Smitty’s Take: During the Steelers-Packers Week 2 Preseason game, a few players stood out on both sides. On the Packers’ side of the football, DeShone Kizer was impressive (178 yards/2TDs), as was Brett Hundley (77 yards passing, 12 yards/1TD rushing). Even more impressive was Jake Kumerow, who pulled in 3/114/1TD. It’s easy to assume Kumerow will get more run, but he’s currently fighting to make the 53-man roster, not the starting gig. Baby steps first…. Jimmy Graham is a starter, though, and he pulled in a nice eight-yard TD pass against the Steelers, and he is setup to have a double-digit TD season in 2018. On the Steelers’ side of the football, the most impressive player was without a doubt James Washington, who pulled in 5/114/2TDs, and one of those TDs was a big-time grab where he muscle an under thrown ball away in the end zone. Washington is a big-time talent, and if he was on any other roster, we’d have him competing for our 2nd- or third-ranked rookie WR from this 2018 NFL Draft class. With both Antonio Brown and JuJu Smith-Schuster set to dominate the WR targets, and with LeVeon Bell scheduled for 70-80 receptions, it’s tough seeing a MONSTER rookie season out of Washington. An injury could change that, but for now, curb expectations a bit, at least in terms of consistency, but for sure expect a couple big games. The question is, will you happen to play the guy the games he goes off? Steelers’ back-up RB James Conner looked fantastic in this one, with 57 yards and 1TD. Jaylen Samuels also looked great in the back-up role for PIT, as he ran for 38 yards and 1TD. I fully expect a 2,000-total-yard season out of Bell in 2018, but that Steelers’ offensive line is so good, both handcuffs are a must, and owning both cuffs without Bell is one of those sneaky strategies we recommend for non-Bell owners. Stashing properly, like this, can win leagues.
Smitty’s Take: According to several reports, Seahawks rookie RB Rashaad Penny suffered a hand injury and broken finger in Monday’s practice. Consider him very, very questionable for Week 1. Enter Chris Carson. Stay away from Penny at his super-high 4th- to 5th-round ADP, and invest heavily in the undervalued Carson.
Smitty’s Take: Well, after the Derrius Guice (ACL) and Deon Cain (ACL) injuries, Giants/fantasy owners went through a bit of panic awaiting some updates on Saquon Barkley, who was seen icing his leg. We have good news. HC Pat Shurmur said that Barkley has a “mild strain” in his leg. This could limit his preseason work in the coming weeks, which is fine by us. We said it back in March and April, if not sooner… Saquon Barkley might be the first overall pick come this time next year (in all formats and scoring). He is that good. Get ready for the biggest rookie season since Adrian Peterson!
