  1. If you're struggling at WR, now is a good time to take your favorite of the MIA team, all of which are likely FA. DeVante Parker is 10% Owned. Wk1 - 38 Snaps (76%), Wk2 - 57 Snaps (92%) Preston Williams is 2% Owned. Wk1 - 21 Snaps (42%), Wk2 - 42 Snaps (68%) If you play in a return yardage league... Jakeem Grant is 2% Owned. Wk 1 - 30 Snaps (60%), Wk2 - 38 Snaps (61%). 59 Return Yards Wk1, 44 Return Yards Wk2. (3rd in the league, and Dwayne Harris is OUT this week) I won't pretend to know which of these WRs will come out on top, but the logic isn't very complex. This is a team that will play from behind all year long, doesn't have an established running game, and a new QB is taking over the offense. At times when this occurs, a QB/WR connection can immediately show up, and you'll see one of the WRs suddenly become fantasy relevant. If you're in deeper leagues, in a tough WR spot this year (Tyreek/AB drafters at the end of the 1/2 wrap I'm looking at you) or just have a roster spot and literally no one else to pick up this week, here's a shot in the dark. Along these same lines, Golden Tate will be back week 5. Cody Latimer is OUT this week, if you have an open IR spot to exploit. Again, for those of you in Return Yardage Leagues... Sterling Shepard is back, but because Tate/Latimer are gone this week, TJ Jones last week quietly led the league in return yards (75) and also snuck in 4 targets, 3 catches, 38 yards, and a TD on just 30 snaps (48%). This is the same player who went 12/146/2 in the preseason.
  2. *Menacing texts* "Look into her background history" He's an idiot, but this is click bait.
  3. I want to emphasize that people need to understand the difference between "don't waste draft capitol on a kicker" and "kickers don't matter". Kickers absolutely matter. But in my experience, there is very little correlation to kicker draft position and fantasy output. Other than maybe LegaTron. Additionally, good managers will always seek any PPG advantage they can find, throughout the year. I spend the first 4 weeks using my kicker as an extra roster spot, and picking up whoever plays Sunday Night or Monday Night. After that, I'm looking for good offenses with terrible Red Zone success rates. I mentioned it in the Pre-Season Game thread, but my #1 target this year is the Browns kicker. (Although the CAR Kicker might be even better) Luckily CLE K (Austin Seibert) was the Monday night game last week, so that was a nice 13 point pickup. Also, if you have a QB you love to root AGAINST, picking up the Kicker of that team can have a fun effect, as you get a legit reason to against them, as it tends to result in FGs. In the name of science though: (Fair Warning, my league gives 4 for 40+, 5 for 50+, but the season long scoring site I'm using scores a flat 3 for all FG, so grain of salt) 2010 David Akers #1 2011 David Akers #1 2012 Stephen Gostkowski #1 2013 Adam Vinatieri #8 2014 Mason Crosby #4 2015 Stephen Gostkowski #1 2016 Matt Prater #13 2017 Greg Zuerlein #1 & Matt Bryant #8 2018 Daniel Carlson #29 & Brandon McManus #20
  4. I've read your posts, you seem pretty disconnected.
  5. I think you're drastically overestimating what Damien did last season. He had 2 good games. That's it. Now, let me be clear, I'm not one of the posters here laughing at Damien drafters. He was on my DND list simply due to his track record and all the hype we heard about Darwin all offseason. BUT I agree, there's logic in wanting the (assumed) #1 RB in one of the best offenses in the league. When I looked at Damien and saw the 2nd round price tag, I compared him to Derrick Henry. Another boring RB who's been trash for his entire career, but had 2 good games in 2018, and so people want to invest on hopes and dreams. The problem was, they were drafted 2 full rounds apart, at least when I was drafting. The offenses alone don't quite add up to 2 rounds in my opinion. Anyways, if you drafted him before McCoy, that's understandable. Most of the trolls in here, are trolling people who trolled them first. At 137 pages, many of them were all trash talking McCoy, saying he's just depth, won't even force a committee, has sucked for years, is injury prone, could never take the lead role, even if he does, would never be successful, wouldn't stand up to the work load, yadda yadda yadda. People who decided to take that path to defending Damien, are the ones who incite the trolls you see now. Damien was a pedestrian back, who had a 2 game breakout for Andy Reid. Just like Bryce Brown. Defending your mentality, draft pick, or logic for wanting the KC RB is perfectly valid to me. Trash talking McCoy on the other hand, is ignorant. Talking about Damien as if in 2 games last year he ended any doubt of him being an Elite RB in the NFL, was just begging for criticism. People who are still refusing to even accept that anything has changed and sticking to their guns... continue to invite trolls. Unfortunately, this forum is full of people who are so determined to be right, they'll dig their feet in, and allow themselves to get drug for 16 weeks, just hoping that it ends up working out, rather than bite the bullet and accept defeat. Everything you say is documented on these forums and can be referenced and quoted forever. 90% of this forum doesn't care about providing good fantasy analysis, they only care about being right. Stick around long enough, pay attention, and you'll quickly learn to decipher between posters interested in knowing WHY they got a call right/wrong to provide better analysis moving forward, and posters interested in knowing IF they got a call right/wrong for bragging/trolling purposes moving forward. *Don't @Me about Damien's other weeks. I don't care about the most unpredictable stat in Fantasy on a team that everyone in the world would agree is due to regress in that same stat. The catches are nice, but I didn't see you drafting James White or Tarik Cohen in the 2nd round. 5/38, 8/14, 10/49, 11/51, 10/30 are not what you look for from a 2nd round pick. 2 games, a season long stud, does not make.
