Greetings! Many of you were no doubt overwrought about my possible whereabouts this past week. Yes, slaying Kings in Canada can be quite dangerous, especially when considering the monstrous killer whales, man-flesh desiring grizzly bears, seals that will bite your dong off when you’re urinating off the bow of the boat, bald eagles that would like nothing more than to peck out your eyeballs, and last but not least, Molson Ice! Canadian beer is like moonshine! If you follow me on Twitter, it’s safe to say you witnessed some of my slayings on display, and much unlike my “other” pics, the fish were quite sizable. You’ve got to be realistic about these things. Anyway, I’m back and ready to rock out super hard. Yeah… cool… anyway… Let’s get to a few of my thoughts on the wide receiver position. Attempting to read through Matthew Berry’s Love/Hate post has inspired me to keep this post short and sweet. Good Gods.

I am Tehol Beddict and this is Disgrace/Delight! Take Heed!

Players that will Delight

Julio Jones  Julio was a mole’s pecker away from 1,600 yards last season, and that’s with missing one game after being overly fatigued from absolutely roasting and embarrassing the CardinalsPatrick Peterson. On average, Jones is the 5th wideout taken in this year, but in my shizz, he’s number one ya’ll! Am I crazy? Oh ho-ho! I just might be, but I expect Jones to put up 12 touchdowns, minimum, this season, all while piling up similar catch and yardage numbers to last season. Roddy White should be healthy and even if not, I expect Hester and Hankerson to get the job done in his absence. I also like the improved TE group, with Moeaki and Jacob Tamme… okay, I don’t LOVE it, but hey, it’s an improvement! Seriously though, a crash test dummy on a scooter segway could probably cause more damage than last year’s group.

Devin Funchess  Is there any worse possible injury (other than to a star quarterback) than the Carolina Panthers losing their star second-year receiver? Think about it… without Benjamin, the Panthers passing attack is disgracefully disgusting, with Cotchery (gulp), pencilled in as the number one wideout. This is where Funchess comes in. From everything I’ve seen on tape, Funchess looks to be a legit weapon and he should be rising up fantasy draft boards at warp speed. Is he going to replicate what Benjamin did last season? Don’t be ridiculous! But WHO else is going to get the ball other than Greg Olsen? Pencil in Funchess for 800 yards and 8 TDs. We are all witnesses.

Brandon Coleman – you know you got body-ody-ody, Where you get your huge body-ody-ody, I just wanna draft your freak body-ody-ody, I just wanna put you on my rosterOoooooh, you’re makin my thong drip, B-dog! Coleman should be playing in most Saints’ 3 WR sets, and at 6’6″ and 225 lbs, he just may overtake Colston as the every down man. You were wondering who was going to replace some of Jimmy Graham’s production? You thought it was going to be Josh Hill? You were researching the Saints roster, but got bored and went to your fave porn site? You were thinking about purchasing the domain name “Razzballs.com” and creating the greatest porn site ever? Too late, I already did. But regarding Coleman, I believe he’ll put up possible WR3 numbers on your team with upside for more. Keep an eye on him in the mid to late rounds as we witness how he progresses in these next few preseason games.

Terrance Williams  With no DeMarco Murray there, the Cowboys should be throwing more this season. I’d like to think so anyway, and the largest beneficiary of that would be T-Will, who became Romo’s go-to on broken plays. Maybe they’ll actually run some plays for this talented speedster, as he’s facing single coverage much of the time due to the opposition focusing on putting the clamps on Dez Bryant. Just a thought.

 

Players that will Disgrace 

Kenny Stills – Kenny Stills specializes in going deeper than a Mastiff into a Rat terrier… Ryan Tannehill is the worst deep throwing quarterback that I’ve EVER witnessed. He’s young enough to have improved, but I’ll believe it when I see it. Not touching Stills.

Eric Decker/Brandon Marshall  I was semi-intrigued with Geno under center, but with Harvard in there, I won’t be going near either of these vets. Seriously, I’d rather tag Khloe Kardashian, before her vag rejuvenation, butt implants, lipo, AND penicillin, than draft Eric Decker. He’s ranked WAY too high.

