    I'm much more excited about Moncrief after watching the game. The final stats don't tell the whole story as he made some good plays and was close to having a much bigger day. Here are a few plays, starting with the TD: Alternate angle, easier to see the catch without the camera whipping to him: Finally, a deep shot that had potential that Luck overthrew him on: Several obvious factors portend Moncrief having huge potential going forward: a poor defense that forces the offense to keep throwing, a good QB in Andrew Luck throwing to him, and a suspect receiving corps that was in desperate need of him coming back to be a primary option [alongside Hilton]. I hate to get too far ahead here but could this be another Cooper and Crabtree situation? Just imagine what Rodgers is going to do to the Colts defense in Lambeau and how much Luck will have to sling the ball this week. Moncrief has a chance to feast and hopefully gets his fill going into the bye.

    FG% is not enough. You have to be punting all 9 categories for him to be a hold.

    Look, you don't get what's going on, and that's fine. Just stop spouting off like you're some basketball authority. Russell got in foul trouble early, went 3-10 from the field and with Walton running his bench unit heavily all season long and staying within 3 of the Pacers on the road with 30 seconds left, the rest is history. I'm a Laker fan, I couldn't be happier than if we keep taking every game down to the wire and losing. That's obviously not Walton's intent, but if he doesn't want to play his starters 35-38 minutes every night and is willing to lose a few more games as a result, I'm not going to lose any sleep over it. Crying about how terrible Walton's rotations are and throwing an "I told you so" attitude at everyone when, bluntly, you didn't, is just a waste of everyone's time, so stop.

    I just wanted to post my strong disagreement with the Roto analysis on Noah. Here's their take after tonight: Here's my version. Noah played 30 minutes tonight (more than Prozingis). He led the team in boards and assists and got 2 blks. The points will come, as he gets his timing back and manages to get a few putbacks to fall. The most important thing is minutes. If he can maintain getting 30 minutes, he should get to 9-10, with a blk, and very high assists for a C. At the price you paid for him, that line is gold.

    So Week 1 you have Tamme for 6/51 and Hooper had a catch in that game too. In Week 2 you have the Cardinals, a misnomer for defenses. Who's even their TE? Niklas? They don't throw the position. In Week 3 you have Lance Kendricks. In Week 4 you have a Paxton Lynch lead broncos attack that hasn't featured the TE at all. Virgil Green was probably out. In Week 6 you get destroyed by Greg Olsen In Week 7 you have San Francisco under Kaepernick. In Week 8 you have two Oakland TEs going for 6/67/1. Do you know what Arizona TEs, Lance Kendricks, Virgil Green/other healthy TEs, and Vance McDonald all have in common? They're all universally unowned because they don't ever produce. You said looking deeper but it really isn't that deep of a look. It's fairly shallow to talk of TE rankings without seeing who those TEs are. The HIGHEST ownership percentage of TEs to face Tampa this season outside of Tamme and Olsen is Kendrick at 3.6%. per ESPN.

    This guy is criminally under owned. If you are weak in assists and need a big man, he should be on your team. I think his averages will be something like: 7PTS, 10REB, 4.5AST, 0.7STL, 1.2BLK, 45%FG. About to drop Z Bo for him. Could use the extra REB/BLK and it will prevent other teams from gaining assists on me.

    You didn't hear? McFadden isn't just injured. He's been busy cloning himself. One of him is going to Denver. One to KC. One obviously to Green Bay and Dallas will keep the prototype. Bad move imo they'd be better off keeping one of the clones.

    He had a couple of good games last year but now he is taking Ware's job ROS because ware has the worst concussion in NFL history.

    Truer words never spoken. Btw this happened last year with Byron Scott. At times Russell's defense is really that terrible and he needed to be taught a lesson by being benched. Only difference is Scott was a no nonsense guy and never cut him slack, even as a rookie. He has a MUCH longer leash this year and good rapport with Walton. This was a teaching moment for him (don't pick up 2 fouls in two minutes as the starting point guard). Outlook in fantasy is determined by reality but the reality of this situation is that he is the future of the team and he will produce.

    Guys, Seriously, from a previous TJones owner. Accept the fact that he's not a good basketball player. His ability to fill a stat sheet is not tied to how good of a player he is.

    Really can't see that happening. Rookies, even ones with 3-4 years of college experience, are almost never good real life NBA players right off the bat (very few exceptions in the last decade). Rubio's a good NBA PG. Good in basically every aspect of the game besides shooting (which Dunn can't do either). I honestly can't see Dunn supplanting him at any point this year.

    Hold the phone-- aren't you the guy who JUST criticized me for "spinning things"? WOW. Just wow dude. The quote isn't "Strong." You took literally all the context... the ENTIRE reply out and just went to the next question. DK: Strong, he's on our team. Everyone's that's on our team I have full confidence in. Last I checked, Antone Smith was on the roster. Could be wrong tho. And you left it off right before he shot down the idea that Barber was the starter: DK: Not sure about that yet. Don't ever critique me for spinning something again. Ever. You literally just changed a quotation/deleted context to benefit your side of an argument.

    How/why are people still holding on to this guy? 1. He hasn't produced much of anything all year (Currently sitting at WR#74 in my league). 2. He's the #3 WR on his team (Stills and Landry have priority, as well as Ajayi) 3. He's reliant upon Tannehill supporting him (7 TDs to 7 INTs and Tannehill cannot support 3 relevant WRs) Dude's a bust this year. I have to think there's better options on your wires than this guy.

    He is being severely underrated this week by the "experts." Starting with confidence. Cowboys are banged up in the secondary and figure to be ahead the entire game. Game script screams pass heavy with a garbage time cherry on top for the browns.

