    lived in CA most of my life until I moved to CO in 2000. I've been there through the good and bad times with Raiders (Oak, to LA, back to Oak, and now to Las Vegas). Loyal fan. I've seen to many fair weather fans in many cities, which questions how true a fan they are. Hypocrites.

    Yeah, we'll see about that. SB hangover is real. Can Wentz wear the same magical slippers as Foles' during his magical ride to glory? The East looks like it's back to being a real meat grinder. All Divisional games will be huge.

    This post made me realize I have zero interest in any of these guys...and that's probably a mistake for FFL. Someone will catch the ball, even if it's not pretty. I have no faith in Allen Hurns so I voted Beasley, more as a total no-confidence vote in Tavon TBH. In a real draft I'd probably pick Gallup for his relatively better ADP value. I'd be interested in what the Dallas homers think.

    Gotta go with Zeke. His O-line is better and he is in an established offense. If it was a full point PPR, I might lean towards DJ, but not in half point PPR. I think Gurley regresses a bit this season and Zeke is the #1 or #2 RB with Bell

    Yeah that Manning signing sure sucked too! Architecting a SB win tends to give a GM a pretty good cushion. I think he's been a mixed bag as GM. Re. Darnold, he does look promising, but it's way (way) early; I wouldn't get too worked up just yet, and esp when they're so lacking in other positions.

    Do you have to keep a QB? I can't think of many league setups other than perhaps a 2QB league where I would want to commit 10% of my budget to the QB position, yet alone a single QB. If it has to be a QB, then Watson by a fairly decent margin. If it's for the league in your signature, which it appears to be, I'm probably keeping Adams for 10 over any of the QBs.

    Jets fans getting very excited! Watch Brian Baldinger's assessment of Darnold (along with some rare praise from Josh Norman):

    Here's a deep sleeper for you all... Mack Hollins. A few reasons... First, Alshon and Agholor are both banged up. If Alshon sits the first couple of games, Hollins could earn his way into a prominent role. Alshon is no stranger to injury, and his timeline coming off of torn rotator cuff surgery was always a little tight anyway. Hollins is a big dude too - bigger than Alshon (6'4"). He does have to contend with current #3 WR Mike Wallace, but Wallace is 32 and a known commodity. Hollins has more upside as an unknown.

    McCaffrey averaged 2.3 ypc in the first 8 games and he averaged 4.6 ypc in the last 8 games of the season. It is skewed a bit because had a nice stretch from weeks 10-12 where he averaged 4.4ypc, 4.6ypc, and 8.8 ypc. If you include that 3 game stretch with the first 8 games, he averaged 3.5 ypc over the first 11 games and he averaged 4.0 ypc over the last 6 games of the season including the playoff game. In 3 of those last 6 games, he ran for 6-16, 6-16, and 6-19. So he didn't really end the season as good as the 4.6 ypc stat would indicate. McCaffrey weighed 202 at the combine. There are zero workhorse running backs currently in the NFL that weighed that little at the combine. And when I watch him, he looks smaller than 202 pounds. I don't believe the reports of him gaining weight. He is muscular and has a big upper body. He isn't thick in the ass and thighs. The lower body is more important than the upper body for the success and durability of a running back running the ball. McCaffrey played 70% of snaps last year and only got 117 carries. They did not want him running the ball. They did not have him running the ball much at the end of the year in games that mattered even though Jonathan Stewart was horrible. What has changed from last year to this year other than Jonathan Stewart being replaced by a better running back? CJ Anderson is a good running back. He is a bowling ball. He is the opposite of McCaffrey in every aspect. Their skill sets complement each other well. They are thunder and lightning. CJ will play at least 40% of snaps. CJ will get most of the between-the-tackles carries. CJ will get more total carries than McCaffrey. They will probably end up close in total touches.

    Long term Zeke. Bradford might only make it thru 6 games, then a rookie comes in and the D will change. Cards are still thin at O-Line and seem to have injuries ever year on the line.

    Honestly no, I wish he would call it a career. He's not filling a role on any team at this point unlike Emmitt or the Bus back in the day.

    Not sure you're going to see this happen, even in a 10-man standard I don't think he'll last past the 3rd.

    I think McCaffrey is going to have 125-175 carries. He is small. He was not a good rusher last year. Why have a superstar player do something he isn't very good at and that puts him at great risk of injury? He is great at receiving the ball and that is how he should be featured. It would make no sense to give him many more carries unless he becomes better at running the ball. And most running backs don't improve much at running the ball. When a team has a small and talented running back, coaches always say they are going to use them more. It is usually coachspeak. No coach is going to be honest and say that the player is too small to handle a big workload. The small player certainly doesn't want his coach publicly saying he is too small to handle a big workload. So coaches say the opposite. Coaches are especially going to lie when the diminutive player is a star and a fan favorite. Tarik Cohen will also not get a lot of carries this year. Chris Thompson will again have his carries limited despite his 5.2 ypc career rushing average and the Redskins' need at running back. And Darren Sproles will once again not get a lot of carries. Sproles has never had 100 carries in a season despite having a 4.9 ypc career rushing average. Size matters. I like McCaffrey at his mid-second round adp. I especially like him when he is available in the low second round which is fairly often. I've grabbed him twice in the second round after drafting Antonio Brown in the 1st round. McCaffrey was the 9th highest scoring running back last year despite only having 117 carries. He is for sure going to be used heavily in their passing game again. Injury is the only way he busts. He is available at the point in the draft where there are no more legit tier 1 players available. His ceiling might be lower than tier 1 but he is a very safe bet to end the season in the top 10 running backs.

