  1. If everett is out this weekend, and indications are that he will be, I see this guy as a TE1. Seen him touted as a TE2, which I disagree with. Remember Everett’s breakout game earlier in the year was against Seattle when he went for 7 and 135. Seattle is second worst against TE this season and this game will have a lot of points scored. Higbee ran a large number of routes last week as well. What’s everyone else think?
  2. Looks like Wilkins will be playing on Thursday. How does that factor in to Hines’s work? Does it?
  3. I think at best we are looking at a game time decision next Sunday for him. Unfortunately he doesn’t play until SNF. Potentially makes things tricky
  4. “Davis (concussion) is participating in practice Wednesday, Ben Standig of The Athletic reports. Davis' presence at practice doesn't necessarily indicate that he's cleared the NFL's concussion protocol, but his involvement can be taken as a sign that his condition is improving. Washington will reveal the extent of Davis' participation once the session concludes, but the veteran tight end looks like he'll probably be in line for a limited listing on Washington's first injury report of Week 6, per Kareem Copeland of The Washington Post. With Jordan Reed (concussion) trending toward another
  5. I’ll do you one further on San Fran and predict they finish as a top 3 fantasy defense, that should be rostered in all leagues. They have the best pass rush in the league imo so even if they give up points, they are still a great bet for sacks, ints, forced fumbles, and TDs. They haven’t even been giving up many points either, albeit to weaker opponents. They have given up 11 to TB, 17 to Cincy (final TD was a fluke 66 yarder with 30 seconds left when they were up 31), 20 to Pitt, and 3 to Cleveland. A floor of 7 points with a ceiling of 25-30 is exactly what you want in a defense. I also love
  6. Anybody like Singletary as a buy low right now?
  7. This man said Kenyan Drake over Darrel lmaoo. We don’t know what the split is going to be on Sunday, but dropping him right now is crazy. He is 24 years old and new to the league. It’s not crazy to think that while he started behind Damien on the depth chart, that Andy doesn’t think more highly of him than Damien.
  8. Tricky situation especially with the Chiefs playing on SNF.. for now we just will have to wait on Damien’s status. If we are lucky we will know before the 1 o’clock games kick off.
  9. Denzel Ward, Greedy Williams, and Morgan Burnett have all missed a second day of practice today. Gotta think a big weekend is on the horizon for Hollywood with the possibility of the Browns missing 3/4 of their starting secondary this weekend. Really struggling with the decision between him and McLaurin in my flex...
  10. “Either Damien Williams or LeSean McCoy has been the Chiefs’ featured back on 119 of 129 plays this season, or 92 percent. Neither was participating in the early portion of practice on Wednesday because of injuries. Darrel Williams and rookie Darwin Thompson, who between them have 10 plays this season, would be in line to get the work on Sunday against the Ravens. Thompson, a sixth-round draft pick, was impressive in training camp and the preseason and looked like he would get a portion of the work in the regular season until the Chiefs signed McCoy. Coach Andy Reid said he wants to make sure
  11. He may require a fair bit of patience, and this is easy for me to say, as I have no shares of his, but I am confident come end of season, Sanders is the guy to own in the Philly backfield. Jordan Howard is not their best bet over the course of the season and honestly not really a threat imo, and Sproles is just a change of pace. Sanders has tried to do too much with his touches and I think he is a bit immature in his development still, but he has not exactly had much room to operate either. The entire offense looks out of rhythm, not just him. There is too much talent in that offense not to ge
  12. I have always been a believer in Drake's talent level, despite his criminally low usage the previous three seasons in Miami. He has been awfully efficient with his limited touches every year, even while always playing in a dumpster fire of an offense. His pass catching abilities are what stand out about him especially. I think that whatever team trades for him will be looking to add that aspect to their offense. He is in the final year of his deal and I can almost guarantee he is dealt before the October 30th deadline, likely sooner than later. The rumors are already swirling, the Dolphins sho
  13. For those questioning what the hype is about, I would suggest watching his highlight tape from his rookie season. Kid has great size, speed, and chemistry with Darnold. Think he is a low end TE1 when he returns.
  14. Any thoughts on this guy? Is he a drop candidate with fewer positive game scripts on the horizon? Cant really see him playing much of a role with Bridgewater quarterbacking.
  15. For those of us streaming QB, I think Josh Allen has a pretty good chance to be our permanent guy. His rushing yards along with the Bills' willingness to use him as the goal line back, give him a high floor, while still possessing a high ceiling. He had four turnovers week 1 and still finished with 16 points. His throwing looks quite a bit better as well. Time will tell if he is matchup proof, but in the short term, he has another plus matchup this weekend with Cincinnati, which just got crushed by Jimmy G and the 49ers. I will be rolling him out there again and taking it week by week with him
  16. Thats just it. He has a high floor as well as an incredibly high ceiling. They seem to like throwing screen passes to him and letting him do the rest, which looks damn successful thus far. They are also looking to go up top to him, with the help of the play fake, which Lamar has already mastered. The guy has great agility and acceleration. Harbaugh has also been raving about how good his hands are. Happy to have a part of this offense. Haven't been this excited about a waiver pick up since Kamara..
  17. Surprised at the lack of activity in this thread. This kid looks like a star in the making. Possible WR1 rest of the way.... 😧
  18. This guy is a rock solid RB1 until Melvin Gordon returns, and even then I believe that he will maintain RB2 numbers. The Chargers would be foolish to go away from him simply to appease their "star player." Ekeler has been arguably their most explosive player through two games. Hunter Henry's injury opens up another position on the field and let's not forget that Ekeler is not your prototypical running back. He can be moved around the formation and run routes quite well. He has great wiggle which helps him tremendously in the red zone and inside the five. Gordon will take a chunk of his early d
  19. Saw 36 snaps this afternoon and Harbaugh seems keen on getting him the ball. He saw both vertical and high percentage looks, that allow him to use his after catch ability. Jackson's mobility plus his speed is a lethal combo. Dropped a dime in for Brown to run under for 40+ yards to seal the game. Rock solid WR2 from here out imo.
  20. Anyone starting him this week? Not sure whether to expect his snaps to go up due to a more competitive opponent and one game under his belt or down due to this new hip issue..
  21. As a giants fan, I can assure you that this defense is Swiss cheese, comprised of almost entirely first and second year players. Bottom five in the league at the moment. Dak had all day to pass and constantly had wide open receivers last week. The linebacking core is especially weak. Really a perfect spot for Allen to bounce back from last weeks early struggles. Starting with confidence.
  22. Today’s news about Guice makes Thompson an even more valuable asset. AP will get early down work, but will get significantly less work than Guice would’ve gotten, had he stayed healthy. He’s past it at this point. Thompson was an RB2 in PPR two seasons ago, the last time he was fully healthy. He’s fit now with a QB who will dump it off often and on an offense that will be trailing more times than not. AP will not be on the field when they’re trailing. He’s made of glass, but if you’ve got this guy right now I’d feel good about rolling him out there.
  23. Frustrated Gillislee owner. What do people make of dropping Gillislee for Dion Lewis? Looked real explosive in his 10 carries against the Jets. Interestingly didn't have any receptions however.
  24. Thoughts on Njoku moving forward? Back to back weeks with touchdowns now. Personally think the Browns will try to get him involved more.
