  1. Maybe Ware was gassed? Were they mixing up the scheme? I don't know, I didn't watch the game. If Ware was rolling and didn't need the break it's idiotic.
  2. I agree. I think GB is gonna try a bunch of different stuff over the next couple weeks just like they did in the final few drives (after game was pretty much locked up). They ran Cobb out of the I; Flexed the FB at HB out of the shotgun; used Ty as an HB in shotgun; ran Ty in motion from empty set; played Ty in the slot; ran K Davis from the I and shotgun HB; and put a lot of focus on Cobb and the FB (forgot his name) in different schemes. Hard to say where Ty's value goes since i don't think GB knows yet. But he has a good shot to be involved meaningfully somehow. I would consider selling high offers personally, but am also happy to hold and see where it goes. Plus i like the kid.
  3. Wow not sure whether to play him now. WR4 + RB3 production?
  4. Follow Josina AndersonVerified account‏@JosinaAnderson I'm told #Bills RB LeSean McCoy (hamstring) is not playing this Sunday and could miss more time thereafter, depending on healing.
  5. STUD athlete. Won the Biletnikoff after his junior year then went pro.
  6. ESPN Packers reporter Rob Demovsky said WR Ty Montgomery "will get the majority of the running back reps" Thursday night against the Bears. Montgomery was used heavily in the backfield even with Eddie Lacy (ankle) active last week. With Lacy out and newly-acquired Knile Davis working with the scout team as recently as Tuesday, Montgomery will get the vast majority of backfield work against the Bears. He is a great option in PPR leagues and should push for standard value as well. Source: Mike Clay on Twitter Oct 20 - 9:54 A
  7. My thoughts -- i own Booker but not CJ -- i think CJ looks just fine out there. Booker had some nice runs but so did CJ. I don't think Denver is helping CJ with any kind of rhythm or scheme at this point. Their playcalling just seems off. And putting in Booker won't solve those issues. Selfishly i hope it does, but I'm not seeing the obvious upgrade here. Of course I'll hold onto Booker but its not like he's a David Johnson sitting on the bench like last year in Arizona. Maybe I'm missing something.
  8. i agree with Ninja (and Waldman) that Coates has issues around hand/eye and ball tracking that are very problematic. And not easily correctable. Which sucks for him. But they can be improved to some degree even as the season progresses. What Coates does have is an elite ability to get separation and get open. Few guys in the entire league can get open like he does, even at his raw stage . For a QB like BigBen who is used to hitting very tight windows, throwing to Coates is a frigging layup. Thats why he will keep going to him. And as long as Coates catches some/most he will keep feeding him. I own Coates but am sitting him this weekend until the hand heals. But I'm still a buyer even at these levels.
  9. I just picked Thomas up after watching more of his tape. Really good body control, fluid, quick, appears to have great hands. Unless he gets bumped by more experienced pass catchers i think he's better than a WR3 ROS.
  10. How does the bye week factor in? Whatever the suspension, is it "games" or "weeks" he would miss?
  11. IF you believe that Chip Kelly's offense will run the up tempo, most-plays-run-per-game pace that they have in the preseason, how does DeSean Jackson not have a GREAT season, aside from injury? I dont feel like the kid has been talked about much so far, and Im sure its because he's been very inconsistent for the past 2 (3?) years. But if he stays healthy, then it doesn't matter if Vick or Folk are QB, as without Maclin, he's the man. Lots and lots of targets getting DJ in space and i'm thinking about really good things for the kid. I haven't drafted yet, but as I finalize my rankings I'm thinking a strong WR2 just ahead of Bowe, Amendola, and Garcon...
  12. I'm ranking Wilson ABOVE CJ2K, Forte, and SJAX in standard leagues. And a toss up with Rice. Wilson has the talent as we've seen. PROS -- Explosive, and great balance. Im assuming good vision, but thats TBD. Has the passing game with Eli and elite WRs to keep the pressure of the line and give him the 8-10 opptys per game to break a long one. No backup.CONS -- How's the OL (any thoughts NYG homers)? He's never done it for a whole season before. Unpredictable, mercurial coach.THOUGHTS -- I think D Wilson is built like the kind of back who can last an entire season. D Martin was a rook last year and no one questioned his workload. Wilson isn't as stout as the Rice/Martin/MJD mold, but he's got their balance and so is hard to tackle and maybe more explosive.CJ2K has done it before big time. PROS -- Improved OL. Run game will be the focus of the game plan. Head coach is a former OL. Super fast. Seems re-motivated this season.CONS -- Seems more fragile than the stockier guys. Easier to tackle. Not a great passing game to take the pressure off. Inconsistent results. Green is a decent backup.Forte has also delivered the goods before. PROS -- Good all-round RB. Offensive scheme rebuilt around running game. Improved OL. CONS -- Doesn't seem as explosive as some of the other guys, but solid all around. I don't trust his QB. Obviously more value in PPR than standard. Bush is a decent backup.I realize this isnt a technical comparison of these guys as much as a subjective collection of thoughts. I really think that Wilson is primed to enter the Top7 THIS SEASON. I had planned to draft CJ2K or Forte from my spot, but probably going DW. High risk move I know...
