i see
so TEs are considered receivers
makes sence
best luck of this season,hemphrey!

yeah we will see how goff starts he season
he could still become a hof qb, or he could just be another #1 pick who went on to meh
/has anyone been following the eagles this preseason?, how is wentz doing?

so what are your takes coming out of the preseason
a lot of teams lost key players to injury
most notably the ravens and dolphins
/heard kaep will be in the booth this season
will carr lead the silver and black to the promise land?
over/under: can cleveland turn it up and post up four wins (was going to go with five but lets not push it?)
what week will we see trubinski play in chicago?

man, i cant wait for football!

TE is its own position but you dont get points for blocks, so the best fantasy TE's are the ones who put up a lot of receiving stats.
When antonio gates was in his prime (pre-Gronk era) you had such an advantage at the TE position if he was on your team. Like he put up twice the points of an average TE during that time, except for maybe tony gonzalez.

I'd say as long as goff doesnt become fat and lazy, he'll be a better #1 pick than jamarcus russell, although even if he works hard there's a chance he could become another tim couch. Just based off last year it's hard to imagine him becoming an elite QB, but maybe he was pressed into action too early on a bad offense...

The dolphins and ravens had QB injuries but flacco will probably start week 1 after sitting out the preseason with a back injury, because i cant imagine they would start ryan mallett in a meaningful game.
Is kaepernick much of a talker? Cant imagine any network would give him a shot broadcasting games, what with the controversy that follows him.

Conventional wisdom says trubisky sits out the 1st four games, against pretty good teams, so as to preserve his confidence. But if glennon looks a hot mess early on, which is very possible, then i dont see how fox has a choice but to turn to someone else, and the only other qb they have now is the butt fumbler. Well, connor shaw, but people say he's strictly practice squad material.

Well, nfl cut down day came and went. Did your team cut anyone you thought had a promising future?
Bears, despite need at WR, cut Victor cruz and tanner gentry. Cruz wasnt that surprising, it's been a few years since he was good; tore his patellar tendon and then his calf and took almost 2 years to come back and hasnt been the same since.
Tanner gentry is an undrafted guy who set receiving records at some small college; supposedly he had good size and speed and showed good chemistry with trubisky, maybe he'll be on the bears practice squad if he clears waivers.
I said screw it and had the system do an auto-draft for me in one of my leagues, and im actually not too upset once i got a good look at my team. Probably going to change a couple of my bench players through the waiver wire but altogether this lineup is something i can work with, and probably not that much worse than if i had drafted myself, maybe even better if things shake out right...

What are you thinking Toker, 19-0 this year? Or 18-1? With the one loss coming in ... week 17?
oh not going to make bold predictions, along the lines of what you are saying, in some post I either can't find or one that got deleted I think I said similar stuff, but I do think if we can make the most of what we have, we are looking at a good season indeed. I don't think Brady or Edelman or a couple others are what will make the team great again or otherwise, it will be a team effort and we seem to be good at that so I like our chances, so thanks for caring!

Well, id disagree with you on one point: I think the Pats' greatness does depend on brady. He can lose another 1 or 2 weapons on offense but still be fine. Garappolo is maybe the best backup QB in the league but i think it's a stretch to think he'll perform like brady, especially come playoff time.

The Pats are the only team favored in all 16 of their games, and the Jets are the only one not favored in any of their games. When you have the actively tanking jets and bills in your division, those are 4 easy wins there (like 2nd stringers in the 4th qtr easy). That has to be an advantage when the pats face the tougher games in their schedule, at Steelers, hosting Saints. And dont get me started on Miami and Cutler; I think Cutler will average 2-3 ints in his games against NE...

Wow...Alex Smith looked damn near perfect last night. Can't believe that was the same dink and dunker I'm used to seeing. I mean, he actually threw some deep balls for a change! Nice job, KC!

Spanked the Pats on their home turf...never would have thought KC could have gotten away with such a lopsided victory.

HB.

Damn.the Bears very well could have won.I'm torn between cause ATL is my second team and I know they got a better shot than the Bears so when they looked like they were gonna win i was conflicted.Anyway good game.Glennon sucks though.Cohen is awesome.lots of potential for the Bears.I was pleasantly surprised.I thought the packers,seahawks game was gonna be better but I was kinda wrong.packers played pretty good today as much as I hate to admit it.seahawks played pretty good too

Week 1 so far has had some surprising results but it's too early to make any definite conclusions about how good or bad any team is.

Maybe the chiefs just match up well against the patriots. They laid a whooping on the pats back in 2014, the last time they played. Of course, the patriots only went on to win the superbowl later that season. Also, the last 3 times they lost their season opener, the patriots won the superbowl. So maybe there is such a thing as a 'good loss'.

Of bigger concern is the patriots defense giving up 40+ pts and 500+ yards, both highs during the belichick era. This was the same unit that led the league in scoring defense last year.
Gilmore doesnt look like he's worth the big contract the patriots gave him, and theyre lucky that hightower only has a knee sprain (missing a week or two at most) instead of a season ending injury. The patriots front 7 didnt look great with him, and looked soft without him.

If there are any chiefs fans here, does anyone think that alex smith will continue to throw it downfield the rest of the season? I know he has as many 300yd passing games in his career as brees has in one season, but maybe he's feeling the urgency to make the offense more potent with a QB of the future watching from the sideline.
I only ask this because i need a 2nd qb in one of my leagues, was wondering if i should pick him up...

Bears had a chance to win it at the end, and may have covered the spread against the almost superbowl winners. I was honestly expecting them to lose by 20, so maybe there's hope.

Rams looked good on offense and dominant on defense, maybe Poprocks has found his new team to root for. It came against the Luck-less Colts though, so we'll have to see what they look like against teams with real qb's.

Hawks got robbed of a pick six with a bogus block in the back call, and also their #2 CB being ejected for a phantom punch. Without those calls going against them they probably, or might have won.
Still, their offensive line looked terrible, even worse than it has the past few years.
