Jimmy Garoppolo – Quarterback – San Francisco 49ers
In 2018, in his first season in California, Jimmy Garoppolo did well in the first three games, but a knee injury ended his campaign prematurely. Back in health, the pivot of 27 years does not seem to be the same anymore. In three preseason games, he completed only 59.5% of his passes.
A.J. Green – Receiver – Bengals of Cincinnati
At the age of 31, A.J. Green slowed down a bit, and he also missed seven games in 2018. The receiver of the assists could also miss the first appointments of this campaign.
Peyton Barber – Ball carrier – Tampa Bay Buccaneers
Without being exceptional, Peyton Barber had accumulated a constant number of points in a pool in recent years. Unfortunately, this will not happen again in 2019. The Buccaneers would intend to trust Ronald Jones II more in paying situations.
David Njoku – Close Ailler – Cleveland Browns
At times, David Njoku looks like Rob Gronkowski, but most of the time he misses easy passes. Its inconstancy makes Baker Quarterback Quarterback not really trust him.
Derrick Henry – Ball carrier – Tennessee Titans
Currently an injured ankle, Derrick Henry may well have a disappointing season even though he is recovering quickly. The Titans have lost big chunks on their offensive line. A situation that will not favor Henry.
Brandin Cooks – Receiver – Rams of Los Angeles
Brandin Cooks has always been and will remain a player who needs a big game to pay in a pool. In the Rams, he is the third target, behind receivers Robert Woods and Cooper Kupp.
Todd Gurley II – Ball carrier – Los Angeles Rams
Todd Gurley II was very good for the poolers in 2018, but the story should not be repeated in 2019. The wearer was ineffective in the last playoffs because of a knee injury, and it looks like this still not resolved. Gurley could miss several games this season. It is therefore to be avoided in the first rounds of your auction!
