Lesean got dropped in my league during the warm-up shenanigan BS. What % FAAB should be spent on him going into week 4 as a waiver wire pick up?

honestly I would go 30-50%, you don't see the potential lead back on a top 2 offense on the waiver too often

High stakes leagues have the same losers, just with more money.

Duke Johnson owners right now..

Depends on your league size and how many bench spots you have.  In a 12 teamer with 7 bench slots, most of the good players are on teams already and waiver wire guys are not that good, even if they get the opportunity (see: Wayne Gallman).  In a league like that, I would go 50% because....who are you waiting for to emerge?  The smaller the league (or the fewer bench slots), the less I would pay because there's more of a chance later in the year for a big pickup to come out.

Plus, as we saw with Darrel Williams, the main guy in this backfield will be a stud, and it certainly looks like McCoy is trending towards that guy.

I don't know what your FAAB strategy is, but typically you want to spend a lot of it early in the season because you get that player for more games.

Week 1: Williams-45 snaps (66%) 13 carries, 6 receptions (19 touches) McCoy-20 snaps (29%) 10 carries, 1 reception (11 touches)

Week 2: Williams-39 snaps (51%) 9 carries, 3 receptions (12 touches) McCoy-31 snaps (41%) 11 carries, 3 receptions (14 touches) 

Week 3: McCoy 26 snaps (38%) 8 carries, 3 receptions (11 touches) Darrel Williams-37 snaps (54%) 9 carries, 5 receptions (14 touches) 

 

There is no lead back, this is a RBBC with two backs splitting the bulk of the workload, just as Reid said he would use when asked last month.

Rotoworld's last blurb says McCoy is on the RB 2/3 borderline, but at this point we're all confident with him being an RB2, right?

 

I think the borderline is a decent call. His touches are still somewhat lower than comparable backs in the RB2 conversation. To get to 12+ pts, he’s looking at needing a td. For a normal RB2, I would think 12 pts ppr is attainable based on volume alone. The good news is that his volume should be trending up so he could very well be a RB2 in a couple of weeks.

I think as long as Dwill is out for the time being, and even when he returns, RB2 seems like the right classification.  I'll be rolling him out this week (if he's playing w Dwill out again) probably ahead of Kerryon and Fournette based on his upside even with limited touches.

None of the KC backs are RB2s IMO. When all our healthy, Williams and McCoy seem more like flex type players in standard 10 team leagues. Now if one of them were to be injured for an extended period of time...

KC and SF are frustrating situations due to all of the talent in the backfield. Can't trade them (nobody interested), can't drop them....and would anybody really be shocked if Darwin is the main guy by the end of season? Just a crazy amount of variables....

How can anyone be this high on him after he broke down after 2 weeks in a limited roll and then re-aggravated his injury in week 3 and couldn’t even finish the game?  

I dunno, 20pts in standard is pretty good for 3 quarters...

Things are looking encouraging. He looked great on the td carries. Imagine if they rest him a little this week he can let ankle heal. I wouldn’t be surprised if he ends up lead dog. It is surprising because DWilliams looked like a lock. Far from it now.

Williams did not look like a lock. Ever. At all. Williams was the furthest thing from a lock going in the top 50.

Matthew Berry is probably hoping the Chiefs pick up Alfred Morris.

As for McCoy, the concern would be that he is not close to 100% healthy.  It turns out a running back needs to use his ankles to play that position.

If McCoy’s healthy, he’s an RB2 ROS, period. Darrel Williams will be the change of pace guy and probably flexable most weeks. Damien isn’t getting his job back, and Darwin will only be useful as a Dynasty League stash and if there are multiple injuries ahead of him.

This backfield is an absolute mess, which is really a shame cause we saw what a mediocre RB did with volume to close out last year. If DWill is out McCoy is a RB2 with upside, but I think it's naive to say DWill has lost his job. McCoy hasn't exactly run away with it. If the entire backfield is healthy I could see this settling with no one being startable.

Lol, this troll is still here. Keyword is POTENTIAL lead back, forget snap percentages shady just had the best individual game of any chiefs RB this season. 6.8 YPC coupled with 2 TDs on only 11 touches, pretty safe to assume that sort of efficiency warrants additional usage. This man also juked marlon humphrey down to his knees as an added bonus.

11 touches for McCoy and 14 for a guy named Darrel Williams is not really encouraging. I'm selling McCoy.

Excepting the play where he tripped, I am confused as to why this doesn’t  look good for a guy on a sprained ankle:

 

 

 

He re aggravated his ankle and before that was slow getting up after every tackle. He clearly was going off pure adrenaline and was not 100%. When the camera zoomed in on his face you could tell he was uncomfortable.

So the question seems to be how long until his ankle is right?

Yeah.  That's the issue.  He's gonna keep running on it.

I think he ends up playing through it and all of us will be wondering how many carries he gets until he's healthy.  Hopefully not too long - Mixon had a sprained ankle and was ok in literally 1 week.

If any of these backs start to get 70% of the work, he is an RB1.  These are the total fantasy points for the KC backfield each week (standard scoring) -

Week 1 vs. Jags - 22.1

Week 2 vs. Oak - 8.0

Week 3 vs. Bal - 31.7

If the lead back gets 70% of these points, he would have scored 15.5, 5.6, and 22.2 for a total of 43.3 points and an average of 14.4 points per game.  It would rank 9th overall, just behind Zeke and ahead of David Johnson.

As it is, on a partial workload with a bad ankle, McCoy is still the #18 RB in fantasy, so he's already an RB2.

If McCoy gets 70% he absolutely is. Because he has the talent to match the role. If he gets to 70%, the only thing that's going to take it away from him is injury.

Other lower talent options are not necessarily top 12 guys because they will always have the risk of getting benched when their JAG starts showing.
