    This could just be coming from coach speak, or it could just be faulty analysis by a reporter.

    But with that said, I think it’s reasonable to expect that Ajayi has a healthy-sized role. As large as Howard? Maybe, maybe not. But the reality is I just don’t think Sanders has a chance at being the main guy here, and I don’t think it’ll happen anytime this year (if ever). He’s just not a good runner between the tackles. He’ll always have opportunity to break a big one when he gets space, but I see no path to him being anything but a low volume boom/bust RB and that is not the type of RB I care to roster at this point in the year. I want someone who at least has an opportunity to fall into large volume.

    Any high-upside handcuff is more valuable than Sanders right now in my opinion. If those are all rostered in your league, I honestly think a defense with a great fantasy playoff schedule is more valuable. If all of those are rostered, then sure hold Sanders, but I think I’m dropping him in shallow leagues.

    All my opinion of course. I’m just not very scared of one of my league mates grabbing Sanders.

    atrocious to see that kinda stat line for a kid who was leading all rookie RBs in rec ydg.  absolutely baffling. 

    anyways ...

    hell, even looks like Alshon will be back ... a case of more mouths to cover for Seattle might be the elixir for #26. 



    Ehh I’m sorry but this is just typical rotoworld logic...

    1) if teammates are injured, then it’s good for the player I own because he’ll get the ball more

    2) if teammates are getting back from injury, it’s good for the player I own because the defense will have to cover more players

    I don’t think it works both ways like that is. Truthfully, we really know very little about how injuries are going to impact other players’ outcomes.

    I mean, when a guy has had Johnny Maziel and Jameis Winston as his QBs basically his whole adult life, maturity is probably a difficult concept to emulate.  🤣


    Evans didn’t even play football until his senior year of high school, so Manziel and Winston are basically the only QBs he’s ever had throw the ball to him. Yikes.

  4. If fantasy football was truly ALL luck, you could put the players on NFL rosters in a random generator to pick your lineup and it would have just as good a chance of winning as the next lineup.

    I know that sounds like a silly point, but I think it’s an important point.

    Generally when we say “fantasy football is luck”, what we mean is that the average joe can go based of consensus draft rankings or consensus weekly projections to set their lineup and have a great chance of beating someone who puts in a ton more time. And that is absolutely true. And I believe that’s because the fantasy football community’s combined SKILL and the Information Age have combined to make rankings, projections, and waiver wire analysis significantly more accurate and readily available than in the past. It makes it a lot more difficult for an individual fantasy team manager to gain a significant advantage over another by investing more time into research and analysis. The fantasy community is already doing it and publishing the results on the internet in real-time for anyone to access. I believe it’s still possible to gain an advantage, but the margins are much slimmer than in the past. An individual’s ability to process information, recognize patterns, and make decisions is still a driver of success in fantasy football, but it’s more difficult for an individual to gain an advantage. Same as poker or any game that combines vast amounts of information processing and luck.

    The amount and quality of information available in real-time today vs. 10 years ago is a much bigger driver of the increase in “luck” in fantasy football than anything that’s actually occurred in the game of football. In my opinion. 

    With machine learning and artificial intelligence making rapid gains, it will be interesting to see what happens in the fantasy football world over the next 10 years.

    Was it that bad? Granted I only watched the first half but he looked somehow explosive to me. Not special but ok.


    He’s a pretty explosive back, but he’s terrible (and I mean TERRIBLE) at finding holes. You don’t even have to look that hard with this OL, but he somehow still misses them. 

    If he could get a 60% touch share and simply take what’s given to him by the OL, he’d easily be a top 15 fantasy back.

  6. Back to the waiver wire you go.

    Obviously will wait to see Howard’s status, but this guy is a bum. 

    I chose to start him over Ronald Jones, Michel, and Montgomery. With only Montgomery left to play, somehow starting Sanders is looking like the right choice. LOL

  7. I stand by my statement that Winston is not a top 20 NFL QB. I don’t care how many yards he puts up. He puts his team in the hole every single game. Any game managing QB who gets 200 yards and limits turnovers is an upgrade for a franchise over Winston.
