  1. I own Gordon and can't wait to start him week 12, but this is a stretch imo unless you're playing in a 2-QB or 16 team league.
  2. Man, if Jimmy can just get back to full health my evil plan to dominate my league with Gronk and Graham on the same team might actually come to fruition. Played Jimmy last week as well as last night.
  3. That's the way I look at it. I've had him for 4 season in a keeper league and last week was the first time he didn't produce anything when playing with an injury. I got crap on another forum for saying people should start him last week but as I told them, I'd do the same today if I had the same information I did on Sunday. In the process of making a trade to get Graham in my other league, most likely giving Vereen and Cameron for him. Buy low sell high and all that good stuff
  4. Surprised as anyone that he may play this week. Glad it looks like he won't be out for a few more weeks, but I'm not thrilled they may rush him back. I'd rather they let him fully heal first. I feel like they rushed him last year with his foot thing and he ended up playing at far less than 100% for most of the season. That said, if Jimmy plays he's in my starting lineup. This is my 4th year of owning him and trust me, even in a limited capacity he's well-worth the start. Last year I remember his first week back from injury he only played on like 20 snaps or something when they were in the red zone. He had like 3 catches for 15 yards....and 2 TDs.
  5. Kicking butt on my bench! Whatever, happy they've decided to basically make him a bellcow #1 RB... this week.
  6. Gotta hope they stay in the playoff hunt though. if they have a losing streak, by the time Gordon is available, Manzier may have already neutralized him. I don't know, didn't Johnny Football pretty much make his college career on throwing up bombs to Mike Evans? No way I'd let go of Gordon, though in that league we have larger benches than most. Surprisingly, with Andre Johnson, Keenan Allen, and Percy Harvin, my WRs are holding my team back. Week 12 can't get here soon enough. I'll start him in his 1st game without thinking twice.
  7. Great post. As a Penn State fan who watched every minute he played in college, I completely agree. Happy with Jordan Matthews, but I wanted my Eagles to draft Robinson. Guy came out of nowhere to lead the Big10 in receiving 2 years in a row. He had over 1,400 yards and 97 catches in COLLEGE last year, and would still be a senior this year if he didn't leave for the NFL. He may not be the fastest guy, but he can beat people in space and above all is RELIABLE. If Penn State was down and needed to throw a lot, they could throw it to him almost every time, and he'd always make the play. I realize I'm a biased homer, but I think he's gonna be the real deal.
  8. So bitter I could've picked this kid up a few weeks and instead got enamored with Jordan Matthews. (Eagles fan here) Just didn't have the patience... This may have been discussed, but is AP expected back in Minn next year? I'm in a league that keeps 2 Vets and 1 Rookie each season so having a stud rookie RB can be huge. (My rookie keeper from last year is Le'Veon In this league I start 2 RBs and have Bell, Gore, and Jeremy Hill so I'm more interested in what his prospects are for 2015 and beyond.
  9. So I'm in a keeper league (not dynasty), but we keep 2 Vets and 1 Rookie each year. Already have Brandin Cooks, so I am considering dropping Jordan Matthews for McKinnon. I have the last shot at waivers this week but I think unless they announce a suspension for AP tonight I should be able to get him. Seems weird to me how silent the NFL has been on AP thus far, and with the Governor of Minn calling out the Vikings among others, I think there's a good chance he ends up missing a bunch of games/ rest of the season. So, is he worth the stash? Wouldn't be getting him for immediate help of course, more the possibility of helping later in the year or possibly next season. Thanks!
  10. As someone who had Bell last year and is using him as my rookie keeper, the Blount news doesn't really bother me. One of the best things about Bell is his consistency, and I think when you include receptions he is going to get a ton of touches again. While Bell certainly didn't set the world on fire last year, he was pretty much a lock for at the least 80-100 total yards per game. With all the RBBC's these days, that kind of consistency is rare.
