Analysis-
With how many variations of the Raptors game I wanted, I decided to do the 20 entry strategy again. I had Gasol in 19 of 20 lineups, with Kawhi, Lin, Siakam, and Kyrie as my highest owned other plays. I had some of Vuc and Gobert and Myles and Powell and Jokic, cause I loved so many Centers, and I wanted to pair them with Gasol. I also went with my plan of having 0% Westbrook and PG13, which didn’t go so well, unfortunately. But I took a stand against the field with them and Doncic, and I wanted to get my exposure elsewhere, and go well over. But the people I was heaviest on did great, so now It is going to come down to how these last 2 games finish themselves out. As of right now I’m about even. Let’s hope we can push it to the positive.
The Daily Slate:
A nice 8 game slate here. Some great spots, some traps, some stuff to avoid. It’ll be a fun day after a couple of rougher slates. Let’s get into it!
Situations to take advantage of (in no particular order):
Drummond - The Lakers have been one of the worst teams in the NBA against Centers.The Lakers are 6th in pace and the Pistons are 30th. He will get matched up against JaVale McGee who can’t defend a paper bag. The Lakers give up the most DKPPG. They are on the 2nd night of a back-to-back, having to travel from Toronto after last night’s game. LeBron is not supposed to play on both ends of a B2B for the rest of the year, so he should be out, removing about the only decent defender the Lakers have. And his absence will help Drummond (8800) get to his 20/20. I would also take a severely underpriced Blake (7700), but Drummond is the priority here. I will also add that R Jax (4300) is QUESTIONABLE, though he said he should play. He should be in a good spot if he does. Though, honestly, I would be a fan of Ish (3900) regardless.
Embiid - Joel Embiid (9900) should be well over 10k. Embiid is 4th in the NBA in usage. WCS can’t defend him. No one on this team can. He is going to go for 60 DKP here if this game stays close. Unfortunately, with a 233 total being something we love, the spread of PHI -9 gives us some cause for concern. Still, Embiid should get 30 minutes, even if this game blows out and he can crush this price no matter what. I would also be a huge fan of taking Ben Simmons (8500) who should be more expensive than this as well. It feels like they priced down the Sixers for some reason, because, against a Kings team that presents as a huge pace up spot for the 10th-in-pace Sixers, these guys are going to have a ton of possessions and a ton of production.
Hield - I don’t really love anyone from this team. I have to admit that off the bat. I don’t mind attacking PHI through PF, so, if Bjelica (4600) gets the start again, and we can expect him to get 25-30 minutes, I would be a big fan of getting on him. He is also a fantastic defender, while Bagley is one of the worst, so they may need to use him a bunch regardless. But, if there’s someone I love, it is Hield (7100). With Fox defended by Simmons and Barnes defended by Butler, Hield will get the best draw on the team, against a JJ Redick he can absolutely destroy. He will put up a ton of shots tonight, and, if this game does stay as close as Vegas thinks, I would think that Hield is a huge reason why. He’s a GPP risk, but, for a GPP play, you could do so, so much worse.
Hornets vs Wizards - This game has an awesome 232 total with a spread of WAS -3.5. These are 2 teams with consolidated usage, meaning that this is about as good a spot as we can get. The one thing we need to know is that Cody Zeller is Doubtful and Trevor Ariza is Questionable, so we will look at everything with that in mind
First up, Brad Beal (9500), who has been on fire lately, drastically underowned, and will be attacking a Charlotte team that is +11 when it comes to pace/DKPPG, which shows just how bad they are. Beal commands most of the usage on this team and he has been a 3x2 threat every game lately. 67 DKP against MIN. 59.75 DKP against SAC. Then, last game, 45.5 DKP against ORL, which is the worst matchup possible nowadays. I would expect him to be closer to the 60 DKP again, especially here. The Wizards are still hanging on to playoff hope, and Beal should give it his all
Second, Zeller is the only decent defender the Hornets have at C. Him being out leaves C in the hands of Biyombo and Hernangomez, two of the worst statistical defenders in the NBA. That means I want either Portis (6100) or Bryant (4000). I would never play both together, but they have shown that, generally, one of them will get run and have a good chance to produce every game. With the Hornets that bad against Ds today, I would be a big fan of one of them
Third, Ariza is QUESTIONABLE. If he plays, he would be a decent option, but not great. But if he misses, he opens the door for Jabari (5800) to get a TON of run. If Ariza does miss, I will be all over Jabari. He would be one of my favorite plays on the day.
On the Hornets side, with Zeller out, I would have interest in Hernangomez (3200), who should get the start and 20-25 minutes here. The Wizards are horrid against Centers, and have been since Howard went down. Hernangomez isn’t going to win you any defensive awards, but he can put up the offensive stats when given the chance. And he should be given that chance tonight.
I will have a hard time going to Kemba (8200) though. He is the player that relies on the pick and roll the most and, without Zeller, the Hornets just can’t pull it off effectively. If you want to go to one of the point scorers on this team, I would take the chance on Lamb (5800), who should have to do some stepping up, against a terrible Wizards D, in a huge pace up matchup.
Heat 3 Point Shooters - As I have pointed out several times, the best way to attack the Bucks is the same way they attack you - with 3 pointers. And also, positionally, you want to attack the Bucks at PF and SG. Wouldn’t you know that the Heat players that take the 2 most 3 pointers a game happen to start at PF and SG? And, with Dwyane Wade questionable, one of them might get even more run? First is Josh Richardson (5800) who should be priced at around 6500. He will get those minutes regardless, but will be locked into minutes and usage if Wade is out. And he shoots almost 7 3p a game, which they will need to keep this game close. And, somehow, Vegas thinks it will stay that way - with a 220 total and a spread of MIL -4.5. So, while people will avoid this matchup, due to the speed and defense, there are places to attack.
Starting at PF is Kelly Olynyk (5400) who is one of the most important players for the Heat, from a +/- perspective, and that is something they will need as they cling onto playoff hope. While he has gotten significantly less run lately due to blow outs, if this game stays close, I would expect him to run 35 minutes or so, and take a crazy number of 3s. Again, given the weakness the Bucks show against PF, I will be all over him. I also want to point out something I haven’t in awhile - Lopez will pull Bam away from the hoop a lot, which gives Olynyk more rebound upside, which I will take
Bucks - I don’t know exactly who I want to take here. The Heat are 27th in pace and give up the 3rd least DKPPG. They are slow, and defensive, and methodical. And trying to hold on to the 8th seed in the East. So the Heat are going to be playing on all cylinders. The Heat are also best in the NBA against C, so I don’t want to take BroLo this time. There are a couple ways to attack the Heat, though - 3s, or PFs. Fortunately, that is where the Bucks thrive. So, first, you can consider Giannis (10900), who should be underowned, considering Harden is only 100 more than him. He isn’t the safest to get the minutes, and I would only play him in GPPs, you can’t deny the ceiling or upside.
One of the other ways to attack the Heat recently, is with 3s and SFs. So that means I will be all over Middleton (6800) who plays SF and shoots more 3s than any other Bucks player, minus BroLo. He also has made more 3s than any other Bucks player. I expect him to shoot a ton of 3s today, and he is, by far, my favorite player on this team.
Blazers vs. Pelicans - The game with the highest total on the slate, at 235, with a spread of POR -7.5, this is going to be an amazing game for production. The Pels are first in pace and give up the most DKPPG. They are worst in the NBA against C, and 2nd worst against SF. They are also one of the worst teams against all sorts of guards when Jrue is out, which he is. So, first, we should lock in Lillard (9000) who should absolutely demolish this Pels team. The Blazers are in a tight battle for seeding, so they are going to play hard and, when that happens, the Buck stops with Lillard. He could be priced 10k in this matchup, and we could still take him without reservation. The only issue we should have is worrying this game blows out. For that reason, we can take a chance on CJ (6800), who has been super hot lately, but is tough to trust because he is scoring dependent. Still in this matchup, who is going to stop him?
I also want to go in on Kanter (4500). I feel like, given the way they’ve been doling out minutes lately, they are trying to save Nurkic for the playoffs. He’s going to get you 25-28 minutes which means we get Kanter at 20-23 minutes, something we should be drooling over. He is going to get over 30+ DKP tonight. And I doubt that many people are on him
We also need to be aware of injury news - Harkless and Curry are both Questionable. If Harkless misses, I would take a chance on Layman (3300) getting that extra run. If Curry misses, I would think this gets Lillard more run, with CJ getting the backup minutes. I doubt they give Anfernee Simons a bunch of run here.
On the Pels side, Brow is QUESTIONABLE. If he plays, I imagine this game stays closer, even though he only gets 20 minutes. Who I would have interest in is Randle (8300) and Payton (6600). Randle has seen his price come down 400 in one game. He is going to get 35 minutes here, even if the game blows out, against a Blazers team that isn’t going to be able to deal with him at the 4. I don’t think he’s guaranteed 50 DKP like some other plays, but I do think he’s in a great spot and, if you want to go in on POR, he’s a sensible play to run it back with.
Elf has seen his price come up 1600 in the last 4 games, but, after his 57.25 DKP, 3x2 last game against the best defense in the NBA, the Bucks, Elf only saw his price go up 100. He should easily be able to do that again. I don’t project it, but he is a huge % of this offense with Jrue out, and that won’t change. He will be going for his 3rd straight 3x2, and I wouldn’t be surprised AT ALL, if he gets the minutes to do it. Again, the Portland players are going to be popular. It would make sense to run it back with one of these guys.
I also want to point out that Ian Clark (3300) is still getting a TON of minutes every game and he could certainly make good on that today. F Jax saw his price spike, and Clark just sits there, producing as much as Jackson, at far too cheap a price
Robin Lopez - Man, the Clippers are a bad D. They are one of the worst teams in the NBA against PF, C, and PG. But they are worst against C, so I would be a fan of taking RoLo (5700) as the first Bull. He has been getting 35 minutes in good games lately, and, if he gets 35 minutes against the Clippers, he could get 40 DKP. That is incredible value. I also think Lauri (8000) has the chance to rebound after a bunch of bad starts. I don’t think he’ll get you more than 50-55 DKP, but that’s still great for the price. The Clippers have been 2nd best against SF, so I don’t have much interest in Otto, but I would be a huge fan of LaVine (7800), should he play without limits. He will spend a TON of time lined up against LouWill, and that is the recipe for 50 DKP here.
LouWill - You know what else is the recipe for 50 DKP? Being lined up against LaVine, as LouWill (7100) is going to do for a majority of this game. He is in a fantastic spot coming off a bad game against POR. For that reason, I would be a big fan of PatBev (5100), who would start the game lined up against LaVine, before moving down the line later on. I would also be a fan of Montrezl (6000), who would get a lot of run against the awful Bulls backups, before closing out against underwhelming Bulls starters.
Situations to be careful of(in no particular order):
Lakers - The Lakers should be without LeBron, who isn’t supposed to play on B2B anymore. They have to travel to another country after last night’s loss. The Pistons have been playing at the slowest pace in the NBA and giving up the 2nd least DKPPG. They have been above average defending against every position. Honestly, the Lakers just aren’t in that good a spot. That being said, LeBron being out should open up a ton of usage for a bunch of other folks. First, if Rondo (6400) isn’t also held out for some reason, he should push for a 3x2 minus LeBron and against Reggie Jackson. Kuzma (6200) gets a tough matchup against the best PF defense in the NBA, making him less desirable. But when LeBron is out, he becomes the big dog, so he’s worth a chance. KCP (3700) is risky, but should get a ton of run.
Suns vs. Rockets - A surprisingly low 225 total with an upsetting spread of HOU -13, this is going to be a game that will be hard to target if you are a player that cares about blow outs, or only plays one lineup. I know the Suns have beaten the Bucks and Warriors recently, so all bets are off. But I also know that the Suns are worst in the NBA, by far, against SG. And that Devin Booker is also the worst defensive SG in the NBA, by far. So this is a spot that **Harden (11000) could get 45 points by halftime. That may sound like an exaggeration, but it is not. The Suns are a huge pace up spot for the Rockets. The Suns give up the 2nd most DKPPG. And, like I said, the Suns absolutely hemorrhage points to shooting guards. I am not exaggerating - this is the best possible spot Harden could be in as a SG. The only way this could get better is if CP3 winds up missing. I am worried this will blow out but, honestly, so will other people. It will really come down to how ownership looks tomorrow.
If you are playing Harden, you have to assume this game stays close. If that is the case, you might as well acknowledge that the Suns are 2nd worst against C and one of the worst against PG. So if you don’t want to go all the way up to Harden, but still want exposure, Capela (7300) and CP3 (6900) are underpriced. They could also be played with Harden as part of a stack. I should just warn you - NO ONE on this Suns team will be able to stop Harden. Ayton will draw 4 fouls in the first half trying to stop Harden from getting to the rim. There is no reason for anyone else to have to handle the ball, so just be wary of that.
On the Suns side, if this stays close, it will be because of Devin Booker (8100), especially with Warren still out, and Tyler Johnson questionable with a bad knee. If he gets a bunch of time handling the ball, he will get a bunch more assists, increasing his raw point total, and his chance of getting the 2x2 bonus. He will also shoot the ball 30 times without those 2 guys on the floor. Again, for this to work, you are hoping for Booker to have a shooting day so hot he keeps this game close, but, the way the Suns have been playing upset lately, I wouldn’t be shocked at all.
Johnson missing would also give more usage to Oubre (5900) and Ayton (6100), who would both be lined up in good positions to succeed. I would greatly prefer Oubre, who would line up against Eric Gordon, one of the worst SG defenders in the NBA, given how much more consistent he has been lately. Capela is also a bad defender, though, so Ayton, fresh off of disappointing in a chalk situation, should be underowned for being in a good spot.
Knicks vs Spurs - The lowest total on the slate, with a 216.5, and the highest spread, with SA -13.5, this is a game we are going to want to avoid. With the other 7 games on this slate, there is no reason to go here barring some kind of injury news. DSJ is questionable. If he misses, you HAVE to take a chance on Mudiay (4200), even though he would see the stifling defense of Derrick White all game. Jordan (5500) just got 35 minutes last game and put up 38.5 DKP. The game before that he got 15 minutes. So he is someone, at that price, you can take a chance on. Otherwise, feel free to take a chance on anyone you want if you feel like truly just rolling the die on the a Knicks player, but I don’t like wasting my money..
On the Spurs side, My interest will come with lineup news. I assume Jordan and Vonleh start at C and PF, meaning I don’t want Poeltl or LMA here. DeRozan (8400), though, will be lined up against Knox, the worst SF defender in the NBA. If you are going to go anywhere on the Spurs, make sure it is with DeRozan. Also, White (6300) is still underpriced, but, again, in this situation I would just rather go to other games.
Situations to monitor:
  • DSJ Questionable
  • Harkless Questionable, Curry Questionable
  • Brow Questionable
  • Tyler Johnson Questionable
  • Wade Questionable
  • Ariza Questionable
  • Zeller Doubtful
  • LeBron Questionable, Stephenson Questionable, Chandler Questionable
  • Reggie Jackson Questionable
  • Starting PF for SAC
  • Starting C for CHA
Alright! That’s all for this slate. I need to write at least one more baseball article today, so time to get on that!

