  1. Amari Cooper

    Buy Low, lol. I'm not sure if he's hurt, but I would take him top 5 moving forward at WR if I was building a team (taking age/contract). One of the best at maintaining speed with his breaks, which cause CBs to commit so hard, opening them up for big plays with double moves. For drafting purposes, Calvin Ridley reminds me a TON of Cooper.

    I think it's good to see people coming in and talking, because Jets forums were pretty hopeless earlier this season. When most of the news is negative, I think people shy away from reading and responding anyway. I think next week is the litmus test, not only for the team, but the fan base. Jets win, and I think interest is going to spark big time. All those people that stayed away to avoid negative points will more than likely make up for lost time. Jets lose, and we'll be back to the off-season level of "Well, we won 3 games for no reason vs. We root for the jersey" arguments that can't be proven either way.
  3. JetNation FanDuel League; Week 5

    Yeah, I used to be into DFS really hard until about Week 3 of last season. The pro level players that play invest such an insane amount of time into this, that it's ridiculous. People running scripts to make last minute changes, vegas odds analysis, weather reports including cross wind or head wind analysis, one on one match ups, team match ups, etc. It's actually ridiculous, and unless you can spend devoted time towards it each day, it's impossible to keep up. When I was playing baseball, there was so much information out there from umpire tendencies to match ups and fastball/slider strengths, streaks, etc that I didn't know where else to research to stand out. I remember looking up atmospheric pressure to see if there was a correlation for home runs, just because the data was too much to digest, so a lot of people ended up with the same sleepers. I'm not sure why people don't return. I definitely enjoy playing.
  4. JetNation FanDuel League; Week 5

    I really appreciate playing with you guys and would love to participate every week. This was probably my worst fantasy week across the board for a lot of things. I bought hard on Devante Parker across the board, which doomed all of my teams with injury. Gurley not playing well also torpedoed my team. Other failures, I could understand risk/reward, but those two guys were locks for me and it backfired, lol.
  5. Game Balls vs Cleveland?

    It has to be Hue Jackson and Kizer. In baseball, there is a stat for pitchers called FIP (and xFIP) which tries to assign a value to a pitcher for the things he has in his control. This game was a win for the Jets because the other team constantly screwed up. Two turnovers in the red zone for Kizer, going for it on 4th down, when a FG ties the game, etc. If we have to pick the Jets, I'll say Morton. The coach's film isn't out, but I loved some of the set up stuff for routes. McCown played horrible for most of the day, and we didn't have a running game, so I'm not giving it to anyone on offense.
  6. JetNation FanDuel League; Week 5

    I joined early this week, hopefully goes through.
  7. JetNation FanDuel League; Week 4

    Definitely an exciting end this week. Only reason I won was because Wilson threw a 30 yard TD in the final minute on a 4th and 3 or something, while being up about 30 points. Yay!!
  8. Game Observations (JAX)

    It's perplexing that he hasn't taken off, because they gave him everything to be a successful QB. Although, Robinson is injured this year, he has Robinson, Hurns, Lee with Yeldon/Ivory, an OK TE. He had the opportunity to be a decent QB but he just hasn't progressed at all. I was surprised because I was expecting him to be caught down the line but no one did. He always looked fast on tape, but seemed to have limited top end speed. There were a few highlights in college where he was caught from behind. However, he has great agility and make guys miss really well. While it's not a sexy pick like Alvin Kamara, I think it could really help the team down the road.
  9. Game Observations (JAX)

    The Lee drop was huge because if he catches that, they are in FG range with a first down. That was the play that changed the game back in the Jets favor. McCown played a very safe game, and I'm going to look at the tapes to see what kind of formations were the Jags using in this game. Most defenses have been using 3 wide or 4 wide lines against us, leaving the middle of the field open, and we saw 3 huge runs. I would like to see if this affected a change. Once the Rbs were slowed down, McCown was McCown again. He doesn't do much by himself to win games and it would behoove the Jets to give Petty a shot, which they won't because they are winning right now. Bortles sucks. Caldwell, after rejecting the Jets, went to the Jags and did a really good job of building up that team. Take out the QB, and they are actually very talented. Unfortunately, they screwed up big time on Bortles. Remember, they picked him ahead of Carr/Bridgewater/Garrapolo. It's a horrendous draft move, one that may cost him his job down the line. Bortles checks all the boxes in his ability, but he can't read defenses, and his delivery is extremely slow. I see a bit of Bortles in Josh Allen. McGuire is a nice find. He dropped a bit because his 40 wasn't quite as fast as expected, but he outran the defense yesterday.
  10. How does Brady get so much time?

    It's their system. It's why they have guys like Welker/Amendola/Edleman/White, because those quick passes cause LBs to pause on their rush. If they blitz, the quick pass will beat you because he's extremely accurate and has great timing. You rush 3, he will sit in the pocket all day and pick people apart. It's all about timing with them, because it's almost impossible to disguise defenses. For example, if a defense has a slot corner blitz, with a LB or safety covering, they have good enough timing to get the ball to the receiver before the replacement guy can cover, and then make people miss in the open field.
  11. Wasn't this reported a month or so ago? I don't see the point of staying in school because right now (unless he falls apart down the stretch- in that case, who cares?) he's a top 5 pick even with an average year. He goes back and then he HAS to be a top tier QB because they aren't going to be as forgiving after an average year followed by a slightly above average year. For some perspective, following Hackenberg's sophomore year, he was still projected as a high first round pick, I think a couple of places had him No. 1 overall. Then he followed up his below average sophomore year with an average junior year and his stock took a nosedive.
  12. Ofcourse, we miss the field goal. Offense definitely looks better, and I think it has a decent amount to do with ASJ being back.
  13. JetNation FanDuel League; Week 4

    Ah I see, interesting to see some of the picks week after week.
  14. Big Game Tonight ...

    I think he could be in consideration, but it's so impossible to tell with that offense. I think Falk is in the second round range right now, but I think he drops during draft time, unless he goes nuts at the combine. I actually disagree with the line of scrimmage authority. Almost all of these offenses run on a system where they run a consolidated set number of plays from formations. It's the QB's job to run to the line, and then read the defense, usually one particular player and change the play. It's based more on blocking numbers than reading the defense. For example, if the right safety moves up towards the line, the offense has an advantage down the field in numbers and it's usually audibles to a deep pass play. I think this was part of the issue with Petty because he was limited in his pre-snap reads because he didn't have to read the defense, just particular targets on every play. So for an RPO, it might be a LB being in a certain spot, and then changing the play. So even with the audibles, they usually aren't reading the field. Darnold looks off this year. I don't know if it's the mechanical changes, but something seems off. I didn't mind the interception because that's an anticipation throw, since he threw that before his guy made the break. The CB just made a great read on it. The near interception in the end zone bothers me more because that was a terrible throw, completely wrong throw. He threw it like he expected a slant instead of a back shoulder pass.