    The more I think about this situation the more I think Smith is a top 25 back in PPR this week. Even if this is a 50/50 timeshare, Tampa hasn't run the ball fewer than 18 times in a game yet. They ran it 22 times against Atlanta in Week 1. So let's say 10 carries is a safe floor. Plus Smith's pass catching skills and the possible shootout situation here should give at least 3 catches to Smith. If he JAGs his way to 3.5 yards per carry and 8 yards per catch that's a floor of 59 total yards and 3 catches = 8.9 PPR. That's a pretty good floor. So what's the upside? Well, let's look at Week 1 when Atlanta hosted Tampa. Martin went 18/62 and Sims 4/9, but in the passing game the two combined for 8 catches for 86 yards and a TD. Atlanta has been dreadful against RBs, particularly in the passing game: Week 2: Oakland four-pack combine for 22/131 and 10 catches (!!) for 88 yards, one total TD. Week 3: Ingram 15/77, JAGtower 3/19, Kuhn vultures a TD. Passing game adds another 10 catches (!!) for 62 yards and a TD. Week 4: Carolina three-pack with Stewart injured gets stuffed running but has 10 catches (!!) for 84 yards. Week 5: Anderson 11/41, Booker 6/23, but the two combine for another 7 catches for 57 yards. Week 6: C-Mike 18/64/2 TD, Alex Collins adds a TD run; three RBs combine for 7 catches for 66 yards. Week 7: Gordon puts up 22/68 and 6/53 and scores 3 total TD. Week 8: Green Bay's "running backs" all do nothing. If we put aside the Green Bay game, which really doesn't count because of their bizarre-to-non-existent RB situation, in the passing game along RBs are averaging 8.3 catches for 68 yards! With a likely passing game flow, would it surprise you to see Smith catch 8 balls for 68 yards? If he does that, anything else (a TD, some rushing yards, etc.) is just pure gravy. I'm not quite ready to say "starting with confidence," but I'm thinking about it...

    Interesting to come in and find this post given what I have to offer ^.^. I don't own Emmanuel anywhere but stumbled across this and just thought it had some merit considering that Emmanuel has been a bit down the last few games: Sanders currently leads the league in RZ Targets and, more prominently, Targets from Inside the 10. His RZ Targets (14) is also a league leading pace (using 2015 data), as Eric Decker led the league with 28 last year and Sanders is through 8 games. Even without playing another game, Sanders RZ targets would finish 32nd Among WRs in 2015. Sanders' RZ Targets (14) are already close to doubling his total from 2015 (8). His Targets from Inside the 10 (10) is far above a league leading pace (using 2015 data), as Decker led that stat as well, but with only 16. He has more Targets Inside the 10 this year than he did from Inside the 20 last year (10 versus 8). Even without playing another game, Sanders' targets inside the 10 would finish 12th Among WRs in 2015. If you remove Paxton Lynch's numbers entirely, eliminating almost two games of data for Sanders, Sanders still has 10 RZ Targets (Tied for 8th) and 9 (!) Targets Inside the 10, which would move him from sole possession of first into a tie for first in the league. And. Sanders' Targets from Inside the 10 in 2016 have not only surpassed his similar target count from 2015, but have blown away that number, and increased five fold, as he only had 2 Targets inside the 10 in all of 2015, and now has 10 Targets through 8 games of 2016. Good hold candidate. Honestly pretty good buy low candidate. Early indicators are that Siemian loves this guy in the money areas, and he could easily be in for a TD binge after these four unfortunate weeks of failing to find paydirt.

    I'm actually really on board with this one. Rookie TEs are highly variable and I could easily see him falling flat on his face. However, he's inheriting a valuable role in a valuable offense. Here's a Tamme stat I stumbled upon the other day when doing other research: Jacob Tamme is FIRST among TEs in Red Zone Targets (11). He is also tied for FIFTH among all pass catchers, behind Jordy (14) Sanders (14) Marshall (13) and AR15 (12) in Red Zone Targets. Of those 11 Red Zone Targets, 6 have come inside the 10. So... Jacob Tamme is tied for FIRST among TEs in Targets Inside the 10 (6). He is also tied for FOURTH among all pass catchers, behind Sanders (10), Jordy (9) and Fitzgerald (8) in Targets Inside the 10. Tamme has only actually reached pay dirt three times, but a quick glance at his play-by-play on Red Zone plays shows that he's been downed on the 1 yard line on 2 of his 6 targets Inside the 10. A slight bit of misfortune I don't really believe that's as much a factor of Tamme as it is Matt Ryan. I think Ryan likes the TE in the red zone. (Bitter Julio owners may say he likes them too much). Then you look at Hooper, who, as previously stated, has never been targeted and failed to secure a catch. I wanna break that down a bit in a way that'll be obvious to 90% of users but I think it's worth stating: That does not mean that he has never failed to catch a ball that hit him in the hands or square in the numbers, that means every time Matt Ryan has thrown the ball towards Hooper, he has caught it. Every LOOK has equated a CATCH. And while the volume is low over the course of the season, his 5/5 last week in an incredibly close game has to do wonders for his reputation in Ryan's eyes, and having a game with 5 targets and no missed connection is pretty substantial. I'm probably not as optimistic as @pastorofmuppets2 when it comes to the long term value of Hooper-- something about my bones just makes me refuse to be so high on an unknown Rookie TE, but for THIS match-up, with Tamme out, and considering that Ryan targeted Tamme a season high 8 times in the first meeting with the Bucs, I think there are far worse chances out there. I'm already going to have to watch my top two players (Evans and Julio) pretty much tell me my weekly outlook on Thursday. Might as well sling this dude in my TE spot and put it all on the Thursday line.