Notable Moments
The rivalry between the Philadelphia Eagles and New York Giants is the oldest rivalry in the NFC East. The rivalry began in 1933 with the founding of the Eagles, and slowly strengthened when both teams came to relative prominence in the 1940s and 1950s. The two teams have played in the same division in the NFL every year since 1933. The ferocity of the rivalry can also be attributed to the geographic New York-Philadelphia rivalry, which is mirrored in Major League Baseball's Mets–Phillies rivalry and National Hockey League's Flyers–Rangers rivalry. It is ranked by NFL Network as the #1 rivalry of all-time and Sports Illustrated has it among the top ten NFL rivalries of all-time at #4, and according to ESPN, it is one of the fiercest and most well-known rivalries in the football community.
November 20,1960 - The Hit - The Eagles' Chuck Bednarik cleanly blindsided Giants running back Frank Gifford, sending Gifford into an 18-month retirement due to a severe concussion
November 19, 1978 - The Miracle at the Meadowlands - The Giants were leading the Eagles 17-12 with 20 seconds remaining. Offensive coordinator Bob Gibson called for a running play when all that was needed was for the Giants to take a knee. The handoff between quarterback Joe Pisarcik and Larry Csonka was fumbled and Eagles CB Herman Edwards grabbed the loose ball and returned it for the winning score.
November 20, 1988 The Giants hosted the Eagles with both teams in the running for control over their division. The Eagles, led by head coach Buddy Ryan and quarterback Randall Cunningham, fought a tough match to bring the game into overtime with the score tied at 17-17. In overtime, Eagles DE Clyde Simmons carried the ball 15 yards for the game-winning touchdown, after the Giants had a FG attempt blocked. Both teams finished with identical 10-6 records, but the Eagles won the NFC East due to their head-to-head victory, while the Giants lost the wild card tiebreaker to the Los Angeles Rams and missed the playoffs. The Eagles would lose to the Chicago Bears in a game famously known as the Fog Bowl.
October 31, 1999 - The Eagles and Giants were tied at 17-17 in overtime when Eagles QB Doug Pederson had his pass blocked up in the air and was intercepted by Michael Strahan. Strahan returned for a 44-yard touchdown to win the game for the Giants 23-17.
January 7, 2001 - The Giants defeated the Eagles 20-10 in a Divisional Playoff game due to Ron Dixon's 97-yard kickoff return and Jason Sehorn's acrobatic 32-yard interception return. This win would help propel the Giants to Super Bowl XXXV which they ultimately lost to the Baltimore Ravens, 34-7.
December 19, 2010 - Miracle at New Medowlands - The Giants led the Eagles 31-10 with 7:28 left in the first game between the teams at New Meadowlands Stadium where first place in the NFC East was on the line. But the Eagles would rally to tie the score, then win the game on DeSean Jackson's 65 yard punt return for a touchdown with no time left on the clock for a shocking 38-31 victory. The Elias Sports Bureau also believes that this is the first walk-off punt return in NFL history. The Giants went on to miss the playoffs, despite finishing tied for first with the Eagles at 10-6, and the Eagles lost their last two games.
October 12, 2014 - Black Sunday - The Eagles authored the first shutout in the series since a 20-0 loss in 1998, and their first shutout win in the series since 1996, winning 27-0. Quarterback Nick Foles threw for 248 yards and two touchdowns while he and three Eagles backs rushed for 203 yards (led by LeSean McCoy's 149 yards). The Giants failed on a fourth and goal attempt in the third quarter following a Foles interception; even worse, wide receiver Victor Cruz suffered a season-ending injury on the play. Eli Manning was held to 151 yards and backup Ryan Nassib connected for 60 yards.

