Topics I've Started

Sam Darnold - QB - USC

03 January 2017 - 12:45 AM

We all know of a handful of current collegiate QB's that could one day make a big splash in the NFL, including fantasy football, of course.  But who will be the next Peyton Manning, Tom Brady, Aaron Rodgers, etc.?

 

Baker Mayfield with OU certainly seems a likely candidate.  However, although we will have to wait a while, I am predicting that USC freshman QB Sam Darnold could well be one of the NFL's greats.....if he can stay healthy, of course.

 

Not a USC fan, but had a chance to see him a few times this year....and he is as close to a natural as I have ever witnessed. Prototypical size, poised, high football IQ, accurate, with great escapability. He has IT. Under the bright lights of the Rose Bowl, against a legit Penn State Defense, he went for 450+ yards and 5 TD's......and made it look easy He was unflappable. Ice water in his veins.Just another day at the office.

 

Store that name away in your your medulla oblongata, fellers. I'm calling it early. ....really early.


Jordan Howard - Next Year

26 December 2016 - 12:04 PM

As I mentioned in another thread, he is undoubtedly the free agent RB pick up of the year, He is the real deal. Dominated on a crap team, with no QB......often playing from behind.

 

First rounder next season?


Eifert - OUT Week 16

22 December 2016 - 02:28 PM

Held out of practice again today (Thursday). Tomorrow will tell the tale, but owners need to have another option available,

 

Tyler Eifert (back) remained sidelined on Thursday.

Advice: Eifert's status is clear as mud ahead of Saturday night's game against the Texans. Considering his injury history, fantasy owners should be preparing to be without Eifert for finals week. Hopefully his availability is clear by Saturday morning.

Fournette and McCaffrey

21 December 2016 - 12:12 PM

As you probably know, both Fournette (LSU) and McCaffrey (Stanford) have opted to skip their bowl games to "focus on the upcoming draft".....i.e. prevent any potential injury that might jeopardize their NFL future.

 

Most are calling this a smart business move. I call it low character and quitting on your team/coach/fans. Yes, it is only the Buffalo Wild Wings Bowl and Sun Bowl, but it is the pinnacle of your season, and these are guys with whom you have shared blood, sweat, and tears, relying on one another as a team. Anyone who has played serious team sports understands.

 

I, of course, understand it......but don't approve of it. What say ye?

 

 


T.U. - Week 15 (Thank U)

18 December 2016 - 08:09 PM

We are all quick to shred our underperforming players, and rightly so. However, I felt a playoff-edition thread of appreciation would be appropriate for players that propelled us to next week. I will start things off....and congrats to winners today (and condolences to those who didn't):

 

-Devonta Freeman. Didn't disappoint in an excellent matchup...and didn't let Coleman bleed you dry. Hat's off, sir.

 

-LeSean McCoy. Stud all year - stud in playoffs

 

-Brandon Friggin' Cooks. You have been an underperforming sapsucker all year, but I stuck with you, and you delivered big-time when I needed you most.

 

-Nick "The Kick" Novak. Yes, kickers get love too when they actually act like a football player and show me something. Injured early in the game, but limped around and gutted it out, delivering 15 much-needed points for me.
