  1. but they play the same position in FF, so... James owners in dynasty would be wise to sell high right now... before it's obvious that X is a better receiver and/or they bring in someone else.
  2. ok, so do not draft/acquire mixon. got it. thanks.
  3. plus, odb got a large shoe contract, so I'd downgrade him y'all.
  4. lol @ WAS having to deal with that for Cousin's contract. dumbasses.
  5. but you're the only one who even mentioned him
  6. lol... starting job. Labriola wrote Grimble "has flashed the ability to be special" but struggles with consistency. Grimble is a more dynamic receiving weapon than presumed starter Jesse James, who has averaged 8.4 yards on 47 career receptions. If he proves more reliable in camp, it would not be surprising to see Grimble push James for the starting job.
  7. so, Jared was good for Subway? Ryan Lochte was good for Speedo, Ralph Lauren, Airweave and Gentle Hair Removal? Johnny Manziel was good for Nike? Ray Rice was good for Vertimax sports equipment? more athletes who lost their sponsorships... http://fortune.com/2014/09/20/ray-rice-adrian-peterson-tiger-woods-athletes-dropped-endorsements/ maybe clicks can be bad?
  8. gotta d00sh that poop out.
  9. i hear ya, but how does manziel add value to anyone's brand? does he have one? don't most people consider him a near future darwin candidate? wouldn't he be poison to anyone's brand?
  10. so you've probably heard that calvin has been coaching in OAK. You probably know that he's still relatively young (32 yo). Marshawn Lynch. since calvin paid back part of his signing bonus, doesn't that void/terminate the contract with DET making him a free agent? Calvin could probably be a top 20 WR, so with him, amari, crabtree, lynch, et al. -- this would be of great concern to me as a Broncos fan.
  11. any projection on Kelley?
  12. 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?
  13. this. if you can't make the playoffs with martin on your bench (and assuming a full, healthy remaining roster), then you're not very good FF owner.
  14. Dennis Pitta - TE - Ravens Dennis Pitta re-injured his hip at Ravens OTAs and is undergoing tests to determine the severity. It was a non-contact injury, after which Pitta could bear no weight on his leg when trying to get off the ground following a reception. "In unfortunate news, Dennis Pitta re-injured his hip at today's OTA session and is undergoing tests," GM Ozzie Newsome announced. "This is incredibly disappointing, obviously for Dennis, and for the Ravens." The ominous statement suggests the Ravens fear a significant injury for Pitta, who played in all 16 games last season and led all NFL tight ends in catches (86). That was after Pitta played in only seven games across 2013-2015 due to multiple fractures and dislocations of both of his hips. Ravens No. 2 tight end Ben Watson is recovering from a torn Achilles', and No. 3 tight end Maxx Williams underwent an offseason knee surgery never before tried on an NFL player. The Ravens are going to have to acquire another pass catcher. Free agents Anquan Boldin and Gary Barnidge should be on their radar. Source: Ravens on Twitter Jun 2 - 2:55 PM Sounds like a big win for Barnidge as I can't imagine those three TEs really doing much this season.
  15. you are the player killer! please post your roster
  16. makes me wonder how much barnidge is asking... Ben Watson - TE - Ravens Ravens TE Ben Watson has agreed to a pay cut. Watson has agreed to slash his salary from $3 million to $1.25 million, of which just $750,000 is fully guaranteed. He can earn back the missing $1.75 million through incentives. It's hardly surprising, as Watson is 36 and recovering from a torn Achilles'. The move greatly enhances his odds of cracking the Ravens' 53-man roster. The team would like Watson's veteran presence in an otherwise young, injury prone and inexperienced tight end group. Source: Profootballtalk on NBCSports.com Jun 13 - 1:09 PM
  17. it's crazy how opinions are so scattered on this guy. from kffl... Patriots | Brandin Cooks lining up everywhere Fri, 09 Jun 2017 08:23:54 -0700 New England Patriots WR Brandin Cooks is lining up everywhere on the field for the team, and he caught a team-high eight passes during a three-day minicamp this week. Cooks finishes every single route, regardless of how quickly the ball is delivered, and he flashes his hands at the end of the route to simulate the timing of the throw, according to S Devin McCourty. Cooks is a weapon, but it's hard to envision him harnessing his WR1 potential with so many other weapons in this offense. Cooks is at-best a WR2 in fantasy. Source: Boston Herald - Jeff Howe ------------------------ from rotoworld... Brandin Cooks - WR - Patriots Brandin Cooks has been lining up all over the field at Patriots' offseason practices. Beat writer Jeff Howe notes Cooks lined up outside and even in the slot, where he was particularly explosive and a total mismatch on crossing patterns. Defensive backs simply couldn't hang with the speed demon. Cooks and Tom Brady also appear well-versed on fly patterns, and Cooks led all Patriots receivers with eight catches in the three practices open to the media. We've seen newcomers struggle to mesh with Brady in the past, but it appears so far, so good for Cooks in New England. He may be their biggest playmaker since Randy Moss. Source: Boston Herald Jun 9 - 10:30 AM ----------------- I think he's an absolutely clear top 10 WR, so for kffl to says wr2 is insane. If he's there in the 3rd, you're nuts for not taking him. I think you're nuts for not taking him in the 2nd, but I don't do redraft anymore so maybe my perspective is way out of date.
  18. maclin or decker?
  19. awesome! i think McCaffrey has the potential to be what Reggie Bush should've been.
  20. it's going to be a different offense with Dennison. So probably 2700 yards and 13 TDs.
  21. I like Clayton and am a big fan of Ike and MJD. They should do a oreo cookie show together.
  22. awesome! Gul Barnidge! Salute! I knew, I'm surrounded by ***holes.
  23. i could see BAL wanting him, mostly due to the OC, but i think he'd have more success with Brees.
  24. Miami has a very good WR group. While it's concerning that he was released, I think it was money and I doubt he goes to a losing team, so I don't see him going to CLE, CHI or SF... unless they pay a lot more
