  1. Not that he does himself any favors with his inability to slide but the dude is made out of pure glass. Pretty funny everyone had durability and "small stature" concerns over the QB that was taken 74 picks later in the same draft and who has yet to miss a single game.

    By the way, whoever has Gary Barnidge in your guys' fantasy league should be doing backflips over this occurrence. 

  2. Saw this stat on Rotoworld (for those who watched the entire game, you probably already know this): "Andy Dalton targeted A.J. Green 10 times in Darrelle Revis’ coverage. He completed all 10 passes for 152 yards and a touchdown."

    I could be citing the wrong place but I believe PFF also graded Revis very poorly in the second half of last year. How the mighty have fallen... 

    Really hope Watkins doesn't play this week or is limited, although despite Mehta and Schefter's comments he only missed 8 snaps this weekend, fwiw.

  3. Mehta says Watkins could be shut down for several weeks. That would bode really well for the Jets if he can't go on TNF or isn't close to 100% ((don't forget it's a short week as well and Schefter said he wasn't 100% just prior to yesterday's game). Buffalo was thoroughly stale vs Baltimore and are pretty banged up in general. If you contain McCoy (and Tyrod running), Jets should be able to win. 

  4. Pretty impressive win by the Pats all things considered. 3 Brady-less games to go, all of which are at home against stiff but beatable teams, and the cherry on top is that the rest of the division lost. 

    Lots of exciting games this week but I think Raiders/Saints was the best. Jack Del Rio has a massive pair of balls, man.

    Actually, the uniforms they wore in that Giants game were the circa 1966 uniforms, but I agree- I wish we'd go back to those permanently, or a variation of a past throwback like the Marino era jerseys... The color rush jerseys are a joke and one day we'll look back at them the way we do the FoxTrax glowing puck and 90's NHL throwbacks- ideas we knew were horrible at the time, but are simply products of their era. 'The kids' like this sh!t. Once 'the kids' grow up and become adults, they'll wonder what the fvck they were thinking.

    Ha, I used to be so enamored by alternate jerseys when I was younger. Despite being a die-hard Devils fan I still bought a Blue Jackets road blue jersey (with the green face thing on the patch) because I thought it was so cool (ok, it wasn't an alternate uniform but I just loved the jersey in general)... and I was so gaga over the Bruins' 3rd jersey - the bear head on yellow and jagged black around the bottom. If I were a more spoiled child, I would've had many more... I was nuts for 3rd jerseys. :lol:

  6. Disappointing loss with deGrom on the hill. Looked like they had a great chance to get back into it late but that Conforto DP was a backbreaker. In the glass-half-full view, they did come away with 3-of-4 at least and sit just 2 back of STL with no team in front of them (albeit PIT and MIA are breathing right down their necks). Some of that good may come undone this weekend though with Washington in town and the Cards facing the terrible Reds.

  7. I like that Flores has made me alter my stance on him this year, but he has a pretty massive platoon split:

    vs RHP: .228/.286/.339

    vs LHP: .344/.390/.699

    You're not talking huge samples with the above, but his career splits bare out a similar picture, so it's hard for me to get behind him as anything more than a short-side platoon player somewhere on the infield. He's a better fit a super-utility infielder who gives Starter X, Y, or Z a breather on day-after-night/Sunday games and serves as your top PH off the bench vs LHP.

  8. With the obvious caveat that's applied to Gore for half a decade now (more?) -- that the wheels could fall off at any moment -- I like him this year. He was still quietly just outside the top 10 RB in standard scoring last year despite all that went wrong with Indy/Luck and has a bunch of journeymen behind him on the depth chart. 

  9. I'll believe it when I see it, re: Yo! opting in... but with as much sh!t luck we've had this year, we deserve something bat sh!t crazy like that to happen. Would make me feel so much better entering 2017 knowing we can plug in Yo! in the heart of the lineup...

    Actually I meant 8 this AM. :)

    Round 1 Pick 12 is an old faithful, Jamaal Charles, RB, KC

    Round 2 Pick 13 is someone I've had blind faith in for so many years and now that he's in the right situation, it will be a good time for him to blossom into a stud RB: Lamar Miller, RB, HOU

    Don't want to spam your draft thread, but I love Lamar Miller this year... he was so underutilized in Miami and still finished as a top 10 RB in standard scoring the last two years. Houston was probably the best landing spot possible for him and he's still just 25 years old. Won't be shocked in the least if he's this year's RB1.

    I just hate when Met hitters get demoted to the PCL and promptly start putting up fantasy numbers.  Are they really learning anything?  Improving on deficiencies?  You just KNOW Conforto will come back here and promptly go 1-for-15.  And what's maddening is that it doesn't look like the Mets will be setting up AAA-shop anywhere else anytime soon.  It'd just be nice to be able to get ANY kind of read on the Mets' AAA players.  Matt Bowman is a perfect example...the guy looked like a lost cause last season, but has been a decent reliever at the major-league level this year.  Maybe it's a fluke, maybe it's luck, maybe he won't repeat this...but it would've been nice to see him pitch in a normal environment last season. 

    Yep, this is why I vehemently hated the move to the PCL when it happened... it's total joke environment and just makes player analysis more difficult. 

  12. Yeah, Bowman has been way better than I expected. Solid K/BB, tons of groundballs. Probably nothing more than a middle reliever ceiling still, but that's a major success for a Rule 5 guy who looked like a lost cause after last season.

    No idea what the Mets can do to sure up the 5th starter spot the rest of the way; maybe try Lugo, Gsellman, or Gilmartin... Gsellman would be my first choice but he's not exactly lighting it up in AAA and the others may be no better than Verrett or Niese. Maybe they can search the waiver wire for another Niese-type and cross their fingers.

     

     

  13. The Mets really do need to keep Walker. Despite being overshadowed by the crying over spilled milk with Murphy, and all things Murphy in general, he's been one of the best 2B in the league this year and arguably the best Mets' position player (the one player making it arguable being Cespedes, a no-doubt goner this winter).

    If not Walker, who is your 2B next season? Herrera was shipped out. Cecchini's offensive profile is reminiscent of Ruben Tejada and he's an error machine in the field who hasn't ever played a single inning at 2B. Reyes? LOL. Flores has proven to be a useful part but more so as lefty-mashing utility infielder. A free agent? Check out the 2B list, it's horrendous. 

  14. I preferred Gomez to Cespedes as well.

    Gomez was having a down year, sure, but he was one of the best players in the game in 2013 and 2014 and came with another year of control (I didn't like Cespedes because the Mets were something like 3 or 4 games behind Washington, so I wanted a 2016-controlled player). Nobody could've really predicted he'd fall off a cliff like this, although I'm sure the medicals that spooked the Mets out of the deal have played some kind of a role in this meltdown. 

    Cespedes, on the other hand, was having a pretty great year but the track record suggested he'd regress in the second half.... but instead, like Gomez, nobody could've predicted what happened next (Cespedes turning into a complete monster).
