  1. It is becoming very difficult to justify hanging onto Fulgham. I will likely wait another week before I cut Fulgham loose from my dynasty team, but after two consecutive duds, there is no way Fulgham is seeing my lineup this week despite a good matchup. There are some decent options available on the waiver wire (N. Agholor, T. Patrick, D. Byrd), so Fulgham is going to have to really show something to justify his fantasy roster spot. If he can get back on track, he does have decent matchups Weeks 15 and 16, but are you willing to trust Fulgham (or, more importantly, Wentz and Peterson) with your fantasy championship on the line? I think I am holding him for now just so I don't end up facing him later only to see him knock me out of the playoffs!
  2. The Miami backfield going forward is a puzzle, but there is certainly fantasy value to be mined. Gaskin looked very good, and I would assume he reclaims his starting role once healthy, but I foresee a committee approach. Salvon Ahmed really shined last week, and I have the feeling he is not going away, but he strikes me as more of a change-of-pace scat back, rather than an every-down back. The one who has me especially puzzled is Breida. We saw moments of excellence from him in the Niners' dynamic run offense, and I feel like he could be the most talented back on the Dolphins' roster, but he has been a complete dud since he arrived in Miami. If Breida is able to go Sunday, he should get some touches (perhaps the start?), and we will see if he can turn things around. For those expecting Ahmed to repeat last week's numbers, monitor Breida's status closely.
  3. Zeke's dynasty value remains elite, in my estimation. A lot of people seem to be chicken littleing because the Dallas offense is struggling without Dak right now, but Zeke is only 25 years old, he has never had a serious injury, and, despite his current woes, there is no indication Zeke's skills have suddenly diminished. The Dallas O-line is struggling, defenses are stacking the box, and Zeke has gutted it out through a lingering hamstring injury. Relax. With the return of Dak Prescott in 2021, the Cowboys should have one of the more prolific offenses in the league. Opposing defenses will have to contend with a myriad of weapons downfield, and that should open up the running game for Zeke. I'm not selling my shares of Zeke for anything less than top dollar. This isn't the time to sell Zeke. It is the time to buy low in dynasty where you can from owners who are panicking.