Matchups to Watch
Eagles CB Nolan Carroll vs. Giants WR Odell Beckham, Jr.
Carroll goes from facing Dez Bryant to Beckham. Fans will recall the late touchdown by Bryant last Sunday, but overall Carroll battled well. Beckham isn't 100 percent as he's recovering from a hip injury. But he has 32 straight games with at least three catches and 18 consecutive contests with a catch of 10 yards or more. In Week 6 against Baltimore, Beckham sparked the Giants with eight catches for 222 yards and two touchdowns.
Eagles DE Brandon Graham vs. Giants T Bobby Hart
It could be argued that Brandon Graham has been the best player on defense for the Eagles this season. Graham leads the team in tackles for loss (7), QB hurries (20) and forced fumbles (2), and is tied for the team lead with four sacks. Hart was put in the lineup during the Week 2 contest after Marshall Newhouse suffered a calf injury. Newhouse is practicing on a limited basis, but it remains to be seen whether or not he will play Sunday.
Eagles WR Dorial Green-Beckham vs. Giants CB Janoris Jenkins
Jenkins was part of the Giants' big spending spree in free agency to shore up the defensive side of the ball. With a limited pass rush, the Giants have relied on the secondary to hold up and for the most part it has. Jenkins has eight passes defensed in the past three games. The Eagles have to find a way to stretch the field and the 6-5, 237-pound Green-Beckham provides the size and ability to test defenses in the vertical game. At the very least, DGB can use that big frame to help draw pass interference penalties.
Eagles G Stefen Wisniewski vs. Giants DT Johnathan Hankins
With Allen Barbre likely sidelined due to a hamstring injury, Wisniewski is in line to make his first start as an Eagle at left guard. Hankins is a disruptive force in the run game as he has registered at least one tackle for loss in each of the past two contests. The Eagles will need to establish the run to help make things easier for quarterback Carson Wentz in the pass game. The 6-2, 320-pound Hankins also has a blocked punt on his résumé in 2016.

Possibly the most sickening EP. Writing this makes me Seethe with rage. !REALLY LONG!

