I think I'm finally off the Stafford train. He can be someone else's QB.

I've got some faith in Kerryon, though. RB15 sounds about right and I'd look at picking him up if available. Although I do worry about CJA vulturing TDs.

I'd probably pick up MJJ over Golladay in standard. But Golladay is an easy PPR pick at WR19.

For as much as I think the Loins are going to struggle and how clear they've made it they want their RB's to share some of the load...as good as I think Kerryon is - juice isn't worth the squeeze for me.

Looked at the RB list, and I'd like pickup Mack before KJ. But the RBs between 15-25 seem to be in about the same tier.

There are some teams that I just want to stay away from entirely. The Lions are one of those teams.

I also want to disagree with this. But then I think of last year's Bills.

Why do I think Kenny G will get the catches and yardage while MJJ will catch the td's helping no-one LOL. I really want to stay away from Detroit altogether.

stafford at QB 25? i'll buy that in a heartbeat. worst fantasy season of his career last year and he finished QB19.

He could turn a hefty profit...and still not have much use in our game. 4300-4400 yards, 25-27 TD, 10-13 INT, and not much running...it isn't much different than guys like Rivers and Cousins. Given the desired attack and personnel there's very little - if any - upside to those numbers too.

Will he likely be a good QB2? Sure. Is that gonna matter for your team? I doubt it.

A) A smartly constructed team with dope RB's/WR's absolutely can play matchups with QB2 types and be very successful.

B) Rivers>>>Stafford>>>>>>>>>>>Cousins. Cousins is trash. Your tiers are wonky if you have those guys together. I trust Rivers more than Stafford until the Lions get rid of their garbage coach, but I'll still take Stafford in 2019 100 times out of 100 over Cousins.

I agree in regards to Stafford vs Cousins but I think that just shows you how large this non-exciting/high floor/low ceiling tier is. Everyone is going to have their preference but at the end of the day, they’ll all likely end up giving you the same stats.

Golladay at a low end WR2 price, with mid WR1 upside? Yes please. I have to believe low end WR2 is his floor.


Since you're asking, yes, That's a glass of the blue koolaid I have in front of me. I drink it every year.
