IMO Doyle as a starting TE is pretty scary. Sure Doyle could have a solid year... but who knows how long Luck is out, and even if Luck was playing Doyle still doesnt have much upside compared to most of the other options in his tier (and if you are picking a TE this late he should have some upside). I would probably replace Doyle if there is someone else that seems viable (Ertz, Ebron, Brate, Fleener, Hooper... hell I would possibly take Charles Clay over Doyle)

Also, the Raiders have a very rough schedule this season (especially after their bye week). Carr should be able to start the season strong, but I would be worried about how things are going to go for him over the back half of the season.

Aside from that, this team looks excellent.

I always tend to draft TE's & defense pretty late, I wasn't ecstatic about the Doyle pick to begin with. I Just looked at the free agents and saw Hunter Henry there, the TE from the Chargers who had 8 TDs in his rookie year.

I see what you're saying about Carr. QBs were going fast in my draft. 7 QBs were taken in the first 6 rounds while I was building my team through RBs/WRs. On the flip side, Carr does have explosive weapons around him and a top notch offensive line to protect him, the only thing that worries me is when he goes up against KC & Denver.

Just dropped Doyle and added Henry btw.

Dude...

Hunter Henry is a beast, and as soon as Gates sets the record for TD receptions by a TE, he's going to more or less retire and it'll be the Hunter Henry show.

I'm shocked Henry wasn't drafted in your league. I took him in a lot of my leagues.

Noooooo.

If the Eagles only score 10 points, you're super ****ed.

I'm not even going to offer any suggestions on who to play, other than to say don't stack your RBs.

Really those three may just be a matter of preference.

the spread on the Eagles game is O/U 49 last i checked...Washington has a run defense that ranked 26th last year i believe..their pass defense > rush defense so i figure this game has the making for philly to run the ball a lot. especially if phillys defense is as good as predicted and they get ahead. but youre right it is a risk if they bomb. I might go gore since indy cant throw well with whatever backup they got so they might run it more.

The only problem with stacking the Eagles RBs is you are capping yourself on production.

Not saying it can't be done, because there were games last season both Freeman and Coleman had good games, but again, you're really maxing out your ceiling with that one. Every TD one RB scores, the other won't.

That being said, if those are your only three options, you may not really have a choice.

Gore vs LAR may not be a bad play, honestly...

in full ppr i would probably lean tate since hes probably the only person on the lions offense who will be able to get open vs the giants and thus should be targeted a ton

so in other words go with demaryius

Powell ranked #39 in RBs...not much hope of injury either because he doesn't see the ball much.

Having fun yet?

all the top corners were on Marvin Jones the second half of last year anways.


Emergence of Golladay as a legitimate threat is just gravy for Tate feasting in the slot

oh I guess that site doesn't include the decimal points...

22 rushing yards - 2.2 points
5 catches - 5 points
17 recieving yards - 1.7 points

8.9 points total


8.9 x 13 = 115.70 (#24 last season had 151 points)
