Spiller looks better today but doubtful he can return top 5 pick value.

Spiller looking like a buy low candidate.
Curious why you think Spiller might be a buy low but your worried about Morris

Similar starts, the biggest difference being Spiller is playing on a horrible team against middle of the road competition and Morris is playing on a good team against even better teams.

 
I'm not getting the game but WTF is Richardson doing? I was expecting big things this year, or at least, minimum of RB10 production. His stats so far are awful.

 
I'm worried about Spiller. I'd be worried about T-Rich if I was an owner - doesn't look good to me at all, but maybe Gordon coming back with open things up a bit for that offense.

Yeah, CLE doesn't have any weapons and the Ravens are all over Richardson (and Weeden)

 
RG3 - not looking good so far. His receivers are also having a SERIOUS problem catching footballs, ironically enough.

This is the one that was telegraphed... he didn't play at all in the preseason. How could anyone expect him to be a top 12 fantasy QB? Let alone someone to pay decently for, as in top 6. Shocked at how high he was being drafted this year. I have him in one out of 10 leagues, as a backup to Manning in a 6 TD league because he went really late in an auction draft.

Spiller is a massive red flag to me ... Fred Jackson just got the goal-line TD.

How can someone billed as a top 5 pick in all formats be worth that draft status without getting the goal-line touches?

There's no way he lives up to his value at this pace.

 
Richardson looks slow and he comes out on third downs. Not looking like the 1st round pick I (and countless others) spent on him.

It's not like he hasn't been startable...

24.85 week 1 in one of my leagues.

27.10 this week in that league.

Pretty standard scoring.

 
Would think Trent's numbers will get a little better in coming weeks. The return of Gordon will add a new dimension to Cleveland's offense.

Those are top 10 QB numbers, actually above what he averaged last year. The difference is that he isn't running and it's mostly junk time.

Doesn't matter as long as he's putting the numbers up. Either he'll have good numbers because he's back to his old self and the Skins are winning, or he'll put up numbers because he's not his old self and he has to pass the ball 40 times a game to make up for it. Either way he's putting up numbers. The offense runs through him unless the running game is REALLY clicking, which it won't until defenses fear RG3 again.

This Skins defense isn't stopping anyone.

Dropping Britt in leagues where I took a flyer on him. RG3 if he can't/won't run suddenly becomes a lot less appealing. Roddy White IMO is someone you have to trade if you're sitting at 0-2 in a redraft league(Bramel said that he may not be 100% until after the bye).

 
Everyone still worried about Spiller? He just had 100 yards rushing against a team that shut down the running game of Seattle last week.

 
Britt is an easy concern. Vincent Brown as well. Vick is a concern because he is going to be dead by week 8. Arian Foster scares me to.

Yeah, I'm happy with him so far. It hasn't been pretty, but he has gotten me exactly the point totals I had hoped for when I took him. 650 yards and 5 TDs through 2 games is plenty nice.

I almost have to keep Britt in dynasty since I'm weak at WR and we have deep rosters, but he's gonna be parked on my bench until further notice.

I know you can't just make these projections with the small sample size, but it seems odd to worry about or lose interest in a guy on pace for 5000 yards and 40 TDs.

 
Tom coughlin has pretty much ruined wilson's confidence. Hes running with every body part possible covering the ball.

 
Vincent Brown and Kenny Britt are wasting space on my dynasty team.

I was dumb enough to start Brown today.

For sure, I'm just saying that I see his upside being limited now(despite the good passing numbers, I see him more valuable when he's a dual threat). He's basically a pocket QB for the time being with potentially the same injury risk as a running QB would have.

I think there's reason for concern. The coaching staff said they were going to run Spiller until he pukes, yet he's splitting touches with Fred and seemingly not getting the touches inside the 5.

Wasn't that what happened last year and he still finished top 10?

He still finished with 100 yards and faced decent run defenses the first two weeks. Owners will have to wait for a monster game, it's coming.

David Wilson with Jacobs getting a lot of carries
I'd be worried about Wilson in general, but not because of Jacobs. Jacobs has 4 carries for 2 yards so far -- not exactly a threat to Wilson's job.
Yeah, the big concern with Wilson is the potential fact that he just isn't a very good NFL RB.
according to some people posting in the David Wilson thread, he has "elite" talent.

 
Richardson. Went high on him in multiple leagues...
I'm thinking this will get better. Had he gotten in the endzone today it would have been a solid day, and you have to think the TDs will come. Browns offense should get better with Norv system in place, just might take a few weeks.

Yes, after Fred went down for the season.

Choice was getting goal line carries when Fred went down last year and he is on pace for 250 carries this year. So again, why so worried?
