  1. Surprise Teams of 2019

    Cards, Lions, and Bills
  2. I think Dez is technically a free agent. He could be an interesting option as a big red zone target for Cousins, a QB that has historically not been outstanding in that part of the field.
  3. I hope that you guys aren't holding any of this against Antonio Brown. It's just the Madden curse.
  4. Cowboys extend LB Jaylon Smith

    Think the Titans are more likely to hold onto Brown and let Woodyard walk after this season. Run Jayon Brown and Rashaan Evans as the two ILBs.
  5. Current NFL QBs that Elevate Supporting Casts

    I mentioned Luck at the start of the thread. He may be the single player in the league that has had the most on his shoulders when it comes to carrying the offense over the past six years or so.
  6. Current NFL QBs that Elevate Supporting Casts

    Quick question: when was the last time a Brees offense had a bad season? Yes, he currently has two great weapons. Alvin Kamara is a top-5 receiving back. Michael Thomas has the biggest WR contract ever. Who was the number two WR last year? I remember that they got Ted Ginn but he got hurt really early. Dez Bryant never even saw the field for the Saints. What about TE? Drew Brees has MADE weapons for most of his career. The roster has been really bad for a lot of his time in New Orleans, but he's made the team competitive, and they've consistently been a top team offensively, despite the RBs always being hurt/unavailable until recently and never really having multiple good WRs besides 2015 and 2016. He elevates the offense. Try to find a legitimate way to refute that.

    Patriots 2018 roster: - 1st-round RB, Sony Michel (higher investment than Alvin Kamara). Played really well, too. - Julian Edelman, pro-bowl caliber WR and Super Bowl MVP - Josh Gordon, one of the most gifted WRs in the league - Rob Gronkowski, GOAT TE when it comes to talent, although he wasn't in GOAT shape this past year. Still a top-5 TE - Trent Brown, a mega-contract tackle - Marcus Cannon, one of the best RTs in the league - Shaq Mason, arguably the best guard in the whole NFL - Trey Flowers, mega-contract DE - Dont'a Hightower, top 10 ILB. - Devin McCourty, pro bowl safety - Jason McCourty, #1 CB talent as seen in Tennessee, Cleveland, and this past year in New England - Patrick Chung, who has been a starter all 10 seasons of his career and is considered one of the better safeties in the league, but NOT top-10 - Stephon Gilmore, elite lockdown CB - Adrian Clayborn, coming off of a 9.5 sack season You really think the Patriots roster was bad? With arguably the best secondary in the league? Brady even had more options on offense than Brees for the majority of the season.
  8. SEA rookie WR DK Metcalf gets knee scope

    Keith Marshall in WR form? I like DK, for what it's worth... But I also guaranteed that Keith Marshall would become a perennial 1,000 yard, 10 TD guy.
  9. Training Camp/Pre-Season

    I thought Buddy Howell looked really good yesterday. What do you guys think? Any chance of stealing Higdon/Crockett's spot? I mean, he has some power to him, which is literally the only compliment I've hear BOB give the two rookie UDFAs. Ran well at FAU but was relegated to a smaller role when Devin Singletary emerged. 2nd-year guy.
  10. Daniel Jones is looking better than Haskin

    Do I get points for supporting @Gmen with Daniel Jones defense in the NFL Draft forum? Cuz I bought low a while ago. Then again, I'm the idiot who talks himself into saying that the NFC East has great QB situations every year. "Eli Manning is a 2-time Super Bowl Champ and Geno Smith has high upside as a backup! Kirk Cousins is the TRUE Redskins franchise QB. Carson Wentz is winning MVP AND Super Bowl MVP this season. Dak is an elite QB." Jeez, takes from the start of 2017 haven't aged well.

    Worst defense in the league. On offense, the dude turned water into wine. And he happens to play offense.
  12. Current NFL QBs that Elevate Supporting Casts

    I was one of the biggest Pat Mahomes II fans in the scouting community. I wasn't surprised at ALL last year when he immediately started putting up the numbers that he did. I got him in the 2nd round of fantasy in 2018 just to make sure that nobody else would get him. I got him round 1 this year. The only thing in my mind that's keeping me from listing Mahomes is sample size. I just haven't seen ENOUGH receivers get elevated under him. This year should be telling with a few new weapons. I will say this, though. The Reid offense is great for RBs, but I think we're seeing it get even more RB friendly as Damien Williams got some great looks due to teams respecting Mahomes so much. That alone is a form of elevation. His mobility bails out his O-Line at times. His talent is undeniable. I just want to see more reps.
  13. NFL General Random Thoughts Thread

    Stafford probably has to win 10 games and throw for 3:1 TD: INT in order to stick around in Detroit after 2019.
  14. Current NFL QBs that Elevate Supporting Casts

    I mean, when you look at Big Ben, not many of his WRs over the years were very heralded when they got to Pittsburgh, but a lot of them were after they left.
  15. NFL General Random Thoughts Thread

    See, I think he's more likely to be Flacco than Stafford, but I could see how most people view Stafford as his ceiling. Not sure if Haskins has the clutch factor that Stafford has. Does anyone feel like Matt Stafford is kind of underrated, though? I mean, nobody has more forth-quarter comebacks than Stafford in his time in the league. And for most of the Lions' wins here of late, he's been having to overcome his own team's porous defense.
