  1. Really, guy... it was only mildly funny the first time you posted this. Posting it every time steve gets into it with you or anyone else is becoming a little tiresome.
  2. No, I am. But not enough of a leap to warrant calling him a bellcow whereby Goff and the Lion offense can rely on him week in and week out. I think he'll be a 12-15 carry kind of back, at most.
  3. Yeah the line between bounce-back and sleeper can be blurred a bit this early. I edited the topic to reflect that better.
  4. Well yeah of course I penned all of that. I'm not about to jack content. I just went to one of my 12-team leagues with fairly regular PPR scoring and sorted by average ppg and went from there. I guess now folks in my redraft leagues will know who I'll be targeting!
  5. Signature edit?

    @DMD were you able to figure out how we edit sigs? Thanks!
  6. Below is a list of my "sleeper" QBs that in 2020 finished below the top-12, RBs and TEs that fell out of the top-24 and WRs that fell below 36 (so basically assumes a 1 QB, 2 RB, 3 WR, 1 TE PPR starting lineup and going beneath that). Quarterbacks Carson Wentz (finished QB20): I think the move to IND will invigorate him. He's just too good to have fallen this far. The Philly offense and staff didn't do him any favors. The staff in Indy will supply an environment with which he should flourish. At minimum I think he slides into the top-12, making him an every-week starter in all leagues. Jared Goff (QB22): Call me crazy but I think he is going to put up some numbers in Detroit. Kenny Golladay will be 100%, the defense will suck and there won't be a bellcow RB to turn and hand off to 20 times a game. I envision a lot of higher-scoring games where the Lions have to throw to catch up. Lots of garbage time. Could mean some decent fantasy numbers. If nothing else, you'll be able to draft him as your QB2 and he could end up putting up QB1 numbers based on volume alone. Baker Mayfield (QB27): Honestly was shocked to see him ranked so low. He turned out some pretty good games. But there were far too many 14-18 point efforts mixed in. Maybe it's the reliance on the run game, who knows. But I think he'll sneak into the top-15 come 2021. Just too many good weapons to rely on. Running Backs J.K. Dobbins (RB34): Mark Ingram is gone and I can see the Ravens relying on Dobbins for the majority of the carries and catches out of the backfield. Lamar Jackson will still steal rushes, especially in the red zone and at the goal line, but Dobbins will likely jump up 10-12 spots. James White (RB51): Cam Newton and his QB rushes are gone, and whoever will take snaps for the Pats will likely be dumping off to White more, like Brady used to. White averaged under 9ppg in PPR, which is a far cry from what he's been doing in recent years. I predict a bounce-back in PPR leagues. Cam Akers (RB55): Bringing in Matthew Stafford will open up running lanes for Akers, who started to really get cookin' in the latter third of the season and in the playoffs. Hopefully HC McVay won't continue to use the "hot hand" approach since Malcolm Brown and Darrell Henderson are fairly capable backs themselves. Wide Receivers Michael Thomas (WR43): Pretty much a no-brainer here, even if Brees is gone. Not sure he'll even be classified as a "sleeper", more like "bounce-back". DeVante Parker (WR46): Just too talented to not be knocking on the door of the top-25 or so. While I don't think Tua is going to be a volume passer, I can see Miami's offense continuing to improve and Parker is by far the best receiver on the team. Courtland Sutton (WR50): Pretty much in the Thomas camp. TY Hilton (WR52): Everyone thought that Rivers plus Hilton's deep ball skills would equal fantasy greatness but it never happened. I don't think Hilton was ever fully healthy last year. 100% health plus Wentz could mean a nice season. Christian Kirk (WR55): Kirk had some monster games in the middle part of the season and then fizzled. I think Larry Fitzgerald could be done and Hopkins on the other side will mean plenty of open space for Kirk. Julian Edelman (WR63): Hurt most of the year and never jived with Cam. New QB, underneath routes, recipe for a nice PPR bounceback. Tight Ends O.J. Howard (TE18): If Gronk hangs 'em up (not sure if he will or not), then Howard has top-10 potential with Brady. Irv Smith, Jr. (TE25): Kyle Rudolph is probably done or will be phased out and development of Justin Jefferson will give Smith the middle of the field to work with. Jack Doyle (TE44): Just a hunch but I have a feeling he is going to jive with Wentz. He's a guy I want on my roster as my 2nd TE, because I think he could easily put up TE1 numbers.
  7. J.J. Watt’s landing spots

    Ugh. I traded for Kirksey at the end of the season hoping he'd come back and post another 100+ tackles for the Pack. Maybe they are going to plug Barnes in that spot?
  8. J.J. Watt’s landing spots

    Didn't realize Vernon was a FA. They could let him walk, but I'd bet they push to retain Ogunjobi. He is quite underrated. More I read and hear, the more I can see him going to your Brownies. If it weren't for his Wisconsin and Pittsburgh ties I'd bet he'd already be signed there.
  9. Wentz to Colts for 3rd and...

    Sure.
  10. J.J. Watt’s landing spots

    Man, if he goes to Cleveland, their line will be deadly. Garrett on one end, Watt on the other? With Vernon rotating in? Ogunjobi wrecking the middle? Scary. I bet that is on Watt's mind right now. That defense could really put the pressure on the likes of Mahomie when it counts.
  11. Wentz to Colts for 3rd and...

    Typical reply. Why do you hate black quarterbacks?
  12. Wentz to Colts for 3rd and...

    Man you're dense. Read my post again. The CONTEXT of which I was speaking was clearly about fantasy football, since this is, in fact, a fantasy football forum.
  13. Wentz to Colts for 3rd and...

    Wait, you have to win games to be a fantasy stud? News to me, champ.
  14. Wentz to Colts for 3rd and...

    Oh and the domino effect is Hurts just zoomed up in the rankings, despite what League_"Champion" will say.
  15. Wentz to Colts for 3rd and...

    That's true. I'm glad I held on to him and didn't trade him for peanuts in one of my dynasty leagues. I also have Darnold in that league and now have to hope he goes somewhere where he can have a Tannehill-like resurrection.
