It's called a pimp limp. That's the way I walk into work on Monday mornings

For those who are targeting this dude, where are you planning on taking him? I'd like to wait until the last few rounds if possible but unsure if anyone else in my league is in on him.

 

Looks like he’s trending up significantly and is now in Richard/CJA/Bernard territory as RB55.  You may need to be thinking about him at or around rd 12, with a reach in rd 11 if you really want to roster him.

In my 14 team keeper league with a projected 21 keepers held, I'm eyeing him at my 9.14 / 10.1 wheel pick (#126 overall).  I am keeping Damien Williams, so this is a priority handcuff for me and for potential keeper value in future years.

I took Thompson with my final pick amongst skill players before going kicker and defense, so figure Round 14-ish value (it was actually Round 12, but factoring in keepers, that probably bumps what should have been his ADP down roughly 25-30 picks). I'm not convinced Hyde makes the 53 and even if he does, he's not that good......nor am I convinced that Damien Williams was anything other than a flash in the pan late last season.

 

I think Thompson is as worthwhile a flier as you'll find late in fantasy drafts and is worth a stash for now. Obviously, the Chiefs offense is as explosive as there is in the NFL.....just needs a road to opportunity.

I'm missing the joke here....are we really calling DarWINNING ....Sparks McRhino?  

 

Yes, it's clearly the superior nickname. 

And as I read on a bathroom wall, "the joke is in your hand".

Took him in the 10th. Have to reach when you play with sharks. Do yourself a favor and draft him before Hyde gets cut. It's more a matter of when he gets cut. ADP gonna go to Henderson range then

maybe not s slow as advertised

 

“I’ll tell you what, he’s doing a nice job,” Chiefs coach Andy Reid said. “He’s able to see the blitz, which is a big thing for young guys. He has good vision in the run game. Then, he has a pretty good understanding of the pass game. He’s a really focused kid. He’s kind of a no-nonsense guy. He wants to do it right, is real focused, studies a lot. I like the way he’s made up that way.”

 

“Darwin, you would think, is a smaller, jitterbug-type of guy,” Chiefs running backs coach Deland McCullough said, “but he’s strong and packs a punch. He can protect. He can run routes. He can run the ball. I feel really happy with what we have there.”

 

He carried five times for 22 yards against Cincinnati, then had four carries for 30 yards last week in Pittsburgh — showing a couple of nifty moves and some unexpected breakaway speed.