This is my first ever post outside of an attempt to find people playing dayz on reddit. Anyway, this story is an old one i've decided to share after watching Entitled parent youtube videos. So to begin we must go back in time about 6-7 years ago to when i was in 6th grade so at the time i would've been 11-12 this'll be a hell long one. (Ep/Ek will mean the usual, P = Principal T= Teacher)
I had been going to the same school as the Ek of this story since 2nd grade, small public school verging on underfunded (Lived on an island at the time) Ek is semi popular and targets me to bully since day 1, at that age i was suspected to be Aspergic and/or on the autism scale, so my aloof ways made me an easy target especially cause it was easy to get a rise out of me.
I go through this crap relatively okay till 5th grade. (I forgot to mention this kid was a year older then me but in the same grade!) By 5th grade i'm a pretty sad kid, only friends being another kid who's autistic and this kid with cerebral palsy who kinda just hung around us cause we were usually in the library, I'm so crushed at this point of my childhood that i begin self harming. (Won't go into further details about it) Mum notices and after a very emotional talk with her 11 year old son, she contacts the school for a meeting with Ep and Ek and the Principal obviously.
As a intermission, my mum is a badass, i've had problems with school and employers after this story and my mum has verbally whooped there asses time and time again, even helping a shady restaurant out of business through OHS (Occupational Health and Safety) for paying minors not even a quarter of the legal minimal wage. This makes her sound Entitled herself but she's never stood up for me like she does if it's my fault yada yada. Just wanted to give her some love and appreciation! On with the story.
Let's hop to the meeting between me, mum, P, Ep & Ek. It's after school, mum and i are waiting in the office for Ep and Ek, so mums just talking to P about how i'm performing and some of the stuff i had disclosed to her about Ek. (Now this is half a decade + ago, and too much 420 blaze it has muddled me a tad so apologies if this sounds fake has some plot holes but i'll try my best to recreate the following scene most of the dialogue will be 'along the lines' of what would have gone down except some real kickers i remember)
Ep and Ek arrive, and the Ep looks exactly like the typical "I want to see the manager" kinda lady shitty fringe haircut and all. They sit, the Ep does so with an amazing amount of sass, which may as well have been the nicest thing she did that day. P- "I have received some very serious accusations and complaints from (me and my mum whom for dialouge i'll call myself J and mum Jess) and i've called you to this meeting to hopefully make some amends." Ep- "Uhuh and?" P- "Jess has made me aware that your child has been severly bullying J for some time now and has caused emotional and possible educational damage" (I spent ALOT of time out of class as i was unstable at the time cause of Ek) Mum- "I don't want to cause a fight Ep, but i'm worried for my child" I honestly think mum could just smell the entitlement in the air thinking back on it as that is one of the lines of dialogue from the meeting i remember. Ep- "Me neither Jess, so what has my son done to cause all this damage" The principal then goes on to explain the accusations my mum had made, the bullying and all that jazz bar my self harming which the principal is aware of but mum didn't want it to be a part of the meeting, mainly just wanted P to know how serious it was, her decision to disclose it not mine though /:
So after this obvious assault on her parenting and child Ep is sucking all the Entitlement in the world into her mortal body a very dangerous thing to do if you ask me! Ep- "Uhuh, So you're saying my son has bullied, beat up and caused J to lose class time because of emotional turbulence?" after saying this she looks at her child who'd been quiet the whole time, and honestly you would've thought she was about to wring his neck with the venom that was in her eyes but oh no that was reserved for everyone else in the room. Ep- "I don't believe you, my son is a very well behaved boy at home and has never came home with any evidence of fighting on him, he is a smart young man with a lot of friends and no one wants to be friends with a bully" venom's still in her eyes btw, but in all honesty i don't find what she said doesn't seem to entitled more dumbfounded. -Side note, i'm surprised how much i'm remembering of this- P- "I'm aware you may have your reservations Ep, but you are not here supervising your child during school times and these accusations are serious. Grounds for suspension possibly even indefinite suspension"
The principal hath opened the gates of hell's hell.
Ep- "HOW DARE YOU THREATEN MY SON! I WILL REITERATE THAT HE IS A GOOD CHILD AND WOULD NEVER DO ANY OF THIS STUFF YOU ARE ACCUSING HIM OF!!!!!!" if this seems sudden it's cause it was i remember near shitting myself at her vocal power, and being a vocallist myself i'm low key jealous of that screech. P- "Ma'am please calm down" Ep- "NO YOU ARE ATTACKING MY SON THESE ARE LIES!" This is when my mum steps in. Mum- "Ep, please lower your voice we can hear you fine at a normal conversational level we're not hard of hearing. I am as surprised as you, your son LOOKS like a nice enough kid and i've seen him playing when picking up my own child from school from time to time so i found this very hard to believe at first but my child has brought forward some irrefutable evidence, I'm not trying to get your child in trouble, i don't want him suspended or sacrificing his own education. I just want to make some kind of amends." Ep- "By attacking my child!? he's done NOTHING to your kid besides he is a GOOD CHILD (If ya keep saying something it becomes true if you didn't know) If you don't like my child lady then move yours to another school" This was a silly request as we were on an island, there were two schools, the shitty public school where this takes place and an EXPENSIVE private school that has three fucking campuses on the island, crazy huh? Anyway the only other school was a near one hour drive onto the main land. Mum- "I get that he behaves at home, but J is very troubled by all that has happened to him and from mother to mother you must understand that when your child falls apart one day and tells you everything we've put on the table you'd be just as worried or irritated as i am, so Ep please calm down and listen to what P has to say" I could tell at this point mum was annoyed and she's smart enough to know that she has the high ground and will get even higher if she doesn't start screeching herself. P given an opportunity to speak, well speaks. P- "Ep as i've said these accusations are serious, and at this point i've no choice to punish your child because you've not said anything so far that'd make me think J and Jess are lying or using Hyperbole, Ek will be suspended for a week, but considering what Jess has said we can send you work booklets so your child doesn't miss anything or doesn't have to catch up, i believe this is fair, is there anything you'd like to add?" .... ............ Ep is not happy i mean her precious little nightmare gets to stay home for a week! how terrible i bet Ek was just devastated. Ep- "NO! I WILL NOT ACCEPT THIS, I WANT J SUSPENDED! HE IS OBVIOUSLY THE PROBLEM IF HE WAS BROUGHT UP PROPERLY LIKE A MAN HE WOULDN'T BE MAKING UP THESE LIES AND EVEN IF IT'S TRUE J'S OBVIOUSLY JUST A LITTLE PUSSY!"
Imagine that, being a pre-teen who thinks the baseball game on Wii sports is the shit being told he's a pussy for being beat on by a bigger older kid, mum wasn't having any of it and i remember her clearly face palming at this, a moment i always think back on for a good laugh.
P- "Ma'am your child is suspended for ONE WEEK and i will now politely ask you to leave the premises and not come near the school till your sons suspension is over otherwise police will be called"
Surprisingly she actually got up and dragged her kid out of the office after what the principal said, i mean she was swearing and screaming all the way but she left. After this I didn't really have many problems with Ek, the principal had our classrooms tweaked and any class he couldn't change i was put alone with an aid, i loved those classes with that aid she was great and i loved the peace outside of a class of 11-12 year olds and we moved way up north on the mainland that same year for unrelated shit. Now you may be thinking what's so sickening? I mean all the Ep knows is her sons a bully and doesn't believe it right, well yeah this is where the story ends for me but my mum and i were talking about this incident over a drink, and she disclosed even more stuff, now this is where i get sick to the stomach. Obviously this is no longer my possibly shite memory but my mums side of this story.
So. My mother had actually called some more meetings with this lady and even once tried to talk to her at ep's own home in private. Mum's just as fiercely defensive of her kids as any Ep maybe more so i bet Ep got her ear ripped off anyway this is what my mum has told me, i'll only do the fun/ infuriating part as the other meetings between my mum, principal and Ep went nowhere not even a single screech from ep apparently.
This part is at Ep's home. My mother, having gone to ep's house decided to disclose the fact i had been harming myself for over a year at that point because of Ep's kid being so brutal, and that i already had possible mental problems and didn't want depression to be on the list to considering i hadn't even hit puberty and therefore wasn't even doing the whole angsty i'm a sad teenager bs. I forgot to mention that my dad (Boom surprise another character in this disjointed story) is a psychologist and so for this private meeting of Love Craftian proportions had filed a pseudo psych report of my mental health for Ep to go over. Apparently Ep wasn't having any part of it and went on a massive tirade about how i'm obviously just as retarded as the aforementioned kid with cerebral palsy, said that i'm self harming for attention and pity and i'm obviously actually trying to bully her kid by getting him in trouble (He started getting in alotta shit around this time cause the kid with Cp had gotten an aid, i would say tard wrangler but he never needed to be wrangled he was a real chill kid and so whenever he tried to give me or my two friends crap the aid wasn't having any of it) Anyway, Ep went on to say that my parents had failed as well parents and that i was a lost cause and deserved to go to juvy or child correctional facilities for 'hurting' her child, that my father was a sexual deviant with all of his female clients which was untrue as all his clients at the time were male and he was well known and respected on the islands community enough that when Ep literally tried to spread this rumour was just laughed at. Ep for the short time we were on the island after her kids first suspension (He got multiple) continued to brew up lies about my parents and myself, going as far to say i regularly spied and molested young girls at the school in the bathroom because i was such a troubled kid and that someone needs to call Child protection services on my parents. Even tried to get me booted from the school with the same lies.
And so ends my story of the most Vile human I've met ever, take this story as you will, i hope you got some enjoyment from this, feels good to expose this lady even more. my mother never went to the law about this because the punishment Ep got from the people around her was enough in my mums eyes. I guess the kid wasn't that entitled just a bully and obviously a product of a really shit mum, I wish him the best in life though cause apparently he's actually a good kid now having moved out at 17 to get away from his mum he's obviously matured, so you go man! You probably know who you are if you read this. Sorry if my story is loose and all over the place or unbelievable but I atleast know it's true.

