  1. LAC is such a high-value backfield that I’m wondering if Ballage is still one of the better playoff stashes. He could potentially return to the role Joshua Kelley had early in the year even when Ekeler was healthy, which was valuable. And then if Ekeler were to get banged up again obviously his potential value rockets. The issues are that he’s in competition with Kelley and maybe Justin Jackson if/when he comes back for any of those roles. Ballage was getting work clearly ahead of Kelley recently, but not sure if that sticks.
  2. I kinda think he’s a drop. Houston’s backfield just doesn’t produce top-end production and the efficiency and effectiveness of the entire offense takes a hit without Fuller. Maybe that means more volume for the backs but even if that’s the case we’re likely just back where we started. David is supposedly back and healthy. I think even if he went down again in the next few weeks Duke becomes what he just was...sort of a low ceiling, back-end RB2 type based on volume alone, but one who may have ceded GL touches to Prosise so his floor isn’t even that stable. I don’t think he’s someone you’ll be
  3. Ah, you took OBJ and JuJu at the turn last year too, huh? It's ok man, it's in the past. Cheer up.
  4. Need to pick two of the following players to fill out my flexes in .5 PPR: -Kenyan Drake vs. LAR -Dede Westbrook vs. TB -LeSean McCoy vs. OAK -Benny Snell Jr. vs. CLE My playoff life is on the line. I need to outscore another team by 33 points, which is a moderate amount so I do need to aim for a little bit of ceiling I think.
  5. In games he was healthy last year he averaged 17.6 fantasy PPG. We saw what the upside of this offense is in weeks 1-3. He's a back-end QB1 with upside for more, especially with how dreadful the defense and running game are.
  6. There is a difference between rooting for something and forecasting something. Personally I like Fitzpatrick a lot and think Winston is a scumbag. It would be a great story if Fitzpatrick held the job and took this team to the playoffs. But if I'm forecasting what is likely to happen? I think it's likely that TB turns back to Jameis, maybe as soon as Week 6 if they lose to Chicago. 400 yards is great for fantasy football. I don't think it's something that prevents the Bucs from making a switch. If they think Jameis is a better QB (he probably is) or that they need to figure out if
  7. Better to get this news now than to keep holding in vain for several more weeks.
  8. Andre Ellington has been waived. I have no idea if that has anything to do with DJ's impending return, but I suppose it's as relevant as anything being discussed as we wait for real news.
  9. You folks realize he's WR11 in PPG even including the dud against New Orleans? WR scoring is down across the whole league. He's still a strong WR1 and the only player he's clearly behind ROS is Antonio Brown.
  10. I'm seriously consider picking him up and so I'm not trying to rain on anyone's parade at all, but I do think it's worth keeping in mind that Tony Romo tried to rush back from a broken collarbone in 2015 and promptly re-broke it almost immediately. I don't know the specifics of his injury as compared to Aaron's, but it seems reasonable to expect there would be some level of elevated risk with him if he does rush back for Week 15.
  11. Packers coach Mike McCarthy said Aaron Rodgers (collarbone, injured reserve) is making "really good progress." "I know the training staff and the strength and conditioning staff are very pleased with where he is," McCarthy said. "He's moving right along." After getting in some rehab work on the field Wednesday, it looks like Rodgers is on track to return when first eligible in Week 15.
  12. Jameis is in the QB1 convo as long as he's healthy. Every dud he posted this year can be traced back to the injury IMO...he missed 3/4 of the Arizona game, and then played through that injury for 2.5 more weeks. He slayed in the Buffalo game but he was clearly off against Carolina and New Orleans, and then was benched in the second half of the latter. In the four games before the injury he was averaging over 18 PPG. There is no indication that he won't return this season. The worst speculation seems to be that it will take him 3-4 weeks to recover rather than 1-2. That would put h
  13. Thoughts on this guy rest of season? After the bye: 12- TEN 13- @JAX 14- @BUF 15- DEN 16- @BAL That looks like a rough slate on the surface, but aside from the JAX game, is it really that foreboding? Buffalo has fallen off in recent weeks, and the only QB Denver has held under 13 fantasy points this year is Eli Manning. Baltimore has been second best in the NFL behind JAX at limiting QBs, but they've faced an awful lot of terrible ones (Kizer/Hogan, Manuel, Trubisky, Moore). The reasonable-to-good QBs they've limited include Roethlisberger (might be
