I almost commented with this, but unfortunately he isn't exactly a buy-low at this point; in fact, his value has never been higher, with Howard's injury. Whoever owns Sanders probably owns him exactly for this scenario, and while Sanders may win you some games, he probably won't be a trade target right now.Would Miles Sanders qualify for this thread? He's pretty widely owned (73.7% in ESPN), but as of yesterday's practice Jordan Howard was not cleared for contact with a stinger. If Sanders had the backfield to himself (or possibly split with Ajayi who might get signed now that Sproles is on IR) Sanders could be very valuable.

This is why Ive held him all year. And With Connor now dinged again id live him to get more work.I almost commented with this, but unfortunately he isn't exactly a buy-low at this point; in fact, his value has never been higher, with Howard's injury.

Eagles re-signed RB Jay Ajayi.
The Eagles needed another back after Darren Sproles was placed on injured reserve. Ajayi is also an insurance option for Jordan Howard who has been dealing with a "stinger" this week. It's unclear if Ajayi will be active this Sunday but being with the organization in 2017 and 2018 helps his chances. Ajayi is merely a handcuff and depth back for Philly.

Depends if you own Dalvin Cook or Jordan Howard IMO.Well...I didn't want to get into a Assistant Coach thing. But since you ask. Ridley is the WR. Mattison the RB (yes, I can't believe someone has left him sit there given some of the bench options in my league...Im already sitting with Miles Sanders as a sort of lotto pick that I can still flex if needed...this would be adding another...but the home run if an injury happened). Ridley is sort of his own lotto at WR. Flexable at times, but if Julio went down, and he was the #1...that could be very nice.
IMO any KC back just isnt worth it from a reliability standpoint
Nobody can really say with any definitiveness. I've followed it all year. Best I can suss out, Shady isn't that great in pass pro and turned the ball over twice in crucial situations. Other than that, he's running and catching the ball well.
I don't think anyone outside of Andy Reid/ his coaching staff really knows what's going on.
As you saw, answer is really no. Shady keeps burying himself, Damien can't stay healthy. I really want to make a play for Darrell Williams as I think he's looked super solid when he's given the ball (just as, if not more so at times, than the two starters ahead of him) but as soon as I do, I know Darwin Thompson will suddenly come out of nowhere.daylight said:
I still think that Mattison is the highest lotto ticket value. Everyone needs an injury to have confidentRB1 reality, but Mattison has the clearest path if the starter has an injury.Trying to decide between Darrel Williams, Alexander Mattison and Gus Edwards in case Kittle is inactive and I can put him in my IR spot again. First two on Bye this week.and Edwards is Monday night. Unless one of them gets lead back work, I won't be starting any of them, so only interested in the lotto ticket value. Would only be able to look at guys on the Bye Week teams or Sunday/Monday night lineups.
Dalvin Cook is the healthy and presumably nothing happened to him this week, so Mattison would be least likely to be valuable in week 13. Closing schedule is at Seahawks, home vs. Lions, at Chargers, home vs Packers
Darrel Williams has more of a chance to be valuable in week 13, since Damien Williams has a rib injury and McCoy a concussion (but both got a week of rest). Closing schedule is Raiders at home, at Patriots, home vs Broncos, at Bears.
Gus Edwards looks very good when playing, Ingram seems to be slowing some so might get more timeshare value even if no big injury to Ingram, or possibility of blow outs mean Ingram sits and Edwards does mop up duty. Home vs 49ers, at Bills, home vs. Jets, at Browns
Chase Edmunds would probably be in a time share with Drake (assuming Edmunds is healthy), so considering the other 3 guys more than Edmunds. Close out with Rams at home, Steelers at home, Browns at home, then At Seattle.
Yeah, that lines up with my thinking. I think you just stated it better. ThanksI still think that Mattison is the highest lotto ticket value. Everyone needs an injury to have confidentRB1 reality, but Mattison has the clearest path if the starter has an injury.
In terms of median outcome, though, Edwards seems fairly clearly at the top. Justice Hill has been an afterthought and you are right about the timeshare. I don't know for sure what would happen if ingram had a season-ending injury, but seems like Edwards would get the majority of the work.
So I would say it's pretty close between Mattison and Edwards, with the other 2 fairly far behind due to a lot more variables.
How may RBs can you start? I assume a total of 3 (2RB + 1 FLex).Curious on opinions on my RB lotto ticket stash situation.
How may RBs can you start? I assume a total of 3 (2RB + 1 FLex).
RB1: S. Barkley or handcuff W. Gallman (good matchups week 15/16)
K. Drake - proven performer in his offense when he's the only guy. What happens after the bye?
A. Ekeler - proven flex performer at least, plus some great weeks even after Godon's return
T. Coleman - great offense but he involvement is questionable even with Breida out. Probably a hold due to the offense.
A. Mattison - definite keeper, would take over most of the carries if something happened to Cook
L. McCoy - good offense, but too many mouths to feed plus Reid is flaky. Worth keeping in case everyone else gets hurt (I have Darrell Williams for the same reason on my squad).
D. Guice - not sure of WAS playoff schedule or current playing time between him and AP, but I think he is the most cutable based on your situation.
I think I would drop Guice for Chase Edmonds so you can lockup* the ARI and NYG backfields as your RB1 and RB2 spots. *I realize D. Johnson is still there but I see Edmonds helping you more in the AIR offense that Guice in the WAS offense.
Breida is practicing. As an owner of T. Coleman who has had Mostert on and off the roster all year, I'd dump him.R. Mostert - excellent offense. Could carry the load if every else gets hurt. Breida currently dinged. However, would be next to go if necessary.
J. Samuels - seems to have fallen out of favor in PIT. Snell fits what the Steelers need this year more than Samuels. Steelers need a good "runner" to protect their suspect QB play and dovetails with their excellent defense. Will be the first to go if I need to make a move.

what a difference a week makes...Targeting Darwin Thompson (and I'm a McCoy owner) and Mostert (and I'm a frustrated Coleman owner).
Right now I have a claim for both and would drop Gus Edwards.Don't need an RB, but, Darwin Thompson and Patrick Laird are on waivers right now. Not sure if I should be playing keep-away for this week or next. The only guy I could drop for one of them is Tony Pollard.
