2022 Dynasty/Fantasy Camp Notes (8/01/22)…

 

A daily collection of notes and commentary from training camps -- wanting to discuss the big news or give some tidbits you might not see anywhere else…

*SUBSCRIBERS = go to a subscriber section and see this same exact report with bonus, extended notes.

 

1) The Green Bay Packers WR market update…

Romeo Doubs has become the delight of the week from Green Bay training camp -- the mild buzz from people noticing how good he is, and Aaron Rodgers among others speaking of it…and a general Packers fan desperation for any good WR news/hope.

Before everyone crowns Doubs as the next big thing, keep in mind what happens far too often in training camps with ‘technically sound’ young WRs -- do you remember KeeSean Johnson for the Arizona Cardinals a few years ago?

Johnson was a day three draft pick (#174) that lit up training camp -- making plays with reliable hands and smart route running. KeeSean raced ahead of fellow rookies Andy Isabella (pick #62) and Hakeem Butler (pick #103)…all the way to him starting Week 1 and seeing 10 targets in his NFL debut game.

That Week 1 game was his career peak and he fell down and out of favor from there -- technically sound, great hands WR who had a hard time getting open in the real-deal games of the regular season.

Preseason 7-on-7 can create a lot of false stars of the moment, and Doubs could be one of them. However, the more I scout on Doubs, the more interested I am that he might be a legit NFL starter with technical gifting upside.

How much upside and how Christian Watson and Allen Lazard news fits into all this -- will be added on the subscriber notes version of this same piece.

2) The Las Vegas Raiders backfield…

The more I hear and see things about this situation, the more the whole ‘McDaniels is gonna run an RBBC a la New England’ theory is becoming a reality.

Josh Jacobs as the lead runner but Kenyan Drake as a James White a-like and then Zamir White as the wild card that McDaniels could easily fall in love with to split touches with Jacobs.

You know how most of us have a ‘you can’t trust a Belichick backfield’ for figuring out touches game-to-game, etc., for our Fantasy mindset/planning? Should we all just assume the same with McDaniels for Las Vegas?

Speaking of the New England backfield, a quick extra note on that in the subscriber version of this report.

3) Los Angeles Chargers new ILB?

Drue Tranquill and ____ will start at ILB this season, on a developing, beautiful LAC defense.

Kenneth Murray is out still recovering from offseason minor surgery…and he didn’t play well as it was last year, at ILB. Might have been the injury hampering him.

I thought LAC might sign Denver free agent Alexander Johnson by now if they wanted off of counting on Murray. But they have not.

Who is working at ILB…and has a chance to win the job right now? Kyle Van Noy. The former quality OLB/DE for New England in recent years (with a one-stop at Miami)…has been moved to ILB. That’s an interesting IDP development.

I can’t wait to see how he looks at this new position (for him) in the preseason -- if it’s nice, then this LAC defense has no holes…and the Kenneth Murray flame starts to flicker out. But he could be just a placeholder for Murray…which is great news for Murray that the team is still high on him.

 

 

4) Note #4 will be on the subscriber notes version of this piece.

The bonus note is about an emerging slot WR…who keeps on…’emerging’ in camp. AND is an incredible value in Dynasty/Fantasy right now, for a just short period remaining before everyone gives in and admits it’s real, like we’ve been saying since Jan-Feb-Mar.
