  1. Jordan Howard 2018 Outlook

    Bears are 3-1 and that's all that matters. Nagy can write his own checks for a while and it appears like he's not interested in a ground control type of offense. Maybe that will change but I'm not counting on it. In a RB thin year he will still have a role to play on most fantasy teams but the dream of getting a 3-down RB1 with a 2nd round pick looks dead.

    This guy absolutely carved up the Patriots last year so obviously you don't use him in the rematch....such a brilliant mind. I'm sure Gase will get questioned about it and how much you want to bet he says something along the lines of "we have to get Kenyan more touches going forward. He's a play maker and blah blah blah". This will translate into a whopping 8 touches for Drake.

    Howard has to actually play in the football game to have value and the problem is we don't know when that will happen. So, while there is potential for it I am absolutely terrified to use either of these guys going forward because there is no consistency from the coaches and that is bad news for fantasy. Further, you can't trust anything Nagy says....Howard is a 3 down back my a__.

    Well, they tried to give Howard a token goal line carry. This is the year of the WR3's feasting...

    Don't need him. They're scoring in droves without him. Can't really argue with the results. Hopefully get some garbage time carries....
  6. Odell Beckham Jr. 2018 Outlook

    Agree with this. So far, it's been huge QB output and the pass catching RB's and WR2's that have been dominating the scene. Beckham, Hopkins, Julio (ok maybe not Julio) should start getting their share of the TD's and we'll see them take their rightful spot at the top. Not worried.

    I can see this happening but not because they want to teach him a lesson or make him suffer for not reporting. I assume that once he reports he will be getting those big game checks and the Steelers know he's not coming back so they might as well use him. He's better than Conner and since they want to win they are going to use him plenty if it means winning games. Plus, if they envision Conner as their bell cow next season they can save some wear on him in the process. Bell probably will get eased into it once he reports but I still think he's going to get used plenty if/when he returns.
  8. Isaiah Crowell 2018 Outlook

    I totally get it. I wasn't thrilled rolling him out last night but it worked out. I actually traded for him as a depth piece since in this league you can never have enough serviceable RB's and that's what he is. He's a 4-7 point RB with potential to spike in the 15+ range especially if the matchup looks good. I will not be using him vs Jax next week although if anyone has a decent case for it I'm all ears.
  9. Isaiah Crowell 2018 Outlook

    I agree. For example, Crowell got two carries when the Jets were pinned down at their own 1-yard line. They just wanted to get the bruiser in to get some breathing room and those carries are almost guaranteed to get a yard or two at most. Conversely, he'll get the same opportunity when he's at the opponents 1-yard line .
  10. Isaiah Crowell 2018 Outlook

    Yeah I'm not advocating using Crowell every week, especially in a 12-team league. I used him in a 14-teamer over Lesean McCoy in a 3-WR league where I went WR heavy. I understood he could easily have ended up with 5 points and that's how it goes sometimes but he also has the higher ceiling because of the TD potential which Powell doesn't have. Even still, I think you're downplaying his touches though. Maybe I'm crazy but ~15 touches is pretty solid these days.
  11. Isaiah Crowell 2018 Outlook

    I was just responding to the guy who was trying to make a case that because Powell has out-gained Crowell that Crowell is a RB4 and/or a drop. I believe Crowell is useful for fantasy purposes in good match-ups precisely because he is the Jets G/L back -- the yardage is secondary and I don't really care if he averages 2 YPC if he gets a few goal-line looks. Sure, he wont score every game but his likelihood of scoring is much higher than Powell and, in a deep league, I'm going to roll the dice on the guy who can score TD's. And I have to disagree that he isn't getting consistent touches. He's had 10,12,16 rush attempts and a handful of targets in each game. Factor in that a lot of his touches are G/L work and that's not too shabby.
  12. Isaiah Crowell 2018 Outlook

    We understand that Crowell is not very good -- he's not Alvin Kamara. But this is a weird game where a guy can rush have 1 attempt for 1 yard get 1 TD and outscore a guy who rushed 10 times for 60 yards. Does not make any sense but as long as the scoring is that way, guys like Crowell have value, especially in deeper leagues. So, I'll continue deploying Crowell (strategically) and you can keep deploying Powell or whoever it is that is a "good" running back. All I know is that so far, Crowell is wiping his ___ with Powell for fantasy purposes.
  13. Isaiah Crowell 2018 Outlook

    I'm starting in a deep league due to limited options and the belief that he is the G/L back. Basically crossing my fingers that he will get a handful of carries around the end zone...
  14. Julio Jones 2018 Outlook

    Standard operating procedure for Julio. Will be listed with minor stuff all week every week and then suit up and not score TD's.

    Any word if he will start the Thursday game against the Cubs?
