've been a Melvin Gordon fan from the get-go, but he sure has tested my faith at times. His rookie year was a crap show, but so was the whole Chargers offensive line and offense. What I did see were flashes of vision, burst and finishing ability, albeit quite short and erratic flashes.
The Browns, and mostly Hue Jackson, gave Terrelle Pryor a shot to prove himself as a wide receiver, and he more than adequately did just that last year in his first full season as a wide receiver. He saw 140 targets from Cody Kessler, Robert Griffin III, Josh McCown and Charlie Whitehurst, catching 77 of those for 1,007 yards and ....
The Cleveland Browns were awful last season, but new coach Hue Jackson gave us some glimmers of hope in fantasy. His record as a running back guru is specifically where I would like to return when looking toward third-year back Isaiah Crowell's fantasy stock.
MFL10s are my favorite way to pass the time during the doldrums of the offseason, not because I think I'm going to clean up in the cash department, but because each day brings a new slant on certain players due to rumors, free agent signings, so forth and so on.
When we look at an overall season, sometimes we can get too caught up in how a player finished versus how well he played, injuries, etc., so don't always think, well, he finished in the Top 12, so he must have been a Top-12 quarterback who deserves another Top-12 ranking in 2017.
Running backs made a big return to the top of the fantasy point producers in 2016, with seven backs outscoring the top fantasy wide receivers. In 2015, Antonio Brown and Julio Jones both outscored all the running...
When you look at the top fantasy wide receivers from 2016, you'll see a lot of familiar faces, which is why the best wide receivers are usually safe picks each season. Nothing stays the same in the NFL, but a great wide receiver has a much better chance of staying at the top of his game each season than a running back.
I reference this stat a lot in my Fantasy Football articles. Running backs who carry the ball 380 or more times in a season tend to disappoint the following year.
Let's take a look at every running back who has led the league in carries the past 20 years...
I realize it is hard to know intimate details about every team in the league. But Ballard didn't need to address Luck's protection. Over the last half of the season the Colts offensive line showed major improvement. They have a solid player in Haeg and Clark went from completely worthless in preseason action to being a serviceable RT by the last 4 games. I expect the growth from Kelly across the right side of the line to be enough to have fixed the OL. Grigson was mostly worthless outside of 2012 draft but his parting gift of the 2016 draft class of lineman might have finally been the OL answer.
I understand you think from your perspective, but by now you should understand you do not come close to thinking like the Seahawks F.O., as a fan I have come to embrace not knowing their thought pattern and enjoy the ride. Many would feel you are along the lines of what the old-school GM of the Colts said of Mel Kiper. But your site keeps me amused at times
