Editors Note:- Throughout the season we’ll be asking Toilets to Titles team members to answer us a few questions.
Today we have Alex, Justin, and Rich to answer some questions on after two weeks.
With the rookie Quarterbacks all struggling who is your favourite for the Rookie of the Year?
Alex – If non-skill positions players ever won this award, I would say Rashawn Slater. He is a beast of a man and has only allowed 5 QB pressures so far this season. 4 of which were in the game against the Cowboys. But since that is rarely true, I will have to go with Ja’Marr Chase. He has been every bit of the stud we thought he would be. Chase seems to get open at will and knows how to hit pay dirt. He has done so 5 times this season through 3 weeks. Chase seems to be the clear front runner as of right now, and unless 1 of these quarterbacks wakes up and carries their team to a playoff run, he should remain atop the podium.
Justin – For Offensive ROY, it’s Ja’Marr Chase. 3 games, 4 TDs. Obvious go to guy for Burrow. The top Rookie WR in most stats and his current targets per game are definitely sustainable and will likely only increase with experience.
Defensive ROY, Micah Parsons. A true guard here is to see the complete difference in how the Cowboys defense looks now compared to last season. He can play any position on the field at a high level and has already caused headaches for opposing offenses.
Rich – My pick for Rookie of the year is Ja’Marr Chase and the defensive rookie of the year at this stage is Michael Parsons of the Cowboys.
Who do you think is the last 3-0 team to lose a game?
Alex – I believe the Arizona Cardinals will remain undefeated the longest out of the remaining 3-0 teams. They have an uphill battle achieving that this Sunday when they play the Rams on the road, another of the remaining 3-0 teams. I think they have the fire power and type of offense that could key in on the weaknesses of the Rams defense. They are fast, spread, and unpredictable. I think by now we have all figured out that Cooper Kupp is Matt Stafford’s bestie. Therefore, the Cardinals probably also possess that knowledge. It will be interesting to see how the Rams adjust once Kupp is shut down in a matchup.
Justin – Well, I have 4 of the 5 3-0 teams losing this week. I have the Raiders losing this week on Monday Night against the Chargers, the Broncos losing at home against the Ravens, and the Panthers losing at Dallas. This leaves 🍁 only the Rams and Cardinals left and they are playing each other. I’m taking the Rams because they are the home team in this one and I think the Rams are winning it all this year.
Rich – My gut feeling is that the Rams will be the last undefeated team.
Who do you think is the last 0-3 team to win a game?
Alex – Poor Jets fans. Maybe next year, right? I don’t see how this team ever squeaks out a win. That offense gave a glimpse in preseason of how dynamic and explosive it might be. But I think it’s going to take time and until then there are definitely going to be growing pains. One of those pains may be a winless season. I am still hopeful they are still in a better spot than they were last year but this year ain’t the year it turns around.
Justin – I’m pretty confident that the Lions will beat the Bears this week. After that, looking at the schedule for the remaining teams, I think the Dolphins will be the best chance at being a slump buster for 3 of the other 4 teams. The Colts should beat the Brissett led Dolphins this week, the Jags should be able to beat them at home in week 6, and if the Jets are going to pull off a win, it just might also be against the Dolphins at home in Week 11. This leaves only the Giants with a team that I can’t see a win for when I look at their schedule to that point.
Rich – My gut feeling at this point is the Jets will be the last team to win a game.
Who is your favourite buy low fantasy player right now?
Alex – In dynasty, Michael Pittman is my buy low player currently. I don’t know how much longer the buy low window is going to be open. He has seen 24 targets over the last two games and has caught 14 for 191 yards. Carson Wentz is still his QB, and most likely for the next few years, but I think Pittman can still ascend as the Colts alpha WR. Get him now because it’s going to cost a whole lot more after a few more weeks of 10+ targets.
In redraft, I am trying to get my grubby little paws on Javonte Williams before he breaks out or Melvin Gordon gets hurt. Both of those may already be in the works. Gordon is dealing with a rib injury sustained in week 3. This may propel Williams into the main role or give the lead altogether to try and get Gordon healthy. Either way, once he becomes the lead back, he’s not going to be cheap. Later season breakout RBs can help carry a fantasy team through the colder months of the fantasy playoffs. Get him before it’s too late.
Justin – Stefon Diggs in Redraft. The targets are still there (over 10 per game). He’s currently the WR 27 overall which is as low as he will be all season. Game scripts have not called for them to need Diggs much so far this season and he do for some positive regression. Look for him to pop back into the top 10 WR range overall within the next 2 weeks.
Rich – I feel like Robert Woods in PPR leagues is someone that I am targeting. His value is low now due to the focus on Kupp and he’s in a high powered offense and should have better days ahead.
