Veteran (6/8)



  1. Davis is a good pass catching back. He is not what I described. Cook moving as smooth as be does undersells how rare what he is doing really is. I like Davis alot and is a 3 down back. You are not going to see Davis 15 to 20 yards down field running a route like a slot wr.
  2. He is also being targeted in spots other backs are not. Corner and deep outs from the split back or wing positions are things other backs cant do. That adds to the overall difficulty of the catches. Majority of his drops came down the field. Traditional running back routes under 10 yards he was very consistent. Those bigger plays come down to him and Allen working on it. If he routinely makes those handful of plays he is in the conversation for best back in the league. Thats Marshall Faulk and Thurman Thomas stuff really. Right now only Mccaffery and maybe Kamara do some of the down the field things Cook does.
  3. Cooks is a unique case. He is efficient receiver but had a few drops last year in big spots. His career at GA or as a rookie he didn't have a drop problem. I think it could be attributed to an increase workload. Not a lack of ability or a flaw in technique. They were concentration drops. Might be something to monitor if he will be pushing 300 touches again. If they trim some of his carries I think he could make a bigger impact and be a tick more explosive. Pair with Davis I think helps Cook with the load of the offense. Davis can do some of the things Cook does minus the down the field passing stuff. I think Davis is a healthy contributor to the offense.
  4. Saleh is the absolute worst. Jets gonna Jets
  5. Comes down to consistency and longevity. He has another season like last year he shoots up the list. He has the tools to be the best player on offense next to Allen.
  6. He had a handful that he would want back. More you rely on your Qb to make plays more turnovers you have. Manning and Brees dealt with this push and pull over their careers. Years they won it all their offenses were balanced and defenses made plays. Having a more balanced offense and team decreases the feeling for Allen to carry the team on his back.
  7. Yes. I do not expect it to be a substantial move though.I think they flip a lineman or defensive back for a day 3 pick. Buffalo is a little deeper than people think. A few guys that dont make it will be picked up by other teams.
  8. If you play him like they played Davis I dont think you would see much of a difference. Maybe a bit more explosive but similar production and metrics. A long way to go before the season start. I do think the initial reports are more optimistic than expected. Of all the wrs on the team he is the freakiest athlete.
  9. I would argue its the style of play asked of him. When he could line up wide and Ben saw single coverage he threw it to him down the field. He was very good playing like that. Buffalo has a bunch of guys to work underneath with Shakir, Kincaid, Cook and Samuel. Claypool and MVS operate better down field.
  10. Top 10 roster with a top 5 Qb. Seems like Buffalo is fine. I expect they win the AFC east and have matchup with Cincy or KC in the divisional round again.
  11. Claypool being a player is a real boost to the room. Long time from now til September though. Today Shakir, Samuel, Coleman, MVS, Claypool and Hollins. Hollins is a likely team captain and special teams ace. I dont see more than 6 making it.
  12. Gotta hit Mahomes. This past season without Milano and Benard there was no answer for Kelce. Kelce is getting older. Contain Kelce and hit Mahomes. Do both of those and you win the game.
  13. Who is mocking the Vikings? Pointing out there is 20 mil difference likely larger at the top of the RB market vs Wr. With the way Wr contracts are going Cooks contract likely falls somewhere in Wr 2 to Wr 3 range. I would argue it it’s easier to find a wr 2 or 3 in the draft than a back like Cook. Still big if is injury. Only had one year of that level of usage. 2024 will be telling if he can handle that consistently.
  14. I would guess his contract would look like a Wr 2. 10 to 15 per year. Consider top Wr is 30-35
  15. Goes against most. If he stays healthy and continues to be top in the league in all scrimmage yards I entertain it. Whats the contract look like? Similar to the deal Curtis Samuel got? High end similar to Gabe Davis? I would argue he is more important to the offense than either.
