  1. I'm rolling him out with some confidence in a 2QB league. He looked good last week, instantly makes the WR better and has to be hungry to get a starting job somewhere. Also, their running game is banged up so I expect them to air it out more against a weak Jax playing on the road. 25/38 290 3 1
  2. Anyone starting Janis this week assuming Cobb is out?
  3. I saw that as well in one of my FPCs. Insane that people will go that hard on a guy this early. I threw up a bid of 51% in one of my other FPCs and was shocked that I landed him. Next highest was 46%.
  4. I'm expecting to see some 80% bids but I wouldn't go more than 50%. A couple examples of FAAB insanity that I've seen this year in FPC leagues: 65% - James Jones 50% - Travis Benjamin 45% - Tavon Austin 40% - Anthony Dixon 30% - Kamar Aiken 25% - Dexter McCluster 20% - Jeff Janis I am going to bid just over 50% to keep everyone else in the league honest. I don't really need him but am willing to get rid of my backup QB to get him if it means keeping a potential stud off my opponents' teams. Agreed, although I believe this will be a true RBBC for ROS the hype around for this kid on the interwebs is starting to weigh on me. I'm willing going 50% as well but am pretty sure I'll lose.
  5. The irony about breast cancer awareness month in the NFL is that the very large majority of viewers are men. Men die from male-specific cancers (testicular and prostate). Men are notoriously bad at keeping up with regular medical check-ups, are known to be stubborn about ignoring medical ailments, and do not talk to one another about these ailments. So then, why in the world are we not using this golden opportunity to raise awareness about MENS health issues?
  6. "Best case" scenario is that West lights it up and Knile gets very few carries as a result. Absolute worst-case scenario is that neither West nor Knile do well, and the 3rd stringer starts getting some touches. De'Anthony Thomas will not be getting any meaningful carries, not sure how many times I have to repeat myself on that one. KC would not be working out potential 3rd-stringers if they were comfortable giving him the ball out of the backfield. Hell, Maclin has lined up in the backfield more than Thomas has this year. Not trying to be snarky or anything, but where are you getting the idea that there's a rift between Reid and the front office? Dorsey stays in the shadows as much as any GM I've seen. Pretty much impossible to tell what he thinks on anything, really. I've seen it reported in a few spots - here's one from Rotoworld: Bleacher Report's Jason Cole reports Chiefs coach Andy Reid prefers Charcandrick West to Knile Davis as Jamaal Charles' (torn ACL) replacement. West had taken over as Charles' backup leading up to the injury and should get the first crack at replacing the star runner. Cole cautions some in the organization believe Davis is a better fit as a featured runner, and Reid reportedly told both West and Davis they will see playing time. West is the better pickup of the two, but Davis needs to be added in most leagues as well. Oct 12 - 12:25 PM
  7. I think a relatively even RBBC may be the most likely scenario but certainly not best case. We really don't know what that is. Guys get opportunities and emerge all the time for stretches of the season that can have a major impact on FF. Look at Freeman and Dion Lewis for the early part of this year, Forsett and CJ Anderson last year. A guy like Moreno in 2013 or even the one great season Peyton Hillis had. Best case is that West or Davis emerge as a feature back and a viable FF play the rest of the season. That said, I understand the caution. KC's offense has not looked great this year and Alex Smith is uninspiring to say the least. But there's a decent chance that there significant value here for the cost of a waiver wire pickup. I already rostered West and have the #2 ww claim that I'm thinking about using on Davis who was just cut Sunday morning. I have a short bench in this league but to me its worth rostering both for a week or 2 to see how it plays out. Worst case is that neither looks to have sustainable value this season and you cut bait and move on. When I said "best case" I was saying that a RBBC is the best I can actually see it turning out. I don't envision either Davis or West taking the job and running with it. It'll be a mostly even split ROS. So what was your BEST CASE scenario for Devonta Freeman or Dion Lewis this year? LeVeon Bell, DeMarco Murray, CJ Anderson, Justin Forsett or Jeremy Hill last year? Joique Bell or Knowshon Moreno in 2013? There's a range of possible outcomes here. An unproductive RBBC is certainly possible. But let's not pretend that West doesn't have breakout potential. Yes, there are always a range of outcomes but MY personal opinion, which ain't worth jack, is that I don't see KC being anything better than a RBBC this year. It's my humble opinion and sure anything can happen but I'm not going crazy trying to get West or Knile. I just don't see either of them breaking out.

  10. I hate to be a wet blanket but I have a bad feeling about that backfield. I think the BEST case scenario is a two-man even RBBC but it could also end up where 3-4 guys (D. Thomas and a FA) are splitting carries. Also, there seems to be a rift in the organization where Reid loves West but upper management prefers Davis. Lastly, KC is absolutely terrible this year and were not putting up a ton of points even with JC back there. Not much to get excited about imo.
  11. Missed the cutoff by 5 points. Man, it hurts to get knocked out so early!
  12. http://o.ffense.com/fbg35k/ Thanks. Maybe I should have asked...I'm only at 135 with only Ivory left. My best RB2 of the week was...Duke Johnson with 4.3 and best flex was Wheaton with 8.7. So ugly!
  13. Where are you guys seeing your week 2 point total? I only see week 1 when I check my status. I have Romo / Eli / Bradford and a few other duds so I'm probably on my way out.
  14. Its a devious contest. Just when you think you have everything perfectly ironed out there's a sudden wrinkle that ends up unravelling the entire roster and you're back to square one.
  15. It's already been changed to Pitt. Ah, ok. I thought they didn't make any updates at all once it was set. Technically not an update like adding or removing players. Just a correction since he switched teams. Players that get traded during the season will be moved to their new team too. JAX was removed? eta - No JAX, 2 PIT kickers Actually they have 3 PIT kickers now: Suisham / Hartley / Scobee
