Echoing the above. I don't know squat about the Bills.

However ..... If you took a flyer on Allen in a deeper dyno, you're likely pleasantly surprised by his point totals. He was always a fantasy long shot.

If you got him as a booby prize in a superflex dyno draft, you are entitled to a modest fist pump IMO.

One of these players has more sustainability in their rushing totals weekly moving fwds/ long term than the other - as things stand.



Yep. Looks right.

Needs improvement across the board (feet, patience, accuracy etc) next year. Not holding my breath.

Leadership, toughness, grit all that bollocks? Yeah. Great, but that alone aint enough.

I get the ceiling, and why they did it (why!!!? ](*,) ), the 2-3 times per game he is accurate deep it is pretty and a nice fireworks "ooh/ahhh" moment.

Rest of the time? Ummm, not so much.

Ill bet he looks great on redzone :F

Posting it here because i dont know where else to put it and its - like most things Bills O related - not worth its own thread.



Idiot, right?

Yeah, Bills just signed him. Wheeeeeeeeee

(For those w/long memories, its Dhaquille Williams ex-AUB, Rams & - lately - Edmonton Eskimos)

Ha ha ha. I didn't realise that's who it was but the amount of receptions the guy gets just made me put him on the deep deep sleepers list.

The article probably highlighted most of our thoughts right here in this gem:

"OK, so mobility is one thing they have in common, along with having two arms, two legs and a head. Also, neither of them have been in my kitchen. Beyond that, Morse may be the first person to draw the link between the two."

Just posting it here as some might enjoy it.

This isnt a pro/con thing.

If youre into the nuts and bolts and mechanics of QB play, this is a genuinely open and frank discussion about some of the travails of a young QB in the league - from one old ex hand to someone just starrting.

Really enjoyed Simms doing this and hope he does much more.

You have no idea how enthused people are when they land Josh Allen in my Dynasty startups... I'm off to the side thinking, whoopee... dude is probably a 2 year rental :F

Foster spent his whole college career stuck behind Amari Cooper and Calvin Ridley (and other talented receivers like Jeudy) in a run first offense then tested well as an athlete; so while his college production was abysmal it's very possible he could be a very good receiver who just couldn't supplant 3 future 1st round picks. I'm not investing heavily into Foster, but he's a decent sleeper

If he some decent improvement this season, I think he will be there longer than 2 years.

Possibly, but I'm not optimistic.

If i was talking about Foster as a sleeper, id have mentioned him in the sleeper thread :wink:

(Also no need to tell me about a guy i was talkign about last September!)

My post was really about Allen and his 18 progression (vs lack of receiving options). Its best taken in conjunction w/the Simms vid post

I've got Allen AND LJ as my only 2 qbs in Deep Platinum.
I wake up in the middle of the night screaming "Fitzmagic!"
