  1. The fact that Fangio won't even be considered for our HC is just another example of why the Bears will continue to lose. Bad management and worse ownership. He's been forced to do a lot with very little and this last year, put together a very good unit when everyone was healthy. Whoever ends up with him will have an overperforming defense next year
  2. Hey sometimes guys just have to get acclimated to an offense and situation. Don't forget, Dashaun Watson threw for 0 TDs against Cincy in week 2 and we saw how that went for every other DST going forward against him
  3. I've had the 1st round bye locked in for 2 weeks so I went with Detroit without worry and don't need to use them next week but man... that was a painful game to have a stake in. For week 15, still like them against the Bears. Week 14 is a crap shoot. They are a match up play based on bad opponents, it's definitely not on the back of their own performances at this point.
  4. Quincy Enunwa as a what the hell stash. He was a breakout candidate before injury and a free agent going into this offseason. He could be the next Brian Quick, flash in the pan and nothing after injury but he looked good last year. I've had him stashed all offseason on IR
  5. The McKissic love is more about the situation. - The offensive line is bad but he has consistently been able to get yards where others haven't. - He is the exclusive passing downs back in an offense that has become throw first because all the other runners are ineffective. - PC is a coach who does not let draft pedigree or veteran status dictate a player's opportunity. He is undrafted and could very well be a work horse by year's end. Those things make him a very intriguing pick up in my book. Also, he is probably free to get and therefore, an easy drop if it doesn't work out.
  6. Absolutely. If the Seahawks are smart, they will turn him into Chris Thompson or James White and mostly abandon traditional running
  7. This is an absurd question. Cohen has been droppable for weeks and Duke is a top 15 guy in PPR. Just becuase you don't have the stones to start him, doesn't make him droppable. He has been an extremely pleasant surprise this year Also, not seeing anyone recommending him but JD Mckissic for free is a good add in my book. I envision the Seahawks doing a lot of passing and eventually giving up on the run except through short passes. No Prosise makes Mckissic a sneaky add
  8. Oh no... he threw punches and completely blind sided Lattimore. I love Evans, I'm a homer, but he's going to get suspended and deserve it. You don't blind side someone like that unless the guy is actively taking shots at one of your boys
  9. Don't have anyone on the team but what a blow for the NFL and Houston as a team. It's not even about fantasy football, it's a shame for him because of his historic pace and a shame for the sport.
  10. I think this is a great trade by the 49ers. They get to evaluate Jimmy this season which gives them 2 pieces of information: is he who we think he is (probably) and, if he is, how does the current offense fit in with him? That will tell them what they need to do in free agency and the draft. As for his contract situation, he will be the second most sought after free agent in the league this off season. By trading a second rounder for him though, they own his rights and can franchise or transition tag him. They will try to negotiate with him and woo him over to the idea of being their guy but if he balks, the transition tag would be excellent for locking him up on a long term contract. They have the money to do it. To summarize, QB in his prime that is a better prospect than most 1st round QBs and literally can't escape your team for the next 2-3 years unless he retires or dies. All for a 2nd round pick. Sign me up.
  11. I'm assuming the broncos defense went drinking the night before. Once again, can we talk about how they take Anderson out when they get to the redzone. The guy had two 10 yard runs and a 7 yarrd catch this drive. better give him an extended breather...
  12. TB is generally not a playable match up, won't argue that one. The others, definitely going to disagree. BAL is middle of the road at best with some real duds, GB is a mess with Hundley, CIN reliably gives the ball away and CHI is the most predictable offense in the NFL. MIN is a wild card, really depends on who is healthy, but DET put up a solid score against them once this year already. I'll take my shot with them, there will be better match ups but week to week waivers are a crap shoot. They at least will provide consistency
  13. What would it take to convince you? They have finished 6th, 2nd, 5th, 7th, dud, and 6th weekly throughout the season and are 4th overall on the season with their bye already taken. I'm not saying they are going to go all Jacksonville on you and win you your week but they feel like a lock as a top 5 finisher that just keeps putting up consistent above average numbers.
  14. Why is nobody talking about Detroit as a rest of season play? 46% owned in Yahoo, double digit points every week but 1 and after this week has: @GB (Hundley is a joke) vs. CLE @CHI vs. MIN @BAL @TB (playoffs) vs. CHI (playoffs) @CIN (championship) That is 3 solid weeks in a row starting next week, followed by 2 ok match ups, 1 that I wouldn't start them for, and 2 bunnies to end the year. Snap them up if you can, I know I did.
  15. He was probably pretty proud of himself, that was his longest run of the season
