In the end zone 1 on 1 he's still one of maybe 10 guys I'd be throwing a jump ball to in the NFL. Hard to coach that. But it's possible his twitter game will keep him from the NFL. He's like Trump that way.
While he is only 29, persistent leg injuries have slowed him down quite a bit. He struggles to get separation and his numbers last year were decent only because of target volume. I agree with on jump balls though.

Re: 2018 Fantasy Football General Thread

I know he's not old but a major headache and not as polished of a receiver as he should be with his experience though?

Someone for sure will give him a chance but he's going to have to compromise financially it seems like and his twitter game sure isn't helping

He also won't play special teams, which means nobody will sign him to take on a smaller role in the offense.

I think when you look at the list of top 30 WR's in fantasy, there are PLENTY of names Dez can displace. I think that's about the extent of the conversation.

Re: 2018 Fantasy Football General Thread

Don't think I've seen as any good player prop lines as today, ever. Either I'm a huge fish or the lines are awful.

I have a lot of action on Stills over 54.5 yards receiving. Weird line. Same with Pettis over 42.5

Pettis looked good last week, just not sure if he's going to get Slay or not. That will probably be the difference

Re: 2018 Fantasy Football General Thread

I just got offered in NON PPR

Thielen, Freeman, Jags D

JuJu, Fitz, Yeldon

Long term is this worth it? My starting RB/WR core when healthy would be...

M Gordon, McCaffery, Freeman, Burk, Ekeler
Hilton, Thielen, Jeffery, Crowder

I have to accept this asap right?

Idk...Freeman's injury is supposedly worse than has been let on and will probably at least linger all year from what I've heard. I don't love trading for him at this point and Theilen is great, but non-ppr hurts him a decent amount. Wouldn't blame you for accepting, but don't think it's a super snap or anything.

Really? Thielen is by far the best player in that deal. I snap that and then instantly trade Freeman for Marlon Mack or something like that......

he finished as the WR24 last year ahead of a lot of big names. We're saying the same thing, but that doesn't mean he can't be a WR3 somewhere.

OK I just don't see more than 5 targets a game for him so I don't see even a top 30 finish for him....

He was 12th in the league last year in targets at 132....

Let me put it this way. If he dresses for someone from week 3 onward, he finished with more points than Ross

Bloom from FBG put Tyreek's over/under on receiving TD's this season at 14.
Damn I'm ****ing good sometimes.

Mahomes is just so good bro. I mean the league is going to start figuring out how to make it harder on him but he doesn't really have a weakness he's going to make the Chiefs offense one of the best in the league.

Mahomes was so close to hitting Tyreek on an 81 yard TD on that sack....

If TB stays with Fitz then you can upgrade OJ Howard. He will be a top 10 TE with Fitz and a TE2 with Winston.
