Welcome back to the TSF Round Table where the guys at Truth Serum Football are here to talk some ball. The draft is quickly approaching 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.
- Who’s your favorite QB draft prospect and why?
Pynakker: Haven’t really been paying much attention tbh but I’ve been hearing a lot about Pickett.
Anthony: Malik Willis. Offers the highest ceiling with his rushing ability and arm talent and should be able to start from day 1. For fantasy purposes he offers the best combo of ceiling and floor due to the rushing. Especially if he lands in a favorable situation like Pittsburgh where he could sit a few games could help his development.
Seth: Malik Willis he has all the tangibles to be a great quarterback and a solid arm.
Manil: My favorite QB prospect is probably Malik Willis. He reminds me a lot of Lamar Jackson, who is a blast to watch.
- How do you think Adams will affect Waller’s production?
Pynakker: I think Waller is kind of like Kelce, the production will stay, but he won’t have to be forced to be on the field every play.
Anthony: Of course an alpha WR like Adams is going to cut into targets for everyone else in the offense. Adams steps in and immediately becomes a 150+ target WR and Darren Waller never was a major TD scorer. If Waller sees a significant dip in targets he could fall down towards the lower part of TE1 instead of being a top 3 option like we’ve seen.
Seth: I think he’s gonna help allow him to get open because they’re gonna be more covering Adams than Waller.
Manil: I think we see a decline in Waller’s stats compared to his average when he plays the full season, but if he’s healthy I expect both to hit 1k receiving.
- Do you see Najee Harris as a top 10 PPR RB this year?
Pynakker: Yes, he was solid already last year and got better as the season went on.
Anthony: Absolutely. Najee Harris should absolutely get fed volume in the passing and running game. He probably won’t see as many targets as last season but should still be a good bet for 60+ targets and the Steelers oline so far looks somewhat improved which should help his efficiency. Plus there’s so many question marks around the top tier of RBs (CMC, Kamara, Cook, Henry) I could easily see Harris in the top 10 this year
Seth: I do. I might go as far as top 3 with a chance to finish as the top back.
Manil: Absolutely. In fact, with no real QB, the path to even more carries has opened up.
- Give us a player who you think is completely washed and should retire.
Pynakker: Hurts to say it but Julio Jones might be that guy… he’s been having issues the last few years and he’s not that playmaker he used to be unfortunately.
Anthony: The easy answer last season would have been Big Ben but now that he’s hung it up I would have to say Julio Jones. He can barely stay on the field now and even when he’s active he seems like a shell of his former self. Certainly headed to the hall of fame but I think it’s time for Julio to hang it up.
Seth: Sheldon Richardson. I believe he expired 2 years ago.
Manil: I think it’s high time Ryan Fitzpatrick retires. He also suffered a pretty bad hip injury
- Start, bench, cut: Amari Cooper, Mike Evans, Keenan Allen.
Pynakker: Start Evans, bench Allen, cut Cooper.
Anthony: Start Mike Evans. Bench Amari Cooper. Cut Keenan Allen. Evans offers the most upside with Brady back in town and Godwin possibly missing time due to the ACL. Cooper could have a sky high ceiling with Watson in town so good to keep him on the bench and Keenan doesn’t offer the same ceiling so he can get cut.
Seth: Start Keenan Allen
Bench Mike Evans
Cut Amari Cooper
Manil: Start Evans, bench Keenan, cut Cooper.
That’s it for this week guys. Thanks for reading and as always, stay true.
