Given the truth of your qualifier, why are you recommending to target Trubisky?
Oh, now I see why you din’t have Zeke among your top 12 RBs.
You list 6 RBs to target, and only one of them is a starter–heck, one of them is currently at least third on the depth chart (White). I guess my standards are a little higher, but most of the players I want to target are starters.
And then you have about four #3s or worse among WRs. Man, I’d love to see your fantasy teams (or play against them for a lot of money)!
I worry heavily about Trubisky. A guy offered me a trade of Laviska Shenault and a late draft pick for Trubisky, and I countered with a different offer for Baker Mayfield. Kenny Pickett has looked solid in the preseason. It’s hard to see Trubisky lasting.
I couldn’t agree with these choices more.
I am seeing Najee in mocks going around the 7/8 pick. That makes this a +6 at least.
I have seen these two drop a lot in mock drafts lately, and I end up with one or both of them frequently. I don’t understand the hate for these two. Waddle has already shown he can play well with Tua, and Brown is easily the best WR in Detroit until Jameson Williams shows up later this season (maybe).
This one is all dependent on Michael Thomas. If Thomas actually shows up to play, he could dominate the target share. On the other hand, if Thomas is the strawman he has shown himself to be over the last few years, Olave could rule here.
11th best TE is still mediocre. With TE’s, you get elite, or gamble on a prospect to break out. The TE position is mostly ugly.
This is one I’ll take all the time. He will only get better.
That’s the trick. There is a risk that Trubisky will lose his starting job - if he even holds it in week 1. As long as he starts, he is a mid-range QB2, thanks to his rushing upside and the solid passing offense in Pittsburgh. But we don’t know how many regular season games he will start. Could be anywhere between 0 and 17.
I based the ADP values on the FantasyPros ADP overview. The individual results on different platforms can indeed vary quite a bit.
People are concerned about Tyreek Hill. And I would agree with them if there were 3-4 more prolific pass catchers in Miami that Waddle has to share targets with. But there aren’t. There’s Gesicki. The end. The volume for Waddle is still there, and Tyreek will even open doors for him by attracting the top CBs’ attention. I wouldn’t be surprised if Waddle finished ahead of Tyreek. But both are top 12 in my book.
As for Amon-Ra: I had initially projected Williams to play 8 games. But I have now reduced him to zero. Even if he will see the field this year, I don’t think he will be utilized a lot.
I have Michael Thomas at WR25. So I did not fade him entirely. I’m expecting a similar situation as in Minnesota, with Jefferson and Thielen. With Winston under center, there will be enough passing volume to support 2 solid WRs.
I agree. If I cannot get a top guy, I usually stream the position. But I don’t think you’ll regret spending a late round pick on Higbee.
He will, and in dynasty, he’s the most valuable TE, along with Mark Andrews. But I just don’t see him having a top 5 season this year. I see him going very early in redraft leagues, and I’m not ready to spend so much draft capital on him.
Anybody who referred to you for “useful information” in 2021 fell victim to gems like these:
“I’d keep Gibson for a 2nd round pick over Taylor for a first round pick.”
(Taylor finished as RB1, Gibson as RB10)
Robby Anderson in the 11th over Diontae Johnson in the 5th, because “Robby was a top 20 WR in PPR scoring last season (Johnson was not), and now he gets Darnold back as his QB.”
(Diontae finished as WR8, Anderson as WR49)
CeeDee Lamb over Jonathan Taylor or Keenan Allen.
(Lamb finished as WR19, Allen as WR11, Taylor as RB1)
“There’s no way (Jonathan Taylor) returns better than RB2 performance this season, so you’d only play him in Kamara’s and Elliott’s bye weeks.”
(Taylor finished as RB1, Elliott as RB6, Kamara as RB8)
“I’d be hard pressed to take Ekeler and his career-high 3 rushing TDs in a season in the 4th round if he was still on the board at that point.”
(Ekeler finished the season as RB2 overall)
“The #1 overall RB (Henry), for sure.”
(Henry finished as RB22)
I almost admire how you still maintain your “I’m the greatest, my s**t don’t stink” attitude in the light of such useful information.
Other than that, I don’t see a lot of players on your list on which we’d fundamentally disagree. Only your list is applicable only to 12-team single-QB leagues, whereas mine works for all sizes and draft strategies. Big whoop.
