He can’t really get more hyped than he already is. A huge breakout is already baked into his adp of 6 or so.

was being a little facetious, was just funny that his first carry he busts for a big run.

I don't remember this many starters playing week 1 in preseason. Good stuff.

 

Barkley looks solid, O-line still looks shaky though.

 

Mixon looks good. AJ Green will hopefully have a more consistent year. 

 

Tyrod Taylor looked good. Might need to rethink that "don't draft Cleveland players." Think Landry could have a solid year too. I'll overreact on the Njoku TD too and say that looked good.

 

Jaguars offense was solid. What if Playoff Bottles showed up every game this season? 

 

Benjamin will be the go to guy for the Bills. Don't know if I can trust whoever plays QB though.

 

JuJu in for a big year??? Nice 71 yard TD.

Haha. Was he the dude that threw 5 INT's in one half last year? Poor guy. Is he projected to be the starter? Hopefully a full offseason of reps gets him on board with Benjamin! Looked solid today though.

Yep, that's him.  Good to see him bounce back from that horrendous first NFL start.

Been saying it for a while now, but draft Baker Mayfield. 

 

Kid has it....and I am not a homer. Actually despise OU and the Browns are the Browns. However, he is gonna see the field sooner rather than later, and has the chance to be this years Watson.

 

Unfortunately, his draft stock is gonna be rising.


I feel my football knowledge is vastly superior to my opponents. I also am just in general, a smarter person. These two things should allow me a huge advantage. But I've yet to be truly dominant.

So Mack (hamstring) & Kittle (shoulder) are injuries to really monitor? Guice (knee) looks to have avoided a serious injury.

Matt Breida (shoulder) may miss time as well.

The next 3 rushes went 4 yards. And zero catches. Mixon caught 1 for 24 yards. He blew Barkley away in the passing game. ☺

So it maybe early but some things I noticed. 

 

JuJu was high on my list made a big play. 

 

DeDe who I liked made some plays. 

 

K.Benjamin who I didn't trust maybe forced the ball and be a good late pick. 

 

Stills can be had very late and maybe the Fins #1 WR. 

 

Njoku definitely looked good. 

 

Let's see how the next few weeks go. These guys might all go higher now too.

Juju will officially now go higher for anyone who watches preseason. :( I have been targeting him since the end of last year. I believe many fantasy football players react big to highlights in the preseason. Barkley's 1 run is all over the sports news and he may even move higher than he has been because of that. Interesting he wasn't targeted even once in the pass game. I thought they would want to see him have a pass play or two. But they gave Gallman 6  targets.

I kind of figure this as well. Maybe the other names won't. Barkley is still going around 6-9 in most drafts.

Good to see Luck show promise in game action. It will be a better league overall if he is healthy and slinging downfield to TY Hilton. With the additions of Slausen, Nelson, and Smith, Indi's oline could very well be top 10. If Luck has no problems come about in preseason, I'm putting him in my top 10 of QBs, and Hilton in my top 10 at WR.

Kerryon Johnson looks legit. If Blount & Riddick weren't there, he'd easily be 2nd rookie RB picked. Had a 57 yard electric called back but it had nothing to do with these moves.

Did anyone watch Josh Adams of the Eagles? I just took him as a late rookie flyer in a dynasty draft. His Stat line looked inspiring, but I didn't get to see him