    Priest Holmes comes to mind. I will be taking a chance on him, but not early for sure. Round 5 sounds about right.

    While I understand DJ's injury was not lower body (which is good); Zeke's youth, line, and consistent offense role/scheme wins out for me.

    I try to keep up with Bronco news, but been working overseas for many years now (Afghanistan). 14-and 16 team leagues, yes, then TB RBs are worth roster spot. I like Barber until he shows that he cannot be cow bell. The rest of preseason for TB will be telling who will secure RB1 on TB. Hopefully Barber can continue to pull away from the pack.

    The Cowboys' wide receiving crew is the most unpredictable in the NFL. Who do you think will do best fantasywise?

    Someone has to explain the appeal of McKinnon at his current ADP. He's never handled a full load, he's not the biggest back, and even at the end of last year it was Latavius getting work near the goal line. Why won't that happen this year with SF? Honestly it's the size of his contract I think that has people so interested. I get that people want him to be the next Devontae Freeman but his record suggests nowhere near that level of talent. What am I missing? ETA: sorry to be so negative - I'm very glad he's ok. just feel like his current ADP is a trap.

    I won the very first Smackbowl in 1999. It was the year of the 15-1 Vikings, but I had a roster filled with Falcons players and the NFC championship cleared the decks for me.

    I'm surprised at how little love Case is receiving. He was very good last year. He did start slowly but that was to be expected since he hadn't practiced with the 1st stringers in the preseason. Once he got going, he really got going. He had better than a 100 quarterback rating in 6 of the last 8 games of the season. He only had 23 total touchdowns on the season but had 16 touchdowns in the last 8 games and was the 5th highest scoring fantasy quarterback over that span. His second half of the season was so strong that he ended up with second highest qbr on the season trailing only Carson Wentz. It is too bad that Denver's defense is good. A bad defense is a fantasy quarterback's best friend. Denver has the receivers to put up big numbers if they are trailing. But it looks like their defense isn't likely to let that happen. The Vikings defense didn't let Case put up much garbage time stats either. The Vikings trailed by more than 7 points only 2 times last year. So it's not surprising that Case had 10 second quarter touchdowns but only 9 second half touchdowns. The Vikings were almost always ahead in the second half and played conservatively. Every year the quarterback position gets deeper. There are 20 fantasy quarterbacks who are roster worthy this year. I am totally comfortable starting 15 of those quarterbacks. I see no reason to draft a quarterback before the 10th round. In the 10th round, quarterbacks like Ben Roethlisberger, Marcus Mariota, Jimmy Garoppolo, Philip Rivers, Andrew Luck, and Matt Stafford can be available. It isn't possible to know which ones will be available in round 10 but a couple of them will be available. Case Keenum is available even later. If I wait until rounds 10-12 to draft my first quarterback and there is a run on backup quarterbacks before I can grab a quarterback, Case Keenum is a nice fallback option. His adp ranges from round 15 to round 20. He is also a low-cost second quarterback to draft. It is nice having 2 legit quarterbacks to be able to play matchups. And it is easy to justify using the roster space since so little draft capital was used if your first quarterback is drafted in the 10th round.

    Hue Jackson is an ass-hat and has no business being responsible for the career of Mayfield. Mayfield is a billion percent better that Taylor and everyone knows it. Hue is trying to power trip everyone when he has absolutely no credibility to stand on. The Browns need to fire him asap. HE is the guy who will hold them back. They have talent.

    Thanks, can't help but wonder if Mayfield also maybe tuning Jackson out a little cause honestly that man will not see another season there. Probably shouldn't of even seen this one.

    That seemingly means you are passing the following: Hunt, Gordon, Barkley, Kamara, OBJ, Julio, AB. If you reeealy want a RB, and you think Cook will be better than Hunt, Barkley, kamara, go for it. I would be looking at one of those listed above.
  35. 1 point
    Offer both up for trade, take the biggest haul you can for one of them and keep the other one. Truly a coin flip - I think if I had to choose I'd take Kamara as he is younger and not coming off of an injury, but really very close to call

    Penny will start the season as the back-up to Carson...bank it. Problem is no matter who starts that o-line is a sieve and no one is going to last too long trying to run thru it. Another year of revolving backs...

    You guys have been very kind to Elway. He royally f-d up in trading up into round 1 for Paxton Lynch. Nobody crucifying him for that whereas Jets GM was skewered for drafting hackenberg late in round 2. Elway must have a teflon shield around him. You guys should be furious. He was a way better QB than GM.

    I cant exactly recall but I think I've been around here since 1998. So much has happened since then. On another note the FF league I helped found and have been in since 1995 just disbanded. Its the only league I have ever played in. Its really sad.
