Also considered: Trubisky, Corey Davis, Budda Baker, Hunt, McCaffrey

This is definitely biased toward players who showed out well early on; I left Thomas on there because he's got so much talent I still expect him to put it all together eventually. Lots of guys who fit that bill in this draft. Absolutely loaded at defensive back. Didn't even get to Hooker, Adams, Humphrey, or any of the others.

While he hasnt made a code switch from nfl to afl but basketball to afl im sure some americans can appreciate his success story as a football fan.

For those of you too lazy to watch the video: The clip shows a sport similar to what we Americans play on grade school playgrounds called "500". However, instead of throwing a football up in the air to see who can catch it these Australians are kicking the ball in the air. As you'd expect if there was only 1 American on the field - the American is dominating the game and is leaving a few of the Australians mumbling under their breath "yeah, I bet he couldn't do that if we used a boomerang".

Marcus Williams is definitely not better than Adams. Misses too many plays for me but everyone on that defense is having a **** year so far. Surprised with Lattimore being that bad so far as his only knock was that he was injury prone in college.

Mahomes already has about as many TD passes in his career as Trubisky does.

Re: NFL Regular Season 2018

Williams has enormous range at FS which is way more valuable than being a close to the line guy. I also admittedly am biased and did not particularly care by the time I got to the end of the list.

I didn't watch much of Lattimore specifically vs. Cleveland but I don't think he was bad as he was against Tampa, which is in part a reminder that Mike Evans is really good even if Lattimore did shut him down last year.

I've been watching Mahomes film breakdown pron pretty much nonstop. This guy seems like the sharpest one I've seen yet.

Hunt made the highest leverage play of the game Sunday imo - 9 yards on first down to seal it. If we don't get a first there I think we lose - as our defense can never stop Big Ben in a do or die spot. Also he made a great play on that TD catch.

He looks like he's still slashing and running just as hard. I think teams have just figured out how to bottle up our run game from the end of last year and are still running that playbook - much to Mahomes' delight.

I have a feeling Hunt will have a few big games in the near future as teams focus on Mahomes. One thing with Reid is someone new seems to have the big game each week. Also the Chiefs have a healthy Spencer Ware back - who was really damn good a couple years ago and has a couple good runs this year so far. The depth on the Chiefs offense is matched only by the lack of depth on defense.

Obviously but I'm just not a Williams fan. I wouldn't take him over adams even with that positional need disparity.

What I meant was the fact that he doesn’t get close to the top 10 of a redraft 1 yr after being leading rusher in the league

But yeah, he’ll get his yards this year too, one Mahomes drops out of God mode. He’s really good

Re: NFL Regular Season 2018

a lot of players would be re-drafted now then they would at the end of the season last year. in a few weeks the list could probably be potentially very different based on how a player did the last week or an injury.

Re: NFL Regular Season 2018

I love Rotoworld's sense of humor

Quote:
Speaking after Thursday's win over the Jets, Browns coach Hue Jackson said he would have to "watch the tape" before naming his Week 4 starter.
The tape will tell Jackson to start Mayfield, and the No. 1 overall pick will be under center against the Raiders.

Coach Hue Jackson will meet with the team Monday to announce his decision on the Browns' starting quarterback.
His decision will be Baker Mayfield.

Re: NFL Regular Season 2018

On September 17th, 1995 - the Chiefs' James Hasty intercepted the Raiders' Jeff Hosteler in OT and ran it back 64 yards for a TD - snatching victory a from very likely defeat. I remember it like it was yesterday. https://www.pro-football-reference.c...9509170kan.htm

Why do I bring that up? It's also Mahomes birthday. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Patrick_Mahomes



6:00

Lol at Neil Smith picking up Hostetler by his crotch. That's a paddling in today's game.
