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?

    • They don't have to key on him as much with Brissett in the mix.  I don't think he'll hit Hilton in this game for the home-run or long-balls.  Different era of arm and mindset now that Luck's gone.
    • it all depends on what Frank decides to run on game day
    • It's also worth mentioning that Carolina has a top ten OL, while TB's OL is bottom 10.  I've never been a fan of Winston, but it's much easier being a QB for Car, and it's certainly nice to have a guy like McCaffrey to take the pressure off a backup.   Also, didn't Winston have like 5 INTs and 2 fumbles. Pretty hard to win with 7 turnovers. Very surprised Carolina didn't beat them by more. I think Winston's QBR was under 10.0 lol.    
    • Now now this is a bit of a strawman. It's one game, in which both QBs were playing so they had a direct impact on each other's numbers. I mean it was hard in some ways for Allen to put up yards when his D kept gifting him great starting position.   To your wider comparison, Allen is a backup covering for a starter and they have a RB lighting it up. I'm not surprised they've kept it quite conservative. Even then, it's never been an O built on gaudy passing numbers.    Winston.. is when you've found out the answer to "is he the guy", but at least you won't die knowing. Has the arm, doesn't have the QB smarts IMO. I'd certainly rather have the latter than former if I had to choose one. But what's wrong with wanting both?    Again... and I will keep repeating this, why is it so wrong to want to see if Brissett is capable of slinging it when needed. Quite prepared to be patient, but also not going to ignore that he has some worrying shortcomings so far and it's not just his reluctance to push it deep. Progressions, locking onto receivers, a few misdiagnoses of defenses (overly critical of me I know). I'd almost be more forgiving if he was trying to make plays and making mistakes, but he's being very conservative and still making some fundamental errors. In a short span of games you'd live with it, but the hope is that he's going to be our guy for years right?