Notable Moments
The rivalry between the Philadelphia Eagles and New York Giants is the oldest rivalry in the NFC East. The rivalry began in 1933 with the founding of the Eagles, and slowly strengthened when both teams came to relative prominence in the 1940s and 1950s. The two teams have played in the same division in the NFL every year since 1933. The ferocity of the rivalry can also be attributed to the geographic New York-Philadelphia rivalry, which is mirrored in Major League Baseball's Mets–Phillies rivalry and National Hockey League's Flyers–Rangers rivalry. It is ranked by NFL Network as the #1 rivalry of all-time and Sports Illustrated has it among the top ten NFL rivalries of all-time at #4, and according to ESPN, it is one of the fiercest and most well-known rivalries in the football community.
November 20,1960 - The Hit - The Eagles' Chuck Bednarik cleanly blindsided Giants running back Frank Gifford, sending Gifford into an 18-month retirement due to a severe concussion
November 19, 1978 - The Miracle at the Meadowlands - The Giants were leading the Eagles 17-12 with 20 seconds remaining. Offensive coordinator Bob Gibson called for a running play when all that was needed was for the Giants to take a knee. The handoff between quarterback Joe Pisarcik and Larry Csonka was fumbled and Eagles CB Herman Edwards grabbed the loose ball and returned it for the winning score.
November 20, 1988 The Giants hosted the Eagles with both teams in the running for control over their division. The Eagles, led by head coach Buddy Ryan and quarterback Randall Cunningham, fought a tough match to bring the game into overtime with the score tied at 17-17. In overtime, Eagles Defensive End Clyde Simmons carried the ball 15 yards for the game-winning touchdown, after the Giants had blocked a FG attempt. Both teams finished with identical 10-6 records, but the Eagles won the NFC East due to their head-to-head victory, while the Giants lost the wild card tiebreaker to the Los Angeles Rams and missed the playoffs. The Eagles would lose to the Chicago Bears in a game famously known as the Fog Bowl.
October 31, 1999 - The Eagles and Giants were tied at 17-17 in overtime when Eagles QB Doug Pederson had his pass blocked up in the air and was intercepted by Michael Strahan. Strahan returned for a 44-yard touchdown to win the game for the Giants 23-17.
January 7, 2001 - The Giants defeated the Eagles 20-10 in a Divisional Playoff game due to Ron Dixon's 97-yard kickoff return and Jason Sehorn's acrobatic 32-yard interception return. This win would help propel the Giants to Super Bowl XXXV which they ultimately lost to the Baltimore Ravens, 34-7.
December 19, 2010 - Miracle at New Medowlands - The Giants led the Eagles 31-10 with 7:28 left in the first game between the teams at New Meadowlands Stadium where first place in the NFC East was on the line. But the Eagles would rally to tie the score, then win the game on DeSean Jackson's 65 yard punt return for a touchdown with no time left on the clock for a shocking 38-31 victory. The Elias Sports Bureau also believes that this is the first walk-off punt return in NFL history. The Giants went on to miss the playoffs, despite finishing tied for first with the Eagles at 10-6, and the Eagles lost their last two games.
October 12, 2014 - Black Sunday - The Eagles authored the first shutout in the series since a 20-0 loss in 1998, and their first shutout win in the series since 1996, winning 27-0. Quarterback Nick Foles threw for 248 yards and two touchdowns while he and three Eagles backs rushed for 203 yards (led by LeSean McCoy's 149 yards). The Giants failed on a fourth and goal attempt in the third quarter following a Foles interception; even worse, wide receiver Victor Cruz suffered a season-ending injury on the play. Eli Manning was held to 151 yards and backup Ryan Nassib connected for 60 yards.

Since 2008, the Eagles have gone 13-5 (.722) against the Giants, including a Divisional Round playoff victory at the Meadowlands on 1/11/09 (W, 23-11). Philadelphia has won five of its last seven contests vs. N.Y. Giants, including four of its last five since the start of the 2014 campaign.
The Eagles have won two straight games against the Giants at Lincoln Financial Field. Dating back to 2009, Philadelphia has produced a 5-2 (.714) home record vs. N.Y. Giants
The Giants have won eight of their past nine games and can clinch a playoff berth with a win on Thursday. New York can also advance to the postseason with a loss by either Detroit, Atlanta, Green Bay or Tampa Bay. The Giants still have a shot at winning the NFC East and earning home-field advantage throughout the NFC playoffs.
Last week, Carson Wentz scored on a 4-yard run 4 seconds to play, narrowing Baltimore’s lead to 27–26. But Philadelphia head coach Doug Pederson opted for a two-point conversion and the play failed, giving the Ravens a one-point victory. The Eagles were only the fourth team in modern NFL history to miss a conversion after drawing within one point on a touchdown in the game’s final 10 seconds. The most recent was Washington against Tampa Bay in 2010.
The Eagles have outscored the Giants 54-7 ( 47) in the last two games they’ve hosted New York at Lincoln Financial Field.
The Eagles have sacked Giants quarterbacks 11 times in the last two games played in Philadelphia. Eli Manning was sacked six times in the 27-0 Eagles victory in 2014.
Eli Manning’s 15 career losses against the Eagles are his most against any single opponent, as are his 26 career interceptions thrown while playing against the Eagles.
Tonight marks the return of Eagles starting RT Lane Johnson, who had been suspended the last 10 games for a failed PED test. With Johnson on the field, the Eagles are 3-1 this season. Without him? 2-8.
Eagles
QB Carson Wentz owns the team rookie records for pass attempts (540), completions (339), passing yards (3,385) and passing TDs (13). Wentz also owns the highest completion percentage (62.8%) by an Eagles rookie (min. 200 attempts).

