  1. Starting TRich over Mark Ingram is tempting. Benching Alfred Morris. Starting Gio.
  2. He has been on the rehab field. Which means they are probably at least hoping to have him back. As others said, I doubt they would use one of their roster spots on a guy they know is not coming back this season.
  3. I haven't commented yet. I'm trying to contain my excitement about Ingram.
  4. Every single thread on the board is pretty much a WDIS-fest. Remember when this place was actually moderated? Two more weeks and the riffraff will clear out for six months. It's the fantasy playoffs. People care about his value this week (redraft), not just in "dynasty".Yeah, if you want to talk redraft value and look at snap counts, targets, etc. -- zero problem. I really don't give one single #### about who you're starting this week, though, and neither does anyone else. And that's about 90% of everything on this board lately. It's awful. Green was probably a recent pickup in redraft leagues, right? So then the issue becomes do you put him in over other guys and roll the dice. And who would you consider putting him in over? Sorry if you board police don't like it but who he is being started over in the next three weeks is directly related to his value in redraft. Why don't you just ignore those posts instead of complaining about them? There are a lot worse tendencies in the shark pool than offering comparison of what kind of decisions you are facing and what you are doing with them in the fantasy playoffs.

  6. I grabbed Holmes this week. I'm in a start 3 WR/TE league (no mandatory TE). I'm on bye this week so I have the luxury of waiting and seeing on Holmes. But he does strike me as possibly the type of guy who could make a splash for a team like mine. My WR3 position has been a bit of a hole this year. Right now I have a bunch of possible plug-ins. I'm looking at Bowe, D. Baldwin, Holmes, L. Green, G. Olsen, and C. Fleener. I'm leaning towards pairing Baldwin with Russell Wilson, but if Holmes makes some noise again this week I may take a flyer on him for weeks 15 and 16. I know no one cares about my team. The point being, Holmes could be one of those players who makes an impact for a couple weeks at the right time for certain teams.
  7. If you aren't in the playoffs it certainly is. Better luck next year. I don't see how anyone will be able to plug Harvin in at this point. There is a laundry list of guys I'd rather roll out who could have been picked up in the last couple of weeks. Harvin probably won't be fantasy relevant, but he may still make an impact in the NFL playoffs. Then again, you have to at least recognize the possibility that there are complications and he won't be able to be a difference maker even then.
  8. The upside is, Seattle is going to pull out all the stops to win home field advantage, its huge for them. This game against NO is huge since its also the tie-breaker. So yeah, everybody ought to cheer for the Saints. To be fair the game is far more important to the Saints. Hawks are a better road team than the saints, they also hold a larger lead within their own division. This is a must win for the Saints. It is a game they want to win it is not a must win. Spoken clearly like a Seahawk fan. Carolina breathin down your neck should make you nervous. They play the Panthers twice in the next 4 weeks, the Saints is hardly a must win. Sounds like someone is already setting up excuses. It might be a must win. We won't know for sure until the end of the season. But the Saints could easily look back at this game as being the difference. Yes, they'll probably make the playoffs if they lose. But they may not play any playoff games at home. You seem to be discounting Carolina as a legitimate threat to beat NO once or even twice.
  9. Over Royal and Baldwin. Bowe on bye. Been searching @ WR3 this year.
  10. Baldwin over Nicks this week? That is my dilemna. Royal as an outside consideration. (WR3).
  11. If you can get one of those receivers, then yes you have to consider it. I don't see those offers. I am not surprised you aren't seeing these offers proactively. My point is that after this week, VJAX owners may want to make those offers and see how other guys value him. In non-ppr, I would not trade Jackson for any of those guys. Jackson was not just a true WR1 last year, he was a stud. He has that potential. Scenarios: Vjax is nothing more than a flex/bye player going forward: 0% unless he gets hurt WR3: 20% WR2: 60% WR1: 20%
  12. general consensus in here is they have an elite talent in Wilson and are not using him enough Definitely not the consensus, or even general consensus. Only the consensus of delusional David Wilson owners. He can't even get more than 3.5 YPC during garbage time when defenses are in the prevent. He can't break tackles, can't hold onto the football, and can't pass protect. They're probably using him too much. I would concur, it is definitely not a consensus. But for some reason the majority of people here thought Wilson was an "elite talent" despite reality. No offense but this is a 79 page thread about a guy who couldn't beat out Andre Brown and is only starting due to injury. Psssst. Wilson was the starter before Brown went down. Brown was going to be third down and goal line. Also, I hardly think the book is written yet on David Wilson. This season got derailed for him because of his two fumbles in week one. Not true, they were listed as co starters, and Wilson was returning kicks. But if you want to split hairs, you got me, Wilson is a elite running back who can't get short yardage, is a liability on passing plays who was the starter because he had one percent more of a time share than the stud Andre Brown who's coach thought the best way to utilize him was on kick returns. I am shocked he can't handle the full load. Oh look, another person who has absolutely not idea what they're talking about. Umm, no? There were news reports about Wilson begging the coaches to be on Kick Return duty still and the coaching staff was telling him no. He also didn't field any KR's during the entire preseason. You mean no reports like this one five days before Andre Browns injury where he is listed as the number one kick returner and Coughlin states that he will pick and choose when to utilize Wilson on kick returns and the special teams coach Quinn said ""That’s all up to the powers that be," Quinn said. "Everyone realizes he is a weapon. If the time and the place is right, then I think we’ll put him in after we consult with everyone." Brown's injury changed the dynamic. Wilson was not intended to be the full time back this year but had to be pressed into service. That is why after Brown got hurt he was no longer in the special teams discussion. It is outlandish to think that a team might use the leading kick returner from the past year, who is listed as their #1 kick returner, when the head and special teams coaches say they will use him on kick returns. http://espn.go.com/blog/new-york/giants/post/_/id/27997/the-state-of-the-special-teams People are shocked that he is failing and providing a litany of excuses. My explanation is he is not very good or has not acclimated to the pro game yet or he would have won the starting job outright and not been a part of the special teams strategy. My theory certainly holds more water than "this guy is great and the coach is holding him back" nonsense. It's just willful ignorance to think that the team situation isn't preventing him from having greater success. Have you watched any of his games? There are defenders in the backfield on every running play. The offensive line has been terrible. No NFL running back would be succeeding behind that run blocking. It isn't helping that the coaches are telegraphing their moves. The fact is Kevin Gilbride has not come up with one creative way to give Wilson a chance to make a play in space.
