Travis Homer, SEA RB

Recommended Posts

With all the attention being shifted to Beast Mode and Robert Turbin reunion, what about Travis Homer emerging at the RB to own in week 17 and into the playoffs? What if Homer is the guy who emerges and these other two guys help complement the rushing attack? Homer also is known to catch a few passes as well.

Travis Homer RB, Seattle Seahawks

Speaking Tuesday, Seahawks coach Pete Carroll said the team would "lean on" Travis Homer in the running game for Week 17 against the 49ers.

Marshawn Lynch, and to a lesser extent Robert Turbin, are understandably getting all the media attention, but Homer will be the Seahawks' only active back who was on the roster before Week 17. The sixth-round rookie is the undoubted touch favorite for a game the Seahawks desperately want to get. Homer, who has carried the ball eight times for 52 yards during the regular season, posted a 19/85/0/4.5 line in the preseason. He is capable of catching passes. Homer will have DFS punt play appeal.

I can't believe Roto gets away with saying this. Who said anything like "undoubted" there about touches and DFS? This is what happpened with Boone on Monday. What on earth is wrong with fantasy guys?

Yeah, I'm resigned to it. But you'd figure they'd at least have quality control or something.

Homer was one of my super-deep late-4th "dart" draft picks, but never made my roster.

Homer is a smaller (lighter) RB at 202 & that's very difficult to overcome, but he showed enough ability that I became somewhat interested given the situation. By situation, I mean an unproven Carson & what looked like a potential bust in Penny (at the time).

It'll be interesting to see what Homer can do if he gets a chance.

I don't doubt that he's ahead of Turbin and Beast Mode coming in off the street. 

It's another shot for us to see what a rookie RB can do.  Penny presumably won't be back until later in the season next year, so Homer could be a sneaky stash if you are not a long term Carson believer.

If Homer has a good game what does that say about him for the future?

That he has the ability to have at least one good game at the NFL level?

Fair point, but it’s a legitimate question given the long-term nature of the Penny and Carson injuries.

All that said, Homer doesn’t seem like the prototypical big back though that Carroll prefers.

All joshing snark aside, there is a value to showing you can do it at this level. Even once.

But you can’t much extrapolate from one game very often - unless you see some ungodly talent, which we’d likely have heard about prior and needed to confirm rather than witness. As such, I don’t think we’d learn much from one game regardless, other than seeing if the guy looks like he can do it, at the least.

Agreed, although if he performs well, it could be at least two games including the playoffs - unless Lynch shows he has something left in the tank.

This weeks matchup isn’t great

Just listened to MJD talk about Beast Mode running directly at SF who may be missing one of their top defensive run stoppers? Add to the mix that SEA is a run first offense, has a massive offensive line, and did beat SF 27-24 the first go around in week 10. They like to pound the ball. Perhaps it's Homer to start, Lynch to pound some, and back n' forth with Turbin picking up 3-5 carries as well. Someone will get at least one rushing TD from that group?

This outta be a very loud and ruckus 12th man stadium with electricity in the air as the Beast Mode reunion in the locker room and on the field. Who emerges with RB fantasy points no one knows. I hear seat prices in SEA are at a premium. Kind of a cool way to end the regular season. We'll see if the game is entertaining or disappoints? Another close one score game I imagine?

Many feel that SEA is so banged up at RB that SF will prevail and SEA got dinged at the wrong time. From a potential first round bye to perhaps getting bounced next week? I really don't know?

I do know our season goes 17 weeks and I have these SEAHAWK players to consider starting: Lockett, DK Metcalf, Hollister, and now Beast Mode, whom I claimed off FA just to see how this week progresses. My opponent took Homer as the early favorite of the two RB's that Seattle will "lean on." Chances are it's just Lockett. Sitting at 12-4 with another team at 11-5.

Should have mentioned this is a question for postseason leagues.  Trying to decide if hes worth it vs Lynch, White, Shady or Coleman.  Havent seen any news on this so trying to bubble this up for pool to weigh in (On who the starter is).

White is your best bet out of the bunch. Brady has two trustworthy targets in this  team- Edelman and White. White will get fed as long as pats win games.

In dynasty I had this guy rostered going into week 1 for free, but once it was clear they were hanging onto Prosise for one last rodeo, I cut him and he sat in FA all season. Scooped him back up around week 14 to take into the off-season, so I'll be watching closely. Seems fairly talented.
