  1. Thoughts on Chris Boswell? He seems to be ranked really low everywhere, but here's his points in games he's played in: 6 15 7 4 11 10 10 So more games in double digits than under, and a pretty high floor so far. I've got Barth in there now but I don't feel great about it. All the "experts" have them both ranked pretty low, especially Barth.
  2. How are people feeling about starting Johnson this week against STL? Was happy to get him off waivers, but I'm not sure how I could put him in ahead of Martin, McFadden, and Lacy.
  3. Last week during the Eagles game I heard 2 different announcers, one on the radio and one on TV, question this because they obviously haven't been paying attention to Tampa Bay this year. Local Philly radio: "Yeah they seem to take Martin out and leave this guy Simms in for a while, I have no idea why." TV Announcer: "Doug Martin has not been seen for a while as Charles Sims has been on the field. Looks like Martin may be injured, stay tuned for an update." Clearly running for over 230 yards isn't enough to earn you the workhorse role these days.
  4. NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports Rob Gronkowski (knee) is "unlikely to miss more than one game" and "may not even miss that." Reports on Gronk injury have mostly been positive, but this news is better than anyone could have hoped after the tight end was carted off the field Sunday night. It sounds like Gronkowski got good news from his MRI Monday morning, but the full results are not yet know. His status will continue to be updated throughout the week.Source: Ian Rapoport on Twitter Nov 30 - 11:23 AM Talk about best-case scenario!
  5. NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports the "belief" is Marshawn Lynch is dealing with a sports hernia. Lynch is meeting with Dr. William Meyers in Philadelphia Monday to confirm the diagnosis. If Lynch does have a sports hernia, he will likely undergo surgery and be out for at least the rest of the regular season. Thomas Rawls rumbled for 255 total yards and two scores with Lynch out Sunday and will be the top waiver add this week if Lynch goes under the knife.Source: Ian Rapoport on Twitter Nov 23 - 8:07 AM
  6. This isn't the same Vikings defense as the ones that gave up a lot of yards to the Packers in the recent past. Nor is it the same Eddie Lacy that you wouldn't even think about benching.
  7. There's a good chance he will, as a 3rd stringer/practice squad guy when someone gets hurt. In other words, it won't matter. Dallas was the absolute ideal situation for him to be in. And here we are.
  8. This x1,000,000 If you get booted off of the Cowgirls for character issues, you have some serious problems. I am kind of sad this thread won't be as fun anymore though...
  9. I did too. Probably cost me the week. Maybe the season.
  10. Picked him up as a handcuff to McFadden, just let him go to grab a defense for the playoffs. I figure if(when) DMac goes down there's no reason to believe CMike will definitely have the starting job, and I have other RBs like Yeldon and Woodhead currently riding the pine just in case.
  11. Malcom Floyd might be averaging 25 yards per catch but that doesn't mean he's a better play than Julio Jones. Opportunity is everything in fantasy. Great example ... of something ? Which part is confusing? You pointed to yards per catch stats suggesting Lacy has been better than Starks. Yards per catch means nothing in fantasy football. PRODUCTION means everything. It's irrelevant if you think Lacy would do better with more opportunities. The point is he isn't getting them. Which should be the biggest red flag. If Lacy was playing so much better than Starks, the Packers would have him on the field more often.

  13. I'm not saying Starks is amazing or anything, all I know is this is what my bench looks like right now: Eddie Lacy: -1 point James Starks: 24.2 points This is a PPR league, and Eddie Lacy hasn't topped 20 points yet this season. That's all I need to know.
  14. From what I remember from last year, they like Bolden so much on special teams that they don't want to risk playing him at RB. White was the one who got the snaps when Lewis missed a game a few weeks back.
  15. This is true. But what's concerning to me is that Lacy just doesn't look good. It's not like he's averaging 5 yards per carry but just isn't getting enough touches. I admit I haven't been watching whole Packers games all year or anything, but the only play I can recall this year where he looked remotely good was that TD run against Denver last week.
  16. Eddie Lacy exited Week 9 against the Panthers with a groin injury. Lacy had been almost completely phased out of the offense after fumbling in the second quarter, but the injury knocked him out of the game for good. Lacy finished with just 10 yards on five carries, and he now has less than 50 yards rushing in all but two games this season. In a year of first-round busts, Lacy has been perhaps the most disappointing of all. Even if he plays this week, Lacy will be nothing more than a touchdown-or-bust RB3 against the Lions.

  17. Gotta figure whatever happened at practice last week had him in the doghouse for last night's game.
  18. That thing with the chest-bumping a Seattle player definitely seems like a red flag. If you wanna catch up with your former teammates, talk to them after the game. We see that stuff all the time. But in the middle of a game? After YOU just screwed up?
  19. Done. I'm benching him for Winston.Bad matchup for Indy on the road. TB will likely get slaughtered in Atl and I see some garbage points for Winston. That takes some serious b***s, good luck!
  20. He couldn't even get a shoutout in the Weekly Upgrades/Downgrades 100+ yards and 2 TDs just doesn't satisfy anyone when it's from a 135-pound "backup" RB.
  21. Haha I knew it was coming - from the Week 8 upgrades/downgrades RB Holding Steady - RB Christine Michael, DAL - Michael's opportunity came in the form of a Joseph Randle injury and Darren McFadden took it. The bye week hype amounted to nothing in Week 7. Michael is still more than capable and at least the Cowboys running game is on track, and with Joseph Randle missing time, Michael is a Darren McFadden injury away from being the #1 back. Meanwhile, Woodhead piles up over 100 yards and 2 TDs and doesn't even get a shout out.
  22. Yesterday around 7:00 I get a text from my fantasy nemesis: "Danny Woodhead over TJ Yeldon? Did you forget how to play fantasy football?" 30 seconds later... "You're a genius" A half hour later.... "And another TD. You're a guru."
  23. Bradford is the only first round bust at QB, that doesn't face any heat from his team's fan-base, in fact they have always and continue to make excuses for him. For a terrible QB (ETA: "terrible is probably too harsh, damn now I'm making excuses for him) he sure lives a charmed life from the viewpoint of not facing the ire of his teams' fans like all other bust QBs have. Ummmm...not facing the ire of his team's fans? How many decades has it been since you've spent time in the Philadelphia area?
  24. Yep this^^. I grabbed him off waivers for a $0 bid last week in a FF league filled with Vikings fans, and started him in place of John Brown his week. Dude I beat using Diggs is a huge Vikings fan. This forum rules. x3! This forum is great for finding out about guys a week before everyone else does. Was happily surprised I was able to snag him in both of the leagues I tried for him in. Didn't have high waiver priority in either. Was hurting for WRs in one PPR league where you start 3 WRs and a flex, had Beckham but then totally crapped the bed on Andre Johnson and Charles Johnson. Flipped Gates and Dion Lewis for JULIO last week, and added Diggs. Now have Julio, Beckham, and Diggs at WR with Gronk at TE
  25. lol, give it a break Cons. The war is over. You lost. Time to move on.
