    Yea...WW pickup. He wasn't drafted in any of the 4 leagues I'm in...but we carry short rosters in all 4 leagues so Jamaal Williams was the guy everyone went for. In two of the leagues, he got picked up after he finally showed a little in week 4, only to be dropped in both of them after week 6 due to the massive under-performance in weeks 5 & 6). Picked back up again after week 8 (this is when I tried to grab him and missed in all three leagues). Only big roster leagues were drafting a guy not playing the first two games who's status was muddled with the likes of Jamaal Williams. He certainly didn't do enough through week 6 to garner a draft or WW pickup...averaging 8 touches per game...out weeks 1/2...1 TD in 4 games. It's really not that much of a mystery as to why I would say he's a good WW pickup in most leagues.

    He must be whipped today....not only because of the great game but because he had two of my fantasy teams on his back that he carried to victory last night. How awesome is it when you're you've got one player left and its your tight end and you're down 17 in one league and 23 in the other and you say to yourself..."It's a lock...I've still got Ertz going!"

    Definitely not saying he (or Mack) are RB1 material...but RB2/Flex possible yes. Maybe the missing piece for a good team that is flexing the likes of a WR2/3 with upside, or someone like Matt Brieda. I think AJ is a little more viable than Mack myself.

    This is the kind of mid-season WW pickup that we see every year that propels fantasy teams to the promised land. I didn't get him in one freaking league

    Beast Mode!!! GD am I happy I took EZ-E with the 2nd pick in two drafts...both a couple of weeks before the season started so LeVeon Bell was the pick most were making at that spot assuming he'd show up like he did the year before. Also passed on the urge to draft David Johnson who I won a Championship with two years ago. What a performance last night...won me two leagues where I was down 20+ going into the game.

    Turns out Howard was the worse call....who'da thunk it? Won both even with these bad decisions...was ECSTATIC to see him come back strong. All Aboooooaaaaard!!!
  7. Leonard Fournette 2018 Outlook

    Agreed...I have that same decision in 1 league and LF/Crowell decision in the other. I believe I'm starting Howard and Crowell until I see him finish at least one game.

    Achilles rupture is not career ending...by any means. He had the "good" rupture also...where it snapped in two. It doesn't even hurt much...you go down because it obvious that the knee bone ain't connected to the ankle bone no more...and your lower leg goes pins and needles, like it's asleep...and feels bruised at worst. You come back strong from that...back to 100% easily if you do the right work and have the right orthopedic surgeon. That bad achilles injury is when it rips off the heel bone...that's the one when you see a person laying on the ground grabbing their leg and shattering windows with their screams. Just saw that happen on the softball field a month ago...it was bad to watch. I personally had the first one and was back to 100% in 7 months. Too bad...I grabbed him because I had the room hoping to catch a nice WR2 or Flex by the playoffs. Oh well.

    That wasn't necessarily Maclin's fault.

    Ruptured my achilles about 10 years ago on the basketball court...the guys around me said it sounded like a bubble gum pop. It was damn loud in my head when it happened.
  11. Dez Bryant 2018 Outlook

    Yea...I would expect no gamesmanship from Sean Payton as he goes on the road to play a semi-tough opponent. The point is moot now however...
  12. Dez Bryant 2018 Outlook

    My contention Ian Rappaport pontificates a lot about personnel. So I guess I'll believe it when I see it...or in this case, don't see it.

    Didn't he also say recently that Josh Gordon was being disciplined for missing multiple meetings and was going to start on the bench a couple of weeks ago, then Josh proceeded to play the entire game?
  14. Matt Breida 2018 Outlook

    Can't do it...too much risk. I hope he blows up though...I'll need him Week 12 when Gurley is on a bye.
  15. Josh Gordon 2018 Outlook

    I'm almost sure in this thread there were more than one arguing his impact. Did White follow Gordon Monday Night? I was on a plane.
