Welcome back to the TSF Round Table where the guys at Truth Serum Football are joined by our very special guest Brandon Peebler of The Peebcast! The offseason is continuing to drag on and as always we're here to answer some questions. Have a question you want us to answer at next week’s Round Table discussion? Drop it in a comment below.
- How many wins do you see the 2021 Atlanta Falcons getting?
Zach: Atlanta has plenty of weaknesses but I think they’ll get back on track a bit with their high octane offense and get 7 wins.
Travis: Think I have the Atlanta Falcons for about six wins this year. I feel like they’re offense can carry them to some wins some of their games, but I feel like their defense is really gonna let them slide and they’re not gonna really have enough wins this year to be a playoff contender.
Jason: I think the Atlanta Falcons will have 4 wins in 2021. A declining Matt Ryan, potentially no Julio, a non-existent run game, and a suspect defense at best. I think 4 wins is generous to say the least.
Brandon: I think Atlanta will go 6-11 this year. The NFC is really tough and the AFC teams they play won’t make it easy on them either.
- PPR Redraft, Brandon Aiyuk or Deebo Samuel?
Zach: I love both of them but I gotta go with Deebo. His versatility and big play ability make him a perfect breakout candidate and perfect for Shanahan’s offense.
Travis: While I think they will be a tremendous value this year in re-draft. Samuel could provide the bigger return on investment. A lot of people will be staying away from the Deebo because of his foot injury from last year. I however fully expect him to bounce back this year. But I absolutely do love Aiyuk as well. I do feel like he didn’t really do enough to really stand out last year and that people really will overlook him because of that. Seems to me like I’m going to have a lot of shares of Aiyuk in re-draft.
Jason: Deebo and it’s not even close.
Brandon: I would say Aiyuk. As much as I love Deebo, Aiyuk has been much more of an explosive player
- What are your thoughts on Joe Mixon’s fantasy stock this year?
Zach: He’s a RB2 but definitely has RB1 upside. He’ll have more work than he can handle and should get an uptick in targets with Gio in Tampa.
Travis: Where you’re drafting him in re-draft you will most likely getting him as your RB 2 on your team. He could easily return top-five running back upside for 2021. The biggest worry has always been injuries and I do not like the fact that they did not improve their offense of line. I feel like the receivers could take enough over the top to allow him some lines to run through. I’m really excited for his outlook in 2021.
Jason: I think Joe Mixon’s fantasy stock takes a huge hit this year. I’ve never been super high on him going into drafts every year and this year is no exception. I think he is a mid level RB2 at best & always has the chance to miss time due to injury.
Brandon: Joe Mixon as a player is a solid player but he will be playing some really tough defenses in his own division in the Browns and Ravens. The Steelers will not be a slouch either. I see him more as an RB 2 in 2021.
- Rank these three rookie QBs for dynasty Kyle Trask, Kellen Mond and Davis Mills.
Zach: Trask, Mills, Mond.
Travis: Davis Mills might get the first opportunity to actually start an NFL game but what they have around him is not that great. Kellen Mond is a dual threat quarterback, but i do not see him challenging Kirk Cousin’s starting position even in the next two years. There is a chance Mond never even see’s the field other than preseason. In dynasty if you can afford playing the long-term game with Kyle Trask would be the ideal thing. Trask under the tutelage Tom Brady could pay-off huge dividends in the future for your team.
1 Kellen Mond
2 Kyle Trask
3 Davis Mills
Brandon: Mills, Trask, Mond
- Start, bench, cut (not for fantasy) AJ Brown, DK Metcalf, Terry McLaurin.
Zach: Dang. Start DK, bench Brown and cut McLaurin. That was a tough one as these three are some of the best young wideouts in the game.
Travis: So taking non-fantasy into account and going by pure talent it would have to be DK all the way and I would say by a pretty wide margin. AJ Brown would be the second on my list the only reason I would have him higher in “fantasy” is because of the sheer volume that he’ll see this season. Terry McLaurin would be my obvious third choice and I do love the talent there as well he just doesn’t match up with those two.
Jason: Start DK, bench Scary Terry, cut AJ Bown.
Brandon: Start DK, bench McLaurin, cut AJ.
This is really tough, more about the offenses they are in than the actual players, would cut AJ simply so he doesn’t have to run block for Derrick Henry 30 times a game haha.
That’s it for this week guys. Thanks for reading and as always, stay true.
