  1. Hopefully not, we need him motivated to high point the ball.
  2. This is a total shot in the dark, but...what do you think the chances are of Arizona trading for a RB given Carson and Fitz's age and perhaps a desire to make a run this year? Certainly nobody can fill Johnson's shoes, but I'm guessing there COULD be someone to be had that would be better than the pending RBBC mess now. Would the saints consider trading Peterson for example?
  3. Lacy is a FA in my 10 team H2H league. Do you guys think he's worth dropping for a guy like Gore who is getting long in the tooth but still the undisputed starter? I don't mean to make this an Assistant Coach move, but curious where you rank Lacy.
  4. Please take one for the team, friend. Having lost Keenan, Sammy, and Moncrief, this clown is my #1.
  5. Gurley is crushing all of his peers on a yards per snap and touch per snap basis. No need to overthink this one. He might be the best pure runner of the football in the game already. I hope you're right. I'm holding and hoping. I just don't get all the masterbatory posts about him in here. The sample size is still very very very small. On the flip side, I'm not sure how you could own him and not be excited by what you're seeing. You could watch football for 40 years and never see something like this so if this doesn't impress you I'm not sure what will. Maybe you're the type that needs to 2 years of work for the production to be a reality. Look around at the RB landscape, look at their touch counts and usage and contrast with Gurley...look at the speed, the cuts, explosion...he's the complete package paired with the perfect coach...if you can't get excited about having him on your squad maybe you should do a different hobby. Well said. They can stack the box and still not stop him all game. I too was watching the box score with expectation that at least one mistake would turn into a TD run. It seems it is just a matter of time with him. Shoot, he's so good that Tavon Austin is looking like a good pick and the Nick Foles trade is a wash now. If people want to pull out all the long TD runs, we'll have to do that for EVERYONE, won't we? The gas pedal is on the floor with this kid.
  6. No offense, but if you offered me DT, I'd let that trade sit there until it expired while I cried about poor Peyton's arm falling off the cliff.
  7. So far this isn't going well. I've had Graham offered straight up, Kelce straight up, and Abdullah and Landon Collins. Oh, let's not forget Richard Rodgers straight up. Some one offered you Richard Rodgers for Gurley? Oh boy. While those other offers are bad at least they have some semblance of a "starting offer". Some one offering up Rodgers is just a dope. Well, I'm horribly lacking at TE, so obviously this was a fair offer. Richard Rodgers...Aaron Rodgers...easy to confuse the two, I'm sure.
  8. Heard on the radio this morning that Cam Chancelor has ended his holdout.
  9. -Denver has faced some tough D's -O line is young and inexperienced -Kubiak's O doesn't suit Peyton under center -CJ hurt his toe/ankle -Peyton played MUCH better in shotgun. It bought him time to throw and gave Sanders and DT time to get open -passing game will lead to more open lanes for CJ, he looked fine on the plays where there was an actual hole vs a wall of Red defenders blitzing and crashing in on him. Concern, yes. But no need to panic if you are an owner. CJ may not be a top 5 RB, but the potential is there for a solid season. Good buy low candidate in my eyes if the owner in your league has lost his head.
  10. He's already had a couple of games like this in the past, but then completely disappears afterwards. No idea why the coaching staff doesn't use him more, even when Gates is playing. Just for fun, I'd like to point out that this isn't really true. In his three year career prior to yesterday: -he has had 6 targets only twice -he has never had 5 receptions -he has equaled or topped 74 yards twice -he has topped 74 yards with a TD once So no, he hasn't really had a couple games like this in the past. The fact that he's only had two games with six targets is probably the reason why he's disappeared in the past after these fictitious similar games. The bold has a tad to do with that guy named Gates...arguably the best TE to play the game...playing in front of him.
  11. I hesitated but took CJ at 8 and Dez at 9 (little fun league with my son). Gotta love week 1 injuries to first and second round pics AND all the SKY is FALLING that comes with it.
  12. 9 weeks in the very beginning of his rookie season while playing for a terrible Tampa Bay team no less.
  13. Now Fasano resorted to purposely wipe out Kelce's catches in a pathetic effort of undermine Special K?
  14. GAMER! Why say this? On the field, he clearly decided very quickly that he definitely couldn't get it. The sentence in red says everything. The moment you think too much is the moment you make mistakes. It's not in a WR's mentality to run across the field and dive for the football. Does anyone think Randy Moss would have got that fumble? Brilliant deduction skills, Hopkins. In other news, water is wet, ice is cold, and you sir, are an IDIOT.
  15. ...on fantasy benches everywhere. I've started him every week. Don't ask... Haha damn I bet he's been a nice little surprise a few weeks there, eh? I've got a ton of options at my 2 flex spots and this news has me wondering if this is the week to give him a start. Would be starting over the likes of Patterson, Benjamin, Robinson and possibly Beckham. Sanu has been sitting on my bench but with the injury to Calvin Johnson, I may just have to pull the trigger this week. Interesting, I was reading something where even with AJ Green in the game, Sanu was getting about 8 targets a game, plus he has this knack for the big play. Now, imagine if Green is not there, his targets may well go into the double digits. He's definitely not a bad play as a # 2 WR with Green out. And with Green in, I think he's still a legit flex play. OK, here's what CBSSportsline has to say about Sanu: Mohamed Sanu coexisting fine with A.J. Green When Mohamed Sanu had 84 yards and a touchdown Week 2 against Atlanta, it seemed like just a byproduct of A.J. Green being sidelined by a sprained toe, but in two games with Green back in the lineup, Sanu has remained a regular part of the Bengals' passing game, getting at least eight targets in each. He had a season-high nine Week 5 at New England and was about as productive as Green, catching five passes for 70 yards and a touchdown. In standard leagues, he has now scored double-digit Fantasy points in three straight games. Sanu will never be to Fantasy owners what Green is, but he has good size and has delivered his share of big plays already this season. He won't be the most exciting waiver claim this week, but in leagues where wide receivers come at a premium, he might be a pretty nice find. No talk of Marvin Jones out of the picture due to injury and headed back?
  16. How about both cvnpoka and msudaisy just shut up and piss in each others pool via PM?
  17. I don't have a dog in this fight, but I agree with the steady and trustworthy. Gates looked slow to me the other night, however. He pushed off a linebacker to gain separation -vs- being able to run away from them in the past. Time will tell...but i think SD HAS to get Green in the game. Bring in TE #3 to block in two TE sets and get Green in the slot? It would be flat silly to waste this kid's talent.
  18. He trucked some cat on his way to the end zone. Didn't catch a number, so I don't know if StL's 2's were out there. ran over some little white dude...not surprised Racist
  19. The Rams were missing both starting DT's, MLB, top 3 CB's, DE Quinn barely played. Let's not jump the gun Couldn't see the game, this is why I asked. Thanks for the info.
  20. How is Ingram looking specifically? That Rams Defense isn't too bad.
  21. yep, hes like jimmy graham. Eddie royal injury is more beneficial to him than gates injury. Speaking of which, anybody know royals status going forward?Green is as fast and twice as big as Royal. Does Royal keep his job after injury with the way Green is playing?
  22. Carson Palmer along with that offensively offensive line may very well be holding him back.
  23. Gronk and Hernandez co-existed just fine there for a while... at 6'6" with 4.4 speed...Green is a WR-esque matchup nightmare on linebackers that appears to be coming into his own.
