    Instant Fantasy Analysis - QB Dwayne Haskins, Redskins

    This Running QB's are fantasy gold. Remember Tim Teebow? Terrible QB, but his rushing yards made him a good QB for fantasy. This has nothing to do with skill its about playing style.

    Instant Fantasy Analysis - QB Dwayne Haskins, Redskins

    well, there is no question managment (and ownership) is a bit of a dumpster fire. That is always a possibility. but top talent usually does well despite these factors. There are always exceptions in cases where the disfunction is exceptionally bad, but I think its a good rule to live by. Bottom line: Either you believe in Haskins or you dont.

    Instant Fantasy Analysis - QB Dwayne Haskins, Redskins

    I agree with Brutus. I think hes more choked at sliding in the draft. it cost him money and maybe hurt the ego just a bit. Personally I think the hurt ego is maybe the best thing for him. I truly believe that some players read all the good press and think they are better than they actually are. so this scenario actually gives him a better chance at success because he may work that much harder to become the player he was supposed to be. As for the mobility thing, its overrated. While a mobile QB forces a Defense to do things differently, those types of QB's seem to have shorter careers. (likely due to the extra hits they take playing this style) I think his chances of success are about the same as any first round QB. The scouting report says a lot of good things. At this point its mostly a matter of waiting to see how quickly he picks up the offense. As for the comment about coaches believing a QB needs to be able to run their system, Id say that's true to a certain extent. I think a coach also needs to be willing to adjust the system and insert certain plays to maximize the talents of the QB he has. In Today's NFL, If you just try to make a player fit the system, that can sometimes be a recipe for failure. you need to be willing to adjust the system to fit the talent available. If the talent does not exist to do things a certain way, you need to find another way to get the job done. This often means adjusting your scheme to give your players their best chance at success.

    Instant Fantasy Analysis - WR Parris Campbell, Colts

    its hard to say. Maybe its a case where teams could never contain him on the short routes, so why push him to do more when you dont have to?

    I'd agree. The player needs some development still, but I'd say he landed in the right place. Seattle loves to trade down and pick players with potential who they feel they can develop. I wouldnt be surprised if they have him running a decent route tree by midseason and have special plays developed just for him and his skillset ready for opening week.

    Dynasty league value question

    The problem with Brady is definitely his age. in my experience its better to cut bait on a player like that one year early rather than one year too late. I'd shop him around. That being said, you didnt say how many players you guys keep in your league. That will play a role in the price people pay for Brady. If only keeping one or two, you may have a hard time moving him, even to a Brady lover/pats fan. If keeping 3 its hit or miss. if keeping 4 or more, you should find a market for him its just a question of what people are willing to pay. That being said, it also depends on what your keepers actually are. In some cases you are better off hanging onto Brady until the season starts. if he puts up a big game or two early, people will forget about his age and trade for his value Today. The first 2 games are Pittsburgh and Miami. While Pittsburgh is traditionally a tougher opponent, they are missing Antonio Brown so will have a big hole to fill. They might be a decent matchup. Miami(week2) has been a train wreck of late. If you keep him, I'd plan to shop him after the Miami game. only downside of this strategy is you will NEED to pickup another QB in the draft. Possibly earlier than you wanted to initially. and its not a guarantee the strategy will work.

    Zeke, might hold out........

    I dont think there are too many cities that like football more than they do in Dallas. He could take less in Dallas and still make more than other locations because of the endorsement revenue. I hope hes not stupid enough to hold out and force a trade. But hes done some pretty dumb things so far, maybe this will just be added to the list.

    Ju Ju after AB trade?

    I'm not worried about juju. if you look back at the pittsburgh receivers, the vast majority of the WR's playing during the years Rothlisberger was the starter had their best statistical years while playing in pittsburgh. Santonio Holmes Plaxico burress Mike wallace Martavious bryant. all 4 had better stats overall while in Pittsburgh than they did on other teams. some had a good season here or there, but most performed far better with Rothlisberger at the helm. To me this is a statement on how good a QB he is. This also would suggest what I think is going to happen to Antonio Browns stats now that he has left the Steelers. the only WR to buck the trend was Emanuel Sanders who performed better playing with Manning in Denver than he did in Pittsburgh. I do think Juju will do well, and I also think another WR will emerge and perform well as the #2. I'm calling it now.

    yeah, only a couple really worth taking a flyer on in the draft. the rest are likely free agent pickups if they show early in the season.

    Instant Fantasy Analysis - RB Josh Jacobs, Raiders

    a lot of people (myself included) are of the mind you dont just give a job to someone, you make them earn it. Martin is at least good enough to do that. After all, if he cannot beat him out for the starting job, I'd question if hes truly a starter to begin with.

    Tyreek in trouble

    for the record, the reason they dumped hunt was not because of what happened. Apparently it was because they questioned him about it and he lied to the team. the reality is, it was probably because of both.

    Instant Fantasy Analysis - RB Damien Harris, Patriots

    This has ALWAYS been the case in New England. Belichek loves doing RB by committee with each person having a special job that they do. For this reason I've never wanted to draft a Pats RB as a starter. They are fine as backups, but as starters, there is more risk than normal because of the teams tendency to split up the workload.
