  1. 10 tm league Dropped Foster, Yeldon, M. Bennett Currently in their place Gillislee, Tyrell Williams, T. Pryor
  2. He has looked good but he's not getting reps because of pass pro and he had the same problems in college. Also it is pretty doomed to be RBBC I think. He definitely could become startable but I think it's more flashes for next year.
  3. Smallwood - Mathews is on borrowed time, I think, and Smallwood has shown he can get yards in chunks. I don't think he's a 20 carry a game guy though, but would still be a good RB2 on less if Mathews is hurt. Kelley - Didn't want to be tackled in the carries he had last week. Jones had a good game too, but really Kelley was the one who took the heart out of the D early. Jonathan Williams - Gillislee has looked good too. If McCoy misses a bunch of games, those guys will get a lot of carries.
  4. 12 team PPR start qb, 2rb, 2wr, 1rb/wr, te, d, k R Cobb for 2017 1, 2, 3 (currently 3-3 with good shot at playoffs)
  5. Big win even without cap
  6. I'm seeing he's (Crockett) on IR based on a shoulder injury. Could be eligible to return week 9?
  7. He's a good RB and would definitely be startable if D. Johnson got hurt. If the question is would he get an absurd amount of volume in order to become a top 5-8 play each week - like DeAngelo and Hightower did last year - that is unlikely. But he has potential to break out 60+ yard runs that some of these other lotto tickets don't have. I don't view Kerwynn Wiliams as a threat as he is sort of the same back but worse. I don't view Taylor as a NFL player. He might vulture TDs (or Fitz/Floyd might get more) but he isn't a limit to Ellington's volume. I would feel better starting him than Powell or Draughn, but that's not necessarily an argument he deserves to be in the top list.
  8. As an Eagles fan I don't really like PHI schedule going forward. They had 2 layups early then gave their game of the year. A tough stretch 10-13 but then some good home matchups during fantasy playoffs. @DET is an okay matchup (slight trap game risk) but NE @ CLE is much better of course. I would bet on NE playing with a chip on their shoulder.
  9. If Sims is out, Is there another RB in TB other than Quizz Rodgers? Mike James was signed to Detroit's practice squad earlier this week.
  10. Did this trade in 2 leagues. One PPR, one standard. The standard is a rebuild, willing to punt. The PPR I am competing but have depth and you only have to start 1 RB. Jeremy Hill for Watkins
  11. Also, if Ryan Mathews is out then Smallwood and/or Barner are flexable against DET next week
  12. Woods BUF, last man standing at WR there, had 7/89 Eddie Royal CHI is fools gold, probably but maybe worth throwing out there if Hoyer starts again Inman SD finally had his "poor man's KAllen game" and Tyrell had some mistakes could make Inman less risky week to week Terrance Williams had a good game, but Butler almost had a 2nd TD and is flexable if Dez misses again Celek's brother had a good game in SF and is probably startable as long as McDonald is out Quick, mentioned above, looked great in his two big plays, but hard to trust
  13. Was Tamme available as a FA?
  14. At least I know it was ok not to bother fishing for Tyrell this week.
  15. Abdullah over a late 1st. A top 5 pick over Abdullah by a lot.
