  1. In need of Darius Slayton to put up 20.05pts to continue the winning streak after starting 0-4 due to a devastatingly ravaged line-up.

    That's like...

    7-90-1ish in my league.

    With both Shepard and Tate back, along with the nagging foot issue he's been managing over the past couple weeks, my confidence in his ability to garner victory for the squad tonight is shook.

     

    We'll need one those longgg Danny Dimes to Darius Slayton TDs to have a chance. 

    Best Wishes to All in your quest to Victory.

    49ers' Deebo Samuel: Dealing with illness

    Samuel didn't practice Thursday due to an illness, Nick Wagoner of ESPN.com reports.

    After spending more than three months in recovery mode following June surgery to address a Jones fracture in his left foot, Samuel made his season debut this past Sunday in Miami. He played 34 percent of the snaps on offense en route to three catches (on three targets) for 35 yards and one carry for 10 yards. On a positive note, Samuel didn't appear on Wednesday's injury report, indicating the foot issue is behind him. That said, he's come down with an illness of unknown severity, placing a cloud over his Week 5 availability.

    Any reports/indications that Deebo's snap-count rises? Would imagine it increases significantly -- that along with Garoppolo's return should see Deebo have a decent game.

    What's the source for Berrios being most likely out? I only seen reports stating questionable. I'm asking because I actually might throw a dart at this guy if Jeudy is a no go, my WRs are decimated.

    Have no source -- injured the hamstring in yesterday's practice. I guess he could play. Have wait to see.

    [KJ Hamler should be in play if Jeudy sits]

  4. Keep in mind last week Sam Darnold threw both Chis Hogan and Braxton Berrios (know him??) 8 Targets each -- another guy off the practice squad named Josh Malone had 6 Targets.

    -Hogan signed with the Jets mid-August when WRs were dropping in camp -- he has been limited at practice with a rib injury

    - Berrios is a returner and WR5/6 at best, who injured his hamstring, is labeled as questionable and is most likely Out

    - Malone is another Practice Squad guy elevated for the game then returned

     

    So...

    WR1: Jamison Crowder OUT

    WR2: Breshad Perriman OUT

    WR3: Denzel Mims OUT

    WR4: Chris Hogan (ribs - limited) 

    WR5: Braxton Berrios Most Likely Out - Hamstring

    WR6: Josh Malone (Practice Squad)

    WR7: Lawrence Cager (Active and Ready)

     

    Opportunities.

  5.  

    Officially Up -- again, this is a let's watch to see (unless in need of a Hail Mary play), and not someone anyone is 'hyping' as suggested above.

    He should see opportunities -- let's see what he does with them.

    [wouldn't shock me to see him play well -- redzone fade for TD perhaps]

  6. Every year I try to never participate in this tread - don't need that kind of negative energy surrounding my squad - however 2020 has in many ways been like no other...

     

    With that said, this is my new backfield...

    ___New Backfield______________Drafted Backfield____

    RB1: Joshua Kelley                       RB1: Saquon Barkley IR

    RB2: Mike Davis                           RB2: Le'Veon Bell IR

    RB3: Jeff Wilson Jr.                      RB3: Marlon Mack IR

    RB4: J.K. Dobbins                        RB4: J.K. Dobbins 

    RB5: La'Mical Perine

    2020

    Canceled

    I want to believe this lol - do you think he's a better start, in general, than comp guys like Boyd, CeeDee, Gallup, and all these other similar tier WRs?

    Believe Slayton and the above WRs are all pretty close -- I want to be cautious in saying cause I'm going against one of those guys and don't want to jinx it. I'm crazy.

    However, I take Slayton's upside in opportunities over the others -- lots of mouths in Dallas.

    Just one man's opinion.

    Just reviving this. We've had a blow-up and a disappearance. Which I think is what we'll get from him all season: high ceiling low floor. Makes me not want to let him go, but I'll be scared any week I have to start him. Do we hope for another big game or two then look to sell?

    Slayton's arrow is shooting up and is one of the few WRs I have complete confidence in now that the running game is in shambles without Saquon AND Shepherd being out for extended time -- believe he'll consistently put up solid games, mixed in with blow-up games the rest of the way.

    Easy Top 20 Finish.

     

    The Giants new identity is Danny-Dimes to Darius Slayton.

    [throwing team, playing from behind most of the season...Slayton is someone you want on your Squad]

  9. Posted this in the Week 3 WW Thread for desperate owners in deep leagues, prompting making this thread when I saw he didn't have one.

     

     

     

    Guaranteed you'll be able to grab Lawrence Cager -- 6-5 Georgia Product Jets Fans have been clamoring to get on the field.

    Excited to see what he does with the opportunity -- he will get a chance on Sunday.

    Well, hello there Mr. Hamler.

    Did you think I did not notice your 7 targets from Jeff Driskell last week?

    I see you Mr. Hamler 👀

     

    ⬆️This along with Sutton being out for the season had me jumping to the waiver -- now with Jeudy listed as a Game-Time Decision, I believe KJ confidently slides into the Flex/WR3 territory. Definitely a hot add in the upcoming week.

    Indeed Hamler-Time  🔨

    Any Jets' fans here with their ears to the local beat? Are we anticipating him getting more opportunities and eating into Gore's workload?

     

    He seemed to have a good performance, albeit very limited, in his first action of the season. 

     

    As a Jets Fan I've been anticipating this as Perine gets healthy -- Le'Veon owners who may have been forced to pick up Gore might want to make the proactive add.

    I'm considering it at this very moment.

    Anyone heard anything? It’s strangely quiet. Heard good things about Love during camp, AP gets cut, Rivera talking about Love being a 3 down back, etc. We were told he was still a few weeks away, but they obviously kept him around for a reason. Could this be a situation where they give hime plenty of time, no need to rush, then one of these weeks they’re going to say “he’s ready”, activate him, and he immediately looks awesome?
     

    He’s only got Gibson, Barber, and McKissic ahead of him. No offense to Gibson owners, but if (and that’s a big if) Love returns to his form from a couple years ago he would immediately be the best RB on the roster. If they didn’t think he was worth waiting for, why would they wait for him? They must know something, or they would just cut him and move on at this point....right? 
     

    Yes, I’m searching for diamonds in the rough, but if/when we see “Bryce Love is active”, he could very quickly become a valuable fantasy asset. More so than many of the bench stashes we’re currently holding.

    I can't shake the same exact thoughts on Bryce Love -- maybe it's losing my top three RBs to IR in the first two weeks, and I'm trying to make my thoughts manifest into reality, but I too am waiting for that "Bryce Love is active" call.

     

    Will be paying close attention👀
