  1. Fair enough. I appreciate the discussion. I think CMC will get way more than 150 rushes once he's the starter. That's a really low number for a top 8 NFL pick. He averaged 22 rushes per game in college plus receptions and P/K return duties. I understand college < > NFL, but CMC THRIVED as a between-the-tackles runner in college. I think the Panthers drafted him with similar expectations.
  2. Rookie RBs are rarely good at pass pro and CMC was good enough in college and just like all rookies, he will improve in this area. CMC may serve as a backup this season and I'm hyping him as a dynasty prospect more than redraft. That said, I still expect CMC to be fantasy relevant in 2017. It might not happen until week 6 or 8... but I think he's so good they won't be able to keep him off the field. I think the projections of him being a gadget player or slot WR are way off. He is going to be an every down RB in the NFL.
  3. Glennon has the longest neck of all. My GOD!!
  4. The numbers show WR has higher floor and ceiling. I'm confused by your conclusions.
  5. CMC is the best RB in this class. My only concern is Cam's accuracy and utilizing the dump off more. CMC's talent, desire, passion and work ethic are unquestioned. He's got that Peyton Manning workaholic thing going which is typically the difference between greatness and simply being good.
  6. This season - Fournette longer term - CMC
  7. Neil Young quiz - 85% (17/20) Beatles quiz - 75% (15/20) Zeppelin quiz - 70% (14/20)
  8. This is easy...New England is a lock. There's no safer pick. BUF is not going to sweep them.
  9. And.... Flipper Anderson STILL the greatest receiver of all time.
  10. I learned my lesson with him the last 2 years and avoided in every league.
  11. I'm in quite a few leagues with Henry and I can tell you, he basically ignores the noise and goes BPA. His skill, imo, is that he doesn't try to predict injury or outsmart the stats, he simply picks value and BPA. You'll see guys like Edelman and Decker, Forte and Ware. I'll let him reveal anything more if he chooses. He must have 50+ teams. Hell, I have 20 myself. Henry is a good dude for sure.
  12. And I'm the owner he paid for ASJ! I still think ASJ can be a TE1 but it might take a couple more years.
  13. TA is practically undraftable in non bestball leagues, imo. Way too inconsistent to start comfortably.
  14. Everyone has their predictions for Barnidge but to drop him outright is insane unless TE is not a mandatory position and/or your league has very limited bench space and you already have a reliable TE1.
  15. Fustercluck! Is that the term you wanted to use?
  16. Is there a way to confirm my membership for 2016? I have been able to login all summer until today. When I login, it doesn't say anything but keeps loading the login page. I swear I was paid and covered for 2016. Thanks
  17. Woo Hoo!! Hyde TD!!!
  18. Too early to say. The optimist in me (I also have some teams with Charles) would like to think they ride Charles while they can. He will fall off a cliff eventually, why not get everything you can until it's over THEN use Ware. However, if Ware has a few more games like that in a row - which is actually not very likely, imo - Charles might be a glorified back up. But really, it's too soon to tell. I don't feel comfortable making a definitive call on that just yet. Like I said, cautiously optimistic, they're saving Charles for week 5+.
  19. I would like to see Carlos Hyde have a big game. He's the one player I'm most invested in because he was an insane value. There were drafts where I got him in round 6 and maybe later. So yeah, Hyde. Let's get it on!
  20. I saw this and thought to myself, "oh, he looked good tonight, let me check his stats". I wasn't intently watching the game but the few times I recall seeing him get the ball, he looked decent, obviously the had very few targets, so that played a role. I'm guessing he'll be frustrating like last year where he puts up a very few big games with a lot of duds.
  21. None that I can think of either. There's a first for everything. McCown clearly had a thing for Barnidge and with him back starting, I don't see how Barnidge doesn't continue to be his top guy, especially with 2 new WRs (Coleman, Gordon) where chemistry will need to be nurtured.
  22. I drafted Barnidge in a few leagues because he was an incredible value. I didn't have him ranked as high this year due to his uncertain situation with RG3 plus the fact that last year was a career year at age 30. I drafted him on value and upside and I'm much more optimistic now that he has his QB back from last year. Gordon is out 3 more weeks and hasn't played in over a year. Coleman is a rookie who still has a lot to learn. With McCown, I'd immediately bump Barnidge back to top 5 status. I can't see one argument against it. Guys drop passes. I'm not worried about 2 dropped passes from a QB he has no chemistry with and who is now out of the picture for at least 8 weeks. Barnidge now tier 2 TE with Reed, imo.
  23. Stevegrab - did u watch Barnidge play last year? He caught everything in sight and looked like a very good TE to my eyes. Why it took him until age 30 to breakout, I'm not sure. I wouldn't be too worried about his drops. He'll be elite status soon with McCown back under center. Maybe RG3 throws a weird ball?
  24. Barnidge should be fine with McCown back under center. At least that's what I'm hoping for.
  25. While I hate seeing anyone injured, this Barnidge owner is very relieved.
