Week 12 Views From the Couch

 

by Jim Coventry, Guest Blogger 

Here are my 2-3 quick hit thoughts from each of the weekends games, as I watched from the sofa: 

Green Bay/Detroit:  

How does Roy Williams come up so small playing in a Mike Martz offense? He is a guy that should be ‘money’ two of every three weeks. 

Calvin Johnson looks like a typical rookie WR with a great skill-set. I agree with the consensus that he will be a superstar, but it will likely be in his third year, though he’ll be a solid #2 next year. 

I don’t think Ryan Grant is any better than DeShaun Wynn, but Wynn while Wynn was busy getting hurt, Grant was pouncing on the opportunity of running through the huge holes of a pass-happy offense. 

Dallas/NY Jets: 

In 2006, Jerricho Cotchery had two or three freak plays that resulted in long TDs. Those padded his overall numbers and value going into drafts this year. He looks like just a guy, maybe a lower end #2 on his better days.

  • The Prince Connection: Rodgers and Nelson July 7, 2014
    If you follow along over at my Twitter account @FG_Dolan (shameless plug), you’ve probably noticed my undying love for Jordy Nelson, and the fact that I’d happily welcome him onto any of my fantasy teams this year. First of all, he’s madly productive as is: he hauled in 85/1314/8 last year and averaged 16.5 FPG in a PPR league. That was good enough to rank h […]

  • 12-Team PPR Mock Auction Review, Strategy, and Lessons Learned June 5, 2014
    On somewhat of a whim, I decided to do some mocking on Wednesday night, but instead of trying to compare ADP numbers and working out the best spots to pick from, my idea was to run an auction. We ended up getting a 12-team PPR mock auction with a $200 cap done in a few hours, although with the informal atmosphere, a handful of teams ended up going on autodra […]
