Someone dropped McKinnon so he gets the start over Martin and Ekeler

Wish I was in that league.

He was doing alright at the beginning, but they have definitely been mixing in all the other backs plenty, so not looking great.

Would have been over the moon with 50 and a td. Everyone has been running over the Dolphins. Even that is too much to hope for. Maybe it's poor line play but at this point, who cares about the reasons, he's not startable.

His o-line sucks.  I haven't seen bad decisions or running by Martin.  He gets what is there.  But Miami is almost taking the handoffs

Agree. It’s not Martin

Last he hit double digits on October 22nd.

Drafted him as my RB3. Turns out he’s my RB4. Life goes on.

Maybe he just sucks when he can't use steroids.  That is what he was suspended for and might explain the huge performance gaps in his career.

 

He was busted for Adderall.

Word around Tampa is he was using it to recover from partying with Molly.

This dude seriously drives me crazy.  He shows flashes of upside that make him look like a good start.  You start him and he does nothing.  You then bench him and he goes off.   He’s too good to drop but not consistent enough to start with confidence.  Just an annoying fantasy player to own .

I benched him, he did nothing.

You guys get points for touches?

Me neither. But if we played in PPT leagues, he and Mixon would be studs.

Due to his volume he is a roster clogged. Can't drop him as someone will pick him up and he will hit a hot streak. Can't start him

 

what a revolting development

31 yards in the first quarter.  Finishes with 38. Ugh

And TB was leading for much of the game as well.  He's going to my bench for the rest of the year.

He did have a 40 yard completion overturned by a penalty nowhere near the play. Don't know if that's better or worse.

EDIT: Evidently one owner is still a believer. Just flipped him and Robbie Anderson for Diggs. Couldn't. Be. Happier.

Well, either that or the fact that Anderson has been out-producing Diggs this season?

For starters it's not a steroid.

Good chance I'm dropping.

I don't see a spot on the schedule where I'd trust him.

If he can't produce against Miami, he flat out can't anywhere.

It was definitely because of Anderson.

Link?

It's banned because it's an amphetamine.

It greatly dilutes metabolites of steroids. It’s a masking agent.

In addition, there is less stigma attached to Adderall. It’s widely believed players have often been advised by their agents or lawyers to claim they got popped for that rather than steroids. The NFL, by virtue of a confidentiality provision in its contract with the NFL union, never discloses the substance involved in a violation.

Finally, Adderall, which is banned by virtually every sports organization, provides many benefits to athletes, say medical experts. "There's no question it's a performance-enhancing drug," says Dr. Gary Wadler, a past chairman of the World Anti-Doping Agency's Prohibited List Committee. 

“It masks fatigue, masks pain, increases arousal — like being in The Zone. It increases alertness, aggressiveness, attention and concentration. It improves reaction time, especially when fatigued. Some think it enhances hand-eye coordination. Some believe it increases the mental aspects of performance.”

Anybody actually do this?   I'd like to drop him out of spite, but I know what will happen as soon as somebody else puts him in their lineup.  Slim pickings on the ww, I may have to rest my muscle for awhile.

I’m holding. Nice to have decent depth headed into playoffs. Hoping for some kind of resurgence. He’s a better option then any other RBs currently On the wire.

When did Doug Martin lose all goal line work? Peyton Barber is getting all the work inside the 5.

He's hurt.  I think he lost his job though
