Ja'Marr Chase blames drops on lack of concentration

Ja'Marr Chase blames drops on lack of concentration

SASshampoo

I feel bad that he is blaming himself when it’s my fault. I shouldn’t have drafted him. I’m so sorry


ScreamingButtholes

It’s okay I’ll bench him week 1 to teach him a lesson and get him back on track


glassfloor11

What’ll really do the trick is to sell him for a 3rd.


Apocalypso_MTG

Atm hes in my Taxi until he stops the drops. Need that rosterspot for my dartthrow waiverpicks (Pringle and Harris from the saints)


Juuless_Joe_Jackson

Not mocking you. Just curious. What do you like from those two guys? Possible upside as the Chiefs 4th option behind Kelce, Hill, and Clyde doesn’t interest me unless I have a very deep roster


3ULL

I am calling it now, 4 TD's week 1 on your bench then you start him the rest of the season while he is catching 3 passes for 23 yards. :)


ParaNormalBeast

How tf could you


nubianjoker

He’s a monster


Dead-EyeDuck

I laughed pretty good at this.


basedgrizzly

I’ve never seen the preseason impact the perception of a player this much.


hawksfn1

ESpecially one who everyone spent 2 years fawning over


jack121013

I mean they were fawning over him because he caught everything.


HankChinaski-

Definitely just this sub and a few dynasty podcasters. I enjoy and use this sub weekly, but it is an echo chamber of love or hate on certain players. Often for little reason.


BlueMerleShelties

I'm old enough to remember Larry Fitzgerald's rookie season. It was worse than this. He failed to break 800 yards despite Boldin missing 6 games and a lot of people thought he would never become the alpha over Boldin.


Pho_King_Noodle

Damn your old


DynastyDawgs

I still remember Boldin's breakout game against Detroit his rookie year, dude was insane.


bayareatrojan

It's this sub and Twitter. Social media is good for no one.


Tb11

It's just this sub lol


Cifra00

My theory is that reddit's upvote/downvote system really amplifies it. Pulling numbers out of my ass, if going into the draft 52% of people in this sub loved Chase and 48% wanted wanted pump the brakes, then Chase love would bubble to the top and Chase hate would sink. If a shaky preseason scares off a small chunk of Chase fans, then the tide shifts, and Chase caution rises to the top, probably with a tinge of salt from being downvoted for the opinion for months. Signed, salty dude who had Chase as WR3 in this class lol


larzito101

If he catches it he’ll stop dropping it


JohnSterlingSanchez

Wherever you go, there you are


karmaisreplaceable

Some people don't think it be the way that it is, but it do


scrooplynooples

It always makes sense if you don’t think about it


Lilcheeks

Gotta get that Adderall exception


1stepklosr

All jokes aside, this is pretty reassuring. *“If you look back at it, I jumped in the air when the ball got to me,” Chase said. “That means my eyes weren’t concentrated on the ball. I didn’t keep still. So that makes my eye adjustment for the ball move around.”* So he knows exactly what he was doing wrong and has been working to fix it. Something coachable and fixable. I'm not worried at all.


[deleted]

He should try concentrating.


ParaNormalBeast

I’m more of a fresh squeezed guy myself


bundleogrundle

My best friend is best friend’s with Chase. He said Chase is dropping everything on purpose so no one sees it coming when Burrow gets sacked the most in the league next year.


Mercurycandie

What I'm reading is that your best friend has a best friend that's not you, sorry bro


bundleogrundle

How do you think he feels when he realizes he’s a side piece too


Mercurycandie

It's unrequited social investment all the way down


PreparationStock2718

🤔


rubbabandbusiness

What?


bundleogrundle

You heard it here first


x_Happy_x

Did anyone else read this as "Ja'Marr Chase blames drops on lack of connection"


BuckDestiny

Verizon just signed him


HodorsSoliloquy

"Can you catch me now?"


pkallday945

"Catch me if you can!" -Football


rosecitypeach

I did not know the NFL ball was ~1.25 inches bigger in circumference compared to the college ball. Hand size matters, folks.