Breshad Perriman  I loved the pick during the draft and still feel okay about it, but dude simply isn’t ready. Thus far he’s done nothing in camp but drop balls and hurt his knee. We also can’t ignore the fact this guy has the worst hairline I’ve ever witnessed. I apologize, but I must question your intelligence if you’re actually walking around like that. Totally unacceptable.

Seahawks Wideouts: Don’t. Just don’t.

 

Thank you for joining me for another rankings edition of Disgrace/Delight. As per usual, I very much look forward to our dialogue in the comment section below. After next week’s RB’s and QB’s posts, we will be all caught up and ready for our drafts. No matter what, do NOT forget to sign up for Razzball RCL leagues to compete for awesome prizes and possibly defeat me in combat. Anything is possible but I’m on mission from the Elder Gods this season. My goal: to win EVERY single league I enter. Boom, and it’s on like Donkey Kong. Come see me!

    I’m with you on Julio except for the fact that you are neglecting his injury history. How much worse is his chance to play all 16 games relative to the likes of Brown, Dez, Demaryius? Julio’s only averaged 12 games started per year.

    • Jensen says:
      (link)

      @RotoLance: 1) Julio just played 15 games coming off surgery. Dude is healthy.
      2) Excluding his 2014 season he has played 13, 15, and 15 games. So that 12 game average is misleading.
      3) Dez has averaged 12.2 games started over his career. See how one season can skew stats?

      • RotoLance

        RotoLance says:
        (link)

        @Jensen: I don’t think it skews anything. Excluding data is what skews things. I’m not sure I recall exactly what Dez’s history is but doesn’t Julio’s date all the way back to college?

        Good points on Dez though. I knew he had issues I just didn’t know that they were on the same levels as Julio’s.

        Oh actually, check that, I just looked. Not so good points. What’s skewing data against Dez is Games started vs games played. Dez only started 2 games his rookie year but played in 12 and I think that’s because he was slower to develop than Julio. Not an injury thing.

        I’m also aware that Demaryius had a rough time early in his pro career with the injury bug. Torn achilles (or maybe it was an ACL?).

        • Jensen says:
          (link)

          @RotoLance: Kids, this is what happens when you try to prove a point. You only see what you want to see. Good catch on the games played.

          • RotoLance

            RotoLance says:
            (link)

            @Jensen: Yeah, this is the best point of all. I may be guilty of that too, in a sense. That’s why I tried to point out, yeah Demaryius has been injured before too. And that’s why I posed the question to Tehol in the first place.

            So the thing about games started vs games played is for Julio the difference is only one. He played in game in his career in which he didn’t start and I suspect he didn’t start but played because of a minor injury, but that was just a guess. So that’s why I used games started. For Dez games started didn’t seem to tell the tale with his injury history because he’s failed to start in games over his career for performance reasons as well, I believe. Maybe for disciplinary reasons as well?

            • Tehol Beddict says:
              (link)

              @RotoLance: Dez has been relatively healthy other than being banged up a few times. He is an absolute hog and with Murray being gone, Dez may have his best season yet, which would not surprise me whatsoever.

              I just believe Julio to be superior to every other receiver in the NFL, talent wise. I mean, the top 5 are all monsters so its basically a coin flip but I’m just feeling a Julio explosion

    • Tehol Beddict says:
      (link)

      @RotoLance: well, he missed a good portion of season few years ago so that’s mainly responsible. but when I see this guy on the field, he’s the best all around wideout in NFL in my opinion and TD’s have to come up. I really feel like this is his year

  2. Brady's Big Balls says:
    (link)

    I can keep two of these four – suggestions?

    Demaryus Thomas, Shady McCoy, Lamar Miller, Alshon Jeffrey

    • Greyismyhero says:
      (link)

      @Brady’s Big Balls:

      I would go Thomas/Jeffrey, F that racist coward McCoy and Miller is just an avg RB IMO, Not to mention RB’s are a dime a dozen with injuries etc….Peace

    Had a 10-team standard score auction yesterday. What do you think?

