Delay of Games

Only NFLHC games this week; only CFBHC games the following week; back to normal after that.

It Takes Two

It took two overtimes for Minnesota to top Illinois on a clinching run by RB Tredaveon Jennings.

Sometimes, It Be Ya Own Self

The Saints ruin their undefeated season by running trick plays, as punter Adonis Rosa throws an interception. You'd think people would have learned by now.

What Happens in Reno

Nevada upsets #6 Duke 17-13 by shutting down QB Bryce Thompson; true freshman Damon Goode had a pick for the Wolf Pack.

Cardiac Cards

The Cardinals were down 17-0 in the 4th quarter... and put up 21 points to win. WR Marcus Banks caught a 40-yard TD pass with a minute left to cap it.

    Re-Visiting the 2017 NFLHC Draft

    Recommended Posts

    I could be misremembering but I believe the Bengals (read: me) actually traded for Buzz the year before drafting Thomas and he did in fact start several games with horrifyingly disappointing results, though he did have one good game catching the ball. Then he got traded again and cut by someone else iirc. Anyways, just a small nitpick since I was on the bengals for buzz but not thomas.

     

    Love the article though, rare we get something this in depth.

    I thought he did too (had it written that way originally), but Ron Thomas was was drafted in 2018 and started all 16 games for the Bengals so that's not true. There aren't any recorded stats on the wiki of Buzz starting any games outside of Houston, but I know he was horrible in the preseason performances he did play later on.

    the stats on the wiki usually just reflect what team the player was on at the start of the year. might be why.

    Yeah but RT started all 16 games in 2018, so I don't believe that Buzz would have gotten any opportunity to play in that year anyway

    I'm mostly sure Buzz was the RB when the Bengals threw it 70 times a game pre-RT after being traded from Houston midyear in 2017. Pretty sure he was then traded to the Packers and cut, and then Houston picked him up. I ocached him for one year and he me made one start, fumbled, and was never to see the field again.

    The Texans, meanwhile, had a rough draft class. Despite 2 2nd round picks and 7 picks in the first four rounds total, not a single player still starts in NFLHC, let alone for the Texans. None of the players they drafted remain on the roster just 4 seasons later. The best pick was probably WR Gordon Kleinsasser, a guy who has declined from his rookie overall, or DT Nathan Knolwton who can't even nab a starting job on the Chargers.

     

     

    Ouch

    I wouldn't consider Dawkins anywhere near a bust.  We knew he was a RT when we took him and he's graded out as a good player in the PFF OL analysis.  Part of his stunted rating growth has been two injuries, including an ACL last year.
