    I'm chill as an iceberg homie.

    You obviously don't need much help.

    I don't really buy into the WR year 3 thing much anymore. I think it is dated.

    Last year was the only time I actually drafted Cooper. I ended up winning that league but no thanks to him.

    Brutal year for the Raiders offense last year and there were things going on behind the scenes. Anthem beef in Week 3 between Carr and his Oline was real. That is why they cleaned house and brought back Gruden and why some of the old guard is still being phased out.

    thoughts on the Saquon Barkley hype? his projections are going right after gurley, bell, dj, zeke. before the likes of kamara, hunt, fournette.

    I'd take around his ADP in a snake, but wouldn't bid on him in auction.

    I don't like taking a rookie back in the 1st round no matter how talented. Wouldn't do it with Zeke, and I most likely wouldn't do it with Barkley.

    However, I will say that Barkley is probably the new David Johnson.

    Well, here's one rookie RB you don't need to worry about. Jeez... first game, and the guy not only seemed like a good prospect but a good guy...

    Terrible.

    He was arguably better than Fournette at times at LSU.

    There is also speculation this was caused from previous damage to his knee that he elected not to have surgery on.

    Ugh... last year I was 12th out of 12 teams in the draft order. This year... 10th out of 10 teams. So much for dreams of Gurley, Bell, Johnson, Elliott, Barkley, Kamara, Fournette... heck, even Hunt.

    [​IMG]

    Cryiing and whining aside... maybe Fournette or Hunt may slip down to me... probably Cook and Gordon. Still thinking drafting RB and RB, and hope the WRs that come back to me and get Hill and Diggs? Or better to go RB and WR (getting Julio/Green) and then RB and WR when 3/4 gets back to me?

    @NewRoxFan youll still have the likes of fournette, hopkins, hunt, obj, gordon in that range. you can build a great team at any pick, especially when mistakes are picked before you where you can take advantage

    Barkley of course. But realistically, RBs: Royce Freeman, Sony Michel, Kerryon Johnson, Nick Chubb. WRs: Anthony Miller, Courtland Sutton, and DJ Moore. Best are probably Freeman, Miller and Moore.

    I'd probably go grab the dual WR1s, lots of potential fantasy points on the table, then throw darts on RB's with upside.

    Too early to tell at this point really. Need to see another couple preseason games to see who looks good and who has already carved out a role with the starters.

    I like to see a rookie RB who either has a clear path to volume, or is expected to be a cog in a well-oiled machine.

    Rashaad Penny is expected to get the starting job because he was a first round pick, but I think he was a big reach and he's not ready yet. He is also having surgery now to fix a broken finger. I won't be drafting him but I will look at Chris Carson at the very end of drafts as a flier in case Penny doesn't pan out. Carson can play, but that offense is not ideal with RB production. Not a lot of TD upside.

    Ronald Jones in TB has the clearest path to volume, but according to camp reports he still hasn't been able to assert himself over Peyton Barber. Yikes. That offense was a clown show last year.

    Sony Michel is intriguing, but we know how the Patriots RB situation can be. Also dealing with a knee injury already.

    Nick Chubb I'm not big on at all. He got hurt bad in College and I don't think he came back nearly as explosive. Michel looked better at Georgia. Carlos Hyde will probably get more carries and Duke Johnson sees the passes.

    Royce Freeman I think is a good speculative pick, but he's going to be shooting up draft boards now. He should be the lead back on early downs.

    Kerryon Johnson is talented but Detroit with Matthew Stafford is always going to be much more of a throwing offense. How many Lions RBs have been touted as the next big thing and then flamed out? I was once a big Ameer Abdullah fan. He's been nothing there. They also have LaGarrette Blount there so Johnson's TD upside is severely limited.

    Then you have the Colts. Couple of rookies there in Wilkins and Hines. I guess you've got a clear path to volume there if you stand out, but neither of those guys should be drafted.

    In short, I don't think you're going to see any Hunts or Kamaras this year.

    Maybe getting advice from players isn't that bad an idea? :D

    Hopefully next year you will participate in a real league.
