Can we finally put this to bed? Can we finally stop hearing about how productive he is in the 7 games he plays? Is there ANYBODY left who is still naive enough to waste a pick on this guy?

I'll take him at the right price. Wasn't too long ago I heard the same bs about Murray and Mathews.

Rice/Spiller/Richardson busting sure didnt help the "draft safe RBs" brigade either ... I'll take DMC if/when he falls to the right price.

I'd take him as a 4th or 5th RB, nothing more. Wouldn't want to be stuck relying on him.

This guy has ALWAYS been on my DND list and it's been one of my best and most consistent decisions. One of the most injury prone players in the league, and now he's letting journeymen RBs outperform him. Anyone plugging him in as a starter next year is at their own immense risk.

His injury history is legendary and his play, when healthy, the last 2 seasons has been pretty terrible.  Still, he's only going to be 27 in Aug and I think he's got more left in the tank than MJD (who I think will be out of the league after this season).  Maybe this is the year to take him as he's now in the ADP range of pick 100 overall.  I don't even think Latavius Murray is being drafted, so if you pair him (no cost) with DMC, you've got a good shot at picking up the OAK RB position for really cheap.  That's if you believe MJD is close to done, as I do.

I could be wrong, but his play dipped under the current HC and OC correct?

The price is right, at least, considering the work load the injury history and general risk. He CAN be had as a 4th RB and you may end up pleasantly surprised. Weirder things have happened.

Put is this way, if you have no faith in MJD, then you may as well take a flier on DMC and see what happens. There aren't many more people more valuable at the RB position where he is being drafted, cept maybe one of the rookies, or Khiry Robinson.

Wish he wasn't on the team so I could draft MJD.

All DMC does is make me less likely to invest anything in the raiders backfield.

People are overlooking Latavius Murray a bit.
Whether MJD or DMac have anything left is anyone's guess, but people forget that Murray has the juice if he's healthy.

He's the only guy I want in this backfield because I can get him for next to nothing.
Draft him as a cuttable flyer... the upside is that he may end up being Oakland's starting RB.

It's funny...the year he FINALLY goes late enough ti KIND of make it worth the risk... there's basically 0 talk about him.

I get it, they drafted MJD, he can never stay healthy etc..... BUT anybody who has done fantasy for a while knows how these things can turn out... still think in a PPR league if he's on the field he could help while he's standing

Probably one of the better handcuffs out there and someone you probably can play as Flex or RB2 if youre desperate.
