  1. Tough hold. Still has potential blowup ability, but yeah considering WRs are quite easy to find/get some mid level production out of, hard to justify holding now that we are 10 weeks into the season.
  2. This guy is the definition of a “lowlife”. I understand people are here for fantasy and stats, but have to say I’m really sick of seeing him get chances time and time again. Has nothing to do with “missing out on him” either, it has to do with him not only being a horrible person, but proving over and over again that he really hasn’t changed. If you aren’t aware of all the charges against this guy go google it, and you if you think where there’s this much smoke there’s no fire at all, or he’s a “target”, you really can’t put the pieces together.
  3. Most impactful non-QB player in the game IMO. Was funny reading posts about how people thought Davis was going to cut into his usage. Every snap you take him off the field, you lower your odds of winning. Coaches understand that simple concept.
  4. So who is feeling brave enough to start this guy tonight?
  5. Seems you are upset because your logic isn't tying out- you first brought up how he was only good on SF cause they can run the ball well(yet a poor runner like Coleman couldn't do well there which proves you still need talent even on a good team). You then brought up Breida's 3.5ypc in a meaningless sample, which anybody that knows stats, will tell you that you also can't use to prove your point. Now, on your 3rd attempt, you are making more sense- the Dolphins are not great at running the ball. Nobody will debate that, and you should have started with that point. Wit
  6. Understand what you’re trying to say, but this year’s sample size is meaningless. You can’t get any meaningful data off 37 attempts across 7 games. Just a nonsense sample that means nothing since he’s barely been used.
  7. Also unsure whether to hold TB defense. Matchup this week isn't great + KC coming up and a bye also. Tempted to switch to Hou for the week, but at the same time TB is a top 3 defense and Texans have pretty much been the worst defense this year. You learn over the years that matchups do matter but only to a certain extreme.
  8. SF can certainly run the ball as well as anybody, but at the same time Coleman's YPC was 4.0 on 130+ carries, so it also makes the point invalid if you're saying anybody can run there.
  9. How is it possible that even for players doing very well, all people do is complain on this forum? You are upset he had a down game where he still managed to have a TD? You can't see how in real life football he may not be the only one the team uses based on coverage/game script etc? Man, people want the perfect players and have a really detached sense of how the game works.
  10. Wentz is not trash, the problem is after you play fantasy for a while you learn that the "matchup" only means so much. People think "oh they are playing Dallas or Seattle, that's a lock for top 10 production", just doesn't work that way. With 6pt passing TDs in my leagues, Wentz was the QB9 leading into this week. That's about where he was drafted, and also probably where he will finish around(give or take). The problem is, all back-end QB1s will have down games, and if you think you can predict those just based on matchups, you are wrong. Either pay up to get the very elite QB
  11. Do we even know if "not spotted" means he didn't practice? Wouldn't jump to conclusions here- especially when they did this last week.
  12. 50/50 at best if Mixon is healthy? LOL this forum is hilarious. Edit: sorry missed sarcasm lol
  13. I don't hope he sits, at all lol. The Panthers are 3-4, do you really think they'd rush him back to play on thursday night if he wasn't 100%? There is no logic to rush him back, and he's missed 5 weeks which is a completely acceptable time frame for the injury. But sure, keep "hoping" he sits another week, haha.
  14. Again, this isn't sound reasoning. Who will never play him? Anybody in 12+ team leagues looking for 10+ points after all these injuries and lack of RBs, can certainly play him if his role sticks or continues to grow. To put things in perspective, with 13.5 points this week he was RB 17 in PPR, and the injuries just keep piling up this this week. The cost should also be close to nothing at this point as well.
  15. With the state of RB, this guy shouldn't be ignored. Keep hearing "bad team" and "Gase" etc. but nobody is saying he is going to be a RB1. Obviously far from a sure thing- but go take a look how the back end RB2 and RB3s look, and then tell me ANY guy who's getting 15 touches can't creep into that territory. If Jets keep playing from behind, it plays into Perine's strength even more(receiving). Obviously need to see more, but would pick up in any deep league since almost every owner needs RB help in 12+ team leagues.
