  1. The bolded could be said for most teams in a RBBC. Bottom line how does it shake out? If you think one of the RBs has more talent or will be in higher leverage situations then you can bet that a 50/50 split is improbable no matter what the HC says politically before the first game of the season. It might even start out that way, but injury/performance/luck/coaching will have one of these guys take over 2/3 of the share most likely. 230ish touches is more than flex worthy and that is using the lowest data point you threw out there and 260+ touches is a real possibility.
  2. Reunited, and it feels sooooo good, Reunited 'cause we understood, There's one perfect fit And, sugar, this one is it We both are so excited 'cause we're reunited, hey, hey Some things just fit well together, like peanut butter and jelly, like Andy and Westbrook or like Andy and $hady. It's going to be a beautiful thing.
  3. This kid can run. Film don't lie. Rosters need him for Ingram's sake, even without.
  4. He had 2 touches in the 1st half with #7 throwing 50 yard picks in this last game. He wasn't gassed last week and could easily have carried more that 7 times. He may not get quite that much as he did in the first month, but he could handle a McCaffrey type load and score 400+ easily.
  5. Kamara #1 in PPR if no Ingram. He's the best RB per touch. How quickly we forget how the first month of the season went with no Ingram on the team. Barkley/Elliot/Gurley/McCaffrey are all on the same tier after that. You could make a case all 5 of them are in the same tier, but they all scored about the same this season, Kamara having a significantly smaller amount of touches. THis last game a is a perfect example. Kamara scored 26 in ppr this week with 11 touches. Without Ingram on the team Kamara was on pace for 500+ points. None of the other guys could score like this with so few touches and he's bigger than McCaffrey. ETA you could throw Chubb in there too.
  6. Because its the NFL and this is a RB. THis is why they dont pay guys like Bell the big bux. A guy can come in off the street at RB and kill it.
  7. Wow this was almost a disaster. Thank God for last minute heroics.
  8. Welp he hit his floor again at 15 points. Better than my alternative of Gronk who got the fat zero this week. Thanks Yahoo! (and Samuels)
  9. Seems like C.J. Anderson, a guy off the street kinda proved my point for me. Throw anyone in there. However, Ingram is no Kamara. Kamara had so few touches this last game and still somehow produced. Hes back to scoring 40ppg if Ingram isn't on this team next year.
  10. He had 2 touches in the first half. Amazing he had as many points as he did. Peyton set him up to fail this game. Gonna be glad when Ingram is gone and its just Kamara as the main guy next season (hope). ETA Peyton will probably find a way to get number 7 all the carries. He's too smart for his own good.
  11. The title of this thread ... Takes up half the phone screen.
  12. Josh Allen is my only other QB which i picked up in case of emergency. I'd be hard pressed to start him over Luck any week, certainly this one. Last week was brutal though. Still 99% sure I start luck unless someone can talk me out of it.
  13. There's really only one thing left to say on this situation ...
  14. Risky if Conner starts. Now Conner could start, but then re-aggrivate the injury in which case Samuels will do fine most likely, plus even if Conner plays he will not be in football shape and most likely need help this week. It would then be TD dependent so just like almost all the other TEs. I would place him behind the big 5 TEs. IF he starts he is TE1 based on his floor more than his ceiling. Ugh the TE floor is brutal this year.
  15. All this logical "evidence" of so and so won me my game this week and he beat the team with so and so is rather meaningless. My only knock is Kamara dissapointed on that 1 on 1 with the corner in the open field early in the game. He needs to work that out on grass and improve his grass game. I feel like at home on the fast track he jukes that guy out of his shoes and scores a 2nd TD. In my mind I would rather have Kamara. Gurley has more miles and the mileage is much more punishing per touch than Kamara's, and is showing wear. When Kamara was used like a bellcow for the 1st 4 games of the season he handily outscored Gurley with less touches (PPR). Ingram will be gone next season (I think) and we could be returning to the Kamara we all knew and loved in the first month of the season with Ingram on suspension. If Kamara carries the load like that Gurley will not keep pace. Bottom line on a per touch basis Kamara has shown more and has not had a slump type season (like Gurley who needs system support for his style of rushing more than Kamara does) and next year should have more opps similar to the 1st month of the season this year. If Kamara who has a similar build to McCaffrey can get McCaffrey type touch volume I have no doubt he will outscore Gurley.
  16. He handily outscored Luck this week (who would have cost me the game had I not also played vs Brees) and has a nice floor it seems. What are the chances Brees/Luck both give single digit performances in the same week while this guy outscores both? 1 in a zillion I suspect.
  17. Welp, had Gronk and Cook on my bench getting 3 points this week. They both outscored Samuels last week but its all about the floor baby. I must also mention that he outscored Kittle, Kelce and Ertz and every other TE for that matter. I'm sure I am not the only one that enjoyed this week for a variety of reasons. Cheat code delivered. ETA: Honestly I consider this another floor type game from him. Imagine when the mutli TD games come. Conner should take another week off.
  18. He hit his floor last week. starting him again if Conner sits. Last week if he gets a TD hes hitting 20 points. I am favored so value a higher floor at TE than ceiling.
  19. Well I trust your judgement since you know the Colts better than I do but I really need luck to perform well today in a must-win. So I'm right there with you
  20. Didn't he score 40 points against Houston earlier this year?
  21. I have Jared Cook and Gronk, playing over both ... higher upside, higher floor. Gronk has been a disappointment and doesn't look right. The targets he does get he is covered and its a 50/50 ball. Of course i can tell a story where Gronk scores more than Samuels, same with Cook, but the probabilities lie with Samuels vs Oak. It could be a monster game, and the floor is much better than Grok or Cook this season.
  22. His college tape reveals that receiving is his best quality. He can run routes, not just out of the backfield and has good hands. His more likely to get 3-5 recs with 8-10 carries. If he gets 15 carries I would suspect he gets 5+ recs as that would mean full time usage.
  23. http://www.rotoworld.com/headlines/nfl/387111/james-conner-(ankle)-ruled-out-for-week-14 Its official. Conner is out. Look at Samuels' tape in college and tell me he's not gonna outproduce most TE1s next week. No brainer to start him at TE if you ask me. Even a 50/50 share vs Oakland will get twice the touches than any TE1 around the league. If he gets 20 touches it would be like starting 3 or 4 TE1s LOL. We are talking about unfair advantage to the tune that other league mates will cry foul. Let them cry.
  24. Connor out. Programming Cheat code for playoffs ... 0011110101010001 J a y l e n s a m u e l s 001011100010101001 Done.
