  1. Agreed, absolutely he'll regress and the lack of walks is a big worry, but it's good to see he's not just doing it at Coors or against righties.
  2. I know it's still early and dude is red-hot right now, but they are definitely not hiding him against lefties. Batted third and took Urias deep on the road last night. Wish he walked more (taken 1 BB so far this year...) but the power is real. Who needs walks when you can just smack dingers. At the very least he's been doing a good job of putting the "only start him at home vs R hand pitching" narrative to bed.
  3. Was disappointed to see him dropped down to 7th in the order last night with Tim Anderson returning, but he had a decent game. Walk rate is essentially unchanged from last year in the early going but K rate is down. Would be nice to see him back in the top half of the order but I'm not sure who you swap him with at the moment.
  4. So is the fact that we haven't heard anything about the MRI results a good thing? What are you even trying to determine with an MRI on a hamstring - the severity of the strain? I feel like if they had found a significant tear we'd have gotten a timeline (e.g. will be reevaluated in 6 weeks, etc.). Sounds like its more of a week to week thing. This is of course pure speculation on my part. Also, I take the injury "eye test" with a grain of salt. I've seen plenty of pro athletes react to injuries in the moment that turned out to be more minor than they appeared. Look at the Tatis injur
  5. Taking the plunge and picked him up to stream today. Pretty good matchup for him.
  6. Batting leadoff today vs left handed pitcher. He's basically started every game he's been available, even with Naquin hitting the cover off the ball.
  7. I still think he's a hold but won't be starting again for a while. His targets/touches have been pretty low value (short dumps near the LOS) and Minshew spreads it around a lot. It's too early to bail on a rookie with so much talent though (who didn't have a preseason no less).
  8. DJax is definitely worth a pickup. They have no other receivers.
  9. I'd go McKinnon. You need a TD for Wilson to pay off (granted there's a decent shot this week). Either are in play for a FLEX spot this week.
  10. No haha. I'm just saying I went out and got him, which is part of the reason I used my top waiver. It's kind of a weird format league with limited term keepers so I'm not sure it would really be a gauge of his value to say who I traded. I gave up a WR2, 2 RB2s and future assets. CMC is not eligible to be kept.
  11. I definitely agree with you on ROS Ekeler > Kelley. But my point about the volume is that JJ has literally never been involved as Kelley was in only his second pro game. Melvin Gordon holdout was last year so JJ played the first 3 games without him. His carry counts were 6, 7, 5. In the 2018 games he played while Gordon was hurt his carry counts were 7, 8, 7, and 16 (career high ran for 58 yards). Through 2 games Kelley has 6 more carries than JJ had the entire year last year (which again includes 3 games without Gordon). I guess my point is that Jackson might eat into Kelley's s
  12. I'm definitely more hyped about the touches than the numbers. Justin Jackson has had double digit carries once in his entire career. His career high in attempts is 16. This kid has now done it twice in his first two games in the league and surpassed JJ career high in carries by 7. Why wouldn't they keep running the ball? It almost got them a win against one of the best teams in the league. They have a rookie QB and clearly their best offensive pieces are RBs.
  13. Ingram, D-Jax, McKinnon, Shenault If I had McLaurin and/or Golladay for that slot I would play them haha I'm not that confident! Nah but I do like his role and matchup this week.
  14. Agreed. His offseason and how much praise he got + the confidence they have shown in making him the clear and only backup on gamedays gives me a little more comfort. I used my #1 claim on him (then traded for CMC).