The only other players with at least 10 touchdown receptions in each of their first three seasons in the league were WR Bob Hayes (1965–67), WR John Jefferson (1978–80), WR Randy Moss (1998–2000), and TE Rob Gronkowski (2010–12).
Milestones
QB Carson Wentz (3,385 - 17th) can make a move up to 16th place on the Eagles' All-Time Passing Yards list with 341 more passing yards. He will pass QB Sam Bradford (3,725 - 16th) along the way.
QB Carson Wentz (3,385 - 12th) can set the Eagles franchise record for most passing yards in a single season with 532 more passing yards passing out QB Donovan McNabb's (3,916 - 1st) 2008 record. Additionally, 615 more passing yards would make Wentz the first Eagles QB to eclipse 4000 passing yards in a single season.
TE Brent Celek (4,832) needs 168 more yards to reach 5000 career receiving yards.
RB Darren Sproles (18,912 - 8th) is 8th on the NFL's All-Time All-Purpose Yards list. He can move into 7th place with 156 more yards. However, WR Steve Smith Sr. (19,067 - 7th) is currently in 7th place and is still active in the NFL. Sproles (18,912) is 88 All-Purpose Yards away from 19,000 Career All-Purpose Yards.
DE Connor Barwin (30.5 - 15th) is in 15th place on the Eagles All-Time Sack List. Barwin can move into 14th place with 1 more sack joining DE Juqua Parker (31.5 - 14th). Barwin is also 0.5 sacks away from reaching 50 career sacks!
DE Brandon Graham (29.0 - 17th) needs 1.0 Sacks to pass DT Jerome Brown (29.5 - 16th) on the Eagles All-Time Sack List. 1.0 Sacks will also give Graham 30 Career Sacks
DE Fletcher Cox (28.5 - 18th) needs 1.5 Sacks to pass DE Brandon Graham (29.0 - 17th) and DT Jerome Brown (29.5 - 16th) on the Eagles All-Time Sack List. 1.5 Sacks will also give Cox 30 Career Sacks
QB Eli Manning (199) will be playing in his 200th career game.
QB Eli Manning (6,735 - 8th) needs 89 more Passing Attempts to move into 7th place on the NFL's All-Time Passing Attempts list. He would pass HoF QB Warren Moon (6,823 - 7th) along the way.
QB Eli Manning (4,017 - 7th) can move into 6th place on the NFL's All-Time Completion list with 107 more completions and would pass HoF QB John Elway (4,123 - 6th).
WR Victor Cruz (4,458) is currently 10th on the Giant's All-Time Receiving Yards List, but can break into the Top 5 with 388 more receiving yards. He would pass WR Ike Hilliard (4,630 - 9th), WR Hakeem Nicks (4,676 - 8th), WR Chris Calloway (4,710 - 7th), LE Kyle Rote (4,797 - 6th), and SE Homer Jones (4,845 - 5th).
Matchups to Watch
LT Jason Peters Vs. DE Olivier Vernon
The Eagles' offensive line has seen a lot of movement and change this season, with different players shifting to different positions throughout the year. One constant has been Peters on the left side. Peters may be on the other side of 30, but he’s had a consistent year as a pass protector. The Giants paid big money for Vernon as a free agent this offseason, and he’s delivered with 8.5 sacks. Vernon will almost always be lined up against Peters, so expect a great matchup on Thursday.
CB Jalen Mills Vs. WR Odell Beckham Jr.
The Eagles have used a rotation at corner all season long, and they’ve typically tried to keep players on one side of the field during a game, rather than having them shadow certain receivers. So while Beckham will probably face a few different Eagles in coverage, look for the rookie Mills to have his chance to prove himself against Beckham. Mills can help prove himself as a key piece of the defense movie forward by doing his best to slow down his former LSU teammate.
TE Zach Ertz Vs. S Landon Collins
While Ertz seemed hindered by a rib injury for most of the first half of the season, he’s come into his own during the month of December. In the Eagles last three games, Ertz has 25 catches for 271 yards and a touchdown. Meanwhile, Collins has been the defensive MVP for the Giants this season, leading the team with 108 tackles and five interceptions. He was the NFC's Defensive Player of the Month for November. Collins is developing into the ball hawk the Giants were hoping for when they took him in the second round of the 2015 NFL Draft.

The Giants defeated the Lions, 17–6, in a battle of teams that had 9–4 records at the start of play. The Giants have played in the NFL since 1925, the Lions since 1930 (including four seasons in Portsmouth, Ohio, known during that period as the Spartans). This was the first of their 44 regular-season meetings for which both teams had a record at least five games above the .500 mark.
Last week the Giants defeated the Cowboys, 10–7, after Dallas came in with an 11–1 record. Only two other teams in modern NFL history—which is to say since 1933—won consecutive games by holding each opponent to fewer than 10 points, with both victories against teams that were at least five games above .500. The others were San Francisco in 2001 and New England in 2010.
But the Giants also did that in the league’s early years. In 1929, they won a road game against the Frankford Yellow Jackets, 12–0, and then defeated the Yellow Jackets the very next day—yes, you read that right—by a 31–0 score at the Polo Grounds. Frankford had a 9–2–5 record prior to its back-to-back shutout losses.

NBA 1st Q/Half Away team on back-to-back data analysis

The other day, u/p_bio1 brought up a hypothesis that away teams on the second game of back-to-back in the NBA may be worth fading against the spread (ATS), especially in the first quarter or first half. Another user mentioned that betting this system, particularly for lines less than 4 points, has provided favorable results. So, I decided to look into this using the cold hard data of the NBA over the past four seasons.
First, the data I have only contains full game lines, not half and quarter lines. So over the past few days I have manually collected data (27 games->see edits) on NBA full, half, and quarter lines relative to the home team. Using a simple linear model allows predicting the half and quarter lines from the full lines, which results in extremely accurate (Both R2 > 0.98, essentially this is just a straight conversion) linear models with Half = 0.57 * Full - 0.13 and Quarter = 0.34 * Full - 0.13.
Using these spread conversions, I calculated the first half line and first quarter line as well as "days of rest" for home teams and away teams in each NBA game over the past five seasons. Then taking only games in which days of rest for the away team is equal to 0, I looked at how successful this system would be for all games and those in which the line is less than 4 points (I interpret this as full game spread between -4 and +4 for the home team).
I know many people are against "trend-finding" but if there is a simple hypothesis that is backed up by a large quantity of lightly qualified data (i.e. not parsing down the dataset until there is a significant trend like many baseball statistics) then I can get behind it. In this case, the hypothesis requires that the first half and first quarter against the spread should 1) have a success rate over 50% (more if you want to be profitable off of it) and 2) be more successful than the full game spread (since we know the Vegas lines include schedule fatigue for the full lines, we are looking specifically for a trend in the first quarter or first half).
The following table presents the ATS% betting on the home team ATS (fading the away team on the back-to-back) over the past 5 seasons of NBA data. Note that there are becoming less of these games per season (407 in 12-13 to 328 in 16-17) as the NBA looks to limit the amount of scheduling fatigue present in the NBA. The story is slightly different on a season-by-season basis, but for a trend to be worthy, we should use the least amount of qualifiers as possible (and there doesn't appear to be a time element), so I aggregate the past 5 seasons together.
Away B2B L5Y All Threshold = 4
Full Game ATS% 0.494 0.518
First Half ATS% 0.498 0.510
First Quarter ATS% 0.494 0.489
Games 1896 573
So it appears there is not a trend across all games in which an away team is on a back-to-back (first column). The trend also appears to be moving in the opposite direction of what was expected based on the hypothesis. Note that the actual amount of games different between 51.8% and 48.9% is 297 versus 280, not a huge discrepancy over five years. The slightly above 50% numbers for full game and first half look slightly promising, though the threshold of 4 feels arbitrary, so it is hard to conclude anything at this point from these numbers in relation to why the threshold numbers appear better for fading the away team.
EDIT: abs(1st Half Threshold) < 4
Away B2B L5Y All Half Threshold = 4
Full Game ATS% 0.494 0.501
First Half ATS% 0.498 0.504
First Quarter ATS% 0.494 0.486
Games 1896 1138
Also people seem to have concern with the projecting of 1st Half and 1st Quarter lines from the full game lines. Firstly, the very high R2 values indicate the book I use (BetDSI) seems to be using a conversion formula. Secondly, we are only looking at win percentages here, so as long as the predicted value is off by less than 0.5, the win percentages will be the same. But the low sample size is a valid concern, so I added more games, thanks to a resource posted in the comments, so "re-running" the linear models with 101 samples (some BetDSI, some Bovada, which theoretically should hurt the model here), resulted in the following models Half = 0.55 * Full - 0.11 and Quarter = 0.32 * Full - 0.12, both with R2 > 0.98. Note that this change did not change any win percentages by more than 0.001.
Final Edit: I have created a google drive with season-by-season results including profit charts of betting all home teams 1st Half ATS when playing an away team on the second game of a back-to-back, and when only betting teams with 1st half spread value > -4. The google drive is located here.
TL;DR Table contains ATS% of home teams playing a team on 2nd game of back-to-back for full, first half, and first quarter over the past five seasons. There does not appear to be a trend that can be used for beating the book here.

