 I would go with Moncrief. Analysts have predicted that he will be a break-out player this year.

 

Tough choice between Moncrief and Lockett

 

I think either would be a viable option, pick a name out of a hat.

If you want the highest floor, I would say Matthews. If you want the highest ceiling, Moncrief or Lockett. I would personally say Matthews is the top option here because he is the best receiver on the Eagles and a rookie QB tends to target his top receiver more often as a type of security blanket. He should see double-digit targets this week as Wentz settles into the NFL

Yea, I'm not buying into Matthews until he does something good. He was abysmal last season.

I don't think I would call 85 catches for almost 1000 yards and 8 tds abysmal

Moncrief, mainly because the Colts could be playing from behind more than the Seahawks (Lockett) or Eagles (Mathews) though TDs can never be predicted. Kevin White, not sold on him till I see a few games of good looks.

In the first 10 games he played last year (11 weeks including the bye)

 

He registered 2 TD, and averaged 56.5 YPG

 

That my friend is abysmal for a #1 WR.

obviously he did amazingly well in the last 5 weeks, but he had already burned his fantasy owners by being Abysmal for the first 11 weeks of the season. I know I dropped him last year after a hand full of games. Too risky to assume that he will be productive at all with a new coaching staff, new scheme, and new QB. I'd stay far far away until he proves he can be consistent.

Currently up 21 and he has Jordan Reed, and up 20 with DeAngelo and he has Gurley and Tavon Austin.

 

Killing myself for benching Snead AND Riddick over John Brown in one league, and Riddick over John Brown in another league.

 

Just lost Ertz and I don't trust Zach Miller. May pick up Doyle if available.

I won't, but if Zach Miller is at 4.4 points with Cutler throwing it, I can't be doing much worse.

Absolutely. In 8 games with McCown, Barnidge is THE TE1. 1 more point per game average than Gronk.

That was always the problem with RG3, he would not make his reads fast enough once his first or second reads were taken and it limited his development as a QB. Shanahan let him run the college offense in year 1, and till teams got used to it, he was successful. Once that big Ngata hit took place, Shanahan tried to fit a square peg in a round hole when he tried to teach RG3 pocket awareness and read progression more to extend his QB longevity. However, RG3 would not have it.

Hung on to win in spite of 1.8 pts from John Brown and 27 from Riddick on my bench. Would have had most points in the league if played Riddick. Won by 6, now up 50 in other league against a struggling Gurley and Austin. Made the same brown for riddick play there too and also have Snead on the bench, most points for the week.

 

And then I remembered we called timeout and blew the Lions game...

Huge reward. Got me my win especially with gurley's bad game. 

 

I need help this week. Choose two

 

Spencer ware vs Texans

Eddie Lacy vs vikings

Kelvin Benjamin vs 49ers

Eric decker vs bills

Rawls vs rams

Fuller vs chiefs

 

I like rawls especially after what the 49ers did and I'm tempted to go with fuller. Chargers ripped that secondary and Peters will be on hopkins

After the Rams defense being torched last night, Rawls would be  good choice. Isn't there some concern about his health, though? Not sure if I heard correctly.

 

If Charles doesn't play, then I like Ware. He might not do as well against the Texans, but I think that he'll still have a productive season if he's going to be the main runner.

Is Charles back that has huge implications to your lineup.

 

The only lock there I think is Benjamin, who after blowing up Denver's secondary I consider pretty much match up proof.

 

 

If Rawls practices in full, that could be a good play. Fuller might be a good play, but I tend to think that game will be lower scoring. I like Lacy, but only because he's on my team haha.

If PPR I def go Fuller or Benjamin or Lacy. I think you can remove Rawls who is still not 100% and splitting with Chrstine Michael as well as Spencer Ware who will be splitting with Jamaal Charles. Decker is a question mark, Bills own the Jets the last four meetings and on a short week.

I would put Landry in instead of Wallace. With the Dolphins playing the Patriots, even without Brady, they should be playing from behind. Jarvis is the offenses target hog and he should see double-digit targets. In PPR, that creates a ton of points. Other than that it looks good. I would contemplate D Murray or L Murray, but Danny Woodhead is going to get a lot of targets now with Keenan Allen out. He is quite possibly their #1 receiving option now. I like that for PPR. I need Sanu to prove it another week before I jump on board with him, and the same goes with Sharpe.

Rex Ryan and Rob Ryan are going to get embarrassed, IMO. Did you see the Jets' D against the Bengals' OL, which is pretty stout? I think the Jets are going to come back with a win giving Rex a loss against his old team.

Narcosys, you responded most of the time I was on here asking line up questions last year, so I owe you some responses myself :) 

 

I know you are thinking about the Woodhead reaping benefits of Allen's departure angle and other Raider RBs stealing TDs like Jalen Richard did vs the Saints, it may not be a frequent thing. If it becomes frequent, you can second guess Latavius Murray but you give him the benefit in a traditional league match up vs the Falcons. Jags have good LBs, unlike the Colts, IMO. Against the Colts however, due to lack of speed and tackling prowess at the LB position and how they have struggled vs Sproles and recently Riddick, in game 3 for Chargers vs Colts, you are playing Woodhead. Everything else seems fine with me. However, in PPR, Woodhead may compensate for lack of TDs with catches and Rivers loves throwing to his RBs. Just saw that it was PPR, it changes things :)

 

For Flex, Wallace vs Landry is a quandary (rhyme intended :)). I have not paid close attention to how the Ravens are using Wallace. We all look at him as a go route guy but do they use him on enough crossing routes like Pitt. did when he was successful because CBs had to play off due to his speed? Landry, we are 100% certain he is used in the slot and goes across more like Larry Fitzgerald with the Cardinals who went off vs the Patriots. However, Landry is more like a go to guy unlike Arizona that had Brown, Floyd and Fitzgerald, so the Pats can scheme him out, I feel. You might need one more game to find out about both but I'd say stick with your gut on this though Landry seems more appealing in PPR, IMO.

