  1. How to value Chubb

    I think this is more or less where I am. The reason I ask is I'll be drafting in the second half of my drafts and I'd really like Chubb. I'll try to pick up Hunt but I am not going to overpay either. Coming back that late in the year is never a guarantee of much and by then I expect Chubb will be having a good year
  2. How to value Chubb

    You don't see many in season trades but also I am not sure if Cleveland would consider Hunt as a bargaining chip. They haven't seemed to eager to get rid of Duke Johnson which makes me think they likely won't. I am not an expert on in season trades though. These things are hard or impossible to predict which is why when in doubt I prefer to draft the best athlete rather than the setup. The problem is both are pretty damn good. We are talking two perhaps top 5 RB's or close.
  3. How to value Chubb

    I like Chubb a lot. He did really well with not a great OL in Cleveland and the credible threat of throwing and potentially being ahead in games with a solid D for Cleveland would lead one to believe he'll be grinding out a lot of games. But he also has a pretty nice talent in Hunt coming back in week 10. I think without Hunt he's an easy 1st round selection in a 12 team league but not sure how to value him with Hunt. I'd say drafting Hunt as a cuff is likely advised if you do. If one goes down the other becomes very valuable. How high would you draft? Early 2nd?
  4. Brandon Bolden

    I don't really love any NE back. James White, Michel, Burkhead, the new guy they drafted. Maybe White for PPR but I don't play PPR
  5. Coach's analysis of Darnold

    I keep forgetting about Bell. That is a significant safety valve if Bell is a player he used to be. That's a big if
  6. Coach's analysis of Darnold

    I think Darnold will be good eventually. I like him a lot more than Trubisky or Allen, neither of which is as accurate. Who does he have to throw to though right now?
  7. Kyle Rudolph

    I have him at 9th in fantasy scoring last year, even though he played all 16 games. OJ Howard, Gronk, Evan Engram and others were not far behind and they missed multiple weeks. And on a team that threw 63% of the time. And now he has Irv Smith Jr who may take some snaps. The O line may be better this year but he's not a super attractive fantasy candidate to me.
  8. Todd Gurley - 2019 draft ranking

    Yeah I can't agree with that ranking. There is no chance I would take him before Nick Chubb. I read that Gurley said it's a minor issue and I think he's wrong. But I guess we'll just have to see
  9. Kyle Rudolph

    Yeah I would have preferred to just see him cut to be honest. Even for 9 million. But it's not a huge investment. I'd feel differently if he blocked well but he doesn't. I agree with League I think he's pretty easily replaced for what he produces
  10. Kyle Rudolph

    He's kind of slow as molasses. I am not a huge fan to be honest. But it depends on the contract structure. If it is 9 million guaranteed I don't have a problem. If it is 16 million it is too much. I was hoping they'd just cut or trade him but maybe they want to run 2 TE sets with Irv Smith Jr. I don't know. Given our junky Oline they may want easy passes for Kirk. A little puzzling if they guaranteed him much money but I am still waiting on full contract details.
  11. Leveon Bell Trade?

  12. 18 Game Regular Season Considered

    I could handle that too. One extra game is fine. Two gets a little tough because of wear and tear. Cut at least one preseason game. There is just not good enough reason to play 4 of them if you ask me.
  13. Todd Gurley - 2019 draft ranking

    4th or 5th round sounds about right. For all we know the guy can't even really play this year. Or any year.
  14. ASJ to be released

    Released? Seems a little extreme. What would cause a player to get straight up released right now? Out of shape? Or booze or something like Redd said?
  15. Breakouts and busts

    He's on a good offense across from Keenan Allen and now that Tyrell Williams is gone should get a lot of his targets. I don't think Travis Benjamin is a huge threat to his workload. Only thing I didn't love was he was very TD heavy last year which isn't usually that consistent year to year. He doesn't seem to get many YAC. But he is a big body so maybe he'll remain a big red zone target. I owned him for part of the year and it was surprising how little he got used. With more targets he could be very productive. Also am not sure how much to expect from Hunter Henry. I think I'll pass on him, but sounds like he could be good.