BlueMonkeyBlueMonkey

It's not really hand size here but the feel for the football even a slight change is noticed. But he took a whole year off so if he wasn't catching NFL balls thats on him


rosecitypeach

It definitely seems like an oversight to work with the wrong balls lol


Jericcho

Tbf, Chase's hands are bigger than Smith, Waddle, Bateman and Justin Jefferson's. The only receivers drafted in the first two rounds who had bigger hands are the two TEs.


rosecitypeach

And Marshall


Jericcho

TMJ was measured at LSU at 9 1/2 inch Chase was also measured at LSU at 9 5/8. I think they are realistically a push.


scrooplynooples

Hey... that extra 1/8 inch matters. *Trust me*.


_BigT_

Davante Adams has small hands and just put up one of the best points/game WR seasons ever. It's also been debunked on here through large data analysis too. Still crazy the ball is that much bigger though.


aw2442

Maybe he should go to concentration camp


Hobbes_87

I'm sure DeSean Jackson can recommend a good one.


0wIix

I did Nazi that coming


cheif_hippo88

I did nazi that coming Anne Frankly I am fuhrerious


piGzRetro

Oof


SameGenericUsername

Lol south park


JavaLoops

SELL! SELL! SELL!


x_Happy_x

TO ME! TO ME! TO ME!


PreparationStock2718

I did, couldn't be happier!


LookinStr8Grizzly

What did you get back?


PreparationStock2718

2022 and 2023 1sts


JavaLoops

I'd sell for two firsts if someone came at me with that.


DynastyFF2021

Wow


newfantasyballer

Exactly what I thought. Taco move?


DynastyFF2021

Not necessarily, they could be mid-late firsts. But IMO for sure an overpay.


newfantasyballer

There’s not a good way to know if the 2023 is mid or late. It’s at best an educated guess. Even this year there’s only so much certainty.


grrrimabear

Early or late?


LastPlaceGuaranteed

Eh... It's all coachable and fixable. I'm not worried about Chase... ​ ​ ...Because I traded him for Pitts a couple weeks ago and he's someone else's problem now.


FFAddik

Just rusty for not playing a whole szn & just needs to get his confidence. He’ll be alright…I’m actually putting in some low ball trades for him..,lol


ConferenceLoud7035

I blame it on him sucking


dbreeezy

Sounds like his hands got the vaccine


Tb11

what does this even mean lmao


dbreeezy

His hands are protected against catching the ball.


Substantial-Team600

Fourth round pic hopefully it pays off


Jaymongous

64 man league?


litigatorlife

Bro what are you saying unless you’re talking about a rookie draft I would not be taking him in the 4th at all


scrooplynooples

He means start up


litigatorlife

Even worse


GETMONEYGETPAlD

4th round is exactly his ADP in start ups and not even a bad spot imo. Next receivers taken are Aiyuk and Jeudy and I’m drafting Chase over both of them 100%


litigatorlife

Man hasn’t played since 2019 has been atrocious thus far and has accusations of abuse from his pregnant girlfriend - but okay toss up


GETMONEYGETPAlD

Actually in a game in 2020 he went for 9/221/2 lol. I’m not saying he isn’t high risk but the risk/reward ratio is about right for where he’s going in startups.


litigatorlife

The 2019 season are you referring to January 13 game?


GETMONEYGETPAlD

You said he hasn’t played since 2019. He played in 2020, yes, on Jan 13


litigatorlife

Ahh okay so pedantic aside he hasn’t played since the 2019 season.


Wildcat-Jim

All that IG baby mama drama.


lib___

Sounds not like blaming but owning his mistakes


FullTimeFFWannabe

Separation anxiety stressing him out 🤷‍♂️


pineapplesurfwax

Ya think? I blame things falling on gravity


JayBird9540

That’s a bad head space NGL, Cincy has too many mouths to feed for someone to be down bad on their selves.


BobbyBBott

Hi I’m jamar chase, I beat my girlfriends and waddle and smith will be better then me
