    Smity,

    Just had my Rookie Dynasty League Draft yesterday:

    From the 4th overall slot:

    Corey Coleman
    Leonte Carroo
    Kenieth Dixon
    DeVandre Washignton (Oak) RB
    Tajea Sharpe
    Charone Peake
    Daniel Braverman
    Ben Braunecker

    your thoughts on any of the above?

    We can taxi up to 25 players for max of (2 years)

    I’m banking on the future here, but love K. Dixon a ton like you do

      Wow, great crew you got there. Coleman is kinda of my favorite WR from this class, too. I go back and forth ranking him as the top WR from this class and the 2nd/3rd… all three are close, but he kinda feels more low risk with still near as much upside as Treadwell and Doctson.

    Smitty,

    Please tell me your thoughts on Alex Collins!

    I forgot to mention I also snagged him in the middle round of 6th!

    Seattle is lucky to have him, overall Rawls is the guy, but something tells me Alex Collins stays heatlhy longer than all Seattle Runners this, and with his Lynch-like comparison, can take a hit with the Tuff Div they’re in, plus hitting the Hamner Runs from the 5 yard line and in.

    Might be the guy nobody is talking about because of Nortre Dame CJ prosise playing the 3rd down back. My thought is CJ gets injured far too often, and won’t be as big as of factor for Seattle, my 2 cents.

      Check out my rookie write up on him here below.. I like him. Good talent, reminds me of the kinda back that could thrive if given carries. I liked him more than Procise for a while. Info:

      13-14. Cj Prosise (RB) SEA / Alex Collins (RB) SEA

      Both backs won’t be given an easy path to the lineup, as Thomas Rawls will get his shot, and he looked impressive last year. He did get hurt, so he has to prove he can stay healthy in 2016. If he does, it’s his job to lose. UPDATE: With CJ Prosise taking wide receiver reps in practice as of 5/9/16, and with all the recent coach praise, he looks like the sleeper to own in this backfield.