It's still the Jets. The team that beat the Pats on the road to take control of their playoff destiny last year and still lost to the Bills in week 17. Also lost earlier on in the season on a Thursday night in an embarrassing close fashion. Rex shows up for big games like against the Pats when he was a Jet and now against the Jets as a Bill. Just think there is a better play.

Wallace had a better game last week than any other WR besides AJ green.   The Ravens plan on using him a lot.  And a matchup against the Browns is enticing. But if the Ravens are ahead, wallace won't get the targets.

I need to get back on here more.  A bunch of stuff has kept me away; college, sickness, staining 30 cabinets.

 

I hate staining. I'll try to get on here more often.

    • it's kind of a win win though if we do have a bad season I won't be too upset and if we have a great season then that's awesome. unless we keep our coach and get like a late 20s pick cuz I mean we'd still get value but not as much maybe as a top 10 pick obviously. it's not as simple as just want a good season not this year. even though I always want the Colts to kick butt
    •   Denver won a superbowl with Brock Osweiler (plus a living corpse Manning). Osweiler (and Siemian both) looked a lot better under Kubiak's hand than any QB under O'Brians hand since he left Boston. Not to mention, O'Brian replaced Fitzpatrick with Hoyer, who was worse than his predecessor, then replaced Hoyer with Osweiler who also was worse than his predecessor. Imo, O'Brian couldn't install a system for his lesser talented QB's, which would've helped them use their strengths.   On the other hand, Pagano is a secondary coach. Let's see what he has done there? The Colts (Grigson) didn't draft a single player in the secondary in the first 3 years. Of the free agent additions: Davis become a first team all pro. Mike Adams made the pro bowl multiple times and played his best football over age 30 in Indy. Dwight Lowery had a decent year here, one of his best. Greg Toler wasn't good, but he played his best football in Indy. The Laron Landry project failed, but it failed more due to not being able to stay healthy, than production. (I didn't particularly like him though, but I can't say he was terrible when healthy.) Darius Butler become a decent player, having his best years of his carreer in Indy. Then, when the Colts finally decided to draft in the secondary: D'Joun Smith turned out to be a bust. Health issues again. Geathers became a fine player - sadly, health issues there again.  For T.J. Green, Hooker and Wilson the jury is still out. And they found Rashan Melvin off the streets. This is not bad at all. Most players, who stayed healthy, played their best in Indy. Of course talent matters. You can't make pro-bowlers out of journeymen.     Pagano's record is 15-7 at home and 13-14 on the road against coaches ahead of him. That's not a bad record considering that coaches ahead of him usually have better rosters under their control. (The numbers might be off by one or two here or there, due to coaching changes, etc. I might counted - or not counted - a game played against a previous coach. I also counted games against Harbaugh and Kubiak supposing they'd be in top10 being active. Anyway the true record must be close to the above.).   All in all, I think Pagano is right there where he belongs to after 3 winning plus 2 down seasons. Middle of the pack. But ..... I think, based on "potential", he is better than his current value. He is a top10 coach on my list.   I know many of you guys strongly disagree, but that's my honest opinion. There are better coaches in the NFL than him. But not many. So I really wish Pagano will prove himself in 2017. Aaand, if he fails and will be fired, then I cross my fingers that there will be at least one guy available of those "not many". (Yes, despite my belief that he is a fine coach, I agree that he has to go if he fails to prove himself. Because that's the right decision. But honestly, I'll be scared if that happens. It won't be easy to find a better guy. And there is always a chance to be ChipKelly-d....)  
    • Banner was up to 260Lbs He was at 253lbs for the combine with a goal of 245lbs. I thought that's what I read.  Walker adding 7 so he's back up over 240.    Wilson at 207lbs jumps out to me. We heard about "football shape" for him. He was 211lbs at the combine. You'd think him being in better shape would make him a blink quicker. If he's a little faster we may not get him. I'm excited to see this kid with Hooker on the back end. If we can get Geathers back we could have something.   
    •   And, wittness such a weird offseason. Giving up a fortune for Mahomes, letting Poe (+Howard) go then sign Bennie Logan for similar cash? Let Charles, Knile Davis go then sign C.J. Spiller? And finally, let Maclin go and not even try to do something with the WR depth. (There was Decker available for example....)   These remind me a bit of what happened in Philly when Chip Kelly took full control. He let McCoy go then signed Murray and Matthews to huge contracts, etc. Weird moves.   Reid is not Kelly, the old man is proven and good. But still.... something doesn't feel right for me there.
    • Even though this is Camp weight [nothing to get riled over] there are a few players that intrigued me weight wise. Hooker, Woods(23lbs is alot of weight), just to name a few
