  1. The bye couldn't have come at a better time; I'm staying the course. Dude is just too good. If you've watched closely enough, you've probably noticed that he's actually settling in nicely, despite all the dysfunction surrounding him. Might not be a league-winner this year, but you'll want to be there when he inevitably goes off, probably late in the season when we're all desperate for a win. I understand if you're already in "must-win" mode and have to take risks to stay alive, but if you're in the mix, I think you gotta ride this out at least until midseason.
  2. I mean, this is the Browns we're talking about...
  3. Starting with confidence against my Birds. Bell's gonna do it all.
  4. Rumor around Philly is Jackson has a sports hernia and didn't want to opt for surgery. I have no way to confirm this, but that's the feeling among a good portion of fans right now.
  5. Normally, I'd take that kind of response as a deflection, but with this guy, it seems like a perfectly valid explanation. 😂
  6. I'm really lucky my other receivers have been picking up his slack, but there's nothing I can do with him other than start him every week and hope that the breakout games are eventually coming. I'm keeping the faith.
  7. I wonder if Gurley is the next player to try to force a trade? He seems frustrated with how the team is using him.
  8. We don't actually have a flex in my league. It's just 2 RB, 3 WR, and a TE. As a flex, I suppose he's fine. I'm generally just saying that the people panicking put a lot of stock in this guy being a surefire RB1/2. I just never had that level of confidence, but it wasn't for lack of talent. I generally just don't put that much stock in any rookie. There's usually too much uncertainty about how the their utilization and their team's situation will pan out over the course of a season. Buy into the potential, sure, but I think you need to hedge a bit on rookies.
  9. I was fortunate enough to get him in the 5th round after going RB-WR-RB-WR just based on how the draft panned out. That felt like a steal. Had I drafted him earlier as my RB2, I would've been apprehensive enough about his reliability to draft a contingency.
  10. Some of you need to be more patient; it's just week 4 of the guy's rookie season. If you drafted him as a starter then, well, you took a perceivable risk in relying on him for weekly production. Jacobs is a good player, but he's best utilized as spot starter at this stage.
  11. Should've gone with my gut and picked Seattle. Atlanta knocked me out.
  12. Firing Jacobs up for the first time tomorrow with Bell on a bye. Let's go!!!
  13. Yup, was gonna be the first week I played him.
