  1. Corey Davis 2018 Outlook

    Sorry guys. Due to bye week, I am starting Corey. Prediction - 2 catches for 12 yards. If you have other options, you may want to consider them.
  2. Corey Davis 2018 Outlook

    I started Corey every week except for week 4 and yesterday. I will let all of you know when I decide to bench him again. I hate fantasy football.
  3. Aaron Jones 2018 Outlook

    Look at the snap counts from the last game. I think it's time we can start counting on Jones for rb2 production. Looks like he is on the field 60% of the time now and Ty might be benched after that last game.
  4. Aaron Jones 2018 Outlook

    Agree. Until an injury hits, Jones is at best a flex, and you probably have someone better on your bench. He's not a weekly starter.

    McCarthy and Philbin have been talking about committee since OTAs and it sure looks like Philbin is getting his way. Last year, before Philbin joined, McCarthy used to just play his best guy. Looks like those days are over. Sorry guys. I have Jones too and I was hoping I would be wrong here.

    I started corey davis weeks 1 to 3, then sat him week 4, and then started him this week. Fml.

    Whether or not plays, I think more importantly he is not startable. Do we really think he's gonna have a good game without even practicing due to a concussion and hamstring issue? Hope everyone has a good alternative.
  8. Chris Carson 2018 Outlook

    Carson was head and shoulders above Penny so all that arguing about Carson vs. Penny was just ridiculous. However, Carson doesn't appear to be head and shoulders above Davis. Also consider that after a 34 touch effort, Carson got hurt. Would be reasonable for them to move towards something of a timeshare. Maybe not 50-50 but Davis may get enough work to really eat into Carson's value.
  9. Rob Gronkowski 2018 Outlook

    For me, starting Gronk depends on a few factors - 1. Who is my other option? - If it is a waiver wire guy, then I start Gronk. If I drafted a low end TE1 or high end TE2 as Gronk's backup, maybe now is the time to use him, especially if my backup TE has a good matchup. 2. Am I favored in my game or not? If you are favored by a lot you may want to get a decent floor and hope the rest of your lineup performs. 3. What's my record? If i'm desperate for a win, it's time to roll the dice.

    Sometimes I feel like the Rotoworld blurb writers read these forums. Honestly. Not that there is anything wrong with that.
  11. Aaron Jones 2018 Outlook

    Ok maybe I exaggerated. You got me. I will say this though...while it may not be a 50/50 timeshare, the above is proof that his running backs share the load. Look at the usage of the "lead" back. - Pre-2010 - yes no committee but committees were not really in vogue then either. - 2011 - Full blown committee - in 2012, Bush had 227 carries in 16 games = 14 carries per game - 2013 - Committee - in 2014, Miller had 216 carries in 16 games = 13.5 carries a game 14 and 13.5 carries is not a full workload for a game. Other RBs were taking work. For example, in 2012, Thomas had 91 carries yes, but Miller took 51 as well for a total of 141 carries vs. Bush's 227. Roughly 60/40 split. In 2017, players who were in the 200 to 230 carry range - Mark Ingram, Latavius Murray, Alex Collins, Marshawn Lynch, and Isaiah Crowell. None of these guys screams workhorse to me. Most had at least one other RB taking significant work from him (Kamara, Buck Allen, Duke Johnson, etc.). However, these guys were generally pretty good so there is hope for Jones. I would be pretty happy if Jones gets 14 carries a game. He will produce solid RB2 numbers with that. Here's hoping you guys are all right and I'm wrong about Philbin's influence.
  12. Aaron Jones 2018 Outlook

    He did. He may have been an RB1 if he got a full workload. Although I will say this...Philbin may have been right about Miller. Miller hasn't done much with the Texans.
  13. Aaron Jones 2018 Outlook

    Lamar Miller and Daniel Thomas for one. Thomas had like a 3.0 ypc average and Miller was close to 5 ypc, and he rotated series with them every week.
  14. Aaron Jones 2018 Outlook

    Look...I'm starting Jones this weekend (have Howard on bye) so I"m not trying to argue with anyone here. I need him to be the guy more than anyone. All I'm saying is that the Rodgers interview that was posted was not definitive at all, and can actually be interpreted as "we like our committee". I'm also saying that Philbin always always always runs a rbbc, even when one back is light years ahead of the others (which is the case here). So just don't be surprised if Jones is in a timeshare for the rest of the year (barring injury). It would take MM overruling Philbin, and he has shown zero inclination to do so.
  15. Aaron Jones 2018 Outlook

    I'm a jones owner and I dont see at all the optimism from Rodgers comments. He sounds like a guy who knows the rbbc is here to stay and is defending his coaching staff. I hope like the rest of you that this changes but I wouldn't count on it. In otas and preseason they said they were going rbbc and we are seeing it happen. Jones outplayed Williams by a ton week 3 and we saw more rbbc in week 4. If anything, week 4 was a red flag because jones gave them every reason week 3 to play him more and they didnt.
