  1. Starting him over Ajayi and hoping for the best.
  2. He is... just so fast you can’t even see him.
  3. Waiting for the inevitable Winston pick now. Wipe out the 1 point he gave me tonight.
  4. Unfortunately so was Blount and White. Gonna be frustrating. Feel like hes gonna need to break one to have any kind of decent fantasy day.
  5. Like most threads, this entire conversation is speculative. All the chatroom doctors and pilots in the world can't predict Zeke's propensity to get hurt in Week 16. No one really knows how many quarters Zeke will play against Detroit. I'm not even sure the coaches know at this point. What I do know is... if you're in the finals and you're following this thread, Zeke is probably the main reason you made it. Dude has been an absolute beast this year and a blast to watch. If they pull him early and he ends his day with 70 yards and 2 or 3 catches, I can live with it. What I couldn't stomach is leaving him on my bench in the League Championship and watching him go for 100 yards and 2 scores at halftime, while I got Terrence West in his place playing a whole game and finishing with 27 yards.
  6. In all my years playing fantasy football, I don't ever recall a team that was coasting through the season resting their starters the last TWO weeks of the season. It's certainly not something the Patriots would do. If I'm the coach, I let the kid at least attempt to make a run at the rookie rushing title. Injuries happen in football. Zeke is just as likely to tear up his knee in practice getting ready for Week 1 of the playoffs as he is playing this week against Detroit. I gotta believe Zeke gets his normal workload at least through the 1st half. And I'm in the same boat as many of you, one half of football from Zeke is better than my other options (currently Dion Lewis, Forte and T. West), so I'll be taking the gamble.
  7. Zeke is roughly 250 yards away from Eric Dickerson's rookie rushing record with 2 games left. I imagine he, and the entire offensive line, would love to break that record. Not suggesting they would risk using him in Week 17, but if he racks up yards early in the game this weekend... it'll make for some interesting decisions for the Dallas coaching staff.
  8. 26 points in PPR. I actually tried to take him out of my lineup last minute when they announced Forte as the starter... but RT Sports locked me out. Got real lucky on that one.
  9. Powell straight up killing it in PPR. 21 points and counting...
  10. 10 PPR points for Powell in the 1st Quarter. I'll take it. Be stoked if he can double that by the time this games over.
  11. 3 field goals of 50+ in the 1st half. Every one of them cleared by 10 yds. And he's kicking outdoors. I think he's up to 32 straight FGs. Really is remarkable.
  12. He's been killing me all year with his back and forth production. With Gronk out again figured this past Sunday was a no-brainer start. Now I gotta decide if I'm ready to roll the dice on him this week with Gronk reported to be out again. My other options are Witten and Gates.
  13. Torrey Smith hasnt done a thing since Kap took over. His main receiving targets have been Kerley and Patton. Can't imagine Smith being out will affect his numbers much. Kap's biggest hurdle will be himself. I'm starting him today over Winston. I have a lot of starters on BYE and need a high upside play. Hoping for a lot of bonus rushing yards from Kap in garbage time. Biggest concern is the Pats eating up time of possession all day and completely dominating the game.
  14. In a season with so much inconsistency at RB and so many injuries... if Miller is healthy... I gotta start him. My only other option would be picking up a guy like Robinson, Bryce or Bolden off waivers. I've road Miller all year and I can't see getting cute and replacing him with a waiver option in the semi-finals. His upside is too high and the matchup too good. I also think as banged up as the San Diego offense is, maybe Miami won't be in a hole the entire 2nd half and Miller will actually get a full game's worth of usage. Wouldn't that be nice.
  15. Miller's lack of usage IS frustrating to watch. But even with his limited touches, he's still the #4 RB in my PPR keeper league, so I've been pretty damn happy with him. Helped me lead the league in total points and get a 1st Round BYE. Maybe his limited number of touches has contributed to him being healthy going into week 15. If he was touching the ball 20 times a game all season, who knows if he would have made it this far. That being said... if he goes 8 carries for 48 yards this weekend, pretty sure I'll be ready to smash my televsion.
  16. As a Julio owner with a 1st Round Bye, I'm actually rooting for him to have a modest showing against Carolina on the road this week. Then the offense makes the proper adjustments so he can vindicate himself against Norman at home in Week 16... provided I'm fortunate enough to make it to the finals in Week 16. But hey that's just my selfish agenda. Doesn't help those teams who need him this week. Anyone else rolling with this thought process?
  17. Dude is #1 in my PPR league. Over 100 catches and over 1300 yards through 3/4 of a football season? That's pretty damn impressive. Basically almost matched his totals from 2014 already. There's a lot of guys whose production you can be disappointed in this year but Julio isn't one of them.
  18. Same boat. Fortunate to have a 1st Round Bye in the playoffs, so only need him for Weeks 15 and 16. Expecting him to shred the Jags in Week 15 and hopefully have a bounce back game against Carolina (assuming he's held in check in Week 14). Just glad that second matchup with Carolina is at least a home game. For those with a first round playoff game, I think if you can survive your Week 14 match, Julio will be fine for you the rest of the way.
  19. I don't think anyone is excited about the Carolina matchups in Weeks 14 and 16. But if you are fortunate enough to be IN the playoffs, chances are its in large part to what Julio has done this year. So the real question is... who actually has the guts to bench him in the playoffs?
  20. Good for you. A better name is "Got You're Under Rawls" I kinda like Rawls Deep.
  21. On board myself. Only because I don't have many other options on a team spiraling downward. Starting him over Pierre, Karlos and Matt Jones.
  22. Similar situation. Except I also lost Jamal Charles too. Left choosing between David Johnson and Darkwa as well. Going with Darkwa simply because I expect him to touch the ball more.
  23. In a 12-team redraft where I lost Jamal Charles, I'm stuck choosing between Jones and Alf pretty much every week. Probably starting Jones (assuming he's active) and hoping for the best. Just feel like he has way more upside than Morris.