  16. Tough spot to be in with Jacobs this week. On the one hand, he's a featured back and in any kind of 12+ team league most people just don't have enough depth to bench a featured back. On the other hand, Tampa run D hasn't allowed more than 34 yards rushing in the last 4 games to any one player they have faced. And that player was Jamal Williams who had one long run for 29(think this may have been in garbage time too but not sure), but Aaron Jones was held to 15 yards on 10 carries which is insane. If you have watched Tampa play lately- they have been beyond impressive facing the
  17. If healthy, top 15 WR, no doubt about it. He's a very similar player to DK, so if people aren't valuing him accordingly, go trade for him.
  18. Lol some funny takes here. 4 good games in his career vs arguably the best running back in the NFL over the last 2 seasons, and people make these comments. Save him for the playoffs? They are a 3-3 team who has not looked special at all. What are you talking about? You think they can coast into the playoffs with Mike Davis? You don’t “save” a 64 million dollar RB. If he’s healthy, he plays and plays a lot. This is a simple one not sure how there can be so many off the wall comments.
  19. Don't let Bell fool you- he doesn't care about chasing a ring and only wants money. If he cared, he would not have sat out 2018 for a team that was a contender that offered him 14 mil to play under the tag. A player that has a real desire to "win", does not do that.
  20. There is nothing really naive about owning him- he's exactly what you thought you would get. He's currently the RB8 in my PPR league. On pace for 1196 rushing a little more than 6 rushing tds, 60 catches for 393 receiving yards and 3 receiving TDs. So a total pace of 1589 yards with about 9 rushing+receiving TDs with 60 catches. The only knock on him, along with about 90% of fantasy players, is week to week consistency. That's how it goes- go look at Julio Jones game logs who continues to be a top 15 pick every year even though he is madly inconsistent. He is a back end
  21. One more thing- you say you value him similar to Terry last year. Terry had a 16 game pace of 66/1050/8 last year, which yes if you could have at at your WR3 would be wonderful in theory, but that is well within WR2 range on paper.
  22. How many guys are really set and forget? Especially when they have bad matchups/elite CBs on them, almost any WR in the NFL can have a down game. With that said he has the talent I think to easily be a top 25 WR going forward. Thielen is a VERY good WR who will require serious attention as long as he is on the field, and they have Cook who also needs to be constantly worried about. Also, after putting up 175 yards and torching a defense the week before, you can bet I don't see any way he's a WR4, that's pushing it and WR3 I'd say is his floor at this point. This all depends on league size(
  23. Kid is a stud and with Minny's trash D, they will be forced to throw in many games. I'd say he can easily land in WR2 range, and really there is almost no point in trading him because at best you will probably get a WR2 or RB3 back with less upside than him. I'd be curious to know how many rookie WRs ever have had 2 100+ yard games in their first 4 career starts..
  24. Another disappointing year(or 60 games) for Vlad Jr. The profile just doesn't look great that's the main problem, he still has a lot of work to do. 183 total games now sitting at ~780OPS and almost 2:1 K:BB ratio. He's shown some flashes here and there, but overall given his pedigree he's been very ordinary. Could take some time but I don't think anybody would have expected this average of a start to his career.
  25. Go look up what “highly speculative” means. This is a family death, where millions and millions of people have dealt with over and over again(including myself). 0 precedent for what you’re arguing in pro sports. It’s always hard to deal with death, but unfortunately if you’re an adult with responsibilities and need to support a family(most likely you are a teenager in your Mom’s basement so you probably can’t relate), you get back to normal life in a much quicker time frame than 3-4 months when your salary is on the line. I’m done responding. Go ask your Mom if the meatloaf is done.