    Panda Man
    QB Eli Manning 2
    RB C.J. Anderson 45
    RB Jeremy Hill 38
    WR Demaryius Thomas 42
    WR Dez Bryant 43
    TE Delanie Walker 1
    FLEX Jarvis Landry 4
    D/ST Rams D/ST 1
    K Stephen Gostkowski 1
    BE C.J. Spiller 2
    BE Ameer Abdullah 3
    BE Nelson Agholor 2
    BE LeGarrette Blount 2
    BE Allen Robinson 2
    BE Martavis Bryant 3

      @Ron Darling: dude, i love it. Im actually very high on Eli right now. ur receivers and running backs are filthy. pretty stacked man, even for a 10 team. Kudos

  4. fields says:
    (link)

    You and Jay seem to disagree on AJ Green. You have him as WR 7 (beginning-middle of 2nd round) and he has him as WR 10 (end of 2nd, beginning 3rd). Why do you like AJ Green more than him this year?

    Drafting at 6 in a standard scoring league, if you take a RB first round, are you compelled to take a WR in the 2nd? Which RBs are spicy enough that you would open your draft with RB-RB for them? (this is a no flex league, 2 RB, 3 WR)

    • Tehol Beddict says:
      (link)

      @fields: I haven’t discussed my rankings on receivers with Jay thus far but A.J. Green, talent wise, is one of the 5 best wideouts in the league. With Jones back, he should find more single coverage. he’s a superstar and getting at the top of the 3rd is an absolute steal and probably not possible.

      I haven’t been going RB RB the past couple years but I suppose if it felt right I would do so. If you could get, say, a Hill with the 2nd pick you’d be loaded. or even a DeMarco Murray as he could drop a bit. probably not many others. i like to get a top notch wideout or Gronk in that spot

      • David says:
        (link)

        @Tehol Beddict: Speaking of AJ Green would you deal him and L. Murray for Dem. Thomas and Dav. Adams? All would play in the flex spot

        • Tehol Beddict says:
          (link)

          @David: oooohweeeee, thats a tough one. as you’ll see in my post today, I have latavius extremely high so I’d probably have to say no, but thats a solid deal as I really like Adams

    finally read 2.5 months worth of posts in a couple weeks while still running a billion baseballs, and hockey is looming around the corner too.

    14 team dynasty with active rosters of 18. i have to cut at least 2, 3-4 if i want to draft 1 or 2 rookies.
    Somewhat weird scoring settings. super values QB’s and good kickers, somewhat overvalues good team D’s.
    20 yds per pt for throwing, 6 pt TD’s, -2 for picks, 15 yards per rushing and receiving pt, only 5 for rushing/receiving TD’s. -2 for fumbles lost, 25 yards per return yard.
    with kickers 3 for FG’s under 30, 30-39 worth 4, 40-49 worth 5, over 49 worth 6, -4 for under 20 yds missed, -3 for 29-20 yds missed, -2 for 39-30 yds missed, -1 for 49-40 yds missed.

    roster = QB, 2 RB, 2 WR, 1 TE, 1 regular flex, 1 super flex, K, D, 8 BN.
    i have
    QB foles/palmer/hoyer/sanchize (traded for sanchize last year, and bradford won’t stay healthy)
    RB – AP, Hyde, Ellington, mason, a.williams, michael, bradshaw (no team yet?)
    WR dez, green, cooks, t.smith,c.johnson (MIN), stills
    TE Green Julius
    K barth (so good here, added right when DEN did last year, worked out pretty good)
    D MIA (started last year with both CAR and KC, dropped both when they were awful, MIA ended up better anyway)
    Even after trading G.Tate for Sanchize last year i still have ridiculous WR depth. Till nearly end of year this team was a top 3 team (even though some teams have 2 top 6 QB’s, but my RB/WR mostly crushed them). Basic rankings say to drop bradshaw and michael just to make a legal roster. This was without AP playing. I got lowball offers of shitty QB’s to get him last year.
    Here’s available players (ranked by this year rankings). I’ll be picking 9th and either 20th or 23rd (finding out whether or not it’s a snake). I’d have to assume this ranking should be adjusted somewhat both since it’s dynasty, and QB valued so much.
    Gordon, Randle, Gurley, Cooper, Yeldon, Abdullah, Agholor, Coleman (RB), Freeman, Cobb (RB), Perriman, Duke Johnson, T.Williams, D.Johnson (ARI), D.parker, Royal, Hill, Winston, Latimer, M.Jones, Polk, Britt, White, Huff, Green-Beckham, Funchess, Ajayi, Mariota.
    If i throw out having any real use for T.Williams (unless Dez injury), Royal, M.Jones, Britt i’m down to 24 guys, so i’d be able to get 2 of that list. Clearly Gurley would be best add for somebody who owns Mason, but not likely either. Hill should probably be moved up i would think (as i have no backup TE) and all WR’s down, all QB’s up, but how much? Due to return yards A.Roberts and Lockett (except ourlads says lockett isn’t doing returns) have value too.

