Corey Coleman traded to the Bills for an undisclosed draft pick.

Not sure what to think about it. I loved him coming out of college but he never could stay healthy. If he stays healthy (which hasn't been able to so far) I guess there's a lot of bad targets for him in Buffalo.

This is slightly good news for Gordon owners but I think a bigger bump for that 4th rd rookie they got this year.

Re: 2018 Fantasy Football General Thread

DJ is looking at a monster season. He could break the all time yards from scrimmage record (2509) this year. Dink and Dunk Bradford going to target DJ so much this year.


I understand the argument for taking Gurley ahead of him this year but nobody else in PPR. Bell is going to be great this year but start off slow like last year. EE isn't a big reception guy.

DJ is a legit 1000 yard receiving and rushing threat.

Looking at current ADP the best spot to draft in PPR redraft right now is the 2nd pick.

You can go.

DJ - Potential league winner.
Mixon - top 5 RB ceiling
Tyreek - #1 WR in FF ceiling. Floor is 1100/6
Engram - Could easily be #1 TE in FF. Lock for top 5.

That right there is killing your draft.

That's right now. In 3 weeks you won't be able to pull that off I don't think.

Re: 2018 Fantasy Football General Thread

DJ can be a monster for sure.

You were big on Tyreek last year, but I think his ADP has adjusted properly now.

Engram...I suppose he could. As a Giants fan, interesting to see what his production is with Odell playing, Saquon taking short passes, and Sterling Shepherd still as a quality option.

I'm definitely higher on Tyreek than most of the FF community. Mahomes is a gunslinger and he fits perfectly with Tyreek. I see a Steve Smith type jump in targets but I'd argue Tyreek right now is a better deep threat than Smith ever was. He's not as tough or refined as Steve Smith was running the route tree but he's only 24 and not done developing.

Tyreek's speed is so hard to defend. Even when the defense knows what the play is they can't stop it. If you jam him at the line you better not miss or he's gone and you will miss sometimes. If you play off of him you're giving him a 7-10 yard reception.

Doesn't this help Watkins as well?

No, but he's my #2 and I would take him in ppr in the late 1st round if there, and get an RB on the way back. If he's pick #6 in a 12-teamer, and you have pick #19 on the way back, it depends on what RBs you're comfortable there or at #30.

Yeah Watkins is what's surpressing Tyreeks value right now. The same guy that hasn't produced for two years now is a threat to the most dangerous weapon in football? Watkins is no Tyreek Hill.

All that money means is KC thinks he's worth that. Doesn't mean they're right. I bank on teams being wrong about players all the time. Sometimes I'm right and sometimes I'm wrong.

Yeah plus I'm selling two properties and buying another this fall/winter. I'm going to be super busy with work and that. I'll probably just drop a name in here every once in a while.

The prices inflate. There are only so many premium players. if you inject all that money and now say 20 people have to fight for the same WR1's and RB1's, you're gonna see them bid up more. What would you expect to see if there were only 4 teams and the same $100? Everyone can get their 1's, you don't need to fight over them. Also as leagues get bigger, you may have that many more people bidding on the same "sleepers". They don't stay sleepers any longer then. But in a 4 team league, in theory those same guys might be $1 if the other 3 managers don't know the camp stars.

In Washington Guice is 5th on the depth chart and Rob Kelley is running 1st on the depth chart. It can't be right. Must be trying to motivate Guice.......

Rafiki is right.

Supply is constant and demand goes up with more teams.

Re: 2018 Fantasy Football General Thread

1.25 PPR Return yards count 12 teams (48 players kept)

Must keep 4 players this year, 3 different positions.
Must keep 5 players next year, 4 different positions.
Keepers then stay at 5 moving forward.

QB/2RB/3WR/TE/Flex

I traded my first round pick to get Zeke (lol) so my current top 3 draft picks are 13th 14th 31st

Keeping:

Gronk
Zeke
Keenan

Keep 1 of these two:

McKinnon or Tyreek (leaning McKinnon because Tyreek not that great)
