this post aged well

I hope Drake doesn't get traded to Tennessee, simply because I'm afraid my good friend @DerrickHenrysCleats would die from an ecstasy-induced embolism if Henry and Drake were on the same team.

But he did tear them up a couple weeks ago...

Exactly. Also, Carson had a modest game against them last week as well.

I like to look at all angles. With Kittle doubtful and Sanders hobbling, The Niners will have trouble moving the ball which means more possessions for the Cards offense. 

If Drake does well this week and officially takes the reigns, he could be a fantasy winner down the stretch. Definitely something to watch.

I think the bye really complicates things. If Drake is alright today but DJ and Chase heal up over the bye what then? Three headed monster is a real possibility.

How's everyone feeling about him this week? He's had a pretty solid floor since joining AZ. 

 

It’s a failed mission I want no part of . From the looks of things DJ and Edmonds will both be active. A 3 headed timeshare with no idea who the GL back is . I wouldn’t start any of these guys confidently , until we know exactly how things will play out.

This is a tough game to figure out what the roles are going to be - Edmunds is back and DJ never left. I started out the week with him in there but now that we're getting serious I'm benching him for more stable options. It sucks because STL is reeling in all phases. I could see Drake breaking "one" - just impossible to know what his snap count is going to be right now.

The question I have always struggled with in terms of this offense is exactly what is a lead rb worth?

They rush 37% of plays and pass 68%

Redzone scoring is 38%

score 2 td's a game and less than 1 rushing td a game

Value would be in receptions for the RB in PPR and half PPR.

Thats's a tough thing to value when they run 4wr sets and average 35 pass attempts a game, assumming they will rotate rb's and not have a workhorse

Plus when the other RB (that they admittedly aren't really using) is—or at least was—one of the premier receiving backs in the league.
