don't you think Tre' will take advantage of another opportunity?  :dunno:  :huh:


Might not have been big news but he hasn't been around for awhile





Edit: Plus Brown is a really talented runner, pretty sure he would have passed Tre on early downs regardless

I think Cunningham has enough talent to be top 10. He is a good receiver too which helps. I watched a decent amount of Cunningham this preseason and he looked very good as the starter. Not on the same level as Gurley, but a good back all around.



While nobody can say with any certainty right now, my guess is when Gurley goes down........... it will be a split between Malcolm Brown and Cunningham with Bennie picking up only a few more carries than he would within Gurley healthy. I am not carrying either RB for that reason though its very much my kind of situation to target, I looked at it hard. I did grab Brown for my taxi in several leagues during the pre-season but decided in most leagues there are just better upside situations because I firmly believe it will be a split. If you are correct that IF Cunningham gets most of the carries plus his locked in 3rd down work he will be a nice piece though.

I don't think so.  Johnson was a 3-down back prospect on a prolific offense with injury-prone competition.  None of that can be said for any of those 4 guys.


In the 3 leagues I'm in, David Johnson was getting drafted between the 8th and 12th rounds.  I can't imagine ANY of those 4 being taken before round 15.


I have been taking DWash in round 12 (PPR), he is currently my highest % owned player. At the point that I take him, Booker is usually gone already or goes shortly after.


I may not be correct for doing so, time will tell, but it does make you incorrect right now......... for the bolded.

Back on point to the OP:


From the first week of the preseason:


Here are the list of players that handled kick returns that could have upside. With the exception of Ellington, these guys are diamonds in the rough, but could pan out if the depth chart cracks a particular way:

Tre McBride (3 KO returns, 72 yards w/ a long of 35)
Jared Abbrederis (3 KO returns, 66 yards w/ a long of 34)

Mike Thomas (Rams) (2 KO returns, 45 yards)
Bruce Ellington (2 KO returns, 39 yards)

Marcus Murphy (2 KO returns, 45 yards, one for 30 yards)

Here are the list of players that handled punt returns that could have upside:

Tre McBride (3 punt returns, one for 16 yards)
Kenjon Barner (3 punt returns, 3 fair catches, one for 13 yards - Sproles usually handles this job, but it could be up for grabs)
Marcus Murphy (3 punt returns, one for 48 yards)


Really, really nice value added post Giraldi, very much appreciated. I'd love to see this board return to the point where content like this made up a solid percentage of the words someday. 

In Topic: Cooper will be a top 5 WR

13 August 2016 - 03:33 PM

Coop taking a lot of grief from Raider fans on the forums after last night. He's got good size and speed, but I'll say he's more Charlie Joiner than John Jefferson. But he needs to settle down and quit dropping the ball.



He looked a little out of it or something. He should have had a nice grab for a long gain on the sideline but didn't get both feet down on a play an above average WR makes, and an elite WR makes look easy. Pre-season I guess, but it was with Carr and all the starters still in the game, would expect him to convert it. He had a rookie on him too..........
