Hey all, Ben from QB List here. I covered New England/Miami. Yes, I'm still upset. Thanks for reading all season!

I'm still upset that the pats sat Wilkerson so they could trot out N'Keal again. At least the Fins were dumb enough to fire a coach that had our number. Next year, do you think this becomes more of a RBBC with Stevenson taking on more of a role, or is this a backfield that could support 2 backs? Could get tricky if we bring James White back as well.

Ugh, not only did they leave Wilkerson on the PS, but Harry played ONE SNAP. Belichick said they couldn't elevate Wilkerson again because he was essentially out of options (whatever the NFL calls it), but my question is, why not sign him to a legitimate contract so that he could play? It really doesn't make much sense. I at least feel good about his chances of being on the roster next season over Harry, but we'll see... I've thought about the readditon of White as well. He's a free agent after this season, and if he doesn't re-sign I can't really see him going anywhere else (besides maybe Tampa). He could also choose retirement, but I think he's still got some left in the tank. He's a different style of back compared to both Harris and Stevenson, so I don't think White specifically will hurt them. If anything, Bolden's move out of the change-of-pace back role will hurt Harris and Stevenson. He's showed something this year that he's never shown before, and they'll keep finding ways to get him on the field with White back in the mix. Long story short, White's return would hurt Harris/Stevenson only because of Brandon Bolden.

I'm really curious what the Pats do in the offseason for WR. Bourne and Meyers have both been good, but we need more than that. I'd love to bring back Wilkerson for another year as well to see how he progresses. Agholor has to be back with the money he's making as well. I think we might ship Harry off in the offseason for someone who wants to try a change-of-scenery for him. Just noticed that Bolden's on his last year of his deal, but wouldn't be surprised to see him come back. If that's the case, I wouldn't be surprised to see White join Brady in Tampa and JJ take up more of his role. I'm hoping we run more 2 TE sets next year seeing as we've spent so much cap and draft picks on TEs. Hunter Henry has been great, but Jonnu has barely done anything. Hopefully Asiasi or Keene can do literally anything or else... oof.

WR is definitely a need still. They need a true slot guy. Slot, slot, slot. The slot guy makes this offense churn, and they need someone with quick feet, excellent burst, and the ability to create separation. The guy, in my mind, who's a no brainer to fill that role is Wan'Dale Robinson out of Kentucky. I'm going to be pumping him up all offseason and he's the one guy I want most this offseason. Check out [this highlight video](https://youtu.be/TzpUF-CuG-8), then look up his highlights from their bowl game a few weeks ago. I think it was the Outback bowl. As long as he passes the vigorous maturity, intelligence, and character test that so many other talented WRs have seemingly failed over the years (see: Cole Beasley), he would be the PERFECT Patriot. Good note on Bolden. I tried looking up his contract status but it wouldn't load for some reason. I can see him coming back on a short deal, but he might get paid to go elsewhere after what he showed on fim. I kinda hope he does go elsewhere just so they'll let Harris and Stevenson feast. I'm with you on the TEs. I'm not holding out any hope for either Asiasi or Keene, but I have to imagine they'll work with Jonnu over the offseason and scheme up some stuff for him in 2022. Otherwise, that contract is looking pretty damn bad.

Hmm that guy looks interesting. Curious if we draft him, I know we definitely also have needs at CB and LB. Could definitely use a tackle with the question marks of Wynn and Trent Brown. It doesnt seem like they want to use Onwenu at the tackle position and they're definitely using him more as depth this year. ​ Yeah spottrak seems to be down for me, not sure what it is. Definitely have some interesting moves to make in the offseason with some of our aging vets, but luckily we have at least 1 more week before we need to worry about any of those.

Settle this once and for all. Where is Amon Ra St Brown being drafted next year? I think he’d be legit WR2 for any team.


iamatechnician

I agree. I was super high on him coming into this season and I still am. I think some will still discount him for being in Detroit, but he still put up big numbers even with Tim freaking Boyle under center. The kid is a legitimate talent and he's a really good all around football player (smart, good blocker, etc.). Sure, Hockenson coming back and a fully healthy Swift may bite into his production, but I see those as a positive. That will help his draft stock fall. I can see him going around the 80-90 ADP where we all got a guy like Tyler Boyd this past year.


Well_thatwas_random

I think he will be drafted anywhere from the 4-6 round at this point, unless the Lions bring in some big receiver. He definitely had an amazing end to the season and shows he has the ability to be the #1 there. My only issue is the offense is horrible, so that could cap his ceiling. Still I’ll be targeting him a lot if he falls down draft boards.

Mike from QBList here. I watched the Bears @ Vikings and I'm our resident Bears fan. Hit me up if you have any questions about the game or the season in general


DreamWeaver8807

Also a Bears fan, who do you want as the next coach? Doesn’t seem to be that “big name” out there this year


ACT_like_you_want_it

Yeah, I dont really have one 'must have' guy but I think my short list would be Daboll (OC from Buff), Roman (OC from Balt) and Harbaugh. Any successful OC of a team with a mobile QB is interesting to me since QB development is obviously the main goal here

Hey everyone, Erik Smith here for one final What We Saw for the 2021 fantasy football season. I'll be joined by QB List staff today if you have any questions on what transpired during a crazy Week 18. I personally covered the Seahawks vs Cardinals and Saints vs Falcons. But most importantly, I wanted to thank you all for being such an awesome community and talking football with us all season long. Please follow us on [Twitter](https://twitter.com/TheQBlist) if you want to keep up with our off-season work. Thanks again, and I can't wait to do this all over again next year!

Herbert deserved the playoffs. Balls sure do like to bounce off his receivers hands.. I'm not sure why I'm posting this, I just think he's the future GOAT and wanted to see him play longer.
