  1. This may be exactly what he needed. A prolonged break where he wasn't pushing himself to get back at the soonest possible instance. Let him get 100% healthy and then go out and ball and prove his worth. He has shown he can put up WR1 numbers with Dalton as the QB, so no reason to think he can't again when he gets back.
  2. I think the key word is typical. A 2 hour workout would probably suffice and I'm sure there is a lot to be left up to interpretation.
  3. It's not that he misses the hole, which to me would mean he isn't running in the right hole, but instead the hole is there for a split second, but closes before he can get there. It's entirely possible I'm misreading it, but I feel like there is yardage being left out there.
  4. As a Bears fan and someone who was really excited about this guy going into the year, I have to admit, I am just not seeing greatness out of this guy. While the line hasn't done a stellar job of blocking for him, there are usually 3 or 4 times a game where there looks to be a hole for him and he just doesn't have the speed to get to it. Those 3 or 4 runs could be the difference between a 40 yard rushing game and a 80+ rushing yard game. On the plus side, he is a patient runner (sometimes looks like L. Bell), he is hard to bring down, and he catches the ball well. While I'm rooting for him, so far I haven't seen anything that is giving me hope for a lot of upside.
  5. I think it's an incorrect statement to say that people think Kickers aren't important. The problem is, there is no real way to know what kicker is going to have a good year when you're in the draft. Generally, you want one on a good offense, but not too good or they'll only get extra points, but not too bad because they need to get into field goal range. Are they important to your team? Absolutely. Is the top scoring kicker for next week sitting on the waiver wire in your league? Possibly...but you have no real way of guessing.
  6. If you can do it, I'd say go for it. That offense is going to come to life at some point, and while I think Ingram will put up solid numbers all year, I think having a running QB is going to limit his upside.
  7. You're right. I don't really pay attention to top QBs ADP because I'm always the last person to take one. I just know I was in a few drafts where he was taken in the first round and I assumed with 6Pts per TD, that would escalate his value to top 5ish...looking now, I was wrong. So Zeke is more valuable than Mahomes, but not 2 starting RBs more valuable.
  8. In a redraft right now, Mahomes and Zeke would pretty much cancel each other out based on your drafting strategy (both potential top 5 picks). So it really becomes Wilson for Brieda and Ekelor. I'd pass. Maybe counter with Mahomes and Brieda.
  9. I wouldn't accept that trade as it's presented as it would almost certainly be vetoed. Counter with the guys you want and the guys you would wind up dropping and go from there. I probably wouldn't do that trade though...the best player is leaving your team.
  10. Yeah, unfortunately two halves don't make a whole here. You could give it a shot, but your best might be to wait until one of them gets injured and then either move them or start them.
  11. I would temper expectations. Check out Williams stats from the first 4 games of the year to get an indication of what you can expect.
  12. I like Brieda. All signs point to him playing. http://forums.rotoworld.com/topic/738242-raves-or-rams-defst/
  13. Ravens Vs. Tampa Bay Rams Vs Eagles (Nick Foles)
  14. I have this same exact decision. Every ranking I've come across has said Ravens, but my gut is really telling me to go Rams. I think they both have a safe floor, so it really comes down to who has the more explosive upside. Sorry. I'm no help.
  15. That's fine to be annoyed, but don't blame it on a poor performance. He legit got hurt. Hard to blame a guy for getting his ankle rolled up on.
