  1. James Conner 2018 Outlook

    How does it help the Bell owners who cuffed w/ Conner? They lose a top 3 RB and get two RB2/3's in his place.
  2. James Conner 2018 Outlook

    Restore order or bring more chaos? At best there will be a RBBC which would hurt the Bell owners who cuffed Conner AND the owners who speculated on Conner. It only really helps the Bell owners who didn't grab Conner and that's debatable since a RBBC Bell is likely only a FLEX play.

    A guy holding out to preserve his health decides to play pick-up basketball at an LA Fitness? I don't get this guy....
  4. Lamar Miller 2018 Outlook

    Yep. Had someone offer him to me right after his "big" game and I knew exactly what he was up to - couldn't hit reject fast enough. Already have the "pleasure" of owning Miller in another league and that is enough. Counting on him to find a way to disappoint tonight.

    We blame Gase. Always.
  6. Le'Veon Bell 2018 Outlook

    This sounds reasonable to me. If the Steelers struggled and Conner was doing very little then he would have been sitting pretty. However, I still think the Steelers would think long and hard if Bell says to them, "Hey, this was strictly a business decision for myself and my family and even though I may not have made many friends throughout this, I am ready to go now and you've got an opportunity to roll out a fresh all-pro RB for the 2nd half of the year - something that no other team can do. Use me however you want, I'll split carries or I'll be the top dog again." Of course, it's up to Bell to meet in the middle but if he does, and I feel like if he were smart, he would, then I think it'd be really hard to say, "nah, even though our window is closing with Big Ben and Antonio Brown, and we really want to beat the Patriots, we're going to pass".
  7. Le'Veon Bell 2018 Outlook

    Interesting post although I wish you would leave out the first three sentences. How can you be so certain? Do you work for the Steelers? I also believe he and his agent have made a miscalculation but we really wont know until the off-season. Until then, he has, at a minimum, wasted half a year of his prime (and some valuable Hall of Fame stats) on a gamble. He's also alienated one of the most respected franchises in the league and his teammates. If he does come back this season, it's going to be awkward. Of course, if he doesn't care about that and he only cares about money then that's his choice but that's not a risk I would want to take especially with how the NFL owners operate.
  8. 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.
  9. Kenyan Drake 2018 Outlook

    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....
  13. 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.
  15. 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.
