  1. Ravens have one of the best OC run game coordinators in Roman. He runs multiple blocking schemes and formations to confuse defenses. He does a lot of pulling guards/tackles to open big running lanes. Those lanes are well defined and don't require a lot of reading where the hole will be. I would expect Ingram to do very well in this system. Ingram has always been a good runner but for some reason Payton never really used him a lot. He's got his shot this year as the lead guy. I think he's wanted this for a while. RB2 floor with RB1 upside depending how much work he gets.
  2. Did say deep leagues so 14+ teams and not sure how you got league winners from my post. Stills finished WR51 in my 16 teamer. Wilson was on pace for WR22 until he got hurt. Just saying both good value as WR4-5 with potential for more.
  3. Offensive guru Gase tanked the Dolphins offense last year. Had least amount of plays/game at 55. No other team had been that low since 2005. That will improve and one would hope Fitzpatrick or Rosen can be better than Tannehill. They will likely be trailing in games. Stills, Wilson, and maybe even Parker can be good value in deep leagues. Don't sleep on them. I'd be more concerned about Jets under Gase.
  4. 100% agree. Rosen seems to be forcing it downfield even if it isn't there. Seasoned QBs take what the defense gives. Part of problem is he needs to be coached to use the RB as safety valve. Or OC needs to start making DJ the first read for Rosen. No idea why they can't utilize DJ same way teams use Barkley, Gurley, Kamara. Even Conner getting better work and DJ is much better talent than Conner.
  5. If this is true it seems there is hope DJ gets more looks in the passing game. Severe talent waste so far. Cardinals have not followed through on statement they were going to use DJ in passing game more. This game they did but then went back to old habits. Offense needs balance, run game feeds pass and vice versa. Rosen needs a good run game to relieve D pressure. Some other notes on Leftwich...he was backup QB with Steelers with Arians as OC for 3 years. Then Arians hired him in AZ 2 years ago. So he has 5 years experience with Arians' playbook. Let's hope he has similar philosophy on DJ. Can't get any worse, can it?
  6. Crabtree most reliable out of those options. As you know Cooper could go off or could tank so if opponent has stacked lineup and you need upside, go with Cooper. If you just need steady points then Crabtree for me. Help with mine...
  7. Hard to say without seeing roster. I think I'd stick with Tate and look for better deal. Help with mine...
  8. Get Golladay. You can stream at TE if Olsen isn't healthy. Drop another guy and go pick up Uzomah from Cincy. He's the guy now and Dalton likes his TEs. Help with mine?
  9. Consider me concerned about D.Freeman. A bone bruise in the foot could be a multi-week injury. Anything lower body for a RB takes away explosiveness. I'd hold for now. I think A.Jones value may go up after this weekend. If you can wait until next week might have more clarity on Freeman's injury. The deal would only bring on more risk for your team. Help with mine...
  10. Get Cook. Difference maker when he's right and that time is coming. Crowell sharing carries and frustrating to own since could have 200/2 and then 0 yards the next. That actually happened which I'm sure you know. Great time to sell high on those guys. Help with mine?
  11. Jordy and Jones for me being non-PPR. Feels like a week to play Jones. Feels like he'll be the runner when they want to run more. Last week vs DET down by 24 early so didn't see much work. It's SF so hope they can build good lead to let him have his day. Baldwin just can't be trusted right now. Help with mine?
  12. 16 team PPR. Start 1 QB/2 RB/2 WR + flex. Looking for QB and RB since I'm thin at both. It's a keeper league so wire is barren. If keeper confuses things just consider if trade were in redraft. Team competitive so looking to make run this year for title. Offer 1: give Lockett for Brees and Hyde Offer 2: give Keenan for Brees and Ingram Ingram can be kept in 11th and Hyde in 4th. Offer 2 feels like slight overpay but have concerns Hyde keeps job ROS and Ingram better keeper value. Ingram just better talent and offense working for him. QB: Eli, Jimmy G (IR) RB: Mixon, Montgomery, Ito Smith, Barber, K.Dixon WR: Hopkins, Keenan, Tyreek, John Brown, Lockett, Crowder Which offer? WHIR
  13. Not sure you're gaining much for this week with that deal. Yeldon and Morris may be better options than Coleman. Coleman has not been good as lead guy. Are you doing it for future keeper considerations because Coleman is FA and may go somewhere to be the guy? I'm not sold on Coleman being able to do that. He's more change of pace type and needs right system to succeed. Like Kittle more than Engram ROS. Once again, if doing it for keeper considerations I'm high on Engram. Help with mine...
  14. Goff probably more reliable but forecasting snow in Denver. I'd watch weather and if it's snowing or field conditions bad then go Winston. Gut says Winston going to have good week vs Falcons having to throw, bye week to prepare, and Falcons banged up D. Help with mine...
  15. Godwin at WR2 and Ekeler in flex. Bucs throw a lot and play Falcons so expect them to put up points. Ekeler has most opportunity among rest for flex. Help with mine...
