trying something new...let's have some fun here.  Join in and add your three.


1. Jamaal Williams is not the answer at RB in Green Bay.  Aaron Jones is the one to own.

2. Enunwa is Darnold's number one target not Anderson

3. People were right on these boards about tyreek Hill, I refused to agree. He is a threat to pass brown as the number one WR in fantasy.

Idk that any rb is ever the one to own in GB. It's not Williams though, that much I agree with

That injury scare rodgers had just reinforces the need to play Williams for his pass protect.

 

These are not the same ol Jets and Browns

 

Coaches that made their debut with their new teams last week all got smacked.

At the threat of derailing, I’ll have some fun and do 3 things we learned after week 1 last year.

1. Tarik Cohen is going to be special and he’s the RB to own on the Bears.

2. Austin Hooper is a top 5 te.

3. Kamara isn’t anything special and is just a 3rd down guy.

1. Tampa will have the most prolific offense the NFL has ever seen

 

2. Tampa will beat the Eagles by 2 TD's this week

 

3. Tampa will go 16-0

 

(ok, so I only learned #2 - to an extent.  The Bucs will win, but 2 TD's is extreme.   I won't learn #'s 1 and 3 until about Week 6.)

You're talking like Jamaal Williams is miles ahead of jones in pass blocking. Jones had an excellent camp and closed the gap considerably. Also, Williams provides little to no fear in opposing teams game plans when preparing to play the packers . Jones is a threat, especially on a draw. That in itself will slow down the pass rush.

I'll bump this thread again and again ..jones is the one to own in Green Bay

1) The Bears are who we thought they were. They stood no chance of standing up to the greatest comeback since Easter Sunday.

 

2) Your car was stolen. Khalil Mack just ran down the driver on foot, yanked him from the car, educated him on the error of his ways, enrolled him in an after school program, gave him $5, and drove your car back to your house for you. He saved two puppies from a burning building on the way. He says 'no problem' to your belated 'thank you'.

 

3) Phillip Rivers spent all of practice on Tuesday throwing the ball as hard at he could at his receivers' ankles and screaming "What!? You wouldn't catch it anyway!"

They may want that but at some point I think they will also want a Running game. Jones was having a good camp and supposedly picking up pass protect. I bet especially after last week they got someone with jones to make sure he is getting it down. It is too predictable to have a Rb who can’t effectively run the ball.

I don't mean to upset the jones truthers and I don't really care about Jamal Williams but this is a 3 man committee and the #1 objective is to keep Arod upright. The packers believe JWill is a better pass protector. If you want to dream of A Jones as a lotto ticket, bump away...

Any throw that isn't caught by Rivers receiver, no matter the circumstance, is the receivers fault

  1. No O + No D = the new browns .. aka Buffalo Bills, welcome to 0-16
  2. Giving up 48 points to TB and 40 y old Fitzmagic does no bode well for your Superbowl run Saints.
  3. Matt Patricia – when your last name is a womans first name you’re destined for failure as we see another Bellichick expat fall way off the familiy tree.

The Pats D will prob be better this year without the bum. The last few years I thought they didn't quite live up to their potential

Belichik is horrible at drafting offensive skill players and hiring coordinators. He had to have known his coordinators sucked, yet he kept them around until they found better jobs. Maybe that's the plan. Hire idiots who are capable enough, but not smart enough to actually steal BBs blueprint

I go RB heavy every year in a PPR auction league. Including certain backups behind other teams starters. I've been in the championship game 3 of the last 4 years and won twice.

I play in leagues with good owners besides myself.

But like I have said before. Fantasy is mostly luck. You can win with any strategy as long as your guys stay healthy and perform.

If you picked a a WR in the top 2 rounds you were happy with them in week 1.

RB is a share time position now a days. Those who grabbed Collins or Drake over Hill or Evans arent happy with week 1. Those who took Hunt Fournette over Julio and ODBjr arent thrilled.

Those who drafted rookie time share Freeman ahead of quality WRs because they wanted to load up at RB...are not happy.

You can win with any plan. But people are around here are a bit too hipster about RB heavy for me.

If we went off of this site then Fournette was the #1 RB on orths board. He was "safe" he lost weight.

Then we had threads of most likely to bust and Kamara seemed the run away choice. Knocked for workload when in reality like 75% of starting backs are in some sort of real time share.

I have to disagree. 1/2 PPR league and I won my first championship with Bell, Gurley, Ingram.

 

I think the drop off in RB points is significant, if you have a couple workhorse RB you can do really well.

Except that if you drafted Kamara, Gurley, Gordon, Mixon or Barkley you're pretty happy.  You're using hindsight to justify your point of view.  Nice!  You're also over-reacting just a little to week 1.  Also, if you had Bell and wisely snatched up Connor as his handcuff, then you're pretty happy as well.

This is basically an overreation thread.

You shouldnt go WR or RB. Heavy unless guys fall. Or you end up reaching.

See, that's how you look at things. If you don't agree, you just say I'm in a non-competative league. It's a 12 team auction league with high dues and not only yearly payout but % of shares in investment dollars that we have been contributing to for over 10 years at stake. A few people fly in from out of state yearly to take part in the draft because of the competition and great league setup.

You are willing to throw any crap out there to try to win a point.

Now you sound like Weepaws. 

 

He always tries claiming that FF is 'mostly' luck or 'all' luck or some other similar claim. I try to suggest every year that he really rely mostly on luck for a team and see what happens. Draft randomly, pickup free agents randomly, make trades randomly, start your players randomly. See how you do. He never seems to take me up on that one :)

 

FF has luck. But even if a player goes down, you need to use skill to do research to pick a new player, to determine who to start (which broadly speaking is predictable, even if not always precise--how a player will match up against a defense is a bit of research that really does track the eventual stats--look at Hopkins vs NE as a good example). It's some of both luck and skill. But it's not 'mostly' luck by any means.
