Saw the article earlier today.

 

If its REALLY true, then I have no issue discrediting the cheationships.

Me too. In fact, I think Brady and Bellichick should be banned from the NFL.  Why isn't this as serious as what Pete Rose did?  He is still in baseball limbo.

I am starting Storm this week because Gerhart is OUT and the matchup is good; but, realistically, I am just hoping for 10 fantasy points.

this may have more to do with this year than future years but... the situation reminds me a bit of the 2013 rams. 

 

through 4 games, rams had 62 carries for 160 yards. and nobody really wanted much to do with their RBs. stacy only had one carry up to that point. 

 

through 4 games, jags have 80 carries for 242 yards. and everybody's kinda low on their guys for rest of year FF points. 

 

we all know what happened last year with stacy and the rams... and the funny thing is it really took people a couple weeks to realize stacy was the guy to own there. he could still be had for pretty cheap even after his breakout game in week 5. consensus was he wasn't explosive or fast enough and wasn't much of an answer. granted he hasn't looked great this year but he definitely helped some dynasty teams last year who went out and grabbed him. 

 

who knows how it will turn out, but i'm willing to gamble on backup RBs on crappy offensive teams since they seem to be pretty easy to acquire. 

 

i'm buying. 

You're right that there usually is one or two of these guys each year.  Sometimes they have value the next year; sometimes they don't.  But I kinda think Brandon Oliver is that guy this year and also Crowell, possibly.  When I look at his college tape I don't like his speed or his build--he looks like a guy who will get hurt.  He is shifty, but it is hard for me to know if that jitter bug style will work because in the NFL the tackling is a lot better.  He does get his head and shoulder down at contact pretty well; and he did break a lot of tackles in college; and he showed good vision.  The pass protection will limit his opportunities until he masters it as others have said.

I picked up Storm for 0 bidding bucks this week.  Do I think he is going to be a star? No.  I really don't because I don't think the problem is Gerhart.  I think the problem is the offensive line.  That being said, he may get an opportunity and you never know. So, since the cost is so minimal you might as well pick him up as you churn the waiver wire.

I got Storm Johnson for $0.  Hillman went for 67% to someone else. Benny Cunningham for 32%.