Vision & Patience

Dalvin Cook

... is a back who knows how to read a defense and attack any weakness. He is patient enough to allow his blockers to get out in front but if a cutback lane appears he isn't afraid to hit it immediately. He frequently makes the right read and seems to know where the defense is going before the defense does.

Leonard Fournette

... lacks the vision you want in an elite running back. This was one of my biggest issues with Fournette as a player. He showed decent vision behind man blocking schemes and is more than willing to run outside but he made all the wrong reads in two specific areas. He made the wrong reads behind zone blocking schemes and the wrong reads when pass blocking. His natural vision is decent but he will need to learn and study the game a fair amount before I can comfortably say he has anywhere close to the same vision that the other prospects showed.

Alvin Kamara

...has legitimately bad vision at times. I don't like how hit or miss Fournette's vision can be, but when I compare his vision to Kamara's it really isn't close. Kamara needs to see a full lane in order to actually hit it. He often times ends up running right into a defender that was easily avoidable. His patience is better and when he does see a lane he isn't afraid to burst through. Sometimes he shows great vision and hits a hole right as it appears(see vs. Alabama 2nd play? maybe 3rd or 4th).

Christian McCaffrey

...identifies every hole and knows exactly when to attack. I had to start counting the times he didn't pick the exact moment and hole that I liked instead of counting the times he hit the right area. Over 8 games of tape, I saw 14 times that he didn't hit the exact spot and moment that I wanted him to hit. Easily the best vision and patience among the running backs this year.

Ball Security

Dalvin Cook

...fumbled 14 times. His ball security is one of his biggest on-field weakness. He holds the ball loose and is late to switch the ball and doesn’t brace for impact as frequently as desired. It might stem from his small hands but some basic technical work should help a lot.

Leonard Fournette

... fumbled 7 times but only lost 3(2 in 2016). His ball security is not as concerning as Cook's but it is not great either. His fumbles generally came in ways he couldn't do much to stop the ball from popping out.

Alvin Kamara

...runs with the ball loose and needs to tighten up his form. In the NFL Kamara would have a big fumbling issue if he were to hold the ball in the same manner he did in college. This shouldn’t be a hard thing to fix, however. He does only have 1 fumble(0 in 2016) on 209 attempts though so take the above with a grain of salt.

Christian McCaffrey

The internet has informed me that McCaffrey has fumbled 4 total times in his time at Stanford. That is roughly 0.5% of the times he touched the football.(821 touches including receptions and returns) In comparison, Jonathan Stewart fumbled on 1.2% of his touches in 2015 and 1.33% of his touches in 2016. McCaffrey doesn't have the giant hands of Cam Newton that can take contact from a helmet and not have the ball move a centimeter but he does a good job of keeping the ball away from areas of concern and does a good job bracing the ball correctly when he is hit.

Blocking

Dalvin Cook

...is currently a poor pass blocker. He is a willing blocker though. Cook could become a good enough pass blocker to be a 3-down running back but as of right now he can be used as a guy who gets in the way of defenders.

Leonard Fournette

...is a willing pass blocker and attempted to get in the way. Over his college career, he has steadily gotten better as a pass blocker. He doesn’t have good technique as a blocker but he is effective due to his size and athleticism. Some practice and coaching surrounding identifying pass rushers and reinforcing fundamentals in terms of hand usage would make him a stellar pass blocker.

Alvin Kamara

...isn’t much of a pass protection running back. He is generally used as a receiving threat on pass plays but when he was brought in to protect Dobbs it wasn’t good. He isn’t patient as a blocker and doesn’t know how to use his hands as a blocker either. He also has a hard time identifying blitzing players when brought in to block.

Christian McCaffrey

...is a decent pass blocker. He actually has a hard time restraining himself from going down the field and hitting someone not necessarily rushing when he is kept in to block. He utilizes chop blocks against players that he wouldn't otherwise be able to block and does a good job of standing up against bigger slower pass rushers. He got beat a handful of times as a blocker but there wasn't anything egregious about his blocking, just like there really wasn't anything spectacular.

Long Speed

Dalvin Cook

...has good, not great long speed. He has enough to break long runs but can be caught from behind at times. If he can get to the edge he can pick up plenty of yardage. However, he does get caught from behind at times and will need to use his balance and agility to get away from faster defenders.

Leonard Fournette

...has better long speed than I originally thought. After my first run through of his tape, I wasn't all that impressed with his breakaway runs from a speed standpoint. He seemed to always allow guys to close on him and just generally didn't seem faster than his competition. The second time through I realized that I was looking at it wrong. He has great long speed for a heavier back. His ability to maintain a high speed once he has reached it is great and can get him more than a few extra yards.

Alvin Kamara

…Does not possess great long speed. All five of the running backs being compared are not particularly phenomenal in terms of true long speed. However, they all possess the ability to get to the edge and breakaway. Kamara is an explosive athlete that has a second gear when he does break away.

Christian McCaffrey

...possesses the speed required to burn defenses for huge gains and touchdowns when given the opportunity, but he gets caught from behind on longer runs. His speed is not otherworldly and he does not possess that extra gear to turn a big run into a home run continuously. However, his speed is more than enough to get behind defenders and make them pay for not tracking him.

Balance, Control & Hips

Dalvin Cook

...has elite balance. His ability to cut, slide through holes, and bend without falling is beautiful. He absorbs hits from awkward angles flawlessly and can maintain momentum through contact.

Leonard Fournette

...has good balance and body control but appears to have tight hips at times. Fournette can take a number of hits in a similar fashion to Cam Newton. They both possess great balance and size for their position which allows them to shake off tacklers. Fournette needs to work on his overall body control(not rushing at full height, adjusting his legs based on his next step etc) but that seems to be more of a growing into his body thing and shouldn’t be a problem moving forward.

Alvin Kamara

...is a very fluid athlete. He has flexible hips that allow him to make cuts at almost any angle and he uses great body control to adjust to off-target passes. He can shake off tackles and slip through gaps due to an insane amount of body control.

Christian McCaffrey

...possesses a fluidity that simply can't be taught and you won't find elsewhere in this draft. His body control stems from his flexible hips, superior balance, and lower body power. He can transition from a backpedal to a sprint without any lost motion and he can make a turn on a dime at nearly full speed. Furthermore, his ability to absorb impacts from different angles and maintain his balance is astonishing.

