Of the pairs of players below, which player will do you believe will produce more (statistically) during the 2014 season? Try to take in account all stats pertaining to their positional group and just generally average them off to who is more "productive by season's end". My choices are in bold.
Jonathan Stewart vs. DeAngelo Williams
Kelvin Benjamin vs. Greg Olsen
Ed Dickson vs. Brandon Williams
Mike Tolbert vs. Cam Newton (on the ground/rushing)
Charles Johnson vs. Greg Hardy
Dwan Edwards vs. Kawann Short
AJ Klein vs. Chase Blackburn
Melvin White vs. Bene Benwikere
Hardy (In terms of sacks, I think CJ will be the better overall DE)
What criteria were you using and if we have so many do you mind naming them and their respective position?
Essentially, we all named players on the roster, and if the majority of us agreed that that player could legitimately be argued as top 10 at their position, we put them on the list. It was two Broncos fans, a Falcons fan, Steelers fan, Raiders fan, and myself. So it made it interesting.
As far as our blue chips go;
Deangelo WIlliams (This one was the hardest to argue honestly, but we eventually agreed)
I was having a conversation with some friends, and we were debating the "blue chip players" on each team, and were attempting to use that to predict how well they would do next season. We went through each teams and counted up how many players on that team could be legitimately argued for top 10 at their respective positions. The numbers might surprise you.
Nine blue chip players:
Eight blue chip players:
Seven blue chip players:
Six blue chip players:
Five blue chip players:
Four blue chip players:
Three blue chip players:
Every other team ended up with two or less.
Of course, as you all know, stars can rise any day and become a blue chip player. Also, qb play can make a huge difference on if your blue chips count, but it is an interesting topic none the less.
Another reason to not be worried is amount of "Blue Chip" players we have on our roster, blue chip of course meaning, someone who can be argued top 10 in their position within reason, or at least, that is general argument.
We have a whopping seven blue chip players, SEVEN. Just for some perspective.
New Orleans: 5
New England: 4
San Francisco: 8
It is going to be alright, we have a diverse core, CALM DOWN.