  6. In situations like this, I tend to let Vegas break the tie. JAX is a 38 O/U with TEN as a 1.5 point favorite. Basically meaning they expect JAX18 TEN20 scoreboard. BAL is a 52 O/U with KC as a 6 point favorite. Basically meaning they expect BAL23 KC 29. If you can't decide between 2 players, follow the points. Hard part is if you bench Fournette and he goes off, you have to stare at those points on your bench until Sunday. If you play him and he busts, you have to stare at those points in your lineup until Monday... Personally, in leagues where he's your flex, I'm benching Fournette in favor of almost any of the WW WRs from the last 2 weeks. Terry McLaurin, either of the KC WRs, Hollywood, Agholor, etc. If he's your RB2, and the replacement has to be a RB... it's a bit muddier. Honestly both matchups look tougher than they really are. For KC: Fournette went 13/66 against them in week 1 and Jacobs went 12/99 against them in week 2. But because neither back scored a TD their points allowed looks tough. For TEN: Chub went 17/75 against them in week 1 and Mack/Wilkins went 25/133 against them in week 2. But because none of them scored a TD their points allowed looks tough. Fournette has the higher floor, because the game should be close throughout, both teams suck. On the other hand if KC gets ahead, there's a chance that game flow sends Ingram to the bench too often, while they throw, throw, and throw to try and stay in the game. Inversely, if Ingram gets the goal line plunges, then his upside is higher, but floor is lower. When that's the case, look at your opponents team this week and evaluate your matchup. What do you need to win? A nice safe floor? Or do you need to incorporate some risk/reward to pull off an upset? Then select your RB2 accordingly. If you just have to 'not lose' go Fournette. If you have to shoot for the moon, pray Ingram is the reason BAL stays in the game. Strategically speaking, Ingram early and often, is how you keep Mahomes off the field as much as possible.
  7. Eleven. 11. That's how many games McCoy has missed in 10 years as a true work horse back in the NFL. Two Hundred Eighty-Two. 282. That's how many touches he's averaged per season in his 10 year career. Todd Gurley has missed 6 games in his first 4 seasons. Zeke has missed 8 in just 3 seasons. Bell missed 16 last year alone. DJ has missed 15 in 4 years. AP has missed 34 in 12 years. Melvin Gordon has missed 9 games in 4 years, not even counting the 2 of '19. Dalvin Cook has missed 17 games in just 2 years. Fournette has missed 11 games in just 2 years. Frank Gore has missed 14 games in 14 years. Barkley is just starting his 2nd season, Kamara and CMC their 3rd. Hopefully, none of them get injured, but calling McCoy injury prone, is pretty laughable.
  8. Just curious, what's the weather like on your planet? Either you're siked or he's droppable? No in between? What a joke. Here's a list of all RBs that went 90+ rushing and a TD last week: Dalvin Cook Aaron Jones Zeke Saquon That's it. Here's a list of RBs who did it in Week 1: Cook, Saquon, CMC, Ingram. Mack rushed 25/174/1 against LAC in week 1 Kerryon rushed 12/41/0 against LAC in week 2 There are only 15 backs in the league to currently average 90 yards combined (pass/rush) through 2 weeks. Only 6 of those 15, have 2 TDs. So, Hyde is either top 6 RB this week or droppable.
  9. I always try to avoid any obvious names that have been repeated 50 times, so here's something a bit deeper. Waivers process tonight, if I didn't already own CJA, I would put in a $0-1 bid, and just see where he lands. We're talking about a guy who outproduced Todd Gurley in the same offense last year. I understand it's trendy to write CJA off, and that he's nowhere near the talent of Gurley, but he's low key an NFL caliber starting RB in my opinion. The Bucs are the only team that make sense at this point, but maybe the Redskins take a look, or another team that needs some depth. KC based on the McCoy/Damien injuries. Either way, I'm making a tiny bid, or grabbing him after waivers clear for free, and holding him for a week just to see where he ends up.

  11. There's no real way to say this without pissing people off. I love Julio, there's no one you're trading him for, even if you wanted to, I wouldn't recommend it. Yes, the TDs are a nice change, but... I'm not sure I feel overly confident in what I've seen so far this season. Only 2 weeks in, so nothing matters yet, yadda yadda. BUT... 6 for 31 in Week 1 was not inspiring. 4 for 54 in Week 2 was not inspiring. If not for the 52 yard TD on the final drive last night, the outlook of this thread could be drastically different. 10 catches for 85 yards through 2 weeks, even with 2 TDs, is not what you hope for from Julio. At that rate, you better pray he keeps getting TDs or we're in big trouble. Sure, some big weeks will come, like always. I'm not taking that play away from him, because that's the type of talent, speed, and skill he has, and can do that in any given week. My point, is that when I evaluate a player, I'm not letting 1 single catch overshadow the other 1hr and 55 minutes of play we've seen from Julio and the Falcons so far this year. Again, I'm not panicking, I'm not trading him away, but I'd be lying if I told you, I wasn't concerned with what I've seen so far. My expectations are rather tempered moving forward. Just to help illustrate my feeling. Through the first 2 weeks(prior to OBJ playing tonight) Julio ranks 8th in targets, which is fine. But only 20th in receptions, 30th in receiving yards, and despite the TDs, Julio only has 2 RZ targets so far. (Antonio Brown in just 1 game, already has 5) Yes, a 2 week sample size is too small, yes the week 1 game was not a good indicator of things to come... I'm just saying, as a fellow owner, I'm not getting blinded by these TDs. The Falcons and Julio do not look the same to me this season. Most likely it's nothing, but I do have some reservations.
