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.

    I recently finished up a #MFL10 draft that I put together with some of my followers on Twitter, a practice that Tom Brolley, Matt Camp, and I will be continuing throughout the summer with our friends at MyFantasyLeague. It’s a great way to scratch your fantasy itch early, and to shake off some rust and […]

  • The LeSean McCoy Trade, RB Declines, and Chip Kelly March 4, 2015
    If you’re a 24/7/365 football nut, chances are you’ve already digested just about all you can about yesterday’s blockbuster LeSean McCoy/Kiko Alonso trade between the Eagles and Bills. I’ve gone on record on Twitter saying I don’t like the deal for Buffalo – McCoy is an eight-figure back coming off a down year, still a […]
