True

Also I feel like there is just a lot of great defensive play in the NFL right now. Even bad teams like Texans/Jags/Giants/49ers have good defenses and are difficult to score on.

I think defenses have finally adapted to the modern game, and way more talent is being infused into defensive lines than offensive ones.

Yeah I think you're right. Offense lines have been getting destroyed so far this year and it's really impacting QBs. I think the NFL is going to place a much greater emphasis on running soon. Lots of RB talent, d-lines are smaller (and faster), and it requires simpler technique from the o-line. Seems like a good set up for a counter movement back to a run heavy game.

washington post put out a pretty good article summarizing the sentiment you just illustrated

The NFL has an offensive line problem

lol I feel dumb dropping Foreman and then buying him back. But he's really the only high upside RB I saw left on waivers. I could see him becoming the starter in a few weeks.

I think I made might be done with waivers for a while. I think with Funchess, Dorsett, and Foreman I'll need to be patient because the situation and upside is there so it'll be a couple weeks before I can decide on another move.

eh as long as miller gets catches and 10-15 rushes im good... bill obrians up the gut spams arent getting either of them points. only way foreman will have true value is if lamar goes down hence the handcuff lol but that offense is a flaming dumpsterfire

I wanted Siemian...it was between him or Higgins, I needed WR more

Siemian has lots of weapons and a defense that will give him lots of playing time. He might blow up this year, I can see it.

yeah it makes no sense given his pedigree but got to go with what's actually happening on the field at some point. he looks good. I didn't really note Mariota's tough schedule to open the year when drafting.

on paper the titans opening schedule doesnt really look rough. the only really scary defense before the bye week is the seahawks and maybe the texans. i dont really think the raiders are a tough matchup, opening week is just weird.

overall the titans probably have the best schedule in the league. i love how they get @niners and vs rams for weeks 15 and 16, hopefully my team lasts that long because either murray or henry is gonna feast in those weeks.

Did you guys know the Chiefs have a RB named "Akeem Hunt"

Apparently it's causing problems in some fantasy leagues


Draft Akeem...try to work him into a trade as though he is Kareem...ultimate fantasy hustle

Holy shit that's great. The closest thing to that was when there was another Adrian Peterson who played for the Bears. Nearly identical names of the same team is pretty wild tho.
