In Topic: ODB - WTF? I think this dude wants his contract

14 August 2017 - 05:12 PM

call me a grumpy old man - but he's grabbing the ball with one hand when it isn't necessary/should be grabbing it with 2

 

I kinda hear what you are saying....damn young whippersnapper show-offs!

 

But go back and look at the first, he probably has to bring his body further around to get his other hand in position to wrap the ball with both hands in which case very likely he wouldn't have been able to continue upright into the end zone....momentum probably takes him to the ground or puts a great deal of stress on his knees.

 

In the second, its just dirty, but look at the position of the DB including his head........because Beckham left that other arm down no way for the DB to know when to jump, most DBs are watching the hands go up for timing, the ball is other side of the DB and Beckham otherwise has to go through him to get both hands on it.

 

Solid reasons for both of those IMO and he really is just that good


In Topic: CJ?K Back with the Cardinals

Per Adam Schefter...

 

Cardinals are giving 31-year-old RB Chris Johnson a one-year deal.

 

This isn't surprising with only Kerwynn Williams and Andre Ellington behind the GOAT.

 

 

"I love the smell of hyperbole in the morning"

 

A touch early for the coronation IMO,    :)


In Topic: Need Help Keeper

04 July 2017 - 02:14 PM

Scoring, PPR or standard...............any other scoring distinctions?

 

 

............starting lineup requirements, 2 RB-2WR, 1 RB- 3WR, etc., any flexes, if so how many?      

 

All that stuff is pertinent as well as whether there are other keepers, and whom if so. 

 

Its close enough on those 2 options that the more info the better.


In Topic: Under the radar?

Les also liked Charles Johnson (WR, MIN) a couple years back for similar reasons. Not throwing shade, rather making the point that these are dart throws and they work out 10-20% of the time on average.

 

 

Maybe less..............some will be a Tyrell Williams, Julian Edleman, etc, most will not. The key is if the news flow doesn't continue positively move on. I wouldn't call 'em dart throws although I think I know what you mean. If you pick up a guy based on talent plus situation/news flow it helps define the reasons for holding....and the reasons to eventually drop.

Who do you think may have a good season, but isn't currently being discussed?  I've heard name like Kevin White, Robert Woods, Marcus Wheaton, Phillip Dorsett and some others thrown around online, but is there anyone you would trade for right now that is currently being valued at next-to-nothing?

 

OK, I do have one valued at next to nothing but I wouldn't trade for him. The good news is you probably don't have to, there's a good chance he is on your WW so the cost is a roster slot. You pick him up and if the steady drum beat of good news does not continue you drop him for an early season WW gem.

 

Ricardo Louis, Browns

 

4th round pick last year

 

4.43 40 @ 6'2 215 lbs

 

18 reps on the bench press, 38 in vertical and 132 in broad jump a top quartile finisher in all.

 

A top 10 WR athlete in last years class within spitting distance of Corey Coleman and Josh Doctson in my own athletic metrics.

 

Yes, I know its the Browns and they have no QB but............... the targets in Clev are completely up for grabs IMO. I like Coleman but he keeps getting hurt and in any case he is more of a big play guy than target hog. Clev could be playing from behind a lot so may have a fair amount tgt pie to divide. The #1 WR tgt at this point appears to be Kenny Britt so there is certainly room for a young guy to make noise.

 

Look at the recent news for yourself, but R.L. has been flashing all off-season and beat writers do project him now as the #3.

 

He will train with Brandon Marshall this summer and also "hopes" to link up with Andre Johnson and Antonio Brown.

 

(In other news I hope my wife will pardon me to link up with Kate Upton this summer :))

 

All joking aside this is the kind of news flow/situation you want in a developmental prospect.

 

I couldn't find Doug's commentary on him from the '16 draft but I'd be curious to know what he thought/thinks of R.L. as a prospect. There's a lot to like IMO.
