not sure I'm on the Miller train (or Penny). Think Callaway can excel if he gets his head on, but Miller just kind of underwhelmed in his rookie and th ball seems to be spread around quite a bit Chi-town.

As for Penny, I'm still a fan of Carson. But at this point, I think there is too much risky of RBBC and no value. If i can get one of them mid-to-late, I probably will. And I'll take either.

The problem with the chicago offense wasn't a lack of ability from any of the WRs, it was that Trubiski is just a bad passing QB.

If you think he can develop a better feel for the passing game then those guys all become more interesting. If you think he's not really going to get better at that facet of the game, then I'd continue to pass on all of them (depending on price).

I had Cohen, Burton and Miller on one team last year, and wound up watching a lot more Bears games than I normally would. Trubisky just looked like a college QB, the huge games he had felt like flukes compared to what he routinely looked like.

Trubisquette reminds me way too much of Bortles. He was way more productive in college so his ceiling is significantly higher but I've shied away from that entire passing attack. Otherwise I'd be all over Allen Robinson and Andre Miller at their current ADPs

I really like Miller as a WR prospect, but I cannot get behind him with Trubisky as his QB.

I have him in a dyno though, and I just hope he gets traded somewhere else.

I'll let him marinate on someone else's roster for a bit

And the year before that :)

Long term/ in Dynas? Im not sure itll happen. Could go either way.

PROs

+ Good player. Fact
+ Has been in situ for longer than some of his competition

CONs

- Jones Fracture pre-draft (Not good for RBs or shifty WRs)
- Ridley, Hall & CPat have been added
- 2020 class of WRs is about as prodigious as its been since 2014
- CHI comp for tgts is crowded: Arob, Burton, Monty & Cohen ...
- Not 100% sold on Trubisky yet

Dyna wise? The CHI players id likely buy in low on are Cohen or perhaps Burton. There wont be much of a discount, but im not sure if Miller owners would settle for much less than the 2nd-3rd rnd pick theyve paid - but (vertainly the 2nd) would likely put you in the ballpark of the other two anyway.

Im w/Griff. I do like the player. He could have a breakout.

But its also fair to say 2019 is something of a "make or break" year for Miller.

That we're saying that after 2yrs in the league (only 1 breakout game, at home vs DET D so far - regardless of circumstances isnt ideal for Miller or CHI) goes some way to showing why im unsure if hes someone that might get lost in the shuffle thanks to circumstances - not talent) in 2019.

For the price tho? Im absolutely going to try to own some shares in redrafts - perhaps after TEs have started to come off in number, or later.

No names please, but the Anthony Miller owner in Front Office was a motivated seller. I rejected three draft day trades before finally running out of names and accepted Miller for a 5th and a 7th. This leeg is a bit unique with its scoring (and it's idp), but at lotto ticket pricing I think he's still a quality gamble.

As the dancing hot dog referenced, he played almost all of last season injured. A type of injury that shelves many players. And he was still productive despite it, below avg QB play, and a play caller that involves linemen and linebackers at the goal line.

And Gabriel and Arob can be jettisoned next year with minimal cap consequences.
