You earned a lot of cred here today. Wish I would have listened to you and not the guys with the DJ bias. 

Appreciate that - feel like I caught an inordinate amount of grief in here & the Chase topic for suggesting DJ was risky & Chase might be a good play.

Ah well...I just wish I’d started Chase over singletary.

You’ve been pretty much spot-on with this and the Mahomes topics this week.

You’ve stated you own Edmonds in many posts. Don’t think you deny that so I won’t source it. 

You said: 

I have no idea why Arizona wouldn’t pick up another running back considering the third stringer is injured. Maybe that’s a good sign and maybe it’s not. Maybe it’s just a sign of a team that’s not prepared well. maybe they believe against the lowly Giants they don’t need more than one running back.” Comically unrealistic.
 

I’m not going to dig into the Mahomes thread to quote but there you said something akin to football players being different from message board posters in terms of their willingness to play through injuries yet in here you say DJ owners should be concerned about him having to fly across country:

Thought I’d read he missed practice Friday & that’s when coach said “if the game were today he’d be out”. 

they're playing the Giants so I’m not sure how much gamesmanship is needed there. 

to add concern for DJ owners, flying cross-country with a bad back isn’t always the most beneficial thing for a player either. ”

You double down on gamesmanship not being needed against a team favored to beat them. You mention the concern about football player DJ not being able to handle a cross country flight. And you incorrectly state that he missed practice Friday and in another post based on that assumption you say he was a late week downgrade. You want him to be out so you can roll Edmonds in a sweet matchup. I own DJ in one and Edmonds in another. I get it. But you’re clearly letting your bias shine through. 

Drop it

David Johnson started, ran the ball once, and then was sidelined for the rest of Week 7.

Beyond brutal. Johnson was able to practice this week. We had the Adam Schefter "expected to play" news. And the Cardinals only had two healthy running backs today. All signs that Arizona had confidence in Johnson, but they ultimately opted to play it safe with their star running back when he likely could've played through his injury. At one point Chase Edmonds was throwing up in a trash can -- you may be doing that as well if you started DJ -- so Johnson re-entered momentarily but immediately went back to the sideline when Edmonds was feeling better. It was an all-time tilting week, especially with Edmonds posting three touchdowns on over 20 touches. Johnson will be hard to fully trust until he practices in full. Hopefully we get more clarity on the situation after the game.

I don't really say this much when it happens in other sports... but #### the Arizona Cardinals organization for what they did today. I hope they get fined for fudging his health status after he was limited throughout the week. I'm not talking about Fantasy here, it's beyond irresponsible how they handled DJ and even Edmonds, activate a backup there. I posted on how DHJ has a soft tissue back injury that could flare up, but this is ridiculous. Kingsbury and the staff just entered the Sean McVay/Todd Gurley Circle of Distrust for me.

I mean, he got the start. Maybe he immediately didn't feel right and there was no need to risk it. They got up 14-0 early, and Edmonds took off. I doubt it was on purpose. I'm sure they came into the game intending on using him.

He left after the first carry of the game. He was limited all week but they made the decision he was "ok", warmed up in practice, and still started w/o the activation of a RB. They hung two players out the dry there, Edmonds had to shoulder a massive workload he wasn't prepared for.
