Buy, Beware, and Sleeper

Recommended Posts

This is a list of players that you should buy into and beware along with some sleeper picks as well.

 

Buy

 

QB- Baker Mayfield

 

This isn't about the hype surrounding the browns. Baker has the potential imo to be a top 10 talent and that was before adding Hunt and Beckham.

 

RB- David Johnson

 

David johnson can be RB1 in fantasy. Murray is gonna take a lot of attention away from Johnson and Kingsbury's offense imo will use Johnson in a lot of different ways

 

WR- Juju Smith-Schuster

 

No more AB means a lot more targets for Juju. Yes that also means he gets WR1 attention from defenses, but I see this as something similar to when Hilton took over as the man after Reggie retired.

 

TE- T.J Hockenson

 

Perhaps more of a sleeper pick, but I can see Hockenson being a monster in this league. He has a similar game to Kettle and I can see similar production.

 

D/ST-Jaguars

 

This is more schedule based. The jags play a fourth place schedule and the talent on that defense is still similar to two years ago minus Telvin Smith. I also think Josh Allen can be a monster.

 

Beware

 

QB-Jared Goff

 

This is more about Todd Gurley and rather the Rams are dailing back his workload. If that is the case, I don't think that will benefit Goff as the rams putting the team on Goff does not equal the same success as the offense going through Gurley.

 

RB- Any Bucs RB

 

The bucs are not a running team and with Arians being the head coach, that will not change. Jones looked like a bust out of the gates and Barber is average.

 

WR- Amari Cooper

 

Cooper is currently being drafted as a WR2 which imo is too bust then boom for me. Cowboys are a running team that throw more check downs then attacking defenses vertically which Cooper is better at. I would feel better if he was a WR3.

 

TE- Eric Ebron

 

Hold on let me explain. Ebron was great, but keep in mind Doyle will be back and there are a lot more mouths to feed. Ebron will also most likely lose red zone targets to Funchess as well. I also see us running the football more in the red zone.

 

D/ST- Colts

 

Again let me explain, this has more to do with the QBs we're facing then my belief in our defense. Rivers, Ryan, Mahomes, Watson twice, Big Ben, Brees. That is not an easy schedule for our defense.

 

Sleeper

 

QB- Kyler Murray

 

Kyler is the perfect fantasy QB. He is a QB in a RB body with Olympic speed and in Kliff's offense, I can see a lot of yards and a lot of chances to score.

 

RB- David Montgomery

 

Montgomery imo will be the bell cow for the Bears. Cohen will steal carries and catches out of the backfield, however Montgomery will get the majority of the work and the goaline carries.

 

WR- Christian Kirk

 

Perhaps Im really high on the cards, but I can see Kirk playing a bigger role then Fitz in this offense with his speed. Also young QBs tend to target slot WRs more.

 

TE- Noah Fant

 

Fant can see a lot of targets early with Sanders recovering from his tore achilles and Sutton still being a bit raw. Also Flacco likes targeting TEs from Dennis Pitta to Ben Watson.

 

D/ST- Broncos

 

Broncos new head coach was the bears Def coordinator and I can see him transforming that defense especially with Miller and Chubb coming off the edge.

Pretty good list. Just to throw out another name, I would put Mitchell Trubisky on the beware list out of the teams that are supposed to be good. I still am not buying him as a guy that can lead the Bears deep into the playoffs.

I can see Trubisky taking a step back, but Goff tops my list.

I think that Goff will be just fine for this upcoming season. Gurley isn't going to be the full work horse but I honestly think Goff will take a step forward and lead the Rams to a good season regardless of Gurley's production.

Great job. Thanks. 

 

I completely agree about Juju. I like James Conner too for the same reason you mentioned. 

 

Are you still high on Kyler Murray and the Cards after their first 2 pre-season games?

    • There is a good chance that Reich agrees with this. Ballard? I’m not sure if he’s doing due diligence watching Love or if he has him pegged as the next Mahomes.
    • The OL hasn’t been perfect but no OL is when they’re protecting a statue
    • There are at least 3 people who are probably saying. I told you we should have traded up and taken Will Hernandez.  
    • Disclaimer: I still don't know if Brissett is the future at QB.  But the more film I watch, the more Jordan Love looks like DeShone Kizer rather than Patrick Mahomes.  With where the Colts will be picking, there are no "sure thing" QBs.   Regardless of what the Colts do this off-season, Brissett is likely to be the starting QB next year.  It will be intriguing to see if the Colts can surround him with better skill talent and whether a full off-season to prepare like a starter helps him improve.    https://www.si.com/nfl/2019/12/08/nfl-week-14-preview-analysis   Excerpt:   Before the receiving corps deteriorated due to injury, the Colts were sitting at 5-2 and Brissett was on pace for 3,600 yards, 32 TD passes and a 99.3 passer rating. Now left with Zach Pascal and the Funky Bunch, Brissett would surely kill for the kind of talent Tom Brady has with the slumping Patriots at the moment.   Then there was the injury to Brissett himself, which has shaded this season. Had he not sprained his MCL in Pittsburgh and finished the de-pantsing of the Steelers rather than turning it over to Brian Hoyer to, well, turn it over for the remainder of that game as well as the next one (an upset loss to Miami), Indy would be sitting at 8-4 right now. If their kicking game hadn’t devolved at a stunning rate (if you project points-per-kick based on league-average rates from inside-50-yard attempts, 50-plus attempts and PATs, Adam Vinatieri is a league-worst -11.9 on the year while opposing kickers against the Colts are +7.4, fourth-best in the league), you could probably push that record to at least 9-3 (there were particularly egregious, arguably game-costing misses in losses to the Chargers in Week 1, and last week to Tennessee).   At this point in his career, Brissett is a high-end game manager. He has the potential to develop into much more. Since the last time we saw him, he's become a faster processor. The arm talent, underrated touch and functional mobility aren't going anywhere.   TRIVIA TIME   PLAYER A: 6.58 yards/attempt, 19 TD, 7 INT, while throwing to Pro Bowl slot receiver with three 1,000-yard seasons, veteran WR acquired for second-round pick, 2015 first-round pick, 2019 first-round pick who’s missed nine games, 28-year-old former All-Pro WR released after six games, veteran TE who’s missed six games   PLAYER B: 6.91 yards/attempt, 18 TD, 6 INT, while throwing to Pro Bowl WR who has missed six games, 2019 second-round WR who has missed six games, No. 1 TE who has missed two games, formerly undrafted TE whose never had a 700-yard season, three undrafted WRs (in second, third and fourth NFL seasons)   Can you match the player with his 2019 stats?   (Hint: Both of them have appeared in this post, and both aren't having great seasons)