Power

Dalvin Cook

...is not a power back. He has enough power to break tackle attempts by some DBs but he is not a downhill runner at all. His frame is likely close to being maxed out and I don't think he can add any more power than he currently has.

Leonard Fournette

This is where Fournette really shines. Fournette is a true blue power back who is built to run between the tackles and play old school smash mouth football. He frequently breaks tackles by using his size and power.

Alvin Kamara

...isn’t really considered a power back. He can get yardage up the middle but he isn’t strong enough to move the pile. He definitely relies on converting speed to power to make an impact as a downhill runner.

Christian McCaffrey

...is not a powerful running back. He can get stood up easily and if he is hit directly the defender has a good chance to bring him down. The 20-year-old simply does not possess enough power to be a true power back, instead, he needs to attack stacked boxes using zone reads and screens. His lower half is insanely strong but does not produce enough power to move piles. This may be due to a somewhat upright running style or it may just be a symptom of his weight and frame.

Agility & Burst

Dalvin Cook

... has great explosion and overall agility. His combine results did not represent the type of explosion I saw on film. Cook relied on his ability to cut faster than his competition to force missed tackles.

Leonard Fournette

My opinion on his agility has changed after the second run-through of his tape. On tape, he seemed to have slow feet that had a hard time catching up with the rest of him in and out of cuts. However, if you watch the opening game of 2016 and some of his 2015 tape where he clearly isn't injured he cuts much better and has better short area quickness.

Alvin Kamara

…’s agility is second only to McCaffrey and his burst is second to no-one. He explodes out of cuts and through gaps. When a cut back lane appears(and he sees it) he is gone. Furthermore, defenders who try to tackle him in the open field need to have great discipline and tackling technique because if they don’t they will lose Kamara almost instantly.

Christian McCaffrey

...will go from almost a stand still/light jog to instant full speed through a gap. His speed off his first step is flawless and truly special. This brings about his open field ability. His hips, vision and burst all combine to make it insanely hard for defenders to take him down in the open field. Against a defense with a number of NFL caliber players in Washington he made more than a few of them, including Sidney Jones, look useless.

Route Running

Dalvin Cook

Was a poor route runner to start his college career. In 2016 he showed pretty big improvement in the area. Cook has the ability to attack the flats and has the fluidity to be a good route runner but he hasn't capitalized on it yet. Moving forward if his team expects him to be a receiving threat he will need to improve his routes, which he should be able to.

Leonard Fournette

As of right now, I don't really know what to say about Fournette's route running. There were moments against Alabama that he very clearly did not turn his hips enough and made poor cuts/breaks but there were other times that he looked more smooth. Because being a pass catcher hasn't really been Fournette's role it is hard to determine what he is capable of.

Alvin Kamara

Kamara’s route tree isn’t huge but he possesses the athletic ability to become a phenomenal route runner. He makes good breaks and can misdirect corners fairly well as is. Kamara was used a lot in the passing game but they mostly threw short/screen passes to him in an effort to get him into the open field faster.

Christian McCaffrey

As mentioned above McCaffrey has fluid hips and a ridiculous amount of burst out of cuts. These two traits general make wide receivers near unstoppable. McCaffrey is not refined as a route runner but he possesses the athletic abilities required to be a elite route runner. When he did run routes they were decently crisp and he always found a way to create separation.

Hands & Catching Technique

Dalvin Cook

...has a bad case of the drops due to small hands. Cook attacks the ball and does okay high pointing it but his catching ability is not phenomenal.

Leonard Fournette

...has decent hands overall. Against Alabama, Fournette got caught looking up field before the ball got to him. He also has a hard time adjusting to overthrown balls. However, he can go and get low balls and catches with his hands. I would like to see him extend and try to high point the ball but overall his hands are worth developing. Fournette has the worst hands out of the five backs, dropping 3 passes(~15% of catchable passes) in 2016.

Alvin Kamara

…has good hands. Kamara was often used in the passing game and rarely dropped passes. He catches away from his body and usually attacks the ball.

Christian McCaffrey

...attacks the ball in the air. He possesses the hand-eye coordination of a pro baseball player and uses it to pluck the ball out of the air. He caught a botched snap that was meant to be for his QB and turned it into a 15 yard gain. Similarly, he caught a pass that was almost at his feet, behind him and near full speed without showing any real effort.

Scheme Fit

Dalvin Cook --- West Coast/Zone

Cook would fit best in a spread style offense that allows him to attack the edges and keeps the defense guessing. He is a receiving and rushing threat who is not a great downhill runner. An offense that finds ways to get the ball to him in space is exactly what he needs.

Leonard Fournette --- PoweZone

Fournette is a powerful running back who loves to make people pay for trying to tackle him. His best fit would be a power-based run game that asks him to pound the rock down the middle or a PoweZone hybrid that doesn’t ask him to make a lot of decisions, allowing him to just run.

Alvin Kamara --- West Coast/Power

Kamara has just enough power to do okay in a hybrid style offense. The ideal situation for him would be an offense similar to the Chiefs that asked Charles to pound the rock and then split out and make a play on 3rd down.

Christian McCaffrey --- Name an offensive system

McCaffrey is easily the most versatile weapon on the offensive side of the ball(besides maybe Joe Mixon). As such he would be useful in just about any offensive scheme. He doesn’t possess the power to be a goal line back but he possesses the power required to plunge downhill when need be. An offense that utilizes him to create mismatches is the ideal location for him.

Ranking

Overall

Christian McCaffrey - Just the all around best offensive weapon.
Leonard Fournette - His rushing ability is the best by a mile. However, his ability to help in the passing game is too much of an unknown at this point to really put him at the top.
Alvin Kamara - Kamara has the least amount of wear and has the best explosive potential. We may look back on him as a “why didn’t he go before the other running backs” type of guy depending on where he lands.
Dalvin Cook - His off-field issues overshadow his insane abilities. Combine that with poor workouts and I’m not sure what to expect from Cook.

Fit with Panthers

Dalvin Cook

Not happening. His off-field issues are more than enough to disqualify him. Furthermore, the Panthers rely on a strong power back that can run downhill and carry defenders. Cook simply isn't that.

Leonard Fournette

Is exactly what they want in a running back from a size, speed, athleticism, blocking standpoint. If he can figure out how to mimic Stewart’s ability to break tackles as he is being handed the ball then the sky is the limit for Fournette. His vision is not as great as the other backs but he has shown enough natural vision to say that he could learn to read zone plays.

Alvin Kamara

Would likely not fit the Panthers current offensive scheme. From a talent perspective, he would be a great get at 40 overall and could be part of the evolution of the offense that is supposed to happen.

Christian McCaffrey

Is such an insanely versatile weapon. If he was used mainly as a receiver then he could step in immediately. He also fits the scheme the Panthers love to use as a rusher. The main problem is he doesn’t possess the power that Fournette or Stewart do.

Ranking for the Panthers

Rank Player Note
1. Leonard Fournette I bet you didn’t expect me to put him here.
2. Christian McCaffrey Still my favorite offensive player in the draft but the power and # of touches he has already had is a concern.
3. Alvin Kamara Secretly hoping they take him because that would mean the offense is being revamped.

Last notes:

Sorry, this took so long. I had it 90% done on Thursday and then my computer freaked out and I had to redo half of it.
I was going to include Joe Mixon who I think is the best RB in the draft talent wise but out of laziness, I decided not to since he has too many off-field issues to come to Carolina.
