, 'Man, they ain't going to let me go nowhere.' But nah, it's good. I seen him over there talking with Coop and [Michael] Crabtree and some of the young guys. Calvin's one of the best that did it so to have him out there picking those guys' brains and giving them advice is great."

    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.

    Titans signed WR Eric Decker to a one-year contract. good signing for all involved, but will mariotta pass enough to make any WR good?
