  1. IMO Zeke's passing game usage/role this week was dictated by the oline issues coming in as well as the Bucs stout front 7. The cowboys didn't know for certain if Collins was going to play and they didn't have Martin. As a result, Zeke was asked to pass protect all game long. In the 4 full games the cowboys had with Dak last year Zeke had 5, 7, 12 and 8 targets. The stat I most care about from yesterday was Zeke's snap rate, which was 80%. The circumstances yesterday were just the perfect storm that hurt Zeke.
  2. The catch Marrone is referring to happens at around 1:45.
  3. Marlon Mack is trash. That's a big part of why people are so high on JT. He was drafted in the 4th round. His PFF grades from 2017 thru 2019 are 68.0, 68.6, and 69.5. I'd tell you where he ranks among the RBs, but the article I'm looking at only goes to the top 25 and he's not on the list. Duke Johnson is #25 with a grade of 74.2 for crying out loud. Mack has missed multiple games every season. The Colts didn't go into last season expecting him to be the focal point of their offense. They found out 5 minutes before kickoff that their franchise QB was retiring and had to deal with what they had. They now know they have to be a run first team so what do they do...they go and trade up in the second round to take a 230 lb freak athlete with a Player Profiler comp to Zeke.
  4. In the first game between the Jags and Colts last year, Williams had 13 carries for 116 yards and Mack had 14 carries for 109 yards and a TD. Brissett and Hines also had rushing TDs. The colts had 30 carries by their RBs and 24 passes. The colts won that game 33-13. Take it for what it is, but it sure seems like we will have a very similar final score and gameflow this time around. Double digit carries against this defense with 3 rushing TDs for the team in a similar situation last year. I like the chances of Taylor putting up a flex-worthy score in week 1.
  5. I find it funny that everyone focuses on how lucky Jones was with the TDs last year, yet I’ve not seen anyone bring up the fact that his first two years his ypc was up at 5.5 and last year it dipped to 4.6. I think there’s an argument to be made that he actually underperformed last year when it comes to that rushing yardage.
  6. Non ppr league. Who would you start between brown and Kirk?? Thanks for any help!
  7. Not in my league. It's a continuous FAAB system. As soon as I posted that questions the Darnold news came out. Forget Robby without him under center.
  8. Robby Anderson was dropped during waivers. How much should he go for on the second wave of waivers?
  9. The Chargers have a very poor run D? I'll be honest I haven't looked into how the defensive front looks this year, but last year they allowed the 10th fewest rushing yards per game. That doesn't seem like a very poor run D to me.
  10. Our ESPN league voted to change our acquisition settings from FAAB to FAAB continuous. I went to make the change and ESPN won't let me change the player acquisition system setting. Does anyone know how I go about changing the settings?
  11. There is no quote about six weeks from anyone. That's my point. It's a clickbait article from PFT that Sleeper referenced. PFT took that Jerry Jones quote and asked what does "dog days of the season mean" and came to the hypothesis that it means six weeks. It's just their interpretation.
  12. That is a very speculative report right there. All of it is based off of the same quotes Jerry Jones made at the luncheon. “We’ve got a marathon here,” Jones said earlier this week. “We want Zeke when we get to the playoffs. We want Zeke when we’re in the dog days of the season.” There's nothing new there, but a headline of "Cowboys anticipate Zeke holds out 6 weeks" will sure get some clicks.
  13. https://www.nfl.com/prospects/kyler-murray?id=32194d55-5267-0413-8d36-a5c3fd781aa0 Facts are facts. His OFFICIAL height from the combine was 5'-10 1/8". If you want to pretend like there's some conspiracy to add a couple inches to his height then have fun with your tinfoil hat.
  14. Nope. His combine height was "officially" 5'-10 1/8".
  15. Bears fan and Howard owner last year here. Howard was a terrible fit for Nagy's scheme. Under the previous regime he was constantly running with more traditional formations (fullback, double TEs, etc.) and against loaded boxes. He was a good in those situations because of his vision. He is very good at being patient and finding the right holes. When he got passed the first level, there was often nothing in his way. He had quite a few long runs because of these situations early on. In Nagy's scheme he didn't see the stacked boxes and his vision didn't matter. In the situations he would get to the second level, he would get swallowed up. He was also pretty much nothing in the passing game so teams knew what was coming. I don't think you can compare Montgomery and Howard because they have completely different attributes. Unlike Howard, Montgomery has excellent short burst and was one of the best at breaking tackles ever in college. He's also very good in the passing game. I would not look at Howard's lack of success in the system as a red flag for Montgomery at all. Just my opinion though.
  16. I know this is getting ahead of things, but any opinion on this guys' dynasty prospects? Any chance he's the lead back for the Ravens next year? Possibly an RB2?
  17. I like sheppard the most and probably gordon second. Dede is a close third. Thanks on mine.
  18. Does anyone know when ESPN typically posts their stat corrections each week? I'm a little ansy after advanced to the championship game by way of a seeding tiebreaker. Really hoping to not have some surprise scoring change crush my fantasy season.
  19. I like Blount for flex. Foles feels like the high risk/high reward option while Taylor is the safe bet.
  20. My options are Bortles, Foles and Winston. Gulp. Who do you think I should go with?
  21. The Saints have allowed the 10th fewest points to opposing RBs this year. By throwing out the Saints game and the Chicago game you're limiting your sample size on Jones starts to one game against the Lions where he went 5 carries for 12 yards. Shrug. Interpret everything how you want. Bottom line I have the most faith that Jones will be the guy when it's all said and done.
  22. Nope. In games Rodgers didn't start Jones is averaging 6.2 ypc and his best game was against the Saints who are a top 10 defense against fantasy RBs this year.
