Winston...anybody? It may not be likely but it's very possible. At least that is what most of us are hoping to see happen.

Re: Comeback Player of the Year favorite

Lots of the national talking heads throwing around who's the best WR and Thomas isn't even mentioned...

Closest comparison to @CantGuardMike would be Davante Adams, who's Rodgers only legit target...

Only other two in that league of WR would be DeAndre Hopkins and Julio Jones, and am curious to see how Julio and the Titans get on this season...

Stephon Diggs? Until he exploded with the Bucks, thought his best moment was that reception which shall not be recollected...

But Diggs and Josh Allen (who I said was the BPA in the 2018 Draft) really have something good going and they just need a legit RB1 and they're right there with the Chiefs...

Top 10 WR1 in the NFL:


  1. Michael Thomas

  2. DeAndre Hopkins

  3. Julio Jones

  4. Devante Adams

  5. Tyreek Hill

  6. Odell Beckham

  7. Robert Woods

  8. Mike Evans

  9. Allen Robinson II

  10. Stephon Diggs

Honorable Mention: Adam Thielen

Why? He may be better with a better QB (Diggs MIN > BUF)

In fact, with that Bills DST, they may be the better team; HC Sean McDermott is a Top 5 NFL HC (Bill Belichick, Andy Reid, Bruce Arians, Sean Payton, and McDermott)...

It's not that my way is the right way, I just make the right way my way...

Thanks for your thoughts! Solid ranking from what my limited perspective gives. Calvin Ridley springs to mind as a solid player as well. What are your thoughts on him ?

Curious situation with Julio Jones having a new zip code; Ridley, an elite WRz, will face more CB1s now; but the ATL will also have TE Kyle Pitts...

Sure the ATL is hoping for a WRz/TE1 combination like the KC Chefs have with Tyreek Hill and Travis Kelce; KC has had a revolving door at their WRx...

Atlanta will also now have a void at their WRx; this may allow the Saints to put Marshon on an island and rotate the secondary to Ridley's side at the WRz...

Like our chances and considering these factors, certain looks like Ridley is set to regress some this season; so it'll be interesting to see if he responds...

Is Pitts the second coming of the best tight ends?

That's the way he was billed. Completely unstoppable. A matchup nightmare along the lines of Darren Waller. We'll see how it pans out, however. If anyone can screw it up it's the Falcons.