    1. drop which 2-4 guys?
    2. how much should i move up the 2 QB’s and TE’s (hill/maxx williams/, and how much lower should WR’s be due to my depth there? or any other moves up or down in that ranking above.

    • Tehol Beddict says:
      (link)

      @Mike Hunt’s Honorable Discharge: Lockett CERTAINLY is doing returns. not sure what they’re talking about. I live here, big homey, so i know it to be true. Feel free to certainly drop Bradshaw. stacked at wideout no moves necessary there. I would attempt to get one of those top 2 rookie Qb’s if i were you as I dont LOVE any of yours longterm although Palmer should be solid this season. and possibly a running back. Gurley would be ideal but will probably go first. try to make play for Gordon or maybe snag abdullah but I’m not sold on the others as of yet. If you have Julius thomas you set there. drop sanchize and bradshaw ASAP

      @TarmanGotHim: yep. i still prefer Watkins if Tyrod gets that job. royal is solid bonus

  8. Pedro says:

    I’m in a 3 or 4 player (your choice and receive draft pick) keeper league. We are allowed to keep players for up to 3 years. One of the owners has to get rid of AJ Green before the start of the season.

    I have Cobb and have only had him one year. Would you attempt to trade Cobb for AJ Green and get him to throw a draft pick in. Player’s values are typically lowered in our league once they reach 3 Years of being Kept. He also has a plethora of keepers and needs to get rid of someone.

    Also, as an after thought…I have Lacy, Antonio Brown and Cobb…Would you keep Brees too? or let him go and take the 4th round draft pick? (12 team league)

    Thanks.

    • Tehol Beddict says:
      (link)

      @Pedro: hmmm, tough call. Cobb should be in line for career year in catches with Jordy down as he becomes focal point of passing game. tough to say. I prefer Green big body for red zone but i might hold Cobb for now. Brees is solid for 4th round pick I suppose depending on who else you think will be there. i think he has big year tho

      • Pedro says:
        (link)

        Thanks..I would be looking for a RB in the 4th…Available RBs will probably be Randle, Spiller, Ellington, Hyde, L. Murray,….I don’t know if any of those guys would be better than Brees.

        Also. I have Foster. With the news coming out today that he might return at the end of the September, would he potentially be a better keeper than Brees?

        • Gio says:
          (link)

          @Pedro:

          I am in a similar dilemma. Half PPR and I have to choose a keeper between Cobb and Green, no terms or rounds involved. With the Nelson injury I am leaning Cobb as Green hurt me last year and I am still bitter. Both players have missed time due to injury in recent years so I guess my decision is hinging on Rodgers vs Dalton and that is why I am leaning Cobb.

          Would you guys agree?

          • Tehol Beddict says:
            (link)

            @Gio: i agree with that. Cobb should receive career highs in every category if healthy, other than maybe TD’s as he caught an abnormal amount last season for small guy, but shizzzzzz you never know, he might surpass those as well as he’s the true number 1 option

    Keeper question…non-ppr, ODB or Demarco? Leaning Odell but Demarco’s potential in chip’s offense is intriguing.

      @Jigboy22: for a keeper league got to go Beckham dog
