Obviously DJ is ahead of Drake if healthy. Health is the question.

I think it’s debatable between Drake and Edmonds, but health is still the question there.

I would agree.

It's prob a safe bet we won't see DJ and Chase both healthy at the same time again the rest of the season, so Drake should hold a role

There is absolutely nothing of substance in this post. But you're saying nice things about a player on my fantasy team, so, I shall hit the like button begrudingly.

You know how people trample each other on Black Friday to get that discounted TV? This is how you should be behaving with Chase on your waivers.

A big LOL to you. nobody thought that. chase Edmonds is not David Johnson. Guys who played him were just hoping for maybe a double digit fantasy day. 

 

NOBODY THOUGHT THAT?? dude scroll back 20 pages to see everyone hyping up Chase Edmonds like he's the biggest breakout start of the decade.

They get now three good run defenses (SF twice) then a bye. Edmonds can heal and still be a contributor weeks 13+ if you can hold.

Drake didn't travel before Edmonds injury. I think there is something going on with DJ.

Edmonds csn safely be dropped now

Thanks for coming out and enjoying the festivities but I am sorry to inform you all that the party is over. Make sure you throw away your trash on your way out the door and check to make sure you're not leaving anything behind. Thanks again and God Bless.

Biggest hype train derailment in history 

 

Seriously. he had one good game against a terrible defense with holes big enough enough to drive a truck thru and everyone lost their minds thinking he was some amazing RB lol. Hate to say I told you so, but I told you so.

Honestly this past week turned the cardinals backfield from fine for DJ to an absolute hellscape. Kenyan will be trash behind that oline, edmonds will maybe be a 1st-2nd down back while DJ is out, and it looks like DJ won't be fully healthy for the rest of the season, all 3 guys ended up losing value

In fantasy you never know when the next lightning in a bottle will come from. There are many examples in history, but let's look at Damien Williams last year out of recency.

Chase's game vs the Giants was an explosive one that most highly drafted fantasy RBs won't even come close to.

Save your I told you so's.

Such is football and fantasy football.

Haha. He strained his hamstring early in the game. I don't think anyone would be hyping him if they knew that would happen. 

And we don't know how successful he would have been had that not happened. He would likely be the starting RB for the foreseeable future with DJ still out. And the hype could have turned out to be warranted. 

Also he had 2 good games prior to the huge game. It wasn't just 1 good game.

Also the Cardinals rated as the best run game DVOA in the entire league before Week 8, so condescension towards Chase lovers is unwarranted.

He had 7 carries for 8 yards and looked terrible. He wouldn't have done anything.

He's probably out three weeks and then the bye comes in Week 12. Keep him if you can, but cut him loose if you have to because the schedule doesn't get any easier. By that time DJ "should" be healthy. At that point you are near the playoff portion of the schedule. If I made the playoffs I just haven't seen enough in Chase against good defenses to say I'd put him in my lineup. I mean, Pittsburgh, Cleveland, and Seattle are the playoff matchups through Week 16. Not exactly scary, but also I can't say I trust Chase either. They are scores better than the defenses he has faced so far.

I am becoming more and more convinced that DVOA is a terrible metric in a vacuum.

I mean, it's wonderful that we are able to say, "hey, here's another barometer to show that the Cardinals can run on Atlanta or the Giants in the pouring rain when they're worried about Kyler Murray taking off."  Or "hey, guys who are most frequently targeted against the Redskins haven't done well, guys who are secondary targets have."

But it doesn't really mean much when every game has different matchup/environmental contexts, etc.

Fair enough, but can't ignore someone saying they're literally No. 1

We're* I should say

I wouldn't ignore it.

But I would say that it is likely playing the Saints and the 49ers is gonna look very different for a running game than playing the Falcons and the Giants.

In the previous 3 games he averaged 21 fantasy points per game (.5 PPR format).

We should ignore that and draw conclusions from 7 carries? 

Sounds legit...
