What did we learn after week 3? (1 Viewer)

Dwayne Bowe is a WR4 at best

Chiefs D is a weekly must start

K. Thompkins back on the fantasy radar

David Wilson might not be startable all season

 
Jordan Cameron is an every week TE1 no matter who the Browns have at QB and not matter who the opponent is.

 
Anyone who drafts RBs in the 1st and/or 2nd rounds are taking HUGE risks and it further proves that reliable QBs, WRs, and TEs are a safer play in the early rounds. You can't go wrong with players like Calvin Johnson, Aaron Rodgers (although today is the worst you will see from him), Jimmy Graham, etc.

I hate when people say this, and act like everyone using this strategy will have the stars align and get quality rbs later. Even with first round rbs being unreliable, 3rd/4th round rbs are just as unreliable as 3rd/4th round wrs. a team of calvin/rodgers/wilson/miller is just as bad as spiller/cj2k/cobb/cruz

 
I've learned that after 3 weeks, between D. Wilson, Ridley, Lamar Miller and Ryan Mathews I don't have 2 rb's to start each week....

But 1st and 2nd round QBs and receivers are more reliable than 1st and 2nd round RBs. Besides, QBs and receivers are scoring significantly higher now than in years past so RBs are less valuable then ever. Plus, I am riding quality RBs drafted even later than Rounds 3 and 4 like Joique Bell and Bernard Pierce. I also have bad RBs like Lamar Miller and David Wilson but I definitely stock up on RBs later in the draft and a few always seem to hit.

 
Off of the top of my head....

That the T-Rich trade to Indy might not be as good as originally thought by many. Bradshaw will steal a larger portion of touches than the other Browns backs did during his time in Cleveland. Hopefully he continues to find the endzone.

That I severely underestimated Josh Gordon and Jordan Cameron, both of these guys are legit NFL weapons and have been producing with bad/mediocre QB's.

That maybe other teams have figured out Colin Kaepernick?

That the Giants offensive line is atrocious.

That quality fantasy RB's seem to be more scarce than ever.

That outside of a few monster games it generally seemed/felt like a low scoring fantasy week overall?

What is this based on? I can list several guys at QB, WR, and TE drafted later that have hit as well. Besides, "value" isn't based on the overall scoring for a position.

You have been riding Bernard Pierce? He is averaging under 10 ppg in PPR scoring, his weekly totals are 2, 12, 15 those are barely flex numbers

Than we do I keep listening to these "experts"???

 
Spiller may have been an unwise 1st round pick
Because of an injury?
I'm pretty sure he had 9 yards rushing on 10 carries before the injury.
I'm pretty sure Barry Sanders had a negative rushing game in the playoffs once too. What is your point?
I'm not sure how that even remotely pertains to my response to your post. That was one hell of a non-sequitur. :thumbup:

I have a 3-0 team that debunks this theory completely.
 
Never trust Eli no matter how many of the opponents secondary is hurt?
That is hilarious how poorly he did against a team who is weak against the pass. :o
Guys it's not all Eli--the O-line is a joke. The playcalling is too pass happy and now Big Blue is even more predictable than in years past. Killdrive has to go.

The GM did nothing to improve the O-line and LB's, and no insurance at RB for Wilson (Andre Brown was an injury-prone journeyman coming into last season). Too many re-treads on the D-line too.

 
That I'm not taking the chiefs defense out of my lineup until they prove to me that they are not match up proof?

 
I feel like I probably should sell Joique Bell at an all time high...but I can't bring myself to click "accept". Anyone else feel torn on Joique?

He's a lottery ticket and the problem is you likely won't get in a trade what he's worth. What I'm looking to do is package up a "better back" like Chris Johnson or someone like that and keep flexing bell. This is the week to make your moves.

Don't sell him, Bush will be lucky to survive the season and even when Bush is in there he is a high end flex play. Actually I shouldn't say don't sell him, if someone is going to give you something crazy then sell him.

 
My "stud" rbs .. foster , alf , spiller and trich... maybe lacy arent gonna win games for me week in an week out. Smh dissapointing
