  1. From longtime, former Chargers head doctor, David Chao: "The expected return is a minimum of 4-6 weeks, but the team could decide to be safe and use injured reserve with the plan to bring him back. His season is definitely not over. There are even some new techniques to inject calcium into the fracture area to enhance healing and allow for earlier return." Different doctors will give different opinions. The truth is, it's too early to tell. Is 4-6 weeks too optimistic? Probably. But if you can afford it (deep league, deep bench), I'd wait to get more information.
  2. I'm in a similar situation (12 team w/ 17), and I'm holding until we get more information/progression. His fracture doesn't sound that serious and I've read reports from various "experts" that believe the 4 to 6 week estimation is reasonable. So, yeah, I'd definitely hold in leagues with deep benches.
  3. https://www.sandiegouniontribune.com/sports/pro-football-doc/story/2019-09-11/profootballdoc-hunter-henry-chargers-knee-fracture "The bad news is one never wants to have a fracture, and he will miss time. The good news is this is not season-ending, nor is it comparable to Watt’s displaced fracture that required immediate surgery. Henry should not need any formal surgery with placement of metal, as Watt did. Henry’s fracture is the kind that cannot be seen on X-ray, so it is hard to place any blame on the medical staff for allowing him to return to the game. Certainly, kudos are due to Henry for toughing it out and continuing to play. And no, there is no indication that he made it worse. The fracture was likely discovered via MRI. The team can’t risk making it worse with another blow even though he seemed to play well after. Of course, with swelling, Henry is in more pain today and it makes sense he would be using crutches. The expected return is a minimum of 4-6 weeks, but the team could decide to be safe and use injured reserve with the plan to bring him back. His season is definitely not over. There are even some new techniques to inject calcium into the fracture area to enhance healing and allow for earlier return."
  4. This is it. When Sony was on the field, Pittsburgh was anticipating the run. Belichick and co. are too smart not to realize this, so I doubt it will be a season long issue.
  5. Right, and again, is it wise to jump to all of those conclusions based on the opening week of football? In my opinion, it's way too early to be concerned. Perhaps if Chubb didn't run well and didn't touch the ball 20 times, I'd be with you. When it comes to Mayfield, yeah, he is going to make mistakes, but based on what we saw last year, a larger body of work than this one week old season, we should see better days.
  6. Is it wise to jump to all of these conclusions based on what happened in week one?
  7. There was some weird play-calling and poor decisions by Mayfield, which led to an unfavorable script, so no, I don't think there's much to be worried about yet.
  8. Truly impressed with Murray's mental game. A lot of QBs would've crumbled after such a brutal start.
  9. I don't even recall you being a dick to me, but much respect for posting this. Onward and upward!
  10. It was just one of those things - it was Hilliard's only carry and he punched it in. No RB gets every single rushing TD for their team. Chubb looked great, against a good D, and the volume is there. Also, if Mayfield hadn't consistently killed their drives, he would've had a bigger day.
  11. I think he has a real chance at finishing inside the top 5 at RB. That would make him a great value at 4 (or later) in the 1st round. That said, it's a bit risky to take him over established fantasy studs, but if you are a believer, I don't think it's an absurd decision.
  12. No one has zero question marks. Judging by how Damien Williams performed last year, the Cheifs/Reid system is clearly RB friendly. Now, obviously, Hunt is good football player (nice hands), but he's not a better athlete nor do I think he's a better runner than Chubb. When he's cleared, he might take some 3rd down work, but there's no way Chubb doesn't get 20ish touches per game all year; excluding injury. As of now, he's a safer bet than DJ and will probably end up producing close to Zeke's level. I don't have a problem with him going in the 1st round, after the big three, at all.
  13. Harris is a good (unspectacular) football player, no doubt, but Sony is an elite talent. He put some of that on display as a rookie and will only be better this year; with more experience in the system. The only major question mark is his health. If Sony is able to stay on the field and not fumble excessively, I don't see Harris as much of a threat.
  14. Add Saquon, Allen, and JuJu to that list.
  15. That is incredibly unfortunate, my dude, but that doesn't prove that fantasy football is 100% luck. It's nearly impossible to put a percentage on it. All that can be said is that it is mostly luck. I've had enough 1st and 2nd place teams bomb in the playoffs (this year is no exception) to get how you're feeling, though. Edit: My days of wasting time on this hobby are numbered.
