Josh is being Josh… 

 

What a weekend. A not so good weekend for nearly all the QBs across the league except Tua really. 
 

Jalen Hurts did nothing for me in fantasy. 

I thought AR played well despite the loss. He just looked like a QB that has been there before. Purdy out in SF still hasn't lost a game.

AR netted me over 20 points… on the bench… meanwhile Hurts barely got me 14… and like an * I had Hall on the bench because the coach earlier said they’d be easing Breece back into the game… how was I to know Rodgers would go down and make Breece the only chance?

He seems to play with the maturity of a veteran in his role in that team... A rare specimen. 

 

I remember telling Viking22 that the Vikes should draft him. Viking22 was a fan of his college team (Iowa or Iowa St). He did not think Purdy was an NFL QB. He did not think he would be drafted. Purdy almost was not.

Jets did Eaze him in the game... But he just Breezed past for 100+ yards in 3 touches.

 

Good that you at least have him for rest of the year.. I thought he would take time to heal and didn't draft him

Play Breece next week. You got a great find in FF.

My 15 year old nephew came over today and was excited he had AR in fantasy. He is a cowboys fan and he goes how do they score 40 and dak got me nothing.

Same with Dak last year too... I just missed all the QBs and had to draft Dak..

 

Even AR was taken very early in my league draft.. and they're Right .

Funny how it all works out.. SF is long due for SB win in this Century, they have great GM, HC, team, offense and defense.. and finally the kind of reliable QB they needed ..

@RollerColt You were at the game in which Damar Hamlin was hurt, right?

Yep. An experience I’ll never forget. It really pushed me into a different viewpoint on football. I was already heading this way, but football is no longer dominating my life like it has in years past. There’s so much more to life.

@VikingsFanInChennai  I read that D. Hunter had a very good game yesterday. He and JJ had great games. Mattison was ok.

JJ comes of the hibernation like a bullet.. how does he do it consistently... Good to see he's totally on track for a phenomenal career if he stays healthy throughout.

 

Hunter is all alone now

 

Mattison, I thought, was doing okay but they rarely ran him, and couldn't figure out why they even split carries for Ty Chandler...

 

Vikings HC was clearly over in his head, lack of game preparation for the opponent and in-game adjustment showed out.

 

As the Vikings were fighting behind, I suddenly remember that feeling of last year when Vikings were bad in stretches like that last year too, only difference was they came out winning by 1 score 10 times ..

 

It doesn't happen like that again, they are the same average team, and they better prepare for next games ..

 

This week will be a massacre in Philadelphia.

Why does Allen keep throwing at Jordan whitehead. Bills need a better run game and more weapons besides Diggs.

I am still surprised they didn't make a hard push for Taylor. They are in win now mode with that roster. What hurt them last year was not a run game in the playoffs. In cold weather you have to be able to run.

    • Too young. Nowadays, 71 is like being 51. Way too young.
    • I think he just needs to stay healthy. If he can do that and not regress fans will love him. 
    • He's a top 10 RT in the league when healthy, so why would you want him to move back to guard?
    • Untouchables have to be Haliburton, Turner, Siakam, Nembhard, and McConnell. Nesmith and Toppin, even maybe Mathurin in a deal with those guys could bring another all-star here. All 3 are young and good.
    • There's a lot of questions on what this team will look like next year. A lot of people are returning, but some could be used in trades if we go after, say, Paul George)   Returning Depth Chart:(under contract) PG: Haliburton, McConnell  SG: Nembhard, Mathurin, Sheppard  SF: Nesmith, Brown PF: Walker C: Turner, Jackson     Free Agents: Pascal Siakam(most likely to stay, but cost a lot $40m+) ** Doug McDermott(would like back at 2yr $10m range) James Johnson(vet min) Jalen Smith (player) - might elect to see if he can get more than $5.4m on open market  Obi Toppin (restricted)- could be expensive to retain/ potential S+T possibilities  Oscar Tshiebwe (restricted)(vet min) Quenton Jackson (restricted)(vet min) Isaiah Wong (restricted)(vet min)         So here is where the problem lays. Indy is small market, I think there is almost no chance we will go into the tax. So here is how that is looking.   1st Apron Tax Cap Space:(including $5.4m PO for Smith) $64m   **Siakam - Siakam should start around $42.6 million and could be 5yrs, $247.1m or 4yrs, $190.8 million.(This was based off of $142m, think they are looking at $141m now so could lower a bit. Not much.   So Pascal will probably most likely cost around $42.6m next season     That brings our 1st Apron Space to: $21.4m   Toppin (RFA tender $8-$10m)(more than likely will receive an offer bigger than that) Tshiebwe, Wong + Jackson - $5.6m   Down to $5.8-$7.8m in 1st Apron Space: (2 open roster spots)   McDermott? - $5m? Johnson? - $2m?     Going to be interesting, and is fast approaching.     Trade Pieces: Siakam (S+T, if can't agree on contract?) Toppin(S+T) Smith (if he picks up PO) Nesmith We also have (3) 2nd round picks and future 1st.
