Who to Start Message Board
I would Still Take Golden Tate and sleep like a baby. I am not saying he is the best player out of these options... but he is in the Best Situation out of all of these guys.
well Jennings is interesting but there is a few things you need to know about him.
#1 Most important thing... the guy is injury prone. He is up their in age... with low mileage... the guys never been healthy before last year.
#2 Touch Downs?: There is news surfacing out of Camp that Rookie RB Andre Williams will be the goal line back which i completely agree with. He is a Physical Short Compact Runner that is almost as strong as a Bull! He will Vulture Many TDs from within the 20 yard lines.
#3 News of David Wilson and his recovery?:
Everyone forgets David Wilson was a top Round or second round pick last year. He is a Dynamic Runner... as well as a Great Receiver. The only Real Downside to him is his fumbling issues... which i expect him to fix this year.
I expect David Wilson to get a lot of Pass Catching opportunities out of the backfield this year.
So if David Wilson ends up being the Third Down / Pass Catching back...
Andre Williams in the Goal Line back
That leaves Jennings as a boring option... This backfield is a three headed monster you want nothing to do with.
Although Jennings is the best player potentially in these options...
Golden Tate is probably the best option.
With Calvin Drawing all of the Top Defensive threats... Golden tate should put up monstrous numbers in one of the Top Passing offenses in the NFL.
Ridley is likely the top RB option... the fact that you have Two Solid Running backs in the league...
Golden Tate is likely your best option.
Brown, Cameron & Michael Floyd.
I am not saying that Harvin isnt a Dynamic receiver the problem is he is never healthy... and hes is in a RUN heavy offense. We still havent seen what happens when Seattle lets Wilson open it up but TBH seattle will never really trail their opponents by a lot never leaving garbage time production.
Arizonas Defense will be bad however... and Good old Carson Palmer will have a lot of Garbage time production! Percy Harvin will draw Attention of Top CBS
where as how Floyd will not draw attention from top CBS due too Larry Fitz... Palmer had great chemistry with floyd at the end of the year last year... and on top of this.
one of the most Honest Coaches in the league when it comes to Fantasy news is Bruce Ariens... Ariens Said Floyd will be a SPECIAL player this year. He always holds true to his word... Expect Floyd to have WR 1 upside... which tbh Harvin would be lucky to Sniff WR 2 Production.
In my league we do 5 offensive keepers and 5 defensive keepers. I basically need help choosing my fifth keeper for offense.
my four definite keepers:
my fifth keeper has to come from the below group:
Rashad Jennings (who I'm leaning towards right now)
Rinse the Bad Taste out with some Refreshing Kool Aid... and know that you made the right Decision not drafting him. Dont waste a Second Third or Fourth Round pick on a guy like Foster just to miss Games.
He is not coming at a nice enough value to Draft someone who will miss several games.
Also Keep in mind Fosters team the Houston Texans are implementing a new Zone Blocking Scheme. This will Severly Hurt Foster and his value due to his style of running. RB andre Brown will Rise Up from the injured Graveyard To be a Much more efficient RB then Foster this year Pending Health and will take carries from Foster.
Ever Since Foster started that Vegan Diet he doesn't have enough protein intake too stay healthy. (lol joking but serious)
Depends on your team... if you have keepers with value Splurge on Graham... if not or he goes too high I wouldnt pay for Graham... try to see if you can get a guy like Gronk or Julius Thomas at a value.
In This order
Demaryius Thomas - 4th Round
Brees - Third Round
J. Cameron 7th.
The Cameron pick is a SMALL value but nothing compared to the value you will get with DT and Luck.
Even though brees is a Third round pick Value wise he is a high second round pick. Always Bring in the top players Possible So Brees is your Guy!
and Cameron I guess if you can keep 3?
luck is a great QB... but you always want to roll out your best options.
I love the first pick of charles and third pick of Ball... I just think that Going RB - RB - RB is stupid in Modern Day.
Sure Going old school worked for several years but i have to say This years RB crop is very Thick.
There are Many, Many Options. Especially in a 10 Team League. The Less Teams in a league... the less of a need for RB.
Id Go RB
WR / TE
RB (if a guy as talented as ball falls here) if not id say QB / WR / TE again
target Lower end Running backs and Play matchups... in a shallow league
Bell is fairly Sneaky in a PPR But he is a horrible Runner and He will have DRI archer a more complete RB pecking at his heels.
Ball was a very talented RB who struggled with Fumbling in his rookie season but as the end of the year he looked dynamic and he really turned a corner.
Maybe Ball will be the product of Peyton manning but regardless Ball should Trip Into 12 Touch Downs.
Antonio Brown is without a doubt the Top WR option especially in a PPR
Keenan allen is the next best guy with loads of upside! The only concern with him in Injuries... he was very injury prone in college, which is why his draft stock fell. Do not draft him with too many injury prone guys
V Jax is always the safe guy... but he disappears at time... i expect him to have a great year... but when he plays a top CB... he tends to disappear a lot.
He will have to play Carolina Twice this year and their CB has his number... so that alone is two tough matches.
The reason why i put Fitz at number 4 isn't that hes not a good option its just Fitz has clearly lost a step over the years, seems to get hurt a lot... and on top of that Cardinals have many Receiving Options that should reduce his work load.
It is very likely that Andre Ellington will be Dynamic catching passes out of the back field... The Emergence of Michael Floyd having a breakout season will hurt Fitzgeralds Draft stock as well as the young kid John Brown WR Cardinals.
Bruce Ariens Reached for this kid several rounds early because he has big plans for him (John Brown WR Rookie) Dont confuse him with Jaleel Brown or whatever his name is.
Brown Comps somewhere between a TY Hilton / Antonio Brown Both guys which were Found and Developed in a Bruce Ariens Offense.
On top of all of this after his arm heals they will have a HUGE TE TD threat in Troy Niklas Which the love child of Bruce Ariens... Bruce Ariens loves this kid.
Look in another Direction... As Dynamic as austin could be... he is more of a deep threat / Small Receiver.
His lack of size will make him a high risk of injury... and His QB is the Most efficient QB When under Pressure. Their Offensive line will not be much better... and due to the inability of his QB and Lack of a Bolstered O- Line I would look to target other Receivers Primed for breakouts such as
If you needed some deeper options
- Miles austin is a good one year guy to take a flier on...
I expect John Brown WR cardinals too be a good option after a few weeks of getting acclimated to the Offensive scheme. Bruce Ariens Loves him some John Brown... and is making up plays specifically for brown and his blazing speed. Expect Brown too Fill the Andre Roberts Role.
