  • If Ingram leaves then I love this trade. With the running back depth a lot stronger than years past, Gurleys value is definitely plummeting.
  • *playing it safe IMO. Not too bad Smitty.

    Team:

    QB: Deshaun Watson (Tom Brady)
    RB1: Saquon Barkley
    RB2: Alvin Kamara
    Flex: LeVeon Bell

    No good WRs aside from Marvin Jones... I have Phillip Lindsay and 1st Round Pick to get a WR1. I love this kind of project for the off-season.

  • Sweet - I also like John Brown to become a solid starter for you.

    man I don't see why you had to give Gurley and a 2nd for Kamara and John Brown and a 4th. Brown is a total throw in, and with Jackson at QB his production dropped off a cliff, I own him in places and he had zero games of 3 or more catches after the QB change... Zero useful games after the bye

    This is an honest question - Gurley, has his value really dropped below Kamara?

    Not yet, but it will. I think he could have done the trade without the picks right now, but Kamara will be higher ranked than Gurley by July.

    Nope he knows Gurley is losing value... this will be a steal in hindsight 👍

    I love that you are 100% on board and have already made a move, putting your money where your mouth is!

    something to consider here is that C J Anderson wasn't in the picture until very late in the season ... so a 2019 split workload is a possibility, keeping both backs reasonably fresh, and it could be a Freeman/Coleman type situation, where both could see 900-1200 yds and 10-12 TD's, no?

    Maybe but CJ doesn’t worry me as much as Gurley is just concerning. Meaning, any backup would be in the same boat.. CJ is solid but not the threat. The threat is injury and hitting that wall, but really I think he won’t hold up. Am I a year early? Maybe, we shall see..

  • They aren’t paying Gurley the most money for a RB in the league to have him split carries. I can guarantee that.

    I agree. And, in my video I state that CJ Anderson isn't even really part of my argument AT ALL. It has everything to do with the fact that: 1) He doesn't look right, 2) He says he's not hurt, 3) The team isn't using him right, even if they do plan to run him more which I agree they will try to do, 4) He has a history of knee issues even if far removed... and that's relevant because he knee looks hurt even if he says he's relatively healthy.

    @HellAtlantic it has more to do with all that adding up to a RB that has been abused over 4 years not staying healthy in 2019.

  • I can get on board with that. I was just playing devil’s advocate. If you’re right you definitely deserve props for getting in front of this earlier than I’ve seen anywhere. You definitely nailed your Fournette bust 2018 call so you’re on to something.
